Signer of the Times

Joe Biden has been called as a waxworks effigy of a president, sock puppet, bobblehead and so forth. Those descriptions are all valid, but there’s a better way to view the Delaware Democrat now occupying the White House. Consider the experience of the composite character president David Garrow charted in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama.

During Obama’s eulogy of Nelson Mandela on December 10, 2013, South African interpreter Thamsanqa Jantjie, only a few feet away, was signing “nonsense” and  “gibberish.” Bruno Druchen, director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa (DFSA) told reporters the man was a “fake,” and for interpreter Nicole Du Toit, “it was horrible, an absolute circus, really really bad.” Jantjie claimed he saw angels flying into the stadium, and was later packed off to a psychiatric hospital. (There were credible accusations that Jantjie was involved with a mob that burned two people to death.)

There’s a lesson here for the Secret Service, but more so for the people. Jump ahead to “The Obama Factor,” David Samuels marathon interview with David Garrow. He confirmed that Dreams from My Father was a novel, but for Samuels there was more to it.

The composite character president “helped precipitate the disaster we are living through now.” Obama holds the Iran file and “all of his people are already inside the White House. . . Lisa Monaco in Justice. Susan Rice running domestic policy. It’s turtles all the way down.” Obama is in control and Joe Biden serves as his Thamsanqa Jantjie, an interpreter for the masses.

The Delaware Democrat is known for incomprehensible word saladsabsolute gibberish, and tall tales from Corn Pop to Uncle Bosie. As in 2013 it’s an absolute circus, really really bad, but there’s a meaning to the madness. The disaster we are living through now, as Humphrey Bogart might say, is the stuff Obama’s dreams are made of.  The composite character is in full triumphal mode and through Joe Biden he taunts the people. Ask yourself how you like  A Promised Land so far.
