Blamer in Chief Obama
Obama Email to Supporters: If I Lose, It’s Your Fault
by Ben Shapiro 26 Aug 2012
Today, President Obama sent out a campaign email essentially blaming his supporters if he loses. See, he’s supposedly being outspent. And because he’s supposedly being outspent, he’s losing. And he can’t spend more money unless his supporters fork it over.
This is the campaign version of Obama’s entire economic argument: he can’t fix the economy unless he spends more money. And unless we give him more money, he can’t spend it. So if the economy fails, it’s our fault.
Here’s the perverse logic:
Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there.
But the folks asking me about this don’t want an explanation — they want to know what I’m going to do about it.
And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you ….
We’re losing this air war right now.
I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen.
Perhaps the most laughable aspect of this latest desperate missive is Obama’s assertion that he doesn’t have “as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008.” He’s done nothing but campaign since the beginning of the year. From January to mid-June, Obama held more than 160 fundraisers. During that same period in 2004, President George W. Bush had held just 79 fundraisers.
Here’s the sad fact for Obama: nobody’s enamored with him anymore. His spendthrift ways haven’t just bankrupted the country – they’ve bankrupted his campaign. And he still blames everyone else.
Methinks that unless Obama’s tenure in the WH was a mega FAIL, he could just run on his record. /snark
I’m sure he would spend millions to seal his record as President if he could, but he can’t so he’s all wee wee’d up and blaming everyone else.
It burns my oatmeal every time I hear a Democrat proclaim their pro-women creds. We remember all too vividly their attacks on women in general and two women in particular: Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin.
And we will never forget. I sincerely believe the primary reason fauxgressive boiz support women’s reproductive rights, specifically abortion, is because they would be involved and held responsible for their unplanned progeny. The secondary reason is to win support for Teh Once. If they actually supported women they would be campaigning for the ERA; equal pay for women, equal access to all levels of power and governance, etc.
Cinie had the best list, including links, that I’ve read listing the vile attacks on women by Democrats in 2008. I’m unable to provide Cinie’s list because my computer bit the dust and I haven’t been able to replace it yet. But I will provide the following:
wbboei (again), recently listed some of the things Matthews spewed about Hillary:
“… what this same Obama surrogate said about Hillary in the 2008 campaign:
“I hate her. I hate her. All that she stands for.“ “She Devil“ • “Nurse Ratched•“ “Madame Defarge•“ “Witchy•“ “Anti-male•“ “[U]ppity•“ “She’s going to tell us what to •do.“ “Her scolding manner in terms of her public speaking•“ “[L]et’s talk about the troops …Will they take the orders?•“ [D]oesn’t she know she looks like a fraud?•“ Look at those eyes. Look at the cold eyes that she’s giving him. Look at that cold look.“ • [L]ike a strip-teaser saying she’s flattered by the all the attention On Sen. Clinton’s endorsers: “•“castratos in the eunuch chorus•“ “Let me tell you how short Hillary’s leash is. “•“ Is she a convincing mom? On Sen. Clinton’s laugh: “•“ What do you make of the cackle?•“ [S]he’s clapping, like she’s Chinese. I know the Chinese clap at each other, but what is she clapping at? I mean, it’s like one of these wind-up things. “•“ [S]he was giving a campaign barn-burner speech, which is harder to give for a woman; it can grate on some men when they listen to it — fingernails on a blackboard, perhaps.•“ “Is there, out there in the country or out in the Atlantic Ocean, some gigantic monster — big, green, horny-headed, all kinds of horns coming out, big, aggressive monster of anti-Hillaryism that hasn’t shown itself: it’s based upon gender …•“ “[B]eing surrounded by women, does that make a case for commander in chief — or does it make a case against it?•“ “Is she hemmed in by the fact that she’s a woman and can’t admit a mistake, or else the Republicans will say, ‘Oh, that’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind,’ or ‘another fickle woman’? Is her gender a problem in her ability to change her mind?•“ “[T]he reason she’s a U.S. senator, the reason she’s a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around.•“ “She may have gotten The Des Moines Register’s endorsement the other day, thanks to her husband’s lobbying with its female editors.”
… and that was just Matthews!
I am reading that sexist/misogynist Chris Tingles is still depending on accusations of “raaaaacism” to shut down any and all criticisms of his mancrush. I can’t help but wonder if Matthews and fauxgressives voted for Jesse Jackson, Shirley Chisholm, or Al Sharpton when each of them campaigned for the office of the Presidency. And why didnt they vote Green since the Green presidential nominee was black, and a woman, and her running mate was a woman of color.
After all, nothing else mattered but to elect an African American president in order to prove they/we weren’t raaaaacist. It didnt occur to them that they could “prove” they werent racist nor sexist with a single vote. Or it did occur to them but it just didnt matter.
I will point out that Jackson, Chisholm, and Sharpton are actually African-Americans, as we in the US understand and use the term, while Obama is actually Kenyan-American, absent a lineage tracing back to the 80 year period of slavery in the US.
Oh! and by the way:
Thanks to Judicial Watch, we no longer have to wonder whether or not the White House was directly and repeatedly involved in pressing the CIA and Department of Defense to give insider, classified details about the mission to kill Bin Laden
Meanwhile…some fresh air…
