Obama Pr0n – 1/15/09

obamaporn Conflucians – it looks like this is going to be a regular feature for me.  Obama Porn is EVERYWHERE!   Shesus Cripes in G-String, I thought the 9/11 Memorabilia Porn was bad.

There’s even a website called The Art of Obama, where talented (yet delusional from the Hopium) artists can submit their Obama inspired works.   If you want to see more unicorns, rainbows, cherubs and of course the PEBO in all his  propagandist glory, please visit their site.  One word of advice:  Don’t have dinner 1 hour before going there.

What I don’t get is, and we Conflucians have been struggling with this:  Why so much adulation for someone who’s accomplishments have YET to be seen?  I can understand the cult status of an Elvis, Tupac Shakur or even Marilyn Monroe, but Obama?  Doesn’t somebody have to DO something before all this worship takes effect?  And why am I suddenly transported back to January 2001, awash with apprehension all over again when Bush 2.0 and Jesus were buddies?

Here’s today’s Obama Porn moment, and yes, this is an actual news item from Agence France-Presse (AFP) :

Obama tells daughters he ran for president for them, all children

WASHINGTON (AFP) – In an open letter to his young daughters, US president-elect Barack Obama said Thursday that he entered the race for the White House “because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation.”

“When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me — about how I’d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world,”Obama said in the letter published in Parade magazine, a weekend newspaper color supplement.

AAARUGH!!!!  I have a daughter.  If I had all the money in the world and wanted to write her a poignant note dedicating a significant moment or achievement to her, would I actually publish in an ad on Parade Magazine?  Hell no.

“I realized that my own life wouldn’t count for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfilment in yours.  In the end, girls, that’s why I ran for President: because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation,” wrote the soon-to-be Dad-in-chief.

ACK!!!!!!!  “In the end, girls,…?”  And Ms. Magazine calls him a Feminist?   Being that the O is already exploiting his children, wasn’t there enough copy space to add their names?   And what about this “Dad-in-Chief”  business?  What type of sentimentalism is that supposed to garner?  Are they trying to make Obama into everyone’s daddy now?  Moving on…

Obama’s wish-list for children includes challenging and inspirational schools; equal opportunity to go to university, regardless of their family’s financial standing; and well-paid jobs with benefits such as health care and a pension plan that will allow them to “retire with dignity.”

Ahhhh, so this was the motive, to push policy points through a cutesy-wootsy, he’s-such-a-good-dad moment.   BTW, I have nothing wrong with Obama’s “wish-list,”  I have a problem with HOW it’s being pushed under the guise of this “Hallmark Card to his children but BTW published in Parade Magazine” moment.

The 47-year-old father of Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, said he wants to “push the boundaries” of discovery to encourage the development of new technology and inventions that improve lives and protect the environment.

Here we go again with the cutesy dad routine.  People are losing their jobs left and right.  Do you think Americans are going to fall for this schmaltzy crap for 4 years?

And he spoke of his vision of a United States that has reached “beyond the divides of race and region, gender and religion that keep us from seeing the best in each other.”

He would strive to send young Americans to war “only for a very good reason”, trying first to settle differences with other nations peacefully.

“These are the things I want for you — to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach, and to grow into compassionate, committed women who will help build that world,” wrote Obama.

“And I want every child to have the same chances to learn and dream and grow and thrive that you girls have. That’s why I’ve taken our family on this great adventure,” wrote Obama, who on Tuesday will move into the White House with his two daughters and wife, Michelle.

And they lived happily ever, while Rome burns or freezes to death.

I don’t know about you, but this repulses me.  Children, and I don’t CARE if it’s the PEBO’s children, should NOT be exploited to push support of government policy this way.   Is this somehow a way to try to melt the hearts of stonehearted voters (i.e., me!) who didn’t support Obama?  What is the point to this level of smarminess?  Because if anything, it’s pissing me off even more.

Bush 2.0 gave life to Sinclair Lewis’ famous phrase: “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross.”

Obama is not only doing that, but he’s throwing in his children as bait.

  1. I have an Obama inspired piece of art. I made it by sitting on a photocopy machine

  2. “Obama tells daughters he ran for president for them, all children”

    From an earlier thread:

    Ba-rack loves the little children
    all the children of the world
    Red and yellow black and white
    they are precious in his sight
    Barack loves the little children of the world!

  3. MYIQ: LOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. MYIQ: Doesn’t it creep you out though???

    Bush had Jesus, now Obama’s schtick is the kids…..WTF???

  5. There’s a whole lot about Obama that creeps me out.

  6. Great post SM, so good to have you back.

    My husband has an all purpose cry when politicians make promises or fake outrage.

    He says, “But what about the children!”

    Think of the children!

  7. This cutesy Daddy exploitation is about as believable and feminist as “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”.

  8. perries:

    Sex: Do it for the children

  9. Thank you Perries!

    But seriously – what ABOUT the children? I know, this shouldn’t be coming from someone who as an avatar of my child as a 3 month old, but I’m not exploiting her photo to push governmental policy.

    There’s a WAY to push policy in a way that doesn’t exploit young children.

    And I know that they’ll be smart asses that’ll talk smack about Chelsea Clinton & Bush Twins. Both Chelsea & Twins are in their mid twenties and they can do what they damn please.

  10. Sandra S. – thank you! It’s friggin creepy and icky. And yes, SEXIST.

  11. A fairy tale told by the great exploiter.

  12. Well, he’ll play up that noble Daddy thing for as much as he can get out of it.

  13. Hey sm, can mommies really resist posting cute baby photos? Not I!

  14. Funny he’s telling his DAUGHTERS that – did he not notice what his people did to Sarah Palin? Women don’t stand a chance. They can still be beheaded in soccer stadiums, stoned to death for having a boyfriend, forced to hide their face forever behind a burkha and sold/married off at age 10.

    The next four years can’t go by fast enough. I am already sick of this guy.

  15. “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me — about how I’d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want.”
    **********

    And he’s different how, now???????

  16. lol JeanLouise, now he is going to make us give him the things he wants?

    Because it’s still all about him. The world even seems to agree! This is such a narcissist’s dream come true. It’s just mindblowing. What other aspiring narcissist has ever achieved so much positive attention (called “narcissistic supply” – they feed off it).

  17. A few weeks ago I was watching CSPAN and they ran Jacueline Kennedy’s original tour of the White House, which I had not seen in its entirety since the broadcast when I was a child. Now I know there are many who no longer have a good opinion of JFK, but I noticed semething I had never heard before. At the end of the program when JFK joined the interview, Charles Collingwood asked the first couple what it was like living in a virtual museum with the public coming in. JFK answered that he thought history should be a living thing and he hoped visiting the White House would inspire some young people to public service in politics, “including the girls”. Yes folks, there it was, nearly fifty years ago now, from JFK himself, a statement that girls as well as boys should be encouraged to go into politics. Perhaps if he had lived, his daughter would have more confidence and be living a different kind of life, not just being shunted aside until needed by the old Irish pol Uncle Ted.

    So no, President Elect Obama, you have done nothing great and unusal for your daughters. JFK was generations ahead of you. Who Knew?

  18. utterly sickening. this is indeed fascistic. for all the utter incompetence of Bush’s administration, he conducted HIMSELF with a level of propriety as relates to the office. The admiration for BO is really worship, and frankly I think he rather enjoys it. Thus his penchant for speech-making, grandiose announcements, and fake symbols

  19. The media creation continues his PORN by adding kiddie Porn using his own brats.

    I am NOT interested in ANYTHING at all about these two brats.

    So there I’ve said it —

  20. Is there nothing or no one backtrack will not use.
    The more I see and hear of him the more I believe this is his theme song.

    what waste of space backtrack is.

    WOMEN WITH INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE,MEN WHO SUPPORT THEM AND COUNTRY BEFORE PARTY ALWAYS

    PUMAS,BUBBAS, AND THOSE PEOPLE RULE

  21. I took my dogs out for their morning constitutional. Damn if I didn’t step in some…..Barack!

  22. Why I am I depressed. PEBO is creating a new world for my granddaughters, right?

    There is so much in this campaign/election/future presidency that is supposed to be novel, hopey,and inspiring, but which ignores history, protocol and plain good taste. Help.

  23. let me try this one

    http:..www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmIoBYzvYCI

    hope this works
    ADAM (a damn aggravating machine} my computer sometimes does things wrong.
    I will never admit to operator trouble

  24. Just let me know when this circus is finally over.

    To think: I haven’t witnessed a presidential inauguration since ’97. (sigh)

  25. http:/www.youtubecom/watch?v=GmIoBYzvYCI

  26. Pass the barf bag, please.

  27. If it does not work this time Screw It

  28. Remember how the media mocked Jimmy Carter for mentioning Amy being worried about nuclear weapons and how the press mocked him mercilessly? Bet that doesn’t happen with Obama.

    Obama made a big deal about the media not exploiting his kids, then he had that photo op and family interview at one of the girl’s birthday party! And he allowed photos of the family on the kids first day of school.

    It’s still all about him. Just read his books if you have any doubt – or listen to how often he uses “me” and “my” when he speaks.

  29. wow just by saying so I can tun my “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” commemarative “ABBA Turd” into a piece of Obama porn….

    I will re-package it as An official “Obama Turd” and list it on E-bay!

    bidding starts at $ 3,700,000.01 if a girls virginity is worth $ 3.7 million in Nevada I should be able to get at least a penny more on E-Bay!

  30. Oh God! I couldn’t even get through the whole post. After I read this: “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me ”
    I was laughing too hard to continue.

    But I’m sure if I had, the thought would have finished;
    “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me …..
    As an adult I KNOW FOR A FACT it’s all about me!”

  31. backtrack has no redeeming value as a person.
    He will use his family and then discard them.
    There is something missing in his makeup that he could love or understand anyone but him self.
    He is one sick puppy.
    Both he and meechell are teaching their children that they never have to do anything and they are owed.

    WOMEN WITH INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE, MEN WHO SUPPORT THEM AND COUNTRY BEFORE PARTY ALWAYS

    PUMAS,BUBBAS, AND THOSE PEOPLE RULE

  32. He is a sociopath, totally void of empathy.

  33. wow its been on E-bay for less thatn 20 seconds and “the blogg that shall not be named is taking up a collection to buy that “piece of histrory (sh*t)” from the undeserving PUMA who owns it!

    if it goes for $ 4.5 million Im retiring to an obama freezone….Cost Rica!

  34. AOL news is talking about a third term for zero….I heard someone in Congress is trying to pass a bill undoing presidential term limits. This means they are going to install this fraud forever and ever. It will never be over….tell that to the kids: Democracy is dead.

  35. PEBO says he wants his children protected from the public eye but then turns around and exploits them like this — and he’s done this several times as pointed out upthread — magazine & tv interviews, pictures of first day of school, etc. (btw, think David Shuster would call this “pimping them out?”) When are people going to stop believing what this man SAYS and start believing what he DOES?!?!?!?!
    No shortage of stupid in this world.

  36. Jeez, I detest this sociopath. I’m wondering how the h3ll I’m gonna get through 4 years of this dirtbag and his sycophants. Expatriation is starting to look damn good and he’s not even in office yet ,,,

  37. SM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, so great to see you back! Makes me feel so much better today.

    Great piece as usual! It just gets worse everyday with the nonstop drumbeat.

    XXOO

  38. Just one more example of the dumbing down of America. This kind of schmaltzy crap is suitable for 10-12 year olds. If you are older than that and still find it “cute” you definitely need to attempt to grow up.

    There isn’t much hope for a country that has become all adolescent drivel all the time.

  39. myiq: I am reading earlier threads. Fill in the blanks:
    B *****d!!!!!

  40. kenoshaMarge — amen– 25 is the new 15 — we’re all doomed.

  41. obama loves to hear those little children sing his name. Next they they will be taught to tattle on their parents.

  42. RalphB – cases and cases of merlot might help!

  43. Watching the news of that plane in the Hudson River is fascinating.

  44. I loathe Obama. Can’t say it often enough.

  45. Betty – scarily you might be right. Already during the primaries, kids were harassed because they or their parents supported McPalin. Lots of schools are planning “inauguration parties,” (we never had one of those), and PEBO desire to have a youth corps is a little too much 1930’s retread for me. I have a feeling before its all over, we’ll all be considered conservatives, just because we enjoy things like, oh freedom of conscience, voting rights, free speech, free press, freedom of religion, right to bear arms (or even bare arms in the summer time),… you know silly things like the Bill of Rights.

  46. Pat, Me too.

  47. Notice how he refers to health care as a benefit to a job. And pensions? How many companies offer pensions these days?

  48. It is 9 degrees here in Western MA. I still feel lousy and this winter is not helping in the least. I am thinking of sticking my head outside for a few minutes to make this sinus headache freeze up.

    Watch it warm up on the 20th. Obama will make the sun shine, the birds sing, the waters to part. It says so in the bible.

  49. Pat, It’s 9 degrees here in Eastern Kansas too. My new rule is that I’m not leaving the house when it’s less than 10 degrees outside. The dog hates this rule.

  50. iris down in the 20s in sunny/cloudy florida

  51. GAgal you bbeat me too it. There is no such thing as a pension anymore. Talk of pensions makes me think this is the authors wish list for Obama Claus.

    Obama’s wish-list for children includes challenging and inspirational schools; equal opportunity to go to university, regardless of their family’s financial standing; and well-paid jobs with benefits such as health care and a pension plan that will allow them to “retire with dignity

    and visions of Sugar Plums danced in their heads.

  52. I hope is is so cold in DC on Jan twenty-that the only thing the Chief Justice of SCOTUS will here is Pampers teeth chattering and the sound of his frozen Balls fall off hit the ground and roll out into the crowd!

  53. I retired last year with a fantastic pension and a pretty good 401K after almost 30 years with the hospital I worked for. Thank God I did then as today it would be much, much lower.

    Timing is everything I guess. Had I waited as my boss kept urging I would be almost 40% less in hand.

  54. Betty and frenly — I have the same worries about children. I have commented here before about the overt bias for Obama by one of the teacher’s aides at my son’s school, and how susceptible the kids are to the propaganda. During the election, one girl told my son that McCain is bad “because he wants to kill people.”

  55. Michael: Think of the stampede to retrieve them for some lucky Obot!!! I would pay to see that.

  56. Well its laundry night and packing night big trip this weekend to Orlando (Yeah) where I will have a good time and watch friends play softball in one of the larges gay softball tourneys in the country!

    Be back soon!

  57. Oh and Pampers will be far from my mind!

  58. PAT!!!!!!

    So sorry I had to walk away from the computer, had to pick up PUMA cub & go get her pound of flesh.

    Glad to know I’m not the only one bothered by whole Obama “don’t mess with my family” bit only to exploit them mercilessly through a damn Hallmark ad in Parade Magazine.

  59. FUZZY!!!!!!!!! Have fun in the softball game!

    It’s going to be COLD on Jan 20.

    Only for Hillary’s inauguration (sniff!) would I withstand 30-something degree weather, but that’s as far as I’ll go.

    (Yes, I’m spoiled by the sun)

  60. Don’t pick on Obama’s brats — but DO slander and bad mouth Sarah Palin’s children and even her darling baby. Was this sexist or racist? Since Palin’s kids are part Native American?

    Double standards and lots of lies — that’s the Obamacrat way.

    Narcissistic personality — one doesn’t need to be a shrink to SEE that Obama has a few screws loose.

  62. the worst part is this letter was probably written by Jon Favreau

  63. This is pathologocical. Only “I” can save the planet. Only “I” can save the world. And I’m doing it for you. Do I hear tidbits of Michael Jackson’s adoration of children? And, let’s publish this personal and cherished letter to my daughters for all the world to see so they’ll know I really care. Really being the operative word. If he really loved and cared and worried for his daughters, he would’ve wanted the most qualified, the most prepared candidate for his and his daughter’s county’s leader. That leader would not be him.

  64. To this British onlooker, all American politicians indulge the most transparently fake sentimentality, piety etc. In cases like Obama’s kids or Palin’s “shucks” it’s hard for us to see what is so bad about it – they are all such a bunch of obvious schmoozers and phoneys. McCain’s “straight talk express” was a case in point – staged naturalism – a kind of Stainslavskian repudiation of the excesses of showbusiness, but it’s still acting at the end of the day.

  65. I am 69 years old. I wonder if I will be able to outlive this time. Please do not burnish Bush’s reputation—he is a disaster for what he has done; Obama is a disaster for all the accolades and drama for doing nothing. It is a sick and sorry start—this first decade of the new millenium.

  66. Do we not all realize that Obama’s accomplishment—the only one to his credit—is that he was born African American and got elected president. That is it in his life so far. That is what all this is about. That is all there is. This country is nuts. That Russian who is predicting our iminent death is right on.

  67. Yeah but Jangles, since he’s 1/2 white, he only deserves half credit for THAT!

  68. Jangles: He was born bi-racial to a white mother. He decided to become African-American once he realized it would sell books and help his political career in Chicago.

  69. Obama is actually a dictator in disguise. IMO it was Obama behind the antics by Harry Reid to declare that Roland Burris, or anyone appointed by Blago, would never be seated in Obama’s vacant seat in the senate. Obama wanted his hand-picked confidante Valerie Jarrett appointed. When Blago gave him a hard time and appointed Burris to the position all he## broke loose. The “One” won’t tolerate insubordination !! His lackey Reid ended up with egg on his face and the whole democratic party cabal look like fools.

    I don’t know what Blago has done and don’t care – if he’s guilty Fitzgerald will punish him. Unless it means dragging the Messiah into the dirt. But I’ve got to confess – I love him and Burris for sticking it to Obama. They said – “Look people, the king has no clothes”

    i am posting a comment so you can get my e-mail address.
    I really can not see backtrack saving the world or the country.
    The only thing that counts to him is saving his own ass.

    WOMEN WITH INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE, MEN WHO SUPPORT THEM AND COUNTRY BEFORE PARTY ALWAYS

    PUMAS,BUBBAS, AND THOSE PEOPLE RULE

  71. HelenK: you got mail!

  72. One manner in which Obama parallels the great Ayn Rand novel ‘Atlas Shrugged’: there appears to be no direct link between events and his emotions. i.e. he must think before he feels.

    There will be many examples to cite. One is his thank you to Hillary for making it easier for his daughters to become president. He uttered that gem at the Unity NH Rally.
