Cool Fool

150217-cool-fool

In the midst of the world wide jihad that dare not speak it’s name, the Fruit Loop President found time to fool around in the Oval Office. Not the Bill Clinton kind of fooling around – just acting like a fool.

Obama mugged in front of a mirror, took selfies with a camera on a stick, and whined, “can I live?” while shooting air free throws. It was part of a BuzzFeed video to reach the “young healthies” he needs to subsidize the old and unhealthy in ObamaCare.

Later in Libya, the land he “liberated“, 21 Coptic Christians, or ‘Egyptians” as he called them, were beheaded, 45 Iraqis were burned alive, and two people were killed in an attack on a Danish cartoonist.

Maybe the president is a cool fool like a fox. His Gallup Poll approval rating reached 50% today.

 

Jeb and Hillary Soaking up Cash

Jeb and Hillary,  the consultant class favorites for 2016, are soaking up the cash. The idea being to bleed dry any upstarts like Scott Walker.

David Brock, the gun toting left wing political hit man who runs Media Matters, resigned in a huff from the board of the PAC, Priorities USA Action. Brock claims his enemies leaked this story to the New York Times revealing that he paid a 12.5% commission to Mary Pat Bonner to raise funds for Hillary. So far Bonner has taken a $6 million cut of Hillary’s action.

Apparently commissions are frowned upon in political knife fights.

Update: The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Foundation now welcomes foreign contributions.

Climate of Terror

Boston is buried under the most snow ever (not that weather equals climate).

The Islamic State crucifies children, beheads Christians,  and burns Muslims alive in cages.The U.S. embassy was evacuated in Yemen and Marines were forced to disable and abandon their weapons.

The White House says global warming is a greater threat than terror. Hard to know the truth.

Brian Williams Next Helicopter Assignment

Will Brian Williams be brought down by his fake claim that his helicopter was brought down by an enemy RPG over Iraq in 2003? Not likely. Media critic Howard Kurtz says he’s too big to fail.

Now the New Orleans Advocate is questioning his claim about a body floating through the French Quarter during Katrina. Tom Brokaw says it’s time for him to go.

Men in Green

I Googled Obama-Robin Hood and got 10,400,000 links . Obama-Peter Pan brought 1,800,000. Obama-Fantasy was good for 51,600,000.

I’m guessing he’s one of the men in green.

The popular Robin Hood story is that he steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Except the real Robin Hood – the legend anyway- stole from the Sheriff of Nottingham who taxed the poor.

In that story President Obama wouldn’t be Robin Hood. He’d be the Sheriff of Nottingham, except he taxes the rich. Well, the poor too if you want to get into the Obama Care weeds.

He’s obsessed with fairness. In 2008 Charlie Gibson pointed out that when Clinton and Bush cut the capital gains tax, revenues increased. He asked Obama if he would increase the capital gains tax even if it meant less revenue to the government. The future president said he would – in the interest of fairness.

Dan Henninger in Thursday’s WSJ Wonder Land column wondered about fairness:

Other than the president, the one other slice of the American population that obsesses over fairness everywhere is children. Every parent knows that about the age of four, kids in groups start saying, “That’s not fair.”

If you have a birthday party and cut pieces of the cake for all, one of them will say, “Her piece is bigger than mine. Why is she getting a bigger piece? That’s not fair.”

And parents, ever since Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden, have felt obliged to instruct their children on the reality. Life isn’t going to be “fair.” And the path into the future requires more than envy, tantrums and grabbing what belongs to others.

Cradle-to-grave fairness may be infantile, but the idea lives on, especially in politics and most of all in Mr. Obama’s mind.

Even Jimmy Carter knows life’s not fair.

Anyway, in President Obama’s mind it doesn’t matter if he’s Robin Hood or Peter Pan. We’ll always be the serfs.
