DUmmies Make Excuses For Obama's Helplessness
Take a look at the series of photos above. It is Lyndon Johnson giving the "Johnson Treatment" to Senator Theodore Green in order to extract a vote from him. Now try to imagine Barack Obama leaning in to a senator or congressman to obtain the same result. It's laughable to even imagine something like that. Obama just doesn't have the inclination for close quarter politicking that is necessary to pass desired legislation. I was thinking about this just a little while ago after reading this Commentary ARTICLE, "The Un-Lyndon Johnson," about how Obama hates the political process in stark contrast to Lyndon Johnson who CONSTANTLY worked on legislators...not just during infrequent phony "charm offensives." Now, I don't agree with much of Johnson's legislation which added expensive new government programs but you have to admire the guy's persistence. Contrast that with Obama who obviously detests the necessary art of politics (btw, have you noticed that the Bamster's Oval Office desk NEVER has any paperwork on it?). However, the true believers in DUmmieland can't bring themselves around to admitting that Obama is a flop in the nuts and bolts politics of the presidency as you can see in this THREAD, "WHY CAN'T PRESIDENT OBAMA GET ANYTHING DONE!!?1!!" Before you read the DUmmies making lame excuses for Obama's incompetence, I urge you to listen to this AUDIO of LBJ practically twisting Senator Richard Russell's arm out of joint to put him on the Warren Commission despite his flat out refusal to do so. So let us now watch the DUmmies make excuses for Obama's utter incompetence in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the recent FAILED (thank goodness) gun control bill could have passed the Senate if not for Obama's reluctance to work directly on the Senators, is in the [barackets]:
WHY CAN'T PRESIDENT OBAMA GET ANYTHING DONE!!?1!!
[BECAUSE HE WOULD RATHER HIT THE GOLF LINKS WITH TIGER WOODS!!!!!]
Because there is a Republican majority in the House of Representatives and a stupid filibuster rule in the Senate, where Democrats have a small majority.
[So how was Ronald Reagan ever able to pass his tax cut bill in 1981? Maybe it was because he didn't treat the legislators like they had the plague?]
We can fix that. We can fix that, if we really, really want to. It's up to us. We can fix it, or we can complain about it for another three years. I vote for fixing it.
[Sorry but history is NOT on your side. The midterm elections in the second term of presidents are almost NEVER favorable for them and the ineptness of the current White House occupant will make things even worse. Now on to the other lame DUmmie excusess for Obama's incompetence.....]
Obama, himself, needs to hold some face to face meetings with these people or at least set up some real time conference videos with specially set up town hall meetings where the people come and ask their questions and get direct answers from the President if only through teleconferencing. This administration is just not active enough.
[Too much work for The One. Next suggestion?]
WHY don't we have people who are willing to be more devious?
[Oh, I think you have a plethora of that type.]
Problem -- Harry Reid and Senate
[Yeah, it is a little tough when your senate leader has all the charm of a gloomy undertaker.]
Obama's relationship with Congress is bad because he wasn't in Congress very long and doesn't really understand how it works. Also, Obama has surrounded himself at the White House with a lot of smart guys who are mostly interested in themselves. He has only a very small number of long-term friends who will support him through thick or thin.
[Sounds like all his close friends are flunkies.]
Yep we need to start thinking 2014. It's the only answer
[Reserve the Rubber Room for November 2014 for DUmmie flamingdem.]
I thought he had a majority in the house a while back. So what would be the dif now?
[Maybe he won't waste all his time trying to pass a massive unworkable piece of legislation aka ObamaCare.]
Poor, poor President Obama, so helpless, except when he decides he doesn't want to be.
[He's very decisive in his Final Four picks.]
GOTV = Get Out The Vaseline (and grab your ankles).
[Is that you, Ben Burch?]
VOTE f*ck a vote. Is my entire life span f*cking nothing. 60 f*cking years, where's the land of opportunity. Where is the "land of the free". My f*cking vote means nothing because some rich mother f*cker can BUY my spineless greedy candidate AFTER he is in office. How much f*cking longer do I have to live to see this so called DEMOCRACY correct itself. Or would it be long enough if I lived another 100 years.
[Put On A Happy Face by Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
And if you're feeling cross and bitterish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you'll feel fine
I knew a girl so glooming
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face]
