Bloviating Zeppelin: Obama Backs Down

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Obama Backs Down


And John Boehner shows a bit of spine, at least for a few moments.

The story:

Barack Hussein Obama wanted to address a joint session of Congress this coming Wednesday, September 7th. Oddly enough, that was specifically the same day that there was a previously-scheduled GOP presidential debate.

As a result, Speaker Boehner said there were logistical and parliamentary problems and the date wasn't feasible. There were words back and forth. The words "pro forma" and "normal" and "customary" were bantered about. The word "unprecedented" as well.

Despite all, Boehner somehow prevailed. Obama re-scheduled his address for the next day, Thursday the 8th. Of course, this pissed off NFL interests because that is the NFL season opener (Green Bay vs New Orleans). However, networks have already said if the president goes long, they will cut away. "Are you ready for some TelePrompter?" Or is this just a "run of bad luck"?

As a result (you would expect no less from this network), MSNBC correspondent Richard Wolffe said on "The Last Word":

The interesting question is: What is it about this president that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the Office of the President? Why do Republicans think this president is unpresidential and should dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008 or it could be, let's face it, the color of his skin. This is an extraordinary reaction to a normal sequence of events."

That is to say: any obstruction to Mr Obama must be, per se, racist in nature foundationally.

Let me be blunt, if I may, in response:

Mr Obama was elected because of the perceived color of his skin (He's only half black -- but, depending upon his audience, he can go total verbal "ghetto" when he wishes to pander). GOWPs voted for Mr Obama because of his melanin count. The vote for Mr Obama was primarily a vote against Bush, not a vote for a man whose background was mostly ignored by the purposely-ignorant DEM/MSM.

Because of his melanin-count. Specifically and truly. And, further, because he could be slipped in as a contender and not offend the Bulk Of Yokels. He didn't have the dark purple/black skin color. He didn't have the wide, flat nose. He didn't have the expansive lips. He could, in other words, "pass" and not be fundamentally offensive to the American electorate. To those who voted due to looks and not beliefs or philosophy or history. He was, in fact, the Magic Negro.

And so, when facts won't work, when background won't work, when experience won't work, when history won't work, when policy and philosophy won't work --

Why, you simply play the Race Card.

Boring.

And America may, perhaps, be starting to actually "clue in."

So on Thursday, who's stupid enough to actually watch Mr Obama vs the NFL opener?

That's right: about a hundred ignorant people.

Me?

I'm rooting for Green Bay. Go, Pack!

P.S.
Demorats actually trying to distance themselves from The One??

Let's see....A year ago, Obama would have gotten the slot he wanted. No problem with a Democratic House.

I know that many people complain about Boehner. I don't. I see him as carefully and cunningly undercutting Obama -- carefully because of the race card crap.

Anyway, Obama came out as looking like a weak President with this speech change.

Meanwhile, I read that Obama is "frustrated" and exhausted, so he's off to Camp David this weekend -- after just returning from Martha's Vineyard. This present escape to Camp David also makes him look like nothing but a party boy.
