Dear comrade leader whines: “They talk about me like a dog…”
This is what happens when our dear comrade leader goes “off prompter.” (story here from CNN) Speaking at a Labor Day union love-fest in Milwaukee, The One complained that certain “powerful interests” in Washington talk about him like a dog.
Those following President Obama’s prepared remarks during a speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Monday were thrown a bit of a curveball when it came to a description of his critics:”Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true,” he told a crowd largely consisting of union members.
The line was a rare departure from a president who normally sticks close to the text of his speech and may forecast a more aggressive tone on the part of Obama as the midterms approach.
The address is the first of two speeches this week in which Obama will try and frame his administration’s response to the recession, less than two months ahead of midterm elections where Democratic majorities in the House and Senate are on the ropes.
Apparently, after becoming used to the sycophantic adulation of the state-run media who at times referred to him as a “sort of God,” our dear comrade leader has allowed some negative comments to get under his notoriously thin skin. But “like a dog?” What the hell is that supposed to mean? Russ Feingold, democrat senator from Wisconsin who’s facing a serious challenge from a TEA Party backed opponent, was unavailable for comment as he had skipped the event. Pressed for a comment, former president Bush simply said, “Miss me yet?”
Those of us who survived the Carter presidency, hands down the worst president in US history, are beginning to realize that this president is giving Carter a serious challenge for that dubious honor. At least Carter had grace and humility (most of the time). Blaming others for your own shortcomings and failures is childish and disingenuous – at best. History will not be kind to this president. Our best hope is that America can survive the next 2 1/2 years.
If the shoe fits… Woof Woof…
