“The bear is loose” is the inane phrase White House acolytes have been slinging lately when Obama gets out of the White House to schmooze with the dwindling (but still mega-wealthy) band of believers.
Even the New York Times thinks it’s stupid, but ex-Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino says it has a kernel of truth – just not the kind the libs seem to think.
It’s actually quite appropriate that the President calls himself “The Bear” being that he has hibernated throughout his presidency. #tcot

Bongino gave up the presidential protection racket to write “Life Inside the Bubble” — the New York Times bestseller warning about how dysfunctional the government has become — and embark on a political career. Now challenging Democrat incumbent Rep. John Delaney in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District, he’s no fan of a president he thinks has an “authoritarian” streak.
But the responses he got were even worse.
For them, Obama is simply unbearable. (Warning: Some rough language ahead.)
@dbongino Changing #Obama‘s nickname to “Groundhog” is more fitting. Every time he sees a Teleprompter shadow it’s 6 more weeks of bullshit.

@dbongino @TheRawMilkChick he wishes he could claim a moniker like bear. Bears stand their ground …not r POTUS !

Some thought “the bear” analogy was oddly fitting — given that the animal is the symbol of the country Mitt Romney called the “No. 1 political foe” of the United States during the last campaign.
(Obama and his acolytes mocked Romney for that, remember. That was back before Vladimir Putin annexed the Crimea and stirred eastern Europe to a war footing. Before any commercial airliners were getting shot down, too.)
@dbongino Or maybe he identifies with the Russian bear (he had more flexibility after the election, as he said). He WAS raised by communists — The Prepper’s Bible (@jocelelyon) July 18, 2014
@dbongino @BarneyFranken or it could be he is a complete dumbass with no historical context

Whatever the interpretation, it’s not the hip, vaguely dangerous spin, that White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer seems to think it has. As Bongino’s Twitter post points out, it’s mainly kind of pathetic.
@dbongino Allow me to clatify, Obama is actually referring to himself as “the Bare,” since it’s evident the Emperor has no clothes . . . . — Magician (@MagiciansWheel) July 19, 2014
@dbongino @slone How I wish he would hibernate the rest of the time. — J Butler (@jbutler70) July 19, 2014

@dbongino @BarneyFranken And he should be hibernating in GITMO — America (@frydguy) July 18, 2014
That’s not going to happen as long as he’s in office. And what’s going to happen to “the bear” when he gets out?
@dbongino@skew11 But he loves campaigning ! Poor O will be like Carter no one will want him to campaign for them after his 8 year fiasco !
