The Mosque – Obama And Anti-Liberal News Media Biases

As a  Social Democrat I would prefer to deal with the Mosque near Ground Zero after the election because I am admittedly a pragmatist and don’t want the Republicans to win. But after listening to The Ed Schultz and Keith Olbermann Shows I have come to the conclusion that there is a case for ANTI-LIBERAL NEWS MEDIA BIASES concerning Obama and the Mosque issue!

First has anyone heard Senator Harry Reid’s full comments on Obama’s flip flop on the Mosque? Senator Reid spoke about the lack of Republican support for those injured at Ground Zero? Since the Republicans seem so intense about the sacredness of “Ground Zero” you would expect them to fork up some cash to those brave first responders! Did the news media make as much of an issue concerning the Republicans not supporting a Democrat bill to provide relief to those first responders who are suffering from the after effects of the WTC pollution? The answer is no! The news media only made an issue of the Mosque, and from most news media reports, the Mosque was going to be on Ground Zero! However the truth is the exact opposite! (See the video below by Keith Olbermann). Why is the news media saying the Mosque is going to be on Ground Zero and why don’t they challenge the Republicans when they say such lies? Why is the news media spinning the truth with a right wing slant? This is not just Fox News where you would expect such nonsense but all the news channels!

Alvin Greene To Debate Sarah Palin

Yes it is scary that Alvin Greene has won the South Carolina Democratic Primary. I would love to see a debate between Alvin Greene and Sarah Palin. Amazing that Sarah Palin was running for Vice President, an office just a heartbeat away from succession to the Presidency! Yet the right winger’s whined that Sarah Palin was being asked trick questions such as:

  • What news papers do you read?
  • What is the Bush Doctrine?
  • What is your foreign policy experience?
  • Well Alvin Greene is not a parochial hillbilly with just limited knowledge of South Carolina!

    Alvin Greene can see Georgia from his house!

    Democrats Have To Be More Aggressive

    Wow Obama actually spoke up! Big deal he wasted an entire year being “Super Wimp”! Republicans know how to go on the offensive and it is about time that Democrats learn to do the same! As I mentioned in my prior post, some conservatives are talking about gaining control of the House so they can use the House of Representatives’ Constitutional power of the “purse strings” to de-fund Health Care Reform! Nancy Pelosi did not want to de-fund the Iraqi War using the same technique. If she did then the war would have ended two years before Obama became President.

    Once again we hear the “mantra” of Democrats, “MEOW…. MEOW…..MEOW”. When will liberals go on the offensive? Well I just heard Ed Schultz tackle a favorite issue of mine. That issue is “Conservative News Media Biases”. Yes you read that correctly! For too long liberals have allowed conservatives and Republicans to paint the news media as a liberally biased! (See the video below).

    Republican Leader John Boehner Spins On “Meet The Press”

    Today I watched Republican House minority leader John Boehner do a full court press spin on “Meet The Press’. He blamed the Democrats for not being able to lead the nation by pointing out the problems that Obama had with blue dog Democrats. What the host failed to press Rep. John Boehner on was that the Democrats had more than enough votes IF the Republicans allowed governmental processes to take place by not resorting to the filibuster in the Senate. “Meet The Press” host, David Gregory did not press Republican Minority Leader John Boehner that his Republican counterparts in the Senate were engaging in the filibuster at record levels! Hence the Democrats had to have all 60 votes not just 50 votes plus Vice President Biden to act as the breaking vote to pass. While Rep. Boehner is a member of the House not the Senate, none the less the record Senate filibusters are the only reason the Democrats have come to a halt.

    Bill O’Reilly And FoxNews SPIN Steve Schmidt Statements

    While we already are aware about Sarah Palin’s lack of basic geography, I would like to add how Fox News distorted Steve Schmidt’s interview on “60 Minutes“!  Bill O’Reilly created a FULL SPIN ZONE in his “Talking Points Memo” on Monday when he said that McCain Adviser Steve Schmidt stated that Sarah Palin made the the Republican ticket stronger.

    Fox News Media Bias: Moveon.Org Fights Back

    Now finally the Democrats are standing up to the right wing propaganda machine! I have always believed, even from the time of the Vietnam War, that if there is news media biases it was pro-conservative! If you were around then you would see the news media first present a “flag burning” then a Republican hawk would wrap himself in the flag and attack the flag burners. The subliminal message being “If you are against the war and OUR PRESIDENT then you are against America”! You rarely saw a non-flag burning anti-war demonstrator yet they were the majority.  Well in this era Fox News seems to believe they own America. Thank God they were not around during the Vietnam War. I am sick of their self righteous, birther, tea bag waving ways.

    Thank God President Obama mustered some testosterone to go on the offensive.

    Just Say “NO” To Snowe And The Party Of No

    The Democrats In Congress And Obama do not need Swine Flu shots. They need TESTOSTERONE shots! Sure they can learn from the Republicans on how to be the minority party of no! To bad the Democrats did not function as the “party of NO” while the Iraq War was waging and we had control of the House of Representatives for the last two years of Bush’s presidency! We could have ended the funding for the Iraq War and shifted our attention to Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Now the American people are war weary and who can blame them. It used to be we won World Wars in four years. Instead we just win Halliburton and Blackwater as parasites of our tax dollars! For God sake we have control of both Houses of Congress and the Presidency. We may not have control of both houses of Congress after the 2010 election. I don’t know who is weaker Harry Reid or President Obama! We need to go on the offensive.

    As one protester’s sign read:

    The Democratic Congressional Majority: Use it or loose it!
