Curse you Teleprompter! Why did you not warn me?

obamaWell to truly understand the incompetence of Obammers one need not look at just his fiscal policy, although you really need look no further, but we will.  We will look at his actions and words and not just the ones he can read so well from his shinny teleprompter.  As if his ill-advised joke about the Special Olympics wasn’t good enough we have The Gordon Brown Affair.  When Gordon Brown was received by the Obama Administration he brought along what was considered nice well thought out gifts Obammers in return got him a box set of movies and some models from the White House gift shop, classy!  I remember thinking and several other people such as Mark Steyn commented on the fact that in England that DVD players have a different format and that Brown would probably not even be able to play the things.  Now some people might think that at least Obammers might have been competent enough to know that and made sure to get him DVDs that would at least play on British DVD players, well he apparently wasn’t.

“The films only worked in DVD players made in North America and the words “wrong region” came up on his screen. Although he mournfully had to put the popcorn away, he is unlikely to jeopardise the special relationship – or “special partnership”, as we are now supposed to call it – by registering a complaint.

A Downing Street spokesman said he was “confident” that any gift Obama gave Brown would have been “well thought through,” but referred me to the White House for assistance on the “technical aspects”.

A White House spokesman sniggered when I put the story to him and he was still looking into the matter when my deadline came last night.

By the way, when Obama’s unlikely gift was disclosed, a reader emailed me to ask if Clueless was among the films. Funnily enough, it was not.”

I find it really funny that the President couldn’t even figure out something as simple as region coding on DVD players, come on people this is supposed to be the golden boy and the new Messiah and he can’t even figure out region coding?  This is the savior you have been waiting for and not only can he not figure out that a box set of DVDs isn’t an appropriate gift to a head of state but can’t even give the man ones that he could even watch.  OK you might call it a simple mistake but the last time I checked the guy that has his hands on the launch codes for the largest nuclear arsenal in the world should probably have his shit together a little more than this.  Did the teleprompter screw up again?

OK here is some advice for the Obamassiah:

1.  The Movie “The Wizard of Oz” is an appropriate gift for your grandmother not a Head of State, especially for a country that is one of your countries closest allies in the world.

2.  If you are stupid enough to think that “The Wizard of Oz” is an appropriate gift take a good 5 minutes of your day and figure out if the DVD you are going to give a Prime Minister is actually going to work on a DVD player in the country the guy is from.

3.  Your spokesmen should probably refrain from sniggering when questioned about your screw ups.  Well they probably shouldn’t do it ever, that’s if you want to even pretend you and your people should even be allowed to see the White House let alone be inside of it and running the country.

4.  You should never make fun of the retarded, you’re the President, now act like it, Carlos Mencia doesn’t even make fun of retarded people and he certainly doesn’t make fun of the Special Olympics and he had one of the most offensive TV shows in history.  OK I will concede  Mencia had the most offensive show in America not history, the Middle East has the most offensive shows in the world but the Middle East can barley be considered civilization so it doesn’t count.

5.  Your teleprompter is not the answer to all of your questions, I know it’s been good to you but there is someone behind it pulling the stings find that person and ask them for their advice.

6.  No Wait… Don’t ask that guy for advice since he would have been able to keep you from all of your silliness if he knew what was going on.  Here’s what you need to do, get you, Pelosi, Reed, Franks, and the Court Jester Biden and resign now before you all accidentally figure out a way to nuke us all, although that would be a step up from your fiscal policy and allot safer for us all, it will still not be a very good day.

7.  While I am glad you decided not to make wounded veterans pay for their own medical care, what in the goat fucking hell were you people thinking when you proposed that brain fart?  Seriously just the fact that you thought that one up requires you to do the honorable thing and resign with all of your staff and move to another country, preferably one without toilet paper and running water.  That mistake was so bad that it had to be intentional, and if it was not, holy crap!  People called Bush stupid but you just figured out a way to look like more of an idiot in 1 sentence than Bush could even try to do in his whole life.  Seriously how bad is your brain working when the MSN can’t even figure out a way to polish that turd for you?  How bad do you really have to suck when your own propaganda machine can’t even try to defend you?

I hate it here…

  1. From this side of the Atlantic, Obama is the best thing to happen to America and the Western World in a very very long time.

  2. Yeah your from England you also think the book 1894 is a guidebook on better governmental practices and don’t have a problem with the fact that your country is being taken over by angry Islamists that hate your guts and what to enslave you.

    Yeah I saw all the videos of your cops running away when they were attacked by Muslim protesters the other day, isn’t it their job to stop and arrest violent protester? Then to top it all off your entire Parliament pooped it’s pants at the idea that Geert Wilders might be allowed to show a little film and banned him from the country. It was funny.

    My question to you is are you guys trying to turn yourselves into a third world country run by a police state that doesn’t even try to stop roving bands of angry terrorists or are you guys just not paying any attention?

    Try here and here. It’s fun reading.

  3. Re: “Obama is the best thing to happen to America and the Western World in a very very long time”

    Okay, sure.

    So, according to your sobjective analysis, what are/were the second and third best things to happen to America and the Western World in a very very long time?

  4. BTW, Futile,

    In case your answer is “buggery and infanticide”, please keep in mind that those are actually very ancient practices.

    Re: “In a leaked memo to Bush, written by Alberto Gonzales before the invasion of Iraq in which over a million people have died, he says that the President should try to get round the Geneva convention, because it would “substantially reduces the likelihood of prosecution under the War Crimes Act.” So it became easy to torture a new set of prisoners who were not covered by the Geneva Convention, because they were not called “Prisoners of War“; Bush’s team created the term “enemy combatants” and shipped them off to Guantanamo”

    http://futiledemocracy.com/2009/03/20/special-olympicsgate/

    1. Could you please tell me which Geneva Convention you are referring to.

    2. Don’t the Geneva Conventions give the US, the UK, Canada, France. the Neterlands etc. the right to just shoot the people who were mercifully transferred to Club Gitmo?

    3. Didn’t that memo refer to the NATO vs Afghanistan conflict of 2001-2002, and not to Iraq in 2003?

    4. By “enemy combatants” are you in fact referring to the 67-year old American legal term “unlawful enemy combatants” established in Ex parte Quirin, 317 U.S. 1 (1942, Supreme Court of the United States); which case upheld the jurisdiction of a United States military tribunal over the trial of German saboteurs, and which was the Democratic administration’s justification for the trials and executions of the afore-mentioned unlawful enemy combatants”?

    That decision states:

    “The law of war draws a distinction between the armed forces and the peaceful populations of belligerent nations and also between those who are lawful and unlawful combatants. Lawful combatants are subject to capture and detention as prisoners of war by opposing military forces. Unlawful combatants are likewise subject to capture and detention, but in addition they are subject to trial and punishment by military tribunals for acts which render their belligerency unlawful. The spy who secretly and without uniform passes the military lines of a belligerent in time of war, seeking to gather military information and communicate it to the enemy, or an enemy combatant who without uniform comes secretly through the lines for the purpose of waging war by destruction of life or property, are familiar examples of belligerents who are generally deemed not to be entitled to the status of prisoners of war, but to be offenders against the law of war subject to trial and punishment by military tribunals.”

    5. Surely you are aware that the practice of “Renditioning” was introduced by Clinton and is being upheld, continued and defended by Obama?

    6. How on Earth can somebody make so many factual errors in the course of one short paragraph? That is a staggering achievement! Keeping in mind your cavalier attitude towards handicapped people, do you in fact come from a long line of mental retards or have you somehow lowered your cerebral faculties by a steady regimen of self-abuse and brainwashing?

  5. Futile:

    “I’m all for giving Ireland back to the Irish”

    http://futiledemocracy.com/2009/03/12/the-conflict-returns/

    I’m afraid you’ve lost me. Where is this Ireland yo speak of that is not ruled according to the wishes of the residents?

    Perhaps, yet again, you are confused.

    Please allow me to enlighten you:

    The constitutional status of Northern Ireland & The Republic of Ireland

    The Irish people of Northern Ireland exercised their right, under Article 12 of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, to not be part of King George V’s Irish Free State.

    1. Irish Republic proclaimed 21 January 1919.

    2. Southern Ireland, a de jure autonomous region of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, established 3 May 1921 under the Government of Ireland Act 1920.

    3. The Irish Free State Dominion [Saorstát Éireann] established 6 December 1922 under the Anglo-Irish Treaty (signed by Irish representatives 6 December 1921); replacing both the Provisional Government of Southern Ireland and the Government of the Irish Republic .

    4. The Irish People of Northern Ireland, on 7 December 1922, exercising their constitutional rights under Article 12 of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, presented the following address to George V, King of The Irish Free State:

    “MOST GRACIOUS SOVEREIGN, We, your Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Senators and Commons of Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, having learnt of the passing of the Irish Free State Constitution Act, 1922, being the Act of Parliament for the ratification of the Articles of Agreement for a Treaty between Great Britain and Ireland, do, by this humble Address, pray your Majesty that the powers of the Parliament and Government of the Irish Free State shall no longer extend to Northern Ireland.”

    5. On 13 December 1922, George V, King of Ireland, granted the people of Northern Ireland their liberty:

    “I have received the Address presented to me by both Houses of the Parliament of Northern Ireland in pursuance of Article 12 of the Articles of Agreement set forth in the Schedule to the Irish Free State (Agreement) Act, 1922, and of Section 5 of the Irish Free State Constitution Act, 1922, and I have caused my Ministers and the Irish Free State Government to be so informed.”

    6. In 1936 George VI was declared “King of Ireland”, and in The Irish Free State’s External Relations Act of 1936, the Dublin government empowered Ireland’s King George VI to represent the state in its foreign affairs. King George VI, as Head of State of the Irish Free State signed treaties as The King of Ireland, accredited ambassadors to Dublin, and received letters of credence from foreign diplomats.

    7. The Irish Free State was abolished on 29 December 1937, with the enactment of the presumptuous Constitution of so-called “Ireland” [Bunreacht na hÉireann].

    8. In 1949, the state presuming to call itself “Ireland” officially declared that it could henceforth describe itself as a republic.

  6. “By the way, when Obama’s unlikely gift was disclosed, a reader emailed me to ask if Clueless was among the films. Funnily enough, it was not.””

    What about ‘He’s just not that into you’, thank you Mark Steyn.

    “…but the Middle East can barley be considered civilization so it doesn’t count.”

    Ain’t that the truth.

    I doubt they’ll be able to accidentally nuke us all, i’m sure when they built those icbms and all that, they catered for, what if a moron were elected to the white house.
