Bully for Bill O'Reilly! Liberal Media Establishment IS Heavily Invested in Re-electing Obama
Last night Bill O'Reilly made an important point that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC don't: the liberal media establishment is heavily invested in the re-election of President Obama, BECAUSE it would reflect badly on the liberal media establishment.
The liberal media establishment worked hard to elect Obama in 2008, and it will continue to work hard to re-elect him.
ABC enthusiastically promoted Obamacare after Obama was inaugurated and until it finally became law.
Obamacare turned out to be so unpopular that in 2010 the Republicans won control of the House of Representatives and enough additional Senate seats to be well positioned to win control of the Senate in 2012.
CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC pro-Obama bias is so blatant that Fox News appears to be conservative by comparison, even though it is more "fair and balanced" than any other network.
O'Reilly pointedly noted that the media had suggested that Newt Gingrich's reference to Obama as a food stamp president, Donald Trump's suggestion that Obama get off the basketball court and O'Reilly's own question to Obama about whether he was interested in football were racist.
The racist charge is a nonsensical reflexive defense of Obama defenders You only need to read the statistics to realize that the Obama Administration has been distributing food stamps to more people than ever, and you certainly don't have to be a (white) racist to play basketball or follow football.
Obama and the liberal media establishment will have their way UNLESS Obama receives the scrutiny he did not in 2007 and 2008.
The liberal media establishment didn't do it, and won't do it, and will savage those who do.
But, if some do not do it, then Obama's "fundamental transformation" of America will continue.
O'Reilly is right about the liberal media establishment and the reflexive playing of the race card to protect Obama, but he too has been presuming that Obama is an honest and honorable fellow.
The liberal media establishment did not do that with Richard Nixon after he was elected president and the media should not do it with any president.
As of today, it is predictable that the Republicans will hold the House of Representatives and win control of the Senate, but Obama will be re-elected and continue to implement Obamacare, despite the opposition of most Americans, and continue policies designed to transform America into a socialist state in which a substantial majority of the voters are subsidized by an income tax-paying minority.
In 2012 Obama will run for re-election against a particular Republican, not generic Republican.
In order to win, that Republican (or his or her supporters) will need to explode the myth that Obama is an honest and honorable fellow.
It IS doable, but it will require proof, not mere suspicion.
Obama's ties to ACORN and SEIU put him in the White House and, if the truth about him and them becomes generally known in time, Obama will be a one-term president.
Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe exposed ACORN as a sinister organization, but they did not tie Obama to it and Obama cleverly separated himself from ACORN in the public perception.
For the truth about Obama, ACORN and SEIU to thwart Obama's re-election, ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief's story that was killed by The New York Times in October 2008 needs to become general knowledge. It needs to be known by all voters, not just fans of MonCrief and Michelle Malkin, and it needs to be told by an ex-radical insider, not researchers who write books that ignore the connection between ACORN/Project Vote and the Obama presidential campaign.
If the myth is not exploded, the Billion Dollar Re-election Candidate for whom the race card is regularly played and in whom the liberal media establishment is heavily invested can win. He's not Jimmy Carter and he won't be running against Ronald Reagan. (He won't be running against Newt Gingrich either; the Republicans won't make THAT mistake.)
