In today’s Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty points us to a Salon article with a fairly apparent double standard.
As if we needed more evidence that the pollsters are almost as far in the tank as the leftistmedia is.
But the timing isn’t political at all, right? If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you with a beautiful view of San Francisco bay.
The Narrative is all-important at MSNBC, and The Narrative says that there are no minorities in the GOP. Therefore, MSNBC decided not to run any of the speeches by minorities at the RNC last night.
If ever you needed more proof that NAACP these days really stands for National Association for Attacking Conservative People, here it is.
Or, a better title: “How dare Clinton criticize The One!”
The old cliche tells us that a stuck pig squeals, and by that measure something sure stuck the Obama defenders at the Associated Press.
Yesterday, the Washington Post published a story about Mitt Romney supposedly bullying a presumably gay student when he was in high school, way back in 1965 (nearly 50 years ago). Today, that story is falling apart and causing a lot of questions the WaPo might find uncomfortable.
All you need to do to get on Obama’s enemies list is to donate to Romney… then he’ll publish your name publicly and call you names:
Richard Nixon’s “enemies list” appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.
Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled “Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney’s donors.” In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having “less-than-reputable records,” the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that “quite a few” have also been “on the wrong side of the law” and profiting at “the expense of so many Americans.”
