Many of us have known for a very long time that nothing, and I mean NOTHING is done by accident with this administration. Y’all have realized by now that every single event surrounding this “residency” is planned, orchestrated, rehearsed, and every possible contingency is taken into account before the event is allowed to happen. You know this, right?
At least five times today I stated that the ‘the police acted stupidly’ comment made by Bambi on Wednesday night was so over the top that it had to be an actual planned event with the distinct possibility that it was a distract and deflect measure. That may not be the only reason, but it is the usual one with the Bambi think tank inside the WH. He knew exactly what he was going to say if he had to walk it back, and he gets an “F” for his apology. He never meant to apologize. Put this whole situation into perspective; how long did it take Barack Obama to make mention of the killing of Private William Long by the islamic jihadist?
It seems Rush has the same thought process, (I should be frightened, I know), and he passionately states everything that we have been saying to each other and screaming at our TVs for quite some time.
So smartypants readers; here is the walking back video and you tell me why he made such an incredibly stupid comment. What was the outcome that he was trying to achieve with all the news coverage of his comment and the ensuing media circus surrounding it? Slow the momentum of his tanking numbers, give cover to Nancy and Rahm while they twisted the arms of the Blue Dogs, steal the camera from the republicans hammering his handling of the economy tied to healthcare….?
