Obama – Closing the Gap

Does anybody really believe Obama when he says he will enter into a legislative duel with lobbyists? I picture the schoolyard brawl, where all the kids say, "Obama's gonna fight the lobbyists and special interests at the back of the school, when school is out. Everybody be there."

Obama tries to talk tough however:

"I know these steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business, and I know they're gearing up for a fight," Obama said. "My message to them is this: So am I."

Obama believes that his tough talk can convince the American people that he is serious about this. I don't know about you, but in picking who I would want to help me in a fight, Obama would be way down on that list.

  • Nancy Pelosi,
  • Whoopi Goldberg,
  • Barbara Streisand,
  • and the sissy kid that lived down the block from me when I was a kid.
  • Obama
The idea that Obama will deal with lobbyists and special interest now, is about as smart as putting a screen door on a submarine. Memo to Obama: You've already been ripped off!

In the past sixty days, Obama has supported the passing of $700B of "unaccounted" funding for the financial services industry, tens of billions for the auto-industry, a $787B (let's be honest, over a trillion dollars) "spendulus" plan, a new budget of $400B+ for operating costs through the remainder of the year, and has a $3.55T budget in the works.

The man has been in Washington for less than forty-five days, and he wants us to believe he has single-handedly changed the way those thieving bureaucrats work, and removed all the pork and earmarks from these massive spending plans. Are you convinced? Well I am convinced…that Obama is one silly Negro.

This is what happens, when you elect a no talent hack, who can do nothing but talk. Obama has and always will be the naïve, pie-in-the-sky dreamer. And he is so much a dreamer that when speaks he tries to convince himself of these blatant lies.

How could he possibly overlook the obvious pork and earmarks? Example: $88M to "study" whether or not the Coast Guard needs a new icebreaker. I say let's just save ourselves $88M and buy one! Or maybe the $88M is to study whether they will need one, with all this "global warming" that is happening?

But my favorite is $1.2B for "youth activities". Can you get any more unclear about the purpose of this money. First let's study youth. Then let's study their activities. This will help us to determine what "youth activities" to put the remaining $200B…in condoms! Oh that's right, there is a provision for $400M to help prevent STDs already.

Does any of this sound rather "lobbyish or special-interesty" to you?

Here's the wrap:

Obama said:

"We are closing the gap between the nation we are and the nation we can be by implementing policies that will speed our recovery and build a foundation for lasting prosperity and opportunity."

We are closing the gap alright. Since Obama's election, the stock market has lost half its value. Obama has closed the gap between rich and poor by 50% and in less than 45 days. At this rate America will look like Bangladesh by summer.

As for the schoolyard fight, all the lobbyists and lookers-on are hiding behind the building snickering at Obama. Without even touching him, the lobbyists have him battered and bruised, with two black-eyes and bloody nose.

It's pathetic to know that the person in charge of the country doesn't even know his butt's already been kicked.

That's my rant!

Kevin, this is one of the best. I make less than 30,000 and have saved with Roth and now BO and his family, Pelosi and Biden and all their crooks will be able to retire and I will work to give give give to lazy people who live better than I. Time to impeach before we lose our country. BO is Pelosi and Soros puppet

The Black Sphere said...

Paz, I agree. It won't matter what you make. Obama will need to tax you!

Teresa said...

I feel as if I'm in the middle of a PG Wodehouse book - without the humor. In one of his stories, the main character is afraid he'll be caught out in a lie, the other guy tells him "stick to a stout denial".

Obama is taking this to new heights. He's lying to us directly. Telling the saps one thing and doing something completely different. When called on it, he says, "no I'm not".

Watch and see - he'll keep denying all these things, the press won't argue with him, and once he's denied it long enough - people will believe the lie. If it works, Obama's skills in this area would put Bill Clinton in the shade completely.

The Black Sphere said...

Teresa - Great comparison and analysis!

Ron B said...

Alrighty Kevin....."one silly Negro." Better watch out you gonna lose some BFF's.

Remember the funniest guy in school never got into a fight because he made everybody laugh to keep the bullies at bay and off his butt.

Obama does know that his butt is being kicked. That's why all the distractions. Tax Cheats, battling lobbyists, Porkulus, appeasement to Muslim world, Koreans, Iran and Russia. Keep us occupied worrying about other things while he manages by committee and focus groups to CHANGE this country into France or something worse. A great Illusionist selling America his snake oil. It will cure what ails you!

The Black Sphere said...

@SirRon - "Axe" me if I care about losing BFFs. I am all about the sarcasm...with the point!

Obama the Delusionist has charted a course for failure, as he captains a rudderless ship.

I wish I could agree with you that he is aware, but I can tell you with certainty that he isn't. He is and has always been a "creator of chaos". At the levels he operated in the past, it looked like "achievement". However in the ring, he is a puncher with no power. All he can do is dance around the ring, and do lots of "rope-a-dopes".

Anonymous said...


Yeah, whew boy. I'm sure glad we have a President who is so tough now. He's going to take on those big, bad lobbyists. Sure hope he can handle the Russians (without giving them massive concessions, oops too late), the terrorists, the Middle East, the Israelis, the UN, the EU, the financial mess he has made, his tax cheat cabinet...wait a minute. This guy doesn't have the experience or the guts to handle ANY of it.

We're so screwed.

Thanks for the great read! I can't believe people bought into the line that THIS is the new messiah!!! Don't they know who the REAL Messiah is???

Who does this sound like?

* Believing that you're better than others
* Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
* Exaggerating your achievements or talents
* Expecting constant praise and admiration
* Believing that you're special
* Failing to recognize other people's emotions and feelings
* Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
* Taking advantage of others
* Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
* Being jealous of others
* Believing that others are jealous of you
* Trouble keeping healthy relationships
* Setting unrealistic goals
* Being easily hurt and rejected
* Having a fragile self-esteem
* Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional

Well, yeah, my ex-husband, but right now the subject is Obama. These are symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder.

So not only does he not know he's getting his butt kicked, he doesn't even think that it's possible to get his butt kicked.

I saw a news commentator interviewing a a young 30ish, Obama follower, and when asked whether she would always back her candidate even if he is wrong and leads the county into financial destruction, she laughed, and said 'Yes, always, no matter what! Scary stuff, indeed.
ELCee, you are so right on with your list! I left one of those relationships behind also, only now to have one as POUS, is quite disgusting.
Rosemary, buying a new toothbrush to brush the teeth doesn't help either, the nasty taste just won't go away! Although, those chocolate mint patties the Girls Scots sell does do the trick for awhile :)

Kevin, this rant is priceless!
What TV show? What did I miss?

Paul Mitchell said...

I can almost picture Barry entering into a dual with his pick for US Trade Representative, Ron Kirk. You know, since Kirk is one of the wealthiest lobbyists for Goldman Sachs. AND a tax cheat.

Anonymous said...

Great analogy Kevin! I was thinking that BO reminds me of a small child pushing and pushing the parents (we the people) just to see how far he can go without getting in trouble. Then pushing it a tad further.
I honestly believe that he knows exactly what he is doing. Make it terrible and blame Bush. Spring will bring the shovel ready jobs (that where already in the works) and the markets won't have anywhere else to go but up (eventually), so then he'll take the credit of reviving the economy. Scary that the libs will believe him and continue to drink the kool-aid.

Anyone read "Animal Farm" recently? It has been a few years for me, so I'm a bit foggy on some of the details and characters.

Can we say Pelosi is Sqealer? I just like comparing her to a pig. Maybe that is too nice, or not very fair to pigs, because they are supposed to be pretty intelligent.

Although not quite the same, I see way too many similarities in the present circumstances.

Great blog, as usual, Kevin!

drjim said...

Rock On, Kevin!

The Black Sphere said...

@Elcee - Yes, he is a narcissist, however he knows he's in over his head. Polls are at 56% now, and that lead balloon is still tethered to his...package!

The Black Sphere said...

@Rose-Bud We are producing videos, and other TV segments soon. You will really enjoy them! Promise!

The Black Sphere said...

@TwoDogs - Very familiar with Ron Kirk. He was the mayor Dallas, when I lived there, and he was "ok" I will admit. He tried helping Blacks, and didn't do the normal poverty pimping, leaving that to John Wiley "Coyote" Price. But it doesn't surprise me about the taxes.

The Black Sphere said...

@Lilly - He can try to blame Bush and has, but this one is planted firmly on his rather feminine shoulders.

The Black Sphere said...

@The Bearclaw - What up Melissa. You need to drop in, or let's get together to watch a movie or something. Keep in touch. And yes I do vaguely remember Animal Farm. That is my view of the Dem controlled congress...a bunch of animals.

Paul Mitchell said...

Kevin, you could have someone standing in front of a crowd doing the Sprinkler and look sane in comparison to the Dallas City Council and School Board. I think you might be grading on the curve.

Pandering Puppet as a President!
Shameful state for the Great US Of A to be in! I am appalled!

@TwoDogs - "The Sprinkler", now THAT was dancing, my friend! Too funny. The Dallas School Board is a blog all itself. Particularly when Yvonne Gonzales was there! Whew!

Anonymous said...


He knew EXACTLY what he was going to do, over a year ago. The entire campaign was a sham, a simple shell game, where the pebble was never found. Maybe they should put him on the lot with all those new SUV's and let him sell them. He is really good at selling you something:
You don't need
You don't want
You can't afford

maddmath said...

I don't know why anyone would believe a word BO says. Everything he says is a lie. He can't tell the truth to save his life. Many times I think he says it to convince himself of his own BS. Trying to serve the BS and convince himself it doesn't stinks. Well, Americans are starting to notice and our noses work.

This whole thing shows how irrational he is. Keeps denying the reality that is right in front of him. Saying the elephant isn't in the room when it's there for everyone to see. Perhaps next, he's going to tell us the sky is pink. What scares me is that then 52% surveyed will say that the sky is indeed pink and thank Obama for enlightening them to that "fact".

namaste said...

"this is what happens when you elect a no talent hack who can do nothing but talk."

that about sums up our state of affairs. come on 2012!

nice rant, kevin.

Namaste - Thanks for visiting and commenting again! Kevin

The problem is, people believe him. When asked, they support him. When asked why, they have no reason except that we needed to change. When asked how we needed to change, they haven't a clue...except that they needed to get something for free.

Joe - There is always somebody with his hand out.

Ok, I just have to ask Ron and Kevin, What is a BFF? I should probably know this, but I don't and I do make it a practice to learn a new thing a day, this will have to do. Loved the post.

Is Obama Nazi Pelosi's bitch or is in the other way around... or both of them are Godzillery's bitches?

The Pondering Catholic said...

Yeah, the "youth activities" is a great pick. The sad part, is that the liberal bots actually think he is talking about the stuff they will do at the community organization locations, and not the sex by teens. We will be funding their sex, and their abortions, through that section. I mean after all, he does not want his daughters punished with a baby, so I am sure he does not want is socialistic government punished with a baby either.

WebSmith said...

If the things that Obama is doing were not so destructive, you might call him silly. Legislation has been introduced and/or passed, at the request of lobbyists, that will destroy small business, which is the foundation of our economy. Federal spending of the GDP has increased from 22% to 28% and it increases with each one of these spending bills. Taxes are being implemented that will take much more money from the poor than Obama will give them.

The Reverend Wright appears to be on the verge of realizing what Obama is actually doing to his congregation. The fireworks should be entertaining.

@Web - I am interested in what you are alluding to with Rev. Wright?
