Is Obama Actually A Puppet On A String?

We seem to go round and round again these days on whether candidates have ear pieces (and these days they can be impossible to detect since some can simply be a patch or something near the ear). I think many pols are wired to a back room of puppeteers.

The Anchoress put me onto this interesting blunder by “Babbling Barack”, who seems to be talking to the ethers as he gets lost and flashes that ‘deer in the headlights’ look:

Say it ain’t so Barack! Watch it a couple of times as be pauses after his mangled line. He looks left for a split second, indicating which ear he is talking to. He is not talking to the audience, he is not looking at anyone in front of him. And he is totally ‘off the stage’ mentally when he is talking. So either he has a line to God, or he has an ear piece.

I think I prefer the ‘wink’ look over the ‘I’m lost’ look

    Just thought I would google smallest earpiece here is one that is about 1/3 the size of a dime …http://www.wintec.ru/

    Yet – it won’t make any difference – The media would never go there (unless your last name is PALIN – Reuters asked if the the VP candidates ear canals would be examined!!!)

    The bias has now reached the SCARY stage. If Obama wins – they will begin procedures to shut down talk radio …

    That is a way-too-vacant look he gives for a moment there. I think it was probably a probably with the teleprompter, though.

    I heard something about Barack Obama that I found interesting. It seems that back in 1991 he was one of the lawyers that brought the case..Buyck-Roberson vs Ciitibank Federal Savings Bank. It was decided in 1994. The contention of the plaintiffs was that Citibank was discriminating against certain people by not giving them loans. This would have been during Barack’s community organizing period. The decision lead to the Clinton administration push in 1995 to have changes made to lending requirements.

    And we all know where that lead to.

    I think Kurtz wrote something about this in NRO or somewhere. But I think there might be something here that could hurt Barack if we had a real press and not this Obama fan club masquerading as a news media.

    It might be worth looking into.

  4. They have already changed and cut out the part where he looks down and you know he is talking to someone!

  5. This is a coup de tat and we just sit back and watch it happen

    If there is a puppet-master, it is Tom Daschle, who, along with Dick Durbin, convinced Obama to seek the 2008 nomination. At the time, I figured it was Daschle’s way of stopping Hillary as a way to keep another Clinton from losing the Dem majorities in Congress. That was one reason I vowed in late 2007 I’d vote for any Republican (except Giuliani) if Hillary won the nomination. If it had turned into a Hillary v Giuliani election, I had decided to seek asylum in another country.

    Daschle recently speculated that whoever wins has a 50/50 chance of being a one-term president because of the fiscal disaster, and that was before this current economic distress. (I always try to not sound like Dr. Doom since confidence is 90% of the problem)

    Now that I have seen the hyper-partisanship of Pelosi and Reid, Frank, Dodd, and Schumer (and still wish Chuck Hagel/Judd Gregg were running for president because they both actually understand the economy and know the “country north of Israel” is called Lebanon – Biden’s actual debate senior moment that no one else noticed), I try to reassure myself that, if Obama does win, it is Daschle who is the puppet-master. Better Daschle than the anti-war left, who celebrate forty+ years of consistently ‘really scary!’. I assume Daschle can at least change a light bulb without 301 advisors.

    Does the American public care who this man is?

    He has a pattern of associations that is very revealing. Read at “American Thinker” or Freerepublic”

    Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes will discuss the close relationship between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi – Palestinian supporter and the professor at Columbia University – on a special broadcast of “Hannity’s America” which will air tomorrow night at 9:00 PM eastern time. Khalidi is a former professor at the University of Illinois and was a close friend of Barack Obama and his wife Michelle. At a farewell dinner for Khalidi before he took the Columbia job, Obama ‘s speech was filled with glowing praise for his friend, including references to the many meals they had shared. He thanked Khalidi…

    To answer your question AJ yes he is a puppet.

    Now the answer to whom is pulling the strings.

    It is a power pair from Chicago.

    The newly sainted Bill Ayers who is taking over his daddies franchise as king maker and her royal power broker of kings Penny Pritzker.

    Give an able assist award to Valerie B. Jarrett also in the mix and you have a good starting point for more study.

    In case some are not familiar with Ms Pritzker , she is of Hyatt family fame and a controlling force behind her families operation of Superior Bank ,the failed Chicago financial institution created out of the S&L crash, that was the proving grounds in the early 90s for sub prime mortgages and the inventor of the concept of mortgage backed securities we all hear so much about now.

    So tell me what are the odds the 12th richest person or family in the US would stoop to be the finance manager for Obama on his campaign staff.

    A campaign now riddled with questionable donations including those from the Gaza Strip and other exotic locations.

    Very interesting.

    There were a couple of moments like this in the debate.

    I haven’t looked up the videos to find the specific instances that I am referring to, but I remember thinking that Obama appeared to be looking off to his left and kind of “out there”.

    I remember thinking that he looked like he was referencing a cue card. I sort of dismissed that until you did this post.

    I will see if I can find the video of the debate so that you can evaluate what I am talking about.

    As shown by his Teleprompter, Obama can not speak without some form of assistance. Watch video and see for yourself.

    He tells an audience member to hold on, he can’t hear himself.


  15. sbd says:

    Statements like this one probably prompted the hidden earpiece.

    Here is Obama saying he has visited 57 states, but his staff did not let him visit the other 2 Alaska and Hawaii!!
