Obama's New Change/Hope Strategy: Ready, Fire, Aim

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Ever been lectured by a know-it-all? That's what we're experiencing with Barack Hussein Obama. Study the void of experience and vagueness of achievement in his resume, except for fainting fans and fawning far lefties, AKA "The Liberal Press."

Welcome to the classroom of Professor Barack Hussein Obama, where I reside as peon with the rest of the 299,999,999 million students from left coast to left coast and all the flyover states in between. That's not counting the starving billions burning their bare feet on the rest of the overheated oil-deficient planet, auditing his lectures. We all take note of the lilt in his voice and the upward tilt of his face as he looks down his teleprompter at us impoverished non-Harvard knuckleheads.

How DID this country survive the last 225 years without him? How WILL we survive if he's not elected?


There are few things worse than an instructor with an arrogant 'tude and factless point of view, one who constantly changes his lectures based on the students with whom he's trying to stay popular at the moment. He cheats the former when he coddles the latter with opposite arguments. Now he's beginning to lose everyone, those inclined to be on his side, and the undecided. Want examples?

  • Barack's pledge to use public money VS private bit the dust when he figured out that two plus two equaled $100 mill or so. At least he sold us out for a lot.

  • His backward and forward flips on the Iraqi war are, at the least, five. John Kerry and Hillary have indeed met their match.

  • He pandered to Jews by pledging his support of Jerusalem as the eternal capitol of Israel, then changed his mind a day later.

  • He said he would filibuster the FISA spying act that releases cooperating phone companies from litigation, then voted for the bill exonerating same.

  • He supported any kind of abortion, yet now he's taking a stand against late term baby murder.

  • He abandoned the gun controllers in his party to support the Supremes who barely upheld us small town dummies and our rights to keep our guns. "Hey, Uncle Redneck, pass me the Jack, the Bible, and the ammo."

  • He equated his white grandma to that America hating racist scion of Louis Farrakhan, the bad Reverend Wrong. Thank the L-rd it became politically convenient for Barack to pull granny out from under that bus.

His flips come at us from all directions without the proper vetting of changed facts. It's all about what he thinks will get him elected at the moment.

Worse, he's not good at it; He's tied with McCain at a time he should be up double-digits in the polls.


The box Barack has put himself in is worse than that other Hussein's spider hole. At least Saddam's mumblings weren't public for a while.

Soon Obama will be off to the Middle East, a place his opponent has toured countless times. Obama won't be alone. He'll be accompanied by three major anchors. Even they must air Barack's lost messianic presence, although I wouldn't bet on it. What else are they going to do to stop the waterfall ratings they're sending downstream to Fox?

Barack can play Chance the Gardener from the movie "Being There," for only so long. Besides, Peter Sellers could act without a teleprompter.

Obama's handlers are stunningly ineffective in stemming his decline against a stumbling old, awkward, yet likeable and humble, John McCain.

One of the great things about this country is we get to grade the teachers that presume to become out leaders.

It's time to flunk Barack or at least give him an incomplete. My recommendation would be a remedial history course with a minor in current events, plus a sentence to go out in the real world and make a living. Then I would recommend an operation to install a spine that will stop him from his urge to surrender on the verge of victory.

Now there's real change we can all hope for.
