Obama: Heard It Through The Grapevine

“It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till he transforms us into beasts.” — Patrick Henry

Mad As HellIt doesn’t matter whether it’s the IRS targeting the Tea Party or the Department of Justice spying on reporters. The claim from Barack Obama is always the same. Why, he heard about it on the news same as you! And he’s mad as hell, same as you! See? He’s just a regular guy. And so it is again, we’re told, with the emerging scandal at the Veterans Administration.

Two problems, however: 1. He is not just a regular guy. He’s the president, and these people work for him. If this sort of thing keeps happening on his watch and he just hears about it on the news like the rest of us, then someone needs to get a little basic instruction in executive management. 2. Why would anyone believe him when he says he didn’t know about it? It’s an all-too-self-serving story, made all the more so by the fact that his chief of staff tells harrying tales of incurring “scars” while briefing the president, and oh by the way, you know Obama is pouring lots of money into the VA, right?

For Obama, the objective of governing is never to govern well. It’s simply not to be blamed when governing proves the inevitable failure you get with inept leadership …  (CFP)

When Obama Resigns

Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the political establishment to protect Barack Obama, they can no longer hide the incompetence and criminality of the most divisive and sordid administration in American history.

Former National Security Council Spokesman Tommy “dude, this was like two years ago” Vietor is the poster boy of the Obama Administration; a collection of inexperienced, emotionally immature ideologues, whose “the ends justify the means” mentality permits them to tell any lie, violate any law and indifferently sacrifice lives as long as it serves their political objectives.

This bungling and scandal-prone gaggle of amoral nitwits, led by a talking teleprompter, survives only because the extent of their dishonesty is matched by that of the political-media establishment and the public’s inexplicable willingness to tolerate it(Accuracy In Media)

    …so, correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t those well-paid “czars” that the muslim-in-chief hired (illegally!) supposed to keep him in the loop, up to speed & highly informed of all local, federal, state & world issues? WE are “mad as hell” if he must resort to getting his Intel from “the media”.

  2. You may be interested in my blog post, King Solomon and Empty Suit Politicians, for an added perspective to your post. Sadly, there are too many in government today in my opinion.

    Veitor was the one sitting in the so called situation room. Not Hillary, not Obama, probably not even our ga Val. Says it all.

  4. Nancy Pelosi called Harry Reid into her office one day and said, “Harry, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2014!”

    “Great Nancy, but how?” asked Harry.

    “We’ll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most Middle Class Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador retriever. Then, we’ll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there.”

    So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman, Montana. With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar.

    The Bartender took a step back and said, “Hey! Aren’t you Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?”

    “Yes we are!” said Nancy, “And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Harry suggested we stop and take in some local color.”

    They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.

    A few minutes later, a grizzled old rancher came in, walked up to the Labrador, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out. A few moments later, in came another old rancher. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar.

    For the next hour, another dozen ranchers came in, lifted the dog’s tail, and left shaking their heads.

    Finally, Nancy asked, “Why did all those old ranchers come in and look under the dog’s tail? Is it some sort of custom?”

    “Lord no,” said the bartender. “Someone’s out there running around town, claiming there’s a Labrador Retriever in here with two assholes!”
