Signs accumulate that liberals
are embarrassed by Obama

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 10/7/2012 11:27:42 AM

President Obama's poor debate performance may have shattered some illusions among his supporters in the liberal media elite. Having invested themselves in the illusion of him as the fulfillment of the liberal dream of shattering glass ceilings and pernicious racial stereotypes, his evident lack of preparation felt like a betrayal to some. They are starting to catch on that they bought into an illusion. So they are turning on him. Witness the shocking empty chair cover on the New Yorker, edited by Obama hagiographer David Remnick: The comments which follow savaging Obama are worth reading, too.

Some of the best fun I have with fellow Blacks is to end my litany of worsening conditions for all Americans and particularly Black under Zero with two reality check assertions...first, if McCain had won in 2008 and these conditions existed, Blacks would be in the streets protesting...second, if the first Black in major league baseball had not been MVP Jackie Robinson, but some guy that batted under .150 for 4 years, we would have been embarrassed and alleging his selection was a set-up to begin with...

Liberals are easily taken in by performances (IMO). The 'good show' is what matters - not performance. When the performer flops, they recoil in horror, which is what has happened to so many of their nominees (LBJ, McGovern, Carter, Mondale, Algore, Dukakis, Kerry, and now Obama).

~~Ridicule is a fast spreading contagion. It once was confined to the conservative blogosphere and talk radio. Now it has breached the walls of the media elite.~~

.....so far, just a little teeny-tiny bit....will wait to see something akin to the beating taken by, say, Sarah Palin.

It would be instructive if #1 would share elsewhere, if not in this thread, what his/her "fellow blacks" say in response to his no-doubt true litany of conditions perpetuating misery for them.

"Lurking in the background is the specter of becoming a laughingstock."

For those of us who began laughing at the presidential farce of barry obama in 2008 (if not his actions and his very real destruction of the country) it's great to now have a lot of company. The lazy, incompetent, vacationing, golf-playing fraud gave his hand away very early. Some people just need to be hit with a 2 x 4 before their eyes open.

#5, one get's a stange momentary silence or pause...remember most Blacks lined up behind Hillary and Bill before Zero started to gain traction in the primaries and then jumped on board...then there was the shock of his election and now an under current that he is in over his head...in short, Zero is running out of excuses...

At least, poster #1, many of those blacks who have turned on obama are planning on staying home and not voting. I applaud them for at least that and certainly do offer the ones I know encouragement to stay home, indeed. If obit loses just 5% of the black vote, that will be a significant victory for truth. Hopefully, with obit being outed as the first gay president will cost him at least 5%. At least!

This is not true or even possible. I mean, obama is the smartest person in America to be elected president. He is genius level. I assume his performance is a dark mystery to us mortals because we are too stupid to understand his brilliant strategy. s/o The media will be kissing his butt again before the weekend is over.

I dunno, I hope it's true. All the Democrats I know are voting for His Majesty again. The only difference being they can't pretend anymore that it's about sparkly unicorns. This time, a vote for Obama is an intentional vote for Decline, no way to hide it. The Democrats I know are OK with this.

While I agree with #14, enablers jumping ship often happens when a flim-flam artist is exposed. Those participating in the scam are worried that they, too, will be exposed. Thus, while liberals cannot be "embarrassed", they must cover their "bare-a**es".

Libs have no problem championing any empty suit, they just don't appreciate hard work experience same as we do. They are gullible and knee jerk responsive without questioning anything. Embarrassed a bit but more quick to blame others for their disgrace.

To #1's excellent baseball analogy: If the "Jackie Robinson" batting .150, and maybe leading the lead in strike outs and errors in the field, were today, the media would be full of excuses: Nobody knew how hard it would be, etc., etc.

Nothing looks as hopelessly star-crossed, or spawns as many excuses, as bad leadership.

It's as true of the smallest subcommittee on the school PTA as it is in the Oval Office.

Anecdotal, but three of the most liberal people I know are voting for Romney. Also, #1's analysis is excellent.

SNL SKEWERED O and MSNBC last night. They had him falling asleep at the podium. However liberal they may be, one of the best things they ALWAYS do is paint an accurate picture of the Presidential debates. Remember 2000, when they so accurately portrayed GW and Algore in each debate? I swear to this day that that made a difference in a lot of votes because it accurately showed the stupidity of Algore. Yes, I think Mr. Lifson is exactly right. (Natch.)

Couple of more analogies...Blacks used to travel for miles to nearest neighbor with a radio to listen to a Joe Louis fight, and would expect him to Win, not just enter the ring! Ditto with tracking Casius Clay and didn't care when he changed his name cuz he was winning. And as to Zero's slide into a so-call Black dialect, most recently displayed in the 2007 video before a group of Black preachers, I challenge anyone to find a speech of the most celebrated Black preacher of the past century speaking in a so-called dialect. We learned to hold our breath throughout a MLK, Jr. appearance on a Meet the Press, etc., just hoping he wouldn't split a verb and would "represent"! He elevated, Zero deflates...damn champion of food stamps over jobs...

#4, Alinsky talks of the value of ridicule, of how hard it is to fight, even when it is completely unfair.

In this case, it's fair. And it shows why Clint Eastwood's empty chair skit was so effective.

But why? Why should they be embarrassed by Obama? Just because he didn't articulate their position well, doesn't change the fact that he believes everything they do. They should be saying, So what?

Or else...They should have been embarrassed long ago. Did they not see the styrofoam columns. The seal of the president- elect? The podium and TelePrompTer in the elementary classroom? The awful rudeness to the Supremes at the SOTU? The photoshopped pictures? The endless golf? The bows to muslims? the royal gaffes? the unearned Nobel? I mean, come on.

So NOW you're embarrassed? News flash, liberals. Not ONE thing has changed. Your boyfriend is a major dweeb.

Yes, the Leftist intelligentsia persuaded themselves that Obambi was a "genius."

Michael Beschloss, a liberal "presidential historian" and subscriber to this belief, provided one of the most unintentionally funny moments in radio history when this claim was abruptly challenged by Don Imus.

Beschloss, a guest on the Imus radio show, had just gushed that Obama had the "highest IQ" of any US president. An incredulous Imus interjected "What is his IQ? How do you know? What IS Obama's IQ?"

The stunned Beschloss had no answer.

May I suggest another reason the left is embarrassed by the Obamanation of Desolation?

They are embarrassed because he unabashedly implemented their policies and they didn't work.

Now they cannot criticize him without being labeled a racist, mother hating, baby killing bigot because anyone who questioned Obama in 2008 was labeled as such. They have no other candidate at this point.

CNN reporter ignites firestorm overseas
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple. In a long piece devoted to Politico’s Mike Allen, Wemple chronicles the confluence of advertising and journalism via what a practice called “native advertising,” inserting material that looks like it could be an ordinary item written by a journalist, but which actually is paid advertising. Wemple describes native advertising as “the tricks that publishers deploy to elide

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
