Obama caves to Romney, according to Munro in the Examiner:
President Barack Obama used Air Force One to conduct a policy loop-de-loop Wednesday, asserting in a CBS interview that he supports Americans’ right to criticize Islam, following almost 18 hours of determined condemnation from Team Romney and damaging news from Egypt and Libya.
“We believe in the First Amendment,” Obama told CBS’s Steve Kroft during an interview arranged days earlier.
“It is one of the hallmarks of our Constitution that I’m sworn to uphold, and so we are always going to uphold the rights for individuals to speak their mind,” he said, according to a transcript narrated by White House spokesman Jay Carney.
This is about the bazillionth time in the last three years that:
- Crisis event occurs.
- Obama administration offers a creepy response.
- American outrage ensues.
- Obama administration mumbles something recognizably American.
I submit that:
- #2 represents the actual Obama opinion on #1 for his real audience, for which he’ll have more flexibility after his re-coronation in November.
- #4 is just a bone thrown to those bitter, racist cling-ons in flyover country.
This administration is pretty much guilty until proven innocent by non-Commie validation, as far as I’m concerned. The sense of the word prevaricate seems to be a sequence of fact distortion moving from false to true, as investigation drags facts to light.
Maybe one of the few genuine ‘accomplishments’ of this administration is creation of a new form of lying: postvarication, where the truth is served up for the target audience, and then a pile of hooey follows for the purported rubes. Postvarication goes from true to false.
This blog doesn’t believe much of anything said by the administration or the media. Even though I didn’t like Clinton, I was still willing to give the creep the benefit of the doubt. BHO & Co. have a tremendous problem on their hands, as they systematically de-legitimize everything about our culture and its institutions.
