The Whiney Loser in Chief

President Barack Obama said yesterday in Decorah, Iowa, that he absorbs more political criticism than Abraham Lincoln, the assassinated 16th U.S. president, attracted from his Civil War critics.

“Democracy is always a messy business in a big country like this,” Obama responded. “When you listen to what the federalists said about the anti-federalists … those guys were tough. Lincoln, they used to talk about him almost as bad as they talk about me.”

Eric Dezenhall, a former communications aide to President Ronald Reagan, went ever further in an interview with The Daily Caller: Obama’s complaint, he said, “is more grandiose than narcissistic … It’s equating any form of push-back with some sort of giant historical crime.”

Lincoln faced a civil war in which “half the country would rather leave than accept that he was a constitutional president,” Felzenberg told TheDC. But “no one challenged Obama’s election, no one tried to shut down the inauguration … to put himself at [Lincoln’s] level seems very vain and self-absorbed.”

Even though he was repeatedly snubbed and insulted by both Democrats and Republicans, “Lincoln had this amazing capacity for open-mindedness,” Foner explained. “He wanted criticism. He invited critics into the White House … I don’t think Obama does.”

“Lincoln was the original ‘moron Republican,’” and was frequently described as an an ugly, ignorant hick, said Denzenhall. In 1980, Reagan faced the same social scorn, Dezenhall added. “You could just feel it, whether it was comments about his ‘idiocy,’ his ‘laziness,’ about Nancy [Reagan] being Marie Antoinette, or his horrible brown suits.”

"At least 618,000 Americans died in the Civil War, and some experts say the toll reached 700,000. The number that is most often quoted is 620,000. At any rate, these casualties exceed the nation's loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam."

So, can anyone guess why many people are coming to the conclusion that Obama is not only arrogant but also ignorant? Obama is unable to handle a recession while Lincoln led the country through a civil war. What an ignoramus!

He is definitely ignorant of history.

The political cartoons mocking Lincoln would be considered very un-PC today would and have not been published today. Half of the country refereed to him as a king or dictator. Not to mention the multiple attempts on Lincoln's life.

The Democrats did not like Lincoln, obviously, but so did many Republicans, event to the point of a primarly challenge. Same for at least half of the media. Obama cannot claim anywhere near that.

Yesterday Bart coined the memorable name Barry O'Dumbfuck. It's tough to find a lower level of discourse nor a higher level of contempt anywhere in history.

You could get into mother-rapers or something like that, but I bet they didn't even call Lincoln that.

"The political cartoons mocking Lincoln would be considered very un-PC today would and have not been published today."

I don't believe that. Anything they published back then could be reprinted here, now.

I'm going try to look up some examples.

I think you'll find many examples of worse contempt, than Bart insinuating that PBO is Irish. Special dolls were made of Lincoln in blackface, as well as numerous cartoons. His detractors openly talked of revolt and hanging Lincoln.

I also think Andrew Jackson would disagree.

JW, I'm still looking around, but nothing worse so far.

Didn't Gov Perry in Texas say he might try to pull Texas out of the Union if the Fed prints any more money?

They put Lincoln in blackface. They put Obamna in whiteface, monkeyface, hitlerface, all kinds of faces.

To be fair, they (we) did it with Bush too. Free press, man. But I do think it's more free today than it was in the mid-nineteenth century.

If some of these cartoons were published today about PBO, the media would have a conniption.

Altogether, political discourse in the 1800s was a lot dirtier than we are taught.

dumb?

I don't think the guy is dumb. It's obvious that he's vain and craves attention and even worship. His defensiveness shows that he has a lot of insecurities, and the defensiveness makes him look obstinate, too.

I think the guy is ideologically blinded. He is a committed European socialist, reflexively anti-free market and pro-big government, and just won't see the world any other way. He has trouble liking America and what we do here, and he avoids patriotic sentiments. Part of that is his academic background, and part is his long association with assholes like Ayres and Wright. There's my 2 cents.

I've seen some pretty ugly anti-Lincoln cartoons. Gorillas and whatnot. Off limits with an AA pres today (AA= African American or Affirmative Action, take your pick).

I couldn't find any contemporary cartoons that showed Lincoln or Obama getting hung.

Sorry, link pasting issues with my Firefox. Try searching "Lincoln political cartoons" in Google images.

I'm surprised you and Elmer don't remember seeing them in their first run.

written by Ed Salden , August 17, 2011

JW, I've been doing that. I didn't see anything that bad, but many of the cartoons had text that was too small for me to read, so it was hard to judge.

The first time they were published? No, I was too busy then, dating your mama.



Elmer

I knew gorillas and I knew Lincoln. He was no gorilla. And Obama is no Lincoln. No momma comments, Ed. Mind your manners.

MANY people are coming to conclusions about you too Bart but that's bound to happen when you post stupidity on the World Wide Web. Your reference to the President Barack Obama as "Barry Hussein O'Dipshit" comes to mind. Even my mama thinks that is immature and foolish.

You have yet to show a shred of proof that Barry isn't a moron. You have no college transcripts, no great articles, no success in the private sector, nothing. The left has projected what they wanted to see on Barry but they have nothing to back up their beliefs.

And if I am so stupid, why do you spend your time here? I'm smart enough to suck up your time on my blog. Posters have never been able to answer why they return day after day to read the postings of a "stupid" person.

So I guess I'm smarter than you at least. ;-)

Right Woodrow. Keep learning from school bus-driver Ed- besides his regular contribution of in-depth insights that get the immediate factual slap-down predictably followed by his feeble passive-agressive whimpering, you also get varied brands of his original dry wit, in this thread he's showing us who invented "Yo Mama" jokes.

Watching Ed get his knickers all wadded up over Bart being mean to Obama is kinda funny after the way ed always viewed Bush.
Now You may not have called Bush names (I don't recall) Ed-man, but the scorn was enough to peel paint.
Dumb-shit, moron, jackass, Barry-o-anything Left wing extremist, right wing extremist, socialist, etc. is all fair game.
Hitler and Mao (or Stalin or Pol Pot, just so many commies to choose from and only one Hitler for the right) are below the belt.
And calling for or wishing death and you've just gone too far.

Please smooth out your skirts Nancy and get over people taking shots at the donkey in the Whitehouse.

Sequel, I know my comment to Bart was more than five words, so it was probably too much for you to read, but I said he has every right to call Obama whatever he wants.

I just thought Bart sounded stoopid.

And I wear jockey shorts.

Never liked him.

Never thought he was smart.

Never sure he was well-intentioned.

As for Obama...
I generally call him Barry, just like everybody around him did until college when he started to think his shit didn't stink.

Never liked him.

Never thought he was smart.

Never sure he was well-intentioned.


Pretty much sums up my opinion.
Never thought much of his oration either. Always thought his rhetoric was a bunch of empty platitudes. Hope and change my ass.

Near 20% real unemployment. Around 50% black unemployment... That what we were hoping for?
15 trillion dollars in debt, and GDP growth flat and ready to go negative... Change!

I must admit I found Obama's rhetoric more pleasing before he got a track record.

"Barry O'Dumbfuck" is just not funny, if you ask me, but of course, nobody here was asking me, so I decided to volunteer the information.

"Dont discount the value of the dozens"

I don't, they are rhetorically invaluable. I was responding to Ed's jibe at my unoriginal Seinfeld-based, dozens-related humor that brought into question Ed's Nancy-style whimpering and sexual orientation (in a purely, Brent-related ball-busting manner).

"Barry O'Dumbfuck" is just not funny, if you ask me...

Ed, there are different kinds of funny, a given "joke" can have elements of pathos, hyperbole, satire, irony and repartee. IMO, Bart nailed it with this moniker.

Think about it. Barry has been searching for his "identity" his whole life. Abandoned by his father, semi-abandoned by his mother. Though Irish-Kenyan ethinically, raised and educated in Indonesia as a Muslim with an Indonesian stepfather. Spent a lifetime disavowing his maternal roots, including throwing his own Grandmother under the bus. Multiple name-changes. Claims hyper-intelligence, but refuses to release any proof to that effect. Everything he touches turns to pure fetid doo-doo- once the teleprompter is turned off. And, oh-the-irony, of his given name "Obama", congealed with his Irish heritage "O'Dumbfuck".

If you are not minimally amused and filled with at the very least a small rush of pathos by the inherent irony in Bart's given nom de plume for The One, you aren't trying hard enough.



Barthélemy Barbancourt
At least someone gets it
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , August 18, 2011

Let me map it out for you.

The identity seeking, 50 year old President recently implied that the name Obama made him Irish. Now we know that Barry has daddy issues, but given his levels of melatonin, I'm pretty sure daddy wasn't really a Mick named Paddy Seamus O'Bama.

Now, Micks are near the bottom of the human food chain on the Anti-Strib; they are below WOPs, Hebs, Fish eaters and even wetbacks, they are slightly better than Towel-heads and Redskins as they unfortunately can write and operate a computer. God only knows how?

Now mash-up Barry "I wish my daddy ate potatoes" with the old habit of adding O to any Mick insult and you get Barry O'Dumbfuck. These will be followed with Barry O'Douche and Barry O'Fucktard as I see fit. And yes, Barry isn't Hitler, nor is he Pol Pot, Mao or even Che (Murders all). Barry is more Jimmy Carter, James Buchanan and the bad singing dude from American Idol. He isn't evil, he's just a turtle on a fence post.

I don't know how to respond to that, certainly not at this hour.

This is one problem with making politics an occupation and not a part-time service. Candidates become shape-shifters in order to keep a job or become elected to the next highest office.

Should I be concerned that a candidate's personality in college is a bell-weather? It might be. Example: Rep. Ellison, PBO, etc.
