Obama governing/campaign strategy in a nutshell

This Glenn Reynolds link pretty much sums it up:

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: White House ‘lied’ on Libya because they had ‘the media in their pocket.’

They depend the legacy media to cover for their incompetence



  1. “They depend the legacy media to cover for their incompetence”

    I agree but I think even that kind of understates it. The Obama Administration can count on the MSM to cover for their incompetence but most of the time that expectation includes the MSM systematically peddling their dishonest cover stories without any skepticism or verification of the White House-approved narrative. The exception to that is when the cover up is executed with such bungling incompetence that no one except Daily Kos commenters believe it.

    Since that’s the situation with Benghazi, the White House has alerted the MSM that they need the services they offer under the more expensive “Premium Package”: publishing NEW stories to prop up the White House’s original bullsh*t narrative, supported exclusively by hearsay coming from random, dubious and/or anonymous sources. Of course, had the White House executed a more credible, consistent narrative to cover up what happened in Benghazi, NONE of these “investigative” pieces ever would have been pursued or written. They are being thrown together and published SOLELY because Obama’s campaign is in trouble and he needs the MSM’s help in advance of the foreign policy debate. The LA Times piece in particular was RIDICULOUS. Left-wing journalists are the most vile, despicable people in America–barely one notch above child rapists and murderers.

  2. Pretty much spot on.

    There is no way Bush or any GOP administration would get by with half of what Obama has done.

    Shoot I honestly think a democratic president not named Obama wouldn’t have gotten the free ride from the media that Obama has.

    I do suspect that if the media does manage to win this election for Obama, they will likely start to turn on him, because 8 years of carrying his water doesn’t seem to be likely.

  3. I agree with the others. I look at this from the outside of the USA. George Bush never got away with anything. In fact the media continues to lie about those chemical weapons that did in fact exist in Iraq (but were taken across the border into Syria).

    The LSM has been covering Duh Won’s butt. However, the lies about what happened in Benghazi is a bridge too far.

  4. Obama so far has a 2 point plan:

    1. Raise taxes.

    2. Get flexible with Vladimir.
