Tone deaf and out of tune

Here it is, as plain as day. Talk about absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt, no more questioning needed – he does not get it.

It’s not just his handlers and staff; it’s him.

In a politico post, describing a recent meeting he and other congressional leaders had at the White House, Ohio Republican Rep John Boehner said President Obama “looked at me and slapped the table and said, ‘Boehner, it’s not my policies that are polarizing the American people; it’s you Republicans scaring them.’”

Boehner then said he responded: “No, it’s your policies.”

Wow, the amazing power of an out-of-power minority party that has no bargaining chips nor ability to derail the “train of transformational politics”. It’s not the fractious shards of democratic alliances with labor thugs, other special interests, and members of their own party; it’s not the staffing of communists and other liberal fringe throughout the WH; it’s not running up debt faster than Paris Hilton on a shopping bender, all payable by the rest of the country.

No, it’s those tiny clusters of Republicans, shut out of most major media markets and forums by biased commentators, able to somehow conjure up a tidal wave of momentum on all these issues combined.

Wow, if the R’s can do all this while in the political wilderness, can you imagine what they could influence and command if ever able to regain actual power?

    Nine folks in the Justice Department that defend terrorists? Oh, that’s where the otherwise illogical idea of Mirandizing terrorists comes from. A Pedophile Apologist as Public Schools Safe Schools Czar? Boy, there’s another winning idea IF YOU’RE RADICAL. Someone look up the definition of High Crimes and Treason.

    That communist aficionado that flew his plane into the fed building in Texas is likely the only radical Obama didn’t give a cabinet position to. I’m positive Obama has a microchip in his skull – I finally picked up Manchurian Candidate to see if that explains what I’m feeling.

    Keep thinking that way Mr. President. It’s only 8 1/2 more months until Election Day.

    He told that story at CPAC today. As you can imagine, the crowd went nuts.
