Politics. It never ceases to amaze me the lies our government displays to keep their ‘image’ in good standing with the American public.
…there’s a pretty interesting story coming out of Tuesday night’s SOTU that is a testimony to the theatrics of the evening.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The woman whose story of economic recovery was showcased by President Barack Obama in his State of the Union address is a former Democratic campaign staffer and has been used by Obama for political events in the past.”
“Rebekah Erler has been presented by the White House as a woman who was discovered by the president after she wrote to him last March about her economic hardships. She was showcased in the speech as proof that middle class Americans are coming forward to say that Obama’s policies are working. Unmentioned in the White House bio of Erler is that she is a former Democratic campaign operative, working as a field organizer for Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.).”
This also wasn’t the first time the White House used the former Democratic campaign staffer as a political prop. Obama spent a “day in the life” of Erler in June so that he could have “an opportunity to communicate directly with the people he’s working for every day.” Reuters revealed Erler’s Democratic affiliations following that June event, and the Minnesota Republican Party attacked Obama for being “so out of touch with reality that he thinks a former Democrat campaign staffer speaks for every Minnesotan.”
It all reminds me of the movie, “The Matrix” — are we living in the real world or one manufactured to deceive us — and our existence?
Now, you just have to ask, why did the Obama administration need to create yet another unnecessary suspect narrative? Did they truly think no one checks folks out and their background? Or did they just think we were dumb enough to not notice — or not care?
