Lois Lerner Strikes the Obama Pose

Posted by on May 23, 2013 at 10:39 am

If the GOP wants to capitalize on the imperious arrogance and pomposity of the IRS, they should pair this image of Lois Lerner with the famed image of Obama with his nose in the air. They go so well together. If ever any photos encapsulated smug condescension, it’s these:


It’s as if having to testify before Congress is just so beneath her.

Wonder where she gets that from?


It seems to be a liberal thing.

    Where is the second picture from?

    FWIW, this is more of a smug entitlement hubris look and not confined to liberals.

    This is a smugness born of media worship and Republican eunuchs. Both she and Obama have done some much damage, with no checks or balances from the other two branches of government, that they honestly believe that all Americans are beneath them, and at the bottom is Republican congressmen.

    Wasn’t Lois Lerner a hold-0ver from the Bush and originally the Reagan Administrations? I thought the IRS was an independent agency overseen by Congress.

    No I don’t think Lerner is anywhere near the level of contempt obama has. She has enough for us to hate her and whatnot, but she’s no obama.

    The obama pose is one you might expect to see on a statue. obama thinks he is profound and what he says is profound. It’s as if every photo op he has to strike that pose. He’s ready for somebody to carve his face into Mount Rushmore.

    This is born of an attitude that believes they can’t be touched, harmed, or questioned for what they do. They are the new untouchables while they have their thieving, scheming hands in our lives and pockets.

    I wailed about this bunch of gangsters when I read about how Obama illegally opened sealed court records of a political opponent to win the Senate office in Illinois. He is a thug and absolutely no one in Washington is even closely willing to try and stop him.

    Every time I see that Obama photograph I think of Ozymandias.

    “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away”
