Distracting voters from Obama’s record

Don Surber was on a roll this past weekend. Glenn linked his must-read post on the videos linking Barack Obama to radical law professor Derrick Bell:

This video will not bring down President Obama. His sorry record of no accomplishments will. We cannot afford to live in 2008 and mope about Obama not being vetted. The job before us is to show that the last 3+ years have sucked and 4 more years of Obama — a red-blooded, true Christian American who was born in Hawaii — will suck even harder.

While over at Surber’s site, I caught up on some of his recent posts, including this critique of Rick Santorum’s organization, a piece on the record level of polar ice, an alert to an Obama campaign attack on Sarah Palin, and the video included at the end of this post.

And he post the chart “Obama used to sell the $787 billion stimulus” contrasting the unemployment rate projected when he put forward the nearly $800 billion program with the latest figures.  Not only is the unemployment rate 2.3% higher than the administration forecast, but it’s even higher than the level expected “without” the “recovery plan.”

He contends the Palin ad shows that the president runs “on diversion” that the Democrat “is running for re-election as a troll.”  Do hope my fellow Republicans follow the lead of another conservative blogger, Jim Hoft and focus on another Democratic attempt at diversion, illegal robocalls targeting Republican Congressmen who just happen to be on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) hit list.

If the Democrats are so confident of victory this November, how come they keep trying to distract voters?



  1. Yes, Obama’s record should be enough to ensure that he doesn’t get re-elected. However, he needs to be vetted. Even if nothing significant turns up from his past (which has already happened, in my opinion, well before the video with Derrick Bell was released), it is just something that should have happened as part of the process, but didn’t. The people doing the vetting should be careful not to distract from the issues, which are, of course, important, but many people are already familiar with Obama’s dismal record, so just reporting that will not make much of a difference, in my opinion (unless it is more influential among non-conservatives than I realize).

    In addition, because the obsequious media will relentlessly push their ficticious narrative to ensure Obama’s victory, every little thing helps. I said his record should be enough, but it might not be. Again, it is important that his vetting is done in a manner that does not distract from the important issues, and that if they accuse Obama of anything that there is hard proof to back their claims up.

  2. I hope ILC takes Sean hannity to task for besmirching the name of a man who recently died, when he could have done do when he was alive, as he called me out on something similar recently. The video was available in 2008. This is not done big reveal by breibart. And hannity the fix news coward didn’t have the balls to debate the scholar when he was alive.
