So, once again, it looks very much like a bunch of folks here on the interwebs have been duped into believing President Obama has TAKEN OVER THE WORLD with his massive, superhuman powers and he's going to kill us, kill us, KILL US!!

Join me below the fold for not-so-much:

So, most of you know I've been here for many years (see 5 digit UID for confirmation) and I've been witness to a great number of "Wolf!" calls over President Obama and I am really getting F'ng sick and tired of this shit.  And, yeah, this is a rant.

Remember when "No public option!!!!!" meant healthcare reform was a non-starter, doomed to failure and ignominy for Obama and the Democratic party?

Not-so-much.

Remember when "Catfood commission!!!!!" meant Obama and complicit Democrats were ABSOLUTELY going to make Grandma eat Catfood and make her die on the street thanks to Obama's CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE!!!!!!

Not-so-much.

Remember when "Drone strikes!!!!" meant Obama was busy killing innocent civilians at the drop of a hat, brushing them ALL off like so many flies?

Not-so-much.

And, of course, Susan Rice covering up Benghazi and Hilary covering up Benghazi and the IRS TARGETING the Tea Party's "social services" exemption and, of course, Obama coming to get your guns and Obama creating Hurricane Sandy to win his last election and whatever F'ng else the corporate media can make up.  Oh, like NSA GATHERING ALL OUR COMMUNICATIONS TO USE THEM AGAINST US IN A POLICE STATE!!!!!!

Not.  So.  Much.

Basically, we're either too stoopid to see through all the smoke they're blowing or we're very, very, very easily distracted and manipulated into throwing Obama under a bus every time anyone screams ANYTHING, with or without ANY FACTS TO BACK IT UP.

Take Bush-follower Glenn Greenwald, for example.  He of the newest Obama SCANDAL to rock our world.  Turns out he's very conveniently blown the entire operation totally out of proportion.  

Are you all REALLY all that surprised?  

Geez.  How pathetic.

So I just want you all to know that the next time - say TOMORROW - when the next big, fat Obama "scandal" breaks, I will be ROFLMAO at whoever falls for this shit once again.

Chumps.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
