It really has been hysterical watching the Obama-loving media the past few weeks defend the President using bogus information reported by the Washington Post falsely accusing Mitt Romney of outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital.
This has become so comical that former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu (R) couldn't hold back the laughs as Andrea Mitchell did exactly that Tuesday on the MSNBC program bearing her name (video follows with transcript and commentary):
John Sununu Laughs at Andrea Mitchell Defending Obama's Use of Bogus Romney Outsourcing Claims
ANDREA MITCHELL, HOST: Isn't it a winning issue for the White House fundamentally, granted that the Politifact folks and the Washington Post pointed out that the President's campaign ad on that issue had a lot, a lot of questions and a lot of questionable attack lines...
JOHN SUNUNU: No, they said it was wrong. A lot of questions is not right. It was wrong.
MITCHELL: Okay, if, but the point is that doesnt, isn't Mitt Romney more vulnerable than the President on this issue because there still is, the whole question of private equity of outsourcing? You could argue about when he left Bain Capital, and, you know, whether he was still getting money from Bain Capital and what some of the companies in Bain were doing, companies that did end up working overseas and sending jobs overseas.
MITCHELL But isn't it a bigger problem for Republicans than for the White House?
SUNUNU: No. When you've sent $500 million to Fisker and it goes to Finland immediately. When you send the solar money and it goes to Mexico. When you send the turbine money and it goes to Denmark. And we can go on all day. There is $29 billion worth of purchases that came out of this administration, outsourced jobs to foreign countries. Mitt Romney outsourced zero. Obama outsourced 29
SUNUNU: Zero. He wasn't there when those issues came up.
MITCHELL: Well, first of all
MITCHELL: the $29 billion are not all outsourced from the administration because...
SUNUNU: Sure they are.
MITCHELL: A lot of those jobs still remained here. There are jobs, when you do a grant, Governor, there are jobs here as well as overseas.
SUNUNU: [Laughs] You're struggling, Andrea. You're struggling. [Laughs]
MITCHELL: Well, first of all
SUNUNU: [Still laughing]
MITCHELL: these are competing claims and we will get back to you with all of the numbers.
I'd say that Mitchell ought to be ashamed, but any self-respect she had went out the window last month when she not only aired a selectively-edited video of Romney to make him look like an out of touch moron, she chose not to apologize when she got caught.
One has to hope reelecting one president is worth the diminishment in credibility Mitchell is suffering from her astonishingly unprofessional behavior.
Did not Andrea just get caught editing a Romney tape in order to make it appear he said something he did not? This lady is a loser.
LOL - What a maroon - I’m series!!
Closest thing to a “Newt” media beatdown I’ve seen this year! Perfect fodder for some Romney advertising on par with the swift boat ads.
Andrea, you ignorant fluke.
I believe you are correct
” Im series!!”
No! You’re mute and irrevalunt!
Andrea...you are a waste of skin. Isn’t it time for assisted suicide, doing a public service donating your skin to others (burn victims, etc)?
The only way Andrea Mitchell could suffer a loss of credibility is if she had any to begin with.
"LMAO! You're struggling, Andrea, you're struggling! LMAO!"
"LMAO! You're struggling, Andrea, you're struggling! LMAO!"
Who says Andrea Mitchell is a professional....
She is simply another democRAT party apparatchik masquerading as a ......?
Honestly, I have no idea what what she is. It is clear journalist isn’t one of them.
>> Isn’t it a winning issue for the White House fundamentally, granted that the Politifact folks and the Washington Post pointed out that the President’s campaign ad on that issue had a lot, a lot of questions and a lot of questionable attack lines...
ROFL! Read that over three times for meaning, and see what YOU come up with.
No Rhodes scholar,this Andrea! I don’t care if she’s married to Alan Greenspan (who, as the years fly by, is looking less and less like a Rhodes scholar himself...)
>> SUNUNU: No. When you’ve sent $500 million to Fisker and it goes to Finland immediately. When you send the solar money and it goes to Mexico. When you send the turbine money and it goes to Denmark. And we can go on all day. There is $29 billion worth of purchases that came out of this administration, outsourced jobs to foreign countries. Mitt Romney outsourced zero. Obama outsourced 29
I had written off Sununu years ago. I may have to reconsider; he’s sounding pretty “right on” here!
YOU GO FAT BOY!
(Okay, that was rude; give me some time and I may do better.)
This is HUGH!
Obama complains he can’t raise enough money. He has these hacks on the MSM covering up his record, changing the subject, distracting and sometimes actually lying. How much money is it worth to have a lying cheating media on your side? How much does it cost us to pay a President to fly around on Air Force One in campaign mode 24/7 while getting paid?
Write him off at your own peril. I would say he is not to be trifled with lightly and I know him a bit.
It was a beautiful thing.
>> She is simply another democRAT party apparatchik masquerading as a ......?
I submit “space alien”. (Or “scientologist”; take your pick.)
What do I win? :-)
Translation: "You got me...I got nuthin'..."
I’d say all self-respect went out the window when she married Greenspan for his $$$$$$$$$$!
Amazing! Yes, when you award a grant that shouldn't be awarded you still create jobs for grant administrators. I worked for a company that administered some of the "Recovery..Act" money. They were embarrassed to say so.
As Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason) used to say when his wife had him cornered in an argument: Hammina-hammina-hammina!
>> Write him off at your own peril
Who... Sununu? I’m not writing him off, I’m cheering him on!
But that doesn’t stop me from being surprised. Or “gobsmacked” as our friends across the pond put it.
Speaking of “across”, since you know him SOOO well, you KNOW he’s an “across the aisle” RINO, right?
Nevertheless, YOU GO FAT BOY!!!! Make me proud!
And by the way: a hearty THANK YOU for your many years of faithful service to our nation.
Without you, and the way forward you have helped to make secure, this discussion would be rather meaningless (if it could be held at all).
God Bless You, and FRegards
How much was it that Obama outsourced to Brazil so they could drill offshore while he was blocking us from drilling off our shores?
One could have a battle of wits with Andrea but she’s obviously out of ammunition.
I watched this video. I’m sure he had no idea how it was going to go when he went in, but she was caught stammering, at a loss for words, and he swooped. It was masterful. And I don’t particularly like the man who suggested David Souter to the SCOTUS.
John is a brilliant guy & was a great governor of NH. He blew it on Souter with the help of that no-good RINO U.S. senator (RNH)Warren Rudman. Rudman is the lying scum that sold Souter to Sununu & Bush. And Rudman knew Souter’s private views. Sununu & Bush 41 did not have that info cause Souter’s record on the NH court was conservative. Sununu should have done more homework, but the real guy behind the nightmare that was Souter was mostly Warren Rudman.
She didn’t know whether to take her thumb out of her ass or get pissed at him for laughing at her!!!
Gotta love when libs step on their own crank...love it even more when one of “ours” has the balls to point it out and make fun of them for it.
It’s just getting harder and harder to defend that buffoon Obama. When your best people are out there flopping around like fish out of water, desperate to find ANYTHING positive to say about you, it is a bad, bad omen for November.
Yup. She’s basically Dan Rather with a dress.
What do you expect? The lady is a dumb democrat.
That is a Personal Attack on Mrs. Alan Greenspan!! snif snif ;-)
And, perhaps, even a little dumber.
Mitchell's such a ditz ..

Surprised she didn’t come back with, “my mind is feeling tighter than a rusted lug nut on a ‘55 ford pickup truck.
The non existent word PWND comes to mind.
sanunu is the rino of the century. Who trotted this liberal out and why? He was the one that got George Daddy Bush to break his word on “read my lips no new taxes” followed by ablock buster tax increase and ran Bush out of office!! Get Sanunu back under his rock!!
Because, truth be told...
Absolutely devastating. Game, set, match.
That was classic! She stuttered,she stammered,then finally when she couldn’t think up another whooper of a tale, she told him she would get back to him with the numbers.If that was not a case of the media being a shill for the President,I don’t know what is.
I’ve been laughing at her for years!
