Outside the Asylum
While President Barack Obama and his corporate media minions have tried desperately to dodge the heat they deserve for the Pandora’s box of ills currently dominating the headlines, one of Obama’s lowlights has surfaced; and it literally defines Obama then and Obama now.
The violence abroad — in concert with rapidly declining American prestige — belies the Democrat/media narrative that President Barack Obama has ever demonstrated any more skill in the foreign arena than he clearly lacks on the domestic front.
Late last week, President Barack Obama tried mightily to make the murder of Americans and attacks on our embassies a story about Mitt Romney. When that craven political move failed, a segment I like to call the Obama Protection League chimed in to claim the unrest in the Middle East was over a movie entitled “Innocence of Muslims.”
President Barack Obama and his accomplices (including Rahm Emanuel, his former Chief of Staff and Secretary of the Ostensibly Undead and current Mayor of Chicago) are desperately treading water following another lash from the dreaded arachnid of American politics: Big Labor.
Former President Clinton wasn’t warming up the crowd for Obama; he was warming up the crowd for future President Clinton. Most of the Democrats have yet to realize it, but Clinton’s speech was no warm-up for the re-coronation of Obama. It was the opening salvo for Hillary 2016.
The quadrennial Democratic National Convention is in full swing in Charlotte, N.C. Even the so-called “Occupy” vermin have escaped their parents’ basements, packed up their bongs and their brass knuckles, and headed for the heart of the Tar Heel State.
Great achievement greatly inspires me. Great injustice greatly outrages me. And everything in between is just plain funny. Hence, today’s view from outside the asylum.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa isn’t a particularly noteworthy fellow in his own right. Despite serving as the mayor of the Nation’s second-largest city, Villaraigosa is a virtual unknown outside Democratic Party flacks and pro-illegal alien hate groups.
Welcome to Chicago, the Brady Campaign’s idea of Utopia. Chicago’s city authorities have tried desperately to restrict gun ownership by every means at their disposal. And what an idyllic paradise Chicago has become as a result — provided you ignore all the violent crime.
Let me be clear on this: I still don’t care about Mitt Romney’s tax returns. In fact, I don’t think anyone actually cares about Romney’s tax returns. The effort to make Romney’s returns an issue is transparent political gamesmanship — nothing more.
