Fresh from having Putin rub salt in his diplomatic wounds, Obama will now pivot for the nth time back to the economy:
The White House is signaling it wants to shift back to the economy after two weeks in which the Syrian crisis has dominated President Obama’s schedule and workload.
Obama will be “focusing” on issues related to the economy in the coming weeks, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday at his daily briefing.
He said the president wants to push forward with economic policies that the White House believes will grow the middle class…
I do wonder – are they just joking around with us in the White House? Was the whole purpose of Obama merely to give liberal hacks greater scope for graft – and while they’re in there, its just a matter of keeping up the appearance of governance while they loot the Treasury? Pivot back to the economy? Don’t we have a few, little things like ObamaCare, the debt limit and the 2014 budget to deal with at the moment? Obama is going to pick up where he left off two weeks ago and start giving forgetting speeches about growing the middle class? As if anyone thinks he gives a darn about the middle class?
If you wrote this as a comedy skit it would be spiked because it is too unbelievable – no President facing Obama’s problems would ever be this silly. This stupid. This absurd. The United States and the world are heading down the tubes and Obama is going to start campaigning, again…has no one noticed that the election is over and he can’t be re-elected again? Or is it just a way for his staff to keep him busy and out of trouble while they continue to steal?
January 20th, 2017 cannot come fast enough.
Oh, good grief:
White House Press Sec. Jay Carney told Fox News Channel’s Senior White House Reporter Ed Henry on Thursday that Americans appreciate President Barack Obama’s shifting approach to the Syrian crisis. He said that the American people “appreciate a president” who “doesn’t celebrate decisiveness for decisiveness’ sake.”
I’m sure of it now – they are just playing with us; seeing how long they can keep up the joke. Oh, to be sure, they’re mostly playing with the MSM…the people who get leg tingles when they think of Obama. Back in the Oval Office, it goes like this:
Carney: So, Mr. President, we’ve kinda topped off on the level of absurdity. I don’t know if we can push it any further – eventually, even those pinheads will have to figure it out.
President: Look, I’ve got a bet with Biden on this one. And, remember, he’s the guy who got the MSM to give him a pass on claiming that we and the French kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon…
President: …so you’re going to march out there and say the most ridiculous thing possible and make them swallow it!
Carney: But, what?
President: I got it – tell them I’m to be lauded for deliberately being indecisive! Tell them that its a positive virtue that I dickered around on Syria. That but for my brilliant indecision, all would have gone to heck in a hand basket. Better than Horatius at the bridge, I dithered until our enemies retreated in confusion!
Carney: No way, you’re not getting me out there to say that. I have a shred of self-respect left, sir.
President: Oh, really Mr. “Obama welcomes the debate over the NSA”?
