"My Whte House. My White House." Really?
“My White House. My White House.” Really?
by John Alexander Madison
June 10, 2012
There he goes again…our self-absorbed, ego-centric, narcissistic President. He plays the blame game better than anyone, taking no responsibility whatsoever for: his monumental deficit spending; his unprecedented national debt excesses; his expensive and unnecessary auto industry bailout; his appointment of dozens of unaccountable czars; his many other failed initiatives, including his failed fast and furious gun program; and his loose-lipped White House team who don’t understand that national security secrets are just that…they are secrets and they are not to be shared.
On the one hand, can you blame the president for blaming others? On the other hand, he has nothing to worry about. He’ll either be out of the office in seven (l-o-n-g) months, with full secret service protection, a pension, a lucrative book deal and speaking tour fees OR he will be starting his second four-year term as President of the United States. Then, as he implied to our enemies, he can do whatever he wants after the election. When is enough going to be enough?
One highly respected journalist was overheard uttering recently that “this president’s records sucks.” No argument here but that is probably an understatement. Let’s give that guy a Pulitzer Prize.
With the president’s proclamation about “my White House” this past week, it is rumored that yet another Presidential Order was issued recently, unbeknownst to you and me, transferring title of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to Mr. and Mrs. Barrack Hussein Obama. If true, I find that unacceptable.
The president was visibly shaken last week when the White House was accused of leaking highly sensitive, national security secrets about double agents, drones strikes, hit lists and more. Of course, many suspected that the leaks were “intentionally leaked” to show this president is strong on national defense and he is fully engaged in the war on terror which, if you will remember, he earlier stated does not exist. In response to the leak accusation he said “that is offensive.”
To paraphrase Queen Gertrude in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Act III, scene II “methinks this president doth protest too much.” He passionately insists so often about something not being true that people suspect the opposite of what he is saying to be true. That pretty much sums it up. Who can believe this president anymore?
Aren’t you offended by this administration’s failed policies, the broken promises and ongoing attacks on everyone in site? He continues to bully the United States Supreme Court justices in advance of their decision on the unconstitutionality of his unsustainable health care initiative; he attacks the Catholic Church for following its principles; and he blames his November opponent for disenfranchising women. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. And to top it off, he blames Governor Mitt Romney for Obamacare saying “it was his idea.” Barry, I’ve got news for you, the people of Massachusetts wanted health care reform and they got it…and a great majority still like what they got. However, you and your democrat-controlled Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate) rammed your takeover of national healthcare down our collective throats when you could. The difference is, most Americans did not like your plan then and we don’t like it now. Obamacare is all on you Mr. President…all three thousand pages or so. Thanks to Ms. “you’ve got to pass Obamcare so we can learn what’s in it” Pelosi, we have read it and it too “sucks.”
But remember, when everything you have tried is a total failure you have no other options in your effort for re-election than to divide and conquer and play the blame game until all is lost. And “all will be lost”, presumably and hopefully, on the evening of November 6, 2012 after the general election polls close. And then, once and for all, the man who history will label as THE worst, most political, most irresponsible, and most divisive president in the history of this country will have to find another place to live. Jimmie, you will then be officially off the hook.
In yet another news conference on June 8 (or was it a campaign speech, I get confused) the President said “People need a better sense of how I approach this office.” I don’t agree. We have a very strong sense of that after nearly three and a half years of exactly how you’ve approached this office…as if you own it. But we’ve already covered that… is it not your White House and it is not your office and a majority of Americans do not like what you have done while occupying it.
Which gives me an idea…let’s start the Occupy the White House movement, in protest to what you have been doing there. If it’s good enough for Wall Street it’s got to be good enough for Pennsylvania Avenue.
Or better still; just don’t punish yourself by giving this guy another four years to do any more damage. Do you think the First Lady may then revert to not being proud of her country?
