Dijon and Insecurity

Very perceptive comment from the blogger who noted the "Dijon, please" from Obama...

Here's the setup:

...The post concerned the lunch trip of Obama and Biden to a burger shop to get a "Hell Burger." I accept that this should not have been news, but the White House image makers wanted to portray the two as just regular guys out at the local diner, so the event was hyped

...But MSNBC edited out the audio when Obama ordered his Hell Burger just at the moment when Obama asked for Dijon mustard. Now I have nothing against Dijon mustard, but the image didn't fit with the image being spun by the White House and MSNBC. Dijon mustard on a Hell Burger had a very John Kerry-ish quality about it [just like arugula! Ed.]

That post was noted by every screeching Harpy on the Left.

...many of the high profile nutroots blogs have linked. If you check out the links and comments, you will see that the full foul-mouthed, abusive intellect of the nutroots has been brought to bear

What gives here? Why the out-sized reaction? If this is a non-story, why is the left obsessed with it?

...I think the answer to why the nutroots cannot let Dijongate rest is the inherent insecurity of the left with their hold on power. While the mainstream media and left-wing blogs constantly tell us that Republicans and conservatives are dead politically, I don't think they actually believe what they are saying.The nutroots and mainstream media understand that Obama and the corresponding Democratic majorities in Congress were elected through a unique confluence of circumstances which may never be repeated.

I think he's right. Not only is there ZERO resemblance between the Administrations of Lincoln and Obama--or JFK and Obama, for that matter, it's also slowly dawning on the citizenry that Obama is a nascent fascist and a flaming narcissist. And of course, there's Sancho Biden...

The over-reach is palpable, from cap-and-tax to compromises on national security, to unimaginable over-spending, to his drumbeat of abortion-pushing nominees to EVERY post in the appointed ranks.

In fact, Doyle may be a victim of exactly the same over-reach as will Obama.

This may well be the high point of his Presidency.

Sancho Biden. I wish I had thought of that and included it in this post.
