Faux Journalist Steve Kroft Interviews Obama, Forgets to Ask About Calls to Impeach Holder, Kagan Recusal, Corzine, Solyndra, etc.

President Obama received another in-kind donation from CBS News tonight in the form of a fawning 60 Minutes interview by "journalist" Steve Kroft. If that is his real name.

Kroft apparently had a brief case of amnesia and forgot about a few mildly important issues:

• The increasing calls for Eric Holder's resignation and/or impeachment for Operation Fast and Furious, etc.

• The newly revealed Obamacare emails that appear to show Elena Kagan lied under oath

• The catastrophic failure of MF Global, headed by none other than one of Obama's leading fundraisers, John Corzine

• The billions in "green energy" funds that went to Obama's fundraisers and political cronies, Solyndra being only the most visible example

• The "historic" $4.2+ trillion budget deficits thanks to Obama's disastrous stimulus debacle and the Democrats' failure to pass a budget for 1,000+ days

Obama has blamed the weather, earthquakes, ATMs, and the Internet -- among other things -- for the bad economy. In the Kroft interview, he said, "I'm being judged against the ideal. And, you know, Joe Biden has a good expression. He says, 'Don't judge me against the Almighty, judge me against the alternative.' "

There he goes again, comparing himself with God.

No, Mr. President. Our ideal is Ronald Reagan who, having inherited a far worse recession than you, had the economy rockin' and rollin' at the exact same point in his presidency.

Hat tip: BP.

Kroft sucked as a chronicler of Rock 'N Roll acts, too.

“Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”

Sure, but who among the Republican candidates is even close to the leader that Reagan was?

That's what Obama means when he talks about being compared to the alternative.

It's still going to be a tough election to win, especially if the Christmas retail sales continue to improve and the economy begins to recover in 2012.

Oh, well played, Carlito. You just cancelled Christmas in my neighborhood. Let me remind you, since it doesn't appear you were around to actually witness it, that Reagan was roundly mocked during the election and the first years of his term. Nobody believed that old man, washed up B-actor, etc, would ever be a "leader." Most of you still don't. Naps, jellybeans, memory lapse, astrology, ad infinitum. The day is coming soon when you'll say the current crop of GOP candidates aren't great like GW Bush.

I guarantee the economy's about to improve drastically -- every element of it that consists of federally-developed statistics. It's inevitable.

Carlito, your darling Obama isn't qualified to be a 7-11 night manager, let alone President . Get off your knees.
