Same Old Story

The liberal media continues to reach new lows on an almost daily basis as of late.

These so-called journalists are on a mission to make history, to be there when the first candidate of color wins the presidential election. They will sacrifice everything; their values, journalistic integrity and factual reporting all in order to see their "Messiah" (term credited to Rush of course) take the throne in January.

John McCain is in a dead heat with the freshman Senator from Illinois but CNN has already called the election for Obama. Do not allow these news networks with obvious political agendas proclaim this contest over before every last vote is tallied.

Obama is in Europe currently on a trip that he says is in no way "campaign-related". He claims it is his intent to get to know its leaders better because he will be dealing with them "over the next eight to ten years".

I guess he can say just about anything now and people will cling to every word, regardless of substance.

With this quote; this ill-thought, absurd and pompous remark, this is a man asserting that he has won this election already as well as his reelection campaign in 2012 and somehow has added on two additional years.

El Rushbo made this commentary the other day and I think it is worthy of paraphrasing here:

It is quite a tribute to America that a child born of two races, two religions, growing up in meager surroundings and being raised by his grandmother in Hawaii, can grow up to be even more pretentious than Senator John Kerry.

Another Missed Opportunity

If Barack Obama has one consistent position (in fact, that may be all he has) it is expecting more from the African-American community as a whole. He believes the youth must get out of gangs and back into schools and stresses the importance of growing up around a solid family.

But Jesse Jackson takes this kind of optimistic credence as an insult to African-Americans, "talking down to them". I guess he is pleased with the status quo and the growing number of black Americans inhabiting our prison system.

When Jackson uttered his crude and asinine remark earlier this week on an open microphone, it presented Senator Obama with a golden opportunity which he then squandered.

Jackson proved once again that he is out of touch with this country and the population he claims to represent, and it left Obama with a huge opening from which to emerge as this generation's new voice on civil rights and equality.

If Obama wanted to solidify his absurd claim to be a man who transcends both race and party lines he would have taken this bait and McCain would privately accept an impending defeat come November.

But he did not take this course of action.

Instead he sent a low-level staffer out in public to accept the apology of Jackson and be done with the story. These are the actions of a stereotypical Beltway liberal who will avoid the sensitive issues so nobody gets upset with him.

As a former Clinton staffer recently said, "Reagan won because he pulled the electorate to the right."

Obama is firmly wedged in the center and will continue to flip-flop and double speak in order to remain there come election day.
