Well, Alec Baldwin has done it again. A few months ago in an interview with Huffington Post, Baldwin addressed comments he made about Mitt Romney in which he allegedly called Romney a ‘Ken doll’.
Equally square-jawed Baldwin said, “I did not write that Romney is a Ken doll. He is anything but. And the sooner Democratic political operatives agree on that, the better for Obama. I referred to that iconic retail figure to highlight those types that are lean of frame and square jawed, like Romney, who seem to hold the public’s attention more easily. Something starkly visual that either aids a candidacy or rarely hurts it. Especially where the candidate is a male. Comments about Sarah Palin’s beauty were punted around in the political media, but it was a double-edged sword that cost as much as it benefited. Especially with other women, oddly enough.”
Equally wealthy Baldwin went on to explain why he believes Romney is a threat to Obama in 2012:
“Romney is a serious challenge to Obama. He is wealthy, so he can pay for his own helicopter to his kid’s ballgame. He lacks any of the abjectly feral, political hit man quality of, say, Gingrich. He is a decent speaker, and will only improve if his GOP handlers are as Pygmalionesque as they have proven in the past.”
Next, Baldwin tried to tout his hero Barack’s accomplishments as a president and as a ‘family man’:
“More importantly, Obama is still someone that many Americans have chosen to withhold their deepest feelings of admiration and affection for, in spite of the fact that he got bin Laden’s scalp, contributed to saving the US auto industry (at least for now), and coughed up his birth certificate to silence all of that Swift-boating, election-nullifying trash out there. He appears to be a very bright, sober, hard-working, deeply caring man. A husband and father.”
Then, Alec again noted Obama’s physical traits which he especially seems to enjoy:
“Obama is lean of frame and square of jaw and loves his country, too. Obama and Romney even share some opinions on matters of urgent domestic policy.”
Finally, Baldwin seeme desperate to understand why ‘some people’ just don’t like Barack Hussein Obama:
“Yet, in some people’s eyes, Obama lacks something. I wonder what that could be?”
Hopefully I can answer that question for you , Mr. Alec Baldwin.
First of all, we could care less what Obama looks like. We don’t care about his (or yours or Romney’s) ‘square jaws’ and ‘lean frames’ and whether or not you’re all ‘family men’. Matter of fact, we’re basically okay with most of Obama’s personal life, although we’d prefer he maybe play a little less golf and stops the extravagant world traveling every month…
And yeah, under his term as president Bin Laden was killed—but most sane people will never give him credit for this, as this undertaking started long before he got into the White House and was done by very competent Navy Seals—not Obama.
And you say he ‘saved the auto industry’? Seriously? Not even going to deal with that one…
So to answer your question, Mr. Baldwin, about what President Obama is lacking—in a nutshell, and in terms that even vacuous liberal actors can understand, it comes down to two things: Obama’s lack of love for America and his lack of understanding (and/or respect) for our Constitution. Got it, Alec?
