Left’s Latest Attempt to Smear Scott Walker Blows up in Their Faces

February 28, 2015

Liberal fear of Scott Walker and their attempts to smear him are reaching comedic levels.

The latest manufactured outrage was that Scott Walker wanted the University of Wisconsin to stop reporting rapes or something. Of course, the story was completely wrong.

The feminist site Jezebel has major egg on its face over this.

The Daily Beast has published a full retraction.

I’ll leave you with this thought from Jim Treacher…

It was Student Government Week at College Insurrection.

It’s amazing what can disqualify someone from serving in student government these days.

It’s pretty clear that academia fears Scott Walker.

What is going on at Wesleyan?

And Kent State?

BDS update.

A lesson for BDS activists.

All leftism, all the time.

Obama Claims He Vetoed Keystone Because Congress Overstepped Its Bounds

February 24, 2015

The same president who issues executive orders (something he said he wouldn’t do) like he was handing out autographs at a SOTU address has finally found a form of government overreach he just can’t abide.

Obama: Keystone pipeline bill ‘has earned my veto’

President Obama vetoed a bill Tuesday that would have approved the Keystone XL pipeline, making good on a threat to reject a proposal embraced by Republicans as a jobs measure but opposed by environmentalists as contributing to climate change.

“The presidential power to veto legislation is one I take seriously,” Obama said in his veto message to the Senate. “But I also take seriously my responsibility to the American people. And because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest — including our security, safety, and environment — it has earned my veto.”

It was only the third veto of his presidency, but likely to be the first in a series of vetoes as he parries a Republican-controlled Congress in the last two years of his presidency.

Read more on this at Hot Air.

Of course, Obama’s reasons for the veto are total BS. He vetoed it because he’s beholden to environmental activists in the Democratic party’s base.

Also, on a more cynical note, what if Keystone went through and created tens of thousands of jobs? He can’t give the Republicans a win like that.

I can’t wait for the media to call Obama an obstructionist.

That’ll happen any day now, I’m sure.

Brutal New Ad Uses Elizabeth Warren’s Words Against Hillary Clinton

Elizabeth Warren is fond of saying the game is rigged.

When it comes to foreign government donations to the Clinton Foundation, she has a point.

Obama Derangement Syndrome VS. Bush Derangement Syndrome

February 23, 2015

There’s no comparison.

Ezra Klein thinks it’s reasonable to compare Obama Derangement Syndrome to Bush Derangement Syndrome. He’s wrong. In fact, the only thing he gets right in his entire column is the origin of the term Bush Derangement Syndrome…

In 2003, the conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer diagnosed a new affliction in some of George W. Bush’s fiercest critics. He described the condition as “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.” He called it Bush Derangement Syndrome.

He goes on…

Bush Derangement Syndrome was, in other words, a function of 9/11 and the Iraq War: it was an effort, often misguided, to explain how the worst terrorist attack in American history happened, and why the most puzzling war in American history was launched.

Obama Derangement Syndrome is different. It isn’t so much paranoia about President Obama’s policies as it is paranoia about the man himself — that he is, in some fundamental way, different, foreign, untrustworthy, even traitorous.

That’s a straight up lie. The exact opposite is true. Bush Derangement Syndrome was all about hatred of the man himself. Most liberals still don’t even accept Bush’s 2000 win as legitimate. Liberals may dislike George W. Bush’s policies but they hate the man and many of them have accused Bush of being a traitor.

Here’s more…

What’s odd is that it is attached to a president whose presidency has been, in almost every respect, conventionally liberal. Bush Derangement Syndrome sought extraordinary explanations for extraordinary events; Obama Derangement Syndrome seeks extraordinary explanations for an ordinary presidency.

Obama’s presidency is not conventional in any way. No president before him has accrued so much debt. No president before Obama has championed legislation that directly impacts the American economy like Obamacare.

No president before Obama, with Nixon as a tepid example, has been so mired in corruption, the NSA, the IRS and Benghazi to name just a few which brings me to my final point.

Obama has many critics but for the most part he has the media, Hollywood and academia on his side. Bush had none of those. There is no comparison between the two.

In 2006, a movie called Death of a President fantasized about the assassination of Bush.

The film was even reviewed by the Washington Post, for which Ezra Klein used to work…

Bush ‘Assassination’ Film Makes Waves Across the Pond

Nearly every British newspaper on Friday carried photos of the “assassination” of President Bush — or, rather, the eerily realistic depiction of it from a new documentary-style television film that is causing an uproar in Britain.

The film, “Death of a President,” has been alternatively derided as a tasteless publicity grab and defended as a serious look at a plausible event that could have dramatic ramifications for the world.

Obama supporters can whine all they want.

Conservative criticism of Obama will never reach their unhinged level of hatred for Bush.

Liberals in Media Circle The Wagons Around Obama Over Rudy Giuliani

February 21, 2015

Rudy Giuliani used to be “America’s Mayor” but that was before he pointed out that the emperor has no clothes.

Ever since Giuliani questioned Obama’s love of America, a perfectly reasonable question in light of Obama’s own words and deeds, the liberal media has made Giuliani’s destruction their number one priority.

And because smart progressives never let a good crisis go to waste, they’re using their manufactured outrage to attack Scott Walker and other Republican hopefuls.
