Sure He’s Ruining The Country…But He Has Such A Nice Smile

Like a reformed sinner from the back hills who can’t resist the siren call of that sweet  old ‘shine, conservative talk show host Michael Medved is backsliding.  In a February 14th op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Medved, a rehabilitated liberal and one-time aide to Left Coast socialist Ron Dellums, has sent Barack Obama what amounts to a happy Hallmark greeting for Valentine’s Day.  In his piece (Obama Isn’t Trying To Harm America), Medved opines,

Republicans already face a formidable challenge in convincing a closely divided electorate that the president pursues wrong-headed policies. They will never succeed in arguing that those initiatives have been cunningly and purposefully designed to wound the republic. In Mr. Obama’s case, it’s particularly unhelpful to focus on alleged bad intentions and rotten character when every survey shows more favorable views of his personality than his policies.

Moreover, the current insistence in seeing every misstep or setback by the Obama administration as part of a diabolical master plan for national destruction disregards the powerful reverence for the White House that’s been part of our national character for two centuries.

Oh? It didn’t take a diabolic master plan to wound the Republic, Mr. Medved.  All it took was a Congress filled to overflowing with socialists and their fellow travelers, a fanatical willingness to ignore the expressed will of the American people, and a liberal mass media more than willing to propagandize and prevaricate on behalf of their favorite son.  But the rub is this: it matters little if Obama is weakening the nation by malevolent intent, by sheer incompetence, or by both.  What matters is that he is doing it.

Evidence for Malevolent Intent:

KeyWiki’s Obama Files: Radical Associates, Radical Appointments, Ties To Islam, Democratic Socialists of America, New Party/Progressive Chicago, Communist Party USA, Committees of Correspondence
Newsbusters: Barack Obama and Bill Ayers
World Net Daily: Obama’s Radical, Anti-American Czars
Evidence for Incompetence:
Newsweek: Obama’s Egypt debacle and the vacuum it exposes
American Thinker: Obama’s Gulf Oil Spill Commission and the Missing Experts
Evidence for Both:

  1. A nice smile? Not in my opinion. I just despise that grin-flashing that he does.

  2. Medved: another name to file away in the “I thought he had more sense than this” cabinet.

  3. By the way my husband absolutely loved your words of wisdom comparing conversations with liberals to shampooing a coconut.

    Yep, he reads my posts from the ship. Thanks for giving him a laugh, he can always use one.

      Thanks, and my regards to your husband. I’d originally intended to respond to your commenter, whose statistics on firearms fatalities are generally incorrect (thread is here), but I realized that argument was futile, so I took my own advice. After all, the same people who think Obamacare is Constitutional are usually the same ones who can blithely ignore sub-freezing temperatures, recurring ice ages, millions of years of history, and scientific opinion to the contrary, and blame the worldwide chill on warm weather. They’re as adverse to facts as skunks are to soap.

    Well, the libs have a new target, Darrell Issa.
    I hope he has spine enough to stand up to them.
    True Saul Alinsky tactics are in play.
    They are going after his past.
    Unbelievable double standards are again in play.

    • Bob Mack says:

      But of course. That one’s also from the old Clinton playbook, when they went after Ken Starr. They have to discredit the investigator, otherwise they’re toast.
      According to Newsflavor’s White House Insider:

      Lastly but most important, flurry of activity coming out of Issa office very recently. Whispers now circulating something “concrete” has been found by Issa that is harmful to White House. Enough so that legal reps from White House most recently met directly with Issa office. Actually believe the Bill Daley appointment made in part to also help assist in heading that situation off in favor of the WH. I still don’t trust Issa to follow through. Fear he has gotten too cozy with WH but I could be wrong. I hope so. As to that something “concrete” is it related to the scandal I maintain is out there festering? Birther related? Not certain, but an important thing to realize the growing number of Dems who are hopeful that is the case. That is a huge shift from just this time last year. More and more of us are increasingly angry at this administration and the damage it has done to so many inside the party.

    Issa should be head down and forward into the wind.
    Let them denigrate him, he’s just a congressman.
    If Issa is effective in exposing just a portion of Obamas past, it may be the start of Barrys downfall.
    One chink in Obamas armor could be his waterloo.
    His administration is doing anything possible at this point to restrict information from his past.
    He has exposed himself as an inadequate leader many times.
    Confusion is a weapon used against the ignorant.
    We are not confused.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Here’s Limbaugh on Obama’s proposed budget:

      RUSH: Here are the numbers on the red ink. It comes from Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters: “The 2011 budget shortfall, which is the responsibility of the previous Congress, is now projected to be $1.65 trillion.” That’s the budget deficit. “If accurate, this means that since the Democrats took over Congress in 2007, [the country has] posted over $5 trillion in deficits. For the record, that’s more combined non-inflation-adjusted red ink than the United States of America had created in all of the years of its existence prior to [2007]. In just four years, the Democrats recorded combined deficits greater than what had been posted in the prior 220 years. That is astounding, and one of the architects of this spending opens his presser today saying that we have to live within our means!

      This is sort of like Colonel Sanders saying, “We gotta stop killing chickens! We gotta stop killing chickens!”

      Let us pray AFVET that Issa is head strong, focused and equally successful. Obama needs to land on his rear HARD.

    I have not been of much use to you these past two weeks but my heart is still 100% for America of the 50 States; you will see me back commenting in your posts soon.

    Please allow me going off-topic just this once

    I am in a way fighting the same enemy here and need your help in this Post at:

    Any word of encouragement, a few loud ‘Remember the Alamo’ cries, or ‘Down with the Clinton Media’ or anything. You all have fertile minds. I need you in here.

  8. Angel says:

    I’ll go with the malevolent intent theory Bob….God save us~!

  9. Maybe Medved wasn’t getting the attention from his old friends in the msm and decided the other side of the aisle is more familiar to him.

    Yes, what matters is what he is doing. There is good reason to believe those who will vote for his smile, might not show up at the polls – or at least will not be as motivated as the thinking people out here. Good commentary, Bob.

    • bydesign001 says:

      I agree Maggie. Have talked to a lot of people here in Brooklyn, many of whom voted for the first time in their lives in 2008. They are totally up in arms and extremely disappointed in their messiah.

      Received two emails today from two women who are unemployed and on the government dole. They are apopleptic over Obama’s budget cuts which will hit them hard. They are at the point that they can’t stand to see the man’s face or hear his voice.

      Many of the people who voted for Obama in 2008, now claim that they were just “cutting a brother a break.” I can tell you that many of them will not be coming out to vote for Obama in 2012.

      • bedesign001, that is very encouraging to me. I’m out here in the very red Oklahoma, and know no one who voted for Obama or ever would – but obviously most did. So when I hear this coming out of Brooklyn, it is heartening. Thanks for passing that on.

        • Bob Mack says:

          Hi Maggie. I’d be more encouraged if the two women BD talks about were angrier about Obama’s subversion of the Constitution than over their own sacred cows being gored. But, as long as he isn’t re-elected, I’m happy enough.

      • bydesign001 says:

        Bob, I totally agree.

        It bothers me as well that those who are turning against Obama are turning against him because they feel that Obama is denying them “their due.” In the meantime, it has never occurred to any of them that dependency on food stamps, welfare, etc. means sacrificing one’s liberty (“what fools these mortals be”).

        I too pray that Obama is a one-term president.

  10. bydesign001 says:

    Bob, My patience is thin in that I can no longer stand these liberals, RINOs, etc. who are so eager to give Obama a pass STILL.

    One need not be a rocket scientist to realize that Obama’s actions are intentional. Barack Obama is evil and there is no dancing around that.

    How many have foresaken God for this false prophet and they haven’t even realized it.

  11. Ike Jakson says:

    I am over the main hurdle with the Media scumbags over this side.

    Bob, I am inclined to go 100% with Lady BD on this one. He knows the voters are probably more fickle at this stage than ever before. I don’t believe the ever varying predictions of Obama moving left or right or centre.

    This man wants to destroy America of Old has always been his only agenda and to achieve it he will smile, lie, cheat, double-speak and whatever and whenever he feels he has to just to get the votes.

    He will be most happy man to see America sinking into anarchy that will make it ungovernable for a “centrist” party. You guys really have to read African History. Obama is no Muslim, Socialist or Communist; he is the supreme Liberanarchist. But that then, is what a lot of people want at this time.

    I shall pray for you but the voter may yet get what he wants in 2012 and then it will be goodbye America of the 50 States for a long time. Democracy and Freedom [which put together with both gone awry gives you Liberanarchism] will destroy America; it sounds silly but that is a strong possibility what we may see looking back to the past in 3012.

    I want to say another thing today that you guys must weigh carefully and ponder well before you judge me. Much has been said by the Lefties and the so-called human rights idiots about Tiananmen Square 1989; listen carefully. China did the right thing for China that day; a Government has a duty to protect the 99% of his law-abiding citizenry against the 1% and that day the dissenters weren’t even 1% of 1%. You have to shoot the troublemaker.

    You can’t do that anymore in America, and that’s a large part of your problem. That is also why America is no longer the World leader and why China and Russia will rule supreme for decades to come.

    But I will pray for you because I fell in love with GA, and TN, KY and the Blue Ridge in NC years ago.

    When you do have the time do pop into that same Post from time to time. The story will continue and much of it will relate to this comment.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Hi, Ike. Whatever Obama is, I’m against it. As far as ‘shooting troublemakers’, I’d be all for it except now I’m considered one of them. So I guess I have to continue to support our Constitutional laws.
