Pro-Tip To the Leader of the Free World

Okay, Mr. President, I want to talk to you about this story in the AP. Do I have your attention?  Good.

In that story you have an event at the white house to deal with the issue of bullying.

Now right off, as head of the Federal Government, with Libyans and Saudis being butchered, terrorists trying to get nukes, Obama, you shouldn’t be wasting your time caring about school bullying.  Seriously, let the states deal with it.  If some kid gives another kid an Indian Native American burn, it’s not a Federal issue in the first place.

But okay I get it.  You believe the Federal Government should be involved in almost everything.  Fine.  But for frak’s sake, with all those thugs around the world, don’t tell the entire world that you were bullied as a child.  And however many people around you are sharing about how bullying has effected their lives, don’t chime in with anything like this:

“I have to say, with big ears and the name that I have, I wasn’t immune,” said Obama, who moved around a lot as a boy, being born in Hawaii and growing up there and in Indonesia. “I didn’t emerge unscathed,” he said.

Obama said adults have too often turned a blind eye to the problem by chalking up the harassment to kids being kids. But he said a national attitude adjustment is in order because of the damage that bullying can do.

Look, I am not saying I hold it against you that you were bullied as a kid.  I am just saying that if you were bullied DON’T TELL THE ENTIRE WORLD ABOUT IT. You have an image to maintain.  You have to seem like a tough motherfraker.  And picturing our President getting a swirly as a boy kind of ruins that, okay?

In fact, do us all a favor and lie and claim that you kicked everyone’s butts and took their lunch money, please?  Oy vey.

  4. If nothing else, it does explain why Obama went off on MoDo four years ago when she wrote that column mentioning his wing flaps. If only we can get Khadaffi, Ahmedinejad or Lil’ Kim to star making repeated disparaging ear commits about the president, maybe Obama will finally decide to take back the mantle of leader of the free world that he turned over to Sarkozy (hell, he might even nuke ’em if they manage to hit the right button with one of their comments).

  5. The world looks to the US for leadership and o votes “present.”

  6. If he had edited the story where he learned to fight back and kicked some ass as a result, that would’ve been okay.

  8. Hasn’t everyone been bullied at some point in their life? What is it with certain people that makes them seem to need to believe this is something unique to only them?

  9. Carlitos, Putin is reading this and thinking “I could take that wimp with both hands tied behind my back.”

  10. Which name is he refering to, his real one or the made up one he uses now?

  11. Was his given name Barack Obama or Barry Sotero?

  12. Life is really tough when you are bullied as a Muslim kid and then become pResident of the USA.

    We, the citizens, are the bullied ones.

  13. Oh God…this is so embarrassing. I mean, the president is a cry baby. Sheesh.

    Terrye (ce0d6f)

  14. Obama doesn’t consider himself the Leader of the Free World, neither does anyone in his party. The term itself has gone out of use.

    The only time you ever hear “Leader of the Free World” anymore is when a conservative pundit is highlighting Obama’s sheer incompetence as a leader.

  15. Our President is a (rhymes with wussy)

    BDJ (72b0ed)

  16. but hey – glad we’ve solved all the big problems and can now move on to the small s***

    BDJ (72b0ed)

  17. poor Obama he is very brave to face the memories of his humiliation at the hands of oppressive bullies but he needs to name names so the people what hurt him can be properly shamed in public

    We can’t let them just get away with this my God this is our president people

    what do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!

    happyfeet (ab5779)

  18. or maybe that’s chicken alfredo pizza we want now

    it could be an either/or thing

  19. He was bullied so he turned into a loser doper.

    Children, loser dopers can become president.

    Be a loser doper today!

    daleyrocks (ae76ce)

  20. Just proves what I’ve said all along, he has the intel of a pre-school student.

    Scrapiron (7a38de)

  21. From the latest reports it’s evident he cares nothing about children or bullying. He’s using it as an excuse to monitor the internet and control the peoples ritht to free speach. Just another part of the Marxist/Islamist POS’s plan to destroy the country.

    Scrapiron (7a38de)

  22. But don’t you see? By revealing his history of being bullied (“Barry, Barry, he’s a fairy; might become president, isn’t that scary?”) Teh One is relating to all of the pre-slaughter Libyan rebels! He is feeling their pain.

    In a way, this makes him better than Clinton. That loser always waited until AFTER the damage was done.

    Icy Texan (4e6c9d)

  23. Um. They don’t call it the bully pulpit for nothing. Just sayin’.
