Obama-Sullenberger, What A Contrast

Bobo's baying-at-the-moon press conference keeps playing over in my mind. The reason is that I can't get over the difference between our pipsqueak President's fear-mongering and a true American hero's cockpit recording.

On the one hand, we heard a man who was the quintessential professional working his way through an enormous and imminent crisis – who remained astoundingly calm as he achieved complete success in saving the lives of all on board his plane.

On the other hand, we watched a man with literally no experience frantically telling us that if enormous sums aren't spent yesterday, we may never recover. And his lackies and sycophants cheered wildly. But everyone, even those cheering fools, can have no confidence in someone who has accomplished nothing, and who is younger than half the people he's lecturing.

And compounding his pathetic pleas was the display of raw partisanship that caused me to title my last entry as I did.

The boy has failed. The man succeeded. Everyone sees the contrast, and his supporters know that they voted for hope, not experience or accomplishment or even knowledge, because Obama has only his rhetoric with which to convince, and even that failed him last night.

Their President should literally be removed right now for demonstrating rank incompetence in his entire two weeks in office. The man is simply unfit to serve. We would have far more confidence if it were Captain Sullenberger at the microphone last night displaying the same calm, quiet crisis management skills that we heard at that cabin microphone during that frighteningly intense two minutes when 155 lives "might never recover."

America is rudderless and without hydraulics… and there's a nobody at the helm.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    A tangent, but I just got in touch with an old college buddy through Facebook and noticed he had a photo album titled Flight 1549. He was on the plane and emerged without a scratch on him.
