Was Obama Punch Drunk?

Not since Paris Hilton have we seen somebody so in love with their own celebrity. Wait, hasn't somebody already made that comparison? Anyway, unlike most presidents who spend their time meeting with skilled advisers, showing respect to allies and hiring people who haven't cheated on their taxes to run the IRS, our current president thinks the way to run a country is to take your economic plan on the road and feed it to the people via late night TV and Jay Leno. Yes, he was the first sitting president to appear as a guest on a late night talk show -- it seems all of his predecessors thought their role as leader of the free world included a little splash of dignity. But nobody who has looked at Obama's stimulus package will deny that it belongs on the Tonight Show since it may have been authored by a Jay Walking allstar. Ah, and the laughs didn't stop with Leno . . .

Barack Obama has taken his government giggle fest to 60 minutes where he snickered his way through an analysis of the country's current financial woes. Even interviewer Steve Kroft was surprised by Obama's cavalier attitude, asking, "Are you punch-drunk?"

“You're sitting here. And you're— you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems. Are people going to look at this and say, ‘I mean, he's sitting there just making jokes about money—’ How do you deal with— I mean: explain. . .”
So yuck it up America, he'll be here all week. In fact, he'll be here three more years. Try the veal.

    you guys are starting to sound, shall we say, jealous of our popular President. It's not very becoming. Can we sit back and enjoy his 8 years. He will succeed, you'll see...

    Exactly! You’ve got it, Sue.

    And when Mr. Obama is completely successful implementing National Socialism through efforts such as these, we will prefer not want to hear your complaints when you suddenly realize that you’ve lost your God-given liberties.

    You do know about National Socialism, don’t you Sue? You remember how an ever-popular leader convinced millions of adoring imbeciles that he alone had the answer for a new prosperity, a new period of reaching out, and how he organized young people to carry his message forward.

    Ah, yes … those were the good old days, right Sue, when Adolph Hitler was “the one?”

    Were you traumatized as a child? Have you always been this naive? Or did you have to work on it?

    Better yet, are for you real? Or do you make up this naive online persona, for purely comedic value? If not, I'd look for some help.

    It's inconceivable to me that someone can actually say something like this if they had a good history teacher back in school.

    We see wide sweeping reforms that empower the government (more than it already is), at a speed faster than sound. Just like the Nazis.

    We see the creation of an Obama Youth specifically for indoctrination purposes. Just like the Hitler Youth.

    We hear proposals to set up a civilian security corps. Just like the Mussolini Black Shirts and the SS.

    Tell us Sue, tell us the truth. Tell us that this is some sick joke you are playing on us. Right? You can't possibly be missing any of this, can you?

    I can only laugh at you.. you're so full of it..
    and BTW, if McCain was president and he was forced to make these same decisions to save our country, would you still be fearmongering?

    If he was pulling the same kind of crap, you betcha. I am not a party hack, I am guided by core principles and beliefs. I have voted for Democrats and Republicans alike, I always mix my ticket. So your partisan rhetoric is of no affect on me, one way or the other.

    The fact that you actually believe that any human being has the capabilities to perform miracles as have been ascribed to Obama (the obvious object of your political adoration) tells me you are of the most gullible of human beings.

    I would be careful if I were you. This kind of personal characteristic makes you high risk for joining a cult.

    It is evident that Sue has imbibed in too much of the leftist koolaide and needs serious rehab.

    Of course people such as Sue never see the end result as they are too busy "feeling" the immediate but in this case the past for the immediate looks like the future... failure on the economy . However that is what the "One" hopes will happen or should I say his puppet master George Soros. Global government will be the result of the Chief Occupiers term in office unless people wake up.

    I wonder if Marie Antoinette was giggling when she said "Let them eat cake"?

    Sue, I understand your view that conservatives are crying wolf about socialism, but you really need to follow the bouncing ball on this one. We're not talking about Stalinism, but Euro-style socialism that is outlined in the Teleprompter President's plans for health care, law enforcement (read: gun control), education, environmental control, and industry.

    I lived in Germany. Before you look longingly into Europe's concept of state controlled institutions, ask yourself if you want a future where 14% unemployment is considered good and your country is forced to rely on a land that practices capitalism to provide you with the greatest advances in medicine, science and technology . . . oh, except with America wrapped in european socialism there will be no such country to lead the world scientic and medical advances.
