Skip to comments.Obama Circle 'Shaking with Laughter' Over Hilary Rosen Distraction
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.

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).
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.
We’ll see who has the LAST Laugh....
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 guess we’ll find out in November.
Nonsense. The lizard took a beating on the Rosen flap.
You’re a fraidy cat. Instead of worrying about what the lizard is going do to conservatives, why don’t you think about what you’re going to do to them. The female gap is an illusion composed of a 99% black women for the Kenyan.
Anne Kane: Sorry, I’m not buying your argument. If the Obama team is laughing it is bitter laughter at their own idiocy.
I guess “nonsense” is your favorite word to use when you are in denial.
Problem is, saying the word “nonsense” does not refute the lady’s well-thought out article.
Your’e right about that. He is dividing America up into classes and playing one against the other.
I have nothing to say to someone who thinks Dole or McCain were “something “. For pete’s sake put down the GOP koolaid.
I think the translation in French that you’re thinking of is “pour encourager les autres.” To encourage the others.
@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.
Re your post with smiling BHO and the Marxist quote, I would add, attributing it to him, "unless it's Islam, which is a special, divine story."
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.
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.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'.
(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.
Of course—— Ohaha despises the Christian religion.
The “opiate” comments must be passed far and wide.
Someobservers say Lenin’s use of the phrase led to his downfall.
I agree with you.
You are yelling at the wrong party.
Rosen f-ed up and we should chop her up into little pieces.
If the “smart ones” are not shaking in laughter, they are shaking their heads... The power and idiocy of a leftist slogan.
The answer’s obvious — The MSM office of Obama propaganda is solidly shilling for Democrats.
