You can’t spell “Boob” without “B.O.” The Boob was abroad for close to two weeks to escape the election results. Now the Boob is back, but not stone cold sober as a matter of fact. Indeed a drunk hobo would have done better than the American BoBo.
“WASHINGTON – President Obama is coming home from his overseas trip pretty much empty-handed.
After watching his party take a beating in the midterm elections, Obama wasn’t able to secure even a symbolic victory on a trip that was expected to give him plenty of opportunities to claim a win.
“This certainly was the worst 10 days of his political life,” said Baruch College political scientist Doug Muzzio. “Given that he’s not going to be able to get any domestic achievements with the Republicans in control of the House … if he doesn’t do it in foreign policy that’s a big problem for him.
“He came back with bupkis [Yiddish for 'nothing'].”
Back in April 2009 we wrote “World Leaders And North Korea To Barack Obama: “Sucker“‘ In those days it was evident that Obama was a boob but most of Big Media praised him to high celestial choir heaven. We knew better. This is what we wrote that April:
“The BOob is a pushover – that is the message from Barack Obama’s European vacation. The news from Asia is not much better as North Korea sizes up Obama and sees a dwarf.
World leaders sized up Obama and decided he is a celebrity wannabee. So world leaders gave Obama the soul craving celebrity he wants for himself and then smartly picked the pockets of Uncle Sam while Obama grinned.”
So who was right? Big Pink or Big Media? Last week world leaders treated the boob like the boob he is with a minimum of celebrity glad-handing. Soon even those displays of good will shall disappear and the Boob will be both literally and figuratively slapped in the face. It appears that Big Media has caught up to our analysis from way back.
Barry bombed. This was supposed to wipe away the mid-term memories of Barry on the ropes and all it did was confirm them and further demonstrate that he has no idea what he's doing. And that's really scary considering the job he holds.
Really obvious is Ben Smith's report at Politico. By "really obvious," I mean we've heard about it for about a week now. Daou and Boyce went ahead and filed against Arianna:
