Obama, a Science Buff, Is Washington's Mr. Spock
AP ^ | 12/01/2009 | Seth Borenstein

Posted on 12/01/2009 4:54:41 AM PST by Marty62

WASHINGTON (AP) -- He shows a fascination with science, an all-too deliberate decision-making demeanor, an adherence to logic and some pretty, ahem, prominent ears.

The AP is at it again. Writing a propaganda piece just before the GW/CC Scam Summit in Corrupthagen.

Now Calypso Louies space ship is a matter of common knowledge in D.C. Guess who is Spock. Yes you got it..Zero. He has already established himself as Bones...the Medical Officer. Scotty?

How frequently is “Mr. Fascinaion with Science’s wife” receiving breast cancer screenings??

Probably more than the rest of the women in this country would be entitled to under his healthcare plan??

Earth to Associated Press, Spock was/is a character played by an actor. He is not what he appears to be. He is not real at all. He is an actor reading other peoples words. And actor who has no thoughts of his own and is doing what he is told by others. He has no real knowledge of his own on any subject. Most subjects he speaks about are fiction and are no of the real world as we know it. IE: IT'S ALL AN ACT!

Hmmm.... At second thought maybe the AP has this right?

The man is an idiot.

What are the fruits of Obama’s “intellect” after 48 years of life?

Name anything.

When you clear away the smoke brown stuff, this is startlingly bold ass kissing material here.

AP hasn't a tinge of dignity left, what with those surgically affixed carpet layer pads on their knees, and the harness that keeps them with their head firmly lodged at Obama's groin.

Too bad the inJustice Department doesn't have an Organized Slime division.

Spock came to quick decisive decisions. Now they are rewriting characters to make Obama fit their mold.

A little insight into Seth.

What is telling is that the AP reporter - Seth - probably has no knowledge of the fictional Spock. In one episode, Spock explains why he says “fascinating” at particular times. It is because he is confronted with an action or occurance that goes against logic and common sense. A bolt out of the blue, so to speak. If the fictional character could come to life, take a look at the United States and the election of Obama, he most definitely say “fascinating.”

No, I don’t think it’s a rewrite.

They actually want folks to think he’s the exact character Nemoy developed over the years.

Who cares if that’s a complete bald faced lie. This is grade A propaganda.

Hitler never had it so good.

If Obama is to be compared with any Star Trek character, it would be Trelane of The Squire of Gothos episode. A child trapped in an adult body, trusted with great power, who fancies himself to be a sophisticated man of the world, but is revealed to be petty and infantile.

The only thing is even half way competent at is talking.
Actually not to accomplished since he has to use a teleprompter and becomes totally confused if it breaks.

This is aimed at the sight and sound audience. The 18 to 25 year olds.
But for that group, you need to know that Spock had sex every 8 (EIGHT) years.

Enough said.

I think their argument that Obama is a science geek is a little weak. He does not display the curiosity or openness to new (technical) ideas that are basic to the personality type.

Oh yeah, and I’m sure Spock Obama is deeply troubled by climategate and is going to get to the bottom of it before committing the US to an idiotic treaty based on fraudulent science.

Or, perhaps, he is kind of like Dr. Richard Daystrom, only he thinks our lives can be run wholly by a wise bureaucracy instead of a wise machine.

0bama has high verbal aptitudes. He is severely lacking in science and scientific style logic. He’s demagoguing AGW and robbery via cap n trade so he is anti-science

Obama is the opposite of a technical and scientific mind. I doubt he has any mechanical inclination or ever took things apart to see how they worked. He looks like a pansy who never got his hands greasy working on an automobile

Thank You. You just confirmed the Propaganda aspect of this piece.

Science buff, eh? I wonder, if we look at his transcripts, did he even take calculus or physics? I’ll bet not.

Perhaps, except:
1. He was only there through elementary school.
2. Didn’t he attend a madrassa (religious school)?

Once more:
They are NOTHING alike.

Spock was intelligent and knew who his father was;

0bama is a marxist idiot and has no clue who his father was.

But they did engorge themselves on the Ships food supply.

Stupid AP. Typical liberals. They're too dumb to realize how dumb they really are.

Oboma says what he thinks people want to hear, and nothing more. If he's talking to the elderly, he offers retirement bliss. If he's talking to children, he offers unlimited government toys. When he's talking to reporters, he offers them big words and long sentences to print, and the idiots fall for it every time.

So far, Oboma hasn't done one thing right. Not one thing. The AP still hasn't figured that out yet. They're still waiting for him to tell them what to write.

“Presidential politics is about storytelling. Presented with a vivid storyline, voters naturally tend to fit every new event or piece of information into a picture that is already neatly framed in their minds.”

So AP is reading others work (Harris) and making up stories to help the ZERO.

He smoked grass to take the edge off, and a little blow when he could afford it. No junk though. That’s the extent of his school activities we are allowed to be aware of.
