Being President is hard!

Most of us are probably aware of this but apparently our commander in chief never got the memo. 

Everytime he opens his cake hole he’s either talking about all the great things he’s done so far (“a good solid B+”), things that the average American who knows the difference between the smell of horse shit and accomplishment are starting to catch a whiff of, or he is blathering on about all the “Hopenchange” to come if only we will set aside our good sense and believe that the road apple of Obama-care, Cap & Trade, etc. that he is asking us to choke down without so much as a pause to take a sniff of,  is actually a Granny Smith. If you are still hesitant, he will impatiently and petulantly explain how everything is Bush’s fault as if this will make the turd taste sweeter, were it true or not. Refuse to eat what is obviously a piece of shit and you’re just too stupid to see that the soft green briquet laying at your feet is actually smooth and red and shiny… because he is brilliant and he says it is.

Even in our post-modern era it seems that most American’s won’t put up with this level of arrogance and condescension in their leaders unless those leaders are very good at disguising it, which the current occupant of the oval office most certainly is not. He wears his superiority like a Saturday Night Fever white polyester suit. Loud and proud. 

Keep it up pal and your “inspirational” mantra of  “We are the change we’ve been waiting for” will merely become analogous to the shedding of yesterdays tighty-whitey’s for a clean pair in 2010 and 2012.

  1. I’m still not anticipating November 2010 or 2012 either one. People may be smelling the manure now – things they abhor on one side of the aisle and things they were promised that they aren’t getting on the other side of the aisle – but people have notoriously short memories and attention spans. I’d like to think enough on both sides will have had it with him but I fear the only thing that will really impact a re-election will be whatever happens in October 2012 and not before.

  2. Heh. Heh.

    You’re beginning to sound positively Daphnesque.

    Nothing like a good old-fashioned rant.

    It’s what your crowd thrives on.

    Cheers!

  3. Ordinarily I would agree Nicole but there seems to be something in the wind this time around that spells doom for the Dems in 2010. If the conservative/libertarian coalition fractures along ideological lines however with third party movements and the like, I suspect even if ground is gained in the mid-terms, we may be in for four more years of “Carter II” in 2012.

  4. I take that as a compliment of the highest order Arthur.
    My “crowd” does thrive on a good old fashioned logical fact based rant, unlike the bile rooted in fantasy and denial regularly spewed by your ideological bretheren.

    Don’t you go changin’!

Refuse to eat what is obviously a piece of shit and you’re just too stupid to see, or to perceive really, that the soft green briquet laying at your feet….’

    Presumably you never were on the debate team.

    And speaking of bile…

    And don’t worry. I won’t change. No name calling & no profanity from me.

    Cheers!

  6. The debate team? In my experience there were ususally only one or two people participating in this kind of extracuricular activity who had more than a couple of brain cells to rub together. Mostly they seemed social clubs for future low level politicians and middle management suck ups.

    Wow. The bile flows continuously. Happily most of us have had better experiences. My experience was of bright, well-informed and passionate students engaged in constructive argument.

    So far as having only ‘a couple of brain cells to rub together’ Please don’t confuse high school and college debate teams with bloggers.

    Cheers!

  8. This qualifies as bile to you Arthur? You must be a very sensitive individual indeed. Afraid of loud noises and differing opinions? No surprise you are so enamored of Obama’s world of rainbows and unicorn farts. No bile intended, just a good natured barb as you are so fond of throwing my way.

    As for you Daphne, what did you expect. Write well and passionately and people will notice.

  9. Daphne-

    How goes it?

    My ‘crowd’. Nope.

    How about my posts? Find me a rant. Find a curse word for that matter.

    Anyway. Why are you talking to me?

    Aren’t you afraid of infection?

    How much longer are you going to deny your readers my contributions? Poor sods don’t have anyone to feel superior to.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  10. westsound modern wondered:

    Afraid of loud noises and differing opinions?

    Not at all.

    That would be a certain Jaded One. She’s terrified of differing opinions.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    As far as Obama goes while I voted for him I certainly didn’t expect any great change and am hardly ‘enamored’ of the man. He’s a right-center Democrat & barely acceptable.

    I cannot, however, in good conscience vote GOP for an office of this magnitude. The guns, baby, defending marriage and family and the Jesus planks simply don’t work for me.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  11. Obama…right-center?! Only in Seattle fella.
    As far as Daphne, I’ve never seen her “terrified” of differing opinions unless you mean that she has opinions of her own and expresses them with passion. The only time I’ve seen her get pissy with someone in the comment threads is when they get personal, which seems to be a rather common occurance with those of a progressive bent, and then they have it coming as far as I’m concerned.

    Hey Daph! Your ears burning?!

  12. Much better Daphne. I put a shot across the backside of a certain dog that was shitting in my yard and he high tailed it for home with tail between legs.

  13. Heh. Heh.

    I love that about certain conservatives.

    Dish it out but they can’t take it.

    This look familiar?

    “Posted in Obama | Tagged Obama, Obama’s an asshole, Obama’s an ignorant ass | 40 Comments »”

    It has nothing to do with ‘belittling’ or ‘scathing ridicule’ or ‘pissy’ at all. If I wrote the very same words targeting the President or Progressives you’d be fine with it. But disagree with you and your readers ideas (without cursing or name-calling) and how sensitive you become.

    And yes Mark, right-central Democrat about sums it up. Plump for a healthcare plan more conservative than Dick Nixon’s and the description fits.

  14. Depends on how you define right and left Arthur. If conservative and liberal are synonomous with republican and democrat, then your point holds up.

    If on the other hand you belive as I do that Nixon was no conservative, as evidenced by his Keynesian economic policies and the growth of the Federal govt. under his administration, then not so much. JFK judged solely by his political philosophy was more “conservative” than Nixon regardless of party affiliation.

    In any objective comparison between collectivist and individualist political philosophy, Obama is well to the left of center.

  15. Hi Mark, this is your mother. Having ignored your blog for several months, I decided to check on your latest rants. I see you have collected a reader that calls you on some of your stuff. Whomever Arthur is, he sounds like someone who “thinks before he blasts”. I still ocassionally wonder who you are and what you’ve done with my son. the one who used to be so mellow. It’s no wonder you have high blood pressure.

  16. One of the most laughable and rediculous blog entries I have ever read. Not only childish in it’s use of words like “cake hole” and “horse shit” in a discussion, but the hypocricy Displayed by both Mark and that sycophant Daphne Is positively mind boggling. Trying to accuse someone of ranting, only to come back with: My “crowd” does thrive on a good old fashioned logical fact based rant, unlike the bile rooted in fantasy and denial regularly spewed by your ideological bretheren. My, my, those are big words. I thought you were afraid of people who acted surperior and sounded educated.

    And then this line: “No surprise you are so enamored of Obama’s world of rainbows and unicorn farts” As a matter of fact; I believe the majority of Americans must really like rainbows and unicorn farts. At least more than out of touch old cold war farts and dim-witted mayors of tiny Alaska hillbilly towns. Oops, I didn’t mean to use such edjumacated soundin’ words. “No bile intended”. heh

    And then to brag to your cheerleader about shooting at a poor dog just trying to relieve itself in your yard? I thought you loved freedom…. (maybe you just confused it for a running dog capitolist – and your latent “Liberal” side came out.

    Keep it up, it just gets better and better. With more info-blogs like these, the “Liberals” will be running the show for many More years to come. Compared to the lingering stink of the Bush years, unicorn farts smell pretty OK to me.

    Joe

  17. Yes Joe,
    “cake hole” and “horseshit”. In the same sentence yet. It must be shocking for someone with such a large brain to have to read such things. Not big words but to the point, wouldn’t you say. Perhaps you can enlighten me on more appropriate terms for a mouth that won’t stop running and the stuff that falls from the south end of a horse. I eagerly await your response so as to make my posts more tolerable to your delicate sensibilities.

    I think I know your type Joe. The world would run oh so smoothly if only everyone were as smart as…Joe?
