Skip to comments.The Dark Art of 'BenSmithing' Helped Cover Up Obama's 'New Party' Membership

In 2008, National Review's Stanley Kurtz got BenSmithed. He didn't just get BenSmithed, though, he got BenSmithed by the BenSmithiest BenSmither in the history of BenSmithing -- Ben Smith himself.
Oh, I remember it well. We were thisclose to election day, the wind was squarely at Barack Obama's back, the media was refusing to vet the history and background of anyone in Obama's past (besides, most every investigative reporter in the free world was in a place called Wasilla), and then along came the news that while in Chicago, as a grown man in his 30s, Barack Obama had joined something called The New Party -- a radical, socialist organization whose political endorsement he had sought.
The story threatened to become a late-October surprise, the kind of story that would not only once again prove Obama's disturbingly radical not-so-distant past, but also tie together just who this man really was (and is). It would also damage Obama's credibility, and prove that he had been covering up his radical associations, and worse, lying about it.
The corrupt media, naturally, was hoping to run out the clock and was therefore willfully ignoring the story. Online, however, things were heating up. Right-of-center blogs were pushing the story as much as they could and like the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in 2004, it threatened to spill over into the mainstream media and damage--gasp--a Democrat.
Well, this is why The Media Devil invented Ben Smith and his dark art of BenSmithing.

I wonder if people like Ben Smith ever consider the hideousness of their lies and how really evil they are
Or do they just not have that moral thing inside them
You mean Obama’s a member of some party besides the DEMOCRAT PARTY?
In other words, he's just like all members of the MSM.
He had to be discredited.
Axelrod calls Ben Smith. It's a very cordial conversation.
The rest is history.
In the past yes. It’s only the demise of this New Party, in connection with the defeat of its legal attempt to get its members co-recognized in the Democrat Party (”fusion”), that makes it not possible for Barack Obama to not be a member of it any more.
that makes it not possible => that makes it possible
Real reporters do that??? Who knew!!
I bet Barry goes all the way down?
Boy ain't that the truth. And the cover up continues as they pursue a girl in grade school that Romney might have pulled her hair.
Not to mention the deceased former classmate who’s hair Romney may or may not have cut.
Yup. Very little recent proof.
