On Useful Idiots and Obama: Jorn Barger at Daily Pundit Nails it

by the Left Coast Rebel

One of the most disconcerting things about the prolific rise of the Obamanation in American press (from gossip rags to daily front page features of 'mainstream' press and the network news) was the deaf ear and eye to the man's radicalism (not to mention mentors - Frank Marshall Davis, anyone?). Withouth the useful idiots that surround us, from WSJ columnist Peggy Noonan to 'conservative' former representative J.C. Watts, the circle wouldn't have been complete. Jorn Barger at Daily Pundit gives thanks (sort of) to the useful idiots among us:

Listen up, you punked, chumped boobs: We looked at Obama not through your rose colored hallucinations, but through the cold, clear spectacles of reality. None of what he’s done since has surprised us one bit. In fact, many of us, myself included, predicted it even before his coronation by people like you. Yes, it’s nice that after a year and a half of horrible examples, the truth about him is finally beginning to penetrate your skulls. But why, for the love of god, couldn’t you see it at the beginning, when it was no less obvious, but your understanding of it might have done some good?

And offers up a prediction:

Actually, never mind. Since Obama’s election will turn out to be the worst thing to happen to the leftist project in America in the past hundred years, and will free a generation from the chains of leftist quackery at just the time such freedom is most sorely needed, I actually thank our lucky stars for useful idiots like you two. Without such, we might have been saddled with John McCain, and that would truly have been a disaster for conservatism, liberty, and America.

Interesting, I sure hope the last section is true.
