Talk about an all-out Obama boot-licker. This guy takes the cake.
I’m, of course, talking about Jack Cafferty. Here’s his latest opinion column where he praises Obama’s “leadership”:
Obama a leader who actually leads
What a welcome change to feel like someone is running the country instead of running it into the ground.
President Obama has done more in eight weeks than George W. Bush did in eight years — unless you include starting a couple of wars.
Yes. Many people look to trillion-dollar deficits, skyrocketing unemployment, bail-out fraud, the near-collapse of the domestic auto industry, and a tanking stock market all as signs of “success”.
Gosh! You’re so observant!
While the armchair quarterbacks second guess the new president, he gets up every day and does things, lots of things.
Whether it’s creating commissions for women and girls, ordering the investigation of President Bush’s use of signing statements, or jamming a huge stimulus package through Congress, the man is working his tail off. And he seems to be loving every minute of it. It’s almost as though our president was born to do exactly what he’s doing. He’s leading, and boy, is that refreshing.
I’m sure all of those things will re-employ the MILLIONS of people who are now unemployed as a consequence of Obama’s economic plan.
Lenin was a leader too. So were Hitler, Stalin, and Castro.
I remember many times when Bush was in office wondering who the hell was running the country. Then he would appear somewhere in front of a handpicked audience to utter some banalities or say something utterly stupid and I would be reminded. I don’t miss him.
Obama doesn’t have to hand-pick his audience. They’re all slavish idiots such as yourself, and his answers all come from his trusty teleprompter.
And the teleprompter is the brains of the operation, I assure you.
What’s even scarier is that the guy waiting in the wings – Joe Biden – makes Barack Obama look like frickin’ Einstein.
That’s not to say President Obama hasn’t stubbed his toe here and there. Signing that omnibus spending bill with all those earmarks in it after campaigning so hard against pork was probably a mistake. The opportunity was right there to send that bill back to Congress with a note that read, “I told you I am against earmarks and I meant it. Now do it over and send me something clean.” Nancy Pelosi’s head would have probably exploded, but the American people would have been ready to crown him king.
There are serious questions about whether Tim Geithner has what it takes to solve the banking crisis. Either nationalize the big ones in trouble or let them fail. It doesn’t seem that just continuing to hand them money is working.
Most people wouldn’t call the stock market sinking like a stone, unemployment levels rising like a tidal wave, an inept tax-cheating head of the Treasury Department, screwing the pooch on virtually all of your campaign promises, and making George W. Bush look like a fiscal conservative stubbing one’s toe. It’s more like amputating your leg.
I’m sure you’ll have many bandages ready to keep Dear Leader from bleeding to death.
I openly hear people pining away for the Bush years.
Better background checks on some of his appointees would have saved him some embarrassment. There’s no excuse for asking someone like Tom Daschle with his problems to do anything.
Gee, ya think?!?
Lest we forget the two or three others that dropped out due to poor vetting. Not to mention how the Treasury Department’s upper echelon isn’t fully staffed because the candidates are pulling out and running away screaming from the prospect of working for Geithner.
But the point, I guess, is this: President Obama is attacking our country’s problems on several fronts. He’s got ambitious ideas on how to solve them, and he communicates a sense of calm and confidence to the rest of us as he goes about his business. Will all his ideas work? Of course not. But if you throw enough stuff at the wall, some of it will stick.
Yes, I’m sure that’ll make the American public (including the millions of them who are still unemployed) feel real confident. An economic strategy that can be compared to a booger on a finger.
Your intellect is truly daunting.
And at least I don’t go to bed at night worried that I’ll wake up in the morning to find out we’re about to invade someone.
You didn’t last time, doorknob. That is unless you call some six-frickin’-months of debate in the media and on the Senate floor an “overnight event.”
One more example of how left-wingers in the news media are probably some of the stupidest people on earth.
