MoveOn.Mika: 'Silly' To Discuss Obama Not Telling Truth Over Authorship Of Sequester
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/25/2013 5:56:45 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Call her MoveOn.Mika . . . Bob Woodward has demonstrated that President Obama was not telling the truth when during the third presidential debate he flatly stated "the sequester is not something that I've proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.” In fact, it was two Obama aides who devised the plan, and Obama himself who approved it.

But when Joe Scarborough wanted to get those facts on the record this morning, Mika Brzezinski repeatedly declared that discussing Obama's failure to tell the truth was "silly." Things got heated between the co-hosts at one point as Mika cut Joe off, saying "I need to talk."

It seems you can always tell what hurts them down deep by their reaction.

The last one was when Limbaugh used the “ashamed of my country” phrase,
pointing out both the fact that we SHOULD BE ashamed of what’s becoming of the country,
and Michelle’s comment about “first time to be proud of my country”.

Wow! Talk about a sexist picture! I can’t believe any serious woman would pose for something like that.

Women who actually have a hot body just love to show it off. It's the ones that have let themselves go or never had it in the first place that get shrill about "objectification".

If it weren’t for ‘Right Leaning Talk Radio Shows’, sites like this etc, fools like these two would get a “Who are ‘they’? And Why should we/I care what they think”.

If the ‘entire’ MSNBC ‘lineup’ were to be completely ignored by “US”, they and their small audience would fade off into oblivion.
“We” prop them up and would imagine a goodly amount of their viewing audience is people that are ONLY aware of their existences because of the likes of FR, Rush, Hannity, Levin etc etc etc.

I hear you, but the fact is that Morning Joe is considered an important ‘agenda-setter’ within MSM circles. At NewsBusters we believe it’s important to expose and combat liberal media bias, and Morning Joe is my main beat.

Joe should have asked Mika if it was the Republicans idea and a bad thing, whey did Obama threaten to veto any bill that would change it.

President Obama had stern words for any Republicans who are thinking about trying to reverse the automatic cuts that will take place now that the super committee has failed to reach an agreement -- Obama threatens to veto changes to $1.2T in cuts:

That would be a “silly” thing to ask, and Mika’s not going to answer such a “silly” question.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
I do understand that and ‘thank you’ for keeping us ‘informed’ and making it possible to NOT have to watch that trite.
But to be the ‘Most important element on MSNBC is like saying that ‘one’ is the most important TV reporter in Bumfuz AR, while it is nice to be #1, the size of the audience should be factored in.

When I contracted with a larger ‘mainline’ Delivery Co, my cohorts/peers were saying “They only pay 65% to you, my guy pays 70-85%, which is fine but the ‘base’ of MY Company was 2.00 while ‘their’ base was 1.30 and the ‘only’ reason I knew of these people was their company was ALSO subbing out, (like I was), so, working side by side, I was making 1.30 (at 65%), while ‘they’ were making around 1.10 for the same job - I was just cutting out the middle man and getting more......and getting the ‘cream’ off the top jobs..

Honestly, even if Obama may lie all the time there are still idiots out there who really don’t realize it. Having at least someone on MSNBC point this out is good because maybe not everyone saw it, but at the least someone did and maybe will start to realize the pile of you know what that has been accumulating in DC.

In those immortal words of Hillary, “What difference does it make?”

In fact, if this worthless Marxist propaganda channel was dropped from our satellite service, it certainly wouldn’t make a difference to us. We are being robbed by having to pay for MSNBC, BET, OWN etc. etc. which we never watch.

The Obama News Channels are still waiting for the WH to tell them what to ‘report’ on Benghazi.

Actually the exact quote is, “What difference at this point does it make?” and the “at this point” is significant. This nation somehow has elected a communist to the Presidency, twice! Our goose is cooked. Next: To the barricades!
