Fascinating: Obama Says Fiscal Commission “Provides Framework For Conversation” While Rejecting All Of Its Recommendations

Obama spoke before an uncharacteristically skeptical press corps to introduce his new budget.

Speaking to reporters for just over an hour, Obama attempted to convince the nation that he took deficit reduction seriously, but at least from the initial response, Obama didn’t appear to convince the reporters.

Chuck Todd asked the question, “What was the point of the Fiscal Commission”, and Obama answered that “the notion that it has been shelved is incorrect, it still provides a framework for conversation”.

What abject nonsense. Does this mean if we’ll wait three weeks, he’ll adopt the Fiscal Commission’s recommendations?

It makes no sense that Obama would bring up Egypt, unless he thinks it’s a somehow winning issue for him, personally –  “great news for the President” , and deflects attention away from his crummy budget – what a ridiculous stretch.

Paul Ryan told Mark Levin that Obama didn’t put any of the Fiscal Commission’s recommendations in his budget, saying his budget is to the left of the recommendations, and makes the fiscal crisis worse.

Ryan nails it – Obama’s budget is “an abdication of leadership”.

Ace of Spades HQ: Oh Boy: Obama Sets Gutless-Punk Cocksucker Political Trap and GOP Walks Into It

But, here’s the thing: The GOP is walking into the trap because they know it’s the right thing to do for America and the gutless cocksucker who’s supposedly our president refuses to lead.

Basically, Obama is going to run a platform of irresponsibility and future disaster because he trusts Americans are so stupid they’ll reward him for it. And of course the problem with this strategy — for us — is that it is 88% likely he’s right.

Do I believe in Americans anymore? Less and less each day that passes. I’m kind of tired of conservatives trumpeting American exceptionalism because America seems in short supply of it. Scratch your average “exceptional America” and you find an ordinary decline-and-decay European soft “I want mine” socialist beneath.

So, Obama, having abdicated his responsibility of prudence, leadership, intelligence or idealism (this either proves he is stupid or profoundly cynical), has forced the out-party House of Representatives to take a leadership role — a role for which they aren’t well suited, not because of a lack of individual ability, but because the Constitution is expressly designed for a government led by the President.

But that’s what the cocksucker has decided to do — you guys propose necessary entitlement reforms; I’ll just demagogue against then and walk my way into relection.

Video: Beck Obsessed Tingles and Boehlert Deflect and Project On Hardball

Uninformed pejoratives have become Chris Matthews’ specialty these past few years. Ever notice how people who know more than he does are always “very crazy”, coo-coo, out to lunch, conspiracy theorists?

This from a guy who recently compared the Muslim Brotherhood to the tea party movement.

Can somebody please buy the guy a clue? Why does it always have to be me?

I’ve already dealt with the not new, not surprising links between the left and radical Islam.

Trevor Loudin recently uncovered  documentation of how radical Islam was being used by the Marxist, Leninist left in Egypt:

Below  are experts from a circa  2008 document by Egyptian Trotskyist Hossam El-Hamalawy, on how his comrades have worked to unite the Egyptian left and to “court” the Muslim Brotherhood in recent years. This has been a worldwide Trotskyist pattern for more than a decade.

Bear in mind that this document is around three years old.
From campus fistfights in the 1990s to joint demonstrations in 2005–2006, relations between the Muslim Brothers and the radical left in Egypt have come a long way. In settings where the two tendencies operate side by side, like student unions and professional syndicates, overt hostility has vanished, and there is even a small amount of coordination around tactics. Still, the cooperation remains symbolic, and leftists and Islamists have yet to join forces to undertake sustained mass actions against their common foe, the regime of President Husni Mubarak.

The improvement of leftist-Islamist relations can largely be traced to two factors. First is the evolution of a new left in Egypt whose two main pillars are the Revolutionary Socialist Organization and a growing left-leaning human rights community. This new left has different attitudes toward Islamism than those held by the previous “communist waves.” Second is the generational change within both the left and the Brotherhood cadres spurred by the revival of Egyptian street politics, thanks to the second Palestinian intifada.

Read the whole thing. I suspect that Beck has referred to this report on his show, because that’s what Beck does. He does the research, connects the dots on his chalkboard, and often shows videos that prove his assertions.

Chris Matthews and his enablers just cast aspersions and name-call. They don’t like that the radical left is being linked to radical Islam, so they deflect:

Matthews: “Is it his mental condition, his emotional condition, is it good merchandising”

Matthews: “He takes them all the way to Pluto!”

And they project:

Matthews: “There’s never any evidence presented…” Really?…He spends an hour on his show, every day explaining his theories, and again, often showing videos that prove his point. He also advises his audience to not take his word for it –  they can find documentation for themselves to back up what he’s saying.

What do these guys have to prove that Glenn Beck is wrong? They spend their hour name-calling.

Boehlert simpers; “Every new revelation proves he’s right…” Like Climate change alarmism? Every type of weather  proves they’re right…

Beck, slightly behind the curve on the Muslim Brotherhood/CPAC story,  gets pilloried for merely questioning the reports that the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated the conservative movement. Apparently he’s not supposed to question the story, he’s supposed to reject it outright like these ignoramuses do.

Here is a long memorandum written by Frank Gaffney to the ACU, which powerfully makes the case of infiltration within the conservative movement, in five parts:

1) How the MB’s Infiltration of the Conservative Movement Began

2) A Son of the Brotherhood

3) Khan’s Job

4) What ‘Right Outcome’?

5) Khan’s Recent Activities and Influence Operations

The Bottom Line

The foregoing litany comprises but a partial rendering of the problem we confront. Yet, it illustrates what a sophisticated, sustained influence operation looks like in an open society like ours. At a minimum, I hope you agree that it provides ample grounds for the American Conservative Union to “worry” about the extent to which it has been penetrated and manipulated by Suhail Khan and his enablers.

These individuals are now increasingly brazen in their aggressive pursuit of the Muslim Brotherhood’s overarching goal – eliminating and defeating our civilization from within, by our own hands. Such a divide-and-conquer strategy is certainly evident in, and being advanced by, campaigns these so-called “conservatives” have been mounting on behalf of initiatives that are anathema to most bona fide conservatives.

Does Chris Matthews own a computer? Is he completely incapable of researching a topic before he goes on these hour long rants?

The man is clearly slipping into dementia, and allowing professional dissemblers like David Corn and Eric Boehlert to hasten his fall. What a sad spectacle.


This Red Eye exclusive on Media Matters is tragic….poor Eric!
