This, friends, is an astonishing statement:
Perhaps now this will change. Is it possible to defend the president who is bugging your phone, whose IRS is knocking at the door of political opponents, who still refuses to tell us what he was doing on September 11, 2012, while American were dying under brutal siege?
Barack Obama is an American president, not a hero or icon. Presidents make mistakes. We’ll all be a lot better off if this can start a more realistic assessment of his strengths and weaknesses, his good days and his bad. Anything less is a disservice to the man, to the office, and, most important, to the public.
To be clear – heh & heh – this is the same crew that viewed the man as a demigod a few years ago. The idea that this question is being asked – “is it possible to defend the president who is bugging your phone, whose IRS is knocking at the door of political opponents, who still refuses to tell us what he was doing on September 11, 2012…” is remarkable in its What The Fuck??? stupidity. If this were not Barack Obama, calls for the guillotine would be forthcoming.
Most other Donkeys couldn’t escape this incompetence, but The Lightbringer Cometh, yo.
It was creepy, it remains creepy and it will continue to be creepy how subservient Obamabots are regarding said Dear Leader. The man is either incompetent or beyond corrupt – probably both, oddly, in my view – but this idea that “is it possible?” is absurd: sure, defend away, champ, but the POTUS was, is, and forever will be what he is – an empty suit who raises $$ and spouts rhetoric. Deflect, deny, more deflect, more deny, the smartest man in the room being the most ignorant of the day’s comings and goings.
Jeebus. He’s my POTUS too, hence the “we’re fucked” sense of my analysis.
