CNN knows the Clintons own these two. It is hysterical they are made to muzzle them.

I don’t see how this helps Obama.

CNN has told top Dem strategists James Carville, Paul Begala, and Robert Zimmerman -- who are CNN mainstays but are all Hillary supporters -- that they will not be doing any more political analysis on the network until the Democratic primary has reached a conclusion.
Anyone see the hypocrisy in this?
These two Democrat partisans are only being banned until the Democrat primary is settled, rather than the entire 2008 election.
Apparently pimping for one Democrat over another during the Democrat primary is off-limits on CNN, but not pimping for Democrats over Republicans in the general election.

Carville is back on Hillary’s payroll from what I hear. How can he act as an analyst without bias?

Bagala may be in the same boat.

I’m just surprised CNN will act on this matter. They’ve been in bed with the Clinton’s more times than any other broad has been.

Great point!

The thing about going to bed with Bill Clinton is the women generally don’t repeat that mistake.

I may have to crossover for Obama right now. If he can shut Carville up for four years, he could get my vote. Hubby says, “He is showing himself to be a formiddable candidate.” This is high praise.

CNN is in bed with whoever CNN believes has the best chances of furthering the neo-communist, anti-American agenda.

Yeah, these two assho!es get plenty of praise from the MSM and I've often wondered why. Krintong got 43% of the vote in '92 and 48% in '96, hardly what could be deemed overwhelming.

Seems to me no Perot, no Clinton...and frankly I think the same holds true this time around. Hillary loses without third-party candidate help.

If Edwards had made the same request, CNN would have laughed in his face. But CNN will do whatever Obama wants because Obama is black, and to deny his request - - any request - - would be racist.

I wouldn’t do it. If he’s their guy the general election will focus 100% on Islam. The philosophical tenants will be thoroughly discussed involving the idea that being born to a Muslim fathered family automatically makes descendants a muslim. They are born into the slavery and there’s no debate. So he’s a muslim apostate and all that comes it. That’ll be the entire election focus. Should be fun.

Up to this point the powers that be have pretty much held this card. But it’s there and all it takes is for the press to pick up on it. He’s a muslim and he hasn’t addressed directly his apostate status. I’d love to have a true apostate telling the rest of the muslim world you aren’t automatically a muslim because you are born into a muslim household. See that’s the whole argument,everything. In the west you have choice and in the muslim word you’re fate is decided before you are born. To act in any way contrary to this fate is to be blasphemous to your maker. That make you a criminal in Muslim society.

Whatever.

As the wheels come off the economy the truth will become obvious.

Romney is our anointed savior.

If Hillary gets the nod will they still be banned, or will they be brought back to trash the Republican candidate? Rhetorical question of course.

If there is a reason to ban them now, why does it stop after the primaries are over? Yea, I know why.

This just plays into Billary’s victim status basso continuo.

As soon as Billary is nominated, the Forehead/ Snakehead will be back on the Clinton News Network eviscerating the GOP nominee.

“I still say that’s Hillary.”

The pretend black family is up against a real black family. Race trumps sex in the Victim of the White Oppressorman hierarchy.

Both are known loyals to the Party Approved Rhetoric. This is why Ms. Rice (pulls both major trumps, race and sex) would be torn apart by those who belong to the Thought Boss structure of compliant peasantry. She’s not loyal to the narrative as directed by those designated as elite.

I was not serious about crossing over. We do not have open primaries, and it’s too late to change parties. I wouldn’t vote for any of the RATS in the general election. Nor would hubby.

Nonsense. How many voters still adhere to the religion of their fathers or grandfathers?

If CNN bans Carville and Begalla temporarily, should FOX not ban or limit appearances of Geraldo who is endorsing McCain?

I don’t support Rice for higher office, but it would be an incredibly interesting dynamic the press and the leftists going after a black woman. It certainly be enlightening to certain groups in our nation. Still, they’d probably condemn here as an ‘oreo’ black, and trash her with a passion you and I couldn’t imagine.

I agree that they’d rip her to shreds in a feral frenzy. I also agree with not supporting her for higher office.

I have an innate distrust of anyone brought up through the policy process during the Cold War. Too much built in willingness to compromise was mandatory for political survival in that time.

There is so little of worth for comparison between our long standoff with the Soviet and our current fight for survival that those brought up under the former are starting off chock full of misconceptions and incompetencies for the current.

There are several things that worry me about Rice. What bothered you didn’t occur to me. I’m not sure I agree, but I don’t have a burden not to either. You may be right.

Rice received her degree from Stanford. While that may be a good university for science matters, I’m not convinced it is a great one for international affairs. In fact, I’m not convinced we have a good international affairs department in the nation at this time.

Leftist ideologues own our universities, populating them by something like 9 to 1. In that environment, what can we expect but people who have been indoctrinated into the leftist cabal?

Then Rice has evidenced her willingness to play along with blaming Israel first and buying into a peace process that could only be best described as suicide by the numbers.

I do think she is a bright woman. I do not think she has a clue on some issues.

I think you missed my point. What I am saying is tradition is very clear on this. The father determines the children’s faith in the ME and the rest of the muslim dominated countries. In the west we adopt the wife’s religion more often than not. The differences are obvious. In Darfur you see the method at is basest. The rebels raid and overtake e non-muslims. With their wives chanting in the background the conquering Sudanese muslim males rape every female with his muslim seed. Every child born is automatically muslim. The woman was simply the conveyance system. That territory officially becomes pacified with blood.

So B Obama is born into a conundrum not of his control because his father was a muslim, devote one at that. Barry’s religion was pre-ordained. He’s a muslim by their standards and he just needs to be punished and brought back to the faith or killed if he refuses.

I think you overstate the case.

In the USA, we are free to choose our religion. Barak Obama has chosen Christianity. Good for him.

Who cares what the Muslims think?

Obama will have to have a super alert SS team when and if he gets elected, however. There will be many unhappy Islamic nuts trying to take him out.

Which brings me to the idea that he is a verycourageous man to run for President of the USA.
