On Tuesday, Barack Obama cleaned the GOP’s clock! His immigration speech was basically right on, inaccuracies excluded. He has seriously hurt the GOP with this one. The Pink Flamingo agrees with most of what he has listed as an agenda for immigration reform. Heck, it is basically the same thing his predecessor, The Great Man, proposed, and was denigrated by the far right.
So, the Far Right comes out of this one looking rather bad. O’Reilly made a fool of himself Tuesday night trying to defend the usual FAIR talking points.
This is another of those follow the bouncing ball…..
Do you not find it ironic that President Screw-up can promote outreach to the Muslim world, but can’t be bothered to view the wildfire devastation in Texas and the record breaking floods along the Mississippi?
What is it with this man?
Bill Clinton felt our pain. George W. Bush had such amazing empathy for people that he radiated concern. Not Mr. Cool. There is no empathy, no caring, not feeling, only the Great I Am. It was pointed out to The Pink Flamingo that the Obamas were quite moved over the tornado disaster in Alabama. If they had not been, it would have been a political disaster. Please, show The Pink Flamingo one recent natural disaster where President Screw-Up even bothered showing up, for five minutes.
Nope, he hasn’t shown up, not Texas wild fires, North Carolina tornado damage, Oklahoma tornado damage, or the flood ravaged Mississippi. He’s absent.
If a Republican POTUS were to be so absent, you would hear nothing but how little they cared. Once again the left is protecting their guy, ignoring their abject hypocrisy, and the right is allowing them to get away with it.
Once again, President Screw-Up has blown it. The problem is the Right is so busy slamming Michelle for some rap poet and will be frothing at the mouth this morning, that they are missing THE BIG STORY.
Once again President Screw-Up has managed to really screw things up to the point where the damage he did to the GOP by usurping the Hispanic vote could be negotiated by what he did not do. Unfortunately, the far right chorus is so busy dealing with their own little agenda, they can’t see the flood waters for the minutemen express.
President Screw-Up has made what may be the greatest screw-up of his tawdry career. Very few people are even discussing it. Think back, to the world before Obama.
Remember this infamous image?
President Screw-Up flew over the Mighty Mississippi on Tuesday, and did not even BOTHER to look at the flooding. He never bothered to fly over it. He never bothered to take a little detour to fly over Memphis. Try doing a Google of Obama, Mississippi Fly-over and you come up with zilch, nada, nothing – a big fat goose-egg.
This is huge.
The press is ignoring the fact that President Screw-Up is so disengaged from the realities of what is truly going on in this country that he can’t even check out the Mississippi floods.
And, it gets even better!
PUNISHING RED STATES?
Is President Screw-up either punishing “red” states, or ignoring them? With the exception of the horrific tornado damage in Alabama, he’s giving the rest of the nation the cold shoulder when it comes to disaster declarations or or visits.
While President Screw-Up may be completely disengaged from reality, the far right talking heads and pundits are even farther disengaged. They aren’t quite grasping what is going on in the rest of America – in Fly-Over country.
“…Administration officials explained that fires are treated differently in disaster declarations than tornadoes or hurricanes because there are no tornado or hurricane assistance management grants like there are for fires. But Washington’s explanation doesn’t satisfy residents in the fire-ravaged Fort Davis area, where an estimated 300,000 acres have burned. “It’s just as devastating as a flood in Missouri or a tornado in Alabama. Why do we not deserve it equally?” asked Fort Davis resident Patty Moreland, 61. “The (federal) aid … will help people rebuild,” said Moreland, who said she knows many locals who have lost homes or ranchland to the fires. “It has affected everyone in town financially.”..”
