AMAZING!!! The Cover of Liberal Newsweek Magazine   22 comments

Is that a light at the end of the tunnel? Is it possible that our nation may start self-analyzing why 51% couldn’t see how really, really bad this president is? Is it possible that we’re going to start a conversation about what is wrong with a country that could elect him in the first place and how we back away from that huge pile of stupidity?

It’s a tiny little glimmer of hope in a enormous arena of bad. If the liberal press is starting to wake up about Obama, it is possible they will wake up about other things — maybe — I pray.

Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the “protective wall” built around him by the liberal media….

‘Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall [he fell down & broke his crown…
All the kings horses and all the kings men, couldn’t put Humpty together again….’

  1. I find it hilarious that conservatives are still circulating this.

    “Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama.”

    Well, not so much. The cover is actually from last year, when there actually still WAS a Newsweek magazine. (It ceased publication at the end of 2012, indicating just how much influence it actually had.) And the Newsweek article wasn’t written by Patterson; it was written by a British history professor who had worked for John McCain and who was supporting Mitt Romney in the then-upcoming election. In case you don’t believe me, you can start your research with your buddy Joe’s favorite source:

    Patterson did write the piece included here, but it never appeared in Newsweek. He wrote it for The American Thinker (a conservative website) way back in 2011. Oh, and he proclaims himself to be “one of America’s most interesting conservatives” on his own website.



    • Not all that hilarious when you consider that Obama is possibly the worst president in 100 years. Carter even looks pretty good in comparison. He started out his first term apologizing to countries whose citizens were trying to kill us and now he’s starting his second term by spying on our allies and got caught doing it.

      I suspect that history will vindicate what I am saying. This president is a ill-qualified arrogant narcissist and we should be ashamed as a nation that we gave him a second term.


      • “we should be ashamed as a nation that we gave him a second term”

        He wasn’t my first choice when we elected him the first time, and I didn’t vote for him the second time. (Nor did I vote for Romney. Republicans should be ashamed, too, for their inability to come up with a credible opponent.)

        In my opinion it’s too early to judge where Obama (or Bush) ranks among presidents. But I’m certainly not a fan of either, nor of the gutless wonders in Congress who approved the Patriot Act. Here’s my latest blog take on Obama:

        The sad think about many conservative efforts to attack Obama is that they resort to goofy stuff like birtherism and the phony composite above, rather than focusing on the very real problems with Obama and the rest of government. Thanks.


      • But you can’t even get the most basic facts right about the author or the publisher. THAT is what’s so hilarious. You even repeat the old Tea Party chestnut about Obama “apologizing” – something that never happened in fact. Try finding a quote or a video if you doubt it. You’re entitled to your opinion about Obama and his presidency of course, but if you’re that bad on the facts why should anyone trust your opinion?


      • Hi, Nick! Welcome. Well, first, I should have fact-checked that item before I reposted it from someone else’s blog because there are serious errors with it. I left it up because I don’t like to avoid my mistakes. It seems inauthentic to me when others take down their errors, so I try not to, even though I am tempted.

        Second, it’s a matter of interpretation, I suppose, as to whether or not President Obama “apologized” for America. Right after the first inauguration, he went on a tour of Europe where he made comments that could be interpreted as apologizing for past American behavior. In France he said “In American, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.” He made similar statements in Prague, Turkey and South America. During that same tour, he was filmed appearing to bow (rather deeply and deliberately) to Saudi King Abdullah and later to the Emperor of Japan.

        Now you could argue that he was merely trying to soften the American tone overseas and show respect to other world leaders and citizens of other countries. He never said the word “apologize” or “we’re sorry”, so you could argue that he didn’t intend to apologize. I look at the message that was received. Friends of mine in Germany, England and Australia all interpreted the message as he was apologizing for American arrogance toward Europe. A friend who is originally from Egypt who lives here in the United States took that bow as a sign of deference to King Abdullah. He explains that the bow is quite different from President Bush holding hands with Crown Prince Abdullah (I think we’re talking about the same person, actually; he has since inherited the rule). Men holding hands as they walk through a public venue in Arab culture is a sign of equality, acceptance, and a pledge of lifelong friendship. It’s a high honor when the future king of a country is willing to do that with the leader of another country. It’s the equivalent of becoming blood brothers. The bow, on the other hand, is a signal that the one doing the bowing (and the country he represents) is of lower status than the one he is bowing to. Maybe President Obama didn’t know that or maybe that was the message he meant to send. I don’t know. It’s the message that was received by many in the Arab world.

        So, “apology tour” or international public relations tour that made America look weak and obsequious … it depends on your interpretation, but yes, the tour did happen. And, I have presented you with a quote and a photograph.

        To balance that — I’d say the drone attacks on Al Qada leaders that sometimes kill innocent Arabs, the spying on European leaders, the Fast-and-Furious campaign that violated Mexican territorial sovereignty, the possible CIA arms dealing out of Benghazi … these wipe away any impression of apology or deference. You can draw your own conclusions whether I think that’s a good thing or not. You’ll find the answer in other pieces that I’ve posted.

        Thanks for commenting.


    • Hey you leftist fool. Here is the truth: The opinion piece referenced above was penned by Matt Patterson and was published (under the title “Obama: The Affirmative Action President”) on the American Thinker web site on 18 August 2011
      So before you go spinning lots of bullshit like the rest of your stupid friends and political hacks, get your facts right. Then buy a ticket to Russia and stay there, you dumb ass.


      Charles Manson so tell me where you live
  2. Oh, gee. The RNL pulled the post — without explanation or correction, of course — after it had more than 30 comments. Quite the credible site you’re reblogging. 🙂


  3. I could pull it, but that would be avoiding my own mistakes and I usually don’t do that.

    The point of the article is a correct one, however. Obama is a disaster as president. I don’t think Romney would have been substantially better, though he would have been less socially divisive than Obama. The last thing the country needs is yet another progressive in the White House. We need a president who is committed to cutting the budget by 40-50% over a period of 5-6 years, including reducing both military spending and entitlements and costly regulations — someone who will stay committed to that goal even if the polls go against him and regardless of what Congress might do.

    The chances of this country electing such a candidate before a deep decade-long REAL depression hits is not high. Even if we elected such a person in 2016, it might be too late to bring us back from that brink. We may already be so far gone fiscally that the only remaining choice is to hit bottom and try to salvage something from the wreckage at remains. After we do hit bottom, I think we’ll see the American people waking up and voting for a whole string of such presidents — if our creditor nations let us maintain our sovereignty anyway.


  4. “We need a president who is committed to cutting the budget by 40-50% over a period of 5-6 years, including reducing both military spending and entitlements and costly regulations — someone who will stay committed to that goal even if the polls go against him and regardless of what Congress might do.”

    The problem with that, of course, is that Congress passes the budget (though of course the president has veto power). And most conservatives are no more willing to cut military spending than most liberals are entitlements.

    As for Americans waking up and electing anything other than the latest little-known “outsider,” you’re more confident than I am.


    • I’m not confident at all. I think since we’ve elected Barack Obama to the presidency twice, the American people have proven they’re beyond foolish. I’m saying what we need, not what we’re going to get.

      it does have to be an outsider because any Beltway insider is going to owe too much to somebody or a bunch of somebodies to do what needs to be done. Sarah Palin in 2008 could have been that person if she’d been the head of the ticket instead of the old man. She wasn’t even beholding to the Alaska GOP, she’d raised taxes on her husband’s employer (BP), and had never tried for national office before, so probably owed only the voters of Alaska and Walter Hickel anything. She was a great governor for Alaska, but I don’t think she was cut out for national office. Finding someone with that maverick spirit though won’t be easy and I seriously don’t expect this person to come from either major party. To get to the point of national office in either the GOP or the DNC, you have to sell your soul to special interests and so ….

      Yeah, I’m not confident. I can see what’s needed, but I don’t know how to make it happen. Prayer?


      • The American people are WAY beyond foolish. Their galactic MORONS. Putting the likes of BHO in office for another term? LOL. How much dumber can you get? The zenith of stupidity has been reached, no exceeded. Look who else they put in office. Biden? Pelosi? Harry Reid? Clinton who gets a BJ in the Oval Office by a kid two years out of high school? Class act, right? A bumbling peanut farmer who runs prime rate to 20% only to be topped by his stupid hick brother who drops his pants at the end of a runway and takes a piss, then comes out with Billy Beer to make a buck? Another class act. Governors who run their states into bankruptcy (Illinois, among many). Mayors (Richard M. Daley in Chicago) who run their cities broke and hide their nephew’s murdering a guy by beating him to death with a baseball bat. That’s class. Every major city in the US in financial trouble is being governed by a leftist as is every state in the union with financial turmoil. Senators who house young gay teenage pages in taxpayer funded homes for their own pleasures (Barney Frank). You leftists are just too classy for us country bumpkins, right? Us Tea Party folks who are all bigots and homophobes, right? LOL You’re so intellectually dishonest you make me puke. Hypocrisy is your first, middle and last name. You’re all a bunch of self absorbed, haughty jerks who deserve each other. Please go get neutered and do the world a favor. Then pay your fair share of taxes, you societal parasites. And if you want to take away my shotgun, please grab the barrel and pull it toward you.


      • Thanks for your opinion. Not exactly how I would express it, but I can sympathize with the frustration.


      • Lizzy Moron, only one part of your comment is worthy of reply: “pay your fair share of taxes, you societal parasites”

        It has been demonstrated repeatedly that most blue states pay more in taxes than they get back, while most red states pay less than they get in return. In other words, red states are most often the “parasites.”


  5. Amen.


  6. But there’s also this, of course: and this: and this: And there is poppy Bush’s famous bow to Emperor Hirohito at his funeral. Isn’t it fair to say you’re just rehashing old Republican canards without checking them and isn’t that actually very bad? Is it really so difficult to find real reasons to criticize Obama?


    • Nick, there’s one problem with your assessment of me … I am not a Republican, never have been a Republican and probably never will be a Republican. I am a conservative, however, and any politician — presidential or otherwise — who squanders the wealth of my nation as George W. Bush, Barack Obama and both the Republican and Democratic Congresses since 2006 have will receive my condemnation. I’m as annoyed with the Republicans as I am with the Democrats.

      There comes a time when wise people look at government systemically and assess it as ineffective and in need of reform. You may love Barack Obama for reasons that I cannot see, but I believe that if you look at him objectively, you’ll see that he has been a highly ineffective president who has placed us at a weaker position both domestically and internationally for — well, I’d like to blame it on incompetant born of inexperience, but it sometimes looks like it is a deliberate effort to undermine our nation. Benghazi and Fast-n-Furious are two such incidents that really make me (and others) wonder. I’m not saying other presidents have not done similarly, but they are no longer in office and so cannot do us further harm … unlike President Obama.


  7. Reblogged this on aurorawatcherak and commented:

    Why am I reblogging a reblog from months ago?

    It’s had new activty and I value diversity in opinion.


  8. Any way to get off this thread? Please? (rolling eyes in disgust)


  9. I find it interesting.


    • I find the reaction to it interesting. People take it so seriously. The fact is, the left-leaning press seems increasingly willing to label Obama’s policies less-than-stellar and that’s a long distance from where they were in his first term. It gives me a tiny bit of hope that the American people might wake up and smell the debt when he leaves office.

      Not that it might not be too late by then.
