A Seminal Moment?












A couple of days ago Adolf watched a report on the BAJA's latest gaffe. I thought then 'This is the end for Obama. He just cooked his goose good and proper." This time it was the old 'live mike' trick except that this one was pretty serious.

Obama was caught out offering concessions to Vladimir Putin via Putin's mate Medvedev. (Concessions on missile defense when there is no negotiation in train.) The real shocker from Obama was his request for Putin to wait until his re-election in November, after which he would no longer be accountable to the voters for his actions.

Here was a US President admitting that whatever he was going to concede would not go down well with the electorate. As an aside, he was selling out on of the US and Europe's most important defense systems.

The President was caught with his pants well and truly down. This clip will feature nationwide in anti Obama TV advertising and I think its effect will be devastating.

A couple of other such moments seep through the fog of Adolf's memory:-

Jim Bolger and his superannuation surcharge gaffe.














Gough Whitlam and his sale of Australian foreign policy to Iraq in return for funding the ALP's campaign debt and forthcoming costs.












Paul Keating and his 'recession Australia had to have.'













Can you think of a few more? Maggie Thatcher's poll tax perhaps?

Obama is a cocksucker who wants to cripple the US & the Wests' power (military-wise and economic-wise) by turning it into a socialist state. There has been a rumor (on the internet) which said that Obama used to visit a massage parlor (or homosexual club) in the 1980s.

When a Democrat like Dick Morris (former Clinton adviser) says he doesn't like what Obama is doing to America:

The Real Obama: Welcome to Obamaville

then one can't really argue otherwise, because it means that it is not about left or right argument anymore. It is about seeing your own culture being destroyed within (ie, the president). If you're a left, then you wouldn't like that. If you're a right, then it is the same.

Or, here was a US president telling a foreign ruler unpopular in the US that he doesn't want to be doing negotiations with them while RWNJ's are looking for dirt to throw at him during an election campaign. One or the other.

Could be. Or he's just a dirt bag.

Obama Disarms America – Dick Morris

Oh well, Keating got elected as PM after saying that. So did Bolger. Tories won after Thatcher's poll tax disaster. Good news for Obama's reelection chances then. Thanks for that. Four more years.
