It began, like the Obama presidency itself, with the loftiest of hopes and the greatest of expectations.

Soon to hear.....like jesus he walks amongst us in the flesh
Especially from prime Obama a..-kisser Milbank.
What does she mean, “narrowly favored to win.” I keep hearing that, and it doesn’t seem to fly in the face of reality. If he wins, the election was rigged.
I was open mouthed with shock when I read NBC’s ‘fact check’ comments which showed Obama and Dems in an unfavorable light!
When even Gay Milbank says this stuff........
“It began, like the Obama presidency itself, with the loftiest of hopes and the greatest of expectations.”
Ok it took me about 30 seconds to become angry. The MSM built the “loftiest of hopes” brick by brick. They refused to ask the man questions and glossed/lied wherever they needed to get him elected. Now they step back and “observe” the dashed hopes of the people as if they had nothing to do with it. Am I to understand that the MSM intends to select someone else for us this time!!!?
Dana Milbank is a guy.
“...loftiest of hopes and the greatest of expectations...
Anyone, ANYONE, who had done even the most basic of research on that hate-America, narcissist, Marxist, redistributionist, non-American, muzzie, racist, psychopath, Israel-hating, lowlife, dirtbag, piece-of-filth, would have known some of the truth about him and his felonious Chicago mob of criminal, corrupt lib-dem scum, before Nov 2008’s GE. The mass hysteria was unlike anything I’ve ever seen, except at a 50s circus sideshow tent promising “eternal life in a bottle”, for $25.
“They refused to ask the man questions and glossed/lied wherever they needed to get him elected.”
That’s absolutely right; the perceived shift in coverage as of late leads me to believe that their internal polls indicate an election day disaster for Obama (that apparently can’t be averted with their normal deceptions), and they are trying to claw back some of the credibility they’ve lost over the last 20 years by playing “impartial” now.
Informed Americans have spent that time adjusting to different news sources to compensate; I don’t see the “mainstream media” ever going back to the position of influence it once held. The days of Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, and Soledad O’Brien (to name some of the most egregious offenders of late) being anything other than the voice of the left are over.
Dana’s kneepads finally wore through to the gravel of reality and he had to stand up.
——The demigod turned out to be entirely human, and his results were disappointing.——
Yeah Dana ...normally when the person you put on a pedestal turned out to be a fraud....you are going to be letdown...
So right, FPC. The eye-popping parallels are right in front of anyone who even bothered to look for ‘em.
“The worst was the mass hysteria aspect.”
I agree. No American political convention should ever look like a Hitler rally or a faith-healing revival. Americans are never to worship government, but rather, we are to be wary of it. It is always a threat to our God-given freedom, and that’s why God was unwelcome in Charlotte where government was worshiped.
However, when generations of our citizenry have no clue as to the Founders’ attitude toward the government they were establishing, but have been raised on the pap of celebrity-worship, we now have to be ashamed of gatherings such as the Democrat circus in Charlotte.
-——Danas kneepads finally wore through to the gravel of reality and he had to stand up.-——
No...not happening.....he just needed to give his messiah a little bitch slap...so he can say he is not in the tank completely...
Expect several screeching hit pieces on Romney / Ryan in the future...
Libtards are so predictable ....
Using the term loosely.
Dana is a he not a she. Milbank means Obama is narrowly favored to win in the select liberal bubble of which Milbank is a member. The same people who couldn’t understand why McGovern lost to Nixon in ‘72 because everybody they knew voted for McGovern.
Et tu, Dana?
I wish Jesus would show up and show him who’s really in charge...; )
He’s on the way!
Key verse: Isaiah 14:12, but some also relevant context is provided:
"9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine aheart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the enorth:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;"
And no, I am NOT saying that this scripture was spoken/written about Obama... just commenting on the apparent similarities in terms of the inevitable future fall - at some point - of those who exalt themselves with incredible arrogance and hubris, to say the least...
Only Democrats (liberals) would take a person like Obama at his word.
oblunder a demigod? They are giving Thor and his kind a very bad name.
I heard there were 5,000 delegates and 15,000 media. That's 20,000 seats right there. In a stadium that holds 74, 000 tops, they didn't have seats for ALL the delegates? That means that over 54,000 seats must have went to special friends and lobbyists, oh yeah, and members of Obama's commie party headquarters.
Man. If I were promised a seat at the big event, and had tickets, and Obama decided to screw me over I would be royally pi$$ed.
I don't know how many saw the article posted on this topic yesterday, but it can be read here:Link here to mobile version). The piece is very long, but very good. Great weekend reading, albeit somewhat disheartening.
As the influence of Christian faith grows weaker, the opening for secular saviors grows. Now, we've always had our share charlatans and spritual snake-oil salesmen (e.g., Jim Jones, Heaven's Gate, etc), but with Obama, we see their emergence in the political forum. What's worse, Obama has a large constituency. This is what happened in Europe with Musselini, Hitler, and Lenin. Sadly, the USA is on the same trajectory. Secularization--or loss of faith in God if called by it's true name--makes whole peoples susceptible to demagogues and charlatans in the political realm. Our constitution was expressly set up to combat this, but we are now part of the overall decline of the West. Our old ways no longer have the same hold over people's minds that they did 20-30 years ago. Can we pull out of this spiritual decline and avoid the tragic fates of France, Germany, and Fascist Italy? We are now fighting the same forces that wreaked havoc on those countries. We used to fight these forces abroad; now we must fight them at home, and that is a very different kind of battle. The enemy isn't a Nazi, a fascist or a commie "over there," but a an increasing portion of our own citizenry.
Is it me or has the media shifted a bit since they early interviews with VP-nominated Ryan? I think the media realizes that it is goin to be Romney/Ryan and they are scared $hitless that they will be made to look foolish when conducting and interview with Ryan and/or in press conferences. He's a detailed oriented policy wonk and the media doesn't read anything past the talking points. Hence, the media folks don't know the actual details of Obama's policies and Ryan's plans.
Unfortunately, Obama is getting a sizable bump from his speech (and that of Moochell and Clinton). Just 3 days ago Romney was up 4 in Rasmussen’s tracking poll, this morning Obama is up 2. Gallup is showing a very large bounce with Hussein’s approval now at 52%. Obama’s speech might have sucked to thinking people, but the masses are sheeple who are huge suckers for appeals to emotion. The majority in this country are still captivated by Obama, they WANT to like him. It is very difficult to defeat someone that the public WANTS to like - he just get the benefit of the doubt almost no matter what he does wrong.
I don’t know the reason, but the fact is that VPs are rarely factors in a decision as big as ending the Obama-worship. His selection may have played a role in helping them determine that the upper midwest would go to Romney/Ryan (thus putting re-election out of reach for Obama), but I don’t really know.
The media probably would have preferred Obama pick another VP just to get some kind of excitement on a tried-and-failed, boring administration. I can’t believe the number of people (not just “regular Joes”, but also people in the media) that have admitted that they don’t listen to Obama’s speeches anymore. While he may have advanced their agenda, he is in fact boring and repetitive and hollow; he can only be as exciting as the teleprompter will allow (really)
The candidate, on a stage set resembling a Greek temple, spoke about remaking the nation and the world.
Definition of DEMAGOGUE

“The Enemy Within” has been inside the gates for the past 50yrs.
Excellent article; thanks.
My pleasure, glad you enjoyed the article.
Yes, the enemy has been inside the gates for decades; but until recently (that is, 20-30 years ago), they felt they had to keep a low profile. We can thank men such as J Edgar Hoover, Whittaker Chambers, Nixon, Sen MacCarthy et al., for holding the revolutionaries at bay for much of the 20th century. We were spared the scourge of Revolution that ravaged Italy, Russia, Germany and Spain.
The revolutionaries have now reached a critical mass and they are out in the open. The neo-gnostic underground now publically bellows against God, Jerusalem, and the natural order at national political conventions. Although they aren’t a majority yet, give it 25 years. Sandra Fluke may be President!
Oh well, it seems Providence has ordained that every country must face this trial by fire. Let us pray that we acquit ourselves well. And we have cause for hope: there is still an America out there, albeit a bit worse for wear these days.
Somerwhere in America, a certain *Tree* needs serious *Refreshing*. It will take a terrible CWII to restore our Constitutional Republic. Our Faith in God, Family & Country will see us through it.
