Posted on 08/02/2007 9:22:23 AM PDT by george76
Sen. Charles Schumer is a legendary pursuer of television cameras. But look at the way the national media are covering Schumer's heavy-breathing pursuit to make Attorney General Alberto Gonzales cry uncle and resign. It makes you wonder just how hard Schumer has to work to get press attention. The media appear Schumer-owned and operated.
One interview really captures how the press acts more like a Democratic goon squad than nonpartisan observers of the national scene. On ABC's "Good Morning America," news anchor Christopher Cuomo, son of Mario Cuomo, asked this pushy question on July 27: "Is Alberto Gonzales out of a job at end of business today?"
Cuomo wanted the attorney general whacked, and he wanted it now. He was asking the question to George Stephanopoulos, the former Clinton lie-spinner. At least George bluntly explained the game: The Democrats' price for confirming a new attorney general would be "very, very high."
The Democrats are trying to set up a game of damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't, and most of the liberal media are playing along with them, refusing to cover the naked politics of it. If our political press were truly nonpartisan, they might be pushing Schumer back about his record: a partisan double-standard for truth-bending politicians and Cabinet officers, and a sudden hunger for a special prosecutor after years of opposing the same under a Democratic regime.
Start at the top. How many Senate Democrats voted to remove Bill Clinton from office for lying under oath in a sexual-harassment investigation? Did they favor special prosecutors then...?

I don't think he can help it either....
He likely caught it from Jabberin' Joe Biden.
Just your typical, know-it-all New Yorker.
Do not get between Charles Schumer and the television cameras...
“Schumer has never held a job other than being a politician. The guy has been in politics since he graduated from Harvard Law. “
Like the majority of Democrat Senators.
Oh, heavens, no! I value my life...
He would run over you...
His father owned a hardware store and he says he spent his childhood watching his father anxious until he eventually went out of business. He went into politics for a steady paycheck.
His life desire is security and he does everything he can to destroy the engine that provides it for him.
Last weekend, the MSM was predicting Gonzales would be out by Tuesday.
It is lucky for Chucky that we work hard to pay taxes so he can leech on us.
When we retire, these leeches will really start to complain.
I am surprised that Gonzales has lasted this long.
The next Senate battle for a new Attorney General will be very bloody.
