Obama dangerously close to a 'Killer Rabbit' moment
Chicago Tribune ^ | August 19, 2011 | John Kass

Posted on 08/20/2011 5:22:55 AM PDT by Zakeet

Is President Barack Obama on the verge of being attacked by a bunny wabbit?

Absolutely.

All the signs suggest that Obama is in immediate danger of a rabbit attack. It would ruin what's left of his presidency. And it would horrify Democrats by ushering in, say, a President Bachmann.

It might happen while he's on that ridiculous vacation of his. Obama is chilling at some exclusive multimillion-dollar estate on Martha's Vineyard, even as thousands more Americans hit the unemployment lines, and as Republicans like Michele Bachmann make wild-eyed, crazed claims about bringing back $2 per gallon gas.

"I think it's a little too early yet for the president to be attacked by a rabbit," cautioned a veteran Chicago Democrat wise in the ways of Obama. "But it's close. Real close."

Anyone who thinks Obama is safe from a rabbit attack has forgotten what happened to President Jimmy Carter In 1979. Carter was attacked by a swimming rabbit, and the subsequent "Killer Rabbit" stories helped destroy his presidency. It led to the election of Republican Ronald Reagan in a landslide and an unprecedented economic revival.

There are eerie similarities.

There's a pretty good summary of Jimmah's harrowing attack in the original article ... and it does appear likely that the Wee Wee's will faces a similar shark-jumping event sometime in the near future.

Okay...this could be fun. What will Obama's rabbit moment look like?

I think a little girl will try to attack him when he takes her bike by accident. Headline: "Obama fends off attack by 6 year old girl after taking her bike"

I have to say that despite being an egomaniacal fascist, Putin at least puts forward that tough guy routine real well. He, of course, has the Russian media in his pocket, but Obama does as well. So how does he manage not to whitewash something like a killer rabbit incident if the media is complicit?

Also, why is it that the leftists are always these limp-wristed weenies while Conservatives tend to be rough and tumble sort of guys (Reagan rode horses, Bush 41 skydives, GW tends his ranch, etc.) that portray Americans as strong.

What's starting to scare me is that, at some point, Obozo is going to wake up to the reality that people don't like him and his socialist ideas. At that point, he may start using the powers of Executive Order to institute things that couldn't pass Congress. He's already started this by using regulatory agencies to institute laws that impact the economy (e.g., use the EPA since cap-and-trade looks DOA).

When Obama is now compared to James Earl Carter by the mainstream media, it's obvious that even the MSM privately admits it's all over for the President in regards to a second term.

One Rabbit moment, for Obama, was denying the Tea Parties are Terrorist statement by Biden.

He and his Progressives are clueless that it is not a created movement but a spontaneous reaction to the overreach of government. He doesn't understand how many voters are alienated by the non-apology.

Another is denying his responsibility for the Credit Downgrade. He promised if the bill passed there would be no such downgrade.

That's two bugs rabbit moments.

I was actually attacked by a killer squirrel. A snarling angry squirrel. Scared the hell out of me because I thought it had rabies. Luckily I didn’t get bitten but it was close.

I don’t want to completely defend Obama, but is he really as bad as President Carter. Thankfully I was not alive during that era. However, there was gas lines, high interest rates, Iran hostage crisis, high unemployment, among other embarassments. President Obama doesn’t lack deficiencies, but it seems like it was unnecessarily painful to live during the Carter years.

Yes. The press still tends to say that most people don't like his policies, and most people think the country is going in the wrong diection, but ....

"most people still really like the president as a person".

I don't think that true, and I think it will become more apparent before the year is out. To the people, and to him.

It led to the election of Republican Ronald Reagan in a landslide...

There was much more to it than that. Let me count just a few from memory:

Panama Canal give away

Mexican Border redrawn

November 7, 1979, the U.S. Embassy in Iran was seized by Muslim terrorists and our President did nothing in response

Desert One debacle

Interest rates above 15%

Need I go on?

Thats a fair question and I think a good one. I think Obama is worse due to the long term consequences of Obamacare. Maybe you should start a thread with that question?

Check out what he has just done to effectively grant administrative amnesty for illegals through new DHS regulations. He is even offering the possibility of work permits for illegals who will no longer be deported. He couldn't get it through Congress so he uses executive fiat instead.

YES YES YES..

When Carter was thrown out; there was still a country left for Reagan to fix.

Not sure about this time.
For starters; Obama seems intent on taking down the entire world's financial system, not just the US.

I was a teenager during the Carter years, and yes they were unneceessarily painful.

I think Obama is worse. The high unemployment and underemployment is only part of our current problem. The way that Obama has consistently acted against the will and the interests of the people is mind boggling to me. We have not even begun to experience the unintended consequences of the massive 2000+/- page bills that have been rammed through.

That’s what I was thinking. The “killer rabbit” wasn’t the cause of the Reagan Landslide. At the time we just all saw it as proof that even the wildlife was fed up with the peanut farmer.

And he’s openly declared that he won’t enforce laws that he doesn’t agree with (e.g. DOMA).

We’re also only beginning to understand the extent of the administrations involvement in undermining 2nd Ammendment rights with the fast and furious case.

When Jimmy Carter pardoned the Vietnam War draft dodgers and brought them all home in time to vote Democrat in the next election, it showed the country what a sorry excuse for a man we had as a President, and it also showed the country what the Democrat Party is made of.

Exactly...likely with more to follow. While Congress can “undo” Executive Orders, it takes agreement in both Houses and a will to get it done, which is unlikely. Even if they do rescind it, the damage will have already been done. Not good...

We probably can’t even imagine what Obama’s killer rabbit moment will look like, but we can all see the signs pointing to the near approach of that wonderful moment.

It could be him farting loudly during his next takeover of the airwaves...er, TV speech. Or laughing hysterically at a crippled person on the vineyard, being unable to stop...or being caught on camera picking his nose and eating it.

Anything at all.

“Thats a fair question and I think a good one. I think Obama is worse due to the long term consequences of Obamacare. Maybe you should start a thread with that question?”

It is definately a question I wondered for a few months. Carter was arrogant and incompetent. While Obama is arrogant, possibly incompetent, and also seemingly bent on destroying the country. While currently things do not seem as bad as what I have read (not personally experienced) as during the Carter years, it seems most are predicting the long term effects of Obama to be much worse. It is tempting to post a thread about it.

The article is dated Aug 30th, so maybe there's a seasonal factor there. It could be imminent.

But more likely is an attack by a Killer Wookie.

He knows this and has always known it. That's why he campaigned to malevolent socialists, europeans, and lapsed catholics.

That's why he's titillating la Raza with innuendoes. He's making promises to our enemies, because that's his constituency.

He's never given a rip about Americans or what we think of him.

That was a good article, although it kind of fell apart at the end.

The funny thing is, Mark Krikorian at National Review’s Corner blog said this same thing just the other day. He was discussing the possible creation of a “Dept. of Jobs” and said “a killer rabbit lurks just over the horizon”.

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/274679/another-cabinet-department-abolish-mark-krikorian

One thing about this Carter episode, I mean we’ve all had a good laugh at it all these years, and for years to come, I imagine, but still...

Isn’t it really kind of NOT GOOD that a rabbit approached a person that way? They’re rodents, I wonder if it might have been rabid? I know we all like cute bunnies (I LOVE cute bunnies, esp. when they have pancakes on their cute bunny heads), but it seems to me like that would be an actually dangerous situation.

Somehow, I think the demise of the Carter administration and the election of Reagan had more to do with other issues than the rabbit thing.
This columnist wants to make it look like Carter was just a victim of circumstance. Typical liberal - it had nothing to do with his obvious failures.

People have no idea how bad this health care law is because it hasn’t been implemented yet.
It’s about to be though.

His deficiencies are different than Carters - their failures are not identical. They are failures nonetheless.

He is far worse. President Carter might have felt he was leading a declining American, President Obama wants America to decline.

The 70s was bad, really bad, but at least there was activity.

Now everything is moribund.

And I don’t think Carter hated America and Americans, I think Obama really does. Maybe hate is too strong a word, but his disdain is unmistakeable.

Oars or a boat motor. It doesn't paddle well due to it's boxy design. It's flat bottomed, and doesn't ride as well as a 'V' shaped boat, so it's best for shallow water. Used mainly by hunters and fisherman since it's more stable than a 'V' shaped boat.

I’m old enough to compare the two presidents. As inept as Carter was, I never had any doubt that he was firmly committed to interests of the United States. I have grave doubts that Obama shares that commitment.
