There is so much blame to go around in the incredible FUBAR* surrounding the knee-jerk firing of USDA employee Shirley Sherrod that we need a massive manhunt to round up all the suspects.
Leading the cast of screwups, of course, is serial liar Andrew Breibart and his co-conspirators at Fox News. Even among the bottom feeders of the right-wing, Breibart tops the scumbag list. He’s a vile creature with no regard for the truth or even basic human decency. When you combine his penchant for character assassination with the trial by innuendo nature of Fox News you have an unfettered propaganda machine.
But even worse than than the propagandist feces of Breibart, et. al, was the willingness of the left to let he and his mud-slingers motivate them into inane and stupid actions, be it the overreact without thinking remarks of the NAACP to the incredible ineptitude of Barack Obama’s black comedy of errors administration in mishandling the entire mess.
While Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack appears willing to fall on his sword for the knee-jerk firing of Sherrod for something she didn’t do, the real blame lies at 1600 Pennsylvania and our not ready for prime time President who continues to let the right-wing yank his chain.
At one time some of us thought Obama was smart. He’s not. He’s an idiot in a job he can’t handle, floundering helplessly from one crisis to another without the slightest grasp of reality.
Not only is this inept President incapable of dealing with serious issues like a failing economy, his escalating war in Afghanistan or the worst environmental crisis in history in the Gulf of Mexico, his White House can’t even deal effectively with an obvious smear campaign by a lying blogger with a history of distorting the truth.
Obama has become a massive, irretreivable, embarrassing failure. We can no longer afford to look the other way simply because he is America’s first black President. He’s a screwup who — with the help of the corrupt Democratic leadership of Congress — has destroyed the hope and promise that swept him into office in 2008. With luck, voters will wake up in 2012 and send him into well-deserved political oblivion.
Sherrod says she needs time to think about the offer of a new job from the United States Department of Agriculture.
People need to think twice before working for the likes of Barack Obama.
