WaPo reveals the ugly Chicago tactics of Obama
Readers of American Thinker are well aware of the bring-a-gun-to-a-knife-fight nature of Presiddnt Obama's political tactics. But for the Beltway denizens who read the Washington Post, not the Times or Free Beacon, may have an underdeveloped appreciation for the Alinsky influence at work in the nation's highest office. That's why it is encouraging to see Rachel Weiner of the WaPo reporting:
In the summer of 2010, with Republicans poised to take over the House and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) in line to lead the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the White House started urging reporters to write negative stories about the congressman's past, a new book says.
New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich describes what he says were the anti-Issa efforts in "This Town," a condemnation of Washington self-obsession and self-promotion, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Post.
According to Leibovich, former Obama deputy press secretary Bill Burton and suggested the reporter look into Issa's past.
Do liberals remember when "hope" was associated with Obama? Will it ever sink in on liberals that they were conned into backing a man very different than they imagined? Gutter politics, news management, and incompetence are the obvious legacies of Obama's time in office. Time to wake up, libs.
