“When I think about what we’ve done well and what we haven’t done well,” the president said, “The mistake of my first term…was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”
Mr. Obama acknowledged the dissonance (conflict) between others’ perception of his strength as an expert orator, and his own. (clarification is mine; Sarge)
“It’s funny – when I ran, everybody said, well he can give a good speech but can he actually manage the job?” he said. “And in my first two years, I think the notion was, ‘Well, he’s been juggling and managing a lot of stuff, but where’s the story that that tells us where he’s going?’ And I think that was a legitimate criticism.”
Pressed by CBS’ Charlie Rose about what he felt he needed to explain better to the American people, the president corrected that he wanted to do more “explaining, but also inspiring.”
Beaurat Obama’s been shooting from the lip again. It explains a lot if the American people will accept what they hear as truth as opposed to a statement later cut, fit, snipped and tailored to match a narrative. This is more simply doo-doo this dog dropped inadvertently.
He’s really not that good at off-the-cuff speaking.
Obama wants us to accept that oratory, smoothly delivered and aptly layered on like lacquer over a veneer, can keep us from looking to see if there really is any genuine quality and solidarity in the product he hawks like a peddler. He presents the product but won’t allow close inspection of it before the sale.
He drives legislation before Congress allowing no time to inspect it and assure its quality. Then, when the people protest with their indifference to his sales pitch, he blames the non-buyers for his lack of success and demands (by Executive Decree) we buy the garbage he’s selling.
Obama speaks of “thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right”. It is. Nothing Obama can say will change the fact it IS about getting the policy right. It’s about getting policy beneficial to the people in place because of his leadership so their continued safety and progress will endure.
The problem is Obama’s not a leader. He’s a slave to his illegitimate ideological forefathers: Marx, Lenin, and Mao. They all preached the social benefits of shared sacrifice of the “haves” to benefit those “having not” while making sure they personally never suffered the plight of those they claimed they represented. They sat above it. Obama sits beyond it.
Aesop was a Greek writer, or an inventor of fables. Auxiliary definitions are: a liar, fabricator, falsifier, and prevaricator. Obama fits the bill. Who can PROVE the credibility of his sealed school records? Who can believe he has NO association with known Marxists and past criminals such as Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn? Who can assume anything concerning his stated religious faith as Christian when he’s said, and recorded on videotape, he enjoys his “Muslim faith” and refers to the “Holy Koran” as a guide he follows. Who can believe he’s really trying to include the people in the American Dream?
He’ll say the words must be inspected in context. Obama spoke to an audience stocked with Muslims. Of course he was trying to appeal to them at the time. It can also be argued; what he says at any given moment is self-serving, patronizing, demeaning, denigrating and an indication of his self-centered belief he’s superior to any audience: including the American people. What serves him now; serves him best.
Context is an important word here. It means perspective, places the verbiage into an environment most beneficial to the speaker and those acceptant of his speech. While the lie is overarching, it is still a lie to be believed by those naïve enough to look no further for the truth.
Obama’s inspiring but hasn’t and can’t get the job done. Look at the record.
Thanks for listening
