    Rose-Colored Glasses Are Never Made In Bifocals 

    The bloom is off the rose for CNN’s senior political analyst Gloria Borger.

    Borger is crestfallen over the announcement that the 40-year marriage of Al and Tipper Gore is ending.

    “…the shock it sent is about us, not them. It’s about the way we perceive (and choose to perceive) what’s put in front of our eyes, especially when it comes to the political world.”

    “All of which leads to President Obama. He was elected because he is cool, calm and analytical. That’s what we wanted to see after George W. Bush, so we made him president. But now the disaster in the Gulf has made many of us want to see someone else—with plenty of anger, emotion and bravado. We want him to yell at BP. We want him to loudly tell us he’s whipping the cleanup effort into shape. We can’t tell BP ourselves, so we want him to do it for us. Fair enough. But that’s not the person we elected.”

    Dear woman, this gelding you say “we” made president is an illusion that came with fine print.  Fine print that nobody wanted to read—that is, nobody in the corporate-controlled media.  Americans throughout this nation did not vote for this man.  Those that did were swayed by the puff pieces endlessly spewed by idiotarians just like you.

    The hallmarks of this regime’s actions and speeches seem to be to do many small but sinister things in deep background, a few large and ruinous moves using sleight of hand  in the foreground, give little details—to take no questions, and, if a question is entertained, to give no answer. Crudely put—a circle jerk.

    It is because of the media’s bargain with the devil that this gelding reached the Oval Office.  It is because news readers like you, who abdicated your responsibility to be a robust Fourth Estate, that America and all that she stands for is in peril.

    You should be very proud of yourself Gloria.

    Uh Oh: Carville, Matthews And Now Mo Kick “President Spock” To The Curb 

    Ed Morrissey of Hot Air wonders aloud, “How did Dowd’s column ever make it past a New York Times editor? Fascinating.

    In Maureen Dowd’s op-ed piece appearing in the NYT, spokesbot Dowd compares Fearless Reader to Mr. Spock citing his behavior as illogical.

    She writes, “Too often it feels as though Barry is watching from a balcony, reluctant to enter the fray until the clamor of the crowd forces him to come down. The pattern is perverse. The man whose presidency is rooted in his ability to inspire withholds that inspiration when it is most needed.”

    Dowd continues, “For five weeks, it looked as though Obama considered the gushing that became the worst oil spill in U.S. history a distraction, like a fire alarm going off in the middle of a law seminar he was teaching. He’ll deal with it, but he’s annoyed because it’s not on his syllabus.”

    What one sees is a man stalked by an unreasonable fantasy supported by a rag-tag collection of apparatchiks with a greed for power—a man that does not stand with his feet planted in the American soil.

      I just wonder if they’re preparing the ground for Hillary to make a comeback. Look how Barack had to bring in Bill to save his sorry rear.

        PUMAs and Hillary peeps feel certain she is making a comeback because her site is up and accepting donations and apparently her people are sending out emails on the DL. Personally, I think she’s just as progressive as BO, but I don’t think she’d surround herself with such a group of utter incompetents.

        Once the left starts thinking about how much they’ll lose by turning on BO, they’ll be back towing the line in no time. He’s their last best hope to get their prog crap pushed through. And time’s atickin’.

    Fearless Reader’s Dead Zone 

    Toby Hamden, writing for The Telegraph, notes that “When any political leader feels they have to declare that they are ‘fully engaged’ in an issue, it is clear that they are in trouble. Talking about it undermines the very point you are trying to make—not to mention that pesky Oil Spill Cam showing that, forty days into the Deepwater Horizon disaster, not a whole lot had been achieved.”

    When the president-in-training visited Grande Isle, LA on May 28, 2010 he looked like a “law student suddenly fascinated by a science project.”  Hamden’s description made me giggle uncontrollably.

    Another delightful descriptive, which incidentally makes me love Toby Hamden now, was:  “Obama engaged in the obligatory populist bashing of Big Oil and, of course, demonstrated the Obama Administration’s version of Tourette’s Syndrome, blaming the previous administration for the situation when, by my reckoning, it’s a full 16 months since Bush left office.”

    Hamden rightly points out that Friday’s visit was Obama’s second to Louisiana in the thirty-nine days since disaster struck.  In the same period, Bush visited the post-Katrina region seven times.

    USS Neverdock implores us to take a quick look at Obama’s record, something the left wing media steadfastly refused to do during the campaign, shows he is unfit to be president. Add these home field disasters to Obama’s miserable handling of the economy and foreign affairs, and the writing is on the wall—America is headed for disaster.

    Little Miss Attila contends that parallels between the Gulf oil spill and the RMS Titanic continue.

    How long will it be before this man-child orders the Oil Spill Cam shut down?  The mesmerizing images from the sea bed are infuriating the American public and give unadulterated evidence that this is not Obama’s Katrina—it is his Dead Zone.
