Obama: My biggest failure is not giving enough speeches ... or playing enough golf.
The Virginian ^ | 7/13/2012 | Moneyrunner

To paraphrase him just a bit, Barack Obama explains to Charlie Rose that his policies are great, just great. He just hasn’t told the American people enough stories about how great he and his policies are. And the people, those hapless boobs, can’t figure it out for themselves.

Now he’s going out into flyover country where the bitter clingers live to tell them how great he is. How his policies are going to make everything that’s wrong with America right. The planet is healing, the seas are receding and the economy is just fine. All we need now is a good bedtime story told by Barack Obama and we will all be able to sleep soundly.

Jim Treacher asks why the media lets him get away with that.

I realize it’s only Charlie Rose, but this is just another example of the journalistic negligence of the last half-decade. With the exception of Bret Baier and the occasional local guy from St. Louis or wherever, Obama’s interviewers never call him on this stuff. He babbles the same stale crap over and over, and it’s obviously not true, and they just… let him.

Maybe they think they’ve helping him. Maybe they’re scared of being called racists. Maybe they’re just too stupid to know any better.

I realize none of these things are mutually exclusive.

Charlie Rose and Brokaw after the election start to question one another about "who is this guy?". They only praised him for two years and ignored and lambasted any one who asked the same question.

Exactly how such a dangerous man ever got to become POTUS is beyond me. America was asleep, Liberty’s sentries were dozing while on duty, and in sneaks The Great Pretender, with his Trojan Horse chock-full of nasty surprises...

...and all of the checks-and-balances, all of the Due Processes, all of the Constitutional protections that were developed over 200+ years of hard work were all for naught.

America was never defeated by armed might, and could never be. But rather by stealth, hubris and complacency.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Indeed. God Bless America — particularly now, when it matters the most.

ROSE: I don’t know what Barack Obama’s worldview is.

BROKAW: No, I don’t, either.

ROSE: I don’t know how he really sees where China is.

BROKAW: We don’t know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.

ROSE: I don’t really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

BROKAW: Yeah, it’s an interesting question.

ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches.

BROKAW: Two of them! I don’t know what books he’s read.

ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?

BROKAW: There’s a lot about him we don’t know.

America was asleep

GOPe was asleep picking an idiot....of course they repeated the same thing this year. Every year that a President wins is because the opponent is horrible. That goes for both parties. I mean how dumb were the democrats to put up Gore and Kerry....Well the Republicans picked some doosies too....Dole, McCain, Romney....It is always the case of the least doofus who wins the election.

“Obama: My biggest failure is not giving enough speeches or playing enough golf.” The art of a good speech is: Stand up, Speak up, Shut up, and Sit down. Obozo doesn't know how to sit down, and he damn sure doesn't know how to SHUT UP! Ever. We are ALL tired of seeing him or hearing him! Amen.
