Chuck Todd: Walker Supporters Bunch of Bitter-Clingers
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Shades of bitter-clingers!

Chuck Todd has developed an interesting device to delegitimize support for Gov. Scott Walker, depicting his backers as uneducated, frustrated, blue-collar people who are willing to "lash out at government workers."

Yup, there's no respectable basis to support Walker and his call for reforms on a collective bargaining system that have nearly wrecked Wisconsin and many other states. No, there's just the irrational reaction of the embittered, ignorant masses.

I notice the news "crawler" on HLN refers to Walker as "the defiant governor."
Nope, no bias there.

One thing about Chuck Todd — he's consistent — he doesn't have a clue about what's going on in Madison or what the stakes are. Absolute, total cluelessness on display for all to see. Chuck, you're an embarrassment.

Chuck Todd (D, MS-DNC):
"At MS-DNC, our job is to delegitimize Americans for Islam and Obama;
.. and to protect Ms. David Gregory and her systematic coverup
of the stealing of taxpayer money at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae."

Calling all Blue State conservatives... I’m thinking the best thing may be to move to a Red state, preferably with right to work laws, and let the Blues States wither on the vine (more like implode). Come up with a Code name for this action; “Failed State To Free State” or “Big Red’s New Adventure” or “Go Red Young Man, Go Red”. There need not be a civil war, just move.

Hey Chuck!

You lost at the ballot box and are injecting mob rule, pretending that we have some obligation to negotiate with the mobs.
We don’t!

The Guv should make the point that plainly.

Chuck Todd is close to being an idiot. I’m appalled at his lack of knowledge about almost anything that isn’t related to polls and elections.

The other day, he told us that the terrorist arrested on American soil (the student) was “an isolated case.” Old Chuck had no knowledge of that but felt it was necessary to lie so we didn’t run out and attack Muslims.

Ha! Your premise is flawed. Chuck Todd doesn’t work for a news outlet. He works for the progressive collective.

personally I hope the Dems really ARE stupid enough to keep reminding voters of this “Bitter Clingers” comment over and over and over again through next fall

Many of those he is bashing voted for Obama in 2008.

A small fact he’d like to ignore.

The anarchists are to blame here and nothing can change the truth.

Chuck U Todd.

Remember, Public Sector employees are already protected more than the Private Sector ones due to Civil Service Laws.

Yeah, this is getting pretty confusing, isn't it? How can you tell them from the uneducated, overpaid blue collar union members?

The ORIGINAL “Pretty in Pink.”

Maybe that’s the look Hillary was going for in her Vogue feature some years back.
