Over at the “Real” Debate Wisconsin blog, Fred Dooley wonders if President Obama is insane, citing material sourced from an article in the European Union Times that indicated French President Nicolas Sarkozy recently referred to President Barack Obama as, “a dangerous[ly] aliéné”, which translates into Obama being a “mad lunatic”, or in the American vernacular, “insane”. While I can understand why Fred Dooley chose to run with the story, given his proclivity for rushing to attack President Obama (and liberals in general) at every chance he gets, Fred Dooley really should check his sources. The EU Times, which originally reported the story Fred linked to, is far from being a reputable news source; it’s the same source that alleged Russia was responsible for the plane crash that killed the Polish president and 96 others. What’s more, the EU Times is also connected to Stormfront, a white nationalist and supremacist neo-Nazi Internet forum, where folks are busy raising money to help support the EU Times. I could also cite the fact that the EU Times website is registered to Jessica Nachtman, wife of Christopher Nachtman, a former member of the neo-Nazi group National Alliance who more recently has been active in Volksfront, a racist skinhead group.
I wonder if Fred Dooley bothered to check his source before he cited it, and what’s more, I’m wondering if Fred Dooley stands behind the story.
Editor’s Note: I had commented on Fred’s blog pointing out how suspect his source was, but par for the course, Fred deleted my comment. So much for “Real” Debate.

This is a battle I have been having with fred too. Fairly often, he makes posts that either have no source material to back up his claims, or the supposed source material isn’t sourced either.
Yeah, Fred likes to play fast and loose with the facts.
Dooley had a second swing and a miss today as well.
I’m not one bit shocked.
Anyone wanna put any money on how long it takes Fred to delete said post?
