Obama aides to Obama: stick to the script, stupid

While the traditional media lauds President Obama for his ability to read a speech, the presidential debates suggested he needs to stay on teleprompter all the time (even though the American voters failed to punish him for his in-office and on-stage performances). Dear Reader and all that.

But what about the President’s ability to stay on-topic as it regards… say, Syria and the President’s “red-line” policy on the Syrian use of weapons of mass destruction? In such cases, it appears to be even more important he stay on teleprompter, especially if he doesn’t have Candy Crowley to sway the axle of evil foreign powers of North Korea and Iran. Oh, and it seems Syria can be added to the axle as well (is this now the tricycle of evil?).

From the New York Times on the Obama’s Syrian policy and the President’s self-created “red-line” blunder box:

“The idea was to put a chill into the Assad regime without actually trapping the president into any predetermined action,” said one senior official, who, like others, discussed the internal debate on the condition of anonymity. But “what the president said in August was unscripted,” another official said.

Our President: the man who believes his own self-described b.s., who is better with policy than his policy makers, who writes better speeches than his speechwriters, and who is clearly pulling some sort of unending Jedi-mind trick… on himself.

While any president has a hard job, to paraphrase John Wayne, it becomes much harder when you’re stupid.

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.
