Update: Obola on the loose:
Man in Obama mask and hazmat suit hangs ‘Obola’ posters across Chicago
For once it’s Barack Obama frightened by horrible news, not the usual Obama horrifies America.
Barack Obama woke up this morning and had two big scares. First he read that a judge had issued a restricted movement order against a nurse in Maine who has dealt with Ebola patients. Video: Maine judge orders Hickox to restrict her movements). Barack was not so scared that this was yet another repudiation of his policies. Something else haunted him.
The judge banned the churlish nurse from public places which scared the bats out of Obama’s belfry. Barack figured, “If they quarantine this nurse, am I next? After all people are calling me “Ebola Obama” because I am political death. No more of the public rallies I crave.” This kept Barack awake and thanking his volcano gods that at least he did not have to look at Michelle now that they have separate beds.
Shortly thereafter however, Ebola Obama got another shock which shook him into more shocks. Ebola Obama read this:
What happens when your friend’s smartphone can tell that you’re lying [snip]
Moodies, an app developed by Beyond Verbal, is able to detect a speaker’s mood based on nothing more than a voice. Worldwide call centers are testing the technology to help operators determine whether callers are upset and likely to switch their business to a competitor. [snip]
One thing is for sure: politics is in for a major overhaul. With every smartphone possessing a virtual lie-detector test, elected officials will need to be creative in the ways they talk to us. In fact, my fear is the most insecure and most powerful politicians will resist, and quickly seek to regulate or restrict these technologies — ignoring their obvious good — in a hidden but discoverable attempt to preserve their own power and half-truths.
A Barack Obama that is unable to lie is a Barack Obama that cannot breathe. A smartphone lie detector would be very much as if everyone had a Big Pink website about to detect every Obama lie. That is a real Obama Halloween Horror.
The third Halloween Horror to visit Barack Obama is the news. The American people think he is a treacherous boob and they are about to vote out Obama Dimocrats in an historic rejection of Ebola Obama:
President Barack Obama is about to do what no president has done in the past 50 years: Have two horrible, terrible, awful midterm elections in a row.
In fact, Obama is likely to have the worst midterm numbers of any two-term president going back to Democrat Harry S. Truman. [snip]
Obama had one midterm where his party lost 63 House seats, and Democrats are expected to lose another 5 to possibly 12 House seats (or more), taking the sitting president’s total midterm House loses to the 68 seat to 75 seat range.
Most recent presidents have one disastrous midterm and another midterm that was not terrible. [snip]
Democrats lost 6 Senate seats in 2010 and seem likely to lose from 5 to as many as 10 seats next week. That would add up to Obama midterm Senate losses of from 11 seats to as many as 16 seats.
For Barack Obama it is about to be a long Halloween which won’t end on Tuesday night but will last possibly the rest of his miserable life. For America the Halloween that does not end started in 2008.
