Aimless Obama walks alone

by Michael Goodwin
The reports are not good, disturbing even. I have heard basically the same story four times in the last 10 days, and the people doing the talking are in New York and Washington and are spread across the political spectrum.
The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist.
Everybody else, including members of his Cabinet, have little face time with him except for brief meetings that serve as photo ops. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner both have complained, according to people who have talked to them, that they are shut out of important decisions.
The president’s workdays are said to end early, often at 4 p.m. He usually has dinner in the family residence with his wife and daughters, then retreats to a private office. One person said he takes a stack of briefing books. Others aren’t sure what he does.
If the reports are accurate, and I believe they are, they paint a picture of an isolated man trapped in a collapsing presidency. While there is no indication Obama is walking the halls of the White House late at night, talking to the portraits of former presidents, as Richard Nixon did during Watergate, the reports help explain his odd public remarks.

You're killing me...hahahhah

I just finished up a post about the same story...

This comment is from the article, it's excellent:

Well.. laa dee dah.. you are just figuring out that giving the job of president to a man who has never, ever, in his entire affirmative action life had a job might not work out? President Barry of Kenya has never dealt with a budget, any budget. He hasn't even had so much as a paper route. He got into colleges he never was qualified to enter, through the use of affirmative action, lying on applications that he was American, then telling the truth on other applications that he was born in Kenya. He never had a job. He didn't work in the cafeteria, or cut lawns, or save lives as a lifeguard, such as Ronald Reagan did. He didn't work in a grocery like Nixon. He was not a farmer like Carter. He never owned haberdashery like Truman. He is a product of the "I deserve it because.. " school of thinking. Look what it has produced, the worst president in the history of the Republic. The man is not fit to be in his own cabinet.

Just like the Soviet Bear, I feel that BO may get more dagerous when cornered and poked with a stick.

Obama is on the verge of *snapping*, possibly that vein in his temple that's always pulsing and will rupture, America wins, OR, he will figure out that he can rule by Executive Order, in that case, America loses...

And the GOP is offering up the damnedest field of fuck-wads since, well, since Obama kicked McCain and Northwoods Barbie in the ass..

I'm not a religious person, but GOD HELP US ALL if that Kenyan SON OF A BITCH gets re-elected..

Fucker has surpassed his Peter Principle long ago and is realizing his 'folks' are cotton to it.
His donaters are bailing, not one executive order or appointment has worked.
He's fucked and he knows it.

I'm with Skip. No way does this idiot win re-election. I"m not even sure the Republicans can fuck this up although it wouldn't be the first time they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

I have berated incompetent soldiers in the Army over the years tellin some " I wouldn't trust you to mow my fukkin yard much less to know how to change the oil in a fukkin lawnmower!" I bet Obama has never done more than change a light bulb or operate anything more complicated than toenail clippers. What useless, hapless bag of shit. I would bet he could roll a damm good joint!

Am I the only one who sees movies of Adolph during the final days of May 1945 playing in my head when reading about this stuff? Maybe if we are lucky O will get to the final scene before the Reds take full control of the capitol.

Add to the drama with O the goings-on with several of his Cabinet appointees, and the whole thing looks more and more like the last couple of chapters of the HistoryofHitler Channel's all night WWII marathon.

stay safe.
