Childish Behavior Is Job One [Updated Below]

01 September 2011 @ 11:00

So…our Job-Creator-In-Chief, taking some time off from reading Brave New World*, wanted to make the greatest, most fantastic, most thoughtful, most comprehensive speech evah! on his plan to create jobs before a joint session of the Congress and, by pure, unadulterated coincidence, he wanted to make it at the exact same time that Republican candidates for the President Nomination were going to hold a debate.

Our wise guy in The White House sent a letter to the Speaker Of The House requesting the time and date and released the story, all without consulting with the Speaker, as is the custom [Obama: ‘We don’t need no stinkin’ customs!’]. The Speaker, obviously having borrowed Allen West’s family jewels, suggested ever so politely that the ‘President’ move it to the next night.

The White House caved.

For the full story on these events, please click here and read Stacy McCain’s report. In his comment on all of this michegas, Stacy’s right on the money [gold, not fiat]:

It’s as if the administration, unwilling to fight for anything important — or too politically weak to win any important fight — with the Republicans, decided to fight for something trivial. And the fact that they lost even this juvenile pissing match will only further erode the presidential image.

Which means it’s time for the liberal media to produce another story about how dumb Republicans are.

[Well…if you’re honest, you have to admit they are quite dumb when they treat the Arse-Clown-In-Chief like he’s worthy of being taken seriously and treated like an adult.]

While I was happy to see that Cryin’ John didn’t ‘compromise’ [there’s a first time for everything, you know, but, typically for The Stupid Party Establishment, they displayed testicular fortitude over a rather trivial matter], I think Charles The Kraut Hammer’s idea, as expressed on Special Report last night was a better one [transcript not yet available]: the candidates should have asked the debate organizers to move the event to 9:00 PM and they should have been allowed to respond to the greatest jobs speech of all time. As it stands now, the debate will just be another low-rating affair, the only bright side being that not many football fans will be watching the most tremendous and wonderful jobs speech ever delivered.

In a related matter: Paco [the man who should be President] anticipates that the most incredible jobs speech ever given in the whole of Human History will be ‘quite awful’. Contemplating this turkey, he is reminded of H.L. Mencken’s comments on Woodrow Wilson’s and Warren Harding’s speaking styles. The Wilson quote is priceless, but the Harding one is quite good, as well:

…he writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish, and crawls insanely up to the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.

It is the horse and the feathers, the hog and the wash, the moon and the shine, the God and the damned, the frank and the beans ― maybe I should quit while I’m behind.

SIDENOTE: As to the charge made by some that the most awesome speech ever delivered is nothing but a campaign speech, over at White House Dossier, Keith Koffler puts our minds at ease:

Gosh, he could have waited a day.

President Obama is already using next week’s address to Congress on the economy to further his political campaign, sending supporters an email message designed to pump up campaign participation and build the Obama 2012 email list.

The message was sent just hours after the White House announced the address. Bearing the subject line “This is important,” it is directly from President Obama and was sent to people on the campaign email list.

The move demonstrates unambiguously that the White House and the Obama campaign intend to use the speech and the drive for new “jobs” legislation as a political tool to hammer Republicans.

The text of the e-mail and more details and analysis can be found here.

You know, Mark Steyn has being saying that American has become a fundamentally unserious nation and I think he’s dead solid perfect. And we will never have a chance of reversing that until we purge Obama and the people like Harry ‘The School Marm’ Reid and Charlie ‘Sleazy Slimy’ Schumer from their offices.

UPDATE at 1707…

It’s amazing the things you learn on the Interwebs.  Like, for instance, who knew Steve Burri [the Good Burri, not the Evil Burri], has a crystal ball!  And with a digital camera attached to it, no less?  Well, he do and he’s already beaten all of us to the punch and posted an after-report on Ensign Pulver’s speech to the joint session of the Congress next week [the punch needs more rum, by the way, Steverino].

* So he can steal some more ideas, I suppose.
God help us. Perish the thought that he ever
comes up with original ones.

    I hope the televised NFL opener gets pre-empted by his speech. You do not piss off NFL fans. It would make the ‘Heidi Game’ seem like a small deal.

        I hear it’s either the above or the UN for the First Douche Couple after they leave The Whitey House.
