Dick Armey Doesn’t Even Know Who He’s Talking To?

Some of you may know of the absurd dust up between former Congressman, and conservative icon, Dick Armey and his coworkers at Freedomworks. Last year, Armey came barreling onto the Freedomworks offices in DC with an armed security guard and tried to forcibly take over the organization with which he had been associated for years.

He had the president of the group, Matt Kibbe, and several others forcibly removed from the premises, but after a bit of turmoil, and some instances in front of the remaining workers showing that Armey seemed confused about what was even doing in his own coup ended up himself vacating his post at the conservative activism group with a handsome payoff ringing in at some eight million bucks in get-lost money.

After all this came out in public, Armey then stampeded to several left-wing outfits like Mother Jones magazine and the extremists at Media Matters for America to “tell his story.”

Armey was heavily criticized for running to the left-wing press by the very movement he did so much to help foster back in the 1990s.

Now, Armey claims that he didn’t even know who he was talking to.

In a recent DC piece, Vince Coglianese writes that Armey was confused about who Media Matters was when he gave them an interview. Armey thought the extremist, left-wing group was conservative media-watching group Media Research Center.

“I wouldn’t know Media Matters from a hole in the wall,” the 72-year-old told TheDC. “That was a major, big screw up on my part. I thought they were somebody else.”

When asked who he thought Media Matters was, Armey replied, “Who’s the guy with the red beard that always does the show where he points out how biased the press is?”

“Oh… the Media Research Center? Brent Bozell?” TheDC suggested. Bozell appears weekly on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show to spotlight liberal media bias in a segment called “Media Mash.”

“Yeah, I thought it was Brent Bozell,” Armey replied.

This goes to further show that Dick Armey needs to just retire. If he doesn’t know Media Matters “from a hole in the wall,” he proves himself to be so out of touch that he is useless to the conservative movement.

Media Matters is one of the most extreme liars in the media and their screeds are used by the left-wing media to program coverage for the entirety of the Old Media establishment. Armey fell right into their hands and gave them an opportunity to slam the right. And Dick Armey didn’t know them from “a hole in the wall”?

If he cannot even identify the enemy, what use is he?

Go play golf, Mr. Armey. We thank you for your important service, but you are now just making yourself look like a foolish, uninformed, half senile old man.

Please go away, Dick Armey.
