The Idiot Obama Speechwriter And Adviser *Open Thread*


Now that Obama’s term is coming to an end, his Administrative flaks are coming out of the woodwork saying one idiotic thing after another. No, I am not referring to Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, though I will be getting to him shortly. I am referring to head speechwriter, Jon Favreau.

Oh, you remember Favreau, don’t you? He was the punk kid who had never done anything but go to school who somehow became Obama’s speechwriter, then was elevated to Obama’s chief speechwriter, even after a photo was exposed showing him doing this after the coronation of King Obama:


Oh, yes. That’s Favreau. If I recall correctly, and I wrote a lot about this back in 2008, Clinton had already been named Secretary of State for Obama. And this chump on the left, Favreau, was still able to keep his job. I thought that spoke volumes.

As it turns out, as Bre Payton writes in The Federalist, Favreau is also to blame for the whole, “if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance” BS lie about Obamacare, a fact about which he laughed as you can see in this video via The Federalist:


Ugh. Yeah, real freakin’ funny, Favreau. Big liar.

Well, Favreau has now come out with something else that would be laughable if not so idiotic and tremendously offensive. That would be his comments directed to US Senator Tom Cotton, an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran. Payton sets the stage for Favreau’s comments toward Cotton in The Federalist:

In an effort to dispel the notion that he’s a quivering ninny, Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau told Iraq combat veteran and U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton that he’s seen “dangerous” things, too — like, you know, mailing letters.

In an interview with Hugh Hewitt Tuesday morning, Cotton mocked Obama’s team of foreign policy advisors as a bunch of “campaign flaks and failed novelists.”

‘You know, most of who’s left in the administration now are all these yes men and fan boys who were van drivers or press flaks for Barack Obama in Iowa and New Hampshire in 2008,’ Cotton added, recalling Obama’s first presidential campaign.

‘As if any of them have ever seen anything more dangerous than a shoving match when they were playing beer pong in the back of a bar in Georgetown.’

Do you remember that? The photo of a bunch of Obama’s staff playing beer pong in a DC watering hole? Oh, yeah – they are real serious kids.

Well, Favreau got his knickers in a wad that an actual war veteran called him out on having ZERO idea about what real danger is. Here was his “pithy” response (how is he a speechwriter, again?):

And yes, @SenTomCotton, I have seen something more dangerous, like when you went around the Constitution to undermine US foreign policy.12:54 PM – 17 May 2016

Favreau is referring to an open letter Cotton sent to Iran’s leadership last March explaining why the Iran nuclear deal is not as legally binding as they might think. The agreement between Obama and Iran’s leaders can be reversed under the direction of the next president because it is merely an executive agreement and not a treaty ratified by Congress, which the letter explained.

Some claimed Cotton’s letter was unconstitutional, and now Favreau is crying about how watching them do it made him feel unsafe.

But watching other people lick envelopes isn’t the only “dangerous” thing Favreau has endured throughout his political career. […](Click here to read the rest.)

Can you believe that? Seriously, how IDIOTIC can Favreau be??? He is SERIOUSLY comparing mailing a letter to FIGHTING IN A WAR ZONE?? Really? Just because Sen Cotton RIGHTLY told Iran that the deal with Iran was not binding, a deal we now know for a fact what many of us knew with a certainty – the Iran Deal was a big crock of hooey perpetrated by the White House on stupid no-nothing young journalists by people like Deputy National Security Adviser, Ben Rhodes, a fact in which he gleefully acknowledged in a New York Times interview.

And to move onto the Deputy National Security Adviser, even the author of that interviewer notes what I have said numerous times – Rhodes was a NOVELIST, and a failed one at that. Somehow, he managed to become the Deputy National Security Adviser for the President of the United States, who has now managed to screw up Egypt and the Middle East with his insistence that Obama get behind the “Arab Spring,” and also had a major hand in this horrendous “Iran Deal.” And in case you are wondering, Iran is already shopping around in Russia and China for some big time weapons now that they have cash, thanks to this idiotic deal.

Well, as you might imagine, Congress was pretty pissed off to find out from Mr. Rhodes that this Iran Deal thing was all smoke and mirrors, a con played on the American people by a willing, unthinking, uninspired to do their jobs, media who Rhodes played like a fiddle to do Obama’s bidding. Congress demanded Rhodes haul his smug little behind down to their hearing and answer some questions.

But Rhodes decided to hide behind Executive Privilege and not appear. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) had a WHOLE lot to say about Rhodes’ failure to appear, including the attacks on Sen. Cotton by Rhodes and Favreau (via The Right Scoop):


Oh, hell yeah – go get ’em, Rep. Gowdy! I just love how Gowdy takes on this punk, Rhodes. I would pay cash money, US dollars, to watch Gowdy interrogate Rhodes, wouldn’t you? Wipe that smug smile off his face, Trey! (Unfortunately, Rep. Chaffetz has decided not to subpoena Rhodes, not now anyway.)

The comments by these major White House players says a whole lot about their attitudes, and the sheer arrogance they have as Democrats certainly, but also in denigrating the service of an actual war veteran. These schmucks who are able to make these downright IDIOTIC comments BECAUSE of people like Sen. Tom Cotton have the audacity to treat him like yesterday’s trash. Wow. That says a whole lot about Favreau and Rhodes, NONE of it good.

At least that’s what I think. How about you? This is an Open Thread.

    The fact that Obama still has Rhodes and Favreau around says as much about him as it does about those two punks.

    And just think, if Trump wins you can expect the same kind of juvenile and incompetent people to be around for another 4 years at least.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      You said it, Marge. It really is astonishing that Obama didn’t drop-kick Favreau once that photo saw the light of day. That says a WHOLE lot abt him, and that Rhodes still has a job after his Iran Deal revelation. WOW.

      Oh, shudder the thought abt Trump and the caliber of people he would have…

    I love Trey Gowdy’s acerbic comments. The sarcasm is so thick you can almost see it.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Aren’t his comments awesome? I was cracking up, though registering his DEEP disdain for these kids who would equate WRITING to being in theater. What ignorant buffoons they are…

    no regrets.

    I know this will never happen, but I would love to see valjar questioned under oath about many things done in the last 8 years.
    who she takes orders from. What hold she has over the backtrack family.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      That would be something though, wouldn’t it?!

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I don’t think we will ever see her questioned, as she should be, but I do think that given her arrogance that she has made a whole lot of enemies inside the White House.

      Once a new administration is in there will probably be lots of books, articles and interviews revealing the power behind the throne.

      If Rove was supposedly Bush’s brain then Valerie Jarrett is certainly Obamas’.

    Let the tyranny continue.

    Roger Stone: Trump Should Pull CNN’s FCC License as President

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Good heavens, what is WRONG with Stone??? I just cannot get over the sheer idiocy and hypocrisy of all the people who raged and lamented abt Obama’s overreach, only to want someone far less stable to take the helm and do MORE! WTH?!?!?!

    Poll: Republicans Choose Trump Over Ryan To Lead The Party

    This isn’t a reflection of Trump’s supposed massive popularity – he won only 42 percent of the Republican primary votes. It’s a reflection of widespread discontent with a Republican establishment unwilling to go to the mat to stop President Obama’s agenda, instead negotiating budget deals that continue to fund Obamacare, executive amnesty, and the Iran deal, among other travesties.

    Less than a quarter of Republicans generally approve of the job Congress has done. Is it any wonder that few Republicans want to get behind the Republicans’ Congressional leader?
