Obama: The Myth Of The Master Strategist

 

 

Wile E Obama

 

 

” Often in error but never in doubt, Barack Obama could walk into the Rose Garden and step on a half-dozen rakes like Foghorn Leghorn in an old Looney Tunes cartoon, and the official line would be, “He meant to do that.”

And the amazing thing is that so many people believe it. “Mr. Obama is like a championship chess player, always several moves ahead of friend and foe alike. He’s smart, deft, elegant and subtle,” proclaimed then–New York Times columnist Bob Herbert in 2009. It’s an image of the president that his biggest fans, in and out of the press, have been terribly reluctant to relinquish — because it confirms the faith they invested in him. Nobody ever likes to admit they were suckered.

But the fiction of Obama as a man three steps ahead has taken a terrible beating if you have eyes to see it.”

 

 

 

     Jonah Goldberg does a masterful job exposing Obama’s image of the masterful strategist as the masterfully crafted media fraud that it really is . Read it and smile .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama’s Sequester Idea Backfires

 

Wile E Obama – Super Genius

 

” For the first time since Election Day, President Barack Obama is on the defensive. That’s because March 1, automatic spending cuts (“sequestration”) go into effect – $1.2 trillion over 10 years, half from domestic (discretionary) programs, half from defense.

The idea had been proposed and promoted by the White House during the July 2011 debt-ceiling negotiations. The political calculation was that such draconian defense cuts would drive the GOP to offer concessions.

It backfired. The Republicans have offered no concessions. Obama’s bluff is being called and he’s the desperate party. He abhors the domestic cuts. And as commander in chief he must worry about indiscriminate Pentagon cuts that his own defense secretary calls catastrophic.

So Tuesday, Obama urgently called on Congress to head off the sequester with a short-term fix. But instead of offering an alternative $1.2 trillion in cuts, Obama demanded a “balanced approach,” coupling any cuts with new tax increases.

What should the Republicans do? Nothing.”

Clarice Feldman has a great piece about our “super genius” Wile E Coyote president , his continual exploding cigar moments and the desperate attempts by his toadies in the media to cover his a..

   Even to the point of fabricating scandal out of whole cloth . See for example Chick-fil-A . Read the whole story .

  ” While the story contains tons of material defending traditional Christian teachings on sexuality, the controversial entrepreneur never talks about gay rights or gay marriage. Why? Because he wasn’t
asked about those issues in the interview.

   As the talented ElizabethScalia observes:

   Read Mattingly’s whole piece, wherein he addresses the whole “well, they may not have said it but it’s what they meant, so what’s the big deal?” angle.

  The big deal is simply this: the press put aside context and decided to paint this company as some radically-religious-gay-hating-entity and then let the forces of anger, hate and spite have their way with it.

   The truth is, one can be a Christian and still be sympathetic to some parts of the so-called “gay agenda” without signing on
in toto. One can disagree on the issue of gay marriage – based on scripture, or thousands of years of tradition, or on natural law  without actually hating
anyone.

   But the right to principled opposition is being erased, quickly, and the press is doing all it can to help erase it. We are losing the
right to say, “I don’t think the same way you do; my opinions are different.”

That matters, a lot.

  This is our mainstream press – the people charged with the public trust – and it has moved beyond advocacy and into “search
and destroy” mode.[/quote]

   Bear in mind that not only did the company’s CEO never discuss gay marriage with the reporter, but also there’s never been even a
suggestion that the company-known for its fine product, excellent service and outstanding
community welfare efforts and employee relations-has discriminated in any way against
gays. “

Clarice Feldman offers up a link-filled , detail-rich post examining
Wile E Coyote’s penchant for gaffe making when released from Telecaptivity and the MSM’s endless efforts at damage control that she dubs ” Boston Globing” .

   A very thoughtful read …

  “Never mind either that Obama regularly steps in it when he leaves the prepared script. Ace of Spades reminds of other times Obama has
stepped in it:

   For such a supposedly fantastic speaker, it’s sure hard to bring to mind any outstanding Obama quotes. I remember nothing from his big post-racial race.speech, his inaugural, his state of the union addresses. What I remember is
when he goes off teleprompter.

“Why can’t I just eat my waffle?”

“I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.”

“The private sector is doing fine.”

“At a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”

“The Cambridge police acted stupidly.”

“I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like
Special Olympics, or something.”

“They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”

“We’re the country that built the
Intercontinental Railroad.”

“I think when you spread the wealth
around, it’s good for everybody.”

“You didn’t build that.” “

  Now the question remains , Is Romney the roadrunner ?

  ” The clumsy and self-defeating attacks only draw attention once again to a stunning lack of competence in Obama’s campaign – and Obama’s lack of a positive agenda for re-election. With the economy sliding backwards
and after three straight disappointing jobs reports, the president cannot point to any success in his stewardship of the
US economy.

  Despite his legal victory last month on ObamaCare, his
signature legislative achievement
remains so unpopular that Obama and his surrogates want to change the subject whenever anyone asks about it. “

  ” You can tell that President Obama’s press conference statement Friday morning — “The PRIVATE SECTOR IS DOING FINE”— is a big problem for Democrats, the left, and much of the media simply because they’re spending so much time and energy denying that it is.”

Read this and visit the reason for the denial .

Blumer goes on

 
   ” Even on a percentage basis, it’s clear that the private sector, where employment is almost 4% lower than it was at peak employment, is still the biggest problem — or “drag,” if you will — of the bunch. Wait until you see what that means in terms of actual headcount: ”

  Denial is all they can do at this point . This is a George H W Bush scanner moment . Of course the press wasn’t carrying Bush Sr’s water as with our dear Wile E but these kind of numbers cannot be ignored or buried on page 23 .

   Which leaves us , the producing , wealth creating , government subsidizing , taxpaying citizens about like this …

We realize that in the past we’ve portrayed our buddy Wile E as Obama , as we will continue to do , and that this time we used him as a metaphor for US .

Our apologies …

  We are thinking though , that the above picture could also represent  (hopefully) Obama and his chances come November …

   That’s a more pleasant reality to strive towards .

  This article by Andrew Malcolm was just begging to be posted here . As regular readers know we have often referred to our illustrious “leader” as Wile E Coyote and now that appellation has made it into IBD .

  Not that we are taking credit for the original comparison , mind you , but this did present us with the opportunity to use , once again , one of our favorite graphics …

“One of the immutable rules of politics is that if you have to explain something you’ve said
publicly, the argument is already lost. “What I was trying to say was….” “
