Skip to comments.Obama as father figure (Barf Alert)
Posted on 10/27/2012 12:51:49 PM PDT by Arthurio
As we careen towards the finish line in this tumultuous electoral season, President Obama is asking voters to renew his contract as a father figure. And with his new, 11th-hour message that this election is all about trust, I think the father-thing is going to resonate. Without going all Carl Jung on you, presidential campaigns are often about archetypes. John McCain as warrior. Paul Ryan as super-hero. Joe Biden as the loyal friend.
In 2008, with the whole hope and change narrative not to mention his youthful good looks and energy Obama was situated somewhere between Jesus Christ and Rock Star in our collective unconscious. But now look at him. After four sobering years of economic crisis and an Arab Spring that just wont quit, that increasingly-visible graying of the hair above his ears is symbolic. The President has aged, matured, and like the rest of us parents seems both wiser and wearier as a result.
Its evident in the way that he speaks to us. As Ive watch the presidential debates with my own kids, Ive been struck by how parental he sounds. Particularly in the third and final debate, where the president could barely mask his disdain for Mitt Romneys less-than-up-to-date grasp of our military, many pundits including my colleague, Melinda Henneberger saw his tone as patronizing, and wondered whether it wouldnt alienate undecided women voters in particular.
Patronizing? Perhaps. But isnt that what parents do? They tell us whats good for us in an eat your spinach sort of way and get exasperated, at times, when we just dont get it. And the most annoying part of that schtick, as we all know, is that theyre often right.

His campaign is all about vagina’s and lady parts... now we get into incest territory?
Barack Obama as the stoner down the street
Joe Biden as the obnoxious drunk down at the corner bar
Was Delia’s father a bigamist, who abandoned her shortly after birth?
So in so many words, this ditz is telling us she likes to be told what to do by a powerful authority figure. Which of course goes against the “strong woman” stereotype that rad feminists have been preaching about for more than forty years. So Romney is that kindly uncle who slips you a fifty during the holidays and lets you do what you want to do. (for the record, I wish I had an uncle like that). What a load of hooey. This nitwit is just another Obamaton who likes to take her marching orders from her master. Like all leftists: they’re either dictators or slaves.
So... is he every woman’s daddy or are they supposed to give him their virginity?
Or is it both at the same time?
It my brain hurt makes.
If you use the antonym for the 3rd word, and a different six-letter 'F' word at the end, you may get more agreement...
Foreman of the jury: "We voted to acquit."
Joe Biden as the loyal friend
No, Delia, it's supposed to be:
Joe Biden as the doofus that everyone can ridicule.
No way I can read the whole article. My blood pressure is high enough. Someone gets paid for this drivel? I think I would enjoy punching her in the face.
I noticed the comments at the end of the article won’t load.
I wonder why? Bwahahahahahaha!
Ug...why is this skank making us all listen to her masturbation fantasies?
I can’t believe that there are morons out there who still “trust” Barry Soetoro after what we’ve seen over the past four years. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
Obomoron knows best.
Those bags must be made of kevlar
Q: What’s the first thing an Obama girl says after she loses her voting virginity?
