President Obama is at it again, this time scolding Democratic octogenarians in the pages of AARP Magazine:
[I]f old people, especially these little old ladies with walkers now want to take their balls of yarn and very slowly go home instead of starting out right this minute for their local polling locations, that tells me these elderly folks weren't serious in the first place...The idea that we've got a lack of enthusiasm in our retirement homes and hospices, that these ancient Americans are sitting in their wheelchairs and complaining, is just irresponsible. These people are slow in more ways than one, and they need to get some pep in their step for the Democratic party and head out now, because it'll take them a month to get to those polling locations in time to vote in the mid-terms. As I see it, they're just not moving forward fast enough.
When people scratch their heads and wonder how a campaign based on hectoring your wealthiest supporters expects to turn out voters, the answer is, it doesn't.
What the hell is Obama doing? No one, left or right, has a clue.
This really isn't about lighting a fire under the fragile asses of elderly voters, it's about running out of people to blame for the unbelievable mess he's made, a mess the president in no way will ever take responsibility for.
Consider how Obama's "Blame Game" has progressed over time: Bush's fault; Bush's fault; Fox's fault; Bush's mess; Bush's economy; Bush's fault; Teabagger's fault; Teabagger's fault; Teabagger's fault; Bush's fault; Bush's economy; Fox's fault; Fox's fault; Bush's fault; Bush's mess; Democrat's fault; Democrat's lazy-ass fault; Fox's fault; Old Ladies with walkers fault.
"As everyone can now clearly see, president Obama is nothing but a sociopathic narcissist," said Dr. William Appleby of the Tyson Institute for Political Studies.
"That he's lowered himself so far as to blame my 89-year old Aunt Thelma, who by the way thinks FDR is still president, just shows how sick of a man he really is."
"Please tell President Roosevelt I'm so, so sorry I've let him down" said 89-year old Thelma McIntyre, between tortured gasps for oxygen (Alamy)
