The always-excellent Bill Whittle:
I’m a little late in getting to this, but it too good to ignore.
This video below speaks to a very large reason of why I loath CBS News. As these two, so-called reporters interview Mitt Romney, their questions just drip with disdain as they attempt to goad Romney into accusing the Obama campaign of making racist remarks, which it did. Also listen to the way the info-babe misquotes Joe Biden’s remarks, quoting Biden as saying “Republicans want to unshackle Wall Street and put middle class Americans back in chains”.
What Joe Biden said was something quite different
Romney wants to let the—he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules–unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains.
Also note the unflattering screen cap that anchors the video. It makes it look like Romney has been on a bender for the last several days and just woke up to do the interview.
All things told, it’s very hard to understand the ruthlessness of the left and how they are willing to cast aside all semblance of reason to enact their ideology. As citizens, we see it so often we’ve become immune to it. We dismiss it with an “oh well”, without fully understanding the depth of their resolve. Any argument against it is deemed “laughable” on its face by our vaunted, mainstream media. Such is the tribulation of the (so-called) right-wing blogosphere.
We are just now learning about the lengths to which the left will go to silence its opposition. Today is “Everybody blog about Brett Kimberlin” day and represents an unprecedented solidarity among right-leaning bloggers in saying “enough is enough”.
