Oh no, President Obama accidentally let it slip that he's just waiting till after he's suckered America into reelecting him to sell us out to Vladimir Putin. The media had been so careful to hide all his radical tendencies, and there he goes, blabbing on a hot mike, telling Russian president Dmitry Medvedev he'd "have more flexibility" on Russia's missile shield after November. "Caught On Tape: Obama Tells Russians He May Sell Out on Missile Defense After Election," read the conservative site Townhall's headline. "Sounds like Obama is selling out the American people, making secret deals with the Russians to dismantle our missile defense and make America weaker," TheRightScoop.com warned. But while the Medvedev comment offers a new datapoint, the idea of Obama as a foreign agent is an old one: As the 2012 Republican presidential primary winds down, some of the most paranoid anti-Obama memes are winding back up. The most obvious bit of recycling came from Socialists.com, which now links to BarackObama.com. The prank is well-timed to go with the Supreme Court's hearing of oral arguments on Obamacare. But Socialists.com isn't new. Two years ago it was all about Obama's lust for wealth redistribution inspired by the East.
The all-encompassing theme is that the press didn't dig into Obama's background to find all the radical stuff. In 2008, that meant that once Obama tricked us into voting him into the White House, he'd do everything possible to turn America into an anti-religion centrally planned dictatorship. Now that Obama's in office, the argument hasn't evolved much at all. Here's then-Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele in 2009, saying Obama "wasn't vetted" and "came out of nowhere." Here's Newsmax a year ago: "Ex-CIA Operative: Obama Never Properly Vetted." Here's World Net Daily Monday: "MAILMAN DISCOURAGED FROM TELLING OBAMA STORY." (The story he wasn't allowed to tell four years ago is that the mailman heard Bill Ayers' mom say something nice about Obama one time.) Sarah Palin has been on this talking point for years. Earlier this month, she told Fox News that the debt, energy, and national security problems are all the press's fault, because reporters didn't dig up enough Obama dirt. "Look at the tragedy that is happening in America today," Palin said, "with us becoming less and less solvent, more and more beholden and shackled to foreign countries, and less energy independent and less secure because our sitting president was not vetted."
She said the same thing in January: "We know the mistake made in our country four years ago was a candidate that was not vetted," she told Fox, meaning Obama. Ann Coulter made it more clear in August, five days into Rick Perry's presidential campaign, complaining about the huge volume of Perry stories in national newspapers. "There was a New Yorker article on [Michele] Bachmann that went back to her ancestors in 1861 in order to establish they didn't actually settle in Iowa, but near Iowa. What were Obama's relatives doing in 1861?," Coulter said. "The media can't even walk into Trinity United Church and get a video of Obama's minister, but they're going back to Bachmann's relatives in 1861."
Some on the right are more subtle. Look, it's not that Newt Gingrich thinks the president is actually a Muslim, it's just that Obama acts like a Muslim. There's a nice roundup in the form of an email being forwarded titled "FOOD FOR THOUGHT." It's got your radical roots, your foreign sympathies, your disrespect for America -- think of it as a primer for the general election campaign. Maybe only parts will end up in superPAC ads, but you can guarantee you'll be emailed the rest from your grandma:
