CBS: Meet Iran's George W. Bush (Ahmadinejad)
2009, CBS Interactive Inc. All Rights Reserved ^ | June 8 2009 | Laura Secor

Posted on 06/14/2009 10:12:51 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

Ahmadinejad plays to the rural constituency almost exclusively. His own family migrated to Tehran from the provincial village of Aradan, and--as embarrassing as Tehranis find his rural accent, clothes, and demeanor--to villagers, the presence of one of their own in high office is nothing short of empowering. Ahmadinejad has literally handed out money in the provinces, even printing extra currency to do so. He has the undying loyalty of many of these villagers, and he is going to need it.

I thought perhaps you faked the headline because it was hard to imgagine CBS sinking that low.

But you didn’t, and they did.

Ah, another liberal thing. Idiots. Its not OK to be prejudiced against minorites, but it is to be against a whole section of this country’s population?

Another reason to BOYCOTT CBS and it’s sponsors. See the Letterman threads for info on this.

The piece is totally asinine and lacking in facts. President Bush holds degrees from two of the top ivy league universities and his wardrobe is pricey, to say the least:

Bush's Suits Cost $2,000 to $14,000

To lefties, anyone with principles and values must be rural (translation: country hick.)

Typical snipe headline even if it is old. (June 8th)

This election was a fraud from the get go. The Mullahs run Iran and Imanutjob is their man!
The election is a dog and pony show for the west.
Now our Zero, playing along, takes credit for the ‘progress’ in the region from his great speech.

It’s all BS!!!!

That sounds more like BHO. Doesn't sound at all like GWB.

I guess the MSM no longer feels the need to fake it. That's it for CBS, I'll never watch another minute of anything on their network or buy anything advertised on it.

Moonves is driving her network into the ground by running tripe like this. Katie Couric is losing audience. And the majority of the country finds the local news to be more competent than national syndicated news now anyways.

The MSM sinks to a new low. Unbelievable. The guy is out of office and they still cannot leave him alone.

“I thought liberals loved this nutjob?”

Yes. He was important enough to speak at Columbia and to be cheered there. Apparently this piece was written before the writer learned that obama was taking credit for the overturned election...that didn’t happen....It must all be very confusing for the lib journalists who need to prop up obama (and continue to snipe at W) every step of the way.

CBS is just pandering to their crazy audience. Here is a CBS fan's reply:

Comparing him to a clueless, purposely stupid war criminal is such an embarrassment for Ahminijad The president of Iran actually won election fairly and squarely. He did not start two unnecessary wars based on lies and threaten many more. He did not order torture and illegal spying and Americans to go kill women and children for the oil companies.

Congratulations on uncovering one of the year's most stunning displays of ignorance.

On the other hand, it was admittedly a novel way to do some Bush-bashing.

In ‘79 the left cheered on the Islamic Revolution in Iran and now they have the gall to associate a Khomeinist like Achmadinijad with us?
