"Say what? Who you calling...?" Leftoids Start to Lose It


Sometimes if gets so hard for Obamatrons to pump up the sham they slip and suddenly color outside the Journolist line. That seems to be what happened to ultra-leftoid Dana Milbank of the Washington Post today. They say that a good column "starts with a hook and ends with a zinger." If that's so Milbank found a doozy when rummaging through his brain's attic today in The jock in chief, getting his fill of sports?

Milbank's "hook" was a remark once made that Teddy Roosevelt was really just 6 years old his entire life. Alas for Milbank there's zero resemblance between TR and the Big O. Unfortunate lad that he is, Milbank takes it and runs with it.

After giving us the run-down on Obama's sports saturated weekend (Hardest working backcourt man in the history of the presidency, that O.), Milbank's looking for the zinger and before he can stop himself, this erupts from his keyboard:

[I've taken a screen shot in case it "goes away."]

Let's play "Spot the subtext!"

There is a big difference between having the exuberance and energy of a six year old - all those enthusiasms! - and acting like a petulant irresponsible preteen, which is Obama.

I don't recall reading anywhere that Theodore Roosevelt blamed everyone under the sun for things going wrong, IIRC he knew how to take responsibility.

TR was huge on personal responsibility. Mikey has it exactly right.

I'm damned proud Sensing has picked up on my photoshop. I worked hard on it.

Sounds to me like he called Obama a "boy".

Dear Mr. Vanderleun: Don't think there's much chance of the chunk you grabbed a screenshot of going down the memory hole. The entire column would have to be flushed to do the job. Maybe Milbank has had a conscience transplant...

I'm proud of your photoshop too, but damned dismayed. I thought it was real, and that The One's eagerness to chisel off people and accept gifts led him a characteristically witless acceptance of a gag gift....

The British friend that Milbank was too lazy to look up is Cecil Spring-Rice.

Mieky and Eric Blair, Roosevelt loved to to roar about personal responsibility, but was more than willing to heave it overboard if it got in his way. Brownsville, anyone? If the link isn't enough for you, try THE BROWNSVILLE AFFAIR by John Weaver. So far as not blaming others, don't ever read Roosevelt on William Howard Taft, 1911-1914, or on Woodrow Wilson or William Jennings Bryan any time. Finally, there's the grotesque Progressive Party platform of 1912, which bawled for votes for blacks outside the South, but roared for white supremacy in Dixie.....Nope, Roosevelt is my personal hero so far as Presidents go, but his warts were as outsize as his magnificences.

The real proof of Roosevelt's superiority to The One is easy:

A) Roosevelt's books. Roosevelt published his first book at age 23, and cranked out twenty five more while holding down a full time career as politician, with forays into nature exploration, ranching, and fighting. No draft dodging for Roosevelt. Nor did anyone ever accuse or even wonder if Roosevelt had written his own books.

B) Roosevelt's great command of foreign affairs. The Nobel Peace Prize Roosevelt won, the first Nobel won by an American, was real, not the kick to Geo. W.'s balls the imbecile Norwegians administered by giving The One something he couldn't earn in a century.

C) Roosevelt, like The One, was fond of spending the taxpayer's dough. But with Roosevelt, we got the Great White Fleet, and the Panama Canal. Think The One's monuments will be so lasting?

D) Roosevelt appointed Oliver Wendell Holmes to the Supreme Bench (and was mighty disappointed in him.) Try to compare the Wise Latina or the "Harvard hates the Goddamned soldiers" dean to Holmes without busting out laughing.

Sincerely yours,
Gregory Koster

This is photo really ironic. I was listening to a talk show on the way home the other night and the host referred to the messiah as President 0 (zero). LMAO.
