Our Pop-Warner President

Posted: March 23, 2013 at 9:00 am   /   by

One of the really fun, unanticipated benefits of the Obama presidency is the occasional new titles his administration bestows upon some of us.  Remember “Bitter-Clingers?”  That one was certainly fun.  My personal favorite must have been Janet Napolitano’s DHS memo, labeling conservative activists as potential threats to national security.  I actually had a T-shirt made-up saying “Radical Right-Wing Subversive, as labeled by the Department of Homeland Security.”  Ah, memories!

Well last week, Barack himself trotted-out a new-one, via his twitter account:

So now, as a proud bitter-clinger and right-wing subversive, I can add “severe conservative” to my official list of titles!  Imagine how impressive introductions will sound at politically-oriented events:

“..and I’d like you to meet Mr. Gregory Conterio, severely-conservative, bitterly-clinging right-wing subversive.”

All fun aside, I can’t help but to point-out how Mr. Inclusive himself, the great healer of all the social schisms of our nation, has managed to pull-off the exact opposite once more.  Seriously, what is the point of this tweet?  This is the president of our country, of ALL Americans, rubbing the noses of a very large portion of us in the fact that he has shoved his single legislative achievement down our throats.  When have we ever seen a president spike the football like this?  When have we ever had a president so infantile that he couldn’t resist saying “in your FACE!”  “I win, you LOSE!” to his own citizens?  There is no message, no purpose to this tweet, other than that.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is our president, a nine-year-old doing an end zone dance.

Greg Conterio

Gregory Conterio grew-up in the middle of the cornfields of central Illinois, spent 12 years living in the People’s Republic of Los Angeles, and another 15 in Miami, Florida, giving him a first-hand perspective on the rich variability of American culture.  Although formally educated in zoology, he saw opportunity in the then emerging Information technology field 25 years ago, and has remained there ever since, although he denies being an early pioneer in the now fashionable trend of pursuing useless college degrees.  Having an entrepreneurial background, Gregory has long been a staunch advocate of free markets and minimal government intrusion into our lives.  He currently runs a small IT consulting firm based in South Florida, where he resides with his wife of 25 years, his daughter, three Whippets, and an unknown but growing number of chickens, having discovered belatedly the rural lifestyle is not so bad after all.
