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.

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!
The coup de grace would have been if Sununu would have then said “ Andrea when Media Matters gets you your competing numbers lets talk about it some more”
Another reason to hate Alan Greenspan who was a total fraud.
Yeah - I know you’re right - but for TODAY he’s a hero. All our people need to laugh at the Andrea Mitchell types - dems with more attitude than brains.
He took her bony arse to the woodshed and she is still trying to figure out what happened.
Let there be no doubt: There is no difference ... there is no space between ... Andrea Mitchell and David Axelrod. They both have the same job, the same objectives, the same function in their day to day jobs--To reelect Obama. Truth and integrity be damned.
That was *SO* great. Thank you for posting it.
She did a nice job bleaching her hair....
When Obama adds up his fundraising totals does he include all the free media Andrea Mitchell and her fellow travelers give him?
You can't diminish something to below zero. There is, however, an adage that suggests when you are in a hole too deep to climb from, you should stop digging.
Roger that. Warren Rudman was a pompous dirtbag. He proved it over and over. I regret voting for him more than any other votes I have ever cast in my life.
