By Deciding To Do Nothing, Obama Actually Has Done Something

What is Obama doing?

No, I mean, "what" is he "doing"?  As in, is he doing anything?

The Middle East is in flames, our domestic energy production is hurting as oil prices rise, job creation is almost non-existent, the deficit and national debt are out of control, people are almost coming to blows at statehouses around the nation ....

Everything is falling apart, so what is he actually doing as to these present problems? 

Nothing.  Instead, he's Winning The Future, with a day off for President's Day:

There is something troublingly detached about this President.  I'll take Christopher Hitchen's assessment as to the indifference towards Libya, and apply it more broadly:
"Instead, and in the crucial and formative days in which revolutions are decided, we have had to endure the futile squawkings of a cuckoo clock."
But perhaps I am too parochial, and not smart enough to understand.  So I will defer to Judge Gladyis Kessler:
"Making a choice is an affirmative action, whether one decides to do something or not do something. They are two sides of the same coin. To pretend otherwise is to ignore reality."
By deciding to do nothing, Obama actually has done something.  And it's working great!

  1. Professor, you make it sound as if Obama has done nothing. He DID go to a Motown concert last night with fellow Democrat multimillionaires and billionaires. I mean, that's SOMETHING, isn't it?

  2. Too much of nothin' can make a man feel ill at ease
    One man's temper might rise, while the other man's temper might freeze.
    In the days of long confessions, we can not mock a soul
    When there's too much of nothin', no one has control.
    Say hello to Valerie, say hello to Marion,
    Send them all my salary, on the waters of oblivion.

    PP&M updated: no one having control except for maybe stoking chaos is Obama, and Valerie and Marion are unionized public employees and perhaps Dylan's ex-wives... Same same;)

  3. HHHmmm.... Soon, the terms "Nero" and "Obama" will be interchangeable... if they're not already.

  4. But he IS doing something, if you use the Gladys logic. He is thinking about the problem, and deciding to do nothing. Decision = action.

    Isn't that what dear Gladys wants us all to believe? It is looking more like a Brave New World every day.

  5. Obama runs the presidency like it was a college seminar and he's the BMOC dean. There are endless magic groups where cliches are spouted and nothing results. Obama likes to sit at the end of the table and suck up all the exaltation.
    He's surrounded by yes men who wouldn't give an opposing point of view if their life depended on it.

    We can see this in these propaganda videos and in the White House propaganda photos, some of the weirdest stuff around. Last night Jamie Foxx changed the lyrics to a Motown song to praise the Won...bizarro.

  6. And now we know the government can regulate everything we do or don't do. To bad the people cannot as easily regulate the government.

  7. He is community organizer by profession. Community organizers don't do anything.

    Even in his legislative roles, he was prone to "voting present" when he had any pressure on him to do something.

    The job of a community organizer is just to provoke others to "do things" . . . whether his followers, or their targets.

  8. "By deciding to do nothing, Obama actually has done something. And it's working great!"

    Yup. "Inaction" is an action, generated by a decision.

    Globalists, one worlders, sure have made a mess. For this reason I denominate them chaotics.

  9. This just in:

    The President will be getting around to leading the free world as soon as he watches the last episode of The Haney Project with Rush Limbaugh.

  10. Someone told him he is auditioning for a part in the remake of "Idiocracy".
