Las Vegas Review-Journal: Obama a “narcissistic amateur” and “unworthy”

Wow. The Review-Journal is Nevada’s biggest paper and, while they endorsed McCain in 2008, I never expected they would go after Obama in such harsh terms. After ripping him (justifiably) for his handling of the Benghazi fiasco, this is how they conclude:

This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent at best on the economy – though a more careful analysis shows what can only be a perverse and willful attempt to destroy our prosperity. Back in January 2008, Barack Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that under his cap-and-trade plan, “If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.” He added, “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” It was also in 2008 that Mr. Obama’s future Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, famously said it would be necessary to “figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe” – $9 a gallon.

Yet the president now claims he’s in favor of oil development and pipelines, taking credit for increased oil production on private lands where he’s powerless to block it, after he halted the Keystone XL Pipeline and oversaw a 50 percent reduction in oil leases on public lands.

These behaviors go far beyond “spin.” They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation’s economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie “Dr. Strangelove,” would be disastrous.

Candidate Obama said if he couldn’t fix the economy in four years, his would be a one-term presidency.

Mitt Romney is moral, capable and responsible man. Just this once, it’s time to hold Barack Obama to his word. Maybe we can all do something about that, come Tuesday.

That’s going to leave a mark. 

Go, read the whole article; it’s a thing of beauty. And I hope the Review-Journal’s readers take its advice.

    If there is no other reason for someone who is “undecided” about who to vote for, this should be the one they take into the voting booth with them.

  2. The biggest personal difference between Romney and Obhammud is Romney saw this political contest as a race to the WH while Obhammud saw it as a race to the gutter. He has spent his entire presidency blaming others, primarily Bush. His and Bill Clinton’s claim the economy was left is such a shambles no president could have salvaged it is stunning after he rated himself as one of the best four, right up there with Lincoln, FDR, and LBJ.

    The article should be required reading for all voters BEFORE voting.

    Especially if they can read English! (Just a comment about all the cemetery and criminal alien vote, folks. Hopefully it won’t be close enough for them to make the difference.)

    Looks like the LVRJ won’t be getting an invitation to the White House Christmas Winter Holiday Party and turkey halal goat giveaway this year.

    …it must be closer (here in Vega$) than I realized. Barry and his entourage were here AGAIN yesterday preaching to the faithful. For the first time ever, the three local network affiliates were carrying his show live.

    I cannot recall the networks (here) ever doing that before – for any candidate doing a campaign whistle stop stump speech.

    Don’t worry, Tango, Dingy will just make a couple of calls and make sure the criminal alien and cemetery votes are lined up proper come Tuesday AM! He’s got to do something with all that stimulus money, ya know, and buying votes is what the jackasses do best.

    Well, at least its good to know there is still one free and independent newspaper left in the U.S. that hasn’t been subjugated by the Democratic Party for political propaganda purposes.

    Just glad the LVR-J has finally caught up to what some of us have been saying for the past four years or more…

    Welcome to the real world, LVR-J. I understand Dingy doesn’t like you a bit, and would prefer everyone in Vegas buy your competitor’s fishwrap. Funny how that works when your unofficial mouthpiece has been so bought and paid for…
