Have they no shame?
NY Post ^ | October 11, 2010 | Rich Lowry

Posted on 10/12/2010 3:09:21 AM PDT by Scanian

When Barack Obama went to the 2004 Democratic Convention, where he made a splash as a mere US Senate candidate, he told a reporter: "I'm LeBron, baby. I can play at this level."

If he has a modicum of self-awareness, when he reflects on his closing argument during this campaign he'll tell himself: "I'm McCarthy, baby. I can play in the gutter."

President Obama has discovered a nefarious plot by foreigners to influence the US election, and included it in his stump speech. He wants voters to focus on the truly important question before this historic midterm: Whether the Chamber of Commerce has properly segregated $100,000 in dues from foreign-member affiliates away from its $50 million advertising campaign.

There's no evidence that the Chamber hasn't acted in compliance with the law, but let's not let such trifling details get in the way of inflammatory innuendo. On "Face the Nation" over the weekend, Bob Schieffer asked Obama adviser David Axelrod if he had any evidence that the foreign money the Chamber gets is anything other than "peanuts"

"I'm LeBron, baby. I can play at this level."

And like LeBron, he can "play at this level", but he can't get the job done. And like LeBron, it's all "me first" and excuses.

Hmmmmm......LeBron slithered out of Cleveland before he got the job done. Maybe Obama could make like LeBron and leave, only before his contract is up.

Democrats and libs like to smear McCarthy, who revealed the communist influence in our country that prophetically would eventually pave the way for the election of Obama and socialism! The only one playing in the gutter is POTUS.

If you haven't noticed, the Democrats love the word "foreign," almost as much as "corporate" and "Wall Street."

I think this is projection on the part of the Dems. Once Republicans are in a position to investigate, America is going to find out just how "foreign" this Obama guy really is.

...the same foreigners who loved and adored him, and thought that he was the Messiah? When your false facade begins to fall apart...quickly blame someone else....Soros has said he won't stand in the way of an avalanche. Hey Dumbo,it's time to use your own money

This "discovery" coming from a man who campaigned in other countries when he was running for US president.

Shame? From a democrat? Not even if every pig in the universe put on lipstick and sprouted wings. You have to have a sense of morality, a sense of right and wrong before you can feel shame, and democrats/liberals have intentionally divested themselves of those crucial aspects of humanity.

All three being code words for "the Jews."

They are ecstatic about this "blindsided attack" on the Teabaggers (sic) and Repubs, over at Democratic Underground. Something like 139 juvenile posts one after another, many of them using the *f* word and telling the Dems to go for even "more blood". Totally ecstatic. How misplaced. How grasping for straws.

One thing they are ALL, in their posts one after the other devoid of is, nobody added or gave ANY EVIDENCE to the charges. Absolutely no academic or journalistic aspect to the threads, just hearsay. Who breaks it to them that their chief top dog, Obongo, is now backing down on it as we speak!!??

You can tell they are near psycho in reading the General Election numbers, near breakdown perhaps, and this gives them some kind of breath of last hope. It is almost pathetic. This pipe dream of theirs will evaporate in the next 42 hours....they are pinning so much hope on it, but there is no "there" "there."

Sad. Patethic. Embarrasing for them, almost.

After this? Suicide watch.

Foreign money is a good thing to investigate. It’s like trying to selectively unravel the onion.
Postus’ campaign had millions come into it just under the bar and therefor uninvestigated.
The sums ended with strange $ and cents because they were exchange rates. I heard Rush drop this and it makes sense.

However, nothing that comes out will have effect on O or supporters of this. They will push the “D” .

I have to admit that I was slow on that. I believe that you have cracked the code. (I still haven’t had my first cup of coffee.)

Evidence?? Dems don't need no stinkin’ evidence! Don't forget......when it comes to smearing Pubbies it's the seriousness of the charge, not the preponderance of the evidence (even when there is NONE!).

The only thing wrong with equating his current tactics with McCarthy is that McCarthy was right.

Is Matt Lowry another CINO from the National Review bunch of statist repubs? He’s an ignorant fool regarding McCarthy and the lying Communist’ revision of this history? Someone needs to smack this idiot Lowry with a VENONA FILE! Ann Coulter is just the person to lay the smackdown on little pants Lowry.
Wake up these tools!

I do cringe when conservatives use McCarthy and Nixon as bogeymen the same way libs do. It just reinforces the notion that the press gets to propagandize our leaders long after they're dead.

I have met and spoken with people who laugh at the notion that W and Rove had a friendly book reading competition during their time in office. They have been convinced W is borderline illiterate.

There is going to be alot of diaper-wetting the night of Nov 2nd. I cannot wait to tune into CNN for the first time in years. DU ought to be a fun place to hang out too. And the moaning and flagellating over at Daily Kos should be a gas too. To finally repudiate them and all that they stand for, will truly be the highlight of the 21st American century.

That puerile element is precisely the target of the “foreign money” stories and the other smears which we’ve been hearing about lately.

I’m sure they’re sufficiently revved up to vote by now, so the Obamanoids would be well-advised to move on to something else. Such as making sure as much voter fraud as possible is being organized in key states and districts.

The dummies that the smears are actually aimed at couldn’t care less about something as trivial as “evidence.”

With them, everything is based on fear, envy, suspicion, and every other negative emotion known to man. Think “magnitude of the charges” from the Clarence Thomas hearing.

As I recall, LeBron completely dogged it during the last playoffs.

“Conservatives” who talk that way identify themselves as being either members of, or aspiring to, the Ruling Class.
