The old expression is that even blind squirrels find an acorn once in while may apply on any column that is not totally left-wing moon-battery, that is published by the Washington (com)Post. Certainly I find few enough of them that are palatable enough to even read, let alone comment favorably upon.
This morning Colbert King wrote something that I think is worth passing on, notable for the fact that King has steadily beat the drum for BHO. Even King has had enough with Obungler’s arrogance. (h/t the Tatler)
What is he thinking? It’s not as if the Obama family is living in deprivation in Washington.
Without leaving the White House grounds, they have access to five full-time chefs, a tennis court, a bowling alley, a swimming pool, a jogging trail, a putting green and a movie theater that shows first-run films on demand. That’s hardly roughing it.
And if the president ever feels the need to get away, let’s say to seek a little solitude and tranquility beyond the confines of hot and humid Washington, the American taxpayers have thoughtfully provided a secluded country residence for the first family’s exclusive use in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountain Park. It’s called Camp David. A hardship post it is not.
What he is thinking, my dear Mr. King, is the same as all other liberal elites think – they are different and better than the hoi-poloi. that they need not concern themselves with sacrificing. That’s what the masses are for. King concludes:
No, Mr. President, Martha’s Vineyard is the last place in the world you should visit next week. You simply don’t have time to take time off from America.
But remember, BHO doesn’t like America. He wants to make us into a Euro-Socialists democracy (as opposed to the Republic, which we are). He doesn’t think he needs the “consent of the governed” because he is so much smarter than the rest of us are. He knows best what we need, even of we disagree. (The sad thing is that some liberals – the 17% of the people who still think Obama is doing a splendid job – do not recognize that the foregoing was sarcasm!)
Tell ya, what, “DUDE.” You hate the job? You hate America? Then why don’t you just go away. Resign. Move to Massachusetts full-time and live off your book royalties and honorarium for your speeches. Better yet, move to France. Or Greece. Or Portugal. Or anywhere that has your favored brand of socialism. Practice what you preach, “DUDE.”
But he won’t. He won’t because because he is a bleeping hypocrite who knows very well what pain his policies are causing, but does not care. He wants it his way. Because he knows what is good for us. He wants us to “eat our peas.” Too bad the peas are spoiled and rotten.
The real reason he goes to Martha’s Vineyard is to raise money. He simply decided that the money to be raised was more important than the feelings of the sheeple. And if we do not toss him out on his ass in 2012, we deserve what we get. Alas we will probably getwhat we deserve.
