Life with the Nanny President

Well, this says it all about how President Obama sees his role in our lives:

In “Revival: The Struggle for Survival Inside Obama’s White House,” MSNBC analyst Richard Wolffe, a writer sympathetic to the president, reports the prosaic backroom details of the White House struggles from early this year, but occasionally stumbles upon an off-the-cuff revelation that’s much more interesting.

One staffer was conspicuously overweight. The president, in an incident that Wolffe believes proves how caring the man is, took it upon himself to present the aide with a salad for lunch — “then listened to him protest that he could take care of his own health. ‘I love you, man,’ Obama said. ‘I want you to look after yourself. Eat the salad.’ ”

I love you, man. Eat the salad. That is the Obama presidency in a plastic see-through clamshell. (Hold the ranch dressing!) The president loves us. He knows what’s best for us. We should bow to his superior wisdom.

This reminds me of a video Mary Katherine Ham did soon after the inauguration:

Little did she know she was making a documentary, not just satire.

Dear Mr. President:

Thanks for the love, man, but –and don’t take this personally– mind your own business!

    But can’t we all see? He is the all-knowing, all wise, exceptionally intelligent Anointed One. Why would we serfs dare question his wisdom and knowledge as he mandates unprecedented federal power and regulation? We need to bow to his greater being and just take it–in the you-know-what. . . and like it. I think they call it the ‘down low’.

    Great story & so true that We the People, cannot take care of ourselves & need the govt. to do it for us.

    With that said, there was once something called the Intolerable Acts (5 of them in 1774) that incited people to rebel against tyranny that intruded into the lives of people, right down to the tea they were drinking.

    There’s a modern day thriller just out along these same lines. It’s Americans standing up to tyranny (patdowns/body scans) that are our Intolerable Acts. Could be that history is now calling on each of us to fulfill our true destiny afterall. I recommend it

    Notice how TSA backed down on their patdowns once the People took a stand?

    ‘Tis not for the ignorant to tell that shining bastion of knowledge what they do or don’t want – he already knows what’s best for them and , just coincidentally, him in his scramble for ultimate power.

    See, even a yokel who works for him and is part of his master plan doesn’t know that. How ignorant is that?
