CNN host O'Brien defends Obama, as Giuliani suggests she's tied to campaign
cnn ^ | 10/15/2012 | By Tim Graham

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was never known for being soft on journalists during his time in office. On Monday’s "Starting Point" on CNN, Giuliani pushed back at CNN morning anchor Soledad O’Brien, who started their interview typically by offering the Obama talking points for Giuliani’s reaction.

But when O’Brien started insisting that the word “cover-up” was going too far, and started asking her assistant Miguel for all the Obama transcripts, Giuliani asked, “Man, am I debating with the president's campaign? I mean, the defense of the president is overwhelming.”

Giuliani simply did not believe that if the Obama administration had any savvy, they would believe that the terrorist attack on Libya erupted out of a spontaneous demonstration over an old YouTube clip uploaded from California. He thought U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice should have known this public-relations line would flop before she announced it on five Sunday network news shows.

“Susan Rice goes on television four days later -- I was on CNN with her that morning. Says it was a spontaneous demonstration,” he said. “I knew it wasn't. I'm not part of the administration; I knew it wasn't the day after. And she had to know it wasn't. They were saying it wasn't, the national security adviser said it was a terrorist plot.”

She really is a complete whore for Obama. Her sense of “objective journalism” is to frantically defend the president against all adversaries. She is incapable of grasping the fact that he is not perfect and that some people might have legitimate points to make against him. The mere thought is outrageous to her.

Soledad has her head so far up Obama’s @ss that it’s hard to tell when she ends and he begins.

I once yelled at the gym TV at 24 Hour Fitness one morning and just uttered “F888, I’m sick of this liberal crap” when this liberal troll skank showed up.

Of course the media is in his corner.
Just look at how nicely the NY Times has blacked out this story!

When they have had to print anything on it, it has been sharply biased toward the administration's latest lie.
