Time's Joe Klein: The Lamest Writer

by D. E. Carson (writer), , November 26, 2008

Bush derangement among liberals not backing down.

In today’s article for Time magazine, columnist Joe Klein shows just exactly for whom he voted on November 4 and it sure wasn’t John McCain. Tossing around such words as “stupefying ineptitude”, “final humiliation”, “overweening arrogance”, “paralytic incompetence” and the ultimate insult of all, “the lamest of all possible ducks”, Klein leave no doubt in anyone’s mind that he is a raging, left wing radical who bought into the Obama Zombie mantra of “change, change, change … Bush is bad … Obama is God … Give us the anointed one.”

Klein’s own incompetence as a journalist is overwhelming through his article. He patronizes Bush saying, “I’ve been feeling sorry for Bush lately, a feeling partly induced by recent fictional depictions of the President as an amiable lunkhead in Oliver Stone’s W and in Curtis Sittenfields’s terrific novel American Wife.” But it’s what prefaces that comment that reveals Klein’s raging hatred for Bush. Klein said, “It is in the nature of mainstream journalism to attempt to be kind to Presidents when they are coming and going but be fiercely skeptical in between.” Yeah, right.

For the last eight years, mainstream journalism has been there at every turn of the wheel undermining Bush for everything. Not a day has gone by that some member of “Joe the Writer’s” trade hasn’t twisted, spun or otherwise cast in a bad light any attempt by Bush to correct the wobble America suffered on September 11, 2001. Our friend Joe The Writer here is no exception.

Did Bush make some mistakes? Sure he did. But so has every president from this George W. to the first George W. It’s no secret that Bush is human. John F. Kennedy made a HUGE gaff in 1961 when he authorized the Bay of Pigs invasion into Cuba. Abraham Lincoln made a mistake in making George McClellan general of the Union army. Jimmy Carter made a mistake by being president at all. Lyndon Johnson made all kinds of mistakes in Vietnam. Nixon…well, what can be said about Nixon was hasn’t already been said about Bill Clinton?

But Bush derangement syndrome goes beyond Bush having made mistakes. BDS goes all the way back to December 2000 when liberals couldn’t accept the truth that even though Gore won the popular vote, the Electoral College handed the White House to Bush. It wasn’t the first time the popular vote didn’t elect a president. Just the first time that thumb-sucking crybabies whined about it.

But the worst of all insults Joe the Writer hurls at the President is to say, “Bush never…cared...” These shots taken at Bush represent the final nail in the coffin symbolizing the death of Joe the Writer’s credibility when it comes to being objective. There was absolutely no reason, justifiable or otherwise, for Klein’s comments. That this garbage article was allowed to be published at all speaks to the liberal leanings of Time’s editorial staff. The purpose of Klein’s article was not to be a retrospective of the Bush Administration. It was a typical liberal hack job attacking a president whose popularity is abysmal at best, but has done a much harder and better job of protecting America from islamo-fascists who have but one desire – to make the streets of America run red with the blood of liberals, conservatives, moderates and anyone else who won’t convert to islam.

It seems that Joe Klein doesn’t understand, or care about, the depth of hate that was directed at the United States in a plan conceived while Clinton was president and executed by a people who live to hate. Klein doesn’t understand, or care about, the fact that it was Democrats in 1992 that set in motion the machine that eventually led to the current economic crisis. Klein doesn’t understand, or care about, the fact that it is the unions that have the American automakers over the railing and are the reason Ford, GM and Chrysler are on the verge of bankruptcy. Klein doesn’t understand, or care, that Bush is a scapegoat for all of the lies, deceit and other economically destructive programs of the Democratic party that are the root cause for America’s financial woes. Klein doesn’t understand, or care, that the vitriolic hatred propagated by himself and others in his profession are more damaging to America than anything Bush managed to get done in eight years. Klein is less than a legitimate journalist now, and that is appropriate. He was never very much of one.

It's telling that Joe Klein would put his name to this Bush-Bash piece without a thought, but when he did his infamous hatchet piece on Clinton ("Primary Colors"), he did so anonymously while people endlessly debated who "Anonymous" was for months and months.  What a shit weasel...

I noticed this article got e-mailed.  First time I've had that happen.  Hope it was e-mailed to Joe Klein.

Thanks, D.E.

While Klein doesn't maintain a journalist's objectivity, I'd have to agree with his perspective.

M.J. Hamada -- another who drank the Obama Kool-Aid???  Seriously.  You can't think of one good thing to say about George W. Bush as president?  If you did, you'd be ahead of Klein that's for sure.

Sounds like you and Klein are two sides of the same coin.

At least I acknowledge that Bush made mistakes but I can still find something good to say about him.  Klein is a raging liberal who's drunk the Obama Kool-Aid and couldn't say anything good about Bush or bad about Obama if a gun were held to his head.

Hardly puts us in the same monetary system, let alone on the same coin...
