However, the President’s speaking performances in the last week suggest his staff needs to get him back into his box (or onto a basketball practice court). As it is, rhetorically, Obama is pushing deep into—literally—Biden territory.
Since the traditional media has slept-walked through the last four-plus years and they have the President’s back all they way, they won’t call him on it, but at some point, Dear Media, don’t you get tired of carrying this guy’s bags? Of playing the fool? Of refusing to comment on the fact the emperor has no clothes?
And how does Barry bumble? Let us count the ways:
- He says the Sandy Hook psychopath used full automatic weapons
- He says the California AG is the hottest in the land
- He says “the truth is, our deficits are already shrinking.”
- As an added bonus, his Administration suggests it’s the U.S. Navy’s fault the Norks are in full psychopath mode
Remember ‘smartest president ever’? That’s now as laughable as ‘most transparent administration ever.’ (Or ‘smartest vice-president ever.’)
All this as Michelle Obama goes full-gaffe herself and claims to be a single mom. (Except not too many single moms get $10 million in taxpayer money for their vacations.) While it may be a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll, it apparently isn’t a long trip from FLOTUS to FSMOTUS (pronounced fizz-mote-us).
In the meantime, the President may want to pay more attention to his kill list.
It’s enough to make you long for the plainspoken wisdom of Joe Biden.
Whoops… forgot to set the sarcasm font on that last sentence.
Barack Obama: the President who made Jimmy Carter look like John Wayne on national security; who made Bernie Madoff look like Milton Friedman on the economy; who made Joe Stalin look like… ah, drat! (The similes bag just emptied. Had a hole in the bottom, apparently. Still, the problem is nothing a tasty grant from the National Endowment for the Arts—it’s stimulus!—won’t fix.)
Obama part deux will not end well. Just ask Ron Paul or David Stockman.
Joe Biden has a fever and the only cure… is more Joe Biden.
“He’s intoxicated by the idea [of a 2016 presidential run], and it’s impossible not to be intoxicated by the idea,” said a Democrat close to the White House. And the intoxication is hardly new. Officials working on the Obama-Biden campaign last year were struck by how the vice president always seemed to have one eye on a run, including aggressively courting the president’s donors. Obama aides at times had to actively steer Biden to places where he was needed — like Pennsylvania — because he kept asking to be deployed to Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states.
Joe’s intoxicated? I’m shocked, shocked.
That means America should demand an intervention. However, if 2012 is the new voter-intelligence standard, it seems the USA, writ large, will have the greater intervention need.
Biden, if elected, could become our second transcendent president in a row (and the first who is developmentally challenged).
Bruce Springsteen is a man who sings as if he’s blown-out an o-ring and is inexplicably called ‘The Boss.’ He was once an angsty rock-n-roller; now Springsteen’s been reduced to an aged-out sing-and-raise-money guy for the left. Ah, Glory Days.
Joe Biden is a gaffe-master and is the epitome of why politicos have spokesmen. While Joe often traffics in more than mere gaffes—trending towards drooling idiocy—he remains well-known for accidentally telling the truth.
And it seems Bruce Springsteen has accidentally spoken the truth, ‘freaking out’ over Dear Reader being crushed like a grape during the first debate. If only David Axelrod had pre-briefed Bruce on the party’s approved talking points…
When a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, it still makes a noise.
When Barack Obama makes a gaffe in the public arena, it still makes a noise. But as with the tree, no one hears the noise. Why? Because the media fails to address the gaffe. It’s not too much unlike explaining away our daily Bidenisms: that’s just Joe being Joe (which is media code for this: he may be a total idiot, but he’s our total idiot).
Barry seems to think the bodies of four murdered Americans are a speed bump in his record of foreign policy achievement, right up there with the Russian reset and rebuilding the American image with the Muslim world.
The good news is he’s stopped the seas from rising.
The President’s apologists are in full denial regarding his “you didn’t build that” gaffe.
For a politico, a gaffe can take many forms, but it will normally be either: 1) saying something that’s obviously true but is politically incorrect, or 2) saying something you actually believe (but will be poorly received) with your out loud voice.
Barry Oh!, the greatest orator of all time and our most intelligent president ever, blundered on the second form of gaffe.
This means that post-gaffe, the Obama team is reduced to asking “What are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?”
Tim Cavanaugh destroys the deniers in full at Reason.com.
And while man remains the only creature capable of lying to himself, we’re finally starting to get more insight into what Obama really thinks.
Based on the magnitude of this particular gaffe, Barry is making a run at Joe Biden (who holds a huge quantitative lead) for the title of Administration GaffeMaster Flash.
GaffeMaster Flash asserts the U.S. economy is in the septic tank because Democrats lost the House in the 2010 elections.
He ignores why the Republicans took the House in 2010: Democrats.
Mankind is the only creature who can lie to himself and Joe Biden has an advanced degree in denial.
Joe Biden, AKA GaffeMaster Flash, is at it again. The guy never ceases to amaze: he’s less ethical than Spiro Agnew, less truthful than Al Gore, less benevolent than Dick Cheney, and less graceful than Gerald Ford.
I suppose a tumor might explain much of Biden’s behavior, except he’s been this way for decades.
And in this man-bites-dog world, Joe Biden epitomizes the very Administration and President he serves.
So when Joe attempts to assign blame to the George W. Bush administration—gee, that’s an original position to take, and for Biden, clever—as it regards Iran’s nuclear weapons program, he once again has the facts upside down, sideways, and backwards.
From Marc Theissen:
●Before Obama took office, Iran had zero known centrifuges producing uranium enriched to 20 percent (which can be converted to nuclear weapons fuel in a short amount of time). Today, they have more than 1,000 centrifugeschurning out this dangerous, near-bomb-grade material.
●Before Obama took office, Iran had no stockpiles of this higher enriched uranium. Today, Iran has 73.1 kilograms. (It needs just 85 kilograms for a bomb.)
●Before Obama took office, Iran needed months to make a dash to a bomb. Today, it could make that dash in a matter of weeks.
That’s not all. In December 2011, Iran’s deeply buried Fordow facility went operational and Iran is now producing near-bomb-grade uranium at this hardened facility. Iran has also more than doubled the number of centrifuges operating at its infamous Natanz facility — from 3,936 when Obama took office to 8,808 today. Moreover, in the past several years, Iran has expanded the development and testing of advanced solid-fueled ballistic missiles — so that when it does make the decision to make a dash for the bomb, it also can make a dash to deliver it as well.
The bottom line is this: The Iranian regime has developed a rapid nuclear weapons breakout capability on President Obama’s watch.
And the worst part? Compared to the Administration’s domestic policy, their failures regarding Iran’s nuclear program look fairly modest.
Joe’s brain long-ago achieved room temperature which makes him an excellent fit with the rest of the Administration. But the problem is not so much their intelligence; it’s their initiative.
How comfy cozy is the liberal cocoon? Pretty tight.
First you have Maureen Dowd—she’s the snarky one with observations generally several decades past their sell by dates—asserting Hillary Clinton is absolutely groovy.
Hillary Clinton cemented her newly cool image and set off fresh chatter about her future…
Then, you have Joe “GaffeMaster Flash” Biden saying Al Franken is a leading legal scholar.
“He has been one of the leading legal scholars,” Biden said of Franken today, according to the pool report. He also said that Franken “is deadly serious” as a senator. He made the comments while recalling concerns that then-candidate Franken could not be taken seriously as a Senate candidate given his SNL work.
The reality: Hillary is about as cool as a microwave and Franken is as sharp as a marble. Biden is somewhat less sharp than Franken; more like a Nerf marble.
Your results will not vary.
