This is why we needed the fighter…

Twice in this election America was offered a choice between a fighter and a brand. Once with Hillary who would not give up, she is not a quitter. And once with MAC, a man who does not know the meaning of the word quit. Now the media who sold the brand seem to have developed a resistance to their kool aid fix and are wondering why all the fumbling  from Teh One..

Gee if only we had a fighter, someone who was ready on day one.

Or you know, someone with a track record of hard work and sacrifice, I remember two such candidates this Fall but the media and the Europeans seemed confident experience and guts and sheer perseverance (something Hillary and Mac demonstrated in their lives) were not a prerequisite to CiC.

And seeing how badly Team Obama is handling economic and diplomatic priorities it makes me shudder to consider what would happen in an actual critical physical crisis of some sort like a massive earthquake or pandemic..could he tear himself away from his plans for cap and trade or a cocktail party??

All the foreign money that poured into Team Obama unchecked. And here we are. Hope the Europeans are happy, they helped make Obamapalooza a success. From UK Telegraph via HA:

The American source said: “Obama is overwhelmed. There is a zero sum tension between his ability to attend to the economic issues and his ability to be a proactive sculptor of the national security agenda.

“That was the gamble these guys made at the front end of this presidency and I think they’re finding it a hard thing to do everything.”

The Democratic strategist stressed that Mr Obama’s plight was nothing new. “He knew it was going to be tough; he said as much throughout the campaign. But there’s a difference between knowing it is going to be tough and facing the sheer relentless pressure of it all.”

Gee if only we had candidates who had run who understood SHEER RELENTLESS PRESSURE.

“The one real serious flaw I see in Barack Obama is that he thinks he can manage all this,” the well-known figure told a Washington official, who spoke to this newspaper. “He’s underestimating the flood of things that will hit his desk.” A Democratic strategist, who is friends with several senior White House aides, revealed that the president has regularly appeared worn out and drawn during evening work sessions with senior staff in the West Wing and has been forced to make decisions more quickly than he is comfortable.

What he can’t vote PRESENT?? He has to choose, possibly make someone unhappy? Make a judgement call on his feet? Whoudda thunk it?

He said that on several occasions the president has had to hurry back from eating dinner with his family in the residence and then tucking his daughters in to bed, to conduct urgent government business. Matters are not helped by the pledge to give up smoking.

Again this is a surprise to whom exactly? CAN’T HE JUST EAT HIS WAFFLE?!!! WHAT DO PEOPLE WANT FROM HIM??LEAVE BAWACK ALONE!!!

Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president’s surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.

“People say he looks tired more often than they’re used to,” the strategist said. “He’s still calm, but there have been flashes of irritation when he thinks he’s being pushed to make a decision sooner than he wants to make it. He looks like he needs a cigarette.”

Another SHOCKAH!!! You have to think on your feet without sleep, you know like at 3AM…
