Jim Lehrer (PBS) ridicules Kerry for calling for filibuster from "the ski slopes"; Democrats furious
PBS ^ | January 27, 2006 | nwrep

Posted on 01/28/2006 9:55:11 AM PST by nwrep

Jim Lehrer, on his NewsHour program on PBS on Friday night, ridiculed John Kerry for calling for filibuster from "the ski slopes." Click the link above for the entire transcript. Liberal Mark Shields and conservative columnist David Brooks both joined Lehrer for some Kerry bashing.

This exchange is making left-wing radicals furious, who are now calling Mark Shields a "Republican stooge" and a "Fox News Democrat." One leftist website had this to say to Mark Shields, long time CNN analyst:

"This is the most despicable performance in your long career of pretending to be a Democrat. If you love George Bush with such devotion, then go register as a Republican today. Better yet, pick up a gun and go fight his disastrous war in Iraq. And give your "Democratic" spot on PBS to a REAL Democrat - someone with the cojones to stand up to the Emperor Without Clothes and his mouthpiece, Jim Lehrer!"

Here is what Davos is all about:

When I arrived at the university studio for the televised trans-Atlantic debate with George Soros, the financier, and other representatives of the global elite gathered in Davos, Switzerland, a visibly shaken Florian Rochat of the Swiss delegation was waiting for me.

Swiss are known for being impassive, but Florian was visibly shaken. "They are arresting protestors in Davos and other places in Switzerland," he told me. "They’re killing democracy in our country. Our friends there are asking you to support them in calling for the shutting down of the World Economic Forum."

Just a bunch of Commies worshipping at the alter of $oro$.

Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters

There is no question Kerry is running in 08. He is an absolute idiot and has no chance of winning the nomination or the presidency. The Dems are dumb but not that dumb.

NPR is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. Any remarks by Shields/Lehrer et al should be cleared by the Party leadership before being aired.

Shields and Lehrer should either step down or else apologise for abusing their microphone. And then step down. They've shown themselves to be unreliable spokesmen for the Party.

Libs don't tolerate anyone breaking out of lockstep even for a second. For a bunch who prides themselves on being "freethinkers" they sure hate people thinking freely.

John Kerry for calling for filibuster from "the ski slopes."

More proof that JFK hasn't got a clue as to how he might be perceived by those outside of D.C.

You'd think his handlers might know better, however, guessing this reaction might come about.

That's their favorite line. Yep, the "champions" of the First Amendment say you must go fight in Iraq to have an opinion they disagree with.

And they've started using it in debates that have nothing to do with the Iraq War.

MARK SHIELDS: Sure. John Kerry wants to run again. Mo Udall, the great congressman from Arizona, said the only known cure for the presidential virus is embalming fluid. He's still got it; it is in his system.

I always thought Kerry looked like he was on embalming fluid. It hasn't reduced his presidential ambitions, however.

Hey stupid Dems, this is how you make new Republican converts by bashing people like Lehrer and Shields for offering constructive criticism. And that's why you dumb dumbs never learn because you usual don't want to acknowledge your faults. Speaking as a former DEM myself.

Agreed. It made sense for the Dems to nominate Kerry in 2004 because he represents the Dem view perfectly, and there really wasn't anyone who had any chance of beating Bush anyway. Now that they have a chance to win, they'd be crazy to waste their vote on someone who can't win just because he represents their views.

DAVID BROOKS: Well, I thought he should have done it while wind surfing; it would have been a more popular.

LMAO!

I don't understand why his state would elect him. He is always at the ski slope or some other play place. He is rarely in the Senate. He is always shooting his mouth off and looking stupid. He is out-of-touch. I guess that fits with his out-of-touch state.

Senator SESSIONS: "We can all agree, I suppose, that it is an international filibuster because it was apparently hatched in Davos, Switzerland, where Senator Kerry now is with those masters of the universe trying to figure out the world economy. Maybe they ought to spend more time trying to get gasoline prices down than worrying about conjuring up a filibuster of a judge as able as Judge Alito."

I predict we will see a third party develop within the next few years. I think that a good 10-20% of the American people are either socialists or communists. Their numbers have grown to the point that they will have their own voice and the strength to support their own candidates. Scary, but I think that it is happening. They also now have the financial support that they didn't have in the past.

David Brooks really isn't a "conservative" either, but I guess he passes for one at the highbrow liberal nutcase NYC cocktail parties.

It's interesting though that I've never heard anyone call him a "Republican."

Why else do you think they are butchering him in the press? The reality is that he's over there for the World Economic Forum, a legitimate event for a US senator to attend (even if I think it's hooey).

The press, the communications wing of the Democrat party, needs to pound Kerry into submission before he can get a footing for the '08 campaign. They hate him. He lost to Bush, who in their eyes is an incompetent imbecile whom a cadaver could have trounced in '04.

Sure, it's fun to see them eat their own, but a Kerry ticket in '08 would be a GOP dream.

Actually the way I saw it was that Lehrer was actually laughing at/with the Bush spokesman who jokingly spoke the line - thought he handled it well and was laughing along.

I don't think this is that scary. It will merely triangulate the left into moderate left, extreme left/communist left.
