Asks Jack Tapper in an entry about more make believe in the “who am I going to be today” department.
We remember his getting the “torch” from never-had-it Ted Kennedy (when the media allowed the guy show his face in public with no mention of Chappaquidick, I knew something was in the works).
And then it was the MLK inpersonation – mostly by setting the date of the speech in the Roman temple. That was also significant, as it was planned by the DNC months before any vote was cast.
before all those however it was the second coming of Reagan which to me was the dead give away last January that the production of teflon was going through the roof again.
The Lincoln fantasy is not new, it’s where Obama finds his…humility
“There is a wisdom there,” Obama told interviewer Steve Kroft, “and a humility about his approach to government
Oh yeas , the humility – the word W made famous (“one hs to be humble in foreign policy…”). It goes now to inspire Obama in playing house
The luncheon that will be served in Congress’s Statuary Hall to the president-elect and vice president-elect and their families — as well as congressional leaders, justices of the Supreme Court and pending members of the Obama Cabinet — will be modeled after foods that Lincoln ate and enjoyed.
The first course will even be served on replicas of the china picked out by then-first lady Mary Todd Lincoln at the beginning of her husband’s term in office.
How quaint. Somehow it sends me to images of W in the mirror playing with Saddam’s revolver….
And Jr.jr will go even further in his new impersonation exercise
On the Saturday before his inauguration, Mr. Obama will also travel by train to Washington, D.C., starting in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, where that other lanky Illinoisan spoke while traveling from Springfield, Ill., in 1861
BO is so desperately trying to attach himself to someone’s coattails who actually DID something in their life (other than run for office) he’s becoming a bit unhinged about it, in my opinion. I mean, come ON! Is he going to use period toilet paper (corn cobs) in the presidential loo as well?
I don’t know. But I can’t stop but recognizing the very same hands who transformed Jr from the “My pet Goat” reader to the Churchill/Caesar/Napoleon/Lincoln rolled into one – days after 9.11 – after having him read a speech.
Same invisible hands, same bullhorns, same money, same methods…I mean, how many ways are there of filling an empty suit?
And let’s face it, if they managed to make Jr look competent to some – at least for a while after the major blunder on 9.11, they’ll manage – at least for a while to sell “Honest Barack” as the bidding for his senate seat and other cesspool corrupt politics from his past are spilling over the nation.
here they are feeding the make believe already
