Posted on 06/20/2012 2:55:42 PM PDT by chessplayer
In an attempt to twist the Obama administration's Fast & Furious gun running scandal into bad news for Republicans, on Wednesday's The Daily Rundown on MSNBC supposed Republican pundit Michelle Bernard proclaimed: "...when you think about just the damage that has been done over the last year to the GOP's brand, this is just another adds more fuel to the fire."
Bernard was referring to the possibility of Attorney General Eric Holder being held in contempt of Congress for not providing documents about the failed policy to lawmakers. Instead of questioning the White House, Bernard continued to rant: "...this is just another thing that I think gives the Obama administration and the Obama campaign a little bit more fuel to go to the American public and say, 'Why won't they just do their job? We don't elect members of the Congress to come in and beat up on the Attorney General and be obstructionists. Ask them to do their job and back off of Eric Holder.' It makes no sense."

That’s why the MSM has been ignoring the story as much as possible. They’re in the tank for the Republican Party.
About the same as saying high unemployment is good for all of us. These people would say the sky is pink if 0 commended them to do so.
Validation and more proof positive that Liberalism is a mental disorder.
This is good news. The RATS must be really scared if little helpers are off saying this type of stuff.
If prominent Republicans won’t give F&F the attention it deserves, showing what happened, how obstructionist Holder and the Administration have been, then the “GOP is a bunch of factionalist meanies” meme might indeed prevail.
Is anyone listening? Is Romney going to address this or treat it like a dead skunk at the end of a ten-foot pole?
Wishful thinking at best. MSNBC is a laughing stock, nobody watches it and their talking heads are idiots. Can’t understand why we at FR even care what MSNBC does or says.
Any democrats vote for?
lol, too funny!
Of course not!!!
Michael Steele was/is worse than worthless.
All too predictable.
All too predictable.
Americans Say They’re Better Off Since Obama Took Office in Poll (Anyone believe that?!)
Bloomberg Poll: Obama 53 - Romney 40
They are working for Obama’s campaign and have no business calling themselves a news organization. They are a disgrace to the profession.
They are Goebbels acolytes, i.e., if you repeat a lie enough, it will become accepted as truth.
After a bad couple of weeks (unemployment numbers, Wisconsin, Rose Garden speech, expectations of SCOTUS slapdown) liberals are reaching a point of literal panic. Rationality - never a common trait among liberals - will become even more rare as the weeks and months march by.
Up is down. Black is white. Libs are smart.
We are clearly at war with the MSM and the rats. It is open warfare and the projectiles are their lies.
This and the polls by bloomberg released today on the race, health care and feelings of prosperity are part of a massive and ongoing mis-information campaign to confound and confuse the issues as much as possible.
Even to answer the lies adds to the confusion. The sheeple suffer information overload and tune out. They are not mentally capable of sorting truth from fiction that sounds like truth from someone they want to believe that is asserted with shameless authority.
Here is what I fear will lead to an oblabla win:
When confused people will stay with the status quo. They freeze in place.
Let’s see. There’s 170 crime scenes involving Dem DOJ trafficked guns these idiots are responsible for by running an entrapment trace scam They botched, and the people Calling them on their initial murderous stupidity and subsequent stonewalling cover up are the ones who look bad?
Obama Leads In Poll As Voters View Romney As Out Of Touch
Jun 20, 2012
Obama leads Romney 53 percent to 40 percent among likely voters, even as the public gives him low marks on handling the economy and the deficit, and six in 10 say the nation is headed down the wrong track, according to the poll conducted June 15- 18.
They are so wrong that they are a source of knowledge because we know the opposite is always true. They are like the person who, when they like a movie, you know for sure you will hate it. Useful idiots? Well, idiots for sure.
This is like the night of the Walker Recall where they called Obama the winner.
So when do they change their letters to BONBC.
MSM is trying to peel off the weak-kneed RINOs.
The only thing worse than these MSNBC frauds is somebody who listens to them and goes, yeh, that sounds reasonable.
Where does MSNBC find these people? You think they’d come up with one person who wasn’t an Obama groupie.
Does it really matter anymore what MSNBC says?
Given the fact that this being an election year, timing of all this needs to be handled with care.
If Holder goes down with or without Obama BEFORE he secures the nomination it could well open the door for Hillary to step in.
Seems to me that the best time to go for the jugular would be after the dems convention but before the election.
I agree. If the GOP was really doing its job, they would be writing up articles of impeachment.
Why doesn't pundit Michelle Bernard cares at all about the hundreds of brown-skinned people brutally murdered by Obama/Holder's guns.
Opposing this investigation into the murders of hundreds of Mexicans is racist.
Delusional liberals have sharply upped their medications, I see.
PMSNBC is not main stream. They are a tiny boutique cable channel catering to a miniscule clientele.
They can make up their own story, but it is bad for the Obama administration.
Here’s a stock tip that is actually worth something. Find out who is advertising on PMSNBC and short the stock. They obviously had no idea what they are doing.
Is Bagdad Bob writing the script for PMSNBC?
These yoyos at MSNBC probably cheering for Jerry Sandusky to be acquitted....
These morons are clueless. By using executive priviledge....Obama pretty much admits de facto that they were selling weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartels
These fools must all be on acid.
Reality? Nope, never heard of it.
Since MSNBC are pretty much paid shrills for the DNC .... What do you expect them to say....
You have to pander to their base, though tiny, it’s all they got....
Their base is liberal moon bat progressives who expect to be lied too to validate their moonbattitness ....
Michelle Bernard @MichelleBernard 1d
Do R’s despise D’s so much that they’re willing to destroy the country with partisan politics? Rep Issa should be ashamed.
Michelle Bernard @MichelleBernard 1d
If Rep Issa wants Eric Holder out, POTUS should just nominate Holder as next US Supreme Court justice. #ericholderforscotus
Michelle Bernard @MichelleBernard 5d
Watching Real Time w-Bill Maher. My fav economist, Joseph Stiglitz is on tonight! Also, my friend and colleague @finneyk. Love Bill Maher!
Michelle Bernard @MichelleBernard 30 May
Ran into Eleanor Clift @ Current TV this evening. She’s one of my favorite people!
“Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele followed Bernard’s lead in MSNBC’s noon hour by claiming the Fast & Furious investigation was “not good” for the House GOP —
Michael Steele was/is worse than worthless.”
