I Told Myself I'd Never Do This...

(skip to most recent comments)

That I'd never post Mother Jones' trash over here, especially after seeing so many of my comments "disappear" from their website in the past...  but apparently lefties think these videos are actually "newsworthy",  "earthshattering" or even capable of changing the downward spiral of the Obama campaign into that of only a clogged toilet.  

Here's the one most lefties climaxed over, where Romney stated (factually might I add) that 47 percent of Americans are "dependent upon government"  (which in liberal-ese translates to "he hates half the US population"):

That's not really the end though... he also calls Palestinians not interested in peace talks and "committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel" (I know.... right?  BIG SHOCKER apparently):

And this one I'm surprise Mother Jones even posts.    Obama foreign policy is a joke (despite being constantly announce he's an expert at it...  after all, he won a Nobel Prize... did you know he killed Bin Laden too?).   He cozies up to Russia, willing to sit down with Iran's leaders but can't find time to meet with Israel because he's got a full schedule of campaigning, partying with Beyonce and you know... other important stuff:

Maybe  what Putin, Ahmadinejad, Netanyahu and Obama really need to do is get a tee time set for their own foursome... share a couple carts on the golf course.    First argument will come down to who's stuck riding with Netanyahu.

After many years of trying to understand Wingutese I have to conclude Wingnutz don't know what words like "context" or "bias" even mean and use them differently from normal people.

Your "simple questions" are nonsensical unless you think the answers could have some bearing on Romney being misrepresented in the video. No one but crazy people is even raising that possibility.

I honestly don't know what you think your video proves. In press conferences, reporters and candidates are engaged in a mutual struggle. Reporters struggle to get their questions answered. Candidates struggling to get out their own agendas and narratives. The fact that reporters would coordinate to make sure no matter who was called upon, the question they all want a candidate to answer will actually be asked, is a huge yawn. The same thing goes on at White House press conferences. I feel moronic even having to explain this because it should go without saying. Somehow, apparently it doesn't to people like you who see in it some partisan conspiracy.

It still amazes me how stubbornly Nooshans insist when things aren't going their way that they've been oppressed by a media conspiracy, but I guess they'll never give it up until they're convinced it isn't working for them anymore.

Good news for Mitt Romney!

September 19, 2012 at 15:33 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

If only the media would stop suppressing the news that the President is a Kenyan Muslim socialist, this election would be SO over.

It was the tone they were trying to set... you know that Winston. Your sheepish benevolence to the moonbat agenda has been dutifully noted though. "Wha... what? I don't get it! What narrative? People talk all the time in these." (no duh).

"Do you regret..." ?? Roomful of journalists and that's what we come up with? They're the ones hinting that guilt should be felt over his actions, not him. Each one of them had an assumption that Romney was wrong and if he defended what (in their opinion only) was his flawed "tactic" (because acting presidential and not apologizing to barbaric terrorists that like to rape ambassadors is a tactic meant to "score political points"... dontcha know).

No understanding of what bias is?
Do you even know what the other questions that were asked were?

In regards to my simple questions that should be easy to answer (and you certainly wouldn't consider it "nonsensical" if it made perfect sense and justified Mother Jones' excuse entirely, which I'm willing to do if legitimate, now would you?).... How does a hidden camera get turned off? FIrst off, if you're fucking with the thing, it's not going to be very well hidden. Now at the end of the first it appears nothing is around it, it just ends. At the beginning it starts with some server's hand leaning on the table in front of it. Where's the part where it gets shut off? Did it get bumped? Did it run out of tape? Was it plugged into an outlet run by solar panel on a cloudy day? This shouldn't be that complicated of an answer if "the source" noticed and quickly began to re-record, "resulting in an estimated a one-to-two minute loss of tape." I can tell you in great detail any number of my great screw-ups when recording events. These are "no-brainers" liberals can't seem to come up with answers to for some reason.

Now on the flip side if there was anything Mother Jones didn't want aired then it's a dummy excuse, something militant leftist will surely buy into right after batting their eyes and gushing at the increased chance their imagination has concocted of Obama winning in a landslide now for SURE after such inept, groundbreaking, earth-shattering, seismic, gaffetastic absurdities of orgasmic proportions . What it looks like to everybody else however is... questionable, ho-hum, yawn, you get the point.

I didn't even ask the more pressing issue others are asking... If it shut off and had to be turned back on manually, why is it in the exact same position as when it supposedly turned off? Here I was willing to believe Mother Jones for once, especially over such a non-story as this... now we can't even get a clear answer to what happened. Will they answer for the missing footage or just carry on with more softball appearances to MSNBC?

Others are up in arms... outraged at their hypocrisy...
Me? I just say "it's Mother Jones... what did you expect?"
The truth has no agenda... Mother Jones, however... does.

I was shocked to hear some people aren't paying taxes. Obama & Biden told us the little guy was getting screwed and it was about time "the greedy rich started paying their fair share."

TAX PENALTY TO HIT 6 MILLION UNINSURED MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, Associated Press –
“WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 6 million Americans — significantly more than first estimated— will face a tax penalty under President Barack Obama's health overhaul for not getting insurance, congressional analysts said Wednesday. Most would be in the middle class.”

LOL oh’ the bad timing. Just as Barry prepares to whip it out, he gets it stuck in the preverbal “tax increase zipper.”

Sorry for the trips.

This could be one of my favorite headlines of the week:

'Nonpartisan’ Obama Donor Authors Pro-Tax-Hike Report

Bias or clueless stupidity? You decide.

In the case of ol' Andrea, it's clearly both. She should file adoption papers on Barry Soetoro, now that he's an orphan. She's too old to marry him.

But remember, according to our leftie friends, there is no media bias out there, except for the [spit-growl] toothless racist gun-and-bible-clinging rednecks at Fox.

Andrea has had more face lifts than Obama rounds of golf in a year. If Chris Mathews gets a tingle in his leg when Obama speaks, what happens to Andrea? I shudder to think (I'm thinking a dusty old coal mine re-opening.) Ok now I'm queasy.

The Plutocrat Without a Clue is turning out to be the Gift That Never Stops Giving.

“Speaker Pelosi.” Say it, b*****s. “Speaker Pelosi.”
BWAAAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Get the net. Winnie is off his meds, and might hurt himself.
