This conversation took place just after Obama was elected:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah, well, you know what? I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work, and I think that –
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is that your job? You just talked about being a journalist!
MATTHEWS: Yeah, it is my job. My job is to help this country.
SCARBOROUGH: Your job is the make this presidency work?
MATTHEWS: To make this work successfully. This country needs a successful presidency.
That kind of attitude prevailed throughout THE ONE’s candidacy.
The MSM is still hard at work sticking up for their boy Obama.
From the ever sycophantic New York Times:
The Acorn controversy came a week after the resignation of Van Jones, a White House environmental official attacked by conservatives, led by Glenn Beck of Fox News Channel, for once signing a petition suggesting that Bush administration officials might have deliberately permitted the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Even before Mr. Jones stepped down, Mr. Beck had sent a message to supporters on Twitter urging them to “find everything you can” on three other Obama appointees.
Conservatives believe that they have hit upon a winning formula for such attacks: mobilizing people to dig up dirt, trumpeting it on talk radio and television, prompting Congress to weigh in and demanding action from the Obama administration.
Winning formula…like #12 of Saul Alinky’s Rules for Radicals. Leftwingnuts hate it when their own tactics are flung back at them.
ABC’s Charles Gibson sniffed that the ACORN story “is just one you leave to the cables”. Liberal effete ABC World News Exec Jon Banner, spat:
“There’s a tremendous amount of – for lack of a better word – ‘noise’ out there. We’re not in the business of noise.”
Let’s see, Obama’s bullshit is “news”, the voice of the people is “noise”. They don’t even bother to hide the bias anymore.
Conservative bloggers have been writing about ACORN’s corruption for awhile now. It wasn’t until James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles turned the lights on with their undercover videos, that the Democrat cockroaches scattered away from ACORN.
Wanna know why the New York Times didn’t cover the Van Jones scandal?
Why? One reason was that our Washington bureau was somewhat short-staffed during the height of the pre-Labor Day vacation period. This is not an excuse. Another is that despite being a so-called “czar,” Mr. Jones was not a high-ranking official. Nevertheless, we should have been paying closer attention.
The Old Gray Lady has about 1300 people in its newsroom staff. Maybe they’re too busy typing their little fingers to the nubs providing stories that cover for their beloved messiah.
It’s easier for the MSM to manipulate socialist healthcare and foreign policy fuck-ups into a pro-Obama package, rather than deal with stories that expose his radical, criminal friends.
They all but ignore the dissent of thousands of Americans at townhalls and Tea Party protests, except to dismiss us with insults and epithets.
The hacks at the WaPo say we’re ‘confused’ and ‘racist’:
On Saturday, tens of thousands of protesters thronged to the U.S. Capitol to angrily accuse President Obama of taking the country in the wrong direction. A day later, in the shadow of the Washington Monument, many participants at a much smaller gathering — the 24th annual Black Family Reunion — said the level of hostility toward the nation’s first African American president had little to do with policy differences over health care or taxes and everything to do with race.
“It’ s not conducive to the coalitions we need to build in this country,” said Vera Hope, 60, of Mount Rainier as she left a booth promoting health prevention. “I’m disgusted and upset by the hostility. Let’s call it was it is — it’s just a disguise for right-wing racists. They are fomenting a climate of violence to provoke people.”
Maureen Dowd, the quintessential assclown at the WaPo, says criticism of Obama is all about the ‘racism’:
“Some people just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it”….Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t. But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!
Leftards like Dowd just can’t get it through their thick skulls that it doesn’t matter what skin color a nihilist adorns; they’re still a danger to our democratic republic and we will not allow them to destroy it.
And besides, race baiting is the usual M.O. for silencing opponents.
Newsflash, Dowd. It’s not going to work anymore. Rassmusen just conducted a poll and found that:
Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters nationwide now oppose the health care reform proposed by Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the highest level of opposition yet measured and includes 44% who are Strongly Opposed.
Just 43% now favor the proposal, including 24% who Strongly Favor it.
Gawd, imagine that; 56% of the American people are now classified as “racist” because they oppose the shitty policies of a black socialist.
Queen Nancy thinks Americans who indulge in the First Amendment are downright ‘scary’:
At her weekly news conference, Pelosi (D-Calif.) was asked if she was concerned about whether the debate over healthcare and the role of the federal government — much of it wrapped in escalating anti-government rhetoric — could lead to acts of violence.
“I think we all have to take responsibility for our actions and our words. We are a free country and this balance between freedom and safety is one that we have to carefully balance,” Pelosi began.
But she then reached back some 30 years, to the very beginning of her career in politics, to recall how heated rhetoric led to the assassinations of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk by a disgruntled former supervisor on Nov. 27, 1978.
“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw … I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco,” Pelosi said, choking up and with tears forming in her eyes. “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and … I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.”
Apparently, the violent rhetoric and actions of the anti-Bush crowd, and more recently, the SEIU, and didn’t cause enough concern for Nancy to get choked up. Newsflash Nancy, it’s all about being held accountable, which is a relatively new concept for you Democrats. People are fed up with the arrogance, the leftwing bullshit, and ram-rod legislation that elected officials don’t even bother to read. Get used to it.
Keep it up you leftwing fucktards. The more you show your ass, the more the pissed off the American people will be.
