What Is Obama Talking About?

DATELINE: What?ville, February 4, 2015 – When the news broke yesterday of the immolation of the Jordanian pilot, President Obama was attending yet another Obamacare dog and pony show at the White House. He was surrounded by his pity props, all ten of them, who had written letters praising the healthcare law’s impact on their lives.


At the conclusion of the show, Obama was asked about the latest ISIS atrocity. This was his opportunity to shine with a from-the-heart, unscripted response. This is what he said:


“It’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization. And I think we’ll redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of a global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated. And it also just indicates the degree to which whatever ideological they are operating off of it’s [sic] bankrupt.


We’re here to talk about how to make people healthier and make their lives better. And this organization appears only interested in death and destruction.”


The guy’s a major goofball. His delivery was pathetic. He was seated at a table, slightly hunched, speaking in fits and starts, almost inaudibly at times. His was not the commanding presence of a strong, confident leader. The words were uttered in a tired monotone. He offered not the tiniest bit of indignation at the monstrous execution or sympathy for its victim.


The President referred to ISIS merely as an “organization”, as if it were the Kiwanis Club. He called their nameless ideology “bankrupt”. That assessment oughta really put those bloody Islamic extremists in their place.


Obama did remember to repeat his catch phrase, “degrade and ultimately defeat”, like a robot. The slogan, repeated ad nauseam, was first heard the day after he admitted last summer that he had no strategy for defeating ISIS. Nifty buzzwords are great substitutes when master plans are scarce.


Most inexplicably, Obama lampooned ISIS by comparing it unfavorably to sitting around talking about his Grubered healthcare law. There’s nothing like an Obamacare love fest to make ISIS really look bad.


Is this a joke, or what?
