Brutally bam-tastic! #ObamaExcuses: The Obama presidency summed up in one hashtag

It’s totally not Obama’s fault! He’s just not that into you, world. As Twitchy readers know, President Pass-the-Buck offered up a number of absurd remarks on Syria on Wednesday. He not only said that it is Congress‘ credibility on the line (unprecedented jackassery!) but he also claimed to have never drawn the red line. The mockery was swift and sure, including a side-splitting Photoshop that author Brad Thor called “so wrong.”

Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto helped kick off more righteous slamming with #ObamaExcuses:

Aching sides! Other Twitter users got in on the hilarious action:


Presidenting is hard!

Ha! Because, racist!

Twitter recently captured the Obama presidency in one “slacker summation” photo. Taranto swoops back in for the win to do the same. He summed up the Obama presidency in a snark-tastic nutshell.



‘Damn’! Slacker summation: Obama presidency captured in one photo

‘LOL!’ Have you seen the ‘Blurred Red Lines’ Photoshop Brad Thor calls ‘so wrong and NSFW’?

‘Whose Red Line Is It, Anyway?’ Ha! Jake Tapper suggests movie, zings Obama

‘What rhymes with bomb me?’ Obama’s #BlurredRedLines coming soon to iTunes?

‘Epic’! Iowahawk wins with ‘good times’ reminder, instant classic Obama nickname

Obama on the ‘red line’: I didn’t draw that. Somebody else made that happen.

    I’m just sooooo confused about this “red line” thing and whose it is. I mean, there’s the red line on a hockey rink which other than dividing the ice lengthwise is these days irrelevant. Then there’s the Red Line on the CTA transit in Chicago which can take you from Wrigley Field to “Cominskey” Field, a decidedly irrelevant ride this baseball season. There’s the red line of “red lining” known as refusing home mortgages in poor financial risk neighborhoods–oh no wait, Obumuh’s buddy Clinton and the Dembeciles erased that red line, didn’t they? And there’s the red line on an engine gauge indicating the safety limit for operating the engine beyond which you risk permanent damage or catastrophic failure–well, Obumuh has long since passed that safety limit on our country’s financial engine.

    So which Red Line is Obumuh referring to? And is this kind of like his March 2012 side comment to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he’d have “more flexibility” after his “last election”?

    My late mother, whenever she would do something that she herself recognized in retrospect may not have been the best course of action, and then was called on it, would jokingly say, “Hey– I’m all right; it’s the world that’s crazy!”

    Sadly, Massa Prez uses the same justification she did, only without the wink and nod of irony while doing it.

      My mum used to say. “everybody’s out of step but me” also with the undercurrent of irony.

        The only issue – it’s too small to contain all the barrack emanating from this regime.

        And it needs a Red Line when you lean Forward.

    I am wondering what shade of red the line is drawn. Maybe the red line that Assad crossed is a different shade, the shade the world chose. Bronco’s shade is different don’t you see. So its not his line that was crossed, it’s the world’s. Yeah, that’s my story.

  • nickdqwk

    How different is this scenario, the U.S. goes to war with Mexico because the rebel cartels need our assistance, “Fast and Furious” just wasn’t adequate.

    Does Barack know that everyone is pointing and laughing.

        But they crack once they realize that people are. Narcissists of his magnitude have huge breakdowns when this happens since their feeble minds and egos aren’t strong enough to handle it. This usually resulting in temper tantrums or fits of rage – hence the desire to attack Syria in order to save his ego. President Ego Maniac is not who you want having the nuclear launch codes

    Obama reminds me of this little girl back when I was 8 myself and growing up in Mexico. There was this American Idol style show for kids and this little girl had a song about the “wonderful” things she would do if she were president. Even as an 8 year old I still would question her “wonderful” ideas that for me sounded ridiculous and, of course, childish.

    Anyway, I’m guessing Big 0 may have had a similar daydream back when he was a kid but now adult reality is meeting his childish ideas (and behavior) head on.

    You decide:

    “We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on
    the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical
    weapons moving around or being utilized,” the president said. “That would change
    my calculus. That would change my equation.” –Barack Hussein Obama

    Have You Ever Noticed That…
    If you are not leaning, no one can let you down.
    The harder you work, the luckier you get.
    Whatever you assume to be true will become true for you.
    You must give up the way it is…to have it the way you want it.
    There is no growth without discontent before it starts.
    You get treated in life the way you train people to treat you.
    If you don’t make a choice, someone will choose for you.
    Your success is measured by your ability to complete things.
    It’s not enough to aim, you must hit.
    The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.
    Don’t know the author of the above, yet have passed out copies of it to many because all they have ever known are excuses.

    Breaking news: Chuck Hagel re-writes soldier’s oath:

    “I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the ego of the President of the United States against all haters and climate change deniers and dissers, foreign and domestic, but especially domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same unless something goes wrong, in which case I will say it was my fault and that the buck stops with me; and that I will obey the whims of the President of the United States and the orders of the politicized community organizers appointed over me, according to whatever laws the President thinks need to be obeyed at any given moment. So help me Obama.”

    The Obama rodeo clown had more integrity than the “real” Obama.

  • Terry

    In his Sweden speech, Obama didn’t just blame the world, he specifically called out blame on the AMERICANS, as if he isn’t one of us. I recall how ticked I got when he went around the world apologizing for me and my country-mates. Now he’s blaming us for something he caused??? Dude needs to stfu and sit down. I suggest they remove all funds from his travel budget until the end of his term. They can blame it on sequester to stroke his ego, if they must.

  • Guest

    In a few months, when the wheels come off Obamacare;
    guess who will be denying EVER having had ANYTHING to do with it,
    simultaneously blaming the Republicans…
    with the unfailing support of his supine media.
