Mockery is the hardest thing.

How Obama wants to be viewed, via Twitchy (images from U.S. Embassy – London):

Ridicule is the in-sincerest form of flattery.
“ridicule is the sincerest form of mockery.” FTFY!
And so, the sword of Alinsky cuts both ways.
If only the GIF were a bit longer and he proceeded to eat the dog.
And then pulled out a cellphone and taken a selfie with Obama …
Obama, the clinical narcissist, is like a reflecting pond: a hundred yards long and three-inches deep. Ridicule is literally sticks and stones. He cannot abide being made fun of, much like the bully that manifests itself in everything thing he does and is.
He’s a walking Hegelian dialectic, as we see in the effects that his pre-election regulatory rule-making delays had on making the ObamaCare roll-out a disaster of legendary proportions.
Ridicule, mockery and lampoon is Kryptonite to the DNC’s Supraman (sic). No offense, Yossarian.
I don’t know if Obama is a narcissist, but his followers are jumped the shark with that cult of personality a looong time ago, and if he had wanted to rein them in, all it would have taken is a word or two.
The portrait in London is straight out of Orwell.
Yeah… and nowadays, I look in the mirror every morning and see Emmanuel Goldstein looking back at me!
Can Branco un-crop Obama’s portrait to show it was a selfie?
You do know that Obama is a better photographer than his photographers, don’t you? He said so himself.
It’s a joke right? He didn’t actually put that giant head shot up, and over shadow Washington and Lincoln. If true, I hope that military officer keeps a tight hold on the launch codes! Because he’s certifiable.
It’s no joke. That’s the picture Obama or someone high in his circle chose for our embassy. Expect it to appear in other embassies soon, too.
Remember the photo he chose to memorialize the Kennedy Assassination a couple of weeks ago was of himself gazing at the official Kennedy portrait. And one of the first “official” photos of his Administration was of him admiring himself in a mirror.
No, it’s no joke.
The joke is on us: this clown was elected twice. If we ever needed to rethink universal franchise, this should be the inspiration.
We can ridicule all we want. He’s still President and still awesomely destructive and will be for three more years. Until we come up with some direct and steady and fearless political response to him and his media cohort, we’re just going to keep on taking a beating.
At this point the ONLY remedy is elections. A sufficiently big win in the midterms will allow us to put more brakes on his destruction of our polity.
But even that remedy is limited. He still will hold office for a full two years after that, and there is much damage which we cannot prevent.
Elections matter. Those who stayed home, voted third party, or “left the top line blank” in 2012 should stand up and accept their share of responibility for making the perfect the enemy of the better.
Even now, in some dark corners of the minds of madmen, our fellow “conservatives” are spending more time, money, and energy plotting against officeholders of our own party than on how to unseat more Democrats.
But when the R’s are indistinguishable from the D’s, what are we to do? Reagan and Goldwater were so-excoriated, so it ain’t nuthin’ new.
I think TJS beat me to it, but….
A big Republican mid-term take-over of the legislature might “put more brakes on his destruction of our polity,” but no amount of freshly-minted “R’s” in Congress will fully stop it, let alone throw it in reverse.
Even an impeachment of Obama followed by a Republican presidential victory couldn’t/wouldn’t do that.
Not without a dramatic shift in our culture.
With very few exceptions, I say vote ’em all out.
Consider this scenario. 1. Real conservative takeover of the House of Representatives. 2. Elect a real Speaker of the House. 3. Impeach the President with conviction by a newly elected majority of the Senate. 4.Impeach the Vice-President with conviction by a newly elected majority of the Senate. 5.The new Speaker of the House becomes the new President. It’s called a constitutional revolution. All legal, all constitutional.
Um, your beloved GOP establishment, specifically Speaker of the House John Boehner, no less, has openly declared war on me personally because I belong to the Tea Party. Therefore, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want my support or my vote, because, you know, he says so. That being the case, you can retake and personally own the blame you place on those who do not vote for the GOP, alright?
GOP: SMART POWER
Narcissist in chief, leading a nation of narcissists. What he did was classless, garish, and beneath the dignity of both the office he occupies and the event he attended. Unfortunately, he’s right in step with the juvenile, self-absorbed electorate, who post pictures of their dinner on facebook, next to their pictures of their cats, squeezed between the duck lip selfies documenting any trip farther than the mailbox.
This administration is becoming more absurd than a Monty Python skit. Mocking it only seems to encourage and inspire the lefties to more outrageous and immature behavior.
The question then becomes how to position and protect yourself from an electorate that is this stupid.
Looking forward to the day when Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac is reduced to “two trunkless legs of stone” standing amid the blowing sands of history.
As presidents go, Obama is an idiot.
As balloon artists go, Obama is an idiot.
Love this board! Can’t say that enough.
Anybody notice the ++Cross++ on the dais in front of Obama? He might have overlooked it while appreciating the crescent moon and star that is also part of the design. God forbid Obama should ever have himself pictured with a ++Cross++.
If I were present in that hall with that mammoth picture of Obama, the minute I could do it I’d replace the table sitting just beneath the Lenin-esque Obama poster with an empty chair.
All I want to know is how he got the ear transplant.
When I look at the embassy picture of Obama, I can’t help but imagine that Big Brother is trying to sell me a used car.
