The only way get elected in last yrs game of leap-frog to the far left, otherwise known as the Dem primary. Was to be against, and call the Iraq war lost, call Bush stupid, call Cheney evil, complain about torture, wiretapping, the patriot act, NAFTA, on and on.
And say that we were heading towards the 2nd Great Depression. These were not debating points, they were rock solid talking points, that all Dem’s had to subscribe to, in order to get the dailyKos, MoveOn vote (and dollars).
Once the general election began and even before, the media signed onto most of these false assumption’s as a way to unfairly influence the electorate and frame the debate in a manner that most helped their golden child: Obama.
One of the ugliest charges made by the Dem’s and taken as gospel by their hack lackeys in the media. That has now come home to roost, is that the USA tortured detainees held in Gitmo and elsewhere around the world, This was the standard drum beat and the change that Obama promised, he would save our nation from the scourge of torture that the evil Cheney and stupid Bush had allowed. (Pelosi and Rockefeller did too, but no need to mention that)
Dem’s and the Media also qualified their smears of our government, the CIA and our troops with the dishonest quip “that it doesn’t work”. At least they could have the spine to admit that they don’t care if it works, they are against it regardless. If thousands die in another terror attack? They don’t care, at least they don’t condone putting a bug on someone? But no, they have to lie to themselves and other as they do with most PC nonsense and deny the truth of the matter. As Cheney says: release all the memos Obama! Tell the whole truth! Not just the truth that suits you!
Bush did not lie when he said the USA does not torture, we do not, and have not as a nation called for, or condoned torture. Waterboarding, nudity, sleep deportation, stress positions are all used on our own military troops during training, being throw into a false noise making wall (notice how the MSM leaves that out) with a neck brace on, and having a bug put into a box you’re in, is not torture! PC libs seem to believe that if you don’t get cookies and a bed time story at nite-nite that’s torture. Torture is having life, limb, and or mind permanently damaged. The USA does not and has not tortured.
That being the case, I say “bring it on” in regards to the calls for witch hunt that Obama must now reluctantly agree to. The loony left demands that heads must roll, the deranged hatred of Bush has to be justified, and the hatemongers need their hate fix. This will doom the Dem’s in ‘10 and ‘12 and Obama knows it, but the loony left who lives in their echo chamber are clueless or don’t care. Leahy (the most partisan Sen. on the hill) and his kangaroo court will only serve to turn the regular folk against the Dem’s. Lets not forget that if those who approved of the “enhanced interrogation techniques” are to be brought to justice for daring to save American lives, then Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Rockefeller also have their heads on chopping block, cause they were informed and gave advice and consent to this program in 2002, another small tid-bit of info the MSM seems to miss?
On the economy: For over a yr CNN had their bold crawler announcing that “the Economy was Issue #1″ notice that crawler disappeared as soon as the election was over. Why the need to announce your choice of the most important story, if not to pound into every ones head. Even in the debate set aside for National Security, Jim Lerher dedicated 50% of the air time and led off the debate with questions on the economy, Obama was on the campaign trail day after day calling the stock market meltdown and the burstead housing bubble the worst economic situation since the Great Depression and the media echoed those words exactly, He beat up McCain up for saying the fundamentals were strong. And then team Obama said the same thing himself once he got elected! The Dem’s as a whole were saying as far back as 06 that the nation was in a terrible recession. and they were never once called on their lies by the MSM.
Now you cant turn on the TV today without an expert telling us that confidence is paramount in a market economy, well, if thats the case why was the media and Dem’s down selling the economy for the last 3 yrs? I’m sure the calls for the coming of the next Great Depression by all had zero with our current economic woes? Huh?
Obama also ran and promised change on NAFTA, Iraq, and wiretapping. But since the primary Obama has been walking away from those promises. Basically the man is a liar who promised the far left to end the hated programs of team Bush. As soon as its no longer to his political advantage he throws those promises out the window. In a question posed to him last week about his 2004 statement on Cuba, his answer was “when was that 2004? what was I doing in 2004? running for Sen? that was eons ago!” So Obama thinks he can’t be held responsible for his lies, incindiery comments, and promises made on the campaign trails of the past. Over 510 promises in 08 to be exact!. But now due to the many broken oaths made to voter. Obama is now forced to give in the torture witch hunt.
The point of this note is: the MSM and the Dems ran the election on false assumptions, given in soaring oratory by a dishonest vaporous blowhard, that in the end has and will make our nation less safe, it also helped tank the economy. The show has just begun. Let the torture trials begin, for it is Obama, the Dem’s, and the MSM who will be on trial in the court of public opinion. Can anyone remember Oliver North? Bring it on Obama, Bring it on!!
