Obama finally admitted he is a socialist. Everything else he says is a lie. The NY Post:
Buried in the 17th paragraph of one of those mewling New York Times pieces on the woes of Obama — can we start calling him Woe-bama yet? — appeared these two words: “going Bulworth.”
Obama himself, the Times explained, has been “longingly” telling his inner circle that what he’d really like to do is what Sen. Jay Bulworth, played by Warren Beatty in his 1998 movie “Bulworth,” did: to go public as an unabashed, angry and admitted socialist.
It’s as if Ronald Reagan had been caught saying he wanted to “Go Strangelove.”
In confessing his dreams of “going Bulworth,” Obama confirmed that what he thinks and what he says out loud are two different things. He let slip the mask of a center-left moderate — a “pragmatist” who only cares about “what works.” The press and even right-of-center columnists like Ross Douthat and David Brooks have always insisted that this completely unconvincing masquerade is genuine.
For those who aren’t movie buffs, Bulworth portrayed a veteran Senator losing his latest campaign, who makes some drunken admissions… you get the picture. But back to the present.
Of course, you can’t expect the NYT to admit to anything but flat-out fluffing when it comes to The Won.
Don’t believe me? Read the thing for yourself and see if you don’t want a shower after all the wah-wah-wah, OurBoyIsBeingPickedOn hand-wringing.
Ace rightly called it “pillow-talk”
Likewise, the rest of the media will never ask about this provocative statement. They understand that this was just pillow-talk intended to stay between lovers, and not intended for wider dissemination.
The incestuous corruption runs so deep, we may not have a historical precedent for comparison. Any historians out there want to weigh in?
