Skip to comments.White House rips Forbes article
Posted on 09/16/2010 11:13:52 AM PDT by DFG
Dinesh D'Souza has drawn a torrent of criticism with a Forbes cover story that accuses President Obama of adopting "the cause of anti-colonialism" from his Kenyan father.
But while most detractors focus on the author--and Newt Gingrich, who embraced the critique--the White House is aiming its ammunition at the business magazine.
"It's a stunning thing, to see a publication you would see in a dentist's office, so lacking in truth and fact," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says in an interview. "I think it represents a new low."

Funny, again they react to a negative article.
Lacking in truth and fact? Every point made in the article was lifted verbatium from Obama's "autobiography".
Careful, they'll call you a bigot against people of thin skin. ;-)
Its probably true and they are flustered..
If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen -- please!
D’Souza’s article used the Prez’s own non-sensical actions to demonstrate what possible lunacy was used to get to those decisions.(I especially love the one about Churchill’s bust) No one with a working brain could fail to see that he scored MANY direct hits.
Unless you’re Biden or Gibbsy. Dumba$$ alerts!!
Is that true?
Obama subscribes to Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior
Just as his father subscribed to: Kill Whitey first then decide what should be done with the rest.
Now, Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior makes Obama a Mau Mau! Pure Racism based on color of ones skin not character!!!!!!
This from people who are the very definition of low.
He certainly just compared Obama's actions with his statements from his "autobiography" and also cited quotes from his father's speeches.
Uh oh. The re-education list got a little longer.
Obama is a post-American president. That’s why the rest of the globe celebrated his victory - it was a symbol of American decline.
Obama had brought his Third World mentality to the governing of the U.S. The recent threat against health insurers who pass increased costs on to customers due to Obamacare is just one example. Third World dictator tactics.
Obama does not see America as exceptional in human history. Rather he sees the prosperity of the country as ill-gotten gain that has to be redistributed to the world to assure our collective salvation.
His perspective on America is one of an alien. Our nation is an experiment for socialist theories.
Funny how Liberals scurry when the light hits them.
Every point made in the article was lifted verbatium from Obama’s “autobiography”.
Is that true?
Yes. Down to his channeling his drunk-driver-killer father’s spirit through the “red African dirt.”
Goebbels, er, Gibbs wants “truth and fact”
sure, and he seems never to have noticed that his boss wrote a memoir in a young radical’s quest for “Dreams From My Father”
“”It’s a stunning thing, to see a publication you would see in a dentist’s office, so lacking in truth and fact,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says in an interview.”
He must be talking about Vanity Fair.
So, nationalize Forbes Magazine and have Dinesh D’Souza hung with piano wire. You know you WANT to, Bobby Gibbs, you Obama-worshipping thug.
(Only Bobby is too big of a junior high school wuss to pull it off.)
>> He must be talking about Vanity Fair.
He (Obama) introduces himself as a messiah, spends an inordinate amount of time golfing and vacationing, kills the economy, sides with out enemies, destroys the oil industry, burdens our children with an oppressive debt laden future, opens the borders, fans the flames of racism, refuses to release any personal records that tell us who he is, seems obsessed with reaching out to the muslim world...
He does all this and more...and then wonders why we seek knowledge of the one thing that explains it all.
Must be the article hit real close to the mark.
The flack is always heaviest when you’re flying over the target.
......”It’s a stunning thing, to see a publication you would see in a dentist’s office, so lacking in truth and fact,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says in an interview. “.....
“Dentist’s office” my foot!!!! Forbes is also widely used as a source of facts and ideas by large numbers of business and professional people!
Forbes is a lot more reliable than the likes of “Baghdad Bob” and his smarmy muslim communist boss!!!!
Pro 8:7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
Ouch. I guess that article must have hurt the Zero quite a lot.
That's what happens when you visit a dentist's office, Robbie. Just take your punishment and move on. Other patients are waiting for their turns.
When someone else writes your autobiography sometimes it's hard to remember what you said in it.
It's too bad it didn't come out in '08. Obama is now answering to info he should have been answering to during the campaign.
The next Party Night at the White House will be a Pity Party.
WHERE does she get these clothes? </retorical question>
Living rent-free in Obama’s and Gibb’s heads.
The truth HURTS, FIBBY!!
Gibbs says the Forbes attack comes at a time when there is "no limit to innuendo" against the president, including baseless charges that he is a Muslim and was not born in the United States. Forbes, he says, "left the facts on the cutting-room floor."
Well, Bobby, all you need to do is prove it. Give us the real birth certificate and open all of the Illegal's and Moochelle's records, including Illinois bar records.
By the way, why was Moochelle squeezed out of the Illinois bar like the putrescent contents of a ripe pustule.
In the back of mamma Robinson's closet.
Every time they do this, they give the story life and legs.
“Lacking in truth and fact? Every point made in the article was lifted verbatium from Obama’s “autobiography”. “
So what? It is not only possible to accept the “autobiography” as entirely true while excoriating Businesseek for telling lies, it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY for the inevitable victory of oligarchical collectivism. Just review the tenets of doublethink.
IBD published a very similar editorial in ‘08 but nobody paid attention.
Hooboy. Somebody must have explained some of the big words to Gibbsie. Watching him in a press conference on a topic like this is like watching a 4-year-old try to bench press 300 lbs.
I LOVE D’Souza! He just lets fly, generally with unassailable logic based on undeniable fact.
Please, please continue your attacks, Herr Gibbs.
It only brings the article to the attention of those who may not have heard of it yet, and wonder what all the fuss is about.
“Liberals sure are thin skinned.”
It’s actually very easy to push their buttons, but then the commies and the state run media goes into their politics of personal destruction mode.
Well, Bobby, all you need to do is prove it.
I would pay good money and parking to see Gibbs and D’Souza in a debate. If there was a good cabernet to go along with it.
I am trying to decide whether your vivid writing gets an A+ or and F-
The truth hurts.....
It did!....It’s a great article!
The Obama mentality and philosophy that was truthfully exposed in the article is not limited to Barack Obama.
It is reflected in the main stream media, the American academy and currently being indoctrinated into our public school system.
Conservatives really need to get that this neo-Marxist, anti-capitalist, America hating philosophy is the basis of all liberal intellectual thought.
If Barack Obama disappeared from the face of the planet tomorrow, every White liberal in America would carry on the cause, preach it in every public school and university in America.
Liberals don’t believe in the cultural, legal, social legitimacy of the United States.
This is why they support the illegals and their criminality, why they support the redistribution of wealth, why they support affirmative action and racial quotas, why they support a defeatist foreign policy and a supplication to our enemies and think every ill in the world is a direct result of US imperialism and our military.
