Posted on 02/28/2010 5:51:08 PM PST by steve0
Too little, too late mia culpa. BTW we have an actual copy of McCain's original certificate of live birth. Medial Elites coming to grips about helping elect the worst President(pretender) in HISTORY. "be they Barack Obama or Sarah Palin - can burst upon the national stage and seemingly overnight become candidates for higher office."

Sorry for letting unqualified Obama run amok by failing to vet
Yeah is there a big fat shot against that disease ???
To the most rabid commies, the lights going out would be "proof" of the failure of capitalism (even if the government had 100% control of the entire electric generation and distribution system. Failure to accept reality is the hallmark of the communist supporter.
Obama was vetted, and the press knew exactly what he was all about. They conspired with the Obama campaign to promote the empty suit, anti-american, communist anyway. They succeeded in getting him elected and he proceded into a failure of such epicness, that it is the most epic of all epic failures of all time. And now they are saying “who knew?” LOL!
The MSM is worthless, and epically so.
U. Ben Had, the movie.
Actually he article from the politico link makes a scant mention of Obama as the focus was on Silky Pony. And they mention Sarah Palin in the same line-—I think they LSM vetted Sarah alright to the point of harrasment. As for Obama they still turn a blind eye and a deaf ear!
Now we know that Edwards was a phony in more ways than one,
we know that zero is an imposter in more ways than one
Never mind the bogus title given the politico article posted.
My butt. It only took a week to discover that Carrie Prejean had done a topless photo shoot and had make a sex video of herself. And the Breck Girl™ was running for leader of the free world, not a beauty pageant.
The media is quick to vet:
1. Joe the Plumber taxes
3. Palin (breathing, doing anything)
4. McCain (non-mistress)
6. Congressman (medical malpractice) for daring to speak against the one
7. Anyone who speaks against the “One”
I hardly think Sarah Palin qualifies as “burst upon the scene” when she was already the Governor of a state; mayor of a town; member of her city council.
Obama was only a senator for what .. 14 mos.
They have no comparison.
No, as you said earlier in your post, they are worse than worthless. They work aggressively against our country and for the Communists.
Yeah you have the numbers on that? Wasn’t it like 10s or 100s of more reporters digging dirt than ever checked on Obami Kenyan relatives, Ayers, Dr. John C. Drew, Frank Marshall Davis, and Bernardine Dohrn etc etc? How much money was spent on finding negative info on Palin compared to Obama? Which one was running for Prez.
I’m never watching Blues Clues again! Steve has drunk the Kool-aid!
As one who sat through hundreds of hours of Blue’s Clues with my toddler son, the liberalness of “Steve” comes as not the slightest surprise.
I mention something else about “Steve” that wouldn’t come as a surprise, but that would only be a guess. An educated guess, but a guess all the same.
What’s interesting about the cartoon is this: The liberals always use “projection” - a technique whereby they project upon their enemies what in reality they themselves are doing or have done.
The cartoon was a classic liberal “projection” of what the liberals actually wanted to do. Yes, the cartoon has left a mark already. So prophetic!
Right! The entire article was about Edwards with no mention of Obama. They act as if Obama doesn't exist.
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the title. Thanks.
Vice Presidential candidate Sen. John Edwards was caught visiting his mistress and secret love child at 2:40 this morning in a Los Angeles hotel by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.
Pretty sad when the National Inquirer is more competent than the MSM
They had the megaphone and chose not to use it
Very true, and very sad, huh? May have been only doubts, but we don’t know. Cheney’s “look” shows intense ‘dislike’, to put it mildly.
The truth slowly creeps in like early morning mist
Gotta check for earthquake threads
Think Argentina was last.
Do you know somone in a possible area?
Don’t know anyone there
I’ll check your link now
My knee jerk reaction is YES. Maybe he could have said I am for the Republican team but really anyone but Zero, this guy is evil.
Buchanan, Pres Primary Election, Yes I was treated fairly by media
Cantor, CommieCare summit, Yes we were fairly represented, got a fair shake
McCain, Asked whether he believes hed had unfair media coverage, I don’t think so. I think it is what it is. I’m a big boy. And I’m certainly not complaining. “
Their is a difference between AlGore fighting every decision and stating hey I want you to see how the deck is stacked against conservatives, no?
The Republicans in power don’t stand up and speak out.
That’s why we conservatives are fighting on our own.
Lol, time for me to sign off!
Republicans need to stand up to the media and limit their 99.99% leftie Beltway biased coverage
With FNC and the internet and Sarah Palin at Facebook they can call their own shots
I have never seen that video before, and didn’t know that Steven Burns(who is not notable for anything besides Blue’s Clues, I guess that his few times on Homicide: Life on the Street and Law and Order “count”) had anything to say notable. I’ve never watched Blue’s Clues(aside from YTP’s), nor have I even participated in much knowledge of the show. I used to watch other stuff on Nickelodeon.
That video is typical of the Liberal mentality at that time, and is the only video on that account because Steve’s master is in office right now. But my question to Steve is this: If you liked Obama so much to make a video incorporating his corporate logo at the end, why can’t Obama find you a job? If he did, I am sure that I would hear about it. In fact, why not work for ACORN, Steve? Why not showcase a video of those “mean ole” Republicans blocking everybody’s right to abuse the healthcare system?
Yeah, I wrote that they don’t dont stand up and speak out.
They are on talk shows all the time and have the opportunities to argue against the media.
Valid arguements would get across to the viewers even if the media didn’t agree.
They should tell CBS, NBC, and ANC that if they edit out the raw meat of talk shows Republican politicians appear on that they will all boycott any of their TV appearances
Let CBS, NBC, and ABC then attempt to put on democrat only talk show guests -
Funny, I never thought about it but do you think the Sunday morning talk shows are live or pre-recorded? I don’t think they would edit out on those, do you?
I think many if not all are pre-recorded
Recall that often one guest will appear on CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, FNC - all within a short timespan on the same Sunday
Katie Couric sure recorded and selectively bias-edited her interview on CBS - with Sarah Palin
Charelie Gibson did the same thing at ABC
That’s true. They do appear on several shows in a morning. I still doubt they would edit out much but who knows. I could see it happening in a ‘one on one’ type of interview.
All except FOX and FNC seem to play gotcha or revove or cut for their own agendas
CNN is now seeing it needs to face reality or die
ABC-TV is firing staff by the thousands and shutting down network presence except for local station personnel
Staff abroad has long been cut to the bone - and local stringers or free-lancers used
Yes I’ve read about ABC and I know CNN has started to leak out some facts. Amazing to see that old grouch, Cafferty, tell some truths.
