Of course, they targeted Hollywood legend, Clint Eastwood, calling his performance “weird”, “addled” and “bizarre”; they scoffed at Ann Romney, suggesting she failed in her attempt to convince Americans of her and her husband’s humble beginnnings when they first married; and the best they could give Governor Romney was “solid”, “competent” and “unadventurous”.
But try as I may I can’t seem to find the liberal media talking about the following comments from Democratic icons post-RNC convention.
Left-wing rabble-rouser, Occupy Wall Street supporter, and documentary film maker, Michael Moore, said this two days ago: “People should start practicing the words “President Romney” because he is going to raise more money than Obama.
As one of the most unlikely Americans to predict an Obama defeat, after all he kicked Hilary Clinton to the curb in Obama’s favour in 2008, to admit that “Saviour” Obama can’t bring in the big dollars must be wrenchingly humbling for the bombastic Moore. He followed up with this anti-Christian remark:
“To assume that the other side are ignoramuses who are supported by people who believe that Adam
and Eve rode on dinosaurs 6,000 years ago is to completely misjudge the opposition”.
Nonetheless, Michael Moore’s prediction may be spot-on since Governor Romney, as the declared Republican presidential nominee, can start spending the millions of dollars he has been sitting on for months. Let the media blitz begin.
Even senior statesman and former President, Jimmy Carter, is endorsing Governor Romney. (Query whether this is good or bad for Romney?) Carter said “I’d be comfortable with Mitt Romney…as a moderate/progressive….he was fairly competent as Governor and running the Olympics….he’s a good solid family man.”
While internet inventor and former Vice-President Al Gore recently admonished his party colleagues that they can no longer “blame George W. Bush for everything”…we have serious problems in our democracy.” Ouch, that stings!
All in all, it’s been a bad week for Obama, topped off yesterday by a speech he gave at Fort Bliss, Texas to commemorate the withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Despite his linguistic virtuosity, the crowd offered little applause and embarrassing silences to talking points meant to elicit whoops and cheers.
It was no surprise to me that CNN and MSNBC quit their coverage of the speech before it finished, not wanting Americans to see their President unappreciated at best, or disregarded at worse.
