Skip to comments.Raindrops wash away reeling O’s fake veneer

Watching President Obama trying to dodge raindrops and responsibility yesterday reminded me of the moment when Dorothy pulls back the curtain and discovers that the Wizard of Oz is just a man. Stripped of his spell of mystery and power, the wizard is worse than mortal. Hes a fake.
So it was with Obama in the Rose Garden. His performance was tired and trite, ordinary to the point of dull. His veneer of passion was so transparent that you could see him trying to summon his old-time magic by pushing the buttons and pulling the levers that got him out of tight spots before. Folks and I and me and my stop!
The magic is gone, his act thin enough to say, as he recently did about Benghazi, that theres no there there.
Standing under an umbrella held by a Marine, Obama looked simultaneously imperious and small, no match for the rising tide of scandals swamping his presidency. At a moment that demanded genuine resolve, his answers were evasive, especially about whether he knew the IRS was politically profiling conservative groups. His response, that I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the [inspector general] report, wasnt even an artful dodge.
Serious trouble could be ahead if the president cant give a straight answer to What did you know and when did you know it?
Similarly, his attempt to duck the Benghazi fallout by suggesting that Congress didnt commit enough money for security, was, like his earlier bids to escape responsibility for the attack, preposterous and misleading.

Arrogant prick, what they couldn’t use the portico?
he is truly ridiculous
Marines sure look “embaressed” bigtime.
That image absolutely infuriates me!
You know, when I see the angle with the press sitting there uncovered in the rain, I’m reminded what an arrogant a-hole 0 is. How his useful idiots in the media continue to worship him I’ll never know.
We live in an alternative universe.
Is Bammy still supplying the Muzzie Bros. and Al Qaeda with arms for their Jihad and Caliphate development?
Can you imagine the utter disgusting feeling of having this turd touch you while at your post. Equate this to laying hands on one of the Windsor Palace guards.
In the current context this, while embarassing, is not a big deal. However, it occurs to me that he has staff who could do this or Secret Service or White House uniformed police. He really didn’t nee a brace of Marines in dress blues.
> Arrogant prick, what they couldnt use the portico?
You and I and everyone else ere in the forum that the NSA monitors knows why. It’s about displaying power. He made the manliest of men, a Marine, hold an umbrella for him in the rain. It goes right along with his Black Liiberation Theology which taught him to get even with the white race at every chance. This is no surprise. His arrogance knows no bounds.
> Marines sure look embaressed bigtime.
There is no shame in what they did if it were for a respectful president because they would be following orders given to them by the highest ranking official in the United States, however this turd in chief deserves to rained on.
It's all about OPTICS..... they look so much better than Styrofoam columns.
Is Michael Goodwin considered a conservative?
And Scrivener....make a note to the Chief Jailer to prepare accommodation for Mr Barry
and yet the audience did not require umbrellas.
