Obama as Farce
American Thinker ^ | April 11, 2012 | William L. Gensert

Posted on 04/11/2012 6:54:18 AM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

Karl Marx said history repeats itself, "first as tragedy, then as farce." Barack Obama has reversed that. His first term was certainly farce; his second will be tragedy.

Obama has Forrest Gumped his way through his presidency, except without the success, charm, and endearing sweetness of the original. He has given America three and a half years of farce, even if no one is laughing. He is an adumbrated president, desperate about his re-election prospects. Sold as a bipartisan moderate, a post-racial healer, a transformative leader -- we were told he would not just solve our problems, but heal the earth and save humanity.

Open Mic Catches Obama Asking Medvedev for Space on Missile Defense
March 26, 2012

"In a private conversation about the planned U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe, President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for space on the issue.

This is my last election,” Obama told Medvedev. “After my election I have more flexibility.”

“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Medvedev said, referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin."

__________________________________________________

Obama was talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones. Here is what they said:

Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space.”

Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you ...”

Obama: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” That statement tells us much about the president’s mindset.

The specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear implication from the president’s comments is that he cannot tell the American people before the election what he plans to do after the election.

In addition, there is the phrase “on all these issues,” implying more is at stake than just missile defense.”

WHY would anyone be surprised?

Our FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT hates America and is doing all he can to destroy it one $Trillion at a time.

A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.

Currently at least 40 % of American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his dictatorship.

Dictator Obama has designed Obama”care” to become active only AFTER he is re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).

The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he as achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.

Obama’s obvious deep hatred of America could have only come from his childhood.

Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obama’s past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.

The lack of credible evidence that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.

Who the key members of Obama’s probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the CIA and the FBI.

Will the “Citizen Journalists” such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy these two tax-funded spy entities?

BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.

BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculation: what does your gut tell you?

Obama is a COMMUNIST. He has no religion other than Marxism. Commies despise religion. They think it's for idiots, despite his sucking up to the islamo-facists and his phony "Black Liberation" (communist) form of "Christianity". The only thing the commie left has in common with radical islam is both hate the US and Israel and want them destroyed.

America is retarded. Last time I was making a similar point, and some dude, not even a liberal, just a dude with a butt hurt narcissistic ego, went off at me asking me: “what are you writing man? A book?”

So much for trying to help people understand the situation.

It’s like when I was leaving Africa, I was telling local folkes the problems they were going to encounter, and their response was: “Chill man”

Chill? OK, I guess I am the one leaving the wretching place, and I was giving a freebie information instead of not caring, but that’s wasted, apparently.

Beyond sinful sexual or nicotine fix with a bit of music, people do not give a crap. Obama is one of those types who thinks wealth comes out of a miracle spigot in a wine cellar without any respect for the care of the crops and their care takers.

Three branches of government become one as the president becomes king.

Photobucket
King Zer0

Barack installs himself as head of all 3 branches of government.

After 3+ years, we have found that Obama's purpose and agenda did not fit the meaning of his words and promises. He always felt that the Supreme Court was inconsequential and Congress was just something to go around if one wanted real social justice.

So now President Trojan Horse, the former 'lecturer' on the Constitution at the University of Chicago, was forced on the defensive Wednesday and has set forth a 'good example' of judicial activism. He's disbanded the 'do-nothing' Congress and the nine Supremes.

The 'You'll Never Be Able To Go Back To Your Life As You've Known It' Act was signed into law by the all-infuriating Barry Jackwagon Obama who said that 'in order for all of us to get along and go along the three branches of the American government are hereby decreed to be headed by the Jug Eared CinC Cipher who resides in the Oval Office.'

With his new authority the Supreme Ruler commanded it 'a duly constituted and passed law' of the land.

Barry admitted his first big premeditated lie to the American people was when he took the oath of office... to uphold and defend the Constitution. He said it was a 'major lie.' Then the all- knowing and sensing president also muttered something to the effect that his entire life has been leading up to this revolutionary moment and that resistance was futile... The planned hell-holes you all will eventually end up in don't allow vacations or SUV's...

Yep. The communist is a hater and denunciator, not much different than a little girl witch who makes false statements against daddy to mummy because daddy told her candies are not good for her teeth and she cannot have any before bed.

They hate all higher powers of reason with an incomprehensible detailed fury. Any petty contradiction gets them in fits of rage, as if demon possessed. They infect government because judges and cops think they should be immune from criticism and going to prison too. So it is easy for them to infiltrate and corrupt the government, and the King who was a higher power, they secretly crave the position in fact. It’s not fascist if they do it, indeed.

Be uplifted by the “Balcony People,” and tolerate the “Basement People.”

“Barack Obama has reversed that. His first term was certainly farce; his second will be tragedy.
Obama has Forrest Gumped his way through his presidency,”

“... I think he has Gilliganized his way through...”

I do like both metaphors, but my favorite would be likening the situation to 20 years of America Animal House-ing its way through history.

The Clinton years were certainly farce with the Deltas in charge.

Then the country swung back to having the Omegas run the place.

Now we are back to the Deltas with the Clintons and their crew - Obama, Axelrod, Plouffe, Holder, Hilary, Lew, Krugman, Kagan, Bernanke et al, taking us to the tragedy part. But, perhaps it will just be more farce.
