• Captain Redbeard: Did You Know Obama Doesn’t Dig Politics?

    President Barack Obama isn’t a fan of “theatrics” … or so claims Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd.

    Funny how Captain Redbeard landed his new NBC gig just in time to pimp his new book about the wonders of Barack, isn’t it? But I digress.

    Obama is arguably one of the most theatrical presidents of all time, being that he’s mostly words and little, if any, action where it matters most. But that’s not quite the image Chuckie paints of him in “The Stranger.”

    Behind-the-scenes politics is something — I think he doesn’t like it, and if you don’t like it, then it’s hard to be good at something you don’t like,” proclaimed Chuck. “And I think he just simply doesn’t like it. He thinks it’s silly and some of these games, that’s perfectly rational. But as president, you sometimes have to participate in the silly.”

    Well that all sounds well and good…except for the fact that it’s Obama himself who launches many of these polarizing fights that Todd writes off as “silly games.” Executive amnesty, anyone? Barack Obama is not a “participant in the silly” — he’s the leader of the “silly” parade.

    But don’t expect to read that anywhere in “The Stranger.”
