OKLAHOMA CITY – Mother Nature reminded us of her interminable power and fury this weekend when six people died in what the Woodward News describes as a “massive tornado” that struck that northwest Oklahoma city.

Coming into Saturday, we heard reports saying that the day would rival the May 3, 1999 tornadoes, but outside of the Woodward area, Oklahoma was spared May 3rd-level devastation, thankfully, although The Oklahoman headline this morning screamed “’Unbelievable’ in relation to the “preliminary EF3 rating” the twister received. Our heart and prayers go to those who lost loved ones.

Turning our gaze to national politics, we see the Obama administration fumbling about, trying to snap out of its never-ending stupor. Do the Democrats realize how bad they look these days? And they will be facing flip-flopping, two-faced Mitt Romney this fall. My bet is on Romney this fall the way things are shaping up. Nearly four years in and Obama still screams "amateur hour." And my sources tell me Rick Santorum jumped out because he couldn't face the humiliation of losing his homestate of Pennsylvania. And Gingrich? He is becoming a national punchline, as noted on Saturday Night Live in that opening sketch where he is seen in the bar stuffing his pockets with free bar peanuts. Ron Paul? Not included in the sketch. A ghost to the NYC hipsters.

Remember that scene in Romancing the Stone where Kathleen Turner’s character is stranded on that mountain road in the Colombian jungle? Running into Michael Douglas’s character Jack Colton she wants to know how to get to Cartagena …

Says dashing adventurer Jack Colton to the bewildered romance author: “Cartagena? Angel, you are hell and gone from Cartagena.”

Hell and gone, indeed. I bet Obama wishes he were hell and gone out of this job he finds himself in. This guy is not about doing real work, he’s about the perks and the adulation. Oh, he’s licking his chops at the thought of some taxpayer-funded family vacation to some swanky Caribbean resort, but do actual work as president? Hell, no, Joe!

Check this out: While on his disastrous visit to a summit in Cartagena, Colombia, the tin-eared president praises the locals and and the “extraordinary hospitality in the beautiful city of Cartagena.” Then, rather than saying anything of substance, the conversation turns back to him and his comfort and pleasure … “We’re having a wonderful time. And usually when I take these summit trips, part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation.”

Are you kidding me? After Lord Obama was called out by a ballsy St. Louis reporter for “jetting around,” this narcissistic clown emphasizes how a little vay-kay is the first AND ONLY thing on his mind. Maybe he’ll squeeze in some hoops, an afternoon or three on the links and then a nap. And they used to make fun of Ronald Reagan and his jellybean habit and forgetting about the details of Iran-Contra. 

And before Obama gets there, the Secret Service is having whores up to their rooms. What? Were they doing some of that “happy dust” in the bathroom? What else were they doing that was compromising national security? Who is hiring these Secret Service clowns who are apparently nothing more than a bunch of frat boys living out their dreams 20 years after they dropped out of some downstate jerkwater college.

And the president? It’s a big, damn joke. Boys will be boys. Honey traps? Who the hell cares. No one in this joke of an administration takes anything seriously. Obama’s cluelessness is absolutely stunning and off the charts. Let’s go on another trip!

And what of Dick Cheney, back in his homestate of Wyoming? Oh, tricky Dick gets it and says Obama has “been an unmitigated disaster to the country” and a “huge, huge disappointment.” Where was Dick Cheney three years ago? Oh, that was before he got a new heart. Guess the prior owner of his new ticker had a conscience after all.

Meanwhile, back here on Earth, The Wall Street Journal ran a column the other day by Kip Hawley, a former TSA goon squad commander who had a “road to Damascus” moment and – SHOCK! – admitted TSA is an abject disaster. Of course he still thinks TSA can be fixed and reformed. He doesn’t go far enough. Dismantle the whole blankin’ operation and fire all of these corrupt little twerps who are radiating us, stealing from us, poking and prodding us like mouth-breathing perverts in too-tight blue shirts, buttons busting.
