This is about the debt ceiling debate.
I think it's a good thing that Obama has been pushing this the way he has been. He is in a somewhat dicey position to win re-election as it is, what with the racism and anti-intellectualism both, that are common in this country.
I am no one, but I will have my say, and that is to say that I think he is acting not as a puppet now. He may have fallen for some of that before.
But he may have seen the light now.
He was an amateur, but a quick study. How many people on this blog disagree with that? How many who have ever gotten any sense of the man will honestly disagree with that?
Barack Obama is a very smart man. Anyone who states otherwise, can be laughed off quickly. Yeah, and he's, well, he's half-black. Oh well. Some of us don't even notice anymore. He's just a guy who is POTUS, nice-looking guy, smart, talented.
I'm seeing him as a martyr now. Just the fact that he's taken this as far as he has, is leading him to that. He's gonna get blamed for the sneaky shit set up in advance by all of those words-fail-me polluted sick horrible greed-heads who are ruining our lives.
I'm, sadly, with Pluto now. I'm so sorry that he had to come to this. He had a ton of potential and now this? Better that we had been cunning enough to laugh and throw McCain back at them, like some sort of refused, lightly decaying, bait, and also just ignored that whole Palin thing.
But still, Obama's not all that old, and I bet he's getting more canny all the time. I hope he comes out of this positively, one way or another, and continues to be the brilliant and caring person that many here believe he truly is. I know he has tons of potential to help, like Jimmy Carter has.
I think this whole thing is demonstrating more and more though, that it was all a set up. I don't blame Obama for that, though I do think he kind of fell for the lure of power. And please ask yourselves, fellow Kossacks...those of you who are in politics, those of you who are in positions where you might have a chance of making the big time..would you not have made the gamble?
And those of us who know who is at fault, aren't going around pointing fingers at Barack Hussein Obama. Pfft.
I'm reminded of games I played, as a child, where one would stand in the middle of a circle and the other children would throw the ball at the child in the circle.
There are many ways to write rules for such a game.
What happens when you are hit by the ball? What happens when you catch the ball? What happens when someone on the outside of the circle catches the ball and throws it back at you?
The cheese fucking stands alone.
The cheese stands alone
One thing about being the cheese,
Is that there is a lot of room.
And also, you get to be in the middle,
It has been said
That when your ass is on the line
You are well situated.
It has also been said, that he who hesitates is lunch.
But, what else is the cheese to do?
All there alone in the middle
It is a sort of structured hesitation, all of this getting out of the way.
Backed off; everybody else is in the picture.
The cheese is the camera.
The cheese is the lunch.
