Magic, Bread & Circuses

It has been observed by many others for months now that the Obama campaign has been borrowing an old trick from the magician playbook: misdirection. They want to make us look away from the economy and towards that scary thing over there!! Thus, this year we’ve had:

  • the presumptive Republican nominee already having to deal with an attempted take-down of his wife,
  • we’ve had report upon report geared to make us resent his wealth which he legally earned,
  • we’ve had a national hand-wringing-contest over our inability to find birth control,

and now we get this headline:

Mitt Romney’s prep school classmates recall pranks, but also troubling incidents

Seriously? The Washington Post, a paper that is literally on life-support, wants me to believe that this Ward Cleaver guy who is running for President is really supposed to be Biff Tannen instead? Sorry, guys, no can do.

This has nothing to do with Romney; this has everything to do with Obama and his record while in office.

The Media will do all in their power to drag/kick/fireman-carry their candidate (Obama) across the finish line this year. If that means they have to give credence to every stupid, half-baked, 1/32-of-truth story that they find, they’ll do so. If it’s a dog from 25 years ago, or a sketchy tale fleshed-out with innuendo from when Romney was a teenager, they’ll gleefully run with it.

Most of the news with which we’ve been bombarded has been just the latest misdirection in this 4-year smoke-and-mirrors show. We simply can’t let ourselves be fooled into looking away.


All of which leads to this video, which should serve as a brief stroll down memory lane and a reminder of just what is at stake this year.

God Bless Bill Whittle…

    We’ve not even seen the tip of the iceberg that is the chicanery this administration will attempt in order to divert the attention of the American people from their dismal record……

      Agreed, Pgh.

      Which just means we need to remain AWARE of the trick, in order to AVOID the trick.

    He may have skipped a class. He may have not turned in his homework once. This is definitely the edge of a firestorm..

      Imagine the coverage if ANY candidate admitted to:

      Selling drugs
      Using cocaine
      Eating dog
      Consorting with avowed communists
      Personal relationships with known and admitted domestic terrorists

      The press would be ALL OVER that! Right? RIGHT?


      • justturnright

        What is this “press” to which you refer?

        • livinrightinpgh

          Your friends at CBS, CNN, MSNBC, the NY Times, et al,

          • justturnright

            Oh, ….them??!

            Yeah, I guess at one time they’d have been known as the ‘press’.

            Since they now they function as a combination PR firm/Super-PAC for Dems, ….I keep forgetting about their erstwhile status as journalists.

            My bad.

  3. Everybody knew this was coming from the MSM along with the Obama campaign, they will do anything to not be talking about Obama’s record. It’s only the beginning of an endless attack on Romeny by Obama’s enforcer the MSM.

      You’re right, Blaine. But ’cause we know that’s their strategy will help us call it out virtually in advance.

      New Media didn’t exist as widely 4 years ago as it does today.

      We WILL win this thing…….
      One day, one person, at a time.

  4. I like Bill Whittle. And he’s absolutely right. There are a lot of conservatives who complain about the government and the direction of the country but they do not vote. If you don’t vote, you have no basis for complaint.

    • justturnright

      Amen, DD! That’s why every one of us needs to get to the fence-sitters and get them off their tails.

      Winning minds-and-hearts, brotha.
      Every day.
