For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield)
What’s this you ask? Treason? Sedition? Lies, lies, lies!?
“The Obama-Democrat Left has mounted the first successful counter-revolution -- against the American Revolution -- in our history. Using an incessant series of attacks by a fifth column, the intent of the counter-revolution is to eradicate the effects of the American Revolution. The most magnificent society ever created hangs in the balance.” (READ the whole thing. That is a direct order.)
“The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
In 4 parts without commercial interruption.”
My, my, my: how that crazy Right Wing over-reacts! There they go again, entirely mis-misunderstanding the role of the State Run Media (SRM) in squelching bad news about the economy, unemployment, terrorism, corruption,and incompetence. They’re simply trying to help keep things calm so they can carry on. Otherwise,there will be rioting in our streets.
So now we have the current Right Wing outrage du jour over that messy little une affaire d'etat in Libya. Clearly an al-Qaida led terrorist attack on U.S. sovereign territory on the anniversary of 9/11 would not prove helpful to Team-Obama, so the SRM happily bought into the “Look, over there – an Islamophobic movie!” meme as cover. As usual, the Right Wing was having none of it.
So right on cue, there they were, the Republicans; still trying to make a big “f***ing” deal out of all this. Finally, as Mark Steyn explains, our deputy campaign manager set them all straight:
"The entire reason that this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan."
Thus, Stephanie Cutter, President Obama's deputy campaign manager, speaking on CNN about an armed attack on the 9/11 anniversary that left a U.S. consulate a smoking ruin and killed four diplomatic staff, including the first American ambassador to be murdered in a third of a century. To discuss this event is apparently to "politicize" it and to distract from the real issues the American people are concerned about. For example, Obama spokesperson Jen Psaki, speaking on board Air Force One on Thursday: "There's only one candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird and Elmo, and he is riding on this plane."
Obviously, Miss Cutter is right: A healthy mature democracy should spend its quadrennial election on critical issues like the Republican Party's war on puppets rather than attempting to "politicize" the debate by dragging in stuff like foreign policy, national security, the economy and other obscure peripheral subjects. But, alas, it was her boss who chose to "politicize" a security fiasco and national humiliation in Benghazi. (snip)
There was no demonstration against an Islamophobic movie that just got a little out of hand. Indeed, there was no movie protest at all. Instead, a U.S. consulate was destroyed and four of its personnel were murdered in one of the most sophisticated military attacks ever launched at a diplomatic facility.
So now we need to focus on determining who to blame this mess on and - uh, oh! Some members of Team-Obama are apparently more expendable than others!
White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters during a press conference Friday that responsibility for the consulate in Libya fell on the State Department, not the White House.
Leading some people think it’s Hil who’s going to be offered up to fall on Big Guy’s sword for him:
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month.
Personally I don’t think that’s the way to go. Not that anyone’s asked for my opinion; butt seriously, Big Dawg has a lot more clout around town than BFF Susan Rice ever will.
Now, it seems, that Team Obama has decided to try and save U.N. ambassador Susan Rice — whose reputation in the IC could hardly be lower — and perhaps press secretary Jay Carney as well by tossing the nation’s spooks under the bus, in which direction they’re also nudging Hillary Clinton.
But you can’t burn all your friends, and the Obama forces already have a lot fewer allies than they think they do. The disrespectful way they treated former White House chief of staff William Daley is likely to come back to haunt them in the graveyards of Chicago, and the bad blood between them and the Clintons hasn’t gone away, despite Bill’s bonhomie at the convention.
That “haunt them in the graveyards of Chicago” has me worried. In order for us to WTF, we need a humungous turnout from those “graveyards of Chicago.”
And let’s not forget, bonhomie evaporates pretty quickly in this town, and if Hil turns up with tire tracks on her back Bubba might suddenly remember at least one President who could have done a much better job with the economy than little BO has.
I don’t know how this is going to turn out butt seriously, you would thing that Mark Steyn wouldn’t be the only one who smells an opportunity around here:
Surely, even among Obama’s media sycophants, there must be someone who recognizes that all the cushy court eunuch posts are filled and, rather than being the umpteenth extra in the crowd scene, there’s a reputation, a Pulitzer and maybe a movie deal to be made here.
Of course, “investigative journalism” used to mean independently digging up facts to expose the truth to the light of day. Now all it requires is showing up for the daily talking points.That’s probably why the Pulitzer isn’t what it used to be either.
“The revolution WILL put you in the driver's seat.
The revolution will not be televised,
WILL not be televised,WILL NOT BE TELEVISED.
The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live.”
The next revolution begins November 6. Don’t miss it.
NOTE: For an interesting, and related, Sunday read Camille Paglia explains how far Liberals have wandered off the reservation and why the revolution now belongs to the Right in this Salon interview.
“Over the last 20 years, freedom has become a conservative watch word, and liberals have lost their claim to it. There is a huge difference between contemporary upper-middle-class bourgeois Democratic liberalism and the fire-breathing 1960s leftism that was the mood of my college years. After all, it all began with the free speech movement at Berkeley! But liberals have now been trained to be docile and obedient.”
