Il Duce Due*
My friend Marvin sent me this video which is perfect for today’s posting:
BTW…if you haven’t seen “Hating Breitbart,” SEE IT!!!! It finally came to Hawaii for a limited engagement. Breitbart was a fearless warrior and we should all learn from him. Favorite Breitbart line from the movie: “I embrace confrontation and you should, too! It’s the only way we can win.” AMEN. (*NOTE: “Due” is the number two in Italian)
Take it Away, Carl!
Here we go again.
With today’s Sunday network talk shows we can see the time-worn Clintonian strategy (insert: old story, irrelevant, no there, there, etc.) developing right before our eyes. It only works through cooperation of democrats and media opinion shapers.
Because Obama is a left wing liberal (a mild description) the media will only go so far with uncovering all his corruption (don’t forget, they leaked on themselves about IRS, likely to take heat off Benghazi). Even now, far left and left-of center news organizations are asking the ‘are-we-being-too-tough-on-Obama?’ questions. And if polls don’t move toward a compelling reason to investigate the corruption the heavy lifting will fall to the Republicans. And we know how they can be accused of conducting a ‘witch hunt.’
A similar pattern emerged during Watergate. The average Joe supported Nixon. But the constant drone of media personalities like Daniel Shore, Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, and others eventually changed perceptions that led to Nixon’s fall. Don’t forget, Nixon won re-election with 49 of 50 states in the 1972 election. Two years later, the US media helped remove him from office, heralding the era of ‘investigative’ journalism.
It may just work. Ever see the twisted relationships between Obama and the media? Like a revolving door! And there is a lot of off-the-record spinning going on between the administration with sympathic reporters. Even this week, the New York Times was caught red handed changing a headline showing the WH knew about these IRS abuses before the 2012 election, only to have that changed to words to the effect that the ‘GOP is savoring the attack.’ Not even subtle bias.
So, unless there are more revelations, count on this being a long hot summer. And don’t be frustrated if you notice the media back to carrying Obama’s water. Afterall, exposing him and his entire agenda as corruption personified will be painful for those most sympathetic to the cause.
Could I be mistaken in thinking the media would begin to protect Obama after a week of these revelations of corruption???????
We’ll look back and remember last week as the week it all started.
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!
