THE PROBLEM WITH OBAMA IS OBAMA
The problem WITH Obama is the same as the problem FOR Obama. Every air breathing American knows that politicians lie and grossly exaggerate their abilities. But I guess for me this political "told you so" bitch bite is more satisfying than any payback in American political history. Let me recap the beginning of the end.
Obama strolls onto the American political scene as a believable, marketable and charismatic figure. He played up his Harvard degree like it was manna from brain heaven and strolled around like he was a freaking polly sci-fi Einstein. His ability to articulate was his meal ticket to political clout and his newness gave him instant COOL-MAN popularity. Few in America can be "fans" of the good old boys of Washington, but being a fan of an up and coming historical figure is something to write home and scream in stadiums about. Obama became cooler than Snoop Dog and marketed himself as the superior problem solver to not just George W. Bush, but existentially superior to the entire Washington DC establishment. Not only was Obama going to woo us with his poetic diatribe, but his brain circumference was supposed to gracefully engineer us out of the mess he claimed George his inferior predecessor, got us into. He made himself the Moses who was going to lead us out of Bush and GOP bondage. We had been enslaved to dumbness and Obama rode in on his high IQ'd donkey to save our asses. Barack bloviated, lectured and opined about the ignorant stupidity of George, Dick and Condi. Barry brilliance would have us out of Iraq and Afghanistan within months and yes, Barry is used as an adjective right there for brilliance. BHO's nuance and creativity would create millions of jobs and after that the economy would flourish because of his magnificent abilities.
Other countries could now love America knowing we embraced such fantastic intellectualism. Academia approved of Obama as only elitists can. Foreign nations would see us as a new America, cried Obama! With an Obama President America is now seen as tolerant and modern, looking to Europe for idealism and imagination instead of exuding the arrogance and imperialism of a Bush America. The United States will finally escape nationalism and embrace globalism, and in Obama we trust.
We were promised a problem free America ruled with brilliance. O-moses and his degrees were going to sprint, not walk, us out of the red sea of dismay and so far I am not impressed.
Where are we? Can you say big huge mess? So much for being smarter and better at being President than your ritard predecessor. I mean, everybody knows Rainman nearly bankrupted an entire casino and he was a ritard. You can't even run the country with your Harvard friggin degree. Nice going O. The problem with you is your mouth. You played yourself up, bragged, spit on George, blamed George, promised the impossible, spoke in sentences that were way too long and hyped, hyped and hyped. This is your problem: The very thing that got you elected in 08 is the very thing that will un-elect you in 2012. Your feet were too big to fit in your own shoes. George's shoes are too big for you. What you are sadly finding out is that when you are President there are things that are beyond your control. That little nugget doesn't matter to us, you told us there was nothing beyond your control. You told us that lengthy discussion in decision making was best. That precious pebble doesn't matter either, it took you too long to make a decision and act and now you look like a nincompoop. You told us your ideas and plans would send us into Utopian America. That priceless kernel doesn't matter, we are in economic hell, still. It doesn't matter to us that you shit on Bush any chance you got....now it's your turn. We are waiting Mr. President. Please bring it or go home. I AM OUT.
