Breakfast Scramble: Hope Dopes

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

Dumbo kicks off re-election campaign, and Clifton B. has the jingo of very young campaign, from Another Black Conservative [1]:

Calling All Remaining Hope Dopes: Obama launches reelection with video

[…]

It looks like “Yes We Can” has morphed into “I Need You, Man”! The video seems to be a call to all remaining true supporters. We should not be surprised about that, after two years of broken promises and lackluster performance, the aura of Hope and Change could never make a come back.

Could be a dopey campaign.   The Dopes for Hope versus those for the Dope from Hope, Mike Huckabee.

Hat tip and more:  Ed Morrissey, Hot Air [2]:

This time around, Obama has to run on the status quo, and given the circumstances, that’s a losing position.

Honey where is my Viagra, Roger Simon Edition, transcript:

ROGER SIMON, CHIEF POLITICAL COLUMNIST, POLITICO: Yes, and that’s a good thing. We’re supposed to be openly skeptical.

The bloom isn’t entirely off the rose between Obama and the press, but reporters are starting to concentrate more than ever on what he says rather than how he says it. We will stipulate that he’s the greatest orator of modern times, but now we’re looking beyond that in every speech for what he’s actually telling us.

Putting the tack into Simon, the Sharp Tack, Clarice Feldman destroys Simon, from American Thinker [4]:

Why Does He Rely Over Much on the Teleprompter?

Simple. Neither one of them can think and talk (or write) at the same time, so one types the words in on the teleprompter and the other reads them. Proof of this is that on those occasions when there’s been a glitch in the teleprompting whichever Obama twin is speaking is struck immediately dumb.

Watch and see what I’m talking about:

Video:

Further reax, Michelle [5]:

Obama announced his bid for the presidency in February of 2007, so it’s only been more than four years. The media needs time to pace themselves. Besides, in 2008 Simon & friends were too busy digging into Sarah Palin’s qualifications to be a heartbeat away from the presidency to worry about sorting through Obama’s qualifications to be president.

Especially enjoyable is the part in the above interview where Simon essentially said, “We’re going to get back to basics and not be so biased — hey, did I mention that Obama’s the greatest orator in modern times?”

Without the aid a teleprompter, Obama is incoherent and rather stupid, more Michelle: [6]

* Last May, he claimed that Kansas tornadoes killed a whopping 10,000 people [7]: “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas.  Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” The actual death toll: 12.

Later.
