Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Who do you interview after a political speech or debate?

Instead of Republicans, Networks Turn to Obama Aide for GOP Debate Reaction
September 8, 2011 by Scott Whitlock

The morning after eight Republican presidential candidates debated each other in California, all three morning shows brought on a Democrat, White House chief of staff William Daley.

Good Morning America, the Early Show and Today all offered varying degrees of tough questions for Mr. Daley. But, couldn’t the networks have at least found one Republican candidate willing to appear on-air?

After GOP Debate, Networks Turn to a Democrat; After Obama’s Speech? A Democrat
September 9, 2011 by Scott Whitlock

On Thursday, the day after the Republican presidential debate, the network morning shows turned to a high profile Democrat for a response. On Friday, the day after Barack Obama’s jobs speech to Congress, the same programs turned to Democratic Vice President Joe Biden.

On Friday’s Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos offered this softball to Biden: “Mark Zandi, the economist say this can create close to two million jobs. Is that what you expect? And what is the down side risk for the economy if the President’s plan doesn’t pass?”

Today co-host Ann Curry blandly asked the VP: “Mr. Vice President, let’s say for a moment that Congress comes together and supports the President’s plan. When is the earliest that the first job could be created as a result of this plan?”

She did wonder if Obama’s proposed legislation was “too late” in coming, but mostly failed to challenge Biden.

In a tease for the segment, Curry oddly asserted, “Also ahead this morning, we’re going to get reaction from both sides to last night’s speech from President Obama.” The reaction from “both sides” never really happened. Yes, Eric Cantor and Rick Perry were quoted in a Chuck Todd segment, but they didn’t appear as guests.

When did it become alright for journalists to show concern and respect for the president?

Ah, if only news media professionals cared so much for our president from 2000 to 2008.

Standard blame game: the other side doesn’t care

What do you do when common sense doesn’t support your agenda? Accuse the other side of either being uncaring or being bigoted. Notice what happens when anyone suggests record deficit spending might not be such a good idea.

Nancy Pelosi: GOP Wants to ‘Destroy Government,’ Asks ‘Do Their Children Breathe Air?’
September 4, 2011 by Eric Scheiner

During a Democratic fundraising event in San Francisco late last month, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D- Calif.) declared Republicans are ‘hijacking’ the deficit issue in order to ‘destroy the public space’ and wondered aloud “Do their children breathe air?”

An audience member recorded Pelosi’s address at the August 21, 2011 fundraiser where the California Democrat attacked Republicans on the deficit. “The Republicans right now are using the idea of deficit reduction as an excuse, they’re hijacking an idea that has some resonance, we all want to reduce the deficit, in order to not reduce the deficit but to destroy the public space, destroy government,” Pelosi said.

PBS’s Tavis Smiley and Guest: Republicans Don’t Want to Help Jobless
September 9, 2011 by Tim Graham

A taxpayer who doesn’t favor Barack Obama might not mind subsidizing a show where he’s attacked as unserious about the country’s problems. But with PBS talk-show host Tavis Smiley, it’s been a relentless attack on Obama from the left. Everything he’s done isn’t half-socialist enough.

On Wednesday, Smiley welcomed fellow leftist and former New York Times columnist Bob Herbert to his show to denounce Republicans for keeping Obama from passing a woefully insufficient second “stimulus” attempt. Herbert thinks Obama’s new spending proposal is about one-tenth of what’s needed. We need a four-trillion-dollar plan.
