Has anyone noticed how flawless the kabuki dance of the so call transfer of power between 2 parties is going?
Michelleloves Laura, W admires B0…No AF1 gate, office supply gate – or even responsibility for torture and war crimes? Nobody, not even the former “Impeach Bush”crowd is calling for accountability of Bushco anymore.
They are all busy with the perpetual enemy: the Clintons.
Sometimes in 2001 Bill Clinton was asked: “why do they hate you so much”?
“Because I won” he replied. “They thought themselves entitled to power and I took it away from them”
At the time I thought that ‘they” were the Republicans. Now that I see Cheney’s cousin feted by the same press that savaged Clinton, Gore and Kerry I realized that it’s not a matter of parties but one of class.
We have a ruling class that’s not necessarily confined to parties
Barack Hussein Obama, who many believe will become the 44th president, is kin to President George W. Bush, Senator Robert Byrd, Harry Truman and Dick Cheney. SOURCE
The Clintons were interlopers in this closed circle – and so was Palin. It’s why both were attacked by both parties and pundits – they were threatening the order of succession.
Anyone looking in the media of internet discourse thee ways will identify the same target of anymosity we’ve been used t for 16 years: the Clintons.
Bush started 2 unnecessary wars, tortured and flaunted laws? Who cares? It’s Vince Foster time yet again!
The veterans are at it again: Hitchens, Huffington, Tweety, Sullivan and their reinforcements from the left that Obama’s campaign created are back in action.
W managed to shift responsibility to Clinton for every thing he botched for years. Hos recession was even moved from March 2001 to March 2000 by the media and 9.11 was also Clinton’s responsibility. The unrest in the ME was Clinton’s fault – he raised expectations by trying to bring peace.
And I expect Hillary will get a lot of heat for everything going wrong in the world.
During his “bitter” remarks Obama identified W and Clinton as equal causes of the unhappiness of the people in PA.
But throughout the campaign, W’s name came out surprisingly little.
“Hillary is the anti-bush, Obama is the a-Bush”
said Bill Schneider giving the GOP the secret signal of how to inervene in the primaries at the time.
Hardly anyone is anti-Bush these days. I bought a large collection of anti-Bush buttons at a garage sale recently – “it was time to clear the deck”.
So, W gets off scotch free. And B0bots return to what they do best, joining the other side:
BLAME THE CLINTONS
This reminds me of the incident on 9.11 with W in NYC: a little girl shows him the photograph of her father. They were about to post it on the missing person board as W was visiting. In a sudden act of “ME” inspiration, W takes the photo, scrawls his signature on it telling the girl that when they find her father she can tell him she met W. (They loved this so much they included in the W – hero of 9.11 movie)
So, now we have Jr. Jr in his Baba Wawa massage interview going through a similar moment
BARBARA WALTERS: You know, I don’t have to stress the fact that this is such a hard time for this country. Do you have a Thanksgiving message that you would like to give to the people?
“The people”? Wouldn’t “Americans” or perhaps “your fellow Americans” be customary? And “give,” instead of “send” or “share”? Maybe I’m being picky here, but have a look and tell me if it doesn’t almost come across as Walters inviting a monarch to bestow something on his huddled peons.
BARACK OBAMA: I want to remind people that, as tough as times are right now, and they’re a lot tougher for millions of people around the country than they are for Michelle and I that, we have been through tough times before, and the extraordinary blessings of being an American, of having a nation that has a tradition of communities pulling together. A country where somebody like myself, or somebody like Michelle, has a shot, no matter what the circumstances.
He is now free to indulge in the “I am the symbol” speech which he unveiled too early
“This is the moment . . . that the world is waiting for. I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.”
I feel as if he is reading the stage directions from his character script, handed to him by the manufacturers. Like Poppy famously was doing in “message – I care”
