Obama Berates Birthers – When did asking honest questions become a joke?
May 6, 2013
Parody, banter, satire, burlesque, conundrum, asides and anecdotes are all forms of humor, but the President has introduced a new form of humor.
Heretofore, asking legitimate questions was thought to be part and parcel to arriving at the truth and advancing education, jurisprudence, government and common knowledge. Barack Obama has put forth the idea that such questions are now to be labeled - a joke!
Mr. Obama slammed the internet media in his address at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner recently. He poked fun at Politico, Buzzfeed and birthers but became serious at times and belittled all those who questioned his administration, policies or personal life.
Hidden behind a thin veil of humor and the chuckles of obedient mainstream media sycophants and their guests, Mr. Obama took particular aim at birthers, those who question the authenticity of his Hawaiian birth certificate.
Conspicuously missing was any mention of the hundreds of other unanswered questions to do with Mr. Obama’s past, policies and economic disasters. There is no humor to be found in these serious questions and, as yet, there are no answers.
Is the cup half empty or is it completely empty?
This would truly be funny if the birth certificate were the only missing or unseen document from the presidents past. A bevy of school records and other questions have been secreted away from the public by order of the president. Why? Your guess is as good as mine, but before we slam birthers why don’t we ask what else will be missing from the Obama Library if these records are not released? Leaving this question unanswered will leave one presidential library half-filled and only promises and failed policies will be on display
It is not what they can’t disprove or unravel that bothers those who question, but it is the lack of provability for the answers that were already proffered. That glass is not half full – it is completely empty.
Legislators would tax the internet, Obama would smash the internet
White House correspondents were not given a pass to the inner sanctums of the president’s doings because they were noted critics and hard-line questioners of his administration. It takes no wizardry to explain why they were handpicked by the president.
White House correspondents are comparable to the praise teams in most evangelical churches, but we can be certain that God has nothing to hide.
When it comes to the internet Obama gets to choose no one.
Mr. Obama chose to use that tool when he called for tweets from those who would support his policies, especially during his presidential campaign. But now that the honeymoon is over it’s the time to tell. Now the internet is his battered bride who is charging him with falsehood and skullduggery.
When Barack chose to marry the internet for his own purposes he should have remembered the old adage –“love is blind, but marriage is an eye opener.”
Mr. President, You are Not Misunderstood – And you are not a Humorist
Mr. Obama epitomizes Carnegie’s observations, but he goes a step further than most.
Barack Obama has chosen to add misplaced humor to divert the attention away from a presidency that cannot be explained in the face of the economic, moral and political devastation that has followed the absurd promise of “change we can believe in.”
