What? Perpetual Spokesman for the Democrats Chuck Todd Calls Bob Woodward "Temporary Spokesman for Republicans"

Remember their standard defense against bias: They are not politically biased, they are simply calling balls and strikes as the see them.

But note what happens the moment a legendary reporter calls a strike against Obama. Now suddenly the claim of presumption of fair pitch-calling no longer holds.

Chuck Todd, you will remember, worked for the political campaign of ultra-liberal Senator Tom Harkin and then, as they do, assimilated himself seamlessly into liberal reportage.

Here, he concedes the premise that someone who pushes one party's side of things is a "spokesman" for that party -- however, notice this rule will never apply to himself or his gaggle of liberal hacks at MSNBC.

Because, you see, "Reality has a liberal bias."

Amazing.

Extraordinary.

And consider too that Chuck Todd has just also joined in the White House-coordinate scheme to discredit Bob Woodward. Even as they claim there was no threat, they execute the actual threat!

And it's not even 2:30 PM in the east.

10 Biden Brags He Desegregated Movie Theaters…



A legend… in his own mind.

Via Washington Secrets:

Vice President Joe Biden is amazed when whites try to act like they know what blacks have been through, but given a chance this week to brag on his part to end Jim Crow laws, he bit: he helped to desegregate movie theaters as a kid.

Biden, who grew up in Pennsylvania and Delaware, hosted an event at the Naval Observatory vice presidential residence Wednesday night to celebrate Black History Month. [...]

Biden talked about being “a white kid living in a border state growing up in grade school and high school” and seeing the civil rights marches as things “that affected my life and so many white boys like me.”

So much so that he took action. “He said he did things like trying to desegregate movie theaters,” said the media pool report from the Wednesday event. Biden added: “No big deal, I want to make it clear to the press.”

What amazes me is they lie so comfortably?

23 The three laws of roboti--uh--journalism:

1. A journalist may not injure Obama or, through inaction, allow Obama to come to harm.
2. A journalist must obey the orders given to it by Obama, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A journalist must protect its profession's existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

And there is the so-called "zeroth" law:
0. A journalist may not harm liberalism or, by inaction, allow liberalism to come to harm.

>Student-Loan Delinquencies Among the Young Soar
<

"The number of young borrowers who have fallen behind on their student
loan payments has soared over the past four years, the Federal Reserve
Bank of New York said in a report released Thursday.



According to the report, 35% of people under 30 who have student
loans were at least 90 days late on their payments at the end of last
year, up from 26% in 2008 and 21% at the end of 2004.




The new figures, which exclude borrowers who are still in school or
aren't yet required to make payments, show that young Americans are
having a tougher time repaying college loans as debt loads increase and
job prospects remain shaky."

Yesterday, after a conflict-fraught deliberation process, the Obama Administration awarded the Light Air Support (LAS) contract to Brazilian-based Embraer over Beechcraft; a Wichita Kansas based company with a long history of supplying the U.S. military with aircraft. Had Beechcraft been granted the contract, the company expected to add or sustain 1,400 jobs in the U.S. The Embraer plane, on the other hand, will be primarily built in Brazil, with only about 50 assembly jobs in the U.S.

Barky went too far this time...with his demagoguery.
He got eyerolls from some ofhis own media thralls, for his recent stunts.

And before they could sweep that away, Woodward comes out with a ration of provable Truth about the whole scarequester.
OMG. Panic.

The mass attacks from the Left...against Woodward...are proving that the threat that "You will regret this" is in fact, what is happening.
Heh.

The timing is impeccable. For the next 24 hours, if the truth about the sequester becomes known, the democrats may have to compromise instead of having the GOP give 100% to 'meet in the middle'.
This goes to the whole nature of the democrat party. Every purpose of their party has been abandoned, except for redistribution. Given that, they must fight to the death for every dime, and never be seen as considering a cut.

132 This episode reminds me of Leo Strauss' great essay, Persecution and the Art of Writing. Strauss writes:

"A large section of the people, probably the great majority of the younger generation, accepts the government-sponsored views as true, if not at once, at least after a time. How have they been convinced? And where does the time factor enter? They have not been convinced by compulsion, for compulsion does not produce conviction. It merely paves the way for conviction by silencing contradiction. What is called freedom of thought in a large number of cases amounts to -- and even for all practical purposes consists of -- the ability to choose between two or more different views presented by the small minority of people who are public speakers or writers. If this choice is prevented, the only kind of intellectual independence of which many people are capable is destroyed."

Strauss was writing in 1941, while the Nazi-Soviet Pact was the dominant fact of political life. Totalitarianism was in the ascendance.

Wonder what he'd say about the Obama White House?

The only hope is for Boehner to resign along with Cantor. They have become statist, and Conservative voters are starting to take notice. Boehner passed a Harry Reid Bill today without a majority of the GOP caucus voting for it.

Say Hello to Universal Background checks. The Dems have 201 members in the House. They only need 17 RINO's to pass any bill.

Haesert in 2000 only had 221 members, 13 less than Boehner in 2013. Haesert and the rules committee would simply not call a floor vote

An art style founded by Hans Arp in Zurich after WW1 which challenged the established canons of art, thoughts and morality etc. Disgusted with the war and society in general, Dadaist expressed their feelings by creating "non-art." The term Dada, nonsense or baby-talk term, symbolizes the loss of meaning in the European culture. Dada art is difficult to interpret since there is no common foundation.

it's no big deal!
the feds paid for the student loans with money that doesn't actually exist (thanks to the magical powers of Ben 'Big Ben Covington' Bernanke), so all we need to do is cancel all the loan debt and cancel all the non-existent money, and viola! two birds killed with one stone!
See? Reality does have a liberal bias!

186 I mentioned on a previous thread, that regressives believe in credentialism only until the credentials hurt their narrative. Woodward is journalistic royalty - normally they'd give anything he says tremendous weight because of his long history and experience.

But no. This time Woodward is saying something counter to the party line. Now his "experience" and "history" have changed to him being "long in the tooth" and "chasing past glory." His insights aren't lucid and critical; they're "embarrassing" and "foolish."

If you have a back, the regressives will find somewhere to stick the knife.

216 Ron Fournier is an American national political journalist currently of
the National Journal. In June, 2010 Fournier left the Associated Press
where he served as Washington bureau chief.
Fournier is a native of Detroit
\


As editor-in-chief of National Journal, I received several
e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with
vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Politico characterized as a veiled threat. “You will regret staking out that claim,” The Washington Post reporter was told.
Once
I moved back to daily reporting this year, the badgering intensified. I
wrote Saturday night, asking the official to stop e-mailing me. The
official wrote, challenging Woodward and my tweet. “Get off your high
horse and assess the facts, Ron,” the official wrote.
I wrote back:“I
asked you to stop e-mailing me. All future e-mails from you will be on
the record -- publishable at my discretion and directly attributed to
you. My cell-phone number is … . If you should decide you have anything
constructive to share, you can try to reach me by phone. All of our

Yep. Woodward has had access to American Pesidents for decades. And when he writes something they don't like, they keep bringing him back anyway. That's part of the reason why there's so much lefty panic over this story. In the past, people who didn't like what he wrote at least thought he was fair. That counts for something, and the leftists know that. Woodward will be awfully tough to bring down. Awfully tough. Like him or not, the guy's got DC cred. That's not going to go away overnight.

249 I'm open to the concept that some 'journalists' have an IQ north of 100 and can accurately calculate the point in time that a second term President becomes a 'lame duck'. I'm also open to the concept that Woodward has 'done the math' and is willing to take the chance.

It should be a 'popcorn worthy' event if he has calculated precisely, because it could be a 'pile-on' of historic proportions. Much needed, and long awaited, imho.

258 Any day now Woodward will issue a clarifying statement or publish a column claiming he misinterpreted the exchange. There was no threat, nope, nada, nossireebob. He will then apologize for any misunderstandings and promise to work harder in the future. Posted by: troyriser at February 28, 2013 03:00 PM (vtiE6)

269 And now, from the crime desk:

Burglar invades home and ends up using his family jewels.

A man was arrested after an attempted burglary in the county of Carambeí, in the state of Paraná. The odd circumstance is that the burglar got himself involved in sexual intercourse with the home owners.

39 years old José Pedro Alves, cut the electric fence and went over the wall, and when he reached the living room he found two couples having sex, and nobody minded his presence. In fact, José was readily invited to join the orgy. He didn't hesitate.

According to José, he was engaged in sexual intercourse for 30 minutes. 34 years old A.P.L., and her partner 31 years old C.S.O, stated to the police that they thought José was a friend they had invited over to participate. "We thought his black hood was part of some sort of sexy ninja costume."

I think I saw a move about that once.

Yeah, his idea that people shoot someone through the front door can be problematic. Someone did that in our area quite a few years ago. Turned out it was some kid toilet papering trees or something.

I'm just hoping that due to his mental issues, Biden would be rejected for a carry license. I'm thinking he might get all PMSy and shoot supposed rapists in the street.

I found it DAMN sinister. Here's the tone I got:

"We're friends, Bob, amiright? Buddies. So this story you've got out there. About the sequester. I've got to say, Bobby, I'm not feeling the love. I'm feeling a little wounded, actually. Like maybe you've been talking to people behind my back. Like maybe you've been saying things you shouldn't have been saying to people you shouldn't be talking to.

"Now I'm not saying we aren't friends. I'm just saying that, as a friend, I find what you've written to be a little hurtful. Mama always taught me that, if you didn't have anything nice to say, you should keep your mouth shut.

"I'm not saying that's what I'm saying. I'm just saying.

"But we're friends, Bobby. We can patch this up. I wouldn't want to lose a good friend like you, and Bobby? You definitely don't want to lose a friend like me. Because I've got other friends, Bobby. And you know what they say about the friend of my enemy, enemy of my friend.

"Not that I'm saying you're an enemy, Bobby. I'm just saying."

My point is, what is ever going to change if people like Chuck Todd never, ever have to account for telling lies. What good is a First Amendment in the soiled hands of Chuck Todd, Chrissy Matthews, et al.?

We can gripe about Chuck Todd, but to what end? I am very sad. The press is to hold all in power accountable, not only Rs. The Freedom of the Press is a joke - an abomination - in the hands of Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd. And most people today are just too stupid or don't even give a damn.
