CNN’s Jeff Greenfield has lost his mind

There are a lot of people in the media who have lost touch with the nation, but CNN's Jeff Greenfield has lost touch with human reality.

He's so far gone, it's an insult to out of touch people to call him merely "out of touch." The man has lost it, utterly and completely.


According to this CNN-endorsed lunatic, if you wear a jacket, a collared shirt and no tie, you are emulating the radical conservative ruler of Iran.

GREENFIELD SAYS OBAMA IS DRESSING LIKE IRANIAN PRESIDENT

Oh gawd! So, it now begins. It didn't take long for the media to start their attack on Obama. Looks like we are in for two years of sillyness about Barak's choice of clothing.

Remember this steaming pile of bullshit from the 2000 election?

Earth-Tone Deaf
Style matters — and Gore lacks it.


7/19/00
Robert A. George is an editorial page writer
for the New York Post


Most people have examined Al Gore's and George W. Bush's competing Sunday appearances from the standpoint of substance: Did they have command of the issues? Were they presidential? Enough of that. Believing that we will never fully leave the age of Clinton, it's this columnist's opinion that style will count for 60 percent of the eventual nominee's final grade.

Given that, things don't look too good for the vice president. He appeared completely defensive throughout his hour with Tim Russert. Part of that was because Russert — always a tough interview — was positively manic this time. He looked like he was going to burst out of his chair and go straight for Gore's throat. In the face of this assault, Gore looked completely passive — and looked stranger than he should have. Then, it suddenly seemed obvious why this was the case: The suit. Al's suit.

It was not the traditional dark blue/black "power" suit we expect our big-time pols to wear. Instead, it was a brown-tan; it was earth tones. Uh-oh, I sense a Naomi Wolf sighting. Girlfriend must really be back in charge! Now, aside from the fact that Russert's suit was dark, Gore suffered in another way with this odd fashion selection.

He became almost invisible as he blended in with the background of his Naval Observatory study. The furniture was also various types of oak and teal. In a sense, it's not surprising for the avowed environmentalist to appear in an earth-friendly ambiance. But, combined with Gore's bronzed tan, it was often difficult to see where the man ended and the background began. Yes, this seems almost a trivial matter. But appearances do count.

This is especially true for an Al Gore who is trying to emerge from Bill Clinton's shadow. There's a good reason why these suits are called power suits. Earth tones might give a sense of relaxation in a casual setting. But the way the game is played in politics, a sit-down with Meet the Press — especially when you've got the whole hour — is not "casual." It's very much business; indeed, it's something of a war environment. Worse, the appearance ended up making Gore look the opposite of relaxed. A suit can only do so much.

George W., on the other hand, wore a more traditional dark blue suit in the Texas Governor's Mansion. Now, it's true that This Week is a lot easier on interviewees than Meet the Press. Russert is a tenacious bulldog and may be the most ruthlessly objective (his Democratic background aside) in the business. Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts are clear liberals, but generally they are milquetoasts when it comes to grilling a subject — regardless of the victim's affiliation. But, putting that caveat aside, it remains true that Bush just generally appeared calmer, low-key and in command; he seemed more presidential than Gore. Another way of saying this is that George W. Bush seemed comfortable in his own skin in a way that Al Gore did not.

These repubs are pathetic. Somehow this has to be removed from politics. This is just another example of how little these people regard debate and discussion to resolve issues. It is their job to ensure that America remains divided along political preferential lines. Which side is offering the best most believable lies, and who with division, threats and bribes can rule! Why not try bi-partisanship, information and truth!

This is the crap they subtly work into the dialogue-

Quote:
The United Church of Christ is very anti-Israel and supports divestment. It also sponsors speeches at its many functions by the Arab "Christian" pro-terror religious organization, Sabeel. Sabeel holds some of its biggest meetings in Chicago., (www.scoop.,co, nz/stories/HL05 10/500139.htm).

The Democrats attract the majority of Jewish voters and funding, and this guy is being grooned as their golden boy?

Essentially Obama is a Christian convert--but also then a Muslim apostate.

In response the editor observes-
Quote:
And so there we have it: A whisper campaign accusing Barak Obama of being a Muslim who converted to Christianity just to pretend he was an infidel, so he could get his hands on the U.S. nuclear codes and blow up America. Barack Obama, in other words--according to this Republican gang smear campaign--is a terrorist sleeper cell.


It seems that they are only intent on acquiring power to do what they will with, especially to engage in wars of profit. But this may blow up in their faces . I'm sure the Romans felt they were above their demise as well. As Jeffrey Feldman, the author states-
Quote:
For starters, those of us with an interest in protecting our political system from smear gangs must be fearless in the face of this fear and hate. Intimidation is the tactic of these smear gangs. Our silence is their goal. Speaking back is the best way to stop them.

And the best way we can speak back is to frame their actions in no uncertain terms--to call them what they are:

- "Americans will not allow these Republican smear gangs to take over our political system anymore!"

- "These whisper campaigns accusing Democrats of being covert terrorists are the work of Republican gangs."

- "Swiftboated yesterday, accused of terrorism today--these smear gangs must be stopped!"


Those phrases can get us started by drawing attention to the immoral and organized groups behind these tactics.

We must stop them before they damage our political system even more than they already have.


The Repubs must be really scared of Obama to aim their sights on him. Keep up the pressure on these American Repug Splinter Cells and destroy them. Hunt them like the terrorists they are, bent on undermining the American ideal with their own version of democratically designated dictatorial totalitarianism. When gangs can dictate for the agents of oppression, then America has slipped further into the miasma of extremist fascism- and hiding behind a phony democracy is not going to keep the world from figuring it out.

Again the subtle allusions to his patriotism and allegiance-
Quote:
What if Obama’s into Pious Fraud Islam–Hudaibiyah treaty"kiss the hand of your enemy until you can cut it off"? (www.freerepubl ic.com/focus/ne ws/708295/posts. Not Obama? Remember the pictures of the little kids bobbing their heads up and down at the madrassas? They are all of the age Obama would have been in back in Indonesia.


Racism, bigotry hatred, all espoused here by a vile evil segment of society.This is the true evil of devils out to destroy the world, and you don't have to look any further than the depths of depravity that these swiftboat mentality gangs have endoctrinated in their propaganda. Dr Joeseph Goebbels would be proud of this group of neo-conazis!

I am more convinced now that Obama is a solid democratic choice for change, compromise and correction to the American political scene. Obama should be half of the ticket to the Whitehouse. I think the Repugs are afraid that He could be a better choice than the AIPAC influenced Lieberman.

Thanks shoeless for the follow up on this article.

Extra addendum- I though this was a good read from the Goebbels speech from New Years Eve 1938/39. Talk about a deciding orator. He was the silver tongued devil himself!
(For a list of Dr. Mouthpieces propaganda, check this site)- http://www.calvin.edu/academic/cas/gpa/goebmain.htm

Despite his claim that complainers are not worth dealing with, he devotes a major part of the speech to denouncing those who failed to share his faith in Adolf Hitler.

Quote:
As long as we are speaking of miracles, it is worth asking why the National Socialist government has been so blessed with miracles, but not its predecessors. In those preceding governments, there was usually a party that never tied of maintaining that it had particularly close relations with God. Still, there were no miracles. They waited for one. They did not happen. <snip> ...This ability to believe is rather weak in some circles, above all in those with money and education. They may trust more in pure cold reason than a glowing idealistic heart. Our so-called intellectuals do not like to hear this, but it is true anyway. They know so much that in the end they do not know what to do with their wisdom. They can see the past, but not much of the present, and nothing at all of the future. Their imagination is insufficient to deal with a distant goal in a way such that one already thinks it achieved. <snip> ...In the closing hours of the old year, we Germans join for the first time in a great national community and give our warm and fervent thanks to the Almighty, who so blessed our land in this last year. We pray that he give the Führer strength and health. May he rest always in God's divine grace!

We promise the Führer that we will remain his most obedient and loyal followers.
Good thing god was on Germany's side EH? In gods divine grace- Really!

If style is what makes a man or a woman, then the prez and the first lady are total failures. Bush always wears that same ugly light blue shirt...you all know the one. He rolls it up to his hairy elbows when he wants to look like he's working with the peons. :roll: Now and then he does change his tie, but not often. Bush is always wearing that same ugly smirk on his face. He always looks like he needs more sleep, but that's no surprise...he's prolly been up drinking all night. It's not worry putting those wrinkles in his face, and I doubt that it's the Texas sun, either.

Laura Bush is the frumpiest first lady that has been in the White House since Bess Truman. Barney looks better than both of them when all three of them appear in public.

I like the crack about Barney. I was just wondering if the twins know how much their father is despised by the public. Or, are they sheltered from these kinds of realities?

I don't know, Just...they're probably sheltered, although I don't see how they can be completely unaware as to how their father is the most hated man on the planet. Unless of course, they inherited their father's mental capabilities.

I fear that Jeff Greenfield is showing all the depth of a smurf-sized petri dish. What matters about a political candidate is not a fashion sense --- which can be shared with millions of others -- but that person's positions. These silly attacks show both desperation and cowardice.

As for the Bush girls, I hope that one day they will realize the damage that their father's administration has done to America, this country's reputation, and the world. Perhaps they will be moved to try to repair some of this damage -- which would be ironic and fitting.

True, will...but unfortunately, there are a vast number of Americans who put more emphasis on how someone dresses, or is perceived to dress according to how the media describe him or her, than on whether or not that person is qualified for the job he or she might be seeking.
