Obama’s ‘achievements’

Lars Larson, conservative radio talk show host, interviewed NYT columnist Roger Cohen, who mocked Sarah Palin for not having had a passport until last year, not enough credentials for being “a heartbeat away from the presidency,” and “overuse” of the word exceptional.

Larson asked Cohen what Obama has done that could be considered significant and Cohen, after an uncertain pause, had to know he was hard pressed. Eventually he stammered, “He’s a guy who was born into pretty simple circumstances in Hawaii…and in 47 years he’s achieved a fair amount.”

Larson pushed Cohen on this: “What has he achieved? Name a significant achievement of Barack Hussein Obama”

“A significant achievement?”

“Just one.”

“Well, I think he’s put himself in very close range of, uh, of the White House.”

“So his achievement has been–“

“He’s spoken out on issues…”

Dear readers, I cannot go on. It pains me that someone who is supposed to have some intellectual base can only come up with these “qualifications” for handing someone the keys to the White House. Oh there was something about two bills he has passed, bills that, as Larson says, “don’t require a lot of heavy lifting” because everyone agrees on it.

But there you have it, the same thing time after time after time after time after time…ad nauseum. Someone is asked what Obama has ever done that is worthy and if they can come up with anything at all, it is something as lame and insignificant as, “He spoke out.” If they can stop stammering and acting like they are trying to convince their mother they were at the library and not smoking under the railway bridge.

  1. Yes he put himself in very close range of the white house. But to see Obama’s acheivements. Just check out GunBaNObama.com.

    Other than that I have been keeping my eyes and ears on Fox network on this “bailout” deal going down. I don’t like the fact that Repubs. are trying to make Admins in these firms beneficiaries with our tax money and I’m not happy that Dems. are trying to get A.C.O.R.N. be beneficiaries with our tax money.

    There is no doubt in my mind how ever the Dem’s or the Repub’s put the spin to the American public… We can kiss that $700 Billion good bye.
    Both parties hope to protect their interests with that money and once again the Government’s ears fall short in hearing the American public on this issue.
