Desperation in Obama’s dishonest attacks on Romney’s record at Bain?

Had sketched out a post wondering if the intensity of Obama’s dishonest attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain were a sign of insecurity in the Democrat’s campaign, that perhaps they have polls showing Romney doing better among undecided voters or that their own support is weaker than it appears in more publicized surveys.

But, in his own inimical way, Glenn Reynolds,linking two posts detailing the Democrat’s dishonesty, offered an insight which nicely (and succinctly) paralleled my own: “It doesn’t seem to me that Obama’s doing especially well, but judging by the flailing and desperation we’re seeing from his campaign, it must seem to them that he’s doing worse than I think.

More on this anon.  Perhaps.

This is not the first time Katie Couric has posed a leading question to a Republican woman, a question which indicates the former CBS Anchor’s bias. But, this time, said woman challenged the journalist’s premise:

Well, now I get why Mitt Romney wants Condi as his running mate. This woman can stand up to media bias without losing her cool.

He’s one to talk

Obama: Romney, GOP ‘not serious’ about deficit

This from a guy who promised a “net spending cut“, but delivered a big spending explosion.

This chart, courtesy of Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, shows you Obama’s record of deficits.

Even Obama’s projected deficits exceed the highest deficit in a budget passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Republican president.

Where is GLAAD when media is used to demean a gay Republican?

On its web-page, GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) claims to “hold the media accountable for the words and images they produce. When media is used as a platform to defame and stereotype LGBT people, GLAAD takes action.”  Apparently this standard applies only to those who use media to defame and stereotype gay people of a certain political persuasion.

When individuals use media to defame gay Republicans, GLAAD takes no action.  Yesterday, when a BuzzFeed reporter said openly gay Republican Richard Grenell’s “tweets often appear to reveal insecurities about your own masculinity“, GLAAD did not call on the reporter to apologize.*

As Grenell told Breitbart’s John Nolte, “Groups like GLAAD are no longer effective because they stay silent when the left attacks gay conservatives.

GLAAD is not the only outfit to make light of the tweet.  Nolte reminds us that “BuzzFeed Politics’ Editor-In-Chief, Ben Smith (pictured), has only commented about his employee’s behavior on Twitter with jokes and dismissive comments.”  Perhaps, you might say that’s his style, to engage in such banter.

Nolte reminds us that when conservatives directed anti-gay attacks on Grenell, “BuzzFeed Politics found that troubling enough for a feature piece critical of Mitt Romney.”

And HRC, the outfit which blew a gasket when a Republican politician failed to speak out after her daughter used the word “faggot” on Facebook remains silent when a reporter suggests a gay Republican has insecurities about his masculinity.
