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:
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.
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…
