Editorial: War Paint and Soft Feathers

So Tuesday Barack Obama flaunted his true nature.

I am the war hawk you have been waiting for

It was all War Paint and Soft Feathers. With a huge helping of George W. Bush to top things off. Want to get the people on your side? Barack belives the easiest way is to scare them to death.

He called out 9-1-1 so often, he began to sound like he was in a bingo hall.

And the threats, the unknown threats, that are there, waiting, that he's going to save us from, that he is saving us from, Big Daddy.

What a load of s**t.

The more he tried to scare America to death, the more obvious it became he had nothing left to offer.

Barack's decided to escalate the Afghanistan War.

And the Cult of St. Barack responded how?

Tom-Tom Hayden declared he might just stop shaving his legs for Barack or at least scrape off a bumper sticker. And that was among the braver moves last week. The Cult of Saint Barack continued to look the other way. As Ava and C.I. document today, it's a huge difference from the way the left treated George W. Bush's surge.

It's not as if there's any big difference between the two 'plans' or, for that matter, the two men. And like Bush, Barry loves to play loose with the truth. Cedric's "Barry's boo-boos" and Wally's "THIS JUST IN! BARRY BOMBS!" attempted to fact check Barry O and The Flapping Gums and quickly came up with two promises broken. 1) Last, last war suppemental, Barry swore April 9, 2009. Unlike George W. Bush, he wouldn't do this piecemeal stuff, he'd get the full cost and be open about it. This was his last war supplemental. Until now, of course. 2) He was going to end the Afghanistan War just like he closed Guantanamo. But he didn't close Guantanamo.

He didn't do anything.

He's the do-nothing president.

And he's about to leave the country. AGAIN.

We were asking where the ehtics were repeatedly when a friend who is a TV director asked if we'd heard about the new poll?

He may be talking about the Harvard poll. He wasn't sure. He half-watches TV which leads to interesting observations. That's not snark. By not fully paying attention, he usually grasps the message without the risk of indoctrination.

So what's the message?

Only the uneducated don't support Barack.

"It's just like they did with the Iraq War where they tried to make people think they were stupid if they didn't support the war," he explained. (He watches CNN, for those wondering.)

So it's more and more distraction. Don't be surprised if they repeat the lie about Barack getting more death threats than any president EVAAAAAR!

As C.I. reported on Thursday, that's a lie.

It was the Committee on Homeland Security hearing and US House Rep Eleanor Holmes Norton was repeating that claim when the Director of the Secret Service Mark J. Sullivan explained to her that was false.

How many times have you heard that lie and from how many 'trusted' 'voices'?

It's all about manufacturing consent and, right or left, big or small, nearly everyone's taking part. Independent media died a slow and agonizing death.
