Obama Has Many Human Shields

Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

–“Gimme Shelter” – Rolling Stones

During the recent Gaza war, we heard that Hamas was using civilians as human shields.  They fired rockets from apartment blocks where any Israeli retaliation could kill women and children.  To avoid being hit, Hamas militants hid in their own underground bunkers.

Speaking of self-preservation, President Obama seems to be a master at it.   He needs many human shields because he finds it distressing to hear about anything that could possibly spoil his day.  Sinking a putt doesn’t satisfy when you’re mulling over what to do about a screw-up like Fast and Furious.  It can take the edge off a game of pick-up basketball  if you have to stress about Benghazi.  Isn’t that what the help is for?

So our President was not informed about Fast and Furious, and said “Nah nah nah” while covering his ears if anyone spoke the words “David Petraeus” and “investigation” in his presence.  In fact, President Obama gives a great imitation of Sgt. Schultz, that stalwart of “Hogan’s Heroes,” who reiterated “I know nothing!” when questioned about any matter of importance that could land him in hot water.

This President’s human shields are considerable, but let’s attempt to make a list.  Out front there is that lovable squeeze toy, Jay Carney.  Poke Jay in the stomach and he’ll tell you that Muslim protesters actually don’t have a problem with the United States.  Tug his ear, and he’ll spout, “…this was in response to a video.”  Then there are Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and let’s not forget James Clapper.  On the twelfth day of Christmas there may also be Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod and a partridge in a pear tree.

The five golden rings of the Pentagon come into play as well, with the Joint Chiefs taking responsibility for whatever is getting in the way of military progress in whatever foreign land we’re dabbling in.  Then there’s the CIA’s fallen angel, Gen. David Petraeus, who may soon be joined by another merrymaker, Gen. John Allen.  They can be convivial around the punchbowl with recently fired Gen. Carter Ham and Admiral Charles Gaouette.

Barack Obama’s remarkable ability to shield himself from unwanted info goes way back to the time he sat in Rev. Wright’s church.  He knew nothing of the preacher’s anti-American rants, presumably because Michelle was sitting next to him shielding his ears.  Then, when Barack hung out on the block in Chicago, he didn’t have a clue about former domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn except that Ayers was a college professor and they seemed like such nice folks.  The fact that Bernardine once referred to herself as “a revolutionary Communist” must have been lost on Barack, who was lacking the necessary curiosity or research skills (despite having been President of the Harvard Law Review) to do some checking.  More stuff it was better not to know about.

So next time you hear about Hamas or some other terrorist organization hiding behind human shields, remember that as with most things, our President has it nailed and goes one better.  He has professional mouthpieces, patsies, and spokes-holes to take the hit. Gimme shelter, indeed.

If there is some collateral damage to the President’s assorted toadies and their careers, that’s what they get for the privilege of serving him.  Eat it, Hillary.  Stuff it, Susan Minute-Rice.  You will never be taken seriously again, Carney, but then what carnival barker is?

About stephaniesharf

I'm an independent conservative who writes informative and funny stuff about current events. I attended Emerson College (Boston), got a B.A. in English from UCLA, then to compound the tragedy obtained a Master's in Library Science. I had a long career as a technical editor and reference librarian before realizing that work sucks! Now I'm happily retired and hoping to make you laugh.

  1. I just can’t figure out how any of Obama’s lackeys can maintain any self-respect. They are caught so often in the lies he has them tell that, if they had any self-respect left, they would resign and expose his grand con. It is not hard to see why the Russian Press says Obama was re-elected by America’s illiterates. We have come to the point where a majority are placated by “bread and circuses.” Sad, sad, sad day.

    • You’re thinking on a personal “I have honor doesn’t everyone else” level. You need to think in an “overwhelm the system, the ends justify the means” level. They will just mock people that question and close ranks till the questions pass. They have many peas under many shells and they just keep them moving. All the while they are moving towards their goals and you (we) are left sputtering on the sidelines “but Benghazi” “but Fast and Furious””Jermiah Wright” “Kagan’s conflict of interest” insert scandal here ” “.

  2. And many of the people moving the shells around are “journalists”–the very people who are supposed to hold Obama and his thugs accountable.
