Tipping His Hand: How Obama’s Negative Statements Reveal His True Feelings

A great moment (maybe the only great moment) of the 2013 Oscars didn’t happen during the ceremony; it happened in the interview after with Jennifer Lawrence. In the interview, a reporter asked her: “You’re not worried that you’ll peak too soon?”
Jennifer Lawrence replied,“Well now I am!” [Go to the 1:12 mark for the funny.]

In the same way, Barack Obama has repeatedly introduced ideas that no one, save him it seems, had considered. President Obama has helpfully clarified the following:

I am not a dictator.”

We don’t want to tax all businesses out of business,” Obama said. “But we do think that there’s a role to play for government.”

The truth leaks out. Everyone wants their true desires to be viewed as normative. The first step is to verbalize the desires–make them okay.

Sample statements:

Questioner: “So, you didn’t get cookies and milk after school, then?”
Psychopath: “My mom wasn’t a bad person.” (No one had said she was.)

Questioner: “Did you have any sisters or brothers?”
Psychopath: “Children are safe with me.” (Who mentioned safety?)

Get the idea?

President Obama keeps answering questions no one is asking or no one is fearing–well, until he mentions it, of course.

Was I worried about him being a dictator? Well, I am now.

Was I worried about him taxing all business out of business? Kinda. But I really am now.

People have tuned out President Obama’s incessant droning. That’s a mistake. As he feels more emboldened and untouchable, he’s saying what he really thinks and it’s disturbing.

    Great catch re the juxtaposition of Jennifer Lawrence here and our reaction to Obama when he reveals his true thinking. “Don’t worry about government oppression,” he said a few weeks ago. We should have been thankful for the warning.

    It’s cute when it’s a young starlet answering stupid questions, adorable even. (I just LOVE her!)

    When it’s the prez being caught up short … not so much. (Not so crazy about him though)
