Is he the grifter or the mark?

When you lose Jay Leno and David Brooks in the same day…  maybe you’re approaching a tipping point.  I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at Brooks’ “I’m an Obama Sapcolumn.  At least he manned up and came clean in a more straight-forward way than Peggy Noonan.

Leno though – no doubt you have to laugh:

After saying the jobs bill is paid for, President Obama now says that it will be paid for by raising taxes over 10 years. I can’t figure out if he’s the kind of guy who makes infomercials, or the kind of guy who falls for infomercials.

When a mainstream show that typically has to worry at least a little bit about political backlash – socially, at their cocktail parties, if nothing else – feels free to turn on you, take it as a sign that you might be “losing the room.”

    Mr Brooks totally ignored Barack Obama’s record (both his voting record – and his life and associations before being elected to office).

    Mr Brooks just believed the speeches that Barack Obama came out with in 2008 – speeches totally at odds with the man’s record (indeed with Barack Obama’s entire life).

    And, in spite of saying “I am a sap”, Mr Brooks STILL believes that Barack Obama has a good heart, that he is a man who wants to reach out and stop the out of control government spending on the “entitlement” schemes and so.

    Mr Brooks,. Barack Obama is not a middle of the road person – he was not when he was getting three hours ideological training from his mother every day (before he was even old enough to go to school), he was not (back in the United States) when he was being trained (whilst still a child) by Frank Marshall Davis, he was not when he was an active Marxist at Occedental College in California, he was not when he was going to (endless) Marxist conferences and events whilst at Columbia in New York.

    And Barack Obama was not a middle of the road person when he worked for DECADES with the Comrades in Chicago (not “just” Bill Ayers and “Rev” J. Wright, but many others also).

    Barack Obama is a Cloward and Piven spend the United States (indeed not just the United States – but the whole of the West, if he can) to desctruction person – his INTENTIONS are as bad as his proposed polices (his entire life and record show this).

    If you, Mr Brooks, still believe in Barack’s good heartedness then you are indeed a “sap” as you playfully call yourself. You want your readers to believe that you are not really a “sap” – but (as you clearly still believe in this vile man’s good intentions) a “sap” is clearly what you actually are.

      When will you learn to speak your mind Paul? lol. I don’t know if you also saw Peggy Noonan’s sorta-kinda- mea culpa awhile ago, but it was even less of one.
