Many of my friends on the left consoled me last November by saying I’d probably have more fun and more material working from the opposition.
Holy crap were they right!
That is, it’s fun until this poop-flinging bunch of lefty monkeys completely dismantles the Constitution and exiles me to a patchouli camp in Berkeley.
For the moment, however, it’s an unmitigated blast watching Team Lightbringer egregiously overreach and stunningly underachieve.
There’s enough toolishness coming from the left to keep a staff of bloggers busy but I’ll stick with the topic from the previous two days: the Obama “Can’t Start ‘Em Too Young” speech on Sept. 8 and some of the uproar surrounding it.
Obama staffers arrogantly assumed they could do the Alinsky two-step and begin organizing the community while they’re still practically in utero and went ahead with a blatant attempt at indoctrinating school kids. In days gone by, the more insidious aspects of this plan would have been restricted to internal memos or kept to a word-of-mouth level. Such precautions aren’t considered by an administration and president who have spent precious little time outside of the “Cone of Sycophants”.
By now I’m sure most of you know that the professional record scrubbers (the only competent people working for this president, it seems) have flushed the most offensive portion of the lesson plan down the memory toilet.
Which, in a roundabout way, brings me to my point.
I actually watched the response to this on cable news last night. I don’t like watching cable news but I figured I could hazard it for one night without getting a rash.
The response from the Democrats was all along the lines of “But the president is only going to talk about setting goals, studying hard and being responsible!”
Of course he is. President Obama’s greatest skill as a politician is an ability to maintain plausible deniability at all times. It’s almost genetic with him. People have worried that he might be the next Jimmy Carter, I say he’s more like the next Richard Nixon.
President Obama doesn’t do the dirty or unsavory stuff. Virtually everyone around him does, however. He may not say anything over the top next Tuesday but his Secretary of Education already did that part for him.
I have had it rammed down my throat for over a year that Barack Obama is brilliant, aware and engaged. A real, hands-on type of leader, they say. For his supporters to constantly sing this song then claim that he’s above the fray every time one of his people acts like a total bunghole is a bit disingenuous.
Which is it? Is he the Smartest President In The History of EVER, or is he what you used to tell us Ronald Reagan was?
I am going to defer to the judgment of my friends on the left who have more intimate knowledge of the man they worship and say he’s brilliant.
Which means he knows exactly what goes on in his name.
The Secretary of Education told the teachers of America to make the school kids ask themselves how they could help President Obama and spelled out how they could make the children hold themselves accountable and achieve these goals.
That’s deliberate indoctrination, not an “Oops!” moment from an otherwise fair administration.
The web site may have been scrubbed but the seed has been planted for the teachers.
And they know whence the orders came.
