Obama: Some people wonder why Iím so Ďeven-keeledí
The Washington Examiner ^ | October 9, 2012

Posted on 10/09/2012 4:50:46 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

“I’m not going to spend a long time making a speech,” President Obama explained last night during a fundraiser in San Francisco last night, signalling that he would answer questions instead. “Most of you have been great friends for many years. Many of you supported me when I was running for the United States Senate, much less running for President. And so I think you know who I am and you know what I care about.”

Instead, Obama began reminiscing about growing up in Hawaii, after he was introduced by a childhood friend, Pam Hamamoto.

“It’s true that actually the environment that we grew up in, I think for both of us, still provides us a certain ballast,” he said. “Sometimes people wonder why it is that I seem pretty even-keeled. And I’d like to think that part of it is that’s how I’m hardwired, but part of it is when you spent your formative years in Hawaii, you think to yourself, it can’t be that bad.”

Obama added,”And if it is, then you go to Sandy Beach and you bodysurf and you feel fine afterwards. It washes away all worries.”

Telling stories of Hawaii to try to get their minds off his Muslim studies in Indonesia, not that anyone stupid enough to attend one of his fund raisers really cares anyway.

Making his story shortso they can ask questions. he knows he is among the devoted so he knows there will be no hard questions.

August 13, 2008: Obama body surfing at Sandy Beach in Hawaii

When time are bad.....”.....then you go to Sandy Beach and you bodysurf and you feel fine afterwards. It washes away all worries.” - Obama October 8, 2012

Perhaps some donations in SF will be raised to buy his family the multimillion dollar mansion being advertised as the Obamas' retirement destination.

Story ".....Very quietly, Obama’s chief financier, Penny Pritzker, has entered the Hawaii housing market to buy a retirement home for the president and his family that will be available not in 2016, but in January 2013, according to a confidential source within Pritzker’s Chicago organization.

Pritzker, a wealthy Chicago business executive and heiress to the Hyatt Hotels fortune, served as national finance chairman for Obama’s 2008 campaign and is the co-chairman of his 2012 effort........"

HOUSTON: Victims of Hurricane Katrina stay at the Astrodome stadium, where 16,000 evacuees received food and shelter, in Houston, on Sept. 4, 2005.

".....2007 in Virginia: Senator Barack Obama, presidential stars in his eyes, speaking to a largely black audience of religious leaders and inciting racial animus........

....ten days before Obama gave that speech, Congress had waived the Stafford Act requirement for Katrina. He was well aware of that fact,too. After all, [Obama] was one of only 14 senators to vote against the waiver. It was part of a bill to fund the war effort in Iraq. That is,to pander to his Bush-deranged, anti-war base, Obama decided that squeezing New O’leans was a price worth paying. Then,he lied about what happened in order to foment racial resentment—an atmosphere that he calculated would help his presidential bid.

Just as he’s doing today."

I’m hoping for a nice, even keel-hauling of this punk’s career and legacy.

When he’s all done in the WH, the only job he should be able to get is planting flowers and hand-raking the sand traps and at Bushwood.

The Pritzker family have been big donors to the U of Chicago hospitals (e.g. the Pritzker School of Medicine), which might explain why Michelle Obama landed the job she had there.

A Christian would give honor to Christ. A non-Christian gives honor to self. Guess who Obama honored for his self described even-keeled attribute?

True.

But his other “skill” besides reading from the teleprompter is fabricating his past. Use it or lose it, I guess. He needed to brush up on that skill in case he becomes unemployed in January.

Excellent point.

I’ve always attributed his “cool” to a combination of drugs and simply not caring about anything. In other words, the man is a drug-taking, narcissistic sociopath.

Id lime to what caused him to become so Deceptive and passive aggressive. When he doesn’t get what he wants, he tries to destroy another persons character by any means to get what he wants.

What caused that?

My take - he is going fullbore Nixon. When things got the roughest for Nixon he would inexplicably lapse into monologues about growing up in Whittier California, his mother who was a “saint”, trying out of the football team etc. etc. My guess is that affirmative action boy is going down and he’s starting to reminisce about his childhood, his previous political campaigns (another Nixon trait).
