Obama and Moby Dick

I first posted this last year but due to time restraints I'm posting it again today.

"Call me Ishmael" Perhaps the most famous opening line of any great novel. And we all know the story of Moby Dick, some however may not understand the meaning. The fateful quest of Captain Ahab, his search for the great white whale, Moby Dick. Obama has boarded the Pequod and has set sail to find his arch enemy, Individualism. He is joined not by Queequeg, but by Rahm Emanuel with harpoon in hand. We all (Ishmael), watch the journey, and wait to see the final battle. The battle that will end only when one is "no longer". We read the lines as the Pequod slips through the changing currents and tides of onrushing events and wonder where the chase will end. In Moby Dick, Ahab is caught by fate, a fate that was set long before he sailed; and Obama is following the same course. A course laid down many years before he took the helm, but a course he is destined to follow to the end. The lines from the harpoon entangled Ahab, and the webs of deceit Obama is spinning will trap and destroy him in the end. The great Moby Dick of American individualism will be free again.

This putz is hanging himself every time he opens his mouth... Even the far left are sick of his B.S.

the web of deceit that Obama is weaving is starting to entrap him. People are seeing what he is all about and they are beginning to push pack.
