The Day The Teleprompter Died.
The press ignored the gaffe. SNL will not mock Obama as the Stuttering Man. But the truth is out there. Drudge went with it. Blogger Jim Hoft went with it. The Army of Davids continue to school the media on the resiliency of the truth. It does not go away.
This is a fascinating reversal of fortune for liberals. Eight summers ago, the media stood at Barack Obama's beck and call, heralding a rookie senator who had accomplished nothing in life but had surfed the white guilt of affirmative action to the top of the Democratic Party. He was an empty suit with a teleprompter. Three days after his ascension to the highest office in the world he deigned to meet with the loyal opposition. ABC reported:
Obama told Cantor this morning that "on some of these issues we're just going to have ideological differences." The president added, "I won. So I think on that one, I trump you."And now, voters will Trump Obama.
Trump's rise eight years later is the fruition of eight years of ideology by Obama and company, in which they seized upon the nation's problems to advance their Marxism. There was this passage from the same story:
He specifically mentioned a provision in the bill that would allow 50 states to offer Medicaid family planning service, like contraceptives, with the federal government's 9-to-1 match. Republicans say that whether this is good public policy, it has nothing to do with an economic stimulus.Contraception and circuses. I get it. Young women want to have sex without consequences just like men do. This is why venereal disease is rampant. Oops, turns out previous generations preached abstinence not just for birth control. But what does this have with stimulating the economy?
Well, absolutely nothing. That was not Obama's concern. He was pushing leftovers from the '60s. This time it was free sex.
By now, most Americas are tired of pushing ideology instead of fixing the problems. Left, right, it does not matter. Trump is very in-your-face about confronting the elitist ideologues in Washington sneering at the victims of their policies. Remember this putdown of Trump supporters in the National Review through its loathsome toady Kevin Williamson:
If you spend time in hardscrabble, white upstate New York, or eastern Kentucky, or my own native West Texas, and you take an honest look at the welfare dependency, the drug and alcohol addiction, the family anarchy — which is to say, the whelping of human children with all the respect and wisdom of a stray dog — you will come to an awful realization. It wasn’t Beijing. It wasn’t even Washington, as bad as Washington can be. It wasn’t immigrants from Mexico, excessive and problematic as our current immigration levels are. It wasn’t any of that. Nothing happened to them. There wasn’t some awful disaster.
There wasn’t a war or a famine or a plague or a foreign occupation. Even the economic changes of the past few decades do very little to explain the dysfunction and negligence — and the incomprehensible malice — of poor white America. So the gypsum business in Garbutt ain’t what it used to be. There is more to life in the 21st century than wallboard and cheap sentimentality about how the Man closed the factories down. The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets.
Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.David French defended this.
And Bill Kristol wants French to be president.
This is not guilt by association. This is being an accessory after the fact in both cases. It's not like some klansman you never met endorsing you. French -- whose service in Iraq I greatly respect -- embraced Williamson as a colleague. And this was after that disastrous piece.
But according to the David French crowd Trump is not just Der Führer to the National Review staff by virtue of his German ancestry, but Trump is an addictive pain-killer. If only those lazy asses got up and moved to the city, where there is no unemployment and there are no drugs.
Americans are sick of a bunch of smart-asses in Washington pushing policies that harm America. The mocked now are doing the mocking.
And guess what? The press can no longer cover-up Obama's gaffes.
The-the-the-the-the-the-that's all folks.
