Rome is Burning; Obama Fiddles at The View

September 26, 2012 at 5:00 am / by
 

Last week Obama turned down a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu citing a “scheduling conflict”. Certainly that’s understandable. The leader of the free world has lots of commitments. With the economy upside down, the Middle East exploding in riots and gas/energy prices adding extreme strains to families across the nation there are a lot of issues the President must address.  Of course he’s busy! But rather then showing the American people he is committed to putting out some of these fires by, oh say showing up for his daily security briefings (or meeting with the burdened leader of our closest ally), Obama showed up at The View with his fiddle for a good, old-fashioned hoedown (no pun intended).  Scheduling conflict? More like campaign stop. Which, during better times might be acceptable but in the current global meltdown we are experiencing it is inexcusable.

Let’s keep in mind just who exactly is watching The View:  Women.  Love it or hate it The View has become a ratings powerhouse for women in the coveted 18-49 demographic. When you want to reach a lot of women viewers/voters/consumers it makes sense to go there.  Obama is struggling to reach the same women voters he swept in 2008. The Democrat-manufactured “war on women” has spectacularly backfired and Mrs. Obama has an “image” issue. Watching the First Lady take luxury vacations one after another to the tune of millions of taxpayer dollars–hasn’t done much to endear her or her family to the women of America who must make the choice between groceries and bills on a daily basis. Obviously Mr. Obama’s team thinks shoring up the female vote is more important than hearing out the leader of an ally country that stands on the precipice of annihilation each and every day.

What his team most certainly does not understand is that we women aren’t concerned in the least with Obama’s eye-candy status. Indeed, it’s hard to look at a man as “attractive” when he has done so little to improve our daily existence.

You see, Mr. President, we don’t need or care for an Entertainer-in-Chief. Your appearance on the talk show circuits, while everything goes to hell around us, is not endearing.  It’s maddening.  We’re angry. And it’s not because we don’t get to see you enough on TV. We’re angry because many of us have been forced to spend our children’s college funds and inheritances just to stay afloat in your crappy economy.

We’re angry that gas is averaging nearly $4/gal while you continue to block drilling on our own soil and force industry-killing regulation on coal plants that provide the majority of our affordable energy.

We’re angry that you keep blathering on and on about how we need to “pay our fair share”. So many of us who would rather be home raising our children have been forced take on more employment for less pay, leaving our children in the care of others while we struggle pay our increasingly less-than fair share. Is it fair that we have to leave our families to work harder and harder while you golf? What is fair about condemning our children to a future of debt and decline? Most women in America don’t want handouts or special treatment. Our definition of a successful government is one that operates within its means, just like we are forced to in our own homes. If you want to reassure women that you are working for them I suggest you spend less time with Whoopi and Letterman and more time forming policies that release the shackles on our economy.

Ask any woman with children in the country what she is most concerned about and she will most likely answer, “My family”. Your appearances on talk shows, Mr. President, do nothing to comfort us about the future of our families. We are living daily in fear of what the future will hold for our children. We are cutting back comforts and necessities. We are struggling with our grocery and gas budgets, work and school schedules. We are watching international news with terror. We need help, not giggle-fests with Joy Behar!

What the Obamas don’t seem to understand is that women watch television for entertainment, not because we’re stupid. Even those among us who voted for Obama in 2008 have been subjected to the realities of “hope and change”. When we mothers see images of murdered Americans like Brian Terry and Chris Stevens, we think of our own children and we don’t want a President who ignores the tragic deaths of American citizens or apologizes for our national values!  Obama is gravely mistaken if he believes a spin on the entertainment circuit is enough to make us forget the realty of our lives in this moment.

We can’t forget.  We won’t forget come November.

Rome is burning, sir. Play your fiddle if you must; we’ll be there to cut your strings on November 6th. Be prepared.

    as long as you’re living in a fantasy world, might as well be on entertainment TV shows? I wonder if he realizes that he would gain more voters by making some real tough decisions to solve these many problems rather than these “fluff” TV show appearances? And to stop apologizing for America?

    • Jacquie

      He is to timid to make real decisions. We need a Commander in Chief that has a pair and not worried about how he he ‘appears’ to his voters. GAIN A PAIR!

    Excellent first article for PolitiChicks.tv, Kira! Someone commented on my FB page, “That chick is pissed off!” Lol–in this political climate, that is exactly what all of us should be. Well done!

    I must say this post say what I have been saying for some time.
    America please wake up.
    I challenge one of our reporters that service these debates to ask this one question
    Mr President
    Why haven’t you afforded the American people with the truth.
    Why haven’t you show your collage transcripts and your theses.
    Why haven’t you show a raised seal Birth certificate.
    I would be proud to show these why aren’t you.

    Who ever asked him this question would be a national hero over night. There
    would be dancing in the streets.
    He could not answer this and would put an end to this sham he has put over on
    America

    “Walking Eagle”

    President BARACK OBAMA was invited to address
    a major gathering of the American Indian Nation
    in upstate New York
    .

    He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for
    increasing every Native American’s present
    standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator
    and how he had voted for every Native American issue that
    came to the floor of the Senate.

    Although President Obama was vague about
    the details of his plans, he seemed most
    enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about
    his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”

    At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes
    presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with
    his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.”

    The proud President Obama accepted the plaque
    and then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser,
    waving to the crowds.

    A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs
    how they came to select the new name they had
    given to the President. They explained that “Walking
    Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of do do
    it can no longer fly.
