"George W. Bush wasn't what we thought he'd be, huh?"
" at least he's making progress with the Illegal immigrant issue..."
"YEA, pretty soon the economy will be sooo BAD, they won't wanna come to America"
I’m wondering WHAT the criteria IS when so-called NEWS organizations hire spokespersons, pundits and anchors? Loud mouth? Wealthy, well-connected, “silver spoon” or "Momma’s boy”? Former elected official? Funny HOW the “average Joe” NEVER gets a voice in?
Allow me to use the example of Anderson Cooper… ahhhh NO wait, better yet, JOE SCARBOROUGH…
Maybe NO one noticed, but “Morning Joe” Scarborough takes particular PLEASURE in PROPAGATING the Clinton VS Obama feud. Joe with his petty, snide, elitist TWIN, Willie Geist demonstrate their BIAS, with every word that comes from their mouths. This is NEWS?
I’d like to have been at the meeting of MSNBC executives when they were deciding to hire Scarborough, going through his resume… JEEZ, I can ONLY imagine…
“focus groups show he has that clean cut Ivy league fraternity boy look that most Americans find appealing.”
“...and his term in Congress gives him credibility, experience, maybe even the public trust…?”
One of the 40 GOP freshmen legislators that came to POWER in 1994. I like to call this legislative branch the Sell-Out the American Middle-Class Congress. While Scarborough hung out with fellow freshman Mark Foley, with the boys masturbating to Monica Lewinski testimony… the REPUBLICANS were working late night and behind the scenes making deals with K-St to tip the scales of economic JUSTICE.
If our economy is failing it’s because of the low grade thought processes involved with the long range fiscal planning of the Republican Party.
Republicans believe Corporations have a right to do as they please. Most card carrying conservatives are so ignorant they don’t even know their own ideological CREDO. “Limited intervention in the economy. Substantial intervention in morality”. This means let the RICH do whatever they please while finger pointing and preaching to the average Joe and Jane Smuck.
Reagan/Bush killed ANTI-TRUST and any regulation that kept industry HONEST. When Reagan/Bush came to power, the USA was #1 on the planet in exporting goods and importing raw materials. This is the very definition of a prosperous economy. In 2007, it is the exact opposite. Why? Years of Republicans selling out the American middle class, that’s why.
Oh and let’s not forget Reagan union busting and DEREGULATION. The root of ALL future Corporate scandal. I hope Republican voters didn’t conveniently forget John McCain was right there forming the groundwork of this warped system in the Saving and loan scandal and Keating 5.
Then we go to the 90’s with Newt Gingrich Republican’s busy selling out the American middle class. I wanted to ask the Grich about all the hidden legislation such as the “Expatriate Clause” in Clinton’s “family leave” bill. It allowed the super rich (multinational Corporations, Saudi royals, drug trafficers, etc) take their billions out of the country PENALTY FREE!
Newt oversaw legislation/policy that paved the way for outsourcing of American jobs, off-shore accounts scandal, media consolidation, predatory lending and the “Corporate Crime Wave” (Enron, etc.) While Republicans were waving the American flag and professing love of our great nation, behind the scenes they were busy selling out our children’s future. Explain to me please Newt, what good can come from insuring the venture capital of Corporations that move American jobs to Communist China?”
“WHOA!, easy there fella, we already have someone to put Joe and Willie in their “place”… a woman Mika B……
CONCLUSION OF SCENE: Conscious guy gets fired and Scarborough hosts “Morning Joe”
NOTE: YEA… I needed to get that out or I would have been angry all day…
Anyway, my take on the Clinton VS. Obama fiasco is this:
You want to REALLY impress ME, Mr. or Mrs Democrat Presidential wannbe? A true patriotic HERO would concede the presidential bid for a Vice-Presidential spot. Who wants to be president after 8 years of that pathetic loser George W. Bush, anyway. It’s going to take a generation to clean up the mess this idiot left Americans with…
This Vice-Presidential superstar would be in line for a long string of strong willed, honest Democrat Presidents that choose to take on the challenge of keeping FREEDOM from becoming a delicate concept and bringing America BACK from the deep abyss of Bush/Cheney reckless economics. “YOYO economics”, y’know… You’re On Your Own…
