The New Republic on Obama’s Haplessness

When The New Republic writes an article on the President’s White House haplessness, you know the liberal/progressive-failure warning light is illuminated steadily.

The TNR take is as follows:

We’ve just witnessed an episode of political strategy of such creativity and nerve that journalists and political consultants may well be talking about it decades from now: Barack Obama’s reelection campaign recast Mitt Romney’s most formidable asset, his business career, from an image of a successful investor in startup businesses, to that of a trimmer, manipulator, tax-evader, and destroyer of value.

Of course this example of creativity and nerve has nothing to do with governing America or helping to better it with effective policies. It’s all about running a campaign and getting elected/re-elected, which the article goes on to address.

Left unsaid with regard to the above referenced creativity and nerve campaign approach is that most Americans know Obama is the very face of an anti-trimmer (illegal welfare reform undo; food stamp nation; more people on disability than getting jobs); political manipulation (the “stimulus,” “green jobs,” legislation via regulation and executive order); tax-evader; and destroyer of value (massive unemployment and debt growth, effectively stealing from savers and future Americans).

And the final Obama “accomplishment”? Canadians are now doing better than we are.


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
