A President without Shame
American Thinker ^ | November 4, 2012 | Clarice Feldman

Posted on 11/04/2012 9:44:55 AM PST by jazusamo

Speaking at a photo op about the Sandy hurricane disaster, President Obama said:

"In times of crisis, "we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure we respond as a nation," Obama said, reprising one of his 2012 campaign themes.

"Whenever an American is in need, all of us stand together in providing the help that is necessary," he added."

Not only "leave nobody behind", but "providing the help that is necessary."

It was an amazingly audacious lie, prompting Grady Gibbs to post on Facebook, "The Brazilians have the perfect expression for this. There's no exact translation for 'sim vergonha,' but it means 'having no shame or pride.'"

Maybe he thought no one had caught on to the way this administration had failed Ambassador Stevens and those trapped in Benghazi, but three women journalists, at least (Fox's Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Herridge and CBS's Sharyl Attkisson ), have not forgotten those acts of incompetence, treachery and mendacity. They are being helped by countless whistleblowers that share our outrage. And it is obvious even more are coming forward every day fueled by the anger we all share at this failure to "stand together, providing the help that is necessary".

This week's top honors go to Ms. Attkisson whose work deserves your attention. I can only summarize some of the highlights of her work, and I urge you to read it all.

In the old days that was called “Rubbing your nose in it”

Odd vindication I feel on reading this.

There's a Spanish version of it, too: sin verguenza and I've always found it to express things that we, in English, once were able to say but no longer can.

My wife speaks Spanish, and I'm constantly amazed at how--the way they say things in contemporary Spanish--are identical to the classical way things would have once been said in English. This is but one example.

Was he scratching his nose with his middle finger when he said it?

He knows EXACTLY what he is doing and saying.
Glenn Beck called is “poking us in the eye”. Just like his frequent use of his middle finger.

I’d call it “[urinating] in your ear and telling you it’s raining”.

Don’t forget K. T. McFarland whose criticism of O’s blunders has been scathing.

“this luftmentsh...)

How perfectly perfect. We should use this to identify The One -

“A luftmentsh in Yiddish (the best colloquial English translation might be “airhead,” since an “airman” is an aviator) is a person of impractical nature who lives more in vague hopes and unrealizable plans than in social and economic realities and — however intelligent or charming he may be...”

Both the Spanish and Portuguese words are presumably from the Latin word verecundia meaning a sense of shame.

The Latin phrase would be sine verecundia. In Italian it would be senza vergogna and in French sans vergogne.

The definition of luftmentsh couldn’t describe the turkey in the WH much better.

A CinC With No Shame

On the first part of the journey,
I was looking at all the life.
There were plants and birds. and rocks and things,
There was sand and hills and rings.
The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz,
And the sky, with no clouds.
The heat was hot, and the ground was dry,
But the air was full of sound.

We’ve been in the desert with a CinC with no shame,
It feels good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain.
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

“ain’t no one for to give you no pain” Whut?

“America”: What a great name for a band!

I would much rather see his name ERASED from all history as with Sandusky et al.
All he did be as undone as possible and no big fat “severance” for the spose and kidlets either.
