The far-left liberals can’t stop looking back, despite the millions they and their sugar daddy George Soros have invested in their MoveOn.org web site (and Media Matters and other online outposts) and despite that whole “progressive” moniker.
Today, Alec Baldwin, terrible actor and Bush-hating liberal who fancies himself an astute political adviser of sorts (and apparently liberals all cling to every word on the basis that he’s an experienced Hollywood actor), once again writes in the far-left Huffington Post blog. For reference, this is where the state-owned CBC seems to get so many of their guest “experts” (they get some of the rest from the even more radically left-wing Daily Kos).
It’s another stellar endorsement for Barrack Hussein Obama instead of Hillary (Clinton—not Duff), but Baldwin can’t let go of the past while he’s at it:
”…In spite of her superior capabilities in many areas, Obama would still move into the White House with more foreign policy experience than George Bush had when Bush and his brother stole the election in 2000…”
Still not over 2000. Huh. That’s forward-looking. Didn’t Baldwin get the “Change” memo? And he does know that Bush isn’t running, yes?
I wouldn’t personally base my endorsement on Obama’s “foreign policy experience”, when his most famous foreign policy initiative so far has been to promise to unilaterally bomb Pakistan (for a “change”!) in order to kick al-Qaeda butt.
On the other hand he also doesn’t bother to question what in tarnation Obama is talking about generally, in all those grandiose rhythmic speeches in which one young women faints exactly 6 rows dead-center in front of Obama nearly every time. Come to think of it, Obama’s speeches have much in common with Hollywood props and stage sets (and the all those stars themselves), so maybe it’s a feeling of familiarity that he’s looking for. Hillary’s “tears” just weren’t up to his performance standard, which is saying a lot about those tears.
For review, Baldwin is the tolerant, compassionate, nuanced liberal who once wrote (in that same Huffington Post blog that the CBC seems to love):
• “Cheney is a terrorist. He terrorizes our enemies abroad and innocent citizens here at home indiscriminately.”
(Notice how liberals are loathe to call actual terrorists “terrorists”, but have no problem calling President Bush or Dick Cheney a “terrorist”? Similarly, the state-owned CBC calls the war on terror the “so-called war on terror”, but maybe they’re just making the point that it’s the wrong war —and we’re just fighting the wrong enemy!)
He also said or wrote:
• (Eight days before President Bill Clinton was to be impeached, on national television, then later apologized): ”…if we were in another country… we would stone [Republican] Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families…” (—via Wikipedia)
• Called Sean Hannity (one of the most successful talk-radio hosts in decades and co-host of one of the most popular political discussion shows on cable news, and of course a conservative)… “a no-talent whore.”
• Screamed at his 12-year-old daughter on a cell phone for minutes on end, calling her a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”
…and so much more. So that Obama has some solid support.
I expect to see Alec Baldwin as a guest expert very soon on CBC Newsworld. He’ll be asked to discuss John McCain of course, and perhaps about our liberal-left’s plans for state-run national daycare (and “early learning” —wink!) program.
