Good Morning America on Friday featured an all liberal "Morning Mix" panel to bash conservatives, tout liberal talking points about the midterm elections and the stupidity of Sarah Palin. Additionally, host George Stephanopoulos dismissed the Republican gains, claiming, "...We see, now, every two years, the country just says throw everybody out. Again, it's happened all the time."
Actually, it hasn't. Tuesday's GOP landslide was the biggest swing in House seats since 1948. Journalist Deborah Norville appeared on the panel to interpret the election results as a call for compromise: "Because, clearly, the message of this vote on Tuesday was that Americans are sick of the status quo."
Liberal actress Patricia Clarkson offered bromides about the new Republican majority: "I think the party of no is going to be the party of uh-oh. 'Cause they're not going to get anything done. They're going to see exactly what [Obama's] been up against."
Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday Defended the building of a mosque near Ground Zero as a monument to tolerance. Talking to conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, he proclaimed, "This is a country founded on the notion of religious freedom. What better way to say they [the terrorists] haven't won?"
Ingraham decried the plan for being so close to the site of 9/11 terrorist attack: "And I say the terrorists have won with the way this has gone down. 600 feet from where thousands of our fellow Americans were incinerated in the name of political Islam?"
This prompted the ABC co-host to chide, "In the name of militant, radical Islam, not in the name of Islam."
