Change: The First Three Weeks (It's worse than you thought alert)
American Thinker ^ | February 10, 2009 | Randall Hoven

Posted on 02/10/2009 12:19:15 AM PST by Zakeet

Far be it from me to criticize Barack Obama before he's even had a chance to rule. Well, he's had almost three weeks in office as I write, and some patterns are beginning to emerge. Here is a list of accomplishments 20 days into President Obama's first term.

Prior to taking office.

January 21. Day One in office, or "Clean Government Day."

January 22, "Be Nice To Terrorists Day."

January 23, "Be Nice To Abortionists Day."

January 26, "Help the US Automobile Industry Go Broke Quicker Day."

January 27, "Be Nice to Terrorist Lovers and Tax Cheats Day."

January 28, "Bipartisan Schmipartisan Day."

January 29, "No Statute of Limitations on Anything Day."

January 30, "Payback the Unions and Keep Joe Busy Day."

February 3, "Being President is Hard Day."

February 4, "More Socialized Medicine Day."

February 5, "Community Organizing, Low-Flow Coffee-Makers and Trade-War Day."

February 6. "Be Even Nicer to Unions and Terrorists Day."

February 8. "Republican Moderates to the Rescue of the Rescue Day."

I should also report on the progress of the Democratic Congress. Here is what the House did already in 2009:

President Obama also said many words in these first 20 days: press conferences, speeches and op-ed pieces, but I left these out of the above list in order to concentrate on actions rather than words. (To my knowledge, Obama did not complete another autobiography in the last three weeks.)

I probably missed a few things, but I think you get the drift. Undo whatever Bush did. Expect appointees to obey the law, with a mulligan given for first-time offenses less than $128,000. Pay back Democratic special interests like unions, trial lawyers and Planned Parenthood. Define "bipartisanship" as inviting Republicans to lunch and telling them, "I won." Spend really, really huge amounts of other people's money. Make terrorism a law enforcement issue instead of a national defense issue. And watch terrorists and nuclear proliferators be released, from Pakistan to Yemen to Gitmo.

President Obama has lived up to my expectations.

I believe these first 21 days could best be summarized in the immortal words of Mark Steyn, who said, "We have nothing to hope for but hope itself."

He is a citizen of Qatar, but was arrested in Peoria, Illinois, because, according to the New York Times , "government officials contended that he was an al-Qaeda sleeper agent, sent to the US to commit mass murder and disrupt the banking system."

Barney Frank is an al-Qaeda agent?

Excellent, highly-detailed summary.

I have been saying for months now that Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than Idi Amin Version 2.0.

And our Nation is nothing more than a larger version of Jonestown ripe for mind control.

The Obamatrons are all fools.

Very nice listing. If Obama were getting the scrutiny George Bush did, there would be calls for his impeachment by now.

Even something as simple as a press conference, can’t be handled without trickery.

Today’s press conference was a tightly controlled affair with only approved reporters getting selected to ask questions. Obama read from a list, who was to be called on next. He didn’t call one person that wasn’t on the list.

I have not seen one press conference like this in the 39 years since I registered to vote. Presidents generally provide a short statement, then accept questions. When they accept questions, they look for a reporter with his/her hand raised, and they call on them.

This didn’t take place today. Obama read names, then asked where the reporter was. Then he would ramble on for up to fifteen minutes with an answer that sounded more like a ten year old’s description of why he didn’t do his homework.

He hemmed and hawed, rambled, lectured, switched focus every 20 to 60 seconds, and offered up half truths and outright lies. He monopolized the time such that only three questions were asked in the first half hour of the dog n pony show.

BO still provides no more intellect during his public statements than a ten year old child. He can’t focus. He can’t tell the truth, or simply hasn’t the tools to remember what the facts are.

This guy is completely out of his depth, and the media that covers for him is beginning to look positively pathetic on top of being lap dogs.

If Reagan had refused to respond to raised hands, if Bush had used the sorry ass tactics that Obama did today, the press would have ripped them to shreds. Instead they’ll wax on about how brilliant Obama is. Well, it does take some ability to be able to completely snow the deaf, blind, and dumb MSM players in attendance today. There’s Obama’s way to do this, and then there’s Ronald Reagan’s way, actually respond to frank questions with gifted responses.

Obama is a sad pathetic shadow of a leader. No amount of propaganda is going to be able to support this man, hiding how inadequate he is.

Short of putting goose stepping troops on the streets to ensure control, Obama and the nation’s media are heading into very dark territory. Everyone expects politics. Nobody expects the level of subterfuge that is taking place with regard to this administration, and their mismanagement of the nation.

There are some obvious questions that need to be asked after today’s pathetic excuse for a press conference.

Were only certain ‘friendly’ reporters called on?
Is Obama afraid to take spontaneous questions from a variety of reporters?
Were questions submitted in advance? I ask this, because several of those questions sounded like they were teed up for Mr. Pipsqueak himself, “Number 18 and the Pride of the Marxist Media, it’s Barack Obamaaaaaa!”

I don’t know what today’s performance was, but it wasn’t the run of the mill press conference.

I have to disagree. The lack of focus is intentional, as is the refusal to talk about details. He may not be up to speed on process (he'll leave the humdrum details to his underlings), but he is total agreement with the goals (about which he can't be honest), and he intends to exert an ever-increasing executive control over all. He has utter contempt for the intelligence of the public and the media, and relies on aura of cocky authoritarianism and sophistry to lull the masses.

To say he's out of his depth is to give him an excuse for the assault on freedom that he's directing.

I am not sure that he himself is directing it. I think he is a tool; a puppet. But he is complicit.

I appreciate the difference of opinion, but let's be frank here. Obama is the consummate void. He comes out and advances these programs, but these programs were dictated to him. Sure he may agree, but he isn't up to speed enough, and doesn't have the adult stature that is require to pull this off.

He never had that ability. He's the equivalent of a news reader. He reads his teleprompter just fine. Take it away and this guy is a simpleton. I talk of him as if he were a child, because in reality, he is. He is the equivalent of a ten year old boy acting out in his parents drawing room, while his parents do nothing and query guests if he isn't the cutest thing they've ever seen. Well, no he isn't. He's a impudent bore. The media that plays the role of parent here, is a misguided, propagandist entity, being hoodwinked by people that would knife them in the back for a pack of cigarettes.

To say he's out of his depth is to give him an excuse for the assault on freedom that he's directing.

He is complicit. He is not in control. He even has to ask what the bills he is signing actually do. I don't give him cover here. He damns himself in ways that I couldn't cover for. I am simply heralding what is taking place here as I see it.

I would add that the economic collapse is entirely due to pre-election democrat social policies plus democrat banking/mortgage policies, combined with a democrat no-drill-all_Mideast crisis no-oil-all-speculation propaganda campaign that crushed Bush's economic gains since 2001.

Plus a 6000 point drop in the DOW after November 4.

Ronald Reagan’s way, actually respond to frank questions with gifted responses.

My all time favorite Reagan quote, and one of my all time favorite political quotes (in response to a reporter's question, as you say above):

"Why did you fire the air traffic controllers?"

"It's against the law to strike, and they struck. Looks like they quit to me."

LOL!!!

Obama is the consummate void. He comes out and advances these programs, but these programs were dictated to him. Sure he may agree, but he isn't up to speed enough, and doesn't have the adult stature that is require to pull this off.

Time will tell whether he can "pull it off" or not. My concern is these "empty suit" arguments work to his advantage, in that they'll allow him, with the media's assistance, to disassociate himself from whatever disastrous results accumulate from his policies,  by blaming various expendable appointees for failures and/or mistakes.

Didn't we see this process in the case of Jeremiah Wright, when his 20-year association with a toxic racist was sloughed off with the excuse that he himself hasn't verbalized these sentiments, and that he really wasn't attending the church because he agreed with those statements, but for other more innocuous reasons? Net damage to Obama: Zero. Ditto Rezko, Ayers, etc.

Haven't we also seen the affect in the musings of supposedly "right-wing" pundits who've insisted on prefacing criticism of policy with, "I'm sure Obama is a nice man...but.." or some such nonsense? Or in the admonitions to "give him a chance" in the early days after the election?

I see the same attitude now even in his supporters who are having second thoughts about the stimulus bill. But, rather than blaming their cult hero, they blame Congress, ignoring the fact that it's Obama who's using the bully pulpit to ram it through.

Obama issued an Executive Order on "Economy in Government Contracting", which says government contractors will no longer be reimbursed for "any activities undertaken to persuade employees to exercise or not to exercise" the right to organize and bargain collectively.

I believe that saying about a stopped clock applies here.

That particular executive order actually sounds like a good thing to me.

Here’s a curious question: In the month or two leading up to the inauguration, we saw a whole bunch of Predator drone strikes in Pakistan, doing some serious damage to AQ leadership and training. How many attacks have we made there since the inauguration? And what has the effect of this policy been on AQ? To weaken its ability to harm us, or to strengthen it?

I’m just asking.

After all, the highest form of patriotism is dissent.

Neighborhood partnerships" have equal footing with faith-based ones. The local Planned Parenthood or ACORN center will be treated like a house of God, in the eyes of the federal government.

Obama has one goal with this bill. It’s a complete takeover of the United States for the Socialist/Marxist Democrat party. This bill will not restore jobs, fix the economy, or anything other than to bury this nation in so many additional gifts to the public, that the U.S. will be unable to pay for it, and a large segment of the public will be unable to vote for anyone but the Democrats who bear presents at every turn.

If Obama were an adult, he might be slick enough to pull this off without much downside. IMO, he isn’t going to be able to fool the adults in the room for long.

Look at the stock market today. Obama’s press conference yesterday was a complete disaster. The media may try to tell us what it wants us to think, but the underlying support for these policies will vaporize.

The majority of citizens can only be so dumb. IMO, they can’t be dumb enough to miss Obama’s vacuous intellect, and the disaster his policies will bring upon this nation.

Look at the phone calls to the U.S. Capital. They are hundreds to one against Obama’s policy.

He’s not selling this to anyone except three dumb ass RINOs in Washington, D.C.

I never hear BO talk where he doesn't have a little whiny comment about how it's not his fault, he inherited the problems. I'm so sick of it. It's his stupid dimwitocrat buddies and their socialist agenda that got us into this mess.

Exactly. The problems he whines about inheriting were largely put in place by that incompetent branch of government called "Congress."

If Obama were an adult, he might be slick enough to pull this off without much downside. IMO, he isn’t going to be able to fool the adults in the room for long.

I hope you're right, but I'm not quite that optimistic. There are, unfortunately, far too many voters who also don't think like adults, and a media that is only too happy to accommodate their ignorance.

Bottom line, IMO? Much more pain to come.
