Watch McCain try not to be an obsessive asshat! Ohhhh, and FAIL. Via.
Major Garret used to be a White House correspondent for Fox, and on “Face The Nation” Bob Schieffer announced that Garret is now replacing Norah O’Donnell as the Chief White House Correspondent for CBS News.
Norah O’Donnell has done some good work, most recently in her interview with Grover “Poopy Head” Norquist:
“The president was committed, uh, elected on the basis that he was not Romney and Romney was a poopy head and you should vote against Romney and he won by two points. But he didn’t make the case that we should have higher taxes and higher spending, he kind of sounded like the opposite.”
“Well, I’m not sure that’s what the president called Mitt Romney, Grover. That’s not the debate that was had … He said very clearly throughout the debate that the wealthiest Americans should pay more, and he won eight of the nine battleground states, um, and Republicans failed to reclaim the White House or the Senate.”
And who could forget Norah O’Donnell Pummels Boehner on “Repeal and Replace”?
Unfortunately for “fair and balanced” news coverage, Foxers, former and current, are infiltrating as many outlets as they can: Former News Corp. exec expected to head Tribune Co., Rupert Murdoch eyes LA Times, Chicago Tribune.
I was totally speechless when I first heard this. There’s alot of hate in there. Via Think Progress.
Remember this interview on Face the Nation? Remember how Willard Romney evaded questions the way Bugs Bunny dodges Elmer Fudd?
Nothing has changed since then. In fact, per Think Progress, he still “refused to take a stance on President Obama’s immigration directive during a speech before the National Association of Latino Elected Officials conference Thursday afternoon, roughly 7 days or 142 hours after” the president’s announcement. He still won’t say what he’d do with all those kids who qualify for the president’s plan.
Where does he stand on this issue? Who the heck knows.
Just answer the question already:
ROMNEY: Some people have asked if I will let stand the President’s executive action. The answer is that I will put in place my own long-term solution that will replace and supersede the President’s temporary measure.
As President, I won’t settle for a stop-gap measure. I will work with Republicans and Democrats to find a long-term solution. I will prioritize measures that strengthen legal immigration and make it easier. And I will address the problem of illegal immigration in a civil but resolute manner. We may not always agree, but when I make a promise to you, I will keep it.
First try taking a stand on what you are asked before you state what you “will” or “won’t” promise in the future. What about right now? What promise?
What leadership! What spine! … What a disaster.
Willard Romney’s presidential response to all things presidential: “We’ll see.”
Remember this video from yesterday? Willard Romney refused to say whether or not he would repeal President Obama’s new immigration policy.
He also said this:
Bob Schieffer: So he [President Obama] did it for politics.
Romney: Well, that’s certainly a big part of the equation.
Poor Mitt. His memory is shorter than his… WaWa switcheroo.
But when it comes to immigration, perhaps no presidential candidate has politicized the issue more than Romney has over the past five years — during his 2007-2008 bid and during his current one.
Indeed, the issue was a clear way for the former Massachusetts governor to prove his conservative credentials. And it was a weapon he used — often with success — against John McCain, Rick Perry, and Newt Gingrich, all of whom had supported some liberal policies toward illegal immigrants. [...]
And during this cycle’s GOP presidential primary, Romney hammered Perry on the fact that young illegal immigrants in Texas qualify for in-state college tuition rates. [...] And after Gingrich began to see his poll numbers climb in the fall of 2011, Romney knocked Gingrich’s call to give illegal immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for years a chance to gain residency status.
Talk about switcheroos.
