Former Time Reporter Says RNC Strip-Club Bill Somehow Worse Than Illegal Straw Donations.
Newsbusters.org ^ | 4/2/2010 | Tim Graham

Posted on 04/04/2010 1:15:08 PM PDT by Randy Larsen

Former Time White House correspondent (and Carter administration appointee) Margaret Carlson really wants RNC chairman Michael Steele fired. In her Bloomberg News column on Wednesday, she badly exaggerated: "In the world of fundraising scandals, this one makes former Vice President Al Gore’s visit to a Buddhist temple look as quaint as tea at Buckingham Palace."

Margaret Carlson is probably jealous that some Republican gals got to go to a Lesbian Themed Hollywood bar, and she didn’t.

Carlson is nothing more than a political hack. The RNC case involves personal indescetion and the Algore case involved political corruption.

I don't buy that.

Agree, Maggie, you are yelling FIRE in a not so crowded theatre.

Ha! Most of the rest of us want him fired too, along with the rest of the RNC clowns. Donate to individual Republicans, not the RNC.

I'm glad you brought that up, Margaret. That was a really bad infraction by the VP of the United States, wasn't it? But if I recall correctly, there was "no controlling precedent." Good thing for Al Gore, because if there had been, he'd probably still be in jail.

She wants to cover the fact that this is the most corrupt Congress in American history.

Yup, they need to change the subject and keep the focus off what a pos obammy and his handlers are.

Where were these “journalists” when obammy was taking in millions through prepaid credit cards?

Bernie Goldberg in “Bias”:

(page 148): Still, Nina Burleigh, Carole Simpson and even my ex-colleague Leslie Stahl all take a backseat when it comes to painting Hillary’s toenails. They are all runners-up in the “How May I Serve You, My Queen?” Sweepstakes. Because none of them—not even Newsweek contributing editor Eleanor “Rodham” Clift—can rival Margaret Carlson, who does commentary for TIME magazine (and is a regular on CNN’s Capital Gang) for sheer devotion to Ms. Hillary. If they gave out Nobel Prizes for Hillary-gushing, Margaret Carlson would be on her way to Stockholm”

“As much as we try to think otherwise, when you’re covering someone like yourself, and your position in life is insecure, she’s your mascot. Something in you roots for her. You’re rooting for your team. I try to get that bias out, but for many of us it’s there.”
— Time Senior Writer Margaret Carlson talking about covering First Lady Hillary Clinton, as quoted in the Washington Post, March 7, 1994.

Mouse Carlson has never been guilty of letting the facts get in the way of a good propaganda piece.

She must be really stupid. If Steele gets fired they might find someone more effective.

We have lost our national sense of perspective for at least two reasons: (1) The mainstream media has abandoned any shred of objectivity and has become a cheerleader for liberalism (and now socialism). (2) The public schools have become the liberals’ tool for the advancement of their causes. Those two factors have left us with a public incapable of sorting out the facts and issues.

While she's beating up on Republican “family values” hyprocritcs, let's get to work on the millionaire Democrat's “social/economic justice” hypocrisy.

[Taiwan-born Maria Hsia . . .long time fund raiser for Al Gore. . .and business associate of John Huang and James Riady since 1988, facilitated $100,000 in illegal campaign contributions through her efforts at Hsi Lai Temple, a Chinese Buddhist temple in Hacienda Heights, California. This money went to the DNC, to the Clinton - Gore campaign, and to Patrick Kennedy. After a trial, she was convicted in March 2000. . .((The DNC)eventually returned the money donated by the Temple’s monks and nuns. Twelve nuns and employees of the temple, including the temple’s abbess, refused to answer questions by pleading the Fifth. . . Two other Buddhist nuns admitted destroying lists of donors and other documents related to the controversy. . .A Temple-commissioned videotape of the fund raiser also went missing and the nuns’ attorney claimed it may have been shipped off to Taiwan. . .]

“I did not know that it was a fund-raiser. But I knew it was a political event, and I knew there were finance people that were going to be present, and so that alone should have told me, ‘This is inappropriate and this is a mistake; don’t do this.’ And I take responsibility for that. It was a mistake.” — Vice President Al Gore on NBC TV’s Today show, Jan. 24, 1997

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_United_States_campaign_finance_controversy#John_Huang_and_James_Riady

HUANG WAS ONE OF SEVERAL DNC “FUNDRAISERS” IDENTIFIED AS AN AGENT OF COMMUNIST CHINA. THE LAUNDERED CAMPAIGN CASH WAS INTENDED TO AFFECT THE 1996 ELECTION AND BUY FAVORS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION SUCH AS CLASSIFIED TECHNOLOGY. JOHN KERRY AND TOM DASCHLE BOTH WERE FORCED TO RETURN TAINTED CONTRIBUTIONS. THE HOUSE INVESTIGATION PROBABLY ONLY EXPOSED THE TIP OF A MASSIVE OPERATION INVOLVING ESPIONAGE, BRIBERY AND TREASON. “JOURNALISTS” LIKE CARLSON ARE EQUALLY CORRUPT.

I’d like to see Steele fired as well, but for different reasons.

"Former Time Reporter Says RNC Strip-Club Bill Somehow Worse ..."

"Somehow worse", Margaret? What the hell is "somehow worse"?

Please tell us - without being partisan and revengful for your buddy Gore at the Buddhist temple - how it is worse?

Oh, oh...wait...don't tell me...it's worse because you and your ilk are looking under rocks for a way to discredit the TEA party movement...but, sorry...the TEA party movement has nothing to do with the GOP.

So Maggie, ol' gal...if it's bad enough to do all this writing and hinting of impropriety, why don't you get the AG to file election fraud charges? Yeah. That's the ticket...that'll make you immortal amongst thievest.

Do it, Maggie, do it. Please do it. We need all the episode of you dems stepping into $#!+ over your heads we an get.

The kenyan owes you one...a big one.

Surely, you jest.

Liberals simply don't indict other liberals.

[Article] In the world of fundraising scandals, this one makes former Vice President Al Gore’s visit to a Buddhist temple look as quaint as tea at Buckingham Palace.

Really? As quaint as PLA Intelligence reptiles crawling all over the White House and helping themselves to nuclear warhead designs? Like Chinese gunrunners having coffee with the President? You mean like that, Margaret?

Carlson is such a Hive Mind snore.

Also, see what you get when you metasearch on he name of Pauline Kanchanalak. She was a Thai businesswoman/agent in the same web of relationships tying Clinton-Gore to the Chinese BuDer (defense intelligence agency). Ted Soeung was another name in that web.

That would explain what McCain is, along with a lot of the rest of the GOP.

Are you freaking kidding me Margaret, you lying sack of filth? The guy was canned immediately and it was private money; none which was illegally raised by a sitting VP.

Carlson may well have wished that. But it was Nina Burleigh who gave voice to the perverse idea.
