WOW. CNN's Susan Roesgen Just Reamed The Tea Baggers Live
Edited on Wed Apr-15-09 01:30 PM by mudesi
I wish I was recording it. One tea bagger had a Hitler/Obama sign and when she asked him why you'd call the president of the United States a "fascist", and told him that it was very offensive to say such a thing, all he had to say was "Because he is".

Then she went to another one with a 2 year old who started spouting and YELLING all kinds of bullshit about Lincoln and she tried to call him out but he kept shouting like a big baby who wants his bottle. Edit: I want to make it clear that it was the FATHER of the two year old who was acting like a baby!

I want to say Thank You to Susan Roesgen for at least trying to expose these assholes for what they are. She also made sure to point out that these protests are funded by major right wing organizations and she specifically named Fox News.

13. What sort of BS about Lincoln?
Don't they usually try to claim him as one of their own (except in NeoConfederate strongholds).

6. I saw it!
She did a great job holding her ground.

Next time a protester calls Obama a fascist, I hope she puts him on the spot and tells him to define it. I'd bet good money that the guy she talked to has no idea what fascism even means. He just wanted to hold up a sign of Obama looking like Hitler.

The asshat using his toddler as a prop needs to stop getting aggressive with women while holding his child and take a few parenting classes instead.

14. Explain How Telling The Truth Is Biased
She informed those ignorant slobs that Obama CUT taxes and the stimulus money was going to the state of Illinois.

Explain to me why a REPORTER should allow people to spread outright falsehoods.

15. She asked the man a question, and did not allow him to complete his answer
She butted in repeatedly and started lecturing the guy with her own opinions, and with information that may be true but not necessarily relevant to the conversation.

That's not what a reporter is supposed to do.
