Bad news: Notorious narcissist now has a “selfie stick”

posted at 2:41 pm on February 12, 2015 by Allahpundit

Giving this guy his own selfie stick is like giving Charlie Sheen his own meth lab.

WaPo wryly borrows BuzzFeed’s own format for its headline on this: “Which image of Obama mugging for BuzzFeed’s cameras diminshes the presidency the most, ranked.” That’s cute, but c’mon. This “diminishes the presidency” to the same degree that Brian Williams’s lies diminish the media’s credibility. All they’re doing in both cases is bombing the rubble. And like Williams’s lying, it’s self-interested: The deadline for enrolling in ObamaCare this year is just three days away. BuzzFeed is Obama’s pipeline to young, healthy twentysomethings whose precious premiums the insurance industry needs to keep O’s boondoggle afloat. Not coincidentally, his “Between Two Ferns” interview with Zach Galifianakis last year for “Funny or Die” also came just before the enrollment deadline. Jokey viral videos are now evidently the go-to White House strategy for grabbing the attention of young adults in a pinch. Makes me wonder what sort of YouTube extravaganza he has planned for next February, his last before leaving office. It’s … probably going to involve the Kardashians, isn’t it?

In lieu of an exit question, enjoy this Photoshopped sneak preview of the White House circa 2016. And as a reminder that, unlikely as it may seem, we can do even worse than O, enjoy Joe Biden below (via the Free Beacon) giving a little shoutout to an old “butt buddy” of his.

Bad news: Notorious narcissist now has a “selfie stick”

Theodore Roosevelt once said: “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”.

Obama interpreted that phrase to mean: “Speak softly and carry a selfie stick.”

rukiddingme on February 12, 2015 at 5:10 PM

He can take that stick and shove it up his…..oh hell!!..whats the use???

elvis lives on February 12, 2015 at 5:20 PM

Wow!!…a really long dill-do for reggie, shaped like a stick with a camera on the end of it…

elvis lives on February 12, 2015 at 5:29 PM

Just from looking at the comments on Buzzfeed it looks like all the low information voters are all excited about this. Nothing but Obama worship.

Can we beat that arrogant, petulant, narcissistic sociopath with his selfie-stick? Mock his selfies?

All that’s missing with the Col. Klink imitation is the uniform.

Athos on February 12, 2015 at 5:49 PM

Obama interpreted that phrase to mean: “Speak softly and carry a selfie stick.”

I think the proper interpretation is “Jabber incoherently and carry a selfie stick.”

Let’s face it, as long as the requisite number of trained seals are clapping, this guy just doesn’t give a rat’s behind about what he is supposed to be doing.

F X Muldoon on February 12, 2015 at 6:02 PM

Every single day he loves to do things to just piss on tradition and American values.

It’s like there is a great 12 year old running the government.

He won’t read his Daily briefing, he jacks around and doesn’t act on hostage rescues in time, and on and on and on.

He’s massaging the only demo he can get away with lying to, twenty-somethings. When he leaves office he is going to be a community organizer/ race hustler the country has ever seen and the only ones that will follow his every word are the pajama boys who read liberal blogs.

Per Howie Kurtz, this video was shot on the same day that it was confirmed that Kayla Mueller had been killed by ISIS…..just so you know.

He has Anthony Weiner envy. Also he golf’s like an adolescent girl and throws like a pansy azz.

SpongePuppy on February 12, 2015 at 6:47 PM

It’s not narcissistic enough for him to just take pictures of himself. He has to have pictures taken of himself taking pictures of himself.

Maybe I was just a very naive kid, but I certainly remember the Presidency carrying a boatload more class, respect and decorum as a kid…..sigh. Obama diminishes everything he touches, doesn’t he?

He just doesn’t care much, does he.

He knew of her whereabouts months before trying any rescue. Sure, he’s no leader and he’s risk-averse to boot. But the bigger problem is…

He doesn’t really give a sh*t about stuff like this.

Yep, if it weren’t for low class, he’d have no class at all.

If it’s not his butt in the fire, then not to worry… it’s just collateral damage.

petefrt on February 12, 2015 at 7:22 PM

A friend of mine said that if you told The One that he had been appointed Ultimate Totality God of Everything in the Universe, but he had to move to the Universal Capital in the Andromeda Galaxy to assume the post, we’d have a robust space program because The One would demand NASA get him there ASAP.

Seeing this, I’m inclined to believe it.

I still stand by my estimate that on his last day in office, The One will nuke some annoying red states at random, then put on a propeller beanie, grab his golf clubs, and go roller-skating off down Pennsylvania Avenue in his shorts singing “Macho Man” a capella.

But now I suspect he’ll have this in the hand that isn’t going up and down in the air marking time.

I’m wondering. After he’s out of office and traveling the world delivering anti-Western and anti-American rants to packed houses everywhere he goes, whether or not he’ll use this to supply close-up, real-time coverage of his yammering face on the Web.

Probably. The paying audience in the auditorium will just have to understand that he’s there for him, not them.

You are correct, he most certainly is not a god, but the MSM and a large segment of his voter base remains unconvinced. Spread the word please.

he’s not infallible: Now hold on one second there. You mean to tell me Barak makes mistakes? No way.

I mean there was the HC thing, and the JV terrorists remark, the Bergdahl swap, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Nigeria, Ukraine, Ebola, GM, green energy, shovel readiness, border security, gun-running, IRS scandal, corpse-man, inappropriate timing for golfing or campaigning, unnecessary galas and swanky vacations, global warming or cooling or climate hopey/changey, various executive overreaches, and that whole misinterpreting the Constitution stuff…….but other than that…….errr………..let’s move on shall we.

and no one’s ever suggested such:
Well maybe David Brooks. And everyone at

Agree!

Add to the “malignant fool” all the rinos, & especially our 2 rino leaders, Boehner & McConnell.

Even those with minimal understanding of politics can see how they’re attempting to fool us into thinking they’re trying to stop O’s anti-American agenda. They want socialism as well. They love being one of the elites. They love control. You watch & see how they’ll pretend to care when the FCC commands the internet. They’ll resort to their favorite line of Cromnibus, executive actions, O-care…”oh, but we tried.” Maybe even get a boo-hoo out of Boehner this time.

Anyone know off hand the % of rinos vs. true patriots, in our House & Senate?

Belle on February 13, 2015 at 12:03 PM
