My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.
|As usual, irony is a literary device lost on liberals.|
First, there's this charming piece of high rhetoric from the Speaker of the House.
"You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, A TOTAL FAILURE, losing all credibility with the American people . . ."
For contrast, consider this description of an advertisement running in Washington state:
Obama. This one, produced by the Washington State Republican Party, begins with Mrs. Obama's famous "For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country" remark. From there, it cuts to a series of Washingtonians saying why they are proud of the United States. "Because we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave," says one woman. "Because in our country people can freely express themselves however they wish," says another. "Because this country has given more blood for freedom than any other country in the world," says a third. After that, the ad cuts to those same people reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. After a quote from Ronald Reagan, the ad ends on a slide that says, "Help us welcome Michelle Obama to Washington. Forward this video to your friends and family!"
So, which one of these two events do you suppose draw this response?
These shameless attacks . . . have no place in our politics. . . . After eight years of the most divisive, fear-driven politics this country has ever seen, I agree . . . that it's time to turn the page and bring Americans together.
Of course, you know which one it is--this is the Democrats' response to the non-attack on Michelle Obama.
Not just irony lost on libs, though; they are rather effectively mounting the most extensive topic-limiting campaign in American history, with willing participation from their friends in the media. Pretty soon, any effort to even show what Obama has actually said will be called an "attack" and scrubbed from the discourse.
It's really rather amazing that Obama doesn't have a 15-point lead at this point.
