Is it possible that President Barack Hussein Obama’s recent meeting with Leftist Bloggers was a think tank moment on ways to smear Sarah Palin between now and 2012? Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King writing in Big Journalism takes on Leftist media watchdog known as Media Matters. Taylor/King write that Media Matters’ Oliver Willis skewed a faux pas by Sarah Palin mistakenly saying North Korea was America’s as a knock at her intelligence. The reality is Palin did say such a thing then corrected herself.
When Leftists decided to jump on the vilify Palin machine one should be reminded that Palin was ready for Left Wing hypocrisy. Palin wrote on her Facebook Page:
In a Thanksgiving Day message posted Nov. 25th on her Facebook page, Palin opened her post with a tongue in cheek send-up of President Barack Obama in which no fewer than ten of his verbal gaffes and misstatements were included and sourced.
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that …
The point Palin was making was that though everyone occasionally goofs up — including the President, you might not remember hearing about his, “because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy,” Palin wrote. (From Big Journal)
The subtle Taylor/King point being made is that Media Matters fails as a watchdog and succeeds as a fringe Left Democratic Party tool.
My point is based on this observation:
Such is not the case when it comes to Palin who in the course of a radio interview with Glenn Beck, mistakenly referred to South Korea as North Korea, but then quickly corrected herself. Media Matters blogger Oliver Willis, writing at his personal blog, posted the audio clip of Palin’s slip. Willis is one of several liberal bloggers who met recently with President Obama at the White House. (From Big Journalism- Emphasis is mine)
What would be the reason President BHO would meet with a bunch of Left Wing bloggers? Can you say Saul Alinsky? Alinsky was President Barack Hussein Obama’s Marxist community organizing hero for transforming society from the Constitutional status quo.
