Newsweek Wonders: “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”

The Newsweek cover story this week asks, “Why Are Obama Critics So Dumb?”

The article is by far left Obama-supporter Andrew Sullivan who continues to push the lunacy that Trig Palin is not Sarah Palin’s son.

NewsBusters asks: Is there anything the mainstream media won’t do to get Obama reelected?

In fact, Sullivan’s fluff piece omitted these important truths.
Obama tripled the US deficit.

The Obama deficit this past year reached $1.2 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.

Federal non-defense spending soared under Obama.

Super Economy Blog and Greg Mankiw

Obama set records in the long-term unemployment rate.


Then there’s this by John E. at Ace of Spades:

Oh, and the economy was downgraded for the first time in a century.

But Sullivan thinks you’re dumb.

    Newsweek is now hiring mentally disabled writers? How very charitable of them.

    Why are Obama critics Racists, according to Holder, anyone who attacks is.

    But Why are Obama’s critics dumb? That is communist talk for we publish a magazine that sooner or later will go Belly Up!

    Newsweek magazine. Vaguely rings a bell. Oh yes, it used to be, gee, I just cannot recall.

    Is there anything the mainstream media won’t do to get Obama reelected?


    Because the left senses at long last that the control of America is within their total grasp, and a 2d term will cement that control in place, this will be a very, very vicious campaign.

    And no, the Tea Party is not dead, not by a long shot.

  • Pragmatic

    I will still never vote for Romney (or Obama).

  • amdg

    The problem is not with Obama critics, but with the so-called “conservative” voters.

    He has tripled the deficit, and this will probably be definitelly irreversible, but in the chart we can see that Reagan and Bush also engaged in large, unsustainable overspending.

    Obama has obliged the frog to jump out of the pot. The cons would have boiled the frog slowly. And the frog was so happy…

    And now we know what OWS is for: putting out messages about which of Obama’s cronies to enrich.

    Attention grabber to a dying subscription holders. For Socialism to work they have to repeat and repeat that the sheep are just not listening to the dictator’s words.

    And sooner or later they will pick up enough of the Stupid people. Obama may even pick up those who hate cops.

    For a Magazine to blatantly call Americans stupid. Tea party are racists, Congress is meaningless to Obama and those who attack this administration aren’t blameless either according to Holder. Holder believes that the republicans who attack him and Obama are doing so because of their being black.

    ATTACK? No for a DOJ to called real evidence on his Department for Killing Americans and Attack, if is evident that he and Newsweek are Liars, cheats and cons.

    I suspect Newsweek is being paid by this administration to help spread their propaganda. And this is one of the dumbest covers Newsweek has ever published. I look forward to the day Newsweek goes Belly UP.

  • Finncrisp

    The indefensible record Of this unknown Marxist who had no friends, no lovers, no classmates, and no public history of any kind has duped America, and now we have no talent journalists, term used graciously, trying to sell us that utter failure is just how you look at it.

  • Patty

    “[I]t remains simply a fact that Obama has delivered in a way that the unhinged right and purist left have yet to understand or absorb. Their short-term outbursts have missed Obama’s long game … [T]he president begins by extending a hand to his opponents; when they respond by raising a fist, he demonstrates that they are the source of the problem; then, finally, he moves to his preferred position of moderate liberalism and fights for it without being effectively tarred as an ideologue or a divider. This kind of strategy takes time. And it means there are long stretches when Obama seems incapable of defending himself, or willing to let others to define him, or simply weak. I remember those stretches during the campaign against Hillary Clinton. I also remember whose strategy won out in the end.”

    So what! Nobody reads Newsweek anymore and Andrew Sullivan is a joke, a bad joke!
    Ehe National Enquirer has much more credibility than either of these.

  • valerie

    There’s a good answer to this nonsense.


  • vityas

    It’s nothing but state propaganda anyway. Use the Soviet terms.
    Newsweek= Novosti Nedeli.

    America Wonders: “Why is Newsweak still in business?”

  • FurryGuy

    The British tabloid Daily Mirror called 59+ million Americans stupid for reelecting Bush in 2004, failing to see the “benefits” of Progressivism, and now another Uber-Liberal propaganda organ of the DNC is decrying anyone who criticizes Obama for ANY reason is very dumb.

    Well, at least Mr. Sullivan isn’t calling critics racist for opposing the Socialist takeover of the Republic.

  • saveus

    why are obummer’s supporters in and out of the mdeia so dumb?

    Who’s dumb enough to buy Newsweak? I didn’t even know they were still publishing. Weren’t they sold for one dollar? Overpriced!

    “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”

    Sounds to me like Sullivan is auditioning for “access”, if you know what I mean.
