LADY OR TIGER?

Oh my, oh my! The mean stream media is going catatonic – Hillary “misspoke on Bosnia”. The sky is falling! The sky is falling. It endlessly replays the scene in Bosnia while ignoring the fact that she immediately responded that she misspoke.

But not all reporters are lemmings. Craig Crawford thinks for himself, he wrote: “Although seemingly embarrassing for her, this episode did serve to provoke repeated airings of video showing Clinton on her trip to Bosnia 12 years ago looking more like a Commander in Chief than like a First Lady.” http://blogs.cqpolitics.com/trailmix/

Where was the media’s truth squad when BO lied about hearing his pastor say the inflammatory statements in his church? Remember those racists’ rants from BO’s mentor, Wright, for 20 years? Remember the sermons that they were forced to report on because Bloggers and Utubers made the stink big enough so they had to notice?

Must be they were just too overcome with their rapture and adoration for BO to notice that his alibis and excuses oration was as divisive as it was misleading. It was a stunning example of, “the [white] Devil made me do it” passing the blame ploy. How they raved on, calling it “worthy of Lincoln” and other superfluous accolades, but they neglected to check out - http://americanrhetoric.com

Or perhaps they didn’t want us to know that among the 100 greatest speeches notably by MLK, Jesse Jackson and other civil rights leaders was the historic speech given by President Lyndon B Johnson pleading to Congress and the Nation to pass the historic civil rights bill. LBJ quoted MLK " We Shall Overcome " and it is titled under this name. There also, among the 100 greatest speeches was First Lady, Hillary Clinton's historic challenge in China to recognize women's rights as human rights.

And when it comes to outright lies, the media mavens turn a deaf ear to the many times BO and his campaign have twisted words and facts as they accuse every person who supports HRC of playing the race card.

How Obama played the race card and blamed Hillary Clinton “A review of what actually happened shows that the charges that the Clintons played the "race card" were not simply false but deliberately manufactured by the Obama camp and trumpeted by a credulous and/or compliant press corps in order to strip away her once formidable majority among black voters and to outrage affluent, college-educated white liberals as well as college students.”

It has been BO’s modus operendi to pretend he is above the fray while his supporters plant the rumors and do the dirty work. He wants to appear to be pure, precious and unsullied, and has done that, despite his many lies and disinformation, with the loving help of many in the media.

To paraphrase Bush, BO could say to the media, “Some call you the free press but I call you my base.”

In Frank Stockton’s short story there were two doors; behind one is the Lady and behind the other is the Tiger. The doors are metaphorical in this Dem Primary saga. Here the voters have a choice and they are beginning to turn away from the Lady.

It may come down to which door the Super Delegates will open. Will they choose the one hiding a tough fighter for human rights or the one hiding the race baiter who disenfranchised the voters of Florida and Michigan? Lady or Tiger?

The Lady is “typical” - a stereotype - pouting and petulant and pedantic. The precious one that our media covers up, protects and worships. He is crafty, untruthful, self-aggrandizing and phony; blocking votes in two states because he knows he cannot win them shows he will do anything to win.

The Tiger is strong, dependable, experienced and a fighter with guts and ability that has inspired so many of us. Hillary Rodham Clinton will truly be a Tiger for us in the Oval Office.
