Does that mean we can hope for a Nixon type resignation soon?????
The only people who say that Zerobama is “likeable” are media suck-ups like Bill O’Reilly who hope to score an interview with the Kenyan Fraud.
“because of they’re lack of support for President Obama”
Obama et al have learned well at the foot of the Master. Unfortunately for Obama, the majority of Americans follow a different Master.
Oh, stop it.
Nobody's got the stones to stand up and say the Emperor has no clothes.
I've read a lot about Richard Nixon over the years and his biggest flaw was that he was a very insecure man, and not without good reason because the elite establishment/media hated him to the core. They were bound and determined to destroy him and a bungled burglary at DNC headquarters by low-level operatives back in 1972 provided Nixon's enemies with the goods to take him down. Of course, the subsequent cover-up didn't help Nixon's cause but he was a dead duck either way.
Not excusing anything Nixon did but had the same level of investigative journalism been applied to the Clinton Administration, they would have to build a separate prison just to house all those criminals. And of course, Obama would never have gotten close to the White House had they done their homework on him.
Somewhere there must be a liberal-leaning reporter (I know, redundant), with some stones (I know, bad assumption) who finds himself/herself thinking that Obama has finally overreached with this new “Enemies List.” (Or if not that, perhaps with Fast and Furious, Solyndra, voter ID’s, etc.)
Assuming there is one, I would suggest the following: Document where you stand right now in terms of your ability to gain access to government sources, the respect of your colleagues, and your working relationship with your employer.
Then, go after what’s bothering you with a vengeance. After all, the material is certainly there on virtually any subject you would choose. Do some actual reporting, and let your readers or listeners who never hear anything negative about this administration from your employer’s magazine, newspaper, or TV station, hear the unvarnished truth. Granted, you’ll only be able to do this for a few days before you’ll be muzzled, but that’s the point.
Then, over then next few weeks and months, again carefully document your treatment by those same government sources, your co-workers, and your employer (or ex-co-workers and ex-employer).
Then write a book about the entire process. Title is something like: “What Happens to a Liberal Reporter When He/She Goes Off the Reservation Isn’t Pretty.” You’ll sell a few million copies to conservatives and will have a standing job offer at Fox News thereafter.
Do it for career advancement, if nothing else. (It would be better if you did it so you could once again look yourself in the mirror in the morning with an ounce of pride, but if advancement is your inducement, go for it.) Besides, that way, you won’t go down with the rest of the Rats in that sinking ship they’re riding in under the command of Captain Obama.
Estimated chance of any such reporter surfacing: Zero. They all want to be Woodward or Bernstein and take down someone on the Right instead. Meanwhile they ignore the biggest potential stories of their lifetimes. But hey, their leader is “cool” and they’re cool with that. Pathetic.
The oft-stated line goes on to plant the thought that "he is a nice guy who just doesn't understand" what he is doing because "he is in over his head." That is almost as big a lie as those the so-called "progressives" put out.
The American people, if they are to be informed enough to preserve their Constitution's supremacy as their great and ultimate shield against coercive government power, must understand that the forces represented by this Administration know full well what they, and he, are "doing."
The opposition candidate in November 2012 must be strong enough, courageous enough, and so passionate about liberty for future generations that he will declare boldly the truth about the so-called "progressive" movement Obama leads, its roots, and its intentions.
Malkin's audience can amplify the message and hold the feet of the Republican leadership and its candidate to the fire on this point. It is that important to the future of America!
Does anyone believe that the current President came to such a determined commitment just before, or during, the 2008 campaign?
The American people need to hear from an informed Republican candidate about the real nature of the battle of ideas in which citizens must be engaged, and the design and serious intent of the November 2012 opponents.
Long ago, a Freeper posted the Agenda of a 2002 meeting of so-called "intellectuals" in Chicago.
Note the participants in that conference are the major "players" in the headlines emanating from White House policy makers in 2012.
Romney's cavalier description of the President as "a nice guy" who "just doesn't understand" how the "private sector works" is either shallow and uninformed, misleading, or something else. The "battle of ideas" for the future direction of the Republic is too important to be engaged in on such a level.
American voters, like the citizens of 1776 and 1787 can understand and connect dots--if they are adequately articulated to them now, allowing them time to think about it.
Picture this: a group of people who describe themselves as being "intellectuals," declaring of the conference: "It will be both a celebration of ideas and a rigorous examination of the roles and responsibilities that intellectuals play in society."
Nothing is so pitiful and shameful that, in a country whose document of liberty was authored by a true intellectual, and was said by him to be a mere representation of "the American mind" of 1776--in such a country, in 2002, after over 200 years of basking in the "light of liberty" first shed by that document--we now have a group of people sitting around in Chicago and plotting how their so-called "intellectual" efforts will play a role "in society." Consequences of their "role" are being played out now in the "society."
As Weaver said, "Ideas have consequences."
The ideas of 1776 resulted in more liberty and prosperity for more people over a longer period of time than ever had been experienced in the history of civilization!
The so-called "intellectuals" who occupy positions of excessive coercive power in Washington today may, if unstopped, precipitate another age of darkness in the world, where the ideas of liberty have been censored, and "other ideas" from other sources have been exalted.
Dr. Russell Kirk years ago warned of what T. S. Eliot had labeled a "new provincialism--the provinciality of time, imprisoning people in their own little present moments." Picture the participants of that Chicago conference, and we have a visual of Kirk's words.
The enduring and essential ideas of Creator-endowed individual liberty must be defended against the "redistributionist" ideas which have led to tyranny in every society where they have been implemented.
Where is the Jeffersonian intellect, or group of intellectuals, of 2012 who are up to the task?--whose study of the founding ideas can equip them to help American youth discover and preserve the ideas of liberty for their posterity? If Romney can't do it alone, then he'd better surround himself with surrogates who can!
Our first black Nixon.
Oh my God, these Townhall drones and their stream-of-unconciousness rants.
Hey McCullough, this reads like you wanted to get back to whatever was on cable ... but just so you know, it's friggin APRIL. The personal sh!t waits for Labor Day. Otherwise Mittens would spend all his MSM facetime discussing personalities like the MSM want him to...
