Nice Work If You Can Get It

American Thinker’s Greg Lewis has presented the Obama administration all too accurately in I Was a Teenage President.

The Obama administration resembles nothing so much as a big house in the suburbs where the parents are away for the weekend. In the absence of any responsible person to take charge, the Teenager-in-Chief is letting the rest of the adolescents run wild.

They've maxed out their parents' credit cards and have begun working on their overdraft lines in earnest . . .

Which is pretty funny, if you can get past the fact that he is describing the dismantling of the republic. I think the country is waking up to discover that we, or some of “we,” have elected a completely inexperienced president with the maturity of a  frat guy, the ego of a quarterback, and the intelligence of a linebacker on a football scholarship. And he’s hired all the terribly clever – not wise, clever - guys that he found so amusing and sophisticated as they sat around the student union plotting the takeover of the misguided American government when they were young.

The unseasoned, untested neophyte was elevated to superman status by a machine that he was led to believe he was driving. In fact, he was already obliviously in way over his head. Then, as is usually the case with pawns, the handlers blew enough smoke up his ass to inflate his head. Once such pawns begin to believe  their own press clippings, they become a made man.

The mystery is why the American electorate believed his clippings? Partially it was because Bush fatigue had established the perfect platform for hopenchange. Partly it was due to the nauseating  cheer leading by the MSM, combined with their suppression of any negative vibes related to the anointed one. For example,  BO’s affiliation with known America haters Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers was relegated to  paranoia, “birthers” were, and still are, ridiculed for raising a legitimate question which has yet to be properly addressed. His apparent disdain for middle Americans “clinging to their guns and religion” and his admonition to Joe the Plumber that we need to “spread the wealth around” went unchallenged by anyone other than Fox. And no one, but no one, on the MSM side of the dial thought it odd that Barack Obama made it through 2 ivy league universities without any academic records, grades, papers or even edited articles in the Harvard Law Review to show for his efforts. And even though BHO himself conceded he’d messed up with drugs while he was young, not one old media type was interested enough to to pursue it so as to ensure that he hadn’t been a crack addict anytime in the distant - or even near - past.

Worse, anyone with the audacity to question the dope (BO, not the drugs) was immediately marginalized as a racist rightwing hate monger. With help like that, we might have elected anyone. Oh wait, we did.
