Before Hurricane Sandy made landfall, the tv geniuses who analyze and enlighten us speculated about the impact that the storm would have on the One’s re-election prospects. Would he benefit from looking “presidential?” Would Gov. Romney “strike the right tone” in the aftermath?
I’m not sure whether it will help or hurt either candidate, but I know one group who should be breathing a sigh of relief is the national media. They know that every day more Americans catch on to their role in Obama’s 2008 con game. The genuine article, the cold, calculating, crypto-Communist community organizer is a far cry from the pragmatic, pro-active, post-racial problem solver that they presented as this rising star “Barack Obama.” Still, they hoped that they could keep up the con for 8 or 9 more days. Then, as we heard on last Sunday’s show, Denver reporter Kyle Clark asked Barack Obama some very embarrassing questions about what happened in Benghazi on 9/11/12; specifically, whether the 4 murdered Americans were denied help during the attack, and whether it’s fair to tell Americans we have to wait for the results of an investigation that will completed after the election.
Here’s the non-answer, and the followup from the dogged reporter:
Then over the weekend, Charles Woods, father of murdered Navy Seal, Tyrone Woods, began to speak out about his son’s death. (video in link)
Then came Sandy, giving those unofficial members of the Obama campaign, sometimes called the “national media,” an opportunity to shout questions at Mitt Romney about how he dares to support the concept of federalism contained in our Constitution, or to hold the foolish belief that the federal government isn’t the answer to every problem.
This sort of predictable charade will go on a couple of more days, but the Benghazi questions are not going away, and Obama can only do so many stand ups in Red Cross offices before people start realizing that the only reason they can watch endless footage of the misery and destruction wrought by the storm is that they don’t have jobs.
The suffering people on the East Coast have been in my prayers, and so has our country. I remain confident that next week our long national nightmare will begin to end, notwithstanding the best efforts of the Lame Stream Media.
