As Beck continues to disrobe the corruption surrounding Obama’s presidency, the strategy from the left, as expected, is to try to discredit him. To put it mildly, it’s not working. In fact, it’s making him more popular by the day.
Beck is on a mission, and he and his excellent research staff are relentless. To his enormous credit, he has made it clear that he isn’t afraid of losing everything, if that’s what it takes to get to the truth. And, as the left knows more than any other segment of our society, a man who is willing to lose everything can be very dangerous.
So, whether he likes it or not, and whether or not he will even admit it, Obama is getting sucked into the Palin Trap – in the body and brain of Glenn Beck. And, as with Fox News in general, Obama is once again in a battle he can’t win.
If he tries to ignore Beck, Beck will continue to disrobe Obama through his own written and spoken words. Beck has become a one-man poll-wrecking crew for BHO. He continually shows one video clip after another of BHO blatantly contradicting himself (or, in less delicate terms, lying).
But if Obama chooses to go after Beck, he will get sucked even deeper into the Palin Trap – bringing himself “down” to the level of a mere television personality whom the left is trying ever so hard to dismiss as a right-wing kook. Could you imagine how a teleprompterless Obama would fare in an interview with Beck – being confronted with real questions and an aggressive insistence that he answer them in a serious way?
So, what’s a community organizer to do? The more the fringe media ask BHO about his opinions on the BCS college playoffs or the chances of the Chicago White Sox making it to the playoffs, the more viewers will continue to flee to Fox News – and, in particular, to Beck – to find out what is really going on in the world.
Now, Time magazine has (obviously, inadvertently) made Beck even bigger by featuring him in a cover story in its Sept. 28 edition. Beck now poses the single biggest threat to the establishment of a progressive dictatorship in Washington. Which in turn means that, whether or not Obama likes it, this is going to increasingly become an Obama vs. Beck battle.
The truth of the matter is that the progressive movement no longer needs BHO. Give the man credit, he moved the ball all the way to the five yard line in just a matter of months. But at this point, he may actually be a liability because he is becoming more and more entrapped by his own written and spoken words.
As Obama increasingly gets sucked into Beck’s Palin Trap, it will become ever more clear to White House hacks that a battle with Beck is not winnable – which is why no one should rule out the possibility of the ever-lecherous, always ready to pounce, two-for-the-price-of-one Clintons challenging BHO in 2012 if his comrades in arms go down in flames in 2010.
I would suspect that the HillBillys think often of how Bobby Kennedy challenged Lyndon Johnson in 1968, causing Johnson to resign before Kennedy himself was assassinated.
Stay tuned … this is going to be better than “Dynasty” and “Dallas” at their best
Speaking of soap operas …Did you already guess that ACORN played a big part in Al Franken stealing the Seanate election in Minnesota?
