… I Do Not Think So , Ari [#Press Coverage]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 14th,2014

.. former Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer seems to think that POTUS and Holder are getting the same treatment from the press that he and Bush did ..

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to the video statement …

.. I disagree , to be honest . The ObamaCraps have been getting it off easy from the most part from the Press Corpse . The LameStream Press acts as if it acts like it were a corpse …. if they gave them the same kind of crap that they dished out to Bush and Fleishcer , Holder would have been long gone .

.. the pressure from the LameStreamers would have been withering . There would have been at least one or more independent counsels on the job investigating major ObamaCrap scandals that are crying out for investigation and for justice ….

… Ouch … The New Republic , circling the Big Drain Pipe …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 15th,2014

.. the shot across the bow was fired by former editor and owner Martin Peretz …

.. Peretz owned TNR for almost 40 years , until the changing media environment forced him to sell the magazine . TNR has almost always been very liberal , but also has been a very strong supporter of Israel … until now …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blogpost ..

.. here is the text of Mr. Peretz ‘ letter to the editor (yes , it was to the New York Slimes) …

To the Editor:

Re “A Bastion for Israel, Seething Inside” (Business Day, March 1), about reactions to a book by a senior editor at The New Republic on the pro-Zionist lobby:

From the beginning The New Republic clearly labeled itself on its cover “a journal of opinion.” The editors of the publication during my 35-year tenure as owner — from Michael Kinsley to Frank Foer — were very comfortable with its support for the Jewish state. On occasion, in fact, I had to keep up with the enthusiasm of Mr. Foer’s Zionist opinions, which do not remotely jibe with John Judis’s virulent anti-Zionist opinions in his book. Yet Mr. Foer not only published a chapter of Mr. Judis’s book, but also allowed Mr. Judis to respond to critical reviews from other publications, which has never been a practice at the magazine, until last week.

The American people’s support for the Jewish state has never been stronger. For Israel’s enemies, and in Mr. Judis’s book, “Genesis: Truman, American Jews and the Origins of the Arab/Israeli Conflict,” this can only be explained as a subterfuge, a big lobby’s lie. In fact, an ancestral homeland for the Jewish people has been sympathetically regarded, first as a possibility and later as a reality, by many generations of Americans.

Why is a liberal magazine like The New Republic not to be permitted to consistently make the case that the notion of Israeli statehood needs to be supported, especially in view of the current violence among Israel’s neighbors?

… Hilarious Take on Dr. Suess [Sarah Palin at C.P.A.C.]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 15th,2014

.. i know , I know , I have Governor Palin speech from C.P.A.C. on here ..

.. however , this segment of it is a howler …

.. Sarah evidently did this as a tribute to Senator Ted Cruz [R-Tx] , from his 21-hour talkathon last fall just before the government shutdown . Ted Cruz was saying goodnight to his young children , who were with his wife at home . So , she tuned the T.V. set to C-Span , and he read Dr. Suess from his talkathon on the Senate floor …

.. in her case , this thing is a parody …. Boy , is it funny …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the speech footage ..

.. the text of her parody …

He forced debate. He told colleagues it was time to stand up and use the tools of the constitution, the power of the purse, to fulfill their campaign promises and to stop Obamacare. But our army bolted. We had hoped that they were reloading, but instead they retreated. And worse, they joined the lapdogs in the lame stream to trash the foot soldiers who had fought for America. Ted Cruz had a clever way of doing it too, Dr. Seuss. Who’d a thunk? Who’d a thunk? Good idea. Maybe I will add ad-lib something. There he was reading it on the floor of the Senate. And through the airwaves he was telling his kids, I am thinking of you. I am thinking of all our kids. I have five kids. I have five kids so reading ‘Green Eggs And Ham,’ over all those years to each one I totally have it memorized especially by the time Trig was born. I had to spice it up a bit. Little Trig, lucky little fella’, his bedtime story now it goes something like this…

I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his health-care scam

I do not like these dirty crooks. Or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress feels. I do not like their crony deals.

I do not like this spying man. I do not like, “oh yes we can.”

I do not like this spending spree. We’re smart we know that there’s nothing free.

I do not like reporters’ smug replies; when I complain about their lies

I do not like this kind of hope. And we wont take it nope, nope, nope….

… An Apt Conclusion on POTUS …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 12th,2014

.. and , to be honest , kind of obvious ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the show segment …

.. former vice – President Dick Cheney was appearing on ” Face the Nation ” on CBS when he unloaded on POTUS . Undoubtedly the ObamaCraps have to be having a king – size case of heartburn over his comments , and that Cheney now looks to be healthy as a horse …

.. with Dick Cheney back and it appears to be fit as a fiddle [and retired from elective politics] , the DemoCraps are going to be getting years of heartburn and grief from him ….
