Mark Steyn, the undocumented alien who often times fills in for El Rushbo eviscerates both the Community Organizer and the Liberal Lapdog Media in one fell swoop! (Wednesday's edition out early. The Gunny is on travel)
"Obamaism" was the Emperor’s new centrism: To a fool such as your average talk-radio host, His Majesty appears to be a man of minimal accomplishments other than self-promotion marinated in a radical faculty-lounge view of the world and the role of government. But, to a wise man such as your average presidential historian or New York Times columnist, he is the smartest guy ever to become president.

In part, this is a natural extension of an ever more conformist and unrepresentative establishment’s view of where "the center" is. On issues from abortion to climate change, a Times man or Hollywood activist or media professor’s notion of "centrism" is well to the left of where American opinion is. That’s one reason why a supposedly "center-right" nation has wound up regulated into sclerosis, drowning in debt and embarking on its last decade as the world’s leading economy. But in the case of Obama the chasm between soft, seductive, politico-media "centrism" and hard, grim reality is too big to bridge, and getting wider all the time.

You would think this might prompt some sober reflection from an American mainstream media dying in part because of its dreary ideological conformity. After all, a key reason why 53% voted for a man who was not, in Tina Brown’s word, "ready" is that Tina and all her pals assured us he was. Occidental, Columbia, Harvard Law, a little light community organizing, a couple of years time-serving in a state legislature: That’s what America’s elites regard as an impressive resume rather than a bleak indictment of contemporary notions of "accomplishment." Obama would not have withstood scrutiny in any society with a healthy, skeptical press. Yet, like the high-rolling Wall Street moneybags, they failed to do due diligence."

To the idiots who voted for The Obomination, you can NEVER say sorry enough and may the memory of what you useful idiots put into the White House haunt you for five eternities. (But the Gunny would settle for one)



  1. I disagree. The media DID due diligence. They diligently attacked anyone who dared to question Obama, and they diligently reported every single wild claim against Republicans.

  2. Steyn sure does have a great way with words.

    Let us not forget that the libs were in love with the idea of getting the first Black man in office, and never mind his empty resume'. The Independants got sucked into that as well especially since the GOP fielded a jag-off.

    I can't wait for January 20th 2013.
