My Opinion as to why journalists are REALLY going all-out left this election cycle
Investors.com ^ | 08/03/12 | Douglas Mackinnon

Posted on 08/23/2012 3:29:25 PM PDT by austinaero

Douglas McKinnon teases us with "That said, in off-the-record conversations with my left-leaning journalistic friends, not one believes Obama is going to win re-election. Not one. While most believe Mitt Romney to be a weak candidate, they are still convinced that he will comfortably defeat Obama on Nov. 6.

These liberal and jaded journalists privately admit that Obama has been exposed for what he is: an overhyped, self-invented candidate with no real-world experience who has been frozen into inaction by the enormity of the office he holds."

KEYWORDS: bias; journalist; liberal; msm
Could the normally left-leaning press be leaning even MORE left in order to cover up their secret belief that Obama is going to lose?

Well, let’s see . . . the idiot and very overweight “Burst Lady” said that Obamboozle’s supporters must show up November 2 to vote for him.

Since November 2 is a Saturday, then I won’t mind if they vote then. I just wonder which of the 57 states are doing their voting on Friday.

they simply don't care what it looks like anymore and have dropped even the slightest pretense of non-biased reporting... kneepads replaced as needed

many of the questions prepared for Obama in the three debates are pretty predictable.
Mr President: What did you have for breakfast this morning, or maybe, Mr President, if you were a tree,what kind of tree would it be...and Mr President,,Do you hang your toilet paper on the front or back of the roll?

She meant get the absentee ballot in on Nov 2, and then vote again in person on election day.

Its the Chicago way....dead relatives collect entitlements and still vote.

They will be a little more subtle:

“What would you do to protect women’s reproductive rights?”

“What would you do to keep the economic recovery going?”

“How will you maintain our excellent standing in the world, and with our allies?”

The very questions will pre-suppose a leftist and pro-Obama point of view.

I'm sure that Obamboozler doesn't need toilet paper . . . probably has toilet cloth to wipe the Royal Sphincter that neatly goes into a hamper.

That's an interesting thesis, but the typical happy-talk television "news" personalities aren't capable of that kind of in-depth analysis. They don't have that knowledge because they don't have much in the way of self-knowledge.

Obama has no domestic policy to speak of. He has no foreign policy to speak of. He has no jobs program to speak of. His signature health care plan is driving doctors out of the field, crippling small businesses and putting thousands of Americans out of work.

I'm pretty sure Obama has some kind of policy, foreign or domestic. Those domestic policies aren't working to bring the economy back. That's why Obama, the Democrats, and the media are going all out this time. Clinton had a decent economy and could win handily based on employment figures. Obama doesn't, so he's going to use every trick in the book to pull it out this time.

I’m really getting tired of this slander of obama!

If you listen to what he said he clearly indicated he had one more to go. So obviously he believes there are 58 states not 57! Give him a break!

Sheesh!

I see . . . when he said 57 states, he meant 57 flavors of Theresa Heinz company. And you can't divide 57 by 2, so it's crackers to slip the rozzer, the dropsy in the snide. But then, so does Grandma.

He is such a confusing illegal alien, isn't he?

“What would you do to keep the economic recovery going?”

That's exactly the type of question that will be asked. They'll start from a false premise that is pro-Obama and build on that. The correct answer would be something like, "There currently isn't an economic recovery, you idiot." ;-)

I believe that they know 0bama will suffer the largest defeat ever by an incumbent president running for re-election.
They are doing whatever they can to soften the blow.

For distribution throughout the messiah's church as prayer cloths.

Sorry. Too good to pass up. Do I get a ZOT or just a delete?

Let's be honest.

The democrats and the MSM are evil; just evil.

They are anti-God, anti-Christ, pro-abortion monsters who lie and cheat and do whatever they need to do to bring about as much evil as they can for their master, the devil.

Period.

“Mr. President: Just how wonderful are you? “

Or how about the question from the SNL sketch “Do you want a pillow?”

It was a code addressed to his coreligionists, saying that he was going to make US number 58 (eventually).

Neil Munro of the “Daily Caller” had an interesting take on why so many journalists lean so far left on C-Span today - He said “it’s all about them” - not so much that they support liberals per se, but that liberals and ‘rats are the people who support big government and big government leads to many more interesting stories than what ‘pubs claim to be seeking - smaller government, more local control, and consequently less big-time excitement and involvement for the reporters - makes sense......

I think this is right, but not he whole story. They have been demonizing R/R and jimmying polls so that WHEN Romney wins, like Bush in 2000 he will be viewed at least in some circles as illegitimate. It would help undermine the entire GOP agenda.
