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?
