Remember when I posted the poll by John Ziegler?
Here’s the follow up that the left was crying for. The results really shouldn’t surprise you.
In other words, the assholes that voted for Comrade Obama, are morons.
Based on Obama’s associations and influences, which we can document over most of his life and career, one must realistically conclude that he is a revolutionary Marxist. One of his more troubling associates, as we at AIM have written about for many months, is Anthony Lake, a Democratic Party foreign policy specialist who made headlines by doubting whether Alger Hiss, the United Nations founder and a U.S. State Department official, was really guilty of espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union. Lake is not a figure from Obama’s distant past; rather, he has been one of Obama’s closest foreign policy advisers for the last two years. In the 1980s, he had controversial ties to the pro-Marxist think tank known as the Institute for Policy Studies, which was dedicated to the establishment of revolutionary Marxist and anti-American regimes in Central and Latin America and elsewhere.
This is disgusting, but not unexpected:
On the night before Thanksgiving, just an hour after Rosie O’Donnell had publicly belly-flopped with a horrible attempt at an old-time variety show on NBC, Barbara Walters made a fool of herself interviewing Barack and Michelle Obama. The toughest questions dealt with whether there was enough “change” in his cabinet picks, and whether he was “waffling” on tax hikes for the rich — questions his (and ABC’s) liberal base would enjoy.
Let’s go back eight years. On the Friday before the Inauguration, Walters interviewed then-President-elect George Bush and his wife Laura. But it was only one part of a routine “20/20″ hour, and she brought harsh questions to carve up Attorney General nominee John Ashcroft as a divisive disaster.
This time, the media’s favorite won. The Obama interview drew a whole hour, which Walters promoted with a gooey splash of Obama fawning and interview clips all across the ABC News schedule. She was so ubiquitous one might have expected her to plug the Obamas in a cameo appearance on an ABC soap opera like “All My Children.”
From The Huffington Post and Daily Kos to National Review and The Washington Times — and all the mainstream media in between — commentators are puzzling over who the dickens President-elect Barack Obama really is. On the progressive left, they are beginning to fear he may not be for “redistributive justice.” On The Wall Street Journal free market right, they are seeing in his economic team the possibility that he is really as safe for capitalism as a banker. Karl Rove has concluded: “(The) announcement of Mr. Obama’s economic team was reassuring. He’s generally surrounded himself with intelligent, mainstream advisers.”
Those impassioned by the anti-war slogan “no blood for oil” are getting nervous. According to Politico, Jodie Evans — a CodePink co-founder who, with her husband, helped raise a lot of money for Obama during the primary and general elections — recalled her interaction with Obama: “It has gotten to the point where he sees me coming and before I am close he just keeps repeating, ‘Jodie, I PROMISE, I will end the war, I promise I will end the war.’”
The mainstream media, still warmed by the success of their work electing Obama, comfortably headlined an article on the topic in the National Journal: “The President-Elect’s Appointments Reflect His Confidence In His Own Idiosyncratic Blueprint And His Ability To Hold Together An Eclectic Administration.”
It is a pity the conversation about what Obama might actually do as president didn’t begin in the media until after the election. But not to worry. As Emma Goldman, a 20th-century anarchist and Marxist, is reputed to have said: “In America, elections are the opium of the people.” Well, we have had our fix, no matter how uninformed we were during the injection.
I didn’t like everything Mr. Bush did. In fact, I am at odds with him on many issues. I supported the war effort though. I believed we could win, despite the idiots on the left and their constant caterwauling. This war was/is personal to me as well. I lost a good friend over there and my brother is over there now.
I am glad he had the balls not to listen to their mindless hysteria.
Saw this over at Blackfive and I decided to steal it.
GIBSON: One thing you’ll miss most?
BUSH: Well, I’ll miss being Commander-in-Chief. I have gotten to be — grown to be so appreciative of our military. It’s hard to believe that so many kids, and some not-so-kids, have volunteered to fight in a war. And I’ll miss — and it’s going to sound strange to you — I’ll miss meeting with the families whose son or daughter have fallen in combat, because the meetings I’ve had with the families are so inspirational. They — I mean, obviously, there’s a lot of sadness, and we cry, and we hug, and we occasionally laugh. And we share — I listen to stories. But the Comforter-in-Chief is always the comforted person.
Believe it or not, I’ll miss going to the hospitals as the Commander-in-Chief, and looking a kid in the eye, and have him say, heal me up, Mr. President, I want to go back in. And so, there will be a lot of these special moments that we’ll miss.
GIBSON: Was there a time when you thought, if I do this I will be compromising my principles –
GIBSON: — some decision where you really thought that that was at issue?
BUSH: The pullout of Iraq. It would have compromised the principle that when you put kids into harm’s way, you go in to win. And it was a tough call, particularly, since a lot of people were advising for me to get out of Iraq, or pull back in Iraq, or — and rather than listen to — I mean, I listened to a lot of voices, but ultimately, I listened to this voice: I’m not going to let your son die in vain; I believe we can win; I’m going to do what it takes to win in Iraq.
This is true leadership. Grab the bull by the horns and kick that fucker in the balls.
Just a side note for my pisslamist loving dimam (plural of dhimmi) on the left.
Muhammad, or should I say Mahound was an ominous destroyer and a prophet of murder.
