The Greatest Show On Earth
It’s amazing how after 4 1/2 years of Obama the facade is wearing thin. Many of us knew from the beginning that Barry/Barack Soetoro/Obama was thrust onto the national political scene because he was in the right place at the right time….and the right color. The American people elected an inexperienced community organizer who could read a teleprompter to be the leader of our country. Twice. And now with all the scandals swirling around this administration, it’s blatantly obvious that Obama is – and has always been – in over his head. Yet he manages to finess it by going on late night talk shows and showing up at a New Jersey boardwalk with Chris Christie.
Here’s a great read from Victor Davis Hanson that truly captures Obama’s essence. An excerpt:
“Never has a president so mastered the patois and cadences of an intended audience: with corporate CEOs, he sounds like a Ivy League Citibank exec; with foreign-policy types, he can out-authenticate the multicultural experts with accentuation like “the Taleeeban” and “Pakeeestan.” Among African-Americans, he drops his g’s, affects the slight drawl of the South, inserts an old-time Southern colloquialism, and follows the mannerisms of a Rev. Wright thundering at Trinity Church. Among Latinos, the “r” is rolled, and accent marks fall in the proper places, better than any third-generation Latino evening-television newsreader. In short, Obama is the most impressive sophist of his age.” You can read the rest HERE
That’s a lot of Easter Egg Rolls. Former IRS Commissioner Visited WH More Than Twice As Often as Eric Holder ”The massive number of visits raises serious questions about Shulman’s activities in the White House. As IRS commissioner, he reported to Tim Geithner at Treasury, not anyone in the West Wing. Shulman, in fact, had more than three times as many visits to the White House as his nominal boss.”
Texas Passes Bill To Train Teachers As Armed Marshals ”Under the bill, trained teachers would keep a firearm in a lockbox “within immediate reach.” It allows one armed marshal per 400 students and contains provisions to hide the name of that marshal from public record, to keep him or her from being purposefully targeted in an attack.” YEE HAW – GO TEXAS!!!!
ICYMI: Students at the University of Colorado in Boulder signed a giant thank you card to the IRS for targeting the Tea Party. You know….those enemies of Obama. Totally.
The next Obama scandal? Sebelius Under Fire For Obamacare Fundraising Bypassing Congress ”According to Sen. Alexander, this fundraising scheme is similar to the Reagan-era Iran-Contra scandal in that money has been funneled from private entities after Congress had intentionally withheld appropriations, circumventing the constitutional requirement that only Congress has the power to appropriate funds.”
Speaking of Reagan.…here’s a blast from the past that Carl found. A Saturday Night Live spoof on Reagan being much smarter in real life than how he was typically portrayed. With Obama, we have the opposite. Enjoy the ‘good old days.’
