Inside Politics -- Not so 'undecided'
Washington Times ^ | November 21, 2007 | Greg Pierce

Posted on 11/21/2007 7:22:16 AM PST by 3AngelaD

All six "undecided voters" who questioned Democratic presidential candidates during Thursday night's debate on CNN have been identified as Democratic activists, according to directorblue.blogspot.com. CNN had touted the "undecided" questioners as "ordinary people," but they actually were a Democratic Party bigwig, an antiwar activist, a union official, an Islamic leader, a staffer for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and a radical Hispanic separatist....

That's like CNN forgetting to mention that one of their debate analysts, James Carville, is a member of Hillary's campaign staff.

Maybe they could just state that XXX-42 is a "former president" when they bring him on as a debate analyst in the general election.

So does Doug Ross at: www.directorblue.blogspot.com. He has the details. Such as, LaShannon Spencer, "Ordinary citizen randomly selected" participant in the Democratic debate, of whom Doug writes,

"CNN identified her only as a member of the First African Methodist Church and not as a director of political affairs for the Democratic Party of Arkansas. Spencer was also associated with the Kerry-Edwards campaign and a member of the Arkansas Democratic Delegation in 2004. But she's just another ordinary citizen, just like you or me." Snort.

And I forgot to say we should, never, never forget what sacks of very bad stuff are in charge at CNN. I never believe a word said there without independent confirmation. If CNN said the sun rises in the East, I would get up early to make sure. Rush Limbaugh had a very funny piece about the CNN and the DNC calling Wolf Blitzer and offering to let him have his private parts back. As if.

Like Rush has been saying for a long time, the MSM just cannot get away with this kind of stuff anymore, but they’re too stupid to realize it. Still.

OK, that last part about stupid was my own observation, but it’s true nevertheless!

I cannot stand those debates in the general election where they have undecided voters ask questions. Not one of them comes from what sounds like a conservative background. Most of them ask what is government going to do for me. The Republican candidate is always put at a disadvantage. In fact I am surprised the GOP agrees to these debate formats time after time. It will be the same in 2008. I don’t like the single moderator system either, but that is another topic.

I also change the channel as soon as they have “focus” groups come on, or panels of so-called undecided voters. Many of them just sound like they are not too bright. And if they still are undecided despite the clear choices presented to them, I say they should stay home on election day.

LOL, it’s a glitch in the FR software I would venture to guess.

You know, the ol’ computers have a mind of their own scenario.

The other day I saw it in a headline for a thread. BUMP this thread!

Well that may not be exactly true. LaShannon Spencer may be undecided about which democRAT she is going to support...so she’s still an “undecided”

I understand that when the average person thinks “undecided voter” that it means that even Lyndon LaRouch has a chance in their mind. That they have not chosen a party or a candidate.

When it comes to CNN, Vin Gupta (InfoUSA polling) and the Clintons it is one big incestuous family.

That is exactly why it is so misleading. There is a big difference among being “undecided,” an “undecided” rank and file Dem, and an “undecided” Democratic party official and activist - from Arkansas, no less.

Doubtful. VERY doubtful. She was involved in Arkansas DEM politics up to her eyeballs beginning back in 1990, and so she's tied to the hip with the Clintons!

Looks like a purely random selection of ordinary Leftists in the Dem party to me.

They’re simply undecided about which leftist to vote for.

And it’s evident that CNN doesn’t know where to find any other kind of voter or pundit.
