I agree with this in it's entirety, so while I've grabbed some quotes, please read the complete post here. I've never encountered Tammy Bruce before, but I'm relieved I'm not the only one that comes away from any Obama speech wondering why everyone is so in awe of his abilities.
big pull quotes for me:
Funny, I don’t think I’m the only one who remembers Obama BSing and manipulating his way through the 2008 election, and I just saw it happen again tonight. And just like in 2007 and 2008 quite a number of conservatives thought the speech was just fabulous. It certainly is a stark reminder of how the Dumb Bastard got elected in the first place.
Upon hearing the awful news Saturday morning, within an hour–even before we knew the number of dead–Barack Obama’s gestapos moved in for the kill–the Kill of Palin and the Kill of Conservatives in this country. For 5 days Tea Party, conservatives and Sarah Palin were blamed for murder. I spent the weekend, as did so many others, not being allowed to grieve but having to listen to crass political smears and libel, while defending those falsely accused of horrific complicity.
So don’t wonder why I’m calling the charade tonight a charade. Despite all of us being faced with the ugliness of the liberal response, we also spent the last 5 days praying for the victims and being concerned for our nation. You will also see my concern in refusing to silently acquiesce or in faux praise for one of the most bizarre displays of manipulation of a tragedy I’ve ever seen.
I, for one, will continue to speak as clearly as possible when the Emperor is stark raving naked.
You and me, both.
Now, on to the next portion: T-shirts? a new slogan? really? It very nearly makes me sick to my stomach, and scares the hell out of me that we are approaching banana republic adoration of our leader. Others have talked about the use of symbols and the hagiography, etc. but to see the sheeple lining up and wearing the shirts and swaying along is frightening, people. When will the humongous portraits be hung on buildings?
