Unlike most of you, whom I suspect had the good sense to skip this week’s State of the Union speech, I endured the predictably insufferable spectacle of Barack Obama blathering on as he read from his trusty TelePrompTer, piling one lie on top of another. (After all, I watch so you don’t have to.)
Suddenly, in the middle of another phony talking point, I thought of “the Oprah”. The once-again rotund, race-baiting former talk show star didn’t pop into my head because of the faux controversy about that Selma movie, although I do find it interesting that for the second year in a row, Hollywood has released another movie in which the Oprah gets to pretend she’s living in the days of Jim Crow. Is she feeling a tad guilty that, in the words of the old cliché, she has more money than God, especially since, like Barack Obama, if anything her race was anything but a disadvantage?
Silly, low-information people, especially emotionally driven females, eager to prove how much they despise the idea of icky racism, wore their adoration of this woman as a badge of honor. They loved that show! Remember when she used to have that “Favorite Things” show, and give everybody thousands of dollars worth of expensive stuff? For Heaven’s sake, even I sent my sister one of those pot pies that she featured as one of her faves, and then there was the time …OK, you caught me. I am doing anything to avoid talking about last night’s TV waterboarding, delivered by a man who claims to abhor torture. You could have fooled me last night.
The reason I thought of the Oprah was because I remembered her December 2009 interview with our Dear Reader, in which she asked him what grade he would give himself for his first 11 months in office. He replied that he would give himself a “good, solid B-plus.” Of course, we knew that was another in an endless series of Obama lies. There isn’t a chance that this narcissist admits the possibility that anything and everything he does, including his last bowel movement, doesn’t deserve an A++, but he didn’t want to say that. It’s tempting to say that he deserved an “F” then, and that he deserves an F now, but I disagree. This guy deserves a “D,” as in “delusional,” “despotic,” “deceitful,” “destructive,” and, of course, “demagogic.” During last night’s speech, he put on a clinic on all of those unfortunate aspects of his personality and his presidency.
I won’t belabor his dishonest characterization of our stagnant economy, which he has declared fixed under his able stewardship. Even the AP isn’t buying that. I will reserve my comments for the end of his seemingly endless drone fest, in which he invoked memories of his famous (or some would say infamous) 2004 speech at the Democrat convention in Boston. Remember that? That was the unintentionally hilarious rant in which this race-hustling, phony, hard-wired leftist empty suit who crawled out of the stinking slough of political corruption that is Cook County pretended to be Mr. Beautiful, a man who believed that there was no liberal America or conservative America, only the United States of America. It was the beginning of one of the most successful cons in American history, roughly the equivalent of Bernie Madoff preaching on uncompromising integrity as an essential quality of investment advisers.
Barack Obama proudly outed his past as a “community organizer,” confident that the average person didn’t realize what that meant; specifically, a person whose objective is to stir up rage, resentment and a sense of entitlement in poor people, especially poor black people. In any rational universe, his past employment as a community organizer should have disqualified him from serious consideration as President, since Alinskyism, aka Marxism, is directly at odds with our Constitution.
In the decade since he made the 2004 speech, he’s exhorted ethnic mascot groups to “punish their enemies”, continued the class warfare he waged during his days in Illinois politics, accused physicians of performing unnecessary surgery to line their pockets, and demonized law enforcement. Still, last night, he had the audacity—a word his mentor, anti-American screeching racist pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, just loves—to urge us to adopt a “better politics,”
“[O]ne where we debate without demonizing each other; where we talk issues, and values, and principles, and facts, rather than ‘gotcha’ moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives.”
You mean “gotcha moments or trivial gaffes,” like “binders of women” or “the 47%?” “[F]ake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives”, like a pet dog’s treatment during a family vacation 20 years earlier?
“A better politics is one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter, and spend more time lifting young people up, with a sense of purpose and possibility, and asking them to join in the great mission of building America.”
“Drowning in dark money?” Since when does this guy, who never met a fundraiser he didn’t like, think that’s a problem? “[A]ds that pull us into the gutter”, like the one in which the 2012 Obama campaign practically accused Mitt Romney of killing a man’s cancer stricken wife?
Is he delusional or just so arrogant that he doesn’t give a hoot about the breathtaking hypocrisy of his remarks? I’ll leave it to you.
Of course, as Al Gore allegedly stated, a leopard doesn’t change his stripes, and so, right on cue, Petulant Barry made an appearance. Just after he delivered these solemn, pious remarks, he couldn’t resist the chance to ad lib a childish, snarky quip about how he won two elections, one that revealed what should have been obvious; specifically, that the pretty words he read to his long-suffering audience were a steaming pile of …lofty platitudes, and a demonstration of why he is incapable of leadership or constructive competent governance.
