Obama Sahib Flashes The Bling

Obama To Use Teleprompter For Hindi Speech (Hindustan Times)

“Indian politicians are known for making impromptu long speeches and perhaps that is why some parliament officials, who did not wish to be named, sounded rather surprised with the idea of a teleprompter for Obama.

‘We thought Obama is a trained orator and skilled in the art of mass address with his continuous eye contact,” an official, who did not wish to be identified because of security restrictions, said.”

“Probably not since the days of the Pharaohs or the more ludicrous Roman Emperors has a head of state travelled in such pomp and expensive grandeur as the President of the United States of America.”

Even the Indians, residents of a subcontinent with a long history of lavish display, are astonished by this man’s grandiosity–and equally dumbfounded by his infatuation with machines that tell him what to say.  A long familiarity with the slight-of-hand and legerdemain of home grown swamis and fakirs has rendered the Indians somewhat suspicious of conjurers, but their tricksters are usually traveling mendicants, not skittish heads of state that show up accompanied by a flotilla of warships and an entire kennel of bomb-sniffing dogs.

    Most Americans have seen the Obamessiah for what he truly is, a ZERO.. Now, the world gets a real taste of his hollow nothingness…

    Bloomberg called the O the “most arrogant man I’ve ever met” – http://townhall.com/tipsheet/GregHengler/2010/11/06/mayor_bloomberg_obamas_the_most_arrogant_man_ive_ever_met – meanwhile Mr. & Mrs. O do the boogaloo in Bombay & continue to spout the “religion of peace” swill. Oh, happy days…

  3. Synchronicity! I, too, posted about BHO’s use of the teleprompter in the Indian Parliament.

    This is good all round Bob. Everything is just right from the cartoon and the pictures to the variety in the article.

    Obama Sahib, gosh darn that is good.

    He has gone to India on an Ego Trip and to solidify his Indian Vote Base at home [very clever] but he doesn’t know the Indian Continent or the people. They are great showmen themselves but among themselves. Sahib Obama may overplay his hand.

      I’d recently been reading a few memoirs by veterans of the Indian Mutiny in the days of the Raj, and the “Obama Sahib” title popped into my head. Possibly because of the U.S. mutiny at the polls on November 2nd.
