Skip to comments.The End of the Obama Illusion
Posted on 05/15/2013 5:55:27 AM PDT by Texas Fossil
President Obama is shattering the illusions of his supporters, and eyes are opening, even among his former media allies. As if waking from a slumber, a newly aggressive White House press corps yesterday raked Jay Carney over the coals over various lies and evasions, prompting Megyn Kelley of Fox News to quip, "What's happened? Who are these reporters who showed up here?"
They are disillusioned and angry liberals who are starting to grasp that they have been lied to, who realize that a skeptical stance is necessary when examining a narrative offered by team Obama on Benghazi or the IRS scandal.

The perspective of the writer is spot on. The press is beginning to awake to what they have supported and the illusion is gone. The mask is coming off and the face is ugly.
he has the entire media and school system to buffer his image for years longer, deep into his third term.
For using the IRS to fix the election I call on Barack Obama to resign now!
As this is supposed to be government by the people .I call on the American people to do a citizens arrest on this criminal called Barack Obama
Once again proving that marxists from Chicago good leaders in a free society DO NOT make...
Too late now.......
.......and thanks, wimpy RINOS.
Some wit posted that after that brutal presser—Jay Carney was curled up in a fetal position somewhere-—breathing through a paper bag.
He couldn’t have cheated his way to a SECOND term if his treasons were known at the time they happened!
It MIGHT have made a difference, but then again, might not have.
What the conservatives need to do is block every agenda item he has with their majority in the house,
keep the corruption in the forefront,
and actually have people state that the only reason he cannot be impeached because of his father’s skin color.
I am deeply saddened by all this. Why, you ask?
Simple...90% of the FReepers, whose “names” I’m familiar with knew BEFORE Obama went to the White House, that this was the future under this ‘community organizer’.
I find it can be personally devastating to be proven 100% correct when expecting the very WORST.
I give the MEDIA no credit at all for stumbling on the TRUTH. They took their stand for pure ideological reasons, not expending an ounce of thinking energy on the subject. They are enablers of the very worst kind, and are as culpable in creating this situation as the most corrupt of the Democrats.
Great article, thanks!
You assume he actually has character enough to do so. Like Clinton, even if impeached by the House, the Senate will not convict and he will npto step down.
Democrats have to character, standards or morals.
One data point does not make a trend.
I’m still waiting for more longer term evidence that the press corpse has awakened from their coma and or fawning adulation of ostoner.
This is nothing more than a lovers quarrel between the MSM and O. We’ll be back to writing “barf alerts” next week.
If Carney resigns it might be a sign. I bet he’s starting to consider it.
There will be no turd term.
Yes, his being is incompatible with any form of freedom.
This sounds like the original series Star Trek epi “And the Children Shall Lead”. Bunch of kids had an imaginary friend Gorgan who was leading them down the path to galloping ruin. He had control over them and had them do things they really didn’t want to do. Long story short, Kirk found out who Gorgan REALLY was and forced the kids to see him in his true appearance. Gorgan started growing warts, issued empty threats, made false promises, all before being done away with. When the kids (libs in today’s equivalant) saw the real Gorgan, they all cried and felt bad about what they’ve done.
We have that sequel playing out before our eyes today with Obama (Gorgan) finally being exposed. Some of his brain-dead followers are now beginning to wake up from his trance and have their eyes opened to reality. The thing is, Obama has done all of this to himself. A massive self-inflicted wound that may, hopefully, never heal.
I will consider our nation fortunate if it simply has to pay Obummer a pension for the rest of his miserable existence.
Lifson, from the article writes this;
“Some on the right are already talking impeachment, which is a big mistake.”
But he does not explain why - he just states it categorically.
Yes, I read that. The problem with early invoking the “I” word is you must have the goods to deliver. Otherwise there can be a sympathy shift from threat and a vilification of the threatener.
“A massive self-inflicted wound”
Yes, and the nation has been given a massive wound that I hope and pray she will survive.
MLK Jr. Isn't The Only One With A Dream
Though I’ve long suspected that many highly placed Democrat Ops have been looking at this guy for awhile, shaking their heads and thinking “he’s a total f**k-up, what are we gonna do?” Could never say it above a whisper though.
