How Soon Will This Happen?

This fellow, Mychal Massie, has obviously researched his subject and documented it very well.
To be fair and balanced, an opposing opinion should be given. What say you on the subject. Will Obama crack in public and what will it take to put him over the edge?

Hat Tip to Anita, long time friend and former classmate.


[][]When will Obama crack in public?Posted: April 19, 2011
by Mychal Massie

At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, "Get used to it" – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to "get a more fuel-efficient car."

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington . And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they're spending and living large at taxpayer expense – opulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf.

Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States . The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidential – which is why it's so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order "to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice – but we don't have to sacrifice the America we believe in."

The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are behaving as if they've never had two nickels to rub together – and now, having hit the mother lode, they're going to spend away their feelings of inadequacy at the taxpayers' expense.

Obama continues to exhibit behavior that, at best, can be described as mobocratic and, at worst, reveals a deeply damaged individual. In a February 2010 column, I asked,
"Is Obama unraveling?" I wrote that it was beginning to appear the growing mistrust of him and contempt for his policies was beginning to have a destabilizing effect on him.

At that time, I wrote that not having things go one's way can be a bitter pill, but reasonable people don't behave as he was behaving. He had insulted Republicans at their luncheon, where he had been an invited guest. I had speculated that was, in part, what had led him to falsely accuse Supreme Court justices before Congress, the nation and the world, during the 2010 State of the Union address.

It appeared, at that time, as if he were "fraying around the emotional edges." That behavior has not abated – it has become more pronounced. While addressing the nation, after being forced to explain the validity of his unilateral aggression with Libya , America witnessed a petulant individual scowling and scolding the public for daring to insist he explain his actions.

But during an afternoon speech to address the budget/debt, he took his scornful, unstable despotic behavior to depths that should give the nation cause for concern. Displaying a dark psychopathy more representative of an episode of "The Tudors" television series, he invited Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.., to sit in the front row during his speech and then proceeded to berate both Ryan and Ryan's budget-cutting plan. Even liberal Democrats were put off by the act. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough questioned the sanity of Obama's actions.

Today, criticism is coming from all sides. A senior Democrat lawmaker said, "I have been very disappointed in [Obama], to the point where I'm embarrassed that I endorsed him.. It's so bad that some of us are thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid of this guy?" ("Democrats' Disgust with Obama," The Daily Beast, April 15, 2011)

Steve McCann wrote: Obama's speech "was chock full of lies, deceit and crass fear-mongering. It must be said that [he] is the most dishonest, deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power I have ever witnessed" ("The Mendacity of Barack Obama,"
AmericanThinker..com, April 15, 2011).

McCann continued: "[His] performance was the culmination of four years of outright lies and narcissism that have been largely ignored by the media, including some in the conservative press and political class who are loath to call [him] what he is in the bluntest of terms: a liar and a fraud. That he relies on his skin color to intimidate, either outright or by insinuation [against] those who oppose his radical agenda only add to his audacity. It is apparent that he has gotten away with his character flaws his entire life, aided and abetted by sycophants around him. …"

With these being among the kinder rebukes being directed at Obama, and with people becoming less intimidated by his willingness to use race as a bludgeon, with falling poll numbers in every meaningful category and an increasingly aggressive tea-party opposition – how much longer before he cracks completely?

The coming months of political life are not going to be pleasant for Obama. Possessed by a self-perceived palatine mindset, that in his mind places him above criticism, how long before he cracks in public? Can America risk a man with a documented track record of lying and misrepresenting truth as a basic way of life, who is becoming increasingly more contumelious?

Great article.

I believe that a good debater could destroy him in the presidential debates.

I thought McCain would be he was a major disappointment.

I think he would fold if he faced someone tough.

He would either getting petulant and small or resort to his inappropriate and unfunny humor.

I’ve observed the same untoward behaviors as Mr. Massie. I could not be more disgusted with Obama; he is a disease on our great nation, but worse than that, he is someone overwhelmingly elected president of the United States. AP reports that he continues to enjoy the confidence of 60% of the people —but of course, they only poll Democrats. Rasmussen says he’s at 43%. Well, my friend … 43% is far too high … and if true, it places him within striking distance of reelection.

Mr. Massie isn’t writing for you or me. We have our opinions and we don’t need reinforcement from Mr. Massie. But where Massie could be convincing, he loses the attention of moderates and left-leaning critters by equating Obama to poor rural Negro folk. There is nothing remotely rural, or poor, about Obama. Obama is a metrosexual Chicago thug who amply convinces the urban black they need more government. I think the analogy must insult rural blacks (except Shirley Sherrod). I have no doubt Obama will again capture 98% of the black vote. Massie should focus his attentions on urban blacks.

Super piece...
actually, I'm watching THE TUDORS series right now, funny enough! It's hardly Obama-esque but I see his point.

Ah, Chuck, ....John "waterboarding didn't help find Osama" McCain...I've forgiven the dope a lot but I won't forgive that. BUt, heck, he's got a daughter who is more afraid of shaming her mother by not wearing sunscreen than she is for appearing seemingly nude on television. (no, not even close to nude, but we get the picture).

As usual, let me just say I agree with Mustang; he thinks and writes better than anything I could add!

And yet, it seems, the Republicans can't offer us a candidate that can beat him, at least at this point!

I believe that a good debater could destroy him in the presidential debates.

I watched the first Republican debate, it certainly left me wanting.

Unfortunately, those of us that were old enough to have experienced the Reagan years got spoiled by President Reagan's ability to dismantle the left with so much class. We haven't seen that since.

Even if the President does totally lose it, many of the same folks that voted for him last time will still vote for him again. We're all bloggers and we've dealt with those people in the blogosphere.

I was force fed McCain last time around and I held my nose and voted for him, I'll not do that again!

Remembering my youth and fighting for civil rights for blacks, I couldn't agree with you more Mustang. As I read the piece, I had a shudder pass through me "this won't be well tolerated." Mr. Massie can articulate the narcissism and "psychopathy" that is Obama, but he needs to include all of his audience. His chosen metaphor is off the mark by a large margin.

SCOTTY. Herman Cain could tear Obama a new one and put him on the brink of breakdown.
I agree with Mustang that Massie needs to re-direct his comments toward a wider audience or he will lose the group of focus for the message.

Ticker said...

Chuck, McCain was running because "it was his time'. We certainly don't need anyone else running just because it is their time. May I name a few, Romney, Huckabee, Palin, Paul, etc. You can add to the list I am sure.

New faces, new blood, like Herman Cain are what is needed.

Mebbe, like I said I wasn't too impressed with the first round of debates.

That said, I would vote for Cain, if he makes it that far. It's early yet.

The snobs of the Republican Party have a way of eating their own when they see their power to anoint being eroded away.
