Obamaria--"I Feel Pretty!"


Obamaria--"I Feel Pretty"
By VerityINK

We are watching the rise-to-fame-flame that is Obama. Like a rocket newly launched, we can't help but crane our necks as it leaps into the sky, better to see if it will flame out and burn up, and fall back into the ashes. But the thing that will bring Obama down is the same thing that has always brought the gods down--their own hubris.

Obama has made a fateful mistake--one that few understand he's made: He has shown the world that he believes his own advanced billing, he reads his own press notices, he is swayed by the publics' opinion of him.

Before this 2008 election season warmed up, before the MSM started playing it's elaborate game of "oh-you-so-wonderful!", Obama was in no mind to run for the presidency. No, he, quite rightly concluded in 2004, it was, I think, that he was 'too young', too 'inexperienced'; he, himself, proclaimed he 'did not know the ways of Washington'. That soon changed however, and he showed the public a fateful thing; we could tell him who he was--and he'd believe us!

One of the things the Left hates George W. Bush for--probably the most egregious thing he's done--has been to show the public that he is impervious to their demands, their influence. He is guided by a wholly different template. President Bush has shown that he does not read a lot of the press about himself, he doesn't listen to the MSM--he's even told them that 'their opinions don't inform his political thoughts'! LOL! That why he pisses them off so completely.

The public-at-large would much better like a flipflopper like Kerry (before it before he was against it), or a lip-biter like Clinton (not sure what 'is' is), or a ditherer like Edwards (hiring/firing/rehiring staffers) than someone over whom they have no influence.

The only real power the people have (apart from our collective power at the polls) is the power to bulldoze public opinion. How delicious it evidently is to get a Joe Biden on the dais, gabbling out one 'clean black' apology after another, while Hillary backs up and continually reparks her position on Iraq hoping for a better n' better space, and Edwards can't even handle hiring a non-sewer derivative blog staff! The public loves to see the contradictions in such things. It loves to see the power it has in influencing how politicians act--even how they feel about themselves!

And so it is with Obama. We have taken this young man and brought him from a position of not wanting, or feeling ready for the presidency, to completely over-estimating himself. We've shown him who has the real power when you're in the public eye. We've let him know that as long as he listens to us, we will make or break him--and unfortunately, he has acquiesced. Like a marionette, we hold his strings. He doesn't know it yet, but he will find out, that those strings can quickly move from one hand to the other.

The shame of it is is that we need a man to be president who already knows who he is and does not listen to the media, public opinion, or games of "gosh-he's-great!" Oh, such a man will be hated for that characteristic--as they always are--but that is what America needs. Audacity and hope are just other words for the brash wishful thinking that is Barack Hussein Obama.

Ya, but he also lost because we all know he's a muslim. That's the crux of the matter.

Shades of Clintoon and other Dhimmiratic nobodies!!!!

I would agree with you on this one. The MSM is making so much more out of him than he is!!

What record does he have for anything?? Only that he is a small time politician who may not be as dirty as many others!!!

E, simply another reason he'll loose...

Well, Eyes, I would agree with you, though I don't even know how to adequately address his muslim upbringing LOL!

Kuhnkat--Ain't it the truth! His best qualification is that he doesn't have dirty shoes! LOL!

As I've said elsewhere, millions of Americans wake up every day wondering what Barack Hussein Obama stands for, including Barack Hussein Obama.

Remember that in 1976 no one had ever heard of Jimmy Carter. And never underestimate Americas short memory and facisnation with ''new faces'' and brashness and boldness,i.e. Someone who looks good and talks a good game. I think what will end up happening is a Clinton/Obama ticket. J'Mac.

We know for sure that he's all for a surge of troops in Baghdad as long as they're Australian troops (because American troops are a waste) and that he doesn't like people who make fun of his big ears.

Obama is wasting his time. Bill Clinton and those loyal to him control a substantial number of superdelegate votes and there is no way Hillary will lose at the convention. But even if Obama did win the Democratic nomination, the GOP would have to field Osama bin Laden to lose against him unless most Americans have lost their minds.

Just from the past few weeks, it is also clear Obama is way out of his depth and I do not believe most of that is due to inexperience.

But if Obama's run is a waste of time, what about "Reverend" Al Sharpton???

It is all Carter's fault.

After him EVERYONE CAN BE PRESIDENT and still be more suitable for the job than the THE LUSTING IN HIS HEART AFTER ARAB MONEY , Jimmah.

He's reveling in the adoration.

Obama is the media's darling these days. But he did stick his foot in his mouth a few days back regarding the Iraq War. I'm not sure that he'll be on the Democratic ticket, come November 2008. Of course, I a lot can happen between now and then.

About Obama's religious affiliation....He is a member of the United Church of Christ. Check the UCC web page. Other members include Howard Dean. The Wiki page is also interesting.

Obama and Dean belong to the same church? Oh, THAT'S rich!

That's a wonderful article DONAL! I really like it when you write. Obama has real potential as a pol, he may end up as slick as Hill's ner-do-well in a future election. You're right, he has yet to learn humility and that'll cost him in 08. My guess is that Hill will pick Richardson as her VP in order to try to win NM and AZ and to help in TX. Osama Obama is a FUTURE candidate. The only thing that could derail that is a gay picture of him and another guy.

Thank you, kind sir. I sat in bed at 4:30 this a.m. and, by the time I'd thought 2 paragraphs of that, I figured I'd better go type it out and see if it had any legs. By the time Paul got up for his breakfast, it did!

Yes, somehow, I don't think Hilly wants to share the spotlight with 'Bammy. I think she'd be too afraid of constantly being upstaged. She's had enough of standing in a man's shadow with Bill--she's not gonna sign up Bambi.. uh 'Bammy.

Hey, Jingo is right - that's one of the best things you've done. Good job. I think you've nailed one of his character flaws. Those who let themselves be the king in a "kingmaker" movement can so easily find themselves on the down slope of that process. La Bamba doesn't know that yet.

ROFLMAO1 Beamish, you got that right. Bam must look in the mirror and wonder who it is that's looking back at him. I wonder, does he have to be reintroduced to himself every a.m.?

while Hillary backs up and continually reparks her position on Iraq hoping for a better n' better parking space--Donal, that was priceless!

Thank you, Cassie--I was trying to think up some imagery to describe her and that just came to mind!
