Anybody remember Jack Ryan?
Welcome to the thuggocracy!
Palin needs to run with this MSM’s Obama thugery tactics. She’s a victim, and now Joe’s a victim. These workers are not going to like one of them being torn apart by elitist media.
Jack Ryan, from the Clancy books?
Fox needs to make issue with the MSM so that Old Joe gets some public attention. We don’t have the Messiah’s Birth Certificate but we know all about Joe’s life. WTF is wrong with this picture?
I’m betting that the sliming of Jpe will disgust a goodly number of people who were not disgusted about the same thing being done to Palin.
Again, the Dems overreach, and it will backfire.
I'd be happy to donate directly to Joe, but I'd rather see Sean or Rush administer such a fund and broadcast to the whole world the predictably magnanimous response to it.
The MSM would let a Kenyan become President!
Jack Ryan, who was one of Obama’s opponents in his U.S. Senate race.
The Chicago newspapers served as minions of the Chicago political machine to get Ryan’s divorce records unsealed so they could trash his character.
This is NOT going to go over well with John and Jane Q. Public.
The taint of “McCarthyism” was a lie.
The Left engages in outright Stalinist tactics.
To the MSM: it is too late. Your covert golden child spilled the beans that he is pushing Marxism whether the public wants it or not. Discrediting Joe will NOT negate what came out of OBAMA’s mouth. “spread the wealth around”.
Gee, and I thought that it was eeeeevil conservatives who were out there crushing people.
Obama supporters, here is just a glimpse of what will happen to dissenters in the Obamanation. Get your portraits of The One ready for diplay in your homes, lest you be found guilty of not doubleplus belly feeling Big Brother.
These people are absolutely disgusting. A private citizen can’t ask a question without being subject to the left’s favorite phrase—McCarthy like tactics.
Nope. Jack Ryan from Illinois. We've seen this M.O. before...
HOWARD WOLFSON IS FILTH
that is all
Ah, over at Hot Air they are now using the term Tanning Bed Media for TV’s talking heads. I like it.
Call Obama a socialist and the Secret Service pays a visit the next day!
Attack and destroy Joe, but ignore the mountain of dirt that Obama is standing on.
Laws pertaining to invasion of privacy....do they still exists?
Source, please. I’d love to cite it.
Anyone who dares to question the Dear Leader must be destroyed by the MSM. The media establishment have become the jackbooted brownshirts of the Democratic Party.
The MSM are a malignant fifth column bent on destroying this country.
This is good; The more Joe looks like a normal American, the better it is for McCain. (half of normal American’s get divorced, right?)
People need to explain to co-workers that this is the retributuion from BO and Diane Sawyer for Joe the Plumber daring to “speak truth to power.”
It’s a foretaste of much worse to come for free speech in America if BO controls the Justice Dept, the FBI, the IRS...
This is the way liberals work: attack the messenger and ignore the message.
The MSM, I think the WaPo, forced his sealed divorce papers be made public even after both Jack and his ex Jeri (7 of 9) objected. They wanted to protect their son from any harm that the papers might reveal. The MSM denied their requests and forced the divorce papers to be released anyway.
Private citizens are more than welcome to ask Lord Most High Barack any question they want, but it must be phrased properly, as in, “Great wise master, tell me, do you want 90% of my income this year or 95%?”
I’ve been on FR since 2000.
I wonder if “they” will be on my doorstep on Jan 20, 2009.
The idea here is not so much to ruin Joe but to serve notice on all citizens that if they dare to confront Hussein on any of his idiotic positions they will be subject to the same treatment. Joe is to serve an object lesson to any who might dare to oppose the will of The One.
Only if they know about it.
You think it’s bad now, just wait until Obama is in the White House.
No one will dare criticize the Messiah then. Welcome to the Police State.
My goodness. What busy little Blueshirts they are.
America WAKE UP - THIS IS HOW THE DEMOCRATS INTEND TO RUN THE COUNTRY !
If you disagree, you will be “investigated”.
They are MARXISTS, COMMUNISTS, SOCIALISTS.
I think we should quite publicly offer to use the excesss from any fund to pay off the nowexposed tax liens of Obama’s campaign finance manager
Just in the interest of equal opportuiity
“Again, the Dems overreach, and it will backfire.”
Other than FOX, exactly WHO in today’s mainstream media is going to call them on it? Can you find an MSM employee ANYWHERE that can withstand the effect on thier carreer that Racism charges will have?
This is EXACTLY how Nazism gained control. Anyone who dared to stand against Hitler was called a “JEW-LOVER!” by the German Media in those days.
"The media can do this kind of investigation on Joe the Plumber, but they can't do the same for Barack Obama? "
Every media hack who smears a conservative, or the supporter of conservative, should be smeared. We need someone to do op-research on the likes of Chrissy, Olberman, etc, and when they start spreading a false smear about Sarah Palin or something, all of a sudden we find out one of them was busted for soliciting a prostitute, or drunk driving, etc. Turn the tables on the brownshirts.
But Obama’s past remains uncovered?
no- mention “death” and “hospital utility closet”
(as, for aborted but gasping fetuses)
and an Obama campaign worker will send the Secret Service over to investigate your threats against the messiah
Obama shows America his true colors with his statement to Joe the Plumber, “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”.
The bottom-feeding left-wing Obama lapdog media shows America their true colors with their disgusting investigation of Joe.
America is watching the left fully bared.
Joe may be what saves our nation from these socialists
I turned to CNN briefly last night (commercial break during the playoff game) and Anderson Cooper and his buddies were all trashing Joe the Plumber rather viciously—essentially calling him a fraud. The guests were the David Gergen, who used to pretend to be a Republican, the useless Ed Rollins, and a black Democrat whose name I don’t remember (a regular on that show).
