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
Who would want a communist fag as father figure?
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?
My father didn’t have limp wrists!
The only article which comes even close to this one was a column from one of the Twin City papers about Walter Mon-dull’s “heroic” decision to pick up Wellstone’s mantle and seek his Senate seat. The columnist pictured Mon-dull seated in his bathrobe after a warm bath but valiantly answered the call out into the bitter cold of another campaign against the vicious GOP.
What about the rest of you, Comrades!?!?
So what’s a father figure doing advertising himself as good for a ‘first time’?
And mine was never schooled by a domestic terrorist.
Some Democrat bloggers exalted when Obama was elected that the "adults" were finally back in charge, but it doesn't appear to have worked out that way.
When it comes to politics people can read just about anything into just about everything. But if you find yourself looking at a politician and thinking "Daddy," you're better off keeping it to yourself.
MY father was not Malcolm the Tenth!
Ain’t no daddies in the Ghetto...
Poppa had 42 years of service when he retired, I’m an army brat.
Somehow, I do not, did not and cannot imagine anyone so confused as to write that about Obama. The man she is describing is not Obama. The question is what would so cloud her perceptions that she may actually see Obama, as the fantasy that she describes?
So many things come to mind....
-Sounds like she is describing a N. Korean despot.
-A father would do everything possible to prevent his children from being slaughtered.
-A father would never his daughter to star in a sleazy video to advance his cause.
Is this then “The Fatherland”?
Just substitute “the rich” for “the Jews” and the picture falls right into place.
If he was my son I’d take down to the wood shed and whoop his a$$!
If I’m not too mistaken, the Obama-Stalin poster says,
“BELOVED STALIN - THE PEOPLES’ HAPPINESS!!”
But it doesn't distill the Creepy Soviet style worship the Obots give him.
My father went to church and did not say he did not know what the preacher was saying after 20 years.
So, Delia, the Demoncrats are saying women should lose their virginity to their father. Isn’t that a bit icky?
I wouldn’t know a word of Russian except in 2003 I was deployed to Uzbekistan during OIF-1. The Uzbeks still spoke Russian after decades of Soviet rule & in working with them I found it much easier to learn some Russian rather than try to speak their Turkic language.
FWIW, the souvenir shop on base offered Stalin era posters along with Uzbek cultural items. The older Uzbeks told me horror stories about life under communism while the young people waxed nostalgic about Stalin & being part of the greater USSR. Strange.
I know a couple of Russian girls the same age as me (24) and they HATE Communism and everything associated with it.
But then you have my own German Jewish Grandmother, who escaped the Nazi's in the 40's and has acquired a considerable amount of wealth over the years.
She Would do ANYTHING for the Social Democratic Party of Germany.
If I were a German Jew who could remember the 1930's under Hitler, I would stay far away from any party that had "Socialist" in it.
But she would stay on board the Titanic if the S.D.P told her to do so.
I truly don't understand it.
They moved to NY area in the mid-eighties. Both parents are vehemently anti-left. The daughter is a screaming marxist.
I also know a very bright (but idiotic) woman of 55 whose family lost everything to Castro. Give her a glass of wine and watch the tears and anger flow. She lives in a $1.5 million home on LI's Gold Coast and makes a living day-trading.
One would expect her to be to the right of JR but she actually thinks that obamski let her down because he moved too much to the middle after getting elected.
Obamski won primarily because he appealed to the various segments in America that were ripe for an "eff-you daddy" rebellion vote.
McCain, old, white haired, hetero, grouchy white guy represented the Euro-patriarch to college students, white women, blacks, queers, latinos and any American who ever felt any degree of powerless resentment.
They voted against "daddy" in favor of "The Leader of the Pack".
Well, the Leader of the Pack got them drunk, stripped them down, took what he wanted and left them without so much as a good-night kiss. Then he went next door and f***ed their sister.
Hopefully they now want "daddy" to pick them up, heal their broken heart and make everything good again.
The Stupid! It BURNS!
So truly mislead people like that young Russian/Ecuadoran woman, your Cuban friend and even the author of this article makes me both stark raving angry and at the same time very sad.
They would be the first to the wall and They don't even know it.
