Article II, Section One of the United States Consitution states, ”No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.”
Unfortunately, the Constitution doesn’t stipulate that a president has to give a damn for and understand his country, be honest with voters, or have more class than an Occupy Wall Streeter.
College and law school grad, Chicago community organizer, absentee Illinois state senator, constitutional scholar, brief United States senator, current commander-in-chief of our armed forces, and leader of the Free World, Barack Hussein Obama, is devoid of any of those attributes.
He has been acclaimed as the most brilliant chief executive to ever establish residence in the White House despite the fact he is frequently reduced to a gaffe-prone, inarticulate gasbag when his trusty teleprompters aren’t around and he considers it panache to discuss dog droppings.
President George W. Bush was also known to put his foot in his mouth and his “Bushisms” are still lame comic fodder for Leno and Letterman but Bush’s gaffes don’t compare with Obama’s.
Leno, Letterman, and their liberal coterie dare not ridicule The Anointed One, the man Michelle Malkin aptly labeled “the Gaffe Machine” and whose mainstream media customarily ignores or soon buries Obama’s factual mistakes, dumb solecisms, and expressions of outright ignorance.
The president’s frequent excursions into foolery and foolishness have often been documented here and in the rest of the conservative blogosphere even if the MSM pretends they never happened.
There is no need to elaborate on Obama’s 57 states, his reference to “corpsemen,” his inability to speak Austrian, his confusing Jews with janitors and living versus dead Medal of Honors winners, his “intellectual stammering,” or the whole host of his other foul-ups.
They have become the stuff of legend, legendary gaffery which future liberal historians will someday discover and dismiss as vile, misleading partisan claptrap just as Mrs. Obama has dismissed the unflattering revelations of Jodi Kantor in The Obamas.
Two new examples of “misleading partisan claptrap” have recently emerged.
Neither is of monumental significance in the greater scheme of presidential politics although both provide great insight into our beloved leader.
One reveals a heretofore-unknown and shocking facet of Barack Obama’s life, the other displays what most Obamian critics have long known–that he sorely lacks both discretion and class.
The American public has been misled as to the extent of the Obama family.
We know more than we want to know about his Kenyan relatives, his drunken sot of a father and his illegal alien relatives, “dear Aunt Zeituni” and accused-DUI Uncle Omar. We know all we need to know about his bitter half, Michelle, and about their daughters, Sasha and Malia, who–according to Jodi Kantor–slid down a White House bannister when they first visited the home of George and Laura Bush.
What we didn’t know is that Barack Obama has two or more sons!
At least that’s what he indicated at a Chicago fundraiser last week, an admission verified in an official transcript.
He inadvertently fessed up when he said, “The first bill I signed–a bill that said that we’re going to have equal pay for equal work because I want my daughters treated the same way as my sons.” (http://bit.ly/y5QT2R)
Whether his unnamed boy-children are Kenyan or American wasn’t made public and it was unclear whether Michelle was aware she was a step-mom or if Sasha and Malia knew they had siblings.
Or, maybe it was just another in a long line of dumb, unreported gaffes?
No one was in a line when Obama spoke recently to a second grade class. The president was standing, the kids were all seated when he told them he scooped dog poop from the White House lawn because he didn’t want to leave it there.
That, of course, is BS as well as tmi but par for the course for this boy from Nairobi or Hawaii or wherever he’s from.
He is shown talking poop to the seven year olds, disrespecting the Oval Office, chewing gum at a Joplin memorial service and at a G20 meeting, and picking his nose at various venues in the following video melange: http://bit.ly/A5NIDg
The video is titled, “Barack Obama Is No Class Act” and subtitled by IOwntheWorld.com, “Classhole.”
Both title and subtitle fit perfectly and perfectly prove my new axiom that you can lead an overchiever to the executive mansion but that doesn’t make him worthy of living there.
