HnC Vault: Mister Polite

Originally published June 17, 2009

Nobody likes a buttinsky, so our President is doing his best to avoid "meddling" in any situation which doesn't increase his personal power. Plus, after just excusing a Black Panther for intimidating white voters with a nightstick, he doesn't want to look like a hypocrite just because a few Iranian voters get beaten. Or worse.

Update 4/3/2011

This week, Barack Obama made a speech (following his Brazilian vacation) explaining that he committed the U.S. military to operations in Libya because America is a beacon of freedom, a light of hope, and a friend to all who battle in liberty's name. In fact, it was such a rousing speech that it would be easy to almost forget that this is the same man who sat around with a thumb up his ass when faced with a similar (but vastly more important) scenario in Iran almost two years ago.

Without American support...or even encouragement...the protestors in Iran soon lost their bloody struggle. And today, Iran continues to be one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

But who knows - maybe this new and improved, guns a-blazin', freedom loving, manly man of an alleged president will kick Iran's butt next time he gets a chance!

As long as it isn't, you know, "meddling."

News flash for you, Stilt: It wasn't his thumb. It was his head. And it's still there...

You're right, Louis, his head is so far up his ass, he's become a contortionist. Which is a nicer way of explaining the difference between what he said during the campain and what he's doing now than saying "He lied." Aw hell, let's just say it flat out, "Mister President, YOU LIE!"

I guess protecting our borders is "meddling" too.

Say, didn't he win a medal for his mettle to meddle so metal is not used by dictators on their own people? Maybe the man is confused by which word is meant? He is confused on other words, oh, "corps" and "corpse," for instance.

As for what's up where, I think it's gerbils. And they tickle, apparently, for he's a giggling idiot.

Wow...almost two years later, and no hope and especially NO CHANGE in Obama's rhetoric and way of doing things! To me, that means, whatever his agenda is (we kinda know what that is),well, his agenda is still his mobivation. Meddling or not.
