George Will: Obama Is An Expert At Selling Snake Oil |

"I rule!"
George Will: Obama Is An Expert At Selling Snake Oil |

In my post last Thursday (Obama plays blame game on stump) I described Obama as the "ultimate snake oil salesman" and today on ABC's This Week during the Round Table segment George Will used the same terminology in reference to the President. Being on the same wavelength with Mr. Will is humbling...but not so much that I won't point out my Thursday posting.

I will admit, though, that Obama being a snake oil salesman is not a unique thought. The latest polls show that 50% of the American people are totally unsatisfied with Obama's performance as President which goes to show that President Lincoln was right when he said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all the time." Not all, but a majority, of the people were fooled in November 2008 when they voted for a man with no executive experience, no history and no qualifications other than he could, given a good speech writer and modern electronics, speak eloquently. Buyer's remorse started building soon after January 20, 2009, and continues to this day with independent voters deserting him in droves and today only those who desire to be fooled by Obama are fooled and the rest of his Neo-Lib supporters are those who agree with his statist agenda and the socialist entitlement society that he espouses. 

The evidence of what he is was clear even before the 2008 election yet was purposely ignored by a Main Stream Media, which should more accurately be called the Left Stream Media as a result of its non-performance. Their drive and commitment to ensure the Obama's election was clear and sickening and I watched it then with disbelief. Today, whenever I watch the Left Stream Media I do so knowing that to believe what they report requires a suspension of disbelief. I don't need to hypothesize as to why the major media networks are doing their best to destroy the very country that allows them to operate with freedom because anyone who hasn't suspended their disbelief, and that is a majority of Americans if you look at the ratings, has already reached the same conclusion that I have. The Main/Left Stream Media is controlled and operated by Neo-Lib, left-wing ideologues who desire a socialist state rather than a nation that holds individual freedom as the true goal of the Constitution. Americans are starting to vote with their pocketbooks and ultra-leftwing newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post are feeling the pinch as is the most liberal of the networks, MSNBC. MSNBC's viewer base has been steadily shrinking and what is left is generally a coterie of mindless hardcore liberals with a few conservatives scattered in there as we watch it destroy itself with asinine political prognostications and inane commentary from the far-left, liberal fringe of idiots. The other major networks are not far behind, of course, but have some interesting entertainment programming which makes their news programs less important to their survival. And for them that is a good thing for their networks news teams and anchors are so ideologically driven and intellectually dishonest that they make Geraldo Rivera's "Al Capone's Safe Caper" look like a great news story.

Fortunately, is active in documenting the misrepresentations and outright lies of the Left Stream Media. I recommend you follow their site as it strips away the hyperbole and shines bright sunshine on their mendacity.
