The liberal media
loved Obama to death

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/10/2012 5:36:54 AM

It was in Denver one week ago that the long-running romance between Barack Obama and the national press -- aka the "Slobbering Love Affair," as Bernard Goldberg put it -- hit the wall. The motel bill, unpaid these many long months and ages, at long last came due. It had been the real thing, not a commonplace fling with your generic Democrat, but the love of a lifetime, the genuine article, the sum of all dreams: He was not just a Democrat, he was also a liberal. He was not just a liberal, he also biracial,

I wish there was a way to make sure the journ-O-listers will have to find the unemployment line. I always wonder why people who have been so blessed can hate this country so much. Wouldn't it just be easier to move and leave the rest of us alone?

1st biggest debate lose: Obama. 2nd biggest debate loser: the liberal media who have obviously been lying about both Obama and Romney. 3rd biggest debate loser: Democrat campaign ads.

People trust their twitter feeds more than the media. Think about that for a moment.

Great article but even Naomi can't seem to shake the media fairy tale of this guy's ability to write and talk. Absent Bill Ayers' books and TOTUS, Barky is about as creative and pleasing to the ear as gansta rap-which is actually more in line with his persona.

Not necessarily, #10. If Obama's performance gets bad enough, the whole MSM will have to back away from him to preserve the lie that liberalism equals truth. Liberalism must be preserved at all costs, even abandonment of the Won.

But reality is-it is nothing but rock, ice

May I be allowed to whisper a word of dissent? In spite of the abundant good sense on display in this brief essay, Ms. Emery repeats the mantra that Obama is a great writer ("...he was gifted at writing..."). Has she not encountered the unanswered and unanswerable work of literary sleuth Jack Cashill?

We don't know how Obama performed in academia; for some reason those records are hidden: even results from standardized tests like the SAT and LSAT. You can be damn sure that if he had earned a Phi Beta Kappa key with a GPA of 3.95, or graduated in the top portion of his classes at Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard Law, we'd have been constantly reminded of it. If he had written anything intellectually penetrating and original for the Harvard Law Review, it would have been nailed to our brows, probably by David Brooks.

The totality of his reputation for brilliance rests on his presumed authorship of Dreams from My Father, which reads as if it were written by a stylistically graceful professional writer like Bill Ayers, because it was. Obama friend and benefactor Ayers himself has said as much. Pontificators from one side of the the political spectrum to the other have swallowed this brilliance canard, falling all over themselves to lionize this massively overhyped, stuttering communicator, although we have neither heard nor read anything remotely memorable or graceful from the Obama vomitorium/walnut since the publication of this alleged autobiographical memoir, certainly not since the 2007-08 national campaign. Remember that some dramatic pauses happen because the purveyor of the balloon juice doesn't know what the hell to say next. This anti-American fraud must be unmasked for his slavish supporters to see.

Dammit, it's the STATIST media, not the liberal media, liberal means freedom. The word "liberal" in both headlines is used as a cover up word for big government media, collectivist lap dog media, ANTI liberal media. The so called MSM media is the big promoter of big brother communist socialist style of taking away the rights of each and every individual citizens Kill babies, vote without ID, confiscate guns, force medicine on all citizens with IRS armed guards, ruin doctors and nurses lives, keep businesses out of business, forcing more unemployment, putting more people on governmant dole, divisively knocking the successes of individuals, promoting union graft (by their own unionized newscaster comrades), tax, tax, tax, spend, spend spend, into trillions of oblivion, make no budget, be totally irresponsivle and all of it, endlessly printing fake money, with the backing and indoctrination of all MSM.
Good article, their golden boy "dissolving"
right in front of their eyes like drizzling excrement. How sad for them to have the adored one betray THEM. All of you, MUST STOP CALLING THESE DESTROYERS LIBERAL.
Overcome your fears, wake UP, call them nazis, commies, reds, traitors, bums, any word that makes you nervous to actually say. Go ahead, try it in the privacy of your own home. Get used to it. It's the semantic way to win, and it won't cost a dime.

It's not only that they loved him, BO is their creation. He was eyed since his 2004 convention speech and everything about him was constructed. His background and racial makeup were certainly great raw materials to begin with but everything else was manufactured and as we are clearly seeming now, fake.

He is not particularly intelligent. He is not a good speaker unless everything is very carefully crafted for him. His understanding of issues is superficial at best. His personality is poorly suited to be a reconciler and uniter because he is too self centered. His idea of unity is to do things his way.

It's not only that his record is one of failure, he doesn't have any of the basic requirements to be able to do any better. We have the media to thank for this caricature of a president. They created him and loved the product of their efforts. Pygmalion revisited, but BO didn't work out nearly as well for the media.

And after, hopefully, Obozo is defeated next month, what you will hear from the drive-by's is that Obozo just didn't implement the socialist policies correctly. I mean, he made some minor mistakes that caused the downfall of what all of them were trying to do. "For the people", of course.

I get nervous when pundits talk about a future event as if it already happened. Ø is still President. He is still running huge leads in vast portions of our nation- very important voter sections. He is still a media darling. He still has very dirty, dangerous friends in high places. This is not over - not by a long shot. The day after is a vision I dream about. I will stay up all night election night. I will celebrate, the day after Romney wins--- if he does. I will bury my flag, my weapons and my American soul if he does not.

obama is the time bomb that has gone off, and his destructive agenda is weakening America daily. The cabal that everyone calls the 'liberal' media is actively working to help him implement his tyranny.
Tyranny is evil; he and they are equals in evil doing any and everything they can to implement his 'fundamental transformation' of America to whatever his ideology envisions.
Justice is long overdue and it will not be complete without an exhaustive scouring and expulsion of all the America-hating media sycophants!

Bingo! He knew they always had his back.

Personally I had this happen in my family. My MIL loved my BIL to death. She had every excuse in the book for his criminal actions. She was right there to protect him even at the expense of other family members. After he had ruined his life, sadly he died at age 50 of alcoholism. She didn't do the right thing by protecting him. Instead of helping him through fixing his life, she simply denied that he had ever done anything wrong. Sorry for all the personal information, but this really made sense to me.

MH370: New last words from cockpit:

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- They were words heard around the world as investigators searched for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane. Weeks ago, Malaysian authorities said the last message from the airplane cockpit was, "All right, good night." The sign-off to air traffic controllers, which investigators said was spoken by the plane´s copilot, was among the few concrete details officials released in a mystery that´s baffled investigators since the Boeing 777 disappeared with 239 people aboard on March 8. There´s only one problem. It turns out, it wasn´t true. On Monday, Malaysia´s Transport Ministry said the final voice transmission from the

Israeli Minister: Pollard
Opposes Release for Talks

JERUSALEM -- A hard-line Israeli Cabinet minister says convicted spy Jonathan Pollard opposes being freed from a U.S. jail in exchange for Palestinians prisoners. Uri Ariel says people close to Pollard have told him that he opposes such a "shameful deal." Ariel, from the hard-line Jewish Home party, spoke to Army Radio on Tuesday. He says he, too, is against the release of "murderers" for Pollard. Talk of the possibility of Pollard´s early release has arisen as an incentive in the troubled Mideast peace negotiations. The idea is that if he is freed, Israel would make concessions and release more Palestinian prisoners.

SALT LAKE CITY— Utah earned an additional congressional seat following the 2010 census, and Republican state lawmakers in charge of the redistricting process used that opportunity to slice up the district of seven-term Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Matheson into four parts. Matheson ran in the 4th District in 2012 and won, but just barely. He held off Republican Mia Love by fewer than 800 votes in the most expensive congressional race in state history. Now Matheson isn´t seeking re-election and the odds are a Republican will win the seat. Matheson has dismissed speculation that his decision to retire was spurred by fear he

Leland Yee’s campaign debt at root of

In more than a decade of campaigns for the California Legislature, San Francisco mayor and secretary of state, state Sen. Leland Yee raised in excess of $5 million. Yet it was a campaign debt only a fraction of that amount that federal officials allege pulled the veteran politician into a sprawling sting operation. The 137-page FBI affidavit against Yee and more than 20 other defendants says the San Francisco Democrat’s focus on retiring a $70,000 campaign debt from his unsuccessful 2011 mayor’s race and raising money for his 2014 candidacy for secretary of state led him to accept bribes in return

The FBI isn’t breaking up with the SPLC —

Last week, the FBI received a lot of attention and praise from conservative sources for finally eliminating the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from its website’s list of “hate crimes” resources. However, while a headline at Breitbart says the FBI “dumps [SPLC] as hate crimes resource,” and an article at The Daily Caller said the FBI was “breaking ties” with the SPLC, a public statement from the FBI and the agency’s own website indicate the removal may mean just that — removal from the site, not a diminishing of the relationship between the two organizations.

No accident in history of flying has ever spooked as many people. It’s a crisis for the airline industry that wants to make Asia a larger market than North America and Europe combined. Fear of flying is irrational but often incurable. Once the doors close on the cabin there is no escape. Your life is in the hands of the pilots together with the most complex machine ever devised for travel. You have no control. The requirement for you to submit to confinement is reinforced by accepting the first bag of peanuts. Irrational? Just look at the numbers. Last year 1.3 million

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Political hunt for sex abusers puts

The push from the commander in chief, generals and politicians to punish sexual offenders has become so relentless that it endangers the fairness of the military justice system, defense lawyers say. They worry that a cacophony of public statements vouching for accusers and demanding justice can sway military judges and jurors who are trained to take lawful orders. A military judge already has ruled that “unlawful command influence” infected the infamous case of an Army general charged with a string of sex offenses. “I think it’s troublesome when you have the president and the secretary of defense making certain pronouncements about what’s to

Liberals keep dismissing challenges to ObamaCare, political and legal, so it´s no surprise they mostly ignored last week´s oral argument at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that could send another case to the Supreme Court. Coming in the week the White House wheeled out its 38th rewrite of the law, Halbig v. Sebelius is even more important for the contours of executive power and the rule of law.

Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded “Big One” from the more famous San Andreas Fault. The Puente Hills thrust fault, which brought Friday night’s magnitude-5.1 quake centered in La Habra and well over 100 aftershocks by Sunday, stretches from northern Orange County under downtown Los Angeles into Hollywood — a heavily populated swath of the Los Angeles area. A magnitude-7.5 earthquake along that fault could prove more catastrophic than one along the San Andreas, which runs along the outskirts of

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
