All Hail the Whiner in Chief

Poor Barry - life in the White House has been a thrill except for one little thing - the criticism he received for his "date night" with Michelle on the taxpayers' dime, which also tied up much of New York City at the time:

"People made it into a political issue," Obama told The New York Times Magazine for an article about the Obamas' marriage, appearing in the Nov. 1 issue. The article was posted on the Times' Web site on Wednesday.

"If I weren't president, I would be happy to catch the shuttle with my wife to take her to a Broadway show, as I had promised her during the campaign, and there would be no fuss and no muss and no photographers," he said. "That would please me greatly."

Presidents, however, don't travel by any means other than secure government aircraft or vehicles.

Obama added: "The notion that I just couldn't take my wife out on a date without it being a political issue was not something I was happy with."

Considering the hefty pricetag and huge security nightmare that descended upon NYC's Broadway district, couldn't Barry have just taken the little woman to dinner in Georgetown and a night out at the Kennedy Center? Or would there not have been enough media coverage for sticking close to home?

He's also still kvetching about George Bush having "left" him this mess, for which Charles Krauthammer rightly takes him to task.

Every president is given a plateful of leftovers when he takes office, but I can't remember a president in my lifetime who continued to put the blame on his predecessor instead of taking responsibility for the current situation. He won a year ago! He's been in office nearly 10 months! When will he stop using George W. Bush as a punching bag every time the polls lurch downward? The campaign is long over, and finger pointing just isn't going to cut it anymore.

Time to man up, Barry, and quitcher bitchin'.

Medvedev Looks Underwhelmed

Just look at the picture and you'll see what I mean. With all of the hype about Obama's supposed ability to heal the world, why aren't the Russians on board the Hope and Change Train?

Meanwhile, Obama is busily signing away what nuclear power we have left, figuring where The Won goes, so will everyone else. Yeah, like the Russians have ever been cooperative. I wish I could say I can't wait until I can say, "I told you so," but that day may come at a terrible price for all of us.

Obama: I'm sure you're pleased to meet me.

Medvedev (to himself): When's lunch being served?

Obama's European Honeymoon: Over Already? That Was Quick

What, did he think that his personal charisma could shield him from criticism that American presidents have been subjected to by their European "betters" since, like, always? Peter Brookes of the Times of London is sounding the call:


Of course, the blame for civilian deaths in Afghanistan should be placed on the Taliban because like al Qaeda, their un-uniformed fighters hide within civilian populations deliberately. The more innocent people dead, the more they like it - plus there's always the hope that the civilians will turn their backs on the Americans and those Europeans still in Afghanistan.

I would be more willing to defend Obama from the criticism, but a couple of things bother me:

First, the man just can't stop apologizing. Civilian casualties suck, but in war - and especially the despicable type being waged by Islamists - they are bound to happen. So man up and accept the responsibility. Running around saying "I'm sorry" about everything is hardly going to inspire respect around the world.

Second, Obama didn't mind smearing our troops - and therefore smearing the Commander in Chief - while on the campaign trail back in 2007:

“Now you have narco drug lords who are helping to finance the Taliban, so we’ve got to get the job done there, and that requires us to have enough troops that we are not just air raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there,’’ Obama said.

Leftists screamed that we needed to be more involved in Afghanistan, not Iraq. Their wish has been granted, but as the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for. Obama is ramping things up in Afghanistan. Did he really expect that his ascension would magically turn things around?

Bush was reviled by many of our "friends" in Europe from 2003 until he left office. I'd love to ask Obama how he's enjoying the mantle of leadership now.

OH...and speaking of that famous charisma:

BARBARA Walters once had a very awkward moment with Barack Obama before he won the White House. "I went to a seminar where [he] was being interviewed," the veteran ABC newsgal tells this month's Avenue. "I went up to him afterwards and said, 'Senator, I hope one day you'll come on 'The View.' He looked at me and said, 'I was.' And I said, 'Oh, I'm so embarrassed. I guess I wasn't on that day.' And he said, 'You were.' "

Change You Can Cash In On

Pepsi's new "Hope" campaign is modeled after the Obama campaign. Dunkin' Donuts is offering "Stars and Stripes" doughnuts all next week. Krispy Kreme is celebrating with Freedom of Choice doughnuts.

And these are just a few of the stomach-turning forms of adulation to which we are being treated. I wrote more about this topic for PJM earlier this week.

Is it change you can believe in? Or change you can cash in on? Perhaps a little of both.

The whole current spectacle is disgusting. We are inaugurating a president, not anointing a savior on high! I have really had it with the fawning coverage and slobbering that passes for news. My mother told me that some years ago, when Bush 41 was inaugurated, the school she worked at wouldn't allow her to show her students the ceremony because it was "bringing politics" into the classroom. Of course, the school she is at now is showing The One's ascension in two locations in the school so that there is room for all!

My, how times have changed. Someone get me a barf bag.
