“I take responsibility….for making an argument that people can understand.”
~~ Barack Obama, Nov. 2010
Last month, in anticipation of the impending 100 year Republican flood that would wipe out his party’s majority from sea-to-sea, Barack Obama had already identified the source of the problem: frightened and ignorant voters.
This week, in the wake of that bloodbath, our most intelligent and articulate president ever! continues to offer sage analysis:
“Leadership is a matter of persuading people.”
You see, the voters did not reject his policy agenda at all.
What happened was just a colossal misunderstanding. If we actually understood the Obama program and all those big bills that were passed in stealth Congressional sessions by elected officials who did not read them, millions of voters would be grateful to Obama’s leadership team for saving our nation from ruin.
Got that? Let me repeat it for the slow readers: YOU THE VOTERS DID NOT REJECT OBAMA’S POLICIES. YOU JUST DID NOT UNDERSTAND THEM. OKAY?
And, please get this part, especially: Obama is really really sorry that he did not realize how stupid you were from the get-go. If he had realized that you are such low-information slow learners, he would have put simpler words on the teleprompters for his 65 health care speeches and 55 townhalls.
“Making an argument that people can understand,” Mr. Obama continued, “I think that we haven’t always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And it’s something that I’ve got to examine carefully … as I go forward.”
Thank you, Mr. President. From now on I will try listening even harder and taking more careful notes so that I can follow what you are telling me. Thank you for saving our nation! Thank you for keeping the oceans from rising! Thank you for healing our planet! Thank you for being the One I Have Waited For!
