Tonight, the really big winner in the Wisconsin recall election is President Obama, MSNBC host Lawrence ODonnell said at the top of his Tuesday program after parent network NBC called the race for Gov. Scott Walker over Democrat Tom Barrett.
Over the past several months, the left-leaning hosts at MSNBC have put a lot of emphasis on the Wisconsin recall, saying it was important for current Walker to be defeated in order to maintain the American middle class.
John Heilemann, I said at the top of the show that President Obama big winner tonight because in the exit polls we saw today that, they were asked, Who would you for president today? ODonnell explained. Fifty-three percent in Wisconsin, 53 percent say President Obama. Only 42 percent say Mitt Romney. That is if not the recall outcome that outcome for President Obama has to be very encouraging.
Later in the program, ODonnell said he was basing his declaration off the exit polling for the Wisconsin recall, which some have said leaves much to be desired.
Heilemann took the unconfirmed exit polling data and called it very encouraging.
Very encouraging, Lawrence, and something that the campaign in Chicago sent out as a news release as soon as the earliest exit polls showing the president with the lead came through. They think that Wisconsin is a state thats pretty solid for them. Its been blue for a long time.

Spin, spin, spin. I wish they would just report news. They should take the word “news” out of every broadcast they do, and just call it the “MSNBC Show.”

Unfortunately for Obama, the biggest losers of the night were the exit polls.
Mark Levin is right... they really are MS-LSD.
Let me get this straight ... the exit polling, which said the race was too close to call, is what they put their stock in for evidence of support for Obama? It’ logic like that that has this country in shambles.
What a novel idea.
Liberals are a lot like Clipper fans “Hey at least we didnt lose by 30” LOL..stupid MSLSD..liberalism, it IS a mental illness
Just think of what a great victory it will be for Obama when Romney wins in Nov!
Walker, wins by 7%.
Kleefisch wins by 6%
All four recalled senate seats win.
Therefore: Obama wins!!!
Pretty weak, if you ask me.
Those sore losers on TV tonight are going to blow it for their messiah if the ‘RATS keep their promise to try to “indict” Governor Walker. The electorate is only going to take so much bull**** and right now, I don’t think they are in the mood for anymore ‘RAT sh*t.
Better solution. Don't watch them. It seems that those who 'give' us the news started lying the day Gutenberg invented the printing press. They lie, lie, lie, and take the side of those who give them the most money. They sell influence to the politicians (ruling elite).
I was watching some 'faces' on the teevee thing talking about the Wisconsin voting. I was rather entertained by their delivery. Both stuttered, hemmed and haahed. They made it obvious they knew they were lying through their teeth, trying to read the teleprompter. It was some pretty bad acting, and that is the real point. The news is 'acting'. It's done by 'producers' and 'script writers' and 'actors'. It's how they make money. They make the most money off of 'dirty laundry'.
MSNBC is beyond satire.
lmao. I know, like it just dawned on them. What a Homer that Wolf is. Dooh!
Good evening, I’m Lawrence O’Donnell,
and today is November 6th, 2012.
Big win for 0bama today, folks.
Yes, he lost the presidential election
to challenger Mitt Romney, but the exit
polls all show that Mr. 0bama is well-
. The electorate is only going to take so much bull**** and right now, I dont think they are in the mood for anymore RAT sh*t.
Since the pre-vote polls showed Walker with barely a 3 point lead, I suspect people have gotten wise to how data is collected and are now saying they voted for people when they didn’t.
Similarly, I think a lot of people are not answering any of the polls correctly. ROTFLOL!!!
And .. they think we’re stupid.
Don’t worry, I never watch them. But I still wish they would report news instead of lying and spinning as they do. Because other people watch them. At least viewership is declining, maybe some others are catching on.
This is delicious!
They admit that a press release
to the same effect was sent out
by the White House.
You just can’t fix stoopit....
It’s not just a river in Egypt (that would have to be “de Nile”).
It was delicious watching Lawrence ODoodlehead scowl while announcing Scott Walker the winner. RachelMadcow was also a beyotch scowling and blaming republicans....They both suck. Can’t wait till they join obamao,s unemployment line.
Which one did they take the red or blue acid, obviously they think they are having a good trip....
White House to state-run media: Give it your best spin.
The Exit poll was wrong about Walker (an actual fact) and right about the November election (speculation)?
And here I thought Ed Shultz and Madcow were the big winners.....
Lawrence O’Donnell’s statement a textbook example of ‘whistling past the graveyard’. Either that, or he’s in a pathological state of denial.
You can bet your last dollar that they aren’t feeling so confident at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue tonight. This will probably push the Obama camp to make some desperate moves to save him.
Exit polls are notoriously unreliable. The networks were sure John Kerry was going to defeat George W. Bush, because that’s what the exit polls were telling them.
The newspapers, TV, the internet... all covered by the same legal principle.
Which is latin for 'empty cave'. Meaning, if you buy a cave full of gold, and then later find out the gold isn't in there, it's your fault for not checking.
(Sorry, I made that all up)
So... their success is based on you just accepting whatever they tell you, lie or truth, and not change the dial. Your success is based on consulting multiple sources to sort the wheat from the chaff.
Most of the time, success is on 'their' side, mainly due to large flows of cash.
I like how they over look the fact that the exit polls were wrong.
I was thinking more Baghdad Bob.

Another monitor covered with coffee.
Wisconsin voters thought they were being asked “who is the President?”
52% rePlied that S o B oBummer
I was watching something on MSNBC a couple of weeks ago and as they were coming out of a commercial break, they put up a station identifier graphic with the words “Lean Foreward”. The next night, I saw the same thing. I know that they are in the sack with ole jug ears but to use JE’s campign slogan was simply way too much to take. It adds to the confirmation that the LSM is totally and without a doubt, in lock step with THE 1. Sickening!
