WHY didn't the nasty comments about Michelle get this much attention in 2008?

WHY is it that Foster Freiss' comments about our President needing a bulletproof teleprompter isn't getting as much attention as Hillary Rosen's comments? He made a subtle suggestion of violence against the President of the United States for crying out loud?


WHY are the Republicans allowed to make such a big deal about this "phony war on women" that all the news outlets feel they have to respond ~ But when the Republicans make a big deal about the phony war on Christmas, no one says a word.

Why? Why? Why?


Turning off the news and turning on some tunes instead.

1. Because the media gets to decide.....

not anyone else....and they need a tight race, and to date, it really hasn't been.

Romney and his mommy jeans are so bad, the media has to do what it can to
shore up Romney's numbers so they can get those big millions of advertising dollars
into their coffers.

When the media keeps announcing this is going to be a "close" race, and the most
expensive race in history......they will make it all happen. As far as they are concern,
that is their only job!

2. Because Democrats are back to their overlt timid game again!

They are so afraid of taking stand on "controversial" issues that they would rather forgo any opportunity to take shots at rePIGs even if it is to the advantage of Democrats.

I guess the backbone we thought they have acquired is really a temporary thing - an illusion, if I might say.

3. There was no controversial issue in what was said by Hillary Rosen......

but go ahead and blame Democrats, why don't you?

After all, that is exactly what the gop/media puppet masters are ordering!

Enjoy having your strings pulled along with your great big-o backbone!

8. There is a difference between taking a stand on a controversial issue

and not defending some woman who used to work for the DNC because she said something she knew could easily be taken out of context.

I don't see the Democrats abandoning the "Mitt Romney-as-Monopoly-guy" line of attack any time soon. Relax.
