Comic Relief: Concerned Citizen on Media – You’re ‘Suck Ups’ with Your ‘Embroidered Knee Pads’

September 14, 2012 at 7:20 am (Embroidered Knee Pads, Mainstream Media, Media, Media Bias, Middle East, Suck Ups, Virginia, Washington DC)

A local 9 News station in the Northern Virginia and DC areas asked the locals what they thought about media coverage of recent events in the Middle East.

One woman’s response may stand as the best ever:

“I think you’ve been suck ups…I think you’ve got your embroidered knee pads from the White House, buddy. That’s what I think.”

Suddenly the Media Cares About Religion and Presidential Candidates

September 10, 2012 at 9:00 am (2012 Election, Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright, Mainstream Media, Mitt Romney, Mormon, President Obama, Religion)

Expect the media to thoroughly investigate the Mormon religion and tie Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to its more controversial aspects in the coming months.

David Gregory of Face the Nation started off yesterday with some brief questions.

In a rare appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney took on a personal issue that has resisted talking about in the past: his religion.

Host David Gregory asked the GOP presidential hopeful what he thought a successful run this fall would mean to Mormons in America.

“I’m sure a number of members of my faith are proud of the fact that someone of my faith and our faith is able to run for president,” Romney said. “My own reaction is, I’ve got so many challenges ahead of me, I don’t think so much about the impact this has on the church day to day, but more about what kind of impact I want to have on the electorate and what it takes to become elected president.”

Romney emphasized the importance of the ethical foundations his religion had taught him.

In 2008, the media failed to ask a similar question of Barack Obama.  A question along the lines of, “What do you think a successful run this fall would mean to your pastor Jeremiah Wright”?

As a public service reminder (because that’s what we do), here is a little smattering of the President’s religion and pastor which was all but ignored as he ran for office.

If the mainstream media wants to analyze religion, it should be done so for each of the candidates.  Wright was Obama’s spiritual mentor for over twenty years, so please, let’s discuss start talking about this.

Video: Guess Who’s Calling Obama a Liar Now … Obama

September 9, 2012 at 9:30 am (2008 Campaign, 2012 Election, Debt, Deficit, Economy, Jobs, Liar, Lies, Mainstream Media, Obama Administration, President Obama, Promises, Worst President)

Honestly, after watching this short video (starring Obama himself), it’ll be hard to remember anything the President said during the 2008 campaign that he actually told the truth about.  Or any promise that he actually kept.

A hat tip to the Independent Journal Review for pointing out the video, and a great job by YouTube user SnorkelDogg for producing it.

Case Closed: If Moderate Voters See This Video, It’s Over for Obama

This is a stunning thirteen minute video that shows Obama in his own words, with commentary from mostly mainstream media sources. If this video goes viral and reaches moderate and independent voters, it would be a big blow to the Obama re-election bid.

Like I said in the title, if an undecided voter sees this, it’s over for Obama.

Watch the video below, and then share this post with everyone you know…
