Me at Q&O just now, in reax to their weekly podcast
Excellent show, guys, as always.
But I wonder a little at one topic… the reason the real story on Obama hasn’t been told by the press…
I wonder, frankly, if a majority of, shall we say “less than politically attached” Americans, would think that such reporting was fantastic and beyond the pale. So fantastic in fact that they wouldn’t believe it… Particularly after years of the mainstream press telling them what a great guy Obama was, and what great things he was doing, how he was lowering the ocean levels etc..
I suppose that such a dramatic turnaround from the hype to the lowdown truth of the matter would strain credulity in such people’s minds. And who could blame them?
Then too, it has become clear to me within the last few months that the supposed mainstream press is finding itself increasingly challenged playing the role of Obama cheerleader. This, particularly, given some of the stuff that has been coming out lately, such as fast and furious, Benghazi, and so on. The quandary for the press at this point is how to begin telling the truth again, without being called a liar either then, or now. It becomes an issue of credibility which of course is needed to maintain their cushy jobs. (grin)
At the same time, the issue for us, as in, we Americans, is do the politically unattached as I’ve described them believe the truth when it’s finally offered up to them from Obama’s former cheerleaders? History would seem to suggest that they will not. After all, as Mark Twain observed, it’s a lot easier to fool someone that it is to convince them that they’ve been fooled.
It’s my view that the truth of the matter will not fully be told, much less absorbed by those unattached until such time as Obama is out of office. If ever. In any event, the whole truth of this thing will never come out before the next election. The press certainly doesn’t have the stones for it, and I have my doubts that Romney/ Ryan does, either.
Could be wrong about that, but at the moment, I doubt it.
