How far has the Office of the President been denigrated when, thirty-something years ago it took two crack reporters from the Washington Post and some guy named “Deep Throat” to uncover the lies enveloping the White House, to today, when a pint-sized faux-Jersey girl named Snooki can catch the President of the United States in a lie?
Really. How pathetic is it when, barely 20 seconds into this week’s presidential address, the temptation to laugh gives way to knee-slapping guffaws at the transparent and hypocritical effort to demonize faux villains for something he, as well as his union boss cronies, have been doing for years? Here’s his statement:
“As the political season heats up, Americans are already being inundated with the usual phone calls, mailings, and TV ads from campaigns all across the country,” Obama said. “But this summer, they’re also seeing a flood of attack ads run by shadowy groups with harmless-sounding names. We don’t know who’s behind these ads and we don’t know who’s paying for them.”
Let’s start with the first point (Americans being inundated with calls mailings and TV ads), shall we?…
Tabitha Hale cites an e-mail she received from the DNC last week wherein the party of jackasses used women’s suffrage as a means of telling her that, if you’re a woman, you should vote for the Democrats in the mid-terms.
In another example, Moveon.org provided the President some cover fire over the 9/11 Mosque controversy with an e-mail that started out with:
Dear MoveOn member,
Last week, President Obama took a brave stand in support of a core American principle: freedom of religion.
Now, President Obama is under serious attack from Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and much of the Republican Party, who are using the proposed Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan to whip up fear and hate.
Forgetting that the President is on his sixth vacation (six more than this writer has had in…well…years), that the debate over whether he lies has become so easily proven, it is almost hysterical how blatantly obvious the President tries to snooker (sorry, Snooki!) America into believing that he and his leftist cronies in the union movement (and elsewhere) are not doing exactly what he is accusing other ‘unnamed’ groups of doing.
Of course his entire message was more about making an argument for limiting the First Amendment Rights of some, while favoring his union bosses through the “harmless-sounding” DISCLOSE Act.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Since January, Donald Trump has attacked Hillary Clinton as an “enabler” of Bill Clinton’s sexual misadventures, including Clinton’s alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick. He has repeatedly said that the reason Hillary qualifies as an “enabler” is that she has publicly attacked and said mean and nasty things about Clinton’s accusers: Eugene, Oregon (CNN) Donald Trump on Friday accused Hillary Clinton | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES We are in the midst of a presidential race that is fundamentally changing how many view – and thought they knew – politics. Donald Trump especially is radically altering that map. What many thought were permanent lines – turned out to be drawn on an Etch-a-Sketch. That the presumptive Republican nominee has spent the last year shaking into oblivion. | Read More »
