Begala: ...people like me, we love to mock the Tea Party... but this time...
(Excerpt) Read more at youtube.com ...
He is a Clintonista. He wants the focus off the Bengazi scandal since Hillary ca/will be tarred with it.
That’s absurd. This is huge admission.
I don’t think he will be called on the carpet — recall that no less a figure than David Axelrod said the other day that the basic problem is that government is so big that we can expect Obama to be on top of details like rule of law and so on.
But libtards' desire for power and control will soon overcome this realization.
I dont think he will be called on the carpet recall that no less a figure than David Axelrod said the other day that the basic problem is that government is so big that we CAN NOT expect Obama to be on top of details like rule of law and so on.
So, in other words, you are more obsessed with Obama being called on the carpet than you are about Axelrod and Begala admitting that their entire philsophy is wrong and our’s is right? Am I hearing you right? SHEESH!!!!
See what happens when the Useful Idiots elect a Lazy A$$ Community Organizing Mulatto Marxist as El Presidente?
Never mind that they did it TWICE.
Too bad Allen West wasn’t the first “real” Black President.
If he was, we would have as many Black Presidents as they portray in the Movies and TV.
“Undermines the peoples faith in government.” = Begala
He agreed with Ari about the TEA Party/conservatives being targeted.
Here’s the thing: Begala is a Bill Clinton lojalist. Bill Clinton, and so Begala, has no love for Hillary.
And the break, and war, between Bill Clinton’s Democrats and Obama’s was a fact when Bill Clinton’s WH counsel broke and left Obama.
Sorry. I couldn’t watch it. I can’t listen to a villain like Begala, even if he might be agreeing with me. I don’t care what he says. I don’t trust him or his motives.

If the Tea Party is right only one time, it is right one time too many.
Sure he does. Don’t buy that for a minute. Isn’t he a Hillary lover?
Isnt he a Hillary lover?
He was extremely jealous of Monica Lewinsky.
Mark Levin started litigating this same kind of abuse during the Cinton administration, in 1997. It’s not new to Begala. Therefore his shock and outrage has to serve a different purpose.
Begala said no such thing. He only said that in this one case the Tea Party is right.
I too think he is diverting attention away from Hillary and Benghazi.
Hitler had the decency to shoot himself.
He went beyond what you say....
I guess I’m just not obsessed with people......I’m an idea guy, and large minds focus on ideas while small minds focus on people....
“he” = Begala in my post
my bad then....
“Too bad Allen West wasnt the first real Black President.
If he was, we would have as many Black Presidents as they portray in the Movies and TV.”
Blacks don’t consider Allen West to be an “authentic Black,” so they would never vote for him. He would be to the Presidency as Clarence Thomas is to the SCOTUS. Sad to say, because Allen West it the kind of principled man that we need for a president. Unfortunately, most Blacks have no idea what “principled” means. To them it’s about “free $h!t” and being cared for as the go about their business of procreating another litter of little welfare recipients.
He went beyond what you say....
Then quote him.
Yes, it’s often said that liberals love mankind, it’s just people they hate.
Be happy to.
First, he AGREE with what Fleisher said, which was a sweeping “faith in government” being undermined statement.
Second, he said “the liberal philosphy, the underpinning of it, is that government is good...”
And that was in his first 3 seconds....need more?
...and he goes on...
“this abuse of power by the IRS goes right to the hear of that” (and that means the liberal philsophy). .....and then he says “this does undermine people’s faith in government”
Begala wasn’t disturbed that conservatives were targeted and their private information shared with left-wing organizations. He is only concerned that the conspiracy was revealed to the public.
Obama led the mule party over a cliff in an effort to remain in power...
First, he AGREE with what Fleisher said, which was a sweeping faith in government being undermined statement. Second, he said the liberal philosphy, the underpinning of it, is that government is good...
Looks to me like he said that faith in government is being undermined because of this one scandal.
He did not say that big government was bad.
And he did not say that "their entire (liberal) philsophy is wrong and ours is right?"
His message was more like, Obama and the IRS needs to get their big government azz in gear so that we continue on with the philosophy that "big government is good".
you are the one focused on the term “this one scandal” - what Begala let slip is that this scandal lends credence to the entire notion of government not being good. Besides, with the IRS running Obama Care, it is IMPOSSIBLE, as in let’s see....NOT POSSIBLE....as in “AINT GONNA HAPPEN - to isolate this as “one scandal.” That’s my point. There is no putting this genie back in the bottle.
Begala did not intend to validate that, but he did nonetheless. An IRS scandal by very definition is a scandal on the very nature of intrusive government. It cannot be isolated.
Just remember that this is the same man who said on camera “ the Clinton’s are the most honorable people “ of any politicians he knew.
How did limited government advocates come to be called “the right”?
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Normal people think that an IRS scandal cannot be isolated. That scandal and big government go hand-in-hand.
That's not what Begala is saying.
*Begala is saying that in this case, the tea party fears are correct. Which means that he still thinks that in all other cases, tea party fears are incorrect.*
He is NOT admitting that the Big Government entire philsophy is wrong and ours is right. He is saying that we need to do Big Government better, else the people won't trust us and we won't get our Big Government utopia.
That is what these folks think when their Big Government doesn't work.
Why are these people such slow learners!!!
you are just missing the point....so missing the point being so obsessed with Begala. I know Begala didn’t MEAN to admit that we’re right...and I know he doesn’t think that he’s right....and I know he meant to say in this one case we happen to be right.
Duh duh duh duh duh. Quit thinking like an accountant and open your mind to the big picture.
The needle Begala is trying to thread is unthreadable, thereby, by definition, he admitted we are right. You are so obsessed with the media and what Begala thinks. I am pointing out what he admitted by default. DUH.
You're deflecting from your poor choice of words by claiming that I'm obsessed with Begala.
To "admit" one is wrong usually implies that the person MEANS to say that they are wrong.
The needle Begala is trying to thread is unthreadable...
Duh! I've said that several times now.
... thereby, by definition, he admitted we are right.
LOL...your choice of the word "admit".
bingo—setting the table for 2016
no, you just can’t keep up to speed - you have a literal type B left brained accountant bureaucratic mindset yourself - my comments, which have raged across twitter BTW - are that Begala did admit it. He didn’t mean to. He wouldn’t agree, but he did amit it. That was my only point.
Sorry you took at as some sort of deep soul searching conversion on Begala’s part. That’s not how I meant it. I’ll think slower next time for the bureaucratic i dotters and t crossers when I’m making a big picture point.
What right-brained, liberal, delusional, emotionally-based, words-don't-have-meanings, blame-the-other-guy, utter nonsense.
The idea that you meant to convey was not conveyed because you used the incorrect word.
Words have meanings. I know so-called "right-brained" people including many liberals and apparently yourself tend to have trouble with that apparently(lol) deep concept.
And you still can't "admit" it(lol) like Bagala still can't admit/acknowledge/confess that liberalism is destined to fail.
You’re like the dumb member of the team in a group meeting....not up to speed with everyone else. Clearly Begala is not turning his back on a 30 year career as liberal spokesman - and anybody with IQ above 80 knew what I meant. Sorry that doesn’t include you.
And to initiate and then continue stupid insult, post after post, simply because I pointed out your incorrect usage, makes you a nasty, defensive dumbazz!
