Skip to comments.John King Attacks Conservative Senate Candidate Mourdock for... Promising to Remain Conservative
Posted on 05/11/2012 7:04:19 AM PDT by Mozilla
Following Richard Mourdocks commanding victory in the Indiana Republican primary, CNNs John King felt it appropriate to criticize Mourdock for of all things his campaign pledge of legislating as a conservative. King began the interview with a loaded question, asking the GOP candidate, "are you so rigid in your ideology that you will refuse compromise and therefore keep the country from solving its problems?" The presumption, of course, that the country's problems can only be solved through compromise away from conservative solutions. King like many in the media have been mourning the loss of Dick Lugar who many viewed as a moderate, and now consider his Republican successor as an extreme Tea Party-backed candidate.
Mourdock held his own throughout the interview and consistently maintained that he will not compromise on his principles, explaining that when the term compromise is usually invoked these days, "its about having Republicans join Democrats to get something done. One of the things weve spoken of a great deal over the last 15 minutes is my desire to help build the Republican Party into the majority so that the word bipartisanship means maybe some Democrats will come our way instead."

OmG what a breath of fresh air!!!!!!!!!!!!
someone who will not change his position after being elected?
and they are SHOCKED!!!
Holy cow...this could be a line straight out of Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead". VERBATIM! Chilling.
Wake me up when John King berates a liberal candidate promising to stay liberal.
CommunistNetworkNews in action.
Murdock wills tay true to his faith and Obama AND BOEHNER and MCCONNELL will be facing a Congress of real conservatives.
Hoepfully the latter three will be removed from their respstive offices and replaced by real Americans.
From Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, the same old line:
“Are you going to keep relief from the country??”
“The people of my state need permanent relief from crooked men riding their backs!”
What a harridan.
“are you so rigid in your ideology that you will refuse compromise and therefore keep the country from solving its problems?”
Objection. Compound. Argumentative.
Please rephrase your question.
Good opportunity to make the journalist the story.
“Are you so rigid in your ideology that you have lost any semblance of objectivity as a journalist?”
“Do you accept money for attacking conservatives, or are you doing this for free? Does your editor know, or does he back you in this? Is your entire network so biased that it can no longer report the truth about anything?”
He should have said, “Mr. King, ‘compromise’ is what go tus into this mess.”
We need Newt to have another public confrontation with John King like he had in SC. John looked like he had his family jewels torn off and handed to him.
