MSNBC's Shuster: Tancredo a Border-Control 'Fanatic'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/13/2007 2:57:09 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

In the most florid criticism I can recall a network "correspondent" leveling at a major party presidential candidate, MSNBC's David Shuster has branded Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) a border-control "fanatic."

The editorializing came in the course of Shuster's report during today's 5 PM ET "Hardball," which included an update on the GOP primary.

DAVID SHUSTER: No television commerical in Iowa is generating as much heat as the one just unveiled by Republican Tom Tancredo, a border-control fanatic.

Border Control Fanatic Bump

David Shuster is the second biggest dick on cable. Everyone needs to call and write letters complaining. No emails. They will be ignored, but letters and calls must be recorded and kept on file for the FCC.

Tancredo has a campaign commercial that is making the rats and illegal apologists squirming. It’s pretty good.

Tancredo’s Fanaticism:
* secure our borders and ports
* stop all visas to nations that sponsor terrorism
* arrest and deport any alien who preaches violence and hatred
* prosecute those who provide sanctuary to anyone who would harm us
* deport all those who do not belong here
* put the military on the border if necessary, to keep them from coming back.


Here’s how David Shuster wants it:
* secure some of our borders and ports
* stop all American Express cards used by citizens of nations that sponsor terrorism, but allow visas.
* arrest and deport one out of every 62 aliens who preaches violence and hatred
* do not, under any circumstances, prosecute those who provide sanctuary to anyone who would harm us
* deport all those who do not belong here (of course, everyone who is here, by definition, belongs here)
* put the military on the border if necessary, to keep vigilantes from denying access to illegal immigrants

Somebody should ask Shuster if he takes pains to secure his valuables. If not, then “what’s your address?”.

In other words, if you want the Border controlled and to maintain American Culture and Identity, you’re a fanatic.

The ad strikes me as akin to LBJ’s anti-Goldwater ad, showing a nuclear mushroom cloud. Tommy hasn’t been getting any traction, so he resorts to this.

I watched the Tancredo ad, and it starts "I'm Tom Tancredo and approved this ad, and someone has to say it.

Sorry but Tancredo is the epitomie of smug, giving hillary a run for her money in smugness and hubris.

Basically the ad is all about him and it turns me off and it also looks like it is turning off GOP primary voters.

Republican Tom Tancredo, a border-control fanatic.

We need more "border-control fanatics" like Tancredo. I guess I'm in good company with Tancredo.

I suppose we can call Shuster, Olberdork, Chrissy Matthews, and their ilk “open borders fanatics”

Why is Shuster still on the air, anyway?? He proved so dishonest and incompetent throughout Plamegate that he should never be allowed near a “news” program again..... even if it is just the frauds from PMSNBC.

Uh, yeah David. He IS a border control fanatic. There’s about 300 million more of him where he came from—that place being America. You remember that country, right?

Memo to “mister” Shuster: We need many, many more border control “fanatics” leading this country. Rep. Tancredo is right on! You, “mister” Shuster, can kindly go kiss a porcupine!
