If history has ever once recorded a time when reality suborned itself to a plan, then history is a liar.
I’d planned on doing the near-impossible — taking off two whole days in a row, once the elections were over. After recording The Week in Blogs on Thursday afternoon, I announced to the PJTV studio: “On Friday and Saturday, I will not pick up the phone and I will not answer emails. That is all.”
But then, of course, our Dilettante-in-Chief went and said something so profoundly stupid that I had to drag myself out of my self-imposed (and totally-enjoyed) exile just to show you how profoundly stupid our Dilettante-in-Chief has become. So, for the record, I present the following:
“I think that’s a fair argument. I think that, over the course of two years we were so busy and so focused on getting a bunch of stuff done that, we stopped paying attention to the fact that leadership isn’t just legislation. That it’s a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone,” Mr. Obama told 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft in an exclusive interview set to air Sunday.
“Making an argument that people can understand,” Mr. Obama continued, “I think that we haven’t always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And it’s something that I’ve got to examine carefully … as I go forward.”
Ladies and gentlemen, the Dilettante-in-Chief who gave you the demerol of stimuli, who gave you three trillion dollars in new deficits after promising a “net spending cut,” and who gave you ObamaCare because he cares enough to raise prices while decreasing services…
…this is the President who now has the stones to claim that his unpopularity is all one big misunderstanding. He’s misunderstood, the poor thing.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is my dour duty to inform you that this once-great nation has elected its very first — and I very dearly hope last — Emo President.
And if someone can photoshop that image for me, I’ll send you a very nice PJTV coffee mug.
