Tone Deaf?

Bleh, maybe it's me, after looking over some of the recent entries on this blog. But hey, it's worth every penny.

No, actually the tone deafness question is aimed at the administration of course. Obama started the midweek pushback to Brown's victory by claiming that Massachusetts voters were actually condemning George W. Bush in their election of Brown, not him. It might be funny if it wasn't so serious.

Then Gibbs doubled down today on Fox News Sunday, saying the same thing to a stunned Wallace. But what actually left Wallace mumbling was Gibbs saying the FBI got all they could possibly get out of terrorist Abdulmuttalob before Mirandizing him. "All that they could", Wallace repeated? "Yes". What more could be said? What do you say to someone who might deny the existence of the sun?

As Gibbs was on Fox "Obama's brain" was on another Sunday show telling them that Obama's bow tour travels around the world have forged better alliances and that we're safer despite several domestic terror attacks they've been busily ignoring:
Obama's travels have established relationships with world leaders that "lay a foundation for keeping America safe and making us a partner around the world," she added.
Evidently that doesn't include the former PM of Malaysia, who in the midst of blaming 9/11 on America didn't spare the One:
Mahathir also criticised US President Barack Obama for failing to fulfil his promises concerning the country's commitment in West Asia, including his promise to resolve the prevailing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

'I am a bit disappointed because so far none of his promises have been kept. He promised to get out from Afghanistan but he ended up sending more troops there instead.

'He promised to close down Guantanamo but he has not closed down Guantanamo.

'It is quite easy to promise during election time but you know there are forces in the United States which prevent the President from doing some things. One of the forces is the Jewish lobby, AIPAC,' he said.
Which is essentially something bin Laden might say minus the conspiracy.

And as all this bizarre denial occurs bloggers are uncovering more and more fake letters to editors at papers all around the country. Whether this is part of the administration's new 'feisty' response to the Brown victory (which don't forget actually favors Obama, according to Obama) or a loosening of rules is not known. It's almost too much to take anymore. Maybe we are near the end. What next, the Cubs winning the World Series? I'm closing this laptop and going back to watching Viking Bret Favre trying to reach the Super Bowl while flipping over to check up with Fred Couples debut on the Senior Tour.
