66. Why has she waited so long to expose the bastards?
They do this on a regular basis, why is Mitchell suddenly so concerned about the context of the RNC's talking points?

Gee, Andrea, if you'd have been doing your job all along and exposing every lie and distortion from the bush administration he probably wouldn't be in office right now and we wouldn't be having a Constitutional crisis, would we? :eyes:

No way I'm going to give her a pat on the back for this after she's ignored their lies for 5 years. Screw you, Mitchell! :grr:

No way she read that willingly. You could tell by the somber look on her face during the read.

56. She deserved the props this time
It was short and sweet, and it pointed out the wilful untruthfulness (yet again) of Republican leadership. In this case, the messenger spoke the truth, on MSM, and I appreciate that.

Pulease. The talking point has been made. You will be reading and hearing this debunked point for months and years. They care less whether its accurate or not. They will beat that drum on AM radio and Fox and Newsmax like it was written in stone.

22. Not so. Don't be so defeatist. More people realize now that it's garbage
Had they not had opportunities to hear this, they might still believe it. I know there's a hardcore Bush-lover minority that's gonna believe it no matter what, even if Bush arrived down their chimneys in a Santa suit and told them he was lying.

67. Not spin, lie.
Spin always contains a kernel of truth in it somewhere, usually well hidden but there nonetheless. The Republicans just flat out lie THEN spin the lie.

65. of course it matters
...the truth will come out in drips and drabs BUT it is coming and we should rejoice in every small step that is taken to that end. I do believe. To not believe in the truth, honesty and justice and be willing to "work" toward it will give the "enemy" everything they want.The information on the DU helps me greatly to work toward that end.

20. And we can call it the lie it is.
Not a mistake; not a well-intentioned error, but a clear cut, deliberate lie.

We HAVE to make the general public understand that Bush is lying about everything, and keep hammering that point home over and over again.

He has violated the most basic law of politics: he got caught.

Impeach the chimp right fucking now. He is not a kind and the only, I mean the only, reason they did this was because the FISA court turned them down when they wanted to spy on americans with no connection to terror. In other words they wished to follow their political enemies. Same as Nixon. Goodbye dumbshit.

Edited on Wed Dec-21-05 11:46 PM by OregonBlue
for Chris Mathews this week. Would you consider a permanent replacement in that position? Chris has become decidedly biased and watching him brown nose everyone in authority that appears on his show is getting downright embarrassing and reflects poorly on you as a "news" organization. On the other hand, Ms. Mitchell has been entirely professional. Isn't it time for some new blood like Ms. Mitchell!!

perhaps the fact that she is doing the story has more to do with
the fact that Greenspan is out and she can now report without
feeling she is putting her husband on the line,,,,,,
just a thought, or maybe someone just forced her.

Rather than their normal, "he said, she said" type of reporting. If they keep doing this, maybe the RNC will be forced to stop lying.

He's really off base this time. Is it because he was associated with the Nixon White House and he is still basically defending the previous crooked president?

63. Don't give her credit she doesn't deserve
Just like the rest of the MSM that just can't stop talking about impeachment. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great, better late than never and all, but where were ANY of these people when it became CLEAR that this administration lied us into a war that caused hundreds of thousands of deaths, was complicit in the attacks that took place on 911, and so on. Yeah they are all gonna jump on the bandwagon while they still think they can. Nobody wants to go down in flames with someone like Bush, not even some Republicans. But that doesn't excuse ANY of the bastards. I know we need these people right now if we are ever gonna be able to rid our government of these criminals, but when all is said and done, Andrea Mitchell will still be what she has always been, a worthless media shill.

64. This will begin to matter in the newsrooms when
one of THEM becomes either the subject of illegal wiretaps, if not already being done, or one of them has the actual integrity to report the whole story and nothing but the story,sans white house spin and sans rephrasing to try to please the white house sensitivities.

It may be too late to rein in this white house, however. They must have something powerful and dangerous to this nation up their sleeves to counteract the current reaction; how hard will they go after the white house leaker of THIS top secret information? Harder than the Plame leaker? You bet; this was one of those leaks that they did not authorize.

Hey. Anyone ever wonder what Bush and Cheney would say if the CIA might be tapping their phones?

70. Not only is Drudge....
Not only is Drudge glaringly wrong most of the time, and very likely writing in response to the crackle of of nice soft money crossing his palms, he is ugly.

Your first thought may be that this is shallow, and it probably is. You might be thinking he can't help how he looks, any maybe you're right. But I'll give you a bit of wisdom from one of my drunken uncles on the subject of how Drudge can fix it.

He can shut up and hide. That would go a long way toward making his existence more tenable for the world at large. That is all.
