Drawing Obama Out

Drawing Obama Out

The Barack Obama we saw at the press conference earlier this week, the one who inspired the controversial comment by Mark Halperin, is the real Barack Obama.

The Barack Obama of 2008 was a charade.

It only serves our interest to draw out the real Barack Obama, to motivate our base, and so this time the voters know what they are voting for.

And here is the instruction manual, so that one might know which buttons to push:

I believe this tactic would be immensely productive. Most people have no idea of the extent to which Obama is essentially a charlatan. What he presents does not match what he does; in fact, his intent is often quite the opposite of what he would like people to believe. Too many people have been seduced by his rhetoric – PLEASE – let’s stop the nonsense about how he gives a good speech and how he has a pleasing personality. His manner of speech is simply one of the tactics he employs to deceive people.

Its all about pressure and challenge. Apply a little of each, and the petulant manchild comes out. He’s rarely been challenged in his adult life, and he doesn’t handle it well. Something the republican nominee might want to keep in mind during the debates.

keep it away from personal but hit Obama on things like leadership, competence, his use of strawman arguments and I think you can get under his skin in no time flat. I doubt he could stand being called a bad leader 2 sentences in a row without lashing out.

To me, he’s no different now than he was in 2008. I thought he was a charlatan then.

Halperin should never have apologized Obama for his remark. When a person acts in an arrogant and condescending manner they need to be confronted on it, not coddled.

But more cynically, did Halperin deliberately call Obama an explitive in order to deflect attention away from Obama’s arrogant and condescending behavior? They spent at least a couple of minutes discussing the seven second delay and Halperin’s intent to say something unacceptable as though they were ginning up the nerve to do it. It is a long standing liberal tactic to change the subject by feigning the victim or expressing faux shock or outrage.

Regarding Meany-Poo-Poo-Head-Corporate-Jet-Owning-Tax-Evaders, it’s kinda hard to take the “adult in the room” seriously when his prescription for the economy’s severed arteries is some Flintstones chewables.

Yes, yes and yes. Draw him out, make him self-expose. What comes into view that way is the truth, as is happening.

Let evil be itself, in full view, as it desires to be, thinking itself omnipotent/omnipresent, and its intrinsic powerlessness is exposed to ridicule, humor and defeat.

This one and mate have been evil all along, a pure and therefore felicitously instructive form of liar. It is good s/he self-expose.

Who cringes at what s/he might do and hopes it doesn’t happen, misses the point and the occasion.

Follow the Master.
Face the devil.
Fight to the end.
Finish the game.
