News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Aug. 2, 2013: The Energizer Bunny may be long gone from television.
Sadly the same can’t be said about President Barack Obama.
He just keeps ticking and ticking.
Selling the same BS message again and again.
The Con Game that never stopping giving and giving …
NOTHING but the same old Con and again …
At least it is ever ticking – tick tock, tick tock – toward its conclusion.
Time for another look at the Obama Countdown Clock …
It is good news or bad news depending on your view of Time.
Yes only 1275 more days of the Obama Presidency
Or if you prefer 3 years, 5 months, 26 more days of Suffering Barack Obama.
Hallelujah to 12 noon, Friday, January 20, 2017.
So what is the point of all this?. Glad to tell you.
For God knows or doesn’t how many times now since Barack Obama first became President on Tuesday, January 20, 2009. The last few weeks he has yet again pulled out very worn out “campaign” theme about how he is the champion of either the poor or the middle class or everyone except the Super Rich in fact his best friends.
So the last few weeks Obama has been hoping on and off his favorite toy of all Air Force One traveling here, there and everywhere giving what are now comical speeches in front of very carefully selected audiences about how he is going to fix America yet again.
Of course he never does.
But the stupid part is the media and the pubic can’t get enough of these lies and/or their memory is so far gone from crystal meth or too many hot dogs or something else they can’t remember how many times Obama has given the same BS speeches.
Obama droning on and on and delivering the same tired speeches and making the same old statements about inequality and the dying middle class again and again is why it seems these episodes of Obama’s America are getting shorter and shorter. He’s boring.
Let me slightly divert or maybe not to make this point about Obama in a different way and how he gets away with this stuff. The death of Trayvon Martin. Months ago Obama was widely lauded for his sensitivity and insights simply for standing in front of the camera and saying if he had had a son he would have looked just like Trayvon Martin. Wild applause. Praise for Obama. Why? For saying nothing more than the obvious.
What did it mean in a useful way? Nothing. What did he then say he would do for young Black men or any African Americans as a result? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Then and this is the point of bringing up Trayvon Martin here and why this is such a subtle but telling example of the Obama Con. After the Trayvon Martin decision a few weeks ago, Obama goes in front of the cameras again. But what does he say this time. Exactly the same. Except it seemed different to the media and some of the public.
Instead of saying Trayvon Martin could have been his son at he did earlier this time Barack Obama says Trayvon Martin “could have been me.” Again wild applause for Obama; praise for his compassion for what. One more time, saying the obvious again. And once again did Obama do anything useful or of substance? Absolutely not.
And let me add – no Trayvon Martin could not have been teenager Barack Obama unless Trayvon was a privileged Black kid living in Hawaii who played lots of basketball and smoked even more pot and went to the finest schools with the children of the Hawaiian elite.
Anyway after that useful diversion into the real Barack Obama.
Back to the real theme of this episode. Obama running around and flying around once again proclaiming himself the President of the Common Men & Women. Really Barack? REALLY? During your 5 years as President, inequality in America has increased further. Poverty has increased while you have been President. Upward mobility has decreased further while you have been President. Good jobs have decreased but part time increased.
And while you Barack Obama have been President the richest Americans just keep getting richer and richer. They have rarely had it this good. They will thank you with $$$$.
So who exactly is benefiting from the Obama Presidency while Obama for the fifth, sixth, seventh or eight time, as savvy members of the media have noted – drags out the same “themes” in slightly altered rhetoric while doing nothing to change things? What’s that you Obama lovers say? But his hands are tied. It’s the Republicans fault.
Well then you ought to listen more closely pay more attention. Obama takes every inside the Belt Way Democratic position on everything just like Democratic Presidents before him. Just as he did when he was first elected and he had both a Democratic House and Senate and he did nothing, except lose Democratic control of the House in 2010.
So this is the story of Barack Obama and the Energizer Bunny.
It is a horror story until January 20, 2017.
Until then Obama will just keep ticking and ticking to our disadvantage.
So sad for the rest of us. Too bad we don’t have a Time Machine.
That is what we need not Air Force One to take Obama to 1/20/217.
