Bamboozled: Ed Schultz Falls for Satire Story About Tagg Romney

October 29, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Liberals, Mitt Romney, MSNBC, President, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On October 25, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz proved himself gullible enough to fall for the false story that Mitt Romney’s son Tagg owns voting machines in Ohio and that he is somehow making sure that the vote in that important swing state goes the right way. Schultz may want to check his real estate portfolio to make sure he didn’t buy any Brooklyn Bridges of late.

Brian Maloney grabbed the audio of Schultz’ nationally syndicated radio show where the conspiracy-minded talker issued his newest hot tip to his adoring fans.

Question: Would you consider Tagg Romney part of the Romney campaign? Of course you would. I mean, it was Tagg that wanted to take a swing at the president, so I don’t know if he’s on the security team or the psycho team or whatever team, but he’s part of it. I mean, he’s one of the five sons. Uh, he owns voting machines in Hamilton County in Ohio. I don’t know how that makes you feel or whether that alarms you in any w…, if you’re a Republican I’d feel real good about that.

Sounds ominous, doesn’t it? There is only one problem. It isn’t true. It seems the facts tend to trip Mr. Schultz up a bit, something that Jack Coleman amusingly notes happens to Ed “every waking hour.”

New Hampshire Going… Romney?

October 26, 2012 | Filed Under Elections, GOP, Government, Mitt Romney, New Hampshire, Paul Ryan, President, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

In keeping with the “Mittmentum” that we are seeing in many states and swing states across the country, New Hampshire is for the first time looking more like a lovely purple color tinged heavily in red with polls showing Mitt Romney topping President Obama there for the first time.

With less than two weeks to go, historically blue New Hampshire is showing a 50% Romney to 48% Obama result in Rasmussen’s latest polling. Rasmussen has shown a steady move forward for Romney for some time. In October, Rasmussen had NH at 48-48 and in June Obama was up 48% to Romney’s 43%.

In recent history New Hampshire has since 1992 gone mostly for Democrats for President. Obama won New Hampshire in 2008. Dem. John Kerry also won the state in 2004. Though Bush won by a sparse 1.2 percent in 2000, the state was back to blue in 1996 and 92 when it went for Clinton, twice.

VIDEO TEXT: “Mitt Romney: The Two Paths”

MITT ROMNEY: “There are two very different paths the country can take. One is a path represented by the President, which, at the end of four years, would mean we’d have $20 trillion in debt, heading towards Greece. I’ll get us on track to a balanced budget. The President’s path will mean continuing declining in take-home pay. I want to make sure our take-home pay turns around and starts to grow. The President’s path means 20 million people out of work struggling for a good job. I’ll get people back to work with 12 million new jobs. I’m going to make sure that we get people off of food stamps not by cutting the program but by getting them good jobs. America’s going to come back. And for that to happen, we’re going to have to have a president who can work across the aisle.”

Wash. Post on Romney’s Mormon Plot to Take Over the Country

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Washington Post must not have noticed that the United States is supposed to be a land that is tolerant of religions, especially where it concerns out electoral system. This week the Washington Post has published a long story filled with innuendo that Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith is somehow engaged in a conspiracy to make him president.

The more than 3,000 word piece is also filled with pop psychology and subtle rhetoric all intended to make the reader simultaneously suspicious of Romney and his religion as well as doubting that any of his life is his own idea but is, rather, merely programming instilled in him by his father, his wife and his religion. This isn’t the only time WaPo writer Jason Horowitz investigated Mitt’s suspicious Mormonism, either. In June, Horowitz wonders if Romney’s Mormonism was “fair game” for attack.

At the outset of his newest near slanderous piece, Horowitz calls Mitt a “political scion” because his father was once the Governor of Michigan. Of course, George Romney was also a successful career auto man, as well. Why isn’t Mitt an “auto scion”? We know why. Horowitz is trying to cast Mr. Romney as a member of some privileged class who expects public office is to be bestowed upon him because it is somehow a birthright.

Us Mag. Touts Expense of Ann Romney’s Dress, Buries Higher Cost of Michelle Obama’s

Us Magazine had a little tidbit of gossip to blather about when it discovered who made Ann Romney’s and Michelle Obama’s hot pink dresses that each wore to the recent presidential debate. In its headline Us blares that Ann Romney’s dress cost “$1,690.” But Michelle Obama’s ensemble was priced at $3,290 despite the silence of the headline.

Us gives the world the following headline: “Ann Romney Wears $1,690 Oscar de la Renta Dress to Presidential Debate.”

In the body of the piece Us reports this description of Ann Romney’s couture.

Romney, 63, selected a short-sleeved crimped cotton silk dress by Oscar de la Renta. The Spring 2013 design is not yet available in stores, but retails for $1,690.

I expect we are supposed to find it shocking, downright shocking, that a millionaire could afford to fork out nearly $1,700 for a frock.

And yet, “public servant” Michelle Obama’s outfit was almost twice as costly as Romney’s.

Mitt Lost That Second Debate

October 18, 2012 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Gary Krasner, GOP, Liberals, Mitt Romney, President, Progressives, Republicans | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

I thought Mitt lost, by my standards. My standards is that if you had points to make and didn’t make them, you lost the debate. Obama made the best use of a miserable record, by being more adept in rebuttal, and having another moderator rescue him occasionally.

Romney has imbeciles as advisors. They didn’t prepare him well. Mitt’s answers were poll-driven, repetitive and uninspiring.

Here is an example of how Mitt should have responded to Obama’s Lilly Ledbetter law, which Obama ALWAYS cites to make Romney look like Don Drapper on Mad Men.

EXAMPLE:

Romney: Mr. President, I believe US presidents should receive the same salary, but not the American people who work for a living. I was fortunate enough to meet Alice Jones, a retired prepress operator in Ohio. Alice was a very proficient computer operator. The managers of her company could measure her performance, as they could the other workers, and see that she worked faster and made few mistakes than most others.

Debate Moderator Crowley Lies About Obama’s Benghazi/Terrorism Lies

CNN’s Candy Crowley, the so-called moderator of the second presidential debate for the 2012 elections, misled 60 million viewing Americans in the debate when she wrongfully sided with Obama against Mitt Romney when Romney maintained that Obama refused to call the attacks on our Libyan embassy an act of terror in his Rose Garden address on the incident the day after it occurred.

During the section on Obama’s abject failures on foreign policy, Romney was making the point that Obama took many days before he finally started calling the attacks on our Benghazi embassy an act of terror. But as he was making this point, buttinski Crowley sided with Obama telling Romney he was wrong.

Occasionally it is interesting to check out the Twitter feeds of employees of the Old Media establishment to see what sort of things they like to banter about on social media. Invariably, it seems, when we do this we find that the member of the media in question isn’t as non-partisan as they pretend to be in their work. Such is the case with Larry Shaughnessy, a producer at CNN’s Washington bureau covering the Dept. of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

A look over Mr. Shaughnessy’s recent Tweets reveals a man that hates Mitt Romney, hates former Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and loves him some Obama.

Worse, for a man whose job is to report on veterans, he also slammed famed military school, the Virginia Military Institute (VMI), as just a bunch of kids “playing dress up.” No respect at all for these young people, most of whom go on to serve our country.

Of VMI, Shaughnessy said, “VMI ain’t a military instution [sic]. Its a school where the kids play dress up. They are no more required to serve than Yale grads”

Wash Post Reporter: Ryan is an SVU Perp of the Week

Washington Post reporter Dan Zak saw a different vice presidential debate than nearly everyone else in the Old Media establishment. Zak saw the debate where Joe Biden was brilliant, Martha Raddatz was fair, and Paul Ryan was like “the perp-of-the-week” on an episode of TVs Law and Order: SVU. That is exactly what he said on Twitter as he watched the debates.

Zak must have thought he was brilliant with this Twitter observation: “35 min in, Biden is Det. Olivia Benson and Ryan is the perp-of-the-week. #SpecialVeepsUnit,” he tweeted.

If you aren’t familiar with the TV show, each week it features yet another sex criminal “perp” that has attacked a little child, raped a woman, or murdered someone. The show is one long cavalcade of sickos, weirdos, and creeps chased by cops that imagine they are above the law employing the sort of shoddy police work that would lead them to be either fired or put in prison themselves.

That wasn’t all Zak had to say about GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan. He also characterized him as a child, Tweeting, “My #VPdebate review coming soon: ‘A man debated a boy Thursday night on national television, and both were ultimately schooled by a woman.’”

CNN’s Soledad O’Brien Raves for Biden/Raddatz Tag Teaming Ryan

Whereas most people in the middle and the right saw Biden as a snorting, chortling, constantly interrupting blowhard and “moderator” Martha Raddatz as Biden’s willing assistant during Thursday’s vice presidential debate, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Dana Bash saw “perfect pitch” and a “terrific” performance by the left-wing tag team.

On Friday morning’s Starting Point, CNN’s O’Brien and correspondent Dana Bash were all a twitter over Biden and Raddatz’ work at the debate.

Right out of the gate, O’Brien gushed about Raddatz saying, “I thought she was terrific.”

Bash agreed saying, “Absolutely. If there was a winner because it was a draw between the two candidates, Martha Raddatz. She was commanding. She followed up when she need to. She pressed them on specifics.”

Raddatz’ performance was “perfect pitch,” Bash added.

Bash went on to express total simpatico with Biden’s childish debate performance.

National Journal Gets Romney Cap Gains Cut Wrong

On October 10, the National Journal slammed Mitt Romney for “favoring the wealthy” with his capital gains tax cut plan. The plan, NJ claims, won’t help middle-income Americans because they “don’t have investment income.” But, apparently Nat’l Journal didn’t bother to look at Romney’s actual plan because their assessment is simply wrong.

Reporting on a Romney rally in Ohio, Nat’l Journal claimed that Romney’s tax plan is one-sided.

But Romney’s proposal as he described it — eliminating tax on interest, dividends, and capital gains — would largely help those living on investment income, which does not include many people in the middle class. The tax break would likely help senior citizens, however, many of whom do live on investment income.

…The wealthy are the major beneficiaries of low taxes on capital gains, dividends, and interest; many middle-income Americans don’t have investment income.

Apparently Nat’l Journal isn’t big on doing its research. The fact is, Romney isn’t proposing lowering capital gains taxes on “the rich.”

“This is what (Mitt) believes. These are the policies. These are his statements. I mean, it’s sort of like someone in the sandbox who lost the game and kicks sand in someone’s face and says ‘you liar’,” she said. “To me it’s poor sportsmanship.”

Undecideds Not Budged By Smirking Joe Biden’s Debate Performance

-By Warner Todd Huston

Joe Biden did not help team Obama tonight, folks.

I am seeing a few conservatives wringing their hands that Paul Ryan “missed opportunities.” Maybe so, but since he was interrupted a full 83 times (yes it has been counted) it’s no wonder that he didn’t get all his valid points in.

With smirking Joe Biden and jolting Martha Raddatz both teaming up to interrupt every single reply Ryan tried to give, it is certain that his points got lost in some instances.

In fact, Joe was such a jerk that it is sure he only appealed to the radical, left-wing base that Obama has been slowly losing this month. Apparently Joe’s job was to shore up the base and not bother with undecideds. This is a bad sign for team Obama. If he is still trying to appeal to the base with only weeks to go before election day… well, let’s just say it’s a bad, bad sign.

But the final assessment of the VP debate will be that Ryan won on points. He seemed knowledgeable, even tempered, and nice. Biden will be loved by his base for being an asshole with his smirking, arm waving, interrupting, sputtering, scoffing, and laughing (Al Gore in 2000, anyone?) but independents, moderates and undecided voters will wonder why Biden was such an asshole.

All in all, Ryan did fine and didn’t hurt himself and Biden did NOT help team Obama with undecideds.

Here is one undecided from CNN…

And polls on CNN after the night was said and done showed Ryan with a slight lead in all categories with CNN’s viewers. Within the margin of error, often, but it still shows that Biden did not help Obama with the very group that he needs to win.

Before we get any further into this story, I have to warn you that this is not satire. That having been said, Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller perpetrated one of the worst attempts at guilt by association ever made. Miller attempted to intimate that Mitt Romney is a racist because his motorcade drove past private property that had a Confederate flag flying on it as he campaigned in Virginia.

You read that right. All Romney did was sit in a car that drove past a Confederate flag and that was something that Miller thought was “news.”

Miller made this trenchant observation on his Twitter feed on October 5.

Romney motorcade just passed a hill flying a large confederate flag in rural SW VA

Wow. Imagine, driving past a Confederate flag in a state that makes millions in tourist money off its intimate connection to American history! Imagine the sheer luck of finding a Confederate flag flying in the one state most associated with the Civil War! Why, the absolute craziness of finding a Confederate flag flying in the state that hosted the Capitol of the Confederate States of America!

Lisa Morrison of Fulton, Iowa is not very happy with the Obama campaign’s “misrepresentation” of her in a campaign statement. “I am outraged that my question is being misrepresented and used as a political tool against the Romney/Ryan campaign by both media and the Obama camp,” Morrison wrote to the Quad-City Times.

Obama attempted to claim that Mrs. Morrison attacked Paul Ryan at an Iowa campaign stop on Friday. But she says that wasn’t the case at all

“I was not calling Ryan out,” she insisted referring to the Obama campaign’s characterization of her question.

On October 5, Paul Ryan appeared at a campaign rally in Clinton, Iowa where Morrison called on him to explain a bit more about his plan for the nation should he and Romney be elected in November.

As soon as the event was over the Obama campaign highlighted Morrison’s question to Ryan and characterized it as an antagonistic confrontation. An Obama campaign statement was issued saying that Ryan, “can’t attend his own campaign rallies without being called out for failing to provide specifics about what Mitt Romney would do if elected.”

Morrison, however, vigorously disputes that portrayal of her question. In fact, she says she is a hearty supporter of Romney/Ryan.

ABC’s Stephanopoulos Attempts to Torpedo Romney’s Debate Performance Ahead of Time

-By Warner Todd Huston

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos is doing his part for team Obama to make sure that Mitt Romney’s performance at Wednesday evening’s debate is a disappointment, one that will surely lead to his losing the election in November.

On Tuesday morning’s Good Morning America Stephy sternly warned that if Romney doesn’t exceed expectations in the debates, he’s finished.

Why? Because Romney is under “huge, huge” pressure, Stephanopoulos says. Also because “he’s behind right now” and, obviously, if he doesn’t over perform, why he’ll be considered a failure.

There is always pressure to perform well at debates, granted, but what George Stephanopoulos is trying to do here is set up expectations of a great, sweeping Romney debate victory, one he couldn’t possibly live up to. Stephy hopes to damage Romney’s performance in the minds of ABC’s viewers before he even steps one foot on the stage on Wednesday.

Both Sides Set Expectations for Presidential Debates

-By Warner Todd Huston

Both the Romney and Obama camps are attempting to lower expectations for their respective performances in the upcoming presidential debates with both saying the other has an advantage.

In a recent memo to Romney supporters, for instance, Romney adviser Beth Myers noted that the President is a “universally-acclaimed public speaker and has substantial debate experience under his belt.”

“This will be the eighth one-on-one presidential debate of his political career. For Mitt Romney, it will be his first,” Myers warned.

As for team Obama, in his memo the President’s top political adviser, David Axelrod, played the “Obama’s really busy” card trying to play down expectations that he will do well at the debates because he has a lot of duties as President that gives him less time to prepare for debates.

“The challenger, unencumbered by the responsibilities of being the President, has more time to prepare — a benefit of which Gov. Romney has taken full advantage,” Axelrod said.

A website owned by the Washington Post, one that caters to African Americans, has a question about the upcoming debates. In yet another outrageous use of the race card, The Root wants to know if GOP nominee Mitt Romney will “reach out to racists” in the debates.

Keli Goff ‘s Root piece is exactly as insulting, racist, and ignorant as that title leads you to believe it is, too.

In Goff’s blinkered opinion, only racists question the inappropriate, 20-year-long relationship between racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama. Goff’s feverish imagination conjures that racism as Romney’s next move to gain the advantage in this close election contest.

First of all, aside from her own racist premise that all whites are racists enough that re-introducing Rev. Wright into this election will automatically win Romney votes, one has to wonder why this fool would think that this tactic would work in 2012 when it didn’t four years ago?

Last week the media was all over Paul Ryan’s visit to an event with the American Association for Retired People gleefully reporting that he was booed. The media treated the whole affair as if the AARP was some non-partisan organization. But, the truth is, the AARP is no more non-partisan than any organization carrying water for the Obama administration.

Take The Hill, for instance. In its report the inside Washington newser noted that the boos Ryan received was “a clear sign of just how big a challenge Medicare poses to the Romney campaign.”

This characterization is absurd. It presents the AARP as a venue that might not boo any proposal of the reform of an over taxed government program! AARP is solidly on the side of big government – it was a leading proponent of Obamacare — and will brook no truck with anyone talking of reforming anything. Of course they’ll boo Paul Ryan.

As our embassies burn and our foreign officers are being murdered overseas, TIME Magazine’s Joe Klein is desperate to change the current narrative of Obama’s major failures in the Middle East. So, in his latest piece, Klein wants to go back to talking about Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts healthcare policies.

Who can blame Klein for trying this? After all, from the Obama-loving media’s perspective talking about Mitt Romney’s garbled healthcare positions is a better plan than talking about Obama telling Egypt they aren’t our ally, Obama skipping all his intelligence briefings so he can go golfing and attend fundraisers, and his administration’s utter failure to detect the coordinated attacks that were perpetrated against our embassies and foreign service personnel in the Middle East on Sept. 11 and 12.

But what makes Klein’s “The Mitt Mirage” so laughable is his blindly partisan assertions that the Democrat national convention was “extremely successful.” This is a silly claim that even many of his own compadres in the Old Media establishment can’t force themselves to say.

Along with the rest of the Old Media establishment, Washington D.C.-based newspaper Roll Call also attacked Mitt Romney for having dared to criticize the Obama administration for its failures in the Middle East after the attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Libya. To push the anti-Romney narrative, Roll Call claimed that a “rift” had developed among Republicans over Romney’s reaction. Strangely, the Capitol Hill newser didn’t offer much by way of proof that such a rift exists

Immediately after the attack in Cairo, Egypt, our embassy released an ill advised statement that essentially blamed America’s tradition of free speech for the violence. Mitt Romney immediately responded that this was a “disgraceful” statement for a U.S. embassy to make and criticized the Obama administration for it.

After all, America’s embassies operate under the control of the President of the United States and when an embassy speaks it is rightfully assumed that they are speaking with the President’s voice.

Democrats and their progressive cohorts are now trying to claim that Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan is lying about the number of times he’s hiked Colorado’s mountainsides. Naturally they are garbling the truth. Is there anything these left-wingers won’t try to make into an end-of-the-world outrage?

This faux outrage is, indeed, a “mountains out of molehills” moment, because the facts show this purported controversy is reaching to the heights of pure demagoguery.

These Obama surrogates are claiming that Paul Ryan lied when he said he climbed 40 of Colorado’s 54 mountain peaks that rise to over 14,0000 feet in height — peaks called “fourteeners.” This, they say, is nearly impossible because the amount of time and training that would be necessary to have tackled 40 of Colorado’s “fourteeners” would have left Rep. Ryan little time for Congress.

Weather Channel Ignores Romney Visit to Isaac-Hit Gulf Coast

September 9, 2012 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Mitt Romney, President, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Now that Hurricane Isaac is in the history books, The Weather Channel, America’s top weather related website, posted a photo essay of the damage left by the storm. The photos depict flooding, destroyed homes, aggrieved residents and there’s also a photo of the visit by President Obama. But one thing there isn’t is any photo of GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s visit to the Gulf Coast.

The photo essay, titled Isaac Photos: Gulf Coast, does rip your heart out. Seeing all the devastation and seeing the poor homeowners whose lives have been so badly affected by storm Isaac is certainly filled with emotion.

This storm drew sympathy from the nation and the attention of first responders and news folk alike, but it also drew visits by both candidates vying for the White House… not that you’d know that from The Weather Channel’s coverage.

This is the touching, well-made film that was shown at the Republican convention last night. It is a great piece to introduce Mitt Romney and family to the country.


CNN’s ‘A Team’ Rather Do Hurricane Coverage Than RNC Convention

August 30, 2012 | Filed Under CNN, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, GOP, Journalism, Media, Media Bias, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, President, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Something interesting to note about the front half of this week’s coverage of the news over at CNN is that the network’s A team reporters — Soledad O’Brien and Anderson Cooper — have for the most part eschewed the GOP convention preferring to stand in the winds of hurricane Isaac rather than be faced with covering Republicans.

For most reporters, when they are told they are doing storm coverage, it consists of standing in the rain and winds to yell into a mic about the wrath of Mother Nature. And it’s usually considered an unwelcome assignment, too.

Think about on-site weather coverage by your local TV news station and you’ll recall that the correspondents that are standing in the wind and rain are never the A team news anchors. As the A team is always sung as a bug back at the studio, usually it’s some low ranking reporter or reporterette — the ones always doing the 100 birthday stories or the lost dog stories — that are sent out to stand in the harsh weather.

But not CNN. No, this week two of CNN’s top talents were the ones standing in the churned surf and 100-mile-per-hour winds to report about hurricane Isaac, a job usually given to reporters on the lowest rung.
