Obama Gump

In the movie “Forest Gump,” Gump’s bestest Army buddy Bubba gave us multiple examples of how many ways we can prepare shrimp. Boiled shrimp, steamed shrimp, fried shrimp, shrimp salad, shrimp scampi, Cajun shrimp, shrimp cocktail, etc., but the point remains, no matter how many ways you prepare shrimp, the main ingredient remains to be the shrimp itself. No matter how you choose to cook your yard-bird, it’s still chicken. All of the spice and sauce in the world cannot disguise the core ingredient of a dish, and the more spice you use, the more you are telling your dinner guest that the meat was tainted. Either that, or you are making it obvious that you are lost in the kitchen.

Obama too has a cut of meat in front of him that he isn’t quit sure how to prepare. He has already cooked it every imaginary way, only to find out that it is dry and hard to chew in the end. His once crowded dinning room table is quickly losing diners because of Obama’s inability to come up with a single edible dish. How many times can he poison people with his own brand of political E-coli and botchulism before people realize that he has rats running rampant in his kitchen. He can blame the sickness on the rodents all he wants to, but he is still the chef. It is up to him to present good food that will stay down, and prove to his diners that he is not trying to kill them all.

The health care debate has gone from heated to stagnate, and Obama has not been able to close the deal. Instead, he has lost much of his support due to his own lack of leadership, and his lack of understanding of his own policies. Fried or steamed, the product is rotten and the people ain’t buying it.

Some people feel that when they fail to relay their message to others, it is because listeners are to stupid to grasp what the speaker is trying to convey. They feel that if they only had one more chance to explain their side of the story again, people will get it this time. That is where Obama is right now. He cannot for the life of him understand why the once loyal flock is scattering and running away from his every idea. It must be because everyone is stupid, or racist, or just plain un-American. Obama is so consumed in his love of self that he refuses to admit that the American people are smarter than he is. We the people can easily read between his diseased lines, we fully understand what his intentions are, and we don’t need multiple lectures to help us understand him any further.

Those who were blinded by Obama’s lies and nonstop rhetoric can now see, and I think they will be very weary of wool hoods from now on, but that will not stop Obama from stealing valuable air-time in order to relish the sound of his own voice. It will not stop him from believing that the world is suffering from chronic stupidity, nor will it stop him from thinking it is his duty to straighten us all out. After all, most of us are not Harvard educated lawyers, so what do we know about playing God or saving the world from themselves?

Tomorrow night Obama will once again take to the stage. He has no doubt had multiple staff members working hard on a new recipe for his health care dinner party, but can he make a turd taste like a gourmet dish? I don’t think so, but I’m sure the MSM will chow down on whatever hits their plate, offering only praise and rave reviews, no matter how ill the rancid grub makes them. This would be a good time for Obama to admit defeat, turn out the lights, and get out of the kitchen, while both the house and the populace are still standing upright. Obama should take this opportunity to exercise his right to remain silent. At least old Bubba knew his subject.

    Very good analogy Randy. In hindsight, the speech that was delivered reminds me of another story that is a little older than Forest Gump. In the fairy tale, The Emperor’s New Clothes, the emperor is a vane man who cares more about his appearance than he does his duties to his subjects.

    Two swindlers approach the emperor and promise to make for him, a suit of clothes from the most beautiful cloth. They tell the emperor the cloth is so refined that it is invisible to anyone who is too stupid, or lowly to behold its magnificence.

    When the suit is delivered, the emperor naturally can’t see the cloth that does not exist, but he is ashamed to admit it, since to do so, would cause him to appear stupid. The emperor’s servants are afraid to defy the emperor, so they go along with the ruse, exclaiming how wonderful the emperor looks in his magnificent new clothes.

    The swindlers pretend to dress the emperor in his new suit, and the emperor then goes out to parade among the people showing off his new clothes. Like the emperor’s servants, his subjects are afraid to tell him he is exposed, until a small child, still innocent of such deceptions cries out, “the emperor is naked!”

    The people know the child is telling the truth, and gasps are heard through the crowd, but the emperor, holds his head high and continues to parade naked through the streets, the ever-oblivious proud peacock.

    Joe Wilson plays the child, and everyone knows that Obama was indeed lying.

    I think part of his problem is that there are too many cooks in the kitchen that don’t know a chicken from a shrimp. They have one goal, and what ever is in front of them, they try to make it taste like spaghetti and throw it at the wall to see if it sticks!
    I certainly agree that they turn a blind eye to ” We The People” who very well understand what he is trying to do, while he HIRES Thugs to beat the rest of us over the Head with their manufactured, costly signs, probably made by a Union Shop. This is all about Unions. This is all about taxing “We the People”. The dumb ones are the ones that are doing his bidding for him and trying to outshout “We the People”, because what they don’t get, is they will not be exempt from the taxes or long waits in lines for their Health care.
    Great Post Randy!
