Race Card! Andrea Mitchell Suggests Sununu 'Take Back' Comment That Obama Is 'Lazy'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/04/2012 11:38:26 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

John Sununu, did you just call Barack Obama lazy? Quick: someone call the PC police! But before we slap the race-card cuffs on you, Andrea Mitchell, being the nice MSM lady she is, will offer you the chance to take back your horrifying comment!

That's essentially what went down on Mitchell's MSNBC show this afternoon. Critiquing President Obama's listless debate performance, Romney adviser Sununu said that it revealed how "how lazy and detached" he is. Replied an appalled Mitchell: "Governor, I want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. Did you really mean to call Barack Obama, the President of the United States, lazy?" Sununu did not back down, providing an example of a recent statement by President Obama revealing how he was reluctant to prepare for the debate.

So what word do the pc police suggest we use instead if a person of color happens to be lazy? Or does that never happen?

Where’s the list of all of Andrea’s peers ( and maybe even herself) who called George W Bush “lazy” over the years?

Andrea, are you implying that blacks are lazy? That certainly sounds racist to me, Andrea.

Yeah, he took a trip to Boulder Dam and other places in the Las Vegas metropolitan area instead of studying up. Studying up for the debate was a “drag” using Obama’s own words. Sununu is exactly right.

When Obama interviewed for “law professor” ya know what the initial reaction was? NO —they did NOT want him. The faculty thought he was blase and presumptuous.

ONLY AFTER some heavy admin big-wigs got involved did he land the job

After working there awhile you know what they said about him? That he was LAZY and LEFT EARLY.

Yup. Not very well reported —for obvious reasons— but you can look it up.

This story needs a picture...

Can someone with great creative skills make an Obama picture with him sitting on an upside down 5-gallon bucket in a wife-beater throwing dice against a wall?

At the end of your video link, Andrea starts talking about fact checking.

I was going to add “shiftless”, might as well double down if they’re gonna call you “racist” anyway.

Lazy, shiftless, arrogant, narcissistic, and of low intellect.

How’s that, Andrea?

“Andrea, you ignorant slut.

Here’s a copy of Webster’s dictionary. Now, if you’re unable to look up the words ‘lazy’ and ‘disengaged’ for yourself, kindly insert it up your azz so that your liberal brain can assimilate the definitions by direct absorption.

Next question?”

I love John Sununu! He is a straight shooter and he has been going after every one of the media Ubama sycophants!!

The media have so many "in-kind" donations to Ubama that they need to be registered lobbyists for the Ubama campaign! It is beyond disgusting at this point.

Andrea is all wee-weed up about her hero and can't let someone say something bad about him. Andrea is shocked because she has been reading her own mail all these years. Ubama has been rallying around his Rat friends for four years telling the Pubbies to stuff it up their rear-ends while he goes to the golf course. Barack is the laziest occupant of the Whitehouse. It has to do with his work ethic, nothing more! He has lived in a world where he has been given free passes and now it is payday! There appears to be around 50% of the electorate that have their eyes open ... will they go to the polls? We'll see.

This makes the 2nd time in recent months that John Sununu ended his segment laughing out loud at Andrea Mitchell.

She is dumbfounded!

"Are you saying Barack Obama, the President of the United States lazy?"

"YES !!"

If I could tell you how many people said that Obama was “off.” and I said, no he wasnt, this is how he normally is without a telepromter. It has been all over the net for years on what a poor speaker he is.

Leftist media refused to report.

Mitchell was in the dust bin of history until she married that old creep - suddenly she becomes a “mover and shaker” in Washington. Pathetic! She pretends she is “offended” but most people remember how many nasty lies she had flung at W, go away, pizza face, retire and sink beneath the waves, ;)

I don’t see anybody mentioning it but Sununu nailed him as lazy a couple of weeks ago when the issue was about sitting through his intelligence briefs. He has missed half of them. Supposedly he reads the summaries. Who believes that?

I’ve been in and around the military now almost 40 years. When you are a commander and people’s lives are on the line you read the information that people put in front of you.

Most sheeperals have their own sense of self-worth so wrapped up in the “brilliant” personalities they support that they prop them up no matter what. Otherwise, they, the sheeperals, lose some of their self esteem.

Her response is PRICELESS!

Look at her expression when he doesn’t take it back!

Ironically, at the beginning she KNOWS he will say something that is not “shy.”

She’s a hoot!

“I want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. Did you really mean to call Barack Obama, the President of the United States, lazy?”

...after calling him “incompetent” and “detached”, she can only hit him up on “lazy” too funny, since it implies that she agree with the other descriptions, or, at a minimum, doesn’t consider them to be as off-target.
