Posted on 06/28/2011 7:39:07 AM PDT by camle
ABC News' George Stephanopoulos said the media plans on investigating all 23 of Michele Bachmann's foster children, tries to get her to say she'd eliminate the minimum wage, tries to stir up trouble between her and Palin, and debates her about the founding fathers and slavery.

Am I the only one who fantasizes about beating the hell of of George Stephanopolous?
When will Americans — Democrats and Republicans and whatever else — finally stand up and say “ENOUGH!” It is patently indecent to scrutinize the children of our leaders, whether they are minors or adults.
This is one place Independents could wield some real power: tell the MSM that Americans are not interested in gossip. We ARE interested in One Nation under God, with Liberty and Justice for All.
frankly i’m confused aS to why this threat is left hanging in the air, and no one is challenging georgie to apologize and recant.
in a perfect world, he’d’ be gone already.
You have to remember, he was part of the Clinton attack machine during Clinton’s campaign and later in the White House.
and god help her is even one kid stepped out of line in the slightest. if only one of those kids ever snuck a ciggie, or (heaven forbid!) a beer, or a joint...
this is just totally out of line, and far over the top of basic decency.
And here we go... the Palinization of Bachmann is under way. And, whatever they can’t find, they’re create.
what needs to be done to him is the same as what was done to dan rather...
Mine is to get Bill Maher in a corner and kick his a**
No, you're not the only one. Quite a few would like to slap that little snot-nosed brat around and shove him into a locker.
Time for conservatives to dig up stuff on Stephanopoulos or any other lib blogger/reporter. Get Breitbart after his ass.
This is the republicans fault. When this biased fool says something like this all responses should begin with, I know you are a democrat and still loyal to your old employee Clinton but
i wanna know where the pajama patrol went. seems like they thought the job was finished and all went home...
That would be “picking on a midget”! My guess is he is all of 5” 2” in heels.
when “Steffie” plays miniature golf, does he know?
We must put the call out and revive the Pajama Patrol!
I didn’t see a thread about MSNBC trashing her about John Wayne so I’ll briefly mention it here as another over the top attack.
She was in Waterloo IA and mentioned that this is where John Wayne is from and how we need that spirit that JW had. MSNBC said she is a moron because John Wayne the cowboy is from a place 2 hours away. And then they went on about how she probably meant John Wayne Gacy, rapist/murderer, who actually did live in Waterloo for a short time.
i don’t think that bachmann is polished enough for the big time, but neithere her nor her family deserves the kinda of slime treatment from the likes of him. frankly he needs to go.
Our founders were raised in a country where slavery was the norm. The created a government that put all the levers in place to end slavery, a 200 year institution in America. Their actions put slavery on course for extinction.
Stephy can go to hell or Greece. Take your Pick Stephy.
This guy is the ultimate scumbag.
i agree, but if i were greece, i’d prefer cruise missiles to georgie-boy;-)
there is no greater hypocrisy, than how the MSM treats conservatives, compared to Obama.
...if they’d done 1/1000th of this to Obama, he would NOT be president.
but, it is good our candidates are tested under fire, so the cream rises to the top.
Bachmann has said a lot of good things lately, like about NOT raising the debt ceiling. and if she said she’d do away with minimum wage, i’d stand and cheer her !!!
(anyone compare the recession and economy from 2007 to now, with the HUGE HUGE increase in minimum wage ?)
Foster children are usually carrying baggage from bad situations. They bring the baggage to the foster home. Everyone knows this. It will be so easy to exploit some of these individuals. The media will go after some and find the ones that still have scars. Putting a roof over a head and giving them stability in a routine does not always help a troubled child. Mrs Bachman should know they will work hard to trash her via the foster kids.
TEA party activists and conservative media should stop pussy-footing around Obama's hidden past. If one of Bachmann's foster or biological children are dragged through the mud, they should go after Barack Obama - not his children, who are rightfully 'off limits' - and demand to know why the man who wants to be re-elected president of the United States has his college records sealed and demand, incessantly, they be revealed. I believe they'll indicate Obama was registered as a foreign student. I would also like to know who paid for his top-tier education. Certainly not his family. We may never see this information but we need to use the pursuit of it to let the MSM know that 'going after' the children of Republican politicians has to stop. Make the case that Obama has never, ever been subject to the slightest amount of scrutiny by the MSM while they gleefully attempt to 'investigate' private citizens that were once foster children under the care of a Republican presidential nominee contender. Make them answer the glaring question: why? That we endure the MSM attempting to smear Republicans through their children is absurd.
The MSM has no moral authority to dig into Bachmann’s past until they look into Obama’s. Every time they open their mouths they need to be reminded of that.
Sorry, George. Michele ain’t biting.
I predict that in the near future Michele and Sarah will embrace each other onstage, with Sarah saying something like “One helluva cat fight here, eh?”
Once upon a time only Larry Flint would do an investigation of this type. What has happened? (Death of outrage)
Rather than the sub-human spin Gore put on it, the compromise was a good thing because it meant slaving holding states didn't have an unfair advantage over non-slave states when it came to representation in the new federal government.
I may miss recollect but I recall AlGore went so far as to try and scare black voters into believing Bush and Republicans would count blacks as 3/5ths of a person if elected!
Beck has a vision to help launch new Internet media, as a counter to agenda of major network and cable powers.
Bachmann turned that one around against Wallace and she will make “Steppy” look like the snarky little wiener he is.
Love your post.
When, when, when is anybody with a set going to go public and yell like Network about how we are not going to take any more of this scrutiny down to the molecular level of all conservatives, and no questioning at all the man with no past??
Some how I do not think Stephanopoulos interviewed Obama the same way? Now the media wonders why people think they are bias. Look no further than this interview and compare it to Obama worship and slob fest.
As a historical note, Al Gore's son, Al Gore III, was arrested around daddy's nominating convention for reckless driving and it didn't rate a blip on their radar. Compare that with the Palin daughters.
And yet we know nothing about hussein’s past other than being a Marxist, anti-American, Islamist working for another government as a Trojan horse.
If Georgie wants to judge people in history based on today’s norms and standards, then he is going to end up going down a very slippery slope he will not want to be on. Boy he is desperate and dumber than I thought?
I guess I have to take it upon myself to advise our candidates on what they should have said, and this is what Bachmann should have said to Georgie -
“I guess you should know all about that George when you served the Clintons by harassing Kathleen Wiley and Linda Tripp.”
I’m tired of our candidates making nice with these media scum. Why aren’t we investigating their personal lives?
Nope, but he's just one on a list of many FRiend.
George Stephanopoulis — Obama’s hatchet man.
Michelle Obama: “We’ve had help from the media.”
Yep. Al Gore, III, was arrested in NC for driving at speeds, if I remember correctly, over 100 mph. The whole thing was glossed over, and Al the Third was forbidden to drive in NC for a period of time. Big deal. If one of my kids had done that, they’d have been met by a SWAT team. And when they got home, they’d wish they were back in jail.
OMG!! I thought kids were off limits!!!! Have they NO shame?? No, Democrats are VILE and EVIL!!!!!!
You know, like they doggedly pursued people associated with Hussein. Oh, wait...
I’m real sick and tired of liberal trash attacking conservative women. They do it with impunity and apparently suffer little from engaging in it. I’d like to bitch slap Stephanlottashit.
