Ziggy Barack Stardust: Is There Life on Mars? Untethered Prez to Answer Shortly.

The President is a fractured, drifting mess if he thinks Americans aren't tired of federal government spending sprees (with your money).

Barack Obama seems to think that conservatives have a lack of faith in the American people:

“For the past few weeks, a majority of Senators have tried not once, not twice, but three times to extend emergency relief on a temporary basis.  Each time the partisan minority in the Senate has used parliamentary maneuvers to block a vote, denying millions of people who are out of work much needed relief…These leaders in the Senate who are advancing a misguided notion that emergency relief somehow discourages people from looking for a job should talk to these folks.  That attitude I think reflects a lack of faith in the American people…because the Americans I hear from…aren’t looking for a handout. They desperately want to work—they just can’t find a job, ” (Barack Obama).

I find this odd coming from someone who subscribes to a brand of liberalism that:

I somewhat feel bad for the president. He seems lost in space. Politically, he’s a fractured man.  He’s detached from the pulse of the American people in a way that would make David Bowie’s Major Tom do a double-take. If it wasn’t for stimulus bills that didn’t stimulate, health care debacles, a federal government that wants to dabble in the manufacturing of cars, cash for clunkers, and a whole host of other hopeandchange overreaches…this probably wouldn’t register a blip on the average voter’s radar. But at every turn the current administration seems to be looking for ways to spend your money on some newfangled (or should we say old-fangled?) schemes to redistribute wealth.

Perhaps if the President keeps floating away untethered from the opinion of the voting public he’ll be answer the question, “Is There Life on Mars?”

See what happens when you vote for hopeandchange when you’re under pressure, kiddies? The world falls down.

Put in simpler terms, you thought you were getting a David Bowie and Freddie Mercury classic for a president, and you got…Vanilla Ice. Word to ya Motha…

David Bowie will finally get to know if there's Life on Mars when President Ziggy Barack Stardust becomes completely untethered from political reality.

Barack Obama: America’s Orko.

I was watching President Obama try to link efforts to give the American people European-style government-run health care to the efforts of olympic athletes when I remembered how much like Orko from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe he is (I tweeted about it long ago, but this demands over 140 characters).

For those of you who remember Orko, he was the lovable magician whose solutions to everyone’s problems usually caused more trouble than they were worth. Sure, he was a good guy, but when he reached into a magic hat and pulled whatever came out to solve his world’s problems it seldom worked.

Likewise, whether it was the stimulus that didn’t stimulate, the belief that talking with Holocaust-denying mullah nuts would deter them from going nuclear, or the assertion that entitlement expansion is somehow “entitlement reform,” the liberalism espoused by President Barack “Orko” Obama isn’t the answer for the United States of America.

Liberals are like the repairman who says he’s going to fix your leaky kitchen faucet, but when he leaves you find your upstairs bathroom toilet overflowing.  Suddenly, you have water damage to an entire wing of your house, and instead of shutting off the water, ditching the carpet, and fixing the ceiling, your liberal handyman suggests upending one-sixth of the US economy building you a brand new house (using your neighbor’s money).

Unlike liberals, I don’t liken those I disagree with to blood sucking vampires. I think the President’s plans are incredibly scary, but I also believe in his mind he’s doing what’s best for the country (even if sending Ashton Kutcher to deal with people who kill you with radioactive isotopes is a viable option). I could have likened Barack Obama to Skeletor, but I don’t usually like to do stuff like that. Like I said, I think of Barack Obama as an amiable, bumbling fool with public policy ideas that are downright frightening. Like Jimmy Carter.

The same kids who loved Orko as a kid, love Obama as an adult. The same kids who thought Jar Jar Binks was cool will probably vote for the next liberal cult of personality. And ALL of them think Jimmy Carter defines success. Isn’t that right, Mika Brzezinski?
