Once Again, the Democrat Partisans of the Media Pivot Their Defense From "It's Not True and You're Crazy to Believe It's True" to "Of Course It's True, and You're Crazy to Make Such a Big Deal About It"
We saw this script change in the case of Bill Clinton, after the revelation of the Blue Dress.
We saw this script change much more recently in the case of Obama's "If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance lie," when the script flipped from "You're stupid and crazy to doubt Obama" to "Of course you can't keep your insurance, that's at the heart of the program's cost-control measures; you're stupid and crazy to have not realized this sooner!"
And now reliably thoughtless yabbering baboon Donnie Deutsch executes the pivot on Benghazi.
“What about the cover-up for the White House?” Scarborough interjected. “I’ve got everybody here apologizing for the White House. What about a cover-up, Donnie?”
“Why are you jumping to political strategy?” he continued. “So, tell me, what’s the politics of the White House lying about something that we all know they’re lying about?”
“You see the White House spokesperson lying on national television. You see an ABC Newsperson shocked that he’s lying and treating the press corps like they’re stupid. He says it’s not about Benghazi. Republicans and conservatives have been called fools for a year now for saying this happened. They don’t release it with the original the documents. They finally, reluctantly are forced to release it. Then you have the White House lying about it, saying it’s not about Benghazi, and you’re only reaction is, ‘Hey, Republicans better not overreact to the cover-up?’”
“We, as voters, understand both Republicans and Democrats are political animals and are going to manage a crisis to their favor,” Deutsch contested before he was interrupted.
“So, when Democrats cover something up, it’s politics,” Scarborough interjected. “When Republicans cover something up, it’s a scandal.” He closed by calling his co-hosts reaction to the White House’s behavior a “disgrace.”
So Scarborough says "we all know they're lying," and Deutsch finally -- finally -- does not dispute that, but instead chooses to recharacterize the acts of serial lying and cover-up as just some understandable political-animal crisis management.
For eighteen months the line from Obama -- and therefore the line from the White House's communications shops at ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN -- has been that Obama was not a "political animal," and certainly not on a matter of national security.
Now that the Blue Dress Proof of the emails are released, the defense changes to "Of course, this is all obvious, how stupid are you are for dwelling on obvious things."
The Other Defense... suggested by Deutsch (and coming soon from the mouths of every other braindead hack on TV and in print) is that this is such a minor political maneuver -- you know, "Everybody Does It."
Well let's examine that. If this is a very minor transgression, as Deutsch posits, that means that Obama has lied to the entire nation and corrupted its press (to the extent such a thing is further possible) in order to cover up a very minor transgression.
One may understand when a man lies over something extremely consequential. A normal man would do that (a highly ethical man might not, but a normal man would), and would not be branded a habitual liar.
But if a man also lies about inconsequential matters --as Deutsch assures us this is -- then that man is in fact a casual liar, equally given to lying about matters large and small, not discriminating among the profound and trivial, because his preferred mode of expression -- his natural, unthinking mode of expression -- is simply to lie.
So: Is that what is is, then, Donnie?http://ace.mu.nu/
