And Your Point Is… by Miz Pink

So Deke seems to be lulling again and I’m bored so let me tell ya…

I was in the library and saw a woman with the book “Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies” by Michelle Malkin under her arm.

It made me cringe and yes I admit that’s because I’m a liberal and not afraid to admit it and I like President Barack Obama plenty and his lovely and talented wife too.

Even stepping back from my lib leanings though I thought about why it bothered me.

We’re still pretty early in Barack’s first term. People are throwing around terms like socialist and liar and traitor and nastier things when it comes to the Big O and now Michelle Malkin…who likes to crow about her journalistic cred…is doing the same with a pretty inflammatory title.

I’m not saying BHO is clean as a whistle now. The man came through the Chicago political machine and there are lots of dirty gears in that bugger.

What bugs me is that I’ve been a-searching the Interwebs to find me some equally inflammatory stuff about George W. Bush after his horrid two terms and I haven’t found a book with the same kind of bile about dubya the shrub so far and that was a man who lied to get us into a massive war and a man who won at least one election through cheating and a man who had all sorts of corruption around Halliburton and other huge companies and who helped usher in the almost collapse of our economy.

Eight years of madness and the only books about Bush with nasty titles seem to be obscure and by not well known writers unless I’m missing something. But put a black man in the White House and dang we can’t get half through his term without a supposedly reputable journalistic conservative woman making out like Barack is some evil the likes of which we’ve never seen.

He may not be clean lady but name me a recent president who was and let’s talk about your boys Bush and Cheney while we’re at it.

    I’m sure the woman you saw in the library will be tickled pink if it turns out that the rumors of Obama having committed adultery in the early 2000’s prove true.

    Probly would be tickled. What about you Deke? Not getting disillusioned yet over O-man and gettin ready to join the Teabagger party?

    Dear God no! I’m not disillusioned with the President, because unlike a lot of folks, I supported him (and still do) without putting him on some pedestal. I frankly couldn’t care less who he has boffed in the past or might be boffing now and into the future. Clinton certainly got plenty done while getting BJs under the desk by an intern.

    What sickens me, though, is this insistence on the GOP wanting to take Dems down on these issues of morality. As much as I despised almost everything that Bush the second did, I pretty much focused on the lies and the outright dirty deeds and the continued raping of the working class, middle class and environment. When people were speculating that Condie Rice sure seemed to spend a lot more time traveling with Dubya than was necessary, the only thing I thought was, “Well, in a weird way, they kind of make a cute couple.” If someone had release video and glossy prints of him and Condoleeza knocking boots, I wouldn’t have cared, because it had nothing to do with his job. And if Dems had tried to take him down over something sexual, I would have been horrified.

    I frankly just want the fucking politicians on both sides to stop trying to undermine each other and start doing the damned work we elected them to do. If they spent more energy on trying to make the country something that works for most of the population and that moves us forward…and far less on sniping and backstabbing…maybe our economy wouldn’t be teetering on a razor’s edge.

    OK, stepping off soapbox before I start developing high blood pressure…

    True. I think you’ll like my current post on my take on why this is.

    @ Kit,

    Just finally got a chance to read it, and that was some powerful stuff you were slinging there. Very much on point, to the point, and pointed. πŸ™‚

    @ SocietyVs,

    Yeah, Mrs. Blue often notes that class is the bigger issue than race societally speaking, and money/economics is at the heart of class conflict.

    kinda went overboard on using the word ‘point’ to go and tie the title of my post to your praise of KIT’s dontcha think? πŸ˜› but I agree she did a really good post.

    Thanks, glad I got my “point” across. πŸ˜‰
