Class warfare comes to the Sporting Blog

You can’t escape class warfare in today’s environment. You can’t escape it on the nightly news. You can’t escape it when a politician speaks. You can’t even escape it when reading the Sporting Blog.

Tuesday the Sporting Blog posted a love letter to liberal president and rock star Barack Obama. The slobbering over Obama was tough to stomach; it focused on how wonderful it is that Obama isn’t an avid golfer. Yes, sucking at golf somehow makes dear leader even more dear at the Sporting Blog.

“At this juncture in history, the symbolism could not be more appropriate, and as much as I love golf, I have to say that right now Obama’s taste in sports, as with just about everything else to do with his public image, seems to me to be pitch-perfect.”

Pitch-perfect? Only if you like class warfare. And the Sporting Blog seems to love it. Like this example.

“And yet here we are at a historical moment at which we are more irate with that particular ‘club’ than we have been in some time. The people who belong to that club have brought us to the brink of ruin, and we all seem maybe two or three more bailout payments from forming CEO lynch mobs.”

Right. It was the all the CEO’s fault the nation is on the brink and not idiot consumers (poor people and middle class people) who buy houses they can’t afford, buy crap at the department store they can’t pay for and won’t save a dollar.

When the nation enters crisis the blame can be shared across a broad spectrum of society. Plenty of CEO’s were reckless in pursuit of meeting the credit needs of equally reckless consumers. The government was reckless in over regulation in some areas and under regulation in others.

But that type of outlook won’t serve the class warfare crowd. And if you doubted the liberal love at the Sporting Blog, another liberal icon gets love too.

“I can remember, the only President in my lifetime who wasn’t a prominent golfer was Jimmy Carter, and that certainly wasn’t a question of class alienation. Hell, Carter was a native Georgian and his great-grandfather was a general in the Confederacy. It wasn’t like he didn’t grow up around rich white men chasing the little white ball. No, if Carter didn’t golf, it wasn’t because he was beneath the game. Carter is quite a high-minded individual. The game, I’m sure, was beneath him.”

I don’t play golf, and it is not because I’m high-minded. The reason I won’t play is my blood pressure. Golf pisses me off. Being of Scottish heritage, I can say golf was invented in Scotland for one reason—an excuse to drink. And I don’t need an excuse.

But liberal always equals high-minded in the minds of some, so Mr. Carter gets praise for his failure to play the game. Every other president, including the market friendly Bill Clinton, gets trashed because of how they spend their leisure time.

Class warfare at its most pathetic.

    when history is written, this period in american history is going to be exposed as the biggest fraud in world history.

    rush is right, i heard him say this years ago. if you want to know what democrats are after, listen to what they tell you they don’t want.

    this entire crash has been facilitated by the democrats thru fannie mae and freddie mac. they used these gses to throw red meat to they wall street wolves.

    the wolves did what wolves do and millions of americans have gotten chewed up in the process.

    but for the democrats, the ends justifies the means.

    total control.

    go back to 2004. a leaked memo from jay rockefeller’s office exposed the democrats plan to regain power.

    do anything to embarrass and take down the incumbent administration.

    and that they did to perfection.

    they ginned up domestic opposition to the iraq war using the game plan of vietnam.

    (the united states didn’t lose a single battle in the vietnam war. we consistently killed more vietcong than they of us. the tet “offensive” is a classic example. the n. vietnamese lost over 25,000 troops in that campaign. we lost 4000. but you would never have known that listening to walter cronkite at the time. but liberals stateside decided it was time to get out. damn winning or losing. damn the lives they jeopardized with their traitorous actions at home)

    then they ramped up the poisoning of our economy.

    free money. no down payments. no job history. hell, no identification!

    herb and marion sandler built a bank using these felonious practices. then they sold their poison to wachovia in ’06.

    those with their eyes open now know the outcome.

    they make out like bandits then use their ill gotten gains to propel the same democrats into power that facilitated this mess we’re in now.

    obama doesn’t want to run the banks, aig, the car companies.

    well, there’s a smoke detector in my back pocket.

    upset about the bailouts??

    well right now there’s bank that want to pay back the money FORCED on them by obama.

    (they see the writing on the wall)

    obama won’t accept it back.


    because he doesn’t want the competition.

    think this private/public partnership to soak up the “toxic” debt is the answer??

    think again.

    after the aig “bonus” fiasco, (another planned creation of the democrats, they knew about the bonuses, they signed off on them, then when it happened, they scream and caterwaul and lead parades of idiots to folks homes) what wall street type in their right mind is going to enter in to an agreement with obama???

    if they do luck up and make a little money, out come the pitchforks.


    then he can throw his hands up and say ‘we tried’.

    on to nationalization.

    on to socialism.

    on to government control.

    you heard it here first.
