The Blind, Leading The Naked...

...well, what else can you call it when the president of the United States, in response to a jihadi assault on an American military base, parrots the media's feckless excuses for the slaughter:

Well, look, we — we have seen, in the past, rampages of this sort. And in a country of 300 million people, there are going to be acts of violence that are inexplicable. Even within the extraordinary military that we have — and I think everybody understands how outstanding the young men and women in uniform are under the most severe stress — there are going to be instances in which an individual cracks. I think the questions that we’re asking now and we don’t have yet complete answers to is, is this an individual who’s acting in this way or is it some larger set of actors? You know, what are the motivations? Those are all questions that I think we have to ask ourselves. Until we have these answers buttoned down, I’d rather not comment on it.

Now, if it were something as simple as, say, a white police officer arresting a black man, Baracky would have been all over it. But a Muslim gunman, who had made incendiary remarks about America and "non-believers", who has associated with the same radicals as the 9/11 jackals, and who opened fire on American soldiers while screaming "Alluha Akar" ? No comment from our Jedi Master-in-Chief...because first, we must divine the true "motivations" here...

No wonder the media has such a hard-on for Barack Obama. Both fancy themselves as intellectual elite well above the common rabble, and they prove it by trying to make the painfully obvious into something much more complex and meaningful than it really is. After all, to admit the obvious would take neither intellect or elitism, right? So they construct a tapestry of deceit, falsehoods, and bizarre suppositions, unsupported by truth or reality (where's the last psychiatrist that went on a killing spree, anyway?), which they then use to combat "common sense" and thus prove their own intellectual superiority. The hard part is trying to put it over on the American people as a whole. Liberals are easy marks, but that remaining pesky 70%...

Well, either Obama has swallowed this load whole or finds it a useful narrative for his see-no-evil worldview (unless they're Jews). The rest of America is not falling for this line of bullsh*t so fast, despite (or because of) the president's endorsement of this insane line of reasoning.

But the media has noticed that Obama has taken their cue, and they're going to reward him for it. The Associated Press has a story out, full of breathless anticipation, on how this tragedy can help the Obama presidency. The AP's calculation is clear: Dead soldiers = political points for Obama as the nation swoons over more flightly, empty rhetoric. Political points = health care reform and cap & trade, two bills favored by the media as a whole.

It's quite a dance that these two are having. Maybe someone ought to tell them that the music's long since stopped, and the onlookers are whispering nervously to themselves as they watch, wondering if these two lovers are just a bit off-kilter, or dangerously insane....

Them or us. Choose.

Because that's how they feel about us, and act accordingly.

You are either with us, or with the terrorists.
