More Political Punditry…

Ahh, the stars of the show…

“President Obama’s speech to the United Nations has been called naive and even ‘post-American.’ It was something else, as well: the most extravagant excursion into self-worship we have yet seen in an American leader. Beware of politicians who claim to be ‘humbled by the responsibility the American people have placed upon me.’ It’s a neon sign flashing the opposite. And sure enough, in almost the next sentence, the president allowed that ‘I am well aware of the expectations that accompany my presidency around the world.’ Really? The whole world pulses with hope and expectation because Obama is president? People in Amsterdam, Sao Paulo and Taipei have a spring in their step because an Illinois Democrat won the White House?” –columnist Mona Charen

“America is 233 years old. Some think that there are ample accomplishments speaking to our character and cause that predate Obama’s ascension to the presidency. Feh, Obama seems to be saying. Look instead to our new greatness, for we have elected a man like him! Having anointed himself America’s vindicator and redeemer, Obama’s real purpose seems to be to become the leader not of the free world but, simply, the world.” –columnist Jonah Goldberg

“With President Obama presiding over ‘the historic session,’ the U.N. Security Council approved unanimously an American resolution committing all nations to work for — please sit up straight for this — a world free of nuclear weapons. Somewhere in the fine print was a clause praising small babies, little puppies and chocolate candy. The resolution was so harmless that even Russia, China and several ‘developing’ nations (the usual euphemism for the socialist satraps) voted for the resolution.” –columnist Wesley Pruden

“The president’s announcement that the United States would not deploy long-range missile defenses in Eastern Europe after all was astonishing because George W. Bush had negotiated so patiently with the Czechs and Poles, who took considerable risks in cooperating with Washington. … The Poles, Czechs and everyone else must hope that Obama got something from Russia in return. For now, the president looks more chump than champ. The president’s men made him look like a rube just off the turnip truck for how he gave the word to the Polish and Czech presidents, treating them to a midnight telephone call the night before he announced his decision. It looked like an afterthought, and probably felt that way, too.” –columnist Suzanne Fields

“Liberalism holds that there is no human problem that government can’t fix if only the right people are put in charge.” –former Alaska governor Sarah Palin

And then from the file non compos mentos we have…

Civil discourse 101: “The Republicans lie. They want to see you dead. They’d rather make money off your dead corpse. They kind of like it when that woman has cancer and they don’t have anything for her. That’s how the insurance companies make money, by denying the coverage.” –MSNBC’s Ed Schultz

Braying Jackass: “[T]his crazy anti-government talk [at town hall meetings] isn’t improving any body’s life. The clown show is over. It’s better now to look like you’re at least hopeful of getting a better health care plan for the country, even if you vote against it.” –MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

We hope not: “Do you think the president’s done a good enough job selling government as the solution?” –NBC’s David Gregory to Bill Clinton

The depth and seriousness of Leftmedia “journalism”: “Who would you want to swap lives with for a week?” –CBS’s Cali Carlin to Maggie Rodriguez, who answered, “Hands down, Michelle Obama.”

Defending indoctrination: “I mean, this is children. They’re singing a song. And I’m not clear myself. If you can make your point again about why this is indoctrination, political indoctrination to praise your president. I remember certainly in elementary school when Ronald Reagan was president and we sent him jelly beans. We designed all of these things about Ronald Reagan. We sent them to him. And I don’t think everybody in the class ended up a Republican because of that. … It’s about praising the president and making our country great again.” –MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell defending the video of New Jersey kids singing to BO — another video surfaced of kids in North Carolina doing likewise
