National Disunity, Innuendo and Scandal

Good Morning Bloggers - The far right has grown even more vocal than usual over the past two months. I realize they're sore losers, but they seem to be accusing Obama and the Democrats of whatever pops into their minds. They're even more illogical and tiresome than usual.

My theory is they smell blood. What blood? A weakness in voter logic. The Clinton and McCain campaign's limited success at harming Obama by linking him to perceived radicals has obviously tweaked their interest. Guilt by association resonates with voters! They see it as a new way to harm Democrats.

In the same way Karl Rove and George Bush drove their fanatics over the past eight years using wedge issues like gay rights and stem cell research, younger Republican strategists are using innuendo to drive scandals using that great American icon - the ROLODEX.

They're using random relationships and speculation as chum to brew new scandals daily. Facts are irrelevant. Since the election they have "chummed-up" the "OBAMA RECESSION," "ELECTION FRAUD" in Minnesota, and numerous other "OBAMA SCANDALS" involving people like Blagojevich and Richardson. Again, facts be damned. It's insanity, but then again it is the far right.

Oh well, I thought they might learn from their defeat, but if the past two months are any indication of their intentions, it appears there will be no coming together as a nation. They will probably continue to use the strategy, and the media will continue to feed from the Republican trough, for as long as it gets them attention.

It's incredible! The election is over, they were beaten very badly, but they still keep fighting. They're like junkyard dogs! Not the funny kind, but the sad kind.

They have decided not to cooperate. Instead, they are determined to paint Obama and his team as corrupt. The corporate media is cooperating by giving their wild speculation air time. The heresay and speculation has grown beyond FOX. The far right is determined to deny the Democrats any respite. They are determined to play dirty to the end.

Republicans get away with war crimes while Democrats are criticized because they associate with one another. The media ignores real scandal while responding to the smallest perception of scandal encouraged by Republicans who seek to prey on weak-minded voters. Unless things improve, the world today seems ass-backward, illogical and dark.

No matter how low they go, it doesn't change the fact that the country voted for Barack Obama to fix the problems caused by the Republicans. That is undeniable. The people want CHANGE! The rantings and the lies of the far right will not change that fact. However, it DISTRACTS from the mission. It HARMS Obama's ability to get things done. It can slow or prevent progress.

I continue to support Obama's desire to unite us, but I bet against it. They are a dishonest and dishonorable opposition. They want us to fail. They are biding their time, hoping to once again lie their way back into power. I grow tired of their deceit, and will not fall for it again.

I assume you are talking about the three that is going on now, the Blago, Richardson, and Burris scandals that are plaguing the Obama Regime. Explain to me how is it the Republicans encouraged Blago and Richardson to get involved in these pay for play schemes, and Reid refusing to seat a qualified Senator.

You make a lot of accusations but never back it up with supporting documentation, isn’t it a great country we live in where we can shoot our trap off?….I will be waiting to hear your explanation as how the Republicans have influenced the media on reporting on these three morons.

Maybe we will see two of them lead off in handcuffs after everything is said and done, especially the kiss ass Richardson who threw the Clintons under the bus to secure a position with the Obama Regime and then lie to the transition team.

Anon - The point of the article is that there IS NO LINK to Obama yet you Republicans keep talking like there is a link. I didn't say anything about those three specific examples. That wasn't my point. Blago and Richardson are under investigation in the same way that DOZENS IF NOT HUNDREDS of Republicans are, and they have NOTHING TO DO WITH OBAMA! I'm not making accusations, I'm simply pointing out how you guys jump to ridiculous conclusions. I already explained how Republicans are influencing the media. Read it again.

What da fuck you mean boy they have nothing to do with Obama, Blago is part of the same cesspool that Obama came from called the Chicago political machine.

Richardson was his pick for Commerce Secretary, Burris again the Chicago political machine and the only way you can separate the three is with a crowbar.

I know the point of your article you hate people like Hannity, Limbaugh, and Glen Beck, why not e-mail these people and call them liars...now we know you will not do that because they will chew you up and spit you out like a little maggot.

by Michael Boh said...

With due respect Ghostrider, Obama is not part of any political machine, despite what you right-wingers say. Regarding Hannity and his ilk, I am calling them liars HERE, and would be happy to call them liars to their faces. Trust me, they would not chew me up or spit me out. They would do what they always do when confronted with angry citizens who consider them SCUM - RUN AND HIDE.

Maggot if he is not part of the Chicago cesspool then what da fuck is he a part of? and I suppose you call responsible political commentary comes from the likes of Keith Olberman, Randi Rhodes and Al Frankin and the hate they spew.

You talk about Republicans trying to sway the public how soon we forget the likes of Dan Rather who lost his job over a bull-shit story and the most recent lawsuit against the times for a printed lie trying to sway the most recent election.

Last but not least it is very well documented that Obama is part of the Chicago political machine.

Orson Scott Card, Democrat and newspaper columnist, wrote an opinion piece on the sorry state of journalism and bias.

An open letter to the local daily paper — almost every local daily paper in America:

I remember reading All the President’s Men and thinking: That’s journalism. You do what it takes to get the truth and you lay it before the public, because the public has a right to know.

This housing crisis didn’t come out of nowhere. It was not a vague emanation of the evil Bush administration.

Card details the coverage of the financial crisis and commits heresy, by Democrat journalist standards, by stating the reality of the issue…

These are facts. This financial crisis was completely preventable. The party that blocked any attempt to prevent it was … the Democratic Party. The party that tried to prevent it was … the Republican Party.

He also touches on the slanted coverage of the candidates…

If you had any personal honor, each reporter and editor would be insisting on telling the truth — even if it hurts the election chances of your favorite candidate.

Because that’s what honorable people do. Honest people tell the truth even when they don’t like the probable consequences. That’s what honesty means . That’s how trust is earned.

Barack Obama is just another politician, and not a very wise one. He has revealed his ignorance and naivete time after time — and you have swept it under the rug, treated it as nothing.

Meanwhile, you have participated in the borking of Sarah Palin, reporting savage attacks on her for the pregnancy of her unmarried daughter — while you ignored the story of John Edwards’s own adultery for many months.

So I ask you now: Do you have any standards at all? Do you even know what honesty means?

by Michael Boh said...

Anon - That last piece is too disjointed and nonsensical to respond to, but I will say that you seem to have your facts wrong about the crisis, you are wrong claiming that I am dishonest, and you seem to be a victim of right wing propaganda. That's about it. Now I need to move on to my next "angry" post. MB

Just as I expected, what other response would a hard left winger give other than dismiss the article as nothing more than right wing propaganda even though it was written by a Liberal.

by Michael Boh said...

I'm sorry, but quoting one Democratic journalist's OPINION that the crisis was caused by Democrats is ridiculous compared to the MOUNTAIN of evidence I've presented on this blog. Why don't you go back and read a few postings. Responding to that one comment and that one - even if you think he's more "honorable" than me - journalist is a waste of my time. You're "evidence" is weak to say the least. MB

Those who applaud Barack Obama’s “spread the wealth” communist blatherings ignore the fact that pity pot communists in Washington, D.C., caused the economic meltdown which has terrorized America and the entire world for several weeks.

Indeed, communists in Democrat clothing demanded that mortgage loans be approved and executed for people not qualified for home ownership. Spreading the wealth meant a concentrated effort by government to provide housing for minorities and low income people by waiving prudent underwriting rules, regardless of risk.

As it turns out, this latest example of “progressive” insanity cost American taxpayers more than a trillion dollars.

With progressive politicians in charge, prudent underwriting was replaced by idiotic business practices based on the following:

Don’t have money for a down payment? Of course you don’t, because under the Republicans all the wrong people have the money!

However, fret not, your Democrat Nanny will make an exception so that your family can get into that home without making a down payment, or by making a very small one.

Don’t have good credit? Again, good credit is vastly overrated, especially when it comes to minorities and low-income folks. Good grief, if government would only force employers to pay more money, everyone could pay their bills on time.

Don’t have stable employment? So what else is new? That is a given for minorities in racist America, especially in the disastrous Bush economy! We understand!

Don’t have enough income to qualify for a loan? Again, racism takes a nasty toll. Once again, it is your Democrat Nanny who will force those evil lenders (mostly white Republicans!) to “expand” debt-to-income ratios, AND make your application a “stated income loan” so that all families can partake of the American Dream.

You say you are still worried about making those sky-high monthly payments?

Relax, Democrat Nanny will get you an “option arm” program that allows YOU to decide how much you pay each month! Five years from now, this 1,200 square foot, two bedrooms, one bath home will be worth a million dollars, and you will be filthy rich!

However, when you become rich please know that there is no good reason for becoming a Republican! Remember your roots and always vote Democratic!

In America illegally? Fret not, senoir and senoritta, your Democrat Nanny will force lenders to treat you as good, or even better than, American citizens! Democrats will even demand that all of your documents be in Spanish, just in case one of you happens to be literate!

Mind you, helping minorities and low income people is a good thing, if it works. However, when progressive thinking forces borrowers into bankruptcy and or foreclosure, no one benefits.

Granting loans to illegal aliens is sheer stupidity in all cases because such people are inherently unstable AND because funds used to help illegals should be spent on American citizens.

Spreading the wealth may sound good, but the idea of government seizing the wealth of one family and giving it to another family is immoral and un-American.

What would Jesus do? I know he would NOT lead the poor into bankruptcy or foreclosure.

Shame on Barack Obama and Democrats for their blatant promotion of communism in the name of helping minorities and the poor.

I did as you suggested and the only thing I could find is how much you hate Bush, nothing more, nothing less Maggot.

Anon - NOBODY wants a communist or nanny state. That is taking our desire for change too far. There's no need to go to extremes in our debates. No leading Democrat, especially Obama, has argued for such changes. That includes me as well. MB
