The Mocker In Chief Forgets He Lives In A Glass House *Open Thread*


President Obama is at it again. His recent comments at a recent fundraiser mocking GOP Presidential hopefuls trying to depict them as weak and whiners are a hoot to the Democrats. If you are so inclined, you can watch it here:

But here is the lesson Obama constantly forgets: people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Oh, and they shouldn’t forget there is video, either. Let’s just begin with Obama’s choice of a Russian leader as an example of “talking tough.” Really? Clearly Obama has forgotten this little tidbit caught on video:

Uh huh. Way to show Russia who’s boss there, Obama! Never mind ALL that has transpired with Putin over the last few years – taking over part of Ukraine, going into Syria, and more. Yep – Obama was REAL strong there – not.

Specifically regarding debates, though, since Obama sought to make a mockery of Republicans after a debate by CNBC that was widely decried by Republicans and Democrats alike, comes a reminder from Ben Carson. Breitbart has the story:

[…] “That wouldn’t happen to be the same President Obama who was afraid to go on Fox, would it?” Carson said with a laugh, during an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily.

“Must be a different guy,” said Carson, who recently topped a NBC News/WSJ poll. “That’s just ridiculous,” he added.

Late Monday, Obama taunted the GOP candidates for withdrawing from the planned NBC debate. “They say, ‘When I talk to [Russian president Vladimir] Putin, he’s going to straighten out’ … and then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators,” Obama scoffed.

Carson dismissed Obama’s heckle. “I think [there’s] universal accord on the idea that CNBC was way off base with that [October] debate.” Carson said.

“Do you face the problem head-on? I believe in facing problems head-on,” he added, referring to the collective decision by GOP candidates to withdraw from NBC’s planned debate. NBC is the parent company of CNBC. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Clearly it must have been a “different guy” who downright REFUSED to show up at a debate by Fox. The GOP routinely show up for debates hosted by networks with a known bias against them. And Obama chooses to make fun of THEM??

Take a look in the mirror, Mr. President. Your mockery of Republicans says way more about you than it does them. Like how hypocritical you are, how thin-skinned, how duplicitous, and how arrogant. And Carson highlights how cowardly you are by not showing up on Fox when you had the opportunity to do so.

And Branco from Legal Insurrection sums up the “glass house” problem for Obama with this cartoon perfectly:

And there you have it.

There is more going on, and you can feel free to talk about the above or whatever else is on your minds. But since I am dealing with a major arthritic flare-up in my right hand/wrist, this is it for me So have at it – this is an Open Thread.

      So it seems, Helen. And thanks for posting the results of so many elections across the country. KY and VA are HUGE, and karma – along with the SF voters – took care of the Sanctuary Sheriff…

  2. kenoshamarge Says:

    Great minds again Rev. I have a post over at NQ that mocks Obama for mocking the GOP candidates. And here’s a cartoon is used in that piece:

  3. kenoshamarge Says:

    And once again Branco captures the essence of Obama’s hypocrisy. Not to mention his obsession with FOX.

  4. kenoshamarge Says:

    I think this image captures Obama perfectly:

    stolen from the crawdad hole

    cold anger

    my father in law used to tell my kids, If your mother yells you are ok. if she tells you quietly to do somehting move

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      That’s funny Helen. I am much the same. All sound and fury most of the time. Then when I get really angry… Lou says if I have expressed anger about something and said it slowly and quietly he quickly finds an excuse to be somewhere else.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Good one, Helen. And no kidding – the people are speaking abd what we are saying is the exact opposite of what the Dems/MSM are pushing. That gives me HOPE!!

        And LOL abt saying things quietly – yep! 🙂

    Great toons Guys thanks.

    yesterday I had this off the wall thought. now I am not too sure it was crazy.

    first we had fast and furious that armed the cartels
    then we have open borders that make the movement of drugs into the country much easier
    now we let the drug dealers out of jail
    does anyone else wonder if backtrack is getting money from the cartels?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Not off the wall at all, Helen. There seems to be no depths to which Obama won’t sink…

  10. helenk3 Says:

    backtrack sending jets to syria intended for air to air combat only


    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Gee, what could possibly precipitate that, huh? SMH…

      • helenk3 Says:

        want a really crazy thought? start a major war, be like Franklin Roosevelt and get a third term. I know that is no longer legal, but when has that ever stopped backtrack?

  11. helenk3 Says:

    this is a teacher that I would want to teach my grandkids

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Isn’t that rant fantastic?? That is the kind of professor our universities/colleges need!

  12. helenk3 Says:

    meeeshelle whining again. USA was not good to her as a child she tells Quatar.

    wonder how happy she would be living in Iran or Saudi Arabia. Can not think of a better place for her

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Can anyone think of ANY first Lady that has ever disgraced this country like this POS? She goes to another country, and Muslim country where women are simply possessions and complains, again, about how poor little FLOTUS was treated. She’s a disgusting, whiny,______________, fill in the blank.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Good grief. What a schmuck. Seriously – she has benefited tremendously in this country, having gotten an Ivy League education at TWO different Ivy League schools. For her to whine and complain abt how tough her life has been when she is now the FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES is just a tad ungrateful for all this nation has done. WOW.

  13. helenk3 Says:

    need to brag a little.
    My youngest grand daughter just donated over 10 inches of her hair to make wigs for cancer patients.
    My oldest daughter did the same thing several months ago.

    My kids make me proud they are so kind and generous and always think about other people

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      How wonderful. You have every right to be proud. They are kind and generous and giving. As Mom and Grandma you had a hand in that so you should be proud of yourself too. I’m proud to know you.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      That is just wonderful, Helen! And you do deserve to brag abt that! Some of my nieces have done the same thing. It is just such an incredible gift. Good for her for making this generous gift.

      Clearly, the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree! 🙂
