Obama's Critics So Dumb?'
NewsBusters -- It seems almost impossible to believe, but the upcoming issue of Newsweek has a cover story entitled "Why Are Obama's Critics So Dumb?"
Is there anything the mainstream media won't do to get Obama reelected?
****Update: Politico has some excerpts from the not yet published article...
“[I]t remains simply a fact that Obama has delivered in a way that the unhinged right and purist left have yet to understand or absorb. Their short-term outbursts have missed Obama’s long game … [T]he president begins by extending a hand to his opponents; when they respond by raising a fist, he demonstrates that they are the source of the problem; then, finally, he moves to his preferred position of moderate liberalism and fights for it without being effectively tarred as an ideologue or a divider. This kind of strategy takes time. And it means there are long stretches when Obama seems incapable of defending himself, or willing to let others to define him, or simply weak. I remember those stretches during the campaign against Hillary Clinton. I also remember whose strategy won out in the end.”
Blog author's comments - The article about Obama's 'dumb critics' is by Andrew Sullivan - this is the same person who believes Sarah Palin faked her fifth pregnancy, and her son Trig was actually her daughter's.
This should tell almost everyone what they can expect from Newsweek. Does anyone still read and believe what is written in this dying tabloid?
This will be a vicious campaign for the election of 2012. The left senses that the control of America may be within their grasp, and a second term for Obama could cement that control in place.
I don’t believe that enough people are taking this election as seriously as they should. There are many who have blinders on and cannot envision the damage Obama will do if he wins a second term.
