Now that the 2012 presidential election has begun, it seems less like an illuminating debate between two very different visions of America and more like a series of contrived, Lame Stream Media-driven “controversies” designed to appeal to specific constituencies that Barack Obama needs to reel in to insure his re-election.
First, there was the ridiculously transparent use of liberal activist plant Sandra Fluke to gin up a phony issue about “affordable contraception.” Then, seemingly on cue, exit Sandra, stage left, and bring on the Trayvon Martin case, which should be a matter for local law enforcement and criminal justice, giving Barack Obama the opportunity to send a coded message to the Al Sharpton wing of the democrat party; that is, “I’m with ya, Bro.” Now, our current Flavor of the Week, the “firestorm” set off by one of the Obamas’ BFF’s, frequent White House visitor (and probable Fluke media adviser) Hilary Rosen, when she said last Wednesday on CNN that Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life, despite raising five boys and serving as First Lady of Massachusetts.
Is it just a coincidence that the news cycle lurches from “crisis” and “controversy” over issues that serve to distract us from the real issue affecting every American’s life, the stagnant economy and the abysmal failures of Barack Obama? We’ll ask our guest Ann Kane of the Potter Williams Report, who argues in a recent American Thinker piece that the Obama campaign is not upset by the Hilary Rosen “gaffe.” On the contrary, it has them delighted. Of course, Ms. Rosen appears to have joined the growing number of former friends now under the Obama bus. She may soon be joined by a certain high-profile donor/”comedian.”
