Conservatives are easily duped, recently confirmed by being punked by Anita Dunn and Bill Ayers. Now they’re punking each other with fake stories about President Obama’s college thesis, So desperate they’ll believe anything — the fake Obama thesis debunked
Now, you might be thinking: “Wait a minute, I thought conservatives didn’t like Obama’s elusive thesis because it was on nuclear disarmament.” Well, this is a different thesis, it would seem, and blogger Michael Ledeen wrote about it two days ago:
I missed this first time around. Brian Lancaster at Jumping in Pools reported on Obama’s college thesis, written when he was at Columbia. The paper was called “Aristocracy Reborn,” and in the first ten pages (which were all that reporter Joe Klein — who wrote about it for Time — was permitted to see).
So Ledeen sources this bombshell to another, more obscure conservative blogger, who wrote — back on August 25, mind you — that Time’s Joe Klein had seen Obama’s damning thesis and was going to report on it for “an upcoming special edition about the President.” No indication was given as to how this obscure blogger came to know that one of America’s premiere journalists had obtained this information. There was no indication as to how this blogger was able to quote material only Klein had had access to. Oh, and let’s not forget that this very same blogger was busted by PolitiFact.com for fabricating stories about President Obama.
But hey, why speculate on whether it’s true or not? Let’s go to the source. Mr. Klein? “A report is circulating among the wingnuts that I had a peek at Barack Obama’s senior thesis. It is completely false. I’ve never seen Obama’s thesis. I have no idea where this report comes from — but I can assure you that it’s complete nonsense.”
Some obscure blogger pulls a tangled pile of garbage from his a*s. Story repeated as completely credible by the conservative media, Ledeen being one of the Right’s leading intellectuals. Conservatives could care less about health care and America’s working families, why should they be expected to care about the truth. Ledeen is a big fan of Machiavelli and the WW II era Italian fascism.
Public health care does work. Dick Cheney’s pace maker is still working. Provided with some extra years of life he seems determined to do as much as he can to undermine American values – more war, more torture, less adherance to representative government by and for the people. So in a way anti health-care conservatives might be correct, public health-care will at times be abused, Biden On Cheney Criticism: “Who Cares?”
Cheney said in a speech Wednesday night at the Center for Security Policy that President Obama is “dithering” on Afghanistan “while America’s armed forces are in danger.” He claimed that “signals of indecision out of Washington hurt our allies and embolden our adversaries.”
The vice president did elaborate on one of Cheney’s arguments — that the last administration left Obama with a review of Afghanistan.
“A whole lot has changed in the last year,” he said. “Let’s assume they left us a review that was absolutely correct. Is that review relevant and totally applicable to today in light of the changes that have taken place in the region, in Afghanistan itself? So I think that is sort of irrelevant. Not sort of — I think it’s irrelevant.”
Dick Cheney and George W. Bush will go down in history as the leaders who managed to turn the victory, of Clinton’s lean and mean modern military, in Afghanistan into defeat. While simultaneously letting the guy responsible for 9-11 get away at Tora Bora.
