You kind of have to give it to MSNBC.com for publishing this article, if only because it shows the folly that inevitably comes with demeaning the office of the president with cheap pop-culture stunts.
Congressional Republican opposition to the Iran deal simply boils down to kowtowing to opposing by the Israelis, MSNBC's Chris Matthews suggested during a roundtable discussion exchange with Republican strategist John Feehery on the Monday edition of Hardball. "Why don't we just turn it over to the Knesset then?" Matthews sneered, in reply to Feehery citing Israel's concerns about Iranian-sponsored terrorism. "Why have even a foreign policy in this country?"
But mere moments later, Matthews defended liberal Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), who is on record opposing the deal, by saying that of course he's "going to defend the interests of Israel and it's legitimate he do so. OK, there's nothing wrong with that. It's a fact."
Last week, you may recall, an EPA bureaucrat fouled the Animas River in Colorado by accidentally unleashing a torrent of polluted water from an abandoned mine. Fast forward to today and the Obama/McCarthy EPA's announcement of a new rule intended to tighten methane emissions from oil and natural gas exploration. MSNBC host the Rev. Al Sharpton brought on EPA administrator Gina McCarthy to discuss the new regulation.
As it was virtually impossible to ignore the Animas River contamination, Sharpton sought to quickly dispatch the issue before getting to friendlier territory.
The Big Three broadcast evening newscasts tonight ignored a new audit showing that the government may have paid out subsidies to ObamaCare purchasers who were not eligible for them.
Leave it to the Daily Beast to find objectionable a completely voluntary religious, not-for-profit alternative to for-profit ObamaCare-regulated health insurance.
Liberal constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe may be one of the men who inspired President Obama politically, but he strongly disagrees with his power grab regarding EPA regulation now, and so all bets are off as far as the Daily Beast's Eleanor Clift is concerned.
During his Thursday monologue, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon turned to the Obama administration for the source of his current events jokes as President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and even the scandal-ridden Secret Service each saw a few jests sent their respective ways.
In a Vice News interview posted on Monday, founder Shane Smith used the first of many softball questions to President Barack Obama to ask how does he “handle the controversies, the negativity” and whether or not he’s “a masochist.” With subjects ranging from global warming to political gridlock to marijuana legalization, Smith was far from a tough interviewer and allowed the President to, without any pushback and bash Republicans.
President Barack Obama was both comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s main topic of discussion and guest on his late night talk show on ABC Thursday night, with topics in the opening monologue and sit-down interview ranging from softball questions about driving, seeing a dentist, and aliens, to substantive topics such as the letter 47 Republican Senators sent to Iran, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, and Ferguson.
In a sign that the liberal media is deathly afraid of the American public coming around to Republican criticisms of President Obama vis-a-vis Iran, Hardball host Chris Matthews tonight suggested Republican senators may be guilty of sedition by violating the 1799 Logan Act.
The Obama White House is in full war mode against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of our best ally in the Middle East, for accepting House Speaker John Boehner's invitation to speak before Congress, while it mollycoddles that region's most dangerous nation, Iran.
No one crosses Obama without facing his wrath. No one dares. He is the president.
Well before Obama moved into the White House, he believed his presidency would have “the potential for shifting the national paradigm” to the left as Reagan’s moved it to the right, and Brian Beutler contends that such a shift still could happen if “the economy’s rapid growth in recent quarters” continues.
