Paul Begala: 'California, Illinois and New Jersey - Places Where They'd Hunt Romney Down With Dogs'
Newsbusters ^ | 11/2/12 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 11/02/2012 7:47:47 PM PDT by markomalley

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?

Stay tuned.

This ugly little man is just looking for attention. He’s a has-been who should be laughed into oblivion for his inflamatory tongue.

Hey forehead! Show up to my part of California and see

sent screaming off into the woods.

Democrats get a warm, old-timey feeling when they think about hunting men down with dogs.

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.

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.

Maybe it's just me, but Newsbusters and Brent Bozell sound like a bunch of whineybabies. We know the old mainstream media is biased towards Regressives. We know they want an Islamic/Marxist coalition to take over our country to satisfy their bloodlust, errrr, "Proletariat Utopia".

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.

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..

I’m a Californian too, and you are spot on. Just show me any large congregation of people(i.e. a city) and I will show you a RAT’s nest. The RAT’s can have LA, but I would like to reclaim the city of my birth (San Francisco) from the queers!

I don’t know about the other state mentioned but the liberals in California won’t know a good hunting dog if they saw it, and wouldn’t know what to do with it if they had one.

"Yes, …tens of millions of good people in Middle America voted Republican. But if you look closely at that map (red marked Bush) you see a more complex picture. You see the state where James Byrd was lynch-dragged behind a pickup truck until his body came apart - it’s red. You see the state where Matthew Shepard was crucified on a split-rail fence for the crime of being gay - it’s red. You see the state where right-wing extremists blew up a federal office building and murdered scores of federal employees - it’s red. The state where an Army private who was thought to be gay was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat, and the state where neo-Nazi skinheads murdered two African-Americans because of their skin color, and the state where Bob Jones University spews its anti-Catholic bigotry: they’re all red too."

Guess Brent's gotta earn a living, and it sure beats working.

Do you remember 1989, before the Internet, when the alternative media consisted of Rush Limbaugh and Brent Bozell's Media Research Center? Those were lonely days in the wilderness. Nobody did TV-bias "gotcha" video clips of Leftist news-readers but Brent. There wasn't anybody else in the broadcast business. Limbaugh picked up this technique on his (great) TV show the following year. Brent set the strategy for weakening the Lamestreamers and re-establishing reality. Since he started, he's done quite a bit of work.

Romney is going to win New Jersey. Mark my words. And these comments by Begala are going to make the victory that much sweeter.

Begala is a scum bag. A desperate scum bag at that. And it’s the desperation that makes me smile over comments like this. Reports like this are music to my ears 4 days before the election. Speak all you want Paul, I consider it a rhapsody for our resurrection...

really? well I’m in coastal California in a very ritzy, very liberal city. and have been walking around openly with a t-shirt saying, “f*ck Obama”. And I’ve been going into Starbucks for 2 hours daily with that in HUGE letters.

And the reactions have been 80% positive —the only nasty looks are from (liberal?) black people.

****Imagine the media outrage if a conservative commentator listed states where Barack Obama would be hunted down with dogs.****

Which reminds me of a true story! A team from our HQ in Yankee land was visiting a certain area in the South. As they viewed the area the guide told them of a strange happening near there near where the Fouke Monster was said to be.

“We were out hunting coon with dogs and heard a strange howl in the swamps. The dogs cowered in fear and all night animals suddenly became real quiet. We knew it was the Fouke monster on the prowl so we got out of there!”

Then one of the women in the party asked a question...”You mean you all still hunt Black People down here?”

One of the guides then said...”RA-COON, Debbie! Ra-coon!”

I’ll see your Chicago and raise you an LA, a San Francisco, an
Oakland, and throw in a San Jose for good measure.

Funny thing is your problem is on your northside. Our
problem is on our westside.
