The News Pauper: FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe Is A Neocon Shill

By W.B. Dunne

Here is an example of a statement that the NP thinks typifies the right-wing subterfuge of our discourse:

(h/t to Crooks and Liars)

Matt Kibbe: “Well I think if you look at whats happened down there, its a sad story of government incompetence as well as negligence on the part of BP. And I think what you have to look at is when there is a natural disaster like this we do expect our government to do some things and to do them well. And the whole point of limited government is you want the government to be competent at those few things that we need it to do and this is an example where the government was asleep at the switch and theres a series of regulations that led to deep drilling as opposed to more economical and safer options.”

Take a look at that first sentence

Always CYA with I think, in case down the road you need to say, I USED to think to escape enhanced techniques of interrogation!

“Well I think if you look at whats happened down there, its a sad story of government incompetence as well as negligence on the part of BP.”

Yeah, but that sentence is directed at the Obama government with the intent of smearing itstated more perfectly, its a sad story of the negligence of the Bush-Cheney era and incompetence on the part of BP for drilling three miles into the earth without a plan. The NP just loves the condescension in the down there, cleverly implied is that Matt is up here, wherever that might be!

Now, the second sentence the death sentence I call it And I think what you have to look at is when there is a natural disaster like this we do expect our government to do some things and to do them well.”

There Matt goes again, ‘thinking,” this time in order to, like a helpful teacher, direct our awestruck gaze to something that we otherwise would have missed, a NATURAL DISASTER! Before we move on, Matt, tell us all what is NATURAL about Dick Cheney neutering the energy policy for his Big Oil cronies, and drilling a hole in the ocean floor?

Ill give ya that disaster bit though. There is so much bullshit stacked in this sentence one wonders why I would go on dismantling itI wonder too. Im like exploring on the bullshit frontier and I tell ya its lonely, and I’m only halfway through!

“We do expect our government to do some things and to do them well.”
