Not a parody

From the transcript of Obama's press conference today:
In terms of responsibility, as I’ve said before, this is my administration; I always take responsibility for whatever happens, and this is an area that I have a particular concern with. This predates my presidency.
This guy, man.  He turns "The buck stops here" to "The buck stops here?"


This guy, man. said...

1987: Taking unambiguous responsibility like a leader does:

"First, let me say I take full responsibility for my own actions and for those of my administration. As angry as I may be about activities undertaken without my knowledge, I am still accountable for those activities. As disappointed as I may be in some who served me, I'm still the one who must answer to the American people for this behavior."

2005: Why blame one president for what happened on your watch, when you can blame three?

"They [terrorists] looked at our response after the hostage crisis in Iran, the bombings of the Marine barracks in Lebanon, the first World Trade Center attack, the killing of American soldiers in Somalia, the destruction of two U.S. embassies in Africa, and the attack on the USS Cole. They concluded that free societies lacked the courage and character to defend themselves against a determined enemy... After September the 11th, 2001, we've taught the terrorists a very different lesson."

Breaking! American POW freed from captivity in Afghanistan

O'Bubbha &the Democrat Deaftonez said...

Yes, the buck stops here. From there, the White House turns it into foreign currency, washes it through a few Democrat-friendly banks (fuck Switzerland and the Caymans; they're so Cold War and we just use Dubai and Singapore accounts now), and after taking a cut for ourselves, we distribute those funds as "international aid".

1 American (possible deserter) for 5 Taliban..... tell me, which side got the better deal here?

Did we also get any promises from the Taliban to stop executing women in soccer fields or to stop blowing up Buddha statues? (who knows, maybe Afghanistan has run out of Buddha statues). And did the Obama administration ask if they'd get any of the Afghani opium crop? I mean, there is an election coming up, and the masses need their opium.

Good thing the soldier wasn't Jewish, otherwise he'd have his head sawed off like Bick Berg. You may remember him as the one the Taliban didn't want to bargin for.

WTF said...

Coherently put. I couldn't have said it better myself. Mostly because I've had multiple catastrophic head injuries. What's your excuse?

Pelosi "we have to make the deal with the Taliban before we know what we trade for" said...

A bizarre sense of humor, a failed case of wimp training by Democratic-taught by public schools, a few lessons on American civics from a British expat, being a member of both the unorganized militia and unorganized religion, and a sense of disappointment that American liberalism just turned out to be quasi-Communistic instead of the utopianism it promised me.

Zen masters have been known to give their students a smacking if they fall asleep during meditation. If your head trauma wasn't prescribed acu-beating, percussive maintanence, or a case of being hit by a Clue-x4 -in short, not being beneficial to a changing of your worldview, you may need to see a better headshrink, shaman, or witch-doctor. Remember; you get what you pay for, and if someone promises your healthcare won't cost you anything, it might not be worth anything.

So what's your excuse for towing the party line?
Why be so serious? The NSA guys reading your posts need a laugh too.

Don't forget Solyndra, and giving back the Panama Canal said...

This disjointed stew of randomly grafted references and gripes... is it the message board version of Family Guy meets Mad Libs meets No Soap Radio, or a unified field theory of gibberish, or just "conservative satire"?

Disjointed stew said...

To me, it sounds just like Anonylib's conservative doppelganger. Same display of logic, same attention to relevance.

A little like my own earlier lampoon but more complete, somehow. I'm in a state of admiration.

"The rarely seen "He's rubber, you're glue, I'm always correct."

Ah yes, trick n#165-A in the Democratic political playbook, since.....forever!

Funny, since it's also trick #125C9 in the Republican playbook, trick #327-Q in the Mass Media playbook, and perfected in Area 50 by German propagandists brought over in Operation Paperclip, who themselves got it from the Communist Party in 1925.

"The buck stops here? I didn't know we had a buck. My administration wasn't aware of a buck at all. Someone, possibly Hillary, had a Sacagewea dollar, and maybe Geitner had a couple of Kennedy half-dollars, but my administration was aware of no dollar at any time having ceased motion in my office...... It's an allusion to responsibility..... well, that depends on what the meaning of 'responsibility' is."

They can arrest Nikoula for offending Muslims, but they'll never clean my cage!!!!! :D

Like that mysoginistic, racist Hunter S. Thompson wrote "when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

You liberals should stop posting here. Posting here causes you to not work, which means you'll pay less money to the government, which means less money for government handouts. You can't have that, can you? Paying less money means you're a conservative. SO GET BACK TO WORK!!!!!
