    Obama’s “Dukakis Tank” Moment

    Obama’s “Dukakis Tank” Moment

    This should be Obama’s Dukakis Tank moment, when pure bravado exposed the very perception of weakness the candidate hoped to overcome.

    Is there anything worse than a candidate who tries so hard to be something he is not, to fake it so hard that it hurts to watch?

    But it probably will not be, because Barack Obama is no Mike Dukakis. Obama has cheerleaders in the mainstream media far beyond Dukakis’s wildest dreams.:

    He took charge? What exactly did he do in the few hours after he rushed back from vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, barely having time to scrape the grass off his golf cleats?

    He did nothing, but he sure looked good doing it.

    New campaign slogan:

    Obama 2012, because he beat bin Laden Irene

    Update: Great minds think alike, More irenic thoughts, or Obama as Dukakis (via Instapundit)

    Can’t you people understand this was a strategy meeting? It’s purpose was to decide how to outwit this storm. Give the guy some credit. He tried his best and, like everything else he touches, it turned to dross. Make no mistake, this guy will use every tragedy, every disaster as an opportunity to beat his chest and proclaim himself a hero of the first order, way above everybody else. His fragile ego can accept nothing less. He has never stopped campaigning and will be in that mode until he is carried out the door kicking and screaming all the way.

    “He did nothing, but he sure looked good doing it.”

    Professor Jacobson! You have written the perfect slogan for the 2012 Obama run!

    Better copyright it or they’ll run it and never give you credit!

    The situation room… the vacation staged photos… the one above… Are there any photos in which Obama is doing the talking, leading a discussion, explaining anything, actually in possession of documentation, or uttering orders? He rarely looks like he’s in charge of anything…

    Just noticed that the Obama campaign websites use those obnoxious flash cookies… http://www.informationweek.com/news/security/client/231500379 No wonder the FCC and courts won’t do anything. http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Security/Microsoft-Drops-Stealthy-Regenerating-Supercookies-from-MSN-218035/

    My husband predicted Team Obama would attempt to gin up his numbers, by forcing comparisons between Irene and Katrina. In response, I surmised that this would backfire, as this reeks of bovine excrement. I am glad to see this is proceeding as I have foreseen.

    […] What a leader: This should be Obama’s Dukakis Tank moment, when pure bravado exposed the very perception of weakness the candidate hoped to overcome. […]
