LADY OR TIGER?
my, oh my! The mean stream media is going catatonic -- Hillary "misspoke
on Bosnia". The sky is falling! The sky is falling.
It endlessly replays the scene in Bosnia while ignoring the fact that she
immediately responded that she misspoke.
But not all reporters
are lemmings. Craig Crawford thinks for himself, he wrote: "Although
seemingly embarrassing for her, this episode did serve to provoke repeated
airings of video showing Clinton on her trip to Bosnia 12 years ago looking
more like a Commander in Chief than like a First Lady." http://blogs.cqpolitics.com/trailmix/
Where was the
media's truth squad when BO lied about hearing his pastor say the inflammatory
statements in his church? Remember
those racists' rants from BO's mentor, Wright, for 20 years? Remember the
sermons that they were forced to report on because Bloggers and Utubers
made the stink big enough so they had to notice?
Must be they were
just too overcome with their rapture and adoration for BO to notice that
his alibis and excuses oration was as divisive as it was misleading. It
was a stunning example of, "the [white] Devil made me do it"
passing the blame ploy. How they raved on, calling it "worthy of Lincoln"
and other superfluous accolades, but they neglected to check out http://americanrhetoric.com.
Or perhaps they
didn't want us to know that among the 100 greatest speeches notably by
MLK, Jesse Jackson and other civil rights leaders was the historic speech
given by President Lyndon B Johnson pleading to Congress and the Nation
to pass the historic civil rights bill. LBJ quoted MLK "We Shall Overcome
" and it is titled under this name. There also, among
the 100 greatest speeches was First Lady, Hillary
Clinton's historic challenge in China
to recognize women's rights as human rights.
And when it comes
to outright lies, the media mavens turn a deaf ear to the many times BO
and his campaign have twisted words and facts as they accuse every person
who supports HRC of playing the race card.
How Obama played
the race card and blamed Hillary Clinton "A review of what actually
happened shows that the charges that the Clintons played the 'race card'
were not simply false but deliberately manufactured by the Obama camp and
trumpeted by a credulous and/or compliant press corps in order to strip
away her once formidable majority among black voters and to outrage affluent,
college-educated white liberals as well as college students." http://www.tnr.com/politics/story.html?id=aa0cd21b-0ff2-4329-88a1-69c6c268b304
It has been BO's
modus operendi to pretend he is above the fray while his supporters plant
the rumors and do the dirty work. He wants to appear to be pure, precious
and unsullied, and has done that, despite his many lies and disinformation,
with the loving help of many in the media.
To paraphrase Bush,
BO could say to the media, "Some call you the free press but I call
you my base."
In Frank Stockton's
short story there were two doors; behind one is the Lady and behind the
other is the Tiger. The doors are metaphorical in this Dem Primary saga.
Here the voters have a choice and they are beginning to turn away from
It may come down
to which door the Super Delegates will open. Will they choose the one hiding
a tough fighter for human rights or the one hiding the race baiter who
disenfranchised the voters of Florida and Michigan? Lady or Tiger?
The Lady is "typical"
-- a stereotype -- pouting and petulant and pedantic. The precious one
that our media covers up, protects and worships. He is crafty, untruthful,
self-aggrandizing and phony; blocking votes in two states because he knows
he cannot win them shows he will do anything to win.
The Tiger is strong,
dependable, experienced and a fighter with guts and ability that has inspired
so many of us. Hillary Rodham Clinton will truly be a Tiger for us in the
