Obama Knows No Shame

Obama has decided to accept an "invitation" to write a cover story about Haiti for the January 25th issue of Newsweek. (That's assuming he actual writes it.)

As has been evident ever since this selfish opportunist has run for the Presidency, he and his capos would not do this unless it was deemed to have a politically beneficial angle to it.

It doesn't matter that no one actually reads Newsweek anymore, let alone takes its content seriously.

But, that is not the point. It doesn't matter how many copies may be sold. The most important aspect is that this provides a platform for Obama to issue a giant press release. One that will seem personal, as opposed to his slick, sterile, robotic, tele-promted infomercials.

The reason for this isn't even to exhibit sincere concern toward Haiti. The goal will be to provide a long talking point for the Sunday talk shows and nightly pundits to discuss and analyze.

There will be a spate of manufactured fawning over this screed. The word "eloquent" will be used countless times by his media lap-dogs to describe his thoughts. "Compassionate, intellectual, and insightful" will all be used in some form or another.

Perhaps Chris Matthews will get a tingle running through his perineum this time.

Ironically, it has taken a disaster of biblical proportions to give this incompetent flop a chance to engage in a matter of foreign importance of which he may be able to contribute successfully, and not embarrass himself or this country.

You would think that if he has the inclination to write a dissertation on a foreign disaster, he would have felt the same desire to write one concerning the continued plight of the victims of Katrina. This, considering he and his party shamelessly politicized the Katrina issue to bludgeon George Bush and the Republican party during the entire time he and his Democratic cohorts campaigned.

Hell, maybe he could have put down his Cheetos and Natural Light for a few seconds during his Super Bowl shin-dig to at least acknowledge the historic ice storm which rendered Kentucky incapacitated. Well, it only resulted in about 40 deaths of some conservative hicks, with others left for weeks freezing, hungry, and destitute. He couldn't even muster up a small note written on the back of a Presidential cocktail napkin.

There is no opportunity that this self-serving, self-aggrandizing narcissist can pass up.

Haiti does not need Obama to showcase his writing talents.

America doesn't need any more evidence that Obama will stop at nothing to cover up the abject incompetence he has exhibited during his first full year in office.

What's needed is for him to exhibit a little humility.

For God's sake, Obama, for once, just stay the hell out of the way.

As has been observed by others, Newsweek is simply dropping pretenses and cutting out the middle man for it's 0bama propaganda and PR operation.
It's now the official organ (along with 90% of the other media) of the 0bama Statist regime.

GarandFan:

When the rehabilitation of Haiti flops (as it did for Bubba Clinton), Barry will merely say, "Haiti? Never met him".

As for "Newspeak Magazine", they've already lost $25 million last year. How much lower can they go this year?

The "intellectual elite" of our publishing empires haven't learned yet that exclusive pandering to a liberal political cause can have an impact on their bottom line.

Speaking of "actual wrote it", Sarah Palin's Fox News debut has been, at best, a flat-ass dud.

Ex? "Favorite founding father?"
Answer: "All of 'em."...due to their "Diversity" (sic!!!).

Granted: Roger Williams and Jean Cauvin are seperated by 20 or so geometrical degrees, but hardly diverse, viz. transubstantiation.

Palin's *Out* regarding the founders' diversity could revolve around the Freemasonry and Trinitarian questions, which, of course, would cause Palin's make-up to peel off and her hair to melt.

If President Obama has that much free time, I wish he'd "focus like a laser" on the economy. Unemployment is still around 10%, and a lot of families in the US are really hurting. I know that's going to be lower on his priority list: self-promotion will always be job one. Still, it would be nice if the average American could get a little bit of his time.

arcman Author Profile Page:

The problem with this is that Obama has yet to have ever written anything. He supposedly wrote 2 books (both of which have been proven to be ghost written), didn't write anything as editor of the Harvard Law Review; has yet to release his college thesis; and about the only other thing was a bad poem while at Columbia.

And Bryan, 4 million watching O'Reilly, and over 3 million watching Beck and Hannity, is far from a flop. If you listened to Palin's entire quote, she noted that Washington was her favorite. Not like Mika B. who cited Lincoln. Gee, he wasn't even alive yet when the founders created the Constitution.

Booosh deserved it.

Takeaway from the McClellan book "What Happened":

Rove insisted that W overfly New Orleans for photo-op sessions.

Salient, bizarre fact:

Cruising altitude was set at 2000 feet (NOT 20,000 OR 12,000....but TWO thousand feet).

Flight schedule was: encircle area: 45 minutes.

SO! Drowning Negroes buzzed by cross-eyed "cowboy" (and twits) in 747 @ 2000 ft. for nearly an HOUR!

Bush deserted from service in the Alabama Air Natioanl Guard for a net loss to the US taxpayers in excess of $1,000,000, besides the criminal implications to himself (ameliorated by the actions of US Representive (and future CIA chief GHWBush).

As president-elect, GW Bush appointed as VP employment headhunter, fellow armed service avoider and 5-time draft-deferrer, Dick Cheney, who promptly appointed himself as VP, of which Ricky GW Retardo Bush approved.

Upon assumption of office, and at Cheney request, executive action was bisected with "Boss"(sic) GW assuming a socialist domestic agenda of dumbing-down students and regularizing the illegal Mexican influx, while Dick assumed the money bit controlling intelligence and military spending, projection, and application.

It basically continued in this vein for 8 years; Cheney (a cowardly yet devious admin rat) backed up by fellow career admin-rats Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Libby, and Feith...

Or maybe something to do with the conflict among Hamilton, Adams, and Jefferson as to the legislative power versus the executive. I'd like to see how Barry S. would answer this question without Mr. Teleprompter helping out. Hard to see how that relates to this thread, but keep swinging, bryanDolt.

Hamilton made some waves in 1779(?) regarding a supra-commonwealth/state tax.

Like I said: Palin's answer (post-twisted arm by Beck) was "all of 'em!"....and finally "George Washington"...who even the aborigines of east patagonia know.

I believe you. I have heard a lot about that storm since moving here last year. I think some people has not power for longer than two weeks. It was really terrible from what people here have told me. Kentucky has been a pretty marginalized state for a long time, and the poorest people are the ones who really pay for it.

I am not sure if I would specifically blame the current administration for how KY is treated, since the state has been a low priority for a long time in the US overall (in both Republican and Democrat controlled admins).

Jack Reylan:

If securities rules applied to federal research grants, half the professors would be in jail! Obama's constituencies are universities, lawyers and unions. The universities are in it for the grants. Any Republican that votes money for universities is a traitor.

UPI June 6, 1992 Sovern took over at Columbia after student protests of 1968 and New York's fiscal problems in the '70s resulted in less financial support for the school, a situation made more dire by recent federal government budget cuts. . . But Columbia will be looking for a new president in a period troubled by criticism for destroying records that were being reviewed for improprieties. Universities in general have been under greater scrutiny for how they charge the government for federally sponsored research.

They love third world students because they don't expect the professors to work for the tuition! Surely You Are Joking Feynman p 215 "If I ask you a question during the lecture, afterwards everybody will be telling me, 'What are you wasting our time for in the class? We're trying to learn something. And you're stopping him by asking a question'."

When Obama falls in 2010, we should go through the grant-grubbing Ivy Leagues that produce commie-nutty organizers with a flame thrower! Ivy League universities are not good at getting students jobs, only grants to be commie nutty organizers. If you are liberal, anything you do is inherently ethical for the cause, but if you are a conservative, and believe in GOD, family or business, your very moral fiber, even down to trivial autonomic responses, is subject to persecution as either dangerously criminal or the result of clinical illness. Bush 43 had two Ivy degrees and they treated him as stupid because he was conservative even though he had better grades and entrance scores and took a lot tougher courses than Gore. Professors are the ultimate molestor high priests because they extort and control your transcripts and your grants if you turn them in. Like a cult, they will make your children denounce you and everything you stand for as unworthy. The lowest level university bureaucrats actually suffer the worst affectations and are likey to be the most vicious persecutors of your children. No business ever trusts such left wing graduates who don't believe in capitalism and become crooks because they are taught the only way business makes money is crooked so they seek to avenge their unemployability through their own crookedness. The universities consider real jobs and competition beneath them, so they want their little sissies to live off grants, even in the hard sciences or business. How many of their engineering professors have Professional Engineering certification? Almost none! They love foreign students because they slave up and don't expect professors to actually work for the tuition, like American students do. No middle class parent should consider sending their kids there, because these schools will destroy your entire family. The only schools that understand middle-class values are for-profits. Middle class parents foolish enough to buy into the Ivy League dream die way too young.
