Reality Land vs. Fantasyland for Obama

Is the President's need to be liked affecting his job performance?

Concerns are arising about Obama’s health considering his recent decisions.  As a coping mechanism, when stress becomes overwhelming, a person will opt out of a situations that proves to be too heavy for the mind.  Recently, the Commander in Chief chose to appear on television talk shows instead of meeting with world leaders during the annual United Nations convention.  Did choosing Fantasyland - television, instead of reality land - the United Nations, becoming a copping mechanism for this mentality burdened president, as his lack of leadership skills continue to become glaringly more apparent? He continues to seek acceptance by visiting Fantasyland where he will not be asked hard-hitting questions from his adoring Hollywood followers.   Please click on the following link for a look at how our president is handling the stresses of the day.

As the state of our country’s security continues to falter, the inexperienced president is showing out of touch with reality behaviors. He must continue to put forth the narrative that Al-Qaeda has been crushed so he can appear to be a strong leader.  His continued avoidance of the reality is troubling.  At what point did the White House know it was a terrorist attack and not the made up fantasy of a movie put out by the White House? There must be accountability.  He continues to seek acceptance in Fantasyland, instead of performing his job as leader of the free world.  While many have seen this trend for the last few months, it was glaringly apparent, to many on the left, with his latest trip to the land of Fantasy during an attack on our country.

Why does Obama refuse to speak to the American people about the terrorist attack in Libya on 911?  What did he say about the attack?  “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” were his exact words.  The Obama administration, which is sending a taxpayer-subsidized cash gift of $450 million to Muslim Brotherhood-run Egypt has not even stopped the payments in light of the recent attack on our embassy.   Why will the word Al-Qaeda not come out of his mouth?  How did the ambassador die?  Why did he send in the FBI to investigate instead of our military?  What is his staff covering up?  His inability to admit what happened in Libya is troubling in many ways?  Is his lack of experience in national security is playing heavily into his inability to contend with difficulties about the 911 attack.  His answer is to ignore the problem and seek the acceptance of Hollywood once again. 

What is it about the mind of our commander in chief that will not allow him to admit failure?  How is it the man that pledged to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, can’t stand up and address our country about the 911 terrorist attack in 2012?  It is very troubling that since he cannot blame the attack on anyone, he has instead chosen to ignore the situation and have his staff reduce it to a movie trailer!   

Bush not only traveled to the attack sight, stood on the rubble, but he boldly took the bullhorn and announced to the world that we would get those who attacked us. Compare that famous scene to Obama’s bumbling words on The View as he could not admit the United States was under attack around the world by terrorist groups, Muslim terrorist groups.  There, I said it!  His weakness on foreign policy has come back to attack him and he is in denial.

His staff blanked the Sunday news shows with stories that is was an offensive movie that got our fellow Americans killed, all the while knowing it was a planned terrorist attack against our country.  Obama, the blind, eight days after the attack was still in denial. Our UN ambassador claimed it was a movie deal gone wrong.  Finally, when pressed by the Senate leaders for more intel, Secretary of State Clinton, announced it was a terrorist attack.  The White House’s Press Secretary admitted the United States of America was attacked by terrorist in a very uneasy meeting before the press core.  If you are a follower of the FBI body language reading methods, you will see shame written all over this poor fellow’s face.   

Yet, Obama & Michelle, the “Let Them Eat Cake First Lady of Arrogance,” choose to go visit Fantasyland & the adoring women of The View & avoid the reality of the day.  No one pressed him when he bumbled around for the answer as to IF we were attacked by Al-Qaeda.  No hard questions from the panel because they need Obama for their ratings.  They did not want to embarrass him like David Letterman embarrassed him by asking a "tough" question like, “What is the amount of our national debt?” which Obama did not know.  Calling himself  “EYE CANDY,” in an obvious troubled cry out for his need of acceptance during this time of trial. 

The reality of what happened on 911, in the year 2012, has not yet reached the president’s brain.  He raised his hand, over a book, and swore to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.  How many more Americans will have to die before the BOOB TUBE STAR WANNABE Prez will show up to a National Security meeting and listen to the Joint Chiefs?  

What once was thought to be a man enamored with Hollywood is very quickly revealing itself as Obama’s need to escape into Fantasyland to deal with the reality of being the president.  His own staff is busy putting out statements that Obama will not be ready for the debates.  Are they pre qualifying the upcoming debates ahead of time as they have seen what his mental state truly is?  

Admitting you made a mistake is hard for anyone.  It takes strength to see the truth and courage to change.  Yet, the past two weeks have left many on the left questioning what the president is thinking when it comes to national security.  Many of the 20% of independent voters are quickly moving their votes over to the Romney camp.  Realizing that he will garner more votes by visiting Fantasyland, Obama refuses to do the hard job of being President and the voters in Fantasyland are just fine with that.  Let’s face it, we need a man that can handle the reality of the job, not one who constantly needs to escape into adoring Fantasyland.

The full text of the address from which you plucked your out of context quote: PRESIDENT OBAMA addresses the U.N. General Assembly: The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt – it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women – it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons. The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support. The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.

Yawn...blabiddy...blah...says the female blogger...Rushette Limbah-Dela Wannabee.. Your blogs are increasingly showing that when under stress you will say just about anything that the Republican base wants to hear... Its comical at best.... the “Let Them Eat Cake First Lady of Arrogance,” ...really? The First Lady who is pushing a eat better and get your body in shape initiative is really...."The let them eat cake first lady of arrogance"..... Its ok to dislike someone...but this sounds more like hate that you are spreading. There is really nothing realistic about your blogs....these are your crazy opinions. But hey...this is a freedom of speech world. Keep spewing nonsense. Obama fully knows the whole story in Lybia....just like Bush and Cheney still know where all the WMD is in Iraq. Right wing nuts trying still dragging our dead embassador through the mud by trying to discredit the President. Very sad how low people go to sling mud. The real issues like Ecomony, Taxes, illegals....don't talk about that....just talk about Lybia....a country in a region where crazy happens every day. Next you will be telling us that Obama secretly knows when the next Afganistan Police officer will turn on our troops.... Title of this post should be: Reality of the Right and Fantasyland for Montgomery........Jeez......

It is apparent that this person doesn't know how things operate after anUS Embassy is attacked. And you better be sure who you point the finger at in the hornets nest of Libya. Yes, they might have had evidence that a potential group was planning something. But how many more terrorist groups in the area were also planning attacks? All we hear is what the media feeds us. Unless your home town is in Libya and you know all the various political divides, not to mention religous frictions, you better lay low on comments. Our President has to watch his words more carefully than the media, and verify topics more than once even from his own staff. Especially after the Weapons of Mass Destruction-President who lead us into a war with no proof.

GOOD GRIEF! The patch must really be hurting for stories.
Cynthia Montgomery October 03, 2012 at 11:04 PM
Americans are dying at Obams's hands and the truth is beginning to come out instead of being left on the editor's desk. Amazing that you continue to BLAME Bush yet we are supposed to think the killing of Bin Ladin is one of Obama's greatest feats as president. You can't have it both ways! What else happened 4 years ago that you are still gripping about? The proof is all over the media the left still refuses to see reality & continues to dawdle in Fantasyland with Obama. Reagan did not take your tone Susan or we would still be in a cold war. Let's wait until the full report comes out before we talk about coverups. If your son or daughter was at that embassy I doubt you would be saying, "We better not do anything or we might make somebody mad!" Obams's lack of leadership got four American's killed, period! Any person with half a brain knew that to put out to the public that a movie caused the death of American officials on 911 would be uncovered as foolishness! He had creditable reports that that embassy was in danger. He did nothing! Until one libby can tell me they were proud to see their PRESIDENT on The View calling himself "EYE CANDY" I hold that this president is dangerous to our country, our economy, & our future. Keep telling yourself that you did not make a mistake 4 years ago. I don't live in Libya yet, those that did live there asked for protection & your Obama did not send it. What does the left say, "It could have been worse," is his cry once again! Fools

Cynthia, I can't even go here. My son was in Iraq and actually saw WMD's. People think they are big rockets. A WMD can be a tiny speck that can take out a city (mustard gas is one). So much that the public will never know. Political correctness gave them time to get that stuff smuggled to Syria (that's where most soldeirs from that time will tell you). All I know is that Bush did everything to protect our guys. He was at every briefing and had no problem with discourse regarding decisions (which is a vital part of a briefing). This president doesn't even show up for them (gets it on paper) and now we have dead Americans. Had he been where he should have been, rather than on the campaign trail, he might have heeded Libya's insistance that we send more protection. A good president puts his own agenda aside to protect his country FIRST. But you have to be selfless to do that rather than a member of the me generation. It's no wonder they want to cover this up. Bad thing is, that even if the percent who idolize him knew the truth, they would idolize him anyway (unless that had been one of their family members, they don't care). I've thought about doing some research as to why people idolized hitler even as they stoood in bread lines and watched as jews were burned in ovens. i might do that tonight and skip the debate. I'm really not interested. Seriously.

Tammy, you are so right. Obama is just so out of touch with national security. It is sad but at this time I do hear from the undecided that they are questioning the leadership of Obama and his love of the TV lights. How can a president spend more time visiting Lettermen, Leno, and The View instead of spending time with the Joint Chiefs. I am just glad that many are finally opening their eyes to the lack of leadership in the WHite House. Thank you son for his service. His views hold more weight than the bloggers on this Patch. Got to go as the debates have begun.
Tammy Osier October 04, 2012 at 01:16 AM
Cynthia, everywhere I looked I found these chilling words (paraphrased): People supported Hitler because he promised them what they wanted and needed to hear. The Weimar Republic appeared to have no idea how to solve the problems of the Depression. The Nazis on the other hand promised to solve the problems. Hitler promised most groups in Germany what they wanted. Hitler used the Jews and other sections of society as scapegoats, blaming all the problems on them. WOW. Sounds familiar. Look how they ended up, yet they still followed him. There's got to be a gene that misfires somewhere in some people. I don't know. lol
Tammy Osier October 04, 2012 at 02:53 AM
Decided to watch the debate after all. I like it how Romney called bho on the facts. When bho said , "we did this, we did that", Roimeny asked, "Where's your evidence?" BHO had no reply. I was very encouraged by the debate. Now if only people watched with an open mind and heart.
Cynthia Montgomery October 04, 2012 at 04:43 AM
According to the focus groups, Romney wiped the floor with Obama. obama was weak and angry. He came off arrogant and flat. I guess he was waiting for the ladies of THE VIEW to gush all over him or maybe he was waiting for Leno to laugh at his comments. Obama was not only off his game as his campaign manager said he was out of the game. it is time for a leader ,not a BOOB TUBE WANNA BE Prez!
M.A.Dawson October 04, 2012 at 04:59 AM
Really? Is everyone supposed to think you did your global research to find out exactly how the debate was rated? Good God! Who can't watch two minutes of Hannity to make such an unbiased report as you have? WEAK!
Tammy Osier October 04, 2012 at 10:31 AM
Cynthia, that's what we've been trying to say all along. The media covers for him because they know he has no substance. Even Bill maher and chris matthews said Romney won. Let the excuse making begin. If you look at the transcript (no, I didn't listen to any Fox pundits afterwards), if becomes obvious that when you actually get challenged on the empty words you use to fool people, you can't defend it. Bho didn't expect Romney to clal him out on his ability to make things up. Romney has something called experience and used it. I think people realized that we need a 'father figure" not "uncle eye candy". Maybe the American people can begin to grow up now.
Cynthia Montgomery October 04, 2012 at 04:47 PM
MA, please dear tell us what TV show or news show you watched that said Obama won? SO sad that even in defeat, they still can't accept that obama is more interested in being loved by Hollywood than running this country. So MA please list your proof that anyone said Obama won besides the Obama camp! LOL I know it will be hard since the national news stations went blank just about the time focus groups results were being announced. But watching CNN and FOX proved to be in line with the REST of the world in that obama was lost and angry during most of the debate. Gone was his" EYE CANDY" image that he loves to believe himself to be. He was long winded without making any points. Less time on Jay's couch and maybe we will see a "president" next time. Let's face it, the man has no business experience and our country is in need of a "business" leader that will produce JOBS! Over 8% unemployment & his lack of national security has our enemies laughing at us and allies not trusting us. Obama followers better hurry and go get your free OBAMAPHONE before you loose out. The rest of us will be at work making our country stronger even with poor leadership. I am laughing as I read the demos give the reasons as to why they think he won. I heard the manish VIEW ladies say he lost because he was mad that he had to debate on his anniversary! REALLY? Wow, now there is an example of how foolish the left is! I fear for our country because I know they believe what they are saying!
Cynthia Montgomery October 04, 2012 at 05:00 PM
M A DAWSON, I must have hit a nerve for you to compare me to Hannity.I do not have a radio in my office or home. I choose to listen to quiet positive music. My husband loves to listen to the ANGRY WHITE MAN radio, I do not. He has, in respect of my wishes, taken up walking each morning and listening to the ANGRY WHITE MAN talk shows. Yet, I take that as a point of pride that you find my musings at the level of these talk radio stars. I must say that I do not listen to him unless I am driving and even then I prefer Fish104.7 to white men arguing. The major news shows, even the liberal ones, called Romney the winner. I agree with them. Obama was weak, confused, and could not stop talking as if he though that if he kept talking he might say something of substance- NOT! I have seen him continue to seek approval in talk shows as he realizes he is ill equipped to handle the issues and problems facing America. It is sad to see this man "begging' for approval from Hollywood week after week. Romney showed up and schooled Obama in how businesses can bring our country back. Obama has not clue as to how business works, how to lead, how to set a schedule but he is really good about giving himself a nick name. His self professed nickname of. "EYE CANDY" says it all! Loks good but in reality is just sickening.

Damn woman, can you write a single paragraph without talking about yourself. WHO CARES? me me me me me me me me me me me me
Cynthia Montgomery October 04, 2012 at 06:19 PM
Georgian Republican, Did I offend you with the words Angry White Men? I can and I do write about things other than myself many times. I spend most time writing for the masses. I do not bother or worry about if my experiences or my views will be accepted by the right or the left. I choose to write about me, you, us, and them. If you do not like my style of writing, I suggest you turn off your computer or stop reading my blogs. I hope you do not because education is a thing of value. For many, reading these blogs and their comments are opening their minds to the opinions of others. You may like the comment or hate the comment but you read a new comment and another persons view and I think that is preferred to reruns of Bonanza or Friends. GR, thanks for reading thoughts written by me me me me me me me me me me & me! LOL!
