Was it good for you too?

Marc Ambinder gets his groove on:

 

The Best Speech Obama’s Given Since…Maybe Ever

Today, at Ft. Hood. I guarantee: they’ll be teaching this one in rhetoric classes. It was that good. My gloss won’t do it justice. Yes, I’m having a Chris Matthews-chill-running-up-my-leg moment, but sometimes, the man, the moment and the words come together and meet the challenge.

Anyone need a cigarette? As Violet Socks said:

See, for me, the man+moment+words=thrill equation kind of falls apart once you know that “the man” in question is about as sincere as a can of aerosol cheese. But that’s just me. The Blogger Boys are obviously on a different wavelength. They don’t want a president; they want a spiritual guru.

If you want a moving eulogy, try this one:

Old Ronnie gave that little speech the same day as the Challenger tragedy – and he didn’t give a “shout-out” to anyone first.  Reagan’s eyes didn’t bounce from left to right like he was watching a tennis match – he looked directly into the camera and gave the impression he was looking right at you.  Reagan was a great speechifyer.

But great speeches don’t make a great leader.  What happened at Fort Hood was a horrible tragedy – it’s not an “opportunity” for Obama to impress his fans.  It’s about the victims, not a politician.

Good thing that Palin b*tch didn’t get elected, huh?

obama-feminist

 


Remember last year when the Forces of Darkness almost put “Rape Kit” Sarah and her scary lady parts in the Oval Office? Luckily, the Obamacrats spread the word that Bible Spice and her Crypt Keeper running mate intended to restrict women’s right to choose, and truth, justice and the American way were saved!

 

Just imagine what would have happened if Caribou Barbie was PILF – we might have gotten a health care reform bill that was a give-away to the insurance companies and cut-off funding for abortions (but not Viagra.)

This is what feminists look like

 


Thankfully, Barack Obama used the same “99 Problems but a b*tch ain’t one” mojo that vanquished the diabolical She-Clinton and put that Palin bimbo where she belongs.

 

As Naomi Wolf said, it was Christmas, New Year’s and Hanukkah rolled into one:
