Maureen Dowd finally realizes that Barack Obama is a Monumental Disphit.
Now, if you've lost MoDo, it's only a matter of time before the other rats at the New York Times (that means you Tom "I lost on Jeopardy!" Friedman, and you Paul "Never Met a Communist I Wouldn't Tongue Kiss" Krugman) start leaving the Obama Titanic Team, although I'm perfectly certain they all have already penned elegant, and convoluted in a way that only makes sense to another Libtard, exit opus to cover their behinds.
I'll bet they've had those sitting in the filing cabinet since about, oh...January 20th, 2009.
Now, the thing that strikes me as curious about Mo's latest pile of dogsqueeze is how many people are quoted in it as saying, more or less, the following:
Socialism is still a good thing, it's just that Barack Obama is/was the wrong kind of socialist. In fact, Barack Obama has been the entirely wrong sort of socialist, and if it weren't for the fact that we democrats in the press are complete, screaming retards, we would have noticed that way before we helped to elect him, and then defended him for the last 3-and-half years.
This sort of thing comes out in some of the quotes in Dowd's piece. These are the kinds of things you say about your retarded cousin, or the stroke-paralyzed aunt you keep hidden in your attic. Sort of like, "he's not of much use, but boy, no one can drool like he does!". I offer as proof, this little gem from Ed Rendell, Governor of Pennsylvania, quoted in this passage:
"In his new book, "A Nation of Wusses", the Democrat Ed Rendell, the former governor of Pennsylvania, wonders how the "the best communicator in campaign history" lost his touch.
The legendary speaker who drew campaign crowds in the tens of thousands and inspired a dispirited nation ended up nonchalantly delegating to a pork-happy Congress, disdaining the bully pulpit, neglecting to do any L.B.J-style grunt work with Congress and the American public, and ceding control of his narrative.
As President, Obama has never felt the need to explain or sell his signature pieces of legislation -- the Stimulus and health care bills -- or staunch the flow of false information from the other side.
"The Administration lost the communications war with disastrous consequences that played out on Election Day 2010," Rendell writes, and Obama never got credit for the two pieces of legislation where he reached for greatness.The President had lofty dreams of playing the great convener and conciliator. But at a fund-raiser in Minneapolis, he admitted he's just another combatant in a capital full of Hatfields and McCoys. No compromises, just nihilism.
If he wins the election, "the fever may break," he said. "My hope, my expectation, is that after the election, now that it turns out that the goal of beating Obama doesn't make much sense because I'm not running again, that we can start getting some cooperation again."
The people of Pennsylvania must be so proud, knowing they once elected a complete idiot to be their governor. "Greatest Communicator in Campaign History?" Was Rendell listening to the same speeches that I was -- speeches written by other people and fed to Obama via sixteen teleprompters -- that mentioned nothing but lofty ideals and not a solitary thing related to physical reality? Obama's failures are because he didn't get cooperation? News flash, Governor: there's a reason why there's two and not ONE political party in this country, and it is not the duty of one to give the other all it wants, no questions asked. After all, this is a Republic, which you people seem to keep forgetting.
Did Rendell not hear how Obama promised to lower the sea levels, put gas in everyone's car, power the entire galaxy on three windmills, withdraw America from unpopular wars, close Guantanamo Bay, get the Chinese, Russians North Koreans and Iranians to gosh-darn love us, give everyone free medical care without it costing us a red cent, and to create so many jobs we'd have to continue importing Mexicans just to make sure we had people reading the want ads?
Of course, according to a died-in-the-wool Libtard like Rendell, the problem isn't bad policy, nor the man who advances it; it's simply a case of miscommunication. Like I've said, Pennsylvania, hope you're happy with this dipshit at the helm of your state. About the only things Barack Obama has been good at, despite Rendell's Greatest Communicator in Campaign History's inability to suddenly...you know...communicate...once he becomes President are to make money disappear, go on vacation, and talk out of both sides of his mouth and his rectum, simultaneously.
Another Liberal Moron, this one writing an Obama Biography (this is like, what? The 7th or 8th Obama Biography, already?), describes his Obama experience, via a secondary source, thus:
“..David Maraniss writes that a roommate of the young Obama compared him to Walker Percy’s protagonist in “The Moviegoer”: an observer of his life, one step removed.”
I'm certain this makes sense at the Upper East Side cocktail parties Maraniss hopes to attend, but it does have the effect -- perhaps desired now that he's blown the dream of Socialist Utopia for another generation -- of making Obama sound phony and hollow. Which, come to think of it, he always has been to anyone who was listening for the last 4 years. It;'s only now that they're finally coming around to holding the opinions of those folks in Flyover Country, you know, the other people they all despise.
Anyway, this Maraniss character goes on to speak of something I've mentioned often on this page, but no one ever believed me, about the whole Authentically Black phenomenon and Barack Obama:
Maraniss’s book depicts Obama on an intense odyssey of self-discovery, moving toward defining himself less as a half-white man with white girlfriends than as a black man who wanted to be part of a black community.
His New York girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, told Maraniss that Obama confessed to her that “he felt like an impostor. Because he was so white. There was hardly a black bone in his body.” When she predicted that his future might be with a black woman — “That lithe, bubbly, strong black lady is waiting somewhere!” she wrote in her journal — he told her “he doubted there were any black women he would feel truly comfortable with. I would tell him, ‘No, she is out there.’ ”
He wanted to get out of the corporate world he found so distasteful — he described himself as “a spy behind enemy lines” — and reimagine himself as a politician.”
In other words, Barack Obama has always been a fucking phony, professional fence-straddler, who turns the Black on and off as he needs to. This explains the 9,000,000 "Present" votes, and the seeming eagerness to attack opponents for political cowardice while hiding behind a hands-off policy.
Barack Obama was elected President of the United States by a Coalition of the Stupid, Lazy, Panicked, and the Professionally Poverty-Stricken, paid for by the irrationally-guilty-rich, all cheered on by a generation of media figures -- Dowd included -- who saw in Obama what they initially saw, also, in Bill Clinton: someone who still spoke the same language of their 1960's Utopia hippie days.
Now, as always, disappointed when reality finally sets in -- they chose the wrong man, the wrong policies, at the wrong time in history -- they begin to damn the object of their former affection with faint praise, and backhanded insults. The discontent and disappointment that most true libtards feel these days are simply the hangover one should expect when one drinks in the Cult of Personality, only to discover what they've always known, deep inside, all along: that the object of their affections has no damned personality at all.
Barack Obama is simply the mask that Barry Soetoro wears in front of the rest of the world. He never existed, except in the imaginations of people like Dowd and the brain-dead legions who think like she does. Come January, 2013, Barack Obama will very quickly fade into a well-deserved obscurity, and become little more than a curiosity that future generations of historians will study, if only to discover how it is that that many people can all lose their collective minds at the same time.
Don't be surprised if in the near future the Obama name isn't attached to a newly-discovered mental disorder.
