yikes folks...
crazy crap. However, now that there might be another conservative candidate in Michelle Bachmann the media attacks have been renewed.
Do the media do this with Democratic women? Or Men?
There cannot be a double standard? Could there be?
The news does not follow the same format it used to back in the day. There is a 24/7/365 reporting cycle. To fill in all that time pundits have now taken over the airspace. And with punditry you’ve got news heavily laden with opinion.
No one is safe, and what you see as attacks is becoming part and parcel with media outlets. You might have forgotten how Hillary Clinton was ridiculed over her choice of attire (pantsuits) and when she got teary-eyed during a political stop when she was running for president.
As for Michelle Bachmann, she’s really given everyone from comedians, comedic writers, pundits, all of us, the where-by to poke fun at her. She’s become a caricature. The way she speaks in cliches, her confrontational attitude, even her appearance in response to Obama’s state of the Union address, have left her opened for ridicule and mockery. For the media, it’s a feeding frenzy.

Big Obama donor quits envoy job amid criticism; spent $3,400 in one day on wine, liquor...Sounds more like Pelosi and her family troup, but typical of the people Obama picks……….they sure do follow the leader when it comes to waste.

Palin was/is correct. The left was accusing the right of blood libel. As it turned out, the shooter was a lefty - they usually are. No apology from the left when it turns out to be one of their own...

Another good example of liberal thinking - When The Communist News Network (CNN) and even Geraldo on Fox News, were reluctant to report the Fort Hood shooter as a muslim terrorist...

Liberals were quick to blame Conservatives for Jared Loughner, but slow to label a musloon? And then it turned out that Loughner was a liberal - Yet no apology from the left...

A Republican close to Roger Ailes said that Ailes “thinks Palin is an idiot. He thinks she’s stupid. People like Sarah Palin haven’t elevated the conservative movement.”

The turning point for Ailes was the Tucson shooting. Ailes told Palin not to respond when the media pounced on her rhetoric, but to "lie low." Nonetheless, Palin responded with her infamous "blood-libel" speech.

At that point, Ailes recognized that "a Fox brand defined by Palin could be politically vulnerable."

• Obama: 1967 Lines With 'Swaps' Means Different Israeli Border Than in 1967
May 22, 2011Sun, 22 May 2011 04:00:00 GMT11:05 PM EST
Claiming his remarks earlier this week on borders for Israel and a future Palestinian state had been misrepresented, President Obama said Sunday that "1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps" means the two sides will "negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967." CODE TRANSLATION: AS USUAL I HAD MY HEAD UP MY ASS AND DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT.

Obama digging up dirt on potential opponent Chris Christie... WHAT DO YOU EXPECT………..HE CAN’T RUN ON HIS RECORD OR LACK OF.

Pakistan turns to China for military help...WE WILL JUST CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MAN.

They can either pay the band or shut the hell up.
The world is tiring of their inability to compromise
but President Obama is the only one with cajones big
enough to take them on. Bush the pansy didn't even
try so save that kind of spin for one of your stupid
teabagger friends.

I’m not sure why you’ve chosen to address me as though I give a shit about this guy you speak of. The one that occupies the oval office that is. I have no idea what you mean by “WE Tried To Tell You That Back in 2008” Who are WE and what did you try and tell ME? I certainly don’t recall talking to any “WE” in 2008. You must have mistaken me for “YOU”
