The Gadfly

Some years ago Radio Left Wing ran a late night programme of light classical music.  I think it started at eleven and went for one hour.  Adolf rarely missed it.

The theme for the programme was a piece called 'The Gadfly' by Russian composer Dimitriy Shostakovich.  I'm told correct pronunciation has the emphasis on the second, rather than third, syllable.

I happened to have a CD playing in the car the other day and on came The Gadfly.

In the twilight of Obama's disastrous presidency I can think of few themes which so aptly describe his dubious tenure.

Disastrous Presidency? Oh My.

Here's a few examples of Obama's "disasters"'

More than 20 million Americans obtained health insurance that was previously beyond their means.

Bad debts at uStates hospitals at record lows.

Did not lead uStates in to futile wars such as Afghanistan and Iraq.

Halted the destruction of the uStates auto industry.

Saved the banks from their own self induced destruction

And, please note, that the majority of the money used to bail out banks and automakers has been repaid the the uStates Treasury.

No scandals in the Whitehouse or his personal life, no enriching of himself by misuse of office, no cheating on his wife.

I could go on, but here's a list for you to contemplate http://washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/marchapril-2012/obamas-top-50-accomplishments/

Maybe you could counter with a similar list of "disasters", although you do seem to exhibit many of the same personality traits as the Pendejo elect - stream of consciousness babbling, lack of factual content, changing the subject to divert attention from untruths and changing the narrative to suit ever changing brain farts.

Obama also had some failings. The continued existence of the gulag at Guantanamo Bay, the excesses of the Patriot Act, the killing of civilians by drones, and his failure to overturn the 22nd Amendment.

Do you honestly think that Pendejo Elect Trump will leave a similar legacy?

Thank you for confirming your status as a demented delusional leftie.

Adolt, I take being called a "leftie" as quite a compliment. As to the slurs, I prefer to leave that to the righteous right who seem to find playing the man preferable to playing the ball. Ad Hom, I believe it is called in the on-line world.

Of course, I realise that my challenge for you to find 50 achievements of the Pendejo elect may have been a bride too far for, so how about a list of 10? No? OK, 5. I'll settle for 5.

Have you followed the habit of the North Koreans yet and restyled your hair in the manner of Der Fuhrer of Pennsylvania Drive?

*bride* = bridge. I think Adolf would have one, but not the other. Where do trolls live? :-)

Never mind Obama's huge approval ratings it's just that he and his wife have more dignity in their little fingers than Drumph and his brainless plastic sex doll of a wife have in their entire bodies..

Yadda yadda yadda.

I'll try to translate to Adolt speak:

Yadda - I have nothing.
Yadda - I know nothing
Yadda - I have been defeated.

That is what passes for conversation in the Fiinkensein household.

Keep that up Jobless and you'll be joining Egbut and Gerald.
