Most Annoying (& Baseless) “Star Trek” Comparison: “Barack Is Spock”

By Debbie Schlussel
Please. Make. It. Stop.
I can’t stand it, anymore. If I hear one more person compare Barack Hussein Obama to Spock, I think I’m gonna hurl. But with the new “Star Trek” movie (read my review) now out, that’s what the seers of the “conventional wisdom” are doing.
Yeah–I know, I know–Spock is half human and half Vulcan and Obama is half human and half Marxist. Actually, these Obama worshippers are comparing the two because of Obama’s biracial heritage. Uh, whatever.
This is the crap we saw on last night’s “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams,” with the “reporter”/panderer pimping us on the Spock comparison and a dude from Newsweek chiming in to back him up:

Visit for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy

Here’s the real comparison:
Spock . . . Boldly went were no man went before, but
Barack . . . Boldly went to Jimmy Carterville, where a gazillion failed liberals went, not to mention double-digit inflation, and American hostages in Iran.
Spock . . . Went forward in time (in new “Star Trek” movie) to save the earth;
Barack . . . Went back in time to the Great Depression, the Carter Years, the New Deal, the Great Society–to not save the earth.
Spock . . . Brilliant but modest;
Barack . . . Well he thinks he’s the first adjective and lets us know it, and he definitely ain’t the second adjective.
Spock . . . in an interspecies relationship (in new “Star Trek” movie;
Barack . . . in an interspecies relationship.
Spock . . . Live Long and Prosper;
Barack . . . Taxed Long and Whither Under Socialism & Socialized Medicine.
Spock . . . visited countless galaxies;
Barack . . . visited “57 [United] States.”
Spock . . . in real life, he’s a Jew;
Barack . . . in real life, he’s a Muslim.
Spock . . . wants us to be nice to and make peace with aliens from everywhere;
Barack . . . wants us to be nice to aliens, from everywhere–Mexico, the Middle East, etc. (“comprehensive immigration reform” comin’ up).
Spock . . . weird ears and strange eyebrows;
Barack . . . weird ears and strange eyebrows.
Spock . . . realized you can’t make peace with Romulans and must fight them to save earth;
Barack . . . still pandering to Islam, bowing to Saudi Kings, negotiating with HAMAS, accepting books and shaking hands with Hugo Chavez, and looking to hang with Ahmadinejad.
Okay, enough of the comparisons. Right now, it’s like we have a Klingon-in-Chief invading the White House. If I had a choice, I’d want Kirk as President, not Spock. Sadly, the Republicans can’t come up with one.
Beam me up, Scotty . . . .

Not Even Close

there’s one more comparison, that being Spock would give the vulcan salute and say “Live long and Prosper”.. Obama raises the middle digit and says “Die young and poor”…
also.. Spock alrtuistically croaked in the Wrath of Khan saying “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one”.. Obama will tell you “The needs of ME outweigh the needs of the rest of you”…. 😀

Newsweek had a side by side comparison – Bush Star Wars and Obama Star Trek, Obama as Spock.
Guess who was Darth Vader? Bush, not Cheney! Cheney is the Emperor, Darth Sidious.
Rush as a Klingon? Like a Klingon could function with half his brain tied behind his back.
Thanks for ruining two sci fi franchises for me Newsweek! Well, really just one, George Lucas ruined Star Wars with his reissue of IV-VI and the real Dark Lord of the Universe, He Who Must Not Be Named, JJ Binks.

Let’s not forget that Spock was second in command to Kirk. So Biden the Buffoon is actually our country’s leader?
