OMG, Obama is, like, so totally hip!

OMG, Obama is, like, so totally hip!

The MSM droolfest has reached a fever pitch in this new article. If you’re feeling kind of queasy today, you might want to skip reading it. And Michelle recommends it… but only if you feel like losing around 50 IQ points.

Here’s a few highlights:

Barack Hussein Obama is the nation’s first hip president.

… “Being hip is being able to navigate your environment and others’ environments,” like the way Obama traverses racial boundaries, said John Leland, author of the definitive book “Hip: The History.”

“Obama has this awareness that other presidents haven’t had. He’s white, and he’s black. He’s an elitist, and he’s regular folk. He’s not pinned down to a perspective.”

Young is to hip as old is to fogey — an essential characteristic. Obama has modern instincts and attitudes that appeal to younger people, and more than any other president in recent memory, that makes him a role model. He is green, open, athletic, tech-savvy, healthy. And his hip image certainly isn’t hurt by his wife, who is so obviously cool — setting trends (Sleeveless! Tending her own garden!), confidently mingling with superstars, gracing magazine covers coast to coast.

… [H]e begged to bring his BlackBerry into the Oval Office, a signal that he intends to remain in touch with the 21st century. Very hip!

Once he settled into the White House, the hip parade didn’t subside. Early guests included pop artists Stevie Wonder (a campaign supporter), Alicia Keys, Will.i.am and Sheryl Crow — but also Sweet Honey in the Rock, a group of socially and politically active a capella singers with an indie, underground vibe.

Obama strutted onto Jay Leno’s stage and plopped down on the couch, making him the first sitting president to do that. He unveiled his March Madness basketball bracket from the Oval Office. And speaking of basketball, who missed the sight of POTUS dressed in all black, sitting courtside at a Bulls-Wizards game with a cup of beer and high-fiving a trash-talking fan? How hip was that?!

It’s so hip that school kids in Albany, N.Y., coined a term for it: “Baracking.” And it doesn’t stop there. Those in the know at Albany High greet each other by saying: “What’s up, my Obama?” and they respond to a sneeze with “Barack you.” Misbehavior is peer-corrected with the admonition, “Barack’s in the White House,” which translates, “Show some respect.”

… The implication was that if you were not on board, you were not hip — you were square. And who wants to be so uncool as to be on the wrong side of the hip president, other than a few vocal anti-cools, such as radio yakker Rush Limbaugh, House Minority Leader John A. Boehner and former Vice President Dick Cheney?

Like, OMIGOD! High school kids have made slang about him! That’s, like, so dope! He likes blackberries! His wife wears sleeveless shirts and dresses! He likes the environment and he’s athletic! And hey, you better watch out. If you don’t like Obama, you’re square and the popular kids will stop talking to you.

In all seriousness, why is this what matters? And how can you possibly say that Obama is the first of anything? So he’s “hip” because he’s green, and he’s athletic, and his wife wears sleeveless tops, and other insignificant things like that.

Because, you know, we’ve never had a president that cared about the environment before. (Ahem, Teddy Roosevelt.) And we’ve never had an athletic president before. (Not President Bush, of course). And surely, no First Lady has ever bared her arms before. (Not even the fashionable Jackie Kennedy).

Of course, I may not be the best judge for “hipness”, although I’m pretty sure that no one under the age of 50 uses the term “square” anymore, despite this writer’s usage of it. In any case, let’s just assume that Barack Obama is, indeed, a “hip” president. Congratulations, Mr. Obama.

So, because Obama is a hip president, we’re supposed to overlook all the harm he is doing? All the promises he’s broken? All the corruption he’s ushered in?

How about the campaign promise that he wouldn’t approve any bill with a single earmark in it, and then approved a stimulus package pork-stuffed with over 9,000 of them? How about appointing tax cheats like Timothy Geithner to his cabinet, and nominating how many others like him? How about putting us trillions of dollars in debt? How about the overtaxing, spending, and borrowing? How about his consistent endangering of our national security? He’s not even been in office for 100 days yet, but he’s already made 100 mistakes.

We’re supposed to overlook all of this, just because he listens to “cool” music or something?

That is the most ridiculous, unintelligent, irresponsible, immature thing I may have ever read in my entire life. Threatening people with being “uncool” for not supporting a politician’s policies is quite possibly the most idiotic argument a person could make, but there it is, being made.

And this just sums up the issue with the Obama presidency, and liberalism in general. Liberals are so desperate to be loved that they’ve abandoned the goal of being principled. They just can’t understand that doing the right thing is more important than doing what’s popular. We need principled, competent, strong, patriotic, wise, moral leaders to guide us through these troubled times. Do you think any of our forefathers would have listed “hip” under the job requirements for the presidency? Not only would they not have asked for “hipness” as a requirement, they would certainly never have used it to excuse incompetency, immorality, corruption, anti-Americanism, dishonesty, and socialism.

Of course, Americans aren’t quite as crazy about Obama as the MSM would like you to believe, which is probably why they’re pumping out drivel like this.

    Meanwhile. the Obama Administration is chipping away at rights in a more devious fashion than the allegedly evil Bush Administration. Even the HuffPo is realizing this, and so are other liberal infested swamps like Digg and Reddit.

    We have all been lied to by the Obama camp. The media is focusing on ‘hip Obama’ and Michelle Obama rather than the actual issues.

  • Mat says:

    Bob is right. While the “hipness” continues, we’re getting more and more government intrusion every day. It’s not all that surprising that there are many media outlets that are “Threatening people with being “uncool” for not supporting a politician’s policies,”
    but it is hardly idiotic but part of a general program to isolate and freeze anyone who would dare speak out against the Messiah. It’s more like creepy.

    And I hate to admit it, but I think this guy is more popular than most conservatives want to admit (and I’m disgusted by it). I’m seriously concerned with the way this country is headed.

    And yes, that article made me want to vomit and I did lose 50 IQ points…

  • Mark says:

    Obama is like the water at a sewage treatment plant, i.e., non-transparent and full of sh*t.

  • Toa says:

    “And I hate to admit it, but I think this guy is more popular than most conservatives want to admit (and I’m disgusted by it). I’m seriously concerned with the way this country is headed.”

    Bull’s eye.

    Decades of ever-increasing glorification and deification of Black underclass culture have paid off big-time for the Left, as well as our sworn enemies -a little redundant, I guess (if anyone thinks I’m broad-brushing Blacks, I think we all know how the “Liberals” and their Media would have treated, say, Clarence Thomas had he been the candidate). Now that the large number of fools in America have one of their “gods” in the White House, they are beside themselves with glee at the thought of his proposed “Civilian Security Force” and how they will take care of all those “Right-Wing Extremists”, “bitter religeon-and-gun clingers”, etc.. A look in the comments sections of “Liberal” blogsites is a great indicator of who thinks Obama is “cool”…and why. We don’t label them “Obamunists” for nothing.

    May God have mercy on us!

    Well all last year I warned about it. No one would listen. “Give the man his chance” my father amd mother would tell me. Well how about the man taking 10 years at higher government and gaining alteast SOME experience?

    How about he show us what he HAS done and not expect us to blindly believe what he WILL do?

    Why is he refered to as black? OH thats right he is ashamed to admit that he is half white.

    Now I am on the DHS list of racisits extreme right wing right? YAH FOR ME!! Party at my place!

    I remember when the description of “square” was a good thing.
    As I told my kids when they hit junior and senior high school, cool(hip) doesn’t pay the rent, utilities and buy the groceries. And now we have a chief executive that is the cool/hip idol. Hmmmmmmmmm?
    My dance with cool/hip ended on 29 September 1973. On that day I actually DID something. I enlisted in the Navy and stayed for 20 years. I wonder how long before the “hip one” goes after my measly retirement as “fiscal restraint?”

  • physics geek says:

    And we’ve never had an athletic president before.

    I would like to remind people that President Ford was an All Big Ten athlete in college.

  • onetireddad says:

    If this is true then the USA is overdue for a hip replacement. Get on the waiting list!!!

  • JW M says:

    You say “on the DHS list” like it is a bad thing. I think that making the list is going to be a mark of virtue in the not too distant future. I am hearing more and more formally Obama supporters expressing outrage – “this is not what I expected at all”. To which I say what did you expect? He is a Chicago politician who has never had a real job (but neither have too many of those in DC) and not even very much experience in world politics. Just look at the MAJOR gaffs that our “First Couple” made in their recent trip abroad (anyone here read The Ugly American?).

  • Who takes that bloviating hipster seriously? Populists who pander to the crowd are puppets.

    We need the moral courage of Reagan and might of the neocons back in place.

  • Brian says:

    Bush just handed the baton to Obama. The fascist, war mongering and global warming carbon tax scams will continue until Americans pull their heads out and get out of the left vs. right paradigm. Bush and Obama were both for the bankster scamout.
