Shuster compares Obama’s “indoctrination” of little school children to Bush reading My Pet Goat

Sounds like a joke, doesn’t it, but he was serious – which is the joke, I guess.

This is the depths to which David Shuster (MSNBC) is willing to go in order to justify anything this administration does or says.  He’s talking here about the indoctrination implied in asking school children to write essays on what they want to do to help Obama and to memorize quotes from Obama.  They should be thinking about what they could do for their country – not Obama.  But never the less…..

Here is an exchange between Shuster and Michael Leahy:

SHUSTER: Mike, I’m going to give you one more chance. I’m going to try one more time with a yes-or-no. Was it a subversive threat when George W. Bush read “My Pet Goat” on 9/11, which essentially might have encouraged kids to go out and get a pet goat even though in Florida, where he was giving the speech, it’s against the law to have a goat unless you’re on a farm, so was the president trying to encourage kids to subvert the law when he did that?

LEAHY: David, you are so in the tank for Barack Obama, you should be on the White House communication staff, not at MSNBC.

Yep. I have a feeling he’s already on the payroll, but if he went to the WH then he wouldn’t be able to broadcast his drivel for an hour every day.

See Newsbusters for audio and video of this example of what MSNBC passes off as “news” every day.

But more on the children:

Catch the MoveOn Monster

Pro Obama health care protester bites off finger of 65 year old man. Who is the man to the far right dressed in black? Call Crime Stoppers with tips: 800-222-TIPS.

finger biter 2

An altercation begins between William Rice, right, in khaki shirt and olive shorts, and an unidentified man wearing black, who authorities say bit off Rice’s little finger. Anyone with information about the biting incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.

I noticed yesterday that both David Shuster and I believe Rachel Maddow too were quite amused that the man was a Medicare recipient. Yeah, 65 years old, stands to reason. He has paid a part of his salary for his entire working life (by law) into Medicare, and his employer contributed an equal amount, so he SHOULD have  Medicare.  That doesn’t mean he wants what is now designed for older Americans to take over the whole system, especially since it is widely believed that Medicare is going Broke.  That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it, if something is unsustainable, make it 500 times bigger.

But I guess that makes it okay for the Moveon.org guy to bite off his finger? The stinking hypocrital media. Can you see it if it had been the other way around? What if a member of the “mob” had done the biting? I wouldn’t want to see it.
