Chairman Zero in Command

With the world in tumult, it's reassuring to see Comrade Obama's firm hand on the wheel. Here's his forceful response to the people of Iran rising up against the demented authoritarian regime that has been building nuclear weapons explicitly to blow us up with:


Uh ah political process uh uh ah uh uh uh diplomacy uh uh uh ah uh core set of uh uh uh national security interests uh ah uh uh quack quack quack uh uh ah uh having said that uh ah ah uh uh uh uh why can't I just eat my uh waffle?

Let me guess: the teleprompter is at the shop.

We're supposed to regard this clueless jackass as the leader of the free world.

On a tip from mega.

The election of Barack Obama guarantees that Iran will become a nuclear power. They will play him like they played Jimmy Carter, and he will fall for it. The only thing standing in the way of Iran getting nukes is Israel. Unlike the USA, Israel has a real leader who will not get played by Iran. Benjaman Netanyahu is the only world leader who has the cajones to stand up to this. If he acts, it is up to people like us to stand with him. Go for it Bibi! The people of the USA will stand with you, even if our punk president will not.

He is just so utterly in WAY over his head. Events are taking an explosive life of their own and leaving him stuttering in the dust.

He is such an embarrasment to inteclects!

This is what an Ivy League education produces. 'The Comunity Organizer in Chief'.

Not as many "uhs" and "duhs" as I was expecting, but it took him 4:39 to say absolutely nothing. And when he did string together a coherent phrase he was lying. For example, he respects free speech about as much as I respect him as a human being - and that amounts to a big, fat ZERO!

Huh? What did he say? I fell asleep less than halfway through again! This is why I had a difficult time getting through college! I always thought I was just stupid, but it was actually because the pontificating professors were lecturing for hours about absolutely nothing! How can one make sense out of 4-1/2 minutes of double-nothing-speak?!

I think Obama would like to just give Iran the nukes if it would only get the whole subject off the front burner so he can get back to destroying America. The man has priorities and what his brother Muslims are doing over there isn't one of them.

This is the President of the United States?

We are so screwed.

Compare this weak moralizing to Ronald Reagan's speech "Tear Down This Wall". Those kool aid drinkers that have compared Obama to Reagan are clearly just false propagandists.

Obama just made the US the issue when it wasnt. The issue is about Iranian voter fraud and suppression of the freedom of speech. What the hell is this US-centric crap?

"Change You Can Believe In", means that the US is no longer a champion of freedom. Our own leader is now self-doubting of his leadership and the right to liberty for the people of our planet over the worldwide popularity of his presidency.

There has been no question before this crisis that everything Obama says that he is deeply troubled by, has been going on in Iran for decades. The "universal values of the democratic process including free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent" have not been respected by the Iranian government and are nothing new.

It is apparent that he will do nothing in this mindset to challenge the Iranian government and support the cause of freedom. He must start pursuing the "tough and direct dialog" that he falsely claims to have already taken.

Now is the time Mr. President... The loss of nerve is not a trait of leadership.

Great strategy, The Bama will bore them to death. He will give one of his famous Ah, uh thuppppt speeches.

Yes folks whats next sock puppets?

Bama...Like President Reagan Please, Bama is not fit to clean Reagan shoes.

I would call that a textbook example of duckspeak, but the delivery was too slow, as in "at the speed of smell" slow. This is a man with no plan. He apparently believes he can cure the ills of the world by saying, "can't we all just get along?"

And another thing, why do we have no intelligence regarding what happened during the election? Was Panetta too busy accusing Cheney of wanting us to be attacked to put some resources into monitoring this pivotal event?

Posted by: Judith M. at June 16, 2009 4:39 AM

I think we all know how W would have handled this.

For all his faults he was able to identify injustice and encourage change from within.

Obama seems to be saying "Let's not get too carried away with this democracy thing" and asking people to accept the fabricated result as if nothing had happened.

In response to Kurt at the top ("They will play him like they played Jimmy Carter, and he will fall for it"), I don't believe Obama is falling for anything. He is willfully enabling this. And in the future the mullahs know that they will be able to count on him to diplomatically look the other way anytime the need to tighten the screws in the future.

Yea, George W was always good for bringing the protest babes out into the streets. I think we are done seeing much more of that for awhile.

"....we respect Iranian sovereignty...."
Like Iran respects Israel's?

I'll bet he was a horrible lecturer at the University of Chicago. If you've ever wondered why none of his students have ever been interviewed about taking his class, the last two CNN clips posted provide a clue.

Posted by: Judith M. at June 16, 2009 5:27 AM

the textbook for his class was "rules for radicals"

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
What right wing whacko said that?

I never tire of watching the Obamanation bounce from brain-freeze to incoherent phrase. His performing monkey act is quite entertaining even if no one understands what he is talking about, including Obama.

His lackluster performances do provide insight as to why his college transcripts are such a well kept secret. I highly suspect his academic success leans more towards false advertising than actual achievement.

Posted by: Lord Crimson at June 16, 2009 5:53 AM

Want to know why he continues to get a free pass? Watch Media Malpractice, it'll make your blood boil.

Whenever I hear Obama speak all I hear is Mrs. Donovan, Charlie Brown's teacher. Remember her? Blah, blah, blah, blah, move swiftly, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, move boldly, blah, blah, blah, blah, I am not a crook.

Color is irrelevant and does not automtically render one from criticism. A jackass is a jackass!
Got that, PC police?

Sorry. "... does not automatically render one IMMUNE from criticism."

Posted by: Nick at June 16, 2009 6:51 AM

I couldnt help but notice B.O. forgot to condemn the shootings of protestors... I guess he wouldnt want to upset his masters.

Well, at least smilin' Jimmy Carter is on hand to offer helpful advice, such as maybe B.O. should remove Hamas from the terrorist org list.

Posted by: Jeffery Wright at June 16, 2009 6:52 AM

Horrible. And I know the young Iranian people looked to the U.S. as their last great hope. See that wither and die because of this weak, naive little man child.

(Transcript was LOL funny.)

Posted by: Karin at June 16, 2009 7:21 AM

I have a hard time believing anyone would think the US could rescue anyone right now. Took Obama four days to decide it was okay to plug pirates holding an American captain hostage in an open boat. Ordering an invasion of a foreign country? Don't make me laugh.

This scumbag isn't the leader of my world!

A ringing endorsement of democracy by the Wizard of Uhs.

God I wished Soros had installed someone who could speak extemporaneously. Bush was bad, but this clown makes him look like William F. Buckley.

Let's face it, Obama couldn't lead sailors to a whorehouse.
