Skip to comments.Dreaming of a Superhero - Even Maureen Dowd has turned against Obama
Posted on 06/02/2012 10:07:51 PM PDT by Beave Meister
ON Friday night, the nations capital was under a tornado watch. And that was the best thing that happened to the White House all week.
As the president was being slapped by Mitt Romney for being too weak on national security, he was being rapped by a Times editorial for being too aggressive on national security.
A Times article by Jo Becker and Scott Shane revealed that the liberal law professor who campaigned against torture and the Iraq war now personally makes the final decisions on the kill list, targets for drone strikes. A unilateral campaign of death is untenable, the editorial asserted.
On Thursday, Bill Clinton once more telegraphed that he considers Obama a lightweight who should not have bested his wife. Bluntly contradicting the Obama campaign theme that Romney is a heartless corporate raider, Clinton told CNN that the Republicans record at Bain was sterling.

Who’s she going to vote for in 2012?
She can keep her idiot column.
Man...I thought she died some time ago.
A Dowd excerpt is plenty enough for me.
The Democrats have the most amazing party discipline. That so many are now turning against Obama can only be described as racism.
(LOL - How do they like that one!)
What a scathing piece. In the NYT none the less. Conclusion is we have an underdeveloped adult in the White House on some sort of vision quest and he has failed.
Rats leaving a sinking ship?
I believe they think Romney will win and are on the lamb to get on his good side.
The claim that Clintoon made last week really got me thinking-WTF are they doing?
They’d sooner play with a liberal in the White House than a full blown loony idiotic Commie that will end up in a mental institution.
The Media hasn’t quite gotten around to the realization that the guy supported is a real life Chauncey Gardner...
You tell that asshole Raphael....
They just can’t discard their lies, can they? He was never a professor of anything!
ok if chelsea was really hillary’s kid, she would go against her parents wishes, (since the witch did this to her republican parents) and back obama.
And these people quoted in the article as well as Ms. Dowd don’t seem to have any problem with electing someone who—in their own words—sees himself as Superman.
Oh man, forgot all about that. Thank Goodness For Rules !
Wow. Maureen or Catherine. What a dilemma that must have been for Michael. (Not.)
Another inference would be Warren Harding: tall, dark and handsome, he seemed “presidential”, but turned out to be clueless, and a complete embarrassment to the party fathers who hand-selected him.
Nah, I would have remembered three straight days of CZJ pictures.
I love these Maureen Dowd threads.. for the pictures.
The disaffected lib punditry can speak freely about Mr. Hopey Dopey now that the GOP-e has cooperated and given them a “safe” RINO alternative. Democrats have already won the election.
Reichstag fire coming up.
Secret Service had better be on their toes - the ones who are left, anyway...
Will the swastika symbol be replaced by one that looks more like a windmill?
According to Dowd, Obama’s greatest problem is that he doesn’t communicate well and delegates too much. He’s done some great stuff, but he lost control of the narrative.
Sorry, Dowd, you still don’t get it. Go watch some more “Fatal Attraction” and dream of being Glenn Close.
Thank you, thank you.
Michael, you lucky ba$ta@@d!
And how old would that photograph be?
Do you dare post a recent one?
Both he & his wife are RAT bastard liberals... I can't stand any of them! And the last picture I recall seeing of Michael Douglas, he looks like death warmed over. Typical aging process for a libturd.
I think the Dems will dump Obama—how is the only question. They get him off the ticket or face defeat in November—a defeat that will hurt the party for decades. I say—go ahead and go down in socialist flames! couldn’t happen to a better group—But they are not that stupid—they are looking at extinction as a group and ideal and will fight with every claw to keep power. I put nothing past them! What will they do?
A) leak Information that Obama was born in another nation—and let the Republicans oust him.
B) leak a “scandal” about Obama and let GOP do the dirty work.
C) leak a “scandal” about some of his top people.
D) Have him resign for “reasons of health”.
E) If he will not step down — a threat to his family—
F) Obama could have an “Accident” or get sick. Bad heart?
G) Lots is going to happen before the convention—watch Hillary! If she resigns her Sec. of State Job over a “dispute” with her boss—Watch Out! Remember her man runs the CIA. What can Obama Do?
1) Start a war—Iran? Syria? North Korea?
2) Get rid of Romney with scandal or assassination.
3) Cancel the election due to National security?
4) Start race riots and burn the inner cities.
5) Blame everything on others—Tea Party, Bush, GOP, Catholic Church, Mormons, Greeks, Japanese earthquakes etc... (he’s done that but it will not fly this time).
This is from earlier this year.
General David Petraeus is Hillary’s man? Or did you mean Leon Panetta, who has since moved on to running the Defense Department?
I meant Paneta That that would be a great place to have someone in a Coup!
Well, who is that homely red-haired dame right alongside the column in “The New York Times” article that is posted?
That would be the author of the editorial, the old broad Michael Douglas dumped in favor of his present wife, Catherine Zeta Jones.
Someone posts a Maureen Dowd column and you, and others like you, shout “Rules”! and post a photo of not the author of the editorial and the subject of the post, but someone else (this Ms. Jones you reference).
Please explain how that makes sense.
Is Bill pulling the strings from behind the curtain? Does he see 0 as vulnerable in an election and is behind the scenes setting 0 for an upset with Hillary being the next candidate?
Can anyone help me, I don't understand how Mareen is getting away with this in Liberal Circles.
It's an old FReeper tradition.
Actor Michael Douglas dumped her for Catherine Zeta Jones.
You had to be there.....:- )
Hey, I was just walking by here and saw the usual photos of someone not involved with the story that was posted.
I have no idea as to why Ms. Dowd is turning on her hero. Those people make no sense, anyway.
OK, so it’s a FR tradition. Fine.
Maybe it is the handwriting on the wall. Maybe the his primaries have her spooked. The thing here is that all the rest of the media have not turned on her like they did Cory Booker.
Cory was worried about loosing Venture Capitol for his city and they rained a ton of brick on him till he backed down. I'm not seeing this and wondering why they are not throwing Maureen under the bus.
Maybe it is the handwriting on the wall or something I can't see. But I know when the behavior changes like this - something is up.
