Thanks go out to Carolyn for this head's up and summing up of another Leftist turning on Obama.
The Left is turning on Obama. Here below is the link from Ted Rall - editorial cartoonist - who now has turned venomously against Obama.
A word on Rall's leftist credentials. He is not an unknown cartoonist - he's President of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and holds tremendous clout in being able to put his political sympathies across. Which are? Well, his cartoons have depicted Condoleeza Rice as a "house nigga" and smeared the late Pat Tillman as an 'idiot' and 'sap' (and 'hero' - a bad trait in Rall's opinion) for giving up his NFL career to join the military after 9/11. Rall also wrote an editorial in 2004 saying that "American troops occupying Iraq have become virtually indistinguishable from the SS". The title of the editorial was "An Army of Scum: Or, We're Looking For a Few Good Homosexual Rapists".
With such sterling leftist credentials, Rall was one of THE main cheerleaders for Obama. Yes, Rall's Emperor was clothed in righteousness and wonder. When Obama showed his naked greed by selling out his Chicago constituents to a slum landlord who rewarded Obama with a mansion while Obama's constituents shivered and died in Rezko's decaying buildings - Rall didn't say a thing. When Obama showed his naked ambition by currying favor with a violent and unrepentent terrorist who whined about not killing enough Americans, Rall didn't do a single cartoon. When Obama showed his naked greed by taking thousands in donations from UCMC (plus a whopping salary for the wife) after Michelle arranged it so that thousands of impoverished Chicagoans were banished from the hospital to understaffed clinics so UCMC could save millions of dollars by not giving health care to the uninsured - well, Rall didn't even blink. Rall didn't even bat an eye as Obama showed his naked ruthlessness by throwing his own white grandmother under the bus - and then, a few weeks later, crunched the body of his 'uncle' minister beneath the same tires.
So - why is Rall in such a lather now? Can it be that he's finally woken up to the destruction, greed and misery that Obama has created for others in Obama's ruthless, self-serving clawing climb to the Oval Office? Nope. Frankly my dear, Rall doesn't give a damn about them. The real reason Rall is upset is because for the first time his own carcass is about to be tossed under the treads. You see, Obama has just proposed a new law - 'preventive detentions' - designed to arrest people suspected of future crimes against America. Though the law is supposedly aimed at Somali pirates, Rall suspects (and with rather good reason) that the law could be directed at anyone who hates America and wishes her harm. And that definition, by golly, fits Rall to a 'T'. (Come on, if equating the American military with the SS isn't hatred, I don't know what is.) Yup, Rall had no problem in the past watching other victims tossed under the wheels of Obama's bus. But now that Rall's derriere is about to be crunched beneath the Goodyears, well, Rall finally finds his voice of 'outrage'. Nice going, Rall.
That teeny tiny sound you hear is the noise of a thousand invisible violins saying 'my heart bleeds for you truthfully'.
"MIAMI — We expected broken promises. But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obama’s inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through.
From health care to torture to the economy to war, Obama has reneged on pledges real and implied. So timid and so owned is he that he trembles in fear of offending, of all things, the government of Turkey. Obama has officially reneged on his campaign promise to acknowledge the Armenian genocide. When a president doesn’t have the nerve to annoy the Turks, why does he bother to show up for work in the morning?
Obama is useless. Worse than that, he’s dangerous. Which is why, if he has any patriotism left after the thousands of meetings he has sat through with corporate contributors, blood-sucking lobbyists and corrupt politicians, he ought to step down now — before he drags us further into the abyss."
“Our” ABC is as offensive as the people it employs - Leftoids are not missing the point; they are deliberately ignoring the point. It is how the left do business. Some people like to soil themselves, others g...
