There’s an old saying, “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” So let’s be sure the “Gander” gets his share of the good and let’s play the game by MSNBC, CNN, Media Matters, NYT and CBS rules.
The Liberal News Media is chunking along doing what they do best, attack, defame and trying to permanently damage one’s reputation. Michelle Bachmann is definitely on their hit list and they’re hung up on her verbal gaffes.
Today seemed to be a great day to check out Obama (Mr. Flip Flops) social and diplomatic blunders. The great orator seems to have distinct memory problems, which probably will be blamed on his teleprompter and speech writers. Historian, he is not and definitely not a stand – up comedian.
“Mr. Flip Flops” political and social blunders:
Going back to 2007, during an interview with the Boston Globe, Obama said, “The president doesn’t have the power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve a threat to the U.S.
Mr. Flip – flop changed his mind and sent us into Libya, the 3rd war- Libya wasn’t a threat to the U.S!
This spring when discussing our unemployment problems, he royally pissed off the public saying, he guess jobs weren’t “shovel ready.” What a degrading childish statement for the Commander in Chief to make on National TV. He actually thought he’d made a “funny” – Americans didn’t think so!
Here’s another example of Obama’s disengagement and preoccupation – he didn’t have any of his ducks in a row as at the White House ceremony where he was presenting a Medal of Honor.
He said, “I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”
The problem was Monti was receiving it posthumously. Monti, 30, was leading a scouting mission in 2006 along the Pakistan border when a resupply helicopter blew the unit’s cover; Monti twice ran into gunfire to retrieve a wounded comrade before he was killed by an enemy grenade. Jay Carney explained it away by saying the President didn’t have a prepared speech.
His screw up when talking to American University, telling the students that Emma Lazarus wrote a poem to pay for construction of the Statue of Lady Liberty – wrong Emma wrote her poem for a contest that would in turn help pay for the base or pedestal.
Actually her poem was sold at auction and the proceeds went to the Pedestal Committee. So much for that Obama blip and by the way Our Lady’s torch is to light the way to Liberty throughout the World. But, let’s give him a little slack here – like Politifact would say he’s about ½ right.
On his recent tour tip toeing thru the tulips in the Midwest states, he kept telling his audiences, “There is nothing wrong with our country” except for the “broken” political system.
This has to be the error of all errors – The “broken” political system came from Obama’s deals behind closed doors, his spending addiction and his flagrant cases of wrong doing. The broken political system could be fixed immediately if he’d just step down from his present position.
Here’s but a few of the reasons we have a broken system. For example, Obama knowingly stipulated that millions of dollars would go to ATF for the Fast and Furious Gunrunner program, the Libyan War, the attempt to try terrorists on our turf and latest the illegal alien problem where he’s offering amnesty to the illegals. The Obama Redistribution System that has brought our Nation to its knees.
And the time he was on Jay Leno’s show describing his bowling skills and telling Jay he was improving his form by practicing in the White House bowling alley in the basement. In an attempt to match Jay’s humor, he said, “It’s like — it was like Special Olympics or something,” Obama says. Not funny!
May of this year, he signed guest book at London’s Westminster Abbey with his signature followed by the date, 24th of May, 2008. At least Michelle Bachmann knows her name and that the year is 2011.
In his 2008 campaign, he was patting himself on the back saying he’d been in 57 states and he thinks he has one to go – like I’ve been saying this person must be from a different planet.
In an interview with George Stephanopoulos Obama said, “What I was suggesting—you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith.” George dived in trying to save him and said, you mean your “Christian Faith.”
This could be described as being caught with your pants down. But, who knows tomorrow Mr. “Flip Flop” may try out Atheism especially if he thinks it would get him some votes for 2012.
So to the Liberal News Media, I will leave you with this closing thought, “May the Bird Of Paradise” fly up your nose and remember, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Winston Churchill
