    Little Barry

    From a Tim Shipman article in the Telegraph:

    "Barack Obama's offhand approach to Gordon Brown's Washington visit last week came about because the president was facing exhaustion over America's economic crisis and is unable to focus on foreign affairs, the Sunday Telegraph has been told.

    Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.

    Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president's surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.

    A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama's inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to "even fake an interest in foreign policy".

    The Sunday Telegraph understands that one of Mr Obama's most prominent African American backers, whose endorsement he spent two years cultivating, has told friends that he detects a weakness in Mr Obama's character.

    "The one real serious flaw I see in Barack Obama is that he thinks he can manage all this," the well-known figure told a Washington official, who spoke to this newspaper. "He's underestimating the flood of things that will hit his desk." A Democratic strategist, who is friends with several senior White House aides, revealed that the president has regularly appeared worn out and drawn during evening work sessions with senior staff in the West Wing and has been forced to make decisions more quickly than he is comfortable.

    Matters are not helped by the pledge to give up smoking.

    "People say he looks tired more often than they're used to," the strategist said. "He's still calm, but there have been flashes of irritation when he thinks he's being pushed to make a decision sooner than he wants to make it. He looks like he needs a cigarette.""

    And we know what happens when little Barry gets "tired"

    Hey, it's tough work being the Top Dawg. Not like being a community organizer, at all.


    ...and this is with the Press eating out of his hand. George Dubyah ran a full-fledged war for two terms, while being shellacked by a hostile press...and won re-election in spite of it.



    But hey, I'm all in favor of letting the current Commander in Chizzy sneak a smoke - if it would result in better government. In fact, based on what I've seen out of this pretender so far...somebody please send this guy a truckload of Camels. Slip it into an appropriations package, whatever, this guy needs _something_.

    I would have thought being a community organizer would have prepared him for this. Poor old Barry, he should have asked Slick Willie what hard work it was before he took the job. Slick cried the same thing in his first couple of months in office. Remember him looking into the camera and pining that he had never worked so hard than he had the last couple of weeks trying to help the American people.

    Did anyone expect anything else form Obama?The man has no experience as an executive and less as a decison maker. That should be obvious to eveeryone, he is at best inept and worst case we can't dare think about. His choices for those surrounding him in his powered postions are beyond poor. We are in deep trouble with our choice for the Whitehouse along with the current congress. Our best hope isthat in two years congress is one by Republicans.

    When 90% of the unemployed are still laid off 9 months from now, then the shite will hit the fan.

    He needs to stop listening to the IPOD, playing Nintendo watching basketball until wee hours of the morning,,,,this is not a dress rehersal,,,,if this is getting to him, please pray that he doesn't see what Bush did in the early days of his presidency,,,,

    What is he going to feel if the markets continue for the next 6 months in the same direction????

    Now we see why he voted "present" 134 times. Too plain lazy to do the work! No wonder he had to have Bill Ayers write his book and why he didn't take a real job after getting out of law school. He is a lazy, crooked bum.

    On top of the above, he tells everyone else to conserve energy!!!!!! So what does he do,,turns the heat in the oval office up into the eighties. What a sorry excuse of an example of anything decent and honest.

    Barry does not have what it takes to be President of the United States. I predict that he will resign before his first term is completed. Then look at what we get. God help us.

    I could see him in a mental institution long before he resigns. Those around him would not let him resign. He may literally collapse.

    I am sure that he can find some stimulant to "Perk himself up." He has already let everyone know that he is "familiar" with some types of "self-medication". Perhaps, now that he is the nominal head of the DEA, he can get his hands wrapped around a nice big bottle of COKE-a-cola! I am sure that the "crackaffeine" could wake him up!
