Barack Obama -- a legend in his own mind?
New York Post ^ | June 18, 2012 | By Michael Goodwin

Posted on 06/18/2012 8:01:57 AM PDT by Mr. K

Watching President Obama flop around like a fish out of water, careening from gaffe to desperation to dishonesty, I find myself searching for ways to put his troubling behavior into historic perspective.

Is this The Unmaking of a President? Or is it The Unmasking? Perhaps we are witnessing an American Tragedy. Or maybe we’re seeing final proof his election was The Great Mistake.

All those fit the facts, and lead to a shared conclusion. So far, the 2012 election has almost nothing to do with Mitt Romney. Even the GOP doesn’t love its choice, but the race is a dead heat because Obama is so disappointing.

His fall from grace does more than merely confirm the conventional wisdom that elections are a referendum on the incumbent. Notwithstanding White House efforts to make the race about something or someone else, Obama remains the straw that stirs the drink.

But what a strange straw he is. Far stranger than we knew.

If you look at Baraq’s history, every election he won was vs. an inept / damaged opponent.

Obviously McLame fit that category perfectly.

Baraq is like a heavyweight champ who never fought a guy with a winning record.

I think a fitting tribute to the Cretin-in-Chief will be mandatory “Barack Hussein Obamaloon” memorial urinals in every bathroom in the land.

Complete with a pic of the dork right in the center.

I’ll drink water/beer/whatever so that I can piss on the worthless piece of excrement every chance I can.

“troubling behavior”

What is troubling, he is going to plan. He, his wife, all the Czars he appointed changing policy all hate this country and are doing their best to destroy it.

None of this should have been a surprise - all you have to do is listen to him - he said what he believes, said what he was going to do and did it.

The sad part is the other two co-equal branches are doing little to nothing to stop it.

"Without the fabrication, “not much is left,” Ferguson says. Obama’s memoir thus turns out to be a hologram of a fiction of his life instead of the real thing."

Slight correction for the author.

Obozo, the phony mystery man, left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor.

He has adulterated his 900 member White Hut staff with sodomists-to-be-honored. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president? Unfortunately, Americans with functioning brains know the answer: half of Americans are either functioning illiterates, or enjoy the wild ride to destruction of this nation!

Of course much blame can be assigned to our one-party system.

“The book confirms again that the mainstream media failed miserably to vet Obama four years ago...”

If the MSM got a pass for getting into bed wit Billy Boy and whitewashing HIS monkeyshines... they ought to be permanently reduced to irrelevance in this, the most demonstrably spectacular breakdown of credibility ANY organization or profession has EVER accomplished!!

How the MSM, supposedly the watch dog of the public interest, could proudly and very publicly expose its unconditional and wholesale bias in favor of a candidate (ANY candidate) and yet ‘report’ on politics in this country with any expectation of authority is beyond me!!

I’d sooner trust a circus clown!

“Barack Obama — a legend in his own mind?”

Also a legend amongst about the 90% of black morons that voted for him because of his color and who will do so again even though this legend is responsible for their incredibly high unemployment rate and the addition of 800,000 ILLEGALS who are now in competition for any jobs that happen to be out there.

The only authentic part of obama is the central, pulsing, throbbing core of evil. Everything else exists to cover that part from view.

The man who campaigned against the “torture” of war prisoners boasts of killing suspects while taking no prisoners. He called rising debts “un-American” before setting a new record for borrowing. He railed against the imperial presidency before stretching it beyond recognition. The former law-school instructor tried to bully the Supreme Court.

Between now and the election the press will do their best to be 'oh so shocked' that Obama sometimes acts like a tough conservative. It's part of the 'sell' - primarily used to pull in Independents. And hoodwink RINO's... 'See, see, see how tough and conservative Obama is?" It's like Clinton's sister souljah moment. The 'doting court eunuchs' of the MSM fail to notice that this is an effective ploy.

Should Romney win the election -- and I'm not yet convinced he will -- it will be most interesting to see just who, what, and how much of B. Hussein's "planted infrastructure" he removes. I'm willing to bet czars and lots of other garbage will remain in place. Apathy is just too easy. And should the Supreme Court saddle us with commie-care... Frightening, but it's an easy scenario to believe.

That is the one question I would ask Mitt how many of these czars will you keep. I would hope the answer would be 0

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

You had me several years ago
When I was still quite naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well, you’re where you should be all the time
And when you’re not, you’re with
Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you? Don’t you?

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you

You’re so vain (so vain)
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you? Don’t you?

We have not developed a successful weapon against the racial guilt of the majority of white Americans, and its expression in such monstrosities as Affirmative Action.

oing little to nothing to stop it? Hell, they started enabling it with the swearing in by the pirate Roberts, who had the little bastard commie over to the SCOTUS inner sanctum before the election was dried on paper, while the issue of his ineligibility was being punted around in the inner circle.
