Top Romney Strategist
Stuart Stevens says media
´not in the tank´ for
President Obama

Mediaite, by Jon Nicosia

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 2/24/2013 7:15:53 PM

Ever since then-Senator Barack Obama first took a lead in the 2008 Democratic primary, the political news media has faced the accusation that they are “in the tank” for the now-second term President Obama. On Sunday morning’s Reliable Sources, the press got a qualified defense from a surprising source: Mitt Romney chief strategist Stuart Stevens. Host Howard Kurtz asked Stevens if ” much of the media is in the tank for Barack Obama,” to which Stevens replied, “In the tank? I would say no.”

How could we have won if Romney´s top guy didn´t know what he was up against? SMH

Ya, that´s a stupid remark but like most of the Romney effort it´s faults were attributable, in large part, to Mitt and his people being nice people who play fair and don´t make claims they can´t prove or charges that are not helpful.

It´s a maturity thing and a class thing.

Barky´s peeps never heard of such a thing.

The phrase ´in the tank´ doesn´t actually describe the MSM towards Obama...

´Stole the damn car for him´ would be more appropriate.

The behavior of ´news media´ since the ´affirmative action black president´ took charge has been nothing short of reprehensible.

They have absolutely abandoned any ´objectivity in the public interest´ for this buffoon.

Beside rapant voter fraud, Mr. Stevens explains in large part why Romney lost. If Romney surrounded himself with people like that maybe it is just a well that he lost. He would not have been much of an improvement on Dear Leader.

This kind of media naïveté or really, just being too dang scared to tell the TRUTH is what lost the election. I know, besides voter fraud, I know. Yes, Mitt plays fair and Dems and MSM do not. Well, RR was up against the same and he outmaneuvered them and boxed their ears. This is why Mitt should stay in business and out of politics. Fiercely honest, boldly patriotic and smart as a whip with the media is what kind of leader America must have now.

I don´t get how some alleged conservatives seem to think the way to deal with people like this in the Republican Party is to withdraw and retreat. Romney´s nomination wasn´t as easy as McCain´s, because in 2012 almost all conservative candidates dropped out faster than in 2008 when it was obvious they had no chance of winning and were just handing the RINO candidate a string of plurality victories by dispersing conservative votes. Almost all... it´s Newt Gingrich you can thank for the GOP nomination going to Romney rather than Santorum.

Maybe Katie Couric should ask Stevens exactly what he reads. Or watches. Or both.

This is beyond pathetic, a case of, "We think we have met the enemy, but we´re not sure because we wouldn´t recognize it if we tripped over it."

But this is merely a reflection of elite attitude and stupidity. Given the amount of voter fraud, even hiring someone competent in that position wouldn´t have affected the outcome.

Maybe Stuart Stevens should re-watch the 2nd debate when the ever-impartial Candy Crowley was a human shield for our poseur.

Come on, it is bad enough we have to fight these lying socialists every single darned day of our lives, now even people supposedly on our side don´t even know who they are up against. This guy will probably still be a consultant on the next GOP campaign too, because it is the same people doing the same darned things that lose us elections.

I can´t recall all the names now, but Schmit and Nicole Wallace come to mind now.. and LURKING somewhere I hear KARL ROVE...

Pure self-promotion from this guy. He will throw the entire campaign staff under the bus in his attempt to secure some of that Steve Schmidt blood money.

If this guy truly thinks the media is not in the tank for Obama then he has no business being involved in politics at all. He is a pure incompetent. There were a few of those on the Romney campaign, and no doubt this is just the beginning of them coming out of the woodwork.

The media has always been in the tank for a dem candidate and we´ve won in spite of that. Romney´s problem was he didn´t give people a compelling reason to vote for him and his religion had a lot to do with stay at home voters,especially hardcore evangelicals.

Romney was also a poor choice to run against Obamacare when his own plan was he basis for it.Employer based healthcare with gov´t subsidies isn´t a bad idea and it´s an incentive to work. As soon as they included the "can´t afford it" crowd it was doomed.Freeloaders will dig a 3000 mile tunnel to get to a government giveaway like that.They should have just put the lofos on medicaid,instead of disrupting the mainstream insurance companies.

The main reason Obamacare won´t work is there´s too many carve outs for dem supporters.The risk pool isn´t being spread around enough.

I truly don´t know whether to laugh or cry. This is just astonishing! Meanwhile, 0bama and the regime are blanketing this country with their new campaign PAC to further destroy us. It´s extremely disheartening that we have people are our side who are really this naive and stupid. Stevens was a former travel writer?? and worked for Dole and McCain. Where do we find these morons??We were dead in the water before it even began. If we continue to have incompetent idiots like this running campaigns against the Democrat behemoth machine we are doomed forever. It´s just breathtaking and very depressing.

11, Romney wanted to win badly enough so that he spent 15 million dollars of his own moneyh when he tried to get the nomination the first time. He was vilified by our side for "trying to buy the presidency" as though it was more noble to spend money raised than to spend one´s own money. I never figured that one out.

31, Romney was not enthusiastic about trying again but after being talked into it he was, of course, anxious to win. Why else would he demean himself and inconvenience himself with all those stupid debates with other Republicans, some of whom were spoilers because they couldn´t accept that there was no path to securing the nomination open to them but their egos just would not permit them to give up. He finally had to get tough with Gingrich, which many did not like to see, but Gingrich was not on the ballot at all in VA and not on the ballots of some counties in other states. Couldn´t he count? Couoldn´t his followers count? When you can´t win get out of the way.

@ #57...if everybody was "done with the GOP until the rinos are gone, " well the tell me who would be left to vote them out? i don´t like what happened any more than anyone else, but we have 2 parties unless you count independents. maybe the "tea party" should become a ligitimate party doncha think? THEN maybe something could get done. in case no one knows it the tea part by and large are constitutionalists.

It´s pretty clear why Romney lost. The height of rich weak Republican establishment naivety was running against tough street smart liberal Democrat Chicago politicians. It was no contest from the get-go, as the Obama crew had Romney pictured in the minds of their prospective voters as "a rich someone who did not care about them" before Romney ever got off his beach chair behind his mansion at the lake in New Hampshire.

Romney´s CHIEF strategist.
And the rinos are still trying to bring Mitt back to life.
*heavy sigh*

Gingrich-bashers wake up. Newt was the only one of the candidates who took the fight to the media and Obama...the real enemies.

Can we learn from this?
The Tea Party is not the problem. Conservative principles are not the problem.
Even the dem machine is not the problem.
The problem is Stuart Stevens and everyone who thinks like him.
That includes the Epic Rino Romney.

#28 I think the rest of the comments on this thread provide a forceful answer to your question. The Republican party is dead for obvious reasons but some of them won´t lie down - yet. The time has come for new leaders, new ideas and some honesty in support of the Constitution and yes, I like Dr. Ben and am a diehard Palin supporter.

It´s worth noting that Reagan´s election team was heavy on his California loyalists and short on Beltway establishment types. This is the way it has to be done by Republicans if they want to win.

Romney took the lead for awhile in October by getting aggressive in the first debate and going after both Obama and the media. When he went back to playing nice and playing defense, Obama regained the momentum and never looked back. It sounds like this Stuart Stevens fellow (never heard of him before this) was one of the "play nice" types.

Politics ain´t beanbag.

Mitt was stupid to rely as much as he did on the advice of the DC based Republican consultancy. Perhaps he assumed they were of the same professional caliber as Boston Consultants. They aren´t. Indeed, they have been handing out bad political advice for most of my lifetime. As another poster noted, Reagan began to win in 1980 after he fired the DC based advisers. Someone over at Redstate looked at how incestuous Mitt´s crew was, how much cash they raked in and how most of their 2012 efforts went to settling old political scores instead of trying to actually win the election.

Stevens is off his rocker. This anchor weight together with a lot of Conservatves lack of help in electing Romney.Gingrich was paricularily offensive towards Mitt Romney. Even Rush Limbaugh was luke warm.As a MA Conservative I consider the Governor was the man for the job,an eloquent speaker and he knew his facts, especially the economy. In the debates Governor Romney brought this cowering idiot down to size.We are left with an empty space in the White House. I will never forget Obamas cowardice and his lieing in not giving a direct command down the line to help the 4 men fighting for their lives at the Benghazi Consulate. How an earth can this enept, incompetant occupant of the White House be still issuing orders. Does not make sense.

Somewhere out there is the perfect Conservative candidate who could whip Obama´s ass....but this person has obviously not been discovered by us yet...sigh.....

And to think I wasted my valuable vote on McPain and then Romney. The right candidate would have smothered Barry Soetoro. Combine that candidate incompetence with the DemocRAT machine voting fraud and its no wonder that even King Hussein was so surprised that he won re-election. I cant help feeling so screwed. How about you?

If we dont learn to start FIGHTING them, fighting back, and fighting hard, we will continue to be screwed, and I dont appreciate feeling screwed, do you?

Mister or Mrs. Stuart whoever the hell you are Stevens, YOU ARE THE WEAKEST LINK! Get outta here! Dumbass!

The Republican establishment are not naive, stupid, or too nice. They are complicit in the socialist transformation of America.

It is said that our only hope is to work inside the party to bring up more constitutional conservatives like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. However, we don´t have the time to do that.

I´m sick and tired of fighting the socialists, both outside and inside the GOP. I am afraid of my government. If they don´t want to abide by the Constitution, then I don´t have to follow their edicts.

What difference, at this point, does it make? Who is John Galt? I am John Galt.

Obama and the media smell blood in the water and they are out to destroy the Republican Party. Romney was easy pickings and the judgement of his ´strategist´ proves it. They need to stop murmuring about Obama´s good intentions (he doesn´t have any) and acknowledge the fact that Obama´s policies are destroying us while he smilingly and successfully blames them all on Congressional Republicans. Why we can see this and they can´t or won´t is the mystery of our generation.

Mitt should have had nothing to lose playing nice. In a normal America, Obama would have lost to Bozo the clown. But it´s not the America I grew up in anymore. Republicans who didn´t get their way stayed home in droves on Mitt. If I didn´t know any better I´d say Gingrich and Santorum were democrat operatives in the primaries. 59 voter precincts in Philly and not one vote for mitt? A mathematical and statistical impossibility. Yeah...he stood a chance. His handlers stunk but you can´t blame it all on them.

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night. They almost always did.” About three weeks ago, at 2:45 a.m., the tribal police were called to the reservation home of an Indian woman who was allegedly

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
