Obama Colludes With Pravda (MSNBC)

    The president has rewarded his campaign loyalists from MSNBC with an off-schedule West Wing meeting, where he's given them new talking points to win the next battle over taxes.

    Yes, this state-press collusion is happening in your capital, not just Caracas or Havana.

    The lovefest between Obama and MSNBC toadies Lawrence O'Donnell, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton actually took place on Dec. 4.

    A White House spokesperson confirmed the president met with them and other "influential progressives" to discuss the "importance of extending the Bush middle-class tax cut" — not to mention mau-mauing Republicans against "tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires."

    What makes them qualified to cover the high-stakes "fiscal cliff" negotiations? O'Donnell's claim to fame is writing fictional tales of the "West Wing" for TV. Maddow is a lesbian activist. Schultz is a sports broadcaster by trade.

    And Sharpton is a Baptist minister with his own tax problems (he recently owed the IRS almost $1 million).

    But what they lack in journalistic credentials they make up for in far-left ideology — which makes them eminently valuable to this president, who governs through economic envy and agitation.

    O'Donnell is such a hard-core Marxist, he doesn't like to even be perfumed as a "progressive." "I am not a liberal who is so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to 'progressive.' Liberals amuse me. I am a socialist," O'Donnell flatly stated in 2010, adding that capitalism is "truly lethal cruelty." He further stressed: "I live to the extreme left of liberals."

    The same can be said for his fellow travelers at MSNBC.

    Yet no sooner had they left the White House with their latest Obama marching orders than they blasted Fox News for being a "mouthpiece" for the GOP.

    On Dec. 5, the day after she slyly met with Obama to sharpen her agitprop, Maddow aired an April 2011 recording by a Fox contributor claiming to deliver a message from Fox news chief Roger Ailes to Gen. David Petraeus urging him to run against Obama.

    Though Ailes says it clearly was a joke, Maddow asserted the audio made clear that Fox "seriously is not like anything else in news."

    "They are officially just a media arm of the Republican Party," she added. "They are a political operation serving the needs of the Republican Party."

    Yes, it's just despicable Fox is so biased.

    Funny, though, we don't recall Fox's prime-time lineup of anchors slipping into the West Wing for a special pow-wow with President Bush. Maybe if they had, he could have made his across-the-board tax cuts permanent. Maybe if they had coordinated propaganda the way this president and MSNBC have, there would be no expiration date on tax relief for hardworking Americans.

    But they didn't do that because that's not the way a free society works.

    In contrast, this president is personally coordinating state propaganda with a prominent TV network. The now-naked collusion between the Obama White House and MSNBC sets a dangerous precedent for an otherwise free press and republic.

  2. But why does it matter, nobody watches msnbc anyway, right?

    Max E.

    Good point, only radical far left loons with shit for brains actually take them seriously, especially Madcow.
  4. It appears that more people take her seriously than you think. It was Maddow who launched the War on Women attack campaign, and she beat that drum with a vengeance.

    Indeed, she did help to expose the hypocrisy of the dems....

    You just said nobody watches them. Make up your mind.

    They really should change their call letters to I-D-I-O-T-S.
  8. I was being sarcastic. It is you who always starts those, nobody watches msnbc threads.

    Therefore, I don't know why you are mad that Obama is giving talking points to people nobody watches.
  9. Bill has weakness for women, as most men do. Most men would have a harem if that could afford or get away with it, and most women understand that.

    I knew the election was over right after that speech, especially after Leapup started his "we are fukked" thread. Then the next couple of days, my friends here in the heartland were buzzing. I knew it was over, Obama will carry the Midwest, and he did.

    If I were to roll my eyes any further they'd likely get stuck.
