The Conservative-Truth Disconnect


Is it me or are we hearing the word “disconnect” more and more from wingnut pundits and politicians in reference to President Obama?  At times the word is replaced with “detached” as in “the President is detached from reality” or “the President said <whatever…> which shows a disconnect with <whatever…>.”  Anyone bothering to read anything Sarah Palin has said of late will have noticed that disconnect is Barbie’s latest favorite word.

“There is an obvious disconnect between President Obama and the White House, what they are doing to our economy and what they are doing in terms of not allowing Americans to feel as safe as we had felt. And [now] people [are] finally saying, “You know, this is not…blah, blah, blah.” -Palin Jan. 13

“In his address last night, the president once again revealed that there’s a fundamental disconnect between what the American people expect from their government, and what he wants to deliver.”  -Palin Jan. 28

There is no point in discussing the pure idiocy of having the most disconnected politician of the last decade insinuating that anyone, let alone the President, is disconnected from reality.  Her assertion on this point alone displays her disconnect with anything resembling truth.

And last night we had Sean Hannity saying this.

“”[Obama is] out of touch with what’s going on, on the streets of this country.”

“George Bush…did not play golf while this country was at war. … [H]e didn’t want the families of loved ones serving — or that may have lost a loved one — seeing him on a golf course. He seemed to be far more in touch.”

Right Sean…out of touch.

  1. George W didn’t show up for half his presidency and even when he was there Cheney was the manipulator of policy. W and the Repubs are the poster children for disconnect. Sure they can coin a phrase and yell it out, but they do not care for the people, only their own pockets and power
