Update: Glory, glory, mighty, mighty. This has to be one of the most memorable quotes of the day:
It is transparent. That’s why we set up the FISA court…. The whole point of my concern, before I was president — because some people say, “Well, you know, Obama was this raving liberal before. Now he’s, you know, Dick Cheney.”
If the Darth Vader costume fits, wear it.
If you voted for Chicago Barack Obama and got a wittle biddy bit upset over some or all of the Obama scandals, you can now go back to lighting incense to your god. “Transparent” he says. What a laugh! Of course to us Barack Obama is indeed transparent – we see right through him – and his lies.
Drag a dollar bill through a sewer and you’ll find Barack Obama. Add two zeroes… or one, and you’ll find Michelle Obama. We say this because all of a sudden, after years of flim-flams some Obama supporters are scratching their heads and wondering who Barack Obama really is. Where did their love go? Hells bells, we answered those questions years ago in The Case Of The Missing State Senator.
Its taken them this long to ask these questions? To start wondering and wandering? The mindless young and the color-over-character black Americans who supported Barack Obama in two national elections are increasingly tired of being barebacked by Barack:
“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says Keating Holland, polling director for CNN. “It is clear that revelations about NSA surveillance programs have damaged Obama’s standing with the public, although older controversies like the IRS matter may have begun to take their toll as well.”
The survey, released Monday, also shows that 50 percent of Americans say they don’t believe Obama is “honest and trustworthy,” for the first time in his presidency, according to CNN.
These dolts are finally understanding our catechism:
“Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.”
“Like Bush before him, President Obama faces a credibility crisis.
There is a common element to the so-called Obama scandals—the IRS targeting of conservatives, the fatal attack in Benghazi, and widespread spying on U.S. journalists and ordinary Americans. It is a lack of credibility.
In each case, the Obama administration has helped make controversies worse by changing its stories, distorting facts, and lying.
The abuse of trust may be taking a toll on President Obama’s reputation.
A CNN/ORC poll of 1,104 adult Americans June 11-13 shows the president’s job approval rating at 45 percent, down 8 percentage points in a month. [snip]
This month, only 49 percent of Americans say Obama is honest and trustworthy. That is a 9-point drop since May 17-18.”
“Who is he? Obama keeps allies, enemies guessing in second term
Five months into his second term, allies and enemies are as confounded as ever about who President Obama really is.”
So who is Barack Obama? We answered that question in The Case of the Missing State Senator and in The Obama Health Plan Obama Supporters Do Not Want To Discuss.
Because the mindless young and others who voted for Barack Obama, (sometimes twice and sometimes in the same election we might as well add), do not like to read or in any way tax their minds we’ll shorten those two articles rather miraculously into one sentence: “Barack Obama will in flowery terms tell you what you want to hear but after you vote for him he stabs you in the back.”
“When it came time to defend the defenseless or protect and enrich the powerful. Obama made a decision. He protected his powerful friends and provided them with even more government money. Same old Chicago politics. The poor shivered in cold tenements. Obama bought a new house. Now he wants a bigger White House to entertain his Chicago friends.”
Put a dollar bill in Obama’s g-string and he’ll follow you anywhere. In January of 2008 the New York Times gave minimal attention, but more than it does now, to the real Barack Obama:
“When residents in Illinois voiced outrage two years ago upon learning that the Exelon Corporation had not disclosed radioactive leaks at one of its nuclear plants, the state’s freshman senator, Barack Obama, took up their cause.
Mr. Obama scolded Exelon and federal regulators for inaction and introduced a bill to require all plant owners to notify state and local authorities immediately of even small leaks.”
That’s how the article began. This is what the article concluded:
“A close look at the path his legislation took tells a very different story. While he initially fought to advance his bill, even holding up a presidential nomination to try to force a hearing on it, Mr. Obama eventually rewrote it to reflect changes sought by Senate Republicans, Exelon and nuclear regulators. The new bill removed language mandating prompt reporting and simply offered guidance to regulators, whom it charged with addressing the issue of unreported leaks.
Those revisions propelled the bill through a crucial committee. But, contrary to Mr. Obama’s comments in Iowa, it ultimately died amid parliamentary wrangling in the full Senate.
“Senator Obama’s staff was sending us copies of the bill to review, and we could see it weakening with each successive draft,” said Joe Cosgrove, a park district director in Will County, Ill., where low-level radioactive runoff had turned up in groundwater. [snip]
Since 2003, executives and employees of Exelon, which is based in Illinois, have contributed at least $227,000 to Mr. Obama’s campaigns for the United States Senate and for president. [snip]
In addition, Mr. Obama’s chief political strategist, David Axelrod, has worked as a consultant to Exelon.”
And you young fools, black fools, liberal fools, fools’ fools thought you had a chance? Stupid is as stupid does.
It’s not just freezing tenants in Chicago, nor Exelon, that should clue the clueless. There is also ObamaCare. You know that ObamaCare is a gangster government enforced extraction of of your money to give to the insurance companies right? You do know by now that ObamaCare is welfare for insurance companies right?
Did you ever read about The Obama Health Plan Obama Supporters Do Not Want To Discuss. If you want to know why ObamaCare sucks, your money from your pocket to give to health insurance companies that will give you little in return read about the father of ObamaCare.
The father of ObamaCare is the corrupt Obama of Chicago. It’s the same old story with Obama – excoriate insurance companies in public then make deals favorable to them in private. That’s not the only reason ObamaCare sucks (the life out of you and the money out of your wallet) but if you’re wondering why ObamaCare sucks so bad, start there.
After that, you might begin to hunt for the missing president who appears to disappear every time the cops come around. Like us you might begin to ask yourself Where’s Obama?
When the going gets tough, when answers are required, Obama is the disappearing president. That’s not new to us. On our very first day of publication in April 2007 we noted Obama’s missing votes and missing presence when it was time to get things done. In September 2007 we named this phenomenon The Presence Of Absence.
The “missing president” is now touted by some as a smart strategy to govern. According to this debauched view of proper governance the best way for Obama to get things done is to disappear. Immigration reform, say these advocates of irresponsibility and invisibility, will pass if Obama disappears behind drapes and Michelle’s ample, um, profile.
But for those of us that believe the best way to govern is to propose good policies, explain them honestly to the public with care not to be too too clever, then exert as much effort and influence acquire the legislative votes necessary, this “presence of absence” strategy is fools’ gold.
Barack might try to pass immigration reform by hiding behind tapestries and under rugs but we think that as of now immigration reform is dead. We’ll be proven correct eventually if there is any truth to this report: Boehner won’t bring immigration bill to the floor unless majority of House Republicans support it.
Advocates of amnesty or what is now called “immigration reform” might do well to remember that Obama made a lot of promises to them before and during his first term – none of which materialized. Young people who expected glorious CHANGE got their pockets picked with only some change left to jingle jangle in their pockets.
Liberals? Hell you got rendition, abuse of civil liberties, FISA, lobbyists, a vegetable garden tended to by someone other than Michelle, DOJ targeting and intimidation of real journalists, and the NSA national security state. Happy?
Blacks? See the disappearing black middle class? See your unemployed young? See affirmative action disappearing (probably next week)? Take a look around if you are an African-American that put the bro ahead of the… well you know what they called Hillary – and realize you are in a Monty Python film. One day all this will be yours.
If you think Barack Obama is standing by you, look again. He just disappeared. You can find him if you look for the person he really is, not the one you imagined.
