The Righteous Rant Of The Day…
…comes courtesy of that ebullient emissary of eurythmic explication [whew!] Roxeanne de Luca who exuberantly eviscerates the Nancy-Boy-In-Chief for this statement he made when interviewed by Matt Lauer on the Today Show:
During the interview Obama talked extensively about the Gulf oil spill and the actions his administration has taken. In noting that the President had not spoken with BP CEO Tony Hayward, Matt Lauer said: “I’m curious why you didn’t pick up the phone and give him a piece of my mind.”
Obama said: “I would love to vent. I would love to just shout and holler because I’m thinking of this day and night….I want to solve the problem.” ” He went on to say he had not spoken with Hayward: “Here’s the reason. Because my experience is, when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he’s gonna say all the right things to me. I’m not interested in words. I’m interested in action.”
What is even more revolting is this business of acting like a pansywaist girl on the playground, rather than someone who is remotely competent to fix the largest environmental disaster in history. Adults, when faced with problems, will suck it up and deal with people that they do not personally like. Obama, when encountering something that did not go his way – which any rational human would expect to happen whilst running the free world – bitches about how he would fire Tony Hayward if he could, but lacks any plans to replace him with someone more competent; he complains that the press is being unfair, since he visited the Gulf before it got media attention, but does not stop vacationing and seeing Paul McCartney.
Right on, sister, right on.
This is the same interview where our Fearless Leader also said:
I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.
Now…I’ve seen a video of this part of the interview [I couldn't watch the whole thing — doctor's orders] and I also spent a lot of time working with audio in recording studios as a producer of my last band’s albums. In other words, I know how to interpret sound and how sometimes what you think you hear is not what is being said. Audio can be shaped and molded. I’m telling you all of this because I have studied that bit of audio, that sentence, and here’s what the Poofdah-In-Chief really said:
I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kiss.
Now, it makes sense…am I right or am I right?
