Skip to comments.PRUDEN: Tickling with cheap flattery
Posted on 04/07/2009 6:08:50 AM PDT by Scanian
Barack Obama may not be the Big Thinker his fans think he is, but his big-time groveling is impressive. We've never seen a presidential performance quite like his Groveling, Toadying and Apple-Polishing Tour of the Olde Countries. If this is Monday, this must be a mosque.
The president is understandably eager to see whether his honeyed tongue can tease and tickle the Europeans the way it teases the libido and scratches the itch of the hoi polloi at home, but the early returns show that he gave away a lot more than he got in return, which was nothing. The European masses shouted the expected hosannas - this is Easter week, after all - but so far that's all the messiah from the south side of Chicago has to show for his groveling. Michelle showed off her upper arms to louder applause. Michelle hot, Barack merely cool.
He bowed deeply to the Saudi king in London, so deep that he risked banging his head on the floor, a real presidential first. Bowing is a revered custom in parts of the world where tugging at a forelock comes naturally, but someone in the protocol office should have told him that Americans bow only to God. A firm handshake, with both hands if absolutely necessary, is enough. Hugging and kissing is optional, best left to the ladies. John F. Kennedy famously warned Jackie on the eve of their first trip to Britain. No bowing, not even to that nice queen.

Ok. I simply don’t get it. What is so great about Michelle’s arms? Setting aside all personal and political opinions, I still don’t see it. I’ve made a point of searching out pics of her arms, but I don’t get a tingle up my leg at all. Seriously, someone please point out what’s so hot about them.
as a harvard educated constitututional lawyer, she thinks the second amendment gives everyone the right to bare arms
you got a problem with that, fish-eyed fool?
And the eurotrash is laughing behind Obozo’s back.
Making promises they don’t intend to keep.
Commitments made out of thin air.
Before it’s over, hers will be the only arms bared or beared.
“I dont get a tingle up my leg at all.”
You lack the requisite shallow thinking and shallow, celebrity-worshipping emotions necessary to get those tingles from the empty suits and empty celebrities who are annointed as “geniuses” and “fashion icons” by the brain dead lamestream media. Maybe you need to drink more Kool-Aid.
I guess I’m just not one of the hip crowd.
What’s so great—or even average—about anything Michelle has? I haven’t talked to a single man who finds her attractive in the slightest.
A fabulous column. Old Wes really skewers our rat king.
Michelle has already had more stories written about her than Laura Bush did in eight years.
[Michelle has already had more stories written about her than Laura Bush did in eight years. ]
But you have to admit, it is pretty comical watching the media trying to put lipstick on the pig of the meme that Michelle is some fashion icon. A fashion horse, perhaps.
They are leading your attention from that huge ass and those chicken legs.
Rush was talking today about the fact that all the Michelle magazine covers are not moving those rags off the shelf any faster than normal. He made the point that the lamestreams are trying to create another Camelot myth like the first Camelot (which was a myth).
"Barack Obama may not be the Big Thinker his fans think he is, but his big-time groveling is impressive. We've never seen a presidential performance quite like his Groveling, Toadying and Apple-Polishing Tour of the Olde Countries."
It's obvious he shares Michelle's doubts about whether he can be proud of his country. He keeps apologizing for and criticizing the USA.
