    Does anyone recall the first weeks of Barack Obama’s presidency? He was everywhere on the media all the time.

    His constant use of TelePrompters became an instant joke, suggesting he could not say anything unless it was scripted. Indeed, listening to him try to speak without them is a painful process of a very slow selection of words and very long pauses in between.



    In this age of 24/7 news coverage, Barack Obama has managed to make himself ubiquitous to the point of complete inanity

    SNIP:

    After his first press conference he stopped holding them until 309 days later when he addressed the oil spill in the Gulf. It was such a lame performance that his advisors apparently thought a speech from the Oval Office, his first, would make up for that. It didn’t.

    In this age of 24/7 news coverage, Barack Obama has managed to make himself ubiquitous to the point of complete inanity.

    So, I have a bit of advice for him: Shut up, Barack.

    The seas have not ceased to rise because you were elected (as promised) and the Earth has not “healed itself.” Indeed, it is bleeding oil at a prodigious rate, confounding BP’s engineers, all graduates no doubt of the Acme School of Oil Drilling.

    Shut Up, Barack!
