Barack Obama had ESPN over to the White House so they could film him making out his brackets for the NCAA basketball tournament known as “March Madness.” Sunday Mr. Obama was out golfing but more on that later.
In the mean time the Middle East is in turmoil, Libyan rebels are begging for help as Muammar Qadhafi and his henchman massacre innocent people across the land. Japan is leaking nuclear radiation, the economy is still in the tank despite some in the press announcing how swimmingly we’re all doing and the beat goes on for Obama.
Not to worry, Mr. Obama has his Czars busy in the background pillaging American freedom, liberty and regulating America towards tyranny.
But to hear it from the faux paux Conservative David Brooks at the New York Times we have Ike and JFK rolled into one Barack Hussein Obama:
“I remember distinctly an image of–we were sitting on his couches, and I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant,” David Brooks told The New Republic two years ago, reminiscing about an encounter from 2005, when Obama was a newly elected U.S. senator. “And I’m thinking, a) he’s going to be president and b) he’ll be a very good president.”
Fast forward 2011:
“The campaign of 2008 was marked by soaring calls for transformation. Now the administration spends much of its time reacting to events and counseling restraint.”
“On Friday, President Obama gave a press conference that perfectly captured his current phase. He acknowledged rising gas prices but had no new energy policy to announce. On Libya, he emphasized the need to deliberate carefully our steps ahead but had no road map to propose. On the federal budget fight, he spoke passionately about the need to reach a compromise. But when given the chance to talk about what it might look like, he rose above the fray and vaguely counseled balance and moderation.”
“Prudence is always a nice trait in a leader, especially in the face of a thorny problem like Libya,” Brooks writes.
If David Brooks is Conservative then I’m Winston Churchill. Brooks, much like former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan, find themselves constantly cheerleading for Obama despite his own quite visible incompetence and their own irrelevancy as journalists.
Let’s quickly examine the recent itinerary of Barack Obama:
Friday – A no-news conference concerning Libya;
Saturday – Obama delivered an address to the nation in which, according to the White House website, he “pays homage to former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, commends the great strides that have been made to create a more equal American society, and reaffirms his resolve to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.”
Also reported Saturday by ABC News reported, “for the second week in a row, the most powerful man in the world stepped away from the White House to hit the golf course.”
Sunday – Obama wrote an op-ed piece for Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star calling for “at least . . . the beginning of a new discussion on how we can keep America safe for all our people” — Obamaspeak for stricter gun-control laws.
Tuesday – National Review’s Jim Geraghty, quoting Politico’s Mike Allen, he “will tape interviews from the Map Room with KOAT Albuquerque, KDKA Pittsburgh and WVEC Hampton Roads on education reform and the need to fix No Child Left Behind.” He also “is taping his NCAA [basketball] picks today, and they’ll be revealed Wednesday on ESPN.”
Upcoming Weekend – Forbes reports that amid crises in the Middle East and Japan, Obama will travel overseas–to Brazil.
Barack Obama’s job is to protect the interests of the nation but to Obama it’s to relax, attempt to mask his inability to lead and delegate America’s future to his group of Leftist Czars.
Yes, the world is burning, the economy is stagnant, government is growing and Barack Obama is play, indeed!
