At this point, I’m reading about the events of the past couple of days over on whatever planet Barack Obama lives on and am beginning to think the man is losing it. First we have the prophet Obama:
This week, President Barack Obama claimed his version of health care reform is “a core ethical and moral obligation,” beseeching religious leaders to promote his government-run scheme. Questioning the patriotism of opponents, apparently, wasn’t gaining the type of traction advocates of “reform” had hoped.
“I know there’s been a lot of misinformation in this debate, and there are some folks out there who are frankly bearing false witness,” Obama said, invoking the frightening specter of the Ten Commandments.
On Team Righteous, we have those who meet their moral obligations; on the other squad, we must have the minions of Beelzebub — by which, of course, we mean profit-driven, child-killing, mob-inciting insurance companies.
So now, if you oppose ObamaCare or in any way question or obstruct it, you will be eternally damned into the nether regions of the nearest Hell.
Presumably, that means you get sentenced to an eternity on ObamaCare.
Then we have this mature bit of wisdom from the Greatest Communicator In The Entire History of the Universe™:
What had happened? During Obama’s remarks at a national health care forum, Obama said: “There’s something about August going into September where everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up. I don’t know what it is. But that’s what happens.”
The Politico tries to announce it’s “consensus” of what the term means, but helpfully, Obama’s press secretary straightened them up and explained it all for the reporters:
“It’s a phrase I use,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said today, hesitating at his press briefing to offer a physical demonstration of the phraseology.
“Let’s do this in a way that’s family friendly,” Gibbs said. “I think ‘wee-weed up’ is when people get all nervous for no particular reason….
“August of 2008, everybody was nervous about whether the entire presidential campaign was slipping out from the hands of the president,” Gibbs said, turning the page to this August, in which all the president’s critics are declaring his health-care initiatives in peril. “This is sort of an August pundit pattern of people getting overly nervous about something that has a long way to go…
“Bedwetting would probably be the more consumer-friendly term for it,” the press secretary said.
So at the end of August everybody in Washington – presumably including Obama, his entire staff (including Gibbs) and pretty much everyone else – is wetting the bed? And getting “wee-wee’d up”.
(There is no word on exactly how many reporters edged away from Gibbs when he informed them of this, unfortunately.)
Apparently, you can Depends on every word Obama utters.
