Like Sasquatch in a swamp, Michelle Obama is fur-ious. The White House dogs get a swift kick in the underbelly. Sleeves on dresses get viciously yanked. Sasquatch fear roams the halls. Angry.
It’s bound to get worse. Outside of the Whine House walls Michelle has to pretend to be OK. Publicly Michelle Obama has to smile. But this volcano is smouldering. It’s about to blow!
But the eruption will have to stifle itself until after the elections. Here’s what happened to set off Sasquatchian Micheelle:
Last week Michelle Obama campaigned for Bruce Braley in his race against that strong woman Joni Ernst. Michelle Obama was not happy. First she had to leave the Whine House for something other than a luxury vacation. Second, well, she had to work without pay which goes against her convictions as a Chicago native who thinks anytime she does something cash should cross her palms.
Michelle could barely unstick her eyelashes for this unwanted task. MOO continued to ostentatiously elevate Bruce Braley as a super terrific guy with super terrific credentials. But MOO knew so much about Braley she repeatedly called him “Bruce Bailey”.
“Bruce Bailey” is so terrific that you must vote for Bruce Bailey” mooed MOO. “Bruce Bailey” is just what Iowa needs” MOO mooed. Not until a shout from the fields that the name is “Bruce Braley” did MOO use the right name. It was a very damaging moment. How do we know it was a damaging moment? Because the Washington Post ordered up a long, tedious, article to defend MOO and explain to us all how we form words and why MOO is really just so wonderful and just ignore her stupidity and blame cognitive processes for the fact that she did not even know the name of the candidate she shilled for. MOO also said he was a Marine when Braley has never been a Marine.
MOO had to be roused from her comfy bed and expensive meals to campaign for Bruce Braley. That’s because Barack Obama is poison to campaigns. So MOO had to be herded out to the fields of Iowa to pretend and mispronounce.
To repay MOO after he milked her publicity value Bruce Bailey, er, Braley, paid her back with a sour note:
Iowa Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley, who is currently locked in a tight Senate race, used a Congressional hearing about Ebola on Thursday to critique the Obama administration’s response to the outbreak.
“I am greatly concerned…that the administration did not act fast enough in responding in Texas,” Braley said.
“Is that the thanks I get?” screamed MOO. “I go campaign where there’s no arugula and Wagyu steaks then Bailey turns around to attack us???” MOO said as she kicked Barack.
“Reggie please”, er, “Honey please” replied Barack, “ya gotta understand, ya gotta help. Ya gotta calm down and just hang on for a few more weeks, please. Then you can take an extra long, extra luxurious vacation for the next two years. We just gotta get through this because a Republican senate might begin to investigate and then vacations are off.” “OK” MOO gritted out as she applied yet another kick to her Whine House dog.
Then it got worse.
Instead of MOO protection and Ebola Barack protection, Whine House spokesclown Josh defended Bailey, er Braley. Said spokesclown Josh:
“Well, Mr. Braley is somebody that has a reputation for being willing to speak truth to power whether they are in the same party as him or not,” Earnest replied, when asked by reporters about his comments. “I think that this is another indication that he is willing to do that.”
We gather the Whine House now agrees with the critics who denounce Ebola Barack for the Ebola response mess.
Then it got even worse for MOO: she’s gonna have to campaign again for Bailey, er, Braley.
If Moo wants to continue to swallow those smooth Wagyu steaks and suck down that Champagne she must do the unthinkable: work.
Why? For one thing the Whine House Obamas do not want a Republican controlled Senate uncorking their thus far hidden scandals. Additionally, the Whine House Ebola Obamas have lost political support. Let’s face it, Obama is probably going to impose travel restrictions on West Africa. It’s just a matter of time and one more infection.
Already, in one high profile race, an Ebola flip-flop:
Democratic senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina was emphatic earlier this week that instituting a travel ban on those attempting to enter the United States from West African nations ravaged by the Ebola virus was “not going to help solve the problem.” Hagan’s Republican opponent, Thom Tillis, had been one of the first candidates for office to suggest the ban.
“That’s not going to help solve this problem,” said Hagan Wednesday when asked about Tillis’s position. “That’s not going to contain the epidemic that we see happening in Africa.”
But in a statement released Friday afternoon by her official Senate office, Hagan appears to have changed her mind.
“I have said for weeks that travel restrictions should be one part of a broad strategy to prevent Ebola from spreading in the U.S. and fighting it in Africa,” said Hagan in her statement. “I am calling on the Administration to temporarily ban the travel of non-U.S. citizens from the affected countries in West Africa. Although stopping the spread of this virus overseas will require a large, coordinated effort with the international community, a temporary travel ban is a prudent step the President can take to protect the American people, and I believe he should do so immediately.”
Hagen did not dig herself out of her freshly dug Ebola hole. Hagen followed her statement on the travel ban with praise for the CDC. Talk about stupid.
In defense of Ebola Obama and his Ebola policies Kay Hagen is in the process of political suicide. Why defend the bumblers at the CDC? And why call for a travel ban with such insincerity?
Not only is Senator Kay Hagen a weasel. Senator Kay Hagen is a RACIST!:
While we’re speaking “truth to power” the “liberals” at New Republic are racists too:
We Should Quarantine Everyone Coming From Countries With Ebola Outbreaks
An infectious-disease specialist says the time for half-measures is over [[snip]
Medicine can be a very humbling profession, and after more than 30 years of practicing infectious-disease medicine, I have learned that the “unanticipated” happens all too often, especially where microbes are involved. Over the last two weeks, the rosy scenarios painted by the Centers for Disease Control have lost their glow and started to unravel.
The fact that Ebola is transmitted by bodily fluids and not by the respiratory route provides no guarantee that there won’t be an outbreak in the U.S. or Europe. [snip]
There is a real possibility that the numbers will proliferate more rapidly than expected. Here are four problems that could contribute to this: [snip]
Quarantine is one tool that has been successfully employed in the past; currently, it is being underutilized. I would maintain that every individual traveling here from a country with an active outbreak—currently Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Nigeria—should be quarantined. [snip]
If the quarantine could be established prior to travel, then virtually no cases would be imported from West Africa.
Well, they’re not advocates for a “travel ban”. They just say let’s have
concentration quarantine camps or something. That’s the ticket. That’s so much more politically correct.
There do seem to be reasons to PANIC say some. Others are busy in full Ebola Obama protection mode and in disregard for what is best for the United States. Here’s Sam Stein in full American Horror Story clown costume:
Sam Stein’s Awful Argument Against Travel Ban: Helps America But Hurts West Africa
The last time we looked, Barack Obama was President of the United States, not of some other country. So if a ban on travel into the United States by people from Ebola-ravaged countries in West Africa would help America, isn’t it President Obama’s obligation to impose it, even if it might hurt those African countries?
On today’s Morning Joe, HuffPo’s Sam Stein twice acknowledged that the ban might “help America.” Yet he argued against the ban on the grounds that it would hurt West Africa and make it harder to track people fleeing those countries. You sensed Sam’s heart wasn’t entirely in it, and when he finished Joe Scarborough thanked him, saying he was going to hit Stein’s weak offering out of the park, as that SF Giants batter did last night in the ninth.
Scarborough’s counter was that there needs to be a two-pronged approach: a travel ban coupled with greatly-increased American efforts to help stop the epidemic in Africa, thus getting the disease under control and quelling panic that could send people fleeing abroad.
STEIN: The nexus of the problem with Ebola is not in America it’s in West Africa. And until you get the situation in West Africa under control we will never be actually out of the woods with respect to Ebola. So when you look at a travel ban you have to look at it holistically. What does it mean not just for America but for West Africa? Basically every health official–maybe with a few exceptions–has said that if you do a travel ban it may, in fact, help America but it will make the situation in West Africa a whole lot more complex and a whole lot worse. People will panic — [snip]
So yes, you might help the situation in America but the situation in West Africa is exacerbated and made worse. That’s the point.
SCARBOROUGH: Sam, I want to thank you —
STEIN: I tried my best.
It’s all a joke to Sammy. Why not tell the truth? Stop the apologies for Barack Obama. We can quarantine travel from West Africa and provide assistance to West Africa. Panic in this country will not help West Africa. Panic in this country will have adverse effects, such as anger, against West Africa.
Ebola Obama’s response to this and every crisis is the same: SEND IN THE SPIN DOCTORS! You might as well send in the clowns.
Instead of a leader to coordinate the American response against Ebola. Instead of medical expert Obama hired a SPIN DOCTOR to fight EBOLA. It’s always a “communications” problem with this clown.
An Ebola Spin Doctor will not alter the political landscape. Obama Dimocrats will not be saved by a last minute change in the polls. It’s a much too late to stop the Republicans from a takeover of the Senate and a likely powerful wave election in the House. The Macaca Dimocrats are on their way out.
There’s not much MOO and her bovine husband can do at this point. All they can do is take the insults. Take the slaps in the face. Take all the slaps in the face that are so richly deserved.
The big slap in the face will hit in November.
