Skip to comments.Mitchell Hails Success of 'Obama Doctrine,' Palin's Wallace-Like Appeal 'Does Frighten Me'
Posted on 12/27/2009 4:38:19 PM PST by raybbr
As the lone journalist on Sunday's Meet the Press roundtable (with Newt Gingrich, Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick), NBC's Andrea Mitchell insisted the Obama Doctrine has borne fruit, but it is not perceived yet -- though the President has already united the world behind the United States.
Citing all those who camped out for the Sarah Palin book signings, Mitchell denigrated her appeal as evidence of how they are so hungry for a symbol for anyone who can give them answers it shows there's an anger out there she hasn't seen since George Wallace in 1968. And that, she maintained, is the angry populism which is not fact-based, it's just furious at everybody; angry at Democrats, at Republicans. (Apparently, favoring conservative policies and rejecting liberal big government spending is not fact-based.)
Ruing the tea party has higher numbers in our last NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll than either of the other traditional parties, Mitchell, NBC's chief foreign affairs correspondent and host of MSNBC's weekday 1 PM EST hour, declared that does frighten me. While she acknowledged this spirit of America is so large and embracing, she feared there is an angry subtext because of economic dislocation that is very, very worrisome.

I actually was looking for Bloomberg's quotes from this round table.
This is what I was looking for:
BLOOMBERG: Well, the economy has certainly turned around. Its stopped going down and its slowly coming back, and itll be a long time before we get to where we were three years ago. But you talk about the last decade, and, and Andrea brought up 9/11 as sort of the defining moment of that decade. There are two things that we did not work on and, in fact, one have gone the wrong direction during the last decade, which will dictate the economy for the next decade, and thats immigration and education.
BLOOMBERG: And education -- and Newts been out there campaigning around the country. The president says its number one priority for him, hes got Arne Duncan , whos a great secretary of Education, working on it. But unless we give our young people the kind of education to compete in the global world, we cannot survive...
PATRICK: Hear, hear.
BLOOMBERG: ... certainly cant survive with the -- with the kind of jobs we want, with the benefits we want for our people.
And immigration, were committing what I call national suicide. Somehow or other, after 9/11 we went from reaching out and trying to get the best and the brightest to come here, to trying to keep them out. In fact, we do the stupidest thing, we give them educations and then dont give them green cards.
Somehow Bloomberg got "immigration reform" mixed in with the the insurance reform bill.
The liar. You know, the one NBC didn’t want to testify at the Scooter Libby trial. So they sent their attorney to sit behind Patrick Fitzgerald.
Poor Andrea..hey Andrea, hows your hubby Greenspan doing..why don’t you go and ask HIM the tough questions you jerk!
All she needs are whiskers and a tail. The perfect DemocRAT.
This is such ripe material for EL Rushbo, too bad he is on vacation!!
Umm, but that “Ayers appeal” and “Rev. Wright” appeal and that “Mao appeal” DON’T frighten you, you jackass???
I don't entirely disagree with Bloomberg on this part. We are being idiotic when we educate that world's brightest minds who are invited here to enjoy the best education available, then we kick them out out of some misplaced fear of competition - while at the same time allowing the dumbest of the dumb to pour into our country unabated through our US/Mexican border.
He makes a valid point about keeping the talent that we've educated, but he forgets the other salient part of the equation. We should retain those who graduate from US schools, especially those graduating with advance science & engineering degrees. If those people are encouraged to return to India and China, it only hurts us in the long run.
Maybe ask this guy...
MSNBC is the perfect toilet for that fagged-out old scumbag Mitchell.
Oh yeah, try to associate Sarah Palin with George Wallace...nice try, Mrs. Greenspan!
So how many times did Governor Palin stand in front of schools doors to block black students from entering?
So we now know the focus groups didn’t react well to ongoing Nazi references, but Wallace must work as a code-word for racist...
Slobberring worse than usual, even for her.
A dumb fungus.
I am going to take that quote, translate it into Japanese and Chinese and show it to all my friends in Tokyo today. Maybe I will take a camera and get their facial reactions.
Man... that would be a HOOT!!!!
Andrea is another over-the-hill witch who’s jealous of Sarah, just like Martha Stewart and the gaggle of other democrat geese.
IIRC, Wallace was from a different political persuasion and party...
LOL! She passed menopause 3 face lifts ago.
The depth of the ugliness of the soul of an evil woman like Adrea Mitchell, will always come through in her eyes. 'nuff said.
