Skip to comments.Obama: Copping Out and Checking Out
Posted on 09/10/2014 9:09:17 AM PDT by jazusamo
Years ago, a trustworthy friend told me a story about then-state senator Barack Obama and himself. Both were members of the East Bank Athletic Club -- a ritzy health club miles and a lot of money away from Barack Obamas district and church -- a private club for the 1%. Pickup basketball games were quite common. Obama often liked to play basketball, a sport where his height would seemingly give him an edge. My friend is taller than Obama, however, and often blocked Obama shots-embarrassing him (Obama is not a good basketball player anyway, going 2 for 22 shooting free throws while playing hoops with kids; 2 for 22 sounds about right for his record as president).
Eventually, every time he tried to play in a game against Obama, Barack would find a reason to leave -- offering a range of excuses: his wife, social plans, a meeting to attend, a pre-existing commitment. When Obama announced his presidency my friend confided in me he thought that Barack Obama would make a bad president.
Why? When facing a challenge, Obama always found an excuse to quit: to cop out and check out.
His prophecy has been fulfilled.
Recall how it all began-in 2008 when all history began anew.
Barack Obama was called an enlightened being -- a lightworker; later, he was called a sort of God. He was not one to show false modesty, boasting:
I think that Im a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And Ill tell you right now that Im gonna think Im a better political director than my political director.

Narcissism on parade!
He’s as smart as his voters.
Those are some bizarre quotes from a guy who has turned out to be a real JV president.
Tonight millions of Americans...and our enemies will watching and listening to POTUS Barack Hussein Obama rant & rave. I will not be one of them!!! Why? Obama lies....all the time!!! End of story!!! Trusting Obama is something I will not do!!!
They surely are and I’ve read them before.
I believe Lasky did a good job of spelling out the character, or lack of it, in 0bama with this article, he pretty much brought it all together.
Aw, c’mon! another FReeper (can’t remember handle) posted the drinking game rules for the speech, you should be snockered in NO time!
“Drinking rules should be published by the end of the day.
One drink when he says Let me be clear.
Two drinks when he says ISIL
One drink each time he says I, or me.
Two drinks when he claims Congress has tied his hands.
One drink when he touches his nose.(sign of lying)
Bottoms up when he blames Bush.
Exactly, nor will I be watching.
LOL! That’d be about the same as not watching at all, maybe 3 or 4 minutes.
You give him too much credit. He's LOSING to the JV.
He's not checked out. He never checked in. Ever. Once. In his life.
He's the prompter reader. The drug him up (probably), send him out, pat his back and tell him how wonderful he is and let him rest (because he can't handle anything too taxing) until he needs to do it again guy.
Someone else has always greased the wheels for this guy. He has Weekend at Bernie's his entire life. He's been a vehicle for other people's ambitions.
“Hes as smart as his voters.”
I will agree with Don Imus’s brother Fred. If does not announce his resignation in the first minute, I am turning it off.
The only time I might watch Clown Prince nobama is when he is arrested, restrained and frog-marched out of the white hut to trial for his many, many crimes.
Substitute “insane” for “hussein” and it might work.
With pals Holder and Reid at his side.
When seeing Obama’s antics, I sometimes I muse on the following:
Imagine you are president and you have been given the information that no matter what you do, WWII will come in, at the most, three years.
No matter what you do.
What would you do?
If he was resigning it would be the largest TV audience in the history of the country.
