Obama Didn’t Hear Hoffa, Just Like He Never Heard Reverend Wright

So Obama didn’t hear what Hoffa said. He didn’t hear it. So if he didn’t hear it, it didn’t happen? Sort of like the old question, “If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody’s there, does it make a sound?” Well, obviously it does. When Hoffa speaks but Obama doesn’t hear it, did Hoffa say anything? Yes, he did. “‘Those weren’t comments by the president … he didn’t hear it, I don’t have any comment beyond that,’ Carney said in response to questions from ABC’s Jake Tapper. ‘Mr. Hoffa speaks for himself, he speaks for the labor movement,’ Carney added during the afternoon press conference.”

Then Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director, said that Obama was not gonna be “the speech police for the Democrat Party.” He’s only too happy to be the speech police for everybody else, but he’s not gonna be the speech police for the Republican Party. I mean, here’s Obama — what was it, just nine months ago? — he goes out and delivers that great “civility” speech at the event in Tucson after the shooting of Gabby Giffords. We’ve gotta make everybody proud of us by the way we talk to each other and so forth? Meanwhile, since then, we’ve been called “terrorists,” “sons-of-bitches,” and we’ve accused of holding the nation “hostage.” The list of names that we have been called — “racists” — and the things that have been said to characterize us is longer than I can recall.
