The game? Pin the Tail on the Jackass. The participants: Barack Obama and Ash Carter. Winning jackass? Who else but America’s Commander in Conceit!
Yes, Obama gives himself another the Distinguished Public Service award.
At least this time he actually attempted to disguise that his action. The interesting part of my sarcasm is that Obama very well may figure he’s pulled one over on us. Keep in mind this is the man who said he didn’t renege on his ObamaCare promise of “If you like your…”
Recall Obama split a few hairs, saying that he meant only if the plans were compliant with ObamaCare.
As for Obama latest distinction, Breitbart noted:
“On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
“Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.”
In a year that award will sell on Ebay for $5.85 less than an Earl Scheib paint job, and Obama will have to cover shipping.
What possesses this narcissist?
Is it not enough the guy has been the ruler of the free world for 8 years. He stills needs to give himself bogus awards? Obama must really need constant gratification. Perhaps that why he hired a PR firm to help him keep his polling numbers high. What’s pathetic about that idea is Obama has a complicit media, and yet he still feels the need to keep PR running like a heat pump in a Texas summer.
What could the award possibly be for?
That stellar ObamaCare about to undergo surgery at the direction of Dr. Donald Trump? That cancer will be removed in its entirety, no chemo needed.
Perhaps the award is for having no scandals during his administration? As reported by the New York Post,
“The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself,” Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett said on CNN on Sunday,
Breitbart counted 18 scandals, but what do they know?!
No wait. This award is comes from not allowing any foreign terrorist organizations to attack America since 9-11.
If not for these things, it could be for saving the economy, when Bush put up the $787 billion on his behalf.
Well maybe it was from making lots of people stop looking for work, thus lowering the unemployment rate below 5 percent. Now that took some selling.
America’s credit rating could have been lower without Obama. Race relations worse. Even more terrorism.
But America was graced with a real leader, so we avoided all the good things in order understand the lessons Obama taught us.
