World’s Greatest Spin Doctor
Commits Malpractice on Himself

PJ Media, by Ed Driscoll

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/8/2014 4:35:39 AM

“How Obama’s media strategy unraveled with recovered POW,” is explored by John Podhoretz in the New York Post, who asks, “What happens when the world’s greatest spin doctor commits malpractice — on himself?” (Snip)Speaking of spin control unraveling, the man who was compared by his abetters in the MSM overculture in 2008 and 2009 to not just FDR, JFK and Lincoln, but to Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, James Bond, and God Himself, was revealed this past week to actually be a scrawny middle-aged man using tiny beginners’ weights in a Marriott hotel gym in Warsaw.

Little spin man - a great image. Too bad the pubs are so feckless. No matter how impotent O is - he looks like superman compared to the pubs who are afraid of their own shadow.

Go guts, no glory.

If there was one military member, or military family member, still in love with Obama, it has to be over now.

What a terrific piece! This is priceless. No doubt millions of us see the Prez this way:

...the man who was compared by his abetters in the MSM overculture in 2008 and 2009 to not just FDR, JFK and Lincoln, but to Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, James Bond, and God Himself, was revealed this past week to actually be a scrawny middle-aged man using tiny beginners’ weights in a Marriott hotel gym in Warsaw.

Then there is this gem:

In either event, what was even more striking was the use of "my government" which caught my eye. It seems to reinforce the idea that – laws be damned – this is his show and he’ll run it as he sees fit.

The time has finally come when even his supporters see him this way; a rogue President with no concept of his limited role in a three-branch system of government. He really does think he owns it all. And given that no one in his Party has the guts to stop him in his jackbooted tracks, he keeps doing what he is being enabled to do.

And this is really good writing:

...the past several weeks have demonstrated that this is what happens when world events overtake a man wholly unsuited to be president. Or as Podhoretz concludes his article, “You can only spin for so long before you start spinning yourself. Spin and spin and spin and soon you have a whirlwind to reap.”

I think "unsuited" to be president is being kind about it. His presidency is an insult to the Constitution, to all Americans and to those countries who could be allies were someone like Obama not our POTUS.

Arnold Schwarzenegger identified Barry´s type of person of the male persuasion as a "girlie man".

The more Americans see Barry as not really manly, the less likely they are going to approve of what he tries to foist on our country, let alone feeling like he will do his utmost to protect our country.

What remains unsaid is, the philosophy of "good intentions" details the lack of conscience. There is no inner voice saying that good intentions are not enough, positive action and results are a must in order to justify the "feel good" feelings.

How can any human being function without a conscience? Without a conscience any crime is possible. The individuals listed in the article: Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton are prime examples of humans lacking humanity.

Some refer to Goebbels as the first spin doctor. A spin doctor is essentially a propagandist, a deceiver. As obama and the media constantly demonstrate, it doesn´t have to be a lie to be propaganda, though obama himself lies when the truth would be easier to tell.

Excellent, truthful slams against the little man who would be king. Obama has carefully constructed the cool, tough, powerful persona that the media attempts to project. The bottom-feeder class, the groupies and the shoe-shiners fall for every word of it.

I see the idiot who couldn´t figure out how to get through a gate with an open umbrella.

I see the first family photo op at the "slave gate" in Africa that was really a garbage chute to the ocean.

I see the helmeted dork on a bicycle who looks like Urkel and rides like Barbie.

I see the guy on opening day at the ball park who wears mom jeans, throws like a girl and can´t even reach the plate.

We will not comply with the wannabe dictator, ever, because we have nothing but contempt for him. When he attempts to take away the guns and religion to which we cling, he will receive the biggest surprise of his life.

Obama didn´t create "the man, the myth, the legend" -- he´s not smart enough to do it, the media created him. He´s the media´s man in the White House and now they have to deal with the fact that their creation, much like Dr. Frankenstein´s, has turned into an uncontrollable monster.

Propaganda is the key word, the realistic word to replace the soft soap, almost humorous word, "spin".

Propaganda is both lies and censoring of truth by the State. Obama, Jaret, the Clintons with the constant help of the main stream media, are the 24/7 propagators
of self serving lies and censorship.

Search the word propaganda. Come to semantic reality.

With the same reality, it´s time to stop calling totalitarian seeking propagandists the good name of "liberal" and "progressive". These destructive elitists are actually "anti-liberal" and "retrogressive", destroyers of individual freedom!

The real world is catching up with these narcissistic destroyers, and the genius that is America, is whistleblowing this great country back to sanity !

As my late brother Tony would say: "He talks a good fight, now let´s see him put up."

Sadly, that´s all the POTUS can do. Talk. Once people figure out he can´t deliver they call his bluff and prove he´s only holding a pay of red & black fives with a Jack high. Putin, the Taliban, etc. read him like a kid´s book & send him home shoeless ... and then we all pay a price.

I just loooved the clip of Barry ´working out´. Grimacing and straining to push the little dumbbells over his head while doing that step-kneel thing he learned in some coed exercise class. He managed to pull off two before succumbing to exhaustion, by my count.

After Vladimir Putin was shown the video, tears must have been streaming down his face. On the replay, he probably got stomach cramps from laughing so hard.

A few years ago I remember a political commentary about how a speech by a certain politician was the verbal equivalent of break dancing. "Watch as he stands on his head and spins faster and faster! Isn´t he just fabulous?" Someone then asks " But what does it all mean?" The MSM answered "Who cares? Isn´t his performance just impressive?" That is how BO impresses me today. SPIN FASTER BARACK!

Best of the Web posts a 2004 interview with Cathleen Falsani of the Chicago Sun-Times in which Obama defines sin, not along traditional Christian or Muslim lines, but along self-referential lines:

Falsani: Do you believe in sin?

Obama: Yes.

Falsani: What is sin?

Obama: Being out of alignment with my values.

This may come as a shock, but only 55 million years ago, our planet had no polar ice caps; in fact, it nearly became a steamy, runaway greenhouse world, with CO2 levels exceeding 2,500 ppm. Then, all of a sudden, something intervened, causing a shift. Atmospheric carbon dioxide began to drop, steadily generating today´s world, with ice caps at both poles. But why did this happen? And better yet, could whatever triggered this drastic switch be used to temper today´s climate? Good questions. But the answers lay buried deep in the Arctic, hidden to researchers.

A pair of lawmakers from Texas will introduce bipartisan legislation in Congress on Tuesday to speed up the deportations of tens of thousands of Central American children who have entered the country illegally across the southern border. Sen. John Cornyn (R) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D) say their bill aims to amend a 2008 law that currently requires the federal government to provide greater legal protections to young immigrants who attempt to enter the United States from noncontiguous countries. The legislation would rewrite the law to allow Central American minors be treated like those from Mexico and Canada, who can

Facing a torrent of state laws restricting access to safe and legal abortions, supporters of a woman’s right to make her own childbearing decisions have been forced to play a defensive game — trying to block enactment of the laws, and, when that doesn’t work, challenging them in court. An important hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday could begin to move the dynamics of the fight in a positive direction. The subject of the hearing is the Women’s Health Protection Act, a vital measure that would safeguard the reproductive rights of women all across the nation, regardless of where

A restless President Barack Obama has ventured out on an array of field trips, stopping at local hotspots when he travels and ambling around Washington, D.C. He’s dined on burgers, pizza, barbecue, ice cream and a Chipotle burrito bowl on recent outings. And last week, he shot pool and drank beer during a stop in Denver. White House officials say the forays into Americans’ everyday lives help re-energize the president and connect him with average folks. But with Mr. Obama’s legislative proposals stalled and his approval ratings sagging, the excursions also are aimed at reanimating the president’s agenda and providing

The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal just released their 2014 Index of Economic Freedom. One of the surprising results is that the United States is no longer in the top 10 freest economies in the world. In fact, the United States’s economic freedom score has declined every year since 2008. From Heritage: The United States, with an economic freedom score of 75.5, is the 12th freest economy in the 2014 Index. Its score is half a point lower than last year, primarily due to deteriorations in property rights, fiscal freedom, and business freedom. …The U.S. is the only country to have

Does President Obama want to solve the border crisis? It depends on what the meaning of "solve" is. The president says a majority of the tens of thousands of families and unaccompanied children flooding across the southwestern border will be returned to their home countries. But his actions suggest that won´t really happen. Most of Obama´s $3.7 billion border crisis spending request will go to the "care, feeding, and transportation costs of unaccompanied children and family groups," according to a statement to Congress by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. Even some of the costs that appear to be slated for the

The Democrats owe a growing debt to the Republican red-hots pursuing the fantasy of impeaching Barack Obama.

Outrage is easily convertible to cash, as every bagman knows, and the Republicans should get a cut of it. Fair is fair. Sarah Palin, who as a former governor knows better than to confuse hoping with doing, is leading the baying hounds this week. She told an audience the other day that “the many impeachable offenses

The new California gold rush is a bit, well, nutty: According to USDA predictions reported Monday, farmers will harvest a record 2.1 billion pounds of almonds this year. That´s great news for almond-lovers, but not-so-great news for California, which produces 80 percent of the world´s almonds. A single almond requires 1.1 gallons of water to produce, and seeing as the state is currently in the middle of a devastating drought, that´s water farmers have to drill deep for – 2,500 feet deep, in fact. So why keep almond groves around? Because the U.S. and Asia´s demand for the nuts is skyrocketing. Between

The Obama administration long ago cultivated a sense among its defenders that lingering American racism inspires most of its critics, but it was Obama’s supporters in the press who elevated the practice of accusing conservatives of racial animus to farcical virtuosity. It was Obama’s boosters in the liberal blogosphere, many of whom found microphones for their agitation on networks like MSNBC, who invented the art of detecting “dog whistle” racism. For those unfamiliar, this is the ability to decode supposed appeals to racial solidarity that only a professional can ascertain. While these coded claims are rarely perceived by their alleged

In remarks framed as a message to the American public, actor Jon Voight emotionally aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement on Saturday. Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama.

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many

Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday he and President Obama have been targets of “a racial animus” by some of the administration’s political opponents. “There´s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that´s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There´s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there´s a racial animus." Holder said the nation is in “a fundamentally better place than we were 50 years ago.” “We´ve

President Obama is known for being competitive on the basketball court, but he´s also apparently a cutthroat pool player. Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., told reporters at the National Governors Association meeting on Sunday that the president surprised him by beat him in two consecutive games. To add insult to injury, the two were playing at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, a bar that Hickenlooper co-founded.

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”
