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!"

Conservatives (not Republicans) have learned the art of "critical thinking".
I get a kick out of liberals trying to explain why we vote how we do. They just don't get it.

So, again, the democrat/liberals/socialists show their hatred and prejudices: EVEN THEIR "OWN" media can't criticize their "leaders" - when those leaders are clearly wrong.

What is their motto: "All democrat/only democrat/no criticism ever .... All repubbie/only repubbie/all criticism forever?"

Is their ANY room for discussion or disagreement over strategy and tactics allowed within their party? Is this group of socialists forbidding even their own "media" from discussing the give and take of political tactics?

"In other words, at one time, to de-spin the news, you had to have the dedication of a sovietologist and you had to read carefully between the lines. Most of us in the conservative camp have done this our whole lives, reflexively, it comes naturally. "

Spot on recollection. Until about 1996, I felt so all alone. You'd rarely meet another conservative thinker, so you had to do it all yourself in the wilderness. It really was out of 1984, mind control.

Yep, the "champions" of the First Amendment say you must go fight in Iraq to have an opinion they disagree with.

But, then, they will ignore and demean the voices of those who have fought in Iraq.

Consistency is certainly not the hobgoblin of liberal minds.

Unless the law is changed here in Massachusetts concerning his ability to run for 2 offices simultaneously, I can't see Le Kerry running for Prez again.

On the other hand, the Mass. Legislature did change the law in 2004 in order to prevent Romney from appointing a successor after Kerry won the White House.

For me, it was 1991, when Rush hit the airwaves in my town. I was floored that someone who thought as I did was on the radio. I knew then I was not alone!

PBS is not NPR.

PBS is usually liberal, but Lehrer isn't too bad. I like that they actually cover stories in depth on the NewsHour without the extreme bias of NPR.

What's the difference? Both conscript your tax dollars to fund a view you may or may not support. That one is ultra-wackadoo and the other is only semi-wackadoo doesn't make much of a difference IMHO.

You seem shocked that this would be the case. America has always had commies and socialists since there have been such people.

In fact, in the early-mid 1900's, they were at dangerously high levels.

If you think that America somehow will gain tons of them though, you are mistaken. They will never be a political force capable of actually winning elections or coming close. But, they will help peel off Dem votes if they become strong enough.

Actually, Kerry is the quintessential narcissist - hence the inability to see himself as needing advice or as being wrong. The "hero in Vietnam" and medals for nothing are all symptomatic of this serious personality defect. His call for a filibuster is a reflection of this same disorder. He is a "look at me" junkie.
The godfathers in the Democratic Party will destroy him to make way for Hilary.

Mark Shields a "Republican stooge"

That is just loony. But what do you expect from moonbats.

This is their essence, A.C.:

---Pro-freedom of speech...as long as it agrees with their own.

---Pro-military...but only if it is a Democrat who fought in a war that he hated.

---Pro-life...unless it hasn't been born yet.

---Pro-gun control...so long as they control it.

---Pro-freedom of religion...so long as it is the one religion that they believe will kill them if they stand against it(Islamofacism)

---Anti-torture...unless they get to administer it

---Freedom to protest...but not to BE protested.

---Pro-term limits...unless it is a Clinton.

---Pro-high taxes...for everyone else.

---Pro-war...when THEY start it

---Pro-dictator...unless it's Bush (whom THEY call a dictator, not me)

---Pro-warrantless spying...unless it's done by a Republican president, when THEY are not in control of either house of Congress)

Shall I go on? Must I go on?

I agree. That could be the motivation for the NY Times to run two editorials which squish Kerry like a vise would.

The first editorial screamed for a Democrat with a spine to get behind a filibuster.

After Kerry called for a filibuster, the Times's second editorial called his attempts "awkward" and "quixotic."
