Moore always knew what sells to his readers: in this case, Rahmflu.

He writes a letter to Obama offering himself as a replacement to Rahm.

Michael does see the writing on the wall as many of us do

More and more people are looking at the wreckage of their middle class lives and they’re not buying the propaganda you’re catapulting anymore.  They’re starting to trust their lying eyes.  All you need is one good movement to catch fire.

But Moore has a readership/viewership to protect and he thinks that attacking Obama might cause him to lose some paying customers.

So he twists himself like a pretzel to “hate the sin,  absolve the sinner” So he comes up with laughable sentences such as

I will come to D.C. and clean up the mess that’s been created around you.

Barack – the little boy who can’t clean his room and needs MM to push the toys and empty bottles away. Or change his diaper. Or wipe his nose.

Or maybe shoo the flies that are sitting on his face.

Because in MM’s world (the one he’s selling today), Obama is just a sweet naive guy who got fooled by the mean Republicans

You’re such a good guy, Mr. President. You came to Washington with your hand extended to the Republicans and they just chopped it off.

Yeah, Michael. it was Republicans who danced a jig over the firing of a whole school of teachers. It was Republicans that overfed the evil, destructive Goldman Sachs. It was Republicans that made secret deals with pharma and hospitals and said they never campaigned on the public option. It was Republicans who just tried to dip in the Social Security and Medicare. It was Republicans who extended the Patriot Act and let Bush’s torturers off the hook. Or was it?

I guess that’s all part of “the mess created around Obama”. By whom?

Of course, Michael does know. He hinted it last September in his interview with Amy Goodman

But as I point out in the film, President Obama received an enormous amount of money from financial institutions, employees of those institutions. And the employees of Goldman Sachs were his number one private contributor, donating almost a million dollars to his campaign.

So, Michael, if you will replace Rahm, who will replace Goldman Sachs?

And why should I trust you any more than Rahm when you are so deceptive in your job application?

In B0botland this is their favorite topic. Pretty much wall to wall swooning with a few exceptions taken by Deaniacs

18. I love MM, but I have to correct him on one thing. It was Howard Dean
NOT Rahm Emmanuel who won a majority for the Dems in 2006. Other than that, as always, he makes good points and does it simply and with humor.
65. That Was ONE Comment That Stuck Out To Me!!! RAA-UUUMMM Took CREDIT
for it, and many in D.C., because they couldn’t stand Dean, just went right along and GAVE him the credit!

But IT WAS DEAN and his 50-state strategy that was so effective! Given RAA-UUUMMM’s ego, he just strutted right up and said… Yeah, I WAS THE ONE, I DID this, so “see me, hear me, LOVE ME!” While I was never one to like him much, when he pulled this one and dissed Dean, my ire increased immensely!

I have very little respect for him, and have several choice names to define him, but I’ll leave it at that!

I think I’ll give them that one. With all the glory that goes with it – cramming the party with anti-choicers leading to the crappy HCR today

Howard Dean is justifying fielding pro-life candidates in 2006 – his famous 50 states strategy did this to us.

“Those candidates are so much better on all the other issues”

(in other words, who cares about women’s rights – we get our numbers)

Only one seems to get it

It is time for the left and center-left people in this board to stop trying to project things on a center-right fellow like Obama. I understand that the Obama electoral machine was fairly hand wavy regardless their actual ideological leanings, probably to maximize their electoral base by allowing people to project their expectations on Mr. Obama. But honestly, he walks, talks, and quacks like a moderate conservative, so I think it is time to stop giving the benefit of the doubt… and stop enabling this whole charade.
Want liberal agendas and policies to be enabled or at least represented? Simple, elect actual liberals to office.

but the rest ignore that flicker of sanity. Moore made them feel good again – they can cheer and applaud again!

I still believe in a great President Barack Obama… I can only hope he makes it so!


Anther con-artist blew in town and made it all better. At least for his followers. The rest…

Slim pickings this Saturday. WaPo does gave several interesting headlines: The Va AG urging colleges to discriminate against gays, women having to take on yet another men job (condoms), Obama’s personal vendettas adding up to trouble for the party )they are becoming a joke on even more levels).

And those Obama personal vendettas bring us to NY. Quinnipiac giddily declared yesterday that

“Support for Gov. David Paterson erodes with every new headline.

so Obama Times keeps it up. I am too disgusted to feature them here. The Daily News chimes in – inventing news when none exists

I guess I’ll consider it huge news when a day comes without Paterson headlines

Slowly, the madness that was the 2008 primaries is unraveling to koolaid hangover ridden participants. Suddenly, things that we were screaming then are allowed in print. Like this from the B0bots

B0bots: “When Obama praised Reagan we thought he was just BS-ing”

Now, the reality check comes from the bowels of the media source that most distorted reality, making an unchanged Fox seem reasonable by comparison: MSNBC.

I don’t know what made Craig Crawford resign now. But he considers that now it can be told -how the manufacturing of the reality was maddening to him at the time. He first commented on a blog

i have never and never will forgive Chris for calling me a racist after the West Virginia primary (the last time I will ever go on air with him). Probably should have resigned then and there, but better late than never.”

I had stopped watching that channel since the South Carolina primaries so I was glad when he elaborated

As far as Chris is concerned, on Morning Joe after the West Virginia primary he accused me of always defending Clinton and what he claimed to be her racially motivated campaigning. That’s the problem. Trying to be fair became seen as bias in the new thinking over there.

He put it well. The media (MSNBC and everything else) has tried and executed Hillary as evil racist bitch from the very start. Sorta like Osama Bin Laden – only much worse, because she was also a woman and her last name was Clinton.

This was the premise of all commentary during primaries. “Us vs them”

Supporting Hillary was making you one of those enemies – forever. You were automatically a racist – and worse. There was never an amnesty for that crime, BTW, even if the badmouthing of Hillary had to reluctantly end (sorry, Dana Millbank).

But Craig Crawford was hardly a Hillary supporter. My guess – from his comment about the “lefty games” I take it his personal inclinations go more towards the GOP. But I do remember him as the more level headed pundit there, the one that was – occasionally – trying to inject some common sense in the hyperbole that was their campaigning for Obama. And in those dark times of “you’re either with us or a filthy racist that should die”, this was enough.

The hysteria at MSNBC, the rest of the media and B0bot quarter was such, that the mere “Woa! Slow down a little” from one was deemed high treason.

I think it bears keeping in mind – especially as a response to the sweeping  revisionism from the other side “Both sides did it” It was never “both sides” – as this thing was one sided from the very start.

And it also explains why I experience so much schadenfreude when I see the most rabid B0bots having to batten down the hatches in their bunker in B0botland for a change.

So, even if a bit late, thank you Craig for helping set the record straight. They have to live with what they did.
