Andrea Mitchell: Hillary is ‘Out of Touch

VIDEOWashngton Free Beacon ^ | June 29 2014 | Washington Free BeaconPosted on 6/29/2014, 1:44:44 PM by PoloSecNBC’s

Andrea Mitchell slammed Hillary Clinton saying she ”lacks self-awareness” and is “out of touch” Sunday on Meet The Press.“The book tour has looked like a political campaign. I think it’s a little bit that she was rusty and a little bit of lack of self-awareness, when she talks about being dead broke and she then tried to fix it.

But still, not getting the language – to really understand that she is a little bit out of touch,” Mitchell said.“She doesn’t quite realize as Ruth Marcus wrote in the Washington Post, she should stop giving paid speeches, should stop asking colleges to pay out of a foundation.

She’s got enough money just let it go at this stage, she concluded.Last week, Mitchell’s colleague Chuck Todd also criticized Clinton over her wealth gaffe.

Obama on Meet the Press… (“President Obama turned up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: a bitter, intransigent partisan claiming to be the only non-partisan, non-ideological participant in the “fiscal cliff” drama.”)

President Obama turned up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: a bitter, intransigent partisan claiming to be the only non-partisan, non-ideological participant in the “fiscal cliff” drama. “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda – I’m a pretty practical guy,” he explicitly stated, offering his

past four years in office as evidence.

It’s too bad “Meet the Press” doesn’t have a laugh track. Obama’s interviewer, David Gregory, was willing to flagrantly violate D.C. gun laws to beat up on NRA executive Wayne LaPierre, but when President Obama takes the stage to drop insane howlers like that, America’s top outlaw journalist just sits quietly and nods.

In truth, nothing about Obama’s record in office, re-election campaign, or fiscal cliff policy has been even slightly non-partisan or non-ideological. This kind of posturing gives partisanship and ideology a bad name – voters do band together into parties and vote for candidates based upon their campaign promises, after all. Whether or not either position is correct, a Republican’s ideological commitment to low taxes is no more illegitimate than Barack Obama’s stern ideological commitment to raising them.

David Gregory’s fiscal cliff question posed to the President on Sunday’s Meet the Press has to be on the list of the year’s top ten.

The iPad Answer (“…We aren’t going to fix the economic or social problems until the sheeple smarten up and realize how deeply immoral our society has become. “…”)

April 14, 2012 Leave a comment

I was struck by a comment by one of our FreepersClearCase_guy, notably because I’ve said much the same thing here and there. ClearCase_guy said,

“Sometimes I wish the Republicans would put both the economic and social issues on the back burner. We probably need to spend 4 years just HAMMERING the propaganda industry, the media, and the educational establishment. Just expose them all as manipulative liars with no principles of any kind.

We aren’t going to fix the economic or social problems until the sheeple smarten up and realize how deeply immoral our society has become. “

ClearCase guy couldn’t have said it better. It is constant Right-Left bickering instead of coming down on Right vs Wrong. A society without morals and truths will soon be in shackles.

The problem with the media is that they lie. The problem with democrats and progressives is that they lie all the time. Anybody can say anything and get away with it, especially their side. All you get is back and forth ‘he said, she said’ or ‘I was taken out of context’ or ‘they all do it’ etc. Nobody believes anybody with all the denials and distortions.

The only way to fight the media is to confront them with actual unedited news clips, events, and the lies and outrageous comments of media hacks, campaign consultants, and politicians. It is not enough to just verbally counter the David Gregorys or Chuck Todds or Stephanopouluses.

On last week’s Meet the Press, Gregory challenged a Republican congressman when he accused the media of mocking the Mormon religion. The congressman brought up a quote from Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC which nailed O’Donnell. Gregory shrugged and went to another topic.

It’s not enough to just counter the enemy with facts. To really impress the viewer, the independents, and the media itself is to counterattack with actual visual evidence. Surprise them. Hoist them on their own petard on their own studio sets.

Enter the iPad. Remember when Obama gave the Queen of England all of his famous speeches on an iPod? I am proposing that the republicans arm themselves before stepping on stage with Couric or Lauer or Letterman or Gregory with iPads chock full of news videos of media bias that can be instantly played back to them. Suddenly, the usual hapless blundering republican mouthpiece has veritable visual firepower at his disposal.

Transformation and Infiltration of America: The United States of Frankenstein| The Post & Email

OBAMA’S PLAN FOR AMERICAby Dr. Laurie Roth, Presidential CandidateHave Americans allowed a Frankenstein to be created?Jan. 24, 2012 — Obama has told us for years what his ‘change’ plan would be if elected. He plans to bring America down in size and turn her into a broken-up Barbie Doll…..maybe Ken. Maybe we will become a hybrid Barbie/Ken combo that is confused.Obama has never been a mystery to anyone, including our lame-brain media and political leaders who look the other way as more of our Constitutional skin gets ripped off.

Various sources offer several estimates as to how many Czars Obama has appointed. Some say that now it is up to 45 Czars, who completely bypass Congress. When I even start to look at the Czars’ profiles, I am stunned into silence, then start screaming in unbelief! All are radical leftists. Listing the horror show of the Czars is a whole other article.

The selection of Czars, however, tells us everything about Obama. He is anti-Semitic, anti-capitalist, anti-American, anti-freedom, anti-US achievement, pro-abortion, anti-sovereignty, anti-Constitution, anti-border security and anti-God. That pretty much covers it.One of my show listenersrecently reminded me of a “Meet The Press” interview back on Sunday, Sept, 7th, 2008. Just a few highlights tell you exactly who Obama is and what he planned to do way back.

As Newt Gingrich takes his turn as the GOP flavor of the week, all that baggage he carries is beginning to be opened, unpacked and examined like a tourist going through customs on a slow day at the airport.

The past few days have shined a light on Newt’s relationship with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the quasi-governmental agencies that Gingrich has been hammering for their role in the nation’s mortgage meltdown. Yet, it turns out that Gingrich’s consulting firm accepted a sum well in excess of one million dollars from these same agencies to push their agenda with his Republican buddies on the Hill.

Ron Paul is Not “Ending” Student Loans

October 25, 2011 Leave a comment

There are many headlines out there now stemming from his Meet the Press interview yesterday claiming that Ron Paul wants to end student loans. Well no, in fact, though he abolishes the Department of Education along with four other federal departments, the student loan part is taken out and handled elsewhere.

Everyone recognizes we have major problems with Social Security and Medicare, and yet when anyone attempts to address these problems, they are immediately accused of “ending,” “slashing” or “getting rid of” such programs. Ron Paul is not suggesting this for anyone currently reliant on these programs or for those who will be in the near future. In fact, Paul’s opt-out for Social Security in his budget plan is age 25—not exactly imminent doom for the program or those on it.

The same is true of student loans. To recognize that we are bankrupt and we must have drastic change in this country is not to say that certain programs Americans have come to rely on will be gotten rid of overnight. Paul is certainly saying no such thing.

But the costs must be addressed—and not simply what the government spends, but the massive debt incurred by those in this country who just want a college education. To be sure, the countless Americans who are now slaves to education-related debt can tell you there are substantial problems with our current system.

Ron Paul simply wants to fix them.

Greenspan: US “Can Pay Any Debt It Has Because We Can Always Print Money” (video)

August 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan explains how the United States can pay down the debt. By printing money. Transcript:

David Gregory, moderator of “Meet The Press” on NBC: “Are U.S. treasury bonds still safe to invest in?”

Alan Greenspan, Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve: “Very much so. This is not an issue of credit rating, the United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So, there is zero probability of default.”

Greenspan says the S&P downgrade was just meant to hit a “nerve” and hurt the “self-esteem of the United States.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he strongly supports a federal mandate requiring citizens to buy health insurance – a position that has been rejected by many Republicans, including several who likely will be running against him for the Republican presidential nomination.

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gingrich told host David Gregory that he continues to advocate for a plan he first called for in the early 1990s as a Congressman, which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.

Did Obama Call the Libyan Situation a ‘Turd Sandwich?’ (NBC Anchor Says ‘Yes’)

March 30, 2011 1 comment

Don’t call it a Kinetic Military Action!

Yet another neck-snapping moment provided by one of the MSNBC anchors.

Savannah Guthrie was part of the ‘panel’ on Meet The Press this past Sunday and she gave us all one for the video clip file. This was all happening in advance of the President’s Monday night address to the nation. ‘And the President is obviously not happy with his set of choices. One person told me, in a meeting he called this military action in Libya a ‘turd sandwich’ but he was quoting one of his national security aides who likes to use that term.’

If you just want the short clip. . . here is the instant replay of Savannah’s last sentence;

Can you imagine what the reaction if an American president described the situation he faced as a ‘turd sandwich?’ Part of me wants the President to be that honest with the American people, and another part wonders how many of us would be able to handle that much honesty?

Obama Issues Government Shutdown Threat

FoxNews ^ | Published February 16, 2011 | | Chris StirewaltPosted on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 6:20:45 PM by TSgt

Anatomy of a Government Shutdown“Of course a shutdown is possible because that’s what the Republicans are threatening us with on national TV, Meet the Press or one of those dandies or whatever the show was. The Republican leader was asked, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘is there going to be a government shutdown?’ and he wouldn’t respond to the question.

So, this isn’t Schumer or Reid or Hoyer. Of course it’s a possibility. That’s what we’re trying to avoid.”– Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid talking to reporters about House Speaker John BoehnerPresident Obama warned of stopped Social Security checks and issued a formal veto threat Tuesday to the Republican spending plan currently being debated in the House, setting the stage for a potential government shutdown next month………………….

Cliff Kincaid — NBC’s David Gregory Worries about Legitimacy of Obama Presidency

February 15, 2011 Leave a comment

NBCMeet the Press” Host David Gregory berated House Speaker John Boehner on Sunday because members of the public and the Congress have doubts about President Obama’s professed Christian faith and alleged birth in the United States. Gregory wondered if all the doubts about Obama were undermining his legitimacy as President. He wanted Boehner to denounce these questions and concerns as “ignorance.” Boehner refused to do so.

“There was something that caught my eye this week that was on Fox News on the Hannity program, a focus group with voters in Iowa led by Frank Luntz, the Republican strategist, and he had this exchange with them,” he told Boehner.

The videotape that followed showed several people declaring that Obama was a Muslim.

Gregory was flabbergasted. He said to Boehner: “As the speaker of the House, as a leader, do you not think it’s your responsibility to stand up to that kind of ignorance?”

In fact, as AIM has noted, calling yourself something is not the same thing as proving it is the case. Obama’s Christian claim deserves to be scrutinized, even when it involves a sensitive and personal matter such as religious belief. Our media are supposed to question the statements of those in power……………………………..

The Media Loses Readers and Viewers to its Own Radicalism

September 1, 2010 Leave a comment

The problem with the American media is that it doesn’t speak to Americans. That’s why FOX News is successful, and CNN is in the basement. Network news exists underwritten by medication and mutual fund commercials, and even so it’s losing money. ABC News is making severe cutbacks even while cutting Amanpour a 2 million dollar paycheck for a show hardly anyone watches anymore. And despite investing in a splashy media rollout for the Amanpour branded This Week, she finished a distant third, well behind Meet the Press. While viewers normally tune in to see a new host, the addition of Amanpour couldn’t even compete with CBS or NBC’s own similarly decaying programs on the day of her own debut.

Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell on if Obama is Muslim: ‘I take him at his word’ he’s Christian

As Barack Obama continues to battle rumors he is secretly a Muslim, a leading Republican weighed in on the controversy, seemingly coming to the president’s defense. “The president says he’s a Christian. I take him at his word,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Ky. said Sunday on NBC‘s “Meet the Press.” “I think the faith that most Americans are questioning is the President‘s faith in the government to generate jobs.” But McConnell’s carefully worded remark raised eyebrows among those who felt the statement was intentionally cagey.Excerpt Read more at
