Delayed? And this is different from?

He’s got to get his talking points together, and maybe take his testosterone shot before he comes out.

Late again, does anyone in this administration think about other people?

“Late again, does anyone in this administration think about other people?” – Moe

Sure they do. As revenue sources (read; dhimmis), pawns, and human props for photo ops.

Also, symbolisim is EVERYTHING in the East, where Obama went to madrassa. Being constantly late symbolizes that everyone’s time is MUCH less important than Obama’s time, and that the peons can d@mn well wait on their masters to deign to speak to them. As unworthy as we are, we should regard ANY contact as a rare privilege, and be appropriately respectful, would be how they see it.

Or, could be an inferiority complex?

“In the realm of social psychology and psychodynamics, when we discuss chronic lateness, we typically do so in reference to passive-aggression and control. An individual who is passive-aggressive is, by definition, arrogant…and arrogance is bred, not by a sense of personal power, but, rather, through fear and insecurity.

In a previous post, I mentioned a friend of mine whom I characterized as a compassionate Zen Master, disguised as a 2nd grade school teacher. Another friend of mine – the one who prompted this post – might be described as a not-so-compassionate Zen Master, disguised as a hairdresser. The other day she said, “A person who is late all the time needs to realize that [s/he is] worth being on time.” And that, of course, got me thinking…

A person who is chronically late is superficially motivated by the misplaced notion that s/he, his/her needs and his/her interests are somehow more important than the people to whom s/he is responsible. What actually underlies this sentiment is a subtle and much more pernicious sense of just the opposite.

The chronically tardy, in large measure, have a perception that others do not feel them to be important, so they operate in a way so as to impose themselves on a situation – exerting control to feel in control – while in reality they are silently validating their own sense of unworthiness, whether consciously or unconsciously.”

Post turtle Obama’s never been up to the job. ANY job. Maybe this is as good an explanation as any.

Goes nicely with his narcissim, too…

He is getting his talking points after the wonderful comments made by Dan Pfiefer yesterday that nothing is relevant in these scandals

I have this mental picture of Jay Carney getting the day’s talking and lying points chip being inserted into his positronic brain before he goes out to the podium. He has to be a robot, no one with even a shred of humanity could live with themselves if their job was fronting for the Dictator Obama crime family on a daily basis.

The ‘word of the week’ is irrelevant, as in the press briefing today is irrelevant…

Just have to share this parody with everyone from The New Yorker:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—President Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to reassure the American people that he has “played no role whatsoever” in the U.S. government over the past four years.

“Right now, many of you are angry at the government, and no one is angrier than I am,” he said. “Quite frankly, I am glad that I have had no involvement in such an organization.”

The President’s outrage only increased, he said, when he “recently became aware of a part of that government called the Department of Justice.”

“The more I learn about the activities of these individuals, the more certain I am that I would not want to be associated with them,” he said. “They sound like bad news.”

Mr. Obama closed his address by indicating that beginning next week he would enforce what he called a “zero tolerance policy on governing.”

“If I find that any members of my Administration have had any intimate knowledge of, or involvement in, the workings of the United States government, they will be dealt with accordingly,” he said.

Julie, knowing these idiots as we do, they’d smear the wrong person. Maybe someone named Fiat….Chevrolet….Ford….etc
