Article calls Obama ‘aloof’; Libs scramble to cry ‘dog whistle’ for ‘uppity’

Oh, good grief! Ron Fournier penned an article for The National Journal, titled “The Perils of Being Aloof,” in which he theorizes that good schmoozing can make a good presidency.

FDR mixed drinks. Clinton flattered Newt. Lincoln courted 13th Amendment rivals. Can #Obama schmooze? bit.ly/ZleQxR Does he need to?

As we know, Obama is arrogant; his hubris knows no bounds. He often acts as if the presidency is beneath him and totally boring.

@alexparkerdc Very good question. And how much better could he be if he liked it?

— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) January 8, 2013

You give us too much credit, sir. RT @johnburnsnc: @ron_fournier Washington is one big ninth grade, isn’t it?

— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) January 8, 2013

Heh. President Popularity Contest fits in there. And he does like to schmooze … if it means canoodling with all the purty people in Hollywood and the like.

Read Fournier’s article and decide on its merits yourself. In the meantime, feast your eyes on what the absurd Left took from it. Media Matters’ Willis offers the old “he won.”

Obama, so “aloof” and unable to connect he won back to back popular vote majorities.

Boehlert mumbles something about how “bipartisan” President Obama is for nominating Hagel.

Obama just nominated a REPUBLICAN and yr lecturing him to be more bipartisan? whatever; RT @ron_fournier: @ericboehlert bit.ly/ZleQxR

He must be parroting the always pitiful Politico, who claimed the same thing: Hagel nod shows Obama’s “bipartisan spirit.” Hilarious.

But, of course, there’s more. What does aloof really mean? It’s a “dog whistle,” natch. The latest entry in the Handbook of Racial Code Words? Aloof.

You must hate having a black POTUS. RT @ron_fournier: Perils of Being Aloof: What Obama Should Learn from the Greats: bit.ly/Zl3ZE0

@jbouie so @ron_fournier thinks Hagel & Obama are uppity?

— Jordan (@jordanbks) January 7, 2013

Shorter @ron_fournier : Chuck Hagel is too much like that uppity nigra Obama and the Beltway doesn’t like it.

— Ken (@Kennymack1971) January 7, 2013

“Aloof” means “Uppity” in Beltwayspeak. Just sayin.

@asiangrrlmn they say ‘aloof’ because ‘uppity’ would get them punched in the nuts @eclecticbrotha

@lolgop “Aloof” and “arrogant” are republican euphemisms for “uppity”.

— Sarah Waites (@Addicted2Poli) January 8, 2013

Yep. “@ritaag: @arrogantdemon @liberalphenom @eclecticbrotha @nerdywonka Aloof is the new Uppity”

— Journey (@PupsherLive) January 8, 2013

@liberalphenom @nerdywonka @jbouie @ron_fournier :aloof = “I’m not gonna put up with people not serieous about solving problems” AKA “uppity

— Black Intellect (@Blk_Intellect) January 8, 2013

Shorter @ron_fournier : Uppity, uppity, uppity…oh, I can’t say that anymore? Aloof, aloof, aloof.

— Phillip Seiler (@javamanphil) January 8, 2013

@stevebenen I just tweeted on that piece. Is aloof code for uppity?

— James Field (@UUJames) January 8, 2013

@ron_fournier “Aloof”? Don’t you mean “Uppity”? The racist, nihilist, crazy opposition is fine with you?

— BWD (@theonlyadult) January 8, 2013

Fournier is not alone. Sen. Graham and Joe Scarborough are blowing that dog whistle, too!

“How dare Obama choose whoever he wants to serve on his own cabinet! This President needs to stop acting so uppity” – What Sen. Graham means

Sigh. Tommy Christopher, of course.

Really, now this is just sad. The lame predictability is embarrassing. And the racism of the Left is disgusting. They, and only they, see President Obama as black only. Every single thing in the world revolves around the color of Obama’s skin. If that isn’t racist, what is?
