Dateline: Washington. Saturday night. Important news! First sentence:
Barack Obama opened his presidency by breaking sharply from George W. Bush’s unpopular administration, but he mostly avoided divisive partisan and ideological stands.
Pop quiz: Is this, a) Pravda, or b), some random Junior High School newspaper?
Answer: neither. It’s the Associated Press.
Let’s see… avoiding divisive, partisan stands…
Would that be referring to Obama’s partisan rush to sign wildly unpopular taxpayer funding of abortions? To his moves to release terrorists we know will rejoin the battle against us? (Because their compatriots already have.) To his finger-wagging interactions with Congressional Republicans being told they really shouldn’t listen to Rush anymore if they want to play nice? To his oh-so-slick-and-subtle abandonment of Israel? To his calling global warming ‘eradication’ a priority during one of the coldest winters on record? To his plans to do more in one bill to create socialism on these shores and bankrupt the country (while needlessly fomenting race and class warfare) than anyone in the last seventy years?
Or maybe it’s just me. I must be the divisive one to be thinking all these non-adulatory thoughts…
What universe are these people living in?! Honestly. I wasn’t going to blog any more this weekend but, it seems as though every time I think the media can’t get any more loopy, they prove me wrong.
Pursuing policies I disagree with is one thing. Calling them non-ideological and non-divisive is beyond hallucinatory. I keep coming back to it: “God sends them a strong delusion so that they may believe what is false”.
