The Deconstructed Presidency has been. Deal with it.
Kenny Bunk ^ | 12/03/2012 | Kenny Bunk

Posted on 12/03/2012 1:40:55 PM PST by Kenny Bunk

The key to understanding Barack Hussein Obama is that he does nothing.

This proposition is at the heart of a grave misapprehension of this Presidency. An American might be forgiven for feeling that a contribution to the common good is based on performance; productivity, some meaningful place in a functioning enterprise that fulfills one and contributes to the furtherance of some cause, or to one’s family and thus to God. What we cannot be forgiven for is continually attempting to apply this now remarkable cultural artifact; this mindset, to this Presidency.

For example, the airwaves resonate as the right-wing talkers decry Obama policies. They ought to wise up. By now the yakkers ought to have realized that there are no policies. There is nothing. That, as hard as it may be to grasp, is by design.

Pundits tirelessly discuss one event after another as it relates to Obama. ”He did this. He did that.” He does nothing. Neither does it take long. His “working” hours are far shorter than even those notorious shirkers Clinton and JFK. (Clinton especially understood the concept of nothingness.) Presidents used to, sometimes vaguely to be sure,campaign on proposed policy,perhaps trying to give voters some idea of their ability to perform; to work toward achieving the result of those policies by personal accomplishment.

Please, all those in opposition to Obama, forget about that. Those days are gone.

Nothing is the key.
Barack Hussein Obama holds an office, but the office certainly doesn’t hold him, or hold him accountable. Consider recent history.
For some 18 months, Obama’s irregular attendance days in Washington were invariably spent in his “den.” It is a room in the White House equipped with multiple big-screen TV’s always tuned to various ESPN broadcasts, and also used to replay recorded commentary by loyal media outlets. The President was not alone in this “Den.” On most days, he was accompanied in his trivial pursuits by a live-in friend and constant companion, Mr. Reggie Love. Intrusions from the outside world were and still are reported by Valerie Jarrett, orchestrating, evaluating, and above all filtering stimuli from sources like David Axelrod, Cabinet members, or “Czars.” There is no question of performance. The machine doesn’t need it. Set on “spin,” all it need do is react or not react to events in a way that enhances a projected image.

(This pattern of course continues, although there has been a personnel change at the White House in that Mr. Reggie Love was whisked out of town very early in the campaign,as sordid details from his former life were simultaneously suppressed by a most cooperative media. It would be surprising if even 2% of those who voted for Obama had even heard of “Reggie Love.”)

In this completely deconstructed Presidency,Barack Hussein Obama does nothing for the very good reason that whether anyone on this planet does anything or not, events will occur. In Obama-world, events occur, too. But do those who practice the “Nothing” approach, the nature of the events matters not a whit.

For Team Obama, it is what happens after the event
before which Obama did nothing.
That concept goes a long way toward explaining the success of this presidency in maintaining and increasing its power. For example, as he watched events in Benghazi unfold on live television, by a careful calculus of design, he did precisely nothing.

The President and his team know that after any event has occurred, any event can be managed in such a way that the President gets: (a) credit for handling it properly; (b) is credited with a successful outcome no matter what happened; (c) because what happened has absolutely nothing to do with it. It even does not matter whether the events are “positive,” or “negative.” If the event is “negative,” in some way, a s was for example, “Benghazi,” blame may be directed away from the President, and others will be seen to own the “problem.” Repeat: “The President gets: (a) credit for handling it properly; (b) is credited with a successful outcome no matter what happened; (c) because what happened or didn’t happen has absolutely nothing to do with it. The President has done nothing.

Nothing being there, the issue is over.

If the situation is serious enough, or if it looks as if there might even be some slight negative consequence to the President, we have seen the deft maneuvers by the Team to: (1) easily cast any “blame” elsewhere; and (2) set up a diversion to accomplish that. “Sandy,” wiped out the littoral of 3 states. FEMA has failed miserably in this disaster that dwarfs New Orleans. Obama do something? Why bother. He has done nothing but has reaped the credit for “addressing the problem.” Many thousands are still power-less. Thousands of families are without shelter. Looting was widespread. So what?

Move on toward the “Fiscal Cliff.” By calculated design, the President has done nothing. There never was a “Budget.” There is no “Administration Plan.” There being nothing, the opposition party is forced to do something, even as they are ridiculed as “obstructionist friends of the wealthy.” “We are not!” They stupidly posture and struggle, as if there were some rational way to counter that claim. The President needs to do nothing. Repeat: He will get: (a) credit for handling it properly; (b) is to be credited with a successful outcome no matter what happens; (c) because what happened has absolutely nothing to do with it. It does not matter whether the events are “positive,” or “negative; blame may be directed away from the President, and others (The Republicans in the Congress) own the “problem.” It is impossible to ”win,” against this disarmingly simple philosophy.

Since any outcome will have many unpleasant effects, the team that does “nothing,” takes the advantage.

Please note that I do not mean to discount the absolute power the Left has in the media. More important, one must never forget the obvious socialist ideology that makes up the greater part of Obama’s scant intellectual baggage. But it is “Deconstruction” that is at the very core of the means chosen by, or more likely for him and has a very specific socialist revolutionary goal. While the means chosen are classically deconstructionist, the day-to-day tactics used to cover the President’s “nothingness” are the battle-proven tactics of the Communist Party as codified in Alinsky’s manuals. Since these are tactics are alien to most of the ordinary “American Experience,” they are devastatingly effective and apparently are never to be understood, appreciated, or much less effectively countered, by what passes for the opposition.

This is also not to say that the do-nothing Obama Administration cannot see events taking shape, either internationally or domestically. However, they very carefully choose to, or make it known that they intend to, do nothing about these events. In that way, they may take immediate advantage of whatever occurs, whether to take credit, cast blame, or ignore entirely. A fine case in point: “The Arab Spring.” The administration takes credit for “democratic reforms.” The crucifixion of Christians or the rape and murder of Americans, including an ambassador are the problems of others. Explanation if required: this administration had nothing to do with them, because obviously they are the result of misguided policies carried out by former administrations.

Of course this, leaves us who may disagree with the goals of the Obama Administration with the problem of effectively countering it. Perhaps the answer lies in applied psychology. Counseling a patient faced in daily life by passive aggression with malignant intent, some therapists might suggest withdrawal. In the context of the “Fiscal Cliff” situation, that might mean adopting a hands-off approach.

Since the consequences of the Republicans “doing nothing” in the House cannot possibly be worse for the country than the consequences of supporting a President who does nothing, but will seek to blame them for anything and everything, perhaps the Republicans should now take a leaf from his book and do precisely the same thing about the “Fiscal Cliff.” Nothing. Leave the man to face the consequences of doing nothing all by himself.


TOPICS: Government; History; Politics
KEYWORDS: nothing; obama; reaction; strategy
The President has chosen the ground for his battle to socialize the United States very carefully. By doing nothing, he has maneuvered the Republicans into a corner from which they must come out to attack him.

In bull-fighting they called this Matar Recibiendo i.e., lead the bull to impale himself on the staionary matador's sword. Cassius Clay called it "Rope-a-Dope."

Are the Republicans smart enough not to play? It doesn't look good.

I certainly am willing to give him full credit for it, even though I am unable to understand a word.

They tell me it is because I am not supposed to understand it, but those who will vote for him will. It reminds me of SEO, Search engine Optimization. Key words trigger the desired response in believers. The fact that the words when connected don't mean anything doesn't mean anything. The effect works.

Obama was reassured by his master SS Soros that his failed first term guaranteed his reelection in that the Cloward/Piven aspect of his economic incompetence and a half century of Leftist dumb down and entitled mentality indoctrination in academia and the MSN made, as in the Leftist gangbanger crotch grabbing culture, bad “good” achieved what a half century of Soviet Union influence and espionage could not do—socialize America.

It’s not about what he says, it’s about how he says it.
Great delivery. He could read the phone book and convince half the voters to elect him.
That and a team skilled at identifying which half he needs to say it to, precinct by voter precinct.

Very astute, as usual, darlin’. A figment of someone’s imagination acting as a figurehead. Who’d a thunk it?
He doesn’t even speak his own words lest he slip and tell on hisself...which he does when he’s feeling really cool, and then his handlers have to smack him silly so he’ll settle down for a few days.
It’s extremely unfortunate that this empty man was chosen as a representative of the finest black America has to offer because he isn’t and he doesn’t.
Allen West will rise again.

It seems I do remember the Clinton years as “years of spin”. Every day, either they, or Carville, or some other Clinton representative sashayed out after they’d evidently discussed the subject of “Let’s see; how can we spin this today?” - It was scandal after scandal, suicide or murder after suicide or murder, with either Bill or Hillary involved in one disgraceful scandal after another endlessly. Of course, they blamed it all on the VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY; even Monica Lewinsky was part of that VRWC until - oopsy! - the BLUE DRESS with Clinton’s DNA on it.
The Senate should have backed the House on it and REMOVED his bohunkus from being a “respected” elder statesman; just as the Dhimmicrats did not have one speck of mercy on Richard Nixon when they had a morsel on him.

Doing nothing is a revolutionary battle tactic?

On a man-to-man level, Clinton has about 5 times the smarts as the present recumbent, who is as Mesta Machine says, "a figment of someone else's imagination."

However, whoever handles Team Obama has a much greater coaching challenge in that Barry needs much more intensive back-up, which is why he isn't allowed out alone . They also, IMHO, have done a better job on the sex thing. Everyone knows about Monica Lewinsky, but whom have you run into who has even heard of Reggie Love?

Absolutely. We live in one in which Obama just won a second term as a reward for doing a really bad job in his first term.

Obama absolutely plans to do nothing about "Fiscal Cliff." He is simply going to let Boehner and the boys propose a plan or two, ansd then reject them as "favoring the rich." Of course, the country will suffer, and of course it will be the Republicans' Fault. Team Obama is thinking ahead to a class warfare 2014 Midterm to regain Congress.

A NYSlimes article, posted here on FR, went out of it’s way to mention that Soros was blown off by Jarrett.

I used to wonder if the wizard was some group or council of New Left people, or if was mini-me himself.

That article is so magically out of place it might was well be about unicorns prancing on the East Lawn. The fawning media that covers everything up for the White House is suddenly dishing out red meat to the vast right wing conspiracy ? Yah, right.

Every road sign on the planet is pointing towards Obozo being a placeholder puppet for Soros, with Jarrett being his handler.

He does nothing because he's the DC equivalent of having Sgt. Schulz in charge of the camp. Deputy Enos in charge of Hazzard. Barney in charge of Mayberry.

Jarrett: Barry, just don't touch nuthin. Don't do nothin. Don't say nothin.
Obama: Yeh, right.
Jarrett: Barry - just look at me
Obama: yeh
Jarrett: just look at me if you're not sure. He was very clear on that, you have to be very careful. You have to memorize your out phrases. Even with me there you're going to have a tremendous amount of responsibility.
Obama: Right, voters.
Jarrett: No Barry the boss, he's investing millions in you, this is big time serious.
Obama: Right.

Okay, I see your point now. But such complicated dialectical strategies don't usually work in real life. The chance that the target audience will simply write the strategist off as a failure and take the opposite course of action is too great. So the idea that the Soviet Union was only pretending to collapse to draw out the West for a new offensive didn't pan out: the collapse was too real. Also, I don't see Obama or his team having anything like the discipline or patience to follow a long-term strategy that the old Communists had.

The other problem is that nobody wants to be that guy whose failure paves the way for later success -- especially if the success isn't sure to come. Politician's egos are too strong to want to play the fall guy. They don't want to sacrifice whatever chance they have at fame and power and reputation to be somebody else's Herbert Hoover or Jimmy Carter (or I guess we have to add George W. Bush now). If Obama is that twisted and that clever, he's not going to want to be somebody else's second banana. He may just be really incompetent, not some evil genius pretending to be incompetent so that someone else could take the credit.

I am gonna say this for about the millionth time. soros does NOT guide obama. clinton does and has since little o gave his “I Am the Dream” speech at the J effing K convention. THAT is when bill picked him and THAT is where and when the deal was made. And THAT is why mccain stepped back.
There is a very long and interesting story here starting with the financial meltdown, but I am tired of repeating myself since no one will connect the dots.
Why do you think it is ALWAYS bill clinton who rescues little o? ALWAYS.
Between clinton and bush, everything was in place for the whole financial meltdown, and every single appointee obama has ‘chosen’ is, and has been, a clintonista all the way to hacks like van jones and sotomeyer.
soros invests money in everything left, but clinton is the brains behind little o. Everything o has done was what clinton tried to do but couldn’t because he had to go through the Republicans first. Gingrich kicked his a$$.
Gays serving openly in the military. hillary’s health care.
The repossession of many of the homes bought through fannie and freddie because of laws clinton put in place. The green energy scams. The hatred of Israel and especially Netanyahu who he tried to literally destroy. arafat was the most frequent visitor at the clinton whitehouse.
Anyone who thinks emanuel or greg craig were working for obama needs medication.
It just goes on and on and on.
ALL OF IT.

By doing nothing, he has maneuvered the Republicans into a corner from which they must come out to attack him.

It has nothing whatever to do with what he does or does not do. With media communications as balkanized as they are, enough people will know nothing about any particular situation that the the consequences are immaterial. The MSM controls the bulk of public conversation, even here.

clinton does and has since little o gave his “I Am the Dream” speech at the J effing K convention. THAT is when bill picked him and THAT is where and when the deal was made.

The keynote speaker at a Presidential convention is already selected as a future Presidential Candiate by the powers of a party, that's why they are given the keynote speech opportunity.

The agendas of modern Presidents, do not come from themselves but from elites that are not elected.

For example, one I recently looked at: US policy on global AIDS funding, which is really part of population control. Population control was being pushed at the United Nations by powerful interests in the 1970's when Clinton was still trying to make a name for himself. President Clinton signed an order in 1996 to address the issue. It was not Clinton's idea, it was the idea of his "experts".

Just before he left office in January of 2000, an unclassified NIE was delivered to Clinton that made global AIDS a national security threat; this became the basis for the George W. Bush administration to use the Republican Congress to open the floodgates for foreign aid spending on the program. Again, it was not Bush's idea.

A Council or Foreign Relations Fellow wrote a 368-page book for Obama outlining what his agenda should be; of course, the same agenda we've seen for the last 20 years continues.

From administration to administration, the people with the real power "guide" Presidents as to what they "should do".

From the local, State to Federal level, politicians are just the folks that pass legislation, "getting things done" for the people that back them.

With Obama, he's unique in history in that Valerie Jarrett typically goes with him and his wife on vacation, frequently goes back to the East Wing with Obama at night after work, she has her own SS detail, she controls virtually everything in the White House, and Obama's Chiefs of Staff were second to her in access to him. There is no way that either of the Clintons is closer to the big Zero than Valerie, who seems to have always been his primary handler from the time they met. The fact that her handling of him is so exaggerated makes the idea of her being purely an advisor almost nonsensical.

IMHO.

There is SO much more to this. It would literally take volumes to get to all of it now. But dinna forget where hillary came from and why bill married her. It was a political marriage from the gitgo. This was the fusion of the bubba mafia and the Chicago machine. Carter mentored bill until the Mariel boatlift. After that it was ghwb, (who involved clinton in the Mena cocaine smuggling.)

Like I said, this goes back a long way and you keep believing that it’s the cfr or the whatever. But the jarrett connection is the clinton connection and was long before obama...as was tony rezko. clinton RULED the welfare reform group that finally emerged as acorn. It’s headquarters was in Arkansas. He sent the first contingent to open a branch in Chicago and the rest is history. jarrett is rich because of clinton.
It’s a long game. The pieces are all there and they all fit.

LOL. Perhaps I ain't the guy to explain Deconstructionism. Try Camille Paglia.

In a way though, I think with this guy as the front man, with a completely controlled media, and with Valerie Jarrett, the Clintons, and George Soros as the ideological brains (and they are "brains"), this philosophical approach has a fighting chance of taking over. Hell, it already has to a very large extent!

I don't see Obama or his team having anything like the discipline or patience to follow a long-term strategy that the old Communists had.

The East German Communists, among whom Obama has very strong ties, including his half-sister and Raila Odinga, not to mention Clintons (especially Bill), Soros, and Jarrett, always held that the reason Communism wasn't more successful was that those untermenschen russki schiesskopfs were screwing it up. So, IMNSVHO, There's a good chance they are in this for the long haul.

He may just be really incompetent

The Point: Spectacularly ignorant but presentable, he is perfect out front and just the right guy to do nothing. Of course, as any PR guy can tell you, sometimes the dummies get to believing their own publicity!

Pearl, I rushed to post "Deconstructionist" when the thought hit me. Should have waited until tomorrow!

Senator Barasso added really important corroboration and some much needed straightening out. Viz
It really looks like the Mombasa Marxist MF Team has completely trashed the Establishment Republicans, who were stupid enough to come out with their own laughable, unsound "Plan."

Now, Team Obama can continue with their original plan of leading us over the "Fiscal Cliff" and placing the blame for the sure-to-be-trashed economy squarely on the Republican doorstep. The GOP RINO Brigade is playing checkers and losing at chess. This is about sweeping the midterms back into the Democrat fold and completing the socialist revolution. Team Obama will do nothing. The MSM Campaign and Script:
"Can't, you know. We tried to help you, but those damned friends of the rich, those Republicans, screwed it up and are making you suffer."

And suffer we will.

You heard it here first.

Hannity's Brain is nothing more than a life-support system for Hannity's Hair.

At least I haven't heard of him hosting that despicable Dick Morris lately.

Thanks Kenny Bunk.
The key to understanding Barack Hussein Obama is that he does nothing... the airwaves resonate as the right-wing talkers decry Obama policies. They ought to wise up. By now the yakkers ought to have realized that there are no policies. There is nothing. That, as hard as it may be to grasp, is by design... His "working" hours are far shorter than even those notorious shirkers Clinton and JFK.
He does not do nothing -- he merely has hardworking lackeys who are of like mind and carry out his illegal and unconstitutional agenda. I'm just glad he's been our President since 2009, because McCain and Romney would be worse. /s
