Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

The Right-Wing Alt-Media’s Self-Consuming Obsession with Race

Watching last night’s “Other Race Video” commotion unfold on Twitter was an instructive experience. After Matt Drudge first teased its race-y contents, if you will, it was touted with descriptors like “bombshell” and “game-changer.” A Daily Callerite promised it would “rock the world.” Yet when it became clear that this not-so-secret video would end in a whimper instead of a bang, its boosters shifted gears. Suddenly it was no longer about Obama. It was about the media. It was, as Tucker Carlson explained, about how Obama-symps “suck up to power.” It was about the MSM’s tendentious “news judgment.”

That’s not right, either.

It might seem obvious to say so, but this was about race.

It was about the Carlson-Drudge-Breitbart-Kurtz -D’Souza right’s certitude that Obama’s secretly seething black radicalism would be known to all if only the media would stop covering it up. This obsession bears all the hallmarks now of psychopathology. You need the right antennae — or maybe the right tooth fillings — to pick up on its signals. When Obama “talks black,” he is not merely pandering to a friendly audience — as, say, a Texan Republican might when speaking to fellow Southerners. He is “race-hustling.” When Obama mentions the legacy of slavery or segregation or urban poverty, he’s not taking conventionally liberal positions held by the Kennedys, LBJ, and the Clintons; he’s nursing a deeply felt personal grievance. When Obama talks about equality or income distribution, he is not simply a New Deal/Great Society Democrat; he’s a glorified inner-city rioter looting by other means.

This is hardly an original point — Ramesh Ponnuru and others have made it many times — but apparently it needs repeating: there is scarcely a position held by Obama, or an action taken by his administration, that cannot be explained by the fact that he’s a liberal Democrat. This dark and dank corner of the right can’t resist adding a superfluous layer of racialism to what should be an uncomplicated picture.

The lesson of last night’s embarrassing flop will no doubt be lost on them. They can’t stop.

Far more serious than commandeering Big Bird or unloosing Joe the Bully is the administration’s pack of lies surrounding the murderous Sept. 11 attack this year on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
The pattern of deception is so complete, obvious and shocking that if America had a real “mainstream” media, the election would be over.

Look at this dope!

Our national debt is 16 billion.

I wish!

Republicans spend that on hammers and screwdrivers every year as they do nothing.

Hey dooooooofus!

The USA owes almost $16 trillion!

Here is the breakdown:

All debt borrowed by all presidents BEFORE REAGAN:
7%.

REAGAN: 13%
BUSH 1: 11%
BUSH 2: 43%
----------
ALL REPUBLICAN OWNED!

SEE?

They borrow trillions for rich guy tax cuts,

then tell the citizens: we need to cut budgets!

Under Mitt Romney:
Medicare: gone!
Social Security: gone!
Minimum Wage: gone!
EPA: gone!
Education: gone!
Affordable Care Law: gone!
Legal Women's Choice: gone!
etc.......

Mitt Romney: we can't afford it!

HEY MITT! that will save only ......$1 per year per citizen!

What a dumbffffck! Just like Glenn the dooooofus!

Hey dum dum.
Your boy Obama promised America that Bush was unpatriotic for the deficits during the Bush administration. He promised he would cut that deficit in half.
The deficit was 10 Billion when Obama took office. The deifit which was supposed to be cut in half is now 16 Billion. That means Obama added 6 billion to the debt in less than 4 years.
If Bush was responsible for the entire 10 Billion (which he isn't) that debt was amased over an 8 year period of time. That means that instead of reducing the debt like he promised to do Obama is increasing the deficit at a much higher rate then Bush ever did. Since he promised to cut the 10 Billion down to 5 Billion and he aded another 6 Billion that means Obama is only about 11 Billion behind what was promised when he ran in 2008.
The only reason the debt is at 16 Billion is because the Republicans put the brake on spending when the 2010 midterm elections took place.
Obama has consistantly offered budget proposals that would have increased the current deficit at a much more rapid rate. Not even the dum dums in the Senate were dum enough to pass Obama's insanity.

"Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was far more generous to charities than President Barack Obama or Vice President Joe Biden last year, both in dollar terms and as a percentage of income, tax return data Romney’s campaign released Friday indicate.
Romney and his wife, Ann, gave 29.4 percent of their income to charity in 2011, donating $4,020,772 out of the $13,696,951 they took in."

A month ago, some liberal moron named Old Raider was on here blaming "right-wingers" for ammo shortages. There is no longer a shortage - he didn't get the memo.

As usual, a dumb liberal blaming others for what his Democrats have done.

In the wake of the Daily Caller's widely derided effort last week to claim the emergence of a video capturing a speech Barack Obama gave in 2007 would jolt this year's presidential campaign, editor Tucker Carlson lashed out at journalists who ignored his dubious endeavor, denouncing them as "contemptible."

After suffering what Salon's Joan Walsh described as an "ethnic nervous breakdown" on Fox News last week as he breathlessly portrayed Obama as a race hustler in the 2007 video ("This guy is whipping up race hatred and fear. Period."), a "fuming" Carlson told the Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz that the media's disinterest in the old Obama clip was "disgusting."

And on Fox, Carlson railed against the "throne sniffers" in the press, the "defenders of Obama," who (wisely) dismissed the Daily Caller/Drudge Report/Fox-hyped video as old news. And not even interesting old news at that.

Carlson has used the Daily Caller flop to whine about liberal media bias. His proof? Journalists won't pay attention to the crackpot items Daily Caller posts. And specifically, journalists wouldn't pay attention to an uninteresting video Carlson hyped last week; a video of a speech that was widely covered in 2007.

Fred Barnes made a similar argument about bias in The Weekly Standard when he wrote an obligatory attack on the press last week for being in the Obama camp and for trying to re-elect the Democrat. Pointing to what he considered to be the glaring examples of obvious bias (it's "massive, palpable, and unprecedented"!), Barnes wrote the press beat up on Mitt Romney for making so-called gaffes, while giving Obama a pass:....

Like Carlson, Barnes is angry the press didn't immediately take seriously a non-news story the right-wing media manufactured and pushed to attack Obama this summer. In this case, it was the false claim that Obama insulted businessmen with his "you didn't build that" comment.

These latest media attacks from Barnes and Carlson represent an odd chorus to the old liberal bias chant we've heard for decades. And the chorus sounds like this: If reporters don't embrace and report on the utter nonsense that unmoored sites within conservative media create, especially during the campaign season, then journalists are declaring their bias.

Biden lied like crazy and through the Intelligence Community (Patriots) under the bus during the VP Debate.

Democrats are idiots.

The church is suing over Obamacare.

The White House knew it was terrorism within 24 hours after the messacre at Bengali.

Blaming the Media for Romney’s Unforced Error

RedState’s Erick Erickson is out this morning with a tired-sounding midnight-oil rant about media bias. He peppers it with this incantation:“But the media wanted to focus on Mitt Romney.”

A few points.

The media focused on Mitt Romney yesterday because Mitt Romney asked them to.

If he had merely issued a formal statement expressing outrage at the mobs in Cairo and Benghazi, the media would have focused on the aspects of this ongoing story that Erickson finds so interesting — effectively, as Daniel Larison observed via Twitter, it would have done Romney’s work for him.

I suspect we will be learning a lot more in the coming days about how much the Obama administration knew about security threats to our embassies, and whether they should have acted more quickly to fortify them. If it turns out the administration was derelict in this duty, it will deserve all the subsequent grief it gets from the Romney campaign.

But that wasn’t the point of Romney’s attack, was it?

The point of Romney’s attack was to invidiously link Obama with the Egyptian and Libyan protesters — to imply that he doesn’t love America enough to stand up for values such as free speech. On that score, Daniel McCarthy already has dismantled the argument from free speech.

Here is Erickson on the subject:“Yesterday, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a man who swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America, called an American civilian to ask him to stop exercising his first amendment rights.”

This is rich.

As Jeffrey Goldberg put it in the Atlantic, someone working in a besieged embassy sent out a tweet in fear — understandable, if not excusable.

I love the picture of Erick Erickson facing the same situation, making like an ACLU lawyer in the desert.

Indeed, behold the bravery of condemning the U.S. media for exercising its first amendment rights at the apparent expense of the hapless Mitt Romney.
