Professor Dershowitz Is Right About Media Matters
Harvard University Professor Alan Dershowitz is one of the most knowledgeable and unapologetic defenders of Israel among American academics. This has unfortunately opened him to unfair and intellectually dishonest attacks from his fellow liberals.
In answering a recent attack by Max Blumenthal, formerly of Media Matters for America (MMfA), Prof. Dershowitz said , “Let me tell you, Max Blumenthal and Media Matters will be singlehandedly responsible for (Obama) losing this election. They (the Democrats) cannot win the election and keep this affiliation with them.”
I agree with Prof. Dershowitz, though obviously I think there are many, many more reasons why President Obama should lose this election (trillions, if you consider his latest budget proposal).
Prof. Dershowitz is right to draw attention to MMfA in particular. As Big Journalism points out: “Media Matters has been condemned by the Simon Wiesenthal Center for their continued use of an antisemitic slur ; their own allies have even thrown them under the bus for antisemitism .”
This just shows that Americans of all political stripes are awakened to the dangers of unethical journalists and media organizations that deceive their audiences and use bullying tactics to unfairly target political opponents.

On Monday, during a fundraiser in California, President Obama declared that Europe’s debt problems and their inability to solve them was “scaring the world.” He went on to explain that Europeans “have not fully healed from the crisis back in 2007 and never fully dealt with the challenges that their banking system faced” and that “they’re trying to take responsible actions, but those actions haven’t been quite as quick as they need to be.”
This of course is coming from a President who has done nothing to deal with our own country’s enormous debt crisis and who is in fact eager to incur even more debt with another useless stimulus bill (now called a “jobs bill” though the last stimulus failed to produce the jobs it promised, which is perhaps why Harry Reid doesn’t seem too eager to bring this new bill to a vote despite the President’s demands to “pass this bill”). Yes, Europe has serious debt problems, but for President Obama to be lecturing our allies about not being “quite as quick” in dealing with a debt crisis is downright hypocritical.
When his all-too-common finger-pointing is directed at Republicans, President Obama’s search for a scapegoat is swallowed as merely the typical Beltway politics of our permanent political class. But pointing fingers at our allies when they are working to get their own financial house in order is counterproductive and can have a serious negative affect on our ability to lead the free world.
One German newspaper denounced the President’s comments as “overbearing, arrogant, and absurd.” Another wrote: “The gloomy state of the economy is putting a damper on Obama’s future prospects. The optimism of the past is gone, replaced by a cheap search for a scapegoat.” And still another wrote: “That’s not how friends talk to each other. That applies particularly to friends who have themselves failed to get a handle on their own, self-made crisis.”
Can we blame them for feeling this way? Keep in mind this was a President who was supposed to make the rest of the world “like” us again.
It’s about time the President showed some leadership and took responsibility rather than campaigning on blaming everyone else for the financial mess his policies have exacerbated.
Between President Obama’s hypocritical lecture poking our allies in the eye again and one Democrat governor’s call to postpone lawfully mandated elections for two years, I suppose nothing should surprise concerned Americans anymore. But that doesn’t mean we have to accept these misguided memes. 2012 can’t come soon enough.

This is the clip of the video he posted, watch and listen:
After her introduction to public life thanks to the McCain’s movers and shakers, she does have a legitimate concern when it comes to run for President. After all the trashing she went through, she was quite uptight with the media (with good reason) and very apprehensive because as a VP candidate, she could not control her message. The message was fed, tweaked and many times, tucked under the carpet and was controlled to the point where she didn’t feel free-she had to be on script. Hence, the word “shackled” during this interview.
It is a life changing decision, but the best way she will feel comfortable is to have some reassurance that she controls the message.
Governor Palin is determined to deliver her message to the people on how she would handle the current events in the Oval Office; Sarah knows that she cannot control the media, but she will make sure that her message will be strong enough to resonate with what I call the “30-second audience”.
The “30-second audience” could care less about politics but don’t want Obama in the White House or are undecided, and another portion of that “30-second audience” should spend those seconds (and more) to see Governor Palin for what she really is, and what she’s accomplished throughout her life.The complete interview about this topic with Greta is at HotAir.

Governor Palin‘s speech in Iowa has has so far an interesting range of reactions, from revealing the true illness of America that suffers from direct political influences to a total disappointment because she didn’t announce her candidacy for 2012.
You may say that Rove‘s seed sprouted amongst some people but America is not patient, used to regular partisan standards on all parties and want this all over and done with in order to go back to their surreal reality shows, so they can get rid of Obama later.
Nobody believes as I do that this is must force Obama to respond. Palin laid her card without any specifics just like the rest of the GOP do-and why should she? Obama will present His “Ultimate Miracle Cure Jobs Plan” that will have none of the suggestions in Palin’s plan.

It’s harder to keep up with the Palins, but hey, that’s the idea. More pictures are coming in via Twitter and the media is already covering the whole front of the Trump Tower.
Nice to see that they are not interested in such a blithering, idiot and stupid hack./ Now let’s up the ante a bit, shall we?
Let’s trump it up with…pizza? I love Sarah’s parents, they’re just great.
