You have to grudgingly admire the New York Times. It’s dogged determination to recast reality into it’s own image is nothing less than Quixotic and as we head into the closing days of this election cycle, the Don Quixote of the lame stream media will get shriller and shriller, it’s offerings sillier and sillier and it’s leanings will go which ever the way the prevailing winds are blowing.
The quote of today from it’s most resent vitriol laced offering and maybe for the election season in my humble opinion is
The tactic of linking potential Republican rivals to such statements was already in evidence last week. After Ms. O’Donnell’s victory, a party spokesman told reporters, “The fact that Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin would put their name behind a candidate that believes women who serve our country ‘cripple the readiness of our defense’ make them unfit to be commander-in-chief.”
Really? They are really going to go there. When we have the most incompetent, most hostile, the most anti-military regime in place ever to mar the annals of this country. In the run up before his election or dare I say ascension to the throne Senator Obama stated ”
“I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems. I will institute an independent Defense Priorities Board to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary defense spending … I will set a goal for a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal: I will not develop nuclear weapons.”
After he was crowned as President he and his wife, the woman who said at the Democratic convention
“For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”
chose to ignore a 50 year tradition and bypass the Medal of Honor Inaugural Ball,
Instead of attending this ball honoring our nation’s heroes, Obama was busy making stops at 10 other official balls. Obama and his wife’s first stop was at the Neighborhood Ball. From there they went to the Home State Ball for Illinois and Hawaii, the Commander-in-Chief Ball, the Youth Inaugural Ball, and the Home State Ball for Delaware and Pennsylvania. They finished off the night with brief appearances at the Mid-Atlantic, Western, Midwest, Eastern, and Southern regional Balls.
Of course the military ball wasn’t jam packed with the his highness’ cronies, the beautiful rich donors, oh sorry I’m mean celebrities.
Celebrities were a plenty at the balls, with Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Mary. J. Blige, Faith Hill, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, will.i.am, Sting, Mariah Carey, and Leonardo DiCaprio in attendance at the Neighborhood Ball. In addition, the other nine balls also featured a star-studded lineup including Kanye West and Kid Rock at the Youth Ball, Marc Anthony at the Western Ball, and Cheryl Crow at the Western Ball.
And so who exactly is not FIT to be Commander in Chief. This is the same man who as Candidate Obama said,
“As President, I will close Guantanamo, reject the Military Commissions Act and adhere to the Geneva Conventions.”
But you say, he has a right to change his mind. He has since becoming president become educated. I would counter that since becoming president he does not want to be impeached or have the country go up in flames. As the leader of the party in power his taste for “change and revolution” has waned considerably. Funny how once the Alinsky followers get into powerful positions they have the same lack of principles as any other group of humans. Of course it is easier and faster for them to turn because since they have no scruples it is easier for them to jettison the ones they’ve pretended to have.
So please, NYT spare us the mendacity you are so famous for. Forgive us for ignoring your lame, partisan rhetoric, and liberal whining. We’ve long since absolved you of any trace of objectivity and patriotism. We see you for what you really are, the mouth piece for the fringe left wing of the Democratic party, anti-American, anti-family, amoral and anti-reality.
