Ellis Washington Gets It Wrong -- Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Ellis Washington writes in his Nov. 7 WorldNetdaily column:

What was Obama doing the night the election returns were coming in? According to his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, Obama was enjoying a sycophantic HBO documentary about himself and his presidential campaign rather than watching the election returns.

If the Roman despot Nero fiddled while Rome burned, then surely it can be said that Obama watched TV while the Democrat Party crashed and burned in the special elections Nov. 3.

In fact, Gibbs never said that. Fox News reported the claim but later retracted it, with Major Garrett claiming he had "misheard" Gibbs and that Gibbs was pointing to the HBO documentary as evidence that Obama does not routinely watch election returns.

Washington does tend to get stuff wrong on a regular basis.

The rest of Washington's column is the same kind of Obama derangement we've come to know and love from him, baselessly asserting that the reason Obama isn't going to Berlin to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall is because he really wants to rebuild it:

Twenty years later, President Obama, as the anti-Reagan, is trying to rebuild the Berlin Wall brick by brick with fascist policies designed to undermine freedom of all Americas and the liberties of those people around the world yearning for a republic founded on the rule of law. Obama wants to place those same shackles Stalin put on the Soviet-bloc countries on America with his socialist health-care bill, which, if passed, would place government in our lives from cradle to grave.

Yeah, you've heard this kind of hateful blather from Washington before.
