Refresh my memory: Who was the Governor who let tea partiers speak at a media event he organized?
You may not have heard much about it, since it doesn't fit in with the "conservatives are the biggest victims" meme.
You have the wrong party there my friend. The party that pushes the "victim" mentality are the liberal Democrats. Conservatives don't indulge. Just because he let the people speak doesn't get him a special check mark or star. He's still a liberal.

I vote the tea party starts sending invitations RSVP so they have to respond. Let's see how many will show up or even respond and how many will get investigated.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't communicating with the people part of what the President is supposed to do in a democracy? Presidents who are aloof are not well thougt of. In fact, I seem to recall a relatively recent President who was much lauded for his communications ability. His communication seemed to be what people admired most about him and it made him remembered fondly, even though he was not popular when he left office. It made the public willing to overlook his misguided policy choices and the many ethical and legal failings of members of his administration.
It's hard to imagine a President who is not a "publicity hound." The Presidency is a poor career choice for the shy, retiring type.
There's communicating and then there's pontificating to the unwashed masses; which is what captain teleprompter does. As for misguided policies; how about identifying our nation's enemies and reacting as such. Or perhaps you prefer what the 'messiah' has done; alienate our staunchest allies and cozy up with our foes, like venezuela, cuba, russia and china. Or maybe flush a billion dollars down the tubes with his stimilus program? Reagan was a popular two term, respected and admired president. He made mistakes, yes, but he loved our country. Your president is none of these, he is an arrogant, self-absorbed radical narcissist, nothing more. If the msm had vetted this turd, he never would have been elected...

Yes, Governor Dayton is still a liberal. No one said he wasn't. Last I checked, he was within his rights to be one.

Conservatives are the biggest, whiniest crybabies in America. "The msm picks on us." "All the minorities get special privileges." "Al Franken stole the election, because he won." Give it a rest.

You're a classy guy, aren't you? Maybe you could use some anger management help.

The "msm" vetted President Obama thoroughly when he ran. What you don't seem to grasp is that it didn't bother the rest of the electorate very much. Your complaint is with the "unwashed masses" who decide the outcome of elections in this country: they didn't agree with you, so you're throwing a four-to eight-year hissy fit. You can cling to your fantasies about where he was born, or that he is some dangerous Islamo-Marxist (interesting combination) because let's face it, that's all you've got. An election did not go your way. Cope.

If the "msm" had vetted President Reagan thoroughly, there is no way he would have won a second term, or, if he had, been allowed to finish it out (check out the 25th Amendment). Popular? Right--that's why his successor ran on a "stay the course" platform and ... oh, wait, he didn't do that, did he? There is an abiding illusion that President Reagan was universally loved. Remember, however, that when he left office, his approval ratings were lower than President Clinton's were when he left.

Now, be sure to wipe the spittle off your screen before you go and check out what Glenn Beck tells you to think today.

You're actually the one with the elevated blood pressure here. I never said that Reagan was universally loved...it's not actually possible with amount of lunatic leftist that reside here. Check your history books, Reagan's successor actually won; HW Bush. There were two reason that he lost the following election; Perot and breaking his "No new taxes" pledge. I realize a myopic idealogue such as yourself (that resides in a bubble) is afraid of reality...thankfully though, most of us live in the real world. Denying the fact the majority of the msm member tilt leftwards only makes you look like a bigger fool that your previous posts do. Just imagine 60 Minutes digging into oh-bummers ties to bill ayers and jeremiah wright? They were to busy carrying his water I guess. Your rants make you sound like some pedantic 19 year old college student, only reciting his liberal prof's talking points... Grow up and inform yourself with something other than MPR.

"Dope"? Are you playing "Leave it to Beaver"?

Look, Beav, you might try reading your own posts. Why did Obama win? It's because the MSM didn't investigate his connections with Bill Ayers and/or Jeremiah Wright enough! Never mind those connections were all over the news for a few weeks--your sort couldn't be satisfied unless the public ran Obama out of the country on a rail. No, it wasn't that the nation had its fill of failed right-wing policies: gosh, if only the public had been adequately informed, the election would have gone my way!

I could go on, but frankly, you bore me.

Nice comeback...except you didn't dispute the facts I presented. You failed to address any of my points, except with less than witty sarcasm. You don't like getting your butt handed to you, do you?(The msm never explored these ties to the extent that they tried to dig up dirt on palin, gingrich or other republicans.) Obama won the elected based on preying on white guilt, class envy and just plain none to subtle racism from a portion of America's minority groups. How's that oh-bummer koolaid tasting now?

Good one.

Why do you assume I haven't read it? Is it because you think that if I had, I would be so convinced of the inescapable logic that I would become an immediate convert to objectivism and start wearing a gold dollar sign lapel pin?

I don't say it was a total waste of my time. At least I know what all the fuss is about.
