Is Maureen Dowd turning conservative?
Island Turtle ^ | January 10, 2010 | Corky Boyd

Posted on 01/10/2010 12:59:43 PM PST by Corky Boyd

In her op-ed piece today, entitled Captain Obvious Learns the Limits of Cool, Maureen Down simply eviscerates President Obama for his cluelessness in handling the panty bomber fiasco. Here’s how it starts:

Our president came down from the mountaintop.

He had applied the freshness of his independent thought to the critical matters at hand. He had convened his seminar, reviewed the reviews, analyzed the intelligence every which way, thought anew about everything, and lo and behold, he finally emerged to tell us some stuff we already knew.

We are under attack. There is evil in the world. Yemen is a dangerous place that breeds people who want to kill us... (snip) We still can’t connect the dots, even when the dots are flying at us like 3-D asteroids. The sun rises in the east. Two plus two equals four.

Is this an epiphany on the order of St. Paul on the road to Damascus?.... Or could it be the she started following the candidacy of Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts’ special election? Perhaps she caught a glimpse of his photo in the centerfold of Cosmo magazine.

Maureen has Hussein “coming down from the Mountain top” and “applying a freshness of INDEPENDENT thought.” No one that stupid could EVER become a conservative.

“Unlike the Republicans, who have yet to take responsibility for a single disastrous thing they did, President Obama said “ultimately the buck stops with me.””

Taht is SOO straw man argument. Bush said the same thing “ultimately the buck stops with me”

The rule is when it is a hot babe (redundant) to post a pic. I wanted to show who she is, as compared to who she was. And for the laughs. Yours was the first. Cheers

She probably just realized she can go out of business or she can cater to a customer base that is actually growing.

That picture reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where the girl Jerry is dating has bad lighting on her and looks horrid.

It means that neither Clinton or Obama are far enough left for her...which tells you all you need to know about MoDo...

"Is Maureen Dowd turning conservative?"

Yes! Quickly, grab Hillary as the Republican candidate for president! ...and Hu Jintao as the candidate for vice president! Then run a bandwagon campaign for "women!"

No-vote!

If you recall she mocked Obamao’s big years way back when.

She seems to have never been really impressed.

Just who do you mean “We’’ In ‘’we can’t connect the dots’’, b!tch? I wouldn’t welcome this vituperative, bitter has-been harridan of a ‘’journalist’’ into the conservative tent if she crawled over a mile of broken glass on her hands and knees. This shrew practically performed journalistic fellatio on Obama for the last two years. Screw her.

MoDo is going through “The Change.” She’s having a conservative hot-flash.

"Maureen Down simply eviscerates President Obama for his cluelessness in handling the panty bomber fiasco."

"Is Maureen Dowd turning conservative?"

Mo Dowd might be a bitchy middle-aged, soon to be old, hag, but her attack cannot hurt our cause -- to reveal that Obama is a p-ssy, pansy, spineless liberal with weaker executive experience than Jimmy Carter, who previously held the title for least effect President in recent history,

Also, I've been expecting her to turn on Obama for a long time. And no, not just because MoDowd's going through menopause and is feeling b-tchy.

During the early part of the campaign, she wrote a column (clearly without substance) where she mentioned Obama's ear's -- how large they are, and how they stick out like Dumbo's. Obama saw her soon thereafter and asked her not to do that again -- because he is "sensitive" about his ears. Mo Dowd's reply was interesting -- she said he needed to be "toughened up" and also implied that she thought if he wasn't ready for that level of teasing and provocative commentary, was he really ready for national leadership?

I've never forgotten that interchange. I expect Mo Dowd has never forgotten it, also.

THAT's why I think she was hard on him. He had his first test of leadership as commander of the free world and he acted like a wuss and wimp.

Owning a Pikachu causes you to give up your right to call anyone gay. Sorry, but you need to know.

Also, have you seen Brown’s wife?

Palin and Dowd have both been brutal on him.

Hillary too during the campaign.

Women like to beat him up.

How comforting.

"bears repeating 'he acted like a wuss and wimp.' "

Add to that pansy, p-ssy, sissy, and spineless.

My middle-of-road brother-in-law, who lambasted me for not supporting "our nation's President" last summer, didn't disagree with me when I referred to Obama with those words over Christmas. The nation is coming to the realization that his election was a mistake.

A MoDo thread that went 13 posts until the first CZJ pic? FReepers are way off their game this morning. I blame global warming for this travesty.
