CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the “perfect physical specimen” Barack Obama into the White House.Now that Morgan is back in his native Britain — after having been fired by CNN — he writes an opinion column for The Daily Mail. And what Piers Morgan wrote in one of those columns that’s incredibly, astonishingly critical of Barack Obama raises three questions:
“After the perfect Barack Obama, who’s a perfect physical specimen to many people’s eyes, does it matter?” Morgan asked his guest.
President Obama this week committed professional suicide.Ouch. Big ouch.
He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus over the rise of terror group ISIS.
A more shameless, reprehensible display of buck-passing would be hard to find from a sitting President.
The truth is that Obama is the one who underestimated ISIS, plunging his head ostrich-like into the sand and hoping they would go away without having to do anything to actually make them go away.
Far from making America stronger, Obama has made the world’s greatest military power look weak. So weak that these Jihadist thugs think they can behead American citizens with impunity in glossy snuff movies.
It’s time he got off the damn golf course, got up to speed with his intelligence briefings and focused on wiping out ISIS.
Before they wipe out more of the people he serves.
Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.There you go, GOP ad producers — the ominous 14 words, courtesy of Barack Obama himself: “Make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): “I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.” Boil those four sentences down even further and here’s what you are left with: “Make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
It doesn’t take a political mastermind to realize that an ad in which the President of the United States says “Make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them” might not be helpful to the Democratic candidates trying to run away from him this November.Obama’s popularity is badly hurting. He generally has poor approval ratings in states where Democrats are struggling to stay competitive in key Senate races. The president’s numbers on front-of-the-mind issues such as the economy, national security, and health care are seen as heavy weights on candidates in his own party who are trying desperately to distance themselves from an unpopular leader.
I think that underestimates the impact of an unpopular president (on video no less!) bluntly insisting that an election in 33 days is indeed a referendum on his policies. Republicans couldn’t have written a better script than that.Image Credit: youtube | The White House
