How’s “failure” for pithy? Some word’s can’t be shortened.
You know it’s pretty bad when even the sycophant media can’t find a positive side of it. Even Google can’t find them if they aren’t there. Here was a headline from HuffPo:
“Michelle Obama Ireland Trip: G8 Summit Offers First Lady, Daughters Chance To Explore European Roots ”
Oh yes, those European roots? Good punch line, but I must have missed the set up. (it usually blows the joke) What was she wearing for the homecoming excursion?…always of interest. What does one wear to a post-colonial, homecoming reunion anyway?
After arriving in Belfast with her husband on Monday, Obama crossed the border to Dublin to speak to university experts on the president’s ancestors, attend a show of traditional Riverdance step dancing and visit the nearby Wicklow mountains.
“It’s good to be home,” the first lady told a cheering audience of schoolchildren before the Riverdance performance. “You are surrounded by such a beautiful country.”
Riverdance? Ah yes, how absolutely quaint. Maybe Barry can learn some new moves to sidestep those pesky scandals.
The first lady has enjoyed a steady positive approval rating over the past four years, even at times when her husband sank in the polls.
“I think it would be a good opportunity to introduce someone who accompanied me here today – as I let him travel with me now and again,” she joked in Belfast, before her husband’s speech.
That explains it, enter Michelle’s approvals.
Oh the Summit, no doubt the ‘Outfit’ in Chicago is working on the correct narrative for that. They should roll it out any day now. It was the time zone difference and Obama didn’t get enough sleep, the food was bad and there was a virus going around. Then in the Berlin speech, the sun was in his eyes. (hat tip to Matthews, man he can think quick)
Possibly news has caught up with the gallivanting golfer that 50% of the people do not believe Obama is “honest and trustworthy”. But can they trust him on the golf course?
