When Americans Saw the Real Obama
Wall Street Journal, by Peggy Noonan

Original Article

Posted By:Moritz55, 10/26/2012 1:02:42 AM

We all say Ohio, Ohio, Ohio. But it's all still Denver, Denver, and the mystery that maybe isn't a mystery at all. If Cincinnati and Lake County go for Mitt Romney on Nov. 6 it will be because of what happened in Denver on Oct. 3. If Barack Obama barely scrapes through, if there's a bloody and prolonged recount, it too will be because of Denver. Nothing echoes out like that debate. It was the moment that allowed Mr. Romney to break through, that allowed dismay with the incumbent to coalesce, that allowed voters to consider the alternative. What the debate did to the president is

Comments:
This must have been hard for her to write. Reading between the lines, you cannot miss the personal note of regret for also having been fooled. At least, I hope that is the case. After a disappointing spell wandering in the wilderness, it is good to see Peggy Noonan getting it.

Peggy wets her finger, sticks it in the air, and writes a column.

Wow, I think Peggy has had an epiphany. Welcome back to the real world, Peggy. You've spent too long in Lala Land.

The Beltway Bubble may have grown used to him, but the country didn't. They just weren't enthused yet with Romney because they didn't know him, so were thus in a quandry as to how to get the bum out of office.

Agree with #3. And, I have to say, I don't know if Romney will turn out to be as conservative as I hope, but I am impressed by him none thel ess. He is simply a good, decent man, who genuinely loves and enjoys his family, and who genuinely likes this country and the people in it. He reminds me a bit of Ronald Reagan in that regard...

Poster #1 is correct. Peggy eloquently states the obvious and inevitable. Always has.

It was at this point I knew Romney would win. Peggy sealed the deal!

Hey Pegs, the millions of unemployed called, they want their four years back. You know, the four years you obamabots took from them all for the sake of making some kind of sick, twisted, pseudo absolution for the sins of slavery, which none of us had anything to do with anyway.

Noonan is still basking in the love she got from the left on her Palin take down. I don't care if she's in favor of Romney or not,I still consider her a sellout.

Whatever happened to that other supposed conservative writer,Kathleen Parker who did her part to smear Palin.Her TV show with the pervert Spitzer lasted about 10 minutes.

Wow, a staple of D.C. gossip for three years!! Those inside-the-beltway types are super-sharp, aren't they? And quick!

Hell, most of the posters here knew from Day One that Obama is a narcissist and a fraudster.

It doesn't matter to me how much remorseful apologizing and back-pedaling Peggy No-Brains reduces herself to. She will always be the turn-coat RINO she is. And being an outcast, not worthy of respect is befitting her.

Having fallen for Obama, makes her even more naive and stupid than Obama himself. It never ceases to amaze me at how easily some will sell out their own principles for a little bit of face time or fame.

Tens of millions of us Americans saw the Real Obama back in 2008. Peggy saw the Real Obama for the first time earlier this month during the opening debate -- or, more likely, after the post-debate polls started to go Romney's way.

What #18 said. Sorry, Peggy, *we* are Americans and *we* saw the real Obama years ago. You're a little late to party, honey, and our dance cards are full.

Note: What truly annoys me about Peggy Noonan of late is her smarmy pontificating to us rubes. Such condescending elitism.

I read the article. Where the heck has she been these last four years? I knew four years ago that Obama was an arrogant fraud. Peggy Noonan is a snooty phony so-called conservative. All she cares about is getting invited to the trendy cocktail parties. Also I can't stand that annoying habit of hers of closing her eyes when she expresses one of her "deep thoughts".

Last time I saw Peg, I was flipping through the channels and as I quickly passes by Morning Joe, there she was, fighting with Mika for camera time.

That's right, Peg was on MSNBC, passing intel to the enemy.

Don't know why I even bothered to read something the 'eternal ingenue' wrote since I gave up on her during 43. Once again she is leading the charge of snivling Obama navel-gazers. She is almost as vapid as he is! Of course Obama has no skills--he hasn't needed any thanks to Affirmative Action.

Noonan typically is clueless as to why Obama is losing--his performance in Denver was not the reason--it was Romney's performance that sealed the deal (a completely independent vector from Obama's). People wanted an alternative--anything--to get us away from Obama. Sure, they didn't want to articulate that fact because no one enjoys admitting that he is wrong. Romney's performance meant to swing voters that they have an alternative to the malaise of the Obama administration. It certainly helped that Obama was his usual jerk-self, but that wasn't the driving factor. Americans know they have an alternative (like in 1980).

And as usual, Noonan missed the real issue--talk about self-delusion.

Obama's true self has not been a secret; it's been out there for the world to see for 5 years now. People like Peggy saw it, but chose to ignore/deny the truth because somehow it was racist to tell the truth about Mr. Hopey/Changey. Welcome back, but please heed the lesson and don't be so naive and complicit next time!

Who is ´Boo´ Burnham?
Wall Street Journal, by Peggy Noonan    Original Article
Posted By: Moritz55- 1/22/2014 9:27:17 AM     Post Reply
It is astonishing and cannot go unremarked that Mississippi’s Gov. Frank “Boo” Burnham, the conservative who won a 2011 landslide, gave an interview Friday in which he demonstrated all that is wrong in American politics—all its division, its intolerance, its ignorance and sickness. Burnham damned and removed from the rolls of the respectable everyone in his state who is pro-choice, who is for some form of gun control, and who supports gay marriage.

North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber II courted controversy over the weekend when he called Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), one of two African-American members of the U.S. Senate, a puppet. Scott recently responded to those comments by saying that he thought it was regrettable for an NAACP official to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend to attack a black elected representative. “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber is quoted as saying of Scott in an extensive profile in the South Carolina outlet The State..

Would Democrats embrace JFK now?

Posted By: Moritz55- 10/21/2013 10:38:23 AM     Post Reply
As Democrats begin maneuvering for the 2016 presidential race, there isn’t one who would think of disparaging John F. Kennedy’s stature as a Democratic Party hero. Yet it’s a pretty safe bet that none would dream of running on Kennedy’s approach to government or embrace his political beliefs. Today’s Democratic Party — the home of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Al Gore — wouldn’t give the time of day to a candidate like JFK.

Much is wrong with Washington these days, including much of what is said about what is wrong. Many Americans say there is “too much politics” in Washington. Actually, there is too little. Barack Obama deplores “politics as usual” here. But recently Washington has been tumultuous because politics, as the Framers understood it, has disintegrated. Obama has been complicit in this collapse.

How America Spies on Europe and the UN

President Obama promised that NSA surveillance activities were aimed exclusively at preventing terrorist attacks. But secret documents from the intelligence agency show that the Americans spy on Europe, the UN and other countries. The European Union building on New York's Third Avenue is an office tower with a glittering facade and an impressive view of the East River. Chris Matthews, the press officer for the EU delegation to the United Nations, opens the ambassadors' room on the 31st floor, gestures toward a long conference table and says: "This is where all ambassadors from our 28 members meet every Tuesday at 9 a.m." It is the place where Europe seeks to forge a common policy on the UN.

The younger Bush, a Fort Worth resident, filed a campaign treasurer appointment Wednesday, a requirement for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law, Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, told The Associated Press.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
