If it’s true that hysteria reveals itself in out-of-character behavior, Barack Obama must be the most panicked man in the US. For not only has Barack cancelled campaign trips to Colorado and Virginia; he even flew to Florida for a scheduled event in Orlando, only to turn around and fly back to Washington, DC before it took place! That Barack would pass on opportunities designed to secure another 4 years of dictatorial power is more than unusual behavior; it’s downright scary!
But Barack has decided to forego needed campaign appearances just one week before the election, all for the expressed purpose of “monitoring hurricane Sandy.”
“The election will take care of itself next week” said Obama to reporters. “Right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives.”
Funny the president didn’t observe that “priority” when terrorists were murdering Ambassador Stevens and Tyrone Woods.
After Obama had delivered his self-serving comments about hurricane Sandy, Charles Krauthammer said “…you get the photo-ops of him in the Situation Room deploying I guess the utility crews who restore power all over America. You would think he might want to use the Situation Room to convene high level people during the night hours when our people were under attack in Benghazi.”
So playing the role of beneficent leader is Obama’s “hail Mary” to voters. It’s a safe bet he will monopolize the airwaves with presidential updates as he directs the emergency federal distribution of goods and services to countless towns across the affected states. It’s a pathetic show of counterfeit concern for the little people that will fool only those already committed to voting for The One.
It’s also a CLEAR indication of the electoral trouble Obama is in. Everything his owners and handlers have provided the talentless, empty suit over the past 20 years is on the verge of being lost. So the frantic Barack has been advised to play a role for which he is hardly suited—that of a compassionate, sympathetic leader in a time of real trouble.
The White House teleprompter had better be running full-tilt.
