More Obama I Say. MORE O!-BA!-MA!


In "World's Greatest Orator" Morgan has had it:

Barack Obama has become a nightmarish, freaky bore. I mean, just face the cold hard reality: When He steps up to a podium, do you even have a glimmer of “let’s see what He has to say here”? Anticipate learning something new? Seeing something unexpected? Can you even rely on being entertained?

To which I must remark, "Au contraire, mon frère. Tout le monde désire un crescendo!" I was vastly entertained by the above clip in which we learn just how long the boot sequence on the teleprompter actually is; in which the phrase "Wait for it" acquires a new and more resonant meaning. Yes I fear I must differ and return to some previous observations from yester-yester-yester-day when love was such a simple game to play: More Obama I Say. MORE O!-BA!-MA!

I have come to realize that what is deeply wrong with this country is that so far we have not heard and seen enough of President Obama.

I now think we need to see more. Much more. We need to have a morning message from the President every day on all cable news channel. Indeed, we need to have it broadcast on all TV channels, especially ESPN and other places where citizens dodge their need to know the truth.

We need to see his message in the lead in to Good Morning America and Fox and Friends both without fear or favoritism.

Weather Channel too.

We need to have Barack Obama’s message, whatever it might be on whatever day, delivered to all of us on the front page of whatever newspaper we are still reading.

We need to have his voice and his message as the lead-in to NPR’s Morning Edition.

We need to have his message replace the bumper music at the top of Rush Limbaugh’s show.

In short, we cannot have enough of listening to the President tell us what he’s thinking and what the right way to think about what he’s thinking is.

We need to hear his words and see his face every day. Every single day.

I am in ernest about this. I will even pay higher taxes to make this so. We need, in the most urgent and important way, to see and him him All. The. Time.

I hope the coming address to Congress and a grateful nation is only the beginning of this program of all Obama all the time.

Didn't the federal gov't just roll out in NYC a cell phone 'app' that enables them to send a text to every phone? Wasn't it touted as a precursor to a nationwide program? Didn't they say you would not be able to opt out?

Love your idea.

You're right. More.

I agree. More Obama.

I read that book long ago. Nineteen Eighty Four.

Now the 'app' on the cell phone. as mentioned above, can make it true.

Yes, more Obama! (I'm heavily invested in syrup of Ipecac futures.)

At least he didn't thank Admiral Mullen for his excellent service as a corpse-man.

Also - don't they teach 'winging it' in the fancier schools?

Surely he would have many a rollicking good yarn to tell of his boyhood years in Indonesia, to fill in these awkward teleprompter BSOD? After all, writing a book about something is guaranteed to sear it in one's brain...

Also, it's hard not to see the cogs turning in that minuscule brain, planning a whole new meaning to the phrase 'boot sequence' for whomever had the misfortune to be running the teleprompter that day.

Alas, as much as I see the man as a complete and utter dolt, I'm guessing that he was waiting for all of the sailors to file in, which in itself is a bit ridiculous, since in my experience everyone else first takes their places, and then the great man arrives with much fan fare, and the playing of Hail to the Chief by the Marines from down the street.

Well, that first one minute and 21 seconds was the Present-Dent at his most profound.

I am certainly not a BHO fan...and I so wanted this to be him being just awful...but I suspect he was waiting for the 21 gun salute to finish. It probably takes about a min or so...having stood through many salutes (though only one 21 gun salute). Sorry.
