Barry Don’t Know Much About History, but it Don’t Matter When You’ve Declared You Will Save the World

Gaffemaster Alert: The Pearl Harbor Bomb

Barack Obama must have gone off script again in West Lafayette, Indiana on Wednesday. When addressing the crowd on national security, Obama mangled the attack on Pearl Harbor. For a Hawaii native, this tops the Young Gaffer list of historical fumbles (via Dean Barnett):

But it is wonderful to be back in Indiana. In a few moments, we’ll open up the discussion. But I want to offer a few comments about some of the emerging threats that we face in the 21st century and offer some ideas about how we can face those threats.

Throughout our history, America’s confronted constantly evolving danger, from the oppression of an empire, to the lawlessness of the frontier, from the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor, to the threat of nuclear annihilation. Americans have adapted to the threats posed by an ever-changing world.

Just to clarify: a whole lot of bombs fell on Pearl Harbor. And the threat wasn’t the bomb, it was the empire that send massive waves of planes to drop them on our Pacific Fleet. Those bombs fell because we didn’t adapt to the threat, and in fact we kept telling ourselves that we could talk the Japanese out of their policy of aggression and empire. We came within a few aircraft carriers of losing the Pacific out of our willful blindness to the nature of the Japanese.

As always, Barry’s blatant, self-serving idiocy when it comes to the real world–the one not found in his carefully scripted bullshit–will get a big, fat pass from the MSM. They are too invested in his candidacy at this point to even attempt to get off the Obama bus, too fearful of joining the other “distractions” Barry’s already tossed beneath the vehicle’s wheels. Look at the New Yorker cover histrionics; no one paid any attention to the story inside, which portrayed Barry as just another Chicago political hack.

Questioning anything concerning The Messiah is verboten:

You had better mind your manners with regard to Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

You can’t disagree with him. You can’t question the legitimacy of his many platitudes and promises. And you had better watch it when you offer a litany of his flip-flops or point out his crass opportunism.

Be forewarned: If you say, sing, write, draw, paint or sculpt anything unflattering about Obama, expect the Spanish Inquisition. The salvational fervor and unfiltered euphoria surrounding the man have cast a halo around his head. A halo, as you know, suggests something otherworldly.

And don’t you DARE mess with his Baby Mama!

But seriously, folks, who the fuck does this guy think he is? And just what the hell constituency does he represent, other than his own, lonesome (if you subtract his 300 plus “adviser” retinue), holier-than-thou anointment as THE ONE?

Really, the dude thinks he’s bigger than Neo:

Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted “present” nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself.

It is a subject upon which he can dilate effortlessly. In his victory speech upon winning the nomination, Obama declared it a great turning point in history — “generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment” — when, among other wonders, “the rise of the oceans began to slow.” As Hudson Institute economist Irwin Stelzer noted in his London Daily Telegraph column, “Moses made the waters recede, but he had help.” Obama apparently works alone.

Obama may think he’s King Canute, but the good king ordered the tides to halt precisely to refute sycophantic aides who suggested that he had such power. Obama has no such modesty.

It kinda scares the shit out of me that this egotistical jackass is getting such a huge pass from an overwhelming majority of the MSM. His upcoming Mid East/Europe concert tour is going to be an egregiously illicit huge chunk of free advertising. You wait, and watch. I will put money down that NOT ONE of those simpering syncophants will make note of his absolute failure as the Chair of the Senate sub-comittee overseeing what’s going on in Afghanistan vis a vis NATO acting like gutless punks. None of them will note that he has already gone on record that he doesn’t give a shit what the commanders on the ground have to say; he’s hellbent on pulling out in every way.

The only thing that keeps me thinking that, sooner better than later, the MSM will get their collective ass together and actually vet this guy, is that they will, for sheer self-preservation, realize that the vast majority of us unwashed assholes have discerned that they have been twisting the coverage and will at least attempt to make some kind of reparation.

For the first few months of the campaign, the question about Obama was: Who is he? The question now is: Who does he think he is?

We are getting to know. Redeemer of our uninvolved, uninformed lives. Lord of the seas. And more. As he said on victory night, his rise marks the moment when “our planet began to heal.” As I recall — I’m no expert on this — Jesus practiced his healing just on the sick. Obama operates on a larger canvas.

But I still think the Yankees have a credible shot at winning the AL East. So it’s all one frakkin’ huge grain of salt if you listen to me..
