You Did Tell Us A Story Barry
Oh good grief. Are you kidding me? The country is going to hell in a hand-basket specifically because of Obama’s pernicious permutation of our domestic and social policies–and during an interview with CBS News’s Charlie Rose he said: “When I think about what we’ve done well and what we haven’t done well…the mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.” (Obama: My Biggest Mistake Was Not ‘Telling a Story’ [Updated]); Michael Warren; 7/12/12)
That is the most hebephrenic mea culpa I’ve heard in my life, in and out of politics. As an excuse it borders on “the dog ate my homework.” The truth is that you did tell a story, Barry–and We the People were listening.
Your promise to “fundamentally change” our nation was the story of your plan to transmogrify our nation into that which Erebus, Lenin, and Marx would applaud, and people are awaking to that fact. We heard your story when your wife hissed through her toothy overbite that she had been ashamed of America her entire life, right up until you were elected.
You told America what amounted to a story of The Feast of Barmecide with your campaign pitch of “hope and change.” You told us the story of how you would cut the deficit in half in your first term, when the reality is that we are about to experience the fourth straight year of a trillion dollar deficit increase–even as you now tell carefully preselected crowds on the campaign trail that the “private sector is doing fine.”
It was a story of cognitive dissonance that should have resulted in your being removed from office due to your delusional state of mind.
The actions of you and your wife have been telling us stories Barry–and we’ve been watching and listening. We watched as your wife spent millions of our tax dollars on lavish vacations and then fraudulently represented your children as senior staff to either avoid paying for them or to give them salaries. We’ve watched as your wife spent $50,000 of our tax dollars on exotic underwear in one store on a New York shopping trip with the Queen of Qatar. We’ve watched the gluttonous behavior of your wife as she proposes to tell us what to eat and drink. We watched and listened when you told people who approached you with concerns about the escalating fuel prices, to get used to it and to get a fuel efficient car. We watched as you arbitrarily demanded the closing of nearly 500 automobile dealerships nationwide; many of which just happened to have contributed to conservative candidates and conservative causes.
Your blaming former President George W. Bush for all of the woes of your administration have not gone unnoticed and it is telling us a story of your unwillingness to accept personal responsibility. We’ve listened as, in a recent speech, you referenced yourself as “I” and “me” 117 times in 25 minutes and it reminded us of the story of your narcissism. Your wife saying, “all this for a damn flag” during 9/11 ceremonies told us a story that we heard loud and clear, and your leering smirk, while nodding your head, put an exclamation mark at the end of that story.
We heard your Faustian stories as you personally told lie after lie about Obamacare–including that it wasn’t a tax, which we now have had confirmed as the tax we knew it to be. We heard the story of what kind of person you are as you lied about SCOTUS during your State of The Union speech, as you lied during the debt ceiling debates, and we listened carefully when you told us we needed “to be quiet and let the people that know what they’re doing” tell us why the debt ceiling should be raised.
Everything you have said and done has told us a story and it is a story with which we massively disagree. Yours is one continuing story of how to disparage America to foreign despots and how to reduce the White House to Cabrini Green on a hot weekend summer night. Your story is one that tells us you and your wife had no idea of the protocol and espirit de corps of the office you hold–and the dress and public behavior of your wife punctuates it.
Now we have another reminder of a story that has haunted you since you assumed office as your campaign has the audacity to raise the specter of Romney’s legal standing. Do you think we have forgotten the stories surrounding your eligibility, your relationships with known Chicago mobsters, your relationships with unrepentant domestic terrorists, and that you are the only leader in history to hide his past?
As I said, Barry, you have told a story–many of them, as a matter of fact. And they’ve all been nightmarish for those of us who have always loved America and who have not spent our lives cringing in shame of her as your wife told us she did.
There is one story you haven’t told that I know the majority of Americans would love to hear you tell and that is the story of your hejira. That, you mendacious megalomaniac, is a story We the People would gladly get behind. Heck, we wouldn’t complain if your wife started ahead of you.
