How MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell distorts a Romney story
IBD Editorials ^ | June 19, 2012 | ANDREW MALCOM

Posted on 06/19/2012 9:40:53 AM PDT by Kaslin

Remember the fun the MSM had with Republican VP Dan Quayle in a school room holding up a mis-spelled word, without mentioning that the class teacher was the one who'd written out the word incorrectly?

Or how they made Republican President George H.W. Bush look stupid at a grocery store photo op making conversation with a checkout clerk about how the scanner worked? The repetitive media meme for Republicans is 'out of touch.'

Well, this may be the best/worst one yet: Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC making fun of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a rally describing the purchase of a hoagie at a local store. Watch this video and see the impression you get from MSNBC's Romney film clip.

Then scroll down for what Romney really said.

I really hate these people.

WaWa's are amazing, clean and scarily efficient. I am always impressed at their efficient turn over of customers that come thru the doors of the one near me. There can be 30 people in the store and there is never a line to wait for or pour a coffee, hardly a line at the register or a line waiting for your sandwich order.

The gubmint could take a lesson or two from whoever it is that run's and manages this chain.

And - Angrier Mitchell? Her hate and bitterness shines thru her work.

The look on Andrea Mitchell’s face as she is looking at Palin is one of loathing.

It reminds me of a line in the movie Titanic, as Rose recounts: "Mother looked at him like he was a bug."

Never heard of Wawa. Is that a sandwich made by Barbara Wawa?

It's not a terrible mistake, but let's not make up stories about it.

Right --->

Dan Quayle's "Potatoe" Incident

"Working from an inaccurate flash card prepared by a teacher..."

Who's making up stories? The fact that the card Quayle was handed had it spelled incorrectly was never ever mentioned in the press's relenless hectoring of Quayle over the silly goof.

I think you may want to rethink who among us is deluded...

Which one of us is supporting a socialist in the belief that he is going to save you from a socialist?

Its a rhetorical question, I know you wont get it. Its more for the benefit of those who do really... As is your inevitable reply, which I eagerly await.

Beck played the tape on the radio this morning. Mitchell’s version has Romney sounding like he’s dying on stage, making disconnected remarks that make no sense, and the audience responding in silence as if mystified what he’s talking about.

The real tape shows him making an extended point about the nature of government versus the private sector, with a responsive crowd following his every turn of phrase approvingly. And he makes a very good point, and he does it very articulately.

I have to say, even I was shocked at how nakedly they had altered the tape and the truth.

I’m no big Romney fan, but o describe Romney as non-conservative or a RINO is accurate. To describe him as a socialist means you cannot be taken seriously.

It’s not as much supporting Romney as it is getting rid of Obama. I realize there are some people who believe one is as bad as the other, but anyone who believes that is beyond delusional. Thankfully there aren’t enough who share your opinion to matter. I am sure you disagree but save your comments till Nov 7. I will be eagerly waiting to hear from you then.

Andrea to Ms. Palin: “How dare you! HOW. DARE. YOU! ... even think about, yet alone have the nerve to look so darn good. You...you...you...THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE!” (Snicker! Snicker! Eat your heart out Andrea....you fool-of-a-tool! ... or is it: “Tool-of-a-Fool?” Either way, Andrea’s a FOOL and a low-life TOOL. Ugly also, as are most, if not all RAT women!)

I suspect Dan Quayle was set up by a liberal teacher knowing that the MSM was going to be there filming it.

Izzy,

Potatoe is one of two correct spellings of the word. Potato is the other. Go look at your mom’s or your wife’s Betty Crocker Cookbook.

Really?

Have you taken a look at his record as Gov of Mass and how he describes himself as progressive in his views?

He is a socialist. Rationalize it all you want, doesn’t change the fact.

Romney is actually worse.

Don’t believe me? If he gets elected I WILL remind you and others about YOUR OWN WORDS when he, the progressives in the GOP and the progressives in the democrat party set romneycare in stone.

However, Nov 8th is a good day to catch back up. I still have a lot of people to talk out of voting for romney here in Wisconsin. And being that im the guy who usually gets people to vote for the GOP candidate, they WILL listen, and they WILL tell their friends. Thats the way it works.

No need for all this fighting though... A brokered convention will save us the need to cut each others throats. Lets dump romney and move on.

Being “principled” is a luxury one cannot afford if one intends to win THIS war. Ill save the principled behavior until AFTER we’ve won and for folks who deserve it.

Nope... Im one of the people that made sure Walker beat this recall attempt.

You must be one of those RINO losers who are trying to make the GOP another wing of the socialist party.

lol...

Who actually needs “professional help”?

The one who is supporting a proven socialist because he will save everyone from the other socialists by providing cover to the “progressives” in the GOP to vote for every damn progressive judicial appointment and every last entitlement program and etching obamacare as romneycare into stone? Isnt it obvious? the only way to beat socialism is to adopt it as your own.

OR

The one who recognizes that electing a socialist to LEAD the only organized opposition to socialism is an equivalent to SUICIDE.

Yeah... me too...

Im being forced to work against the party that should have been the opposition to socialism.

This is a f’ing tragedy. But maybe we can pull a silver lining out of it huh? by defeating romney we can weaken the progressives in the gop sufficiently to finally purge their asses.
