Obamandias

obama-the-sphinx

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Obamandias, The Lightbringer:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

    As a Percy Shelley fan I have to say this is a very nice take on Ozymandias…nicely done…fitting, indeed…

    Koffler rant ….. sweet geebus, beat by Russia playing the diplomacy card? Where does that leave the almighty Senate and House debates and votes this week? Never mind the spoon, but a cork on their forks !

      She just cut Kerry’s legs out from under him.

      Why are they letting Hillary make the points on this rather than Kerry?
      I would think there was some conscience reason but probably it’s just a random blunder and regular Obot tone deafness. Now they are alienating another wing of their party of idealistic idiots.

    Twitter says Zimmerman is in police custody in Orlando for some kind of altercation involving a gun.
    Dude shoulda stay out of FL – he’s a marked man there.

    It must be really frightening to the Russians to realize that American idiots have control of nuclear weapons.

    • DandyTIger says:

      “Obstruction”? WTF? So not fighting for AQ after they likely used chemical weapons, which happens to agree with 80% of the population is obstruction. Well, that certainly made my ’16 vote easy. Anyone but Hillary.

      • wmcb says:

        Whatever happened to “dissent [especially over war]is patriotic?”

        Either she’s a snake, or the Borg has such dirt on her/Bill as to effectively control them. Either way, she’s dead to me. This was voluntary water-carrying on her part. She is not part of his administration anymore.

        Color me disgusted.

    • Constance says:

      Well as long as there are no spontaneous demonstrations going on I don'[t see what difference it makes to Americans. Those spontaneous demonstrations are deadly though.

    • angienc says:

      Syrian rebels have used a machete to behead at least one Orthodox priest and Hillary thinks my not wanting to help them is “obstruction.”
      Fuck her.

    Via Hot Air:

    Over just the past week, the share of Americans who oppose U.S. airstrikes in Syria has surged 15 points, from 48% to 63%, as many who were undecided about the issue have turned against military action. By contrast, the share of Americans who support airstrikes remains virtually unchanged: Just 28% favor U.S. military airstrikes against Syria in response to reports that its government used chemical weapons.

    The new survey by the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY, conducted Sept. 4-8, 2013 among 1,506 adults nationwide, finds that this growing opposition to Syrian airstrikes is intense: 45% say they oppose airstrikes very strongly. That is roughly three-times the percentage (16%) that strongly favors airstrikes.

    This is after a week-long PR offensive by the White House.

    all of this to divert our attention from the piss poor economy, the illusions of Obamacare and the impending entanglements of immigration reform…..what a bunch of suckers!

    The House of Saudi is going to be really pissed at Bronco if he doesn’t get the regime changed in Syria for them. Putin winning the pipeline war is not what they gotta have. I wonder what they will do to Bronco for screwing it up?

      • Lulu says:

        I was thinking the idiot Repubs should ask Putin if he would consult for a fee on how to ditch Broncobamacare. He would probably tell them just go for single payer and stop acting like dicks. It would be cheaper than Obamacare.

    Americans tend to have horrible cultural blindness. We tend to assume other cultures are just like us “deep down”. Hogwash. They are not. Yes, Assad is a brutal dictator. But from what I’ve seen of the ME, some sort of repressive regime seems to be the only kind that ever keeps shit together over there. It’s either total control or chaos, always. Maybe they want/need a strongman. If so, I hope for them a relatively benign one. Maybe our ideas of liberty and self-rule are way too culturally foreign to them. Maybe they will get there eventually. Or not. I dunno. It’s all very sad. But I do know that it’s not our problem, it’s theirs.

      The Sudan, one of the worst places on earth, has any number of government over the years. One part is Christian and the other is Muslim. The only time there’s peace is when a military strongman is in charge.

      The most functional democracies have been the result of popular uprisings. The people decide they don’t want to be ruled anymore. When a democratic system is imposed, people decide to vote for the tribe or ethnic group they belong to because they don’t feel the need for self-rule.

    per kerry : Russia offering to help with Syrian chemical weapons because they’re worried about backtrack

    Koolaid is one hell of a drug

    • Lulu says:

      If there is any concern about Bronco it is how do they keep him where he is so they can continue to wipe the floor with him. That is why Putin whipped out the chemical weapons removal plan delaying game just before Broncobama was beaten to a pulp in Congress. It is like a prize fight, you don’t knock them out the first round but just keep knocking them around then back off. It is cruel, entertaining and useful. Kerry, Samantha Power and Susan Rice have amply shown in just the last couple of days how clueless, delusional, and deeply stupid the Backtrack cabal of wrinkly fore-headed (Powers and Rice crinkle up when they try to think as it is a Ivy League learned mannerism and poker tell that they don’t know what the fuck they are talking about), earnestly superior the academically brainwashed elitists really are.
