Class Act: President New Tone Calls Romney a Bulls****** in Interview

October 25, 2012 at 9:35 am (2012 Election, Bullshitter, Children, Kids, Mitt Romney, President Obama, Rolling Stone)

He has no record to run on.  He has little in the way of an agenda for his second term.  And he is devoid intellectually of being able to debate in a rational manner.  So it seems, President Obama has resorted to childish name-calling.

This is a sitting U.S. President saying this:

FIRST LOOK – Rolling Stone cover, “Obama and the Road Ahead: The Rolling Stone Interview,” by Douglas Brinkley: “We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview … on the morning of October 11th. … As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. … [S]he said, ‘Tell him: You can do it.’ Obama grinned. … ‘You know, kids have good instincts,’ Obama offered. ‘They look at the other guy and say, “Well, that’s a bullshitter, I can tell.”

Mind you, this is a President who has perfected the art of bulls******* the American people over the last several weeks with his grand story-telling about the events that transpired in Benghazi.

This is a President who fed the public absolute bulls*** when he claimed he didn’t raise taxes on the middle class, all the while knowing that Obamacare is set to hammer the middle class with such taxes.

This is a President who presided over the longest stretch of unemployment of 8% in history, while telling the American people that if he passed his stimulus it would never go above 8%.

If children have instincts that help them to identify a bulls******, they’d be running for the hills from you, Mr. Obama.  You are not Presidential material, you’re barely an accomplished snake-oil salesman.  And soon, you’ll be gone.

That’s no bulls***.

Rolling Stone on Breitbart: He’s Dead. Good!

March 2, 2012 at 8:37 am (Andrew Breitbart, Celebrating Death, Hatred, Journalistic Integrity, Matt Taibbi, Media, Rolling Stone)

And it gets much worse from there…

I almost hate to draw attention to this incredibly sad example of the intolerant left over at Rolling Stone, but quite frankly, Andrew Breitbart probably would have eaten this up, and tweeted it back out.

Matt Taibbi, who delusionally lists himself among the ranks of ‘journalist’ and ‘political writer’ took things way too far today, posting a blog entry on the Rolling Stone site which is, in a word – abhorrent.

We’ve all seen examples of the intolerant left on Twitter, something that sadly is to be expected in such a crazy and unregulated platform.  But when you represent a magazine like Rolling Stone and publish something like this, then you’ve clearly forfeitted your right to ever, ever, call yourself a journalist.  You barely have the right to call yourself a man.

The article won’t be linked here, but you can read some excerpts below – provided you have a strong enough stomach.

(Language Warning)

Taibbi posted a piece in which the title says it all – Andrew Breitbart:  Death of a Douche.
A classy start that goes downhill from there.

So Andrew Breitbart is dead. Here’s what I have to say to that, and I’m sure Breitbart himself would have respected this reaction: Good! Fuck him. I couldn’t be happier that he’s dead.

Taibbi then rounded out his piece with this paragraph, in which he appears to justify his language and contempt because Breitbart has used such language in the past.

But he also had enough of a sense of humor to appreciate why someone like me shouldn’t bother to pretend I’m sad he’s dead. He wouldn’t, in my place. So to use one of his favorite words: Good riddance, cocksucker.* Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

None of this should be a surprise really, as this man has a history of writing such controversial pieces.  Taibbi was mentioned in this New York Times Art section entry for another piece that celebrated the death of a great man.

Jeff Koyen, the editor of New York Press, the pugnacious free weekly, resigned yesterday over a cover article last week that ridiculed the failing health of Pope John Paul II. The article, a column by Matt Taibbi, had the headline “The 52 Funniest Things About the Upcoming Death of the Pope.”

While the editor of the New York Press had the decency and common sense to resign over such an incendiary piece, don’t expect so much as an apology from Rolling Stone.

This is what they view as ‘journalism’ there, and it is precisely what Andrew Breitbart has fought against for so many years.

While the sickest members of the liberal media continue to spew their hatred for a man who fought to expose what they truly represent, we can take solace in the fact that Andrew is laughing and retweeting this liberal bile straight from heaven.
