This Week in Unhinged Right-Wing Pomposity – October 1, 2012

First up is a question that Jennifer Rubin (Washington Post political blogger) would like to ask President Obama:

After Sept. 11, 2001, there were no terrorist attacks on the United States, but during your administration there have been the jihad-inspired Fort Hood massacre and the killing of four Americans in Libya, so isn’t your anti-terror record worse than Bush’s? – Jennifer Rubin, Obama debate questions

After September 11, 2001? Wait, so we give George W. Bush a pass on 9/11 because?… — See, this is one reason I say 9/11 didn’t change everything. If you believe it did, then it makes it easier to give the Bush administration a pass and only judge them post-9/11. That’s a load of shit. Hey, if Obama is responsible for Bush’s recession then Bush can be responsible for allowing the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history to happen on his watch.

 

Ghostbusters - Stay Puft Marshmallow ManNext up is good old Newt Gingrich. You remember him? He’s the former Republican Speaker of the House and a former Republican presidential candidate. — Who could forget when he said “I’m going to be the nominee.” Ah, good times. Well now Mr. Stay Puft says Obama is “not a real president.” Really? Could’ve fooled me. So, who has been president the past four years?

[Obama] really is like the substitute [National Football League] referees in the sense that he’s not a real president. He doesn’t do anything that presidents do, he doesn’t worry about any of the things the presidents do, but he has the White House, he has enormous power, and he’ll go down in history as the president, and I suspect that he’s pretty contemptuous of the rest of us. — You have to wonder what he’s doing. I’m assuming that there’s some rhythm to Barack Obama that the rest of us don’t understand. Whether he needs large amounts of rest, whether he needs to go play basketball for a while or watch ESPN, I mean, I don’t quite know what his rhythm is, but this is a guy that is a brilliant performer as an orator, who may very well get reelected at the present date, and who, frankly, he happens to be a partial, part-time president. — This is a man who in an age of false celebrity-hood is sort of the perfect president, because he’s a false president. He’s a guy that doesn’t do the president’s job. – Newt Gingrich — Newt’s Dog Whistle: Obama is ‘Not a Real President’

Does anybody know what the hell Newt is talking about? Republicans should stick to writing fictional novels. That’s at least one thing they are extremely gifted at doing.

 

And last, we have Fox News contributor Steven Crowder. He believes the only reason people vote for Obama is because they will get “free crap” from the government.

Millennials, they tend to vote, as you see with the Occupy movement, for more free crap. Not based on the constitutional parameters of government, not based on founding principles, but on what the government can give them, and because they’re voting that way, they’re doing it wrong. – Steven Crowder — Fox Contributor: Young People Vote For Obama To Get ‘More Free Crap’

Well shit. I guess you caught me with my hand in the cookie jar again. Thank you very much Steven for setting us [Obama supporters] straight. You hit the nail on the head. All I’m looking for is free crap. Man, to think I was deluding myself for believing that housing, food and health care should be something everyone has access to. I should listen to Mitt Romney when it comes to those luxury items. Why should people feel entitled to food?
