Pointing Fingers At Critics, Leftist Media Furious Over Obama Troubles


Left's Blind Faith Caused Obamavich Scandal




Now that it is abundantly clear that their Messiah isn't all he was cracked up to be, angry leftists are busy pointing fingers at conservatives, accusing them of "gloating" over Obama's home turf troubles.

It isn't just left wing blogs and liberal talk hosts in a state of rage: the Obama-supporting al-Reuters wire service has jumped out in front with this thinly-disguised attack on Obama critics:

Conservatives gleeful over governor's arrest

By Matthew Bigg

ATLANTA (Reuters) - U.S. conservatives rubbed their hands with glee on Wednesday over news that the Democratic governor of Illinois has been accused of attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat of President-elect Barack Obama.

Federal prosecutors said Obama was not connected to charges on Tuesday that Gov. Rod Blagojevich tried to sell the seat Obama vacated shortly after winning the presidency on November 4 for financial and other benefits for himself and his wife.

But news of his arrest came at a perfect time for conservatives reeling from big losses in November's congressional and presidential elections that put Obama in line to succeed U.S. President George W. Bush on January 20.

The story's shock value and explosive quotes from wiretaps by FBI investigators ensure the Blagojevich scandal is something voters will talk about amid questions about possible links between Obama and the governor.

"Folks, this sitcom just gets better and better every day. This is unbelievable! Except that it's all too believable," said Rush Limbaugh, a leading conservative U.S. talk radio host.

Obama should escape being tainted by the scandal since he has never been close to Blagojevich, analysts said, and Limbaugh did not accuse Obama of involvement in the alleged crime.

But Limbaugh said it was evidence of Democratic Party corruption.

"Both parties engage in this stuff but corruption is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party, always has been, always will be," Limbaugh said on Tuesday.

The issue of Democratic Party corruption is sweet for Republicans, whose party has been rocked by a series of corruption and sex scandals that helped lead to large congressional losses in 2006 and continued with the recent conviction of senior Republican Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska.

The Republican National Committee accused Obama of making "carefully parsed and vague" statements about contact he and his team have had with Blagojevich and said the president-elect should "immediately disclose any and all communications" with the governor's office.


"For the last three years, Democratic leaders cheered GOP ethics woes," said commentator Michelle Malkin on the conservative Townhall blog.

"But with the eye-popping, pay-for-play and bribery case against ... Blagojevich topping a year of nationwide Democratic scandals, the corruption chickens are coming home to roost," she said.

The Washington Times headlined its story on Blagojevich "Scandal casts cloud over Obama presidency" and many conservative websites and blogs echoed that view.

Talk show host Neal Boortz, who describes himself as a libertarian, headlined an online column about the story "The Gift that Keeps On Giving" because of its potential to revive conservatives.

"Did Barack Obama's transition team know this was going on? Heck, did Barack Obama himself know this was going on?," asked Boortz.

But why back down in the face of liberal anger? Here's why conservatives should feel free to gloat:

After two years of shoving him down America's collective throats, it turns out Obama isn't a messiah or even much of a political leader. Instead, he's a garden variety Chicago corruptocrat.

As more details emerge from the FBI's investigation, even if Obama isn't shown to be directly involved, the political and personal relationships he's had with these crooks will be enough to take the glow off of the Dear Leader.

And after eight years of relentless and mostly unfair Bush-bashing, it's now clear the left's alternative is a political unknown with a great deal of personal and political baggage. The mainstream media's role in covering up Obama's true nature was absolutely disgusting.

How could someone become president without being properly vetted in advance?

While many conservatives have abandoned the Republican Party, the left maintains an unhealthy blind faith in the Democrats. That unquestioning support invites corruption, leading to these brazen incidents.

Should Obama actually remain in office for a full, four-year term, the coming scandals are going to keep a lot of us quite busy. And thanks to the left's ill-considered worship of this odd character, conservatives will benefit from the resulting Barack-lash well into the forseeable future.

You gotta love the left: when they screw up, it's a doozy!

  • Buyers remorse? When after 4 years of Rush Limbaugh insisting that Obama was directly involved with the scandal, and nothing, not a shred of evidence lends credibility to the theory...... once more normal Americans will laugh last. Ironically, Obama's approval rating just shot up!

    America is happy with electing Obama, he vast, vast majority.
    over 70%, and he is not even if office yet.

    Live with it, right wing media is irrelevant and speaks for the fringe, not America in general.

    yet another White Water( and I did not support Clinton either)

    just like White-water, wing nuts will be grasping at straws. I did not even vote Obama, but I guarantee you now, Obama will be exonerated.

    Look I get the RNC talking points, I understand how the RNC works, the talking points are filtered over to the radio hosts, repeated word per word by the hosts, and recited by the ditto-heads who worship these hosts.

    WP Dunn, hate to break it to you, but Republicans will remain out of power for the next 50 years. We all understand politicians are corrupt, no Democrat thinks their party is angelic. Only Republicans place all their faith in a political party. Republicans have shown to legislate against common, working people, all the scandals in the world will not get Republicans back in power.
    People are not going to vote for the party of the rich, because Democrats are corrupt.

    I have my RNC talking points too, and I'm rolling on the floor laughing as always.

    Obama will be re-elected in a landslide in 4 years and will most likely get their 60 seats in 2 years. Republicans are finished, 30 years of legislating against working people, did them in. No scandal will reverse the rejection of the GOP. NONE

    Sane America will sit back and laugh at the GOP, and vote more GOP freaks out of office. You can scream " bu bu bu blovich, blogovich" like the sheep that you are.

    Obama's troubles? HYSTERICAL. After 8 years of Bush, America i rejoicing Bush is gone in 5 weeks. America is thrilled. America hates the GOP. Get it through your thick skulls.

    after Bush ran this country into oblivion, nobody cares about this scandal and nobody but wingnuts are blaming Obama

    When America is unified around their president, you know a Democrat is in power and you know wing-nuts will take their Anti-American stance

    but but Blogovich!!! bu bu

    get ready for 8 years of GOP whining, in January the entire nation will celebrate and Republicans will be bitter and threatening to leave the country

    The govorner was caught on tape cursing Obama, so much for Obama being involved.

    give us all a break

    America is happy, Bush is DONE, Republicans are done. Patriots are thrilled.

    in 8 years we all can here the right wing shrieking bu bu bu bu senator-gate!!!! Hysterical

  • There is no evidence that Obama is in any way involved in the Governor's problems.

    The prosecutor even said so. The Governor, from his own comments, obviously hated the President Elect because he wouldn't play along with him.

    So stop making stuff up. It degrades all our lives.

  • Ever notice when Americans are happy, Republicans are miserable and trying to destroy the president?

    Repukes, you are either with us, or with the terrorists. Obama has a mandate and his approval ratings shot up, in a poll released today

    When America does well, when America is optimistic, Republicans are miserable. Republicans are only happy when the vast majority of Americans are angry, broke and miserable, like the past 8 years

    As Obama slowly repairs the economy and America's reputation, Repukes will be more and more miserable. Republicans hate when the common folk are happy and successful.
    They hated FDR, cursed his existence, since FDR helped the working class, but cheered Ronald Reagan as he slaughtered nuns in South America, and destroyed American labor. sick, sick, people.

    Bush was a wet dream for them. Corpses on 9-11 corpses from Iraq, corpses from New Orleans, poverty, unemployment, decreased wages, increased hunger. 8 years of virtual terrorism against America, and Republicans were thrilled. You people are sick Anti-American degenerates
    Jobs disappearing, un-insured children, failing schools, Republicans rejoiced.

    sick, sick, degenerates. Only a true terrorist would defend Bush and still defend Bush. Maek Levin is a terrorist, Limbaugh is a terrorist, Hannity is a terrorist.
    Maloney is a terrorist, supporting Bush is akin to terrorism, and now the terrorists are upset, their jihad leader is leaving office

    . You people supported a president that destroyed America, and gleefully supported him.

    Republicans are thrilled when America is suffering. Now America is optimistic, Republicans are on suicide watch

    real sick people

  • Projection, Denial and Mindless Pack Mentality its a liberal thing

    if you don't think that Obammy isn't wired into to the Chicago Machine Politic, you are either desperately ignorant of the history of Ill. politics or willingly complacent about
    just what is it with this Limbaugh fixation? homosexual wishing?
    ideological impotence?

    Keep rearranging the deck chairs and tuning up the band
    the S.S. Obama is heading into the North Atlantic

    you idiots would sell your grandmothers to a whorehouse to keep flogging the dead horse of socialism,
    reason history and facts aren't something a bunch of emotionally stunted children can handle. The once respectable opposition party of the Democrats, the party of Hubert Humphrey, Daniel Patrick Monaghan, and Shirley Chisholm have been replaced by paranoiac truthers self absorbed baby boomers and
    i weep for the good honest dems
    perhaps its time for you to expel your John Birchers
