A Presidential Favor
March 11, 2011
I don’t know about you, but there is something about Barack Obama I cannot stand! Let me try to sort out my visceral reaction to this smug, arrogant narcissist. Unlike all of those regular columnists, I don’t have to pretend that I am presenting a dispassionate, academic analysis of the 44th president and first sultan in American history.
Why am I feeling my insides churning about this fake, phony, fraud today? Because I was about to enjoy the limited escapist fare out there in television land when I saw the unwelcome face of Katie Couric announce that the regular programs on CBS would not be seen because the smug one with the large ears and even larger ego wanted to campaign for the 2012 election.
And that is something, unfortunately, he does so well. That is the only thing he does well. He is not truly a leader. He has no scruples; he has no honesty and he certainly has no love for the people he is supposed to lead. There he was lecturing us on what the problem in Japan is. Are you ready for this exclusive scoop? There was an earthquake of horrific proportion, followed by a tsunami of also horrific proportions.
Ordinarily when Obama goes before the camera to make a self-serving announcement, he can’t get away from the microphone and the teleprompter fast enough. But this time, after he had already told us what we already knew, he surprised the reporters and stayed for questions. Boy did he stay! He not only talked about the earthquake and the tsunami, but he talked about Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi and the entire Middle East.
And guess what? He also talked about the need to develop domestic sources of energy. At least I think that is what he said. If that is true, this represents quite a turn around. This is the same man that doesn’t want to use our abundant supply of coal; does not want to drill for any oil in the United States, including Alaska; does not want to drill offshore; does not want to do anything except please the loons from the Sierra Club and all those other so-called environmental sages.
This is a very shrewd man. Did you notice how he has brought back his left-wing supporters? He gets rid of “don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT), and the defense of marriage act (DOMA) — the two causes most dear to the homosexuals’ heart. He keeps in place that loon of loons, Eric Holder, even though Holder has never met an Islamist terrorist he didn’t love.
I don’t even know how I have summoned the energy and whatever talent I am supposed to have to write this. I am totally bereft of any sense of composure. And why? Because after watching his performance and with the knowledge that he now has as chief of staff one of the most clever, cunning political managers in the nation, Bill Daley — he is going to win reelection.
Maybe I shouldn’t be too sad. After all, there are very few sure things in life. And since I would like to wipe out all the losses I have incurred because I am lousy at financial matters, and whenever I bought a stock, it usually went down. Whenever I sold a stock, it usually went up. So, Barack is going to do me a favor, although he doesn’t know it.
That favor is that he will win a second term and since I will bet that he does, then at least I will recoup all my losses. But, you know what? Even though I would become as rich as Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity combined, I would rather Obama lose so that America could win!
