You know my favorite part of Barack Obama’s response to the lipstick bungle? It’s this obnoxious phrase, which hasn’t been remarked upon much today:
“I don’t care what they say about me but I love this country too much to let them take over another election…”
Yes, yes, because Obama is Truth, Justice, and the American Way! And all who dare mock him or challenge his Absolute Moral Authority suffer from patriotism deficiency.
He loves his country so much he sent his lawyers to stifle the free speech of television stations running ads critical of his terror ties.
He loves his country so much he slimed investigative journalist Stanley Kurtz and pushed his cult followers to shut down Chicago radio station WGN and host Milt Rosenberg, who probed Obama’s ties to terrorist Bill Ayers and his failed educational projects.
And then he goes and complains about “lies and phony outrage and Swift Boat politics.”
Such a selfless champion of our great nation.
I’m reminded of that old quote attributed to William Randolph Hearst: “A politician will do anything to keep his job, even become a patriot.”
“I don’t care what they say about me,” sayeth The One.
Then what’s he doing running to Letterman to carp about what They said?
