Barack Obama, President Hat Stand

Ouch, and double ouch. GQ Magazine is out with its list of the 25 LEAST INFLUENTIAL people and, weighing in at 17, is the Chicago Kid, the Golden Child of Hawaii, the Healer of the Oceans. Mr. Nobel Peace Prize for Nothing himself, BAAAA RACCCKKKK OOOOOO BAAAAAA MA! (That’s my attempt to write out a Boxing Announcer’s voice):

17. President Obama
He can blame Republicans in Congress all he likes and get away with it because congressional Republicans are the worst. But the fact remains that I have spent the majority of this man’s presidency watching bad things happen, then hearing a thoughtful speech about how we gotta make sure the bad things never happen again, and then watching as nothing gets done. Next time there’s an election, I want Nate Silver to analyze the data and tell me who to vote for so that I don’t end up casting my ballot for a very eloquent hat stand.

Eloquent “Hat Stand?” I love it!!

If the White House is counting on the deal with Iran to pull Obama’s blistered nuts out of the raging fire of the Obamacare catastrophe, think again. The entire impetus from the US perspective was to pander to domestic politics with the hope that the deal would burnish Barack’s image as a international leader. Too bad that John Kerry and Susan Rice are so damn myopic and so out of touch with the average American. The image of Barack Obama as an international dealmaker is not going to resonate much at home in America. Most Americans could give two shits about Iran and would be hard pressed to point it out on a map. The Americans who do know and care about Iran are more likely to be close friends and supporters of Israel and will be angry at President Hat Stand for selling out Israel. The passage of time will make this deal with Iran a festering albatross around Obama’s skinny neck.

What do you think?

  • Steven Butterbaugh

    Having Obama President is to experience being insulted from morning to night – for eight years. It’s almost unbearable.

  • DianaLC

    I was thinking of the 25th Amendment because of Larry’s use of the word “schizophrenic” in regard to Obama’s foreign strategy.
    Most know that toward the end, Hitler was certainly mentally off, and his weird health problems exacerbated by his doctor’s ministrations did not help.
    Edith Wilson basically ran the Presidency after Wilson’s stroke. I often wondered about the growing hold of Alzheimer’s on Reagan–and much as many love him and admire him, they should not deny that there WERE indeed signs toward the end.
    We’ve had several diagnose narcissism as the mental/emotional condition of our current POTUS.
    I just get so crazy because so many people in the media–including Fox, and in the government continue to take this man seriously as our POTUS. When will people in the WH finally step up and tell the truth about his behaviors? How do will get him judged as “disabled” under the 25th Amendment.
    At this point I prefer the crazy uncle over the narcissistic POTUS whose brain probably fried from his Choom Gang days and whatever else he ingested with Larry Sinclair. Does he have an AIDS-related dementia? What’s that scar on his head? What caused it and how does it affect his brain. Did it involve a pre-frontal lobe injury that affects his ability to choose right over wrong?
    Give me some help here as I am unable to turn on the television for fear of learning about how much more in debt I and my children and grandchildren are and how much in danger we are of losing our country as we used to know it when every day the POTUS does something so obviously irrational and nobody throws him in a straight jacket.

    Morning again in America: rise of the conservative Latinos.

    http://www.ozy.com/fast-forward/latinos-and-the-right/3864.article

    It really is about shared values; not ethnicity by birth.

    • MG6

      Mainly, because they came legally and embraced their adopted country with passion!

      Those coming illegally (not all but the great majority) come running to the welfare offices, work under the table, send the food stamps bought food home to their countries (not to mention the welfare checks), and fail to embrace this country.

    • TeakWoodKite

        I forgot about that and the veiled criticism of Pope Francis of Obama.

  • HELENK2
    • harvey

      I honestly believe that. It has always (since forever) been said “A good leader never asks anyone to do what he/she would not do themselves). How can Obama ask people to sacrifice if he has never sacrificed? He has said “I was not fortunate enough to have served”. How then can he command?

      There is the addage in the USMC “Semper Fi” and it means I got mine how about you? There is also the addage “Semper Fidelis” meaning always faithful. Obama is of the semper fi mob.

    • Deapster

      We are being asked in Calif to feel guilty about leaving Thanksgiving leftovers, which I thought was the whole point of the meal – for at least one day, one felt abundance and gratitude for it.

      • HELENK2

      Powers that be at CBS:

      We checked with the WH people CBS is related to and they say no problems if you run a piece on Benghazi.

      In fact here is a list of people to interview. We will check all copy. Fourth Estate integrity and all that.

      And could you wear that dress that shows off your t*ts, because we want to bring in the obot viewers as much as the Tea Hags who we already know will show up.

      Ooops, we bad, we goofed on one of your sources. Shame on us. You have to leave now. And we had better bury this whole Benghazi thing in the first place. Hate to be reminded we erred from within.

      And BTW, could you wear that same dress when you pack up your things and get perp walked out of here? There might be cameras or the Koch Bros might send someone over to carry your bags for you.

    “Most Americans could give two shits about Iran and would be hard pressed to point it out on a map.”

    There’s more conversation about football then there is about politics. Now if Iran gets the bomb under O’s watch, he’ll be the one radioactive (like Nixon)

    • Deapster

      Unless you are a Cold War baby, you might not even know what the bomb is; except a substitute for the currently overused word “awesome”.

      Those old enough to remember Duck and Cover grew up being scared witless about the bomb. I wonder how alien this really is for younger people.

      • harvey

        I visited both the Hiroshima museum at ground zero and the Nagasaki ground zero in 1958. The thing that sticks in my mind today is the silohouette images burned into concrete and brick walls where and when men and women were Xrayed by the atomic bomb that brought Japan to her knees. Those ancient bombs are considered as mere fire-crackers compared to today’s nuclear bombs.
        And as a matter of fact the very first Atom Bomb detonation was in 1945 and the sound was broadcast over the radio. It seems as if that sound lasted a good five to ten minutes. First the explosion and then the implosion, the outgoing wind (implosion, a vacum) and the incoming draft of returning wind lasted an eternity. There was lightening and thunder and not a cloud in sight. I lived approx. 300-350 miles from White Sands New Mexico, the site of the detonation, in Kermit Texas. The radio active cloud of those detonations in White Sands NM past Casper Wyoming.

        • S7teen70six

          The intimacy with which you have experienced both the immense power and horrible devastation of these weapons is humbling.

    • harvey

      But football is changing. Now the three hundred pound gladiators are being bullied, poor things! The same can’t be said for Iran. It isn’t “if” but “when” Iran goes nuclear and discovers a delivery system for their cargo the Madhi comes out of the well and all nations will be fair game, including other Islamic nations.

      Muslims now control, to some extent, about fifty of the world’s most important countries—from Indonesia in the East, through the oil rich states of the Middle East, to Senegal on the Atlantic. At least seventy of the world’s 184 countries are considered part of the Dar-al Islam—the “House of Islam,” land over which Islam rules.

      Any nation or region Islam has conquered is considered Dar-al Islam—the “House of Islam. That is why they demanded “Ground Zero” where the World Trade Center once stood be granted them for their Mosque. They believe Allah has granted them the land they conquered. They once conquered what is known as today the geographical region of the modern day State of Israel. Allah has given that land to the Islamics as far as they are concerned, they conquered it in the name of Allah.

      Israel is nuclear and Iran soon will be unless Israel knocks the bastards out.

        • Deapster

          Roberts really said elected reps were allowed to pass stupid legislation if they wanted to and it was not the court’s role to overturn stupid.

          But is is the court’s role to over turn unconstitutional which is most likely where this battle will be fought – First Amendment rights and whether abortion is a “religious” issue which I assume will be asserted by HobbyLobby.

          Or is abortion a “free speech” issue. (It’s my baby and I can do what I want to.)

          Or as originally determined, is abortion a guaranteed made-up Right to Privacy issue.

          Government has to keep their hands off the subject, until it rises to a conflict between a state’s interest and a private interest which they determined by a gestation yard stick.

          It is going to be an intellectualy interesting debt. Is this present court or one where Oblamo gets one more appointee if Ginsburg steps down, up to the intellectual task. (Doubt it)

          • DianaLC

            I make a point of going to my local Hobby Lobby whenever I remember I haven’t gone into the store for awhile. If there’s really nothing I want or need there at the time, I purchase something small just so I can tell the cashier to be thankful that she works for a Christian company willing to fight for our religious freedom. (I haven’t run into a male cashier there yet.)

    The Affordable Care Act contains provisions for “death panels,” which decide which critically ill patients receive care and which don’t, says Mark Halperin, senior political analyst for Time magazine.

    “It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment.
    That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled,” Halperin told “TheSteve Malzberg Show”

    • Deapster

      Futility of treatment is a valid medical concern. And a hot topic among bioethicists today. They emphasize there is no futility in care; only treatment which is finite and limited in its projected outcomes.

      • DianaLC

        Bioethicists can argue, and we are all intelligent to understand the issue. But it still comes down to INDIVIDUAL belief.

        • KenoshaMarge

          Exactly. I have all ready made if clear that I do not want any heroic efferts made to keep me alive when my time has come. I have put DNR (do not resusitate) on all my papers and have a DNR keychain.

            Sad to report having been on the front lines of this issue, how many times the wishes of the patients do get over-ridden usually because of some family conflict and drama that gets acted out at the end.

            Choose your surrogate decision maker very well and inform all other family members what and why you are making this decision and under various scenarios well beyond DNR. Looks up The Five Wishes document to reinforce your decision even further.

            Doctors will say they get sued by the survivor; not the deceased so these family squabbles about killing mother and she like you best, etc or even more crudely to keep SS check still coming are but a few of the reasons end of life direction do not work as well as intended.

            But you are really up a creek if you have nothing written down at all. In the final analysis they say these decisions are made in “the best interests of the patient” which may not be what the patient themselves wrote down.

            And perhaps this is as it should be. Surrogate decisions makes often fail when finally asked to make the final and awesome decision.

            Make sure your doctor is also well advised to provide guidance to the decision maker.

            IF you still get to “keep your doctor”. Period.

      Obama can’t miss a chance to diss and told his eager groupies out here in California:

      “There is at least one faction of one part that has decided they are more interested in stopping progress than advancing it, and aren’t interested in compromise or engaging in solving problems and are more interested in scoring points for the next election.”

      With that in mind Mr Obama, will you please tell us what you were doing between 20:00 and 22:00 on Sept 11, 2012?

      This was on the eve of your own “next election” when your Ambassador was getting slaughtered in a well-organized terrorist attack on US interests abroad while you were out preaching you had Al Qaeda on the run?

    IMO……Obama and Kerry “Let’s Make A Deal” is pathetic. How do you make a deal with a country that hates you, wants you dead, wants Israel wiped off the face of the map, and publically hangs gays? And what about the American hostages held in Iran? They weren’t part of any deal. Obama and Kerry should have picked “door #3″.

    On a side note: Larry, your take on the article in the Daily Caller. Erik Prince and Blackwater. http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/26/blackwater-founder-erik-prince-on-why-private-militaries-are-the-future/

    A must-read: Love this paragraph.

    President Nixon’s lawlessness was sneaky, and he had the decency to be
    ashamed of it. President Obama’s lawlessness is as bland and bloodless
    as the man himself, and practiced openly, as though it were a virtue.
    President Nixon privately kept an enemies list; President Obama publicly
    promises that “we’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward
    our friends.”

          Hey, since I am now on Medicare, I’ve received my first KP notice that I’m due for my first “wellness” physical. I’m used to getting notices from KP about preventive tests that are due for me. Since they’re free when you are told to take them, I’ve always complied. This time I had to answer a 20 minute questionnaire about my health for Medicare so it would be available when I went in for the physical.
          I called it my preliminary death panel review, and the lady on the phone just chuckled.

    I was wondering why Drudge had as their lead stories animal abuse in Hollywood.

    I just realized that Obama had two Hollywood fundraisers today.

    Must have been good cocktail discussion

    You have to love Drudge

    • Deapster

      Yech, you mean he is within shouting distance of Helen2K and me today. Lock the doors. Make sure the border quarantine stations are on high alert – contaminated good soon to arrive.

      • ME

        He just left Seattle and they turned all our spy cameras off for him. I get that, I really do, from a security perspective, it’s logical. Still, it really ticked me off, the news saying the President was entitled to his privacy and safety because we wouldn’t want the wrong people tracking him. Hello!! What about the rest of us? Are we ever entitled to any privacy? No, we might be dangerous. The cameras, the background checks, the gate rape, those are for the little people. And also apparently for several foreign leaders and the Vatican. I really don’t know how you fix it, it just ticks me off.

        • Deapster

          It is all about MEEEEEEE: it is never about YOU!

        • KenoshaMarge

          Back in the day we used to mock “Special strokes for special folks.” And we didn’t much like it.

      • KenoshaMarge

        Are you well stocked with anti-nausea medications?

    • HELENK2

      did backtrack want to eat Lassie or Rin Tin TIn?

      • Deapster

        Those are the Vietnamese who eat dog, raised specifically for this purpose; not sure Indonesians eat dog. Probably one more Obama Lie trying to make himself look more exotic.

        • Deapster

          NB: Obama lived in a deluxe expat/embassy part of Jakarta (we saw it) and with in a primarily Muslim culture in this city. He was not part of the Batak Toba culture or the Minahasa culture.

          I 100% suspect he lied 100% about this too.

          “Indonesia

          In Indonesia, eating dog meat is usually associated with people from the Batak Toba culture, who cook a traditional dish named saksang that is like a dog-meat stew.[6].

          The Minahasa are also well-known for eating dog, which is considered a festive dish and usually reserved for special occasions like weddings and Christmas.[7]

          Dog meat is not consumed by strictly-observant Muslims, as dogs are omnivores and as such are haraam under Muslim dietary laws.”

        • S7teen70six

          Well, we know he eats jackass.

          • KenoshaMarge

            I didn’t actually know he ate jackass – I just knew he was one. Is that canabalism?

            • S7teen70six

              ROFLMAO Marge!

      • Deapster

        Here is what Bill Ayers said Obama said in Dreams From My Father .. that is Muslim step father fed him dog!!!!!!

        “With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chili peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy).

        Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate:

        One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share. That’s how things were, one long adventure, the bounty of a young boy’s life. …

        • S7teen70six

          He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate:

          So I guess the moral of the story is: Don’t eat shit. Just look at what happened to Barry Soetoro.

        • chrissy

          You do realize that most of what Barry wrote was fiction.

          • elizabethrc

            In that respect, it WAS autobiographical.

          • ME

            Actually there is some question about whether or not Obama even wrote it. It sure doesn’t sound like him, making it like double fiction, BS squared.

            • TeakWoodKite

              Considering Soetoro has never had an original thought….he didn’t

          • KenoshaMarge

            And most of what he says.

          • foxyladi14

            he is fiction.

        • foxyladi14

          Musta ate a lot of weasel back then.

        • TeakWoodKite

          I think the roasted grasshopper went to his brain

      • foxyladi14

    • KenoshaMarge

      You also have to love the hypocrisy of the Hollywood crowd. But we saw that with their advocacy of gun control while inflicting endless violence on their audiences.

    • DianaLC

      Probably also far more intelligent to waste his time with him.

  • Deapster

    Trifecta for Obama today: (1) Irrelevant, (2) dishonest and (3) incompetent (GQ and Zogby):

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/11/more_bad_polling_news_for_obama.html

    Zogby points out that even in the height of the Lewinski scandal while people thought Clinton was dishonest, they still thought he was competent. Obama now scores badly on both counts.

    Good news: America is finally waking up to the truth.

    • S7teen70six

      Yeah, over 5 years too late.

    • Mary123s

      that’s because O’s policies are affecting *their* wallets. Under (though not always because of) Clinton, gas was affordable, there was a modicum of international peace, and good jobs. A president could eat cats (no pun) and still get a 60% approval rate if people feel secure.

    The only politician less influential than Obama was Weiner. So a Dick was less influential than an Asshole. Says a lot for the state of our society.

    • ME

      I’m not sure. When it comes to comedic value, who is better, Weiner or Obama? I think maybe Weiner was better, because his shortcomings were more amusing.

      • S7teen70six

        His short-comings were certainly much more obvious.

        • JohnnyTwoDog

          Weiner has the name, Obama the flacidness

    “What do you think?”
    I think the media is FOS. Adam Levine is not the sexiest man in America. The sexiest man in America is obviously Dave Bray from Madison Rising. You’d have to be dead or a complete moron not to know this :) As to the “eloquent hat stand” himself, where’s the “eloquent” part??! Seriously, he can hardly read pre-written speeches off a teleprompter. That defect would be forgivable if he had any other strengths. He doesn’t. Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations! The guy appears to be able to read, so give him a nobel peace prize. I’m telling you, Biden is the smart one. At least he was honest.

    Com on, GQ! He should have been the very least influential. I guess he still does have those basement dwelling obots, but who are they really? Who in the thinking world cares what they say?

    • DianaLC

      I went to GQ online, and BO was listed as 25, and I have to admit that there were many on that list whom I did not know at all. Does the 25 mean he’s the least of the least or what? Or is the one listed as 1 the least of the least. In any case, I have to agree that I didn’t recognize any on that list that influence my thinking. I can only say that I like Harrison Ford only because I think of him as Han Solo or Indiana Jones.

      • Deapster

        The deal is when actors start mouthing off as if they were political pundits is when they become irrelevant. Ford – guilty as charged.

        Not sure even Clint Eastwood who at least earned his chops serving a stint as a real live mayor was able to pull off his empty chair chat. Proof in the pudding on that one.

        • DianaLC

          I know, of course, about Harrison Ford’s mouth problem. Did you really read what I said? I think of him only “as Han Solo or Indiana Jones. The photo on the Web site had him in his Indiana hat, I believe.

          • Deapster

            Yes, I agree with you. Screen images are often the best they can be in our minds; and they should leave it at that.

  • KlugerRD

    and the Elegant Hat Stand is sandwiched between Ryan Reynolds and a bug (cicadas) in the ranking.

  • Deapster

    Two observations just this week:

    1. Latest Economist suggests the only way for Obama to pull off the rest of his term is to move into the international arena where there is still some modicum of good will —

    (mainly because he has not yet screwed up everything there too, which the Economist admits he has done domestically in the US)

    2. WSJ CEO Conference interviews Obama and he remains full of blame for any failures starting with the claim he used Romney care as his model for his Obamacare, so any fault is obviously Romneycare’s fault; not his.

    Then he goes on to blaming Republicans for not wanting to raise taxes, so all his other enlightened programs can go forward.

    The guy is 100% pathological. WSJ gave him too much credit concluding he was now approaching governance more as bottom up incrementalism; than top down dictates.

    • ME

      I think he may be beyond redemption at this point. In a complete fantasy world I guess he could pardon the whistleblowers, re-establish the Bill of Rights, close Guantanamo, lower taxes, and retract Obamacare.

      • S7teen70six

        Yep, a complete fantasy world.

      • KenoshaMarge

        Once people decided that he is incompete and dishonest it is difficult to ever climb up from the low poll numbers.

        We can look forward to the media doing all they can to help him. Which is great because that only erodes their own diminishing credibility.

  • KenoshaMarge

    I think the comparison is an insult to hat stands everywhere.

      Coleridge’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” has a special place in my heart for many, many reasons. As an eighth-grade student not only did our class read it but we were captivated by the story Then we used it as an exercise in finding poetic figures of speech.

      My favorite passage of alliteration comes from it, even beating out for me Tennyson’s “moan of doves in immemorial elms. And murmuring of innumerable bees.: I like Coleridge’s “the fair breeze blew; the white foam flew. The furrow followed free. We were the first to ever burst into that silent sea.” (Mind you–I don’t remember the exact punctuation and line breaks.)

      I would “like” your cartoon. But Obama will never ever have to “pass like night, from land to land” and tell his tale” because I truly believe he cannot learn a moral lesson.

      Yes, Obamacare will be his albatross, a symbol of guilt in the poem. But the Ancient Mariner did learn his lesson and then had to pay the price that the Nightmare Life in Death” exacted. The liar Obama will be living off our taxes for the rest of his life, I fear.

      Sorry, you set of the rambling English teacher in me.

      • Deapster

        Obama’s curse is he peaked too early. He will have a haunted life having reached for the brass ring so early and proving he has no second act. That is his albatross. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.

  • Dave L.

    Lincoln- Stove Pipe
    Obama- Crack Pipe

    That explains it all…..

    • Deapster

      Heavy drug use by young people causes permanent brain damage. Think fetal alcohol syndrome when you think how many impressionable years Obama was a Choomer.

      Obama is a mental midget and does not even have any residual brain capacity to improve, even with experience batting him in the face.

      He himself is a structural deficit.
