AP Celebrates Obama’s Split-Screen Presidency Roadshow

From a seemingly amused Associated Press:

His agenda in gridlock, Obama relishes roadshow

By JULIE PACE | July 12, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Welcome to Barack Obama’s split-screen presidency. On one side: a confident Obama making campaign-style stops around the country and ridiculing his political opponents to the delight of cheering supporters. On the other side: an increasingly unpopular president hobbled by gridlock on Capitol Hill and a steady stream of vexing foreign policy crises.

Poor Obama. He is out Victim In Chief.

Obama has long sought refuge outside of Washington when his frustrations with the nation’s capital reach a boiling point. But his ability to rally public support in a way that results in progress for his legislative agenda has perhaps never been weaker than it is as he nears the midpoint of his second term.

Could it be that people are finally catching on to the fact that Obama is only pretending that his right hand doesn’t know what his left hand is doing?

To the White House, the take-away is that Washington — and the Republican Party in particular — is out of touch with the American people and failing to address their priorities. But to GOP leaders, Obama’s activities in a midterm election year reinforce their view of a president more focused on soaring speeches and partisan politics than on working toward compromise solutions to the nation’s problems…

Wow, what a harsh view, huh. They really are racists.

During a speech Thursday in Austin, Texas — a Democratic enclave in a GOP-leaning state — Obama berated Republicans for, by his account, failing to act on "every serious idea" he’s put forth this year.

"The best you can say for them this year is that so far they have not shut down the government," he said. "That’s the best you can say. But of course, it’s only July so who knows what they may cook up in the next few months." …

Lest, we forget, it was Obama who shut down the government. Which is another minor detail will never mention.

Meanwhile, there is also this from CNS News:

‘I,’ ‘Me,’ ‘My’—Obama Uses First Person Singular 199 Times in Speech Vowing Unilateral Action

By Terence P. Jeffrey | July 11, 2014

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular–including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"–199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process.

“It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website.

“I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the crowd. “I don’t have to run for office again, so I can just let her rip. And I want to assure you, I’m really not that partisan of a guy.” …

Don’t you love it when Obama tells the truth?
