Dear Editors: Now Can We Spill The Beans?

By Jack Engelhard

Congratulations to all those across the Non-Fox News media landscape…The New York Times, NPR, CBS, NBC, ABC et al…you got your man comfy back in the White House, so now you can tell it like it really is. That is, after years of lies and evasions, you can tell the truth for a change.

 

It’s okay. It’s safe. He’s in like Flynn. The truth can come out wherever it is.

 

From the moment your man came on the scene you covered for him at a loss of your integrity and your editorial judgment. You forgot rule number one; tell a story from both sides. You stopped being journalists. You became shills and hucksters and snake oil salesmen. By suppression and by deception you kept us in the dark.

 

By perversion and by distortion you kept us stumbling eyes wide shut. By hook and by crook you fixed your headlines to favor one man, one argument. By cunning and by mockery you slandered his opponent. By flagrant dishonesty you failed us and you failed yourselves upon your duty to keep us informed… and nothing is more dangerous than a population that receives propaganda in the guise of news.

Get Used To Obama, Stupid — Jack Engelhard

 

If you’re afraid, as I am, about another four years under Obama – tough. He’s in, in like Flynn.

 

The conservative in me hopes for the best, but I’m a gambler and my money says that once again the Republicans are a bad bet.

 

They have only themselves to blame. O how they keep blowing chances! Last time they gave us what’s-his-name, a great war hero but a lousy campaigner. Ditto this time around…and I came to this realization while watching that kid on some talk show – Paul Ryan, right?

 

So underwhelming, this kid. Absolutely generic.  I can’t dislike him but can’t like him, either.

Obama/Romney/Clooney and Best President Money Can Buy

By Jack Engelhard

Apparently, the love of money is the root of all politics.

I thought we were broke…so broke that China has become our Sugar Daddy…so broke that our president bows to the king of Saudi Arabia.

So where is all this money coming from and where did the recession go?

A few weeks back George Clooney held a fundraiser that netted Barack Obama $15 million – this on top of the nearly $200 million Obama already has stashed away for his Second Coming. (The exact figure is $196, 909, 097, as of March, per NY Times.) I imagine that Romney also has some money coming in, plus his own wealth, but nothing compared to the incumbent.

In case you think this is a rant against one single candidate, Obama, no, it’s about finding and funding the best president money can buy…either party.

The Times and others are joyful, telling us that these figures prove that Obama is as popular as ever. Yes, money talks and yes, money measures love.

If greed is good, it’s especially good when it comes to purchasing high office.

I used to think that we’re supposed to vote for the wisest man or woman in the land. I was wrong. We vote for the money.

Who is most qualified? The man who strikes it rich!
