The Campaigner-in-Chief

Filed under: Obama,Politics — DRJ @ 8:03 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

CNN pins down how President Obama put politics first when he missed a Gulf memorial service to jet off to a Barbara Boxer fundraiser back on May 25. Today Obama resumed his political quest to blame someone else for the Oil Spill, in this case the Tea Partiers:

“Some of the same folks who have been hollering and saying ‘do something’ are the same folks who, just two or three months ago, were suggesting that government needs to stop doing so much,” Obama said. “Some of the same people who are saying the president needs to show leadership and solve this problem are some of the same folks who, just a few months ago, were saying this guy is trying to engineer a takeover of our society through the federal government that is going to restrict our freedoms.”

It’s everyone’s fault except Obama’s. He even blamed the media for focusing on his lack of passion because it makes “good TV.”

Expecting government to do its job in cleaning up the BP Oil Spill is not a justification for Obama’s massive deficits; his takeover of the banks, the car industry, and healthcare; or his repeated bailouts, pork, and stimulus projects. Except to Obama.

  4. The same old question- is it ineptitude, or skillfully seeking an outcome he wants that most others don’t.

    From what I’ve heard the last few days, there has been the offer from the Danes that was ignored, there was the offer from a company in Maine that makes booms that was ignored, and there was an offer from someone in Texas about skimmer ships that was also ignored. If we keep in mind the saying to not attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence, we have:
    1) a bunch of people who aren’t paying attention at first because it wasn’t on their agenda
    2) people starting to pay attention, but stuck doing what bureaucrats do, shuffle things around and check protocol
    3) people looking for a way to “not waste this crisis” politically

    If the one continues to play this right, he will:
    – have the Europeans wondering if he’s too dumb or is it arrogance that makes him refuse help
    – moderate Repub Senators in Maine turning their backs on him
    – Kevin Costner and all of his Hollywood friends disillusioned with him
    – bringing name recognition and positive PR to Bobby Jindahl

    Keep It Up, President Obama!!!

  5. Expecting government to do its job in cleaning up the BP Oil Spill is not a justification for Obama’s massive deficits; his takeover of the banks, the car industry, and healthcare; or his repeated bailouts, pork, and stimulus projects.

    I think a critical part of any job success comes from a clear understanding of the expectations of you, and clearly understanding the job description. It seems that is where our president gets confused.

    He is the very person who has pushed to increase the provision and presence of government in our life and society while simultaneously encouraging citizens to put their hopes and expectations in that very same government.

    Yet he bristles when he faces criticism, putting the blame elsewhere when his administration can’t meet those expectations.

    It’s ironic because he is the one who has put himself in this catch-22.

  6. Sometimes I think Obama is both inept and calculating. I think he and his supporters advocate a socialist agenda and they “never want a serious crisis to go to waste” in pushing that agenda. But like most socialists in history, they don’t do it very well.

  8. Over at PowerLine they have a new story up where the Obama Admin tried to say the 6 month moratorium idea was backed by a panel of industry experts when the opposite is true.

    Their concluding thought: So this looks like one more instance where the Obama administration is neither honest nor competent, and where its first instinct seems to be to pursue the course that will most damage our economy.

    MD in Philly (5a98ff)

  9. There is no leadership experience with Obama and yes, his ivory tower life is pushing socialism and anyone who gets in the way (you or me) will be ‘un-American” (Pelosi) or ‘domestic terrorists’. It’s the Chicago mafia way of politics.

    I strongly recommend u read that new book out about the govt. declaring martial law on a small town in AMerica & calling them ‘domestic terrorist’ as the town stands up to the govt. It’s a great read & do recommend it. It’s great.

  14. This is his classic “straw man” routine that he uses for everything he does. In this case the ficticious people that would have prevented him from saving the planet to save a couple of bucks. Here’s an idea, Mr. President… earn YOUR money by doing your job and while you’re at it get the lard asses in your Administration and on the Federal payroll to do theirs.

  15. VN – Thanks for the AT link. Good stuff.

  16. Glad you liked the link. Someone posted how we never did hear much about the grandmother. Here she raised this historic man-child so why no tribute or primetime media fable. It was just well, she died… and that was it.

    The lines from that college poem are creepy (Pop).

    I also call him incompetent but I don’t think he’s incompetent at all. He’s on a strict mission to get it done, in an increasingly shrinking amount of time. That’s what I think of most with the delays on BP and the lack of interest with the spill.

    Great link VN — thanks.

    It is no Academic Transcript or Term Paper, but here is Obama’s poem in full (from the New Yorker):

    Pop

    Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken

    In, sprinkled with ashes,

    Pop switches channels, takes another

    Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks

    What to do with me, a green young man

    Who fails to consider the

    Flim and flam of the world, since

    Things have been easy for me;

    I stare hard at his face, a stare

    That deflects off his brow;

    I’m sure he’s unaware of his

    Dark, watery eyes, that

    Glance in different directions,

    And his slow, unwelcome twitches,

    Fail to pass.

    I listen, nod,

    Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,

    Beige T-shirt, yelling,

    Yelling in his ears, that hang

    With heavy lobes, but he’s still telling

    His joke, so I ask why

    He’s so unhappy, to which he replies…

    But I don’t care anymore, cause

    He took too damn long, and from

    Under my seat, I pull out the

    Mirror I’ve been saving; I’m laughing,

    Laughing loud, the blood rushing from his face

    To mine, as he grows small,

    A spot in my brain, something

    That may be squeezed out, like a

    Watermelon seed between

    Two fingers.

    Pop takes another shot, neat,

    Points out the same amber

    Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and

    Makes me smell his smell, coming

    From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem

    He wrote before his mother died,

    Stands, shouts, and asks

    For a hug, as I shink, my

    Arms barely reaching around

    His thick, oily neck, and his broad back; ‘cause

    I see my face, framed within

    Pop’s black-framed glasses

    And know he’s laughing too.

    For those who want more, here is the second one (same source):

    Underground

    Under water grottos, caverns

    Filled with apes

    That eat figs.

    Stepping on the figs

    That the apes

    Eat, they crunch.

    The apes howl, bare

    Their fangs, dance,

    Tumble in the

    Rushing water,

    Musty, wet pelts

    Glistening in the blue.

    I’m starting to actually feel bad for this guy. It never even dawned on me that he may have a serious mental problem (of course, so much was hidden about his past, especially childhood…). It does explain quite a bit, especially his inability to evolve and get better on the job (he still is blaming Bush — hardly the behavior of a professional leader).

    Thanks again VN.

  21. Larry Sinclair, oh yeah. That guy doesn’t seem to be a crackpot at all. In fact, I think we’re well beyond tinfoil hats now with that story. Especially reading HillBuzz.

    And that Kal Penn thing was very open and obvious right after the inauguration, appointing some actor to a made-up cabinet post. The affair ends (allegedly an affair) and the guy gets mugged of his cell phone.

    Now I know why the mother-in-law lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

  24. No – the only thing about a ‘girlfriend’ is the Vera Baker story, which HillBuzz debunked. A diversionary thing to cover up the Kal Penn bromance, which led to the dustup with him being mugged.

    There’s some mention of a blond socialite in NY who supposedly dumped Obama.

    I’d buy your argument if there were signs your leftist, pro-pushy-big-government, Euro-socialized preferences had been moderated or certainly eliminated over the past several months, or since you entered the White House. But I don’t see any indications of that. So, in effect, the one time your inner self might have served you properly, you screwed up.

    You end up being a variation of a liberal who behind closed doors actually is a hard-nosed garden-variety racist/bigot. IOW, if you can’t at least be good in the one — the ONE — area that reflects well on the stereotype associated with your ideology, you’re worthless!

    Come to think of it, you did sit for years in Jerimiah Wright’s church and happily listened to his racist, bigoted tirades. So you truly are a big ZERO, or in sports parlance, an 0 and 2.

  28. That is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s playbook.

    Don’t whine you didn’t see it coming. Turn it back on him. Publicize the North Eastern plastics company that has a huge stock of oil containment booms they built on speculation and can’t get anyone to purchase. That’s the same people ignoring this stock as are whining about how bad the disaster is. Go for it and stick the White House on a rotisserie spit and roast until all done.

  29. ““Some of the same folks who have been hollering and saying ‘do something’ are the same folks who, just two or three months ago, were suggesting that government needs to stop doing so much,” Obama said.”

    More classic Obama fingerpointing and misdirection. “Those people” were arguing that Democrats should not expand the government more into areas it was never intended to get involved with. Slightly different than getting involved in an event occurring on a tract of ocean leased from the Federal Government. Mendoucheous twatwaffle.

    daleyrocks (1d0d98)

  30. The Maine company in question states that they can make 90,000 feet of containment boom every day. That is more than fifteen miles of boom every day. Apparntly BP said they are interested but the Obama admin has told them they are not permitted to buy it. (Speculation revolves around whether or not the company is a union shop.)
    I have not myself confirmed this story.

  32. that Robin from Berkeley article was kinda dumb I thought and I’m understating how dumb I thought it was… I think it more than suffices to note that he’s simply a not even remotely presidential person.

    happyfeet (19c1da)

  33. This will sound crude, and my wife (and my friends) really hate it when I put it in such stark terms…but his mannerisms, his constant whining, the need to blame everyone but himself, his entire personae never said anything to me except what a big pussy he is. Most guys all know the kind of guy he’s represented through many generations – someone who has no core, no center – a huge wuss, the kind of guy who feels the need to talk trash while running away at the same time, screaming to teacher “no fair!” It makes me sick.

    Dmac (3d61d9)

  34. BTW, you can probably imagine what kind of get – togethers we have these days. Politics is now always off the table for discussion – and all because of the big old meanie that’s secretly a member of the Riechstag. I remind everyone about their stated reasons for voting for this man a few years ago, and none of them ever gave me a clear answer, preferring instead to deal in airy nothings and nostrums of idiocy. They don’t like to be reminded of any of it now, but since I had to take it when I voted for Bush, they can’t take it when it’s my turn to dish it out.

    Dmac (3d61d9)

  35. Obama’s constant finger pointing and blameshifting makes me wonder what Michelle has to put up with at home.

    I actually think it’s the other way around in this instance – she wears the pants, while he takes his frustration out on the rest of the country.

    Dmac (3d61d9)

  36. Have Blue, This was about them not being unionized?

    It’s 2010! That doesn’t matter anymore! A lot of our coastline is going to be messed up for generations because Obama was having a passive hidden war on non-union labor? What a dumbass!

    How many union jobs are going to be lost because of this stupid policy. I guess that’s always the termination of the union cycle… fewer jobs.

    dmac, that is crude, but that is the most disturbing thing about Obama. Whatever it is that he truly believes, he’s not willing to show us those cards and defend himself. His supporters basically claim he was playing politics with Rev Wright, had to promise tax cuts for triangulation, has to play some game to eventually get us to single payer. Lord knows what the hell he has in mind for foreign policy.

    It’s not just disturbing because of the ‘OMG CONSPIRACY’, but because this guy doesn’t seem to have any confidence in his basic views.

    Dustin (b54cdc)

  37. Dustin, my recent exchange with his lovelorn supporter Muron pretty much said it all IMHO – Muron comes across as a complete Poncey – Boy, with all of the ridicule that the term entails. Birds of a feather, his remaining supporters see themselves in him, with facades of civility hiding the empty meanness and hatred of their own country. Even worse, they all seem to employ the rhetoric of being too – cool – for – school and are ultimately viewed as having nothing left but cynicism when it comes to their core beliefs.

    It took far too long, but we’re seeing the beginnings of a real and lasting distaste among the majority for this POTUS and all of his infantile minions. I have a strong feeling that he’s actually going to be ultimately viewed as being far more feckless than Carter ever was, and that’s a frightening prospect.

    Have you ever seen the great 1950’s flick “A Face in the Crowd,” by Elia Kazan and starring Andy Griffith and Patricia O’Neal? Remarkably on point for this one.

    Comment by Dmac — 6/12/2010 @ 11:14 am

    Dmac – that is so true.

    Full disclosure: I cannot stand former President Carter.

    With that said, he was a US Naval officer and served as a nuclear engineer. These are not trivial things, nor for the faint of heart.

    When the Three Mile Island reactor failed and released radioactive particles into the air, Mr. Carter did provide leadership. He actually went to the site and walked the grounds without protection, when it was not fully known if the environment was safe. He did it to alleviate the tension felt by local Pennsylvania residents and the nation as a whole; probably his greatest moment as a leader.

    Our current President has nothing — no exceptional experience, brilliant education, or distinguished achievements. He has no convictions that adhere to a logically consistent moral core.

    His unbreakable embrace of mediocre standards, along with his incompetent management style and lacking-leadership skills, marks him as a poor President. His inability to achieve coupled with his need to blame such failures on others, marks him as a poor man.

    Given the same situation as Mr. Carter, President Obama would never had made that walk. Not even because he would be scared, but more so because it would never dawn on him that such an act was important (but I bet he would have managed to find time for a golf game, and not even think anything wrong or inappropriate with that).

    Pons Asinorum (0ae484)

  40. “…His unbreakable embrace of mediocre standards…”

    I am reminded of a comment made by a Senator many years ago in response to a criticism of a SCOTUS nominee that he was “mediocre” (or words to that effect), and the response was something to the effect that “even the mediocre in America deserve representation on the Bench”.

    Well, now they have their President!
    All I can say, is I hope once is enough.

    This will sound crude, and my wife (and my friends) really hate it when I put it in such stark terms…but his mannerisms, his constant whining, the need to blame everyone but himself, his entire personae never said anything to me except what a big pussy he is.

    The hub described the president in the same terms just this morning. I don’t mind the crudity because it is, very unfortunately, fitting. I’m glad I’m married to someone who recognizes the inherent flaw in our president, hasn’t been sold a bill of goods and refuses to give him quarter.

    happyfeet @ 8:36 am,

    The Robin of Berkeley article was a bit troubling to me. And I’m not referring to the president but rather the psyche evaluation she posits without ever even having talked to the President. There was a lot of assuming taking place. And I’m not sure what we’re left with other than what we already know – he had a less than optimal upbringing hence a boatload of baggage as an adult (and who doesn’t?) and he’s making a lot of bad decisions for our country. Is that necessarily the result of a psychological illness or psychosis, or just the natural default position of a someone delusional about their political philosophy’s substance?

    Dana (1e5ad4)

  45. Sorry for spamming this to another thread but I am really interested if anyone else sees it the same way I do. (from the Not-So-Super-Obama thread.)

    Anybody see the picture that FOX used to illustrate the phone call to British PM Cameron? Released by the official White House photographer. Obama in what looked like a polo shirt. Anyone else struck by anything in the photo?

    Have Blue (854a6e)

  46. Er, thanks, DRJ. Not sure how well I’m going to sleep with that image around…

    Red County Pete (9ccdf1)

  47. I tried to google up the polo shirt but it didn’t show enough, as far as what to look for.

    Also, good point about a professional diagnosing without actually seeing the person. Fair point. I guess that Robin of B is giving a blog-style analysis based on the myriad public examples, comments and choices made by Obama. I thought the Cambridge officer helping Obama’s friend down the Whitehouse steps was telling. Obama’s response to Honduras, the death of Neda, the Iranian protestors, the thin-skinned problem… Speeches filled with I I I.

    And I’ve never been able to understood why people thought this guy was cool. I think he missed his calling in Hollywood, except for the fact that he is destructive and he does hate America, so politics became a natural path. And I’m not looking for Bush-style compassion from any president. All he really needs to do is show up, work and act like an American. (For neo-progs, this means quit isolating 1/2 the country as evil, corrupt and stupid.)

  49. ____________________________________

    Is that necessarily the result of a psychological illness or psychosis,

    It’s possible that a diagnosis of mental illness is appropriate when someone’s philosophy goes off the deep end. For instance, I suspect something is defective in the brains of avowed extremists, including Communists, Fascists, Islamocists, etc. I theorize the part of the mind that influences common sense, and which keeps that from being overwhelmed by clueless, knee-jerk emotions, is broken in such people.

    I won’t go so far as to accuse Obama of outright extremist behavior, but he may flirt with it on more occasions than certainly a down-to-earth person would. There’s something definitely wrong with an individual who sat in a church for 20 years and wasn’t turned off by the radical, fanatical rhetoric of a Jeremiah Wright. And there’s no question that when it comes to common sense and basic logic, Obama appears to suffer from some form of mental deficiency.

    Actually, I do think his refusal to protect federal waters during and following a crisis is extreme. As in radical. Agenda. These cumulative responses are no longer scholarly or measured.

    Government has its place, although the types over at ZsaZsa’s blog seem to think pro-market conservatives want no government at all.

  52. “what makes you believe she puts up with anything?”

    redc1c4 – I have no doubt Obama whines and whinges with the best of them at home, “I didn’t make that mess”, blaming the girls, etc., but whether he is allowed to get away with it is a completely different question.

    daleyrocks (1d0d98)

  57. daleyrocks, did you guys know he was doing this stuff back in his days as a promising young state senator? I only heard about it a few months ago. I mean, not counting the Larry Sinclair story… which all of a sudden fits.

    Vermont Neighbor (5841cd)

  58. VN – I had not heard about Man’s Country and crap like that. I had heard from friends who worked for the state that he was an undeservedly arrogant snob who was really just an empty suit. His left wing record was there to see for anybody who bothered to look, which was why his handlers tried to clamp down so hard on anybody looking into his time in the Illinois Senate, the Annenberg Challenge, the Joyce Foundation, ACORN, and similar affiliations. They did not want the truth getting out. David Fredosso’s book in 2008 was a great warning piece.

    daleyrocks (1d0d98)

  59. I fell for Tiger Woods’ squeaky-clean image, or at least assumed he never could be as easily negatively caricaturized as he ended up being, before all the publicity on him broke wide into the open.

    By contrast, I don’t have even a fraction of any reason to give Obama the same benefit of the doubt. A major reason is that his flaky, leftist politics do make it more plausible that if his public trappings are ever fully ripped away, a pretty sleazy underside will be revealed.

    After all, if rightwing politicians can be surprisingly unbridled when it comes to private social/sexual matters, it’s that much more of a given that leftwingers really will be at the front of the line when no-shame, anything-goes activity is occurring.

    I recall an editorial in a Japanese newspaper after the election in 2008 saying that no US president with such a pockmarked background as Obama had ever gotten into the White House. That writer’s comment may have underestimated just how scroungy that background really is.

    Mark (411533)

  60. Amazing. It’s also interesting that you have friends who knew Obama, back when he was being packaged for worldwide distribution.

    I honestly thought the guy’s campaign was over, or would be over, as soon as people heard about Wm. Boom Boom Ayers or the racist stuff from Wright… or the dealings with Rezko. How times have changed. Of course the global money and Soros touch really sealed the deal.

    Vermont Neighbor (5841cd)

    Vermont Neighbor (5841cd)

  62. VDH nails it – government by faculty lounge.

    Especially this line – describing the academic view of people who actually do things – resonates with respect to the Gulf situation:

    Fright surrounded things like flipping back the circuit breaker or unplugging the sewer line under the house; more mysterious were the grubby folk who didn’t eat arugula and were called in to conjure up a fix to these bothersome distractions.

    Comment by Vermont Neighbor — 6/13/2010 @ 2:44 pm

    I agree. I thought any one of those 3 reasons were enough to keep him away from the nomination; not to mention the combination, nor the fact that he had no executive experience (except the Annenberg Challenge, which he neglected to mention), nor that he had stood for virtually nothing as a state senator except a radical pro-abortion bill that essentially approved infanticide under certain situations.

    I think we need to turn to experts in mass delusion to understand how this guy was elected. Did Soros put something in the water???

  64. He was less like Bush than McCain. Also, McCain was deadwood and everybody knew it. He would have lost by a margin of as much as 20% if not for Sarah Palin. She was the real GOP presidential campaign and that’s the reason the left went after her tooth and claw.

  65. I concur wholeheartedly, nk, which is why “the narrative” tried to present Palin as a factor that pulled McCain down; the powers that be would like common-sense, no-nonsense candidates be locked out of the process.

  66. MD, it was that combo of things that gave Obama the win, actually a fairly thin margin considering all the things in Obama’s favor: the antiBush vote, the Acorn fraud votes, massive campaign donations from one-world and Arab states… not to mention fake supporters like doodad pro, mickey mouse and ‘tony rezko’. 2008 should’ve been a landslide year.
