Just a few days ago we were speaking of the seemingly limitless duplicity of those who argue from the left. I suppose if your unofficial slogan is "by any means necessary" then it would all make some sort of sense. Though not moral, at least one could see it as purposeful. But if you really believe you have the better ideas, that what you stand for is something that people would choose if they understood it properly, then why go through all the double speak? Well, over at the Daily Gator I came across a perfect illustraion of what we, the American people, are up against. An Edward Daley put together these three videos. Mark Steyn and Newt Gingrich are superb at contrasting what Obama says with the reality that we have to live in. Let's watch:
What sticks in my craw is the stone cold delivery Obama gives... the pregnant pauses, the solemn expression, the studied starring straight into the camera. Quite frankly I found the performance to be ... a performance. That just plain annoys me! Meanwhile, he knows it's all a scam, a story wrapped up and delivered for our consumption. Just words, mind you, he's not a hater (right). When you are the president of the United States and you are lying to the American people, how much lower can you go? The utter contempt he shows for us, we the people that elected him. I guess he figures we're just not smart enough to figure out his game. This guy...
If you have the 26 minutes, you won't find a better illustration of how utterly empty everything this guys says is.
With a big tip of the hat to Gator Doug.
