    "Sudden Respect" is our NewsBusters topic category for situations in which the liberal media suddenly lavishes praise on a conservative because he is now criticizing fellow Republicans or conservatives. Maybe we need a new category: "Sudden Disrespect," to cover cases in which the MSM turns on a Democrat who dares to not march in liberal lockstep. Joy Reid provided a perfect example of the phenomenon on her MSNBC show today. Her guest was Bill Burton, who was a bosom buddy of the liberal media back when he was one of the earliest members of Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, later...

    An adviser to Howard Schultz on Tuesday slammed President Trum over a tweet Trump sent this week attacking the former Starbucks CEO. Bill Burton, during an interview on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront," called the tweet "childish games" and said Schultz's main priority is defeating Trump. Schultz has said he is seriously considering running for president as an independent in 2020. Trump in a tweet Monday said Schultz "doesn't have the 'guts' to run" for president." "You have a president who is setting an awful tone on Twitter. It's taking everybody else down in the gutter with him," Burton said when...

    Washington Post ^ | July 3, 2013 | By Racheal Weiner
    In the summer of 2010, with Republicans poised to take over the House and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) in line to lead the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the White House started urging reporters to write negative stories about the congressman’s past, a new book says. New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich describes what he says were the anti-Issa efforts in “This Town,” a condemnation of Washington self-obsession and self-promotion, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Post. According to Leibovich, former Obama deputy press secretary Bill Burton and suggested the reporter look into Issa’s past....

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | 28 Sep 2012 | RB
    On Thursday, Mother Jones reported that billionaire financier George Soros was "panicked" that Mitt Romney would win the election--and then scrubbed the story without explanation. Mother Jones--the left-wing outlet that published the incomplete "47 percent" video of Romney--was reporting on Soros's reasons for donating $1 million to the Paul Begala / Bill Burton run Priorities USA Action PAC on Sep. 27. Priorities USA Action is the same super PAC that ran the now-infamous "Soptic Ad" in which a man falsely linked Romney to his wife's death from cancer years after Romney left Bain Capital to run the Olympics. Soros now...

    Greg pulled the clip last night and Allahpundit wrote it up, but it's worth revisiting for a few reasons.  I'll let AP set the stage:   The first 3:45 is just background stuff, so feel free to skip it, and (b) the rest of it represents quite possibly the most sustained bout of skepticism on cable TV towards an Obama mouthpiece that Team Hopenchange has had to endure in four years. If you can’t watch it all, just watch Burton for two or three minutes starting at 4:15. The Obama campaign has been shamelessly lying its collective ass off about...

    Complete Title: The Soros Summit - Free Beacon exclusive: Inside the secret Miami meeting of George Soros’s liberal conspiracy ### A secretive network of left-wing billionaires and their political operatives descended on the luxurious Biltmore Hotel in Miami over the weekend to discuss strategy for the coming elections. The location of the conference had been kept a closely guarded secret by the members and guests of Democracy Alliance (DA), a collection of ultra-wealthy liberal donors formed in 2005, and is reported here in a Washington Free Beacon exclusive. Attendees roamed the grounds at the 150-acre tropical resort on their way...
  • To fight conservative efforts, Democrats form fund groups

    04/30/2011 8:24:00 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 18 replies · 1+ views
    Two former White House aides launched a pair of independent groups Friday to defend President Obama and fight the array of conservative efforts that poured money into the last elections, adopting the same tactics condemned by Obama. The move by Bill Burton, a former Obama deputy press secretary, and Sean Sweeney, who was a top aide to former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, confirmed the sharp reversal by Democrats on the use of undisclosed political spending. Burton and Sweeney said they were moved to create the outside groups to fend off conservatives such as the billionaire Koch brothers and American...

    Dr. John C. Drew, a grant writing consultant in Laguna Niguel, Calif., tells Newsmax he met Obama in 1980 when Obama was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Drew had just graduated from Occidental and was attending graduate school at Cornell University. Drew’s then girlfriend, Caroline Boss — now Grauman-Boss — knew Obama because she shared classes with him at Occidental.... During Christmas break, Drew says he was at Grauman-Boss’ home in Palo Alto when Obama came over with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, his roommate from Pakistan. “Barack and Hasan showed up at the house in a BMW, and...

    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, drawing criticism for his remarks on the “professional left,” sent his deputy to fill in for him an hour before he was scheduled to brief reporters on Tuesday. The White House announced that the deputy press secretary, Bill Burton, would take reporters’ questions at 1:30 p.m., 30 minutes later than Gibbs was scheduled to brief. Gibbs had singled out liberal naysayers in an interview with The Hill’s Sam Youngman. “I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested,” Gibbs told him. “I mean, it’s crazy.” Hours after...

    Here is video of Fox News' Shepherd Smith grilling White House Spokesman Bill Burton on the shifting positions of the White House on whether a "Public Option" is a "must" or just "preferred" as part of his Health Care Plan. Burton tried to say no shifting has been going on, but Smith cited MSNBC and their far-left pundits being angry last night at the shifting language of administration officials on the issue. Burton at one point said, "you don't need to have me on your show" if you are going to talk over me. Shepherd Smith - drama queen that...

    Megan Kelly pierced the veil of yet another White House lie on this morning’s America’s Newsroom. Her guest was White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, who dismissed the idea that the White House was compiling an “enemies list” as silly. Burton explained the purpose of having asked people to send the White House the email addresses of anyone making “fishy” claims about Obama’s plan to ration health care and sentence the elderly to earlier deaths, to tax the healthy to pay for substance abusers and illegal immigrants, and to reduce the supply of doctors by imposing government restrictions on...

    Here is video of Fox News' Megyn Kelly tenaciously questioning White House Spokesman Bill Burton on whether or not the White House is purging email information being forwarded to them of opponents of Obama's Health Care Plan. Burton absolutely refused to say they were deleting that email information. Megyn Kelly would not let him off the hook, repeatedly asking that question while Burton repeatedly tried to change the subject and refused to answer her question. Finally he said in frustration that he was "flabbergasted" at her line of questioning. He also later said that opponents of ObamaCare are "people showing...

    Between Maureen Dowd's column of this morning and Norah O'Donnell's questioning of an Obama spokesman this afternoon, it looks like Barack's halo is losing its glow in some MSM sectors. Obama spokesman Bill Burton was O'Donnell's guest just after 3 PM EDT, and she read to him from Dowd's column, which he jokingly professed not to have read. NORAH O'DONNELL [reading Dowd]: "Ed Rendell compared Obama to the passive-aggressive Adlai Stevenson and told the Washington Post that Obama gives six-minute answers and "is not exactly the easiest guy in the world to identify with." Boos from the pro-Obama crowd in...

    Hillary Clinton has been playing a dangerous game with China. After over a decade of illegal contributions to the Democratic party and special favors by the Clintons, Hillary has turned on her old Chinese friends and sold them out in a desperate bid to win in 2008. The American dollar and economy have suffered collateral damage in this Clinton double cross with China. "Chinagate" was the name for numerous illegal campaign contributions from the PRC to the Democrats that helped them to win the 1996 elections. As you may remember back in 1996, the Clinton administration's apparently traded missile secrets...

The former First Lady is planning to fight Obama in South Carolina on January 26, and in the gargantuan nationwide primary on Tuesday, February 5 -- with contests in 19 states, including New York, California, New Jersey, Georgia, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Colorado.
