Oh, the horrors of criticizing Dems free stuff strategy

Oh, the horrors of criticizing Dems free stuff strategy

Why this is borderline … well you know … fiscal responsibility.  There’s nothing worse than that.

From Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stoner, Romney’s ‘Free Stuff’ Speech Is a New Low

Wow. If you live long enough, you’ll see some truly gross things in politics, but Mitt Romney’s work this past week “courting black support” was enough to turn even the strongest stomach.

Romney really showed us something in his luridly self-congratulating N.A.A.C.P. gambit, followed by the awesomely disgusting “free stuff” post-mortem speech he delivered the next night in front of friendlier audiences. The twin appearances revealed the candidate to be not merely unlikable, and not merely a fatuous, unoriginal hack of a politician, but also a genuinely repugnant human being, a grasping corporate hypocrite with so little feel for how to get along with people that he has to dream up elaborate schemes just to try to pander to the mob.

Of course, this is Matt Taibbi talking:

Palin — and there’s just no way to deny this — is a supremely gifted politician. She has staked out, as her own personal political turf, the entire landscape of incoherent white American resentment. In this area she leaves even Rush Limbaugh in the dust.

How can someone call Palin “incoherent”? I could see disagreeing with her from a philosophical basis. But “incoherent” doesn’t seem to be applicable.

But I still have to give credit where credit is due – Rolling Stone is both more accurate and fair than the NYT. 🙂

Matt Taibbi is one of the worst human beings on the planet, and that is no exaggeration.

I also found this very interesting regarding the Romney speech to the NAALCP…

Listen to the leader of Women in NAACP, Charlotte Stoker Manning who, while discussing Governor Romney’s speech to that organization, let slip liberalism’s mask of altruism: “You cannot possibly talk about jobs for black people at the level he’s coming from. He’s talking about entrepreneurship, savings accounts — black people can barely find a way to get back and forth from work.” Evidently, the idea that Governor Romney can speak as an adult, in a room full of adults, is quite too much for Ms. Manning, whose degrading and racist remarks are about the most repugnant thing to come along in awhile. But at least she illuminates the President’s target demographic.

Like other members of the Collective, this shows the common contempt in which they hold people they pretend to represent.

    Exactly!

    Anyone who thinks the Democratic Great Society was anything more than Jim Crow Lite, ain’t payin’ attention. Just like then, the Dems still need some of “them” to help control the mob. Imagine all the wasted human potential, genius and talent that the Welfare State has squandered.

Matt Taibbi complains about rich people and compares Goldman Sachs to a vampire squid, then goes home to his expensive lifestyle afforded to him by being paid by a pro-Obama magazine going down the tubes for writing gibberish that almost no one reads.

Sarah Palin can command tens of thousands of people to any speaking event. Taibbi couldn’t fill a coffee house. In fact, people turn the channel when he’s on Fox Business’ Imus in the Morning and that channel already has a low viewership.

    You’re exactly right. They talk left and live right, preach socialism and thrive on capitalism. They wouldn’t have succeeded in the world they wish existed.

      If the real Marxists ever took over, they’d be among the first to go.

      Top of the list: conservatives, of course. Not far behind: loudmouth Leftist useful idiots upset that they are getting screwed, too.

      Alas, any conservative schadenfreude would have to be from the afterlife.

        They will never understand that. They assume, of course, that they will be the overlords.

      Preaching socialism pays. Living socialism does not.

Agree Rags. We can read here about the guy..but not mentioned is his recently acquired skill as a “snip this part out” journalist. Lets get the words I want that validate my rather cosmopolitan progressive mindset that “feels the pain” for his black brothers everywhere.

Also check out Althouse today.

My guess is that Matts only association with the poor injured Black folks he imagines Romney insults, are reflected in his squeaky clean windshield.
Matt is too old for Pampers so he now chooses the pages of Roling Stone to capture his overwraught and phoney racial concerns.

TrooperJohnSmith | July 14, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Like I’ve said, when the Left accuses US of something, rest assured they are already way guilty of the same.

If Mitt had been pandering in the mode of the Dems he would have promised much more”stuff” not less. You’d thik he would be applauded for not trying to out pander the Left.

Maybe it’s just me, but don’t these “journalists” and “news reporters” see any irony in what they say and the fact that they actually do get up most every morning and go out and be productive in their own twisted little way? Is it just me?

I wish Matt Taibbi, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Paul Krugman, Frank Rich and Joe Stiglitz would “self-deport” themselves to their Utopian fantasyland, Havana, Cuba. Beautiful beeches, and they’ll finally be in a country that suits their ideology. Why not?

There the two Nobel Laureattes and the two pundits would finally realize their true economic potential and earn exactly what they are worth – probably no more than $20/month as yard workers.

He could have met the racial-tension issue head on, in other words, just by saying out loud the simple truth that white and nonwhite Americans, and Democrats and Republicans both, need to find more civilized ways to talk about their political concerns.” (from Matt’s article)

Yeah … that’s it Matt, pointing out any problems with racial preferences and objecting to cosntantly being called racist is the moral equivalent of calling people racist and demanding race based privileges. There is no “simple truth” to that, except to a simpleton.

“…..she leaves even Rush Limbaugh in the dust.”

Wow….I can’t help but wonder if in an albeit twisted way this IDIOT knows that he gave a huge compliment to Sarah Palin.

    he gave a huge compliment to Sarah Palin

    Back-handed compliment — maybe.

    I stopped reading his rant when he referred to Sarah Palin’s “sawdust-filled head.”

If Romney hadn’t hit a home run with this NAACP speech , the left wouldn’t be so vicious. That’s probably why they trotted out the whole Bain/criminal thing right now.

What scares me is that word like “felon” tends to stick, whatever the truth. These people are horrifyingly awful.

I followed the link to the website. I was more interested in the commenters than in the article. Such vicious, hateful invective! Points out demonstrable facts, the libs will call you deluded and hit you with a bunch of personal insults (libs have an amazing store of ugly names for conservatives).

This is reminiscent of the

Taibbi appears to be doing the Indignant Screaming Smokescreen Defense. It is typically used by the malfeasant when caught in the act or verbally not having any more wriggle room.

Does Mr. Taibbi get paid by the adjective?

Romney will overcome the tawdry attacks one him just by continuing to be the classy and intellectually honest politician he is. The truth in the end will out. But, that said, what’s a hoot to me is watching all the people right here at this site who used to be the ones bringing the tawdry below-the-belt attacks against Romney on a very personal level –and I mean for months and months on end trashing Romney far worse than anything Obama or the leftard loons have done against him in the campaign so far– but who now are Romney’s BFF. That of all things is what’s most hard to stomach and is most disconcerting.

    Sanctimonious, aren’t we? And with absolutely NO justification!

    We knew Romney’s weaknesses, but you Establishment types shouted us down during the Primaries. Romney started the mud-slinging, and refused Gingrich’s repeated suggestions for a cease-fire.

    Romney is our nominee now. Romney is not Obama. We have to drag him across the finish line if he won’t sprint himself. That means we have to defend him.

    You can’t understand because it’s alien to you. You wouldn’t have done the same for Gingrich or Santorum, or whomever “non-Romney.”

    The ugly, ugly truth: when your Establishment fave doesn’t win, you actively undermine the GOP nominee. Three 2010 Senate races (Alaska, Delaware and Nevada) prove it. (And stow the “weak” candidate nonsense. McCain, Dole, and a whole host of Senate/House candidates through the years have been a whole lot worse.)

    You Establishment Romneybots! You scream about Party unity, but when conservatives bite the bullet and show it, you berate us for hypocrisy.

Mike Tyson, Matt Taibbi and Don Imus, who think it is ok to yuck it up over violent rape fantasies of Palin and Bachmann.

Remember Matt Taibbi – Bachmann Porno is on Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi’s bigoted mind – femisex http://www.femisex.com/content/bachmann-porno-matt-taibbis-bigoted-mind

This is pathetic viewing: Matt Taibbi and Don Imus –two of the most repugnant bigoted sexists out in media land–yoke it up over Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann…Don wanting to see them make out and Matt wanting to get some good Bachmann porn made in the fashion of Palin porn.

From his interview: “Actually, yeah, I’m actually kind of rooting for her to win the nomination, because I can’t wait to see the porn movies that they make,” Taibbi said. “Bachmann-inspired films are going to be great.”

Aside from the pornography angle and his liberal bias against Bachmann, Taibbi explained why the Minnesota congresswoman should be taken seriously.

“I mean, who didn’t see ‘Nailin’ Palin’ – that was classic cinema,” he continued. “And so this is basically sort of a big profile on Michele Bachmann and spent about a month kind of following her around a little bit and the basic thesis is that, you know, she is — everybody laughs at her, she’s hilariously funny, but she’s got a shot. Rolling Stone’s Taibbi rooting for Bachmann to see what porn films she inspires http://dailycaller.com/2011/06/22/rolling-stones-taibbi-rooting-for-bachmann-to-see-what-porn-films-are-inspired/

Theyve never seen themselves as frauds and liars. They are frauds and liars. Over the last few years theyve been exposeed as frauds and liars. They dont like it

Matt really should know incoherent white well, being as to how it fits him like a glove…
