The liberal media
loved Obama to death

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/10/2012 5:36:54 AM

It was in Denver one week ago that the long-running romance between Barack Obama and the national press -- aka the "Slobbering Love Affair," as Bernard Goldberg put it -- hit the wall. The motel bill, unpaid these many long months and ages, at long last came due. It had been the real thing, not a commonplace fling with your generic Democrat, but the love of a lifetime, the genuine article, the sum of all dreams: He was not just a Democrat, he was also a liberal. He was not just a liberal, he also biracial,

I wish there was a way to make sure the journ-O-listers will have to find the unemployment line. I always wonder why people who have been so blessed can hate this country so much. Wouldn't it just be easier to move and leave the rest of us alone?

1st biggest debate lose: Obama. 2nd biggest debate loser: the liberal media who have obviously been lying about both Obama and Romney. 3rd biggest debate loser: Democrat campaign ads.

People trust their twitter feeds more than the media. Think about that for a moment.

One of the better articles of the weeks before the debate. Mama was right. Familiarity does indeed breed contempt.

Excellent article. We almost followed the pied piping state media to our ruination. Pray to God we can salvage and rebuild.

Great article but even Naomi can't seem to shake the media fairy tale of this guy's ability to write and talk. Absent Bill Ayers' books and TOTUS, Barky is about as creative and pleasing to the ear as gansta rap-which is actually more in line with his persona.

One of those articles that you kinda wish had a page 2 to it. Like a lot of you all, I've been feeling a bit cheery lately. And I have the misery of the Obama media cheerleaders to thank for that delicious shadenfruede sandwich.

Having lived large through the first half of Lincoln’s fooling-the-people parable, OBamaniacs in and out of the MSM are awakening in the second half of it with a hangover.

Obama was the one the MSM had been waiting for. They will make excuses for him after his epic loss in November until somebody better comes along.

Not necessarily, #10. If Obama's performance gets bad enough, the whole MSM will have to back away from him to preserve the lie that liberalism equals truth. Liberalism must be preserved at all costs, even abandonment of the Won.

Obama is a Comet, arching across the Liberal firmament. Dazzling, beautiful.
But reality is-it is nothing but rock, ice

May I be allowed to whisper a word of dissent? In spite of the abundant good sense on display in this brief essay, Ms. Emery repeats the mantra that Obama is a great writer ("...he was gifted at writing..."). Has she not encountered the unanswered and unanswerable work of literary sleuth Jack Cashill?

We don't know how Obama performed in academia; for some reason those records are hidden: even results from standardized tests like the SAT and LSAT. You can be damn sure that if he had earned a Phi Beta Kappa key with a GPA of 3.95, or graduated in the top portion of his classes at Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard Law, we'd have been constantly reminded of it. If he had written anything intellectually penetrating and original for the Harvard Law Review, it would have been nailed to our brows, probably by David Brooks.

The totality of his reputation for brilliance rests on his presumed authorship of Dreams from My Father, which reads as if it were written by a stylistically graceful professional writer like Bill Ayers, because it was. Obama friend and benefactor Ayers himself has said as much. Pontificators from one side of the the political spectrum to the other have swallowed this brilliance canard, falling all over themselves to lionize this massively overhyped, stuttering communicator, although we have neither heard nor read anything remotely memorable or graceful from the Obama vomitorium/walnut since the publication of this alleged autobiographical memoir, certainly not since the 2007-08 national campaign. Remember that some dramatic pauses happen because the purveyor of the balloon juice doesn't know what the hell to say next. This anti-American fraud must be unmasked for his slavish supporters to see.

Dammit, it's the STATIST media, not the liberal media, liberal means freedom. The word "liberal" in both headlines is used as a cover up word for big government media, collectivist lap dog media, ANTI liberal media. The so called MSM media is the big promoter of big brother communist socialist style of taking away the rights of each and every individual citizens Kill babies, vote without ID, confiscate guns, force medicine on all citizens with IRS armed guards, ruin doctors and nurses lives, keep businesses out of business, forcing more unemployment, putting more people on governmant dole, divisively knocking the successes of individuals, promoting union graft (by their own unionized newscaster comrades), tax, tax, tax, spend, spend spend, into trillions of oblivion, make no budget, be totally irresponsivle and all of it, endlessly printing fake money, with the backing and indoctrination of all MSM.
Good article, their golden boy "dissolving"
right in front of their eyes like drizzling excrement. How sad for them to have the adored one betray THEM. All of you, MUST STOP CALLING THESE DESTROYERS LIBERAL.
Overcome your fears, wake UP, call them nazis, commies, reds, traitors, bums, any word that makes you nervous to actually say. Go ahead, try it in the privacy of your own home. Get used to it. It's the semantic way to win, and it won't cost a dime.

It's not only that they loved him, BO is their creation. He was eyed since his 2004 convention speech and everything about him was constructed. His background and racial makeup were certainly great raw materials to begin with but everything else was manufactured and as we are clearly seeming now, fake.

He is not particularly intelligent. He is not a good speaker unless everything is very carefully crafted for him. His understanding of issues is superficial at best. His personality is poorly suited to be a reconciler and uniter because he is too self centered. His idea of unity is to do things his way.

It's not only that his record is one of failure, he doesn't have any of the basic requirements to be able to do any better. We have the media to thank for this caricature of a president. They created him and loved the product of their efforts. Pygmalion revisited, but BO didn't work out nearly as well for the media.

And after, hopefully, Obozo is defeated next month, what you will hear from the drive-by's is that Obozo just didn't implement the socialist policies correctly. I mean, he made some minor mistakes that caused the downfall of what all of them were trying to do. "For the people", of course.

I get nervous when pundits talk about a future event as if it already happened. Ø is still President. He is still running huge leads in vast portions of our nation- very important voter sections. He is still a media darling. He still has very dirty, dangerous friends in high places. This is not over - not by a long shot. The day after is a vision I dream about. I will stay up all night election night. I will celebrate, the day after Romney wins--- if he does. I will bury my flag, my weapons and my American soul if he does not.

obama is the time bomb that has gone off, and his destructive agenda is weakening America daily. The cabal that everyone calls the 'liberal' media is actively working to help him implement his tyranny.
Tyranny is evil; he and they are equals in evil doing any and everything they can to implement his 'fundamental transformation' of America to whatever his ideology envisions.
Justice is long overdue and it will not be complete without an exhaustive scouring and expulsion of all the America-hating media sycophants!

Bingo! He knew they always had his back.

Personally I had this happen in my family. My MIL loved my BIL to death. She had every excuse in the book for his criminal actions. She was right there to protect him even at the expense of other family members. After he had ruined his life, sadly he died at age 50 of alcoholism. She didn't do the right thing by protecting him. Instead of helping him through fixing his life, she simply denied that he had ever done anything wrong. Sorry for all the personal information, but this really made sense to me.

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
