The Cherry-Picking Liar

Before I launch into today’s rant about that sorry excuse for a Chief Executive, I want to send a big shout-out to Donald Douglas at the AmericanPower for linking me in his Rule 5 rescue for the babes list. WinkWinkNodNodKnowWhatIMean?


Thursday is usually food fun day here at the Jedi Academy. I could find a recipe for a nice cherry cobbler, or opine about my cherry tomatoes out back, but really the best way to eat cherries is just as good, old, plain fruit. And don’t forget the old legend about George Washington chopping down the cherry tree. Remember, he said, “I cannot tell a lie.”

Too bad the current occupant of the Oval Office doesn’t subscribe to the same level of personal integrity. As the Anchoress notes in her post about Obama slowly revealing himself to the country,

He told us something about himself when he put the murder of an abortionist over the murder of one of his soldiers. The death of the abortionist was immediately condemned with a security deployment ordered. It took days upon days for the death of his soldier, at the hands of a convert-to-Islam intent on mayhem, to be acknowledged with the release of a woefully inadequate and rather cold expression of “sadness” at the murder of a soldier who had volunteered to serve under him. Barack Obama revealed himself in those stories.

And now, he is in Cairo, saying Ich Bin Ein Muslimer!

[…] But if Obama is a Muslim, he should have told us, don’t you think? I mean, I know the nation elected a person they really did not know in 2008 (the press would not ask him a question or tell us anything about him, after all, besides “he’s so great and so cool and so elegant.”)

An election is a contract of sorts, and before he entered into one with us, he should have told us who he is, that’s for certain. But then again, Obama doesn’t think much about contracts, so it might have been pointless, anyway.

She also thinks he might be sprouting a bit of a mustache. Hmmmm, shady dealings, marxist leanings, affected facial hair, what’s next? A lodge up at Berghof? Legions of goose-stepping morons? Oh wait, he’s already got those in his media lapdogs.

Fausta wonders at what was left out of the speech. I’ll tell ya – any type of firm commitment to anything not related to HIM. That’s a given, especially when he’s jockeying for his own lapdog position, complete with bling (not Bing).

Smitty takes a nice turn at one of the missing items. Almost a palindrome, it is.

But back to the cherries. I’m not going to pick apart this particular speech and point out his many inconsistencies and mistruths – people smarter than me are doing a fine job of that. And this speech is just like the rest. Empty words from an emply suit. As another mesmerizing speech maker once said, “The leader of genius must have the ability to make different opponents appear as if they belong to one category.” (*Can you tell me who said it?)

Talk about cherry-picking your talking points. How about cherry-picking your Presidential quotations? This comment at HotAir notes the irony of quoting the father Adams, but not the son Adams, on early American relations with Muslims (you really must read it!). Perhaps he missed this other John Adams quote:

“Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God’s service, when it is violating all His laws.”

The Middle East is laughing at America behind Obama’s back. He thinks he’s part of the new “in” crowd; but he’s really the butt of their jokes. I can’t wait until tomorrow when he’s in Germany. Better pop some popcorn.

Update: No one got the quote. The source is here.
