LATER ON, WE’LL CONSPIRE, AS WE SIT BY THE LIAR
RUSH: Here. Just to show you that I wasn’t making it up, Tuesday night on MSNBC, Richard Wolffe — author of a book about Obama and his campaign who is working on another book with Obama, presumably with close access — goes on this network to talk about the attempted Christmas Day terrorist attack, and he’s asked this question: “Mr. Wolffe, where is the focus right now?”
WOLFFE: Well, I was speaking to White House, uh, folks earlier today and — and it’s clear the President is still, uhhh, deeply concerned and troubled, ahh, even angry at — at the intelligence lapses. But they see this more as an intelligence lapse, ah, more than a situation of airport security faults. So the question here is: Why didn’t the centralized system of intelligence that was set up after 9/11…? Why didn’t it work? Is this conspiracy or cock up? The president is leaning very much towards thinking this was a systemic failure by individuals who maybe had an alternative agenda.
RUSH: … So it’s all about him. It’s all about him. That’s why he gets mad. He thinks somebody tried to make him look bad, The One, The Messiah.
This Cult of Personality narcissism is actually a step backwards for liberals. They’ve gone from the already-backwards “Why Do They Hate Us?” to “Why Do They Hate Him?”
It’s not about Leader and it’s not even about us. It’s about them. Short of converting to Islam and submitting, there is nothing we can do to appease them.
Apparently, even this White House realized they had taken liberals’ animus against the intelligence community too far. Wolffe, their unofficial spokesman, immediately began walking back the allegation. Wolffe had “just checked in” with his masters, and he told Maddow by phone that the storyline he and The Sportscaster had spun was, in reality, “ten steps ahead of where the White House is right now,” and that “this comes down to human error more than this is some willful withholding.” Granted, Wolffe added that the conspiracy “questions are being asked.”
In other words, this White House trial balloon went over about as well as the Balloon Boy stunt.
So let me get this straight:
First, Bush and the Evil Establishment blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon so they could build an oil pipeline through Afghanistan (which no one is building), and now, just to keep in practice, the Rogue Intel Establishment let Mr. FruitatheLooma get on that airplane just to make Obama look bad.
Makes sense to me.
Who are these shadowy “Establishment” guys, anyway? Are they pals of Bill Ayers, frustrated because they didn’t get to blow up enough stuff back in the ’70’s? Besides, I thought Democrats liked Rogue Intelligence Officers who make their own foreign policy, like Valerie and Joe Plame.
Maybe all these journalists who keep bringing up Hofstadter’s “The Paranoid Style in American Politics” were right, after all.
