Andrea Mitchell Scolds Romney For Negative Super PAC Ads (Don't criticize Andrea's boy)
newsbusters ^ | 12/30/2011 | By Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/30/2011 4:00:28 PM PST by tobyhill

Has Andrea Mitchell appointed herself hall monitor of the 2012 elections? On her MSNBC show today, Mitchell asked Mitt Romney whether he had "an apology to make to the voters" for the negative ads against Newt Gingrich being run by Romney-friendly Super PACs.

For good measure, Mitchell scolded: "is that the kind of campaign you want to run: a negative campaign?"

Anyone care to speculate whether, next time Mitchell's granted an interview with Barack Obama, she will similarly scold him for the barrage of negative advertising his campaign will unleash?

ANDREA MITCHELL: Newt Gingrich has tanked, and by all accounts it's because of the Super PAC barrage of ads from both you and some of the other campaigns. But the Super PACs that are supporting Mitt Romney have just been savage against Newt Gingrich. I know you've said you'd go to the Big House if anyone can establish that you were involved, but the fact is it's your former colleagues, your friends, former colleagues contributed anonymously a million dollars. Do you have an apology to make to the voters in Iowas and around the country for the kind of negative advertising that's been run?

Should we scold her for being an obnoxious yenta and getting in Sarah Palin’s face and generally being a major pain in the @$$ to the American body politic?

It’s amazing how ugly are the liberal women who sleep their way to the upper echelon of “journalism”.
Especially in a visual medium like TV.

Personally, I don't care. Mitt Romney and any other Republican who goes on MsNBC deserves whatever question is put to him or her.

I don't feel Romney's pain.

Andrea Mitchell: “WE alone have monopoly on attacking GOP conservative candidates.”


Romney for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Hell hath new fury like a women scorned. With that said, one my garner Sarah has no love for the RNC / GOP /Punditry Establishment, and as your post noted, they tried their best to do her in.

So lets say on Jan 2nd she says something nice about Newt...

I'd love it if she did, especially after how they treated her and Herman.....

There’s only one person who pays attention to that fossilized piece of crap andrea, and that person is the equally old traitor Greenspam.

That SOB and his plunge protection team cost me a bundle back in the 1990s. I have a lamppost waiting for that chicken gizzard when it’s time to hang traitors, and greenscam is a traitor.

I think you ought to frame your comment as an undeniable truth when speaking of old, ugly, leftist females.

I’d make a bumpersticker of your comment, but that calls for much contemplation and at least one or two bottles of Johnnie Walker. I don’t have the time or kidneys for that herculan job.

Cheers, FRiend

Did you hear that, Rev. Wildmon and other, Andrea Mitchell said Newt Gingrich has tanked. Time to switch to Santorum.

So did you disagree with Cain’s kind remarks about Greenspan? Has Greenspan switched parties?

“So did you disagree with Cain’s kind remarks about Greenspan?”

I have no idea. What “kind” remarks did Mr. Cain make about greenscam?

“Has Greenspan switched parties?”

From what to what?

Greenscam has always been a member of the Wall Street fascist party. If he switched, you tell me what party that thieving pig joined.

If you’re trying to defend that damn, thieving crook, I won’t have a kind ear to your arguments.

Your turn.

No, not end of story, read the text:

It's very clear that Andrea Mitchell is sticking up for Newt, could it be that she see's so liberal RINO quality in him ?

” - - - Andrea Mitchell supporting Newt? Puh-leez! What universe would that be in?”

Well, Alan Greenspan is Andrea Mitchell’s husband, and Alan has worked with Newt in the past, and - - - what are friends for, anyway?

BTW, do you REALLY think that Newt would ask Alan to come out of retirement? Maybe Andrea wants to replace Hilly, the current Secretary of Statements? DC is that other, other universe.

I've heard Slanderia's own peers refer to her as an "opinion maker". In other words, even they know she's a propagandist.

Matthews, Vanden Heuvel, and the like, along with her, are the most dishonest, disgusting pit vipers in the business.

And they would probably consider that a compliment.

You're welcome, dears. Bless your hearts.
