Comedy of Errors: Obama declares his first two years "toughest since the Great Depression"
AIPNews.com ^ | Oct. 28, 2010 | Tom Hoefling

Posted on 10/28/2010 5:53:17 AM PDT by EternalVigilance

In his latest bid to make a joke of the Presidency, Barack Obama appeared Wednesday night on Comedy Central's "Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

From the "Upshot" Blog:

"Are you disappointed in how it's gone?" Stewart asked.

Obama replied that the situation is no surprise given the country's high unemployment, underwater mortgages, and an overall poor economy. "Folks are going to be frustrated, and that's going to reflect on the political environment," Obama said. Obama said that in context, he's "feeling great about where the American people are, considering what we've gone through."

"We've gone through the two toughest years since The Great Depression."

So, to translate that out of Obama-speak into normal English: "Folks have lost their jobs, they're losing their homes, and the prospects for anything better are dim. And I feel great about that."

What a guy! And he wonders why he and the crypto-Marxist political party he leads are on the verge of what could be the worst mid-term election losses any party has experienced in more than a hundred years?

Socialism has consequences, as Barack Obama is proving yet again. And it isn't funny.

What do you expect from a part time (affirmative action) student, part time college instructor, part time lawyer, part time state and federal legislator. What did people voting for him expect, that somehow he was going to transform himself into a nose to the grindstone, roll up and the sleeves and govern the people the way that they expect to be governed. A butt kicking of historic proportions is coming next Tuesday - these elitists will only get nastier after the elections.

Yes, and that World War II thingy was a walk in the park compared to the trials that our beloved POTUS and FLOTUS (may peace be upon them) had to endure to find a decent arugula salad on Martha's Vineyard.

I think he does. He is in denial about being in over his head, and as far as he is concerned, it is the responsibility of those he's "hired" to make the right things happen, including making him look good.

He's full of himself.

Of course, if he had any clue about the Great Depression, he’d know that the last two years was nothing like it.

He could at least have familiarized himself with the Waltons, to understand hollywood’s sanitized version of what hard-working americans look like when faced with tough times.

I like to tell liberals — imagine the Waltons show if instead of them working hard to make ends meet, and coming together as a community, the whole show was about the kids sitting around watching TV, the mother whined about not getting enough food stamps, while the father sat around collecting unemployment checks and complaining that his benefits were running out and it was taking too long for the government to give him free health care.

All that Golf, bowing to foreigners, apologizing for stuff we had to do, and vacations must wear a guy out, getting waited on hand and foot in the White House, skipping church almost every Sunday. Whew, Tiring. So hard to keep it up. Lucky for him he has less than 2 years left and we will give him a break by tossing him out of office. Sooner if he gets some more Chicago style politics stuck to him.

"Meanhwile next weekend after the election he is off to India and his staff has booked all 570 rooms at the 5-star Taj Mahal hotel. When the going gets tough, the tough go shoppin"

Actually, it is worse than you think. I wanted to get the correct stat on the trip...

"To ensure fool-proof security, the President’s team has booked the entire the Taj Mahal Hotel, including 570 rooms, all banquets and restaurants. Since his security contingent and staff will comprise a huge number, 125 rooms at Taj President have also been booked, apart from 80 to 90 rooms each in Grand Hyatt and The Oberoi hotels. The NCPA, where the President is expected to meet representatives from the business community, has also been entirely booked. The officer said, “Obama’s contingent is huge. There are two jumbo jets coming along with Air Force One, which will be flanked by security jets. There will be 30 to 40 secret service agents, who will arrive before him. The President’s convoy has 45 cars, including the Lincoln Continental in which the President travels.”

I want to see a roster of the entourage. It is OUR money, we deserve to know who the h*ll is on this trip!

A location that is most fitting. The actual Taj Mahal is a tomb.

Brian Kilmeade on Fox had it nailed this morning.

Just like ANY child from a wildly dysfunctional family raised by strangers sort of ‘on the street’ so to speak, he spends all of his time patting himself on the back and blaming others.

Bastard children learn to do this because they have no parental or family affirmation so they have to do it themselves. However, their self created confidence is frequently fragile. This is why Obama is constantly running away from the White House. I’m guessing out of 19 months in office he has spent only 2 or 3 actually in the WH. And, of course, we have fabulous luxury vacation #25 coming up next month.(so he can run away from the election)

Obama’s term so far has been characterized by vacations, constantly running away, throwing former friends and supporters under the bus, avoiding responsibility for anything, scorched earth politics, and blaming everyone around him for any setback.

“I’m really a great guy! You people just don’t understand how great I am. It is all just a simple misunderstanding.” This is a standard delusional pattern of an abused or neglected child.

But more than anything, just like any abused child, he craves adulation and approval and he just cannot, under any circumstances, keep his freakin’ mouth shut. He just doesn’t know when to SHUT-UP.

I really think he does. I think he's convinced that, given enough time, his policies will bring the economy roaring back.

Someone this delusional is dangerous to have at the helm, especially when the economy is as bad as it is right now. That's why it is SO important to win convincingly November 2nd and put the brakes on his disastrous programs.

I have worked a long time, and worked in many offices with people like Obama. They make the easiest little task seem hard and they drag it out for days, when it could have been completed in hours. They act like they have done something special by doing just some of what is required for the job. And, if things get rough, or there is a problem, they whine and complain that it is too hard, not their responsibility, or want extra appreciation or pay for tackling a problem.

They are always congratulating themselves and bragging that they have done what most of us just considered typical work. They take more time off, and have more excuses for doing so.

But, the main thing is that for some reason these people just have to make a big deal out of whatever they do and actually feel that others should show them appreciation. It is a mentality that is part of their makeup. Instead of being grateful for having a job, they expect the employers to be grateful because they showed up.

With Obama everything is all about him. Is he reallyt being serious? Sadly, I think he may actually believe his own lies.

How about Reagan vcoming in with a double digit inflation rate and high unemployment and interest rates so high no one could purchase a home?

Or, how about George W. Bush inheriting a recession that was never acknowledged by the MSM, and then the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, & our entire airline industry, etc.? If not for GWB, we would have had a recession for about 4 years, but Bush understood that we needed a strong private industry and he made sure he allowed that to happen. The stupid Democrats united with the rest of America for agrand total of about 2 weeks before they began spewing their venom again, claiming Bush stole the election, and “wasn’t it a shame it happened during Bush’s watch instead of Clinton’s?” Clinton could have become such a hero!

Liberals are beneath contempt.

Yeah, quite a contrast to that idiot Bush who used to square his shoulders and hold his head up even when every jackass in the country was certain that he was the worst president in history. I guess W didn’t understand that he was supposed to mope and droop and piss and moan like a wounded Democrat.
