Obama vs. Panetta In The Kill Obama Decision?

Obama vs. Panetta In The Kill Obama Decision?

I don’t stand by what follows because I don’t know the author or the website. It also falls into the “too good to check” category. But read and decide for yourself which has a greater ring of truth: the cool, analytical Obama of the developing White House hagiography (or to quote the notorious catchfart Howard Fineman , “ President Barack Obama just proved himself — vividly, in almost Biblical terms — to be an effective commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States”)? or this story describing the indecisive, goofy wuss whom we’ve come to know over the previous painful 29 months? The primary…

Chris Matthews Show Celebrates Obama Having More Facebook Friends Than Gingrich and Romney

Chris Matthews Show Celebrates Obama Having More Facebook Friends Than Gingrich and Romney

President Obama apparently has 18.5 million Facebook friends which not surprisingly is far more than former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. When the Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman told his liberal colleagues on the syndicated “Chris Matthews Show” what a potential advantage this gives the current White House resident, there was much rejoicing (video follows with transcript and commentary): CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Welcome back. Howard, tell me something I don’t know. HOWARD FINEMAN, HUFFINGTON POST: Well, the organizational battle is starting not just in the states but in cyberspace. On Facebook, Newt Gingrich has 100,000 Facebook fans. Mitt Romney has 800,000, but most significantly, Barack Obama has 18.5 million and that’s an organizational tool that…

MSNBC’s Fineman: Obama to Run Vs. a ‘Tear Down Congress,’ Lieberman ‘Takes a Lot of Guff’ from MSNBC

?Appearing as a guest on Monday’s Countdown show on MSNBC, the Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman – also a political analyst with MSNBC – spoke favorably of the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law, asserting that “this historic vote will be remembered as a very important one in the social history of the United States,” and, as he admitted that independent Senator Joseph Lieberman “takes a lot of guff on this network,” gave the former Democrat-turned independent Senator “credit where credit is due” …

Are you sick and tired of being called a racist because you don’t agree with Barack Obama’s policies?

NBC’s Chuck Todd on Hardball Ponders: Is Ken Buck, ‘Sharron Angle in Drag?’

NBC’s Chuck Todd on Hardball Ponders: Is Ken Buck, ‘Sharron Angle in Drag?’

NBC’s chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd, substitute hosting for Chris Matthews, on Wednesday’s Hardball, managed to question the political viability of two Republican candidates in one sentence as he asked his guest panelist, Jonathan Martin of the Politico, “Is Ken Buck, you know, Sharron Angle in drag?” Going over the results of yesterday’s primary races with Martin and Newsweek’s Howard Fineman, Todd claimed the “Democrats are doing a touchdown dance” because of Buck’s victory in the Republican primary contest for the Senate seat in Colorado and also relayed some rather colorful descriptions of Buck, as seen in the following exchange, aired on …

Howard Fineman: Obama’s Economic Policies ‘Saved The Day’

Howard Fineman: Obama’s Economic Policies ‘Saved The Day’

Despite unemployment sitting at 9.5 percent and over 3 million jobs lost since this President was inaugurated, Newsweek’s Howard Fineman says the economic policies enacted by Barack Obama “were good ones and smart ones and saved the day.” Chatting with MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Friday’s “Countdown,” Fineman was nicely set up by the shill asking the questions. “Does anyone — can anyone actually believe that the Democrats had then done nothing and had maintained that status quo that the current economic situation would be better instead of worse?” With the ball positioned nicely on the tee, Fineman chunked a drive into the water on the left (video follows with transcript and commentary): KEITH OLBERMANN: Time …

&cat=7&pid=83389&cache=true">&cat=19&pid=83389&cache=true " alt="Top Ten Most Left-Biased Working Journalists" class="alignleft" />

-By Warner Todd Huston A few weeks ago I penned a ten-part series featuring the top ten most left-biased journalists working in America today. It appeared on Andrew Breitbart’s website BigJournalism.com and also on my own site PubliusForum.com. I’ve mentioned the series a few times in various posts here on GatewayPundit, and because of those mentions I’ve gotten a comment or two and a few emails asking me to repost it all here. Each of the ten entires is a 500 or more word essay detailing various instances of bias…

Media Growing Leery of Obama

Media Growing Leery of Obama

[Guest post by DRJ] Last night it was MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Howard Fineman questioning President Obama’s handling of the Oil Spill, including this statement by Matthews : Ludicrous that he keeps saying [Secretary of Energy] Chu has a Nobel prize. “I’ll barf if he does it one more time.” Today it’s Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson . Apparently the media’s new talking points are that President Obama relies too much on Steven Chu’s irrelevant Nobel Prize: “Less than a minute into President Obama’s Oval Office address, my heart sank. For the umpteenth time since the Gulf of Mexico oil spill began, an anxious nation was informed that…
