    Root: “One has to wonder if congratulations are in order for President Obama. The U.S. economy is in ruins…

    The economy was in ruins before Obama was elected. The home mortgage crisis and Wall Street bailouts were both well underway during Bush’s final year.

    Root: “, the country in crisis, the world in chaos.”

    How in the country in crisis? Because of the economy (which Bush had a hand in), or because of our foreign wars (which Root supported)?

    And what’s Obama supposed to do about a “world in crisis”? Intervene in Egypt or Libya? Stop earthquakes from rocking Japan?

    More mindless “word vomits” from Root, published in the Moonie Washington Times.

    Bruce Cohen is right that Root spews his “word vomits “everywhere.” Too bad libertarians will be blamed for the mess.

    The meaning of the bonehead “lyrics” that used to be posted here was a bit obscure for some readers, so they are being summarized as follows:

    The bonehead who wrote them has a “thing” for old men in uniform.

    Everyone has to have a fetish, I guess.

    I’m afraid that I’m totally missing the point of the post above.

    Would somebody please be kind enough to point it out to me?

    Thanks.

    Wayne writes; “Oil has skyrocketed to more than $100 per barrel, yet Mr. Obama refuses to allow any new drilling, exploration or construction of new refineries on U.S. soil. .”

    Ya might wanna check that big guy, cause that looks mighty stupid up North Dakota way unless they are no longer part of the good Ol’ U.S. of A.

    Btw check out the Bakken Play. Some claim it holds more oil than in Saudi.

    Not to mention the natural gas drilling and exploration going on. Plus there is a movement to get new refineries up and running.

    AP@3,

    The post@2 you’re referring to was probably an anti-Semitic rant by a Nazi scumbag. Paulie usually goes in and, um, creatively edits those.

    Haven’t read the column, but hey, it’s an op-ed in a big city newspaper. Duh! Winning!

  6. Root's Teeth Are Awesome

    A fact-checker for Root? I don’t think he — or any human being — even writes his articles.

    I suspect Root has an “anti-Obama speech generator,” much like this postmodern generator: http://www.elsewhere.org/pomo/

    Root presses his computer’s refresh button, and the same anti-Obama sentences are randomly jumbled together into a “new” anti-Obama Root speech.

  7. FKC

    “Haven’t read the column, but hey, it’s an op-ed in a big city newspaper. Duh! Winning!”

    Gotta agree there.

  8. paulie

    hahahahahaa, i got a phone p

    Good deal. Give me a call this weekend, or tomorrow during the day if you have minutes.

  9. Aaron Starr

    Congratulations to Wayne Root for getting his column published in the Washington Times.

  10. wolfefan

    Hi Bruce – I don’t think “literally” is the word you were looking for in the intro. That word makes no sense given the rest of your comments. You might want to change that to “virtually.”

  11. AroundtheblockAFT

    Is there nothing wrong with real Obama that Wayne has to attack right-wing cartoon Obama?
    I’d be embarrassed to sit in an audience listening to these half-truths and lies and have anyone know he’s a member of the same political party as I. This kind of overblown rhetoric is what we hate about Democrats and Republicans.
    We needn’t tolerate it in the LP and W.A.R. can, one hopes, realize the error of his ways and
    knock it off .

  12. Bruce Cohen

    Wolfefan @ 16 – I agree.

    But I didn’t write that release.
    I just posted it here, it’s as it was originally written.

    The word “literally” should not be taken ‘literally’. LOL Not there, anyway!

  13. Nicholas Sarwark

    Wayne’s political commentaries are literally everywhere in the mainstream media…plastered throughout the Internet…sent via email chains across the country. Now even major newspapers are taking notice.

    Which ones? All I saw mentioned in the post was the Washington Times.

  14. Thomas L. Knapp

    Nicholas,

    Even though the Washington Times has the circulation of a fairly small city daily (about 40k last time I checked), it’s reasonable to describe it as a “major newspaper” because it’s the minority opinion-maker newspaper in the political capital of the US.

    I’d even go so far as to call it “kinda, sorta, a little bit mainstream.” I’m pretty sure that it’s no longer owned by Sun Myung Moon, anyway.

    Getting published in the Times is definitely braggable. I know I thought it was pretty damn cool when I managed it some years ago, anyway.

    As far as Wayne’s stuff being “everywhere in the mainstream media,” literally or otherwise … not even anything remotely like it. He’s got good coverage in the right-wing-fringe niche, which is nothing to shake a stick at, and the rest is the usual hype. NTTAWWT.

    TLK,

    I may be wrong, but I read that comment as newspaper (singular) =/= newspapers (plural).

    Thanks for clearing up the spam BTW. I’ve been busy today dealing with a personal situation that, while it involves politics, is not something I’m going to discuss on here, but suffice it to say that it’s sapping my enthusiasm for participating on IPR or similar sites.

    I’m going to force myself to post some articles and comments today, but that might be it for a while. Overall, I’m experiencing that same feeling about everything you once described to me as you having about electoral politics, which you compared to Diggler at the end of Boogie Nights.

    Thomas: “Even though the Washington Times has the circulation of a fairly small city daily (about 40k last time I checked), it’s reasonable to describe it as a “major newspaper” because it’s the minority opinion-maker newspaper in the political capital of the US.”

    The Washington Times has more than twice that circulation (~94,000) at this time. Still not in the top 50 newspapers, but still fairly big. And as far as right-leaning dailies, it’s very big.

  17. Thomas L. Knapp

    Paulie @ 28,

    You are a bright, shining star. You are a bright, shining star. You are a bright, shining star.

    JT@29,

    Glad to hear the Times is climbing back up.

    As the Republican newspaper in the nation’s capital, its circulation really isn’t that important: It’s the right-wing/opposition opinionmaker medium in an important metro.

    Getting a piece published in one of those IS a big deal. I don’t have to agree with all, or even any, of whatever Wayne says in the piece (still haven’t read it) to understand that he got in a coup.

  18. JT

    Knapp: “As the Republican newspaper in the nation’s capital, its circulation really isn’t that important: It’s the right-wing/opposition opinionmaker medium in an important metro.”

    Yes, it is that. I do think circulation is pretty important though. All things equal, it wouldn’t be as big an achievement with a much lower readership.

    Knapp: “Getting a piece published in one of those IS a big deal. I don’t have to agree with all, or even any, of whatever Wayne says in the piece (still haven’t read it) to understand that he got in a coup.”

    I agree. I wouldn’t go crazy over an op-ed in one issue, but it’s definitely a noteworthy accomplishment.

    Regardless, I think Nick may have just been asking which other major newspapers Root has appeared in besides the Washington Times. I can’t speak for him though.

  19. Thomas L. Knapp

    JT@31,

    “I think Nick may have just been asking which other major newspapers Root has appeared in besides the Washington Times.”

    That might be. If so, the answer is “not a lot — but he specifically said awhile back that newspapers aren’t what he’s going for, he thinks TV and talk radio are bigger bang for the buck.”

    So now we’re talking “he got in the Washington Times even though that’s not where he’s aiming his efforts,” which makes it even more of a coup.

  20. wolfefan

    @Bruce – thanks for the clarification. In that case, I’ll just say again that Wayne needs an editor. If someone is editing for him, they should be fired.

    @TLK – Sun Myung Moon owns the paper. He bought it from his son Preston in July 2010 for $1 as opposed to seeing it shut down. There were complaints that it was drifting too far from Unification Church orthodoxy, and so Moon bought it to try to return it to more direct church control.

  21. Wayne Root

    @26

    Hi Nick.

    Which ones?

    My commentaries appear on the biggest conservative political web sites on the Internet…Newsmax (over 6 million readers), Breitbart, DailyCaller, all on a regular basis…and often on DrudgeReport, WorldNetDaily, and RealClearPolitics.

    I’m on Fox News and Fox Business on a regular basis…occasionally on CNBC.

    And I am a guest on hundreds of radio shows across the USA…including a twice monthly guest on many nationally syndicated shows like Bill Cunningham (on 400+ Premiere Radio Stations). So many I’ve lost track…but here’s a few…

    Mancow in the Morning, The Big Biz Show, Captain’s America, Rita Cosby on WOR Radio in NY, and now KOGO in San Diego all feature me weekly or often.

    I’m guest host for G Gordon Liddy and Jerry Doyle nationally…I was guest host on CBS Radio in Las Vegas about 15 times this past year…I’ll be guest host tomorrow (Friday) on The Peter Schiff Show on 4 stations in Connecticut.

    And I’m now talking with muliple stations about my own Wayne Root Show.

  22. Michael Seebeck

    “And I’m now talking with muliple stations about my own Wayne Root Show.”

    Talk to AM 1440 in Riverside. I’m sure they can fit your bad comedy alongside real libertarian funnymen like Doug Stanhope and real regular funnymen like Bill (not Rita) Cosby, Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Jerry Seinfeld, Monty Python, John Caliendo, and Ray Romano, among others.

  23. paulie

    First paragraph:

    One has to wonder if congratulations are in order for President Obama. The U.S. economy is in ruins, the country in crisis, the world in chaos. Was this all a purposeful plan, or is Mr. Obama simply an inexperienced, incompetent, bumbling Inspector Clouseau in the White House?

    Maybe some of y’all will read it now 🙂

  24. Tom Blanton

    It seems like all the right-wing comedians have run out of fresh material on Obama. The secret Muslim, born in Kenya, Marxist conspiracy to destroy America bits have gotten stale.

    How about Obama is a secret polygamist Mormon and the little girls aren’t his daughters – they’re his midget wives!

  25. paulie

    In this debilitated condition I can really appreciate this article, although I have nothing intelligent to say about it and I don’t know if it will be any better tomorrow. Second and third paragraphs, I think that’s still fair use….

    From the day of Mr. Obama’s election, many concerned patriots have warned about his goals. Mr. Obama is a follower of radical Marxist strategy, like Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven’s strategy of overwhelming the system to create economic crisis and chaos.

    Based on those strategies, one would be foolish not at least to wonder whether Mr. Obama’s goal from the start was to wreck capitalism; redistribute wealth by punishing, penalizing and demonizing the wealthy; force Americans to their knees to beg for help from big government; and then in response to those pleas, put government in control over every aspect of our lives.

    After this you either have to read it or not

    Random observations:

    Washington Times puts WT in front of the author’s name when you open up a new tab with the article, so it says WT ROOT… Since my last name starts with F, if I ever get published there, it will start with WT F….

  26. Jill Pyeatt

    When you feature that third paragraph, it sounds like Mr. Root thinks there might be some kind of conspiracy. Interesting, since people give me such a hard time about believing in a few conspiracies.

    I’m not saying I disagree with Wayne, in this case, though. I actually don’t disagree with him all the time.

  27. Jill Pyeatt

    Oh, well that explains everything! Those are leprechauns up there! They’re flying around Earth looking for more beer.

  28. wolfefan

    Hi Wayne –

    If you’re still reading, I’m not sure why you call Alinsky a Marxist, or his tactics Marxist tactics. All community organizers, left and right, have learned from Alinsky. He greatly influenced Lee Atwater, for instance. And Alinsky himself was more anarchist than Marxist. Natonal Review did something on this not too long ago – you might check it out if you have time.

    And keep in mind that the whole point of the Clouseau movies is that despite his bumbling, Clouseau gets it right in the end. You might drop that reference.

  29. PRAYER FOR JAPAN

    I am surprised, there isn’t a special posting for a change for the disaster regarding what happened in Japan. We could have that happen here. We have 3 nuclear plants out here on the West Coast. You know. All this small stuff you guys talk about. We are going to have even more bigger problems to worry about. Thats staying alive.

    Obama hasn’t come forward to say prayers for these people. Of course that is no surprised. Bush as much as I can’t stand him either. At least, even if he was faking it. He would get on the news and say condolences to people of Katrina and other place.

    Obama is a piece of work.

  30. paulie

    All community organizers, left and right, have learned from Alinsky.

    There is in fact a lot to learn from Alinsky. If you haven’t read him yourself, you should.

  31. paulie

    I am surprised, there isn’t a special posting for a change for the disaster regarding what happened in Japan.

    I don’t know what you mean by special posting.

    As I told you before, if an asteroid that was to end all life on Earth was headed this way, the only thing IPR would cover would be what various alternative political parties and independents have to say about it.

    Same principle applies here.

    All this small stuff you guys talk about. We are going to have even more bigger problems to worry about. Thats staying alive.

    This is true. Our mission may be largely irrelevant at this stage. Maybe, maybe not. It is what it is, for better or for worse, so if you think it’s irrelevant, you may want to spend your time somewhere else.

  32. Michael H. Wilson

    re # 54 The West Coast may not be the problem we think it is. The big problem may be along the fault in the middle of the country. The New Madrid quake that happen about 200 years ago in the Memphis/St. Louis area has a pretty good potential for destroying a significant part of the country should something like that happen again.

    So relax and get a six pack. Little radiation is not to do much except fry us.

  33. Jill Pyeatt

    I’m in the homeowners insurance business on the west coast, and I agree the New Madrid fault is more worrisome. The buildings and people are much less prepared than we are.

  34. wolfefan

    Paulie @56 – you are so right. Rules for Radicals is a must read even now. Issues change, sides change, but the principles in that book are still very relevant.

  35. Robert Capozzi

    p57, could be a good time for a 3rd party type to remind folks that the nuclear power industry is a regulatory creation of the State.

  36. Robert Capozzi

    tk, excellent. It may not have been covered on IPR since there is no box for “no party.”

  37. paulie

    Nader basically did just that in his latest column that IPR published.

    If Darryl Perry or the LP (state, local, national, whatever) wants to say the same thing, all the better.
