Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

New MSM meme: You know, Perry isn’t nearly as reasonable as…Bush?

I’ve been reading on the blogosphere various predictions that the MSM would begin attacking Rick Perry by trying to show him as less acceptable than their previous target of obsessive hate, George W. Bush.  Well, the predictions are beginning to come true.

Enter CNN.  The video clip at the link is for a piece they call “Rick Perry is George W. Bush on steroids”.  Seriously, that’s what they call it.  Their “contributor”, Will Cain, does his best to lay out the case against a man who has been in the race less than two weeks.  Ed has a different take than Cain, unsurprisingly:

Besides, if we’re talking about the Left’s idea of Bush on steroids — a unilateralist cowboy who starts wars, as is mentioned in this clip — doesn’t Barack Obama qualify better than Perry after refusing to get Congressional approval for American military action?

CNN, though, needs to pace themselves.  They added another “Perry makes us miss Bush” piece, this one courtesy of an anti-Bush columnist.

Let that sink in for a second.  The MSM has a strange new respect for a man they spent over eight years demonizing!  It’s like that “Bush is evil!  OK, scratch that, Bush may have sucked and wanted women, children, and Iraqi goat herders to be be waterboarded, but at least he was more reasonable and temperate than Rick Perry!”

If this is the line of the attack that the MSM is going to run with, then I have officially found my candidate for 2012.  Rick Perry is driving the MSM so crazy that they are beclowning themselves by pining away for the good ol’ days of Chimpy McHitlerburton.  If the MSM sees Perry as that much of a threat, then he has my backing for sure.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

  1. No surprise here. They just shifted their focus to the new guy in the race. They’ll try to demonize anyone who is not an obvious leftie. I’m not sure about Perry, he has a lot of stories surrounding him, i.e., the NAFTA highway, the forced inoculations for HPV in TX, etc. I’ll wait and see before I decide.

  2. There are going to be problems with anyone that runs or gets elected to the presidency. It’s the lesser of two evils.
