Like Munich?

November 27, 2013 - Harry Eagar
The rightwing noise machine is nothing if not well-oiled (especially Bill O'Reilly, notorious drunkard), and it is a kind of pleasure to watch them in motion, like a synchronized swimming team in the Passaic River.

Today's theme was that Obama's Iran proposal was "like Munich." Well, except that the US is a military power, and Britain and France were not in 1938; and no national boundaries are being changed; no armies are marching; and millions of people are not being driven from their homes.

I was moving about today and did not have time to sample all the sewage, but Hannity was on board (expressing shock that Obama was "negotiating with terrorists," something Ronald Reagan would never do); and Cal Thomas was on the same theme in the newspapers.

UPDATE: I occurs to me that younger and/or foreign readers may be puzzled by the reference to the Passaic River. Back before the liberals ruined everything with their "EPA" and their "regulations" and their "clean water," the Passaic was a notoriously foul stream through the industrial district of northern New Jersey.

I was in college in the '60s, and a friend from New Jersey used to joke about swimming the Passaic crawl -- an overhead stroke with the right arm while holding left arm crooked in front of your face to fend off floaters; or what the students from Massachusetts called Charles River trout.

Fox news and reporters are there to discredit President Obama and propogate people to hate and cause a conspiracy for failure. With failure as evidence they can find evidence for impeachment. President Obama is not failing but burdened with extra "speed bumps" in his path.

I watch them open minded but I do not like their approach to presenting news. I would listen more, if only they spoke in a way, that is not dramatizing news but telling me a story. Again I say that many comment but by sprouting assumptions, they create loopholes and an easy attack. Facts are only when an assumption becomes real and numbers or percentage is just an approximation. Albert Einstein was just as much a Philosopher as he was a Scientist. Theory of Relativity. For every action there is a reaction. Life is such.

Truth is, the Iran proposal is nothing like Munich, and Hannity and Thomas are ignoramuses. Ignoramuses with an agenda.

It seems not to have occurred to them or to Lindsey Graham or Netanyahu that if negotiations are not an option, even in principle (whatever the substance of the current talks may be), then the only alternative is war.

If they don't get that, they're idiots; and if they aren't idiots, they are trying (successfully so far) to deceive you.

"The truth will set you free" When the truth is your sheild nothing the left can say or write will hurt you. Is that why you both hate O'Rielly, Hannity, Judge Pirros and others because you can't stand the truth? Let the truth set you free. God Bless & have a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.?

The same reason I find you a doppess like your side kick johngault. Seems johnornellas I was waiting for you to come out of your hole. Your head is so deep up, even golytely won't help you drain it. The reason is, I will only tell you in person.

I notice about anyone like o'really, hannity, judge pirros and others is they contradict themselves and when they loop when they shouldn't you can catch them. Just have to wait for that moment when they drop their shields.
