Democrat Bob Kerrey Calls Obama a Delusional Liar; Renders Himself MSM Nonperson



I’m going to post this article from Newsbusters in its entirety so you can get its full effect…

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks.

Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect him to become an MSM nonperson. Such seems to already be the fate of former presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey. It is no surprise that his extended criticisms of Obama appeared in in a Daily Mail article in Britain, not in America where the shunning seems to have already begun. Here is what Kerrey has to say about Obama which you most likely won’t see in any major liberal news outlet in America:

The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn’t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America’s slowly choking entitlement programs.

And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked.

‘He had to know he was misleading the audience,’ Kerrey said quietly, recalling the newly minted president’s countless promises as Congress and the public debated his signature health insurance overhaul.

‘On the other hand, he may have said it so many times,’ he added, ‘that the spell-checker wasn’t in the room – the spell-checker, the fact-checker – somebody who says, “Excuse me, Mr. President, but I hope you know this…”‘

Obama’s infamous four-Pinocchio pledges, Kerrey explained, never stood a chance of being fulfilled because there were ‘a million people out there with policies that, for one reason or another, run short of the minimum standard. I mean, they bought something cheaper!’

Wow! Pretty strong stuff. But wait…there’s more!

The worst lie Democrats told about Obamacare, Kerrey reasoned, ‘is not “If you want to keep your health care plan…” – the worst one is, “Everybody deserves high-quality, affordable health care.”‘

‘Excuse me? Uh, I don’t know if you’ve heard about the bell curve?’ he snarked.

‘If I’ve got 1,000 doctors, 100 are great, and 100 are not so good.’

He outlined the shape of a bell curve with his hands, and then threw them skyward.

‘It’s absolutely impossible,’ he said.

‘And affordable? Forget about it.’

When the Affordable Care Act met its most vigorous Republican opposition in late 2009, the U.S. economy was still floundering and the business community’s eyes were focused on GDP growth, not a new set of health-benefit mandates.

‘I wouldn’t have done health care,’ Kerrey said.’I think the big mistake was … to say, “Whew! We’ve got the stimulus done, okay, the economy’s going to come bouncing back in 12 months – let’s do health care,”‘ he explained.

‘Only the economy didn’t come bouncing back.’

‘We’re teetering on the edge of going out of business through most of 2009,’ Kerrey recalled. ‘And I think you need to just keep driving, driving, driving on the economy, and make it as bipartisan as possible.’

So Kerrey compounded his “heresy” by claiming Democrats lied as well. And he still is not finished…

Asked how to break the congressional logjam, Kerrey thought for a moment and said, softly, ‘It takes a president. It takes a president.’

Is Barack Obama that president? Kerrey stayed silent but shook his head.

‘I’m shaking my head “no,”‘ he acknowledged, finally.

‘If he was up to it, he would have done it. He can’t run for re-election.’

Another of Obama’s failings, according to Kerrey, is an inflated sense of Americans’ appetite for programs to correct what the White House calls ‘income inequality,’ through new taxes and other income-shifting initiatives that transfer wealth from the rich to the poor.

The president’s re-election 17 months ago wasn’t a mandate to conduct class warfare, he said.

‘After the 2012 election, what the president needed was somebody to say, “Mr. President, I’m thrilled you won. You stand for all the things I support. But honestly, you won this election because you sucked less than Romney.”‘

Americans, Kerrey believes, lost patience equally with the GOP and the White House during the kabuki theater of fiscal cliff, congressional ‘super committee,’ budget sequester and tense partial government shutdown.

Obama stuck to his guns at the time, holding out for a ‘balanced’ budget-gap fix that included new taxes on upper-income Americans.

‘Everybody since 1913 has had a mandate to raise taxes on the rich,’ Kerrey scoffed at his party’s leader. ‘This isn’t something that you’ve earned, something that’s unique.’

Obama isn’t the first president to make that kind of miscalculation – Kerrey calls it ‘self-delusion’ – while in office.

He joked that geneticists will one day soon ‘find a base pair’ of genes that predisposes people to deception.

And he predicted, half-seriously, that ‘they’ll find another base pair which say that politicians have 25 per cent more capacity for – you call it lying, I call it self-delusion.’

Citizen Kerrey! This is to inform you that you have become an MSM nonperson. Your name has been tossed down the memory hole. Wolf Blitzer has already forgotten that you even existed. Oh, and forget about being invited to exclusive Manhattan and Georgetown parties in the future. The shunning has already begun!

        He lost his leg in the process of earning the Medal of Honor while fighting to defend American values and the livelihoods of an entire allied nation. Whether or not you or I trust him is irrelevant; if there is a just God in the universe, I think Mr. Kerrey has already earned His blessings.

          A liberal criticizing Obama is doing so for some political reason I haven’t determined yet. Being a war hero doesn’t insulate one from being a political hack. Especially one involved in politics as long as Kerry.

            You might very well be right but Kerry is also right in what he says.

    Quite simply, Obama is a full bore liberal. What is a liberal? Psychology precedes and trumps ideology. People with a low sense of self (which is set in childhood and takes great effort to change) fear freedom as it means free to fail as well as to succeed. They see themselves and many others (similarly wounded souls) as victims–and therefore still others as causative agents for creating victims. The oppressors (at different times and places they may be Jews, Christians, whites, the rich, 1%ers, etc.) are to be despised. Theirs is a personal and worldview of being unhappy with self for being inadequate (low self-love, low self-esteem), the concept of freedom as a tenet of this country to be feared and reduced, and a group of people (those happy in their own skins and those that can be cast as oppressors) to be punished. Such a person will tend to want to address this feeling and view by surrendering freedom to obtain a greater equality of state (feeling “if all are equal, I am not less”) while also treating the “oppressors” differently (unequal treatment–punishment–is non-rationally desired despite the desire for equality of state). There is also the bonus that now they have a caring, nurturing parental figure (the Fatherland, the Motherland, Big Brother, the State, the Federal Government) that will provide for them in ways their real parental figures did not when they were young children. That is the core psychology and motivation for a significant segment of the population (historically, nationally and worldwide). With that psychology, an ideology can be chosen. At different times and places different ideologies will be chosen for cultural/societal/historical reasons (liberalism, socialism, communism, fascism, statism, progressivism, etc.), but at core they are all the same with a common underlying, psychological motivation. So “what is a liberal?” A psychologically needy, non-rational person, with a low sense of self, wanting to control others in compensating for a lack of control of self, wanting to surrender freedom for an ever larger more intrusive federal government, wanting government to treat people unequally–punishing some–in an attempt to achieve a greater equality of state, and who chooses the label “liberal” because–in their personal time, place and community–that label provides for them the best sense of inclusion (or least sense of exclusion). The definition of a socialist, communist, fascist, progressive, etc. is basically the same as it grows from the same psychology.

    This is a good interview ONLY because it speaks the truth and truth is pretty scarce coming out of Washington.

    President Obama is a liar. Not my view alone. Kerry’s view.

      He’s been out of office for 13 years. He was the president of a college when Obamacare was passed. And he is a Medal of Honor and Purple Heart recipient. Give credit where credit is due.

    The one thing that no liberal can handle is the truth and everything that this man has said is spot on. Obumma is the worst president every, the most worthless human on the face of the earth and would not know how to tell the truth if it bit him on the butt, Impeach the illegal alien muslim now. Save our country while we can.

    Conservative vs. Liberal views

    Conservative Political Views: Prefer smaller government, less regulation, most services provided by the private sector in a FREE market, and a literal interpretation of the Constitution.

    Liberal Political views: Prefer more regulation and services like FREE universal health care provided by the government to all citizens.

    Conservative Economic Views: Government should taxLESS and spend LESS. Cutting spending to BALANCE THE BUDGET should be the priority. Higher income earners should have an incentive to invest (credits).CHARITY PROVIDES the responsibility to the poor and provides help to the less fortunate.

    Liberal Economic Views: Government (TAX PAYERS) should PROVIDE more services to the less fortunate (like health care) and increase taxes if necessary. High-income earners should pay a larger percentage of their income as taxes.

    Conservative Social Views: Opposed to gay marriage, oppose abortion and embryonic stem cell research. Support the right to bear arms with no restrictions, death penalty, and SELF-responsibility as a moral individual.

    Liberal Social Views: Gay couples to get equal rights like everyone else (e.g. marriage); abortion (murder) should be legal. Support embryonic stem cell research. Support restrictions and regulation around the right to bear arms.

    Conservative Personal Responsibility views: Individuals should exercise personal responsibility and it is the government’s role to hold them accountable even with severe penalties. Laws enacted to reflect the best interest of the society as a whole.

    Liberal Personal Responsibility Views: The people should look to the government to provide a structure (EVERYTHING). Laws enacted to protect every individual for an equal society sometimes at the EXPENSE of ECONOMIC FREEDOM if necessary.

    Liberalism destroys ethical and moral views. Liberalism destroys core Christian beliefs, which God has blessed America for 238 years.
