Where were these guys a week ago?
Posted by: McQ on Monday, November 10, 2008

As Rob B. of "Pundit Review Radio" says, a week after the election we're being treated to "born again" journalism as the media suddenly finds it in itself to begin questioning some of the Obama premises after it's too late to do anything about them.

An example:
At some point, higher taxes are inevitable to bring the deficit back in line, and Obama’s plan to limit the increases to the rich aren’t likely to be enough.

That is the sort of sacrifice we must make to resolve the crisis.

The economy is too precarious to endure tax increases to stabilize our finances right now, and some of the ambitious programs outlined on the campaign trail will have to be sacrificed to fiscal prudence.

We must make sacrifices at the personal level, too, by reducing our use of credit and curtailing our spending, building our savings so that we are better prepared.
Yes friends, it is sacrifice time. Government helped get you into the mess and it is your job to sacrifice more to get us out. And since, thanks to the Clinton administration, we've all learned that "sacrifice" is a code word for higher taxes, bend over and grab your ankles. Because in order for the government to 'stimulate' the economy, it must have sacrifices at its altar increased, er, it must find the funds somewhere.

And as our media friend above finally acknowledges, "increases to the rich aren’t likely to be enough."

You don't say?

You mistake the intent of the piece.

The media has now gone from being Obama’s cheerleaders and water carriers to Obama "fluff girls".

For those that dont understand the reference a fluff girl is a woman who preps the male porn star before he gets in front of the camera.

Only instead of prepping the sticker they are prepping the stickee.

The media will be talking more and more about the need for higher taxes to indoctrinate the American people so that when Obama raises their taxes noone will be suprised.

Funny that Pravda and Izvestia worked their propaganda at the point of a gun whereas our media does it willingly. Isn’t that more scary?

pedro is extremely disturbed that senor obama set no preconditions in his meeting with a freedom hating warmongering dicator this morning. pedro knew he’d be disappointed in the end, but pedro didn’t realize it would happen so soon.

god bless amedika.

Hey McQ, thanks for the mention...it’s maddening that these "journalists" Lewinsky’d Obama across the finish line, and now that they’ve succeeded in getting "The One" elected, suddenly they’ve morphed into cynical, hard-bitten journalists, in some hopeless attempt to salvage some shred of integrity and credibility. Don’t bother, guys, it ain’t working.

Here’s a counterproposal: two dollars reduction in non-defense government spending for every dollar of additional tax revenue. Non defense spending frozen at this level for the remainder of Obama’s term.

The budget, excluding Social Security and Medicare, can be balanced. Our pigs and their pigs don’t want to. I’m not interested in sacrificing more of my money while my government pays millions in farm subsidies to large corporations. These are the same liars who define cuts as less of an increase than asked for.

Now they are talking about stealing people’s 401Ks. They just whitewashed the proposal for mandatory "voluntary" service. I can’t wait to hear what gets proposed after Obama takes office.

That was pretty much the deal under Reagan. Of course, the Democrat Coongress cranked up the domestic spending, spending $1.35 for each dollar of revenue increase caused by the rate cuts and the resluting growing economy. Had the Democrats actually held to their end of the deal, the deficit would have been gone by 1990.

Why am I to suppose they’ll be different, this time?

As usual, retired military hits the nail on the head (and using the term "fluffer" to refer to the MSM in its relationship with us with regard to The Annointed One is priceless). We’re seeing a continuation of the same propaganda campaign that we’ve been subjected to for months. Years, really: everything under Bush was terrible, so terrible that ONLY electing The Annointed One could turn the country around, and he’s going to have to ask us to "sacrifice" to fix things and make our country whole again.

O’ course, neither The Annointed One or any of his stooges will consider the kind of sacrifice suggested by MarkD: the only people who have to sacrifice are the working, tax-paying people in this country who are going to be asked to "sacrifice" ever-larger chunks of their pay to fund the kind of change that The Annointed One and the libs want.

Well, now that the election is over, the press has to move on to lower expectations.

Hey! Do you mean that you believed Obama when he said all those things? That he would create "millions of green jobs"? That he would "pay for college for everyone who wants to attend"? That he would bring "health care to everyone"?

Just what is wrong with you people? CNN and MSDNC said during the campaign that Obama’s promises were his word, because he has such a lengthy track record of keeping his word, and his extremely long legislative career shows that he can "get things done."

My, oh my, are you people weird. Give the man a break. He will keep all of those promises - like taking our guns away, like shutting down tens of thousands of jobs at coal plants, like making sure all the terrorists at Gitmo go free.

Maybe you haven’t been reading his agenda. Check it out right here.

Then again, it looks like someone scrubbed his entire website of an "agenda."

My bad.

Finally, the journalists and some of the illuminati MSM are finished campaigning for Obama and they can be honest and start telling the truth even when it doesn’t benefit OBAMA!
