Tea Party Win Shows Voters in a Mood for Vengeance (Chrissy Matthews is deeply saddened!)
Newsweek ^ | September 15, 2010 | Howard Fineman

Posted on 09/15/2010 6:17:26 PM PDT by neverdem

Democrats are trying to convince themselves the GOP is hopelessly divided, but that’s wishful thinking.

Christine O'Donnell's win against moderate Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware is the culmination of a growing anti-establishment feeling among Republicans.

Nothing like getting outside the Beltway—even if only by driving up I-95 to Delaware. Because what I heard at a little polling place in Newark, Dela., told me, even before the day's election results were in, exactly what to expect in November:

An earthquake.

President Obama, meanwhile, is behaving like a guy unsure of which way to run as buildings collapse around him.

Two instructive things happened yesterday, and the contrast between them was even more instructive:

Finemann keeps writing like this and he can kiss Keith Olbermann’s mindless show goodbye.

Obama told the students to study hard. Why?

If these students work hard, succeed, and get high-paying, good jobs as a result of their hard work, the democrats will tax the hell out of these students and demonize them at the same time.

Talk about mixed signals.

Too late.

We the people said no to government takeover and rationing of healthcare and many other things.

On Christmas eve, Nancy Pelosi put it through. Death panels, bailouts, 787 Billion dollars that bought 9.6% unemployment. Oil spills, complicit media hiding it and the damage that was done, and cheerleading the Socialists Democrats beyond the pale....

They ALL forgot, we are a self governed people. We will no longer be dictated to. We are fed up with being manipulated.

TOO LATE.

YOU FIRED

We told you. We even asked CAN YOU HEAR US NOW

Imagine how utterly obvious it must be for a Dem hack like Fine Man to see the coming bloodbath. These beltway fools only respond to blunt instruments hitting them between the eyes.

Apparently, Fine Man got slugged real good in DE.

“I wanted to vote for her, but I found out that there were too many questions.”

Too many questions? I'd rather have too many questions than too many confirmed acts from guy who's voted against our interests time after time. I don't understand this kind of reasoning on this woman's part.

Heck no. The White Hut staff needs to stay “smart” as they are. Get that oval office rug fixed and handle Barak’s parties and golfing plans.

Christine’s famous “baggage” would fit easily under a seat in coach. It’s her Dim opponent who has some heavy baggage, and now she is getting the funds to give it an airing.

What is this about O ‘Donnel’s “baggage”? She's running for the Biden seat, last held by a caught red-handed plagiarizer.
And so what if she was late with her college loans. Many ordinary Americans—although not the likes of backstabber Rove’s kids—are. And why do we even KNOW about her college loans: three people were prosecuted and convicted by the Justice Department for just looking at ZERO’s college loan records. Yet it is fair that O'Donnell’s be published everywhere? Congress is full of Democrat crooks: Tax cheat Rangel, bribe taker Dodd, land speculator Reid,the entire Black Caucus. And the Administration is riddled with tax cheats like Sebelius and Geitner. O'Donnell is pure as the driven snow compared to many Democrats.

Step 1: Take the Congress.
Step 2: Take the presidency
Step 3: Put Churchill’s bust back in the White House.

I saw the first 10 of the last 15 minutes of Hairball.

If it is on later in a replay, don’t miss the last 15 or so minutes (I’m gonna dvr the whole thing).

Lil’Chrissy tried REPEATEDLY to get David Corn on record to monetarily back up his “Christine won’t win” mantra.

Corn stammered and stuttered worse than Zero without his telepromter. He finally refused to bet.

It is worth the watch to see Chrissy in non-tingle mode for a change.

” Right now the data say voters don’t like the stimulus, don’t like the health-care law, don’t understand the financial-reform measure.”

...this clown completely misses the public resentment over Obama’s attacks on Arizona...Tea Party candidates need to pound that issue over and over in October.

Props to Fineman for a change - he did what most of them won’t, drove outside the Beltway and got an earful from the locals. Journalists used to do that. These days they spend their time in makeup.

Precisely. When a commie tool like Fineman can tell that the Tea Party is lashing out at both the RINOs and the Dems, you’d think more of the pundocracy would be able to see it clearly.

This is not a good piece by Fineman. It still all goes back to the mantra that “Americans are throwing a tantrum”.
“I wrote in NEWSWEEK last week that the health-care law was a loser. Well, it’s the president’s job to prove me wrong—and I think it can be done.”
He is subtly telling the readers that the law is good. Obama just cannot articulate it to voters.
“People are so angry and frustrated that they will lash out at the only big shots they control: not the banks, not Wall Street, not China, not the Beltway media, but elected officials.

How can Obama and Dems survive? Well, it’s OK, and necessary, to attack the likely GOP leadership’s agenda. They really do want to steer Social Security toward the private sector; they do want to let the wealthy keep all of their many tax cuts; and they really are hypocritical about earmarks and spending.”
More crap from Fineman. This is an article designed to tell people that “the dems might be bad, but the conservatives are so much worse. Please be calm America and do the right thing”.
These a-holes write one article every 6 months like this to prove they are not “bias”. Of course tomorrow it will be right back to the DNC talking points.

I’ve noticed this about Fineman before. He’s a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, no doubt, but he has this problem...

He keeps going out of the liberal bubble and talks to actual people, like journolists did of Old. This messes him up and puts him off his game.

Makes him a bit more interesting to read, though.

"Imagine how utterly obvious it must be for a Dem hack like Fine Man to see the coming bloodbath. These beltway fools only respond to blunt instruments hitting them between the eyes."

I think there's more to it. Darryl Issa, if not just pandering, has said (paraphrased from my viewpoint)to be preparing portfolios for investigation wrt corruption. If true, might I suggest starting with exemptions for American Samoa and other territories for certain labor laws (i.e., Nancy Pelosi).

It would be great if Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, and some others had their rocks overturned as well.

And Soros? Well, Russia wants him, and for just this once I wouldn't mind seeing someone extradited to Russia.

O.K. FReepers, tell me; will people like this lady vote for Christine in the General Election? I say: Bet your booty she will.

Democrats are trying to convince themselves the GOP is hopelessly divided, but that’s wishful thinking.
Speaking of wishful thinking, for his own political future, Obama's gambling all on facilitating a "peace" "treaty" between the completely powerless bogus wing of the PA and the nation of Israel. Thank neverdem.

I saw Chrissy Matthews actually not spin Christine the other day. He was claiming the legitimacy of the tea party and that America is tired of it. I WAS SHOCKED.

I suppose now he got new talking points as all the dems have is to demonize personal attack and claim the GOP is split but in relity it is the DNC party that is in bad bad shape.I suspect they will think Hillary and Bill will save all which makes me sick to my stomache.
