Friday Follies: SOTU circus, Fruit Loops interviews, and another Netanyahu snub

January 23, 2015

Obama’s favorite journalist?

A State of the Union address written on Fantasy Island and delivered in the Circus Maximus, a green lipsticked bathtub eating fruit loops mutation interviews POTUS and our petulant Prez throws spitballs at Netanyahu while the world burns around us………..Tis that time once again when we take stock of the inane and foolish put upon us by those forced to navigate life with an amount of gray matter just slightly larger than that found in your average toad.

Long after the EBT cards no longer scan and the grass grows lush across the graveyard of the free stuff civilization, historians will write that one of, if not the, worst week of demeaning the office of the Presidency of the United States was the third week of January, 2015.

Obama’s SOTU a Circus Maximus for the Ages

I opened Thursday’s JGlobe print column on the latest State of the Union address with a passage to remind readers that human civilization has seen the type of behavior coming out of the current administration before…….and it didn’t end well.

In ancient Rome the political class kept the masses in check (and their own heads attached to their shoulders) by giving out free grain and putting on regular Circus Maximus extravaganza’s to keep the people’s attention distracted from the factual misery that was their daily lives.

Readers of this column are no doubt still on double dosage of the blood pressure medication.

You can read every State of the Union address to this nation back to Washington’s first, and you’ll not find another more full of misleading statements, fantastical claims, and flat out lies.

There were 3 themes:

  1. Americans should not believe the still very real economic hardships they are enduring because Obama says all is fine, so all IS fine. Full stop. Period.
  2. Under Obama’s “leadership” all those videos of ISIS beheadings, Islamic terrorism across the globe, and world maps being redrawn with Crimea now as Russian vs Ukrainian are to be ignored. American strength and diplomacy is working. Not because it is, but because he says it is.
  3. Climate Change, as in that grand global wealth re-distribution scheme known as “man made” climate change will destroy the planet if America does not immediately put herself at an economic disadvantage against every other nation on earth for the sake of reducing green house gasses by a level that even the government paid scientists admit won’t make a dent in the overall happenings.

YouTube stars interview Obama and things get weird

The CNN headline pretty much says it all.

Mediaite has a clip of Howard Kurtz and Megyn Kelly discussing the debacle:

And not just for any interview, Kurtz noted, but for the president’s first post-State of the Union interview. He likened this to a “D-list Hollywood after party,” while Kelly wondered if she should be more like GloZell if she ever hopes to get to interview President Obama.

I know I should write more on the insanity, I know I should expose more of the hypocrisy of the entire sordid affair but I can’t. The sadness I feel for this nation and the office of the Presidency that has had the types of Washington, Lincoln, Eisenhower, JFK and Reagan be now reduced to an Alinsky/Frank Marshal-Davis community organizer preaching division is very deep and very real.

Keith Koffler, publisher of the venerable White House Dossier website somehow managed to hold it together and explained it perfectly:

The White House Thursday was officially declared a “Laughingstock” and will be demolished by the Department of Interior within a month, officials said today.

The proximate cause of the declaration was the White House decision to take the presidency to a brand new low, inviting in three absurdly unqualified and generally ridiculous people to interview the president of the United States.

If you wish more on this sordid chapter in Presidential history, just Google “Obama You Tube interviews” and you’ll see just how low Obama can go.

And with that, a segway to this weeks Folly number 3:

Obama sits down with YouTube stars but won’t meet Netanyahu

Between the news that British Prime Minister David Cameron has been actively lobbying members of Congress over sanctions against Iran during the perpetual negotiations that he and O have put so much faith in and having to listen to Obama’s fantasy view of world affairs during the SOTU, Speaker of the House John Boehner finally decided enough is enough and unilaterally invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress to add some truth into the debate.

Needless to say, the paper-thin skinned Obama was furious and has now let the world know that neither he nor Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with Mr. Netanyahu while in Washington.

The official line is that it’s too close to Israeli elections, but with the WH having no problem with Cameron’s pro let the world know that neither he nor Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with Mr. Netanyahu WH policy lobbying, that official line is as believable as a Red Line in Syria.

A huge “thank you” goes to actor Rob Lowe for doing what so few in Hollywood will ever do: Call out Obama on his hypocrisy.

From the Jerusalem Post:

How is it that a woman famous for eating cereal in a bathtub can get an audience with US President Barack Obama, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to do so? asked Rob Lowe on Twitter.

Among the Hollywood actor’s famous roles, is that of Deputy White House Communications Director in the television show The West Wing.

On Friday, Lowe entered a real-life diplomatic drama, when he weighed in on one of the most serious crises in the often infamous series of political battles that have raged between Obama and Netanyahu in the last six years.

Lowe mocked Obama for a live streamed meeting he held Thursday with three YouTube stars, GloZell Green, Hank Green and Bethany Mota.

If you click any of this weeks links, make sure to click the Post story as it contains Lowe’s tweets and will give you at least a glimmer of hope that perhaps maybe, just maybe, Obama’s demeaning of the office has reached bottom.

After all, if Obama loses Hollywood, all he’s got left are high schoolers and college coeds.

SUMMARY

The worst part of all of the above is not that we still have two more years of a President fully dedicated to continuing his delusional demagoguery, but that there is a both a size able percentage of the public and a press that promotes it.

To be honest, this past week has been the most depressing since the absolute wasteland of disbelief I wandered the week following Obama’s re-election in 2012. – How could so many, be so ignorant for so long?

But what scares me most these days, is that every week I start off thinking there is no way Obama could take the office any lower or things get any worse – And then he does, and then they do.

As always, have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by and I’ll see ya round the Corner.
