Skip to comments.Peggy Noonan wrong to call Obama a ‘loser’ or not loved
Posted on 07/31/2011 7:25:40 AM PDT by Zakeet
Yesterday, I pushed back on the bothersome Beltway meme that President Obama is invisible in this epic fight over raising the debt ceiling. Today, I want to dispute Peggy Noonans assertion that nobody loves Obama. Her opinion piece is all the more noteworthy for calling the president a loser. There are many legitimate criticisms you could level against Obama, particularly about his governing style or his personality. But calling him a loser was uncalled for.
The notion that nobody loves Obama is something Noonan says shes never seen in national politics. She goes on to write:
This is amazing because every president has people who love him, who feel deep personal affection or connection, who have a stubborn, even beautiful refusal to let what they know are just criticisms affect their feelings of regard. At the height of Bill Clintons troubles there were always people whod say, Look, I love the guy. Theyd often be smiling a wry smile, a shrugging smile. Nobody smiles when they talk about Mr. Obama. There were people who loved George W. Bush when he was at his most unpopular, and they meant it and would say it. But people aren't that way about Mr. Obama. He has supporters and bundlers and contributors, he has voters, he may win. But his support is grim support.
Noonan said she asked Democrats who supported Obama how they felt about him. She got a lot of comments that backed up her claim.

The Radical Gay left have quietly taken over the media outlets in this country.
If you look at the every single Soros run media outlet you wil see the Gay Left at the forefront .
CNN and MSDNC have two Gay leftists anchors and even Fox has Sheppy ! The Soros funded Media Matters run by
the former mental patient /Gay activist.
Behind the scences the producers and news writers are mostly Gay.
My wife worked at CNN as a consultant in the 90’s and she estimated 40 % of the staff was Gay back then.
The radical lwft wing shift in the Media reported in the recent UCLA study can be directly linked to Gay Left quiet take over of the media outlets.
I can only imagine the Wash Compost news room is more like a Gay bar now !
What does he and mr obama have in common?
It only took her two years longer than the rest of us. Noonan hates Sarah Palin with a passion because Sarah is everything Noonan isn't: young, pretty, smart, an opinion leader who just happens to be marries to a hunk.
It really does come down to that for a lot of people. Everyone hates the pretty girl, being successful makes it even worse. They just cannot free themselves from their hateful feelings and yet no one is willing to even consider voting for someone they hate looking at..it's a human psychological dilemma..it's sad really.
In addition, those women who do look beyond the superficial, all of a sudden, are taking a "I do not want women in office" stance. It's the most bizarre turnaround that I've seen in my lifetime. It's all about the new wave of Republican female office holders and candidates...it's amazing.
They both would turn around if someone yelled, “Hey, Wanker”.
So, the author decided to challenge Noonan’s assertion that nobody loved Obama by checking in with his “ex-Giuseppe” who was and remains in love with Obama.
I need a shower.
Obama’s the biggest loser in presidential history, a total epic fail.
No matter how hard she tries, she will never be able to shake her head-up-the-ass endorsement of Obama in 2008: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122539802263585317.html
Fascists: They all smell alike.
I’m a WSJ subscriber. Her column is the one I don’t read on Saturday.
“When you are down to foreign born, homosexuals who apparently seem to be primarily attracted to blacks and are hostile to straight people to make your point about the popularity of the President, you have truly hit the bottom of the interest group barrel in politics.”
Thanks for boiling all that down! Part of Guiseppi’s post went right past me, I admit. [I was hustling to get ready for church.] You really, really nailed it. The homosexual who wrote this column gave Obama an unintentional kiss of death. I hope more people pick up on it!
Jonny Capehart loves him still.............
Of course, it doesn’t matter to this poofter that Dingy Harry Reid called GWB a loser...and a liar.
One of my favorite sci-fi TV shows was Warehouse 13, till, out of the blue they present a new character, a special agent with the ATF who announces he’s gay...for no reason other than to change the show from sci-fi to homo promo.
