Good grief, I feel dirty even thinking the man's name--ugh. He becomes more distasteful on a minute-by-minute basis and it's getting to the point whenever I hear his name, the very next thing to cross my mind is, "Oh God, NOW what!"
Yes, he's that bad. And getting worse.
The first headline was this: "Oops! Obama's Faux Presidential Podium" at The Purple People Vote. KMorrison notes the illegality of the picture with this:
Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.What picture? What was this little tidbit? I schlepped on over to see and found this picture:
What the hey? The next headline at RCP was this: "John McCain: Obama Seal-Progressive Fascism's Cautionary Icon" at Hickeysite and Pat Hickey had this to write about it on his site:
Like the character of Sinclair Lewis' novel [It Can't Happen Here], Buzz Windrip, Barack Obama sweeps throngs of people up in whirlwind of pagentry and windy rhetoric.The entire article is WELL worth reading.
Moving right along at RCP, I came upon the NEXT article addressing this issue, "The Great Seal of Obamaland" at the NYT Caucus blog and a quick quote from THIS article (wow the NYT ALLOWED this dissension to be published? Sultz must be on vacation!:
Just above the eagle’s head are the words “Vero Possumus,” roughly translated “Yes we can.” Not exactly E Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One), the motto on the presidential seal and the dollar bill. Then again, Mr. Obama is not the president.Ouch.
The final article (and most voted) was titled :"Holy Arrogance Batman! Obama 'Presidential Seal' Causes Backlash" at DONE (Democrats Over Nominating Elitists) had this to say:
The comments in that article are priceless.
It appears Obama has been in touch with Diebold and decided to let the cat out of the bag early. That’s right, voters, you can stay home. As the good half-people of Florida and Michigan learned, democracy doesn’t matter. His Highness Obama — with an assist from the wise, hardened, probing American media — has declared himself Holy American Emperor.
The unveiling of his seal is not the first time Obama has unwittingly admitted he’s already garnered enough votes to be President. In fact, he recently told a Chicago audience that’s he’s already won election and re-election:
It seems Barack Hussein Obama goes out of his way to show his arrogance, snobbery, elitism and disdain for "ordinary folk" as we cling to our guns and religion. It seems he has no concept of reality and is truly living in a fantasyland brought about by constant association with crooks, thieves, liars, terrorists domestic and foreign. He so desperately wants the Kennedy mantle, Michelle so desperately wants the Jackie O mantle--and yet, there is absolutely nothing, NOTHING there to back up the rhetoric. Nothing.
He has yet to address anything of substance, preferring to continue the ridiculous whining and crying over race and every single perceived--PERCEIVED--slight of anything anyone says. I'm sure he would prefer each of our mouths and brains were put into a lockable freezer and tossed in the deepest crevice in the Antarctic. Thought police, though control, censoring the First Amendment--while decrying it all as perceived slights. And simultaneously showing his incredible, insufferable, arrogant ego. He thinks we're still in the early 60's, politics wise. He was barely cognizant of life in the early 60's, let alone politics. And what he was cognizant of was learning islam in the madrassas, under the tutelage of his muslim father and stepfather. Of course, there was the socialism counterbalance of his mother when he got home as well.
He gleefully assumes we are all just hanging on his every word with baited breath.
He assumes we fall into lockstep with his "Messiah" image so much so he can now take liberties with the Presidential Seal.
Here's a clue, BHO--Get over yourself. Start addressing the issues as to how they relate in the 21st century. Real issues like foreign and domestic terrorism. Taxes (you really think we're stupid enough to allow you to give our hard earned money away in your pet projects? You're NUTS!), oil, not falling for political scams (globull warming anyone?). Start acting like someone presidential if you want to be president. This isn't a game, this is life, real life, and you better come to the table prepared to act like an adult instead of like a child just promoted from the baby table. Or, maybe you were promoted to the adult table too quickly and need to be returned to the baby table.
You are an atrocity, Barry. A pimple on the nose of this great country. Once the pus is drained, nothing is left but a big hole of nothing. You are that big hole of nothing
