How We Got Trump II: 2008, 2009, 2010

Gonna start again, right from the beginning of the abuses. The Obama campaign.

Polishing A Turd, Step 1: Greek Columns

Remember? During the Democratic National Convention in Colorado, an ABC reporter was arrested for taking pictures of big Dem donors from a public sidewalk in front of a hotel.

Here is the video of the arrest, where the police push him into traffic then yell at him for standing in the street.

As we know from watching the last eight years of coverage, like a battered wife, the media forgave quickly, of course.

No damn lobbyists in the Obama administration! Except for this guy, and this gal, and this guy...waivers...recusals...uhhh nevermind.

Stimulus! Had No! Effect! On economic recovery! Last update of Geoff's awesome graphic, showing the Obama team's original chart with post-stimulus data points overlaid, which are plainly far worse than Obama's 'no stimulus' scenario. But remember, these people are such economic geniuses.

Because they are not a free press, but Democrat shills: They will gladly co-produce an Obama White House Healthcare Lying Propaganda Special, but airing paid ads opposing Obamacare is 'partisan' and against their ad policy. Flawless logic!

And, remember? Nancy Pelosi on passing the ACA:

Apologist Tommy Christopher at Mediaite tried to put the famous Pelosi quote in context. But after reading the text, the context stubbornly remains the same.

Tommy seems to just be hoping that we didn't read the whole thing, and just assume his debunking was valid. Nope. Read it. Still means the same thing. It means "We are giving you permission to shut off your troublesome brain when opponents are reading you the direct contents of the bill. Sign here right now hurry."

So: on one hand, we were brazenly and treacherously told to wait until ACA passed before finding out what our representatives had just voted for.

On the other hand, when they offered clarifications (petulantly), we were straight up lied to by the president, his spokespeople, and the press (birm).

On the third hand, the conservatives who actually read the bill and told us that the political class was lying their pants off about it, were demonized at the time, but ultimately vindicated.

And this is how you got Trump.

Next week: Foreign Policy.
