When David Ehrenstein coined this term for Barrack Obama he could not have know how accurate it was. Somewhere in the museum of great magicians should be a special place for Obama. He can make unflattering headlines disappear before our very eyes. Not just through intimidation or coordinating with liberal “journalists” but using the cornerstone of magic, the sleight of hand.
Yesterday the American public witnessed one of his tricks during his choreographed appearance to insure the public is focused on a trial that wrapped up a week ago. By changing his tune from “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” to “Trayvon could have been me 35 years ago” he is keeping the public and the media looking at the wrong hand. Those in the media that have caught on have been referring to it as chasing rabbits but it is a trick as old as time, the sleight of hand.
So what exactly is Obama trying to make disappear? What is the ace our three card Monty In Chief is trying to hide? Digging deep into the weeks news reveals the following stories Obama doesn’t want you to read about.
1) IRS scandal: The targeting of Barrack’s enemies went from a few rouge agents in Cincinnati to William Wilkins. Obama’s appointee to oversee the IRS. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324448104578614220949743916.html)
2) Benghazi: In the latest efforts to stonewall the investigation into the attack and death of our ambassador and two others the Department of Defense claimed George Bristol head of Special operations in North Africa at the time was unavailable and retired. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2370621/Pentagon-does-face-key-Benghazi-witness-makes-Marine-colonel-available-talk-Congress.html )
3) Voter fraud: With Obama and his O.F.A. pushing no limits on voter registration the optics of an Obama supporter getting five years for voter fraud is not in the liberal interest. (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/07/17/cincinnati-illegal-voting/2530119/)
4) Obamacare: As more and more of those that supported it realize they should have read it they want off this thrill ride. (http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2013/07/19/union-fears-destructive-consequences-from-obamacare/?mod=WSJBlog)
As with any sleight of hand timing is everything. Obama chose Friday to make his remarks to insure the nation would talk this weekend about an unsuccessful prosecution and not his failures as a President. Is there any other reason the leader of the free world would inject himself into a situation he had nothing to do with or no control over. Did Ronald Regan inject himself into the Bernard Goetz verdict? Did our first “black” president Clinton claim OJ resembles the son he never owned up to? Did the administrations favorite whipping boy Bush even mention the Robert Blake trial?
David Copperfield’s best trick was making the statue of Liberty disappear, Siegfried and Roy tigers, neither one can compete with Obama making his incompetence disappear before his adoring fans.
Special note to readers: No discussion of Barrack the Magic Negro would be complete without Paul Shanklin’s parody to the tune of Puff the Magic Dragon. (http://www.metacafe.com/watch/575124/barack_the_magic_negro/)
