If Obama loses the press, it will be like the Vietnam War losing Walter Conkrite.

Ah, the expression is "toe the line" as in "line up single file, toes on the line."

Perhaps the writer was one "toke" over the line.

“NBC Investigative Reporter: Admin Has History Of Intimidating Press”

The country didn’t listen when Lisa Myers did a piece on Bammy’s Chicago home - the publik vas tooo stoopid to connect the dots. Obama - Rezko - Blagojevich.

Hate to use the Brian Williams intro but in a hurry:

I saw it elsewhere first but don’t have the link handy.

Yes, yes it will. Carney will resign because he’s already cracking under the pressure; Bob Gibbs couldn’t take it any more.

I hope so. Its the only thing propping the Marxist up by keeping the truth from the American People. If the press turns on him the rats will have to decide, defend Obama or save their own careers.

They will pick their own careers.

Lisa Myers was also the one who interiewed Juanita Broaddrick -- Fox News finally shamed NBC into running it, when all the anchors wore lapel buttons reading "Free Lisa Myers." She'd undoubtedly be one terrific investigative reporter if she didn't have to contend with the lapdog media!

The Viet Nam War never had that Communist Traitor, Walter Cronkite. He was just looking for the opportunity to declare it lost for his Communist Controllers.

Carney’s face is showing a lot, lately.

He knows this litany of lies and falsehoods he’s been involved with will end, badly.

He may jump before the whole thing implodes.

No; they are never wrong, even when they are not correct; it matters not what the common form of it is...depending upon what the meaning of “is” is.

In this case, they mean “to grab the line, and haul away Joe”, towing the Barge of State against the current of public opinion.
