Dear Leader 44 rose to his feet at the United Nations today and addressed the General Assembly. He was as dull as ever.

Pharoah Obamses is in trouble. A stumbling legislative programme and approval ratings crashing as fast as the economy tanks means retrenchment. His programme becomes more bogged down by the week, Americans become ever more suspicious of the man they elected and Czars resign even while hundreds of administration apointment remain unfilled.

The crushing disappointment of being a one term wonder looms, so he retreats back to the super soaraway oratory with which he held a nation (ok, its media) in a spell. Except it was always empty drivel to anyone who wanted to know what he actually thought and intended, and now it’s super dull.

“The time has come for the world to move in a new direction. We must embrace a new era of engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect …”

Yeah, heard it before pal. It’s still boring, it’s still empty drivel. Nine months into his reign is time enough to start speaking plain English.

  1. Obama could write the ads for the public sector in The Guardian. Same meaningless BS. I think one of them was featured here a couple of days ago.

  2. Yeah, heard it before pal. It’s still boring, it’s still empty drivel.

    Pete

    I couldn’t have put it better, about this post.

  3. Obama is certainly not as interesting as THIS:

    Even as his party blocks Democratic attempts to expand health insurance for humans, a Republican congressman is trying to round up support for a bill that would provide a $3,500 annual tax deduction for Americans to pay for the medical care of their pets.

    Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) sent out a "Dear Colleague" letter on Tuesday asking fellow members to co-sponsor his Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (HAPPY) Act, despite the upsurge in concern over the rising cost of health care coverage for actual humans.

    "Dear Colleague," the letter reads.

    "According to the 2007-2008 National Pet Owners Survey, 63% of United States households own a pet. Indeed, the human-animal bond has been shown to have a positive effect upon people’s emotional and physical well being. In families with children, pets help to create a nurturing environment and provide ample educational opportunities. For people in later stages of life, pets offer important companionship. No matter the age of the owner, pets have been shown to reduce stress, safeguard against depression, improve social skills, and even ease loss.

    "In light of this, please join me in becoming a cosponsor to H.R. 3501, the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (HAPPY) Act. If enacted, H.R. 3501 would amend the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) to allow an annual tax deduction of up to $3500 for qualified pet care expenses. Specifically, "qualified pet care expenses" would be defined as funds spent in connection with providing care (including veterinary care) for a legally owned, domesticated animal."

    McCotter’s proposed legislation has, not surprisingly, been praised by pet’s rights advocates who say it will help provide proper care for animals and ensure that people suffering from the recession don’t abandon their pets.

    But considering the political context in which the bill is being pushed, it’s hard not to scratch one’s head. It has become a mantra within the GOP that health care reform legislation (for humans) being considered by Democrats would drain the government of money at a time when the deficit is already out of control. Moreover, as pointed out by the site, Blogging for Michigan, the congressman’s legislation would result in many Americans having a greater financial incentive to provide health care coverage to their pets than to themselves.

    The IRS only allows me to deduct medical and dental expenses that exceed more than 7.5% of my adjusted gross income. Here’s an example from their website:

    ‘Your adjusted gross income is $40,000, 7.5% of which is $3,000. You paid medical expenses of $2,500. You cannot deduct any of your medical expenses because they are not more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.’

    But apparently I could deduct up to $3500 that I spend on my dog!

  4. I wish to support Pete’s thesis, in ths thread, by pointing to people in the GOP who are much more interesting.

    I think Eric Cantor’s view on cancer tumours and charity is so much more exciting than Obamabore:

    "At the Richmond Times-Dispatch “public square” forum yesterday, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) fielded open questions from his constituents on the health reform debate for the first time this summer.

    Patricia Churchill relayed a story about a close family member who recently lost a high paying job and her health insurance. Churchill told Cantor that her relative was dying of stomach tumors and needs an operation as soon as possible. Cantor responded by suggesting that Churchill’s relative should seek “existing government programs” or find charity.

    Cantor, who serves as the chief whip for his party, has said that he cannot support a health reform bill with a public option. But despite his political opposition to government insurance programs, Cantor then emphasized to Churchill that every American should be given an “option” for health care, including a government program:

    CHURCHILL: I have a very close relative, a woman in her early forties, who did have a wonderful, high-paying job, owns her own home and is a real contributing member of society. She lost her job. Just a couple of weeks ago, she found out that she has tumors in her belly and that she needs an operation. Her doctors told her that they are growing and that she needs to get this operation quickly. She has no insurance. […]

    CANTOR: First of all I guess I would ask what the situation is in terms of income eligibility and the existing programs that are out there. Because if we look at the uninsured that are out there right now, there is probably 23, 24% of the uninsured that is already eligible for an existing government program […] Beyond that, I know that there are programs, there are charitable organizations, there are hospitals here who do provide charity care if there’s an instance of indigency and the individual is not eligible for existing programs that there can be some cooperative effort. No one in this country, given who we are, should be sitting …"

  5. there are several charges one could levy against Mr. Obama, but his oratorical skills are considerably better certainly than either his rival in the election, and most assuredly his predecessor.
    But I suspect that for some people if Mr. Obama were to say that the sky is blue and water is wet they would criticise and pick holes in his observations. Still, if it brings them contentment to do so then it seems a fairly harmless, if nugatory, pastime.

  6. "Is Barack Obama the most boring man in the world?"

    I’ve just been watching the ‘highlights’ of the Lib Dem conference on BBC 2, and I can say with absolute certainty that he is nowhere the most boring man on Earth.

  7. Very well said Pete. Obama is a disaster. Even the media are having a field day with this. He was supposed to get a standing ovation. He didn’t. It’s all over Obama, games up.

  8. Nine months into his reign is time enough to start speaking plain English.

    I suppose Obamas ability to speak the English language even in a boring way is a vast improvement on his predecessor who had the vocabulary range of a kinder gardener.
