Emperors-new-clothes   “But he hasn’t got anything on!” the child said in Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes” and the town realized the child was right.

President Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t march around buck naked, as far as I know, and the most brilliant man ever to reside in the White House, a man touted to be as smart or even smarter than even President James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, rarely if ever makes mistakes. 

After all, he is a constitutional scholar, not to mention a former “community organizer,” which was sufficient, along with his racial makeup, to qualify him to be nominated by the Democrat Party in 2008 to be its candidate for the presidency of the United States of America as well as commander-in-chief of our armed forces.  He went on to be elected over the heroic yet insipid Republican offering and the rest is continuing history. 

However, as with the Emperor’s townspeople, Obama’s fellow countrymen are coming to a realization about him: He definitely wears clothes but they are, figuratively, tattered and as transparent as his promises.  They can see their 44th president for what he is, and it’s not a pretty sight.

A large part of Obama’s history, well-concealed by his obsequious mainstream media, has been his tendency toward thoughtless, unscripted comments and observations over the last few years, everything from his proud accomplishment of visiting 57 of our 58 states to his admission to “Joe the Plumber”of his socialist agenda of “sharing the wealth” to his reference to Navy “corpseman” in front of non-corpse naval personnel.  

Emperor Obama We were warned.   Not that it will get any more attention from Obama’s MSM than any of his many previous gaffes and unrehearsed revelations of fallibility and stupidity but The Anointed One really lost his ointment when he was caught with his pants, that is, teleprompters, down in front of an audience at D.C.’s Benjamin Banneker High School. 

He confessed not only that he was “not always the very best student” but that ethics “would not have made it on the list” of his favorite subjects.  He elaborated by saying, “I did not love every class I took.  I wasn’t always paying attention.”

Most school kids don’t pay an awful lot of attention to their teachers but at that point Obama dropped his Obamabomb by fessing up to what has been obvious thoughout his career: “I remember when I was in 8th grade I had to take a class called ethics.  Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if you’d ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball.  I don’t think ethics would have made it on the list.”  (http://bit.ly/qyfERl) 

That admission was the equivalent of Ted Kennedy conceding he was an immoral rake and Jimmy Carter agreeing he was inept.  Why bother mentioning what is self-evident?  The man who announced a string of “ethics rules” after his election has led an administration that has breached more rules of ethics in just the last year than Richard Nixon could ever have dreamed of. 

Stricter Ethics Rules Coming   It was nice of Obama to reveal that his ethical shortcomings date back to his childhood.   Now it’s time to get out of his imperial clothes and get out of the White House.
