...Obama took a stroll. In public. And talked to people.
Washington Post ^ | 5/22/14 | KATIE ZEZIMA

Posted on 05/23/2014 4:56:53 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

...."It's good to be out," he said as he strolled across the Ellipse, suit jacket tossed over his shoulder. "The bear is loose."...

He also ran into a very excited woman named Karen.

"Oh my gosh, this is like the best day of my life," Karen said. She then posed for a photo with Obama.

Could it be a sign?

Nixon did the same thing when he realized
that he was in serious trouble.

I caught myself laughing. It’s not funny because this works on most Americans. It works because the of the media propagandists. How would they have treated a Bush walkabout?

I read yesterday that 20% of those polled blame Obama for the VA disaster.

Sickening, frankly. “The bear is out!” my ass. Leave it to WP to put a ‘spontaneous’ good-hearted nature to this obviously planned foray into the arms of the ‘little people’.

This man should be in jail instead of out concocting optics.

Well, Karen was obviously there because she has the time to do it, what with her probably being on TANF, SNAP, EITC, Section 8, etc. No job - lots of time?

Hhhhmmmm, maybe, just maybe he will do the same thing this weekend when Rolling Thunder rolls into DC, you know, go take a walk down amongst all those Veteran’s. I sincerely doubt he will do it, because that would assume that he packed the gear to walk amongst the real giants in America and we all know he DOES NOT.

“It’s good to be out,” — why does everything have to be about the gay lifestyle to him?

“The bear is loose.”... — I seriously doubt he would be considered a “bear” in the gay community.

He’s made everything about homosexuality. I just want to stay on topic with him.

I remember a WP story of a Richard M. Nixon making an early morning outing to personally discuss their beefs. WP excoriated him.

Now, today with a tyrant who is astronomically so far above Nixon’s travails of deception we are relegated to optics puff pieces that don’t really amount to sh!t in a government riddled with it.

The bear is loose." Yes. We know. President Reagan told us all about the bear in his 1984 campaign ad.

I’m not impressed. The least he could have done was walk on water at the reflecting pool.

But then again, I suppose he doesn’t want to show off. The WAPO ponders his divinity from time to time, but like a politically incorrect historical figure (according the left) the Won won’t proclaim himself, yet.

One doesn’t need a 3D printer to feel the slobbering gush of this “news” article.

I'm sure the area was very thoroughly scoured to ensure there were sufficient Karen types and absolutely, under no circumstances, any Joe the Plumber types for Little Stevie Dunham to 'casually encounter'.

A local radio station runs a daily commentary by Tom Brokaw (yes, he is still around apparently).

Earlier this week he was on there railing about the horrible inconvenience caused to his New York City neighborhood when Lord Obama paid a visit earlier in the week.

All the residents were put on lockdown. Forbidden to come out of their own homes. Outrageous! Total disregard for our liberties! Something really should be done!

At least if you are a retired talking head living on the Upper East Side apparently. If you’re some hourly wage schmuck out there in flyover country, then just shut-up and take it.

Given the gulag-like security preparations for Obama that Brokaw described, no way in hell this stroll on the elipse was spontaneous.

I have heard “American Story” quite a few times by Tom Brokaw...since he was diagnosed with cancer it SEEMS to me that Brokaw has become a bit more balanced in his commentary....not as reliably liberal as you might think.

Perhaps he has realized his own mortality...met the Lord...who knows?

That was my first thought as well. We’ve seen this movie before.

A stroll like this is a psychological coping mechanism. He’s walking away from the box he’s in, if even for a while to get out from under the mounting pressures and complexities of his problems. Its only a brief, momentary escape.

But the hard reality is he can’t run away. Deep down, he’s also looking to come across someone who will give him some sympathy. Like Nixon, Obama is cornered and he is feeling the heat.

He knows quite well that any more bad news (e.g., another scandal, another exposed lie, another diplomatic blunder, an economic setback, a sudden drop in the stock market, etc.) might be the last straw for him and his party.

The country is tiring of this president. Voter fatigue is setting in for sure.

Once again, its always about him. He’s such a narcissist, and those types of people don’t deal well with setbacks and failure. Obama is on the verge of a psychological meltdown IMO.
