Warren Campaign Crumbles Under Legal Insurrection Pressure
OK, that *should* have been the Boston Globe headline….
“Elizabeth Warren may retool TV ads – Is urged to show a personal side”
Honestly, Professor: the RightScoop finding on the CBS reporter coordinating with other reporters on their ambsuh of Mitt Romney should have its very own thread. You should not only link to it, but also embed the video, so everyone can hear it, from the horse’s dirty mouths.
This is waaay too big to be left under the covers. Move it to its own thread, and fast. As Professor Reynolds just pointed out,
“This needs to stop. They need to be called out individually, by name, repeatedly, every time. Don’t let them escape responsibility, and don’t let them pretend that what they’re doing is journalism. And complain to their bosses.”
Oh yes. Put them on the spotlight and make them squeal like the pigs they are.
This has to go viral, and fast. I’m afraid to say the damage to Mitt Romney has already been done by those jerks.
It’s not an embeddable video, all I can do is link to the post.
Off camera, you can hear CBS’s Crawford strategizing:
JAN CRAWFORD: That’s the question….Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question.
ARI SHAPIRO, NPR: Your question? Your statement?
CRAWFORD: I mean your statement. Not even your tone, because then he can go off on –
SHAPIRO: And then if he does, I think we can just follow up and say ‘but this morning your answer is continuing to sound’ –
Then the feed is cut off. Crawford later added, “No matter who he calls on, we’re covered on the one question.” A man who is not Shapiro states, “Do you stand by your statement or regret your statement?”
Then, maybe we should intact hem and ask. Shouldn’t be difficult for them.
This video should go viral. Big time. This is a case that goes beyond journalistic malpractice. They should be strongly confronted for this. First, it was at the RNC. Now, this.
I’m sorry, typing on my iPhone while waiting to pick up my child.
I meant “contact them”.
This is excellent…!
It looks like HHS Sebelius MAY get sacked…
No fan of Ms. Rubin, but…
She does a good job of rounding up the MULTIPLE sources of support for Romney on the Islamist attacks.
[Egyptian Prime Minister] Kandil’s statement: “We ask the American government to take a firm position toward this film’s producers within the framework of international charters that criminalize acts that stir strife on the basis of race, color or religion.”
Hey, boats with guns are boats with guns…right…???
The DNC just keeps on giving!
Very nice read by Sarah Hoyt on why Romney is right BECAUSE he is no rock star.
Obama’s Foreign Policy Is Now A Smoking Hole In The Ground Littered With Dead American Citizens
Interesting background re: Obama’s Univ of Chicago Law School “career”:
Here’s a good topic that perhaps LI could cover from time to time:
The complete fecklessness of our current party leaders is astonishing at times.
I love the focus on stopping Obama, and electing more good conservative leaders, from Ted Cruz to Mia Love, here at LI. Important to win the big battle.
I wouldn’t mind the occasional action alert to target our Congressman and remind them that we are onto their darn stupid games.
This post so thoroughly exposes the cynical and useless nature of our party leaders except for the 25% – 30% true conservatives, that I think we need to highlight these games more often in more venues.
Especially in witty, well written, influential sites that get a lot of especially discerning viewership attracted to a certain Ivy Leagure professorial style.
Just thinking out loud here 😉
Obama can’t meet with Bibi, but he spends 6 months with an author, Michael Lewis, following him around? Now I know what he does with his time…
Is Michael Lewis gay?
Great read on Egypt. Krauthammer said tonight they should “go to hell”
McCarthy gets even more explicit
The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request on Tuesday to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of the month.
I just heard that to memorialize 9/11 an Egyptian mob attacked our embassy, tore down the flag, and exulted about Allah and his prophet.
But, as with LOTS of things, it isn’t just the quantity of new regulation, but the QUALITY (i.e., HUGE over-weaning) of new regulation.
And you ain’t seen NOTHING yet…!!! A second term will see an explosion of new…largely ILLEGAL…regulatory burdens.
Typical. Skip a meal for Barrackah on 9/11!
Cool new site about Obama Buyer’s Remorse paid by the Republican Jewish Coalition….
Whatever happened to the “intelligence” analysts who undercut George W. Bush by declaring that there was no evidence that Iran was trying to build nuclear weapons. Are they still at work providing more wonderful analysis?
All we ever hear about are denunciations of those who argued that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction prior to the US invasion.
May I suggest an addition to your Operation Counterweight list of candidates – I know you have declared it closed, but this seems significant:
Bachmann may have made some mistakes during her bid for POTUS, but we can’t afford to lose her seat, nor can we afford to lose a Conservative in the House.
I’m not one who generally gets involved with conspiracy theories but this did strike a nerve.
It explores the issue and seems to be the basis for Sheriff Joe’s position on the matter.
I’m certainly no expert but…
Nooo, say it ain’t so!
Why do I think that articles such as http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/24/us-usa-campaign-romney-ira-idUSTRE80N04E20120124
and press releases such as http://democrats.waysandmeans.house.gov/press/PRArticle.aspx?NewsID=12225
are trying to lay the groundwork in a (G-d forbid it) second Obama term for IRA “reform” in which IRAs are nationalized, er, looted?
Obama delenda est (strictly in the political sense, overzealous SS agents!)
Meme to spread: September 21 = Clint Eastwood Appreciation Day (i.e., go see “Trouble With the Curve”):
Rhode Island TV has the story about D David Cicilline, House Rep., being accused of massive voter fraud by Anthony Gemma. Gateway Pundit has the story:
It references a Providence Journal news story:
Says Gemma hired a private investigator to explore the issue. Says they turned over their findings to the state police. The Cicilline campaign claimed the Gemma’s claims were preposterous.
Warren doesnt like part of Obamacare.
From the Howie Carr show, Warren gets punked.
Der HUH? UK has crazy idea cutting excessive business regulations might spur economy:
Seeking growth, UK takes ax to business regulation
LONDON (AP) — Britain’s government says it will scrap hundreds of regulations affecting businesses, in the hope of boosting the country’s lackluster economy.
Business Secretary Vince Cable announced Monday that firms would be made exempt from up to 3,000 health and safety laws and other regulations.
“Businesses need to focus all their energies on creating jobs and growth,” Cable said.

Hmmm… That would be a bad thing, right…???
Old news, http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/08/dem-candidate-accuses-dem-david-cicilline-ri-01-of-voter-fraud/
Yep. Read it here first, as they say.
I just thought you’d be interested in the update, if you didn’t know.
“It seems to me her husband’s a Harvard law professor, I’m not sure that’s good news,” said Marc Landy of Boston College. “It might be better if her husband grew up in Southie and his parents were cops and he worked his way up at Star Market or something.”
The guy doesn’t even realize if you’re posing with a beer trying to look like an average Joe that it might be a good idea to open it.
Yeah, he looks authentic. Speaking of authentic, yet more questions arise about Loony Lizzie’s academic qualifications. Stunner.
Things are going WELL…!!!
Get your heads up, people.
Operation demoralize photoshop
Gotsta fix the like button; it’s demoralizing. 🙂
Sarah Hoyt scolds the righsphere for joining the MSM in Operation Demoralize.
A funny one from William Katz’s blog, Urgent Agenda. I quote:
A NOBLE VENTURE – The great and revered philosopher, Lady Gaga, has tweated the following message to her many scholarly followers: “IfObamadontwin i say we try to build a new planet and all go live there.” And I say we help her by hiring a moving van immediately and launching it into space. But we do thank Lady Gaga for her exquisite use of the English language.
Has the SPLC jumped the shark?
That’s beyond jumping the shark!
Can we call it “jumping the couch” now? (After Tom Cruise’s ridiculous stunt on Oprah’s show way, way back then when there was a Katie Holmes who didn’t run away from him – then?)
“Obama will not wait in New York to meet with Netanyahu”
damn near choked on the one below
“In his address, Obama will be expected to demonstrate his leadership skills on the Iranian and Syrian issues, which will be at the focus of Western leaders’ discussions.”
I mentioned this in the Demoralize thread. Gotta judge for ourselves if this is being spun or a poor choice in words by Romney.
Its not the thing I need to hear today. I dont need Romney indirectly praising Obama/Obamacare. He could have answered differently and avoided how this will be spun
When I read it, I thought I’d puke! Check out, if you haven’t already read them:
Over at NRO, stanley Kurtz ponders “Are Republicans Fooling Themselves?” [ http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/316225/are-republicans-fooling-themselves-stanley-kurtz ]. At POWERLINE, John Hinderaker asks “WHY IS THIS ELECTION CLOSE?” [ http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/09/why-is-this-election-close.php ].
I certainly hope Romney isn’t going to carry this sort of thinking into the debates. Obama has made his mistakes, but being a fool isn’t one of them. I’d rather see Ryan debate Obama.
What this means is if the workforce participation rate today were what it was in June 2009 when recovery began, we would have an unemployment rate of 11.2 percent. If you add in the involuntarily unemployed, you’re approaching 19 percent. Which is why I should think from here on in on the basis of these numbers, the Romney campaign slogan should be the title of Paul Krugman’s book which is “End This Depression Now” because these are depression level numbers.
Say it loud. To anyone who will listen.
Rags..its all good stuff that weve unearthed and demonstrated. Another really simple factoid I noticed this morning..its sobering
It will take 3 years of monthly job creation of 350,000 to get to 6%.
That really demonstrates how the hole is getting bigger.
How Americans fall for the gay marriage/abortion/birth control distractions remind me somehow of the old Roman mobs watching the events in the arena.
Maybe people havent changed all that much overtime.
Back then Roman citizens were excited and pacified with the government sponsored events..the gladiators..the chariots in exchage for their utter powrelessness around taxes etc.
Today it seems only the “big battles” have changed. Instead we get gay marriage against traditionalists. Abortion on demand V more traditional types.
Distraction. No thumbs up or down. We Tweet instead.
It is a simple, clear message, and everyone can feel it.
I would tell the tale of the Obamabanana Republic and its lawlessness and totalitarian urges, but some many people would simply look at me like a pole-axed steer.
Just one more unnerving thing about Obama. I noticed in the Israeli documentary his wedding ring was not traditional.
The fact he was married by Wright is obnoxious. But the ring that he chooses to symbolize his commitment and relationship is obviously vastly different from the norm. Maybe it’s some legitimate xenophobia. I don’t know much about Indonesian culture and that’s unnerving. But you can’t get any more personal than marriage. I feel pretty uncomfortable bringing it up. It’s the fact he chooses to symbolize that personal act of marriage with and Indonesian ring. I get that he doesn’t respect the sanctity of traditional marriage.. But Really?? The guy has a fat diamond in his traditionally designed Indonesian wedding ring.
I don’t know. Maybe it’s just about appealing to that liberal multicultural ego.
Here are two good close ups of the ring.
On the article RE “2016” the “Like” button is not working-it says that I voted, when I hadn’t, and will not allow a vote-like.
Is this The One speaking? Or Lonesome Rhodes?
Obama: You’ll Love Me Even More
This meme has legs…!!!
Which is BOTH a civil and criminal wrong. Someone needs to go after this puke.
Chicago Teachers Union Demands 30 Percent Pay Raise
That’s ABOVE their average $71 or 76,000 pay NOT COUNTING BENEs they get right now.
obviously doing it for the kids
this “liberalisim” is becoming increasingly heartbreaking
Elizabeth Warren at the DNC:
“We know that the economy doesn’t grow from the top down, but from the middle class out and the bottom up.”
“The economy doesn’t grow from the top down, but from the middle class out & the bottom up. That’s how we create jobs and reduce the debt.”
Otherwise known as Underwear Gnome economics.
