Skip to comments.Dorothy Rabinowitz: The Unreality of the Past Four Years
Posted on 10/22/2012 6:15:40 AM PDT by Snuph
In the 1967 film "A Guide for the Married Man," a husband, played by a peerless Walter Matthau, is given lessons in ways to cheat on his wife safely. The most essential rule: "Deny! Deny! Deny!"no matter what. In an instructive scene, he's shown a wife undone by shock, and screaming, with reason: She has just walked in on her husband making love to a glamorous stranger.
"What are you doing," she wails, "who is that woman?"
"What woman, where?" the husband serenely counters, as he and the tart in question get out of bed and calmly dress.
So the scene proceeds, with the distraught wife pointing to the woman she clearly sees before her, while her husband, unruffled, continues to look blankly at her, asking, "What woman?" Confused by her spouse's unblinking assurance, she gives up. Two minutes later she's asking him what he'd like for dinner.
For much of the past four years, the Obama administration's propensity for asserting views of reality wildly at odds with those evident to most rational citizens has looked increasingly like a page from that film script.

What Al Quaida? Where?
Gosh, it's like the Obama administration is channeling my husband, or vice-versa.
No wonder the polls show women voters' dumping the Democrats.
Lol. Love the comparison
Obviously, BO was following Billy Jeff Clinton’s mockery of the highest office in the land. “Deny, deny, deny” was the motto of his tenure in the White House as well.
It only works because the Democrat media enables such disgraceful behavior for a Democrat president, and will look under every rock to see if they can’t blame their sins on the hapless Republican bystanders.
Comparing the Obama presidency to that scene from ‘A Guide for the Married Man’ was perfect.
Another way of saying it would be, the Obama Presidency who do you believe? Me or your lying eyes?
It has been unreal. Hopefully we can inject a little reality November 6th!
The Clintons were the masters of “I don’t recall”
“So who you gonna believe, me or your lyin’ eyes?”
Attributed to Groucho Marx, who was probably one of the most insightful masters of insult produced in the past century.
The MSM is the spouse............

Actually I believe it’s “Deny, Obfuscate, Make counter
Think of Issa’s Behghazi investigation, first they
deny, then they obfuscate and confuse, then they
make the accusation that he is indangering Libyan
operatives by releasing the names of personel
THEY gave him.
They are pros at this.
I'd say he's neck and neck with Winston Churchill for the title. From my perspective, WC wins it on points for mastering the understatement, coinciding with his sense of timing.
So why did you diss Sarah Palin, Dorothy? Oh, she was so low-class! She didn’t lie to the American people or live in an alternate universe like Obama...but she was so...tacky.
The AUDACITY Presidency.
