In concert with the header of today’s piece, one might well concur that in addition to casting no shadow, Obama has no reflection, either. Obama the rogue fraud’s term as “president”, the political equivalent of squatting in and defacing We The People’s White House, will have irreversibly damaged the Republic and its Constitution by the time he gets booted out. I might also infer that Obama the rogue fraud “president” is the worst president in American history, but in my humble opinion, he is the worst AMERICAN in American History. Obama is the Anti-Madison, the man who came to take our Constitution away from us. Obama’s invisible shadow is everywhere. It exists everywhere there is an unemployed American citizen, an illegal alien, an American who can no longer see his or her doctor, a bankrupt business, a riot, a racially motivated murder, etc. Just as the ghosts of FDR and LBJ still haunt the halls of government, so will this shadowless ghost keep the nation in darkness for generations to come.
Although he casts no shadow, Obama the rogue fraud “president” has transformed the country as he promised, much to the chagrin of those who shadow-voted him in. Maybe a Republican president with a Republican Congress can repeal Obamacare, reduce the debt, and secure the border with immigration reform. But Iran now has nuclear weapons, and also the next President will have to deal with a war in the Middle East, just as GWB had to deal with Sept 11 following yet another Democrat disaster in the wake of Bubba Clinton’s spinelessly-weak foreign policy. Then the Dems will attack the President just as they attacked Bush. Plus the next President will have to spend money to rebuild our military. So while Obama has no shadow, we will still have to deal with the consequences of his surrender to Iran. Plus, he leaves the economy and foreign policy in an absolute shambolic mess.
You know you are screwed when the alleged President of the United States says his smartest decision ever was to add Joe Biden to the ticket. The liberal tribe who elected this empty-suit always confuses condescending narcissism with intelligence. Will they ever recover from their naive foolishness and join the rest of us in the real world? It will take much more than a year to clean up this mess. Obama may not have a shadow, but he leaves depravity and destruction in his wake, in addition to which, he has also forced the sullen Democrat party into ownership of the disastrous Iran deal – Mikulski’s cave-in yesterday assured Democrat ownership of a deal surrendered to “Death to America” Iranian Mullahs.
Obama has cast a long invisible shadow over the world that will never be removed. He has ushered in an era of chaos the likes of which the world has rarely, if ever, seen. Mass migrations of millions of refugees; nuclear weapons proliferation; the empowerment and financing of fanatical terrorists encroaching on ever more territory and with ever more resources, mostly provided by Obama; economic collapse; civil discord; a collapse of the rule of law; an incipient race war; wanton murder of police officers; violent protest groups encouraged and incited; disease proliferation with mass migration; collapse of institutional competence and a citizenry apoplectic over bureaucratic malfeasance; use of government institutions to attack and suppress citizen opposition to his policies; cronyism and corruption run rampant. an imperial presidency run amok; famine; pestilence; distrust, prevarication; incompetence; mass murder; massive loss of human life among emigrees; destabilization of governments around the world; a tyrannical narcissistic vision so constrained as to be absurd. He has single-handedly created the conditions for Armegeddon, insomuch as the global destruction of human civilization as we know it is imminent, and all thanks to Obama
Yet it all seems such a shame. While the man may cast no shadow, his legacy of destruction, anti-western ideology, false economics, international naivete, and all the rest will cast a great pall over the future of mankind as it struggles to rediscover the bases of liberty and true opportunity.The United States had just one chance to elect the first black man as president – and it was wasted on him. All we can do now is see that the one chance to elect the first woman president isn’t similarly wasted.
And now on to R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The American Spectator and his insightful “President Obama’s Peculiarity” …
This week I am filing a world exclusive! Remember you read it here first!!
For years I have maintained a team of investigators sedulously trailing our president. They have studied pictures of him. They have inquired of photographers and camera crews who employ both still and video cameras to cover the President. My investigators have interviewed White House journalists, occasionally White House employees, and, of course, White House visitors even tourists. All have been asked the same question: “Have you ever seen the President’s shadow?”
Every interviewee who would answer the question has confirmed my suspicion. They have not seen President Barack Obama’s shadow. The reason for this curious phenomenon is that he casts no shadow. Despite all the power at his command he roams the world leaving no shadow. The sun may shine down upon him. A wall of floodlights may illuminate him. Yet beyond his neat and well-tailored physique he leaves no shadow, no silhouette, nothing. Zilch, as they say. He is that insubstantial. He is a community organizer. He is not a president.
Gertrude Stein is famous for saying “There is no there there.” Well, with President Obama things get worse. There is no shadow there. Our 44th president will go down in history as the first American president who left the White House leaving nothing but a vast diapasonal sigh of relief across the nation. Even some of his supporters will be relieved when he is gone.
Oh there will be wreckage. Our healthcare system, once the ideal of the world, is in ruins. Fragments of legislation clutter the landscape such as Dodd-Frank. The national debt was dangerously high when he entered office; now it has more than doubled—if not tripled. Yet nothing substantial or constructive has been achieved. A year after President Obama vacates the White House almost any Republican president working with the Republican Congress will have cleaned up the mess—except for the debt. That will take longer. In foreign policy things may be even worse. A nuclear Iran will have to be dealt with. When the President without a shadow leaves office after withdrawing American power from every corner of the world, Americans will see how dangerous a community activist can be in the White House.
So the President will leave wreckage, but he is not going to leave a shadow. He has not got one.
Now reportedly he has been trying to sabotage Hillary Rodham Clinton’s run for the presidency. He has sent Valerie Jarrett out to leak damaging information about her. Hillary apparently sent and received classified information on her personal server whose backup was a toilet in Colorado. She committed various misdemeanors and felonies. Well, Mr. Shadowless President, you have got to do better than that with a slippery lady like Hillary.
President Obama seems to realize this, and so last week he came up with a candidate of his own, Vice President Joe Biden. At a press conference the President’s spokesman, the amusingly named Josh Earnest, was asked about the spreading rumors that Mr. Biden was going to enter the race. Mr. Earnest’s response was: “The president has indicated that his view that decision that he made, I guess seven years ago now, to add Joe Biden to the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision that he has ever made in politics[italics added]. And I think that should give you some sense into the president’s view into Vice President’s aptitude for the top job [italics added once again].”
Asked further by reporter Jonathan Karl if the “President would support Vice President Biden if he were to run? And this is obviously, you know, a better decision than the secretary of state that he chose [Hillary],” Earnest answered: “Yeah, it was….” No italics necessary.
Now with her polls sinking across the nation, and voters indicating to the Quinnipiac poll that they associate her name with words such as “dishonest,” “liar,” and “untrustworthy,” this is about the best news Hillary has had in months. President Obama, the president who casts no shadow, is endorsing Joe Biden to be his successor. Nothing to worry about with a Biden candidacy, right Hillary? Now all Mrs. Clinton has to worry about is Donald Trump and a dozen or so other Republican candidates. For Hillary things are looking up.
But remember you first read it here. President Obama casts no shadow!
