The re-election campaign of Barack Obama is beginning to resemble an old party balloon, the gas that kept it aloft slowly leaking out, the once-twinkling foil with its faded message of “Hope and Change” lopsided and collapsing as it steadily deflates, the string that anchors it loosely to the back of an empty chair the only thing preventing it from sinking to the sawdust …
In Charlotte, Red Barry’s narcissistic Chairman Mao-like sand sculpture, fashioned to awe those hardy leftists still planning to attend the Socialist … uh, Democratic National Convention, is attacked by the elements, a driving rain washing away, appropriately enough, the right side of the grinning effigy. In Colorado, a public university offering to trade course credit in exchange for work on the Obama campaign cancels the proposition due to “lack of interest”. At Ft. Bliss, the so-called Commander-In-Chief is greeted with mostly sullen silence by the men and women in uniform. The Special Operations forces whose heroics he has exploited for political advantage want him gone. He is being sued by his own immigration agents because his policies are contrary to federal law. Active duty officers are citing the sort of political correctness championed by Barack Obama as being detrimental to the future of the U.S. Army while decrying the obsequiousness of bureaucratic Pentagon planners who value career more than country. Dinesh D’Souza’s anti-Obama motion picture is number eight at the box office. Challenger Mitt Romney is raising funds in even the most traditional citadels of unbridled liberalism, while the Obama camp engages in deficit spending — the one thing at which their candidate excels. And while delusional surrogates like Bill Richardson can claim as much as they want that the so-called ‘international community’ strongly desires another term in office for Hussein Obama, American citizens whose economic well-being has been ice-picked by the incumbent Marxist might have other ideas.
The momentum that is building against their favorite son has distempered the media. No matter. Our supposed watchdogs guard one house only these days; and though they still bark, they no longer carry much of a bite. Even a braying old hound like Bob Schieffer of CBS feels compelled to pin the tail on the donkeys, reminding scapegoating Jackasses that “George Bush is not on the ballots.” There’s probably quite a few Democrats who wish that Barack Obama wasn’t either.
The first human to set foot on the moon passed away last week. The President of the United States subsequently saw fit to honor the late Neil Armstrong in that inimitable Obama way: by posting a picture of himself:
[…] Obama took to his tumblr page to offer a tribute to Neil Armstrong. The words–two sentences–are fine in a generic politician way. But, Obama being Obama, he injected himself into the tribute. He included a photo, not of Armstrong or the iconic step onto the lunar surface, but of himself, gazing up at the moon.
And, like the annoying cousin who manages to insert himself into all the photos of the family reunion, Barack Obama has insinuated himself into the official White House biographies of former presidents:
At this rate, it won’t be long before we see his imperious visage defacing our currency. Well, that won’t matter — the stuff is almost worthless anyway.
