Liberals can’t stand a challenge. When confronted with unpleasant truths, they either run away or place their hands over their ears and blather – “la la la la la … I can’t hear you.”
I got a note today in my email from Nicholas Dungan, author of a decent biography of Gallatin – reviewed here some time ago. At one point I was going to do an interview, I never got around to the interview but in the process of corresponding with him, I ended up on his PR mailing list. Anyway, in this email, he sent me a link to Susan Eisenhower’s latest blog post, in which she endorses Barak Obama.
The piece itself is typical liberal effete. There were numerous fawning responses from the liberal echo chamber, extolling how brilliant and well-thought out her position was.
I decided to leave a comment in answer to one of these sycophantic responses in which the commenter actually extolls Mr. Obama’s character – comparing him to Ike:
As usual you are spot on. IKE would be proud of you. What the Gov. lacks and what IKE and the Prez. have is CHARACTER. Justice Stewart defined pornography as “you know it when you see it”. Certainly do not see it with the Gov. You must listen to the IKE- JFK tapes re: the Cuban Missile Crisis —— so amusing and so endearing. Shall relay your message to many friends. Carter Cunningham
After throwing up a little bit, I said:
How disappointing – I still Like Ike.
For Mr. Cunningham to suggest that President Obama has character is simply astounding. His actions over the course of the previous 4 years make it abundantly clear the charter member of the “choom” gang is bereft of character.
While the press is doing their level best to provide cover for Mr. Obama and his administration’s inexcusable behavior during the Benghazi consulate attack – read the timelines – the news is slowly getting out.
Ike would be appalled. For that reason alone, I am dumbfounded as to how any relation of Ike’s would support Obama. Can you seriously imagine Ike ignoring the pleas for help of Americans under siege? Obama has continually demonstrated his disdain for America’s military, and its power.
To which I received the following erudite responses from other commenters:
Now, name five things President Obama did to help our country.
While veryslowwriter had this to say:
None of what you say is true. Please investigate some news sources other than Fox News and its acolytes.
Stupid me, I took the time to compose a reasoned response to each, enumerating a long list of facts, detailing Quantitative Easing, the chronic unemployment which has been exacerbated by the Obama administration, and the excesses of the DOJ. I also gave concrete facts pertaining to Benghazi.
Ms. Eisenhower didn’t bother to approve either of these two responses. It isn’t that she isn’t watching, numerous other comments have shown up since my responses. Now, I don’t care if she doesn’t want to post my comments, but it is a typical example of liberal
open-mindedness. I won’t waste any more time there. I will let them enjoy their echo-chamber in peace.
Two days later my responses showed up. We will give Ms. Eisenhower the benefit of the doubt. However, I find it interesting that they did not show up until much later, and there were many, many more comments.
