Oh man. This is too much. Daniel Halper:
President Barack Obama, at an exclusive fundraiser last night in San Francisco for Senator Barbara Boxer:Not to mention the clear sailing for President Bush in the autumn of 2001. Has Obama forgotten 9/11 and its aftermath?
Let's face it this has been the toughest year and a half since any year and a half since the 1930s.
This is the most revealing comment Obama has made publicly in a long while. It shows his self-absorption and utter lack of a sense of history.
Sure, FDR had a tough ‘30s with the economy and all, but by the time the ‘40s hit, it was smooth sailing. (What’s worse: the Nazis and the threat of world-dominating totalitarianism or the obstructionist Republicans?) And President Harry Truman really had an easy time ending World War II, and having to nuke the Japanese. President Dwight Eisenhower only had the Korean War to worry about – and who remembers that, anyway? JFK and LBJ had Vietnam – not to mention the worry that the Russians might nuke America from Cuba, or any other place in the world, etc., etc., etc. [RTR]
He was never qualified for the presidency, temperamentally or otherwise, and he's not rising to the occasion. And aside from the perks, he doesn't seem to enjoy the job. It's too hard or something.
If you suffer from hypotension, read some more of his remarks here. Sample:
“I had wrapped like a gift, a welcoming gift for me, a $1.3 trillion deficit,” he said. “So we had to act quickly.”Because . . . $1.3 trillion wasn't nearly high enough?
Many thanks to Michelle Malkin for the Buzzworthy link.
