The Undoing of Storybook Man
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/5/2012 5:40:40 AM

It was the Puss in Boots eyes. If you’ve seen the Shrek movies or the spin-off cartoon starring the storybook cat voiced by Antonio Banderas, you know what I’m talking about. Whenever Puss in Boots really needs something from someone, he flashes these enormous kitten eyes that melt anyone in their path. Whenever my daughter really wants something, she tries to lay them on me, and I have to say, “Stop trying to give me the Puss in Boots eyes . . . you can’t have chocolate cake for dinner.” I knew Barack Obama was miserable

Thoughtful article. Perhaps even one we could share with our liberal family/friends, as Jonah shares the Truth so sweetly... perhaps even with Puss in Boots eyes.

Awesome analogical article....AAA.

I'm willing to bet (and based on my own observations) that most dems would argue that beauty is only skin deep.

Underneath the notable lack of attractiveness, they would point out about, say,______ (fill in blank with dem politician), there is a man/woman who cares for the little guy. But somehow they can't get it through their minds that Black, too, is only skin deep. Obama IS the man they saw at the debates. No matter his skin color.

Obama should give hope to cult leaders everywhere. Just find the sheeple. Seriously.

The manchild will not win in the arena of ideas or accomplishments. That leaves how he won his other electorial contests - the Chicago way baby. This is the set up for the axe. As in Axelrod.

This race is going to get more brutal and ugly.

Great analysis by Jonah, as usual.

I've always liked the Obama analogy of the blank canvas. At first blush, people interpret ''blank canvas'' as a place where they can paint what they want on it. And far too many painted on their blank canvas a Messiah, someone to save them from themselves, and whom they would willingly follow.

But when you break down the term ''blank canvas'', what do you have? Blank means nothingness, zero. And Obama certainly has been that.

Canvas means a hard, rough fabric, scratchy to the touch, not soft and comfy. Obama certainly has been that as well.

So there's my analogy of Obama: A prickly nothingness; a hard, scratchy zero.

Blank canvas, indeed. And now, on that blank canvas, I paint a big ''L'' with the words, Buh-bye! And perhaps a red circle with a hammer and sickle inside and a diagonal line through it.

Obama War Room: After Math

[White House exercise facility]

MICHELLE: Axelrod, spot for me while I press 250. Everybody else, gather round.
JOE BIDEN: Hey, what's goin' on? I just saw the Boss in the Rose Garden. He’s wearin’ pjs, chain smokin', and killin’ ants.
DAVID AXELROD: Ants?
BIDEN: Yeah. Watches them, then crushes the ones headin' right. Those meanderin’ aimlessly, he leaves alone. Some kind of simpatico thing.
MICHELLE: He’s stressed out. I’m running things until his therapists clear him for duty. Jay, at your briefing, say the president's decided to hole up in the White House for the duration to do the work of the American people.
BIDEN: How ‘bout tough love, M’am. Just haul his bony rear end back to the Oval Office and tell him to start actively deferrin’ decisions again.
AXELROD: Just got word. Joy Behar, Whoopi, Maddow, and Ed Schultz are going on a nude hunger strike until the polls show the president opening up a 10 point lead.
MICHELLE: Eric, what about Lehrer?
HOLDER: He’s in custody, charged with failure to report an assault.
NANCY PELOSI: I’m outta here. Call me if Waterwalker over there gets his game back. [exits]
CARNEY: Senator Reid, line 1, M’am.
MICHELLE: Put it on speaker. Hi Harry, I. . . . .
REID: The election is lost.
MICHELLE: [hangs up] Loser. Jay, contact the Commission on Presidential Debates. Tell them the president is too busy juggling crises to attend the last two debates, but he’ll be happy to respond to questions submitted in writing.

[enter president, holding Blackberry]

OBAMA: It’s Chris Matthews, dear. Says he forgives me. He wants to know what I’m wearing. Should I tell him?

As for the Puss in Boots eyes, I thought they looked more like Shooting Daggers eyes. Evil.

I fianlly figured out what happened to the bamster at the debates....

I saw the "ole" obama on the tube last night as they replayed his speech from the campaign rally....

He didn't have an audience participating at the debates. He needs constant stroking, i.e. applause and approval, for him to respond to the question with energy....

He's always looking for the attention he didn't get as a child from his care/takers.

At the debate -- he was on his own. No affirmative action "mandate" to force others to like him and his opinions. He was truly the "man without clothes"....

Completely out of his league....

Okay, we are on a crowded elevator - something happens - someone says "whew!" - most everyone glances around -

"wasn't me" says the tall guy in the middle, chin lifted, looking skyward at the floor lights blinking along at the top - "wasn't me . . . it was George Bush".

. . . and George Bush wasn't even on that elevator!

But the weeping in the king's court isn't from his clunky limericks - take note that amid the tears someone manages to squeeze out a few words ... "Mm-mmmmm, who's m-m-mmaking coff-c-coff-ee c-c-cake?"

Will the day ever come when intelligent people will say that Obama is not "black"? Why won't the Repubs simply have a blogger release this truth every day for the next thirty days. At least 25% of his support is due to this bold faced lie.

First of all, Obama has accomplished most of what he wanted. Don't confuse creation of policys that are opposed to our country's success to failure of Obama to succeed. He has succeeded, it is just that his success results in our misery.
Secondly, Obama is the master of straw man creation. His description of Romney and Romney's policies are created and not accurate, so when Romney is there to defend himself with logical and factual rebuttals, Obama's straw men crumble to chaff.

Sure, Obama always was a 100% media creation. No accomplishments, no record, no expertise. The media declared him brilliant and a trailblazer and closed the subject to futher scrutiny, until Wednesday night. But he wasn't the first. Remember Hillary Clinton? One was race-based, one was gender-based. Same result. Crash and burn.

I wanted to comment on obozo's 2007 speech.
This race baiting behavior reminds me of fascists/commies. They don't care if their incitement will lead to unrest, violence, casualties... They have their agenda, which usually is power hunger. And I mentioned many a times, imo, they are clinical sadists. They don't care about ideology, they want rape as many humans as possible! (This is my homegrown theory).
And look at the executioners of this theory: hitler, stalin, pol pot, kim family from n.korea, mugabe, sadat, as-assad from syria....

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Obama, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".

Biden, describing Mr. Potato Head: “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” Stroke away, Joe. And may you reach climax and achieve satiety. Instead, I see pictures of matchstick men.

FTA: "(H)is speechwriters, who always did him the disservice of producing the kind of pedantic and clichéd boilerplate that Obama mistook for soaring oratory" ....

Pedantic? Pedantic?? No. Absolutely not. Not even close. His pedestrian road licking speechwriters (who can write better than he ever could) aren't capable of cobbling together one memorable sentence, and haven't done so in the past four years. Pedantry is a couple of universes away from the place where he exists. (John Entwistle: "Every sentence in my head someone else has said.") The "small c communist" Bill Ayers and the Large C Communist Frank Marshall Davis (CPUSA card #47544) were his only truly competent ghostwriters. (Davis wrote that poem "Pop" that is credited to Obama.)

Eric Voegelin was pedantic; Leo Strauss was pedantic; Willmore Kendall was pedantic; Ernest van den Haag was pedantic; WFB was pedantic; Whittaker Chambers was a poet. Zippy is a bull artist, and not a particularly effective one at that. He won't win a debate against the superior mind of Romney because such ability does not inhere in him. Nor do the facts. He abhors any fact that he can't pull out of his narrow ass at will.

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying.

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal.

Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
