Just a quick thought on the over exposure of Obama by the media ( I suspect the handlers are more than happy ) to keep him in front of cameras.

Not sure that we need to hear about his dinner date in NYC , his daughter's new dog , dinner in Chicago the Network Special " A Day In The Life ".
Being but a mere mortal it seems to me that given the issues that he is facing he would be hunkered down , burning the midnight oil or something a little more productive than making sure that he is front and centre each day.
Perhaps....the campaigning for the next election has started?

Couldn't agree more. Today listening to sports radio I hear he picked the Lakers in 6. Just shut the hell up Barry ! On that NBC special (no surprise it was NBC) he patted himself on the back because he "has so much on his plate" and is dealing with all of it. What the hell job did he think he was campaigning for ?

I am just happy to have a president that can speak an intelligible form of English.

Jun 5, 2009 9:51 am

No, his telepromtor can speak an intelligible form of English.  You have heard him speak without that thing, right? 

 
Just like pretty much everything else in our society we have turned the POTUS into a celebrity.  It makes my stomach churn to think that he's spending my tax dollars on Broadway shows, limos, weekly parties, etc.  At least it's not cigars. 
 
His handlers like it because "the people" see him as human, just like Britney, Ashton, or Jessica and think that he lives a normal life, just like them.  See, he has a new puppy.  Aren't his girls cute playing on that swingset.  See, he goes on dates with his wife. 
 
All the while our country is taking one more step towards Marxism with each day the man is in office.  Mid term elections can't get here soon enough.
 
As far as George Bush and his English speaking skills, the only reason you know he has those idiosyncrasies is that everytime it happened the media would blast him on it.  When was the last time you saw the Today Show or MSNBC or one of the other White House mouthpieces show you Barack speaking without the TOTUS?  That man stumbles and stutters non stop if it's not written down for him.

Everytime he's on tv my wife and I say "There's Hollywood".  I think Matt Lauer gets a woody everytime Obama's name is mentioned.  It actually scares me to death thinking about what this fraud is about and what he is trying to do. I will post something I received from my accountant the other day.

  HOW LONG DO WE HAVE?                                                      
                                                                                                                               
                                                                            
                                                                            
                  This is the most interesting thing I've read in a long   
                   time. The sad thing about it, you can see it coming.     
                                                                                                                                          
                                                                            
                                                                            
                                                                            
                 I have always heard about this democracy countdown. It is 
                 interesting to see it in print. God help us, not that we  
                                        deserve it.                         
                                                                                                                                       
                                                                            
                                                                            
                                                                            
                                   How Long Do We Have?                     
                                                                            
                                                                            
                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                       
                 About the time our original thirteen states adopted their 
                   new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish   
                history professor at the    University   of   Edinburgh   ,
                had this to say about the fall of the  Athenian   Republic 
                                 some 2,000 years earlier:                 
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                   'A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply   
                     cannot exist as a permanent form of government.'      
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                'A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that 
                  voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts  
                                from the public treasury.'                 
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
     From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who  
   promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that
   every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which 
                    is always followed by a dictatorship.'                 
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                'The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from
                    the beginning of history, has been about 200 years'    
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                 'During those 200 years, those nations always progressed  
                              through the following sequence:              
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                            1. from bondage to spiritual faith;            
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                         2. from spiritual faith to great courage;

                               4. from liberty to abundance;               
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                             5. from abundance to complacency;

                Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline UniversitySchool of Law, 
                  St. Paul  ,    Minnesota  , points out some interesting  
                     facts concerning the 2000  Presidential election:     
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                  Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29   
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                      Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000      
                                  Republicans: 2,427,000                   
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                   Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million   
                                 Republicans: 143 million                  
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                   Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:   
                             Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1              
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                    Professor Olson adds: 'In aggregate, the map of the    
                 territory Republican won was mostly the land owned by the 
                    taxpaying citizens of this great country. Democrat     
                   territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in   
                government-owned tenements and living off various forms of 
                 government welfare...' Olson believes the   United States 
                is now somewhere between the 'complacency and apathy' phase
                  of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some  
                 forty percent of the nation's population already  ;having 
                       reached the 'governmental dependency' phase.        
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                   If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty    
                 million criminal invaders called illegal's and they vote, 
                then we can say goodbye to the     USA   in fewer than five
                                          years.

Wow that scares me to death. If that is true how the hell are we to give long term financial advice ? Depressing.

Marx would be proud of Obama.

It's a deliberate strategy to keep the pace so frenetic that people can't keep up with what's going on.
Monday, nationalize GM, Tuesday propose goverment run health care, Wednesday nominate the Wise Latina, Thursday speak to fellow Muslims, Friday have surrogates say the economy is improving despite worsening unemployment  --- ALL of this stuff is outrageous, but by Friday we're so busy absorbing the latest dangerous idea that we've almost forgotten all the other outrages.
The positive thing if you oppose him is that once he's thrown off track, all these initatiives will pile up in a train wreck that will bring him down. At least I hope so.

Okay...not just me. I got up this morning to go to the office do get some work done ( Yes , Mr. President ) I do go in on Saturdays. Turn on the Tube and her ewe go ....LIVE FROM FRANCE. He and new best buddy the French President....the two wifes competing with each other for the Best Fashion Statement......enough PLEASE!!!!

The other evening ...a clip for The Tonight Show with Obama giving his thumbs up for the new host.
To Spiff.....right on the money ( oopps they are still printing more ) check him out without the teleprompter.
Given the pace here....World Peace , Ending of Poverty and the Cure for Everything must be just around the corner.
Maybe just me but is this not the pattern from his early days in politics?

Lets say our country becomes 75% apathy and 25% liberty (right now I believe its about 55% /45%) I am more than confident those that care about liberty and who go to work each day to provide a better life for their families, although out numbered, would still win in a civil war.
