Well, it’s debate day, dudes and dolls. I started to embed the latest example of Obama’s racist pandering to surface, but I’ll just stop at that link to it. Is there a point in pounding on it? There’s nothing in the video that should surprise anyone who’s been paying attention.
Alas, with a lapdog media machine, it’s easy to create and keep people who think they’re paying attention. Obama is a uniter. Obama has increased federal spending less than anyone since Eisenhower. No one could have done any better with
BUSH DID IT this economy than Obama. You see, that is what “the news” says. And for folks who get most or all of their hard news from a screen at a gas station or in line at the bank, it is fact.
(No point in going into folks who think smirking jackasses on late-night television are news sources, either. They’re wholly convinced of their brilliance.)
I’m hoping for something highly resistant to spin tonight to play incessantly on those screens—something media outlets will have no choice but to show, and something for which the Obama rationalization is hopelessly wan. Like, oh, “you didn’t build that.” That was a substantial blunder, and one I think the Romney campaign let drop too soon.
Obama’s legacy is already tragically extensive. Let’s hope his journey back to Chicago begins in earnest tonight.
