Mister Irrelevant

This article in the Tales was first posted in July of 2011.  I usually hate when people say I told you so, but look at how prescient the Tales was in this article from almost two years ago. What was said in this article [which had nothing to do with the scandals going on today with this administration] applies more accurately today than at that time.  President Obama and his spokesmen are using as a recurring "Seargant Schultz" of Hogan's Heroes alibi theme of  "I know nothing" on all of these scandals.  The commander in chief, according to his spokesmen's own testimony, was out of the loop in all of these scandals: "Fast and Furious", "Benghazi", "IRS", and "AP reporters".   On Sunday Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer said astonishingly "it's an "irrelevant fact" where the president physically was during the Benghazi terror attack on September 11, 2012."  That led to this headline on the Drudge Report.

It is truly amazing that President Obama and his administration are touting the president's incompetence and irrelevance as good things because that proves he could have had nothing to do with the scandals. I don't think it gives Americans much comfort when the president spokesmen imply that President Obama is not corrupt, he's just incompetent.  Whether president Obama is corrupt or incompetent [or maybe both] one thing I think we can say for sure. President Obama has truly become Mister Irrelevant.

Note: In the original post it was commenter Eurobird who correctly pointed out that he wished Obama was truly irrelevant because all of the damage he knew he could do to this country.  It is Eurobird who was prescient in that comment.  Hopefully, this time Obama will truly become so irrelevant that he is stymied from doing any more damage to this country and unable to stop a dismantling of Obamacare.  We can only pray.   
The original "Mister Irrelevant" post unedited [unlike Susan Rice's talking points] from the Tales July 29, 2011 edition:
In the National Football League draft, they have established this tradition of calling the last man chosen in the draft as Mr. Irrelevant.  They make a big deal out of it. They give Mister Irrelevant gifts and fifteen minutes of fame.

I think we have seen develop in politics a man who soon may be known as Mr. Irrelevant.   Yes, the sure winner of the political Mister Irrelevant: President Obama.

In this 'raising the debt ceiling debate' president Obama has been pushed to the side. First by House Speaker Boehner, after the president changed the goal posts as they were trying to come up with a deal. Then by Senate majority leader Reid, after being frustrated with no real input of a plan from president Obama.   The president has given speeches and many press conferences, but no plan to solve the problem.  He has lost even his reliable sycophant press corps, as the cry from them is: "Where's the president's plan?"

Charles Krauthammer, I think reinforces the moniker I have deemed for this president, when he said on Bret Baier's Special Report tonight:  "With the Republicans just passing the Boehner bill, the real loser is president Obama.  He has been marginalized.  He is now left alone in the back offices of the West Wing......tweeting."

So, Mister President, while I deem you Mr. Irrelevant, you will be given the gifts you deserve for being named this honor. You do not, of course, need those 15 minutes of fame as you have been given far too many already.  You will be given a stress free future after we vote you out of office in 2012. Also, you will be given an opportunity to play golf, every weekend.    Oh, wait a second....never mind.

President Obama is Mister Irrelevant!    The real incredible shrinking man.

How appropriate it would be for Obama to be called irrelevant, sadly he is the president of the US, irrelevant as he is. And as long as that is the case,at least until November 2012,he is damaging the US and the world. So, he is hugely relevant, and negatively so. You are right, we won't have a problem forgetting about him after he's voted out of office, until then, however, he is an ever present negative force.

Great comments urobird! I should have probably named it, "in this debt ceiling debate, Obama has become Mister Irrelevant."
He, of course is not irrelevant as far as the damage he can continue to do to this country. Thanks for your important correction!

hmm, 15 minutes "... of Fame" would be time to answer 2 questions.

Big Mike said...

During an Obama press conference you are correct sir. And that may be stretching it to see if he would answer two in that period of time. Thanks DB!

eurobird said...

So well written, so true, Michael.

Big Mike said...

Thanks good man! Blessings to you and your family Eurobird!

Sadly Michael, seems being irrevelant with this administration, they are doing a fine job of ignoring any truth. After all 47% do not pay income tax. So they have a good start with the Uniformed. And it's been yrs that the press has been in bed with this President. As in the Old Testament Days, we've had good Kings and bad Kings.
