Two dropped messages

Obama acknowledges his message didn't get through

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is acknowledging in the wake of this week's election rout that he hasn't been able to successfully promote his economic-rescue message to anxious Americans.
Obama says in an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" that he "stopped paying attention" to the leadership style he displayed during his run for the presidency.
Obama also said he recognizes now that "leadership is not just legislation," and that "it's a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone. And making an argument that people can understand."
"And I think that — we haven't always been successful at that," he said. "And I take personal responsibility for that. And it's something that I've got to examine closely as I go forward."

I know just how you feel, King Barack. I have been unable to get my message through to a certain post-American president, anxious about all the retrograde citizens clinging to their guns and religion. For two years, off and on, I have promoted my rescue-the-country-from-its-government package, but said Barack "Big JuJu" Kenyatta was still campaigning for the office he had already conned himself into.

But bloggership is not legislation. It's a matter of talking sense to people, especially officeholders, including Attorneygeneral Holders, including presidents on a mission to turn the United States into a borderless EuroBureau dependency. I wanted to give you confidence, King Barack, to rise above yourself and set a tone other than skin color.

But I'm not too good at making arguments people can understand. Ask anyone who knows me. I take full responsibility for your failure, as well as the people who voted for you and your hard squad. None of you listened to me me me me me me me me … where was I I I I I? 

Oh, yes. As I go forward, ever forward, sweeping the world along with me, it's something I will examine as I go forward forward forward forward and pay attention to the bloggership style that has brought me where I am, wherever that is.

What is more important is that the message that America spelt out loud and clear on Nov 2, is not getting through to Obama.

I think he has a psychological problem.

After spending a year giving an endless number of speeches around the country and endless interviews promoting Obamacare, he says he didn't do enough to sell it, because he was so focused on the substance of the bill!

It's hard to think of an equivalent detachment from reality.

Obama is an ideologue with no real world experience outside of academia and politics. He can't face the fact that ideology and theory, no matter how fancily argued, don't really matter in the real word.

OTOH, I like that guy Allen West very much. He not only sees the danger of Islam very clearly, but also that of China.
