Reporter who bugged Biden: ‘They’re suggesting that my credentials get yanked’ for ‘rape’ question
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/25/2011 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 10/25/2011 11:20:40 AM PDT by martosko

Vice President Joe Biden’s office has asked the U.S. Senate Press Gallery to investigate conservative journalist Jason Mattera’s tactics during a recent interview, a process that could result in his press credentials being revoked, The Daily Caller has learned.

Mattera, the editor of Human Events and a widely known video ambush interviewer, caught Biden by surprise after asking if he would pose together for a joint picture. While embracing the vice president for the photo, Mattera asked Biden if he “regret[s] using a rape reference to describe Republican opposition to the president’s bill.”

Because none of those parties are answering any questions, it’s unclear what specific rules Biden’s office is alleging Mattera broke. Mattera said these allegations are nothing more than a deflection tactic.

Remember kiddies, it’s not Fascism when Done-While-Democrat!
If BUSH had threatened something like this, the Big networks would all be running hourly updates about the “Chill wind of totalitarianism!” coming from the White House.

Remember that?

Darn apparently the reporter’s timing was a bit off.
What day of the year is our national “Bug Biden Day” anyway.

I really do not want to miss celebrating THAT!

Joe Biden ought to stop plagiarizing people. Ray Lewis said the same thing about the NFL Lockout.

I can still remember my high school social studies teacher explaining to us how our junior senator amassed power by essentially brown-nosing every senior senator he could get his face under.

...and we’re talking to the “can i get you some coffee, Senator,” point!

Leftists (ie, communists) know that exposure is [political] death.

If people understood what their true goals were and what they were willing to do to achieve them, they’d not get 10% of the vote,

and if America were still a moral nation, that figure would be 1%.

Not sure what the number would be if America were still a moral nation, but I’m sure that if the Democrats revealed all, they’d still get at least 20%, (that’s Obama’s floor support for “strongly approve”). And I suspect that number could be as high as 30%. I’m saying I think 30% of Americans would welcome communism.

Maybe I should say a “moral, educated” nation...

kids have been intentionally dumbed down to accept communism.

The communists have literally made this a goal.

It's pretty obvious Joe Biden has rape on his mind big time.

Wonder if his staff is keeping an eye on him or are they going to just turn him loose at one of those "Occupy....." encampments where he can get his first choice in 14 year olds.

“The communists have literally made this a goal.”

I’m totally aware. Nothing is perfect, and that applies to conservatism. Part of what makes conservatives strong, is what has led to this sorry state of our youth.

Conservatives tend to be self reliant. When conservatives recognized that the public school systems were failing, they took alternate routes. Vouchers, private schooling, home schooling. Communists have filled the void of leadership that conservatives once had in our public schools. That gives them access to kids who are, in general, not well parented. A perfect result for the commies.

It’s only going to get worse.

Thus the Obama/Biden Administration reveals itself for the totalitarian operation that it truly is.
