Skip to comments.Andrea Mitchell is Stuck on Stupid (Compares Gov. Sarah Palin to Gov. George Wallace)

The title of this post comes from remarks by Lt Gen. Honore at a press conference following hurricane Rita in 2005, when he was admonishing the press work with him cooperatively to communicate accurate information to the public for a change.
It kind of sums up my view of NBC. This morning brought another example, when Andrea Mitchell was on a panel on Meet the Press spouting unfounded opinions about a vast array of issues. Here's one that really got to me.
MR. GREGORY: Just be a little bit more specific, Andrea, whether we're talking about figures like President Obama or Sarah Palin, who you spent a lot of this year covering as well, as kind of this leading edge of conservatism at the moment. What happens?
MS. MITCHELL: What I noticed when I was out covering Sarah Palin when she was out on the book tour, at 4 and 5 and 6 in the morning on freezing days, when people had been out for hours, camped out with their kids because they wanted to see her, they are so hungry for a symbol for anyone who can give them answers. And in this case, she was just signing books.
All accurate so far, and if she had stopped there, all would have been well. But she didn't.
But there's an anger out there, and I have not seen it since my very first campaign, which was 1968 and George Wallace. And that is the angry populism which is not fact-based, it's just furious at everybody; angry at Democrats, at Republicans. The tea party has higher numbers in our last NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll than either of the other traditional parties. And that is what I think this news cycle which you referred to is feeding into, and that is what does frighten me. This spirit of America is so large and embracing, but there is an angry subtext because of economic dislocation that is very, very worrisome.
Tea parties = Ku Klux Klan. Right. Stuck on stupid.
Wallace did wear glasses.
Be scared, Andrea. Be very scared.
If Sarah Palin is George Wallce then how she is marry to Alaska native which ancenstry is Asian HELLO Andrea
But I’m sure the Rodney King riots were justified, eh, Andrea?
And all of those trashed out American flags after an Obama speech? Just normal Americans, right?
“This spirit of America is so large and embracing, but there is an angry subtext because of economic dislocation that is very, very worrisome...”
With the MSM you would never know she feels there was a large and embracing spirit in America. The leftists are so nasty about anyone who is not lock-step in sync with their own prejudiced viewpoints. The problem is they are standing inside the forest and cannot see the trees!
These leftists are so afraid of Sarah Palin they can’t see straight! The more they try and discredit her, the more popular she becomes. People KNOW the truth when they hear it and Sarah tells the truth.
George Wallace was a Democrat.
(needs to be repeated every time some dem tries this)
George Wallace was a Democrat.
So incidentally was the Arkansas governor whose opposition to the integration at Little Rock Central High - led to the standoff with Eisenhower and the National Guard.
And George Wallace was a Democrat.
Sarah will be the next prez Andrea and you know it. Not only that but she will have a republican senate and house. You and your leftist ilk are so over, you are gonna cry 96 tears....uh..make that 96,000.
It's time to lock Andrea up for her own safety and that of others.
Governor Wallace was a life-long Democrat, as were almost all KKK members. Democrats are the party of Jim Crow, the KKK, segregation, the Confederacy, the Copperheads, etc...
Maybe Mrs. Federal Reserve should take an American history course at CUNY.
Well ,she is Right that every one is pissed off and if republicans don’t find an ideology then its 3rd party we go with or without Sarah. Tea Party ROCKS!!!
The way closet racist liberals use the race card is absurd and polarizing in the worst possible way.

Check out this website currenly in development LoL:
WOW that is cool
It is absolutely fact-based, Andrea, your willfully blind nitwit. And now the Tea Party folks and others have even more justification to be mad, and even madder: Obamacare passed the Senate with some of the sleaziest bribes and pay-offs ever, giving special favors to some states and even special favors to some citzens in some states but not others. And the Dims lied shamelessly saying it would not increase the deficit, and further review puts its additional cost at about $2.5 trillion over ten years.
The mad people should be even madder, Andrea. And listening to your nonsense gives them even more justification.
I compare Andrea Mitchell to National Socialist Magda Goebbels.
Controversy during Obama Campaign
During an appearance on MSNBC on June 5, 2008, Mitchell came under fire when she referred to the voters of the southwest Virginia region as rednecks. On June 9, Mitchell apologized for her comment stating:
And now, a point of personal privilege. I owe an apology to the good people of Bristol, Virginia, for something stupid that I said last week. I was trying to explain, based on reporting from Democratic strategists, why Barack Obama was campaigning in southwest Virginia, but without attribution or explanation, I used a term strategists often use to demean an entire community. No excuses, I’m really sorry. As they say, when I make a mistake, it’s a beaut.
