Obama's reaction to Arizona bloodbath hypocritical, say conservatives

"When the rhetoric about hatred, about mistrust of government, about paranoia of how government operates, and to try to inflame the public on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, has impact on people especially who are unbalanced personalities," said Pima County, Arizona's Democrat sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

In the aftermath of the Arizona shooting spree perpetrated by Jared Loughner, there are many in Washington, DC calling for an end to harsh talk and vitriol, including the Obama White House. Besides critically wounding a congresswoman and killing a federal judge, other less known victims died at the hands of this obvious madman.

However, many in the nation's news media have used this incident to paint a target on the back on the Democrats' Public Enemy #1, Sarah Palin. For example, Reuters published this on Monday: "Palin, the failed 2008 Republican candidate for vice president who has hinted at a possible run for president in 2012, has used some highly charged language in fund-raising efforts and other forums and has sometimes been depicted toting a rifle."

Within minutes of the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, some liberal-left commentators, absent any credible evidence, were already blaming conservatives for their coarse rhetoric.

However, not one of these newsroom purveyors of "truth" mentioned the rhetoric contained in a typical pep talk by President Barack Obama.

"Perhaps the media need to start investigating the rhetoric emanating from the Obama White House," said political strategist Mike Baker, who provided this list:

Obama on ACORN supporters: "I don't want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I'm angry!"

Obama to supporters: "Hit Back...... Twice As Hard"

Obama: "They Bring a Knife...We Bring a Gun."

Obama to His Followers: "Get in Their Faces!"

Obama on the private sector: "We talk to these folks... so I know whose ass to kick."

Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean "hand to hand combat"

Obama to liberal supporters: "It's time to fight for it."

Obama to Latino supporters: "Punish your enemies."

Obama to Democrats: "I'm itching for a fight."


"Rather than trying to control political discourse, perhaps our leaders in Washington should attempt to curb rampant hypocrisy," said Baker.
