What’s Obama Distracting Us From Now?

After demanding that Obama do something, anything, to counteract ISIS in Iraq, the right is now — of course — claiming that Obama is only doing so in order to distract attention from…well, whatever they want to focus attention on instead. Here’s Rush Limbaugh’s inane take on it:

"You're right. He does seem to have a grudge against the economy, and want to ..."

Hannity Shows the Usual Right Wing ..."
"Who would've thought? The one method the Republicans have never tried! These liberals, I tell ..."

Davis May Face Gay Man She ..."
"I’m surprised he didn’t execute all eight turkeys pardoned by Obama."

The Vileness of Christian Right Support ..."

    It’s almost as though they aren’t arguing in Good Faith.

  • dingojack

    Obama’s just attacking the ‘Islamic State’ to take the focus off the usual cast of right-wing ‘media’ blow-hards.

    And doesn’t Rush hate it?

    Yeah, saving tens of thousands of people, including children, stranded on a barren mountaintop without supplies and surrounded by proto-republicans who have sworn to kill them, is clearly a distraction. Whatever it is Obama is distracting from, that thing he’s distracting from is obviously more important.

    I’ve been traveling and not connected to the news — but it appears that all of the conflicts in the Middle East are over. Don’t know when or how, but there’s nary a mention of it anywhere. So, good job whoever made that happen.

    On the other hand, Robin Williams died.

    It’s not like Obama’s trying to deal with the legacy of the Bush administration, or anything.

  • howardhershey

    That would be ‘surrounded by proto-Republicans’ who have been convinced that the people on the mountaintop are Satanists who deserve death in order to prevent them from despoiling the One True Religion.

    The president is obviously trying to distract us from the way George W. Bush suckered the country into war with Iraq — which is why Limbaugh keeps bringing it up.

  • scienceavenger

    Fox News “reporters” have claimed that Obama arranged all the World Cup coverage and the incidents in Iraq as distractions, among many other only-slightly-less-silly claims. For people who ridicule Obama supporters for supposedly thinking him a Messiah, they sure act like he’s omnipotent.

    Here’s my theory: The Obama administration killed Robin Williams to distract attention from the race war Obama is trying to start by having Michael Brown killed, which he did to distract attention from the Gaza conflict, which he started to distract attention from ISIS, which he created to distract attention from the border crisis, which he created to distract attention from his conspiracy to stir up trouble in Ukraine, which he did to distract attention from Benghazi, which was a false-flag attack intended to distract attention from Obamacare, which he created to distract attention from … whatever happened before that.

    I think you nailed it, Georgia, with just a minor flaw. You didn’t mention distracting attention away from Acorn and vote stealing and the fake birth certificate. Work those in and you’ll have blown this conspiracy wide open.

    Keep your eyes pealed for unmarked vans sitting outside your home, however. Obama and his jack-booted FEMA thugs play for keeps.

  • D. C. Sessions

    It’s almost as though they aren’t arguing in Good Faith.

    Modus, that’s one of the silliest things you’ve written here. Which, considering, is saying a lot.

    Of course they’re arguing in Good Faith. They’re Christians, and that’s the only Good Faith there is!

    Obamacare was to distract from the birth certificate! It does get hard to keep track but the important thing to remember is it all comes back to the birth certificate and that Obama is not really the legitimate President But a gay, Islamic, satanist, communist, Marxist, Kenyan, Indonesian, crack smoking, dictator, child molester, robot, alien, spy, impostor. That’s the important thing, it’s simple really. Oh and it’s not because he’s black.

  • D. C. Sessions

    Georgia, it’s pretty good but really should end with a loop back to one of the others. Probably Benghazi.

  • Kevin Kehres

    You forgot the Illuminati, Agenda 21, and the lizard people…but otherwise spot on.

  • Georgia Sam

    > Larry, Sessions, Aspect, Kevin: Good points all. And the Syrian civil war probably fits in there somewhere. And yeah, there is probably is at least one feedback loop in the sequence. That’s the kind of thing a devious evil genius would do to.

    don’t be silly, Georgia! that makes this needlessly complex.

  • busterggi

    Its all part of Obama’s brilliant Byzantine plan to keep us from realizing how stupid and incompetent he is.
