Obama: Folks Faint All the Time at My Events
weeklystandard.com ^ | 3/7/12 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 03/07/2012 11:26:10 AM PST by ColdOne

President Obama, speaking in North Carolina a short while ago, noticed an audience member had fainted:

"Looks like somebody might've fainted up here, have we got . . . Somebody . . . EMS . . . Somebody . . Don't worry about it: Folks do this all the time in my meetings," Obama said. "You always got to eat before you stand for a long time--that's a little tip. They'll be OK, just make sure--give them a little room.

They faint because they get inundated by the bull$hit coming out of his mouth.

Quick! Someone file a FOI request and find out how much it costs us taxpayers to stock the audience with fainters. I'm sure Pelosi will be quick to point out that these fainters are actually helping the economy.

Maybe they fainted because the light in their head just went on and they could’t believe that he was the President!!

Couple more tips - check your tire pressure, get regular tune-ups, carpool, take public transportation.

BARACK! has become the sound of someone retching violently.

The fainters are usually effeminate white, male ‘RATs. *shrug*

Once again, HE!! confused his terminology, mis-stating “faint” when he meant to say “fall asleep”.

He’s pathetic, dragging out this tired and fake campaign tactic. Yesterday was ridiculous, too, hijacking programming for a narcissistic so-called press conference that laid out his campaign issues and spewed some ridicule on his GOP challengers. Some post- partisan president.

I didn't watch the vid, however one suspects that this alleged swooning is a conscienceless publicity stunt, with a pre-committeed and well-rehearsed response.

Meanwhile, our economy continues its tailspin, Iran is working hammer-and-tong to assemble nukes, our precious military is being systematically declawed and our defense is correspondingly weakened.

One also suspects that the "news" media will downplay the substantive news in favor of the swan dive syncope .

I guess since the money isn’t coming in, we need more “fainters”.

Why don’t they just do that? Run the 2008 campaign...2012 certainly isn’t working for him.

Think how many people would vomit at his events if they were opened up to everyone other than just his psychophant admirers.

obama attracts all the ones who live their lives through emotion and feelings...they would faint seeing Kukla, Fran, and Ollie in person.

These people get gobs of attention by feigning faint and fit-pitching, it's just their thing.

Nothing "immaculate" should be read into this at all.

He suggested that people faint because they have been on their feet for awhile and they haven’t eaten enough.

No kidding. Enough with it already.

Indeed, this is repellant. Nauseating really. I agree with Ulsterman's White House Insider when he says that Barack Obama is a VERY limited wisp of a man.

OTOH....don't ever forget that Obama is an adept in two very dark arts: the art of political ambush and the art of provocation and demogoguery. Political ambush is how he stole the nomination 4 years ago from Hillary, and also how he changed the debate about coercing the conscience of religious believers to a debate about banning contraception.

Our imaginations don't move in the same orbits as Obama's, Van Jones' et al. We meditate on how to do good and how to make our humble, everyday lives incrementally better. Obama and his ilk meditate on only one thing: how to upend that wholesome, everyday life you and I move and breathe in, and pour out all their barely contained, but implacable hatred on it. You and I find this unimaginable, but that's who they are. Most disconcertingly, the increasingly corrupt American people tolerate Obama, and even see in him, Obama the Destroyer, a kind of Advocate and Savior.

My main point here is this: Obama is indeed a very limited, wisp of a man. When, however, by a kind of black magic, the dark talents of such men are fitted to a nation's blind spots, such feeble men cause enormous damage. Don't forget that Mussolini was a weak man, Hitler was a weak man. They were laughed at as clowns, and and deservedly so: they WERE clowns. But give these devils their due. They outmanuvered their opponents--the good, decent people--at almost every turn and left a wake of world-historical destruction behind themselves. Obama et al are pathetic people, but don't short-change their enormous potential to do evil.

Don't let yourself get baited; Obama knew how we would react to his phone call to slut Fluke, as well as the fainting nonsense. That's why he did these acts. He's an arch-provacateur. Anyway, this mini-sermon has gone too long, and it wasn't so much addressed to you in particular, but to anyone trying to get a handle on our situation. God bless us everyone!

I read your "sermon". I think that you're exactly spot-on, and I'm glad that you shared your thoughts on the matter.

It's surprising to me, the number of people I know who compare Obama to Hitler and Mussolini.

Not as a cheap, throwaway insult. But as a reasoned, well-thought-out argument. And, to anyone who has a shred of historical knowledge, the arguments are correct.

History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme.
