I don't like Obama is that, to me, HE IS republican lite - I mean, he's spent much more time dissing Democrats than republicans. And he's just going to abandon Democratic principles and policies if he gets in the WH - in favor of cozying up to the republicans who have destroyed this nation, all in the name of "bipartisan unity," which of course will NEVER exist.
Obama's fanatical supporters are another whole creepy story...
When Hillary Clinton was TRYING to get HEALTH CARE for the people of this nation?
Either you were in diapers (or not born, which is my suspicion)
Or, you were CHEERING HER ON, like DEMOCRATS were - because she was trying to get something good and decent done in the face of a hostile, corporate-controlled media and the rightwing noise machine
Or, you were a REPUBLICAN.
Not buying, even for a second, your "I'm for transparent government" BS - nope - you're "for" Obama - and you will twist yourself into any kind of pretzel now - including recreating the past - to try to push your anti-Hillary case.
Although, of course, that's largely out of her hands - except for one thing:
The Shuster incident with MSNBC. Hillary stood up to both their misogyny and their "Clinton rules" coverage. Maybe that changes the game - maybe not. But Hillary (and, of course, her supporters and all self-respecting women in general) made a strong stand here.
All I know is that while I'm largely boycotting MSNBC, for obvious reasons, I've been curious to see if anything's changed - so twice today I went there and "peeked" - for less than a minute each time. But in my two short excursions I heard:
Pat Buchanan talking about how the republicans would shred Obama in the GE
Todd whatshisname saying that the Dem nomination is a "jump ball" now - didn't hear anything like "it's all over for Hillary now" so I'm taking that as a sign they're trying to be evenhanded - who knows how long it'll last.
Don't have any idea if these two are representative of a new, more fair, less Clinton-hating narrative on their part or not. Just thought I'd report what I heard.
Also wondering if CNN has learned anything from MSNBC's problems - I'd think (hope) they'd clean up their act if only to stave off the same thing happening to them - but ya never know.
This statement says more in one sentence about the pathetic state of "journalism" in this country than it will ever say about the Clinton campaign.
Gimme a break! "A source said!" Fercripessake - use your brain! Or at least use your conscience!
People who would see right through this "a source said" tripe when it comes to reporting about the Bush administration are all of a sudden touting crap journalism as long as it supports their "case" against Hillary Clinton. And then you devoted a "diary" to it?
If this is real, then a real reporter will end up reporting it using a REAL source - at which time we'll listen. Until then, I'm going with: THIS IS A CRAP DIARY ABOUT A CRAP NEWSPAPER ARTICLE.
