Obama Looking to “Kick Ass” Over Gulf: Woe Be Unto W.!
By John W. Lillpop
President Obama, smarting from withering criticism of his “leadership” during the oil spill, has decided to get in touch with his “inner angry child” to show that he really does care about the lost jobs and financial ruin facing Americans as result of the worst environmental catastrophe in the nation’s history.
With the devastating crisis approaching 50 days of presidential neglect and elitist dithering, Obama appears to be finally waking up to the fact that the American people expect more than “clean and articulate” from the nation’s president, especially during times of severe crisis.
Not surprisingly, memories of the Christmas Day underwear bomber fiasco and Obama’s tepid response come rushing to the fore.
With all due respect Mr. President, campaigning for the reelection of leftist senators Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid, cavorting with Mexico’s Felipe Calderon in attacking Arizona lawmakers for defending U.S. citizens from Mexican invaders, providing over-the-hill Brits like Paul McCartney with a White House forum for slandering former American presidents, and vacationing as though you are European royalty, ARE NOT what the American people expect, particularly when thousands of jobs and the entire U.S. economy are in peril.
As reported, in part, at Politico, the president has decided to “kick ass” as part of his new, angry self:
“President Barack Obama is now marshalling the anger some critics have been demanding that he show in connection with the oil spill--but it's directed, at least in part, at the same TV pundits who have been pounding him over the issue.
“In an excerpt from an interview with NBC's Matt Lauer, Obama made clear that the chattering class is getting under his skin with claims he was too slow to react to the spill.
"I was down there a month ago, before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago, I was meeting with fishermen down there standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this would be," the president said.
“Obama also seemed to be bridling at criticism that his management style is too professorial.
"I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they, potentially, have the best answers so I know whose ass to kick," Obama told NBC.”
Splendid, terrific attitude and it is about time, sir!
Now as far as knowing whose “ass to kick” may we remind you that W. is no longer in office, so blaming him may make you feel better, but it will not do a damn thing to address the issue.
Instead, we urge the immediate dismissal of Janet Napolitano and Ken Slazar and all people reporting to them.
After that, sir, we recommend that you find yourself a comfortable chair and a large mirror. Take a deep breath and gaze straight into that mirror, sir, and you will find the person most deserving of a tush thrashing.
By the way, sir, if you don’t kick the right ass, we the people will do so in November!
