Ahead of Obama’s ‘Checkers’ Speech ….

Filed under: MSM Biz/Other Bias,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 7:40 am

So the presidential candidate I refer to as BOOHOO (Barack O-bomba Overseas Hussein “Obambi” Obama) is going to give his “Checkers” speech today.

It’s instructive that hard lefty Ron Fournier of the Associated Press, last seen giving the candidate I refer to as HR4C (Hillary Rodham Cackling Crying Complaining Clinton) and her husband, ARIFPOTUS (Accused Rapist and Impeached Former President of the United States) Bill Clinton, a lot of grief, has set his sights on Obama:

Obama walks arrogance line

….. both Obama and his wife, Michelle, ooze a sense of entitlement.

“Barack is one of the smartest people you will ever encounter who will deign to enter this messy thing called politics,” his wife said a few weeks ago, adding that Americans will get only one chance to elect him.

Obama’s cool self-confidence got him into trouble in New Hampshire when he said Clinton was “likable enough,” faint praise that grated on female votes who didn’t appreciate him condescending to the former first lady.

Privately, aides and associates of Obama tell stories about a boss who can be aloof and ungracious.

….. If arrogance is a display of self-importance and superiority, Obama earns the pejorative every time he calls his pre-invasion opposition to the war in Iraq an act of courage.

While he deserves credit for forecasting the complications of war in 2002, Obama’s opposition carried scant political risk because he was a little-known state lawmaker courting liberal voters in Illinois. In 2004, when denouncing the war and war-enabling Democrats would have jeopardized his prized speaking role at the Democratic National Convention, Obama ducked the issue.

Fournier, like Zell Miller at the 2004 GOP convention, could have gone on, and on, and on.

About that “one chance,” Michelle — threat or promise? Or will that be yet another previous statement to “back away from,” like your husband’s 2004 promise that “I will serve out my full Senate term” in the Senate before considering a presidential run?

Dictionary update: “Back away from” is Democrat-ese for “I lied, but the press will forgive me, so it doesn’t matter.”
