|Obama Shoots Self in Foot, While Media Praises His Flexibility|
Media Gabriel Garnica, Senior Writer
Everyone is well aware of the fact that the liberal media will twist itself into a pretzel to keep its beloved candidates looking fine, but we are witnessing the pretzel of all pretzels with regard to the media’s contortions to keep its beloved Barack Obama as beloved as possible.
Obama’s Expanding Abortion
Speaking at a recent Stems-Cells-R-Us Annual Convention, the Illinois Senator stated, “What difference does two or three minutes inside or outside the womb really make? One’s ‘late-term’ and the other’s ‘postpartum’. Who’s to say if the postpartum fetus is truly viable? Postpartum fetuses die all the time for all manner of reasons…”
First we intentionally keep a practically born infant’s head inside the womb to avoid murder so we can plunge scissors into his head and suck out his brains and call that acceptable. Now, according to Senator Obama, worrying about a few minutes inside or a few minutes outside the womb is a petty annoyance easily brushed aside with drivel about survival chances. What next dear Senator, declaring that killing the baby before she leaves the hospital is “reasonably near” its birth since, after all, many babies die within their first year of life?
Jack and Jill Doing The Nasty on The Hill
I never realized until our Senator of faith informed me that a five-year-old can benefit from sex education in any form. After all, don’t most if not all of the kids that age you know just run around teeming with questions about sexuality? Let me see if I have this right, dear Senator: Nothing wrong with killing a baby just after birth if so desired and, if not, no problem with teaching him about sex before he can spell the word?
Can’t We All Just Get Along?
According to Senator Friendly, it is childish and counterproductive to actually refuse to meet with people who clearly want the destruction of your country and way of life. I guess that the our enlightened Senator from Illinois would either like to work with those people to set a bilateral timetable for our destruction or, in the alternative, work to set a date by which we can fully embrace those nations’ ideologies.
The New Teflon Candidate
When Mitt Romney dared to rightly criticize Obama’s Planned Parenthood rally drivel, the media went after Romney and virtually ignored the absurdity of Obama’s statements. One gets the very real sense that if Obama declared that this country should become communist and some conservative criticized him for such statements, the media headlines would read “CONSERVATIVES CRITICIZE OBAMA’S CHOICE OF RED AS FAVORITE COLOR”.
The Strange Hillary Paradox
On one hand, the media almost seems more determined to defend and enhance Obama than it does Clinton, which is something I never thought possible regarding anyone. On the other hand, Obama has become so absurd that even Hillary is able to sound like the relative voice of reason next to his, even if clearly only through political opportunism and being slightly better at keeping her foot out of her mouth or, for that matter, shooting herself in said foot.
In brief, we face a situation where the media bends over backward to favor two candidates while one of those candidates is seemingly doing everything in his power to alienate swing voters in the name of some claim of “freshness” that the other candidate calls “inexperience”.
To borrow from Senator Obama’s own profound wisdom regarding abortion
What difference does two or three ridiculous statements inside or outside the campaign really make? One’s shooting oneself in the foot and the other is sticking one’s foot in one’s mouth. Who’s to say if the campaign is truly viable? Once promising campaigns die all the time for all manner of reasons…including patterns of absurd drivel dressed as anything profound spewed to adoring drones.
At the end of the day, if a smiling liberal candidate utters anything asinine in a forest of liberal media coverage, is there a backlash?
