The clown club!!
A way to know if a journalist is asking a softball question is when the President of the United States compliments the reporter after he or she asks it. That happened twice on Tuesday as Barack Obama talked to reporters about the government shutdown. The President called on Sam Stein of the liberal Huffington Post website. Stein dutifully wondered, “With Speaker Boehner so far unwilling to hold a vote on a clean CR, what assurances can you give to those affected by a shutdown who are concerned about an even longer impasse?” He added, “And how worried are you personally that your preferred solution to this — a clear CR at sequestration levels — may do harm to the nation’s economy and your second term agenda?” Finding the question appropriately fawning, Obama responded, “Sam, you’re making an important point.” New York Times reporter Mark Landler even provided examples of how the shutdown has caused damage: “Are there specific things that you can point to where you already have seen some damage? And one that occurs to me…”
As usual. Not having facts and having them thrown back at you, with you displaying your inability to deal with them. Makes one look rather foolish!!
Appearing on Andrea Mitchell’s MSNBC 1 p.m. ET hour show on Tuesday, Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy slammed the press for not doing its job in pointing out the hypocrisy of ObamaCare being delayed for certain groups but not for all Americans: “…the media won’t even ask the question about, ‘Why are you [the Obama administration] treating families different than big businesses?’…That’s how pathetic, I think, news reporting has become, when we won’t ask tough questions to the administration.” That response was prompted by Mitchell ranting that Republican calls for a one-year delay of the ObamaCare individual mandate was a “non-negotiable demand.” Moments later, after Duffy explained that the GOP has “been incredibly reasonable, making a small ask,” Mitchell was aghast: “Do you consider it a small ask that he [Obama] get rid of the central part of his health care plan that was upheld by a – by the vote of a presidential election, and the United States Supreme Court.” Duffy replied: “Andrea, hold on. That’s your spin.” Mitchell laughably asserted: “That’s not spin.”
Dan Rather? Hello? You are still…A talking head for the left, never have considered you a ‘reporter’, just a parrot, always have been and always will be..
On Friday’s Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, Dan Rather poured cold water on Wendy Davis’ chances of winning the Texas gubernatorial race, but maintained a glimmer of hope: “I’m not predicting she’ll win. If you have to bet the trailer money, you bet she loses. But overnight’s a long time in politics – a week is forever – and we’re talking about an election that doesn’t happen [until] a year from now. So, let her rip.” Rather and Rachel Maddow also hyped the supposed extent of Davis’ likely Republican opponent, Greg Abbott. After the MSNBC host labeled Abbott a “hardcore conservative,” the former CBS anchor replied that the Texas Republican is “so far to the right…that he makes Rick Perry look like a liberal and Ted Cruz look like a moderate.”
Now this is much more like what one expects from the Crap News Network..
CNN’s legal analyst Jeff Toobin thinks Justice Antonin Scalia is stuck in the 1950s on social issues but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is up to date with today’s citizens. The entire Court is a “deeply political institution,” Toobin admitted, yet his descriptions for the conservative Scalia and the liberal Ginsburg differed significantly. Scalia is “a 1950s social conservative,” he insisted on Tuesday’s AC360 Later, while Ginsburg “is a woman who is very much in tune with the modern world” who has presided over “two same-sex marriages.”
One wonders about the real motive behind this….
CNN scored an exclusive interview with a “Fast and Furious” whistleblower on Tuesday morning, and New Day co-host Chris Cuomo was intent on letting his guest tell his story that the Obama administration did not want him to tell. The guest, ATF agent John Dodson, wrote a book on the operation “Fast and Furious” but the government is blocking its publication. Cuomo’s first question to Dodson prodded him to tell his story: “What do you want people to know about the operation? What it was supposed to be and how it went wrong? What’s your message?”
Well now that is an endorsement..NOT! The Harpy’s from the skewed ‘Veiw’ endorsing a loon…
ABC’s mid-morning talk show The View has repeatedly featured anchors and guests who promote the debunked 9/11 truther movement. That tradition continued on Tuesday as conspiracy theorist Jesse Ventura appeared as a co-host. Although Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy avoided Ventura’s September 11th beliefs, the former Minnesota governor expounded on his other favorite conspiracy theory: the assassination of John Kennedy. Asked by Shepherd who killed JFK, Ventura demurred: “That’s a difficult thing to say because he made so many enemies and I don’t even have the time to go into that but I can tell you this: I can’t tell you who killed him, but I can tell you who didn’t kill him, Lee Harvey Oswald.” This thrilled Shepherd, who kissed Ventura and praised, “Because you know if you decided to run for president, Jesse, I would vote for you.”
One big reason the fight against Obama and his ObamaScare!!
Bulling government is more like it!! These are the People’s properties, since we paid for them. Not the government…The People…So much bullshit from a pointless pResident and Government..
