"the man calling himself Obama"

Can we please start using this? It might even be better than Barry Soetoro, B. Hussein Obongo, or Partyrock Fartbangbus.

Why are you indifferent to this potential outcome?!
 
2012-06-14 09:50:25 AM
This really bothers me to hear about President Obama. When I chose to support him it was because the rhetoric had convinced me we finally found a man who would not just let us fall into commu-socialism but lead us there. A man who would rip asunder the constitution and laugh while doing it. With a gleeful smile (so I pictured) he would remove all traces of religion from the US, snatch the very christ from christmas, take our guns and give all our money to poors and browns. He would plow under the very Christian roots of this nation to plant the fresh seeds of Islam and water them with the distilled tears of persecuted christians and laugh, laugh while doing it.

And now I find...indifference? is he even trying to destroy all that is good in the world with malice aforethought, or is he just bumbling towards world destruction completely oblivious and indifferent? I am shocked by this and am rethinking my view of this President Mr Barrack Indifferent Schmobama. Some Anti-christ :(

So he's just calling himself Obama, then. Which means it's not his real name, he's changed it in the past, and will change it again!

Obama, at the end of the meeting: Gentlemen, from this day forward... You will all refer to me by the name "Betty."

I voted for a man who calls himself Obama solely because I got the impression he'd be indifferent to an economic collapse in Italy.

So, Obama isn't panicking and rushing headlong into doing something stupid?

The horror. The horror. He must be impeached. INVADE ITALY!

He's making a point that Italy's debt to GDP is worse than Spain's, but that's not actually Spain's problem. Spain's problem is bank capitalization which is thorny to solve because the ECB doesn't have the powers that the Fed has to bail out banks.

So to summarize: he does an apples and oranges and then something about barrakku fartsoma, and I the usual "we're all doomed pitch" which is losing its luster as we watch this slow motion crisis drag into its 4th year.

So I think the author is missing something obvious... how many farking countries is Obama supposed to prop up and is doing so REALLY going to protect everyone from economic calamity?

There are serious problems in multiple countries in Europe. We also have our own continuing problems - which congress isn't fixing - so where does it end? Why should we pump a bunch of American cash to save Italy, just to have the problems in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, et al. just come along and cause problems for the Euro anyway? Then we have just flushed billions of dollars down the drain to solve a crisis that happens anyway when we might have at least been able to put that cash to better use at home!

And if Italy got itself in to this mess why in fark's name should we believe that pumping them full of cash they didn't earn is going to solve it and not just delay the inevitable? Will us bailing out Italy make Italy learn its lesson and act with more fiscal wisdom from now on as a country? We can't even clean up our OWN farking act yet!

It may just be indifference not because he doesn't care... it may be indifference because there's no POINT to caring. We can't save the entire farking world from themselves. We just literally can't even if we wanted to. Even the US isn't that wealthy.

The European problems are too big for us to solve, and the Europeans generally seem somewhat less than willing to do what's necessary to solve them long term. Perhaps we, or Europe, shouldn't think so much about how to save the Euro - what with it's considerable issues - and instead should concentrate on what comes after.

And remember; if he DID spend money to prop them up, they'd biatch about that as well.

I think most Americans don't give a rat's ass about Italy, and if Europe collapses, well, that's on them.

We already spent billions (maybe trillions) bailing out our banks which then turned around sent a lot of that money to Europe. I don't think Congress or the President wants to piss off nearly the entire American population by sending more of our money overseas to billionaires.

The phrase "global economy" isn't just two fun words rammed together that don't mean anything. Look at why Europe tanked in the first place... criminally negligent (should be criminal anyhow) financial behaviour that was predominantly created and practiced by private corporations in the US.

I agree that the US tax payers shouldn't have to foot the bill, but it'd be pretty hard to make Wall St. do it.

I guess when you're screaming down a slope towards a huge cliff such that there is nothing you can do to keep from plunging off it, gunning it and going for style points starts being more attractive than futilely slamming on the brakes:)

So, if the Eurozone collapses, damaging the US economy, Obama is an indifferent ditherer who is incapable of being President. If Obama takes action to save the Eurozone, he's a socialist dictator who wants a global new world order government and is incapable of being President.

Do I have that right?
