Shields, Brooks on Obama's Second Term and Hillary Clinton's Exit From State [Worship]
PBS ^ | 1/25/13

JEFFREY BROWN: All right, the week began with the inauguration. We all talked on Monday. It ends with the White House appointment of a new chief of staff, Mark.

What does the new team, what does the language you heard this week tell you about the president that Barack Obama wants to be?

MARK SHIELDS: I think, like all re-elected presidents, he sees a mandate, an expanded vision of a mandate from the electoral victory.

But he realizes time is short. And I think he is not showing the same level of patience with the Congress that he showed in his first term, a certain impatience, a realization that probably this is his best year, in all likelihood, if history is any guide...

DAVID BROOKS: Well, I think we're going have a little -- a bunch of squabbles. But the chances of us getting any tax reform or entitlement reform are minuscule. And so we will probably find some mediocre fix for the reconciliation and the budget stuff.

But we will spend relatively little time on big stuff. I think judging still by the inauguration, he's thinking the long-term. He's thinking the Republican Party is extraordinarily weak. I'm going to try to go around the country and try to build a new majority on pretty liberal terms.

And it's not about passing legislation over the next four years. It's about really weakening the other side and building up my side.

TOPICS: Government; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: bias; cult; media
Blah blah blah.

When Republicans are re-elected, the media IMMEDIATELY begins to condemn him for not working with the opposition.

This assclown has made the economy WORSE and NO ONE IN THE MEDIA GIVES A DAMN.

..does anyone doubt major MSM editors and publishers are getting special treatment and favors from this administration? Let’s see, could it be “insider trading” that all elected officials can barter with?.....wanna play, do what we say!

I think the LSM has been getting stimulus money (aka our tax dollars) since baraq became the dear leader.
Along with an agreement to be obama’s cheerleader.

What is really sick about all this is the same media that is Constitutionally protected is openly supporting a man who is hell bent on destroying that very document.

Four years is a long time especially if you have a brain tumor and are going blind

Back in the mid 80's I used to watch the Mclaughlin Group on Sundays and it was Mark Shields and Eleanor Clift against Morton Kondracke and Fred Barnes usually. I guess "Mort-on" was considered a centrist back then. Shields especially was so pathetic and impotent, totally defensive and bitter in the days of Reagan. He is a human slug.

It is unbelievable to me that these people have turned the tables without the slightest bit of achievement. Their policies fail at every turn, yet they win elections.

To me, it is the result of a media that has increasingly pandered to the sinful and corrupt in the human being. They have systematically and unceasingly attacked and undermined all that is good and righteous, and have replaced it with selfishness.

The people are breaking bad, and tyranny will be the result.

The sure things we will see in the new administration are more gays, more anti Americanism, anti gun, anti property rights, anti practical energy, anti liberty, and anti everything remotely associated with old white guys or the illusion of white privilege. Obama’s new administration will hit the ground sucking, and they will suck more and more everyday. America wanted it’s very own Hitler, and now we have him, minus any ideas to make the country stronger or richer. Enjoy!
