Romnesia? NBC Remembers
GOP Campaign Mistakes But
Forgets Obama-Biden Blunders

Newsbusters, by Matt Hadro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/29/2012 3:16:35 PM

Strangely missing from NBC´s look back on the 2012 campaign were gaffes and controversial statements from the Obama-Biden campaign. Friday´s Today featured a mini-blooper reel of GOP mishaps on the campaign trail, but made no mention of Democratic controversies. In its lengthy string of highlights from the 2012 campaign, Today included Mitt Romney´s infamous "47 percent" remarks along with Rep. Todd Akin´s "legitimate rape" meltdown. Today said nothing, though, of Biden´s controversial "chains" comments or Obama´s "you didn´t build that" remark.

Those were not gaffes by the dem ticket. They appealed directly to the ignorant, lazy takers in our country.

You have to remember that, to the libs/progressives/socialists they are the ´mainstream,´ in their eyes. Only the extremists (republicans) commit gaffs. Balancing the budget, living within your means, personal freedom and responsibility, are extremist ideas.

Matt, they aren´t "strangely missing." They were deliberatly omitted by the Ministry of Truth, aka NBC News, aka Obama Propaganda Machine.

Romney ran a outstanding campaign compared to Obama and it was obvious. Shame the MSM feels not guilt in their conspiracy to prop up the Marxist. Eventually Obama will turn on them.

Time to amend the adage:

Those who can: Do.

Those who can’t: Teach.

Those who can’t teach: Become journalists.

Think back when you were in undergrad to those who were confessed ‘journalism majors’ and ask yourself: how many of those folks would you want doing neurosurgery on your pet worm?

The Seattle Seahawks are not going to rest on their Super Bowl laurels as victorious quarterback Russell Wilson has announced plans to head to a baseball team´s spring training session. The professional football player has a history of switching between sports, as he played in one of the minor league baseball teams before being drafted into the NFL. He played as a part of the Class A teams for the Colorado Rockies baseball teams in 2010 and 2011 before switching his sights to football in 2012. Back in December, a year after signing his four-year $2.99million contract with the Seahawks,

A car fanatic gave his pet dog away after he was left distraught when she chewed a hole through the wheel arch of his prized £80,000 Aston Martin. Builder Royston Grimstead, 42, was devastated when he came home to find his border collie spaniel cross Luce had chewed through the fibreglass panel of his luxury car - causing £3,000 of damage. Mr Grimstead, from Chedzoy, Somerset, said he had already been considering re-homing the dog, which he said did not get along with his other dog, but the damage to the car was the final straw.

(Video) President Obama announced Tuesday more than $750 million in charitable commitments from technology and telecom companies for a new effort to bring high-speed Internet to the classroom. Speaking at a middle school in suburban Maryland on Tuesday, the president touted ConnectED — a program announced last year that aims to get nearly every classroom in America outfitted with high-speed Internet access. "In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools," Obama said. The president touted a $2 billion "down payment" from the Federal Communications Commission that will connect some

Morning Joe on 2016: Hillary´s
Problem ´Inevitability´, But Christie ´Over´

Two possible presidential candidates. Although there´s no evidence of it on the record, some have accused the first of closing bridge-access lanes for political purposes. The other failed to respond to pleas for help, four Americans died in Benghazi, and her response was a petulant "what difference does it make?" So where do those two candidates stand as we look to 2016? In the case of Chris Christie, his candidacy is "over" and he "doesn´t belong in the conversation." Hillary Clinton? Her biggest problem is fighting an air of "inevitability." Such was the collective wisdom of today´s Morning Joe panel.

George Will zinged the media’s duplicity in how they have approached the IRS scandal versus past major scandals when a Republican was President, a lack of interest President Obama recognizes and, “hence, his sense of weariness and boredom as he discussed this with Bill O’Reilly.” Will, on Bret Baier’s FNC panel Monday night, recalled “three big” scandals “regarding the distortion and abuse of institutions: Watergate, Iran-Contra and the IRS,” noting “the first two were ravenously covered by the media; they were Republican Presidents’ problems.” (Video) Will, on the February 3 Special Report with Bret Baier, during a discussion of Bill

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday criticized President Obama for not approving the Keystone XL pipeline, calling it a simple decision. Boehner went off on a rant during a press conference after being asked if the oil-sands pipeline was too "complex an issue to attach" to legislation raising the debt ceiling. "Complex? The Keystone pipeline is complex?" Boehner said. "It´s been under study for five years! "We build pipelines everywhere in American everyday. Do you realize there are 200,000 miles of pipelines in the United States? "The only reason that the president´s involved in the Keystone pipeline is because it

A panel on Fox News Channel’s Special Report expressed their thoughts on President Barack Obama deflecting questions about the Benghazi attack and the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservatives by implying that Fox is stoking its audience’s ire over non-issues. In conjunction with a tweet via former Sec. Hillary Clinton going after Fox, the panel of guests wondered why the administration has an aversion to “the truth” and apparently suffers from “Fox derangement syndrome.” “I don’t understand why the administration just can’t tell the truth about this,” said The Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers.

IRS employees to receive bonuses

Because they´re doing such a great job, right? The Hill: The IRS has given the green light to tens of millions of dollars in employee bonuses, a decision that congressional Republicans immediately rebuked. IRS employees will receive around $43 million in bonuses this spring under an agreement reached with the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents some agency employees. Union officials said that total was well short of the $75 million that the employees were owed under their labor agreement. But in the wake of last year´s targeting controversy, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) quickly and sharply criticized the decision to give

SEMINOLE -Three candidates for Congress sculpted more detailed images of themselves on Monday as differences emerged over new topics such as medical marijuana, light rail and a military response in Syria. A debate organized by the Tampa Bay Times, Bay News 9, St. Petersburg College and the AARP also sharpened the outlines the candidates already have projected on Obamacare, flood insurance and Social Security. Republican David Jolly spoke of personal liberty and opposing big government; Democrat Alex Sink called herself a bipartisan problem-solver; and Libertarian Lucas Overby portrayed himself a pragmatist who believes in government reform.

WASHINGTON – U.S. manufacturers saw orders for their products decline in December by the largest amount in five months although the setback for a key category that tracks business investment was not as large as first reported. Orders to U.S. factories fell 1.5 percent in December, the biggest drop since July, with much of the weakness coming from a plunge in aircraft orders, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. Orders had risen 1.5 percent in November after a 0.5 percent October decrease. Orders in a closely watched category that serves as a proxy for business investment declined 0.6 percent, a smaller

The game was called “Cross the Line,” an ironic title because that’s exactly what parents of students at a middle school in Marinette, Wisconsin think the educators did. WLUK Fox 11 News is reporting that Marinette Middle School played the game in which 5th through 8th graders were grouped together and asked to step forward if they had a “yes” answer to questions like, “Do your parents drink?” and “Has anyone in your family been to jail?” (Video) It’s unclear who exactly was leading the game.

At a GOP lunch last week, Sen. John McCain noted that “some crazy guy from Texas” stormed out during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. “Hey,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz chimed in, “I didn’t walk out of the State of the Union.” The packed room erupted in laughter. The exchange — referring to GOP Rep. Steve Stockman’s heavily publicized early exit — reflects thawing tensions between Cruz and his fellow GOP senators. After battling with Senate Republicans for much of 2013, prompting tense confrontations and occasional shouting matches, Cruz is starting to achieve what once seemed unthinkable: He’s getting

President Barack Obama sat down with Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly for a pre-Super Bowl interview, a reprise of the Q&A the two did before the 2011 game, and Obama’s sixth straight pre-Super Bowl interview. O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?” Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved.

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Peyton Manning is 37 years old. He has had four neck surgeries. He has admitted he doesn´t have the arm he used to. But despite all that, it took him until Sunday night to look truly helpless. Like he was staring at something even he, the most prepared quarterback in NFL history, couldn´t navigate. It seemed like the quarterback who had always thought of everything had nothing left. The Seattle Seahawks wrecked Manning and his historically spectacular offense to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8, in one of the biggest blowouts in the history of the league´s biggest game.

According to Nielsen TV data through mid-January, the average age of Fox News viewers is 68-years-old. In Frank Rich´s New York Magazine article, ´Stop Beating a Dead Fox´ he calls Fox News a politically conservative ´retirement community´ that´s losing young viewers at a faster rate than it´s competitors. The average viewers at MSNBC and CNN are 60, and the average is 62-64 for the broadcast networks. Not only are Fox News viewers old, they´re almost all white.

One of the biggest blowouts in Super Bowl history was capped by one of the biggest blunders in regional transit history.Overwhelmed by a record number of riders, NJ Transit kept fans waiting after the game for hours for shuttle trains from MetLife Stadium.
