Obama In A Bubble Of Egotism
Robert Gibbs, spokesman for Barack Hussein Obama, Junior said, "we never said that the Pentagon prevented us from going," to visit wounded and recovering U.S. Soldiers at Landstuhl while Obama was in Germany.
That's a very interesting statement from Gibbs who, on July 25, said, "We had taken some of that into consideration but we believed that it could be done in a way that would not create, it would not be created or seen as a campaign stop."
By "some of that", Gibbs means what was intended for Obama to be a photo-op with U.S. Troops. The reason Obama nixed visiting and paying his respects to the Soldiers is that he was asked not to bring along his entourage of toadying reporters and photographers thereby turning his visit with the Troops into a Campaign and Media Event.
The above becomes even more Theater of The Absurd when you consider that Obama Campaign Guru David Axelrod blamed the Pentagon for Obama not visiting the Soldiers, saying that they "viewed this as a campaign event and therefore they said he should not come."
[Pentagon, spokesman Bryan Whitman] said, "The Pentagon certainly did not tell the senator he could not visit Landstuhl."
So we have Gibbs saying he didn't say what he said as well as saying that that Axelrod didn't say what he said.
See, these people - and by that I mean Team Obama - tell so many lies they can no longer keep track of all the lies they tell, who tells them, who tries to cover up for the lies and who tries covering up for the covering up.
Obama was never disinvited from visiting Soldiers at Landstuhl. He was asked not to make it a campaign and media event. But he couldn't keep himself from doing this - egomaniac that he is - so he dissed the Soldiers because he couldn't have it his way.
Andrew Romano, writing at Newsweek, apparently hasn't been paying any attention to how The Left has been acting and behaving for the past seven years (at least the past seven years):
Romano, writing about the differences in policy on the Iraq War between John McCain and Obama says:
Without any substantive distance between him and Obama on the way forward in Iraq, the Arizona senator has chosen to indulge in recent days in a series of meaningless attacks meant create [sic] (I think he's missing a "to" connecting those words. - Drake] the illusion of contrast where none actually exists.
It would be nice - why, the U.S. and the world might even approach a harmonious whole - if Liberals everywhere held their own people and politicians to the same standard that they hold and apply to everyone else. But don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen. Not even if you have two lung-fulls of some mind blowing nugg smoke.
My guess will be that no matter what happens, if Obama steals the election, the LeftTards will still blame Bush, or the Republicans, or anyone else. They will place blame anywhere and everywhere except where it belongs, on themselves and their own elected asshats.
Ted Tumor Head and his nephews (nephews and son, I think) did bitch about windmill farms and got that idea of "alternative energy" source removed from his precious oceanfront view of his property. They're "Kennedys", they don't have to do or say what they expect from others.
I WISH I COULD FIND PAYING WORK for doing this graphics stuff. No offers yet. Maybe someday?!???
So I received my first hate mail (if you can call it that). I made a comment on a NY Times Article (one of a few voicing my opinion) and one of the other posters tracked me down to make a "very nice" comment on my blog. I made a new post including these comments since this person randomly choose a post that had nothing to do with Obama in order to slam me... perhaps so it couldn't be found later (hmmm).
I just don't understand why people have to hunt others down to "give them a piece of their mind"... what's the point?
This person hopes I suffer a full 8 years with Obama as president... THE HORROR!!!
Thank you for the kind words on the NewsweAk parody.
The point - I think - of "hunting you down" is because you don't think exactly as they do. Why, how dare you - and I - don't automatically accept the Obama Messiah as our saviour. Who are we to question him or his supporters?
How dare we have our own minds and push away from their "groupthink" mentality?
That's what I think their problem is.
Be happy! You have a troll! And not just any Troll, a rabid Obama Troll! Have fun with him or her, oops, I mean "IT". Drive "IT" crazy, make "IT" hurt. Make "IT" whine and cry - taunt "IT".
I'm heading over to your place right now to read the comments.
Let me know the link to the NY Times piece so I can read it. You can email it to me if you want if you dont want to put it in comments here. Or maybe you have it in what you published, like I said, I'm heading over to your place as soon as I publish this comment.
I see you commented on the same post "IT" commented... just to keep things consistent. :o)
I have a new one called "The Liberal's Curse" where I taunt "IT". I seriously doubt a return visit.
Thanks for the comments.
P.S. I don't believe I know your email address... or I'm blind and don't see it.
"Panic or die." I like that one. That may need a photochopshop exclusive with Big Carbon Al's giant bloat head.
