“Barry” Obama, and symptoms of Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS)

Don’t Believe the Hype

Prominent in today’s headlines is Obama’s proposal for tax cuts. Some commenters are optimistic that Barry is not really as much of a Marxist goon as his history and campaign rhetoric suggested. I disagree.

Obama is Uniting Us

Even before his coronation in a few weeks, Barack Obama is bringing the country together. Turns out, the majority in nearly every state wants more information about the facts of his birth and citizenship.

 

C’mon, Barry, show us the document!

Obama’s Birth Challenged Again

The Electoral College has met and cast the actual votes making Barry the President-elect. This has not deterred the Obama Birth Deniers:

A second conference has been posted on the docket for the U.S. Supreme Court over the issue of Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the White House, this one scheduled a week after Congress is to review the Electoral College vote tabulation.

Listen Carefully

First, from today’s headlines:

Somalia's president has resigned after months of political infighting within the UN-backed transitional government.

The government has failed to restore security to Somalia, which has been without an effective central government since 1991.

Hit That Sh*t, Mr. Prez

In a most untimely manner, Time has published a series of photos of Barack Obama from 1980. This was before his awakening to a political calling, back when he was a layabout weedblower and part-time cokehead. And, if I recall correctly, when he was still Barry the Hawai’ian, before he started crafting his Afro-Barack identity.

Weapons of Mass Abduction

Piracy off the Somali coast continues to be a significant concern. Fourteen ships and over 200 sailors are currently held captive. Fret not, the UN is on the case:

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously approved a US resolution allowing countries to pursue Somali pirates on land as well as at sea.

It is an extension of the powers countries already have to enter Somali waters to chase pirates.

We Have Representative Government

Do you believe Sarah Palin said she, “could see Russia from her house?” If so, you’re in agreement with 86.9% of Obama voters. But Palin never said it. It was a line from Tina Fey in a Saturday Night Live sketch.*

Misinformation as News, Obama Birth Edition

The Supreme Court has decided against considering the latest challenge to Obama’s citizenship. Their decision was issued without comment.

This time, the story has made it past the blogosphere. The StarTribune posted a longer version of the AP’s story, which included this:

Obama Citizenship Challenge, Round 3

The US Supreme Court has denied to review the New Jersey challenge to Obama’s natural-born citizenship. But there’s yet another, this time from Connecticut, which the Supremes will consider considering this Friday.

ODS

Although I created a tag on NRR for my Obama Derangement Syndrome posts, I do not think I have been truly afflicted. At least not yet. As evidence of my mental health, I have made all these points, either here or in the meat world:

Presidents really don't have that much to do with the economy. Constitutionally, their scope for action independent of Congress is extremely limited. For we citizens, that means presidential utility in such matters is largely to focus public opinion on Congress when Congress is failing to act, or acting inappropriately (such as looking after their own butts or catering to special interests), rather than taking care of the broader public interest.

Malkin Exposes Berg as a Truther

A princess in the righty blogosphere believes Obama was born in Hawai’i. Michelle Malkin made her name with her rhetoric more than her reason. She commits a standard ad hominem fallacy while exposing attorney Phillip Berg as a 9/11 Truther:

The Dream Lives in Lousiana

In a startling act of good sense, Louisiana voters have rejected 9-term incumbent US Representative William Jefferson (D) in a run-off election. Jefferson made national headlines when he was found to be storing $90,000 in cash in his freezer, that being bribe money he accepted in an FBI sting. It seems that the new post-Katrina New Orleans might not be so tolerant of the culture of corruption.

Supremes to Consider Considering Obama’s Birth

The Berg v. Obama suit is not the only challenge to Barry’s ascendancy:

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider Friday whether to take up a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship, a continuation of a New Jersey case embraced by some opponents of Obama's election.

Founding Fathers Confound Obama

Those of us in the dwindling minority who believe the US Constitution is law which must be obeyed are waiting (in vain?) for Obama to prove his birth qualifications to hold the office of President. Hawai’ian officials, “have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate.” But those officials are mum on what the document says. His genuine long-form birth certificate exists. So, why doesn’t Barry let anyone see it?

Meanwhile, that danged Constitution presents an obstacle to Barry’s pick for Secretary of State:
