‘Stand by the Man’ dressed in the tighty whities

Huma Abedin, aka Mrs. Anthony Weiner, has dropped off the map for a few days.

Apparently Huma, embarrassed wife of the seriously disturbed New York congressman, has been squirreled away somewhere seeking marriage counseling from mother Hillary.

Could it be that the distraught Mrs. Weiner hasn’t changed out of sweatpants and flip-flops for days, while trying to makes sense of how “Tony-the-Twitter Tiger” could humiliate her this way?

Hillary, a pro at dealing with betrayal issues, has agreed to take a few days out of her busy schedule to selflessly dedicate herself to helping her personal assistant deal with the pain of rejection, humiliation, disappointment and the shock of seeing pictures of her husband’s manhood plastered all over the Internet.

Putting it all into perspective, it’s probable Hillary counseled  Huma that when weighing fidelity against political power – political power wins every time!

Chances are Madame Secretary has been coaching Weiner’s woman and explaining to her that riding through this type of trial is kind of like surfing a big wave in Hawaii weighed down by a polyester pants suit.  It’s a tad shaky at first, but once you get your footing,  its smooth sailing all the way through to a  Haiti Relief Fund appointment  for hubby and a high-level Cabinet position in a Democratic administration for wifey.

In between weepy hug sessions, to help Mrs. Weiner rebuild self-esteem, Hillary could have shared pointers such as repeating tried-and-true Stuart Smalley affirmations like: “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and doggone it people like me.”

Minnesota Senator Al Franken aside, it’s highly probable that after emptying the wastebasket of 4 or 5 boxes of Kleenex, and liberally applying a gallon of Vaseline to Huma’s red, peeled nose, Hillary knew that if her assistant was going to be there to tell her never to put that ridiculous  banana clip in her hair again, it was time to pull out the big guns.

Based on Hillary’s “Stand by Your Man” history the former first lady may have uncovered a secret weapon residing inside a wig box and on a sachet-scented hanger tucked within the dark recesses of her Chappaqua closet.  A weapon so powerful it may hold the key to getting Huma out of those sweat pants and back into a power suit.

Over the years, due to compulsive Slick Willy’s unmentionable relapses Hillary has maintained her steely composure, drawing strength from an unknown source, not once, but many times over. Nobody knows for certain, but Hillary may have carefully laid her treasure on the bed and told Huma she was about to be let in on something more confidential than the nuclear codes President Clinton lost while in office.

With that in mind, it’s not hard to imagine, Hillary reverently opening a circular box, carefully taking out a blond, 1960’s ash blonde wig and, like a crown, placing it on Huma’s raven colored head. Or, picturing the former first lady unzipping a garment bag, shaking out a pinkish/orangish sequined/tight-fitting sheath, and asking Huma to scurry off and shimmy into it.

It’s also easy to see Huma emerging from the bathroom, dressed in Hillary’s outfit, looking more relaxed, and despite her Saudi American heritage, strangely similar to country singer Tammy Wynette.

At that point, it’s not impossible to believe Hillary reassured Huma that she learned the hard way that when a powerful woman is forced to endure a husband whose hobby, rather than Bocce ball, is marital infidelity peace does not come by way of prayer, divorce proceedings, or from blaming Republicans for a cigar-smoking husband’s philandering ways, but from heading downstairs to the porch and quietly singing a song that holds clear directives for the future.

A song whose words, may  remind Hillary of  her innate ability to overlook Bill’s raunchy antics, of how much she loves the old slime ball, and how desperately a woman can desire  the title: ” Leader of the Free World”  not be tainted by perceptions of a womanly lack of forgiveness.

And so, in an effort to make short work of a long week,  Huma in a humongous blonde wig and a glittery  sequined dress may have also headed toward Hillary’s lonely porch and competed only with evening and the crickets given Mrs. Clinton’s 30-year long spurned woman ritual a Hillary-endorsed, “Stand by Your Man”-Mrs. Weiner whirl.

State of the Union Smoking Seminar

Watching Barack Obama’s first State of the Union address was like attending an anti-smoking seminar led by a spokesperson that takes intermittent smoke breaks. Obama chided, corrected and set out moral commands—none of which the President adheres to himself.

If followed in logical succession, the contradictions embodied in the State of Union were nothing less than stunning.  Obama treated America to seventy-one minutes of lies, half-truths, poor policy proposals and revisionist history, all things the nation has come to expect from our historic president.  Even more astonishing then the job bill, student loan and “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” propositions was the President’s incongruous statements addressing political etiquette.

Woven throughout his misleading and deluded statements Obama graduated to unprecedented heights of insincerity.   For all intents and purposes, Obama set about collecting Newports and Virginia Slims in the chamber and then left the emergency exit open where those who hesitantly relinquished cigarettes witnessed Barry toking filterless Camels.

Take for instance the absurdity of Obama calling on George W. Bush to assist the Haiti Relief Fund. In the Rose Garden and in a show of solidarity Obama portrayed a united front with his predecessor.  Yet, at the State of the Union, Obama lit up under the No Smoking sign and dragged out ole’ Georgie to serve as fall guy for year of presidential inadequacy.

In one breath, Obama appointed Bush half a presidential team to oversee Haiti relief. In the next breath, Barack depicted Bush as an inept “torturer” devoid of values, solely responsible for “… two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse and a government deeply in debt.”

Either Obama doesn’t recall what he says and does, or the President believes Americans lack the ability to draw a parallel between words and actions.

America should be reminded that Reverend Jeremiah Wright, an anti-Semite, racist preacher of the “Gospel” mentored Barack Obama. Barry spent twenty years at Oxymoronic University sitting under the tutelage of Right Reverend Wrong.  In the State of the Union homily Reverend Obama lectured on “peace and harmony,” then undermined the concepts in classic Trinity United Church of Christ-style.

Obama took repeated swats at Bush, the Senate, the Supreme Court and even members of Congress and then segwayed directly into chiding those who received presidential reproofs on how politicians should treat one and other.  Sorry, but one remark juxtaposed against the other reveals Obama’s state of mind borders on psychotic. Doesn’t Obama know that when teaching smoking cessation, you need to remove the nicotine patch before going out back to sneak in a couple of butts?  Overdosing on carcinogens has been proven to affect clear thinking.

For a decision upholding 1st amendment rights, the supposed Constitutional scholar openly chastised Supreme Court judges like unruly kindergarteners. Immediately following, the President steered the conversation toward righteous moralization. Barack subjected ensnared judges to “winner” statements like,  “We can’t wage a perpetual campaign where the only goal is to see who can get the most embarrassing headlines about the other side – a belief that if you lose, I win.”

“In the double bind there are two conflicting levels of communication and an injunction against commenting on the conflict.” Obama’s erratic statements are on par with a parent sending conflicting messages to schizophrenic offspring.

At the State of the Union, Obama repeatedly dragged out a bloody G.W. from behind the podium depicting Bush as irresponsible, thoughtless and negligent.  Obama strongly suggested America’s financial battle had its genesis in Bush’s, “recklessness that nearly brought down our entire economy.” Then, Obama followed up his critical statements with petitions for political unity,

Washington may think that saying anything about the other side, no matter how false, no matter how malicious, is just part of the game.  But it’s precisely such politics that has stopped either party from helping the American people.  Worse yet, it’s sowing further division among our citizens, further distrust in our government.

In the address Barack Obama also hinted at Bush’s indecency and weakness saying, “In this new decade, it’s time the American people get a government that matches their decency; that embodies their strength.” Obama implied Bush’s administration was both secretive and unaccountable saying, “…when we took that program [financial rescue program] over we made it more transparent and more accountable.” Can anyone say C-Span?

After mortifying Bush, and less than twenty-minutes later, Obama vowed to “start anew, to carry the dream forward, and to strengthen our union once more.”

Obama did not leave out of the tirade self-rewarding CEO’s, or bankers risking America’s future for what the pious president defines as “selfish gain.”  The president included lobbyists “gaming the system” and politicians, other than himself, who “tear each other down instead of lifting this country up.”

The “working to change the tone of politics” President shared that “Just saying no to everything may be good short-term politics, but it’s not leadership.  We were sent here to serve our citizens, not our ambitions.” [Ahem]. After rebuking the crowd, Obama urged the same lousy, self-serving, ruthless politicians to work with him to “show the American people that we can do it together.”

Obama spoke to “smokers” at the seminar and then borrowed a lighter, excusing himself from kicking a habit he refuses to shake. The truest statement Obama made, while fostering a State of Disunion was, “I don’t quit!”   America is choking because every time Obama speaks a duplicitous scolding follows, then the President inhales deeply and blows second-hand smoke straight into the nations’s face.

The sanctimonious spreader of “quit-it,” refuses to do what he demands from everyone else. Hey Barry, “No wonder there’s so much cynicism out there. No wonder there’s so much disappointment.”

Commander-in-Cheap – American Thinker Blog – January 22, 2010

“Everyday that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe – destruction and suffering that defies comprehension.”  The President isn’t talking about the first year of the Obama presidency, but rather the dire situation in distressed Haiti.

While introducing the Clinton/Bush Haiti Relief Fund Obama shared that the fund  is a conduit, “…into the incredible generosity, the ingenuity, [and] the can-do spirit of the American people in helping our neighbors in need. ”

Who better than Obama to discuss and represent American openhandedness and the spirit of giving?

In fact, in response to what Barack Obama described as, “deeply moving,” “heartbreaking images of devastation” the President and First Lady donated a whopping $15,000.00 to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Yes, a figure worth repeating, $15,000.00.   But then again, the Obama’s are not known altruistic benevolence when it comes to sharing the contents of the Obama joint bank account.

In previous comments concerning Haiti, the President implored Americans to give, saying, “Despite the fact that we are experiencing tough times here at home, I would encourage those Americans who want to support the urgent humanitarian efforts to go to whitehouse.gov where you can learn how to contribute.”

Maybe Obama is the one who needs to “learn how to contribute?”  According to CNN Money Barack Obama is worth 1.3 million and donated 1.5% or $15,000.00?  Is this how the President leads the American people to give to a relief effort?

Not to worry, the Obama family Hawaiian vacation fund is never in jeopardy of being depleted by causes like major earthquakes. Actually, according to historical records of charitable giving, a 1% contribution is not out of character for Barry and Michelle.  Just this week, Sam Stein of the Huffington Post outlined the First Couple’s giving record from 2000 through 2004.  During that period, the Obama’s earned about $300-thousand dollars a year, but gave no more than $3,500.00 or 1% of their annual income.

In 2005 that number jumped to $77,315 or 4.7% and in 2006 to $60,307, a rousing 6.1 percent.  During those poverty-stricken years, one righteous cause Obama deemed worthy was Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ.  Giving $27,000.00 to a racist, anti-Semitic pastor the President claimed he was unaware spewed hate speech.

The Obama’s also gave to causes such as the African Muntu Dance Theater and The Rochelle Lee Fund who sponsor Big Read programs in conjunction with the National Endowment for the Arts. Oh, and let’s not forget the $13,107.00 donation to the Congressional Black Caucus listed as a “charity gift.”

The Obama’s tax records indicate that, when it comes to “sharing the wealth” the couple fell short of the “Biblical 10% tithe.” Averaging $225-thousand dollars a year and giving $2,500.00 to charity, which by the way works out to $6.84 cents a day, from a President with zero compunction about picking the pockets of Americans who, no thanks to liberal policies, earn less and give more-is appalling.

As fortune would have it, the esteemed Nobel Peace Prize winner can redeem his tightfisted reputation by exhibiting munificence and bestowing the $1.4 million in Oslo prize money to the Haiti relief fund. Robert Gibbs did say, “The money would be donated to charity.” What could be a better cause to support?

Making a $1.4 million contribution would not only assist the devastated Haitians, but, in the process, such a bighearted gesture could also bolster the wilting President’s global reputation?
