ABC’s Stephanopoulos Hits Back at Rand Paul for Suggesting He Colluded with Obama
mediaite.com ^ | August 15th, 2013 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 08/15/2013 7:04:04 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

Speaking with Laura Ingraham this afternoon, George Stephanopoulos addressed Republican Sen. Rand Paul‘s suggestion that the ABC host purposely aided the Obama White House in driving the “war on women” narrative of 2012.

In an interview with Geraldo Rivera last week, Sen. Paul asserted that Stephanopoulos’ “obscure” question about contraception during a GOP debate might hint that the newsman colluded with the Obama campaign to generate the resultant “war on women” narrative.

George needs to prove he didn’t collude. After all the charge is out there now.

George provided further aid by covering Barry on his “my Muslim faith” comment.

Steph's question was to Romney and it came out of left field.

That was the first time in the primaries, in the election cycle, that states banning contraception was even mentioned.

Romney was tongue-tied, because the question was so out of left field. No state, IIRC he responded, that Romney knew of had any intention of banning contraception.

Even Rush Limbaugh has pointed to that question in that forum was the opening salvo in the lefts/Dems claim the Republicans had a war against women.

I agree with Paul on this one. That question really came out of left field. It was clearly a “gotcha” question for Romney, who was the presumptive front-runner. Way too many coincidences and tie-ins with Obama 2012 for Stephanopolous (sp?) to be under the microscope for this one.

Of course the question was a planted setup. That was obvious that very night. How stupid does Snuffalafagus think the world is?

Anyone remember that it was George who was able to get through to George Bush (the elder) on the Larry King show as a “random” caller the week before the election of Bill Clinton? After the election, it was revealed that a producer of the show called George Snuffullufagus and patched him through. George has colluded before.

“Yeah, it was a billion to one shot.” Sorry, Steffi, not buying it. If it wasn’t overt collusion then perhaps you got played like a Stradivarius in some “chance” encounter where the seed was planted. But do you have a logical and believable explanation why that question sailed in from left field (npi)?

Very little since they can't find anyone from Columbia who knew Obama.

OF COURSE that little weasel Stephanopoulus colluded with the Ubanga campaign.
Kudos to Rand Paul for having the guts to remind people about that.

Steffi’s dad was a priest and one of his fellow altar boys from back then told me he was a real weenie.

Agreed, using the Clinton standards it’s not the nature of the evidence but the seriousness of the charge! Let’s us their standards on them for a change.

Stupid enough to let leftist activists like him and Candy Crowley moderate Republican debates.

No brainer.
Steffy Stephalopagus, Clinton acolyte & natural JournoHack, championed this issue at a GOP debate when no one knew about it but the Obama War Room manufacturing political issues division.
Steffy must be psychic.

Bingo! just a coincidence that Candy had the White House briefing transcribed on the podium with her to provide cover on Bhengazi.

Stephen colluded with Obama to trick Americans into thinking he was not of Muslim faith.

The Santorum interview: here, 3 Jan 2012. Perhaps that was the catalyst but the RATs were ready to go with Fluke and that took lead time. As I say above, Steffi might have been played as part of the war on women.

Collude - is that the new keyword for “sex” among those of George’s and Zero’s special gender?

"As I say above, Steffi might have been played as part of the war on women. "

Most likely analogous to firing on Fort Sumpter. (Which out make lib Steffe a creepy ass cracker.)

Actually I was referring to the words of Dingy Harry regarding Romney’s (alleged non) taxes, but the Clintons act the same way. It’s a ‘rat propaganda technique.
