Yaba, Daba, Dooooo!!!!
Mitch Daniels doing his VP audition, and he didn’t even wear a tie.
I just can’t believe it, the Daniels interview on FNC is Must-See-TV!
Large sections of this interview should be used in a GOP national TV ad campaign to take down the SEIU and teacher’s unions.
Gov. Mitch Daniels, R-Ind. comes across a folksy
knowledgable, principled, conservative.
RomneyPIMP Chris Wallace attacks him over and
over. Although Wallace has meticulously IGNORED
Romney's imposition of RomneyCARE upon
Massachsetts (and the US since it was in part federally
funded) , Wallace wants Daniels "to take a look"
at what he did in his state to raise costs.
Wow. FOX's Wallace's long-standing selective myopia
has given way to a new bias FOR the DNC/SEIU.
Romney-PIMP Wallace gets to the IMPORTANT point
at the end: RINO Romney.
Wallace wants Daniels to defend Romney from
an Obama ad. Wisely, Gov. Daniels focuses on the
real issue, so Wallace grabs the floor to push TARP
FOX's Anchor wife in Training explains that
Romney needs to have a bold liberal agenda,
rather than being an "antiObama".
Yes, indeedy. Obama and Romney on the same
side, with bold new agenda coming from Romney
who gave America gay marriage, RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE,
and more already.
America has gotten its klaxxon from FOX today.
Hang on to your hats and wallets.
Union hacks on FNS say corporate America puts too much into elections. Hmmm... the union is one of the largest campaign contributors, if not the largest, and over 95% of their contributions goes to Democrats.
Good morning, Alas.
I know it’s not your fault but, omigosh, the French open looks like the best show this morning.
I just watched Mitch Daniels. He was not inspiring. He’s a good guy and all that, but there is more passion in a hand puppet.
I think he made a mistake is his farm-boy goes to meeting blue denim button down shirt. It made him look less professional than the properly dressed (but clueless) Chris Matthews.
If Mitt Romney was watching, I’m guessing he drew a big ‘no’ line through Daniels as a veep candidate.
And I know Chris thinks it’s his job to be confrontive on the show (especially it seems with Republicans) but could he have been more thorough with the dem talking points.
Daniels refuted them all but very passively.
And the rest of the shows look tepid at best, but I’m sure there will interesting comments on this thread.
Thea Lee, AFLCIO: Solution, raise taxes on the rich.
Wallace IS taking it to Lee and van Roekel regarding union benefits and wages.
van Roekel decries that corporate management gets so much money, while the workers get peanuts.
It is quite evident that neither Lee nor van Roekel understand the concept of the free market and wealth creation.
They espouse the same ole lines of class warfare — ‘the rich are getting richer and we want a lot of that new enrichment’.
Those two seem to be clueless that it is the rich who creates jobs by creating and building businesses.
Male-panelist-not-Kristol tries to provide some cover for Team Obama, as he wonders whether the Admin tried to get the MSM to NOT publish the various leak-related materials.
[Why would they? They were the ones doing the leaking to prop up Obama.]
Liaison says that, if the MSM held back any info, then they must have even greater bombshells; thus, she doesn’t think they held back anything. [Twisted rationalization.]
Kristol says that SecDef Gates went to the NSA office and told them to ‘STFU’ regarding classified info.
Male-panelist wants to give independent investigation/investigator time to find out what when on. [Hoping such investigation would find nothing or extend beyond the election?]
LCheney says that, IF the Prez authorized, the American people have a right to know. [Considering all the Washington stonewalling on Fast & Furious, that won’t happen, Liz.]
This month, the White House was exposed leaking critically sensitive
classified national security information materials
to try to reelect the Undocument pRes_ _ent
(with at least 4 or 5 separate damaging leaks).
Years ago, this would be treason.
Today, there is a yawn.
Bill Kristol - This is "very damaging".
Bipartisan outrage is noted.
Calls it the"worse" he has ever seen,
paraphrasing with attribution Diane Feinstein.
Charles Lane - "This is important for the public to know about."
He minimizes the treason and impacts.
He also says further investigations must not continue,
as he lauds the present investigators.
He says, "Releasing classified information is not a crime".
RomneyPIMP Chris Wallace interrupts Lane the first time he speaks
to defend Obama claiming the WH tried
to withhold information on the Stuxnet virus info release.
Liz Cheney was amazed by involvement of National Security aides.
She wants to know if there was direct pRes_ _ential
authorization, or simply acquiescence (and why).
This is "a betrayal to the Nation".
She wants an independent investigation.
Mara Liason notes it was "orchestrated" from the White House.
Conclusion: The antiAmerican pRes_ _ent is involved,
and Wallace/FOX and Lane appear to know more about the treason
and its coverup than they are saying.
clip: Obama says he has created 4.5 million jobs during the first 27 weeks of his Admin.
Okay, but that equates to about 39,000 new jobs per week, while unemployment raged at nearly 500,000 per WEEK for half that 27 weeks and currently running around 380,000 per WEEK currently.
His number of news jobs sounds great as a cumulative number, but the number getting WEEKLY unemployment is running at 5.97 million, and that does NOT include all those who exhausted benefits.
Obama 4.5 million new jobs means about 1 new job for every 10 jobs lost.
I always snicker each summer when the French Open pre-empts the French-speaking David Gregory’s Meet the Press.
Face The Nation going all out to remind us rubes that Nixon and Watergate comprised the “worst, most illegal administration the country has ever known”.
O'Malley keeps repeating the comment that Scott Walker has not been indicted yet. Does O'Malley know something that he is hiding, or is he just a sleazy dirtball professional lifer politician who gets a pass because is a D?
Trumka delivered a non-performance, but he can repeat talking points well and does not stutter, stammer or say, "Uh", "Eh", or "Um". Back to Mitch Daniels, he did a lot more of that than I expected. He needs to improve in that area or he will remind voters of Barry Obama, the "Eh, Uh, Um" King of the Podium. (Or does the teleprompter say, "Eh, Uh, Um"?)
First thing I noticed about Woodward/Bernstein: Bernstein kept talking about the larger conspiracy of the Nixon administration, but never the actual results; Nixon won 49 states in the 1972 election. Without all the valuable secrets secured by the Watergate break-in, Nixon may have only won 48, or maybe 45 states.
And nobody died as a result of Watergate. On the other hand the Gulf of Tonkin incident and resolution led to how many American deaths? Not a word about that from Carl B.
But Carl did talk about Johnson anyway; he said that one of the tapes Nixon talked about doing another break-in and stealing some tapes that would incriminate Lyndon Johnson about something. What, we will apparently never know, because Bernstein, Woodard and everybody else just never bothered to look. Maybe some day Geraldo will look into it, after he gets over the Capone vault thing.
A main meme is that Pubbies want the economy to fail and "won't pass their own legislation". Huck and Ann are holding up well.
