Media tycoon Mort Zuckerman, who recently admitted writing Barack Obama’s speeches in the past, has come out with an article, “Obama is Barely Treadiong Water“, in which Zuckerman criticizes Obama from the state of the economy, to healthcare, to everything in between. Among Zuckerman’s rants:
The hope that fired up the election of Barack Obama has flickered out, leaving a national mood of despair and disappointment. Americans are dispirited over how wrong things are and uncertain they can be made right again. Hope may have been a quick breakfast, but it has proved a poor supper. A year and a half ago Obama was walking on water. Today he is barely treading water. Then, his soaring rhetoric enraptured the nation. Today, his speeches cannot lift him past a 45 percent approval rating.
There is a widespread feeling that the government doesn’t work, that it is incapable of solving America’s problems. Americans are fed up with Washington, fed up with Wall Street, fed up with the necessary but ill-conceived stimulus program, fed up with the misdirected healthcare program, and with pretty much everything else. They are outraged and feel that the system is not a level playing field, but is tilted against them. The millions of unemployed feel abandoned by the president, by the Democratic Congress, and by the Republicans.
Republicans are benefiting not because they have a credible or popular program—they don’t—but because they are not Democrats. In a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, nearly two thirds of those who favor Republican control of Congress say they are motivated primarily by opposition to Obama and Democratic policy. Disapproval of Congress is so widespread, a recent Gallup poll suggests, that by a margin of almost two to one, Americans would rather vote for a candidate with no experience than for an incumbent. Throw the bums out is the mood. How could this have happened so quickly?
The fundamental problem is starkly simple: jobs and the deepening fear among the public that the American dream is vanishing before their eyes. The economy’s erratic improvement has helped Wall Street but has brought little support to Main Street. Some 6.8 million people have been unemployed in the last year for six months or longer. Their valuable skills are at risk, affecting their economic productivity for years to come. Add to this despairing army the large number of those only partially employed and those who have given up their search for work, and we have cumulative totals in the tens of millions.
It is clear that the magical moment of Obama’s campaign conveyed a spell that is now broken in the context of the growing public disillusionment. Obama’s rise has been spectacular, but so too has been his fall.
There’s a lot of paragraphs I left out, but you get the general idea – Obama isn’t Zuckerman’s bff any more.
The Mayor isn’t actually sure what Zuckerman is complaining about. Zuckerman wasn’t lied to by Obama years ago when he was writing his speeches, Zuckerman was one of the media entities that actually created Obama and his lies. It was filth like Zuckerman that wrote the lies that Obama spoke in his leg-tingling speeches. Zuckerman knew what the American public wanted to hear, and even though he knew NOTHING about Obama (or perhaps he did, which makes it 1000x worse for Zuckerman), he had no trouble bald-face lying to the American public through his puppet Obama.
Obama isn’t a liar, he’s actually been rather truthful for a politician. Obama is a socialist and governs as a socialist. The Mayor knew Obama was a socialist (although The Mayor actually thinks Obama is a communist) before he was elected, you knew Obama was a socialist before he was elected, EVERYONE with a pulse knew Obama was a socialist. YET, Zuckerman wrote those speeches that made Obama seem like a moderate. Is that Obama’s fault or Zuckerman’s? Or both. More importantly, if you were to hang Obama or Zuckerman for treason, which one do you think should swing first? Decisions, decisions.
I’m not sure why Zuckerman is upset at Obama’s health care “reform”, liberals like Zuckerman have been fighting for this exact “reform” for decades upon decades. Now he has it, so what’s the problem? Zuckerman is upset about the stimulus but agrees with the nature of stimulus, quoting, “Americans are fed up with Washington, fed up with Wall Street, fed up with the necessary but ill-conceived stimulus program”. Zuckerman admits the massive, pork-laden slush-fund stimulus was necessary, but doesn’t agree with how it was administered. That’s semantics.
Zuckerman knew well in advance that Obama attended a church where the bigot Wright was Minister. That didn’t bother Zuckerman. Zuckerman knew that Obama’s wife hated America and openly said as much. That didn’t bother Zuckerman. Zuckerman knew Obama was influenced by commies like Alinsky, hung around terrorists like Bill Ayers, and the convicted felon Antoin Rezko. That didn’t bother Zuckerman.
But now that Obama’s poll numbers have completely tanked and the Demonrats are going to get their collective asses served to them on a platter come November, NOW Zuckerman is upset?
Fuck you, Zuckerman. YOU’RE the problem.
YOU created this mess, it’s YOUR head that should roll. You can’t play both sides of a coin, and that’s what this little puke is trying to do. He tried to con America into believing his lies, and now that things have gone sideways the douchebag is trying to cover his ass.
Zuckerman has NO solutions to any of the problems HE created and now he’s trying to blame Obama. It won’t work. The day of reckoning is coming near, and Zuckerman knows it. When the day finally comes, I hope to hell there is no mercy for pieces of shit like this guy.
