Obama as “Useful Stooge”

A long time student of Chicago politics said to me recently, “Obama is a useful stooge.”

For who?

“The American left, the United Nations, Iran, Hugo Chavez, the mainstream media…..”

That’s a strong accusation, I said.

“How do you think the terrorists read the tea leaves.  Oh, I forgot, we can’t say ‘terrorists’ or ‘tea leaves.””

The CIA couldn’t get the name from me.  Not anymore.

If The Tea Parties Don’t Matter, Why Does The White House and the Left Keep Bringing Them Up?

It’s been a week since several hundred thousand Americans met in some 750 cities at TEA (“Taxed Enough Already”) parties to protest high taxes and government spending. One group sent a million tea bags to the White House. The self-styled “mainstream” media had studiously avoided covering the phenomenon in advance and, led by the New York Times, belittled it afterward. They were joined by the Obama Administration and its acolytes as being only the ventings of disgruntled conservatives.

These all tended to say that the TEA parties were the brainchildren of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or the Fox News Channel. In fact, the tea party idea was first mentioned by a commentator on CNN, followed by a mid-February TEA party in Orlando, Florida, that drew some four thousand participants.

Oddly, the Obama Administration, which quickly dismissed the events as trivial and inconsequential, kept right on doing so nearly a week later. If something were inconsequential wouldn’t they comment, then drop it? Instead, Last Sunday, as a guest on a TV public affairs program, Obama advisor David Axelrod said, “The thing that bewilders me is this president just cut taxes for 95 percent of the American people. So I think the tea bags should be directed elsewhere because he certainly understands the burden that people face.”

This mantra was repeated by others…….
