Clarice

Andrea Mitchell is an ugly, lying bitch. That's as nicely as I can put it.

And she flat out lied re Plame and her knowledge about it as far as I could tell as the events unfolded.

Captain Hate

An easier question might be do Trandrea and her NBC cohorts (the "t" is silent) ever tell the truth.

centralcal

Looks like the whole brand is showing a pattern:

NBC edits Sandusky interview tape
MSNBC edits Zimmerman tape AND Romney tape

And these are merely 3 recent ones we know of. How many more are there actually?

Agree completely with Clarice about Andrea Mitchell.

NK

Clarice just about covers the Andrea Mitchell stuff.
The Republic will survive 'Bam and his debt addicted, racially obsessed crony government spending crew -- barely but it will survive-- and 2 good things may come from 'Bam. 1. the country rejects 'Progressive' national politicians for a generation and 2. the "National" legacy media are exposed as lying weasals. "Bam may have singlehandedly destroyed those 2 threats to the Republic. I always though 'Bam was Ayers' leftwing plant-- maybe he was a Koch Brothers plant all along.

Donald

You're too nice Clarice.

She is very snide also.

centralcal

I am at work and away from the Telly, so will love any live blogging reporting about this:

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell will address her program's decision to run edited footage from a Mitt Romney campaign stop that mischaracterized his statements and set off a firestorm of criticism on the right.

"Andrea will address this on her MSNBC show today at 1p eastern," a network spokesperson told POLITICO.


Porchlight

Isn't this exactly what they did to GHWB with the grocery store scanner? He wasn't amazed that there was such a thing as a scanner, but that it worked so well (because earlier scanners hadn't).

NK

CC-- "Andrea will address this on her MSNBC show today at 1p eastern," a network spokesperson told POLITICO."
Anything short of Mitchell committing seppuku will be insufficiently addressing the matter.

centralcal

Well, NK, you should check out Mediaite and the scumbag Tommy Christopher who is writing her excuses justification as I type. And, no, I have no intention of linking to him.

Captain Hate

WooHoo Boehner.

Porchlight

Go Boehner. Draw the bright line.

Ignatz

Oh the revolting irony to turn on CNBC and see the hideous hag Maxine "Bonnie, as in Bonnie and Clyde" Waters grilling Jamie Dimon on how to run a clean bank.
Displaying her mighty intellect to go along with her corruption she demands he answer her questions with a yes or no and the very first question out of her mouth one second later is an either/or that God himself couldn't answer yes or no to.

Thomas Collins

I just watched the two clips. The editing was disgusting enough, and clearly, as in the Zimmerman editing, was not a mistake. But what sickens me even more is Andrea Mitchell calling Mitt Romney out of touch. Andrea Mitchell calling anyone out of touch with Joe and Jane America is the equivalent of Bibi Jones complaining that Denise Milani's photoshoots are too graphic.

NK

Usually I support using a bank fraud to interrogate a fraud (that's why FDR made Joe Kennedy first SEC Chairman). Maxine Waters is a corrupt politician who has covered for a fraudulent bank, but she's too fucking stupid to interrogate Jamie Dimon, or my border collies for that matter. (apologies for the swearing, but Maxine W. is just fucking stupid)

Rick Ballard

I rise in defense of stupid people around the world, NK. Your defamatory comparison cannot be allowed to stand unanswered. Maxine Waters does not and will never possess the intellectual horsepower to enter the ranks of the merely stupid.

centralcal

Senators Grassly and Leahy have requested that SCOTUS broadcast the ACA ruling. Wouldn't that be something? Of, course, Roberts will probably deny the request.

NK

RickB-- I stand corrected.

NK

Zero chance of a live broadcast-- is there a smaller number than 0%?

dublindave

Once again,I can't fault MSNBC's creative editing designed to shed light on a deeper truth.Here's a Presidential candidate,that's proved through his job creation efforts in Mass. that's he's all fingers and thumbs, about to inherit a job that requires an insane level of lateral thinking skill and he's telling 'Wawas' anecdotes????

"I can see Russia from my house".-Sarah Palin

Anyway shout out to Boehners people for pre-empting their bases's expected apoplexy on the Affordable care act decision that's going to be made public next week(friday week if my source is correct).Getting Boehner on record in a strong way hides his involvement in leaning on Roberts so hard.


Nice strategy.

woo woo

I think Maxine Waters may be posting here.

Mark Folkestad

A non-person just left a dropping here, claiming, yet again, that Sarah Palin said something that she did not say. What he is quoting is something that a left-wing moonbat said, on SNL, mocking Palin. The former governor said that Russia could be seen from Alaskan soil, as indeed it can be, in the case of Big Diomede Island and Little Diomede Island. But the non-person is not operating out of simple ignorance. The non-person knows the truth. It just loves throwing out all the lies it can muster to distract reasonable and rational people.

NK

Ruh-Roh-- Russian ship has insurance canceled by Brit insurer because it was carrying military equipment to Syria in violation of the policy terms. Ship apparently comes about near the Hebrides and heads back to Holy Mother Russia. Vlad the Impaler will not be pleased, some vodka soaked maritime insurance broker in St Petersburg will be disappeared soon enough. http://www.mercurynews.com/nation-world/ci_20890406/russian-ship-thought-be-carrying-helicopters-syria-diverted

Thomas Collins

Meanwhile, it is being reported that China, Russia and Syria are planning Mideast war games. See LUN.

I think we are going to find out sooner rather than later that having a POTUS who proudly downgrades the US is not going to turn out well.

Bill Lake

what poor schlub has to watch Mrs. Greenspan's show to see how she explains it away?

Speaking of schlubs, dublindave, you do know that quote is from Tina Fey don't you?

Captain Hate

Even ABC has cleaned up the Palin quote and admitted having gotten it wrong initially; although I doubt that the dense Charlie Gibson knows it yet.

Threadkiller

Amazing!

Rick Ballard

This WaPo piece explains why the MFM is going full Ottomatic.

But Romney is campaigning with more confidence, in part because of his standing in the polls. While just 58 percent of Republicans viewed him favorably in mid-March, 78 percent had positive opinions in late May, according to Washington Post-ABC News polling.

It's common for party faithful to get behind the nominee but the speed and intensity of the embrace of ABO does not comport with Dem projections (probably based upon careful reading of the ACME Political Strategery Manual). After all, T1000 really is a 1%er and everyone knows how much Americans hate merit based success.

I wonder when the Pinhead Troika will have the President start giving "America, where is your jealousy, your envy, your greed?" speeches? They better hurry. Governor Romney will be breaking the 90% support barrier fairly soon.

NK

TC-- well at least the Brits outed the military gear shipment to Syria, maybe MI-6 can still play the game with Vlad. I know the fool 'Bam can't (and wouldn't even if he could) and Hillary spends her time these days looking through construction boot catalogues and resumes for young female attendants (photos a must.)
TomM-- I'm begging you, please sanitize the site-- DD stands for dumber than dirt, he is an insult and an embarassment to the merely stupid everywhere (h/t RickB.)

Mark Folkestad

TK, nice comparison pix, but Dobbie is the better-looking of the two.

Jane

Oops I've posted this stuff in the wrong thread. I've got Andrea on. She is one ugly chick.

"Mitt wrapping up bus tour. there has been a lot of discussion over nite about a conversation that you and I had yesterday. WE didn't have a chance to play the part about innovation so let's play that now:

Now on to immigration..."

And there is your mea culpa

dublindave

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH...nice one,Andrea.....it made him sound even MORE out of touch hahahahahahahahahahaahahahahah

sbw

My timing was right so I thought I'd tune in Andrea on MSNBC.

When I got on the station and heard 15 seconds, I decided my timing was wrong and turned off MSNBC.


Ahhhh! I can breathe again!

dublindave

Hey,Maguire,you really busted Mitchell on that editing controversy...do you think .....do you think she'll be put on paid leave and an internal investigation will go ahead.....roflma....

A Rubio clip was just played on MSDNC. When pressed on his qualifications for Vice President, Rubio once again said he knows he is qualified for the Senate.

Yeah, the meaning really changes when you add the word "and".

I've been laughing my ass of since Mitchell's-uhm-rep destroying apology.....I gotta go get some air.

See you cats later.

Extraneus

Oh, but do they crave another dishonest hit like the ones they did on GHWB and Sarah Palin. So bad that they can taste it!

They know there's a Pulitzer in it for the lowest, most fiendishly sleazy prog "reporter," and the competition is intense. Who will win?

derwill

I wonder why it never occurs to liberals that if they must be fed lies in order "to shed light on a deeper truth," then what they will be left with is, in fact, not any sort of truth at all.

When you grow up, dudu, and acquire some actual wisdom, you will discover that if a thing is true, it stands on its own. It doesn't need the help of lies. Or "creative editing."

I think this, more than anything, is why I have so little respect for liberals--they have so little respect for themselves. They actually WANT to be duped, fooled, and lied to.

Jane

Exactly!

NK

Jane and whomever she quoted @ 1:25. Perfect. That is the literal true about virtually every committed liberal. It is a corrupt mindset that takes even high IQ and turns into to a stupider than stupid. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

NK

Jane and Derwil....

When a "comedienne" makes up some crap, it's close enough to a real Palin quote for people like doubledumbass.

Issa says there are no defenses to not answering the subpoena. Contingent requirement for the meeting is receiving the docs. "It's not about meetings, it's about docs"

Danube of Thought

"Once again,I can't fault MSNBC's creative editing designed to shed light on a deeper truth"

Once again, fake but accurate is good enough for the lower orders. (What is Austrian for "fool?")

Extraneus

They actually WANT to be duped, fooled, and lied to.

And they idolize the ones who do it best.

NK

Issa-- hopefully Issa has some inside whistleblowers, and he's setting Holder up for a perjury trap. Of course, Holder won't fall for that, he'll just play out the string until January 2013. He did that for Bubba, he'll do it for himself.

Janet

NBC also edited out "under God" from the pledge (my AM radio guy reminded me...Chris Plante I think)

When I saw the first clip yesterday, I thought it was ironic as hell that Andrea Mitchell was laughing at Romney for having not frequented many WAWAs.

Like Andrea has ever set her snooty face inside one.

Here is that video.

Bloomberg:

"Job openings in the U.S. decreased in April by the most in almost four years, the latest sign that the labor market is cooling. The number of open positions dropped by 325,000, the biggest decline since September 2008, to 3.42 million from 3.74 million the prior month, the Labor Department said today in Washington. Hiring slowed from the prior month and firings climbed. The decrease in openings coincides with the slowdown in hiring seen in April and May, signaling employers are pulling back as the economy cools."

lyle

What's a WAWA?

NK

DoT-- saw that yes. It's another big economy pothole for the ChoomWagon.

"Liberalism is a mental disorder. "

Remember these are people who actually get up in court and claim that their members are too dumb to get photo ID, but they should be allowed to vote anyway.

Porchlight

lyle, it's a convenience store chain in the Northeast. A good one too.

Jane

Bohner has now narrowed the request to 1300 docs. He's pulling the strings. I am not happy.

This is Issa v Bohner to some degree. Bohner is cooling on the contempt. He is on my shit list.

This is how to email of you live out of his district.

AlsO WH announce that they will implement Obamacare regardless of what the court says.

Have a banana.

No email: Call here: Phone: (202) 225-0600

Porchlight

Well, they didn't say they would implement it if SCOTUS strikes the whole thing down.

Not that I would trust them on that.

lyle

Thanks, Porch. Too lazy--and unsurprised that the MFM is up to their same lame tricks--to figure it out on my own.

lyle

AlsO WH announce that they will implement Obamacare regardless of what the court says.

Please, Lord, have them do exactly this. As defiantly and publicly as possible. Thanks.

jimmyk

you do know that quote is from Tina Fey don't you?

Remember when the left used to (inaccurately) claim that Reagan confused movies with reality? It seems the left has a monopoly on that--helped by the fact that SNL and Hollywood rarely lay a hand on Democrats.

MarkO

I opened this thread, read the first post and thought to myself, "Damn. I must have posted here earlier." Well, no. It was Clarice, and I love her.

MarkO

I have never been impressed by Bohner. While it may not be true, I always felt as if he had attended a two martini lunch just before he hit the camera.

MarkO

BABA WAWA.

No one's buying it: Mediaite declares "victory" on Andrea's behalf (because she didn't apologize!), but the comments are 10-1 fisking their effort.

"When you grow up, dudu, and acquire some actual wisdom, you will discover that if a thing is true, it stands on its own. It doesn't need the help of lies. Or "creative editing."'


Sadly,not everyone has the innate ability to discern the truth of a Presidential candidate's character.Especially if it's someone like Multiple-Mitt whose turned dodging where he stands on any given issue into an artform.

The point Mitchells selective editing was making was that Romney is out of touch with the majority of working Americans.I'm not sure that that's a misrepresentation considering the recent addition of a car elevator to the Romney Mansion.

And so my point stands,"sometimes"you can shed more light on the truth by intentionally taking something out of context.

Another Bob

Jane, suppose Mitt asked Boehner to put the leash on Issa until after the election? Avoid the sideshow?

Threadkiller

In an effort to make duda's point, Obama declares the private sector is doing fine.

Jim Ryan

At a Sheetz (and I guess at a Wawa, too) you walk in, press touch-screen buttons to get exactly, precisely the kind and quantity of sandwich you want, and then pay and then receive the sandwich. It is amazing. As long as the sandwich is good, of course.

Jim Ryan

There's a button for salt. A button for pepper. They're not fooling around. This way, you get precisely what you want and the sandwich maker has an easy job of reading a clear recipe for your sandwich printed on a screen.

Porchlight

Sadly,not everyone has the innate ability to discern the truth of a Presidential candidate's character.

How true that is.

Jack is Back

It was condensending and completely devoid of any integrity or truth. But that is what appeals to the progs and their lap dog politicos. Its the narrative that counts here and what Mitchell and NBC did was continue the legacy of Rather and Mapes - fit the narrative to the facts not the other way around.

Dishonesty like this will beget only more of the same and the Romney team knows this like Duckie knows his cadavers. Lies will kill the chance of any second term because the Romney campaign knows how to slice and dice and expose the belly of the beast.

Porchlight

I wish Subway would do that. The sandwich makers always make it seem like their job is so tedious, having to listen to the customer tell them which toppings they want.

dublindave

I predict the ginned up Holder-gate will fizzle out much like the Mitchel edit-gate scenario,not with a bang but with a whimper.


Once again Republicans confuse the reality they wished they lived in with the reality they actually live in.

Porchlight

Its the narrative that counts here and what Mitchell and NBC did was continue the legacy of Rather and Mapes - fit the narrative to the facts not the other way around.

"The narrative" is all the Dems have been talking about for the last week or so. That's the new strategy - "tell better stories." Spielberg etc.

Nice to see duda and Trandrea working so diligently for the cause.

He better not let me find out. I've always liked Boehner. I like his background and work ethic. I understand the politics he is dealing with and I know the left will make hay of it, but have some principle!

Say Clarice why don't you let it all out and tell us what you really!!! think about Andrea Mitchell. I mean there's no sense in holding back.

In the 'narrative' department, Popular Science's Tom Clynes is giving Michael Mann,

Kathy Kattenburg

"And who looks silly now?"

All the people -- which obviously includes you -- who are either saying or suggesting the full context makes any difference to the stupidity of what Romney said.

First, it was perfectly understandable even w/o the complete context that Romney was praising the WaWa touchscreen machine because it was an example of how efficiently and beautifully the private sector works. You didn't need his actual attack on the public sector to understand that. It was clear. Second, his analogy (between a touchscreen cash register which is a tangible thing, whereas the postal service is a complicated system was, to put it kindly, a very poor analogy. Second, his substantive point (that the fact you can buy a hoagie real quick when the store uses a touchscreen register proves that the private sector is vastly better, more efficient, more awesome, than the public sector) is ridiculous, misleading, and untrue on the actual merits. There are endless examples of private sector entities being maddening and impossible to navigate or get satisfaction from, along with examples of businesses that work well; and there are countless examples of the public sector (including the post office) working the way they should, being efficient, quick, and professional, as well as examples of the public sector being inefficient, bureaucratic, etc.

Plus, Romney's attitude of childlike wonder and awe at the touchscreen in WaWa makes him look like an idiot. He's never been in a store with a touchscreen register before? He's never heard of WaWa before? He just discovered this wonderland of free enterprise called WaWa for the very first time?

The man is a blooming idiot when faced with any aspect of life other than engineering corporate takeovers in a boardroom, and demonstrates that fact every time he opens his mouth. He's also cold, calculating, completely out of touch with daily realities of anyone who hasn't lived their entire lives from birth in the rarefied atmosphere of the ultra-wealthy. And to top it off, he has no beliefs, no convictions, no moral center at all. He is void of any set of personal values that he adheres to regardless of what might benefit him politically. He's a political chameleon. He's utterly amoral, an empty, vacant soul.

MarkO

How’s this: Andrea is a ferret-faced, dissembling poltroon, relegated to a position of inanity to which she clings only by virtue of her marriage to a doddering leftover of history. And, she has terrible breath. To her I say only two words, and they are not, happy birthday.

Actually parts of the private sector ARE doing pretty damn well.Corporate profits have recently topped 10 per cent of gross domestic product,for some bizarre reason they've refused to follow the tradtional patterns of a recovery by re-investing in the economy.


I guess it doesn't always "trickle-down".And i'm guessing that we Democrats will be reminding the American people of the fact when it comes time to hold these Coporations down and make them fucking bleed taxes.

We'll get it one or another.

Ex-- the video body/facial expression language is so telling. Vlad is smugly lording over 'Bam -- sneaking a peak a few times to let 'Bam know who's boss. 'Bam the narcissist is pissed at being humiliated -- again-- so he scowls. And the faux shoulder pat at the end is so pathetic-- the complete tell of a weak foolish man. God 'Bam is such a putz.
