It is not surprising that conservatives are mocking The Clown™ in the White House as a naïve jerkoff who has no idea what he is doing as President. That is a given. But now some liberals – the same liberals who mocked President Bush for eight years – are starting to make nearly the same conclusions: that The Clown™ is so unprepared to have been President that he is slowly becoming a useless appendage. Now, Frank Rich, Doofus du jour of The New York Times, tells The Clown™ that his “Katrina moment” may be upon him.
Wow. A “Katrina moment” is what apparently swallowed up President Bush’s popularity, but that came in September 2006, five years into his administration. The Clown™ is just two months in.
Has a ‘Katrina Moment’ Arrived?
A CHARMING visit with Jay Leno won’t fix it. A 90 percent tax on bankers’ bonuses won’t fix it. Firing Timothy Geithner won’t fix it. Unless and until Barack Obama addresses the full depth of Americans’ anger with his full arsenal of policy smarts and political gifts, his presidency and, worse, our economy will be paralyzed. It would be foolish to dismiss as hyperbole the stark warning delivered by Paulette Altmaier of Cupertino, Calif., in a letter to the editor published by The Times last week: “President Obama may not realize it yet, but his Katrina moment has arrived.”
Rich then mixes together a narrative of the first two months of this maladministration, put together with some leftist sympathy for what he is trying to do. That is to be expected. But to hear Frank Rich use terms like this, to mock The Clown™ the way that he does, is stunning.
Stay tuned, folks. We are now on a highway and things are about to get very dark for America, a nation run by a doofus out of his element. Far, far out of his element.
