Since all I hear when Barry opens his pie hole every day is what Charlie Brown always hears when his teacher lecture (bwababwa... bwaa, baw-baw), I simply switch channels or power down... just what he's done to the country.
While he is hell-bent on driving this economy and the next generation's future into the ground, every day it's just more of the same in different areas of our society.
Obama spends most of his time talking at us, posing like Paris Hilton for photo ops, keeping Bush on political life-support so he can blame his predecessor for everything that now circles the drain due to he complete incompetence.
He makes public our national defense and intelligence gathering secrets, and wants to free IslamoNazi killers so they can return to their IEDs.
His submissive, craven behavior around the world has encouraged our enemies and will ultimately result in the unnecessary loss of American lives... it's called "aiding and abetting..."
Meanwhile, he has ample time to toss the ole pigskin around like a girl.
My reading of last night's "press conference", which more resembled a crowd of interior designers swooning over Barbra Streisand, was the perfect metaphor for 100 days... one hour, 13 questions, and no answers. The only thing missing was his answer of what tree he would like to be... if he were to be a tree (my apologies to Dr. Seuss).
His handling of the
Y2K swine flu has been, with a boost from the completely derailed Joe Biden who existentially advised us to remain inside and not travel anywhere there were people.... masterful to say the least.
Even down here in The Republic of Texas, there has been a wholesale overreaction... with Gov. Perry declaring a "disaster". The threshold for the "disaster" rating is apparently one fatality (a 23-month-old Mexican child), and 16 confirmed cases of the swine flu.
One of Fort Worth's major events... the huge out door "May Fest" has been canceled; entire school districts have been closed down for a week.
The World Health Organization (WHO) dismisses claims that of 150 deaths from swine flu, saying it has officially recorded only seven deaths around the world--all in Mexico--and 79 confirmed cases.
WHO has not recommended against overseas travel, but urged those who felt sick to stay home and others to ensure they kept their hands clean.
"This virus is not airborne, it's caused by droplets ... so it's not a time for worry. It's a time to be prepared," said a WHO spokesman.
My rambling point.... this means nothing; it's just another way to keep the sheeple here and abroad distracted and teetering on the brink of terminal stupidity.
We have become so fat, so soft, so unchallenged... we have the luxury of having to make up calamities to worry about.
I grew up in substandard housing with lead pipes, lead paint, small individual propane heaters... I used to break thermometers, dump out the mercury on my school desk--keeping the slippery pool more or less corralled in the shallow groove usually occupied by the lead pencils that I constantly had in my mouth.
This is like a three-ring circus with the biggest carney of them all in the center ring, telling the crowd that his is the "greatest show on earth"... the Barnum Boys be damned.
Unfortunately he's right.
