Obama the Angry

Posted on | May 21, 2014 | 37 Comments

First it was Benghazi, then it was the IRS, and now it’s the VA. Ace of Spades describes the Obama Scandal Reaction Method:

Always he says the same things:
1. He’s “mad. Or “angry.” Or “madder than hell.” Or even “apopleptic.” Obama vows he’s much, much angrier than you are — “no one is angrier than I am” — despite having no appearances of actual anger. Rather like a very controlled, uptight WASP Hulk.
2. He vows to “get to the bottom of this.” He says this in a way to suggest that he, personally, will be getting to the bottom of this. Of course he doesn’t. Within a week he’s playing golf and parcheesi with the White House motor pool.
3. Despite pronouncing this newest scandal extraordinary, he then demands that we… allow the routine, ordinary Bureaucratic Process to fix everything.
“Putting something in the process” is standard Bureaucratic jargon meaning that “nothing is being done and go f*** yourself raw.”

Media sonambulism makes it possible for him to get away with this.

    Ace left out step 4. Dismiss any subsequent questions as noise from FoxNews and demand Republicans move on to the issues Americans really care about. After a sufficient interval, add “That’s old news!”

    Perhaps by the end of his second term the Pomo Prez will know something about the world, the U. S. government, and the job he was foolishly elected to do.

    Appoints a “special” committee with the goal of finding nothing is really wrong and that conservatives again have conspired to make it more of a scandal than it ever was……so, move on, there was nothing to see here and y’all just wasted our time. If justice ever comes to those responsible for Benghazi for those dead, wounded, silenced and demoted there……it will be a very cold day in hell. Just like justice for Agent Brian Terry and the many others who have died from our weapons trafficking in another place. Obama gets mad as hell and nothing gets fixed. Time for the rest of us to get mad as hell until something does get fixed.

    Yup, the usual plan: First we are told to wait while the ongoing “vigorous” investigation continues, until such time as it becomes “What difference does it make now?” or “Dude, that was like two years ago.”

    If Obama’s approval rating isn’t below 40 before he leaves office, it’s going to make me seriously wonder about this country and how he could blatantly lie as President and still have that many idiots supporting him.

    He forgot to mention O’s over use of the word ‘period.’ He uses this in much the same way he would say the science is settled. Desperate to close down discussion and debate in his Utopian new world.

    I keep thinking about how, come January 20, 2017, the old profession of “Journalism” will suddenly re-appear, as if it had never been gone. Magically, the TV reporters will assume a mein of seriousness, and we will hear once again of the mythical (and long thought lost forever) Investigative Journalist.

    It’s going to be like a scene in a skiffy movie, when suddenly the timeline changes, and everything is different.

    We elected a “man” with exactly zero executive experience, wondering what could possibly go wrong, and now we know. Of course, some of us figured that out long before election day in 2008.

    So, he’s angry, he’s mad, he’s pissed off, huh? Well, considering that he is the chief executive, he’s the boss of every federal agency which has fouled up, he ought to be pissed off . . . at himself, for doing such a rotten job.
