Posted on 04/27/2012 5:52:49 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
If you haven't seen the hilariously effective ad by Karl Rove's American Crossroads group that portrays Barack Obama as a celebrity president with a failed economic record, check it out in the video clip.
Mika Brzezinksi was clearly peeved at how well the ad was playing even with her liberal-dominated panel. After Obama fan Donny Deutsch, and no-conservative-he John Heilemann praised the ad, a Mika at wit's end sought to recruit HuffPo's Sam Stein to help her out. "Can you debunk some of the things in the ad?", she entreated. Stumbled Stein: "ah-h-h-h-h, sure, I guess." After offering a paltry defense that Joe Scarborough demolished, Stein was reduced to saying that Mika had invited him to try to debunk the ad, and that "I'm trying my best!"

This is funny! Watch hilarious Obama-celebrity ad by Rove’s group, then watch Mika ask liberal guest to debunk it—and he can’t! Ping to Today show list.
Wow. She really is a piece of work.
Does Mika seriously think people in 2012 are gonna think voting for obama is a vote against George Bush...again?
Must suck to be a Mika-lib, and wake up every day blaming Bush for America’s failing economy... with no solution in sight except elect obama.... again
I was eating my oatmeal while watching this at about 6:10am EST. Yep, she made the case that anything bad we see now is just stuff Obama inherited, and she says that anything good we see Obama should get credit for.
She is pretty dumb, those facial expressions she makes when others are talking are priceless.
Debbie does the DNC also was trying to make the same case.
As long as the economy is bad, it’s because of Bush, and whenever we see something good happening in the economy it’s because of 0bama’s policies.
I think she really believes it, based on the assumption that capitalism doesn’t work and socialism does.
What cracks me up about her is her attitude about Obama reminds me of the unfairness of what went on with the too big to fails: Privatize earnings, but socialize losses.
IOW, anything good is because Obama is a great president and leader, but anything bad is because of Bush leaving such a big mess.
Even 3.5 years into it, for crying out loud.
Thinking people will not take that seriously. ;-)
—Does Mika seriously think people in 2012 are gonna think voting for obama is a vote against George Bush...again?—
I noticed that meme on NPR the other day. They tried to make McCain be Bush in 2008 and then ran against Bush, and yesterday they were doing the exact thing with Romney.
I’ll never vote for Romney and think the country is so far gone it may not matter much who is in the oval office, but their strategy would only work with a VERY uninformed and, frankly, stupid electorate.
Sadly, there may be enough of them around.
Then there is Cris Hayes and Elmer Fuds sound alike Malisha-Harrrrish Perry. I watch these people to get an insight as to what the left is spewing and the lies are un f'en belivable.
Maybe but she could just as well just want those watching the show to believe it, concerned with what would happen if they dont. Voters might stop believing in Obama and socialism.
Republicans had/have similar problems. GWB cut taxes early on 2001/2003 but toward the end of his presidency 2007/2008 the economy unravelled. That allowed Dems to claim (falsely) that it was at least partially the tax cuts that caused it. .
Because Bush left office with a mess, Republicans are put in difficult situation claiming the Bush economy was great (he gets the credit) and bad (Dems get the blame) all at the same time.
It's called politics.
“Does Mika seriously think people in 2012 are gonna think voting for obama is a vote against George Bush...again?”
This probably is not news to any of you, but my husband and I had a work related dinner with three Obama supporters. They think it’s a slam dunk that BO will win a 2nd term. I was surprised that they don’t think it will even be close.
I’d say Democrats track the opposition (that’s us, Campers) pretty closely.
If one were a Democrat today, trying to keep tabs on how your likely opponent is gearing up to challenge you, you might go directly to sites like FR to try to understand his or her strengths.
Frankly any liberal reading here, has to believe the GOP is quite determined to destroy itself before the election is even held.
God forbid Obama should get another term, and assuming he’d willingly step down.... on Jan 19, 2017, Mika will blame the last 8 years of failure and destruction on..... W. Bush.
“If one were a Democrat today, trying to keep tabs on how your likely opponent is gearing up to challenge you, you might go directly to sites like FR to try to understand his or her strengths.

Fortunately, FR is the resistance, not the mainstream. In spite of all the gnashing of teeth, Romney DID WIN! There were people who identified themselves as Republicans, (I know, all RINOs), and cast a vote for Romney. No one made them, bribed them, or changed their votes.
There are a lot of us who are sick of seeing what Obama has done to this country, and will vote ABO, even if that is Romney.
Freepers can get on board, or watch from the sidelines, it’s their choice.
My husband and I watch the show specifically to catch her nutty reaction shots. She’s like a very bad silent film star! She also preens and thrusts out her chest when the camera is on her and others are talking. She’s seriously stupid.
If you hate Romney really bad,
and you live in a state “not in question”, either red or blue,
you can vote third party without putting Obama in office.
That’s exactly where I’m at.
As a New Yorker...the only incentive I’ve had for standing in line on voting day was to give my candidate the highest number possible.
I also get the satisfaction of looking at our county on the NY map, and ours is sometimes the only red county. Some elections one or two other light up red..but ours is consistently red time after time.
Romney does not inspire me to turn out. Maybe I will be inspired by the thought of writing in somebody. We’ll see.
“If you hate Romney really bad,
and you live in a state not in question, either red or blue,
you can vote third party without putting Obama in office.”
And then you can emulate playing the silly games that our elected officials play. You know the one:
This bill is really unpopular, we only need 20 votes out of the remaining 30 members, so 10 of you can vote “against” since you’re up for re-election.
How about just dealing with reality? We have a 2 party system, Obama is horrible. No matter what you think of Romney, he’s better than Obama.
I think part of what’s driving the anti-Romney sentiment (other than the obvious preference stated pretty clearly, by the owner of this fine site) is that many seem to have drawn a conclusion that Romney, is like McCain.
On that, this poster would differ. I heard Rush Limbaugh mention this also, recently.
The very important difference between John McCain and Mitt Romney, is that Romney really, genuinely wants and is in fact deeply committed to, WINNING THE ELECTION.
He’s not running to beat his primary challengers, as McCain was. He’s not just trying to win over media leftists, by beating other Republicans.
No. Romney is in this to be president. He’s been utterly devastating in effectiveness, as far back as 2008 when his minions pounced on and demonized Sarah Palin, and his entire world since then has been about winning the presidency this year.
Every move he’s set out to do, he has accomplished.
I’m no Mitten. I find the guy revolting, and carry a grudge over his flunkies’ treatment of the finest Republican candidate this century (Governor Palin).
But there’s really little question anymore, Romney is pretty talented at winning elections.
He’s going to be a formidable opponent against Obama, if he ends up our nominee.
And he’s no communist.
If “my” plan gets a third party to the vaunted 5%,
then the two party system has a new paradigm to deal with.
They did it in the '30s and '40s with FDR. They woke up every day and blamed Hoover, elected and reelected FDR 4 times until G-d finally had to intervene. Faith in the socialist myth trumps reality for these people no matter how bad it gets or how long it lasts.
Now, it will be ABO.
I just hope he picks a really good, conservative running mate. I would like to have something to get excited about.
Isn't it funny that Obama chose the blunt nail Biden and it didn't matter? McCain (RINO) chose Palin, and it almost caused him to win. I think it scared him silly that he might actually win.
At least Romney really does want the job and is fighting for it. I think McCain just wanted to be the GOP candidate. He was fine with being runner up.
When your work-related dinner companions think that Obama is a slam-dunk to win a second term, it is somewhat like the Jim Jones followers that drank the Kool-aid. They will be in for a big surprise come November.
And he’s never eaten dog.
Tokyo Rove has accomplished his life’s goal ... of being Mutt Romney’s lickspittle. So now we’ll see his best work coming out of his PAC.
Too bad he didn’t waste that much time on a conservative.
Definitely a highlight of the show.
Fortunately for her, Joe is a RINO who thinks that attacking Republicans 50% of his time makes him fair and balanced.
He always says :”I am as conservative as the next fellow but...”
Yep, if the NEXT fellow is Grahamnesty
As silly as the dog eat dog episode was this last week, it showed that he and his team isn't afraid to go after Obama on all levels. Apparently, Mittens is a fighter and is willing to not just fight his own family (Republicans), but to fight the leader of the neighborhood gang.
Mittens willing to take of the Mitts against Obama?
I was just SICK that McCain got the nom in 2008...
But then he picked Sarah as his running mate.
“But theres really little question anymore, Romney is pretty talented at winning elections.
Hes going to be a formidable opponent against Obama, if he ends up our nominee.
And hes no communist.”
I agree with your post. I’d also add that Romney wants to be president as a goal. That is, he has no agenda like Obama. So, if there is a strong Congress, I think Romney can be pushed into being somewhat conservative.
And he doesn’t hate America.
Perot was doing very well, before he went cuckoo towards the end of the campaign.
With those ears and some shoe polish, he’d make a passable 0bama impersonator... :)
Anyway, wasn’t he running as “Independent”, ie, no party affiliation which would then garner matching funds the next year?
You bring up a sore point that goes like this... “Dole, McCain, Romney...”
That argument was popular here in 2008 EXCEPT most people polled said they thought that Republicans still controlled congress. So republicans got creamed.
Then in 2009 I started posting that the above was not a very good argument anyway. So I got called a DUer a few times for not being a R team player (not the last time either LOL)
The problem with the : 'Pelosi took over the House in 2007 so that's why the economy started it's diving ~ 8 months later, September 2007' argument, is that now Republicans took over the House from Dems with Obama as POTUS.
Do we use that same rule and give Obama a pass for rising prices and crappy employment and blame Boehner for all these problems? I like to stay some-what consistent.

I admit it, I voted for Perot, even though he did lose his mind at the end.
I share the disgust, Dole, McCain, Romney... all terrible. But I honestly believe Romney is the most malleable of that bunch. Oddly enough, the commies at Morning Joe made a good point, after playing the “Obama Celebrity” ad. Independents may be in the mood to look for someone vanilla, boring, you know... stable, to fix what Obama has ignored.
We could do worse than Romney... Obama.
Perot is a bit like Trump.
I first heard of Perot, with regard to something remarkable he did, when he was the strong-willed outspoken entrepreneur mogul and boss of EDS.
When Carter lost Iran, a couple of Perot’s employees were trapped in Tehran, as the situation deteriorated.
Perot himself, sent in mercenaries to rescue his employees and successfully brought them home. That’s astounding.
I’d vote for Perot now, if he ran. And I’d probably vote for Trump.
Normally, I'd say "look at the audience of pMSNBC...", but since it's Mika, she's hooked on the kool-aid with no sense of reality, so "Yes. she does."
OMG 4 terms
Well, FDR had WW2 and the German-Japan axis to rally people against, not George W. Bush, “the rich” and the Paul Ryan Budget
Let’s hope barry’s jiving on late night TV is not the modern equivalent of FDR’s fireside chats
(can I get an AMEN?)
The blonde woman sounds both angry and afraid. Her god bleeds.
That’s pretty funny.
Perot turned out to be a yellow bellied snake and Trump has NO one’s interests but his own at heart, and games the financial system to his personal advantage.
He is a genius huckster, slick as goose snot at promoting his own advancement at the expense of EVERYONE around him.
At least OB was honest about his intent to trash this country when elected. Trump can’t be trusted one millimeter to put the interests of the US before his personal ones.
(And BTW I too voted for Perot, much to my later regret.)
