Rus, You know higher-up muckitty-mucks in the GOP Party...
GET THIS TO THEM FAST~!!!!
Make Sure Carl sees it too!
THIS NEEDS TO GO VIRAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LET’S ALL CONTACT THE MODERATOR AND ASK THEM TO MARK THIS AS A *MUST READ* AND KEEP IT POSTED AT THE TOP
Even with my ADD brain, I read to the end of that post.
Thanks for posting. What a great read. I will be passing it along.
It is well written and spot on.
Ditto. Please add me to your ping list. Don’t know what the circulation of this column is going to be, but someone ought to get this to Rush and the others.
This could stand as what one might read in a history book sometime in the not too distant future.
Another satisfied customer. Please add me to the list.
Spot on indeed.
Could you add me as well? Thanks.
Could you please add me to the list? This is very good.
Obama does not know how to govern. He does not know how to address the economy or war. The one thing he knows how to do is be popular. That is the one and only skill that he has cultivated in his life. And it is a good skill for a politician, but a politician whose only skill is popularity had better avoid taking responsibility for anything that might make him unpopular.
Ouch - that's going to leave a mark!
———He is also the inventor of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, and is the only person alive who can drink more than three in a single sitting.-——
The comparison to Zaphod doesn’t hold up. The creation of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster was an achievement, an epic achievement. Barack Obama can claim no such achievement. He certainly can not claim to drink more than three.
Barack can’t compete with such a monumental fictional character because he has nothing with which to compete. Zaphod earned all his galactic honors and titles. Hussein was given his by ass kissers kowtowing for recognition.
In his wildest flights of imagination, Barack could never command the Heart of Gold. Being a failed lawyer, he lacks the technical where with all to even understand the concept of such a craft. In his wildest flights of imagination, even with big ears Barack could never under stand the technical complexity much less take the helm and navigate across the galaxy.
Even with the constant aid and assistance of a partially Iranian semi black assistant and a neurotic robot Obama couldn’t muster the brains to guide such a magnificent ship. He would send it out of control tumbling into the path of a galactic hiway crew or perhaps to be burned in the bowels of some star.
His major failing though, as we are seeing daily, is panic
Prez and FL brought Oprah to help bring the Olympic games to Chicago--- the Olympic Committee said no thanks.
I humbly stand corrected. May I be sentenced to wait tables at The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe until closing time...
Perhaps Obama is analogous to the whale which materialized due to the Infinite Improbability Drive, the whale being the high-tech, futuristic version of the Post Turtle?
” The good old days. “
LOL....just one of the gals.
” the Olympic Committee said no thanks. “
Chiefly due to the cost of sweeping up all of the dead bodies every sunday night : )
MO and VJ ruined his relationship with Oprah like a bucket of napalm and a pack of matches used on a rope bridge...
Did you get the ironic bit at the end of Oprah’s recollection? Michelle sat her down and kept going over and over again about how good the White House pastry chefs were. Why they made the best pies, she kept telling her over and over again. Oprah took that as a big fat cue, yet their chat ended and-no pie-”I got no pie.”
Silly girl-as any Tea Partier in 2009 could have told her, in this world you don’t wait for somebody to give you a slice; in this world you make your own damn pie!
LOL——I guess the OC was concerned that the relay teams would have to navigate, maybe jump over, all the dead bodies (registered Democrats) that accumulate every night.
OK, I will send it out to an email list of them I have but never use.
Obama has been flushed and now circles the bowl soon to be but a distant memory.
Perhaps the author of this endless creed should not be so critical of the other long-winded blowhard.
Using half the words would have made this a great article.
Please add me to your list. Thanks!
Now THAT was a delicious read. I only wish I thought Obongo would see it.
Who IS Daniel Greenfield? What a genius. He final puts words to what kind of creatures we are dealing with.
I’m going to print this out and sleep with it under my pillow tonight, LOL.
Yep, and the important consideration is that he wasted, as you said , four years that WE can never get back.HE doesn’t have to get them back, he exploited them every day for all his time in office, and two weeks from now, a gentle and disbelieving sadness will fall over him as he realizes he won’t be allowed any more time at all as the center of attention, yet, even now, delusionally deep-down, he must still expect MORE partying,golfing, celebrity appearances, fund-raising,(what a bitch that was-—too much like real work!) and the opportunity for more vapidly high-falutin’ speeches which are nothing but his signature passport into a perpetual
flavor-of-the-week credibility.So sad he and Mooshy will not have any more of their taxpayer funded Good Times, where they got to play King and Queen of the New Order.
Having said all that this piece by Daniel Greenberg is the best and bluntest thing about the Obama Phenomenon I’ve ever read. A post-mortem delivered two full weeks before he gets the message from a majority of US.
“Godbye, Barack....it’s been real”.
I hope they bring a good fumigation company with them. (Seriously)
“Thanks for posting....a very gifted writer.”
Mmm... I'd say a pretty large swath does, indeed, hate him, and with good reason.
Very true, and my only exception taken with this offering, another in an OUTSTANDING string of grand slams from one of THE most gifted essayists of our time !
Thank again, ex :-)
And so he is over because the alternative to him being over is the tastemakers having to confront their own overness. Their own mortality. . .
“But Obama is determined to be a hipster to the very end, instead of embracing the shamelessness of his own media manipulations, he veers erratically between an insincere sincerity and the sneer of the spitefully superior. It’s the performance we saw in the third debate, the antics of every college kid you ever argued with, that combination of smugness and insecurity that marks the hipster as an impossible conversationalist.”
Wow. Just wow. Greenfield is brilliant.
Add me to the list too - thanks !
You're right Kitten...
Sounds like 98% of the college professors that's I've ever dealt with.
So he's Paris Hilton. And just like her, he's the biggest waste of carbon since the soft-lead pencil.
Awesome and thoughtful post! And sooooo true on many levels!
Yep, O’s legacy is dying a slow death just like Oprah’s OWN network. Oprah should be somewhere nice, retired with her billion dollars. But instead she’s going to blow it all to prop up a failing TV network that will never go anywhere. Like 0bama, she went to the well too many times and people just want her to go away already.
Ah, The Hunt for Red Ohio!
Using half the words would have made this a great article.
1) Your screen name definitely fits.
2) It's screed, dearie.
3) Would you like some cheese with your whine?
How can we set this article to music so that we can sing it on November 6 ?
Oh ... My ... God! TOTALLY .... LAID .... WASTE !!!
And he didn't even call them "Chicago Boyz".
It’s amazing how his essays stimulate the mind and touch heart at the same time.
I am forever grateful to expat1000 for introducing Mr. Greenfields work to me.
Expect Romney to govern in much the way Gerry Ford did, only more of a Mr. Manager type. I'm afraid of what he will do to social issues -- if he has a GOProud dinner on Inaugural Night, for instance.
He will need, if he's going to go into Barky's stuff, three or four special prosecutors and maybe a committee of the Congress (to jail on "contempt of Congress" anyone who refuses to testify to matters under their knowledge).
He'll need another for Fast & Furious.
He'll need yet another for Barky's sub-rosa dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Umma, including Benghazi and the questions about Obama's citizenship (I'm still halfway convinced he may be an Indonesian, not American, citizen, and that at a minimum, he kept his Indonesian passport beyond the surrender date, making an "election" of citizenship in favor of Indonesia, back when he was in his 20's -- which would mean he's no longer NBC, even if arguendo he was when he was born).
Tom Daschle, Nancy Pelosi, Axelcheat, and others will also be in the sight picture. This has the capacity to be a really big constitutional SNAFU, requiring rescission of dozens of Obama executive orders, and possibly Obamacare.
Against all of that, some GOP advisors will be telling Romney to move on, no scandals, no investigations -- just let us get in there use the honeymoon period to start shoveling out the money!!! [Pigs at the Trough IV.]
Thank you for posting this savory piece.
It was well written and hit all the important notes.
Please add me to your Ping list. Thanks.
Thanks for the correction, I am humbled by your sharp eye.
I loves me some cheese.
Thank you for this link. What a cathartic thing to read./p>
... and the questions about Obama's citizenship (I'm still halfway convinced he may be an Indonesian, not American, citizen, and that at a minimum, he kept his Indonesian passport beyond the surrender date, making an "election" of citizenship in favor of Indonesia, back when he was in his 20's -- which would mean he's no longer NBC, even if arguendo he was when he was born).
I'm still wondering how he got to be IL state Senator and U.S. Senator when both offices require American citizenship. If he wasn't a U.S. citizen of ANY sort (I have my doubts) what sort of skids (or palms) were greased to make his entry into those offices possible?
