Of Hypocrisy, Arrogance, and Mendacity; Open Thread


© Miri WTPOTUS 2011

Hypocrisy, thy name is Obama.

 Drudge is reporting that in today’s presser, President Barack Hussein Obama II criticized Congress for taking vacations during this debt crisis.   (Warning, don’t stay there too long or you’ll hear his annoying voice, comparing Congress to his own school-aged children, in one of his usual, finger-wagging, preachy anecdotes/metaphors, as if Congress has “homework” that he assigns.  Talk about respect for co-equal branches of government.  Somebody ought to remind Obama that the Founders considered Congress the most important of these co-equal branches, because they represent We the People, who in this Republic RULE, not the POTUS.)

Obama, according to that Politico story,

took some shots at the Congressional calendar that leaves lawmakers ample time to leave Washington and return to their home states and districts.

Where they have jobs to do–getting in touch with their constituents, not flying off to Hawaii for a round of golf.

Obama telegraphed, Eddie Haskell smirk on his face, that he will try to keep them in session and ruin their vacations, if possible (in essence, keeping them after school):

[I]f by the end of this week we have not seen substantial progress then I think members of Congress need to understand we’re going to have to start cancelling things and stay here until we get it done. They’re in one week. They’re out one week. And then they’re saying Obama’s got to step in – you need to be here, I’ve been here, I’ve been doing Afghanistan, bin Laden, and the Greek crisis. You stay here. Let’s get it done.

Oh, we see how hard Obama’s been working! 

He’s  been “doing Afghanistan?”  Surely he must have meant our brave troops.  What has he done, on the day after the Taliban staged a brazen attack on a hotel in Kabul, in a show of force to prove they’re ready and waiting when our troops go home prematurely?  Will he lose the victory they’ve forged?  Will the women of Afghanistan go back into their Taliban-imposed chains? 

He’s been doing “Bin Laden?”  Again, surely he must have meant our brave Navy SEALs.  Wasn’t he called into the situation room off the golf course? 

He’s been doing the Greek crisis?  What has he done?  Help foment riots?  I’m only half joking.  SEIU and ACORN have international affiliates.  Failed socialism is a root cause of this rioting. Obama wants a European-style socialist state for America (fundamental transformation).  Just ask Joe the Plumber. 

Arrogance, thy name is Obama. 

Obama also had choice words about what the American people “NEED TO UNDERSTAND.”  Got that? We’re stupid. We NEED to UNDERSTAND what he, in all of HIS omnipotent wisdom, understands.  That’s our problem. We’re stupid.  How can Obama, godlike, possibly think we could ever grok what he KNOWS?  But the Lecturer in Chief will try to condescend and talk down low enough to get through our stupidity. 

Wait!  What?  He’s planning his  OWN vacation (and probably his 76th game of golf soon, if not today).  They’re going to Martha’s Vineyard in August!  Don’t forget that Michelle Obama, the kids, their cousins, and the “friends of FLOTUS” just got back from safari in Africa–a trip that set the taxpayers back, during this debt crisis, by nearly $1 million.  The artificial deadline for raising the debt ceiling is August 2.  Just in time for the Obamas to take off for Martha’s Vineyard. 

Listen up, Children (and that includes you, Congress): DO AS WE SAY, NOT AS WE DO. 

Matthew Jaffe wrote on Politico that the press “corpse” laughed along with Obama; but something tells me that at least some of them must have been squirming at his tone and his smirk.   (My mamma would say, “Wipe that smirk off your face!”)  When will they sicken enough of this arrogant, tin-pot dictator wannabe and start asking the hard questions?

Isn’t this the SAME GUY who ridiculed McCain for going back to DC during the crash of 2008, while he blithely and coolly stayed on the campaign trail?  Isn’t this the same press who ridiculed McCain for doing the same (leaving the campaign trail to return to DC)? 

Mendacity, thy name is Obama.

In the presser, he said that what he’s done in Libya does not violate the War Powers Resolution.  No?  Why not?  Because it all depends upon what the meaning of “hostilities” is. Apparently, it doesn’t mean lobbing missiles into another country without Congress declaring war.

This is an open thread.  Feel free to weigh in on any topic.

  1. The more things “change,” the more they remain the same. A leopard doesn’t change his spots.

  2. Score one for the man upstairs!

  3. Is Glenn Beck headed for the Lone Star State? Ex Fox news host set to rent 7-bed Dallas mansion for $20,000 a month

    I think this house is out in one of the suburbs. “As well as multiple bedrooms Beck can also look forward to seven-and-a-half bathrooms, two-acres of land.” Homes in Dallas aren’t on two acres that I know of. Most likely, Willow Bend area. The heat will get them first!

  4. Obama’s Radical Pal Rashid Khalidi Releases Pro-Hamas Video Urging Obama’s Support of Gaza Flotilla II
    Sunday, July 3, 2011 Snips

    Yesterday, Rashid Khalidi, Noam Chomsky, Ali Abunimah and others released a video urging the Obama Administration to free Gaza and allow bombs to be imported by the Hamas terror group.

    Rashid Khalidi: This is an inhuman seige of a million and a half people who are cut off from the outside world… The policy of a president who started off by saying that he was going to offer a new beginning as far as dealing with the Palestine issue has been almost indistinguishable from the policy of his predecessors. The noted leftists in his video talk about why “The Audacity of Hope” is one of the most crucial campaigns of our time.

    Barack Obama has already reached out to the Taliban and Muslim Brotherhood. Now these ignorant leftist clowns want him to pamper Hamas too. They will never be satisfied until Israel is obliterated off the face of the Earth. (Someone needs to make a video of Hamas bombs blowing up in the background after each speaker!)


      • should be named Audacity of Community Organizers. Man for the first time , I wish the world was flat. At least all the dear Marxist ,Peace niks are all showing themselves.It has been known for how long these people were doing this, why no intervention before now? Should be against US law . I wish they were all arrested. Let em have a sit in in PRison ,or a food fast in prison,for a real long long time.

  5. Mexican citizen, Garcia, is convicted of raping and killing a 16 year old girl. Now the Federal Government is getting involved again…not only the Feds but the UN want Texas to commute Leal’s sentence (execution on the calendar for Thursday). They want clemency for this guy whose bite marks were found on the girl who was beaten, raped, and left on the side of the road with a pole through her body.
    Obama administration is politicizing this case. What this really is about is capital punishment and not on whether the criminal got a fair trial.

    Obama Administration seeks to halt Texas execution of Mexican national, Humberto Leal Garcia

    U.S. authorities want to delay Humberto Leal Garcia’s execution –scheduled for Thursday — for up to six months to give Congress time to consider legislation that would directly affect his case.
    The legislation would allow federal courts to review cases of condemned foreign nationals.

    The federal government rarely intervenes in state death penalty cases.[UNTIL OBAMA]

    The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay has also appealed to Texas Gov. Rick Perry to call off the lethal injection.
