As the last grains of sand fell through the August hourglass Barack Obama boobed and boobed again. Like a fall squirrel whose cheeks are stuffed with nuts Obama left no boobery behind. The last hours of the month ended as the month began – with boobery. Boobery flowed. It was an spectacular August of Boobery. In the annals of boobery Barack Obama and August 2011 will forever be at the top.
But two September days in, the question must already be asked: Can Barack Obama ever top his record of August boobery? It appears the answer is: Yes He Can!
Technically it’s an August boobery but it is reported on in September so it qualifies as boobery in the new month – yup, we’re talking job numbers. Zero job growth. To make the boobery worse, the June/July jobs created numbers have been downgraded by 58,000 jobs so forget about the Verizon strike excuse.
Unemployment – the way to celebrate Labor Day when a boob is gifted the White House based on skin color. Obama’s boob reaction to the Big Zero? Time for a long weekend Camp David vacation to recover from that long vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. Obama does not care that you know he does not care.
Technically, it is not boobery but outright corruption but September already has a month’s fill of corruption. Consider:
“Valerie Jarrett, a close friend of the Barack and Michelle Obama is the former CEO of Habitat Company, which managed Grove Parc, a federally subsidized apartment complex on Chicago’s South Side that can be accurately described as a slum. Jarrett is now a senior adviser to the president.
On Wednesday with great fanfare the awarding of a $30.5 million federal grant to revitalize Grove Parc–by tearing it down–was announced.
The irony is thick here. Jarrett’s Habitat runs Grove Parc into the ground, and now the federal government funding its demolition and the building of its replacement.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Sen. Dick Durbin, and US Rep. Bobby Rush attended the Grove Parc ceremony. Jarret was not there. In fact, no mention of her role in mismanaging the unhappy homes was mentioned by the Chicago Sun-Times or the Chicago Tribune.”
Could we please have a Special Prosecutor armed with Tasers and instruments of torture and torment not just a vigilant blogger to get to the bottom of the Obama Chicago corruption?
“House investigators said they have uncovered evidence that White House officials became personally involved in an Energy Department review of a hot-button $535 million loan guarantee to the now-failed California solar company Solyndra. [snip]
Thursday’s letter, which calls on the White House to turn over correspondence between administration officials, Solyndra and its investors, presents the most pointed suggestion that the White House had direct involvement in the financing.
“How did this company, without maybe the best economic plan, all of a sudden get to the head of the line?” Upton told ABC News in an interview this week. “We want to know who made this decision … and we’re not going to stop until we get those answers.”
In 2009, the Obama administration hailed the Solyndra loan as the first in a series of federal infusions for “green energy” firms that held the potential to clean up the environment and create jobs. But earlier this week, Solyndra abruptly closed its doors, announced it would file for bankruptcy and laid off more than 1,100 workers.
While Energy Department officials steadfastly vouched for Solyndra — even after an earlier round of layoffs raised eyebrows — other federal agencies and industry analysts for months questioned the viability of the company. Peter Lynch, a longtime solar industry analyst, told ABC News the company’s fate should have been obvious from the start.
“Here’s the bottom line,” Lynch said. “It costs them $6 to make a unit. They’re selling it for $3. In order to be competitive today, they have to sell it for between $1.5 and $2. That is not a viable business plan.”
Other flags have been raised about how the Energy Department pushed the deal forward. The Center for Public Integrity’s iWatch News and ABC disclosed that Energy Department officials announced the support for Solyndra even before final marketing and legal reviews were in. To government auditors, that move raised questions about just how fully the department vetted the deal — and assessed its risk to taxpayers –– before signing off.
The White House’s Office of Budget and Management viewed the arrangement as a riskier bet to taxpayers than DOE had. That forced the government to set aside millions more in case of a default, iWatch reported last month.
Republicans in Congress have raised questions for months about the Energy Department’s decision to make Solyndra the poster-child for the green energy loan program. They expressed concern that so much federal money was headed to a company whose key investor was George Kaiser, an Oklahoma billionaire who raised more than $50,000 for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.”
Happy Labor Day Solyndra ex-workers – don’t forget to vote for Obama in 2012! And pay your taxes you soon to be layabouts, you’re not personal Obama friends (like Warren Buffett) to not pay taxes. Losers!
“Just hours after the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, federal officials tried to cover up evidence that the gun that killed Terry was one the government intentionally helped sell to the Mexican cartels in a weapons trafficking program known as Operation Fast and Furious. [snip]
Also late Thursday, Sen. Charles Grassley’s office revealed that 21 more Fast and Furious guns have been found at violent crime scenes in Mexico. That is up from 11 the agency admitted just last month.”
Sometimes it is a fine line between corruption and boobery just as there is a fine line between a criminal cover up and simple bumbling. Don’t get mad at us if we can’t filter it all and mistakenly put some “corruption” crimes into the “boob” category. From now on we’ll add “corrupt” when we refer to Obama as a “Treacherous Boob”. “Corrupt Treacherous Boob” – there, that sounds better.
“New e-mails obtained yesterday by The Los Angeles Times show at least three national security officials received information about Operation Fast and Furious. An anonymous administration official says these e-mails don’t prove anyone in the White House knew about the covert “investigative tactics” used in the program — but they do show William Newell, then the ATF field supervisor for Arizona and New Mexico, was in close contact with Kevin O’Reilly, director of North American affairs for the White House national security staff, between July 2010 and February of this year.”
“Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.”
Was either Lucy Ricardo or Ethel Mertz in on this? Nah, those are smart, albeit a touch wacky, women. They wouldn’t be so boobapalooza. Don’t blame our depression era sweethearts either.
The month of August began with unprecedented Obama boobery. There was Obama stoking Wall Street panic and debt deal boobery right from the first day. And who could forget the fundraising birthday boy and Satan?
August got so bad many strapped on the Pink Grenades. An earthquake struck but Obama stayed on vacation. Steve Jobs left due to illness and many mourned but millions will cheer when Obama gets run out of town.
Uncle Obama made an appearance too in August. And don’t think that
drunk and deadly Uncle Obama is going away anytime soon.
Oh yes there was unprecedented Obama boobery in August. But September shows great potential already.
The Thursday night battle with the NFL, upset the Boob will mess up the pre-game coverage, is sure to entertain. The Boob is not doing that well with NASCAR drivers either, who have better things to do than meet with the Boob-In-Chief. Get ready for cries of “racism!” and “disrespect” (which appears to be the JournoLister word of choice today).
Obama fellator Capehart is whining about respect. The New York Times shouts “racism disrespect”. Of course Capehart and the other Obama fellators forget that Tip O’Neill told Ronald Reagan a final “NO” when Reagan wanted to speak before both houses of Congress. Presidents are not kings and the Congress is a co-equal branch of government.
Obama’s cult has to be worried about September. Michelle Obama is yanking sleeves again and is clearly unhappy. Big Media outlets are beginning to notice what we have discussed and publicly raising the glum Michelle Obama versus Barack Obama rift. Michelle is upset with the boy raised by wolves.
Guess Barack is right, she is “cold and ungrateful“. Ordinarily we don’t care about the personal lives of others. But…. if you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House.… can you Michelle?
September will hold a lot of surprises. As we’ve written, there might be some big Hillary news, unless Obama does as he is told. Ralph Nader might actually get a slate of candidates to beat up on the boob. That speech on Thursday is sure to anger the left or the right or the center or all three at once. That speech will be a masterwork in the annals of boobery.
August was a month of unprecedented boobery. Can Obama top himself this September? Yes, he can.
