Remember that book Big Guy bought - Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus?
Well, make room under there, all you stinky PFOB’s (Previous Friends Of Barry’s), because BO just kicked all of America’s police officers under there too.
At a historic meeting of Progressives and Professional Community Agitators convened by Big Guy: Little Joe, Al Sharpton (our house race baiter and Ms.NBC host), several mayors, the presidents of the National Urban League and the National Council of La Raza, two representatives of the NAACP, the director of the ACLU, GlobalGrind.com president Michael Skolnik, and artist T-Dubb – butt nobody from the Ferguson police force.
The meeting was intended to follow up on the media coverage of the event and shift the conversation to, well… here, in a tweet:
More specifically, it was to discuss ways to build trust between police and “communities of color.” And if you’ve heard all this before, don’t worry, this time it will be different:
"Part of the reason this time will be different is because the president of the United States is deeply invested in making sure that this time is different," Obama said.
Because our el Presidente is now speaking in the third person. Which always means an Executive Order is sure to follow. So right on clue:
Obama said he will issue an executive order that will require federal agencies that run the programs to consult with law enforcement and civil rights and civil liberties organizations and recommend changes within four months to make sure the programs are accountable and transparent.
"We're going to make sure that we're not building a militarized culture inside our local law enforcement," Obama said. He said the goal instead is to ensure that "crime goes down while community trust in the police goes up."
Wait, what? Is this the same “president of the United States” who in 2008 said:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
Oh well, I guess anyone can change their mind. So it’s important to remember that the last thing out of Big Guy’s mouth is always the current operating plan. Therefore, when he said “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” dozens of times, what he meant was this “clarifying” statement, issued years later: “if you like your plan you can keep your plan, if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” (Whoops - “Pants on Fire” alert!)
And the same conditions hold true when “the president” told the American people (22 times) that he “wasn’t the Emperor of the United States” who could do an end-around Congress and mandate amnesty…until he did.
So here’s the plan as I understand it: Big Guy’s issuing an Executive Order to replace police military gear with Go-pros,
and the Reverend Al is going to hold meetings to discuss our feelings on race for the next 4 months. I guess that sounds like a plan – at least to a community organizer.
Frankly, I like this guy’s plan better. Much better. Hey! He might make a good replacement for Eric the Red.
