Ben Stein: No There There - Obama's fake accent on a big night.
American Spectator ^ | 2.29.12 | Ben Stein

Posted on 03/02/2012 7:57:04 PM PST by neverdem

Tuesday
It's the night of the big primaries in Michigan and Arizona. The news networks are going nuts over Romney squeaking by in Michigan after he outspent Santorum five to one. I guess I am crazy (I know I am) but it seems to me as if the man who spent 20 cents to every Romney dollar and got within three percentage points of Romney is the star.

However, that's not my point right now. I just finished watching C-SPAN. It was fascinating. A very smart GOP Freshman Senator from Wisconsin was grilling Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. The Senator asked...

--snip--

But his voice! His accent! He has completely reprogrammed his Punahou School, Columbia undergrad, Harvard Law School accent to try to make it sound like what he imagines a workingman's accent is. It borrows a pitifully little amount from Dr. King. There's a touch of storefront preacher. He -- of course -- drops his "g's" at the end of "ing." That's how educated people think working people talk.

But it's more than that. He also has a southern cracker imitation tossed in there to appeal to what he imagines are southern men who work in auto plants -- so he sounds like a strange mixture of Joe Hill, Martin Luther King, Jr., and George Corley Wallace of Alabama. It's a whole new accent never seen on earth before created by this master chameleon to disguise his ultra-privileged background.

It's his mouth that's moving, but it's not Barack Obama that's speaking. It's a robot speaking machine in Mr. Obama's brain. He has set the machine to "please the workingman" accent and also "please the African-Americans" at the same time and the result is that weird, sad King/Wallace voice. It's sad actually. For Mr. Obama, there's no there there.

I'm glad Mr. Stein has the stomach to listen and watch him.

There’s some good craziness goin’ on here!

Like lying that a 1965 event gets you born ... even though you claim 1961 as your birth year.

Doesn’t matter to the throngs of useful idiots listening and clapping to him tell this lie:

Obama also used the word "good" where he should have used "well". (e.g. "...and it sure drives good.")

Sometimes the establishment-types find a nut...

Joseph of Arimathea comes to mind. They got where they got by not rocking the boat too hard, but they sometimes surface when it counts. Krauthammer is one of my favorite “gatekeepers” when it comes to this kind of stuff; Ann Coulter used to be, once upon a time.

They live near the edge of truth and can actually still affect the nearly-blind also near the edge- whereas those folks tune us out completely. Evangelism and conversion is really where it is at, as opposed to preaching to the choir...

The Obamakarmachameleon is weirding alot of former liberals out.

“It’s a robot speaking machine in Mr. Obama’s brain.”

Stein articulated what I’ve been trying to express for a long time.

Me too. He's nothing but an opportunist playing both sides of the street. A Stein quote from the article:

Now, understand, I am a union man -- Screen Actors' Guild, American Federation of TV and Radio Artists, Writers Guild. And I like private sector unions a lot.

In Ebonics, “good” is sufficient; stop applying your Anglo values to The Sultan. After all, he is the champion of education...

I read his diary articles in The American Spectator frequently. In the past year, he has stated in them that the rich should be taxed more. In another one, he denied that he himself is rich. Yet, over the years, he has talked about his condo in the Marina, his home in Malibu, his place in Sandpoint, Idaho.

In a recent diary entry, he gave credit to Keynes, of all people, for saying something to the effect that a certain monetary policy (such as the one Geithner and Bernanke are currently following) would lead to inflation. Even if Keynes did say it, it’s like pulling out some quote from Mein Kampf to criticize nazism. You don’t have to go there, and you don’t have to give credit to the one whose theories are responsible for the destruction of our economy. A misplaced sense of fairness clouds Stein’s thinking. And he has to throw his Hollywood buddies a bone.

Speaking of stomach, it has always turned my stomach listening to his fake accents that change depending on who he thinks he is pitching to. Such a total phoney, but the dumbocrats don’t care, they just believe, right into hell.

Keynes was more complicated than the people who read his books -- either to praise his ideas and put them into action or to attack them. He did recognize the dangers of inflation, but felt that sometimes -- in a Depression situation -- some inflation was justifiable.

In the article I found, Stein was saying that even Keynes wouldn't support Obama's stimulus package. It was a valid argument.
