Is New Yorker Cover a Ploy to Help Obama?

The New Yorker published an unflattering cover of Barack Obama and his (now) proud wife and it displayed every negative thing that has been said about him during the race for the White House. The New Yorker insists that this cover is a response to all the false things stated about Obama [by the Republicans]. Obama received most of his criticism during the Democratic Primary where DEMOCRATS spread rumors about him or where the words of his clueless wife were used against them. It was operatives from Hillary Clinton’s camp that spread the Muslim rumors and pictures of the Messiah in Muslim garb. It was Michelle’s radical words and lack of pride that came under fire. It was members of the Democratic Party who played the race card and it was Obama’s camp that attributed racism to every criticism. Still, the attacks from the left did not prevent Obama from saying that the right would be on the attack:

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?” Yahoo News

Since Obama made that claim about a month ago there have been no attacks like what he described, at least not from the right. McCain denounces any utterance that might look like an attack on Obambi and the 527s that Obama warned about have been from the left (mostly Soros) attacking John McCain. Where are all these attack ads? Where is this plan where we are going to make people afraid of him?

The fact is, it is not there. In steps the New Yorker with the cover that has drawn scorn from the contenders in both parties. Did this magazine make this cover to give Obama the attack he predicted? Did they do this so that he could say I told you so? Certainly the magazine is supportive of Obambi so why else would they do this?

I think they wanted it to appear as if the Prophet Obambi (PBUH) was right. Most people outside of a small group of elitists do not read the New Yorker and quite a few don’t know what kind of magazine it is so the general public will be left with the impression that this is a right wing attack on the Messiah. The magazine also gives the impression that the cover depicts what most people on the right think about Obama.

I believe that the cover was intended to help Obambi and he knows this. His indignation is probably feigned and he is relishing the idea that the cover will give his predictions of attacking Republicans some legs.

FWIW, I do not oppose Obama because he is black or for what his religion is. I believe him when he says he is Christian. Whether he is a good one is another question. I feel sorry for his wife because she has not felt pride in the many accomplishments of this country and I don’t care if he wears a Flag pin ( I just wish he had the testicular fortitude to stick with his original position and not pander). I oppose him because I know he is a socialist and that he will tax us to no end. I know he is inexperienced and that he is dangerous for this country. I also feel that he is not a true patriot and that he believes in a one world concept rather than having a national identity.

I also believe that the New Yorker and many other publications will do whatever they can to help him win. That cover had a purpose and hurting Obambi was not it.

    Well, it is in line with whole victimization, pity me thing that has worked for the left for so long…

    “FWIW, I do not oppose Obama because he is black or for what his religion is.”

    Why not? I mean millions of people ARE supporting him because of the color of his skin and Muslim groups are supporting him based upon his Muslim upbringing…

    Oh that’s right the double standard. Its Ok and intelligent to vote FOR someone solely based on their religion, gender, skin color, or sexual orientation but its not Ok to vote AGAINST someone for those same reasons.

    Personally I think voting for or against someone for those reasons is essentially idiotic and terribly short sighted.

    Obama couldn’t find his own arse with both hands, a map, and a flashlight when it comes to being a competent President. Without his teleprompter (even with it) he cannot make a speech where he doesn’t misspeak or get “misinterpreted”.

    His judge of character is pathetic if he’s being the least bit honest, I’m surprised the bus can even move anymore with all the people he’s tossed under it.

    His policies change from week to week, day to day, or even audience to audience. Does he even know what to think on his own? Or is he just pandering?

    He is not the right choice for President, especially with a Congress dominated by morons and lead by someone who is probably attempting to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for shoving her head the farthest up her own arse. I can’t say with conviction that McCain is either, but that’s all I’m left with.

    Obamanation is the professional victim. Poor Barry. Now he says although it does not bother him, it insults Muslim Americans. I say poppycock. Barry is s silver spooned Marxist -elitist.

    Scott – you took the words out of my mouth. Everyone is perfectly OK with people voting for OB because he’s black. They are counting on it. But if you don’t vote for him for that reason – you are a racist.

    I think he would make a great announcer guy on TV. He has a great voice – and says a whole lot of nothing with it. I believe having him as President could be a huge step down the wrong path for this country and I don’t care if he’s pink with purple polka dots.
