‘We’re On A Mission’ – Big Media Versus America

Update: A bit of esprit d’escalier but better late than never – Reince Priebus: Let’s face it, Chris Matthews is a jerk and no one watches his show



This bit from an I/E Republican/conservative at HotAir is also commendable:

“Incidentally, Matthews isn’t the only reporter sputtering in indignation today about perceived racism in Romney’s welfare attacks. Thomas Edsall unfurled his piece bright and early this morning — coinciding with day one of the GOP convention, conveniently enough — and then the Atlantic followed suit later, replete with a photographic analysis accusing the RNC’s ad team of darkening Obama’s skin. (Obama supporters leveled that charge at Hillary’s ad team during the 2008 primaries too, back when she was a horrible racist and not a wonderful post-partisan feminist icon and diplomat.) My hunch is that there’s only one man in America who could get away with criticizing liberal welfare policies from the center-right without drawing a racism charge, but when I stop to think about that, I remember that that guy was also accused of racism repeatedly for opposing Obama in 2007 and early 2008. So, my hunch is wrong. This argument simply can’t be made. Oh well.”

Hey Reince, take a look below at what we wanted you to say to Jabba the Hut.

——————————————————————————————

Herman Cain said at a unity rally this past weekend, “We’re on a mission – to defeat Barack Obama.”

Big Media is on a mission too. Today MSNBC provides the evidential video: Matthews accuses GOP of playing the race card against team that accused Romney of wanting to bring back slavery, or something:



The idiocy from Chris Matthews cried out for Priebus to say: ‘Chris, you are so far up Obama’s ass you can’t see daylight or your own shriveled testicles.’

Particularly laughable was Chris Matthews playing the po’ bo card. Yeah, Barack, er “Barry” in those days, was really oppressed:

“You can play your games and giggle about it but the fact is your side playing that card. When you start talking about work requirements, you know what game you’re playing and everybody knows what game you’re playing. It’s a race card and if your name’s Romney yeah you were well born — you went to prep school, yeah, brag about it,” Chris Matthews said on “Morning Joe.”

“This guy has an African name and he’s got to live with it. Look who’s gone further in their life. Who was born on third base? Making fun of the guy’s birth certificate issue when it was never a real issue except for the right wing,” Matthews added.

Wasn’t Barry Obama the guy who went to the best prep school in Hawaii and smoked the finest weed there? He attended the same school as Steve Case who owns Dell Computer but Matthews wants to turn this into a ghetto school in the slums? Obama, the leader of the Choom Gang, miraculously then gets into the finest elite schools in America, gets a payoff house and other gifts from Tony Rezko, smears all the opponents he has ever run against with rumor and innuendo, gets gifted the Democratic Party nomination only to send this generation’s Choom Gangs to prison for smoking what he was smoking on a daily basis. Play your games Chris.

Wasn’t Obama the guy living with his grandma, the VP of a Big Bank – ya’ know a bankster? Oh, the oppression!

Chris Matthews as we all know was playing the race card. You can’t say anything about Barack Obama that Big Media does not approve of without being hysterically denounced as the messenger of “coded” messages, “dog whistles”, or out and out “racism”.

There was a time when we “liberals” said we were against the “thought police”. Now the thought police are out in force on cable and in broadcast television and every Big Media outlet – beating down free thought. The old Berkley “free speech” movement is now the Stalin Censorship Code.

We do not think there is anything “progressive” about applauding seals who cannot face the cold facts of reality. Indeed we find it shameful. The “hive mind” is disgusting unto the Pink.

These days what pretends to be “liberal” or “progressive” or “creative class” or “coalition of the ascendent” is nothing but a hive mind. They pretend to be high minded and well educated but these are lemmings, worker ants serving an Orwellian lord, worker bees in the hive – unquestioning and unwilling to tolerate questions.

The former “public editor” of the New York Times describes what it is like to now work at was once a great newspaper, now a propaganda outlet without shame:

“Back then, I viewed The Times as a deeply resourced news organization that was challenged to recreate itself in an environment that was smashing old media and vaulting new forms to prominence. I saw myself as something of a coroner, called in to autopsy flawed news articles that drew complaints.

What I’ve seen has surprised me. [snip]

I also noted two years ago that I had taken up the public editor duties believing “there is no conspiracy” and that The Times’s output was too vast and complex to be dictated by any Wizard of Oz-like individual or cabal. I still believe that, but also see that the hive on Eighth Avenue is powerfully shaped by a culture of like minds — a phenomenon, I believe, that is more easily recognized from without than from within.

When The Times covers a national presidential campaign, I have found that the lead editors and reporters are disciplined about enforcing fairness and balance, and usually succeed in doing so. Across the paper’s many departments, though, so many share a kind of political and cultural progressivism — for lack of a better term — that this worldview virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times.

As a result, developments like the Occupy movement and gay marriage seem almost to erupt in The Times, overloved and undermanaged, more like causes than news subjects.

A “hive” mind is not progressive. It is stunted and retrograde. Eventually it becomes totalitarian.

When the “hive mind” is disturbed, it stings. The stings of faked “racism” are stabbed at the disturber. The attacks come from within the hive to those outside. Eventually, those within dare not disagree lest they be attacked, and the hive becomes jive. Soon the naked emperor is seen to have brocade capes and gold threaded magnificence.

We wish that in today’s confrontation with Chris Matthews GOP Chair Reince Preibus had lived up to his promise “If they’re gonna punch us, we’re gonna punch back with brass knuckles.”

We do wish that Preibus today had used that line about Matthews being so far up Obama’s ass. But we can’t have everything. But sometimes we do get surprised.

You could have hit us over the head with Chuck Schumer’s treacherous 2×4 and we would not have been more stunned. It was a milestone in the Anybody But Obama history trail.

Take a gander at what shocked us, but consult with your medical practitioner before viewing if you have a heart condition. It made the rounds last week, but still has the potential to stop hearts and stroke brains:



Yup, that’s Norah O’Donnell of the Obama protection squad we call Big Media. Yup, it was CBS: Obama needs to answer for the tone of the campaign.

We began to feel woozy when we heard O’Donnell on CBS say that Obama needs to answer for the tone of his 2012 campaign — but we grabbed for the smelling salts at that last sentence in the video. Watch it again:



Many people believe that Obama was about Hope and Change in 2008 but it is true he ran a very negative campaign in 2008 as well.”

Smelling salts please.

Notice O’Donnell says “he ran” not some distancing collection of words such as ‘his campaign was not as positive as advertised’ which is usually how Big Media will approach the filthy Obama’s filthy campaign in 2008.

Barack Obama and his campaign, which he controlled, mocked John McCain as a doddering old man who lumbered along clumsily. Big Media failed at every turn to denounce Barack Obama and his campaign for mocking a former prisoner of war whose bones had been shattered leaving him unable to physically glide through life. As to the dirty campaign against Hillary Clinton our archives are alive and filled with much of the dirty, often anonymous, mud Obama flung – ably assisted by Big Media.

After years of lies by such as Ben Smith, who is now actively involved in undermining Mitt Romney and still fluffing Barack Obama, after years of Big Media Stalinist twisting of history, a Big Media outlet airs the obvious: “he ran a very negative campaign in 2008“.

Was it Republicans or conservatives that introduced the “N” word (such is the state of thought police politics that we have to engage in euphemisms worthy of the Stalinist USSR) this campaign season? No it was another low life at Chris Matthews’ MSNBC.

May we quote Michelle Obama? After Joe Biden played the race card with his “chains, ya’ll” race-baiting, the New York Times had a report of Obama exonerating Biden:

“But he did have his wife offer a strong defense of his own character. [snip]

She talked about Mr. Obama’s mother and his grandmother, who often saw men promoted ahead of her during her career as a bank officer. “As president, all you have to guide you are your values and your visions and your life experiences,” Mrs. Obama said, making no mention of Mr. Romney’s background as the son of a business executive and governor. “Who you are and what you stand for. And we all know who my husband stands for, don’t we?”

The president, Mrs. Obama said, “is the son of a single mother who struggled to put herself through school and pay the bills. He’s the grandson of a woman who woke up before dawn every day to catch a bus to her job.”

She continued, as the applause thickened: “So what I mean is, your president knows what it means to see your family struggle. This is not a hypothetical situation for him.”

How many lies are embedded in those remarks? Too many to track down fully today. But the monstrous audacity to talk about men “promoted ahead of” women in order to appeal to women voters is too much. Of course the New York Times had no hive mind interest in noting the hypocrisy of lantern jawed Michelle. No mention of Hillary Clinton. No mention that grandma was a bank VP in the paper of record. Yes Michelle we all know what your husband stands for and our mission is to defeat him.

Our mission is to defeat Barack Obama. Big Media has a mission too and Chris Matthews played his part today.

After Norah O’Donnell broke away from the hive mind for a few moments, Jake Tapper joined her in honest expression of thought:

“Tapper said that he hopes the media does not unfairly cover this election and favor one candidate over another, as he says the institution did in 2008.

Ingraham asked Tapper if he was happy with the substance of political media coverage thus far. Tapper replied that he was not, saying that the state of the nation’s economy and the high unemployment rate are voters’ paramount concerns and that he would like to see “more action taken and more emphasis given to this issue.”

Ingraham then quoted Mark Halperin:

“Ingraham then played a clip of reporter and author Mark Halperin saying that he believes the political press is often guilty of talking about what the Obama campaign wants them to talk about, specifically in regard to Mitt Romney’s tax returns, as opposed to other, more pressing issues.”

Tapper’s response echoed Big Pink:

“I have said before… [that I] thought the media helped tip the scales. I didn’t think the coverage in 2008 was especially fair to either Hilary Clinton or John McCain,” said Tapper. “Sometimes I saw with story selection, magazine covers, photos picked, [the] campaign narrative, that it wasn’t always the fairest coverage.”

“not always the fairest coverage” – that’s an understatement.



Big Media will do everything in its considerable power to distract from the miserable Obama economy. Big Media will everything to parrot the Obama campaign narrative. Big Media has its mission.

We have a mission too: Defeat Barack Obama and his enablers, like Claire McCaskill and the hive mind of Big Media.

  1. The Republican convention is about to begin. Then it will very quickly shut down until tomorrow. Lovely weather in Tampa is not the problem.

  2. Obama Email to Supporters: If I Lose, It’s Your Fault

    by Ben Shapiro 26 Aug 2012
    (Breitbart)

    Today, President Obama sent out a campaign email essentially blaming his supporters if he loses. See, he’s supposedly being outspent. And because he’s supposedly being outspent, he’s losing. And he can’t spend more money unless his supporters fork it over.

    This is the campaign version of Obama’s entire economic argument: he can’t fix the economy unless he spends more money. And unless we give him more money, he can’t spend it. So if the economy fails, it’s our fault.

    Here’s the perverse logic:

    Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there.

    But the folks asking me about this don’t want an explanation — they want to know what I’m going to do about it.

    And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you ….

    We’re losing this air war right now.

    I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen.

    Perhaps the most laughable aspect of this latest desperate missive is Obama’s assertion that he doesn’t have “as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008.” He’s done nothing but campaign since the beginning of the year. From January to mid-June, Obama held more than 160 fundraisers. During that same period in 2004, President George W. Bush had held just 79 fundraisers.

    Here’s the sad fact for Obama: nobody’s enamored with him anymore. His spendthrift ways haven’t just bankrupted the country – they’ve bankrupted his campaign. And he still blames everyone else.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/26/Obama-email-if-I-lose-your-fault

  3. If you think you are getting used to obama’s tricks and deceits – wait until you read about this. This plan is more devious than anything I could imagine.

    He and his ‘friends’ want to rewrite history making Muslims the indigenous people instead of the Native Americans! They are expecting this change to be approved by the UN.

    The only word I can think of to describe this action is evil.

    http://www.westernjournalism.com/obama-to-lose-yet-another-huge-voting-bloc/
    ‘Native Americans are very angry to learn that Muslims in the United States of America are being touted as “indigenous”, a complete falsehood. The fact is, American Indians are the indigenous people of North America ‘.

    Hasn’t the government done enough already to harm the American Indians – the true indigenous people?

  4. Wbboei, the reason Republicans cancelled today is because there was not going to be TV coverage on the networks. The weather was an excuse.

    The networks’s excuse was that they wanted to give equal time to the Rs and the Ds. But it was the Dimocrats who could not come up with the money for their 4 day event so they had to cancel the first day. The networks should have covered the full Republican convention because it was not the Republicans’ fault that the Dims did not get the money for a four day event.

    Other than some rain last night and some strong breezes the weather in Tampa is good for an indoor convention.

  5. The Dr. Kate mentioned in the article I posted above concerning Native Americans and Muslims, put up a picture of Obama on her blog today.

    http://drkatesview.wordpress.com/

    The only things visible in the photo are the crescent moon and one star.

    Is he telling the Muslims that he is with them? I think so.

    Incidentally, Dr. Kate is a real American Indian. Not the Warren kind – a real one!

    Trust me, we did have such a phone call. Evidently, you do not remember it. Also, go back and check your email from the 2008-9 time frame and you will see emails which I sent you. But lets get back to the main point. Are you willing to train your attacks on Obama during the next three months. There are other leftists on this blog, for whom I have the highest respect. They see through Obama and have been willing to attack him. So how about you?

  7. http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/article1248149.ece

    Earlier on Monday, organizers had arrived at the park to kick off the Coalition to March on the RNC on Monday. About 5,000 demonstrators were expected.

    But by midmorning, as Tampa felt some minor effects from Tropical Storm Isaac, the number of protesters out at Perry Harvey, Sr. Park didn’t reach 500. There were as many journalists as there were protesters.

    “journalists”, “protesters” – aren’t they the same?

  8. “We do wish that Preibus today had used that line about Matthews being so far up Obama’s ass. But we can’t have everything. But sometimes we do get surprised.”

    I’m not letting Preibus off the hook so easily. Is this the way he fights back with “brass knuckles”?!!! OMG! Couldn’t help but think Preibus is such a weenie!!! If he wasn’t prepared for the likes of Mathews and his race-bating, the RNC should get someone on TV who can really fight back. Priebus could have turned that attack on it’s head by enumerating all the race-bating BO campaign has and is doing (starting with the Clinton’s on up to Biden’s “gaff”). (He could have even begun turning the attack around by making fun of Mathew’s man crush on Obama, reminding him of his pathetic tingle-up-his-leg.) When it comes to BO’s (& msm’s) race-baiting tactics, the RNC should not be caught flat footed, at this point. JEEEZUS!

  9. “The idiocy from Chris Matthews cried out for Priebus to say: ‘Chris, you are so far up Obama’s ass you can’t see daylight or your own shriveled testicles.’”

    Indeed! Would have LOVED that response from Priebus. Or, he could have asked Mathews if he was the new Obama Girl, cause he sure is acting like Obama’s bitch! (Excuse the sexist language! But you get my point.) I recall when Senator Bachman reminded Mathews about the tingle up his leg he was ranting about it for weeks.

    Sorry, about all the tirades, but seeing and hearing Mathews up to his old tricks first thing in the morning puts me in a foul mood.

    Looks like this Morning Joe segment is making the rounds this morning, so I hope what the public takes away from it is just how rude and obnoxious Mathews is.

  10. LOL admin! I talked to a friend yesterday and had mentioned that the “storm” was a gift to the Republicans. I knew it would deaden any enthusiasm for protests, and I told him that the only thing protesters were guaranteed to get was a wet ass.

    You are correct about the weather. I live about 45 miles away from central Tampa, due north of St. Petersburg. It was very breezy yesterday morning with no rain. Once it started to rain, it was no big deal. As a matter of fact, I was even in Tampa and St. Petersburg last night, and again, no big deal. I’ve experienced much worse driving conditions, including flooded streets, from regular old summer thunderstorms. The storm was exaggerated. Right now, it’s mostly cloudy, but dry. I see some blue sky here and there, and even the wind is minimal. I am only a about 3 miles in from the Gulf of Mexico.

    If anything, the Republicans should have started their convention on time so that they could have cancelled early if need be so as not to be holding a convention when an actual hurricane strikes the northern gulf. We all know that the media and Demonrats would say that the Republicans are partying while gulf coasy residents are suffering. Well, in answer to that, Obama was golfing when the gulf oil spill was destroying a way of life for so many in the region. No real urgency came from him at the time, which helped support the charge that he was somehow complicite in the event that lead up to the oil rig explosion, and the resultant mass pollution, plus the removal of oil rig assets to Brazil where apparently it’s fine by Obama to tap oil reserves in deep ocean water, but not ok to do so in the Gulf of Mexico as Obama tries to smother American oil production in the US.

  11. NoMoBama, here’s a picture of the hundreds of protesters: http://weaselzippers.us/2012/08/27/liberal-the-nation-hundreds-protesting-at-rnc/

    As to the weather, you are right of course that the RNC should have started the convention on time. It would be protection against probable calls that the convention be cancelled later in the week. If a tree falls in New Orleans Barack Obama will be there to mourn and Big Media will declare him a god (again). If anything at all goes wrong (wet lawns, overflowing drainpipes, children with wet hair) Big Media will denounce the Republicans as cruel for continuing to “party” while America drowns.

    Your romp through history is accurate as well. As Trixta points out, the Republicans and Priebus are going to have to toughen up. Of course we’ve said the same thing and we still hope against hope that we will be listened to before it becomes much too late. We don’t want to wake up on November 8 crying pink tears.

  12. New York Times A Sinking Ship That Can No Longer Aid Obama
    Liz Peek

    As they head to the convention, anxious Republicans wonder, do Americans get it? Do they understand what is at stake? Will the liberal media prevail?

    To which I say: not to worry! Americans are on top of the issues, and ahead of the curve. How can I be so certain? There are several data points, but let’s start with one that is especially gratifying – one that shows that the country no longer believes in the New York Times.

    In a recent Pew poll, the legendary paper of record was voted less “believable” than ABC News, the Wall Street Journal, CNN, NBC news, and CBS News. What a comedown for the Grey Lady.

    Not only is the paper considered less trustworthy than most others news organizations, the decline has been sharp. The average believability of the 13 news organizations reviewed was 56%; the Times came in at 49%. (The Wall Street Journal comes in at 58%, by comparison.) Whereas trust in all those outfits has dropped in recent years, the Times has fared worse than most. Since 2010, their rating has sunk from 58 to 49.

    For a paper that boasts a proud heritage and certainly a devoted following among liberals, this should be worrisome. Indeed, in his “farewell column” published this past weekend, Public Editor Arthur Brisbane, essentially the paper’s ombudsman, took the Times to task, saying that its “political and cultural progressivism…virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times.” He describes the paper as a “hive on Eighth Avenue…shaped by a culture of like minds” – a uni-view that he suggests is more visible from the outside than the inside. That may or may not be correct, but for sure, Americans have taken note.

    Americans are on top of the issues, and ahead of the curve. How can I be so certain? There are several data points, but let’s start with one that is especially gratifying – one that shows that the country no longer believes in the New York Times.

    For the Obama White House, this disaffection with our leading newspaper should be something of a heads-up. If the Times acts as a virtual mouthpiece for the administration, and people do not find it credible, what does that say about the president?

    It is not only 63% of Republicans that judge the Times lacking in credibility, it is also 56% of independents. Among those same independents, only 45% consider the Wall Street Journal unreliable.

    The Times’ performance is nearly identical to that of Fox News, which is widely considered right-leaning. While neither organization is likely to welcome such pigeon-holing, branding the Times a partisan mouthpiece would surely have been more controversial in the past.

    For someone who grew up in a Republican household that nonetheless considered the Times an essential part of our intellectual diet, the paper’s increasing bias over the past decade has been breathtaking.

    The carefully placed articles that laud the president’s security chops (pieces that have now landed the White House in hot water for information leaks) and those that incessantly remind Americans that Mitt Romney is a MORMON and a wealthy one to boot – the reporting has become as one-sided as the sledge-hammer editorials and over-the-top op-eds. (Does anyone really consider one-note Paul Krugman, who never met a government spending hike he didn’t like, a deep thinker?)

    An article that appeared last week is typical of the paper’s embarrassing slide. The online headline claims “In Poll, Obama is Given Trust Over Medicare.” The piece states that the Romney-Ryan approach to reining in our most threatening entitlement program is “deeply unpopular” in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin. The authors point out that Medicare is the third-most important issue to likely voters in those critical states, and say polls show the GOP team not winning the debate on that subject. It is only after 6 paragraphs that other findings of the same polls are revealed – namely that since Ryan came on board, presumably bringing Medicare to the fore, President Obama’s six-point lead over Romney in Wisconsin and Florida has evaporated. The race in those states is now too close to call – despite what the Times claims is “the risk Mr. Romney took when he chose Mr. Ryan to be his running mate.” A risk, apparently, worth taking.

    Does the Times care? When the paper’s Managing Editor Dean Baquet reveals that Obama and Romney campaign officials are reviewing and exercising veto control over their coverage, does the Grey Lady blush?

    Frank Rich, writing in his final column for the paper, probably reflected the sentiment of his former colleagues when he wrote, “The Times is our essential news organization, and more so now than ever, when so many others have dwindled in size, ambition and scope.” Many people would agree with that assessment. Does it still hold true if the paper is not believable?

    The public has caught onto the biased New York Times, but that’s not the only reason for optimism. Consider the (unlikely) election of Scott Brown in sapphire-blue Massachusetts and the thumping handed the president in the 2010 election. Remember the Wisconsin win of incumbent Governor Scott Walker who survived a recall election despite a veritable tidal wave of money and support from organized labor. The pundits anticipated none of these upheavals.

    Remember, too, the persistent skepticism about ObamaCare? Mr. Obama has now given dozens – perhaps even hundreds – of speeches in favor of his health care bill, and has spent millions on ads touting the law’s advantages. Notwithstanding this onslaught, Americans are as opposed as ever.

    Really, it is extraordinary – and it is promising. Our country understands that you can’t offer free health care to 31 million people and not have it deepen our deficits. They understand that taking $716 billion from Medicare cannot leave our seniors with the care they have counted on.

    This is a tight race. The president remains popular personally, despite the unpopular nature of his policies. I have every faith that come November policy will out, and that Americans will vote for the good of the country; I believe they get it.

    I did not see the interview, but I take it Rence did poorly. But before you even get to the question of how well or badly he did, there is the threshold question of whatever possessed him to go on Matthews show in the first place? There is only one reason to go on that show and that is to destroy Matthews. It is idiots delight to choose that forum to get your message out and there are few if any changeable minds in his audience.

    But suppose your goal is to destroy Matthews–to show him for the lunatic he is. Rence is not the guy to do that. You need someone who knows how to turn the questioning and Matthews inside out. If Bill Rusher was still alive and decided it was worth his time to crush a maligant bug like Matthews, the Matthews would be out cold tow minutes after the opening bell, and msnbc would be showing re runs of To Catch A Predator for the rest of the time slot, while Matthews would be rushed to the hospital with a brain hemmorage. But Bill was not a Republican, he was a conservative, and he wiped out the likes of Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe inter alia on The Advocates.

    Ari Fleisher has shown a similar ability to kick the crap out of Matthews–with humor and talking over him, showing him for the fool he is. But Rence is too intellectual and frankly not of their calibre. To repeat, the only reason to go on Matthews show is to eviserate him, before he can destroy you.

  14. Wow, admin. That picture made me laugh. Here’s a comment below the picture that you posted that was equally funny.

    It almost looks like an obama rally only there are more people at this one.

  15. The way to deal with Matthews is to tell him I do not agree with your question, to remind him of his statement where he said our goal is to make Obama successful, to force him to defend his boss Phil Griffin who has said msnbc is part of the Obama Adminstration, to ask him whether he believe Romney killed Soptic’s wife, to ask him whether Romney should be sent to jail because Obama idiot calls him a felon, and demand Obama’s college records.

  16. One more point in re Matthews. He begged Hillary to go on his show and she laughed at him and did not do it. Why the GOP does not do the same is a profound mystery to me.

  17. The Charlotte Observer reports that children will not be allowed
    access on the floor of the Democratic National Convention and that
    daycare will not be provided for delegates who bring their kids.

    Women’s rights activist Gloria Steinem and several National
    Organization of Women chapters have called out the DNC for the
    “discrimination against mothers with young children.”

    http://charlotte.cbslocal.com/2012/08/27/womens-groups-upset-dem-convention-banning-kids-from-floor/

  18. I agree, wbboei – it needs to be thrown in his face. I’d love to see him interview Sununu. He would put Tingles in his place as he did Soledad. Matthews should have already been laughed out of the “journalism” business. The Obama campaigning that he and some of the other serious offenders on MSNBC and other medial outlets do, speaks to the poor standards in terms of professionalism, ethics and performance in the field of journalism. Makes you wonder wth the journalism schools are teaching.

    I’m so glad this to see Big Pink take on MSM. I mean, it was always implied. we have been aware of the extreme pro-Obama bias in media since 2008. But, I like the fact that it’s a stated mission.

  19. I just reminded Twitter about 2008:
    2008 @MittRomney @Bob_Casey: Hillary had death wish4Obama: wwwhuffingtonpost.com/stephen-ducat/death-wish-ii-what-hillar_b_103492.html & Bill Clinton: “I Am Not a Racist” –

  20. Dimocrats who could not come up with the money for their 4 day event so they had to cancel the first day
    ————————————–

    So the party of Obama does not believe in deficit spending where their own money is concerned. But when its comes to OPM–the money of the American People, and their financial future, the party of Obama says deficit? what deficit? Debt? What debt. This is the Age of Obama. Le bon temps roule.

    The Dims do not want to be debtors themselves. They want the American People, our children and grandchildren to be the gurantors of their pay to play schemes, and to saddle us with nothing but inextinguishable debt. But that is only the half. The other half will be to inflate our way out of it and debase our currency via Bernake.

    Thank you for posting the Sarah! video. I so respect her. She is absolutely correct about the Tea Party being independent of poltical party. I wonder if those that attack the Tea Party of which I now identify with more than any other political movement understand that they are not attacking Republicans per se, but INDEPENDENTS which in my opinion is a losing proposition.

    Sarah Palin is the real deal, and that is so threatening to party cabals who are trying to control individuals while Sarah! is trying to set them free! Stupid not!! She may not be attending the Republican convention, but her shadow will hang over it somewhat. Right now, Sarah! and those of similar views are becoming the heart and soul of Republicanism. That is why she answered the question about a third way political party in the manner that she did. She sees the Tea Party fighting establishment Republicans (and establishment Democrats, too!), and she knows that they are making headway at least in one party. She will see how that works out in the coming years before any decision is made on a third way. I hope that her attempts on behalf of the common people like me are successful. The current Democrati party does not deserve the banner of supporting common people because they are a transparent fraud.

  22. And now we have the real reason why Agent Orange wrote his op ed just in time for the Republican convention. In his ongoing hissy fit, he needed to let everyone who has not been paying attention to his boobery that he now whores for the DemonRat party. Crist: Take that you rightwing Republicans! I am now out of the closet supporting the effete Democrats and their pantywaist leader. It’s not like being a RINO was any different than who I am now, but I want to embarrass my former party, and what better way to do so than to yuck it up with my alter ego Obama.

    The only problem for Crusty Cristy boy is that his op ed brings embarrassment to his own door as he lays his true self bare for all to see while he propagates Obama lies.

  23. All of your points and suggestions about dealing with Mathews and his ilk are spot, Wobbie. (RNC, TAKE NOTE!) Ari Fleischer would be great against Mathews and so would Sununu (as freespirit) suggested. (I’m not familiar with Bill Rusher.) Although Priebus was not on Mathews’ show this morning (but on Morning Joe) he was still in enemy territory with Mathews as one of the guests. But you’re right, the only reason to go on the Mathews Show would be to eviscerate him, figuratively speaking. One thing is for certain, his BO sycophancy, Leftist hipocrisy, and race-bating must be challenged and quashed where ever they manifest themselves.

  24. Sarah Palin’s 2008 convention speech was on C-Span last night. Now that’s how you get under BO’s skin! Hearing it again put a big smile on my face.


  25. Barack Obama has great plans for his second term: to bring his golf handicap down to single digits and finally beat the pants off John Boehner. Considering that Obama’s handicap right now is generously estimated at 17 — i.e., on a good day he scores in the upper 80s to the lower 90s — it is a very ambitious goal, but it’s doable. Electoral victory would obviate the need for Obama to waste a lot of time shaking down star-struck Hollywood stars and credulous (or frightened) Wall Street tycoons, allowing the president to devote more attention to the all-important tasks of improving his golf game, watching basketball, and partying.

    But won’t golf, basketball, and entertainment, while obviously consuming the lion’s share of the president’s schedule, leave him enough time for less enjoyable pursuits? Like building on his first-term successes in destroying the economy, undermining the American dream, and knocking America down a peg or two in the international arena. No problem. Obama loves to delegate the more tedious components of his duties (i.e., work), and plenty of his enthusiastic allies are only too happy to pick up the slack.

    Unfortunately, he will be speaking at the convention for the fraud, and yes, maybe he throws some underling zingers in there, but most people don’t get them. They are like the goons at the bar when matthews became unhinged, clapping like seals.

  27. Update: A bit of esprit d’escalier but better late than never – Reince Priebus: Let’s face it, Chris Matthews is a jerk and no one watches his show



    This bit from an I/E Republican/conservative at HotAir is also commendable:

    “Incidentally, Matthews isn’t the only reporter sputtering in indignation today about perceived racism in Romney’s welfare attacks. Thomas Edsall unfurled his piece bright and early this morning — coinciding with day one of the GOP convention, conveniently enough — and then the Atlantic followed suit later, replete with a photographic analysis accusing the RNC’s ad team of darkening Obama’s skin. (Obama supporters leveled that charge at Hillary’s ad team during the 2008 primaries too, back when she was a horrible racist and not a wonderful post-partisan feminist icon and diplomat.) My hunch is that there’s only one man in America who could get away with criticizing liberal welfare policies from the center-right without drawing a racism charge, but when I stop to think about that, I remember that that guy was also accused of racism repeatedly for opposing Obama in 2007 and early 2008. So, my hunch is wrong. This argument simply can’t be made. Oh well.”

    Hey Reince, take a look below at what we wanted you to say to Jabba the Hut.

    ——————————————————————————————

  28. (personal to wbboei)

    Early in 2008 I phoned you once or twice, long before May 31 or Heidi’s work (which I supported) re the Denver ballot. I’ve always supported everything Heidi did, and never criticized her.

    I do attack Obama often, here and elsewhere, calling him DINO, Fascist in Socialist’s clothing, corporate tool, corporatist, etc, and saying he cheated against Hillary and Alice Palmer, passes fake bills with no teeth like his Lily Ledbetter, was a decoy of Daley’s and now of the GOP to lead real protest down a blind alley, is incapable of religion other than egoism, does a lot of boobery, and cannot be trusted.

    I don’t waste choir bandwidth with long echoes of things other choir members are saying.

  29. Will Romney be nominated on Tuesday then, since the RNC’s Monday convention night has been effectively cancelled (except for officially opening the convention, I believe)?

  30. Sarah Palin is the real deal, and that is so threatening to party cabals who are trying to control individuals while Sarah! is trying to set them free! Stupid not!! She may not be attending the Republican convention, but her shadow will hang over it somewhat. Right now, Sarah! and those of similar views are becoming the heart and soul of Republicanism. That is why she answered the question about a third way political party in the manner that she did. She sees the Tea Party fighting establishment Republicans (and establishment Democrats, too!), and she knows that they are making headway at least in one party. She will see how that works out in the coming years before any decision is made on a third way.

    ====================

    She may not be attending the Republican convention, but her shadow will hang over it somewhat.

    Like Hillary not attending the Democratic convention! Got a lovely flash of the two of them sitting out having coffee together.

    If anyone could and would make a third party work, it would be Sarah. Uniting dropouts from both sides against crony capitalism.

    Imo what a third party could do, is get enough seats in the House, that they could be the swing factor between the Dems and the GOP on many issues (as in parliamentary systems). And if they do their homework within the existing rules of the Electoral College, they could put enough Tea Party electors on the ballot that they could decide the POTUS election if neither Dem nor GOP get a majority.

  31. Admin:

    1. The Obama campaign has launched a two front attack on Republicans: i) racism, and ii) war on women

    2. Obama has chosen Matthews as his surrogate to promote the first theme

    3. But Matthews happens to be the worst sexist on television and that undermines the second theme.

    4. The Republicans need to point out what this same Obama surrogate said about Hillary in the 2008 campaign:

    • I hate her. I hate her. All that she stands for.“ “She Devil“ • “Nurse Ratched•“ “Madame Defarge•“ “Witchy•“ “Anti-male•“ “[U]ppity•“ “She’s going to tell us what to •do.“ “Her scolding manner in terms of her public speaking•“ “[L]et’s talk about the troops …Will they take the orders?•“ [D]oesn’t she know she looks like a fraud?•“ Look at those eyes. Look at the cold eyes that she’s giving him. Look at that cold look.“ • [L]ike a strip-teaser saying she’s flattered by the all the attention On Sen. Clinton’s endorsers: “•“castratos in the eunuch chorus•“ “Let me tell you how short Hillary’s leash is. “•“ Is she a convincing mom? On Sen. Clinton’s laugh: “•“ What do you make of the cackle?•“ [S]he’s clapping, like she’s Chinese. I know the Chinese clap at each other, but what is she clapping at? I mean, it’s like one of these wind-up things. “•“ [S]he was giving a campaign barn-burner speech, which is harder to give for a woman; it can grate on some men when they listen to it — fingernails on a blackboard, perhaps.•“ “Is there, out there in the country or out in the Atlantic Ocean, some gigantic monster — big, green, horny-headed, all kinds of horns coming out, big, aggressive monster of anti-Hillaryism that hasn’t shown itself: it’s based upon gender …•“ “[B]eing surrounded by women, does that make a case for commander in chief — or does it make a case against it?•“ “Is she hemmed in by the fact that she’s a woman and can’t admit a mistake, or else the Republicans will say, ‘Oh, that’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind,’ or ‘another fickle woman’? Is her gender a problem in her ability to change her mind?•“ “[T]he reason she’s a U.S. senator, the reason she’s a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around.•“ “She may have gotten The Des Moines Register’s endorsement the other day, thanks to her husband’s lobbying with its female editors

    5. Since Matthews is an Obama surrogate, these statements should be imputed to Obama. And then, his war on women meme will be seen for what it is: a desperate distraction by a losing campaign.

  32. hm. hey repubs, might want to keep the crazies in your party away from the spotlight, until November at least.

    Pat Robertson Warns People Against Adopting Scary Foreign Kids: ‘You Don’t Know What Problems There Are’ (VIDEO)

    What an idiot!

  33. Apparently “war on women” doesn’t apply when its done to a dem woman, aka Hillary 2008. Or even a repub candidate aka Palin 2008 and beyond.

  34. They keep having wing nuts saying outrageous things which hurts Romney and
    changes the issue. It’s incredible.

  35. Chris Matthews, I’m convinced he’s on drugs, crazy man drugs. What is amazing to me is that that idiot Tom Browkaw is sitting right there along with Matthews as he does his crazy rant, apparently Tom Brokaw no longer cares to pretend to be a real journalist.

    well, at least Robertson is already seen in that crazy light, so at least its not a Todd Akin type thing.

  37. 5. Since Matthews is an Obama surrogate, these statements should be imputed to Obama. And then, his war on women meme will be seen for what it is: a desperate distraction by a losing campaign.

    ===================

    Pls note that GOP figures have been insulting Hillary nationwide since 1992. As well as investigating her finances, her ‘Travelgate’, her ‘Renting the Lincoln Bedroom’, accusing her of murder of Vince Foster, etc etc.

    As well as current GOP legislators passing actual laws affecting ALL women in very practical ways (eg ‘pregnancy starts before conception’).

  38. No one denies that the GOP is not women friendly. At least we know it as opposed to
    the democratic party who pretends to be pro women, but at the moment of truth, picked
    a man over a better qualified woman in 2008.

  39. Both parties have problem with women, one just pretends its for women, while shoving a very qualified woman side when its politically convinient for them

  40. http://hotair.com/archives/2012/08/27/newt-to-chris-matthews-your-thinking-can-be-pretty-racist-you-know/

    Via News Busters, you’ll enjoy watching Matthews being given a taste of his own medicine but this clip is more useful as a demonstration of why it’s pointless for the two sides to talk to each other. The problem isn’t that Tingles is willing to presume racism; the problem is that his presumption is irrebuttable, with subconscious racism the inevitable fallback presumption in cases like these when the accused protests vehemently enough. You’re guilty, even if you don’t know it. What possible good can a conversation with those parameters do except to provide a lazy blogger like me with easy content on a slow news night? It’d be more dignified for both of them if Gingrich just got up and left. Cede the airtime to some liberal guest who can come on and tell Matthews what he wants to hear. That’s not a useful conversation either, but at least both participants would respect the other’s good faith and sincerity. I’d prefer that to Dog-Whistle Theater.

  41. The suggested responses here are better than these.

    The Top Ten responses

    Reince Priebus should have offered to Chris Matthews when he accused the GOP of playing the “race card”:

    10. I’m sorry…your name again is…?

    9. Security! This fellow says he has a show but nobody here has ever heard of it!

    8. I think that tingle has moved up to your brain, Chris.

    7. No decaf in the green room again, eh?

    6. Curses, foiled again.

    5. Yes, Chris, after the vice president caught us trying to re-enslave African-Americans with banking de-regulation, we thought we needed to move on to something subtler. Bwoo-hah-ha!

    4. The Village Idiot Convention called. They’re missing one.

    3. Are there questions in your diatribe or am I supposed to just listen and nod my head slavishly? Oops, caught me again…playing the “race card.”

    2. Three words: anger management therapy.

    And…the Number One Response

    Reince Priebus should have offered to Chris Matthews when he accused the GOP of playing the “race card”:

    1. I assume your bosses, desperate to try to grow your measly audience, have given you this morning guest slot to attract viewers to your little-watched afternoon show. But I won’t play punching bag to your rhetorical bullying, Mr. Matthews, in their attempt to save your neck. When they finally give up on you, I’ve heard Al Gore is hiring.

    Could these Obots in the MSM get anymore obvious and pathetic? Will SeeBS ask OTurd: “I wonder how you would explain this “democratic” party to your dem precessors, like Truman and JFK?”

    I think not.

  43. Both parties have problem with women, one just pretends its for women [….]

    ==================

    Which means they have to throw us some bones occasionally, and oppose some of the GOP bills that would keep us ALL barefoot and pregnant.

  44. I am no fan of Newt, but I have to give him props for being the one to call out Matthews’ brand of racist remarks.

    That said, I am sick of this whole “I shouted you down therefore I win” mentality with all these talk show folks. What part of “guest” do they not understand? I would hate to be invited to any of their homes for dinner.

    Hi, tim. Do you have a link?

  46. This is great. Here is the ad:


    One small problem. They aren’t Republican women.

    “That ad, posted on the official Barack Obama campaign YouTube page on Friday, claimed to show a group of women that had previously voted Republican but later abandoned the party because they felt it went too far to the right, leaving them no alternative but to vote for President Barack Obama this November.

    The problem is, so far two of these women have been shown to be Democrats who had previously supported Obama.”

    Is it too late for Democrats to replace BarackObama? http://www.bob-owens.com/2012/08/is-it-too-late-for-democrats-to-replace-obama/

    At this point, a rational political party would realize that their current candidate cannot be elected, and that promoting a failed candidate and failed policies will only ensure the decline of their party.

    We’ve already heard claims that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton passed on an offer to replace “Slow Joe” Biden on the bottom half of the Democratic ticket, but the more rational solution for Democrats would be to replace Obama with Clinton as their Presidential nominee.

    Unlike the irreparably damaged Obama brand, the Clinton brand is a strong or stronger than ever. Many Americans over the age of 40 remember Hillary’s “co-presidency” with Bill Clinton and the far more rosy economics of that era, and could be persuaded to revisit those days with Hillary are the shot-caller and Bill being her charismatic “First Husband.” The two are still a formidable power within the Democratic establishment, and Hillary is already all but assured of amassing a significant war chest from disheartened and deep-pocketed Democratic donors if she stepped in to save the Party’s 2012 chances from a nearly inevitable Obama Defeat.

    The Democratic Party desperately needs a coup in Charlotte, and conveniently for Democrats, North Carolina already has a history of successful Democratic insurrections.

    By Barack Obama, Stargazer-in-Chief

    When I learned of the untimely passing of Neil Armstrong I was, like all Americans, deeply moved and saddened. I share your sense of loss for this American hero, even if his fame had been eclipsed by others over the years. But in our shared moment of grief, let us also celebrate his historic accomplishment in becoming the first astronaut eulogized by me, Barack Obama, our nation’s historic first African-American president. [snip]

    For one thing, it inspired me to venture off on a historic twilight photo mission in a Maryland cabbage field. There I stood, gazing into the night sky, providing a dramatic backlit silhouette of inspiration for generations of future space explorers. In the centuries to come, space fans around the world will look to this indelible dorm poster image of Barack Obama, representing humankind’s enduring pioneering spirit of exploration, and be spurred to dream their impossible dreams of Obama-like accomplishment. [snip]

    Has my example served as an inspiration to the faraway aliens to work for their own extraterrestrial hope and change?

    It was a moment that drove home to me just how significant I am in the grand scheme of things. As a result, I returned to the Oval Office with a renewed spirit to push the envelope, to strike out into the unknown, whether it be the vast expanses of space or the 2013 federal debt ceiling.

    Soon Palin will be calling them “Hopium Guzzlers”.

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0812/80240.html?hp=r6

    Sarah Palin: Dems addicted to ‘hope-ium’

    Sarah Palin on Monday said Democrats who “still have that addiction to the hope-ium” President Barack Obama peddled four years ago need to “open their eyes” and vote for Mitt Romney this November.

    “Some of us had [Obama] pegged four years ago. Remember when he promised to fundamentally transform America? We knew right then during the campaign that we were in for a world of hurt under Obama’s failed liberal socialist policies that he would really ram down our throats,” Palin told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday night. “So nothing comes as a surprise to me when I hear the tone that President Obama is taking in his campaign.”

    Hannity then asked Palin for her thoughts on how Obama can continue to have supporters in 2012 after what they agreed were four failed years in office. “What is this, stubborn Obama-Mania? A stubborn, hypnotic trance?” Hannity asked.

    These people who still have that addiction to the hope-ium that he had promised, that hope-y, change-y stuff that was really bogus four years ago,” Palin said, “well they have about 71 days to open up their eyes and realize the path that he has put us on, a path toward insolvency, a path toward fewer freedoms and, really, orchestrated chaos and bankruptcy.”

    This will be awesome!!!!
    plazahttp://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/08/tea-party-patriots-to-salute-to-us-military-with-exciting-event-today-at-tampas-liberty-plaza/

  61. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/dnc-announces-2-hour-islamic-jumah-prayers-after-rejecting-cardinals-blessing-and-you-wont-believe-whos-invited/#

    Watch the promotional video, via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which is partnering with the DNC for the event.

    The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably:

    Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend the Friday prayers and Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said the purpose of the event is to hold political parties accountable for the issues faced by Muslim-Americans.

    In particular, the event will target the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment.

    And while Muslim-Americans undeniably face distinct challenges, those who are well-informed on the dangers of radical Islam are expressing their doubts about the event.

    Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, wrote:

    The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj [are not] moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

    A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

    […]

    Their jummah (group) prayer is…about empowering their Islamist and MB sympathetic groups into the very fabric of the political system so that Americans become anesthetized. We need American Muslims to speak up and marginalize these radicals. The DNC needs to understand and reject them because of their radical history and ideas.

    The mosque of Jibril Hough, mentioned by Dr. Jasser, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust, which was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial as one of the entities “who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

    Siraj Wahhaj, the “Grand Imam” for Jumah at the DNC, is often considered a “moderate” because he was the first Muslim to give an invocation in the U.S. Congress, but as Robert Spencer notes, he has a number of troubling ties to dangerous radicals. In the early 1990′s the man reportedly sponsored talks by “the Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman in New York and New Jersey mosques, and told his followers that the United States will fall unless it “accepts the Islamic agenda.”

    Wahhaj elaborated, according to bestselling author Brigitte Gabriel, to say: “If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.”

    He continued: “Take my word. If 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”

    When an imam like Siraj Wahhaj says “it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran…we need to speak up!” Dr. Jasser reiterated in response, adding that Americans “should be concerned” if this is who the DNC is “consorting with.”

  62. The vagueness of the short video may explain why Bill Clinton needed to be so heavily edited into short takes – cut, cut, cut.

    Bill Clinton is a mesmerist with political yarn-telling. The outtakes may show that Bill Clinton added substance and interpretation and cunning illustrations.

    Instead what is left are lobbed well-wishes: “We need to keep goin’ with his plan.” What plan is that, Mr.Clinton? Does Bill Clinton know?

    The light in Bill Clinton’s eye is as dull as the script. It is true that a majority of American voters have a positive opinion of Mr. Clinton, however this is not about Bill Clinton’s favorability.

  63. When the Supreme Court ruled on the landmark Citizen United case in 2010, the landscape of presidential elections shifted. SuperPACs — entities that can’t make direct contributions but are allowed to engage in limitless spending and fundraising independently of the campaigns — have allowed for the some of the largest indirect gifts by wealthy Americans in the nation’s history.

    Obama is on record as opposing superPACs for normalizing gigantic donations, but his campaign has hesitantly decided to accept donations from these outside groups.

    In this week’s New Yorker article “Schmooze or Lose,” Jane Mayer details how this new electoral climate has negatively affected the Obama campaign’s appeal to Democratic donors — and the election at large.
