I Think We All Saw This Coming

Most of the fine people kicking around the decades that I have remember the inception of  "Jumping the shark" so I won't hark back that far but simply state that President Obama has descended into ridiculousness-he isn't helping his re-election campaign by acting so goofy. You've heard about his 'slow jamming the news' on a late night TV show filmed before a college crowd . Wow. Jimmy Fallon and the President of the United States did a comedy routine. That's hep. Dave Mathews Band charged up the collegiate crowd...who were too young to have heard of the Dave Matthews Band. Short Attention Spa
anyway, President Obama has drawn some friendly fire from liberals for campaigning on a college campus tour on the dime of the American people. He has a near billion dollar war chest, and yet is traveling around the country making a case (as part of his job as complainer-in-chief) before college students that the big bad Republicans want to raise the cost of student loans. Resident Liberal on Foxnews Juan Williams said that the President could have made the same speech from the Oval Office, saving the taxpayers some dough.
Dirty little secret time: the rate hike was passed by the Democrats in 2007 to give them a cudgel with which to bash the Republicans during the 2012 election. Republicans didn't hold Senate or House. Their (and our) bad luck has them gripping the Oval office this year. Senator B. Obama did not vote on the rate hike, as he was what he's doing now-campaigning and complaining. He didn't even vote "Present".

Harking time again. President Nixon was said to keep an "Enemies List". President Obama has kicked it up a notch in the past few, picking fights with:
The state of Arizona
The Catholic Church and affiliated colleges
The people of America
The Supreme Court
Anyone who tells him "NO!"

Come November, the American Chorus of telling President Obama "NO!" will resound from sea to shining sea.

"Jumping the shark is an idiom created by Jon Hein that is used to describe the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. The phrase is also used to refer to a particular scene, episode or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of "gimmick" in a desperate attempt to keep viewers' interest." from the wiki

I stand by my earlier posts where I suggest that President Obama may love the fame of being President, but he is tired of the job; to me he seems conflicted-he wants to win, but he would also love to lose and be able to toss cabbages from the audience. I don't think he's up to another term-he doesn't have the intestinal fortitude for the job.
