Obama's ongoing ode to Alinsky
Posted by Laura

Spare us the phony outrage, Mr. President. His press conference on Monday addressing the IRS and Benghazi scandals was a pathetic display. Not only did he "tolerate" the targeting of political foes, he laid the groundwork for it. How? President Obama--no one else--set the tone early on in his administration. People who disagreed with his agenda were to be explicitly or implicitly demonized and intimidated. From his suing states that enforce federal immigration law, to his AG calling the nation "a bunch of cowards," to his phoning Sandra Fluke to cement the "war on women" narrative, to his henchmen implicitly threatening the insurance co's that didn't line up to support Obamacare--and let's not forget his using the "punish your enemies" line to stoke anger among Latino voters. So do any of these revelations about wiretapping reporters, using the IRS to harass conservative groups, sending out Susan Rice to repeat a lie really surprise me? Not in the slightest. This is classic Alinsky-style politics that Barack Obama learned during his community organizing and from his pal Bill Ayers. Excuse me for not shedding tears for AP reporters who refused to believe in the concerns raised by many on the right. Do they believe now?
