Mitchell says the media has always laid off of examining Romney's record and the clash between the elements that make up the Republican party.

"They believe that the Bain Capital record is their best argument against Mitt Romney," NBC's Andrea Mitchell said about the Obama campaign.

"What you pointed out in your opening segment, and the lead in to the Cory Booker interview, was that the media have not really dwelled on how many of these Republicans are not endorsing Mitt Romney in a very, how would you describe the way they've been endorsing Mitt Romney? An elevator closing on -- George W. Bush," Andrew Mitchell said to MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow. #

As soon as Romney locks up the nomination, the media free ride ends, and the slime machine spins up.

When it comes to “Whores” I find Mitchell to be a bigger “Whore” than Mittens. Belive it, or not.

I wish someone with some video skilz could find the segment of Andrea Mitchell's reaction to Sarah Palin's acceptance speech in 2008.

It was priceless.

That is a familiar tune. Where did I hear that.

Oh, now I remember, four years ago:

As soon as McCain locks up the nomination, the media free ride ends, and the slime machine spins up.

That or dementia.

One of those rare birds that loses their edge at 65 and yet likes the fact she spouts indecipherable gibberish.

Andrea Mitchell has been getting a “free ride” all her life of posing as a journalist.

Can’t we sue her for this? After all, she has perpetrated a fraud on the American people for decades.

I think Greenspan got the “Reverse Krupman’s Curse” with Mitchell.

If they want to rest Obammy’s reelection on capitalism, Romney would have to present a choice to the country - do you want to be OWS global communists in cradle to grave equality in poverty, or do you want to be free people, with property rights and the opportunity to start businesses and be independent? Did the immigrants run to this country for it’s communist oppression or it’s freedom?

But Mittens could never say that. He’s a progressive and will ignore the attacks (like Bush/Rove in his second term) or try to out liberal the liberals. Mittens is Obama with a different set of corporate winners and losers.

Anybody with any political sense knew what was going to happen to Romney once he had the nomination sewed up

Doesn't really matter which one. Same effect. We're stuck with her until she attains her eternal reward.

Andrea’s right.

Romney has gotten a free ride from both the Liberal and Conservative media.

If I am Willard anything Obama wants revealed comes with School records or start running ads asking what does Obama have to hide.

How long did it take Hillary and Bill to endorse the “One”? Many of Hillary’s supporters never did endorse him after the way the media and his handlers went after her.

I never felt sorry for the wretch but the Bosnia landing story got an awful lot of press for another one of a Clinton’s many lies. They spent 10 years covering their asses and then comes Obama and they turned quickly.

He was toxic to the Dems in '10. They couldn't run away from him fast enough or far enough. They not only refused to have him campaign for them but some slammed him in in their re-election speeches or failed to mention his name out of fear of connection to his policies.
