Okay, Barry, What CAN We Talk About?

Fresh off his “Obamapalooza!” appearance in Oregon (Drudge headlines it “THE OBAMA MASS”), where he had this to say about his “fellow” Americans’ lifestyle: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK….

Yo, Barry? As long as I am willing to pay the freight for my food, lodging and transportation needs, I don’t give a bloody damn what anybody–including you–thinks about it. The idea we need to worry about what other countries think is eerily similar to Horseface Kerry’s 2004 notion of the USA needing approval from other countries when deciding our nation’s policies.

His critique about our consumption decisions is laughable when you consider that in not too short a time China and India will likely outdo the US in this regard, based on their growing economies and larger populations. You think the average Indians are gonna give up their ACs once they get their hands on those suckers? In what Bizzarro World do you believe China’s burgeoning middle class won’t proceed to improve their living standards by following the same patterns Americans did during our country’s post-WWII boom? Are you really that fucking thick?

Anyway, enough with that tangenty rant; back to the original reason I started writing this post. The ObamaMessiah is, once again, deciding what is worthy of public scrutiny vis-a-vis his campaign, and what should be considered completely out of bounds:
ABC News: ‘Lay Off’: Obama Calls Ad Aimed at Wife ‘Unacceptable’

Sen. Barack Obama ripped into a Republican ad today that targets comments made by his wife, Michelle, and called the GOP tactic “low class” and “detestable.”

The Illinois senator told “Good Morning America” that he expects hardball tactics from the Republicans if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee.

“But I also think these folks should lay off my wife,” he told “GMA” as his wife chuckled beside him.

This is getting goddamn ridiculous. Anything Barry doesn’t like voters hearing is immediately some sort of reprehensible act (see: Bush at the Knesset; Rev. Wright; BombBoy Ayers; Rezko, various campaign advisers, et al.) or worse–my favorite Barryism–“distractions.”

Barry? Listen up, you thin skinned, skinny little psuedo-messianic douchebag: you can’t have it both ways:

If Obama doesn’t want his wife to receive criticism, then he shouldn’t use her as a surrogate on the campaign trail. Whatever she says on the stump at campaign events is fair game for criticism, just as it has been with Bill Clinton. Obama’s camp has unloaded on the former President for statements he made about Hillary’s loss in South Carolina and several other incidents in which they believe Bill played the race card to explain Obama’s success. Bill’s not running for anything this year, but he has made himself a public figure in this primary race, and his statements are also legitimate targets for attack.

The whininess factor has become a real problem for Obama. Presumably, we’d like a President who doesn’t play a perpetual victim on the national stage. What happens when he has to tangle with Congress over policy, or more to the point, when he has to represent America on the world stage? If he can’t deal with legitimate political criticism now, what will we get for a response when Obama runs the federal government?

“Screw you Hussein, your wife is fair game!”
