Jake Tapper is in Big, Big Trouble (ABC's World News Tonight reported the Truth!)
Rushlimbaugh.com ^ | March 9, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Jacob Tapper, our old buddy. Jake Tapper, ABC News. He may be in trouble today, folks, 'cause all the good graces he found himself in the way he reported on me this week, he's now stepped in it. Last night on ABC's World News Tonight, he happened to report the truth. There was a new Obama reelection campaign documentary out there, The Road We Traveled, it's a film directed by An Inconvenient Truth director Davis Guggenheim, and this Guggenheim guy, by the way, has said in all of his investigating he can't find one thing wrong with Obama. He's a perfect human being. I kid you not. Obama is perfect. He told this to Piers Morgan on CNN. The only thing he could find that Obama had failed at was persuading more people to abandon their own political point of view and agree with him. He couldn't find anything wrong, a perfect individual. So Tapper is reporting on this documentary, and Tom Hanks is in here. I guess Jacob Tapper is basically reviewing it.

TAPPER: The inconvenient truth for President Obama is that with a current approval rating at below 50%, his odds of reelection are likelier if he makes the election not about him.

HANKS: Do we look at the day's headlines, or do we remember what we, as a country, have been through?

TAPPER: The unemployment rate when President Obama took office was 7.8%. It went up to 10%, and is now 8.3%. Gas prices when the president took office averaged $1.84 a gallon. It's now $3.79 a gallon. And home values have gone down since the president took office.

RUSH: I don't believe this.

TAPPER: There have been more than 2.8 million foreclosures under his watch. President Obama has his work cut out for him with the Democratic base. Compared to four years ago, Diane, Democrats are deflated and Republicans are much more enthusiastic about voting this November.

RUSH: I don't know how Jake Tapper has a job today: You don't hear this kind of stuff from the Drive-By Media. Well, some people you do now and then just to create the illusion they are somewhat objective sometimes, but this is right-on-the-money true. All of these economic statistics are true. The report on voter enthusiasm, Republicans far more enthusiastic than Democrats, true. This documentary by the Guggenheim guy, Goebbels would not allow this one out. Goebbels woulda not allowed this one out. Putin wouldn't let this one out. This is so one-sided that everybody rolls their eyes at it. And Jake Tapper says the inconvenient truth for Obama is that with a current approval rating below 50% his odds of reelection are likelier if he makes the election not about him. And that's what he's not going to be able to do. The election will be about him, and that's where the enthusiasm on our side will come from, the election being about him. Don't doubt me on this.

And there are 2,000,000 fewer jobs than when he took office.

A rare and random act of journalism - rare as hens’ teeth.

Tapper doesn’t quite seem to fit in at ABC News - he seems to actually have some journalistic standards.

by sheer coincidence...I recently rejoined twitter a few weeks ago (tried it a few years ago & it bored me).
This time around - I’ve found it very fascinating to follow all these columists and reporters.
You get to see their conversations & back’n’forth dialogue with their colleagues.

Anyways...this #vettheprez topic has really taken off.
Tapper gets needled periodically and I noticed him bristling at the insinuation he isn’t objective.

I think these reporters are becoming more aware of how the public perceives their bias.

Thats interesting. I’ve tried Twitter, too, and thought it wasn’t for me. Maybe I’ll check it out again.

And Tapper could have added that the President has added about 6 trillion to the debt.

FOX is not the Conservative voice it once was. They’ve been in the tank for RINO-Rom for months; thanks to political whores like Ann Coulter that they keep having on their network.

Thanks for the ping.

I would not be surprised if Tapper is going to be canned from ABC and White House Press

Tapper is just a good journalist... what journalists should be. ABC chose well to put him on This Week, and screwed up when they took him off.

thanks! It’s embarrassing how much time I’ve wasted there the last few days.
It’s been so much fun to read this past week.

By November I’ll be a legal resident,and registered voter,of New Hampshire.My vote would mean nothing in Massachusetts but NH is a swing state and,as a result,I’ll be willing to crawl over broken glass to get to the polls.My vote might actually mean something for once in my life.

It does make me wonder about her...how can someone who is against abortion and that late term abortion which she is overlook something so important. It does not make sense to me at all. And worse than that voting for a man who stands for infantaside as he did as an IL senator.
