Disagree. The whole government shutdown was about Obamacare. The media said the Republicans lost.

Now it looks like they might have been right after all. Perfect set up for the next go round 2 months from now.

The press does NOT want to cover this reality.


Stop blaming the media. It’s a sidebar distraction. The main problem right now is we do not have an engaged opposition party to fight rampaging Alinskyite Dems.

The Senate GOP preemptively surrendered on obamacare. Boehner had to be dragged into the battle and then he did the absolutely minimum required.

Now the beltway GOP are giving kenyancare “room” to fail. It’s the same old loser tip toe to the election strategy from the GOPe.

Don’t confuse what the establishment does with what Patriots like Cruz are doing. When Fox is putting a liberal like Graham front and center you know the fix is in.

Nope.

Blaming the media is part of THIS thread.

There are hundreds of threads on incompetent Republicans (which I will concede there are far too many) and the GOP-e, but the Sunday show thread is about the Media and analyzing their memes, reasoning for guests and what questions they're asking.

Find another thread if that bothers you.

“Stop blaming the media. It’s a sidebar distraction. The main problem right now is we do not have an engaged opposition party to fight rampaging Alinskyite Dems.”

It’s not a distraction. Not in This day and age. Whether it’s lack of coverage of this weeks scandal/WH screw up or new reports about the members of Congress and average Americans trying to push back against the scourge of Liberalism....the media is at the center of all of it in this modern information era.

The mantra of “if we don’t cover it...it didn’t happen” is still prevalent on the MSM news rooms and sadly there are too many low information voters blindly accepting what they hear.

And when the media DOES talk about TEA Party folks like Cruz and Lee and others...look at how they are portrayed. That is a direct result of the media and the blame rests squarely in their lap. They shape perceptions.

The Libs and their allies think about “optics” in everything they do from the time they get up till they go to sleep at night they stratigize about how they can craft an issue in the media to smear the other side.

The media’s not a side bar...not by a long shot. And if we go out there and try to get the attention of the MSM with shouts of Rules for Radicals and such...they’ll find a way to make us look like a bunch of paranoid racists.

If we want the WH and control of Congress back it’s gonna have to be done by making an end run around the behemoth that is the MSM.

There is no "media" except for conservative talk shows and newspapers...and that is about to come under heavy assault.The RATagandists are easily identifiable by their actions and are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the DNC.

Yeah we do, they are called TEApublicans, as there are no TEApartiers on the other side. They will drag the RINOs kicking and screaming into the fray, and either they will fight or get replaced.

All RINOs should be replaced anyway wherever possible.
