Possibly because of the Obama/Hollywood fete this week with Obama
yukking it up with George Clooney and the Beautiful People, I keep
getting this annoying image of Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden on running for president in 2020: 'Never say never' Overnight Regulation: Biz groups push reg reform in new Congress Dem urges Biden to run for DNC chair MORE in “Apocalypse Now” with Obama
as the Brando baldy Col. Kurtz, the god-king gone mad from self-idolatry
and ethereal abstraction, and Biden as his coked-up scurrying sidekick
(originally played by Dennis Hopper): “He (Obama/Brando/Kurtz) is not
like you and I,” says Hopper/Biden, wild-eyed and arms flailing. “He
reads poetry. Out loud!” T.S. Eliot, no doubt.
I cannot imagine how Obama, five points behind Mitt Romney in the current Rasmussen poll, thinks this is going to work for him. Does he really want to be president a second term or is president just resume filler and like Kurtz (and Clinton), he has greater plans ahead as a demigod?
Obama is, as Bill ClintonBill ClintonTrump cuts ties with Flynn Jr. Mainstream media is the chief culprit behind ‘fake news’ Ryan: Trump's Taiwan call 'much ado about nothing' MORE is reported to have said in a new book (The Amateur by Edward Klein), such “an amateur” that Clinton pressed his wife to challenge him in the primaries. But Joe Biden is an incompetent. Bloomberg reports that he apologized to President Obama for upsetting the White House’s timetable for revealing the president’s support for same-sex marriage, according to an administration official. But this behavior, starting early on in Israel, has been characteristic of Biden.
President Obama seems today a vacuous fiction of Hollywood and the geist. But he has here the rare opportunity to shift gears on the incompetence front. He could take this opportunity to fire Joe Biden and replace him with someone serious, someone honorable, someone mature and competent and someone who could gather a few votes outside of the city limits of Los Angeles and Washington, D.C..
