Obama Circle 'Shaking with Laughter' Over Hilary Rosen Distraction
http://www.americanthinker.com ^ | april 14 2012 | anne kane

Posted on 04/14/2012 8:48:46 AM PDT by Para-Ord.45

Set em' up, take em' down. Did you ask yourself why Obama, Biden, Axelrod, and leftists of all stripes appeared to side with the pro-Ann Romney camp? Did it make you stop and think? Or did you buy into the distraction?

Crazy headlines like "Obama Throws Hilary Rosen Under the Bus" make you wonder why he would do that to someone who visited the White House 35 times since he became president.

It's because he isn't really throwing her under the bus; he's just saying he is.

Republicans wonder why Obama's buddies keep getting to set the narrative.

The answer's obvious -- the Republicans keep taking the bait. Throwing out chum to the chattering classes is right out of the Democrat consultant and Mao admirer Anita Dunn's strategy to sidetrack us from the destructive transformative policies this administration has put in place.

Nonsense. The Rosen - Romney flap was big loss for the Kenyan lizard. The fluker flap was a big loss as well. The lizard’s occupier scum are just trying to laugh it off.

ps.

I’m not crazy about Mitt, but Ann is OK with me

Sometimes I wish the Republicans would put both the economic and social issues on the back burner. We probably need to spend 4 years just HAMMERING the propaganda industry, the media, and the educational establishment. Just expose them all as manipulative liars with no principles of any kind.

We aren't going to fix the economic or social problems until the sheeple smarten up and realize how deeply immoral our society has become.

Fluck, Rosen and “Trayvon” aren’t going to help them in November. It’s still the economy and jobs. Our guys need to remember that during their campaigns. Don’t let the commie ‘RATS change the subject. Stay focused on the Obama regime.

I think the biggest accomplishment we could make as conservatives would be to discredit the media. I’d like to see someone do a series of serious sit down interviews with some of the younger Katie Couric and Matt Lauer wannabees and ask them what they think they are doing by promoting the Marxist attitudes of the Chicago political revolutionaries.

“Stay focused on the Obama regime.”

1,000% CORRECT, FF. These are all *distractions* and *smokescreens* to divert attention from 0bummer&Co’s p-poor record on everthing. The sheeple are buying into it, bigtime, deftly-guided by the LSM’s 24x7 propaganda networks.

The Republicans have no agenda — because they have no ideas beyond a hankering to be in power. They have no idea where they want to take the country, except “not -Obama”, which is not a program.

You can’t beat something with nothing.

Obama threw her under the bus, because Obama is ruthless. He feels no loyalty to his followers, he is the supreme narcissist. He would run over his own grandmother to get what he wants. How quick he did it just reveals his true character. A true leader in the American tradition does not act this way. All politics aside, some loyalty to the underlings is warranted by any President. This move was done for his own selfish reasons, and it was aimed at his own, as an example for the others. It sounds better in French, but I couldn’t find the translation.

The strategy is accomplishing three things

1. The distractions of “ pay your fair share “ , “ Ann Romney never worked a day in her life “ engender and incite those in the middle with no concrete ideology into agreeing on a visceral and emotional level.
The WH strategy is to split off the most undecided and independent votes however possible using whatever tactic that will work and that tactic is appealing to man`s base nature of hate , anger , envy, covetousness.

2. As they split off as many independents as possible it also keeps the topic off of Barry/Hussein`s disastrous record, both foreign and domestic.

3. It forces the RINO GOP to react and remain on the defensive.The WH sets the tone and tenor of debates, the GOP go along willingly.

Why is it that the Dems seem to be able to say/do any dumb thing they want, then, when called on it just laugh it off with no consequence from either the MSM (okay, I get that one...) or the so-called leaders of the GOP? Yet when a conservative makes a “gaff” - major (in the minds of the Dems and the MSM) or minor (in reality) the call is “off with their heads!!” and the fearless leaders of the GOP don’t come to their defense but immediately back away from that person while bowing and scraping and wringing their hands.

Who says we have to “play nice?” The leaders of the Democratic party are like the bully on the playground. If you cower and back away, they will continue to shake you down for your lunch money. The only way to stop them is to call them out and punch them in the nose....

Not true. We were beaten by nothing in 1992 and 2008. Sometimes in politics, nothing beats something. Something can be picked apart, while nothing, think Hope and Change, inspires the sheep.

That`s only temporary.

Hilary Rosen is a top Barry/Hussein lieutenant having visited the WH 35 times.

Unless a neo-marxist renounces their ideological religion they`ll always be part of the team.

She`ll still be invited to the elite`s cocktail party inside the beltway and be told how much they admire her for standing up to the Right and saying what “everyone” thinks.

I think the lizard’s minions have been thrown back on the defensive.

RomneyCare is self made rich and Ann is a poor choice to make a “woman of privilege”. Especially when the First Wookie vacations in Spain on the taxpayers dime.

The 2012 Ohaha's are gonna use the 2008 Anita (Mao) Dunn strategy to manipulate voters, to downplay Ohaha'sthe destructive policies ....and his scary plans for the next term. Dunn has said THEY and only THEY decided what the media should know about 2008 candidate Ohaha. The strategy is already in place---watch the Ohahas copping that "don't worry--we're harmless" attitude.

===================================================

Ohaha had two major pieces of legislation which were supposed to fuel his reelection: (1) the trillions dollar stimulus which bombed, and, (2) the healthcare mandate which could soon be kaputski or partially disemboweled by the USSC.

=========================================================

Obama's open mic slip in Russia revealed his hidden agenda. He didnt say "after the election, or “after the next election.” He said: “This is my last election" ....... reassuring the Ruskis that he'll then have "more flexibility after the election....”

Clearly Ohaha's certainty WRT staying in offce is not based on his approval ratings or massive opposition to his cockamamie polices----mandated healthcare, trillion dollar stimulus, using aborted babies' brains in lab experiments, giving himself massive executive power over Americans, co-opting religious beliefs, $4-Plus gas, 16% real unemployment, trillion dollardeficits, escalating inflation at the supermarket, the GSA spending scandal......to name a few.

No. Ohaha's certainty stems from his knowledge that he will stay in office---not by the will of the people---but by buying his reelection, using unprecedented vote fraud.

FIRST AND FOREMOST----WE MUST ATTACK THE MASSIVE
VOTER FRAUD OHAHA INTENDS TO USE TO GET REELECTED.

Remember, voter fraud is the Chi/mobs' specialty---do NOT underestimate Rahm and Axelrod (both running O's reelection), and Valerie whatsherface in the WH.

Let us not forget----the minute they hit the WH, the Chi/mob went into action: the WH Chi/mob took over the census---and now have all the CV they need to file phony FEC reports using stolen federal dollars as campaign contributions.

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD Obama's ex-COS "Wall Street Rahm" "suddenly" discovered he wanted to be Chicago's mayor---the little turd went before the mics and announced his campaign "raised $10 million in just a few weeks." Rahm also controlled the US Treasury as COS. This turd-o-crat knows where all the stolen Federal money is hidden....Wall Street knows how to make money disappear faster than a cream puff at a Weight Watcher weigh-in.

=================================================

Do not underestimate the cash the Ohahas/Chi-mob can come up with to fix the election......remember, these are the kingpins of Chicago politics. At one time, conscientious FEC investigators verified money was coming from legal citizens....but if Obama wins there will be no investigations. Remember, there are billions unaccounted for in Obama's stimulus packages (probably used in the last election cycle).....you can be sure the Ohaha kingpins have tons of money stashed away for 2012.

==================================================

POINTS TO PONDER

<><> author Dean Koontz estimates there's about $90 billion missing from the US Treasury.

<><> Ohaha's ex-COS Chi/Mayor Rahm Emanuel is running the reelection campaign----b/c this Wall Street turd knows where all the money is hidden. Rahm also controlled all US Treasury assets (at Obama's behest) when he was COS.

<><>The Ohahas took control of the census upon taking office----they have all the necessary CV to phony up contribution reports for the FEC.

=======================================

WATCH FOR PHONY FEC REPORTS The Ohaha's "say" they added $45 million to reelection coffers in February.....raised jointly by the DNC, "Obama for America" and two other joint fundraising committees — the "Obama Victory Fund" and the "Swing State Victory Fund,"...and whatever other voter frauds they dream up.

With a little more creativity, just about any distraction can be turned around to make the small government point. In this case, the point is made by Rosen that person “A” does not have insight into what it is like to be person “B”. But this is true of Senators and farmers, city and rural life, etc. Which means that “Government” is a bunch of people making decisions that affect lives they don’t relate to or understand. Which is why government needs to remain small as possible and interfere as little as possible in all these different lives they don’t know a thing about as to what is needed or what works and doesn’t work. (This gets the distraction back to the point of small government).

It's the Sister Souljah moment.

Straight out of the Clinton playbook.

I'm not sure it was an abandonment of Rosen, though. She embarrassed herself -- made herself look ridiculous -- and Obama & Co. distanced themselves from her.

There may be a job or some perk for her down the road for taking the fall on this -- some quiet and discrete payoff that compensates her without bringing the White House negative attention.

The Demonrats do set the narrative. It’s like a play in which various actors are assigned parts.

Friday it was, “O.K., Hillary Rosen, you’re on. Give ‘em your one liner about Ann Romney.”

We’re the audience, and we react with a predictable knee-jerk response. Yes, they are running the show. The inmates have taken over the asylum.

The author of the article, Anne Kane, made her point in the article far more effectively than can be dismissed by your off-the-wall comments.

You totally underestimate the political team that has focused-grouped and polled this distraction, which issue they would never have brought up had they not calculated brings them far more votes than it costs them.

Yes, conservatives such as you just blow off the truth because you can’t deal with the idea that your opposition really does know what they are doing, no matter how many times they prove it in elections.

Its like you never even read and thought about what the article actually said, and said very convincingly.

I've got a little different view on it all myself...

@IMO, and only IMO, the real desire (and outcome) in this whole sordid episode is to drive votes to Mittens and away from Gingrich with "sympathy votes".
"Awwww, they're picking on his wife!"
And people will foolishly do just what this administration wants and vote with their hearts instead of using their heads and thinking this thing through.

I do agree that's it's all distraction.

Do they really think that every Conservative is distracted and breathlessly waiting for the next comment on this one subject??

Please!! We are a lot smarter than that! How ridiculous!

Look around here at FR...how many articles are about the Rosen/Ann subject...a few?

We just add it to the list of Democrat-Commie slip ups...all they did was tell us what they really think of women.....

And that would be that women who stay at home are useless and worthless and are too stupid to have an opinion about economics.

Absolutely correct on all points.

But I think I'm seeing some chinks appearing in Barry O'Dummie's hold on *some* in the MSM. Besides the usual suspects like the DNC wholly owned pMSNBC kooks and the New York Slimes communists, a 'few' in the (cough) 'legit MSM' seem to be rebelling and not swallowing the BS being fed to them by the pathological liar, Jay Carney(1).

I can't recall all these 'journalists' names but from what I see and read the WH Press Briefings - Conferences are getting testier and testier and no longer like a sunny stroll in the park for 'poor little Jay'(2).

So IMHO 2012 won't be 'exactly' like 2008 for Barry. Granted the MSM won't go after him like Glenn Beck (GBTV) still does or Andrew Breitbart did and would if alive, but they're all not sitting there waiting for the Obama Gang to throw them a doggy treat for being good little lapdogs either.

And Barry's new little gimmick of making them use only 'Government Issued Computers' to file their reports just may be 'A Bridge Too Far' for the regime. Kool-Aid can wear off, the Rose Colored Glasses can come off. and taking all the journalists electronic toys away(3) can result like 'A Liberal Getting Mugged'.

footnotes
(1) As poor as it is CBS has been doing some factual reporting on Gun-Walker (Fast and Furious).
(2) IIRC it's Jake Tapper of ABC who is now 'rebelling' the most during Jay's little fantasy WH briefings and others have followed up after him.
(3) All Cell Phones, iPads, Blackberrys, Laptops, Cameras, etc. are now being confiscated at the door of the room where the Gubmint Computers are that they must use.

This author is either a Democrat operative or a jackass or both. This was a BIG loss for the Left. It was a great week for us and a terrible week for them. First the Fla. GOP out slicks the Sharpton/Jackson team by giving them everything they demanded in such a way as to insure the case won't go to court before the election and Zimmerman walks when it does, then they use a dyke who is “separated from her partner” (don't you just love That line?)to attack a stay at home mother who raised 5 kids beat breast cancer and has MS. Nobody on our side could have written that in a script with a straight face. As I said this author is a jackass.
