Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 19, 2016

Just as conservatives felt they had deep-sixed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's five years of questioning President Barack Obama's place of birth, the head of a super PAC boosting Trump's candidacy opened a new can of worms. In an interview on NBC on Friday, political consultant Alex Castellanos tried to set aside Trump's birther conspiracies only to use a common racist dog whistle in the process. "I think the big question about Obama is not where he was born or his faith. The big question about Obama is has he been -- has he considered himself more of a globalist than an American," Alex Castellanos told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd. "There is an otherness to this president. And people have tried to exploit that politically in different way."

I can think of a lot of ways we should be grateful to Obama for his "otherness."

Most of which was his ability to drag America back from the brink of a recession. That ranks up there real high.

As for Globalist, that's a good thing ~ considering that the opposite is Isolationist and a nose dive into a deep Depression and abject poverty.

Trump doesn't know much about a Global economy unless it involves how much money he can make from golf courses and hotels.

Alex Castellanos is a completely useless human being. I've watched him off and on for years, dispicable person.

The plan to go global is for the benefit of the 1%. By now it should be obvious that the Clintons, Bushes, and Obama embrace this policy as they pronounce "American Exceptionalism". The price is lots of death and destruction overseas and abandonment of the constitutional principle of promoting the general welfare.

Sounds like he's just channeling Rodham's deplorable campaign against Obama in 2008: Rezko, Wright, and Ayers, oh my!

To decipher RCades criptic post, deplorable = racist.

It is a surrogate, whatever that is? Who cares....

Thats a false dichotomy.

What are you a Republican from the 90's? But I did see where GWB was going to vote for Hillary, so there is that.

" false dichotomy."

What do you think TPP is except an advancement in a global economy?

Or will be as soon as they get the kinks ironed out to Hillary's satisfaction. That means she wants more protection for American workers.

I dunno. It seems to me that we should encourage the gooopers' attacks on Obama.

He's not running.

The issue isn't whether we should engage in trade or be isolationists. It is whether we should be more productive and constantly use banking and the military to impose our will on others.

To willingly surrender our manufacturing technologies for cheap labor and think we can continue to prosper in a service economy dominated by Finance, Insurance and Real Estate is a very bad idea.

It really is beating a dead horse. Not only that, it's beating a dead horse with a pair of woolen socks. What's the god damn point?

Is Globalist the same as "Otherness?"

I don't think so...

I found Obama's "Otherness" attractive as a candidate in 2008.

But I assume I'm not talking about the same type of "otherness" as this guy is talking about.
