Obamateurism of the Day

With ObamaCare struggling to survive, Barack Obama has two messages for the American people. First, the time for talk is over. Second … he’s coming to every town he can to talk about how the time for talk is over. Not that this is a new message, mind you; whether the subject is energy independence, global warming, health care, Porkulus, or Porkulus again, Obama wants us to know that the time for talk is over.

I compiled a mashup of a few repeats of Obama’s greatest hit:

Isn’t it odd that a man who likes doing nothing but nonstop talking wants everyone else to shut up? After all, this is the same man who spoke more at the health-care summit — an Obama idea of spending a whole day talking — than the entire Republican contingent combined. Obviously, Obama prefers monologue over dialogue, and he’ll make sure everyone knows it on his latest “Shut up, he explained” tour.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at [email protected] with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. 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. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.
