Romney Adviser Hammers CNN Anchor Over 'Silly Question'

Posted on 09/12/2012 5:19:50 PM PDT by tsowellfan

After the press belittled Mitt Romney over the politics of his statements on Tuesday's embassy attacks, CNN's Don Lemon continued asking redundant questions about process to the Romney campaign's foreign policy adviser on Wednesday.

"[Y]ou want to talk about a process issue," Richard Williamson lectured Lemon. "Because the White House doesn't want to talk about substance. It wants to talk about process...

Better way to phrase it --

"The White House asked you to focus on process questions, didn't they? The White House told you to stay away from substance, right? Because it makes them look weak? How much does Obama pay you to handle his public relations? And why isn't this a violation of campaign finance laws?"

Dan Senor was also on CNN and mopped the floors with the same talking head and the lefty congressman who were trying to somehow find fault with Romney instead of addressing the crisis.

CNN, the cable network that deliberately looked the other way when they personally knew of Saddam Hussein’s torturing innocent civilians, just so they’d be able to keep an office in Baghdad.

worth reading. I hope Romney’s people keep hammering the leftist media and their attack questions. Of course they only report the questions if they don’t get the answers that they want.

“Send Big John Sununu out there to tell ‘em where the bear takes a dump in the buckwheat.”

But let’s not ask him to recommend to Mitt who to appoint for any SCOTUS justices, ok?

funny how the state dept said sorry but the media ignores this, funny how the media does not mention jug ears stayed in bed, funny how they ignore how it was the two countries he helped to overthrow , one being an ally for 30 years did this.
Funny how they ignore how a General called a pastor
Funny how they ignore how this foreign policy has been awful

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the Obamugabe cult worshipper Don Lemon the one “hosting” CNN’s coverage of the Olympic city announcement...and he was flabbergasted when the very first city to be rejected was Chicago?!!??

I still remember all those union thug moron followers of Obamugabe gathered in some park in Chicago listening...expecting that their little punk Kenyan had gotten them the Olympics...and right out of the gate, the Olympics told Obamugabe to shove it up his hind end....

Oh, that was such a great day.

I was billeted next to Saddam's women's prison. Walked past it every day for 8 months. These was an evil eeriness about it.

By the time I got there Obie's DoD had made it off limits so I didn't get to go in. Wouldn't want to offend Muslim sensibilities by advertising Saddam's depravity.

Thank you for your service. I’d like to know whose idea it was to run with the so-called offensive Mohammed film to cover for this administration’s inadequacies. Will we ever know?

They have 100,000 viewers. Tops.

Most of those are people sitting at airports waiting for their planes who can't change the channel to FOX.

The “media” *spits* in this country does not deserve President Mitt Romney.

The “media” *spits* in this country deserves the vermin that calls itself Barack Hussein Obama.

May the “media” *spits* of this country burn in ****ing Hell.

They also left out that Obama ran out of his press conference, as the situation continues to develop in disturbing ways, to drag Air Force One across the country for another political fundraiser.

Obama’s got a problem, because he needs to come up with an October surprise that rallies the nation to him, but to get it the world has to see what an utter failure he’s been at earning respect for America in the last 4 years.

The media is livid with all of us who recognize where this crisis came from - because we were all supposed to come rushing to Obama begging him to deliver us.

Instead, more and more people are realizing we need to be delivered from the foreign enemy combatant currently occupying our White House - the guy who told the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda and would focus on accomplishing that agenda after he had crammed Obamacare down our throats.

The agenda that all sects of Islam agree on is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia.

Bean counter or not, you put yourself in harms’ way. I can’t imagine it was easy. I’m a 65 year old female, and spent 25 years in uniform, working in all-male, maximum and medium facilities in NY State’s Dept. of Corrections. Eight months after taking the job, a rookie female officer downstate was murdered by a convict. Don’t think I didn’t have second thoughts about taking the job...I did. I got through those 25 years, but by the time I retired, I was a changed person.

Not meeting with Netanyahu might be the quickest way for Obama to get an October surprise.

But not meeting with Netanyahu may also be the quickest way for Obama to rightly be BLAMED for the October surprise when Israel attacks Iran in self-defense. Obama’s people have leaked vital information about Israel’s alliance with Turkey - which was necessary because Iraq wouldn’t approve Israel to use their air space to launch an attack on Iran’s nuclear sites.

Every ally the USA has ever had has to be asking themselves: With “friends” like Obama, who needs enemies?

And every thinking American is asking the same thing.

This has been NPR's tactic for over 3 decades. Dems were allowed to comment on the issues, while Repubs were asked about process. I stopped listening after I figured out what they were doing in their interviews.
