Imagine the media outrage if a conservative commentator listed states where Barack Obama would be hunted down with dogs.
On CNN's OutFront Friday, liberal contributor Paul Begala said, "When Bush Sr. carried Pennsylvania, he also carried California and Illinois and New Jersey, places where they would hunt Romney down with dogs" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
PAUL BEGALA: It's a tough race. It's a tough year. Come on, [Obama's] not going to win Pennsylvania by ten or eleven or thirteen or whatever he won by last time. You know, Reihan might be right, but he's not. This is a bad move for Romney. It's going to disappoint frankly all those people who were counting on him in places where he actually might have a chance like Iowa, Colorado, Florida. Pennsylvania has not gone for a Republican for president since Reagan and Bush, and when - Bush Sr., not Bush Jr. - when Bush Sr. carried Pennsylvania, he also carried California and Illinois and New Jersey - places where they would hunt Romney down with dogs.
If a conservative commentator said something like this about Obama, that would be the end of his career.
Will Begala take any heat for this disgusting comment?
Begala is nothing but a two bit political hack who could never get a REAL job.
Funny how they quickly forget where Romney was governor of.
They trying to claw up to where MSDNC is in the ratings?
Another classy lib.
Another Democrat s**tbird.
Hey forehead! Show up to my part of California and see
who gets a hunk of tri-tip strapped around his neck and
sent screaming off into the woods.
Who are Bush Sr. and Bush Jr.?
Democrats get a warm, old-timey feeling when they think about hunting men down with dogs.
this is simply a test of my keyboard and it appears to be working..! bluetooth keyboard on my phone in Starbucks, cool..! ^_^
I am from California, and in most parts of the state (area wise) where people would know how to hunt anything down with dogs they would like Mitt Romney just fine. In the areas where they might not like Mitt Romney, those folks wouldn’t know how to hunt anything down with a dog if their life depended on it.
what a horrible misuse of dogs.
Begala (and Ed Schulz, Keith Olbermann, Chrissy Matthews and Martin Bashir) are the main reasons I’m uppin my contribution to help the Mentally Ill.
If anyone ever needed mental health help, it is this crew.
I like what Glenn Beck is doing. He's forming his own network. I would like his station to be the News Source of Record for Conservatives, especially if FoxNews keeps lurching leftward.
Oh well. Guess Brent's gotta earn a living, and it sure beats working.
Why is it that the Left can have guys making this level of offensive comment, and it is just deemed funny, or colorful, or completely acceptable?
We know why. Why do we stand for it. Our side should make a national stink out of it and not let up until he’s ruined.
Dogs!Real men don’t need dogs.
All places a dog would squat and poop on.
Im in Illinois. I have no illusions about who will win, but those of us downstate don’t vote the same as they do in Obamaland. That said, Illinois waits for the downstate votes to see how many votes Cook and Dupage need to win. A couple of cemetary visits, pass out some smokes and Night Train to some street dwellers and Voila, Chicago counties overcome the downstate red vote. Quite miraculous, actually..
