“Being There” a Remake of a Movie Now in Wash. D.C

I don't know whether you remember the Peter Seller's classic movie called, “Being There” (1979), about an unassuming gardener who is mistaken for a brilliant philosopher, but it seems we have an actual remake of that movie going on right now in Wash. D.C.

Although people will criticize me for making a comparison between President Obama and the Peter Sellers character, Chancey Gardner, it was too obvious a connection, to me, not to make it into my column which I am now presenting to you. Besides, we, in America, have a 1st Amendment right to make a comment(s) on anything and anyone within reason. I am exercising that right.

Over the past two years, we have seen what a total lack of vetting by the media, pundits, and the Democrat Party can do when they “tie their wagon” to a candidate with a total lack of experience in all areas of governing, domestically, economically, in foreign affairs and in the presidency of the United States itself.

This guy, Obama, according to his most ardent followers, cannot do any wrong, and no amount of evidence of his “screw-ups” on his part can change their minds. He is a genius, he is profound, and he's the smartest man in the world, and on and on and on as the platitudes drip from their lips in describing their “Messiah”, Barack Hussein Obama.

As Chancey Gardner (Peter Sellers character) went around Wash. D.C. making statements that made no sense whatsoever, the more profound his statements became to the “intelligentsia” and the more they clamored for more statements from this illiterate person who they deemed a genius. If you are in a gathering of Obama “Kool-Aid” drinkers and supporters, the same statements that were made about Chancey Gardner are made about Obama even though most people don't know where he is coming from, policy wise. His incoherent policy statements (which he always seems to say, “Let me be perfectly clear”) toward Israel, the Middle East, energy, health care, jobs, and “Final Four” basketball predictions, are just examples of how supposedly educated people can get caught up into the human phenomenon of “idol and cult” worship. As Bill O'Reilly says after every show, “The spin stops here”, the Obama cultists always use the “spin” to make what Obama says and does more palatable than it really is. The “spin “ goes on 24/7 each and every day all year round. My answer to these poor souls is that, “You can't polish horse manure”, but, alas, it is like talking to a brick wall. To be honest, not everyone who voted for Obama in 2008 is still with the program. Many after the past 2 years have had “buyers remorse” and have seen the light, for they now realize that they bought a “pig in a poke” when they voted for him and his “hope and change” B.S. in 2008.

If any of you get a chance, get a copy of the Peter Seller's film, “Being There”, and see if a connection can be made between Chancey Gardner and Barack Hussein Obama. You might be surprised and your head might just nod in agreement.

"Being There" was a cautionary tale on the tendency of people to see what they want to see in a person, not what that person really is.
The same can be said for Obama. Most people know he is a phony, but they don't want to admit it as they are more interested in retaining power than what is good for the country.

"If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you're not a racist, you'll have to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you're not an idiot."
