Skip to comments.Just heard Ken Rudin on NPR say Obama is a poor leader, poor negotiator, and poor fighter (vanity)

I was scanning radio channels in the car shortly ago and the tuner stopped at NPR (Neal Conan's Talk of the Nation) just as Ken Rudin said that the Democrats are in an uproar about Obama. He said that the general consensus is that "Obama is a poor leader, a poor negotiator (he gives concedes before the negotiations even start) and a poor fighter."
It was surreal.
Rudin asked Conan if he remembered the point in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy exposes the Wizard as a fake and says "you're a very bad man" and the Wizard responds by saying "no, I'm just a very bad Wizard." Rudin stunned me by then saying "well that will be Obama's epitaph."
Made my day!
Why he’s a racist.
He’s obviously a racist.
To place his name anywhere near the words “leader”, “negotiator” or “fighter” is laughable.
Remember Glenn Beck predicted this.....
Pray for the Safety of the Secret Service.
That’s not the news.
The news is how long it took the Libtards to wake up.
There’s a news story.
lol...of course he is. And now so is NPR.
Just a few months ago he was the most brilliant and capable man to ever take the oath of office.
Obviously, the Left just doesn’t want a Black man to be President.
This “Just a few months ago he was the most brilliant and capable man to ever take the oath of office.” made me puke then and it still makes me gag
but of course you are correct.
I didn’t think I’d see or hear any 0dumbo supporters admit their mistake. A mistake that cost us.
Hopefully the damage is minimal.
Who is this Rudin fellow? Don’t believe I’ve heard of him.
now they’ll lose their public funding. LOL
I just know the name. He’s a hardcore lib IIRC.
>>a poor leader, a poor negotiator (he gives concedes before the negotiations even start) and a poor fighter.”
Now we know what would have happened had Michael Dukakis won in 1988
Political Editor, Washington Desk
September 9, 2008
Ken Rudin is the political editor for NPR, where he directs campaign coverage for the network. Ken’s focus is on all aspects of politics, from the presidential contest the primaries, national conventions, debates and general election to the races for the House, Senate and governor, as well. He has analyzed every congressional race in the nation since 1984.
For nearly two decades, Ken has been a familiar presence on many national TV news programs. He writes the “Political Junkie” blog on NPR.org an interactive feature that takes questions from readers on campaign history, strategy and trivia. The blog, which earlier ran for three years as a column on the Washington Post Web site, has spawned a “Political Junkie” on-air segment every Wednesday on NPR’s Talk of the Nation. Ken was also a key player on the NPR team that won the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton award for excellence in broadcast journalism in 2002.
Ken also produced the popular ScuttleButton contest, a weekly campaign button puzzle, for the Washington Post, and wrote the “Political Graffiti” column for The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper.
From 1983 through 1991, Ken was at ABC News, where he served as deputy political director and later as the off-air reporter on Capitol Hill covering the House. He first joined NPR in 1991, as its first political editor. Ken returned to NPR in 1998, after a three-year absence during which he was the managing editor of the Hotline, a daily political newsletter.
A political junkie for many decades, Ken has one of the most extensive collections of campaign buttons in the country a collection that now surpasses 70,000 items. Ken is a graduate of Pace University in New York.
NPR-types probably read HuffPo, DU, DailyKos, etc. Given the brutal thrashing Obama’s been taking on the comments-sections of such sites, it’s not surprising NPR would echo the sentiments.
Keep NPR’s Federal Funding!!! *snicker* /sarc
Just think -- if Rudin goes completely around the bend and attacks Obama in some mis-guided assassination attempt, then Rudin will be forever branded as a "rightwing religious extremist".
Sniff. I find it so moving when they begin to eat their own.
IMO, he’s also anti-American and anti-Semitic.
True, BUT even Michael DuKAKA(trans for chit in spanish)wouldn’t bow before every leader the way this little turd does!
You must mean, "That they woke up" at all.
What’s sick is that all this outrage on left is because someone else won’t be paying higher taxes. These people are screwed up.
Remember that a fundamental characteristic of the leftist is the ability to say one thing today and the exact opposite tomorrow depending on whatever suits their need at the time. With a few more moves to the left he will be their favorite son again.
Obama is also a poor excuse for a human being.
My dream is that Obama runs for reelection in 2012 but is defeated in the rat primary by some non-black candidate. I think this could be the event that would cause blacks to walk away from the demoncrap party. It could be the end of the unholy alliance between blacks and the anti-Christian left. The demoncrap party could be reduced to a regional party existing only in bolshevik bastions like Vermont and Hawaii.
The “bad” wizard visual was great.
Exactly my point, (see tagline).
It took these overschooled, undereducated, adult children over two years to realize what the rest of us knew before
the 2008 Presidential election.
All the degrees in the world don’t represent common sense.
As a freeper said a couple of days ago, Obama is bringing this country together, everyone hates him now..left, right and middle
Yep...that was great, wasn't it?
The very fact that the Wizard of Oz image popped into Rudin's mind says (to me at least) that the Dems know unconsciously that Obama is just the man behind a curtain...a "bad wizard"...a fake.
And the fact that Rudin believes the "bad wizard" thing will be Obama epitaph...wow!
Now that's what I call a tagline, Goat Granny.
I would toast to that and take it one further. The more time spent with (most) college professors, the greater the distance between a student and reality.
