Minutes after Paul Ryan was introduced as Mitt Romney's vice presidential nominee, Saturday, a sour Andrea Mitchell dismissed the choice: "This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women."
Playing off the GOP congressman's first speech as the presumptive nominee, Mitchell lectured, "I think that you're going to see that they [Team Romney] have decided that this is a base election." The liberal anchor for MSNBC worried that Ryan was "talking about what the base wants to hear." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan Isn't a Pick for Women
She said of his speech: "He talked about rights coming from God and they don't come from government."
A transcript of the August 11 exchange during live coverage is below:
ANDREA MITCHELL: I think that you're going to see that they've decided that this is a base election.
CHRIS HAYES: Yeah.
MITCHELL: This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is a pick for the base.
As a woman, and a suburban mom, I just love Paul Ryan.
Who cares what she thinks?
She is the first of many liberals in “meltdown mode”.
...of the ugly truck that hit her?
In lockstep as usual.
Ah yes, Andrea Mitchell, the person who doctored one of Romneys tapes. Sorry Andrea, but you have no credibility in my book.
Yeah suburban moms can’t get enough of Biden. /s
Color me surprised.
Did you support Sarah Palin for VP, D-bag?
She is Angry-a Mitchell, after all. That self-important and self-righteous biddy has set herself up as the end-all and be-all authority of what women like and dont like.
Sometimes, when you think you are leading a parade, it might pay to look back from time to time and see if anybody is still following.
One-car funerals are such pathetic displays.
Yeah, what’s that look? She trying to be Wasserman-Shultz after hair straightener?
It’s like a broken record with these people... “war on women, racist, homophobic, no more health care, tax cuts for the rich...” Never ends.
This dumb leftist whore cannot grasp the idea of a candidate that is for Americans as a whole, and not a representative of special interests only.
Oh Andrea, do you honestly believe we care what you think or give 2 hoots what your opinion is? We all know you love abortion and want a condom in every purse.
I hope women wake-up and see what the real liberal opinion of women is about. They believe all women are such sluts that the best thing to do is give them condoms or an abortion so they can look like the party that cares. Is that what women want to be know for so they can tell their children we fought for the death of babies and free condoms.
I personally believe in being responsible for my choices. I am one woman that would get in this liberals face and tell her exactly what I think of her, her messiah obama, and her stupid opinions.
Yeah, suburban moms just love being dragged into poverty by Obama and team.
I am a suburban mom and I am happy with Ryan. Romney, though, not so much.
Well, THAT is sure going to make Paul Ryan smoke a turd in liberal purgatory! EVERYONE knows rights come from the government!
