So now President Obama say he’s “really good at killing people.”
Cheap Seats assumed that Obama was being uncharacteristically honest about his unaffordable care act, but it’s actually worse.
Obama, it turns out, was talking not about the Independent Physicians Advisory Board, but his adroit and fearless use of the drone.
No, again, we’re not talking about Vice President Joe Biden, though Cheap Seats concedes admit the confusion is understandable. Biden, after all, has set a standard for ineptitude that is close to lethal.
No, Obama was talking his skill, and Cheap Seats uses that word advisedly, in ordering someone to tall someone else to push a button on a console directing an unmanned aerial vehicle to fire off a Hellfire missile at someone half a world away from Obama’s comfy Oval Office chair.
By that logic, Obama could actually be a good basketball shooter simply by manipulating his game console.
The fact is, as we all know, Obama can’t shoot a real basketball. Back in April he went 0 for 18 trying to show off for a bunch of kids, who were appropriately unimpressed.
“He couldn’t make one. I had to help him out,” 10-year-old Kahron Campbell later told pool reporters after hitting a shot that Obama could not.
Talk about a killer on the hardwood. Kahron Campbell, maybe. Obama, not so much.
Obama, of course, has made much of his so-called killing of Osama bin Laden. Yet Obama couldn’t stand to be in the safety of the situation room. Instead, he reportedly played cards with “body man” Reggie Love.
What is it with Dem presidents anyway?
Lyndon Baines Johnson screwed up the Vietnam war by insisting on (incompetently) managing the war by alternately taking and surrendering territory. Jimmy Carter couldn’t mount a simple rescue effort (though the Canadians could). Bill Clinton specialized in vaporizing empty tents and aspirin factories in the desert. And now Obama says he’s a killer.
Maybe he was talking about the economy.
On that score, Cheap Seats would have to agree.
