Sour Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan as VP Is 'Not a Pick for Women' or 'Suburban Moms'
NewsBusters.org ^ | August 11, 2012 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 08/11/2012 5:26:00 PM PDT by Kaslin

Minutes after Paul Ryan was introduced as Mitt Romney's vice presidential nominee, Saturday, a sour Andrea Mitchell dismissed the choice: "This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women."

Playing off the GOP congressman's first speech as the presumptive nominee, Mitchell lectured, "I think that you're going to see that they [Team Romney] have decided that this is a base election." The liberal anchor for MSNBC worried that Ryan was "talking about what the base wants to hear." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan Isn't a Pick for Women

She said of his speech: "He talked about rights coming from God and they don't come from government."

A transcript of the August 11 exchange during live coverage is below:

9:52am EDT

ANDREA MITCHELL: I think that you're going to see that they've decided that this is a base election.

CHRIS HAYES: Yeah.

MITCHELL: This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is a pick for the base.

... and I think in that picture Mitchell looks even more like Marilyn Chambers
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Definitely NOT the Ivory Soap Marilyn.

I wonder if she hid her teeth behind the “Green Door”?

She even has her lips in the shape of “O” so I guess that makes the picture a ‘political ad’.

Hey Andrea!

You’re a RATagandist.

We all know you’re a radical communist operative pretending to be a member in good standing of the “media” (which means the middle)

How many people do you think really believe you are a genuine honest reporter of the unbiased truth...a patriotic American?

Let’s try it this way...What are your ratings compared to say Rush or Hannity?

One wonders if this nincompoop even undestands what that means.

Mrs. Greenspan, the childless, never married until she was damned near 70. What could she possibly know what anyone who actually has children could be thinking about?

I believe I read on FR recently (looked for the thread but couldn't find it) that Obaama in his second term (if he has one, God forbid) wants to take the US down to 292 warheads.

NO cheers, unfortunately.

We should be going up to 40,000.

Did anyone get the license number.... ...of the ugly truck that hit her?

It was tough to get the number considering the Ugly Truck kept backing over her and burning rubber. It never stood still long enough.

The "right" was taken away, however, by a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-Independent. Is poor Andrea unable to make distinctions?

The Dems were hoping someone to the left of Willard. Noam Chomsky I guess. They’re thoroughly disappointed they’re actually going to have to discuss actual issues with someone who knows their business. Biden will look like a deer in the headlights going against Ryan.

I tend to think of Angria Mitchell and Debbie Blabbermouth-Schultz as less intelligent, less accomplished and less graceful versions of Aunt Patty and Aunt Selma.

The fact of the matter is that Romney could have picked Jesus Christ himself as his running mate and the Democrats and the liberal media would have opposition research ready at hand explaining the top 10 reasons why Romney’s running mate choice is bad for America.

So if She thinks it is such a bad pick why is she whining about it? If she really thought it was a disastrous pick for VP she would be saying nothing and partying up after the newscast instead of chewing on her nails and then running them across the chalkboard...

I suspect Ms. Andrea Mitchell would not have approved even if Romney had picked a black female such as Condoleeza Rice.

Kevin,

I think that’s about right. I saw 2 different lines that each stretched for blocks. Plus hundreds of people in a grassy area across the train tracks where a large TV screen was set up. All kinds of people. Young, old , alone & in family groups. I saw someone waving a huge black and white flag with a picture of a cannon on it that said, “Come and take it!”

This reminded me of the Chick-Fil-A outpouring. Many people seemed visibly relieved to see the like-minded. People are quietly - and not so quietly - appalled at the threat to losing forever the America we loved under Reagan. Ryan is one of those, like Reagan, who is a decent man and a gifted communicator. He’s smart, but humble, and is fighting for the country, not his own power. Not qualities the GOP-E will ever understand, but the people at the rally did.

It has become almost impossible for the Obama Media to present any kind of rational sounding defense for the Usurper but Andrea is one who keeps slogging away.

“This is not a pick for women. This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is a pick for the base.”

What the he** is she talking about? (I would bet that she’d be hard-pressed to explain what she means by that.)

IMHO

She said of his speech: "He talked about rights coming from God and they don't come from government."

So is she disagreeing here or just stating a fact?

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why liberal women are usually ugly and conservative women are so beautiful.

Obviously their looks have something to do with their politics. The ugly ones come across mean, vulger and vindicitive. Need I say more?
