Comments

Clarice

C'est un effondrement narcissique.

hit and run

Sen. Roberts:
If you disagree with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re attacking their motives — and [Obama] takes it that way and tends then to lecture and then gets upset.”

Obama put the temper presidential temperament.

Hell,Obama put the ass in world-class presidential temperament.

But remember,http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2008/10/the_post_partisan_easter_bunny.asp>that's not how Obama described himself.

KROFT: Why you? I mean, why do you think you would be a good president?

OBAMA: Well, I was going to get to that.

KROFT: Go ahead.

OBAMA: You know, I'm a, I'm a practical person. One of the things I'm good at is getting people in a room with a bunch of different ideas who sometimes violently disagree with each other and finding common ground and a sense of common direction.

centralcal

Snort! Great memory, hit!

Clarice

Fan-tas-tic,hit.

Bill in AZ

Wait until January when there won't be a dem/lib to be found for Zero to talk to. He is going to say or do something stupid and resign or be impeached. Then he can be a political contributor on Dan Rather Network.

peter

OT, funniest Bob Hope line ever. LUN

Stephanie says Obama sux

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
He needs to be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-oh
He needs to be sedated
Just get him to the airport put him on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before he goes insane
He can't control his fingers He can't control his brain
Oh no no no no no

Porchlight

I'd steal the valium right out of Obama's pockets if I had to be stuck in a room being lectured by our Part-Time Associate Instructor-in-Chief.

Clarice

The Hill:

"Since the oil rig exploded, the White House has tried to project a posture that is unflappable and in command.

But to those tasked with keeping the president apprised of the disaster, Obama's clenched jaw is becoming an increasingly familiar sight. During one of those sessions in the Oval Office the first week after the spill, a president who rarely vents his frustration cut his aides short, according to one who was there.

"Plug the damn hole," Obama told them. "

Jane says obamasucks

All I can say is Obama sucks.

Porchlight

"Plug the damn hole," Obama told them. "

Ooh, is that his faux "Dedicated, Tough, Hardnosed CEO" impression, or is it "Dedicated, Tough, Hardnosed Military Officer"? Or perhaps "Dedicated, Tough, Hardnosed Cowboy POTUS Predecessor"? They're so hard to tell apart.

hit and run

Obama carries himself with the poise and confidence of a seasoned asshole.

Ann

Jane:

Great to hear you had your own show today. How did it go?

I miss your podcasts. Why did you quit doing them?

Bill in AZ

Why doesn't he plug his own damn hole.

MarkO

Obama is a liar. Sublimely unqualified. Is there anyone who would not like to fight him in a dark alley?

And, "Plug the damn hole," is just another example of his command of all situations and the stuff of which we have made smart dipolmacy. Is he smart or what?

matt

let's look at Obama's playbook for a moment:

1. "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."

2. "Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat

3. "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."

5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."

6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."

7. "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time...."

8. "Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose."

9. "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."

10. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign."

11. "If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside... every positive has its negative."

12. "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

Then throw in his personality. We know there are a lot of unexplained skeletons laying around in his closet.

His support base is crumbling. He's now catching a lot of flak from the left and has lost the right and much of the middle.

Then we see him decide to take a vacation while there are 3-4 major crises at hand.All the while, said crises by any objective manner are being badly mismanaged.

We are watching him unravel, and his Vice President is even more incompetent.In addition,he is being shown to be much more brittle that he would like to have us believe.

Connecting these dots is no fun at all. He's creating crises and sowing discord among his enemies without a credible alternative or the personal stature to use the bully pulpit effectively even when his opponents can bend a little.

Some of our great presidents were able to rise above the crises of their times. He is not one of them.


Janet

"Plug the damn hole," ...and there it hangs in the air. A command. No action, no plan, just a childlike demand.
All he knows how to do is pontificate. What an empty suit.

Melinda Romanoff

matt-

Let's shorten that up a bit.

When surrounding yourself with people of action, deeds, and varied opinions, he chose professional bureaucrats, legislators and academic attorneys.

"And I expect results, people."

Hmmm. I can't imagine where the problem is...

narciso

Speaking of narcissistic personalities, this fellow, Will Folks stalking Nikki Haley, is
a real piece of work, in the LUN

Danube of Thought

A shallow, petty, vain man, utterly unsuited to any leadership role. His very worst days lie ahead of him, and none of his tried-and-true methods of avoidance will help him at all.

And I for one will savor every minute of it.

What?  Mr. Cool blows his cool?

Too bad Roberts is retiring.

Melinda Romanoff

narciso-

The Other McCain, Ace, Rhiel, et alia, are all over that one. Stunning levels of ridicule being employed. Don't go there with a full beverage unless you really feel the need to pop the keys off your keyboard.

Janet

Wow is that ever creepy narciso.
God bless whoever does Verum Serum...Ace is right, they find everything.

Manuel Transmission

Don't go there with a full beverage unless you really feel the need to pop the keys off your keyboard.

Heh. I think that gets quote of the day.

matt

PETA needs to get on this case immediately. Do the Arabs specialize in pointless, absurd acts as a matter of policy or just plain stupidity? LUN

Jane says obamasucks

Ann,

I loved it. I was nervous. When Joe called and asked me if he should cancel it I was about to say yes, since I had no time to prepare and Amy came into my office and said: "You have been waiting to do this for a year and a half, don't you dare say no".

It was actually easier than I thought. It's the transitions that are tough.

This one will be a podcast and I will post it on You too. If nothing else, I want to hear it.

Thanks for asking.

narciso

They had a similar thing in 2006, that's why I wasn't terribly surprised about the La spill, remember they are supposed to be the 'green oil compnay'

Clarice

Jane, I was certain you'd do a wonderful job at it.

Jane says obamasucks

I dunno Clarice, my neighbor said they started a pool to bet how many times I said: "breathtaking".

Clarice

Well, Jane, my hair's on fire ten times a day now--everything is so bizarre it is breathtaking. You can tell your neighbor I said so.

centralcal

hhhmmm. Isn't it interesting that the "plug the damned hole" remark, which was supposedly made during the first week, only just came out now.

The MEDIA trying really too hard to come to the rescue (based on anonymous sources, of course)? I question the timing.

Porchlight

Congrats Jane on your first solo show. I'm sure it was terrific and that you'll only gain confidence from here on out. Are there more to come?

A good ratio is to say 'breathtaking' every time you take a breath.

Here we go around with our hair on fire,
Our hair on fire,
Our hair on fire.
Here we go around with our hair on fire,
All the livelong day.

JorgXMcKie

I think the best way to "Plug the damn hole" would be to shove Obama's puffed up cranium into it.

I probably wouldn't be allowed to do that, though. Probably just as well.

I was afraid we'd get another Carter. Little did I know the depths of incompetence we'd be plumbing.

bgates

If you disagree with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re attacking their motives

But it shouldn't preclude the possibility!

Janet

Your conversational tone was great Jane. Humor, and you sounded at ease. Loved the ponytail story...local angle on the oil spill.
I didn't even notice your use of "breathtaking"...maybe because I would agree!

Ann

Jane:

You have a remarkable friend and business partner. I keep telling my daughter, if you find one friend like that you are blessed and you are. Keep listening to her.

Wow, I am just so excited for you and me. I get to hear Jane without Dick. :)

I love your website, your radio podcasts and your unbridled, down to earth patriotism.

Keep us updated when you are solo. You could have the best call-in commentary surpassing even RUSH if you give JOM a heads up. ::wink::

Go get em Jane!

When you sing your own praises, you are apt to be critiqued on your lyrics and not just your voice.

Will he be gifting karaoke machines next?

I shudder to think of the songs he would include in a gift for the Queen...

Another example of 'acting stupidly' by the clean toga/creased pants brigade, in the LUN

Btw this is what I meant in the earlier BP
post, in the LUN

Melinda Romanoff

Okay, this is an interesting place for a Murtha bash to take place.

Still open investigations, hmmmm.

Janet

I hope they continue on with the Murtha investigation...Rep. Jim Moran here in No.VA was all intertwined with Murtha. Both crooks.

Good one Kim...a new nursery rhyme for children born in the age of Obama!

Ah, kim, the Estes Tiki torch. Or the Fake Amy Winehouse story.

Janet

Somebody stop me.

LOL!
Here I go looking for hair plugs,

Here I go looking for hair plugs,
But Biden beat me to them.

Melinda Romanoff

Fine, Janet.

Biden only parts his thin hair when someone with bad tonal and poetic sense will lick it into place.

You. First.

G'night all.

Stephanie says Obama sux

Don't hate me 'cause I got it goin' on
It's just me, I'm hot never cold
I can rock it anyway that I choose
I'm so good (Oh yeah)
I make up all the rules

I can't help it if I set all the trends
Everybody wants to be my best friend
It's infectious, come on don't you be jealous
Just join in this love fest
You know that...

It's all about me
It's all about me (Oh yeah)
Me, myself and I
It's all about me
It's all about me [You know it's all about me]
It's all about me, me, me me me
Everybody knows i'm fly [You know it's all about me]
it's all about me

Wait, before his election, I was assured by the MSM that he was 'no drama Obama'.

So far what we've gotten is a thin-skinned, teenage drama queen.

Hit & Run,

An outstanding run of fine comments today. Would you please consider unemployment again? It may be hell on you, the wife, and the Hittites, but man, for we JOMer's the more daily Hit input, the better...Perhaps a Sabbatical?

What shifty bundle of sticks.

Heh, I called him the 'Tan Mussolini' over at some moonbat's site.
======================

Of course, he's added a few post modern curlicues to the edifice.

He was slamming Sarah for insinuating that Obama is too close to 'Big Oil' and I laughed and told him that just because he hasn't figured out that his fella is a corporatist of the Italian fascist variety that doesn't mean that Sarah hasn't. Heh.
======================

Paging Dr. Strong.  Code Stern STAT.

But that's a very interesting game she's playing. It sounds likes she's figured out that 'Big Oil' was big in the gang of thieves which almost got away with the greatest jewel heist of all time, but the transmission fell out of the getaway vehicle at one look at the little darlin' on the Kobenhaven waterfront.

Kim,

Fun Talk Radio today up here.

The story about the creepy negative reporter moving in next door to Sarah Palin was a fun topic and the consensus is that the guy is a full fledged creepy Peeping Tom slimeball. Hope it has legs and that we keep getting daily reports of the rotten sunuvabitch harassing the Palins.

Just FYI, local Media tried to contact the useless SOB today but no comment. Any suggestions if I happen to be driving around her neighborhood?

This story tells us that ">http://washingtonscene.thehill.com/in-the-know/36-news/4309-barney-frank-wants-to-see-rep-djous-birth-certificate"> Barney Frank has demanded to see newly elected Hawaiian Rep Charles Djou's Birth Certificate.

Oh please, please, please, please, please, please, please don't throw us Birther's into 'dat der' Briar Patch B'rer Frank.

And in other New England News today, I see Chris Dodd blamed the BP Gulf Oil Spill on George Bush. Did you guys happen to see whether he specified Bush Junior or Bush Senior? I missed it, but If it was "W" I'm kinda' bummed, as Papa Bush was the real Oilman of the family, and if Dodd could only jump through time and illegitimately pin the rap on the 2004 Bush instead of the 1988 version, I think he's got a serious anachronism deficit to go along with his deficits in decency, honesty, integrity, intelligence, imagination and character.

"Why doesn't he plug his own damn hole."
Posted by: Bill in AZ

Thank you Mr. Bill in AZ.

My sentiments exactly! I am heartily sick to death of turning on any electronic device that has been invented and seeing or hearing Zero. No matter what time of the day or night - there he is - a ghastly recuring nightmare - from which there seems to be no escape.

I'm the one who needs the valium - there is no way in hell any kind of a pill could help him.

U.S. National Debt per taxpayer: $118,000.

That's a good radio subject, Jane.

Yawn. Anybody can say "Plug the Damn Hole."

Wake me when Obama starts to ask "Withering questions." That's when I'll start paying attention.

Janet

How bout a blanketing of our nation with signs - Secure the Damn Border!

I see the Tennessee house is supporting Arizona's law. LUN

Jane

Are there more to come?

Porch,

I have no idea. I keep expecting them to cancel the only political show on the station but they haven't yet.

Ann you are just so sweet. And you are dead right about Amy. She is the best - and a great lawyer too.

Janet,

The hair thing is really weird isn't it. It's that UU thing I think. Don't tell Obama or he will pass a law that we all must go bald.

Here's a sign idea:

PLUG THE DAMN HOLE

Great idea Bob! That is my next Tea Party sign! We need another HUGE Tea Party. Keep up the momentum...encourage each other.

LUN is that great video Ann pointed out.

Rob Crawford

"Plug the damn hole," Obama told them. "

Wow. Such vision! Such brilliance!

Such bullshit. This guy has never done anything remotely real in his life.

and arguably nothing even functional.

So Barry O asks repub Senators for "bipartisanship" (defined by Barry O as doing what he and Nancy say); then Barry O and his entourage fly out to california on Air Force I, like some kind of modern Henry VIII river barge, to raise filthy lucre for that old botox riddled hag Barbara Boxer. At the fundraiser he proceeds to goof on thoee very same Repub Senators. Barry O is a punk, an immature nasty little punk. Back in the day he obviously avoided the schoolyard beat down all teenage punks need to straighten them out. Pity. Is it too late now?

discountcoachhandbag

All I can say is Obama sucks.People who wear mbt shoes will improve them.

squaredance

Ignore that man behind the curtain...

1) Obama is a front man; it is not "his agenda". This agenda will proceed more or less that same without him.

2) Obama is a malignant narcissist; he most likely also has "Borderline Personality Disorder" as well. His behavior in this case is quite literally a clinically defined "marker" for these sort of afflictions.

3) Because of #1, #2 is a feature and not a bug, so far as his masters are concerned. This is in fact one of the reasons he was chosen.

Moreover, should he break down in office, or is even assassinated in office, it plays into their hands--these are well considered contingencies and all a part of the calculations of their assualt.

No matter what shape Obama's depravity takes or how it is faced, it all further cripples and corrupts the institutions, traditions and morale of the nation, and undermines trust and reputation abroad. It exhausts us on insanities, absurdities and trivialities while the final thrust is made elsewhere.

The point is, this is why he was put forward in the first place. It is not about politics, it is about warfare. This is a distinction that seemingly can not be grasped here.

The goal is to externally and internally destroy American power, credibility and America as a nation, polity and society. It has absolutely nothing to do with Obama taking a "chill pill" and "learning to behave professionally". Few formulations could be more absurd.

It is, however, all too "chilling" to watch all this for, as any student of the fall of the Roman Republic knows, the Roman Senate, often with Cicero himself as the leading voice, so admonished in their turn Clodius, Pompey, Caesar, Anthony and Octavian in the crises leading up to the fall of the Republic.

At first the Senators then were rather pleased with their wit too. Later, not so much.

Obama is surely our Clodius, not our Caesar; we may not even get a Caesar as degenerate as we have become. Rest assured that we will get our Pompey, Anthony and, most especially, our Octavian if this goes much further.
Pitifully, we shall have neither Empire or Golden Age as a solace. We will not have a nation.

....

And of course TM smirkingly shirks from "El Rushbo"--TM is is really just another immoral "moderate" who is concerned with style over substance. He, like so many here, just does not realize it. Most of you would vote Democrat if they told you the just the right lie. You do, after all, vote GOP.

His wit and yours, like that of Cicero, will avail of little at the end.

At least Cicero pass something of value down to our civlization.
