Mike Williams' Obama Watch - Apr. 16, 2009

The MSM’s coverage of yesterday’s Tea Parties is much on the minds of the starboard side bloggers today. Ed Driscoll at Pajama’s Media has one of the best takes here. CNN’s Anderson Cooper referred to the movement as “teabagging,” which is a term I wasn’t familiar with until I read about it here.

Gateway Pundit channels the best line of the day: "They will be selling the 'Obama burger' — you pay for one and they cut it in half and give the rest to the guy behind you for free!!" Obama probably won’t hear about it, since word is the White House isn’t even aware of the Tea Party Movement.

Meanwhile, John in Carolina reports on NC’s premier defender of free speech. At least it used to be. But even the N&O couldn’t ignore this disgrace. We’ll see if the fallout is severe enough to force UNC-Chapel Hill’s chancellor to take punitive action against the students and faculty involved.

Over at Hot Air, Ed Morrissey is on a roll over Obama’s so called smart foreign policy. On piracy, apparently we’re now going to keep the pirates from buying boats. That’ll work out about as well as hitting the “reset button” has with Russia. And zut alors (or even better merde):

The Obama administration spun the European Grand Tour as a tour de force for Barack Obama, even though Obama failed to get any combat troops for Afghanistan, failed to gain Russian cooperation on Iran, and left the American economic agenda at Andrews AFB.

The White House claimed that Obama had set the stage for more respect and cooperation from European allies. However, the Times of London reports that Obama left Nicolas Sarkozy completely unimpressed, and complaining that Obama is “insubstantial”….

I’m not a big Rush Limbaugh fan, but I do like this bit of tongue-in-cheek: “President Obama Ordered the Killing of Three Black Muslim Kids.” Well, Obama does want the credit for rescuing Captain Phillips….

Yeah, see, I don't find that Limbaugh comment very funny. It's just another line in his usual playbook, trying to stoke everything into hateful rhetoric and anger.

On the one hand, he's a clown, but the fact is, a lot of people listen to his vitreol and believe it. It's never helped America; it's solely destructive.

And should we be surprised? Limbaugh would gladly destroy America as long as it collapsed following his preferred ideology.
