Barry “Almighty” recently took a few jabs at the Republican nominee on Tuesday, telling Donald Trump to “stop whining [about rigged elections] and go try to make his case to get votes.” Barry was responding to Trump’s completely logical allegation that “the press has created a rigged system and poisoned the minds of the voters.” That’s beyond true and anyone who has read the Wikileaks e-mail dump, or been alive for the last 50 years, can attest to the media being in the pocket of the Democrat Party. But what about Barry himself? Has he not proved himself to be quite the whiner, and on more than one occasion? I think the cartoon, by the great A.F. Branco, at the top of this post sums up the truth rather nicely.
But in an attempt to refresh everyone’s memory how about we take a quick little journey down memory lane by doing a rundown of just a few of those occasions where Barry was guilty of doing a bit of his own ‘whining.’
Like the time when Barry blamed George Bush for the rise of ISIS. I’m sure everyone remembers when Barry said, “ISIL is a direct outgrowth of Al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion, which is an example of unintended consequences which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”
Or, how about the time Barry blamed Fox News and Rush Limbaugh for Washington gridlock. Remember when he said, “The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think.”
And who can forget the time that Barry blamed “right-wing radio” for threatening his legacy. You know, when he said, “I mean, we have been hearing this story for decades: tales about welfare queens, talking about takers, talking about the ’47 percent’. It’s the story that is broadcast every day on some cable news stations, on right-wing radio. It’s pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America, and right here in Elkhart. And if you’re hearing that story all the time, you start believing it.” And then added, “It’s no wonder people think big government is the problem.”
And then there was the time Barry blamed the “bitter clingers” for being against him. When he said, “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.” And then said, “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
The time when Barry blamed the Tea Party, blamed the Tea Party, whom he mocked as “tea-baggers,” for not taking his health care plan “seriously.”
And then the time Barry actually blamed the rise of terrorism on climate change. That was the time he said, “Understand, climate change did not cause the conflicts we see around the world. Yet, what we also know is that severe drought helped create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram.” And then said, “It’s now believed that drought and crop failures and high food prices helped fuel the early unrest in Syria, which descended into civil war in the heart of the Middle East.” And finally said, “Climate change increases the risk of instability and conflict.”
So even after all that he still has the nerve to stand there and accuse Trump of whining? As far as I’m concerned Barry’s little tantrum is nothing more than the pot calling the kettle black. I mean how juvenile can a grown man behave? But those who have been paying attention over the years will be aware of the fact that Barry has a rather long history of such sophomoric behavior. Like the time he thought it would be so very presidential to display his schlong to the female reporters around him and to go to great lengths to make sure all those present we able to get a good view. Behavior I’m quite sure that both his daughters would approve of, right? And behavior I’ve yet to hear has been seen coming from Donald Trump.
