Barack Obama Is A Thin-Skinned Liar

Fake Obama

I know you are just as shocked as I am, which is to say not shocked at all. But now we get it straight from the handler who put an empty suit in the White House. Here’s Michael Calderone:

President Barack Obama is an avid reader of the New York Times opinion section and has, on several occasions, invited two of his favorite columnists — Tom Friedman and David Brooks — over to the White House before rolling out major policy initiatives.

But Obama is apparently not a fan of Maureen Dowd, another high-profile writer in the Times opinion stable. Former top Obama adviser David Axelrod wrote in Believer, his memoir published Tuesday, that “no one got under Barack’s skin more than Maureen,” and suggested she altered her coverage after a tense meeting with the president, a charge she rejects.

Axelrod recalled how Dowd was granted a brief interview during an overseas 2008 campaign trip with then-candidate Obama. When the two were together, he wrote, Obama “proceeded to blister her for a previous column she had written.”

The former adviser wrote that Dowd’s “penchant for delving into the psyches of her subjects was particularly irritating to the self-possessed Obama.”

“Normally polite under any circumstances, he was patronizing and disrespectful to Maureen in a way I had rarely seen,” Axelrod continued. “This was not well received by Dowd who, like most journalists, was accustomed to firing off salvos, yet decidedly uncomfortable when fired upon herself. After that awkward encounter, she seemed to take particular delight in psychoanalyzing Barack and belittling him in print, which only deepened his contempt. Maureen, who is as gracious and loyal to her friends as she is rough on the high and mighty, would become a friend of mine in Washington, which became a minor source of tension with Obama. ‘Why are you friends with her?’ he would demand after Maureen sent one of her acid darts his way.”

He’s an avid reader of the NYT’s op-ed page? I thought he didn’t pay attention to that stuff?

But wait! There’s more!

Barack Obama misled Americans for his own political benefit when he claimed in the 2008 election to oppose same sex marriage for religious reasons, his former political strategist David Axelrod writes in a new book, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics.

“I’m just not very good at bullshitting,” Obama told Axelrod, after an event where he stated his opposition to same-sex marriage, according to the book.

Axelrod writes that he knew Obama was in favor of same-sex marriages during the first presidential campaign, even as Obama publicly said he only supported civil unions, not full marriages. Axelrod also admits to counseling Obama to conceal that position for political reasons. “Opposition to gay marriage was particularly strong in the black church, and as he ran for higher office, he grudgingly accepted the counsel of more pragmatic folks like me, and modified his position to support civil unions rather than marriage, which he would term a ‘sacred union,’ ” Axelrod writes.

Noah Rothman at Hot Air has a pretty good take on this. I will say that I agree with Obama – he’s a lousy bullshitter. I saw thru him from the start. Only a complete moron would have believed his lies.

That doesn’t mean that all of Obama’s followers are complete morons. Some of them knew he was lying but supported him anyway. That includes most of the journalists and Journolists in the Lamestream Media.

    Brian Williams is going to get fired for exaggerating the danger he was in while in Iraq, and other tall tales, that do not directly affect Americans.
    Barack Obama lied his way into the Oval Office, twice, and os never facing any consequences for it.

  2. Lulu says:

    President Kanye Obama acts like a dick. Who could have guessed observing him in 2008 that he would act like this? /s/

  3. 1539days says:

    Obama announced his run for office 8 years ago yesterday. He kicked it off by throwing Rev. Wright under the bus. He was apparently going to give an invocation, but Obama’s handlers realized Wright could be a problem.

  4. Myiq2xu says:

  5. He did more than lie about it. He put on a state-wide tour in a critical primary state to back up his lies. Remember Donnie McClurkin?

    Next questions: What else did he lie about? Don’t expect the media to answer, or even ask that question.

      I think it’s interesting that he’s not hanging around for the 2016 campaign season.

    • swanspirit says:

      I like Sultan Knish’s take :

      Generation Xers mourning Stewart’s departure ought to be thanking the man who made the awkward comedian’s long tenure of pulling faces while making snide remarks possible; President Bush.

      George W. Bush made Jon Stewart. Even Stewart has admitted that his show came into its own when Bush did. A world in which a President Gore spent eight years sonorously lecturing Americans about his love for the trees is also a world in which Jon Stewart would be out there doing pizza commercials.It was Bush’s victory that took a flailing cable show hosted by an irritating little standup comedian with more neurotic tics than a flea-bitten Woody Allen and turned him into the voice of liberalism. Stewart’s nervous smirk and his passive aggressive mockery became the zeitgeist of urban Democrats nervously responding to Bush’s popularity and the rise of American patriotism after September 11.

      The Democratic Party was out of ideas. The politicians who would become some of Bush’s most fevered critics were still following the president’s cues. A newly serious America was confronting a world war.

      Stewart’s disingenuousness, veering from ironic detachment to self-righteous hectoring, undermined real sincerity with fake sincerity. The Daily Show’s audience of hipster yuppies cheered their newfound faith in sincere cynicism while the calculated ironic distance of his comedy kept him safe from critics.
      Even while he attacked the media’s dishonesty, his own routine was the most dishonest of them all.

      His fake news was real news, biased and spun with punch lines. It was fake news that was real and just as fake as the rest of the news. The truth was that the lie was still a lie.

    Zombie has some interesting info on why Kayla Mueller was in thr Middle East (scroll all the way down to comment #819 if the link doesn’t bring youvthere)

      • votermom says:

        I was wondering if there was something like this going on.
        First the way we never heard about her being there until recently.
        Then I heard her letter read on the radio yesterday, and there were s a couple things that pinged my BS detector – first was that she said she was safe and being treated with respect. Second she entreats her family not to be part of negotiations – that’s not their role or something like that.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Fox news just released this, surprised they’re citing a Buzzfeed interview with Obama.

          I respect Catherine Herridge, but this feels like BO b.s. talking points. Not at all close to the Zombie side of the story.

          • Lulu says:

            Yeah. This is CYA stuff. She was in Syria in a very dangerous area voluntarily. With a Syrian boyfriend on a “job”. He got released. She was working for a Palestinian radical group before. Was she a willing hostage for a prisoner swap/blackmail/ransom that never occurred because everyone smelled a rat/setup? ISIS got tired of her and decided to up the ante? More fools they. And unfortunately for her, she got duped. Poor deluded girl.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            Maybe she really was killed in an airstrike, but not because she was there as a hostage.

          • Lulu says:

            Yeah. Saladin II of Jordan bombed her “husband” who lived in an ammo depot. I bet they didn’t see that little kink when all of this was being cooked up a couple of years ago. Cause and effect will kill your ass! What a stupid mess.

          • leslie says:

            I read Herridge’s report and had similar feelings – it was somehow too pat.
            Be that as it may, the beauty of our country is that we get to choose who we support. I don’t believe we should become automatic targets when we fall for propaganda. After all, some of us (well at least I)fell for Edwards and worked for him – even went out of town to work for him. I was duped. I admit it. But it took me a while to see that. Kayla Jean may have been fed, for her lifetime, the propaganda that drove her toward the ISM. It doesn’t mean she deserved to die because of it. It doesn’t sound like she did anything wretched or evil.

          • Lulu says:

            No twenty six year old deserves to die because they are stupid. If that was the case most of us would be dead. I certainly would be. I hope that getting information out will be a lesson on what not to do. There are risks worth taking. This was not one of them unfortunately for her and her family.

    Unfortunately, if you don’t swear allegiance to the progressive points of view, you get pounded as as a moron. In a sad way,we have to just sit back and take it. The more you try to ply them with facts, the angrier they become. I’ve lost quite a few “friends” recently that think Obama is just the the greatest president ever. I have a black friend, a devout Christian, who ranted at me last week because he thought I was one of those hoping Obama would fail and that what he has been able to do as president despite the hand that Bush dealt him is nothing short of miraculous. I responded that I do not hope any person fails in life and that I personally thought miracles was in a different category and open for discussion at another time….and left the conversation. It’s a very sad time.

      That happened to me 2008-2010. I just had to walk away. Now I don’t even miss them although it took a while. It does not make you a bad person just a careful one.

      • piper says:

        Because the media refused to do their job of reporting the death of an ambassador and 3 courageous men during the Benghazi ‘ dust-up.’ Remember the relentless reporting with pictures and videos about the conditions at Walter Reed Hospital when Dubya was prez.

    • piper says:

      Sadly many friendships have been destroyed due to incessant need to protect a man who has never been worthy of an elected office but there are many congress critters who also fall into that category. Having been a teen during the 60s, I remember hearing live the speeches MLK gave about judging people by their character. Today, a certain person is admired, adored and protected because of skin color. Must be the racist in me since I disagree with this narrative.

      • leslie says:

        Yes, Piper. I heard the same speeches. And I lived my life – even then – by that code. Today, because I won’t protect and adore and admire someone because of his skin color, I, too have been ostracized by many. My family simply thinks I’ve become addled.

      He’s certainly at the top of everybody’s list these days, I think it’s too soon, but having to raise a billion dollars to run for President, maybe not. 2016 is a lot different than 1992 when Bill Clinton jumped in late.

      • Lulu says:

        Big Dog’s brains and personality were worth a billion dollars. I like Scott Walker but he isn’t Mr Charm and Personality. But 2016 may be the year of “Boring Is Good” after 8 years of old snake oil preacher man. I’m talking about Bronco not Big Dog.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Yes, it was that Clinton charm that sucked me back to the Dems that year. I see no one like him on their bench now? I liked Hillary as FLOTUS too.

    OMG, turns out Obama is a piece of shit. Who knew? Also, yes, interesting timing about Daily Show. I’m guessing Stewart is jumping ship to keep at the new found directing opportunities. Sad for the progs that they’re loosing their watering hole where they got to pretend they were the smart ones.

    • It really is collapsing every where. So many people are screwed because they hitched their wagons to the Obama myth. I know all these smarties that are so burdened to have to share the air with us common folk. Just a hot mess now. They cannot process an argument. There is no defense. All you get is FOX lies, racist, isomorphic, sexist Magyn Kelly thinks Santa is white. Talk about really lacking self awareness. They all love House of Cards the irony is priceless for everything else there is MasterCard.

      This is comedy gold:

      You Do Realize You’re All Crazy

      As a measure of how insane things have gotten, the NPR panel discussed one of the article’s more telling anecdotes. Actress Martha Plimpton, star of the Fox sitcom “Raising Hope,” fancies herself such a serious feminist, insofar as serious feminist means incorporating a performance of Lennon and Oko’s “Woman is the N–ger of the World” into her one-woman show at the Lincoln Center. Plimpton is also co-founder of an abortion-rights charity, “A Is For,” which had the misfortune of titling a recent fundraiser “A Night of a Thousand Vaginas.”

      For this thoughtcrime, Plimpton immediately came under attack online and boycotts were threatened because the event wasn’t inclusive enough because of “constant genital policing” that offends transsexual men. Plimpton stood firm in the face of criticism. “I’m not going to stop using the word ‘vagina’ for anybody, whether it’s Glenn Beck or Mike Huckabee or somebody on Twitter who feels it creates a dysphoric response,” she said, alluding to Beck and Huckabee’s allegedly well-known yet nonexistent objections to calling a vagina what it is. The mob was not appeased. An “intersectional feminist blogger” asked her why Plimpton was “committed to doubling down on using a term that you’ve been told many times is exclusionary and harmful.”

      Back on NPR, Goldberg decried the reaction to Plimpton as a “recondite form of political correctness … people automatically assumed, not just that she had defended them, but that she was this terrible transphobe, that she was somebody who could no longer be taken seriously as an ally.” As for the rest of the NPR panel, they tried and failed to explain how the feminist ideal could possibly encompass both Susan B. Anthony and Anthony being Susan. Mikki Kendall—a feminist website which also places a special emphasis on intersectionality, “the study of intersections between different disenfranchised groups,” per Wikipedia—laid out the objection to Plimpton’s fundraiser. “With Martha Plimpton, when you say that you are speaking for all of these women in reproductive health and reproductive justice, then you need to be aware that it’s not just women that get pregnant,” she said. “You need to be aware that vaginas don’t get pregnant. Uteruses can contain a baby, but you don’t have to have a vagina in order to be pregnant.”

      Forget for a moment the dumbfounding irony of casting aspersions on a “reproductive justice” fundraiser because it’s “exclusionary and harmful” to deny anyone the womanly joys of terminating the life of an unborn child. Given the Dr. Frankenstein aspects of modern medical technology, Kendall’s biologically mystifying claim, “You don’t have to have a vagina in order to be pregnant,” is true, but a more obvious explanation seems to be that Kendall and a great many of her peers have lost their minds. In fact, Goldberg had previously reported that Kendall was notorious for her unhinged attacks on other feminists. When the organizers of an academic conference to promote funding for the “online feminist movement” ran afoul of Kendall for not promoting feminist efforts for people who don’t have Internet access, she attacked them—yes, on the Internet—by comparing them to “Rebecca Latimer Felton, a viciously racist Southern suffragist who supported lynching because she said it protected white women from rape.” The fact that Goldberg would bother furthering a discussion with Kendall, and that Kendall would be invited to spout nonsense in the dulcet tones of an NPR studio, is a testament to how influential this unsettling new breed of feminists has become.

    • DandyTIger says:

      That was a good/sad/funny read. If vagina is offensive now to the new feminists because of trans-people, isn’t the word feminism itself offensive in the same way?

  20. piper says:

    We should also look the hypocrisy of his consort – She was for it before being against it.
    “In the new issue of Cooking Light magazine, Michelle Obama takes another sanctimonious stand against processed foods.
    Mrs. Obama raked in that easy money thanks to the worldwide conglomerate’s popular product line of powdered non-dairy creamers and sweeteners, hot and cold cereals, evil macaroni and cheese, skillet dinners, powdered gravy and sauce mixes, powdered drink mixes, powdered soup, and puddings.
    She certainly didn’t look down her nose at milk dust, cheese dust, juice dust, oatmeal dust, or broth dust when it came mixed with a healthy paycheck.”

  25. I keep forgetting to relate this– I got a letter from the school informing me that if your child Brown bags it the lunches can and will be inspected. Should it not meet standards you can be fined. Pup is a vegetarian mystery to me how anyone can live without bacon. I thought at first it was a phase but it has been over a year. I have spent a lot of time and money figuring out how to nourish her. Protein is very tough. Complete outside of egg whites is tough without spending bank. Adult or teenage boy stuff doesn’t work so well for an 8 year old girl. I am so insulted that I am being ordered what to feed. They just want me to buy the school lunch or give me a fine. Stuff like that is so offensive. I am not the burger meister so okay with free lunches but now it is breakfast and after school snacks. I am fine with that no kid in my world should ever go hungry or lack medical care but don’t try to control me or my brat. Last year I got a letter saying her BMI was to high and she needed to just move. Join Michelle and make our kids healthy. So pissed off I was. Letter was an attempt to make me pay full price for after school classes that others get for free. Icky takes jazz, hip hop, ballet, tae kwon do and swim. I put the capital H in helicopter parent and I am her great gay uncle. I hate progressives because they are spoiled kids making them selves feel Better by pitying. So gross. I was reported to CYS because I call my little one brat. Really I get investigated for abuse I watch local news and kids get killed but I am criminal. My mother calls me a son of a bitch everyday. I am Irish Catholic me saying brat is I Love you. I can see how some sensitive people take offense. I cherish my pup wake up every day thinking about her future. Some bitch who went to Smith does not get to tell me how I think or feel. Those people make me sick. I think they are all like Caroline Kennedy. Dull. She had immense wealth and access to everything. Her brother was so different he was nice. She ouch. She tried to get Hillary’s seat. New York said no but that spiteful bitch in the Whitehouse made her an ambassador to Japan. I have met her she does not speak Japanese

      At least she passed the bar exam the first time around. Who knows how many times the obamas took to pass the bar. Remember the adage money talks and we all know that she was given this ambassadorship for Uncle Teddy’s endorsement and Grandpa Joe’s nefarious dealings way back then.
      Interesting about your princess’ diet. My nephew didn’t care for meat in any form since he was 2 years old – I lied he would occasionally eat chicken mcnuggets and hot dogs if they were covered with ketchup and he was very hungry. Today he is a healthy 30 years old eating a mostly vegetarian diet and into alternative meds.

I resent Barack, Michelle, Ezra, Oliver, Sullivan, every one on the View. I can fight with my homophobic parents still love them and not depend on you for self worth. I really hate progressives in my experience they just create cripples.
