Wolf Blitzer Nails Rep. McHenry On Accusation Against Dems In Foley Scandal: Yes Or No: Do You Have Any Evidence?...

This morning on CNN's Late Edition, Wolf Blitzer hosted a segment on the Foley page scandal with guests Representative Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and Representative Charles Rangel (D-NY). McHenry was slinging accusations that Democrats had knowledge of Foley's inappropriate emails to pages, and held the information until before midterm elections, even though there is no evidence of such a maneuver and ABC News, after breaking the story, said that their sources were Republican.

Blitzer cornered McHenry during the segment:

5. And that's when Blitzer should have said, "I'm not continuing until
you answer my question." "Yes or no....do you have PROOF of your INSINUATIONS?" He should have pinned him down on it. Someone needs to stop the LIES.

10. McHenry was so bad. "Comeon Nancy, you have GOT to prove a negative."

This is sick. Right out of the Rove playbook. Blame the other side...take a strength and turn it around. Not this time KKKarl.

BTW, who is McHenry? Where is the leader of the rethug party, Kenny-Boy M?
Oh, that's right! He is a closeted gay rethug....joke is on them.

edit:L usual stuff

7. Well, the divide between reality and fantasy has become very wide
Blitzer has no choice but to align himself with the real world and not the Limbaugh, Drudge, or Hannity dreamworld if he wants to retain any credibility at all.

9. I'll said it before and I wil say it again...
The Dem's would have been incompetant to have the EMails and release them when they did...

Why not wait until the GOP leadership had scattered across the country to seak reelection?

11. That was great!
Wolfie didn't let it go either. He pressed him about three or four times to give evidence, which of course he couldn't. Tweety same thing, he asked over and over what is the evidence he has and, not his opinion.

13. Scavengers eat the dead; I'm not impressed by media parasites
They attack the wounded rather than investigating the robustly corrupt still in power. They're useful to the food chain--someone's gotta help the maggots get rid of decomposing carcasses--but big media is still staying blind to a dozen other abuses.
