Still the Media Swoons

Barack Hussein Obama is worried. He knows he's going to lose his rubber stamp in a week and a half and that he will be forced to deal with a hostile Congress for the second half of his term as president. He's masking his concerns by claiming that he just wants fair elections and transparent campaign funding. Strange talk coming from a hypocrite who promised all of that in his own run for the White House, yet failed to follow through on any of it.

Obama is running around telling his crowd that the Republicans are receiving money from foreign corporations and big business, all with virtually no evidence to back up such absurd notions. And still, his acolytes in the media believe that he can do no wrong.

They forget - or ignore - the fact that Obama was the largest recipient of donations from BP Oil, not only a large corporation, but a foreign one. Obama says that the Republicans are receiving money and that we have "no way of knowing where it's coming from", yet again, the media neglects to mention his own mysterious cash from anonymous online donors. And there actually is evidence that he received cash from foreign interests.

In August of 2008, Aaron Klein of World Net Daily wrote about two Palestinian brothers from Gaza who gave the Obama campaign nearly $30,000. From the article, first paragraph:
JERUSALEM – Palestinian brothers inside the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip are listed in government election filings as having donated $29,521.54 to Sen. Barack Obama's campaign.
The brothers, Monir Edwan and Hosam Edwan, claimed that they merely "bought t-shirts" from Obama's campaign because they - and many others - wanted Obama to be president. That's a strange statement that should have raised a few eyebrows, but elicited little more than a yawn from the media. Equally perplexing is the fact that the brothers, living in Gaza, were able to get a shipment of t-shirts delivered, considering that Israel had in place a tight blockade. More from Klein's piece:

But Edwan could not explain how he managed to get shipments of T-shirts into the Gaza Strip during the months he claimed to have purchased the merchandise, since Israel imposed a tight closure of the Gaza Strip starting in June 2007 that lasted until June 2008, when the Israeli government agreed to a cease-fire with Hamas in Gaza.
"We don't want to cause any damage to Obama's campaign," was Edwan's reply.
Edwan said he wants Obama to be president.
"Not just the people in Gaza but people from all over the world are rooting for this great man," he told WND.
The Obama campaign at the time stated that the money was returned, but the Edwans say they never saw any money. Cue the crickets, the media didn't care, yet again. Now Obama, and Biden, are claiming that the Republicans may be receiving some sort of nefarious money?

Add to this the incredibly outrageous reports that illegal immigrants are openly canvassing for Democratic votes on the west coast. That is wrong on so many levels, I scarcely know where to begin. The Democrats simply have no shame, although they really have no need for it. No one is saying a word about it on the networks or the major publications, so they are led to believe that it's perfectly fine to break the rules.

I would love to know how bad this electoral bloodbath looming on the horizon would be if the media actually did its job and actually informed the people.

The media jumps all over McConnell for his one and done comment and ignores "the back seat" classless comment by Obama. Nothing about taxpayer funded union ads but plenty on the Chamber of Commerce.
It's too obvious and frustrating.

What's really frustrating is that the Chamber of Commerce complaints are admittedly baseless, while we have concrete evidence of Big Labor's financial, elbow-deep involvement.

Couple that with the SEIU being in charge of polling machines, and a whiny comment by the president seems more than pathetic.
