Obama Sycophant of the Day

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at October 27, 2009 6:27 AM

Rocco Landesman, PBO's handpicked chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, displays the verbal butt-kissery that won him his position.

This is the first president that actually writes his own books since Teddy Roosevelt and arguably the first to write them really well since Lincoln. If you accept the premise, and I do, that the United States is the most powerful country in the world, then Barack Obama is the most powerful writer since Julius Caesar. That has to be good for American artists.

Scott Johnson of Powerline notes that not only is this ridiculous praise, it's also inaccurate. Several presidents since Teddy Roosevelt have written books, including Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, and B.J. Clinton.

It's also probably racist to point out that Wilson and Nixon wrote about politics, Hoover wrote about fishing, JFK wrote Profiles in Courage (though his authorship, like Obama's, is disputed), while narcissists BJ Clinton and PBO only ever wrote about themselves.

But this is the kind of accuracy one has come to expect from the community-based reality.

Too bad Obama's books were ghostwritten by Bill Ayers.

Man, Tony beat me to the punch. But I will be the first to make this inquiry, since Prezbo does not write his own books, does he even read his own books? For the libs out there, I am not insinuating he can't read I am just wondering if the manliest president ever* (how I typed that with a straight face I will never know) has actually read the books he did not write.

*BTW: The Anointed One won the Nobel Peace Prize and greater Bikini Bottom veggie burger cook-off.

I know that there is no such thing as an original thought, however a lesder must have a body of work on which to base his writting and some direction for the future. Apparently BO's prerequisite is a solid background in Chickagu thuggery, Mob rule, and good old Crip politics.

All Hail Caesar! (...and they wonder why we can't tell the difference between their serious stuff and their satire).

BO has been aided and groomed by the left-wing strategists to step into privileged, wealthy and powerful political positions.
To expect that we commoners should believe that while everything BO has, he has been given, but that his (awful) books were a product of his own effort, is an insult.

Most powerful writer since Julius Ceasar??? Oh, nevermind the writings that spawned revolutions, including our own. Seriously, is this from the Onion?

I'm surprised he could talk with Chairman Zero's cock in his mouth.

I've noticed anything the one does well, someone else does for him. Ever notice how the Real men of the presidency had lunch with the enlisted troops. They also were honored to be there.
This fool is the manliest man? I'd hate to see the standard by which they measure.
This is Tofu Birkenstock, reporting from under the bed.

Google Jack Cashill! Obama did'nt write his own books. Ayers did.

Posted by: bullwhacker at October 27, 2009 8:59 AM

Ergo, Bill Ayers is the most powerful writer since Julius Caesar? Yikes!

The clueless Bill Clinton's book, "My Life" shares the same title with Fidel Castro's autobiography (he was and is a communist thug) and Leon Trotsky's autobiography (he was a Russian communist revolutionary).

BTW there's no way either Bill or Hillary wrote much at all of their own books.
(Hillary's was "It Takes A Village"---a narcissist fascist manifesto).

BO's "books" come from the liberal tradition of chronic deception and prevarication and anyone who takes them seriously is a moron.

It is simultaneously fascinating and horrifying to watch liberals grovel and degrade themselves so shamelessly. For some reason, Reds go in big for personality cults, despite otherwise deprecating individuals over the state. What next? Obama swimming the Potomac at some ridiculous speed, like Mao swimming the Yangtze?

You'd think they'd be embarrassed to utter such sycophantic drivel, but then you'd be wrong.

Further to this point, I don't understand how people who consider themselves hip, "with it" cynical political sophisticates can so easily indulge in adolescent hero worship that would a 14 year old girl reading "Tiger Beat" guffaw at their naivete.

and that is if BHO even actually wrote his own book.
