How quickly things change in Obamaland. It seems like only yesterday he was claiming over and over that his words DO matter. Now he is saying that either we misunderstood what he said or that he didn’t choose the right words.
Bush needed translators to explain what his words were and the media complied; now BO, who seemingly cannot use the words to say what he means, needs the media to translate what words he meant to say.
It appeared for a while there that voters who were fed up with nearly 8 years of the malapropos and fractured syntax of Bush were opting for clarity. They thought BO spoke so clearly when he said things like, “Change” – “Yes we can”, and all his other oft repeated slogans. Then it happened.
Bit by bit the façade of sainthood got peeled off and most of it came from his own mouth. Recently he hit a gaffe trifecta. Commenting on abortion: “The mistake that pro-choice forces have sometimes made in the past, and this is a generalization so it has not always been the case, has been to not acknowledge the wrenching moral issues involved in it.” Oops! UNTRUE.
Second, there was his comment on “typical white people” as he claimed that all whites are racists, seeking to force voters to examine their guilt at the slavery in America’s past.
And thirdly, and most recent, he embellished his white racist remarks by denigrating Pennsylvania’s working class by saying: “And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Sounds a bit Karl Marxie to us: “Die Religion ... ist das Opium des Volkes.”
We never trusted BO’s words from the beginning. He came across as a package all wrapped up and no one was allowed to see what was inside. When attempts were made to peel back the layers of the mask, they were met by charges of “racism” – and the media pounced – not on BO but on anyone who pointed a finger at what he had done in the past.
Now his own words are tearing back the layers of his past actions and his mask is coming off. The mean-steam-media is rushing in to wrap him up again led by Arianna Huffington who tells you it is all HRC’s fault.
We must not let them lead us astray because there is still so much to learn about this man that the media and the DNC demand that we nominate. More gates in his past besides these: R E Z K O gate,
B I T T E R gate, Rev W R I G H T gate, AYERS gate,
F A R A K H A N gate.
Nearly a year ago, Martha Zollar wrote about how he stretched the truth and misrepresented facts, ending her piece by paraphrasing former Texas Governor, Ann Richards: “Poor, Obama -- he can help it, he’s got a silver foot in his mouth.” http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=20707&keywords=gaffes
And just recently, Kentucky Representative Geoff Davis, told of a “highly classified, national security simulation” that he attended with Obama. “He could not make a decision in that simulation that related to a nuclear threat to this country,” he warned.
Former Congressman [TX], Dick Armey is sure BO will win the Primary. He said, “Because the Democrats choose their least qualified person.”
As for HRC, there is a very interesting piece in Politico [4/13/08 by John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei titled: What Clinton wishes she could say. Politico has been a harsh critic of Clinton in the past. Judge for yourselves.
HRC cleaned BO’s clock in the debate this week in Philly and how the mean-stream media howled in anger. We especially enjoyed Keith Olbermann’s rants because the Precious One was getting tough questions– remember how he thought it was just great when Russet went after HRC.
