Theater of Shiny Objects

Theater of Shiny Objects

The War on Women.  The Longest Football Spike Since The Great Depression. Slow jamming.  Julia.  Show me the money Gay marriage .  Inserting his own bio into the bios of other presidents.

It’s one shiny object after another.

Does it ever stop with this guy?

Hopefully recent polling becomes a trend, and the country is ready to walk out of the Theater of Shiny Objects in the middle of the show.

I won’t claim to be a psychologist, but this guy is desperate need for attention, any way he can get it. Which means he’s easily manipulated – offer him attention and praise, and he’ll do anything for you. Reminds me of what Madonna or Lady Gaga would be like as President. Only they’ve actually run successful businesses…

Here’s to Remember in November, wherein we reduce the legacy of Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac to two trunkless legs of stone amidst the shifting sands of history.

Ahhh… ‘twould be sweet, ‘twould…

Just google ‘Frank Marshall Davis’ to see part of what drives this idiot.

To paraphrase something from the ’08 campaign:

“He’s the person he’s been waiting for!”

    Should we start a pool now on how much money Obama will have left over at the end of the campaign that can be “channeled” else where ?

Shiny objects may work for Leftists, but the rest of us are just seeing a big fat turd.

With womyn turning racists and all (Romney led Obama among women 46%-44% in CBS/NYT poll), eventually we will get to the economy and it won’t be pretty.

    I can see it now:

    Obama: I inherited a huge mess from Bush

    Romney: Just think of the mess I’ll be getting from you.

… and all the appearances on “The View,”

couldn’t put Humpty-O back together again.

Re: Inserting his own bio into the bios of other presidents.

Daniel Foster at The Corner:

“In the 12th Century B.C., Moses the Lawgiver delivered the Ten Commandments to the Israelites. President Obama the Lawgiver has added significantly to them, overseeing the enactment of a record number of new regulations.”

“In the Late Neolithic, the wheel was invented. President Obama has made historic use of wheels for his many campaign trips to Ohio.”

“During the Cambrian period, the first vertebrates appeared. President Obama showed historic signs of a primitive backbone himself when he boldly announced that ‘at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.'”

“About three billion years ago, the first aerobic organisms appeared. President Obama has made historic use of oxygen in his detailed answers to press conference questions.”

    William Howard Taft oversaw the entry of Arizona into the Union.

    President Barack Obama, through the innovative use of arms sales to Mexican drug cartels, is circumventing the laws of both the US and Mexico to help bring death and destruction to both nations. His Attorney General has been able to use his stupidity and gile to outfox investigators in the US Commission on Civil Rights and the US House of Representatives in order to keep this illegal activity from seeing the light of day, and thus secure his Black manhood.

    Wow, He’s really been terribly busy!

    President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the first president to use crutches to walk.

    President Obama was the first president to use teleprompters as crutches.

It’s a freak show

Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds. ” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And President Obama directed God to forget about creating oil and other forms of energy that weren’t green. And there was evening, and there was morning —the third day.

In that case, the color was “peach” as my children used to tell me (we are not “white”, according to them).

Obama suffers from “shiny ball” syndrome: “abandoning your current idea and jumping to that next new idea (the shiny ball) you just KNOW is going to be a winner.” Obama keeps on betting on shiny duds.

This is gonna leave a mark …

The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.

“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.

After the NY Post story, this ought to get Rev Wright an offer of at least $250,000 to shut up.

The fairy tale ends November 2012 – pun intended 😉

I think the next thing that he will do is pass amnesty for illegals. i think he will have to. That is all he has left.

Uncle Soros, not Uncle Sam, needs you Obama. Move to Greece.

A lot of this must be driven by people who work for him and suck up to him: they know what he wants.

Seee! Seeeee!! Seeeeeee!! See how conservatives are. Just when I am enjoying the “shiny objects” and how purr-ty, purrr-ty, purrrrr-ty they are, the “bad” people come. They want me to believe that the “shiny objects” aren’t purrrrr-ty, but “ugly” things. “Yes,” they say, “you might feel good now, but in the morning you are going to feel very, very bad.” I wish someone would come and take the “bad” people away, because they’re always scaring me. Besides, I weally, weally, weally love the “shiny objects”. They make me feel so good. If you would only give them a chance, they’ll make you feel good, too! (This is not a political ad, nor is it endorsed by any political candidate).

I’m surprised there hasn’t been a #ObamaInHistory thread yet!

President Benjamin Harrison added four new states to the union in a 10-day period, in November, 1889. President Obama added seven new states to the union in a single speech

With the new Obama plugs at Presedential Biographies, I believe we have finally arrived at The Theater of The Absurd. Come on…the only changes that should be made to biograpy pages are perhaps updates due to death or something amazing that happened post Presidency.
For a President to plug healthcare or anything else he feels is noteworthy in some cheap attempt to associate himself with other popular Presidents sinks to the level of “as seen on TV” late nite infomercials.
Whats next? A new project at Mt Rushmore?
It simply reeks of desperation. The sort of desperate behaviour John Belushi portrayed in a skit on SNL where he played a dismayed Captain Kirk that refused to leave the Enterprise.
But that was a comedy skit. Obama is doing this in real life. Talk about a pathetic overreach.

    I’m waiting for Dear Leader to start rolling two ball bearings together and questioning his aides about the missing strawberries!

One of your best posts eva Prof.


When Obama came down off the mountain he told the assembled multitudes that he and God had worked out an agreement on the ten suggestions. However he said, I have bad news for Sandra Fluke and many like her because fornication is still one of the ten. He went on to say that it was obvious that God was a Republican and was making a war on women.

    Milhouse in reply to Anchovy. | May 15, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Fornication isn’t one of the ten even now. It’s not even clear whether it’s one of the 613. The Bible never explicitly prohibits it.

Barack Obama is proficient in juggling shiny objects to keep the suckers distracted as their pockets are picked.
