Oh Brother– AP Insists Ditherer Obama Is Like Spock
Except, of course, that Mr. Spock did not have this kook as his mentor:
The Associated Press insists that the ditherer and waffler in the White House and former ACORN organizer is like Mr. Spock.
FOX Nation reported on the latest AP propaganda piece:
He shows a fascination with science, an all-too deliberate decision-making demeanor, an adherence to logic and some pretty, ahem, prominent ears.
They all add up to a quite logical conclusion, at least for “Star Trek” fans: Barack Obama is Washington’s Mr. Spock, the chief science officer for the ship of state.
“I guess it’s somewhat unusual for a politician to be so precise, logical, in his thought process,” actor Leonard Nimoy, who has portrayed Spock for more than 40 years, told The Associated Press in an e-mail interview. “The comparison to Spock is, in my opinion, a compliment to him and to the character.”
Obama’s Spock-like qualities have started to cause him political problems in real world Washington. Critics see him as too technocratic, too deliberative, too lacking in emotion.
Obama’s protracted decision-making on a new war strategy in Afghanistan, for example, prompted criticisms that he’s too deliberate. Former Vice President Dick Cheney, former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and other conservatives faulted Obama for “dithering.”
While it’s the slow decision making that has conservatives upset, especially when it comes to national security, it’s the science content of the presidential agenda that have the geeks insisting he’s gone where no nerd has gone before.
Obama was a lawyer, organizer and author before he turned politician. So his interest in science wasn’t as obvious until he reached the White House. Now, privately he’s known to relish the ability to call smart people, especially scientists, to come to the White House to talk about their fields. The more obscure and complicated the field, the better to feed the inner science geek.
Obama “relishes the ablity to call smart people” to come talk about their fields.
That’s why the most frequent visitor to the White House is the SEIU’s Andy Stern, a radical socialist.
