MSNBC HOST: CRITICIZING OBAMA’S GOLFING IS A SCHEME TO LINK HIM WITH TIGER WOODS
Human Events ^ | 8/29/12 | John Hayward

Posted on 08/29/2012 3:12:22 PM PDT by KansasGirl

Beyond parody, and virtually beyond commentary, the following exchange occurred between MSNBC outpatients Martin Bashir and Lawrence O’Donnell.

Video and transcript courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon:

MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that?

LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. They find every way they possibly can to –

BASHIR: Lawrence — don’t you think — don’t you think that what he’s really trying to do is to suggest that the president is not paying attention to the central issues that come with the responsibility he has? Is he really – Mitch McConnell really making a connection with Tiger Woods who, of course, has become infamous for chasing various cocktail waitresses around Las Vegas and so on?

What???

This a parody?

Bush was blasted non stop for spending too much time at his ranch. Obama golfs away a week or two of his presidency and press says it’s no big deal.

I am convinced NBC is trying the early Howard Stern school of journalism. Say and do outragreous things, any attention and publicity is good. No pub is bad. Some of this is clownish but some is ridiculous. I heard Ann Coulter say today she watches MSNBC more than FOX purely to see the hysteria.

Republicans need to be more specific: He’s played Golf over 100 rounds since he’s been in office in 4 years. While the nation nosedives hes out of touch for 5 hours each of those days. He’s a loafer. Say it. He’s lazy.

And if Obama liked to play tennis and the reference was to Wimbledon, would this be a subtle reference to Venus Williams. These white leftists have race on the brain because it is inconceivable to them that a non white person could have an individual identity and exist as anything other than a member of a non white demographic.

One minor difference - everyone in the Milky Way knows what Tiger shot. Hussein? Not so much.

Martin Bashir, like many of the MSM, can be counted on to say the craziest thing possible because it appeals to the mindless Obama lemmings out there in idiot-land.

These things keep the lemmings viewing the MSM.

The number of people who read about the stupid things they say probably far outweighs the number of actual viewers who saw them say it.

Ignore them and they will have to go away

From what I hear, Obama’s golf game isn’t very good, and Obama is more likely to be caught with a naked boy than a beautiful woman. Judging from the number of gays working around the White House these days, it’s likely Obama is a little more sexually active than Tiger.

WTF! This is getting ridiculous.

O'Donnell has to decide if he loves Obama more than he hates Mormons, because stupid comments like this discredit the other comments he makes.

Lawrence O’Donnell has a genuine mental illness. I’m very serious. I have worked in the mental health field, and he is not well.

I’ve been saying that since 2004.

It’s gotten to the point I can’t tell what is real and what is semi-news/satire without looking at the tag. Reality may be winning in a race to the ridiculous, when you take in to account the convention coverage.

Here’s how stupid O’Donnell’s comments are. Liberals believe all conservative Republicans are Klan members anyway. But somehow big Republicans i.e.big-time racists have to use “code language” to get them, conservatives, (also nasty racists) to vote for them. All the talk about “code language” and “dog whistles” is the ultimate in asininity from the King of Asinine Statements—Larry O’Donnell.

That's some POWERFUL "dog whistle". So powerful that nobody hears it but liberal race-baiters.

Even the Grand Kleagle of the KKK can't hear it.

God, how I hate the liberal media. Larry O'Donnell is insane.

On the one hand Lawrence O’Donald is insane and on the other, Mitch McConnell has no clue who Tiger Wood’s is. So... I guess it’s a draw.
