Better Stuff to Do

May 4th, 2011

A follow-up to Obama’s Been Leadin’, They’ve Been Lyin’, inspired by Trash talk: Why is our discourse driven by buffoons? (Kathleen Parker, Washington Post 4/29/11) and  Ultimately, birthers take a hit too (Washington Post 5/03/11).

“We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers… We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do.” – President Obama 4/27/11 announcing release of his long-form birth certificate

“[J]ust recently, in an episode of Celebrity Apprentice at the steakhouse, the men’s cooking team cooking did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks.  And there was a lot of blame to go around.  But you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership.  And so ultimately, you didn’t blame Lil’ Jon or Meatloaf.  You fired Gary Busey. And these are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night.  Well handled, sir. Well handled.” – President Obama to The Donald 4/30/11 at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner

“While some Republicans were talking about Obama’s birth certificate, Obama was preparing bin Laden’s death certificate.” – Republican Peter King, who to his credit never subscribed to Birtherism

Obama said he had better stuff to do.

Now we know what he was referring to.

While the far right was spinning out conspiracies and lies,

Obama was tracking down and acting against the bad guys.

The contrast between Obama and the buffoons couldn’t be clearer.

I hope the voters remember that as the 2012 elections get nearer.
