H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.
"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
---H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
So it was written and it has now come to pass.
President Obama and his adminstration deliberately excluded counter terrorism officials from consultations at the White House in the wake of the attack.
Why? They did not want to have to admit that Al Qaeda, touted as dead and buried, had hit America again on the 11th anniversary of the original 9-11 attacks. Obama was counting on running as the man who killed the terrorists. Now he has to run as the failur who allowed terrorists to kill his Ambassador to Libya.
The main stream news media has aided the Obama administration cover-up by attempting to make Romney's CORRECT statement about a separate demonstration in Egypt appear to be a gaffe.
Well Sybil (brent now): Obama has just three things now he wants to accomplish; the Budget, Immigration, & the farm bill. (don't you just love how 'ambitious' he want to be?)
#1 the budget: he hasn't had one yet- I don't think anyone in his administration knows how to even construct one- PROVE ME WRONG !
#2 immigration: You're going to have a very hard time if this includes amnesty & selling this to the American business' who will have to not only put them on the payrolls, but pay taxes on them too for the first time.
#3 farm bill: This should go through fairly smoothly if Obama & congress has any sense at all, they need help after that drought- anyone take a hard look at beef prices lately?, Poultry? Next is Pork prices ready to go through the roof.
My goodness you people that believe that freak brought peace & prosperity to the country must be sick?? You must believe in communist socialism because that is exactly what is happening to this country. In my whole 82 years in this country I have never seen such a Chicago mafia bunch type administration in office & more being appointed each month. When they attack the constitution the line should be drawn. Sure hope the decent folks let them know how they feel about being stripped if their religion, free states & the onslaught of illegal's & forced medical procedures & insurance and all the freebees being handed out. At the coming polls....God Bless..
A SHARP:Obama was a US senator before winning the Presidency.Guys like Boehner,mitch
will only stay in the Congres and never move up.
CL:Before you bring up Benghazi,don`t forget the 4 deaths pail in comparison to the 3,000
on 9-11.Benghazi is one of the snake pits of the world.I`m not saying drones are the answer,
but I`ld rather see that than boots on the ground.Hillary took the blame for Benghazi.I`m glad
I`m not ever going to be President and have to make life and death decisions.
OHBUMMY:Why don`t you stick to the subject instead of pushing your hate agenda?We all
know you`re not objective.You never give Obama the respect he`s earned.
CHATR:Just ignore my facts.You`re an Obama hater through and through.Say some good things
about Obama and I`ll do the honor of responding.
CHATR:When are you going to give Obama the respect he`s earned.He was masterful in the way
he handled Syria and the way he beat the Repubs brains in this week.Maybe in Obama`s last 39
months you`ll learn how to spell his name.Enjoy the peace and prosperity he`s brought.
