You hear the one about Obama’s biggest mistake?

Exclusive: Joseph Farah has good laugh over prez's 'Bart Simpson-like juvenile appeal'

Sometimes Barack Obama cracks me up.

That’s not easy to do for a wannabe tyrant with no respect for the Constitution, one who has systematically concealed every meaningful document about his personal history, one who has “fundamentally transformed America” into something much less than the shining city on a hill Ronald Reagan envisioned, one who personally directed his White House and Justice Department to run guns to Mexican drug cartels so they could be used to kill at least U.S. law enforcement agents and probably hundreds of U.S. and Mexican civilians.

But still, sometimes his audaciously prideful arrogance is just so overwhelming no other reaction would do besides a good belly-laugh.

That was my reaction to his answer to CBS interviewer Charlie Rose last week when asked to ruminate on the biggest mistake of his first term.

A normal American with compassion and humility might have answered any of the following ways:

“My biggest regret is that my prescriptions for turning around the economy haven’t worked as quickly as I would have liked, leaving many Americans hurting financially.”

“My biggest regret is that there are still millions of unemployed Americans despite the steps we have taken to get people back to work.” “My biggest regret is for the loss of American lives we’ve continued to experience in two foreign wars I inherited and some other military conflicts I have determined were necessary for the security of the United States.”

In fact, I could dream up at least a dozen answers like this that. And though they might not be sincere reflections of Obama’s attitudes, they would have been mature, politick answers, adult responses to a question any grown-up would see coming in a presidential election year,

“The mistake of my first term . . . was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right,” he said. “And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”

What’s so hilarious about this answer is it’s Bart Simpson-like juvenile appeal: Imagine Bart up to his neck in some kind of mischief. He gets caught. The principal of his school asks him if he has any regrets. He responds, “Yeah, I wish I had a better story to tell. I wish I could talk my way out of this.”

His biggest mistake is wasting tax money and now wasting money to campaign. He spends too much money that he hasn’t earned.

The CEO is blaming the company’s poor sales on the marketing and advertising department while failing to realize that the poor sales are a result of a flawed product that no one wants.

I don’t care how much pickles and mayonnaise you use.”

” . . . chicken chit.”

That reminds me. When our aunt was a child, she was in the chicken yard; was chewing gum - which fell out of her mouth onto the ground. She bent over and picked it up (times wuz hard then); only when she chewed down, it wasn’t gum in her mouth.

Ya’ll will one day learn not to mention chicken chit to Twinkie. I always tell this story anytime someone mentions chicken chit . . hee hee! ;o)

This crooked thug has stolen and spent more money than any other human being in the history of the world.

Just another way he is like Clinton who kept insisting “They weren’t getting their message out clearly “
