NBC Pulls Trump Card

NBC plays the Trump card. Wasn’t that predictable?

In their disagreement with what Trump has said on the illegal invasion on the border, they terminated their business dealings with him. I bet the Left was applauding. I wonder what is in the contract, if there was one? They just prove they can break business ties on words they don’t like — whatever they find objectionable.

Their business deals must abolish the speech of anyone they deal with. Funny that working relationship has not affected Rev Al Sharpton’s mouth. Or maybe that is what they wanted when they hired him? Yet they refused responsibility and made a disclaimer for Williams’ words.

Change org’s petition was said:

“Please cancel Miss USA, Miss Universe and the Apprentice. You are supporting a hateful and narcissistic individual without any kind of values, both personal and business wise. Not only that, but you are supporting a growing trend of bigotry and division in this country.”

USA today says “Trump continues to deny he’s a bigot”.

But NBC should be careful of appeasing liberal left demands. What happens when it refuses to do what they or Univision wants? Well, when they find out it won’t be pretty. This was consequences for running, the statements were the excuse. It always seems free speech is a one way street with the left.

Along those terms, here’s the latest version: police crackdown on Ferguson riots violated the free speech of thugs and looters rioting. Hey, free speech must mean free stuff to the left. If that’s the case, seeing the way Obama’s been cracking down on conservatives we should be entitled to loot Fort Knox — if there is anything in it.

See Change vs Sea Change

You might have expected this “Best” talk before or just after his inauguration, but now?

At Daily Kos they had this piece “Obama: best president ever” (then saying, updated with caveats) Well, however they meant it, however many caveats, it doesn’at even  pass the smell test. But I saw this in there which really made me chuckle.

“But I think about Carter and his deer-in-headlights helplessness in the face of the nation’s problems and internal institutional resistance to reforms he sought; his seemingly endemic cluelessness – painfully visible even watching his speeches today – about how things look and what a situation calls for; his slow-paced, countrified, reverential attitude making it clear he thought himself to be President of an America that hadn’t existed in decades.”

Okay, anyone else see glaring similarities in this statement to Obama? Just as most of those criticisms of former presidents could very well apply to Obama. But that doesn’t matter to the left when one starts out to disprove conventional wisdom or rationality. Lets face it, many people see  the plague of problems in this president, which is why the left keeps touting the polls, “but people like him, personally”. So if anything they could start a campaign that he is the most likeable, or dare I say popular, in a “star search” kind of way,  But in job performance he is severely lacking and aloof. Plus he had no business saying or promising what he did because he knew practically nothing about the job he so desperately  sought. That is just fact.  And that is only where the irony begins.

Since then Barack has used a measuring stick to question the experience and character of his opponents. Not to his own inexperience though. One would think that would be a challenge even for the magical Obama to do. But not a problem for Hypocrite in Chief.

And oh, by the way, remember those great speeches that had people in tears, tingling, and fainting complete with Roman columns? Well, how do you think those are going to look and sound when looking back? I would say they will probably lose something in the translation. I doubt they will sound like the epic, tide-turners they were billed to be at the time. They and he won’t have the same effect on people they did then. Its just the way it works. And the more people know the more they are finding that ironically it was really as Obama said in one of his great speeches, “just words” — which were even stolen.

Candidate “Hope and Change” runs for 2nd term.

 Rocky Mountain High meets Ohio State U – no holds barred

Dateline: May 5, 2012
Place: Columbus, Ohio

 “If people ask you what this campaign is about, you tell them ‘it’s still about hope.’ You tell them ‘it’s still about change,'” [Obama] told a cheering mass of supporters at Ohio State University in Columbus, six months and one day before the election. “I still believe in you. And I’m asking you to keep believing in me.”

“The real question, the question that will actually make a difference in your life, in the lives of your children, is not just about how we’re doing today. It’s about how we’ll be doing tomorrow,” Obama said.

Not only hasn’t he delivered on the old question “are you better off today than you were four years ago?”, he has reframed it into a new question. Now he tells you that old question does not matter – If you still aren’t better off, and I haven’t delivered –just buy more of my Hope Oil for the future. “Hey, I haven’t delivered so far, but just bet it all on me for the future. Long odds, but hey, you know me and gambling.”

 As RNC’s Reince Priebus said, “he is really running on hype and blame.”

 The second thing wrong with what he’s selling is the “believe in me” part. He wants you to transfer your faith and hope to him, personally. That a way to go there bumsteer; you haven’t delivered yet.  So what does his record tell us?  If it does not materialize, as I say,  then it must be the people’s fault for not believing and having enough faith in me.

He also does not want people to vote as a referendum on him, he wants them to vote for him because he is not Mitt Romney. Remember the same strategy when he ran as the ‘not Bush candidate’ against George Bush, who was leaving.

Picture it: Kent State, Ohio in 1970;  now, 2012, O-ba-ma comes to O-hi-o to sing a song of salvation from the albatross of the DC elites. But now the leftwing radicals buy hope and change just because its labeled “hope and change” – for practically no other reason.

Side note: Michelle introduced him as the standard-bearer of the “fundamental promise”.

Here’s a bit of irony: instead of the albatross coming to the rescue like above, Obama has a new drone plan rolling out. Check that out at Pepperhawkfarm.
