The Over Confident

If you look close you can see his boogers

Nicole Coulter:

Obscure liberal filmmaker Brad Plad of Laguna Niguel, Calif. has been busy producing an epic he says will showcase the record of Barack Obama heading into the 2012 elections. He calls this film that he managed to keep secret until now a potential game changer that will detonate a nuclear bomb among those who doubt President Obama’s true abilities.

“What this film is really all about is showing how against all odds Barack Obama took the average 5.8% unemployment rate under Bush and improved it to an average of 9.5% while heroically blaming Republicans and George Bush the whole time. We also show how he inherited a massive federal deficit and impressively quadrupled it. What you can clearly see in the film is the tremendous growth that’s occurred under his leadership. He’s doing exactly what we elected him to do.”

Making cameo appearances in the epic are: Obama’s community organizer buddy and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers; fundraiser pal and convicted felon Tony Rezko (speaking from prison); lovable loudmouth pastor Jeremiah Wright; convicted felon and former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich; and, Bobby Titcomb, Obama’s childhood friend and current golf buddy who was recently caught soliciting prostitution in Hawaii.

“We wanted to bring in people who’ve known the president since his Hawaii days, and also those who were closest to him during his meteoric rise to power,” Plad explained. “So certainly we were interested in hearing from these close associates. They provide a refreshing glimpse into the mindset of a complex man so many of us think we know. They all sing his praises, of course. Perhaps a little too much.”

Okay, she made it all up, but it’s a movie I’d like to see.

BTW – It was almost three years ago that I got banned from Corrente (my very first banning) for arguing that Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers WAS relevant to his qualifications to be POTUS.

The media that rummaged through Sarah Palin’s garbage and interviewed Levi Johnston (but I repeat myself) are still uninterested in Obama’s friends and acquaintances.

    Yeah – the media has yet to look into any of his past. Not only his associations, but his record in Chicago.

    I had someone say the other day that if Perry jumps into the GOP race, he’ll be tarred with the Bush brush, because he’s an R from Texas too.

    I responded that if I were Perry, I’d wait for the smear, then drily comment that those supporting a man from Chicago, whose most recent Democratic governor is now in federal prison, might not want to be drawing “same state, same party” parallels.

      Rezko, Wright and Ayers were more than just Dick’s casual acquaintances. We know that.

      But exactly how close were they? We don’t know that because Dick won’t talk and neither will they.

        The key to Obama’s rise in Chicago and the network of “friends” who got him there is not Obama. It’s Michelle.

        • WMCB says:

          By which I mean that she had the contacts, not him. She was his “in” to Chicago political pay-to-play culture.

        • myiq2xu says:

          Pretty much everyone in his adult life has been somebody who could help HIM. The instant they can no longer help (or worse, need his help) guess where they get tossed?

        • Dario says:

          Yup, just ask Pelosi how quickly Obama can throw under the bus those he can’t use.

        • Mary says:

          Michelle…….and Valerie Jarrett. Both of them worked with/for the Daley machine.

        • Pips says:

          She’s also his “ticket” to being perceived as black. And the reason why he dropped his white girlfriend.

          While I never doubted that her anger on behalf of and concern for black Americans was genuine, I seriously doubt that he ever gave a damn.

        • jjmtacoma says:

          I don’t know – she has been in positions where she could work to help and it seems if she had helped it would have been trotted out.

        • Pips says:

          Hey jjm, note I used past tense. Entering the Ivory Tower seems to totally change some peoples’ beliefs and perspectives, sad to say.

      Perry has done a terrible job for Texas. That’s why he regularly gets opponents from the Republican as well as Democratic and third parties. No comparison to Bush is needed. Did you hear about the law requiring women to get a sonogram before getting an abortion, no matter how early? Did you hear about the soaring state deficits? (He passed a tax cut offset by business tax increases, but the latter were never actually done.) There was the state-wide toll road that would have required taking large chunks of land through immanent domain from people who did not want to sell. (Now that he has has put on hold as it royally po’ed his base.)

      The World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon is a great place to visit to catch up on Texas political news:

      Now to be fair, he signed a law requiring mammogram reports to include language to help make women aware that they are not very good for women with dense breasts [the failure rate is said to be 50% in one study] and that women should consider discussing additional screening (such as ultrasound) with their doctors. He also signed a law making sure one man cleared of murder and released from death row got compensation which was held up by a technicality. But he is not a moderate. And frankly, I think he makes GW look smart.

    I don’t know about you all, but I would TOTALLY pay to see that movie.

    The trouble with self confidence.

    If Brooks is to be believed, an important shift has taken place in relation to the concept of “self” – and “self-importance” – in American society (if not the western world more generally). In the first half of the twentieth century, he argues, Americans were generally reluctant to talk too much about themselves, or promote themselves too aggressively in public. They were also cautious – or modest – when assessing their own skills.

      Interesting. I just had a conversation 2 days ago with my 20-year-old stepdaughter. She was telling me how aghast she is at the lack of work ethic, the narcissism, the general assholery of many of her generation. She was just gobsmacked at the attitudes she encounters.

      This is a young lady in college with excellent grades, and an almost fulltime job. She’s also a certified mountain guide, a wilderness medicine tech, leads students in rock-climbing trips all over the country, and watches her pennies like a miser. She is not at all lacking in genuine self-esteem – she likes herself and is appropriately proud of her accomplishments.

      So I asked her what she thought the difference was between many of her peers and herself. She thought about it a minute, and said “Dad never gave me anything, tangible or intangible, that I didn’t earn. Except love.”

      There you go. Smart chick.

        You are lucky to have such a great person in your life — and I am sure the reverse is true.
