WAIT A MINUTE – WASN’T IT SUPPOSED TO BE A THREE-YEAR PROJECT?
Something tells me ‘restoring America’ would be a 12-year project if presidents were able to serve 3 terms. Or a 16-year project if four terms were allowable. Or even a lifetime project if presidents were kings – vs. pretending to be one.
Yes, America; Barack Hussein Obama told a small wealthy group of Obamanites at an Atlanta fundraiser last week that restoring the U.S. economy and America’s status in the world is an eight-year project, not a three-year project, and that he needs their help if he is to win the White House again this November. What a shock: eight years – on the nose.
“This is not a three-year project, this is an eight-year project. So I need you one more time. And we’re confident we can get there, but we’re going to need your help.”
Gee, I wonder where the reference to three years came from? That seems a bit random; I mean…wait a minute…I remember now; this is what O told us during the first year of his presidency:
“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s gonna be a one-term proposition.”
Oh, hell yeah. He said it – clear as day. He even added: “Look, I’m at the start of my administration. One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable. You know, I’ve got four years.” Obviously, O doesn’t find his situation so “nice” anymore – not to mention that whole accountability thing, huh?
The simple question for O is this: Why did you originally tell us it was a three year job, only to change it to eight now?
And the simple – official answer – from O is this: “Because ‘we’ didn’t realize how really bad things were.” And of course the response is: “Bull crap, O – you’re only telling us it’s now an eight-year project because of your desperation to be reelected.” You’re also banking on the stupidity of the majority of the people who voted for you to be stupid one more time, aren’t you?
Only fools should be surprised by the reversals and obfuscations of President Flip-Flop. After all, this is a guy who said in 2008, “Under my plan, energy prices would necessarily skyrocket,” only to change it to “I’m going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas; both right now, and in the future,” less than four years later – as the real possibility of defeat has settled in.
It’s just like Reverend Jeremiah Wright says, O: Your “chickens are coming home to roost.”
Not to be discomfited, O’s remains astonishing arrogant. The faux honesty and confidence with which he tells adoring crowd after adoring crowd that he really didn’t mean what he said the first time – or that he misjudged reality – only to break out the Obama two-step and change course is hysterical. Equally hysterical is how the Kool-Aid drinking Obamanites dutifully smile and cheer their hero – never questioning the veracity of the community organizer from Chicago. This is the stuff of which cults are born, America.
No speech from His Excellency would be complete without the O-man patting himself on the back in delusional fits of self-congratulatory grandeur. Speaking in the opulent home of Tyler Perry, O bragged on O a bit – praising everything from ObamaCare, (which is headed to the Supreme Court in a challenge to its constitutionality), to the Regime’s efforts to bring improvements to education.
O also said – again, at his delusional best – that he has strengthened international alliances and respect for America by ending one war and beginning to transition out of another war in Afghanistan. (How’s that workin’ out so far, O?)
“And Osama bin Laden is not around,” he glowed, perhaps looking back wistfully at the “I Killed Osama Bin Laden” Victory Tour. The O-man is a piece of work: Sorry I haven’t fixed the economy, folks – I was too busy killing Osama bin Laden.
In addition to thanking Perry and other Atalanta-area supporters, O also thanked Oprah Winfrey for her ability to draw other supporters to his 2008 campaign: “And just like books and skin cream, when Oprah decides she likes you, then other people like you, too,” he said.
The O-man spoke to 40 people who paid $35,800 a head to attend the event at Perry’s house, raising $1.4 million in the process. Earlier in the day, he spoke at another private residence to 75 people who each paid $10,000 to attend.
Obamapalooza 2.0 is a thing of beauty, America. Too bad presidents can’t be kings.
Where would the O-man be if there hadn’t been a George Bush or an Osama bin Laden to kick around?
