Fishwrap (the week in review)

Blog Post

It hasn’t been the best week for Barack.

  • President Obama suffered a defeat at the hands of his own party on Tuesday, as Senate Democrats blocked a key component of the president’s trade agenda.  Never fear, the Republicans are there to help Barack. (riddle me that one, friends)
  • The rulers of most of the Gulf nations have decided to skip a summit hosted by the president at Camp David. While the Saudis and others still want to buy high-tech military hardware from the United States, they really don’t care what Barack has to say. So the sheiks are sending in second stringers — sort of like when we send Joe Biden to advise them.
  • The President’ handicap was raised after some embarrassing rounds of golf.

Are you ready for Hillary?
A month after she announced her candidacy she has yet to give an interview. Since she has the Democratic Party nomination sewed up, she doesn’t need to speak to the press and when she does, she whines about how broke she and Bill are. In light of the damaging book, Clinton Cash, the Clintonian machine is sending out factotums to spin the story and attack the author. If Hillary were to do it, she’d come of mean and petty…Because she’s mean and petty.
The Democrats, when polled, agree that Hillary is a liar who can’t be trusted, but they still think that she’d make a great president because she’s a woman. Nothing new to report there.
Immigration Reform?
On building a border wall: “People who live in gated communities tell us fences don’t work.”
On welfare: “Today’s immigrants aren’t coming here to breathe free, they’re coming to live for free.”
On how the media shut down the immigration debate: “It can be difficult to discuss America’s immigration policies when it’s considered racist merely to say, ‘We liked America the way it was.’

Buying Votes – one at a time:

There are currently 13 million ObamaPhones in service in America
There are currently 46 million people receiving food stamps in America

Clintonian Attack Disguised

Clinton Shill
This past week, ABC correspondent George Stephanopoulos, who was elevated to national stature by Bill Clinton during his presidency, went on the attack when he interviewed the author of “Clinton Cash”. The high-profile book examins potential conflicts of interest behind Clinton Foundation funding — on ABC’s “This Week.” 

Stephanopoulos did not disclose his own contribution of $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

There are a lot of people who don’t recall the scandal of Stephanopoulos’s cocaine use and the forgiveness of the Clintons who let him keep his job in the West Wing. These things set up a situation where people like “Hobbit” (his nickname) owed Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. It removed his objectivity, and credibility. Not that this situation is unique in the mainstream media.

  1. GS is a corrupt little hobbit. His father's a senior Orthodox priest, interestingly.

  2. I wonder why Stephy-the-Hobbit didn't follow his father into the priesthood? I don't think that he'd look all that good in a beard…and hobbits don't have beards, dwarves do. Stephy-the-Dwarf would work too.

  3. All that time spent golfing and he still needed his handicap raised? Does he do NOTHING well? Maybe he initiated Obamaphones and Obamacare stuff just to provide for his own future.
