I am sure someone out there will accuse me of being an aphorist, but it’s hard not to be when there are such good aphorisms. Have you ever heard Steve Jobs say, ” Jeez, ya know a Mac is way over priced, even if if it is the best”, or Bill Gates say, “Windows is a stinking operating system that should have been scrapped long ago” or better yet, Joe Torre exclaiming how bad the Yankees suck while accepting the World Series Trophy?
I doubt it. I doubt you ever would, even with no one else around. We have a saying where I come from: Il pesce puzza dalla testa. The fish stinks from the head. Obama has a penchant
for speaking ill of his homeland when abroad. Colleen Bottalico’s mom, Moira Quinn, would have called him a stranger lover. Obviously he thinks this effacement is warranted, and agrees with with it. He must think he is currying favor with foreign nationals. To what end? Does he believe he will run for president of the world? Or does he truly hate this country? May be both? Never trust someone that tries to elevate his/herself at the expense of others. This guy has a combination of a chip on his shoulder, marxist/progressivist beliefs, and the political abilities to get to the office of the presidency, as a shadow candidate no less. I would ask how long before most of realize how disingenuous he is, or to put it another way, when will the stench get to everyone?
It’s hard to tell. With the new 4th branch of government, the press, AKA Propaganda and Public Relations, Obama may take his magic act
to a whole new level. When he’s done, he may make FDR look like Jimmy Carter. I am betting that at some point, the press will get tired of playing step and fetch it and someone will have to look behind the curtain
, but who? Bush never had this acquiescent and docile of a press. Can you imagine? I am not taking sides here, only observing. Such obeisance should be disconcerting to journalists. It also doesn’t do well for ratings. Have they no pride?
Thank you for reading this blog.
