If you sleep under a rock, you missed the final question at President Obama's health care newser Wednesday night.
See if for yourself here:
Well, turns out, the question was a plant, and if you're as shocked as I was that the President of the United States would address a local police issue on something he had NO KNOWLEDGE about, you're not alone.
So, after a day of fallout, turns out that pretty much everyone who was there and who is associated with the arresting officer stands by him, and not the Harvard professor and Friend of Barack. This officer was just doing his job, trying to defuse the situation, and this hothead decided to lay into him. Little surprise that a professor of African American studies and a purveyor of the "Blacks are victims" meme, would immediately jump to calling this profiling (although the officer was called to the scene because the guy was breaking into his own house - the facts are not in dispute here, and Grant was arrested for Disorderly Conduct, not B&E).
That the President, with little knowledge of the facts, would take time in his televised press conference, to tout this same pack of lies, should put the lie to anyone who had real thoughts that Barack Obama was some sort of transcendent racial figure. He's a race baiter, just like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and this had no place in national politics, from a sitting president.
Obama is acting too much like the junior senator from Illinois still, and with his approval ratings continuing their plummet, it won't be long until he's at Bushian levels of approval and Democrats are distancing themselves from him.
It's not too late for him to grab a lifeline that truly stupid Republicans are likely to throw him, probably giving him some sort of "bipartisan" victory on health care, and restoring some of the luster to his presidency. I hope not. I hope the GOP can sense the blood in the water. This presidency, built on the "Cult of Obama" is sinking into the gooey tar pit that is the Pelosi-Reid agenda.
It is said that in politics, when your opponent is committing suicide, the best thing for the opposition to do is to sit and watch.
As for me, I believe I will do that, with a cold beer in my hand.
A caution to Conservatives: Bill Clinton came back. Liberalism came back. We must remain ever vigilant, as there is much work to be done and we can never, ever give up.
