A LITTLE COMMENTARY TO THE CONSERVATIVES AT BLOGS4VICTORY
Mark Noonan and Matt Margolis have written another book about . . . well I don’t know what it’s about yet. I have a few of the smart kids from the research department including Senior Researcher Carrie Trevillian who will begin writing her column here this week. They’re going to read the book and take it apart on a fact by fact but from what I’ve been able to see on Amazon.com it’s nothing more than a politcal hack job disguised as a half assed attack on a centrist President.
Here’s how I replied to the post at B4V which since it is based in fact and reason and not on religion the possession of assault rifles or doesn’t include a right to drill for oil on federal land it has been deleted. And these people say Hitler and Stalin were Liberals???
“But it occurs to me that maybe a lot of people are not understanding the purpose of the book. Its not just a hit piece of Obama – it is not designed merely to feed right wing anger, nor serve as a provocation of the left.”—Mark Edward Noonan.
Of course, it is all these things. I am not going to read the book but I’ve had a staff person here order it so we can break it down. I know you guys are tired of losing presidential elections but you do have one house of congress which you’ll likely hold until 2016. You got all your wishes when Obama was elected the first time. The economy was going south and like many conservatives you blamed Obama. You can still point to a sluggish economy today more than four years after his 2008 win. In the age of instant gratification there isn’t a single conservative that I know that doesn’t start a conversation about the US economy. Now the right is dropping the ball by focusing on this meaningless witch hunt about the Bengahzi attacks. Some have even called for Impeachment hearings. Fine. If you want the US to be a one party state when your kids are all in their 40s keep it up.
It doesn’t matter what was or was not done in Benghazi for this simple reason. Had Mitt Romney won the 2012 presidential election would any conservative still be drumbeating about hearings or Impeachment? I don’t think so even with Hillary breathing down your necks because you would have the advantage of incumbency. So to hell with Benghazi and all this fake outrage it’s just political grandstanding of the worst order. There will still be people here talking about Benghazi by July but as soon as Congress takes its summer holiday the issue will die even if Sharyl Atkisson does a strip tease reading the State Department emails on the capitol steps.
Here’s the problem I’ve got with people who really aren’t journalists or researchers but simply partisans writing books about a sitting president. if you guys were interested in the truth in politics both of you would have been drumbeating your readers to go to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight.com and read why you were going to lose unless you had a massive turnout. I told you to do that months before the election when i was calling for Obama nearly by the electoral margin he won by. None of you geniuses could see that your base was about to sit on their hands because you were too busy being rope a doped by Obama’s first debate flop. And then on election day the sucker punch. Priceless.
Back in 2007 I was asked, on a talk show about US politics, to rank where George W Bush should sit as compared to all the previous presidents. I answered at the time, “I’d place him 20th today,” and the interviewer seemed shocked. She asked why i would rank him so high despite all the noise I’d made during the height of the Iraq War. My answer was simple, “The man isn’t done yet, so why would I rank him low because I disagree with his policies or a conservative to rank him hihg because they have to to seem credible as a pundit when he isn’t done yet?” I feel the same way about the current US president.
