The Incredible Shrinking Messiah

October 26, 2011

Obama’s tour was meant to coincide with Harry Reid getting the bite-sized jobs bill through the Senate. The left was certain that the Occupy Wall Street strategy would pressure the Republicans to fork over more extortion payments. People were supposed to be outraged by now, ready to join Obama in blaming Wall Street fat cats—the “step-on-your-throat” capitalists who would run over their grandmothers to get ahead. The Democrats knew their liberal minions would be all too willing to be the useful idiots, too duped to realize they are pawns in a class-warfare game. The irony is that useful idiots want to be rich, too. The bigger irony is that the OWS movement has become farcical, like looking at the real America in a funhouse mirror. With the OWS movement’s failure, unless Obama finds people in the other “seven states with one left to go,” he will have a large inventory of snake oil left over in the White House basement.

Los Angeles Times reporter Peter Nicholas wrote of Obama’s last tour stop:

…Obama stood at a lectern against a backdrop of firefighters and offered his prescription for solving the persistent jobs crisis: “A fair shot for everybody; a fair share from everybody. That’s the principle that built America.”

How naïve for Obama to say something so silly. Nothing is fair. Conservatives understand this by age five. If life were fair, there would be no ugly people. If life were fair, we could all accomplish nothing, get elected president, and be awarded Nobel Peace Prizes.

America was built on a promise of freedom from a tyrannical king and protection from a tyrannical government. America is a country where a man defines his own status, not has it assigned. America offers opportunity for success and an equal chance to fail.

Nicholas further describes the final Obama stop:

The president got a polite reception from the 100 or so people crowded into the station garage. Early in his speech he mentioned his American Jobs Act. One or two people clapped. “You can go ahead and clap,” the president said. “Go ahead, nothing wrong with it.”

Nobody else clapped, or likely even wanted to, because listening to Obama is like expecting an answer from an answering machine.

Obama likes playing president, but what he really wanted was a paycheck, a cool house for parties, and an unlimited taxpayer-funded vacation package. Being a good president is hard; being an incompetent president is even harder. Obama is so skilled at incompetence, he makes it look easy.

Don’t think for a second that the lack of adoring sycophants will stop Obama from wanting four more years of the perks and the added bonus of tormenting old-school Americans. Thankfully his arrogance and undying support of an insane dogma are the reasons he won’t be reelected. America understands how close to the edge of O-blivion we are. By election time, Obama will be alone in his circus tent, the press not even covering his concession speech.
