Obama scolds Democrat voters, calling their apathy “inexcusable” and “irresponsible.”
Weasel Zippers reports:
Admonishing his own party, President Barack Obama says it would be “inexcusable” and “irresponsible” for unenthusiastic Democratic voters to sit out the midterm elections, warning that the consequences could be a squandered agenda for years.
“People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up,” Obama told Rolling Stone in an interview to be published Friday. The president told Democrats that making change happen is hard and “if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place.”
‘Cause that sounds like a leader, right?
Compare that to Jimmy Carter’s malaise speech where he blamed the country for not doing well enough to make him a great President. Funny how with Carter and Obama the fault is not theirs but everyone else’s.
Also interesting is that three days after his speech speech, Carter asked for the resignations of all of his Cabinet officers, and ultimately accepted five of them.
Recently we’ve had Larry Summers, the director of the National Economic Council and the president’s chief economic policy co-ordinator, resign. Christina Romer, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, recently returned to Berkeley and Peter Orszag, the budget director, left earlier in the summer.
The only thing bad about Obama getting booted in 2012 is that we’ll have to deal with former President Obama, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, on television with Nobel Peace Prize Winner Jimmy Carter criticizing the country for years to come. Ick.

Having lived through the long national nightmare that was the Carter presidency, I was never so happy to see a new president inaugurated as I was on January 20th, 1981.
It seems, though, that reincarnation is real! At least in politics. The proof being that the ghost of the failed Carter regime has come back to life. Talk about a recurring national nightmare. This is some extra-strength bad karma, man.

I'm just left to wonder what's going to be Obama's Iran Hostage situation. Because it's coming. God have mercy on us all.

Amy, that would be Iran's nuclear aspirations of course.

The third message from heaven…
If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

So does that mean that Obama will start having belly aches and fail to show up in public too? God willing and the bile don't rise!

Hey, Obama may be right on this one, even if he's giving the voters the wrong instructions. The voters deserve to be scolded once in a while; candidate Obama may have done the sweet talk, but it's the electorate that got us into this mess.

If CMR would just realize that's its really all about O and all the rest of us are just supporting cast, you might get on the WH Christmas (oops, I mean, Holiday/Winter Soltice) List 😉
