More of that “potential” thing

Obama award for transparency presented at a secret meeting.

“I don’t feel moved today to say ‘thank you, Mr. President,’” said Steve Aftergood, the director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists. But he said he understands the award to be “aspirational,” in recognition of Obama’s potential to do more on the transparency front.

Do you know what you call people who the best thing you can say about them is that they have potential?

    We’re giving awards for potential, now? Hell, I have lots of potential. My elementary school teachers all told me so.

    So, when are we going to start giving out awards to people who have the potential to be a massive failure? Obama would get that one (behind closed doors no doubt)

    Giving Barry an award for Transparency is like Giving Him the Nobel Peace Prize for his “Potential” to bring about “World Peace” after just 10 days in office. By the way, oh Anointed One, how much Transparency and World Peace is there when you tell the World that we are Bombing Khaddafi as an “Emergency Response Humanitarian Mission”, when we now KNOW that you authorized the CIA to Overthrow the LIbyan Gov’t WEEKS ago? Did you also have a hand in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Jordan, Yeman, Syria, etc.? And why are you supporting “Rebels” who are linked to Al-Queda? It looks like you, oh Anointed One, are DELIBERATELY trying to DECREASE Stability in the Middle East, and are supporting Radicals who want to take over Mecca, and then march on Jerusalem. For what purpose are you acting like a Sleeper Agent of some Unholy Conglomeration of the Commies and the Islamists?

    Too bad the Lamestream Media won’t ask these questions, but I guess they like being ‘Useful Tools”.

    JoePa quote: “Potential ain’t worth shit!”

    Of course, I wouldn’t expect anyone in the current administration to understand anything about football. Or even know what it is. They were elected by folks who watch the Superbowl for the commercials, and the next day can’t even tell you who won – but can certainly talk ad infinitum about the best commercial.

    All image. No substance.
