Criticizing Obama “Offensive” Says Aide
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 26 May 2013 | John Semmens

Posted on 05/26/2013 1:13:19 PM PDT by John Semmens

Daniel Pfeiffer, Senior Advisor to the President for Strategy and Communications, denounced criticism of President Obama in strident terms this past week, calling critics “uppity.”

“Here we have the leader of the free world, a Nobel Prize winner, being accosted by people unfit to lick his boots,” Pfeiffer complained. “How low has our civilization sunk that such effrontery is tolerated?”

Pfeiffer labeled inquiries about Benghazi, the IRS and phone taps of reporters “fishing expeditions. They think they’re going to find some ‘smoking gun’ linking the President to one or more of these incidents in some substantive way. Well, I’m telling you it’s not going to happen. The President has insulated himself from culpability for whatever may occur. There are strict rules about who may tell the President what that ensure he will honestly be able to disavow all knowledge of what is going on.”

“On top of this he has an enormously wide array of options for eliminating disloyal and uncooperative elements both inside and outside his Administration,” Pfeiffer pointed out. “Those chafing over getting hassled by the IRS ought to consider themselves lucky that sterner measures weren’t used against them.”

“It all comes down to whether people are going to show proper respect for the President,” Pfeiffer concluded. “We cannot sit by and allow the office and the great man who occupies it to undergo the type of heedless questioning of its authority that we have seen over the last few weeks. Rest assured that the President will do whatever it takes to assert and wield that authority. The alternative is too scary to contemplate.”

I have to read that satire tag first before I upchuck on my keyboard. It’s the third one I had to replace.

Sounds like reality instead of satire.

I know this is satire, but I have no problem believing Pfeiffer would say something like this.

OMG...even though I SAW who the author was, I still (if even for about five seconds) bit on it.

Thing is...that is exactly how they think. If you could only administer truth serum...if only...

You know I really don’t have that hard of a time believing that he didn’t know anything.

From one source I have heard that he get to ‘work’ each day around 10AM where he sits in his residence watching sports on TV in his gym shorts, while aides usher people in and out of his majesty’s presence.

When he deigns to look away from the V to grace them with some of his precious speech it is just to tell someone else to take care of it, rather than address them directly.

His highness may not know himself who is running things behind the scenes. I seriously think it is possible he is just a figurehead they picked who can read the words on the teleprompter.

Hey John. You overreached in the first graph but only enough for me to catch the satire quickly without having first paid attention to the title and author. Otherwise a satisfactory job!

This guy’s a two-bit liar...I saw him last week on the Sunday talk shows...he wouldn’t say $h*+ if he had a mouthful...a professional liar out to save this corrupt administration...and if he’s successful, he’ll get a great job on K street in DC after all of this is over...and he’ll make millions.

Be aware of what this is really about...power and money.

Directive: August 4 will now be a national holiday. All workers will take a day of rest with full benefits and salaries and double portions of food stamps will be allotted.

Moreover, all citizens will decorate their homes and communities with photos of our glorious leader.

Ceremonial gifts of food and flowers must be set out before prominent images of his imminence, the Great One Barack Husein Obama the First.

Failure to commemorate the Glorious One will result in tax audits and home visits by concerned public servants.

“Here we have the leader of the free world, a Nobel Prize winner, being accosted by people unfit to lick his boots,”

This is Dear Leaders’ world view; populated by underlings and inferiors, “unfit to lick his boots”. Does a tyrant consider anyone his equal?

Edit suggestion here adding the words It's frustrating.

"It's frustrating that here we have the leader of the free world..." being criticized by those that aren't fit to lick his boots.

i liked your reply , was the statements the aide made an attempt to scare people from voicing their opinion? It is a terrible thing our world and our country are facing, but we must stand strong and firm, repel fear, for if we do not it will cower us which is exactly what these upside down to rightness people want.We cannot allow this to happen. The most popular phrase from people’s mouth’s these days is “I know but there is nothing we can do about it”. In my mind that statement is OFFENSIVE ,and if our forefathers who faught and died to make us a free nation would have took that weak ass position, our way of life would have been anything but good. I don’t have the answers , and i think it will get much worse before it get’s better,then so be it, i refuse to break down, or shut up,and i know in my heart of heart’s WE WILL WIN, i am a woman with a heart of a warrior, and a will of iron. I love my country, my planet, and all those out there globally that want to create a better world.
