Skip to comments.Two Faces Of Obama
Posted on 10/26/2010 11:44:52 AM PDT by Biggirl
This is from just like out of a DC graphic comic books, btw, one of the bad people from Batman is better known as Two Face(s). Just like that villain, President Barak Obama has been showing his two faces in these remaining seven days before the upcoming major mid-terms elections. The first one, to look like a uniter, in the first part of this video. The second, as a divider, when it comes to advising Latinos on voting this upcoming November 2, 2010, Election Day. As always, President Obama trying to play on the old tired race/ethnic card on speaks on advising with these words punishing your enemies.

Video for those who do not want to go to the blog:
He sounds like a cheer leader at a football game, not the President of the US.
He's still campaigning and more involved with the legislature than the duties of the chief executive, the “Commander in Chief” (Or as he called in in 2008 repeatedly, “Commander of Chiefs”) of our nation. While he's got his own office title down, maybe next he should learn what to call a Marine Corps medic: http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=en&q=obama+corpsman&aq=f&aqi=g1g-s1g3&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&pbx=1&fp=439bdff367038ee9
The Presidency is the highest office and he's there, but the actual duties of that office put him in a strategic thinking role where he should be dealing with: Foreign affairs, intelligence, (federal) law enforcement, emergency management and defense.
Obama is a provincial politician (small thinking) with a law degree. He's no professor, but a lecturer, he's not really an author but “coauthored” his books and he never really traveled outside the US except as a child. A man that lacks executive, foreign affairs, law enforcement, intelligence, defense/military, economic/business and staff experience, he's now the guy running the ATF, DEA, FBI, DoD, NSA, CIA, ICE, TSA, FAA, DOE, Dept of State......etc.
He's a fish out of water not only because of his experience and education (none which really pertain to the role he's in), but also because he's essentially a President that never really wanted to be a President in so far the duties which this position comes with. He wanted to be historic, the number one guy, but the job description this position came with isn't really what he was after. Ask any manager how many people apply for higher paying jobs that they actually have neither interest nor aptitude in and you'd be amazed to find out that many apply. It's common that people get jobs they really have no love nor skill in, but they chase this because of wealth, power, status......... So.... he acts like a legislator, he's campaigning since he was elected giving speeches daily, traveling all over to push for cap and trade, health care, etc etc etc.
Our government is on cruise control. Basically you have senior and mid level executives, the bureaucracy with it's policies and procedures maintaining the ships course while the captain is in the lounge making small talk with the passengers never really giving course inputs for the ship when it comes to intel, law enforcement, defense or foreign affairs. He's the absent President, even though he's in your face every night on TV.
Will someone please list the natural disasters in the past 2 years where he has ever shown up to give comfort and aid to the victims?
Did Rahm Emanuel perhaps get fired for the legendary “Never waste a crisis”???
Re: the BP oil spill, BO’s MO really worked. He did nothing and voila! the most DEVASTATING TOXIC OIL SPILL IN HISTORY has been fully resolved.
p.s. George Bush is still being villified for his lack of empathy for Katrina victims.
How pathetic he is
Saying he wasn't there is factually wrong. He was there, he just didn't make a difference because as with Iran, N. Korea, Venezuela, our Southern boarder...... he's irrelevant. He's the first Non-President to be in office. He went to the shores and he talked about it extensively, which in his mind equates to doing something.
A friend of mine is a mechanic. A very smart guy that never went to college he tries to learn whatever he can. He lives entirely in a tangible physical world where he has to make things happen. Obama lives in an academic world where things are relative, where the products produced, the outcomes are speeches and political maneuvering. He's the antithesis of my friend the mechanic that either finds the physical fault and fixes it, or fails. With no experience in running much nor a staff, making hard decisions, being responsible for much other than oneself, with no experience in the systems and processes of emergency management and how the DoD, FEMA, Coast Guard, EPA, federal law enforcement and others operate, the BP oil spill was sort of a real world learning lab for the young President Obama. What real input could he make other than giving getting tough speeches on how he's going to kick BP in the rear or stuff that damn hole? I wonder, did Obama speed anything up with his get tough speeches? Who ended up plugging that hole BTW?
He's inept. Ego and arrogance alone don't do it. At some point you have to have the ability to run that staff, to make complex decisions, to make hard decisions that will cost peoples lives, you will need to know the systems, basic capabilities, the processes, time spacial relationships to really be effective, none of which he has. He's a leader as much as Gene Simmons is. I like Kiss and I think Gene Simmons is cool, but I wouldn't make him our President.
As with Nagin in NO, when you have incompetent people in key positions, bad things can result, albeit they are really fun to hang out with during Mardi Gras.
I’ve posted similar sentiments. As a ‘computerized’ work-force we are losing touch with the bridge-builders, long distance truck drivers, mechanics, construction workers and all those guys and gals who do the heavy lifting, think creatively and solve problems.
Ideas come from designers - solutions come from the people on the assembly line.
Well said, I agree. The difference between a superior civilization and an inferior one is potable drinking water and proper sanitation. The noblest profession in the world is a plumber. If I had college-age kids I’d tell them major in whatever it is they wish but have a minor in plumbing.
