How stupid does Obama – and his stage managers – think we are? The attendees of every Obama speech are intensively screened to make sure their are no embarrassing interruptions to the President's prepared remarks – because, as everyone knows, Obama doesn't think well on his feet.
To believe that no less than three "hecklers" could have slipped through that screening – and that all three were "attacking" the President on the same subject – is indicative of an almost physically debilitating gullibility. And why didn't the security contingent, always present at Obama's speeches, remove the sources of this disturbance, as they've always done with hecklers in the past?
And who in their right mind could possibly believe that people – even people as unaware as Chicagoans – who are involved enough to attend a Presidential speech would not be aware that Obama is under fire for restricting, not for advocating, deportation of criminal immigrants.
Furthermore, one of the "hecklers" was in the coterie of carefully selected actors behind the President, a dead tip-off that this "encounter" between the President and his audience was staged. And the woman who performed for the camera behind the President was obviously a plant. Look at the faces of the other performers. No shock. No disdain. "Oh, yeah. This is the part they told us about where the woman yells at Obama."
This was a carefully, if clumsily, scripted and rehearsed event – a clever bit of playacting designed to convince the less perceptive of the American populace that there are actually Americans who think Obama should inject 5 million unskilled, non-English speaking, and criminally inclined welfare recipients into the American job market. And it further provided an opportunity for the President to preach to his base of unthinking Democrats that it is the hated Republicans who are preventing him from "doing the right thing."
This is political theater carried to a new low of chicanery and absurdity. And it is a blatant insult to our intelligence – a disrespectful, in-your-face asseveration that we are stupid enough to believe such an obvious charade.
But I'm sure I must be boring you. If someone as mentally mundane as I could see through this ruse, you must already have seen through it yourself.
