Barack Obama the Train Wreck said that the United States (also known as “we”) “need to train more Americans.”
Obama prefaced his training shocker with an advisory to the Central Connecticut State University audience in New Britain, Connecticut: they needed to “bend [their] knees” so they don’t swoon (as people tend to do) while he’s speaking.
What kind of training does the president think Americans need?
The seemingly potty-trained backdrop audience who clapped like trained seals seemed very well trained. One thing he’s right about, though: training is definitely necessary if Obama wants people to cheer when he talks about job creation in a state with 7.9% unemployment.
Other than those sorts of things, Americans probably could be better ‘trained’ to be more obedient and less questioning. How about government-funded tutoring programs that “train” Americans to ignore the truth and simply swallow lies?
Even better, how about some sort of presidential commission to brainwash, er…train Americans to ignore what happened in Benghazi, forget about the IRS scandal, and praise Obamacare, even if they’re among the unfortunate six million who lost their health insurance?
How about ‘training’ Americans to embrace the prospect of all-encompassing NSA spying, applaud drone strikes on American citizens, enthusiastically relinquish our sovereignty, and give up our Second Amendment rights while arming drug cartels?
There needs to be an indoctrination program that can train Americans to think it’s a great idea to leave the borders open, use tax dollars to finance the first lady’s vacations, and fund the slaughter of the unborn.
Yes – more training for stuff like that.
Barack Obama has made it quite clear that, from where he sits, he and his cohort of trainers “need to train more Americans.”
The problem is, Obama wants to train “We the People” to be LESS American and be MORE Socialist, and a problematic document called the Constitution may get in the way.
Remember when Joe Lockhart, a senior strategist in John Kerry’s presidential campaign, said the Democrats “can swagger and chew gum at the same time?”
Well now it looks like those swaggering Democrat peaceniks plan to bomb Syria in an effort to prove their ability to multitask, and the gum they’ll be chewing is Nicorette.
That’s right – Barack Obama is hiking up his mom jeans, adjusting his bicycle helmet, and preparing to act all macho in order to get America to view him as something other than what he is: President Urkel.
And to assist in the effort, Urkel is asking Secretary of State John ‘Lurch’ Kerry to assist him. In fact, the Syrian situation has become so dire that to address the crisis, Secretary of State John Kerry has actually been forced to put down his Heinz ketchup and cancel his windsurfing plans.
According to China and President Bashar al-Assad’s ally Russia, community organizing rebels are the ones who staged the attack to make it look like the government did it in hopes of provoking intervention. Urkel and Lurch emphatically disagree…
On the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s establishment of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Barack Obama, the guy who’s done more to obstruct freedom than any American president in history, will be the one handing out the medals. Having Barack Obama dispense freedom medals is on par with Hitler lighting Shabbat candles or Bill Clinton hosting a couples’ seminar on the joys of marital fidelity.
Nonetheless, according to the White House website, the purpose of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the nation’s highest civilian honor, is to pay tribute to those who’ve made “meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”
President Obama had this to say about the Medal of Freedom:
The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours. This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world. It will be my honor to present them with a token of our nation’s gratitude.
The individuals due to receive the medal are supposedly selected by the president or recommended to him by the Distinguished Civilian Service Awards Board. Judging from the list, it’s easy to see that when choosing the 2013 recipients, Barack Obama was guided by his own personal opinion.
This year’s group is made up of the following luminaries: liberal politicians from the left-of-left wing to the just plain old RINO left wing; one liberal journalist, plus a Berkeley-schooled psychologist; a departed Obama-supporting female astronaut and a living Jimmy Carter-supporting coal miner’s daughter; a Cuban musician; a Berkeley-schooled Mexican scientist; a black athlete; a female Democrat judge; a deceased LGBT activist; and a couple of civil-rights leaders.
Although the group consists of many standouts, three in particular have Barack Obama’s fingerprints all over them, the first being former President Bill Clinton. If Bill Clinton deserves anything, it would be a medal for freeing the Oval Office from the confines of presidential dignity.
While Commander-in-Chief Clinton cavorted with a chubby intern, lied about it, perjured himself under oath, and was impeached, now that the “vast right-wing conspiracy” has been fully exposed, he’s one of 16 candidates for a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Barack Obama had to be behind giving Bill Clinton a medal. After all, what better way for the present occupant of the White House to make his sorry self look good than to give a medal to someone just as sorry?
Therefore, Bill Clinton deserves a Medal of Freedom for freeing Barack Obama from a future of indignity associated with being a God-awful president.
Then there’s feminist Gloria Steinem. How she got on the list is a Ms-tery. It must be because Obama respects Gloria for dedicating her life to America’s enrichment by fighting for the right to deprive children in the womb of the right to be born.
Seventy-nine-year-old Gloria proudly wears an “I had an abortion” T-shirt, openly boasting about aborting her own child who, had he or she lived, would be 57 years old today.
Ms. Steinem fondly reminisced about that abortion:
I used to sit and try and figure out how old the child would be, trying to make myself feel guilty. But I never could! … Speaking for myself, I knew it was the first time I had taken responsibility for my own life. I wasn’t going to let things happen to me. I was going to direct my life, and therefore it felt positive.
Who can argue with Obama choosing to give a medal to Steinem for being so cold, heartless, and self-serving that she makes a guy who believes in allowing babies born alive in botched abortions to die without warmth, hydration, or oxygen seem like a pillar of compassion?
Hence, Gloria Steinem deserves a Medal of Freedom for decades of freeing fetuses from the wombs of women who refuse to be deterred from directing their own self-absorbed lives.
Last but not least, we have Oprah Winfrey. Besides being a gazillionaire and a media magnate of gargantuan proportions (shh, don’t you say it), Oprah was one of Barry’s biggest supporters in 2008. She probably secretly credits herself for singlehandedly catapulting Barack Obama from the mean streets of Chicago into the family residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Among her many achievements, Oprah is an actress, broadcast journalist, and talk show host who, in a similar way to how Gloria Steinem’s dead baby was Gloria’s new lease on life, considered the untimely death of the newborn infant she delivered at 14 years old a “second chance.”
Oprah Winfrey deserves a Medal of Freedom, all right, but not for her varied accomplishments, nor for her outstanding ability to bring home the bacon. Rather, she should take a medal for involuntarily freeing her false eyelashes from her eyelids during Barack Obama’s 2008 acceptance speech in INVESCO Field.
Anyone who can be so moved by Barack Obama’s “transcendent” oratory that the salty droplets gushing from her tear ducts dissolves her eyelash glue and destroys a perfectly good set of Ardell Demi Lashes deserves a medal.
Couple the eyelash episode with being identified as Oprah, which sort of resembles the name Obama, and Winfrey may very well have shown up the other 15 recipients and earned herself not one, but two Medals of Freedom.
With the award ceremony months away, there’s still time for Commissioner of Liberty Barack Obama to hand out medals to a few more freedom-lovers.
Let’s see…how about Queen of Free Birth Control Sandra Fluke, MSNBC Head Lesbian Rachel Maddow, IRS official Lois Lerner, ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, and the no-longer-closeted basketball player/newly-christened homosexual icon, Jason Collins? Meanwhile, Barack Obama is probably trying to concoct a way to give one of those medals to his number-one choice — himself.

At a rodeo in Missouri, while attempting to have a little good natured fun at the expense of the Clown-in-Chief a rodeo entertainer emerged dressed up like a cowboy in an Obama mask.
Unfortunately for the clown there was an easily offended spectator in the stands watching the show.
Here’s liberal party-pooper Perry Beam’s account of what happened:
Just prior to the start of the bull riding event, one of the clowns came out dressed [in an Obama mask]. The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull. The crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time, whipping the audience into a lather. One of the clowns ran up and started bobbling the lips on the mask and the people went crazy.
Then, according to Mr. Beam, a bull charged the clown, forcing him to run away “to the delight of the onlookers hooting and hollering from the stands.”
Totally aghast, Mr. Beam, his wife Lily, and a Taiwanese boy the couple took along to the show, “left quickly and quietly. Beam rushed home to post his experience on the liberal blog Show Me Progress.
Clearly shaken by the Obama clown, Beam shared:
“Lily’s student is an inquisitive boy and asks a lot of questions about what he sees, and though he had never been to a rodeo he asked nothing about it, nor anything about America this time. We rode the sixty miles home in silence. In a way I’m glad. I had no answers for him.”
“I felt like I was at a Klan rally,” Beam told the website Raw Story. “This isn’t a Republican state fair. I want to write the governor and the fair board, because I want my money back. This was shameful.”
In response, Missouri State Fair spokeswoman Kari Mergen is apologizing.
“The performance by one of the rodeo clowns at Saturday’s event was inappropriate and disrespectful,” said Mergen, “and does not reflect the opinions or standards of the Missouri State Fair. We strive to be a family friendly event and regret that Saturday’s rodeo badly missed that mark.”
So here’s how it goes: Obama the Clown is full of bull and America is required to endure the pain of it all. Then, when a clown imitates the real Obama, a liberal who likely would have laughed hysterically if the mask was of G.W. Bush or Sarah Palin has a hissy fit and the boot licking Missouri State Fair apologizes.
Thankfully for the easily insulted Beam contingency, the offensive incident has been properly dealt with.
Now Mr. Beam and his lovely bride Lily can move along from the Obama rodeo clown to schooling their little Taiwanese charge on things like Benghazi, the IRS scandal and the NSA spying on American citizens.
Support the Obama rodeo clown, buy an Obama mask & wear it everywhere you go. In addition to being fun, as added benefit you get to irritate an obnoxious liberal for just $6.99.

America found out in a probing CBS interview with “Early Show” co-anchor Harry Smith an interesting fact: Barack Obama is a southpaw. Yes, the lefty president is “left-handed.” Barry claims, of course, to be ambidextrous when on the basketball court, able to make jump shots from both the right and the left.
Smith joined Obama on the hot blacktop, commenting on his smooth moves. Following the agile Obama around the court, the “Early Show” co-anchor acknowledged Barack’s natural tendency to go left, but queried the sprightly president with extremely controversial questions like, “Can you ever go right?” Obama’s response provided a glimpse into his honest nature, which this time was couched in a smirky reply: “I can go to my right, but I prefer my left.” Ya think?
After failing to make his famous jump shot, Obama’s excused himself, claiming, “You know, I’ve got a few other things on my mind.” After which a determined Mr. Obama successfully accomplished the jump shot. “Its like health care. I always come from behind — I finish strong.”
It figures: Barry is involved in a solitary game concerned only with accomplishing individual policy goals. Obama plays politics as he plays basketball, and he makes jump shots from the left. If he misses, he shoots from the left until rebounding from legislative fouls, with a finish he himself perceives as “strong.”
Harry Smith pressed in hard on Obama in the journalistic one-on-one strolling and asking the president if he’s “aware of the extreme terms some use to describe him, such as a socialist or Nazi[.]”
Well, I think that when you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, it’s pretty apparent, and it’s troublesome, but keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out.
Was the president admitting to Harry that between 12:00 noon and 3:00 pm, he tunes in to EIB’s Maha Rushie? Does Obama catch Glenn Beck on Fox News? Why would a former college professor be bothered by intellectual curiosity, well-researched documentation, and freedom of speech? And why hasn’t Obama called Beck on the red telephone to address the troublesome vitriol? And what of his own comments urging supporters to “get in their faces” with ObamaCare critics?
Casually conversing with Smith, Mr. Obama explained away opposition, saying, “It happens often when you’ve got an economy that is making people more anxious, and … feeling like there is a lot of change that needs to take place.” Referencing the trusty “change” catchphrase, Obama excused himself, choosing to continue to shoot from the left.
While a majority of Americans disapprove of the job Obama’s doing, playing hoops with his own shadow, Obama maintained, “But that’s not the vast majority of Americans.” Dribbling as he went along, Barack Obama put words in the mouth of Americans with the same vigor with which he endorsed the unpopular health care reform bill
On-the-job training trumps experience because “trying and wanting” made Obama a star on the basketball court. Unashamed Obama extended similar sentiments to the Executive Office, telling Harry Smith, “I think the vast majority of Americans know that we’re trying hard [and] that I want what’s best for the country.”
The same Obama that willingly accepted the Democrat nomination astride two Greek Ionic columns at INVESCO Field attempted to convince Smith he didn’t “buy all the hype, right after inauguration, where everybody was only saying nice things about me.” The president tenaciously shot and reshot the basketball toward the hoop, finally adding, “And I don’t get too worried when things aren’t going as well because I know that over time, these things turn.” And with Barack Obama, rest assured that the “turn” will always be to the left.
