Do you consider yourself “bored” and needing “some kind of intrigue in life?” Seems that’s the conclusion of what this trio of whiz-bangs think about anyone that thinks Dear Leader is, and has been, hiding something about himself since day one! How dare any of you question anything about Dear Leader and his past, you’re just another conspirator, it’s time for you to move on and ask no questions…period!
What’s really irksome about this trio the most has to be when it comes to leftist-loon Marjorie Clifton. She’s declared Dear Leader has been ‘vetted‘ twice already, so that’s that…end of discussion! Vetted my arse! He’s never been properly vetted, he never will be when it comes to the so-called ‘journalists’ and we all know it!
Seems to me, ‘vetting’ someone is what the same journalists have done just the last week with Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o…now that’s vetting dontcha know! Of course it serves these same so-called journalists purpose at the end of the game when they’re on the attack…but, hey, they won’t do the same for their Dear Leader in any way, shape or form….no siree!
There are other things in this report when it comes to what was said on this panel that bothered me, but that’s just me. – Now friends, don’t think anyone such as myself thinks any of this will go anywhere at this stage of the game when it comes to Dear Leader and such, we all know it won’t. Nevertheless, the attitude from this panel is condescending to say the very least.
See what you think. – This is via Mediaite:
Today’s political panel on Fox’s America Live took on a recent poll which found that 36 percent of Americans, including 64 percent of Republicans, believe President Obama is hiding something about his background and early life.
Conservative panelist Tucker Carlson dismissed the findings, saying, “The same poll showed 36% of Democrat think that Bush was part of the 9/11 conspiracy theory. It’s a complicated world and people use these conspiracy theories to explain it when they don’t understand it. The real mystery is not where Obama is from — who cares — it’s the motives in doing the things he does.”
“Is this because, people talk about, ‘Was he born in Kenya?’ ‘Is he a Muslim?’ or is this because Barack Obama has some inability to break through the veneer and say, ‘I’m a regular guy. Trust me. I was born in Hawaii’?” host Megyn Kelly asked.
Liberal panelist Marjorie Clifton posited that the distrust stems from the fact that Obama “is a different kind of president than we’ve ever seen. He’s an African-American man, to start with. He’s also a little bit more academic. He’s one of those people that sort of internalizes and processes things before he comes out and states his policy. Very different from President Bush and Clinton.”
She added that Obama has been “vetted through two presidential campaigns” and yet conspiracy theorists and birthers like Donald Trump “come forward and try to create questions” to “create a media buzz,” which could “impact public opinion.”
Kelly then pointed out that there are still calls on the right for Obama to release his college transcripts and asked, “Should we not be so dismissive of the 36% of americans w have questions about that?”
Carlson responded: “To answer basic questions about his background — I’m not sure how relevant they would be; it wouldn’t change my view of his political ideas, which are wrong — but he deserves to be asked the questions.”
He also took exception with Clifton’s claim that the president was vetted. “He was not vetted much by the press,” Carlson said. “Most reporters felt in ’08 and 2012 it was pretty important that this guy be elected president, a historic figure, good guy, one of us, academic and intellectual, they didn’t do a deep dive on Barack Obama. There were very few hard-nose reporters in the campaigns. Trust me, I was there.”
Ultimately, the panel agreed, these conspiracies arise from people being “bored” and needing “some kind of intrigue in life.”
“Most of the power of the country is concentrated in a relatively few number of hands, and it’s a very complex series of systems that run the world,” Carlson concluded, “and most people don’t understand them and are frustrated by that and resort, sadly in my view, to sometimes fantastical conspiracy theories to explain them.”
Throw in your two-cents, anything about any of this that bothers you? Are you one of those that are with the one-third of Americans that don’t think things are on the up and up when it comes to Dear Leader and never have been when it comes to his past…or not?
