Obama Camp Claims He’s Batman


Pages: 1 2

The Obama campaign might want to think twice before focusing Americans’ attention on The Dark Knight Rises. It’s not exactly what they think it is. Mitt Romney resembles Batman far more than Barack Obama, who would raze Wayne Manor to the ground, redistribute the bricks among the criminals destroying the City, pay off all the mob bosses, and shut down Wayne Tower for environmental shortcomings.

There are plenty of other movies Obama can choose to exploit on his campaign’s behalf. He can always go with Magic Mike, since he presumably wants to strip Mitt Romney down to his undies while he gets to sit in the audience crowing. He could go with Savages, an Oliver Stone flick about criminals, albeit not white collar.  He could go with Step Up: Revolution, which looks more like Step Up: Occupy.

Or he could just let us watch our movies in peace, rather than trying to pervert their characters and messages to fit his egocentric view of the world. After all, that’s what Batman is really about – going about his business without worrying about getting the credit.

    Mr. Shapiro, will you please organize about 10 articles on the subject of “how to usurp the office of the President of the United States?” I say 10, there may be enough material to do a 20 part series. It seems that Front Page fears something in that they are ignoring the scandal of the century. I hope they are waiting for an August or September or October dump of material. It is obvious as hell that they are intentionally avoiding the issue. There are some great men and women of reputation that participate here at Front Page, shame on all of them for not being all over this. The President has become a National Security risk for crying out loud. Frank Gaffney and Diana West and Lord Charles Monckton are wholeheartedly convinced that this President is getting away with using fraudulent documents. Monckton has written a 20 page report that he has given to his patriot Brits warning them of the scandal that lies ahead.

      Obama and Batman are both fantasies. One is fighting bad guys and one is destroying the Constitution.
      Don't hold your breath that Ben Shapiro will mention one word about the evidence brought forward by
      Sheriff Joe Arpaio showing Obama to be engaged in serious document and identity fraud.

    Look for this to backfire against the President Barack Obama re-election campaign and could very well make Mitt Romney all the more attractive to voters.

    "And there’s no Robin in the movie. And even if there were a Robin … well, nobody likes Robin." For fifty-five years (I am 68.) I have been of the opinion that Batman is a pederast and Robin his catamite, which added to my disgust at the very idea of "super(?)"-heros. Super-hero, schmuper-hero, stupor-hero, pooper-hero.

      Perhaps I'm a bit more naive, but in that portion of my 66 years in which I read comic books (or thought about them), I always thought Robin was more like a ward (which is how he was described in the old comics) of Bruce Wayne, and an apprentice to Batman. I never for a moment thought there was anything improper about their relationship.

        Same here – this is exactly what I always thought. And I thought that Bruce Wayne kind of hid behind Robin – he was an excuse for him not to have a girlfriend, or even friends. And he needed an assistant, so that job fell to Robin. I never much liked Robin because he was so wimpy (but never did it occur to me there was anything sexual about either of them) and seemed to lack independence and drive.

    “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society.”

    Well, the libbies have finally acknowledged that their approach to political debate is no different from Hollywood's melodramas.

    This article is an example of sad state of the American education system. When Harvard graduates start authoring political analysis based on Batman and written in textspeak, you know it's time to run for the hills.

    Ah the Batman. Perhaps he is Joker in the guise of Batman!!

    Well, the Democratic Party has gone to the Batroom in public too.

  • Ricky Michael

    I was thinking he's more like Captain B.O. Nothing stinks worse than Obama-care.

  • Ghostwriter

    I'm in agreement with tagalog. I've read a few "Batman" comics and I've seen a number of the series. The relationship between Batman and Robin is a lot like a mentor-apprentice relationship. Like Batman,Robin lost his parents when he was young. Batman helped fill the void and he became his ward. And,he helped Batman out of more than a few scrapes.

    Obama is more like Erkel. A lying, deceitful, anti-American version of course.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Obama and his entire crew are bats and their followers (voters) are bats that have taken over
    our Capitol for a belfry. Pigman to the rescue……….'OINK' obviously I'm not kidding……
    Bosh Fawstin has a great take on all of this in relation to Super Hero's……….Personally
    I brake for superpowers……………………………………………William

    Saw Batman last night. Great movie, but it was very obvious to anyone, that Bane and his mob resembled the OWS riots in Oakland, which were supported by association of the Obama Administration.
