~ “LETTERS FROM AMERICA” - by The Metaphysical Peregrine ~
The Democrat Party, since the election of Barack Obama, for example, has been incessantly attacking the Koch brothers. They are, quite simply, wealthy Conservative contributors to the Republican Party and associated Conservative candidates and causes. The attacks are scurrilous, vile, and carry not one bit of truth. Their major crime of course, is they are rich. Which is itself rich, since a couple nights ago Obama had a $40,000 a plate fund raising dinner, attended by his Leftist Hollywood groupthink multimillionaire friends and sycophants. So far that dinner has raised $15 million. They hate the rich while hiring legions of accountants and lawyers to shelter their investments and income. Obama hates the rich while taking their money along with Wall Street fat cat’s cash, and Leftist billionaires like Gates and Soros.
An example of the lengths to which the Democrat campaign machine will go utilizing the Alinsky model of personal attack, is the story released about three days ago of Romney in high school, 1965, being a bully. In a breathless exposé, the Leftist Washington Post said Romney bullied some kid, cutting his hair, and something about making anti-homosexual comments. The main source of the story it later turns out, wasn’t even at the alleged event. The man is dead, recently passed, so can’t be interviewed, and his surviving family has no recollection of the event. They’ve asked the re-elect Obama press to stop, there’s no truth to the story, and they don’t want this used as a political weapon. Three days later the story is still front and center.
Meanwhile, Our Dear Leader gets a pass. Here’s what he was doing in high school from his book Dreams of My Father:
"I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though. ..." … "Junkie. Pothead. That's where I'd been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man."
"Except the highs hadn't been about that, me trying to prove what a down brother I was. Not by then, anyway. I got high for just the opposite effect, something that could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory. I had discovered that it didn't make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmate's sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you'd met down at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl. ... You might just be bored, or alone. Everybody was welcome into the club of disaffection."
Also from the book, Obama relates an incident pushing and shouting at a girl. What a bully! And to a girl! Couldn't even pick on someone his own size! All this gets a pass, that he relates himself, yet an unsubstantiated story from nearly 50 years ago about teenager Romney is still top of the fold after three days in the Jurassic Press.
The Obama administration has zero successes. His “morning in
” commercial talks up his successes such as green energy investment, but $billions have been lost and $millions sent overseas. His commercial says otherwise, but the names of the companies that took taxpayer money and went overseas are public record, as are the names of green companies that have failed. The commercial talks about millions of jobs created and there is zero evidence of this. He touts last month’s drop in unemployment to 8.1%. That’s accounted for by an increase of 522,000 people dropping out of the labor force so far this year. Unemployment benefits were increased to 99 weeks, and the number of jobless citizens keeps increasing. Even illegal’s from America are leaving the job market is so bad. When a person runs out of benefits, they’re not longer counted among the unemployed. There are 88,419,000 unemployed people now. This is the lowest job participation rate since 1981 after Leftist President Carter, doing the same thing Obama is now, tanked the economy. Mexico
This whole thing is all about distractions, because this president and his political party have caused the cost of gas and other energy to increase, unemployment to increase, debt to increase, wages to stagnate, investments to stay in a holding pattern. So far the distractions have included gay marriage, Osama bin Laden, student loan interest rates, the Buffett Rule, Trayvon Martin, contraception, right to healthcare, and Romney’s high school pranks.
I was glad to see Romney respond to a pro-Obama alleged reporter’s questions about all the social issues listed above with, “Aren’t there issues of significance that you’d like to talk about?” Good for him! He must stay on economic and employment issues.
One last thing. About Obama’s “brave” and “historic” coming out in favor of gay marriage. He said in 1996 he was in favor of gay marriage. When he began running for office, especially president, he affirmed the Defense of Marriage Act and the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman. Now he has “evolved”. When a Republican changes his/her position it’s a flip flop and hypocrisy. When His Divine Majesty does it, he “evolves”. There’s cynical political opportunism here too. His announcement was made just before the big Clooney fundraiser, obviously to suck more money out of the groupthink anti-heterosexual marriage/family Leftists (taking advantage here of a Leftist labeling tactic). It’ll be interesting too how this slap in the face to Christians pans out, and how his Islamofacist fellow travelers in Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood respond. (To show how much Obama is in bed with them, he’s appointed a member of the Muslim Brotherhood to Homeland Security; kinda like FDR appointing a Nazi to the Dept of War.)
This is just the start of the battle between the totalitarian objectives of Obama, Democrat Party and other Leftists, and Conservatives and a few leaders in the Republican Party wanting to reassert the
being a free constitutional republic. Romney hasn’t been nominated yet, but PAC’s and SuperPacs are doing okay with the counter attacks to the distractions, personal attacks and lies of the Left. US
This may go down as the meanest nastiest presidential election in US history.
