BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL-AID TABLE
CHRISSY MATTHEWS TOSSED SOFTBALLS TO CELEBRITY CHIEF BARRY O WHO GOT EACH ONE LIKE A GOOD DOGGY AND HOWARD FINEMAN (THE HUFFINGTON POST) IS CALLING IT A "HUMBLER" BARRY O.
ISN'T THAT THE NAME OF A MALE CHASTITY DEVICE?

FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Next topic, are you an undocumented worker in the US? Better hope
you're related to the President of the United States. As his aunt and
uncle demonstrate, when you're related to him, even though you've been
ordered out of the country, you get to stay. Everybody else, the White
House insists, get out.
In his first term alone, he deported over 1.4 billion people. Wednesday morning, Cedric's "He can't stop lying" and Wally's "THIS JUST IN! HE LIES ABOUT EVERYTHING!"
-- joint-post -- noted an interesting development in Onyango Obama's
drunk driving case -- he told the judge that Barack lived with him for
three weeks. The White House had insisted, following Onyango Obama's
2011 drunk driving arrest, that Barack had never, ever met his uncle
(the only brother of Barack Obama Sr.).
Well pop goes the weasel!
Here's how Jeff Mason (Reuters) rushes to cover for Barack:
President Barack Obama
lived briefly with his Kenyan-born uncle while attending law school,
the White House said on Thursday, reversing earlier statements that
there was no record of the two men ever having met.
White House spokesman Jay
Carney said he clarified the issue with the president directly after
reports that Onyango Obama, who faced deportation from the United
States, said he had housed his nephew temporarily.
I know about the drunk driving only through Cedric and Wally's previous
coverage. It's not an 'issue' I follow. But even I knew that the White
House stated the two had never met.
You can be sure Barack Obama also knew the White House stated it.
Or is this another moment of, "Nobody told me!"
For two years, Barack let a lie stand. For two years, he refused to correct the record.
And now he's only doing it because his uncle's remarks in court leaked out.
Maria Sacchetti (Boston Globe) reminds:
In November 2011, a White House spokesman said he had no record of
the two ever meeting. The Washington Post had also reported that
scholars believed the two had never met.
The White House never moved to correct the record, until the
president’s famously private uncle took the witness stand in Boston
immigration court two days ago.
It's a lie.
That's not, "Impeach him! For lying!" But don't pretend that it didn't
happen. I'd actually be more forgiving if we were told the
clarification included a lie -- because this claim that he hadn't spoken
to the man in 10 years and hadn't been face-to-face with him in 20?
Barack groupie Bruce Springsteen has a song entitled "Highway Patrolman" (first appears on Nebraska):
Yeah me and Frankie laughin' and drinkin'
Nothin' feels better than blood on blood
Takin' turns dancin' with Maria as the band
Played "Night of the Johnstown Flood"
I catch him when he's strayin' like any brother would
Man turns his back on his family well he just ain't no good.
Barack had no blood relatives on the mainland (Hawaii's not the
mainland, love the state, have a home there, but it's not the mainland).
At that time or after. So to have an uncle in Boston when Barack's
living in Chicago and Barack has no contact with him?
Man turns his back on his family well he just ain't no good
Apparently 'Dreams of My Father' are safe because Daddy's dead but to
have your father's brother alive? You can use him when you're going to
college but you have no desire to make your own living blood relative on
the mainland part of your life? That's really sad.
But the lying part? To the American people, that's just unacceptable.
It's not crime, you can't be impeached for it. But it's really sad
that Barack is so unable to tell the truth. As Rebecca observed last night, noting Bruce A. Dixon's audio commentary for Black Agenda Report about Barack and Attorney General Eric Holder's remarks versus actions, "they just never stop lying, this administration."
Again, his latest lie? Not a crime, not an impeachable offense. It
does, however, go to pattern and it goes to character. There's a reason
he's polling so poorly and is considered untrustworthy.
Maybe Ann Dumham didn't teach him Aesop's fable about The Boy Who
Cried Wolf? Let's review it by way of a scene from season two of Kate & Allie,
the "Rear Window" episode written by Stu Hample -- Susan Saint James
played Kate, Jane Curtin played Allie and Fred Koehler played Chip.
Allie: Have you ever heard the story of the little boy who cried wolf?
Chip: Yeah, it's about a little boy who cried wolf.
Allie: A shepherd. The little shepherd went into the field one day
and he got bored so he cried wolf. And all the villagers came running.
Kate: Right and when they saw there was no wolf, they got mad and they went home.
Allie: And the next week, he went into the field again, and he got bored again and he cried wolf again
Kate: And all the villagers came and when they saw there was no wolf there, they really got mad and went home again.
Allie: But the next time there really was a wolf. And the little
boy cried wolf but nobody came. And the wolf ate the little boy.
In the wake of yesterday's NSA spying revelations, Barack wanted to
vouch for the NSA in an interview today, wanted people to believe him. Matthew Hoye (CNN) quotes Barack declaring, "I've said before and I will say it again, the N.S.A. actually does a
very good job about not engaging in domestic surveillance, not reading
people's emails, not- listening to their- the contents of their phone
calls. Outside of our borders, the N.S.A.'s more aggressive."
He wants to be believed.
After "If you like your plan, you can keep it." After misleading the
American public with a tale of never having met his uncle. After that
and so much more, he wants to be believed.
It's not that easy.
The lies that you tell
Will leave you alone
They'll keep you down
They'll catch you up and trip you up
Keep you hangin' around
