This is what happens when you have a media that is so liberal they refused to vent candidate Obama.
They conveniently left this out along with his 20 year attendance at a racist church.
But had a republican been part of a far right wing group, or attended a racist church it would be on the front page as it should be. And it will be difficult to beat a guy who has this kind of backing. Possible for sure but difficult.[/quote]
Had to come out of retirement for this one, Zeb. Candidate Barack Obama’s relationship to Jeremiah Wright became a public controversy because of a March 2008 expose undertakes an published by ABC–an outlet that I assume falls squarely in the “liberal media” column for you and your fellow-travelers here.
A search for “Reverend Wright” on the New York Times’ website yields 3,430 internal results. More than ten of them appeared on the front page, above the fold.
There is a glut of Romney stories at the moment because this is his first time as the Republican nominee. Stories about Obama’s past were done–done EVERYWHERE–in 2008. Now those stories are old, and if newsmen have any real overriding bias, it is for the new and against the old.[/quote]
Nonsense, total nonsense. FOX was the first to expose the Rev. Wright story. After that any liberal media that was forced to air it or publish it (because of FOX) also had a slew of syncophants creating an atomosphere of excuses for Obama’s 20 year attendance at a racist church.
As far as airing the truth about Obama on their own they never did. Did you happen to notice the title of this thread? Where was the story about Obama’s involvement in this socialist organization back in 2008?
WHERE WAS IT?
But today the press is all worried about Romney’s involvement in Bain Capital. How interesting, a former Governor and the savior of the Olympics gets grilled about legitimately making money 30 years ago. Yet, on the other hand Candidate Obama’s socialist ties was never mentioned. Anyone who doesn’t admit a liberal bias in the press is either stupid or a democrat. And in many cases it’s the same thing!
You should have stayed in retirement because you brought nothing to this debate but more excuses for the chosen one.
You are incorrect, despite your argument by assertion. I believe that Tucker Carlson was the first to mention it, very early on and only in passing (on MSNBC). The first direct, mainstream treatment of the substance of Wright’s crackpot idiocy is the following, a Washington Post piece on Wright having given an award to an anti-Semite–dated Jan. 15, 2008:
That predates the initial Fox and ABC stories–which ran 16 hours apart, on March 12 and 13–by two months.[/quote]
So this article came out in the Washington Post and none of the TV news services ran with it for two months. It reinforces the point that Obama got a pass from the press. Even FOX went soft on him.
The story about his socialist party membership also came out in 2008! But all he had to do is the Jedi mind trick and say is it “preposterous, these aren’t the associations you’re looking for, move along” and the press moved on.
Now we have actual documentation proving that it’s not made up, he really was a member of a socialist party, that wants to remake America into a European style socialist state. Which confirms what I wrote in the “birthers are crazy?” thread in reference to his going to Europe and telling the Europeans that they have the leading role in the world that Americans are arrogant to dismiss.
That’s why I started this thread. Because it is a story that is at least as worthy of discussion. European style socialism is where he is taking us and after he’s reelected he’ll have “more flexibility” to “fundamentally transform America”.
I was taking issue with a specific, specious claim of Zeb’s, not the premise of the original post. If you’d like me to address the latter: now that there is documentary evidence, it is a story, and should be treated as such.
But what you cleverly avoid is the obvious nature regarding one being indicative of the other. The MSLM soft peddled Obama’s attendance at a racist Church. And now they’re ignoring his Socialist ties.
There is no defending one without mentioning the others.
