Barack Obama and the Four-Year-Old, Dorset, Minnesota Mayor

tuftsOriginally posted at Clash Daily

Ever since Barack Obama became president, the trend to elect unprepared, inexperienced leaders has been catching on.  Case in point: the mayor of Dorset, Minnesota is four-year-old Robert “Bobby” Tufts.  Amazingly, Bobby was three years old when he first ran for mayor and won the election.

After all, Barack Obama is currently administrating America.  That’s why fedora-wearing Bobby, who is intellectually, politically, and experientially on par with the preschooler occupying the White House, is more than qualified to assume the mayoralty of a small town in Minnesota.

For the record, Dorset is home to only 22-28 residents, but populace, or lack thereof, is not the point.  The point is that Barack Obama has set the tone, and since his emergence on the political scene, toddler-types with political aspirations can now have confidence that if they run for political office, they too can win. That’s what happened with Bobby Tufts: he emulated Barack Obama, ran for an office he was unqualified for, and won!

Now that both guys are on the job we can see that Bobby and Barry have similar attributes: Bobby likes ice cream and fishing, Barry enjoys shave ice and pick-pocketing American taxpayers.

After one year in office, like Barry, Bobby is now planning to run for a second term. In Dorset, voting takes place at the Taste of Dorset Festival.  Here’s how it works:  mimicking the voting practices currently taking place around America, money and multiple votes are key.

Remember when Barack Obama, armed with lots of money, paid ACORN workers to ensure Obama supporters voted multiple times, even if they were dead?  Well, in Dorset, names are thrown into a hat, and for $1 a ballot, people can vote as many times as they want.

Much like Obama, who pulled the strings during the last two elections, as mayor, Bobby will be the one pulling the name out of the hat at this year’s Taste of Dorset Festival and hopes the name he pulls will be his own.

Despite his inexperience, youth and spoof-like stint in office, whenever he’s spotted walking around town eating ice cream, residents greet Bobby with shouts of “Mr. Mayor.”

Like Barry, Bobby is his own best advocate and is constantly about the business of campaigning.   One side of the promotional card he hands out shows Bobby, who loves fishing as much as Obama loves golfing, decked out with a tan fishing vest over a suit jacket. The other side of the card shows Bobby sitting in a porch swing with his girlfriend, Sophie, who looks nothing like Michelle Obama.

The card reads, “I would love to be your Mayor as much as I love Sophie”; that sentiment is reminiscent of Obama, who loves being president almost as much as he loves himself.

Bobby, like Obama, doesn’t do much except greet visitors who come to Dorset, a northern Minnesota lake town known for resorts, tourism, and restaurants. So, in other words, for those on vacation, Bobby, like President Barry, who also is well-schooled in vacationing, meets and greets people; and other than that does little else.

Oh, wait! Even after the election, Barry is still continually fundraising. In like manner, Bobby enjoys raising money for Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley in Fargo, N.D.

Barack Obama has already set the standard – holding public office doesn’t necessarily mean accomplishing much. Yet, in the realm of completing election objectives, Bobby Tufts has managed to far outweigh Barack Obama. How? Well, little Bobby managed to make ice cream the top of the food pyramid in Dorset. Among Mayor Tufts’ stated favorite flavors are “Chocolate. And vanilla. Strawberry. Cotton candy,” and the always politically correct, “rainbow sherbet.”

In the position for a year now, Emma Tufts, Bobby’s mom, sounding a lot like a besotted Obama supporter in denial, shared that she believes “he’s doing a fine job.”

What’s the opinion of other supporters? Well, because the description could apply to either politician, it’s unclear whether Hubbard County Sheriff Cory Aukes was referring to Bobby Tufts or Barack Obama when he said the following: “I think he’s a cute little bugger and I think a lot of people share the same, you know, opinion as me, and it’s neat. You know, how often do you see a little kid like that who’s – call `em camera-friendly or whatever, you know – he’s got a very good little personality, and he’s not afraid to show it. So I think it’s great.”

If it’s Bobby the sheriff is talking about, then kudos to Barack Obama, who’s accomplished little besides opening the door for other “cute little buggers” with similar abilities and interests to embark on a future in politics.

Which means that, thanks to America’s seriously stunted president, there is now a way for other “camera friendly or whatever” preschoolers like himself to rise to the level of world leader after having their name pulled out of a hat.

Obama Raffle: Dinner with Mr. Lonely

Originally posted at BIG Government

During Bibi Netanyahu’s 2010 visit to the White House, in the middle of a tense settlement concession conversation an irritated Obama left Mr. Netanyahu sitting in a room to rush upstairs for din-din with Shelley and the girls. Abruptly walking out of the room, the President said “Let me know if there is anything new.”  Either the Israeli Prime Minister was being officially dissed, or Michelle refuses to tolerate any excuse for Barack showing up late for dinner

However, in the future, should the Prime Minister desire another sit-down with the President of the United States, he’ll have the option of purchasing a roll of tickets for the “Sometime soon, can we meet for dinner/Reelect Barack Obama” raffle.

Before the “Sometime Soon, Can We Meet For Dinner?” initiative, Netanyahu didn’t stand a chance in hell of getting Barack to sit through an entire conversation.  Now, at least Bibi has as much opportunity as anyone else willing to contribute five bucks.

Now, if by chance Bibi’s ticket is pulled out of the spinning drum, Obama, albeit under duress, will be obliged to endure eating blintzes and can no longer escape a Jerusalem settlement discussion using dinner getting cold as an excuse.

The President of the United States selling dinner raffle tickets may indicate that the man is forlorn and in need of genuine companionship. Begging to be shown love by the people who just three years ago were showering him with confetti and weeping at the mere mention of his name, frankly, is both “creepy” and pathetic.

Barack Obama’s dine-with-me/love-me idea started when the 2012 reelection campaign sent out an email with this subject line: “Sometime soon, can we meet for dinner?” Why would an American president ask such an unusual question? Obviously, to goad supporters into donating money in hopes of winning face time with Mr. Lonely.

The email also says, “So whenever I can, I want to take the opportunity to meet you.” Wouldn’t a message like that coming from anyone besides the President alert Americans trained to be careful online that it may be time to call in the authorities?

Nevertheless, Obama’s endearing words reminded voters that he and they are more than just political allies.  The President said “Supporters like you are reason I’m here, and that the values we share have always made our organization more than just a political campaign.”

Honestly, the President’s fundraising/supper-with-a-supporter email was more like an awkward love letter than a powerful politician’s solicitation for money.

That aside, winning benefactors will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience what Bibi Netanyahu was denied, which is to enjoy dinner and a chat with Barack Obama and be thanked “in person,” something a former Democrat president, who shall remain nameless, provided for free.

In addition, the email updated constituents on Obama’s summer meeting with volunteers from around the nation, which could be liberal code for ACORN workers and Black Panther poll watchers.  The online correspondence also expressed the President’s heartfelt desire “to talk one on one with the people…taking ownership of [the] campaign and [to] connect with the work going on every day in neighborhoods across the country.”

Try as he might to disguise it, Barack sounded as if the real reason for the odd fundraising style, besides being starved for the cheering displays of adoration that he’s become accustomed to, might be that the President is unable to pry himself away from his love of community organizing.

If Barry really wants to inspire community involvement, for an extra $2 the President could suggest a secondary raffle for a chance to win his very own well-worn, personally autographed copy of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

Moreover, and not to be overly critical, but based on some of the high class dinners Barry has treated friends to in the past, like the time he took Dmitry Medvedev to Ray’s Hell Burger, the $5 may not go directly into the campaign coffers – but could be used to cover the cost of the date.

Let’s remember, the President has tried the raffle thing before, but from the looks of the polls, even enjoying a Ray’s B.I.G. Poppa with Big Poppa doesn’t seem to be turning things around. Even still, Obama said he wants to “keep doing these dinners throughout the campaign.” With the economy in the tank and the line at the unemployment office getting longer every day, and with more and more fast food restaurants taking food stamps, should the President of the United States really be spending time supping with sycophants like the Obama Girl?

In the end, history has proven that dining with the Prime Minister of Israel holds little sway in Obama’s world.  Instead, it’s things like raffle dinners that sets Obama’s campaign apart, because he believes “dinners like these are how [he] will continue to put people at the heart of [his] campaign — and prove that [he doesn’t] need checks from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PAC money to win an election.”

However, what Obama does “need” are $5 donations squeezed out of inexplicably loyal supporters who otherwise don’t have two nickels to rub together.

Couple the dine-with-me email with Obama imploring cheering crowds in North Carolina to prove their love for him by passing his jobs bill, and the whole sorry state of affairs gets even more peculiar.  Crying out for dinner dates and hollering “If you love me, you got [sic] to help me pass this bill,” is either pure desperation, unbridled narcissism, or both, sending the situation from the realm of the strange into the annals of the absurd

However, there’s always a bright side. The next time Bibi Netanyahu is in a room with Obama and the conversation morphs into a “hazing in stages,” the Prime Minister knows he can distract Barry from stomping off to dinner by changing the subject and proposing an idea for yet another raffle, where for just 50 cents unlimited winners get to give America’s love-deprived President a big smooch.

Census Bureau Boondoggle – American Thinker – May 25, 2010

Originally posted at American Thinker Blog

Government is promoting itself as capable of overseeing the health care of 300 million American citizens.  Yet, when following up on 68% of unreturned census forms, from America’s 105 million households, the incompetent federal bureaucracy sent out sex offenders to ring doorbells.

That’s right, a registered sex offender was set loose in the Garden State and children, susceptible women and teenage girls were opening the door for a representative from the federal government, by way of the Sex Offenders Registry.

Frank Kuni, a sexual predator from the state of New Jersey “used an alias to get a job as a census taker” and due to the shoddy screening procedure of another government agency, Frank was given a badge, a clipboard and a list of residences occupied by lots of defenseless little girls.

Using an alias, Kuni passed a preliminary background check and completed four days of training. He visited several residences in Pennsauken … including the home of a woman who recognized him from the state’s sex offender Internet registry and called police.

In a separate case in Indiana, volunteer census worker Daniel Miller “allegedly raped and beat a 21-year-old physically handicapped woman after returning to her home in the middle of the night following an interview earlier in the day.”

Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala) said, “It is inconceivable that the Census Bureau could be so poorly managed as to hire a convicted sex offender to go door-to-door to collect personal information.” Shelby, in a letter to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said, “Clearly, Mr. Secretary, your guidelines are not working.”

According to Shelby, “The Census Bureau spent $2.5 million on a Super Bowl advertisement, to encourage participation in the Census to open their doors to Census workers.”

The 2010 Census web page says, “Welcome your census worker. Open your door to our future.”  The website presents the following question, “Do I have to talk to the census taker? Yes. Your participation in the 2010 Census is vital and required by law, (Section 221, of Title 13 of the U.S. Code).”

Is it still against the law to deny entry to a census worker recently released from the local penitentiary?

Based on government encouragement, doors swung open in New Jersey and were kicked open in Indiana. Shelby wrote, “What is even more objectionable is that it does not appear from public statements…that the Census Bureau admits fault or even acknowledges that their screening procedures are not working.”

The Census Bureau must take cues from the eternally unfaultable Barack Obama.

Actually, Frank Kuni may have been the logical choice to approach neighborhood folk.  Especially if the sex offender presented himself, at the interview, as a people person, someone who enjoys all kinds of people — perfect for door-to-door canvassing.

Based on similar criteria, the federal government might have found a workable formula for employing the previously unemployable.

Paroled embezzlers and bank robbers could be given jobs in the financial district. People with eating disorders could be short order cooks and IV drug abusers phlebotomists. No one can locate a vein like a heroin addict.

All kidding aside, loosing convicted sex offenders to roam free in neighborhoods, scoping out homes and potential victims is unconscionable.  The only reason Kuni was apprehended was because an alert citizen did what the government failed to do, recognize a criminal from an Internet registry.

Richard Shelby said the government’s “lack of adequate oversight is unacceptable.” Agreed, but one can’t help but wonder what the Alabama Senator will say, six months after health care is instituted, when its revealed ACORN workers have been busy doing appendectomies.

“Narco” “Acorn” Its All the Same in Some States

acornWhen Hillary was quoted as calling Afghanistan a “Narco” state I think there was a misinterpretation and she really meant to say that Illinois was an “Acorn” state.
