Right - nobody on the left ever questions what Obama does. You are on fire today Nedsy.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good schtick.

So you're saying that the LSM's "reporting" on Obama leading up to the 2008 coronation was schtick?

Finally, something we can agree on.

Ned, the only things we agree on are some of the finer points of 80s culture and Madison night life.

On political topics, you're a one-trick hamster.

Since Ned made a concerted "oh look over here" effort, let's repeat these numbers again:

Good idea beenie. Let's remind everyone what Obama's fellow Democrat leaders have said about him:

Senator Harry Reid (D) Nevada:
Barack Obama – whom he described as a "light skinned" African-American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one"

Vice President Joe Biden (D) Mars:
"the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."

William Jefferson Clinton (D) Ex-POTUS, Universal Stud:
Former President Bill Clinton's efforts to persuade Sen. Edward M. Kennedy to endorse his wife's presidential bid fell flat when Clinton told the Democratic lawmaker that just a few years ago, "Obama would have been serving the pair coffee."

Hillary Clinton (D) New York:
(Obama is) a truly inspirational speaker who has not done the spade work....

I swear to Bob some folks were kind of complimenting you the other day, somewhere on this forum, for some reason.

Of course, the fact that he resorts to these kinds of distractions demonstrates that Ned realizes just how damning those survey answers really are.

Congrats, Ned! You're actively working to dumb down the country. How does it feel to be un-American?

What the hell is a "diety"? Some sort of new diet dance?

Stella, did you just agree that the left doesn't question Obama?

Without even trying I came up with:

http://www.democracynow.org/2012/2/23/s ... a_election

and just about every other thing that Glenn Greenwald writes.

Feingold questioning President Obama's "czars" or his acceptance of SuperPac money is nothing more than dropping a few phrases of empathy for the suckers in the Democrats liberal base. Instead of "czars" he should have questioned from day one President Obama's stocking of his administration with corporatists, Wall St. errand boys, warmongers, free trade cheerleaders and labor haters. Rabble, are you ready to testify?

So, the issue is not that the left never questions him, it's that the questioning is insufficient (in your opinion). It's a matter of degree, right?

It is a matter of airbrushing, co-opting, neutralizing and obliterating.
