If a tree falls in the forest, and the mainstream media claims that it did not make a sound because the tree in fact did not fall, does that really mean that the tree did not fall, or make a sound when it fell?
First let us deal with the insanely stupid philosophical question, “If a tree fell in the Forest”. Yes, that is an insanely stupid and immature question. The universe does not need to be observed to exist, it does not cease to exist when you close your eyes or when you die. To conclude that sound does not exist unless their is someone to hear it is to insist insanely that physical phenomena must be observed in order for them to exist. Sound is not the chemical reactions of a set of neurons reacting to stimuli, it is a physical phenomena that exists regardless of anyone or thing observing it. Sound is a wave front of vibrating molecules traveling through a environment of gas or a combination of gases. Whether their is anyone or thing observing it does not alter whether it exists or not.
Barack Obama was described best by the Bard himself over 400 years ago; “but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”.
Barack has had his moment upon the stage, widely cheered for a moment upon his entrance, until the audience realized that he wasn’t the hero, but rather, the fool. The cheers are dying down, and now the cat calls and jeers have started. The Mainstream Media, having 100 percent failed to recognize which character he played cheered the loudest, and now that it is evident to nearly everyone that he is the fool, they pretend that nobody has noticed. They pretend, because in proclaiming him the hero, when he is in fact the plays fool, they made fools of themselves.
As I had predicted months age, the stories have indeed begun, various Mainstream Media outlet’s, in a desperate attempt to distance themselves from the man they once proclaimed as the messiah, are now writing articles admitting that they really should have vetted his policies better. It will not be long now before they make the transition from admitting that they should have vetted his policies better, to they should have vetted him better. they will do so now, because they have no choice. They have already asserted that the tree made no sound, because it did not fall, the problem with that assertion is, that the tree, when it fell, landed on the houses of dozens of villagers living in the forest.
The villagers are pissed, they’re pissed at the tree for falling on their houses, and their pissed off at the mainstream media who claimed that the tree did not fall, let alone on their houses. The axes, hatchets and saws are out, and the branches are being stripped from the tree. Those branches that the mainstream media claims do not exist, from the tree they claim did not fall are being stacked against the houses of the mainstream media, and set on fire.
CNN poll shows Obama personal qualities sliding underwater
In fact, Obama is plummeting across the board:
Obama’s woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues. Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.
Don’t think Democrats on Capitol Hill haven’t noticed, either. While party leaders toe the party line, such as DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ claim that “Democrats will run on ObamaCare and win,” the rest of the Democrats are starting to wonder whether their party leadership is in denial:
Democratic leaders claim the bungled launch of Obamacare is just the latest news sensation — a media-stirred tempest that looks in the heat of the moment like it could upend the midterm election, but ends up fizzling well before voters head to the polls.
Some party strategists say they’re in denial.
And that perceived gap between party spin and facts on the ground is fueling worries that the White House and Democratic higher-ups aren’t taking the possible electoral blowback seriously enough or doing enough to shield their candidates. …
So while Pelosi and Wasserman Schultz insist they aren’t worried about Obamacare’s impact on 2014, the candidates facing tough races are acting worried. This month, 39 Democrats — the vast majority of them from swing districts — broke with the White House to support a Republican bill that would allow insurance companies to continue selling plans that don’t comply with Obamacare requirements through next year.
And some of them are taking a step further and taking shots at the White House. In an interview with CBS News, West Virginia Rep. Nick Rahall — one of the 39 party-bucking Democrats — said he wasn’t sure Obama had the “legal underpinning” for his fix that would allow people to retain health care plans that don’t comply with the ACA’s benefit standards for another year.
“There’s a rash of polls out this week showing Obama’s approval going down and the generic ballot closing. That explains why people are doing what they’re doing,” Frederick said.
Some people, Frederick said, “are seeing this as a disaster and they’re trying to run away from it.”
If the polling is accurate, it seems as though the American public is running away from Obama, too. Unfortunately for Democrats, they won’t be able to distance themselves from the disastrous ObamaCare they shoved down everyone’s throats, along with the rest of the second-term debacles that they have enabled by their support of a President perceived by a majority as both incompetent and dishonest.
Barack Obama is now enjoying the same level of popularity that George W Bush enjoyed at this point in his presidency, except, that the Obama economy is 5 times as bad as the Bush economy, a gallon of gasoline which cost a mere $1.79 under Bush now costs #3.50 a gallon, health insurance if you even still have it, cost twice as much as it did just months ago. More importantly, Obama has scandal after scandal still hanging around his neck that simply refuse to go away, despite the Mainstream Media’s best efforts to bury them. Operation Fast and Furious? Still working it’s way through the court system. Benghazi? congress is still holding hearings and demanding answers, and NO, nobody accepts Obama and Hillary’s claims that it was caused by a youtube video nobody have even seen. The IRS targeting Obama’s political opponents? Also still winding it’s way through the court system. The NSA illegal tapping of US Citizens constitutionally protected communications? Yup, still being investigated by congress.
