Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:05 am on February 27, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

When Barack Obama demanded $800 billion from Congress in early 2009 for his Porkulus plan, he claimed that he would rescue the economy through the funding of “shovel-ready jobs.” Later, he admitted that there isn’t any such thing as shovel-ready jobs, but if there were, Obama seems to have an allergy to them:

It was a rather odd sight: as an array of museum officials, including former first lady Laura Bush, took up shovels at the groundbreaking for the first national museum dedicated exclusively to African-American history and culture, the nation’s first black president sat watching, no shovel in hand. …

When he finished and returned to his seat, a call was put out for groundbreakers to gather at the front of the stage. Obama then stood, buttoned his jacket and prepared to join in. But an official whispered something to him and he sat back down as museum officials and members of the museum’s advisory council, including the former first lady, picked up shovels for the ceremonial turning of the dirt. The Obamas remained on stage.

Protocol does not seem to have played a role. Turns out, presidents throughout history have wielded shovels for groundbreakings.

It’s a lot like his presidency.  He gives a good speech, but when it comes to getting any real work done, he’s happy to sit it out. (via Glenn Reynolds)

I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well.

I wouldn’t trust boil water, much less use a shovel.

If Prez actually stood up to answer the call for shovels, and someone told him not to, then who the heck was that person, what did he say, and why did Prez Beta Obama do what he was told?

Turns out, presidents throughout history have wielded shovels for groundbreakings.

This is true, but those past presidents filled those shovels with gravel, or topsoil, or concrete.

This particular president seems to have a thing for exclusively and consistently filling his shovel with the somewhat noxious end by product that occurs in the intestinal evacuation system found in the male genre of the species known as Genus Bovine.

CorporatePiggy on February 27, 2012 at 8:15 AM

Last week, while I rode home from work on my commuter bus in downtown D.C., the bus passed the area where the African American History Museum will be located. An older African American gentleman on my bus said to the bus driver, “You know they wanted to stop this. They protested it. They didn’t want this to be built.”

We’ve got to stop “They” because apparently “They” is a very evil person.

Using a shovel is for middle-class peons.

I am NEVER one to support or defend our so-called Commander in Chief, but need to offer some clarification on this. The only ones who did the groundbreaking are those on the advisory council and museum officials. Laura Bush is on the council. What frosts me are the photos of Barry and Mooch lounging on the stage during this looking like an emperor and empress.
There was a great post at Huffpo that castigated the museum for NOT including Barry in the groundbreaking. The writer then had to issue a clarification as to why he wasn’t.

Obama actually rising and prepared to grab a shovel and be part of the photo op….and was then told to sit down.

All of my encounters and experienceds with that level of visits and ceremonies is that every move is scripted…to prevent embarrassing moments or missed cues.

Obama just assumed that since he was there he’d be the focus of attention and naturally would take shovel in hand. Either Obama is an amateur or his staff is…or maybe his staff left him out to dry on this one.

Bet there were curt words back at the White House after the ceremony.

And yes, Obama and Michelle do look like Emperor and Empress Bokassa back on the dais.

Shovels were tools used by black slaves so for our Dear Leader to be seen with one in hand is patently racist – and anyone who would suggest that he have a shovel in his hand is racist, and anyone who has ever used a shovel is racist, and anyone who used the word shovel is racist.

*turfmann blows his dog whistle – which is also racist*

It is most probable that Wee Barry Soetoro didn’t wield a shovel because he does not know which end to hold, or what the damned thing is used for.

The American Indians have their museum, the African Americans are getting their musueum, the Hispanics are demanding a museum of their own. Of course the irony is all of this is within a short walk of the MLK monument celebrating the creation of a color-blind society.

He is simply a parrot spouting out various versions of the same speech time and again (the way musicians on a road tour rev up a crowd by throwing in “Hello [insert tonight's audience]” into their acts as if they are unscripted and original).

From what I’ve read in other articles, only the board members were allowed to break ground. Dufus is not a board member, so he wasn’t allowed to take credit for other peoples’ work. (another 1st for this admin)

Nutstuyu on February 27, 2012 at 2:15 PM

It was an embarassing moment not only that he stood up like an clueless idiot, but also that he was invited, but not honored as one of the ground breakers. That in itself speaks volumns about Obama and Michelle that is not out on pubic display. It was gracious for the gentleman to clue Obama that he should sit back down, preventing further embarassment to him and our nation.

As bad as the moment was, the real issue is that Obama was clueless as to why he was there. I may be just me, but this seems to be an increassing problem for him. His daily briefings are only ten to fifteen minutes each morning. That is just about enough time to make sure he zipped up and read the short list of daily events, remarks and fundrasiers with travel arrangments. It was said that they gave up long ago trying to inform him on the economy because it was just an effort in frustration. If that is really true, then it goes without saying that he is not doing any work at a desk, since if he did, he would understand his briefing on matters such as the econonmy. If you look at his daily schedule, and his goof off times, the question having time to sit at a desk is obvious that he doesn’t do it often if at all.

If you happen to follow his schedule; when it says speech, it means that the press has some access or a pook reporter covering the event. If it says “remarks” it means no press, no outside ears, no photos, since the press has no rights to his personal remarks.

If you happen to notice that most of what he does is campaigning, or as he calls it, Fundraising, since that covers using taxpayers money in the same way that a little official business at desired places meant it was not a vacation, but just a little family sight seeing as long as they were there. If you also happened to recall that strange Joint Session of Congress to pass his jobs bill that, like shovel ready jobs, did not really exist. That effort had nothing to do with a jobs bill, as Reid can attest to. It was to give Obama something he could campaign on, something with easy sound bites and importance to the nation and yet broad enough to keep it vage. I suspect that Obama the narcissist was doing as most of them do when confronted with failure, they go off the deep end. As Obama has no ability to deal with his job if the people around him fail to do it for him, and thatwas not going to change, the only solution was to get him doing the one thing he feels he can do well; campaigning.

So far so well, but worrisome things are showing around the edges and then there is the million dollar question, what happens when Obama loses the election, and the campaign is over?
