Obama's America 2012: If Nixon Only had the Press on His Side
Townhall.com ^ | September 17, 2012 | Shawn Mitchell

Posted on 09/17/2012 3:34:17 AM PDT by Kaslin

Please enjoy the following rants and obeservations from Facebook:

If you care more about getting free nine-buck-a-month birth control than you do about fewer jobs, more unemployed, and double-priced gas over four years ago, you might be an Obama voter (and bad at math.)

Russian reset worked! Muslim outreach worked! The One healed the world! Peace everywhere! Just look at our booming economy! Oceans, ice caps, enemies, humanity, they all swoon to his Hope!

September 11 brought us tightly together because the moment of crisis commands human empathy and response. Liberals and conservatives know how to carry a wounded sister.

The years since--of remembering, processing, and deciding how to respond-- drove us apart because the after-calm falls back on personal world view about human and political nature.

Our national debates and sometime bitterness since that day bear witness to the diversity of human understanding.

Imagine what Nixon could have gotten away with, with the press on his side! You don't have to imagine. Look around at America, 2012.

News item: Administration asks Youtube to remove controversial film on Islam

Mr. President, I'm offended. My "religious feelings" are hurt. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, my faith is violated--I'm violated--by the Broadway production "Book of Mormon." Some Mormon friends and I intend to storm the walls of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and replace the DCPA flag with a BYU Football Banner.

You'll have our back, right? Maybe the FBI could release a statement criticizing those who mock the faith of others--especially for something as tawdry and unimportant as commercial profit!

If we kill the Facility Manager, and maybe a janitor or two, and Mormons start rioting in American cities, will you ask Matt and Trey productions to cancel their outrageous, hate-fest? Sure, some extremists will say that's against the First Amendment, but the Constitution was never meant to protect irresponsible speech! Anyway, you can take care of that with an executive order, can't you?

The Middle East is on fire. Our ambassadors are targeted and unprotected. But it's not the One's fault.

Our economy is on fire. But it's not the One's fault. It's the fault of the guy from four years ago, who only had to weather 9/11, the halt of travel and tourism, the dot.com crash, and Clinton's housing-Fannie/Freddie-orgy.

America, I pray you're not that freaking stupid.

The  headline sings the party tune: "Death toll rises as protests rage over Muhammad-mocking video"

Of course. Outrage over an obscure, weeks-old internet film spontaneously erupted coincidentally on September 11th. Peaceful, heartsick locals were spontaneously carrying rocket propelled grenades and launchers.

Gee. Why does the media want this crisis to look like something other than premeditated attacks on the US and its government? Clash with favored narratives, maybe?

At the same time that hateful enemies plotted bloody murder in desert lands...here at home liars in politics and their lapdogs in media declared that reluctance to outlaw co-pays for contraception was a WAR! War on women!

What an unserious mass of malicious buffoons, and the public that believes them.

The president's actions in the Middle East are worse and less forgivable than Jimmy Carter's because he had Carter's experience to learn from. The Shah was not replaced by liberal democracy, but by the ayatollahs and blood and horror. One can only conclude his position is: "I'm Barack Obama and I approve this trajectory."

Sorry, Bibi, no time. Got a Vegas fundraiser and I'm trying to squeeze in a date on Letterman. But, you do know I value you people. Right? I mean, I can count on you?

Imagine—imagine--what the barking pack of hounds would have done to George Bush if he jetted to Vegas (suffering under flood waters, incidentally) for a glitzy fundraiser while American terror casualties were still warm on foreign soil.

But this guy gets canine loyalty with wet licks from a neutered pack. It's like a conspiracy in plain sight. And when you criticize it, they say: "Prove it, wing nut!"

He limply watched Iran’s mullahs crush west-friendly student protesters. He condemned a brutal ally, pushing Egypt into the grip of more brutal theocrats. He launched illegal war against a spent Libyan dictator, dropping another nation in Sharia’s bucket.

The naively touted "Arab spring" darkened fast, raining threats and death on Americans he failed to protect. His embassy condemned the free speech of private citizens who “hurt religious feelings.”

Thankfully, enough is enough. The somnolent media is finally aroused and angry--at Mitt Romney for criticizing the president’s shameful, disastrous performance.

There are many things I would punch George Bush in the nose for if I could. But I do know he loves America. Yes, there is an implied negative assertion there.

There is soooooo much ammo with which the RNC, Republican Congress Critters and especially, Romney/Ryan to hit Dear Reader and the RAT Party with: Doubling gas prices, high unemployment, foreign policy, the debt, etc.

What are these wuss, girly-guys waiting for to unleash their big guns? November 7th?

Russian reset worked!

The "Russian reset" was/is just a means of helping them equal us militarily. He's already given them what they wanted on missile defense. In his second term (God forbid), he'll do the same on nukes (he'll get rid of ours).

Nixon was dealing with Communist traitors. Obama IS a Communist traitor.

This pic you posted (copied below) says it all in a nutshell. If it weren't for the kiss-ass liberal media the commie bastard would never have been taken seriously as a presidential candidate the first time around. Also the entertainment industry and the leftist dominated school system. Every time some seemingly devastating fact came about him they would sugarcoat it and make it go away.

The America media has no shame. It is 'in the tank' for Islam and al Qaeda.

The commie left has had an "unholy alliance" with radical islam for a long time. As communists, they don't really respect the religion (or any other for that matter). They side with them only because they are (also) out to destroy America. If they ever succeed, they'd then go after each other.

In fairness, R/R have been talking about these things, perhaps not as vociferously as they could. But nothing they can say, or how they say it, will dissuade the multitude who have quaffed the Obama Koolaid. We can only hope they can reach the tiny pool of undecideds.

And nothing they say is making it on any MSM programming unless they can construe it into a gaffe and then it is harped on 24-7.

Yet the evidence as to who and what Obama is overwhelming. The info on my FR Home would probably be enough to scare many if not most dem voters away from him.

Communist goals (which have already been accomplished) from “The Naked Communist”:

#20 - Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

#21 - Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.

Do yourself a favor and google “The Naked Communist”. Note especially WHEN it was written. Pay particular attention to goals 16 through 29. Think back to what went on in our country in the late 60s and early 70s

The seeds were sown then and we’re reaping the harvest now.

Perhaps THIS was the dream of Obama’s father?

Woulda coulda shoulda editorials are a waste of ink and RAM. Truly R/R needs to hit hard and focus not even on foreign policy but rather the economy.

How about showing hard how the unemployment rate is 16.1% and how R/R understand that and feel our pain...

NOW IS THE TIME!!!

Isn't that the truth!

I tuned into the local news this weekend and saw no mention of Romney, and scant mention of the situation in the ME, except for footage of one Obama/Hillary campaign event (the ceremony which employed the earthly remains of the assassinated ambassador and his associates as props).

They unleashed all that had against Santorum and Gingrich. No it’s “Mr. Nice” again. Even the aging Dick Lugar is flirting with the Democrats.

Despite his bad-mouthing the liberal media, ol’ Dick was still trying to get them to see things his way. He never understood why he failed. Update: So then comes Julie to endorse Obama. Has she done so again?

This line seems to apply to our little uninformed Republican primary voters too.

Ultimately, the “Mr. Nice” mantra is a reaction to prevent “charges” of “racism” from the liberal “soccer moms” outside Denver, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Washington, D.C., Jacksonville, etc.
