Carl Bernstein Slams Media's '50/50' Shutdown Coverage:'This Is About The Republican Party'

Bernstein applauded the "Morning Joe" crew for highlighting a memo from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who echoed President Barack Obama in saying that Democrats have already made concessions by agreeing to funding the government at sequestration levels.

"It's about demagoguery and it needs to be viewed that way," Bernstein said. "What you just did on the air with that quote from Eric Cantor, every newspaper in America, The Wall Street Journal, ought to have it on the front page."

"It's about truth. It's about fact. It's about a wing in [the GOP] that has no interest in truth or governing or fact and it's bringing the country down," he continued. "It might not bring the party down. Like McCarthy, it might work. That's the terrible thing."

The wife of a person I work with has just begun cancer treatment. With the prospect of our company withdrawing the health insurance benefit because of ObamaKare, he is now contemplating having to sell his house and become an apartment renter.
The lowering of living standard in the United States under control of Democrats is beginning, just like what happened in every country that has ever allowed its government to be infected with Marxist communism in history.
Do the same thing and you will see the same results.

They've only had 4 years to build that website....

And the Democrats think it's a good thing for these same incompetent people to manage health care.

End this Marxist welfare program. I don't care how it's ended. Just end it. Make it go away. I don't care how that's done. Just make it go away.

A closer look at a Facebook post on a man's struggle with the Obamacare marketplace

Our ruling

The Facebook post tells the story of a man who says he opted out of Obamacare soon after the marketplace was launched on Oct. 1, 2013, and was informed that he owed a fine of more than $4,000.

The post includes many elements that make no sense or are flat-out wrong -- and can be easily debunked by reading the law or reliable summaries of it. We rate it Pants on Fire.

What’s Wrong With the Republican Right?
W. James Antle III
Conservative scorecards don't explain why the GOP fails to get policy results.
There is one more step in this evolution: evaluating whether conservatives are actually producing results. Too often, conservatives measure that by the volume of liberal outrage a Republican political figure inspires.
But while Reagan and Michele Bachmann were equally panned on the New York Times editorial page, which of them has more to show for all the liberal vitriol they endured? It does not even come close.
If conservatives won’t start taking results more seriously, you can bet the rest of the Republican Party soon will. In the 2016 primaries, Chris Christie will say that while his opponents were conducting marathon speaking sessions, he was beating liberals at both the ballot box and the statehouse in a Democratic region.
Even sooner, establishment Republican voices on Capitol Hill will start demanding to know what Cruz has bought the party as they prepare to cut a deal with Democrats.
In order to achieve victory, the late conservative activist Howard Phillips used to say,“first we must seek it.” Even before that, we must define it—and perhaps more ambitiously than we have done in the past.

partisan?

sooner or later you folks living in FOXbot fantasy land will have to abandon the fantasy and admit that reality is kicking your ass. otherwise....you'll just have to keep griping about the Democrat in the WH.
