MSNBC Redefines American History in the Context of Obama
Ed Schultz along with his cast of liberal progressive historians collectively and affectionately known as MSNBC the most leftist talking heads of the MSM suffers from progressive socialist democrat revisionist history syndrome. All they can see is that our entire American experience is the sum total of when Obama took office and that every comment made by anyone, much less Mitt Romney must be filtered through this paradigm.
Mitt Romney during his acceptance speech at the RNC Convention dared to make a statement about the American experience which was interpreted to mean from a post Obama liberal progressive viewpoint; as throwing a bone to the "birther" movement. Which in and of itself is an abhorrent pejorative meant to discredit anyone that may have a legitimate question about our president and stifle any debate on this important issue from these so-called leftist journalists.
Mitt, God love him; made an innocuous remark that any ordinary American would interpret correctly; with "when the world needs to do really big things, you need an American!"
How is that Ed and company does not know about Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon. Or the Mars rover and our space program that routinely investigate the universe. What about the 'Greatest Generation' that willingly sacrificed their lives as the driving force behind the defeat of fascism during WWII as just another example of American exceptionalism.
As a terrible consequence of that conflagration the Soviets barricaded Berlin, our Airlift fed the starving people of Germany (our sworn enemy during WWII) and was just another initiative and humanitarian effort of a noble people. What of the driving force for the creation of the United Nations after WWII which held the promise for lasting peace after that terrible blood letting the likes of which the world had never seen. Or Henry Ford who introduced to the world the assembly line for mass produced goods and made all that we became possible.
What about the creation of our wondrous consumer driven society that has led the world in untold choice and luxury for a lifestyle that has been unrivaled since the dawn of man. With a real world cost of a mere pittance in comparison to the outcome that we enjoy on a daily basis. What about the marvels of technology that we routinely get to pass judgment on thanks to our consumer based free market capitalist economy. Or how about our ability to drive to the market and have the absolute finest that the world can offer at our finger tips on a daily basis.
The world is our oyster.
No, the world, our lives and economy must be filtered through all that has happened since Obama cast his shadow on our lives and fortunes of the American people and all must be judged since that day. Yes, Ed, Rachel, Mika, Chris, Keith, Martin, Andrea, Lawrence, and Rev. Sharpton it is much more than one man and your cult of personality. It is about an entire nation and moving us out of the quagmire that Obama and you have left this nation in.
Mitt is right when you want to do big "stuff" will require an American and not one who is stuck in 2008 with the malaise and economic disappointment that Obama has given us. Much less how he has proven to be woefully inadequate for the task at hand, more importantly how he is not made of the same cloth as the rest of us.
As an "American."
