The Hip-Hop President


Pages: 1 2

Detached, diffident, aloof and resigned, America and the world saw a eulogizer in chief, not a commander in chief. It was as if something more important were occupying his mind at the time.

And it was. Soon after, Obama scurried onto a plane to Las Vegas for a lovefest campaign rally with 8,000 fanboys and fangirls who cultishly screamed, “I lovve youuuuuu” — interrupting his cool POTUS flow momentarily as he dispensed with a line or two about the bloody disaster in the Middle East. Incurably self-absorbed, Obama lamented that “we” had a “tough day” for a second or two. And then he turned quickly back to the central business of getting himself re-elected.

If only Obama had mustered half as much energy and outrage at the homicidal Islamic plotters in Benghazi as he shows in his tirades against the Tea Party, the Koch brothers, conservative talk radio, Fox News, House GOP budget reformers or GOP presidential rival Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan.

If only he had delivered his Rose Garden script with as much conviction and finger-jabbing as he did when he “slow-jammed the news” with comedian Jimmy Fallon.

This isn’t the first time Obama’s diffident demeanor in crisis has been exposed. I’ve noted before his bizarrely detached initial remarks about the Fort Hood jihadi attack — which he treated as an afterthought. And I reported on his sterile national security announcement in December 2010, when the jihadi Christmas Day underwear bomber rudely interrupted his vacay. Eyes down on his notes the whole time and dressed in tie-less informal Hawaiian island wear, he described the failed attack with the weariness of a small-town sheriff’s deputy.

And then he rushed back to work. Or rather, rest.

What makes a growing number of Americans angry is the lack of righteous anger this administration exhibits toward the existential threats we face abroad and at home. We want a leader — not a celebrity — who puts the nation’s self-preservation above his own.

    This was not a very substantial article at all. It did try to make use of Hip Hop, though.
    Here's some Good Hip Hop! Michelle Malkin and Jim Hoft, Gateway Goofball, aka FPM's ObamaYoMoma in their own Rap video.

    Disclaimer: No neoconservative impresarios were harmed in the making of this video, not even in the Daniel Greenfield / Sultan Knish style still image. So, don't go attacking the Rap Consulate and asphyxiating Dead Prez.

    It's very evident that President Obama is detached, emotionally or otherwise, from the real concerns facing our country (e.g., illegal immigration, the growing threat of Islam, the deficit). Time after time, when it concerns the death of Americans at the hands of Muslims, matters related to the strength and morale of our military, or issues connected to American exceptionalism, President Obama shows disinterest and apathy. It's apparent in his expressions, his voice, including his lax and apathetic attitude. He often looks like he's just going through the motions unless it's over something related to his 'cool' image or his adoring fanbase. But what else should we expect from a man who is deeply narcissistic?

    As troubling as it may sound, I think President Obama is one of the 'enemies within.' He deeply resents our country – namely, the America that many of us grew up in. If Obama is given a second term, he will be even more brazen and disinterested. We will an American President say and do things we never even imagined.

    Obama cool? Obama hip? Obama athletic?

    Please.

    This toad is an American hating wimp. I could whip his butt with both hands tied behind my back.

    Michelle is the one who be a beast to fight.

    Look at Obama's 2009 speech in Cairo. "Hey! My two bit theater skills got my into the Whitehouse. Why not use them to fix Islamic terrorism? It's got to work!"

    3 years later we see 100,000 people dead, a Caliphate in Northern Africa and soon to be Syria, terror armies swarming like some zombie apocalypse, and possibly a nuclear Ayatollah.

    It very well could be these terror attacks have been provoked by the Ayatolla as justification to detonate a nuclear bomb. Terrorists attack embassies, US predictably increases presence, the Ayatollah conducts a test and detonates a nuclear bomb.

    What is hard for me to belive that after everything that has transpired (in everything) and the damage that this person (Obama is not my leader) and his party has caused, the polls still show ahead and most likely will continue to be the POTUS . I am trying to prepare myself psychologically for the day after (the election) and face the fact and shock that he (PUTA Obama) will be re-elected again and the nightmare and descent of our country will continue. Like the Doors song "This is the end"

  • Ghostwriter

    Well,with what's been going on in the Middle East and the Muslim world in general,it seems that President Obama's reelection chances have just grown fainter.

  • Jaladhi

    Why do Americans still love this guy?? Either we are stupid or POTUS has divine powers. Ha, ha….LOL…

  • John_Kelly

    Hey guys why don't you give the President a break……after all he does the work of three men….. Larry, Moe and Curly Joe !!!!!!

  • Bartimaeus

    If Bill Clinton was the first black president, as we were told, then president Obama must be the first hip-hop president. It seems clear enough to me!

  • DrBukk

    Be of good cheer! Romney has changed his name to "Mitty Sent" and the latest polls are skyrocketing in his favor.

    Translation: "We'll catch that who made that video and blame that poor bastard for the whole thing and bring him to justice – damn, you real Americans are some friggin' stupid. Where's my tickets for Vegas night…?"
