CNN's Candy Crowley: Ryan Pick 'Looks a Little Bit Like Some Sort of Ticket Death Wish'
NewsBusters.org ^ | August 11, 2012 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 08/11/2012 9:45:22 AM PDT by Kaslin

As NewsBusters has been noting all Saturday morning, now that Paul Ryan has been chosen as Mitt Romney's running mate, the goal of the Obama-loving media is to rip him to shreds.

Doing her part Saturday was CNN's Candy Crowley who said that this "looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

CNN's Candy Crowley: Ryan Pick 'Looks a Little Bit Like Some Sort of Ticket Death Wish'

CANDY CROWLEY, CNN: We’ve already had this debate. All they have to do at Obama Reelect is open up the files because this debate has already happened. They just bring it back, it goes, it is, you know, what they talk about. But I think the other thing that’s worth pointing out is not every Republican has signed on to this kind of, I mean, they will publicly. But there is some trepidation…

GLORIA BORGER, CNN: They're afraid.

CROWLEY: ...that this might be, looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish. That, oh, my gosh, do we really want to talk about these thing? Is this where we want to go when the economy is so bad? We could have stayed on that.

A ticket death wish?

Is this how the folks at CNN think they're going to improve their continually declining ratings?

From the guys with low ratings I find this an ironic statement.

It’s obvious why Ms. Crowley can’t get a job at Fox, the network that has the big ratings.

Why doesn’t this Candy broad just wear an Obama 2012 button on her blouse and make her bias official?

No wonder only 375 people watch CNN.

The media are very afraid. If Romney wins, they will be shown to be less effective than they were 4 years ago. Their power to control what the American public thinks will be gone, or at least severely curtailed. They will pull out all the stops to get Zero re-elected, just to show that they still have "the power".

October is going to a brutal month, politically - the fur is gonna' fly!

She may be named “Candy” but I’m pretty sure they didn’t mean eye candy. Don’t get me wrong, I like big girls, but I prefer mine to be sane.

Over at the "Cee Nothing New" Network the story line never changes! They wear their "I LOVE THE DNC" buttons under their network costumes.

The Pubbies need to hit these slime balls hard and challenge them to become "journalists" instead of relay stations for the Democrat National Committee!

“...I like big girls, but...”

Huge difference between *big girls* and major league, grotesque, obese, frothing-idiot, lefty sweathogs. Candy’s chins have their own zipcode, as does her rearend.

Thanks.

It is this precise kind of ignorance which so-called "progressives" rely on for perpetuating their ideology.

The Crowleys of the media are so bereft of understanding of the principles which are essential to their own liberty as members of the press that they see up as down and backward as "forward."

By the time Ryan has used his Creator-endowed talent for articulating ideas to raise voter awareness of the fallacies and failures of the redistributionist-in-chief, perhaps she will see that Ryan has breathed new life into Romney's campaign and, just perhaps, he has helped to preserve the Bill of Rights' protections which allow her to voice her prejudices.

No fat chicks!

And no one has mentioned (that I’ve seen) our liberaltarian cousins’ thoughts on the pick, so here you go, if not worth its own thread: http://reason.com/archives/2012/08/09/the-case-for-paul-ryan-for-vice-presiden

“Well we’ve seen the “I’ll never vote for a Mormon” posts.”

This one got slightly more creative last night:

I like Ryan. I don’t like romney. I will stay home but the future is bright.
