“Nothing terrifies a sitting president more than rising gasoline prices, which in President Obama’s case could imperil the economic recovery and torpedo his re-election prospects,” said Robert McNally, head of the Rapidan Group energy consultancy and a former White House official.
Last week after watching another Republican debate hosted by CNN I decided I have seen enough debates for a lifetime. If this was CNN’s idea of covering what news that is important to the American public then the moderator, John King layed a rotten egg and that is two in a row for this leftist turkey.
Moderators of Presidential debates should ask questions that are relevant to current events that have an impact on the voters lives, but of course if you are in the ‘tank’ for Obama, like John the Turkey, you avoid anything that might hurt his reelection chances. If you can believe it, the top news story of the day… “The Price of Gas”… not one question was asked about it, in this debate. This cannot be written off as an oversight, CNN was providing polticial cover as they well know that the price of gas could sink a Presidency.
Remember when the price of gas went up and Bush was accused of helping his oil buddies get richer? Last year, Newsbusters found that networks linked Bush to rising gas prices fifteen times as often as Obama. I guess, 15 to 1 is the networks idea of “Fair and Balanced.”
Out of the mouths of Unfair and Unbalanced
Of course, once you open Pandora’s Box and discuss gas prices then the natural followup is a discussion about the country’s economy and certainly the Lame Stream Media wouldn’t want to go there when there are such crucial issues to discuss like prolife postions and Christian values. I sure no one cares about massive deficts, unemployment and skyrocketing gas prices.
Fair and Balanced No.2: “a balanced portrayal of the McCain/Palin campaign.” So says HBO
I personally like Sarah Palin and I think she has a lot to offer this country and under a Republican President I would like to see her head up energy development as she has an excellent track record in this area as Governor in Alaska.
A new HBO movie is coming out called “Game Changer” named after the book with the same title. It was produced by Tom Hanks, a notorious Obama bundler. Although I haven’t seen the movie, from what has been leaked out, there is no doubt that this is another hatchet job against Palin just in case she has any aspirations for running for office.
From what I have read and heard, the movie makes suggests inunedio about Sarah Palins mental satbility, marriage fidleity and just for the kids, offers up a semi nude scene. The movie portrays her as a crazy paranoid Republican.
If there is one person that drives the Liberals crazy, Sarah Palin wins hands down. When I use term Liberals and Crazy in the same sentence, I tend to repeat myself.
And I must ask the question: Whose Paranoid?
Sarah Palin aides call HBO’s ‘Game Change’ movie ‘sick’ and inaccurate
Meg Stapleton, a former spokeswoman, said that she, unlike some of the others who worked with Palin during the campaign, had not been contacted by anyone associated with either the book or movie.
“They don’t want to hear anything good,” she said, her voice full of passion. “We all know Palin sells and the dramatization of Palin sells even more. This is sick.”
“They mock Gov. Palin, you mock Gov. Palin, as weak and unable to cope and press forward,” she told reporters on the conference call. “And the movie and the trailer … say that. And yet look with your own eyes at what she and her family have endured and inspired over the last few years. Any lesser man would have hanged himself by now. So who’s weak?”
