How do I know that the Presidential campaign of Jon (I keep calling him "John", out of habit, altthough he actuually spells his first name incorrectly) Huntsman is dead? It is because Hunsman was FORMERLY the "Great White Hope" of the media. But the mainstream media is abandoning Huntsman, in favor of Romney, and that tells yoiu the attempt by the media to boost Huntsman has FAILED. Huntsman was the media candidate, because the leftists of the media considered him the most LEFT of the Republican candidates. That would not have stopped the liars (see previous article) of the mainstream media from calling Huntsman an "extreme right winger", and a MORMON (horros!!!!!), AFTER he got the Republican nomination. You should never forget that the peopple of the media are partisan propagandists for one man: BARACK OBAMA. But they are willing to hedge their bets by getting the Republicans to nominate someone most similar to the type of leftist that the media wants running this country. But how do I know that the media has given up on Huntsman (a real loser, by the way, in last night's debate)? It is because of this headline:
"Rick Perry makes Mitt Romney a stronger contender" (from the despicable AP, as featured on AT&T/Yahoo: BOYCOTT AT&T and Yahoo exactly foatring this kind of propaganda).
The above headline signals a switch in media allegiance from John Huntsman to Mitt Romney. What is the goal of the above quoted headline? Don't be absurd. The goal is NOT to "give us information". That is the last thing in which the AP is interested. The goal is to STOP RICK PERRY. Now I am telling you that the media is a part of the campaign arm of Barack Obama. And it may be true that many (not necessarily most) in the mianstream media may believe that Rick Perry is easier for Barack Obama to beat than Rick Perry. But this is one area where leftists don't want to take any chances. They would rather take their chance that Mitt Romney will be harder for Obama to beat, rather than face the real possibility that Rick Perry will be President of the United States (this media/leftist hostility being the best thing that Perry has going for him). Now I actaully think Rick Perry has the POTENTIAL to be harder for Barack Obama to beat than Mitt Romney, and I think many--maybe even most--in the mainstream media think the same way. Why is that? It is because Perry shows signs of real CHARISMA.. Mitt Romney has the "charisma" of your average rock. The media may think, honestly, that they will have an easier time sticking a LABEL on Rick Perry as an "extremist", but they are really AFRAID of charisma on the right. Many of them take to heart the lesson of Ronald Reagan, who the media also thought they could label as "extreme". No. I don't especailly like Rick Perry, you are an idiot to believe that it is easy to dismiss him as "extremist". Texas is a BIG state, even if a sane (conservative) state. You don't get to be governor of Texas for 11 years, and counting, by being some sort of wild-eyed "extremist".
Note the apparent INCOMPETENCE of the AP headline. My Sodom and Gomorrah search--my futile search--for an honest and competent AP reporter continues. The AP headline, and really the story, suggest that Romney is GLAD to run against Perry, because Perry is merely a foil who makes Romney appear "reasonable" and "moderate". Nonsense. And the propagandists of the AP know it is nonsense. Without Perry in the race, Romney had a clear shot at the nomination. The only ting standing between Romney and the nomination was Romney himself Sure, it is possible that "modrates" (or leftists like those of the AP) will look more favorably upon Romney as they are exposed to Perry . But Romney ALREADY HAD THAT with Bachmnn and the other, mocre conservativ, candidates in the race. The only way that specifically PERRY makes Romney a "stronger" contender in the gneral election is because Peerry may SCARE the media into giving Romney more favorable coverage. Remember that the media, in 2008, labeled Romney as a "right winger" taking on media "moderate" McCain (who then became a "right winger" himself in the general election against Obama). Nope. This AP story is not about information. It is about AGENDA and PROPAGANDA> Romney AND the media are SCARED of Rick Perry: scared that he might actually win the nomination, and the media is scared he might then actually be able to win the general election.
An explanation about my headline. It does not mean what you may think it means. It is meant as doubly ironic and tongue -in-cheek. The term "Great White Hope" arose as a racially tinged term coming out of BOXING. The idea was that boxing was being destroyed (as a "sport" that people wanted to watch) by black heavyweight champions who were often the kind of people who made "white people" uncomfortable. Think Sonny Liston and Mike Tyson here (although the term arose before either of them--especailly before Tyson). . The idea was that "white people" especailly did ot hanker to see nothing but black men wh were even contenders for the championship. The sort of racist idea here was that "white people" needed a high profile "white' boxer to at least ROOT FOR. Well, I am obviously NOT using "Great White Hope" in that context. I am NOT looking for a "white hope" (in the literal sense) to take on black Barack Obama. In fact, I would be MORE LIKELY to support Herman Cain against Barack Obama than to support either Romney or Perry (although I have not made a final judgment on Roney, and especially Perry). And my headline does not refer to me anyway, but to the MEDIA "Great White Hoppe". The media is not trying to recruit a "white" person to run against black Barack Obama. But the media does have a priniple at work here which is similar to the "principle' that drove the search for a "white" boxer to "save" boxing. We are luckily past the time of this kind of racial idiocy, except on the left (which still looks at race instead of individual merit).
What is the (ironic) meaning of "Great White Hope", in the context of the media and Repubicans? Eaasy. What the media is looking for is the "Great Liberal Hope" to "sae" the Republican Party from those evil conservatives, Tea Party people, and peoiple who actually bellieve in their religion (instead of comfortably making it clear, like Barack Obama, that they claim to be "Christian" because that is the political thing to do). Now the media realizes that they have an uphill battle getting THEIR kind of "liberal" to ake over the Repubican Party. Their support of Jon Huntsman had an aura of "whistling past a cemetery at night". I don't think that even the mdia ever believed that Huntsman was going to go anywhere in the Repubkcan Presidenttial race. There once were real liberals with influence in the Republican Party (Nelson Rockefeller, and those other Eastern liberals very much reduced). Now the best the media can come up with is MITT ROMNEY--a person who you will remember I SUPPORTED for President in 2008, although I don't kow if I can do it again. The media people must be tearing out their hair that they have been reduced to this, just to STOP RICK PERRY.
I have to watch muyself that I don't get too enthusiastic about Perry, ujsut because the media hates Perry so much. The enemy of my enemy may be a "friend", but I still have a "wait and see" attitude on Perry. The media, however, has set out to destroy Perry. As stated, that is the best thing that Perry has going for him.
P.S. No proofreading or spell checking (bad eyesight). By the way, Perry did fine in the Republican debate last night---better than in the previous debate. He maybe needs to gt past this "back-and-forth" with Romney, but it is basically forced on him by a media out to get him (Perry), and by a Romney RUNNING SCARED. Yes, Romney is on the verge of running a negative campaign againt Perry, aided and abetteed by the media, and that will SINK Romney for me. Romney may not believe he is losing much there--not only because I have little infuence but beause alreday reached the edge of declaring that I can never vote for Mitt Romney for President, even against Barack Obama. And this has almost nothing to do with RomneyCare, which already exited when I ws willing to give Romney the benefit of the doubt in 2008. Romney is just showing me every day that he really does have no principles, other than a desire to be President of the Untied States. As I have stated, there is one thing I jsut can no longer stand: "politics as usual". Romney is almost becomng the poster child of "politics as usual".
