Good Old Debbie Wasserman Schultz, On the Priorities USA Obama SuperPAC “Cancer” attack ad: “I have no idea the political affiliation of the folks who are associated with that SuperPAC.”
oh really, maybe it’s the Green Alien Sex Probe Party? 🙂
Every single viewer knows she’s BS’ing here. Every last one. If she’s unable to tell a basic, obvious truth in this circumstance, why should anyone believe a single thing that comes out of her mouth? After the interview, DWS got pummeled online for her performance, which she attempted to clean up with a belated tweet:
RT @DWSTweets: Clearly Priorities USA is a Democratic SuperPAC. Was trying to state the obvious: we have no control over their activities.
So you lied previously then, eh. I guess she didn’t build those lies either. 🙂
Then Rich Lowry (“right winger”) met Rachael “Mad Cow” Maddow (MSDNC):
LOWRY: Do you support $700 billion in cuts in Medicare over the next ten years?
MADDOW: I’m not running for president.
(the usual escape clause for Liberal pundits)
LOWRY: Do you?
MADDOW: I’m not running for anything. Paul Ryan is running for vice president.
LOWRY: Do you? Why can’t you answer? See, you can’t answer.
MADDOW: But wait, I’m not running for anything..
LOWRY: This is the key vulnerability. Democrats have cut $700 billion out of Medicare which you won’t or can’t defend it. Defend it.
MADDOW: Is it good or bad?
LOWRY: Do you support it? You can’t answer.
MADDOW: But wait. Why are you asking me?
LOWRY: You can’t answer. Because you’re an opinion maker who is supposed to give us your opinion. But you will not tell us what your opinion is.
MADDOW: What I want to know is the logic of…
LOWRY: Democrats cannot defend that.
MADDOW: Wait. I want to know is the logic…
LOWRY: Go ahead. Defend it.
MADDOW: What I want to know is the logic.
MADDOW: Wait. Rich, hold on.
LOWRY: Answer me. You’re not answering.
MADDOW: Can I say something?
LOWRY: Can you answer?
MADDOW: Can I say something?
DAVID GREGORY, HOST: Let her answer because I want to go back to Bill Bennett on something.
MADDOW: What I want to know is the logic of attacking somebody for something that you yourself are proposing to do? Paul Ryan proposes keeping those same cuts.
LOWRY: Mitt Romney is not doing it, and those are meat axe cuts. Can I make one last point? One last point?
GREGORY: No, no. I’m going to pull back on this. I want to ask Bill Bennett a separate question. This debate will go on.
Incredible. CBS News has an anti-Romney “fact check” articleup this morning supposedly debunking statements made by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan during yesterday’s introduction of the veep pick. At the end, CBS actually snuck in the hyper-partisan, DNC-talking-point assertion that it was “clear” that when President Obama utttered his infamous “you didn’t build that”, he was talking about “teachers and infrastructure.”
CBS claims that in criticizing “you didn’t build that,” Republicans “seized on only part of Obama’s quote.” In fact, it is CBS itself that edited out another, most telling, part of Obama’s comments. The network omitted the following Obama lines which make irretrievably clear that he was indeed disparaging the achievements of entrepreneurs. More after the jump.
BARACK OBAMA: “[I]f you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.”
Not that it comes as even the slightest surprise, but CBS News reveals itself as little more than an arm of the Obama campaign . . . infrastructure. (Newsbusters)
Then on 60 Minutes one of the First questions they can come up with, a Talkign point: Bob Schieffer: How many years of tax returns did you turn over to the campaign?
Ryan shoots back: I’m going to be releasing two, which is what he’s releasing. What I hear from people around this country, they’re not asking where the tax returns. They’re asking where the jobs are. Where’s the economic growth? Those are the issues that matter. I think these are more or less distractions to try and take us off the fact that the president has given us failed policies that aren’t working, that are putting us deeper into debt, that are costing us jobs. And so, we’re going to focus on what it takes to turn this country around and get people back to work.
So much for that Talking Point. But they keep at it because they are childish bullies and it’s the only “journalism” they know how to do.
David Axelrod: Starting now, we can expect even more wealthy, right-wing ideologues lining up to support the Romney-Ryan ticket.
The people on the other side who are trying to buy this election are putting nasty, deceptive TV ads on the air right this very minute. They’re not going away. They’re getting worse.
He ignores his own nasty, deceptive ads, of course. He’s a Liberal. His attacks don’t count.
For the GOP’s conservative base, Ryan’s entry holds the tantalizing promise of elevating Romney’s game, inciting a debate on the familiar and friendly battlefield of the tea party-dominated 2010 midterms.
The 42-year-old Wisconsin congressman “knows the game — he knows math — he knows exactly what the country needs,” said Alan Simpson, the former Republican senator from Wyoming Obama tapped to co-chair his deficit commission.
“There will be an adult conversation, therefore the children will throw emotion, fear, guilt, and racism on him,” he added. “They will bomb him, bomb him, shell him coastline and bunker, and he will survive. He has facts. He uses math. He’s damn good. He’s excellent.”
And boy do liberals hate FACTS!!:)
Ryan:“We won’t replace our Founding principles, we will reapply them,” he effectively challenged Obama to say what Obama believes, which is: Madison was an extremist in enunciating the principles of limited government — the enumeration and separation of powers. And Jefferson was an extremist in asserting that government exists not to grant rights but to “secure” natural rights that pre-exist government. (hot air)
