Barack Obama, our next President

Erick Erickson:
W5 + H = A Baseline for Integrity
I think conservative media is failing to advance ideas and stories. Certainly part of that is because the general media has an ideological bias against conservatives, which makes it harder for the media to take our views seriously. But many conservatives are, instead of working doubly hard to overcome that bias, just yelling louder about the same things. The echo in the chamber has gotten so loud it is not well understood outside the echo chamber in the mainstream press and in the public. It translates only as anger and noise, neither of which are conducive to the art of persuasion.
Conservatives are trying so hard to highlight controversies, no matter how trivial, we have forgotten the basics of reporting: W5 + H as I learned in grade school, also known as who, what, where, when, why, and how. I think conservatives need to reset some of their reportorial resources to tell the stories that need to be told by focusing on the facts at hand in a world view of the right. We need to establish a baseline for integrity in reporting that then allows us to highlight the truly outrageous. That baseline must be the basics of who, what, where, when, why, and how and it must be set before taking the next step into analysis of motivation and its implications.
The “Obamaphone” is a great example of this. Conservatives laughed out loud at the video of the lady saying Barack Obama had given her a phone. Conservatives used it as an example of all that was wrong with the expansion of the welfare state under Barack Obama. What many conservatives missed was that the program was a pre-existing program. In fact, the “Obamaphone” idea goes back to the Reagan Administration, but the present program was implemented in 2008 when George W. Bush was President. Government funds are not even used directly.
Focus on the Obamaphone by conservatives missed a number of key points and, in not covering the basic facts, sent conservative activists down rabbit holes. It would have been helpful if conservative reporters spent more time laying out the basic who, what, where, when, why, and how of the issue before exploring the necessity of the program and the fact that there are Americans who credit Barack Obama with giving them that phone.
Conservatives went to the critique in some cases before fully understanding the program. This happens on both sides of the aisle, but conservatives have to be better informed and more versed in the facts because the media already leans left and gives more latitude to the left.

Some things I would like to see investigated in the news:

Who issued the orders from the White House to hang the Americans out to dry in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Since there is no cut to government spending either with or without a so-called "sequester", why is ICE releasing criminal illegal aliens back into the general public?

How many people are killed in the mass murders that occur every weekend in every inner-city Democrat district with the most stringent control laws in the country?

Why are all the mass murderers Democrats?

How can Barney Frank throw his male page off his New York hotel balcony and run a male prostitution racket out of his house and be named by the Democrats to be the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee?

Why is Menendez being given a pass after having sex with children?

He was warned by the CIA six weeks in advance of a brewing terror attack. The August 6, 2001 PDB even mentioned activity which could be interpreted as preparatory for hijackings.
And what did Bush do? NOTHING.
And consequently presided over the worst terror attack in U.S. history.
He launched an unnecessary war by lies.
He outed a CIA agent.
Ordered illegal NSA surveilance of the public.
Left the economy in shambles.
Obama may not be perfect, but he's better than Bush.
Bush years were FAR too generous-in erroneously allowing for too much credit in lending where lending should NOT have been lent.
We should allow the current oboticeconoy philosophy of

On more than one occasion I’ve seen conservatives treat the GOP Leadership skeptically until a friend is hired by Leadership. Suddenly, the agnostic reporter becomes a believer and often uses his perch to undermine conservatives in Congress on behalf of leadership. Everyone should be questioned and friendship with the Speaker’s and Leader’s staffs should not be a goal.

More often than not these days, conservatives are being undercut by their own leadership in Congress and not the Democrats. A conservative press that caters to the talking points of the leadership is helping undercut the conservative agenda.

The bottom line is Republicans do not under any circumstances want to work with the president. Holding up Hagel's confirmation and he's a Republican, ostracising Christie for working with the president.

Of course then they go on and spew their lies about how the president is devisive and won't work with Republicans.

Bunch of friggin' liars all of them.

Conservatives' Self-Defeating Hatred of Chris Christie
Here are two facts about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He is tremendously popular, with an approval rating in the mid-70s. And lots of national conservatives feel betrayed by him. These facts are closely related, and they reflect why Republicans are unlikely to heed calls to change their doomed economic policy agenda.
Christie is so popular for largely the same reasons that conservatives nationally have soured on him. He has charted a politically smart course, pushing conservative initiatives when they are popular and serve the interests of his state's residents. He hasn't been willing to die on every Tea Party hill.
....What so bothers conservatives about Christie is that he has figured out which parts of conservatism are working and been willing to ditch the ones that aren't. His Ronald Reagan Presidential Library speech in 2011, full of explicit criticism of Obama, also contained an implicit critique of congressional Republicans' scorched-earth opposition to the president. Christie has often intimated that as president, as in his governorship, he would treat compromise with the other party as an important strategy rather than a dirty word.
So maybe the CPAC insider is right that Christie isn't a conservative, at least as conservatives in the U.S. today define themselves. The insider told National Review that Christie has a limited future in the Republican Party because of his apostasy. But Christie is only an apostate because he realizes that conservatism, as defined by the sort of people who organize CPAC, has a limited future in America.
