In Celebration of Clint Eastwood – My Picture With the President

September 3, 2012 at 9:32 pm (Cher, Clint Eastwood, Empty Chair Day, Labor Day, Michelle Malkin, President Empty Chair, President Obama, Republican National Convention)

Michelle Malkin has come out in support of Clint Eastwood’s performance at the Republican National Convention in a very unique way.  She writes:

What better way to commemorate the Labor Day holiday than to send a message to the AWOL campaign-in-chief — and support Clint Eastwood, to boot!

It’s called #EmptyChairDay, where conservatives are to contribute their very own pictures with the President just as Clint Eastwood presented him.

So without further ado, here is my contribution.

It was an honor and privilege to have my picture taken with the President of the United States today…

Wait, what?  Oh… Empty Chair Day.
Well this just seems foolish in retrospect.

Yahoo News Chief Caught Saying Romneys "Happy to Have a Party When Black People Drown" Update: Fired!

August 29, 2012 at 1:05 pm (ABC News, Ann Romney, Black People Drown, David Chalian, Mitt Romney, Racism, Republican National Convention, Tampa, Washington, Yahoo)

This is the prevailing attitude of your modern mainstream media.  Presented without much commentary, as it pretty much speaks for itself.

Via NewsBusters:

During live coverage of the Republican National Convention here in Tampa, Yahoo News Washington bureau chief David Chalian provided the perfect example of the pervasive anti-Republican bias Mitt Romney faces in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

In video broadcast Monday night by ABC and Yahoo over the Internet, Chalian can be heard claiming that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann are unconcerned about the fate of residents of the New Orleans area who are currently being hit by Hurricane Isaac.

“They aren’t concerned at all,” Chalian can be heard on the live broadcast. “They are happy to have a party when black people drown.”

That line elicits laughter from several employees listening in on the joke.

Well that didn’t take long.  Chalian has been fired effective immediately.
Politico reports:  

“David Chalian’s statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!.  He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.”

I’m certain there’s an opening for him at MSNBC.

Did MSNBC Intentionally Cut Every Speech Made By a Minority Speaker at the RNC?

August 29, 2012 at 7:09 am (Artur Davis, Blacks, Brian Sandoval, Chris Matthews, Hispanics, Luce Vela Fortuno, Mia Love, Minorities, MSNBC, Republican National Convention, Ted Cruz)

There’s no question that MSNBC omitted every single speech delivered by a minority speaker at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night.

Mia Love.  Artur Davis.  Ted Cruz.  Brian Sandoval.  Luce’ Vela Fortuño.

All noticeably glossed over.

None of these fine speakers were highlighted by the network recently famous for watching miserable hack Chris Matthews practically foam at the mouth in an effort to label the Republicans racist, and for Toure claiming that Romney is involved in the “niggerization” of President Obama.

When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.

MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black.

Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech.

And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too.

Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.

The only question is, did the network really intentionally cut away from minority speeches in an attempt to further paint the Republican party as a group of racist, white, old men?  It’s certainly plausible, is it not?

By the way, here is Utah congressional candidate Mia Love, absolutely lighting it up and living up to her conservative rock star image last night at the RNC.

New Ad Highlights Obama Voters Who Are Now Supporting Romney

August 28, 2012 at 7:36 am (2012 Election, Deficit, Hope and Change, Mitt Romney, President Obama, Republican National Convention, Switchers, Unemployment)

The Republican National Convention has released a new ad called “Switchers”, which highlights Americans who supported Obama in 2008, and why they won’t be doing so this November.  The ad will formally be introduced at today’s Daily Press Conference at the convention.

The ad has the feel of an intervention, part of a 12-step program for Obama’s Anonymous.

The people featured in the video hold up their Obama ’08 signs and explain why they no longer buy into hope and change.

One man in the video states, “Everything he promised he wasn’t going to do, he did and then some.”

Another declares, “We didn’t get hope and change.  We got deficit and unemployment.”

You’re forgiven.  Now let’s move on in 2012.
