The Emperor’s Magic New Debate

It's hard to tell that the emperor is naked, if you never see him next to a man with clothes on.

The pathological investment of the media in Obama demanded that he be larger than life, so they made him larger than life. Like idiot tinsmiths, they made their own god and forgot that they made him and that being made of tin, he will melt if the temperature is high enough.

The cult of Obama has needed to believe in him. And at the debate he let them down by not being extraordinary and by seeming only human next to Romney. The media had been complaining for a while that the magic was gone. But the “magic”, as with so many of these trends, is not in the speaker, it’s in the audience.

Years ago the media had already become atheists in denial, trying hard to recapture the magic of ’08 and blaming themselves and then their man for not feeling it anymore. The truth is that after Bush they needed someone to believe in and they found him. Obama’s extraordinary nature was as fake as the rest of his bio. He wasn’t special, he was just there when they needed him. Now he isn’t.

Obama was a story that the left told itself and then they told it to us. The debate doesn’t end the story, but it hurts the story. Belief is reserved for extraordinary things. Faith is for amazing things, not for ordinary politicians who do the minimum amount of work and stand there droning on stage about technical differences. Only fools put their faith in that.

It’s hard to tell that the emperor is naked, if you never see him next to a man with clothes on. Unique, you come to think that it’s perfectly normal for him to be naked. That this is what an emperor is. And no matter how many small boys shout, “The emperor is naked”, that doesn’t change. Small boys shout things all the time. Who pays attention to them?

It’s when the emperor struggles into his pants, one leg at a time, and poses for a photo with a prospective emperor, then the sense of wrongness sets in and the emperor with pants on seems more naked than he ever did before.

    What is tragic is that the voters were conned into buying Barry Hussein by the sinister elite and their media whores and even after he has been exposed as a dangerous threat to Israel and an unmitigated fraud that 65% of Jews in America still plan to vote for him. That tells us of the hopeless nature of the death wish Jews in the US who have given their false messiah the best rope money can buy to hang them.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.
