Are the Democrats Sensing Defeat? Ask Chris Matthews.

Are any of you Conservative news junkies sensing what I’m sensing?

Namely —

It seems the Leftist media are finally sensing defeat in November.  And I mean really sensing it. The willful self-deception that they’ve cultivated for so long is crumbling.  Their messiah is false.  He’s failed.  And rather miserably at that.  And he may well take the party down with him in just a few weeks.

Why do I think they’re sensing defeat?

One of their media princelings, Chris Matthews, the bloviating, spittle-spewing host of MSNBC’s Hardball, shifted rather abruptly into defensive alibi mode on the August 31 edition of his show, less than 24 hours after Mitt Romney’s RNC acceptance speech.  Matthews began slathering blame on “Republican opposition” for Obama’s failure, this time including a freshly announced conspiracy, ostensibly hatched “in secret” back in 2009, to oppose the President’s policies.

Short memo to Chris:  The opposition opposes.  That’s what they do.  Especially when your messiah sets about to do what he’s done. And every minority party seeks to regain the majority.  It’s nothing personal, okay?

But more importantly —

What Obama failure are you talking about?  So now Obama has failures?  Are you now implying he’ll lose the upcoming election?  Are you seeking to lay off the blame for that in advance?

Sheesh.  This is quite a shift for a mawkishly liberal, self-delusional, sycophantic, Obama camp follower like you, no?  Has that 2008 tingle up your leg migrated to a 2012 chill up your spine?

What happened?  Did you watch the RNC speeches that your network wouldn’t air?  Were you frightened by the depth of the Republican bench?  (If so, eat your heart out, pal.)    Did you mentally compare Paul Ryan to Joe Biden and suffer a panic attack?

I occasionally enjoy your show for its unintentional humor, but the sea change in your August 31 show was positively delightful.  Please do it again on your next show.  Please.  As the RNC mystery guest said: Go ahead. Make my day.

Vetting the Democrat Candidate for President — the DMC

The traditional role of the press includes investigation diligence and balanced reporting. In 2008, America’s elite legacy media gave up those principles when they avoided vetting then-candidate Barack Obama.  They traded the highest standards of their once-noble profession for their own parochial purpose — namely, partisan political advocacy for their favored candidate.  The late Andrew Breitbart appropriately named these media the Democrat Media Complex (DMC).

So far, it appears that the DMC will do the same in 2012, distracting voters from core issues like debt bondage for our children in favor of ginned-up crises built atop absurd lies like “Republicans want to outlaw contraception“.  That obfuscation strategy worked last time, and the DMC is certain to double down on it now that they need to obscure Obama’s dismal 3-year performance record.

Of course, the DMC still controls most of broadcast television and the print media, including the venerable New York Times from which so many DMC camp followers take their cue.  The Times, in my opinion, long ago traded its motto All the News That’s Fit to Print for a tacit, new de facto motto “The News We Choose that Fits Our Views.”  That much better describes the current modus operandi by which they hope to achieve their self-assigned sacred mission to re-elect Barack Obama.  The revised motto even sounds better.

All that just means it’s up to the New Media, including citizen journalists, to vet the Democrat candidate for President in the 2012 election.  A Gateway Pundit example appears below — an unearthed Illinois Daily Herald interview with Harvard student Barack Obama from May 1990.  Obama’s words speak volumes about who he is, where he comes from, and what his life’s ambitions are.

Will the DMC print and analyze this interview?  Will they ever ask President Obama to explain it to us?  Don’t hold your breath.  But do read the interview to learn more about the Democrat candidate for President in 2012.  Don’t miss the passage at the end that reads:

“… we’re going to reshape America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous”, Obama said.  “I mean, I really hope to be part of a transformation of this country.”  And the future of black people and of America generally?  “It depends on how good [sic] I do my job,” he said.
