Barack Obama: Supporters Get Words, Backers Get Deeds
Obama's able to wrap a bomb in Valentine's Day wrapping with no one ever noticing it was a bomb and not a box of chocolates
Recently, the national security adviser for former President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, gave an interview to The Daily Beast in which he suggested President Obama should make it clear to Israel that if they attempt to attack Iran's nuclear weapons sites the U.S. Air Force will stop them. "We are not exactly impotent little babies," Brzezinski said. "They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch? ... We have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a 'Liberty' in reverse."
(Notice the slip
here: "our airspace in Iraq." Brzezinski implicitly suggests
that Iraq is a colony of the US. That's very telling. So now Iraq is ours
and its airspace is our airspace. Wow!)
That is to say, when Obama's giving out grand comments and making big statements, it's always a cover for actions that are utterly contrary. That's why he's there. He's able to wrap a bomb in Valentine's Day wrapping with no one ever noticing it was a bomb and not a box of chocolates after all.
I used to think that the key to Obama was to plug one's ears when he spoke so as not to be misled. Now I think differently. I think one has to listen in order to hear what he's not saying. What he says is always the obverse of some action that is taking or is about to take. What he says is a verbal compensation for the actual damage he's doing to the party being promised something.
Remember when he told Hillary Clinton that speeches ARE important? Well, they are --because for him speeches are the compensatory mechanisms that he uses to distribute in words the benefits that he's denying in actuality.
Speeches are his only gifts to those who support him.
