So when does the media put Biden’s qualification to be President on trial?
Policy understanding? (mystery)
Someone whose finger we want on the button? Three letters, N.O.
When assessing a Republican vice-presidential nominee? Fitness to be president is the first and necessary qualification.
If Biden were the Republican vice-presidential nominee? Media outrage and indignation at the poor judgment of the presidential nominee, which would call into question the presidential nominee’s fitness for office.
Since Biden is the Democratic vice-presidential nominee? Why hasn’t Romney released more tax returns.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I’d like to know when the media will finally vet the President as it should have before the 2008 election.
Never. You are never going to see Barack Hussein Obama (or whatever his name is) be vetted by the recognized media.
Furthermore, if something should happen to him where he forfeits his life, he’ll be granted sainthood faster than two rabbits breeding on your front lawn. The lines will be five miles long to view his embalmed body and the wailing will last for months, if not years.
What would be interesting is to find out, after he leaves office, that a man called Barack Hussein Obama never existed in the first place. The liberals would still eulogize him though, IMHO.
Exactly right. Monuments would be springing out of the soil before the body was cold.
When he switches political party!
President Obama spent 20+ years worshiping at Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC). TUCC’s fundamental belief system is founded upon “Black Liberation Theology” (BLT) created in the 1960s by Dr. James Cone – who was mentor to Reverend Wright, Obama’s mentor. When asked in an interview, Cone stated that TUCC best exemplified BLT. Regarding BLT, Cone said (among other similar things):
“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.”
A reasonable question that was never asked of Obama by the primary media or apparently the Democrat party, is why, given the anti-white (and anti any race but that of black Africa) orientation of TUCC, Barack Obama chose TUCC in the first place, and then why he chose to remain there for so long.
My personal opinion is that membership at TUCC allowed Obama to exercise his right to worship as he felt best suited his values and beliefs and offered him the opportunity to gain some acceptance and gravitas within the black community of Chicago.
The media that was supposed to protect Americans from an oppressive, shadowy, corrupt government aided in the election of a person who never should have made it past the first stage of the selection process of even the heavily minority-biased Democrat party.
Just as we now know more about JFK’s philandering and less than stellar moral character and leadership, the truth will out for Obama and his cadre of conniving enablers (both in and out of the media).
The suspicions of his college transcripts, enrollment forms and fictional memoirs will stand as real and revealed. As we learn about the lies, damned lies and fabrications that were used to market this shady snake oil salesman into the most important job in the free world we will feel varying degrees of anger, shame and fear that such a crime could have been perpetrated against us.
He’s setting race relations back by decades, along with fiscal freedom for millions of Americans. Never has one man been able to hurt so many good people in America, whilst all the while complaining about how unfairly he’s been treated and blaming his predecessor.
It won’t happen soon enough, but history will not be kind to Barack Hussein Obama.
Some funny stuff here Professor. And sadly (for us) it is what we are “living” in America. Who would of thought this was possible? Here’s to better days ahead for all of us… and I do believe the change is coming. Thank you Professor Jacobson for all you do. You are making a difference and giving us a voice. We the people actually do have the power, thank goodness!
If the liberals didn’t control 100% of the MSM (or more appropriately, LSM — Lame Stream Media), we wouldn’t have this problem.
Decades of spineless Republican “leaders” enabled the transformation of the media into an unassailable Leftist propaganda fortress. Our chickenhearted “leaders” participate as “our own” are defamed and ruined, and savagely go after anyone who fights back.
It all comes down to media control. The Left has it, we don’t. As one Democrat crowed, it gives them 15 to 20 points. Without LSM propaganda, the Democrats would be just another kook-fringe pseudo-party trying desperately to be relevant.
So, thanks a lot, “Greatest Gen” and “Boomer” Republicans. Thanks a million. Really.
“Thanks a lot.” That’s it? Well, what in the heck are you doing to change this? Complainers and blamers are a dime a dozen. You and our president have much in common. You at least have the freedom to dig your own hole. Don’t build mine.
I’ve done a great deal. And some of it has cost me dearly.
And it’s all been IN SPITE of the “Greatest Generation” and Boomer weaklings running the show.
We are on the same side. We all know the huge disadvantages conservatives face. We were asleep too long. So, my question is how do we fix it now? It does not help to blame at this point. Where do we go from here? I thank you for your patriotism and your sacrifice. History has much to teach. Any ideas?
1. Keep the Tea Party movement going. Transformation from protest movement to long-term presence is hard. I suspect many of the leaders are great organizers, but totally out of their depth as leaders. I’m doing what I can from the inside, but there’s resistance: people are content with attending meetings, moaning about how awful everything is, petitions, and nice, polite letters. Hard-edged counter-propaganda and smart, aggressive politicking is how we’ll win, but nobody wants to talk about PACs or media advertising. In short, we’re thinking small and playing scared. We won’t win that way. I’m willing to stick my neck out, but not by myself.
2. Run off guys like John Boehner and the other Establishment types. If that means supporting a Democrat in the general in various races to send a message, so be it.
3. Recruit and welcome new blood. If “distinguished, long-serving ” Republicans/conservatives don’t want to get aggressive, get them out of the way.
4. Bury politicians in an avalanche of faxes, phone calls, and emails. Let them know what we’re thinking. (I tried to set up Committees of Correspondence; nobody was interested.)
That’s just for starters.
My bonafides: in mid-2008, appalled at the Republican Party’s circumstances, I tried to start a conservative movement to re-take the GOP. I had pamphlets, a plan of action, even a website (now defunct). Obviously, my marketing and organizing didn’t work. But the fact remains: conservatives weren’t interested, and I couldn’t figure out how to reach a wider audience.
The Tea Parties succeeded where people like me failed. We must keep the movement alive, aggressive, and rolling.
I advise you to stay on the inside to keep tabs on the republican establishment, but also join an active tea party on the side and work toward a Ted Cruz type victory to unseat the petrified loyal party hack. Office holders who are loyal to principles will be how the GOP will be re-directed.
Realistically, getting this done in California will be exponentially more difficult than in Texas.
I hear your pain and share your angst. If you, too, are from Kalifornia that explains much. Until we wrest control of the state party from the pathetic, gutless idiots that would rather pretend to be nice people and emulate Rodney King. nothing will change. They’d rather attend their meetings than actually – say – govern! Ugh! That might be hard work.
I attended a republican meeting this week where the speaker lectured those present on how THE PARTY had achieved majority representation in the statehouse attributed to decades of party toil and labor – failing to acknowledge the 2010 recoil against democrats across the nation, which swept in republican majorities in many states. The speaker went on to chide “hyphenated republicans” who describe themselves as conservative, tea party or libertarian-republicans who will be held responsible if Obama is re-elected.
Tea party conservatives mean what they say about reducing the size of government, which threatens the cozy, bi-partisan patronage deals formerly enjoyed unhindered by either party; in their view, the conservative tea party peoPle threaten the establishment elite grip on power more than the Democrats.
As van der Leun says: republicans: they thirst for death.
And there, dear logos, was a prime candidate to be “primaried” next time. Was extremely kind of the speaker to self-identify as part of the problem rather than the solution.
Biden is a heartbeat away from the Presidency and light-years from being trusted with America’s future.
Above all, Joe Biden says a lot about the man who picked him.
He’s no threat to BO’s huge narcissistic view of himself. He makes BO look better than he really is. And, he’s the white counterpart to Uncle Tom.
Its a real big problem. Bin Laden tried to kill Obama, not because he was the great Satan, but because he felt Biden is a boggling fool unfit for such an important role. God heko us if he was elected. I am sure the economy would get better because even thise idiots in the house could run circles around his stratergery.
What’s really sad is these are people who are educated. They have Bachelor degrees and in some cases Masters and Doctorates, yet they act like morons.
If we can draft men to fight our wars, I think it’s time to draft business leaders to run our country.
[…] work unless Florida is moored to Romney in 2012. Why did Biden play the race card? It’s not only because Biden is a drunken fool, but to counter the Great Lakes […]
“Three letters. N.O.”
lol x 100
They will ask these questions about Biden at about the same time Obama offers up his transcripts, early passports, college applications, college papers, and anything else that the LSM don’t want you to know about.
–Looks good in a thousand-dollar suit.
–A walking testimonial for hair plugs.
–Has taken spray-tan mainstream.
–Makes John Edwards look restrained, by comparison.
–Makes Debbie Wasserman Schultz sound restrained, by comparison.
Ever see the (terrible) movie Seven Days In May? There’s no question the joint chiefs would stage a coup if Biden were president.
I read Seven Days in May many years ago. A similar scenario now is a happy thought.
Joe Biden makes Debbie Schultz look like a genius in comparison.
Obama has put Joe out to pasture until the election is over. He was and still is obama’s insurance policy. Plus Joe does what he is told blindly. Too dumb to do anything else. If two thoughts entered his head at the same time his brain would crumble. He, like most the senate (and the house too for that matter) are in love with the sound of their voices and don’t pay too much attention to what comes out their mouths.
[…] In conclusion: I disagree with dear Professor Jacobson a bit — I think Joe Biden is showing an innovative amount of Presidental-level leadership in a truly novel w… […]
Don’t knock Biden too hard… Right now he’s the GOP’s biggest asset. We Don’t want a substitute ’cause anyone would certainly be better.
I want a landslide on Eviction Day in November!
Biden’s Gaffes? Nope: He Actually WANTS Obama to Lose in November!!!
Insurance policy against The One ever being removed from office by impeachment or other means, legal or not?
It’s curious to consider that the purportedly “smart” people criticized Sarah Palin for lacking everything and whatever. It’s curious because when queried she is right on more issues than any of the currently elected politicians and candidates in waiting. She also had more executive experience than Obama, McCain, and Biden combined. But, the JournoLists did not like her, envied her, and that was that. Apparently, Biden is less threatening to their fragile egos.
The mainstream Republicans swallowed the Journolist nonsense whole.
Perhaps they are part of the problem. Judge them by their actions.
Biden is bad, but at least he is eligible for the office whereas Bacrock is ineligible because of his foreign parent. I suppose that ineligibility doesn’t matter now because we will have Romney/Ryan win in a landslide.
“So when does the media put Biden’s qualification to be President on trial?”
I’m assuming this is a rhetorical question.
So, I’m not answering.
Joe Biden has long had a reputation for having a bent sense of humor. And, he may well be overtired and babbling from time to time. I think I would not be in as good a condidtion as he is, if I had to serve with that bungling gaggle of clowns Obama has appointed. But Joe may also be the Al Haig of this administration. Remember, Joe was not Obama’s choice, and if Obama gets a choice and also gets the White House, it will be worse than Joe.
When we stand back for a minute and see what the Obama campaign is attempting it borders on foolishness.
Its sort of “unsaid” by democrats that the two VP choices are indeed running against one another…not framed that way perhaps but its true.
Enter Paul Ryan. A serious candidate with some fairly serious experience serving in the House. A sort of “go to” guy with budgets etc. Now add in “likeability” factors.
Then we have Joe Biden. An obvious mismatch all ther way around. Like Obama, Biden’s biggest resume point is having been VP for 4 years unless we like to add plagerism and all around stupidity to his credentials.
So, the Dems reasoned once again..lets just destroy Ryan.
In fact several liberal writers amplified the narrative with silliness like “Wait till Obama gets done with Ryan” and other veiled threat nonsense.
Well tie him to Medicare..thats the ticket….the dem’s reasoned…people associate us dems with Medicare so its a win for us….threy thought.
Until the boomerang did what they often do…show up in your face again with inconvenient truth attached.
Ill give Palin some points for her jab at Biden that essentially trapped Obama in a “stick with Joe” box.
Time will tell just how long Obama sticks with someone that adds 0 to the campaign really and doesnt throw him under the bus.
After they stopped covering for the most unqualified man currently in office? That is never.
Evil bastard? Yup
But the MSM meme is that any bid to stop Biden’s “chains”-type comments can also mute his human touch:
When they can hold the interview at the Satan Ski Resort in Hell.
That is the very problem with the media. They see a career of acting like a clown on the judiciary committee mocking judicial nominees with more intelligence and dignity in their thumb than he has in his entire body as a major accomplishment. Ryan doesn’t play their game and thus isn’t qualified.
Fitness for president should be the first qualification for either of the two buffoons occupying the WH. There is the 25th admendment to the Constitution that were the medical records of Barry Soetero released would be legal evidence of disqualification. The public is sick of their Stupid demands for Mr. Romney back tax records. Romney should demand Obambi’s medical records and an explanation of that extensive cranial/facial scar extending from right ear circumferencing his head to the left side.
Joe Biden’s medical records have been released showing the major cerebral aneurysm 20 years ago and the two berry aneurysms 10 years ago. He has had BRAIN SURGERY twice!
Yes, the cerebral aneuaysm was the anterior communicating artery. Usually when you survive one of those, you have to wear a large placard with your name and room number so you can be returned to your home location. Explains all the gaffes.
