The Stooges are Running the Show, Obama

It might have been the Republican shutdown (according to one person at the White House, at least). It might have been the fault of the Syrian leader Bachar Al-Assad gassing his people with chemical weapons. It might have been the National Security Agency that listened in on our conversations and tapped our mails, while intercepting our calls. It might (or probably not) be the President of the USA that never knew about any of this (or all of it at the same time). But, when it boils down to it, it was and always will be Barack Obama. He was the man at the top. He might be the puppet stroke muppet (fill in the blanks as you will, cross the i’s and dot the t’s), but he will be the person that has to pay the price for what the country has got itself into and won’t be in a position to dig itself out of the hole. Perhaps, if the US government digs so far down in that hole, then they will surely come out raging on the other side. They may end up in Timbuktu, but they will certainly be in a damn better place than on Capitol Hill. It’s President Obama that will be burned at the funeral pyre and sent floating down the Ganges one of these days. That day may not be too far off if we believe the pollsters in the US. But, can we believe anyone these days?

Obama Isn’t Liked

A new poll that was carried out by CNN/ORC and released today shows that Obama has gone up in the ratings. Yes, he went up. Of course, we are talking about the fact that there are a growing number of Americans today that consider that he is not the man fit for the job.

  • He is not honest and trustworthy either according to 53% of the people polled. Today, many people are starting to question the integrity and honesty of the most-powerful man on the planet.
  • Some of us might be answering that we could have told them that long ago. Presidents aren’t trustworthy, they are politicians. That’s antagonist and an antonym if ever there were one! When was the last time you saw an honest politician? Please tell us!
  • Since June the President has lost 12% regarding his ability to govern the country. He’s now at just 40% that believe he is able to do so.
  • That means that 60% of those polled believed that he was inadequate at the head of the state.
  • 56% did not admire President Obama. Although the question in itself begs disbelief. Presidents are not there to get admired; they are there to act and to act well. We don’t have to either look up to them or venerate them. They are people, that’s all. They just act as if they are demi-Gods from Olympus on an internship in the real world.
  • 53% of the people polled believed that he was not a strong leader and that he did not take decisions.
  • The same number believed that he did not inspire confidence.
  • 70% of those polled said that he was ‘likeable’. Yet again. What does being likeable have to do with it all? Have we forgotten what the role of a President of the most powerful economy in the world (for the moment!) is? Have we forgotten that he’s not in office to be ‘liked’ by the people? Isn’t he there to act?

With the mights and may-have’s that are flying around there are times when people (read: ‘citizens, taxpayers and voters’) must take a decision and do away with wishy-washy wherewithal sit-on-the-fence politics. Take a stance. Who is to blame and why are we in this mess? Harping on about the past thirty years and the fact that governments are all the same isn’t going to get you off sitting on that fence. Replacing Obama with another muppet-like marionette that you can stick your fingers up inside like a glove puppet to bow and scrape and come out with the radiant set of teeth when the cameras start flashing isn’t going to change the way things are run or the way things are decided. Harping on about the fact that the governments are all run by the same mafia-like power-crazed and addicted families and have been for centuries now isn’t going to stop the stooges running the show at the Oval Office and in Washington.

The pollsters might be telling the people that they aren’t happy with the President right now after all the stuff that has been launched at the fan.

Remember what happens when the stuff hits the fun? It just gets blasted back and everyone ends up getting splattered; everyone except the one that turned the fan on. Get ready, the fan just got turned on again.

At least after reading the drivel, I know why the 39% that still like obama, still like Obama.   For that, Pivotfarm can be thanked for showing us the short circuited logic behind this phenomenon.  

Has anyone seen the NY Times article that was headlining Drudge, about how Obama is "shiting from military might to diplomacy".  The NYTimes is shittier than PivotFarm, or, as shitty.

"But, can we believe anyone these days?"

No, no one, nowhere. Not in the media, not on the internet, not in grubermunt at any level. At best anything read is spun with 60% truth to sell a 40% lie, everything suspect. TV doesn't even bother with that.

Makes me justified in my mounting paranoia of recent years and angry I have participated in the lie for 50...

Wrong. Obama will be the only person in America who will not pay the price. He will go on driving the country into the ground for the next 3 years then retire in glory and go around making speeches at $100,000 a pop, play golf, or whatever the hell he feels like doing.

It's everyone else in America who will pay the price including those who opposed him every step of the way.

This may be the stupidest article ever on ZH.

Not so easy to see who pulls their strings.  The guys at the very top are faceless and nameless with a few exceptions like the British Royal family.  The ones whom are easily recognized by name are only middle managers.  The late and unmourned Jimmy Saville knew who they are.

Exactly...that's what I was tryin' to say, lol...I think pivotfarm only gets posted on here because they have that FinancialJuice search engine thing, or whatever it is, that posts all of ZH's links.  Oh well...

I would like ZH to link to more write-ups from sites like: or or Steve St. Angelo at

At least they write coherently about the PM's, energy, geo-political issues, and do it quite coherently and entertainingly as well as far as Turd goes with his podcasts each day at TFMetalsReport.

I never like anything written by this pivotfarm site.  i guess they try to be on the side of the good guys, but then say stupid things that show they don't seem to be on the ball.

For one, ass-head wasn't who gassed his was the al-queda insurgents who are backed, trained, funded, and armed by U.S, nato, and apparently, saudi arabia.

Ass-head always was a piece of shit...but he's fighting against the same terror army that's backed by this fraudulent, treasonous administration, which is also being used against the American people to steal away our rights and freedom.


Also, obama's poll numbers do not matter.  he is not up for re-election thus he will continue to do as he pleases and as he is told by fiat and he does not care whether we like it or not.  he's a sociopath surrounded by sociopaths who are marxist enemies of America.

We have 3 years to go with these people and the damages they are going to instill on America are going to be far and wide and we may never recover from it as a free nation.

I think the squids put Obama in place (twice) to piss off rational Americans, run up the debt, and shove their fat ass in Americans face.  A gross display of fiat banker power shoved down Americans thoughts.  It will backfire, there will be blowback.

This fake American, bull shit Columbia degree, affirmative action Harvard degree, and 95 IQ pathological liar is going to end up like Mussolini did.  You watch.


All them government workers unemployed with their, cough, cough, brilliance starving, no pensions, no mistresses on the side, it’s going to get ugly.

 Obama got in due to guilt, dumb voters and a worshipful media.  This idea that without the wise guidance of government society would go to hell is truly un-American. Even those opposing a powerful State are trapped in the web of advocating State policies for this or that reason.  Obama's view of America is different than any other president's and it's attributable to his past - not in a conspiratorial way but in a "we are what we know" way.

He thought of himself as foreign and his family and friends's views of Amercia were once found only at college rallies.  He's economically disastrous because he's never been interested in how wealth is created. To him, it just exists to be redistributed.  He can't manage because he never has. He's arrogant because he's been told he was so different and special and brilliant. He's the product of his past as much as we are.

He was also well supported by the vermin of pop culture. They hate anything that smacks of self control and seek the lowest common denominator as a leader. They relish that this loser is the Big Boss. That way they really get to stick it to da' man. It's like kids voting Madonna in as their new mother, then smoking weed in front of their parents whether they like it or not!" Take that, squares!

Perhaps, but when I think of a class of society that could carry out a real revolution, it sure as hell isn't the "government worker" class as a real revolution requires real work and sacrifice, not something any government worker I know would be use to doing.
