Nobody has ever played the “Watch me play President” game like Barack Obama, who has managed to pull off a double play the likes of which has rarely been seen before.
While he was trying, via a surrogate, to attack Ann Romney for “never having worked a day in her life,” on the other side of the world, the North Koreans were busily launching a rocket as part of a goal of building a weapons system capable of delivering a nuclear payload to the United States, and not in a good way.
So we have the third entry in a line of certifiable homicidal psychopaths getting ready to ready to drop a bomb either on his own or with the help of or on behalf of the bloodthirsty mullahs of Iran or the Maoists in Beijing, and Obama is captivated with smearing the wife of his putative opponent for the presidency.
Far-fetched, you say?
Well consider that Hilary Rosen has been a frequent guest at the White House and she threw the bomb at Ann Romney. Michelle Obama then announced that Rosen had gone overboard and Obama himself then promptly backed his campaign bus over Rosen, but the damage was done.
But what was the damage?
Well, the Obamas have now insulated themselves against any inquiries about hard-working Michelle’s “employment” before her husband got his latest gig. Has anyone checked to see if Obamacare has any exemptions for the spouses of politicians who need to be bought off? All legally, of course.
Rest assured that Rosen will suffer nothing as a result of her “misstatement.”
Obama, meanwhile, has dispatched Hillary Clinton to issue a warning that the United States will rush right over to Turtle Bay and demand a strongly worded United Nations resolution warning the Hermit Kingdom that this kind of activity merits a stern letter of reprimand from the flaccid Security Council, possibly issued in triplicate.
It turns out, of course, that the launch was, to paraphrase Darth Vader, “Unimpressive.”
So it turns out that the only thing that could make the Obama presidency look competent was an even less competent Pyongyang combined with a well-scripted Hilary Rosen.
That kind of “hot streak” can’t last forever.
