President Obama telling a story to children, just another day at the office.
President Barack Obama said in an interview with Charlie Rose on Thursday, July 12:
"When I think about what we've done well and what we haven't done well. The mistake of my first term -- couple of years -- was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times."Obama is laying two truths on the table: 1) The President's job is to lie to the American people and make them happily accept corporatist and bankster policies, and 2) I am not a good leader.
Obama is not a source of pride and confidence because he is a liar and a con artist and the American people know it. The gleam has worn off. During his first term, Obama has given the American people nothing good. He still holds up a fake birth certificate and calls it gold. He is defending the corrupt Wall Street banks that Bush and the Republicans defended when they were in power. He started new wars in the Middle East based on false intelligence and war propaganda: Libya, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, the list goes on and on. And he has piled new debts on the backs of the American middle class.
Obama should have no problem telling his story to the American people because it is so simple a story that even a four year old child can understand. This is the heart of Obama's story: America, I screwed you. I cheated you. I lied to you. I treated you like trash. Now, go to sleep and die. Good night. May God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.
