Skip to comments.The Tailor Who Sewed the Obama Empty Suit Has Sewn Others

The most glaring fact about our president is that he is an empty suit. The people around him are also empty suits. They believe in nothing, really, but unearned luxury, unmerited adulation, and unaccountable power. Those whom we have come to call "leftists" are in fact nothing but nihilists, and we flatter them when we presume that they value anything beyond their vanities, their avarice, and their selfishness.
When tragedy strikes, like in the Boston bombing, these empty suits can look and act appropriately somber and serious, but it is all for show, and the intended audience are Americans who have been carefully cultivated into creatures who emote in response to momentary appearances but who cannot think clearly or remember the past.
The left began to drift towards this profound silliness decades ago. FDR, for example, freely acknowledged that he had no real plan to fix the nation's economic distress. His treasury secretary, Henry Morgenthau, six years into the New Deal, freely admitted to the House Ways and Means Committee that:
We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong ... somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises[.] ... I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started...[a]nd an enormous debt to boot!

I agree Obama is an empty suit who can't speak without a teleprompter. But this comparison is extremely unfair to Dilbert.
Rather than comparing Traitorobama’s intellectual substance to that of an empty suit, a more equivalent comparison, in terms of density, would be intergalactic space.
As Chesterton said, He who does not believe in God will believe in anything.
That analysis is almost too poignant.
Nobama bounces from thing to thing and seems quite willing to use whichever group is blind enough to not see the self-centered shallowness.
Not quite fair to say that they believe in “nothing”. They have a long list of enemies - real and perceived - and they have never wavered from sticking it to any and all of the people and groups on that list.
Similarly they believe in certain other causes - among them islamism, gay rights, and environmental whackoism which happily (for them) allows them to “stick it to the man” even more.
You could also say the Emperor has no clothes.
They are Obammunists, or Crony Socialists
All the worst of crony capitalism combined with all the worst of socialism
RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
