Obamandias Strikes Again

The 2012 Leni Riefenstahl Award goes to Barack Obama:

To Honor Neil Armstrong, Obama Posts a Photo of Himself

The thing that most bothers me about Barack Obama is his unearned narcissism. His smugness and arrogance are beyond the ability of science to measure. I don’t mind someone being a bit cocky or even arrogant, IF they have the accomplishments and achievements to back up the attitude. Obama’s greatest achievement, though, is creating his own personal narrative. He is his own personal touchstone. Even when honoring a great American hero, Obama can’t help but thrust himself into the event.

On Friday, America, and the world, lost a true hero. Neil Armstrong, who died of heart complications at the age of 82, was the first human to walk on the moon. His steps onto the lunar surface were watched by the largest television audience in history. His statement “one giant leap for mankind” echoed throughout the world, allowing people everywhere to step back from the clutter of their daily lives and pause to dream big things. People who witnessed it will never forget it.


Obama took to his tumblr page to offer a tribute to Neil Armstrong. The words–two sentences–are fine in a generic politician way. But, Obama being Obama, he injected himself into the tribute. He included a photo, not of Armstrong or the iconic step onto the lunar surface, but of himself, gazing up at the moon.

Have I mentioned lately how much I despise Barack Obama? That’s because at moments like this (and there have been many, many moments like this) he actually makes me feel embarrassed to be an American.

I’m not talking about shame. I first felt ashamed of my country when I learned that George Bush had approved the use of torture and unlawful detention. That was a stain on our national honor. So is Obama’s policy of assassination. Those are things to be ashamed of.

Obama is an embarrassment. He is our President. Even though I didn’t vote for him he represents me to the world. He represents all of us. When he beclowns himself he beclowns the nation.

Yes, I used that word. That is how strongly I feel.


Verb. To make a complete idiot of oneself in public. To behave or speak in such a way, or to make a comment or express an opinion that is so profoundly witless, senseless and obtuse, that you have forever after defined yourself as a person of comical value only. Never to be taken seriously again. Of worth only as an object of ridicule and derision.

    Obama is a narcissist. He has done more to dismantle NASA than any other president. Why? Well it isn’t about him, the accomplishment make him resemble the speck of sand that he is, it is a scientific culture that is completely foreign to him that he does not understand, but most importantly he (and Jarrett) never figured out a way to turn it into a kickback machine or slush fund like they have with the Energy Dept. Remember that this is the same White House group that was prepared to completely scramble the national GPS system for a crony’s contributions and a piece of the pie to set up a cell phone system. One day we will know the depth of their corruption and what institutions they have de-funded so they could rob them.

    Now I am going to pick up a post surgery relative who is in the path of the hurricane. I know this and can avert a medical disaster based upon information gathered from those NASA developed weather satellites. I guess that they haven’t had enough time to defund the Hurricane Center yet.

    He hasn’t had as much time to campaign as he did in 2008? Isn’t that all he’s done since Jan 2009?

    Red Queen:

    Now you might notice something about all those paragraphs above. Not one sentence is a “YOU MUST” sentence. I use my words. I use my “I” statements. Those are my feelings about my little vote. I got a lot of sheepish “I know he’s a douche but I think I have to vote for Obama” statements from friends last election. And not one single one of them got a “FUCK YOU! YOU HAVE CAUSED THE DOWNFALL OF SOCIETY WITH YOUR VOTE” from me. Because it’s your mother-fucking vote. Vote your interests. Maybe you are ok with Obama. Maybe you are just afeared of a Romney presidency. I don’t know why you vote the way you do. I don’t care. It’s your vote. You do you.

    But if you go around telling people that they must “VOTE FOR LESS EVIL BECAUSE IT’S STILL LESS EVIL” I am going to call you a bullying shitmonster to your face. Because you are. You can list in bullet points why you are voting Team Less Evil! But you don’t get to tell someone else what their own best interests are and how they MUST VOTE OR OMFG WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE IN A FIERY REPUBLICAN RAPTURE!!!!!!!

    Almost there.

    He is the One he was waiting for.

  6. Obama apparently never heard that time worn phrase uttered by my grandmother, my mother and myself in dealing with self-centered offspring.
    “The world does not revolve around you!”

    There is something seriously, seriously wrong with that man- and it scares the shit out of me that he has the codes.

    The problem is that Obama revels in himself. I believe that all pols have a dose of narcissism, and if you wanna become POTUS, you have delusions of grandeur and consider yourself above the rest of us. The point is that these pols rationally know that they themselves have this problem. So they try to mitigate its effects. Its like WJC could ‘connect’ with the masses and ‘feel their pain’, GWB could be the proverbial ‘cowboy’ and ‘dude you’d like to have a beer with’. The problem with BHO is that he revels in his position, influence and power, and likes to flaunt it. He has a professorial attitude. He wants you to know that he is infinitely more intelligent than you could ever be, but worse, he wants you acknowledge that and bow to his wisdom openly and without shame. Thats why he needs and feeds off the adultation of the masses. Thats how we got the Obots. What he cannot tolerate is someone mocking him, or worse, laughing at him. Case in point is WJC and GWB. Both were mocked and laughed at by their opposition, but neither cared a damn. But BHO is very different.

  10. Was just reading the comments on the linked article- and someone pointed out that Obama is gazing at the crescent moon and stars- am now waiting for that to start flying around the web……I can just hear it now!
    “Obama uses Islamic symbolism to diss Christian astronaut”

    Was reminded a few days ago in one of the may articles about Armstrong he took communion secretly on that moon mission.

    Complete derangement, when Obama loses they’re going to have to sedate him:

    Chris Matthews Has Meltdown On Morning Joe


    • SimoFish says:

      Priebus is an idiot. He should have said “that’s what you’re pissed about? You should be pissed at Obama for the economy – where are the jobs? Why aren’t people working? Why don’t business owners have confidence in Obama? Instead you’re pissed about a joke?”.

      When people have jobs, when they are working and have a couple coins rattling around their pocket and they have some self esteem – everything else falls into place. IMO.

      • lyn5 says:

        I bet the Obama media lapdogs surprised Priebus by the race card shit. Tom, you should stay retired. I have no idea what Obama does to his lapdogs, but they sure must like it.

        • cj says:

          I think Priebus was totally shocked…that and trying to dodge the foam coming out of Matthews mouth made it almost impossible to squeeze in any reply at all.

    • leslie says:

      total attack dog – foaming at the mouth and everything! Really, they knew this would happen, Tweety doesn’t like getting up in the morning.

    Fuck Obama and his psycho personality.

    On the other hand, since my Ryan is not an “ash” over Los Angeles, George W has my greatest respect. George W’s water boarding of 3 confessed terrorists was the right decision – the only moral decision. If they had needed a volunteer to slice and dice KSM into tiny slivers to save Americans, I would have volunteered for the privilege and never missed a minute’s sleep. Describing as torture a little water up the nose of someone who enjoyed slicing people’s heads off in his spare time and was planning to fly more planes into downtown LA is absurd. I’ve had more water up my nose doing to the butterfly stroke every Christmas at the Master’s Swim Party competition than KSM ever possibly could have inhaled, and I’m doing just fine!

    There is no stain or shame on “My American National Honor”! God Bless America and those Brave Americans that did what had to be done to protect this Great Exceptional Nation!

    👿 👿 👿

    Just watched the whole talking-heads meltdown clip. The Obama media lapdogs have their heads so far up Obama’s ass that they are brain dead.

  16. WMCB says:

    It’s always all about him. As noted above with the Vietnam War memorial and others, he is incapable of giving honor and attention to anyone else. Remember the inserting himself in previous prez bios?

    Another example: article up about Romney sharing the cash with the rest of the R’s, and Obama’s refusal to do so for D house and senate races.


    This is real schadenfreude for me, because one of the BIG reasons the D party poobahs threw Hillary under the bus was because Pelosi and Schumer and Dean and Brazile and the rest of those pigs saw Obama as the shiny new ATM machine for the party. They thought they’d have endless cash flowing in for the entire party.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Suckers! It couldn’t happen to a slimier nest of snakes. Suck it, Dems. Enjoy those financial fumes from your Boy Wonder Plastic Jesus.

  17. lyn5 says:

    Sing it, sister WMCB!

    At 2:00 p.m. today, Chairman Reince Priebus will call the convention to order and then immediately declare a recess until Tuesday afternoon at 2:00. Oh, but not before starting the “debt clock” that will sit on stage and count down (or is up?) continuously throughout the convention.

  19. carol haka says:

    Maybe we are being too harsh. In that photo, Obama may have just been deciding if he and Michelle’s next vacation should be on the moon or a star and had nothing to do with Neil.


    • carol haka says:

      Actually with those big ears, I think he was anticipating as to whether or not he could fly there himself without the need for a space vehicle.!


      FYI – I have nothing against big ears – just the body those are attached to.

  20. foxyladi14 says:

    For those interested, here’s the revised speaker schedule for the RNC convention 🙂


  21. T says:

    Wouldn’t a narcissist pin back those ears? Gawd, it looks like he could fly away.

    • trixta says:

      In 2008 (during the primaries, I was banned from the HuffPuff Post because I dared to mention Obama’s ears. Actually, tt was in response to someone insulting Hillary looks and age. I said that insulting HRC’s looks would be just a bad as me insulting BO for his dumbo ears. I was unable to log on to that site after that. Assholes! (I have since be unbanned.)
