‘siroto, the nancy grace of politics’

You have to see this reply at Salon to David Siroto’s latest diatribe, it’s majestic:

The Aggressive Progressive: Sirota = The Nancy Grace of Politics. Actually, Nancy Grace’s understudy.

Really that honor goes to Glenn Greenbeck.

GG is basically Nancy Grace at this point…his entire shtick is now just exclusively Outrage Porn. Hysterical, breathless, hyperbolic, pearl-clutching Outrage Porn for the diehard core of emotionally unstable weirdos that are addicted to it.

….Here’s proof that Sirota is a fucking parasitical douchenozzle that is making a career profiting off of fomenting Obama Derangement Syndrome among so called “progressives” – back 3 days before Obama’s Inauguration, he wrote a piece of shit concern/outrage troll piece basically saying that Obama’s Presidency was a failure…NEGATIVE FOUR DAYS before the guy even came to office! I mean, holy shit! Even the entirety of the right wing waited for the guy do get sworn in before they released the hounds. Sirota couldn’t even wait that long:


Biased much? So of course he’s going to construct a wall of lies to create this false reality to contort to his own personal vendetta against the man.

I would also remind anyone (although in vain as Salon is pretty much FUBAR); whether an inbred retarded neoconfederate racist bucktoothed teabagger brandishing a mispelled racist sign on a rascal scooter, or a Mommy’s basement anarcho-nihilist Greenbeck who is also addicted to ODS Outrage Porn; the following:

Obama Derangement Syndrome is not an organizing principle or philosophy of governance.

****

The comments under these ‘Outrage Porn’ posts at Salon are always amusing. They usually start like this (from under Sirota’s post):

They all agree, ‘the Obots keep playing the race card’, and then they write stuff like this (again, all from under the Siroto post):

Who exactly is obsessed with the color of the President’s skin?

‘the latest in a long line of manufactured outrages’

Steve Benen: ……Apparently, the most contentious point yesterday – or, at least, the point Republicans want to pretend was contentious – was one 30-word sentence: “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the same thing two years ago, and Jeffrey Goldberg noted that George W. Bush adopted the same line in 2005 (see below).

…as near as I can tell, the president yesterday articulated the same position American administrations have taken for decades. Ah, Charles Krauthammer says, that may be, but no president has “ever before publicly and explicitly endorsed the 1967 lines.” In other words, Obama said something scandalous by taking a U.S. policy that’s existed for a generation and saying that it’s U.S. policy….

Full post here

Jeffrey Goldberg (The Atlantic): In 2005, George W. Bush stated that it is “unrealistic to expect that the outcome of final status negotiations will be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949” (the 1967 boundaries of Israel, in other words).

Yesterday, Barack Obama said that  he believes “the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.”

I take this to mean that Israel would retain its major settlement blocs; that it would retain the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, and that it would take West Bank land needed to thicken it at its most narrow point, in exchange for land adjacent to the Gaza Strip and the southern West Bank. I also interpret the saying “mutually agreed upon” to mean, well, “mutually agreed upon.” In other words, these boundaries would not be set without Israel’s approval.

I understand that Prime Minister Netanyahu is interpreting this as a major policy shift, and I understand that much of the media is going along with this interpretation. For what it’s worth, I don’t see a huge gap in the way these two Presidents framed the core issue.

boehner, april 7: “there’s no daylight between the tea party & me”…..

…..err.

Yes, I heroically ventured in to Teabagger land again:

Just go away, Boehner. Thanks for handing zero and Reid a victory so they can parade about on TV. Grow a pair, you weakling.

Is anyone up for helping to Primary Boehner?

Boehner is history!!! They agreed to kill babies. VOTE NO!!!!

What’s that rumbling in the distance??? RUN!! It’s a Boehner CAVE IN!!

now that the dems know all they have to do is threaten a government shutdown and Boehner will tear-up, and cave in.

If Bachmann will cave to harry Reid, how can anyone expect her to stand up to Al Qaeda?

John Boohoo is done. He’s public enemy number 2 next to any democrat. Well, maybe he’s just “number 2”. Either way…done.

I’m becoming more convinced we need Trump.

When Obama told John Boehner, your eyes are so deep and John started crying and agreed for deal.

Its OVER. These crap heads cant even win a little battle. We must purge them from our party. We must defeat Boehner in his next election. This is the crap that lead to this revolution and they did not get the message. They will get the message now. This is a horrible cave in!!!

The Democrats are laughing at Boehner.

Boner is a spineless, gutless eunuch. I called his office a week or so ago and got one of his young, arrogant snots who made it clear that he didn’t care to hear comments.

Yet once again the Republicans have caved, just like the Gingrich Republicans caved in ‘94. Meet the new scumbags, same as the old scumbags.

Boner can go cry himself to sleep! What a pussy! I am ashamed of these LOOZAH’S

Boehner is political toaste. I will pay money to his republican challenger in a primary.

Boehner cried, and babies died.

The reports I have read said there are about $38.5 billion in cuts. Whoopee.

I’m not sure I want to go to battle if the Republicans have my back.

Did the Republicans win ANYTHING?

The Tea Party won’t be wiping his tears. He can cry when he realizes We The People want him to resign and let a real man take over.

Barack has now came one step closer to be our king. Shame on us.

I just tried calling Boners office and the message box is full, naturally. I did send a scathing email.

How long will God have mercy on a corrupt nation?

Bachman said she was going after the 105 billion hidden obamacare money. What happened there? NADA. nothing Zilch.

Obama’s approval rating just went up ten points. Take a bow, Boner. Way to make the man not have to break a sweat

****

This Teabagger had no words, only a picture:

Crikey Rusty, that’s a whole lot of daylight….

he’s a sell-out!!!!!! oh. wait.

Greg Sargent (Washington Post): I keep reading in various places that all those losers on the left are absolutely outraged that Obama sold them out by giving what’s widely being described as an “olive branch” speech today to the Chamber of Commerce. But judging by the AFL-CIO’s response, it seems some liberals actually are pleasantly surprised by how he handled it.

AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie Vale emails a list of the passages from Obama’s speech the AFL-CIO liked, where Obama seemed to challenge the Chamber to live up to its responsibilities to America and the American worker:

Obama’s reminder to business that they have a responsibility to America, that they can’t just worry about shareholders and the bottom line… that there are important regulations …. that changes in the tax code need to benefit everyone (go to link for speech extracts)

….labor types didn’t expect, and were cheered by, Obama’s defense of government regulation, the emphasis on reforming the tax code so it benefits everyone, and the insistence that corporations need to ask themselves what they can do for America and its workers.

….the speech wasn’t exactly FDR telling “organized money” that he “welcomes their hatred,” but Obama did give folks on the left more than the media previews in the lead-up to the speech might have led you to expect.
