Did Washington Post ever look for outlandish/incorrect predictions and quotes from Barack Obama’s past?

Apologies for the slow blogging.  Am spending time with some good Mormon friends in Utah.  And, no, they’re not trying to “cure” me.  They know I’m gay and have made me very welcome in their home, even allowing me to adopt their children as my niece as nephews.  Indeed, they have made me feel far more welcome than have many gay liberals upon learning I’m a conservative.

Anyway, as you can probably guess, I have much to say on the retirement of the unhappy Barney Frank.  The long and the short of it is that it is a very good thing for gay Americans.  We will no longer have this mean-spirited embarrassment as the most prominent gay politician in the country.  If we had a less biased media, reporters would note how frequently the Massachusetts Democrats has been wrong and journalists would ask him tough questions.  He has shown an obliviousness to the reality of the marketplace and the record of the Reagan era.  And has demonstrated a refusal to admit wrong and an arrogance about his critics.

He doesn’t seem to realize that this nation enjoyed an economic boom in the 1990s in no small measure to Senate Republicans’ success in filibustering the Clinton “stimulus” in 1993 and Bill Clinton’s compromises with such congressional Republicans as Newt Gingrich in the mid-1990s.

That said, I post this piece having just chanced upon this post on Drudge:

For those unfamiliar,” writes Noel Sheppard in posting this,

Blake writes for the Post’s The Fix political blog, hence the moniker “Fix Aaron.”

What would one expect from a newspaper that only five months ago called for readers to sift through former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s email messages?

It therefore isn’t at all surprising they’d be looking for dirt on the current Republican presidential frontrunner.

Wonder if Mr. Blake or any of his Washington Post colleagues went looking for dirt on the Democratic presidential frontrunner in the 2008 campaign.

SOMEWHAT RELATED:  Wonder if anybody at Mr. Blake’s paper is tweeting for help in sifting through the recent White House Visitor Log Document Dump.



  1. Not surprised, really. Personal attacks are pretty much all Obama and his cult have got. The personal attacks probably won’t hurt Gingrich with the Republican base, but they will drive away mushy “moderate” voters who only get their news from the MFM.

    It strikes me that Gingrich really is some of the things Obama only pretends to be. Gingrich is a true intellectual, a professor with a deep understanding of his subject matter, History. Obama was, what, a part-time lecturer who can barely form a sentence without a Teleprompter? Gingrich proposes innovative, post-partisan solutions to our national challenges. Obama has revealed himself to be nothing but a partisan-hack pushing warmed-over sixties0era bureaucratic socialism.

  2. Reading a column by one of the Pakistan liberal intelligentsia, even he ridicules the intelligence of Republicans with references to Herman Cain’s wish to speak “Cuban” ,etc. Not a word about BO’s “57 states” or the “Austrian language”, etc. Typical.

  3. ??? BDB – even allowing me to adopt their children as my niece as nephews.

    My Turkey Holiday was spent in the Big Sky Country with Friends and Family in the Southern Counties of Gallatin, Park, Sweetgrass, Stillwater, Carbon and Yellowstone. So much fun

    Got to hang with many family folk and friends who are right of center and their big gripe with Newt is that he is just ‘a shifty insider’ with his third wife being a control junkie. . . Most of them expressed a great desire for the Cain Train – – aside from his inability to make good choices in keeping his fidelity and honoring his wife.

    Many are still spouting off that Romney is the only viable choice to get someone in the White House.

    Most of the women folk are turned off by the infidelities of Cain and Newt. As one person said, ‘if they can’t be loyal and stay on track with their spouse and maintain respect for the most important person in their life. . .how should we expect them to be honorable in the White House.’

    A wonderful man (an octogenarian) who has great praise for the big R camp (and absolutely adores me and my partner) stated his disgust with the folk inside the beltway and the disregard they have for the country ‘as they refused to work with Obama to get the country back on track.’
    ‘The Republican Party put themselves ahead of the needs of the country and America.’

  4. It would be nice if WaPo and the rest of the MFM could gin up some interest and start using the same fine tooth comb they used for Sarah Palin’s trash to go through the WH visitor log records released on Black Friday. You know, those same records that the WH has been fighting tooth and nail against releasing. Apparently, Rachel Maddow has been there five times, four to see the president personally. Convicted felon, Robert Creamer has been there almost 60 times.

  5. Well, now, what are we to make of moral relativism v morality?

    The faithful, generally speaking, know the difference between right and wrong and they hold each other accountable. One main reason for this is the understanding that Christ died for our sins and showed us the way for redemption.

    The liberals, generally speaking, like to litigate right from wrong and firmly believe there is a huge swath of territory separating the two (right and wrong) from final judgment. That area between right and wrong is the seat of moral relativity. That is where they let the devil plead his case and a prickly old spinster trussed up in angel robes hiss her opinion. The verdict is usually to give the devil his due and proclaim “whatever” and move on. (See: Teddy Kennedy, Bill Clinton, John Edwards, et. al.)

    The problem with being a person of faith who is caught up in misdeeds is that you have all of the liberals attacking you for your misdeeds and piling the charge of hypocrisy on top because you hold yourself to a set of higher standards. Furthermore, you are a loser because you also failed yourself. The other faithful may generally agree and they have no defense to offer, because they understand sin and redemption. The liberals don’t need sin and redemption. They have politics, innuendo, smears and a polished talent for fighting dirty.

    Liberals do not understand what people are talking about when they reject the notion that the ends justify the means. To liberals, the ends are the raw power of the majority and you use whatever means possible to attain it.

    So, the Washington Post chums for sludge to print against Republican candidates for no other purpose than to destroy their credentials as people who hold to higher standards than Democrats and journalists. (But I repeat myself.)
