Evidently Americans are too dumb to know that the President is always right. From Michael Goodwin, an analysis of President Obama’s political style and personality;
When President Obama started talking at his news conference Monday, I listened intently for 15 minutes or so. Then I got fidgety as his half-truths about the debt grew into full-blown whoppers. As he droned on, I did something I never did before during an Obama appearance: I turned off the TV.
There’s something to be said for the OFF button on the TV remote.
Enough. He is the Man Who Won’t Listen to Anybody, so why should anybody listen to him?
Tuning out and turning off the president does not fill me with gladness. He cannot be ignored.
Obama has more face time with the American public than Jay Leno and David Letterman combined.
I’m surprised he doesn’t clench his fists and stomp his feet like the little spoiled brat he is.
His presidency is a spectacular failure, his historic mandate squandered by adherence to leftist ideology and relentless partisanship. His policies are crushing the prospects for growth and dooming the hopes of 24 million Americans who are unemployed or working part-time.
Yet he is not going to change. He listens only to his own voice, which is why he has lost virtually his entire economic team.
“I want them here at 11 a.m. tomorrow,” Obama said sternly. “We have run out of time and they are going to have to explain to me how we’re going to avoid a default.”
Sure, Mr. President: want in one hand; your administration in the other. See which is more fragrant next Autumn, sir.
One simply does not see how this ends well for BHO. The Left has to figure out Real Soon Now whether the WamperDyne Extreme 2008 Propaganda Crapflooder that BHO rode to electoral triumph has enough mileage remaining for a repeat performance. As noted elsewhere, I think the answer is not only a firm negative, but the rest of the shenanigans of this administration are of such a stench that something like a medical retirement, or a high drama exit over the debt limit, replete with accusatory finger-waving at the GOP, seems increasingly likely.
How much dread can we have of a Biden Administration, however brief? Seriously. The state of U.S. foreign policy, like that of domestic, could best be summarized as: shambles. Biden at least affords occasional comic relief.
To paraphrase Monty Python: “Bring out your Joe! Bring out your Joe-oh!”
