No doubt Hitler, Mao, Stalin, and Mussolini were the bee’s knees in their day too.
Sorry, Brooks but you cannot match Dinesh.
Absolutely a pathetic attempt to sanitize the Commie In Chief.
Zer0 worships at the alter of Rev. Wright, Frank Marshall Davis , Bill Ayers, his grandfather, white trash mother and bust-out commie father.
Yep, quite a resume’.
I don’t understand why so-called conservative commentators solicit his opinions.
“We are not amused” - Queen Victoria
Most of it is actually pretty funny
If saying “I” every tenth word is humility, then obama is a very humble man.
If playing continual golf while the economy is dying is cool, then obama is really cool.
If high achievement is spending money at a record pace, then obama is a very high achiever.
.....And so “yesterday” Mr. Brooks.
The truth of the matter is that like Raymond Shaw in “The Manchurian Candidate”, the proclaimed virtues never were in evidence. In spite of repeated assertions that, yes, “Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known ...”, he possessed, in fact, few of the qualities attributed to him, or at best, in only a very small degree.
The Current Occupant fails totally at being humble, has no achievements he can point to and say, “I did that better than anybody else could or would have”, and “coolness” is a quality that dissolves in flop sweat.
And in his heart, the Current Occupant knows this to be true. The act can continue only so long, then he becomes Jimmy Carter redux, criticizing that which he no longer has access to.
There was an old tale, long attributed to Abraham Lincoln, in which a supposedly much wiser person was asked, “If a dog’s tail were called a leg, how many legs would a dog have?”
The answer, of course, was, “Four.”
Explanation? “Just because you call a dog’s tail a leg, doesn’t make it a leg.”
I suppose David wrote his praise on some lavatory’s wall, with his phone number, before it was published in the New York Times.
What and/or who is he talking about?!? The only obama I can think of is none of those. Whatever Brooks is drinking, that ain't coffee.
And I saw a cartoon the other day that showed George Soros standing in the Veranda of the Democratic Party Plantation saying to fetch his house nigga as Obama came running to do his massa’s bidding.
Sounds like the author’s got something in their vein, too...
Show us his high achieving grades
There comes a time in life when most see the frivolity and immaturity in valuing “cool” over wisdom. It’s Rush’s favorite line, “Symbolism over substance”.
Doing the chicken strut when you walk with your underwear showing, is not “cool”...it’s more like “monkey see - monkey do”. There’s no more originality in that than wearing your cap backwards or sporting a “hoodie” in the middle if July.
But, liberalism is built around groupthink and faddism, any original thought is quelled by peer pressure and emotionalism.
Most of the guys I know in high school, who were considered “cool” at the time, are either in jail, hooked on drugs, or collecting food stamps.
The “dorks”, or “squares” of the day are now doctors, lawyers, engineers, or running corporations. The “cool” ones - who are not on probation - are working for the nerds.
The real meaning of “cool” turns out to be the ones who have succeeded in life, who don’t depend on the government or anyone to feed their families and raise their kids. The real “cool” ones have worked hard and made their own way in life. They don’t need brand-name clothing or $300 sneakers to make them “hip”.
Unless you’re in high school, or at a party, “cool” means very little to the rest of the world. I mean, how many ways can one break-dance anyway?
Obama is the prime example of all this, very “cool” in public, but inept, and a total failure.
I can’t really say what I think of this marxist punk or some gubmint goons would visit me.
Course they can kill bush in movies without problems but I can’t even say what I’d like to see happen to him.
David Brooks needs some serious dental work.
And while he is at it, some psychiatric help!
