Obama’s Growing Problem

Despite being handed a book deal on the topic, the First Lady is, in this singular instance, honest enough to acknowledge that she doesn’t possess a green thumb and her rather high profile garden in the White House’s South Lawn hasn’t been a spectacular success.

Sadly for America, her husband is no better and definitely doesn’t have a green thumb either.

That’s not to say he has a black thumb, meaning that he kills all he tries to grow. He’s been quite effective at growing one thing, the National Debt. I’d guess you’d say that the boy’s got a “red thumb.” All that he can grow is debt and outlay. 😉

A Gloomy Forecast

It’s a bit of a gloomy forecast for Obama and his handlers and overseers. The climate just isn’t cooperating with the boy and he had to move his acceptance speech from Bank of America Stadium, which seats 73,298 to to the Time Warner Cable Arena, which seats only 22,000.

Of course, there’s currently a lot of speculation that the “climate” in question was the political climate as opposed to Charlotte, NC’s weather.

My guess is that it’s a combination of both factors. Obama’s incessant excuses are a piss-poor umbrella against the storm of disillusionment and bitterness that the boy’s facing from the Left, and neither his shucking and jiving nor his tap-dancing will save him from a soaking this time. This means that it’s far more likely that the threat of inclement weather would keep too many attendees away for it to be a “proper” political event.

There’s a certain sense to that. Obama has consistently and utterly failed to both lead and to inspire since being installed as POTUS. The Campaigner-in-Chief, once forced out of his comfort zone and faced with being accountable for a deliverable for possibly the first time in his life, fell flat on his face.

Don’t Look, Just Go Forward. Ignore The Man With The Air Hammer

And the boy’s only response was the same as the primary plank of his 2008 platform, blame President Bush and, when that is too far-fetched for even his constituents, blame the GOP, the productive Americans, or anyone else he or his handlers can find.


Presidential Taglines – And Obama’s As Well

Sadly for Obama and his cronies, blamecasting only works for so long before people – even Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants – grow weary of it and want results. Being a whining, little crybaby is just a litany of failure and that doesn’t inspire followers. Results do that.

The whole thing is, however, a fitting reprise of the boy’s 2008 acceptance speech as the only warming trend and the only sea level he’s lowered is that of his own acceptance and support by his base. 😉

Obama’s Deficit

Obama proving that education and intelligence are unrelatedThe Campaigner-in-Chief’s deficit might soon become a problem if it isn’t reined in very quickly and firmly.

No, not our nation’s deficit, which Obama has blithely hiked to previously unheard of and ruinously unsustainable levels in less than one term. His 2012 reelection campaign budget is his current problem, and it’s one deficit that he might actually care about.

The Obama Campaign spent more in May than it raised! The boy’s campaign and the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee with the Democratic National Committee, raised over $54 million last month, but they spent $69 million, creating a $15 million deficit.

It seems that Obama and his handlers run a campaign in the same way that they run a government. 😆
