Two news items today make us mock JournoLister Ben Smith and drug sniffing dog Andrew Sullivan.
Ben Smith’s big Buzzfeed “scoop” today is that Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio has Mormon roots. Rubio was a Mormon at age 8!
When at Politico Ben Smith became obsessed investigating this sweet pink website. Ben Smith did not bother to investigate all the many allegations against Barack Obama – he was too busy investigating us.
While at Politico the world discovered, via leaks, that Ben Smith was on the JournoLister listserve. The JournoListers were not just pundits but also “news reporters”. Ben Smith reported that while on JournoListers he did not find anything worth reporting. But indeed the JournoListers conspired to kill the Jeremiah Wright news story (you remember – “God Damn America”).
Ben Smith did not report there was an coordinated explicit effort by the JournoListers to defend Obama by calling Hillary Clinton supporters “racists”. This race-baiting tactic is already in play for 2012 against Republicans. This is what we wrote at the time of “God Damn America”:
“Ben Smith is either delusional or a liar. He says he never found any “good secrets” at JournoList nor was he troubled by the “groupthink”. He apparently found nothing “germane”. But the fact remains that a coordinated campaign to label Hillary Supporters and any opponent of Barack Obama as “racists” – by the Left wing of the journalism establishment! – is one hellava story – if Ben Smith had reported it at the time of the “bitter and clingy” Pennsylvania primary!
Ben Smith pretends JournoList was a silly collection of Drudge and Limbaugh haters and killers but the story is much more nefarious than the strawman Smith builds then knocks down. We corrected the not functioning link in the Ben Smith article which he claims as some sort of badge of honor for Politico because they were “the first publication to report on the list”. What Ben Smith fails to mention is that that “report on the list” came in 2009 well after the information would have been useful to the Hillary Campaign and the McCain/Palin campaign.”
Recently the Daily Caller exposed the obvious fact that Ben Smith was a sludge dumping operation for pro Obama organizations. Therefore we are not surprised that Ben Smith continues to be fed information by Obama’s campaign and has been called on to take down Marco Rubio or that Smith tries to inject “complications” into the Marco Rubio story.
Since age 13 Marco Rubio has been a Catholic and was “confirmed” at that age as a Catholic. That Rubio attended a Mormon church before he was a teenager hardly seems a story but we appreciate as much information about candidates and potential presidential/vice presidential candidates as possible. But does Ben Smith really think that the 8 year old Marco Rubio attending a Mormon church is really a problem for Rubio who has been a Catholic since age 13?
Betcha if Marco Rubio was in a church wherein “God Damn America” resounded from the pulpit on the Sunday after 9/11 the JournoListers would be in a frenzy to denounce those America haters.
To be fair to the JournoListers and Ben Smith in particular, they are the crew who thought that Obama living in Indonesia at age 10 was foreign policy experience. So maybe Ben Smith is not just being a running dog for the Obama campaign but instead really thinks that 8 year old Marco Rubio is The Omen that must be destroyed.
Speaking of dogs, let’s recall Andrew Sullivan sucking off Barack Obama. For those that still want to believe in the tin plate calf Obama, the promises Barack Obama made in 2007/2008 and the case made for his election by drug sniffing dogs like Andrew Sullivan, are the best way to demonstrate what an utter failure Obama is. This was the case Sullivan made for electing Barack Obama:
“At its best, the Obama candidacy is about ending a war—not so much the war in Iraq, which now has a momentum that will propel the occupation into the next decade—but the war within America that has prevailed since Vietnam and that shows dangerous signs of intensifying, a nonviolent civil war that has crippled America at the very time the world needs it most. It is a war about war—and about culture and about religion and about race. And in that war, Obama—and Obama alone—offers the possibility of a truce.”
By Sullivan’s and Obama’s own measure we can calculate the miserable failure that is Obama. There is no truce. There is only more war about culture, religion and race. Hey Andrew, we were right and you are still wrong.
And that face? That butt ugly face? Let’s quote some more from drug sniffing dog Andrew Sullivan as he masturbates to pictures of B.O.:
“What does he offer? First and foremost: his face. Think of it as the most effective potential re-branding of the United States since Reagan. Such a re-branding is not trivial—it’s central to an effective war strategy. The war on Islamist terror, after all, is two-pronged: a function of both hard power and soft power. We have seen the potential of hard power in removing the Taliban and Saddam Hussein. We have also seen its inherent weaknesses in Iraq, and its profound limitations in winning a long war against radical Islam. The next president has to create a sophisticated and supple blend of soft and hard power to isolate the enemy, to fight where necessary, but also to create an ideological template that works to the West’s advantage over the long haul. There is simply no other candidate with the potential of Obama to do this. Which is where his face comes in.
Consider this hypothetical. It’s November 2008. A young Pakistani Muslim is watching television and sees that this man—Barack Hussein Obama—is the new face of America. In one simple image, America’s soft power has been ratcheted up not a notch, but a logarithm. A brown-skinned man whose father was an African, who grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii, who attended a majority-Muslim school as a boy, is now the alleged enemy. If you wanted the crudest but most effective weapon against the demonization of America that fuels Islamist ideology, Obama’s face gets close. It proves them wrong about what America is in ways no words can.
Yup, according to Andrew Sullivan it was to be Barack Obama’s “face” that would make “them” love “us”. So how does that promise hold up? How are those young Muslim’s reacting to the “brown-skinned man whose father was an African, who grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii, who attended a majority-Muslim school as a boy”? Do they love us now? Do they really really love us?
The “young Muslims” are not exactly enchanted with Obama’s face. Fact is those “young Muslims” are burning in effigy “Black Dog Obama“. It turns out “young Muslims” don’t admire Obama’s face but rather believe Obama’s face is butt ugly.
Obama’s response to being called “Black Dog Obama” and the killing of two Americans? “Obama Apologizes For Koran Burning Incident In Afghanistan.” The “young Muslims” rejected Butt Ugly Obama’s apology.
It appears by the standards set by Barack Obama and Barack Obama fellators Obama is an abject failure. According to the Gallup Poll today, the majority of Americans agree Barack Obama is a failure.
Barack Obama is not the only failure (“Poll: 50% now say Obama doesn’t deserve reelection“). The JournoListers and fellow traveling fellators of Big Media are also losers. They placed their bets on a butt ugly face thinking it was the face of a prince. For all time “the face” argument will be there to show future generations of Americans how corrupt Big Media is and how Barack Obama bamboozled a nation.
If Ben Smith’s Buzzfeed had any integrity it would have included in it’s Marco Rubio at age 8 story the fact that Barack Obama attended a Muslim school at a later age. If Andrew Sullivan had any integrity he would….. Well now we are just being silly. Integrity and “Andrew Sullivan” don’t mix.
