Election night cable ratings – Fox Rules

I thought CNN had excellent coverage last night.

MSNBC was a disgrace.  An absolute disgrace.  The place needs to be padlocked.  Now get this, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Eugene Robinson.  See anything a little out of joint about this?  But then I guess they don’t have anything but far left people on the network.  But could they have invited someone in to have a little itty bit of balance.  Maybe no one would come on.

And these grown people, supposedly civil, educated people, professional journalists, on national tv acted like a bunch of high school kids, giggling and laughing in the background, badgering the interviewees.  Especially especially especially the women.  I’ll try to put up a video of the treatment they gave Michele Bachmann and congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.  Anyone who is conservative and goes on that network really deserves whatever they get, I guess, because it’s nothing but an ambush from the word go.  But just the disrespect and mocking of these bullies left me feeling sick and I felt like crying.  These are vicious people on there – all of them.  They are hatred and bigotry on display.

Where is Zell Miller when you need him?   His conversation with Chris Matthews has even more relevancy today than it did back then.  Mr. Miller called Matthews on his treatment of a woman.  It really is too bad we can’t have a duel in these days.  I think it would very quickly reveal who the cowards are.

Here’s the Bachmann interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdan9FyoyQE

Someone has compiled some of the highlight moments of this circus called MSNBC:  http://www.theblaze.com/stories/daily-beast-moments-from-msnbcs-apocalyptic-night/

But, hey, they and their network get what they deserve as well – ratings so low as to be a scratch.   And as long as there are video tapes of their performance, there will be questions for future generations how, in 2010, this behavior, especially towards women, was tolerated.

“Elections have consequences” – Barack Obama


Healthcare Summit, February, 2010:

After hundreds of hours of congressional debate, a summer of rowdy town hall meetings and a Massachusetts election that upended all political calculations, President Barack Obama and congressional leaders spent Thursday talking still more about reforming the U.S. health care system.

…..

At the end of the session, the president suggested that if no deal was at hand, Democrats would press forward alone and let voters be the ultimate judge. “That’s what elections are for,” he said.

Uh huh.

That was just one of the punches in the face.  Another came in Washington, D. C. on the eve of the Obamacare vote in the House,  when citizens appeared in Washington begging them not to pass it.  That was when Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, and the democrats arrogantly marched down through the crowd with head thrown back and smirk on face.  Image seared in my memory. They made their choice with eyes wide open. There was no compromise. There was no concession to those who did not agree with them. Then they even put out lies about the citizens who gave up their time and money to pay their own way to plead with them, thumbing their collective noses at them.

Then the Senate democrats do dirty deals behind closed doors, divvying out tax money as if it belonged to them to influence votes.  And, finally, voting at midnight on Christmas Eve, knowing, of course, that most Americans would not be paying attention.

Now they want compromise?  Compromise you say?  Message:  The winners do not compromise.

Gridlock?  You better believe it.  Stop them in their tracks.  Put a measure to repeal Obamacare to a vote.  Make them record their votes.  Make the president repeal it.  Then do it again.  Record their no votes.  Take names.  Count the repeals – for two years if necessary.  Make them the party of No.
