This is too easy a post. I mean even my most adamant leftist friends admit that a clear double standard has existed from the beginning of Obama’s term in office. Of course only when no one else was listening. Like when Obama appointed a tax cheat as head of the I.R.S. for example. It was a safe bet that had Bush done so, there would be a national if not global crisis of deafness as a result of the shrieking of the left and media in general.
As a rule, VTB has at least attempted to not post anything about Obama unless it was a matter of direct impact on Islam in the west and the jihad in general, like Obama’s truly horrific speech in Cairo last year, or irrational leftism like the ACORN stories.
This is neither. But I simply cannot contain myself on the matter of the grotesque double standard. Bush was attacked for taking six minutes to respond to 911 when no one was expecting anything like it, as he read from a children’s book at a class for grade six. Obama took as many days to respond to the Fort Hood shooting and everyone is expecting Islamic terrorism even if no one is allowed to call it that.
Then we have this:
Frankly I thought this was a photoshop. No one outside of the set of Dexter can be this pathologically egomaniacal. Then I saw these which contained the image below:
But this goes beyond a gentle poke at the left and their selective myopia. The fact that the president of the United States uses a rig like this to speak to kids in grade six is itself a sad sad reflection of this man’s self image for good or for bad. I mean who needs a podium with your title on it and two microphones to speak to a couple of dozen kids sitting within 30 feet of you?
I would venture a guess that whoever does, is not a well man.
Lastly, if you choose to listen to the Cairo speech in the link at the top, investigate his claims about Islamic invention. They are themselves, invention, and where they are not, they are grotesque and perverse distortions of important historical facts. Search for the history of the U.S. marines, and why Jefferson had a Koran. There are too many misrepresentations of history and fact to list, but for those with an eye to research, investigating the claims in that that speech will yield some surprises.

UPDATE: Jammie wearing fool reports this rig was used for the media afterwards. Not sure that changes one thing though.
