CNN's Candy Crowley blasts Murtha, Dems for having no plans after Bush speech
CNN | September 5, 2006 | nwrep

Posted on 09/05/2006 12:53:09 PM PDT by nwrep

Appearing after Burkha Murtha's comments to the President's WOT speech this afternoon, CNN Political Analyst Candy Crowley was surprisingly sharp in her fair and balanced analysis of the Democratic response to the speech.

When asked by bathroom queen Kyra Phillips for her opinion on the speech and the Dem response, eye Candy said the Dems continue to have the problem of not having any credible response, nor a plan to fight terrorism. She repeated some of Burkha's angry comments, and said it showed that apart from angry rhetoric denouncing the President, the Dems have nothing to offer.

Its amazing isn't it. The summer hype season is over and campaign season has begun. Suddenly the dem allies in the MSM are discovering that the dems have no agenda and no plan and they realize (unlike the dems) that this is not going to sit well with the voters.

While I'm not going to say she's some kind of closet Republican or get all excited by this, Crowley has been an actual objective journalist more than any MSM reporter I can think of. She's called 'em like she sees 'em on several occassions I've seen. Perhaps it's the frustrated Demo wanting her party to come out swinging, or maybe just objective reporting. But it is refreshing, and its very oddness shows how rarely it's done these days.

The fact that the dems only have Bush is bad to offer is one of the best things going for the republicans this year. That is why I also think we will keep the congress although I am a toss up on whether or not we will lose seats. People maybe mad at teh republicans but they want something substanative to go to, and the rats aren't it.

Nothing to cheer about. In a few hours, she'll be blasting President Bush by regurgitating Harry Reid's comments.

Even the MSM is running out of things for the Dems to say. Murtha watches CNN to see what he should say next. If the MSM does not spoon feed the Dems something to say, they just sit there with that dumb look.

Not really.

While decidely Leftist, the MSM has consistently been more grounded then the Kos kids. That isn't saying much....but it does mean they recognize no plan vs A plan isn't a good election strategy. And Leiberman/Lamont shows that anti-war still doesn't sell well. Whatever the feelings about war, Americans don't want to leave without success and they certainly don't want bloody images of massacres of the Iraqi people if we turn tail and run.

Lisa Myers of NBC News fits into that category of being an objective reporter. Brit Hume was doing that schtick for ABC News long before he landed his current role at FOX News.

Nancy P: Hold on, let me turn on the TV. Well...uhmmm. Let me call Howard and Harry. I'll call you back.

Later....

Nancy P: Jack, Nancy here. Ok, Harry Reid is going to call CNN. Watch the news. He knows what to say next.

Murtha: Thanks, Nancy. That was a close one. We almost got caught not having a plan.

well, I agree with your point about "wanting success". but americans never saw the images of what happened to southeast asia after we left vietnam, and wouldn't see it if the Dems were to regain control and leave iraq.

Or the news today that Chevron found a big pool of oil in the Gulf of Mexico today, capable of producing 15 billion barrels a day.

You think they could bury those images in this media age?

I know they've buried news before, but I'm not quite convinced they could conceal a slaughter of the projected magnitude if we left them defenceless.

IMO, the images would still get out. They'd simply find a way to blame Bush for it, like they did Katrina. Nevermind Miss, Alabama and Texas never had the difficulty LA encountered. The state overrun by Dems in political office.

It does promise to be interesting. Particularly in Houston with Lampson. The only bright side to him is he has left a bad taste in the mouths of many by running to the courts the way he did. That and his district (which I live in) I greatly doubt will reelect him if he wins. 55 to 45 percent republican.

Bush staked out the only responsible ground on terrorism immediately after 9/11 and is unwilling to concede it to this point. Prior to 9/11 the Dems demonized Bush to such a degree, and had thrown so much bloody rhetorical meat to their base, that they couldn't dare approach Bush on any policy, least of all war policy.

So any reasonable position on Iraq will shred any credibility with their base. It's not like they can say, well Devil Bush isn't really so bad - and we must stand with him for the sake of the country. They created a monster and now they have to feed it no matter how stupid and traitorous it makes them look in the process.

If Bush were to go soft on Iraq, the Dems would immediately try to occupy the hawkish territory he abandoned for political advantage, but that ground is radioactive to them while he stands there. They are boxed in on a ludicrous stance, but they can't do anything else.

I know what you are saying, but it is not the media that would bury it. They would never be let in to film it, by the totalitarian fascist governement that would carry such slaughter out.
