If there’s anything Barack Obama loves as much as himself it’s publicity.
Obama wants his name on the lips of all citizens of the world’s nations, his image flashing on every big screen television; his identity mixed with that of Jesus Christ; to channeling whatever American president suits his convenience at the time; his picture ad infinitum.
Like the thrill that comes from spending other people’s money, he just can’t get enough of it.
What better way for Obama to force publicity on himself than to threaten an attack on powder-keg Syria?
The whole world is not just talking about what might happen in Syria this Labor Day weekend or shortly thereafter, but is aquiver about the results that would follow a solo Obama attack.
Is even Bashar Assad taking seriously a hinted solo hit from Obama that first warns him it will be over in just a couple of days; “will come from offshore warships, perhaps a bomber or two, they’ll use cruise missiles. The purpose is for punishment not regime change.”
“Perhaps we should be publishing the exact times the bombs will fall, lest we disrupt dinner in Damascus,” writes Charles Krauthammer. (Washington Post, Aug. 29, 2013).
Even Assad’s 11-year-old son, or someone writing in is name, is not afraid of Big Bad Wolf Obama and taunts him openly on today’s Facebook.
Bullying Barry is becoming a national past time.
In spite of the long launch of horrors Obama is inflicting on his own country, not the least of them being ObamaCare, Amnesty, a racial unrest trying to equal the real one of the ‘60s, many Americans, and folk in other countries, tune out the moment they see Obama’s face or hear his voice.
Down at heart they know there is no Hope and Change coming from the Obama administration. They know that the free cellular phones and food stamps won’t last forever; that the money for road-worthy cars, new kitchens and furniture is running out and that the big well known as America is beginning to run on gulch-dry.
You can only hold an audience captive for so long on late night TV. It’s getting more difficult to find comedy in a country where jobs are disappearing as fast as access to coal and cheap gas.
Even his latest party where he tried to steal the inspiration of Martin Luther King was a big flop.
No one knows how Obama will get out of the corner in which he has painted himself……………..
