Child Emperor’s White House As Nervous As A Virgin At A Prison Rodeo Over Latest WikiLeaks Bombshells

Der Spiegel quoted the State Department as saying that President Barack Obama “prefers to look East rather than West,” and “has no feelings for Europe”.  That’s the last sentence in a two-page article at The Nation.

With statements like the one above, is it any wonder that our American Child Emperor is bracing himself for the body blows sure to come his way from the latest document dump from WikiLeaks?

Toby Harnden, writing for The Telegraph, succinctly portrays the diplomatic cables this way:

“The ramifications for Mr. Obama could be enormous. With his popularity flagging at home, one of his remaining political strengths has been his high standing abroad—assiduously cultivated in a series of speeches in which he apologized for past U.S. actions and promised a kinder, gentler America.”  He further added, “He was the type of American president, apparently straight from a West Wing episode, that Europeans had dreamed of.”

It is fair to say now, as it has been for the past two years, that America’s Child Emperor has no clothes.  The reason I quote Harnden here is because his observations about this president and this administration are candid.  America’s corporate-controlled media habitually treats facts with imagination.  Reality bites and doesn’t let go. “The Messiah” they helped to elect and failed miserably at vetting is proving to be a monumental lapse in their collective judgment.  Harnden does not pander to his readers.

Harnden points out that during the 2008 election campaign, a cable written by Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the British ambassador to Washington, was leaked to The Daily Telegraph.

In it, Sir Nigel noted that Obama “does betray a highly educated and upper middle class mindset,” that he was “maybe aloof, insensitive” at times and that charges of elitism were “not entirely unfair”.

The assessment about his personality has been borne out over time but the Obama operation despised leaks, was highly protective of Obama’s carefully-crafted life “narrative” and extremely sensitive to any criticism. Now the shoe is on the other foot.

Here’s the money quote from Harnden:  “Once the WikiLeaks release happens, Mr. Obama will no doubt offer emollient words and reassurance. Unfortunately for him, however, he is likely to find that the power of his words will now be greatly diminished abroad as well as at home.”
