Kate Calling For Coup?
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/23/2008 7:04:56 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

In an MSM eager for the dawn of the Age of Obama, Kate Snow may have taken the cake. The weekend GMA co-host almost sounded as if she were calling for some kind of coup d'etat, musing whether Obama should do something to "force" change before he officially takes office. How over the top was Snow? She had to be talked down from her fin de regime fantasy but none other than . . . Paul Krugman.

ABC reporter John Hendren set the tone for the notion that time is dangerously a-wasting.

JOHN HENDREN: As with Hoover and FDR, the ideological gap between Bush and Obama could be too broad to bridge, leaving us with two more months of costly economic drift.

A little later, interviewing Krugman, Snow made her stunning suggstion.

All “liberals” are fascists underneath, or not so underneath. This include most of the media and cultural “leaders”.

America is in a world of hurt with the Obambites and their brownshirt minions.

You know it’s pretty bad when Paul Krugman has to remind some one of a Constitution.

I swear Kate Snow and those who think this way have never grasped high school civics and government.

Ppsssttt...Kate...think about this for a few moments if your attention span can allow for it- What would happen to the human body if the skeleton disappeared?

P.S. Kate may have gotten this idea from Gail Collins column this weekend- in which she seriously suggests Bush resign, NOW!

KATE SNOW: "You write a lot in your columns about a power vacuum in these last couple of months of the Bush administration. How concerned are you about that? Do you think President-elect Obama should be doing something now, urgently, as far as forcing policy change?

Obama is not President-elect as of yet.

Oooops, forgot, they don't care about the Constitution.

Ignorance of the Constitution on Display, as well as Who does she thinks does the Legislation in America ? BHO does not Pass Laws, Congress does.
And on Dec. 1st, BHO has to get past the Supreme Court . . and on Dec. 5th, BHO has to get past the Supreme Court again, and then in a few days, the President will be elected by the Electoral College.

Congress is out of session, therefore let it be know throughout the Land, there will be no changes this Month.

I cannot wait for Obama to either be ruled ineligible to hold the office of President, or to be removed through a major scandal. It would be most satisfying.

Does this mean that in Febtruary, the DOW will hit 15000, Peace will encompass the World, there will be no crime in the USA and the Prisons will be empty?

Will we have achieved NIRVANA?

The left thinks they are overthrowing the government. They act like this is 1959 Cuba. The irresponsibility of our press is driving the wedge deeper into what might already be an irreparably divided country.

Yup. Kate and what ARMY plan on routing PRESIDENT BUSH, the current President, from the Oval Office in defiance of the Constitution? These people are delusional.

It is my guess that, if this country has eight years of OBAMA, the current NOT-QUITE PRESIDENT-ELECT YET, by the end of that, many of the present day “journalists” who have worked so hard to make him a shoo-in may well be joining the ranks of the unemployed.

The reason they are in such a hurry for Obama to be sworn in is that they know he is hiding his proof of citizenship.

Yeah, I was talking to some friends about this over the weekend. He is not President Elect until the Electorial College votes for him. I couldnt remember what he is supposed to be called right now. Can anyone tell me?

Exactly, I have been saying this all along.

I guess it will never happen though.

Tom Brokaw on Meet the Press this morning was also repeatedly calling for the overthrow of the government in his interview with Joe Lieberman. Tom lectured me and Joe that George Bush needs to step down now so that Barry can take total control. Tom says that we can’t wait until January.

Tom also lectured me and Joe that we need to apologize for saying things during the campaign that might have been damaging to Barry. When Joe said that he would not apologize, Tom was very unhappy and it was clear that Joe was not pleasing Tom. The network anchorpeople are all rushing to say the right things so that Barry and Paul Krugman are satisfied.

Poor Tom and Kate are not the sharpest tools in the shed. Why aren’t their producers giving them coherent scripts for them to read off the teleprompters. Left to improvise they reveal that they have the logic and temperment of children.
