Peggy Noonan: If Biden Were Republican Meet the Press Subject Would Be 'How Stupid Is This Person?'

 

 

 

 

We need to keep Biden in. Remind the independent voter that Joe's just a heart beat away from the Presidency

 

Totally agree!

 

Remember when he was brought on board to give weight to the Obama team?

I think his big problem is there is no filter between his brain and his mouth.

During his vetting, he promised to behave and stay on message. They were worried about him from the get go. They should have followed their initial instincts, but then we would not be having all of this fun. And I still hear the left saying that Palin is dumber than Biden.

Question: Should I be having this throbbing pain in my head?

I've been wandering around the internet for a bit today, and I think the tide is turning. In fact, I think in some corners, hell has frozen over.

That's right. The cover of Newsweek and the article is devastating. Drudge is right...Tina bites.

 

But what is most interesting is that in the comments on articles today, I have seen no defense of Obama. I've seen people called idiots, I've seen posts claiming that three life-long republicans are going to vote for Obama and I've seen posts blaming Bush. But not a single articulate defense of Obama's administration and what they are doing. It's been reduced WHOLLY to cult of personality. This is a monumental shift from four years ago.

OK I made it 1/2 way thru. Throbbing in head from idea being discussed AND the speaker. Really, really hard to listen to.

Lee Doran is great....The ideas from HuffPo on the other hand....are quite another deal.

Good article. And the key thought:

 

Could it be the Daily Beast/Newsweek combination has not been attracting the kind of readership they expected, and they believe a little objectivity was in order?

Or is this just a tiny dose of conservatism before a deluge of the most biased Obama-loving/Romney-bashing imaginable?

As the late Ed Hart used to say, we will know in the fullness of time.

@Valin I agree.

 

This is a well written, balanced article. The kind of thing you would actually expect from someone who was committed to fairness. My standard is not that I will agree wholeheartedly with the author or the perspective, but that it has an underlying fairness and respect of different points of view.

 

One of the things that has really bothered my about the press is the shifting of standards, the basic belief that their ideas are the righteous ones and the lack of reasonable arguments. That's when I cry foul. And interestingly, I think it is where they torpedo their own aims.

 

This article from Phil Mushnick in the NYP is a good example of what happens when your agenda becomes transparent.

He's worked so very hard. It's been so hard on him. He can barely stand the weight of the burden. What could be more loving then letting him off the hook? I think the next time someone asks me who I'm voting for I'm going to say "I'm voting for Romney because I just love Obama so much I don't want to see him suffer anymore."

This is non-political and you'll figure it out quickly.

Pontification of the day:

 

Todd Akin is an idiot. I don't care what he meant, I heard what he said. Sheesh. Joe Biden much?

While I don't think that is always true, in this case it most certainly is!

 

(I think it is very important to tell people how you feel about them before it is too late. Other than that, right on.)

If Akin Remains In, NRSC Will Spend Nothing on Mo. Senate Race

Katrina Trinko

August 20, 2012 2:28 P.M

 

An NRSC source just confirmed to me what various outlets have been reporting: If Todd Akin remains the Senate candidate, NRSC will invest no financial resources into the Missouri Senate race. Previously, NRSC had planned to spend $5 million.

 

And Crossroads has already taken some TV ads off the air, reports Politico.

Cornyn to Akin: ‘Carefully Consider What Is Best.’ Hint, Hint, Nudge, Nudge.

Jim Geraghty

August 20, 2012 1:34 P.M.

 

 

U.S. Senator John Cornyn, Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, today made the following statement regarding Congressman Todd Akin:

 

“Congressman Akin’s statements were wrong, offensive, and indefensible. I recognize that this is a difficult time for him, but over the next twenty-four hours, Congressman Akin should carefully consider what is best for him, his family, the Republican Party, and the values that he cares about and has fought for throughout his career in public service.”

 

Not too hard to read between those lines, huh? Akin hasn’t left yet; if Cornyn were completely behind that stance, he wouldn’t be calling for additional “consideration” in the next twenty-four hours.
