There are stupid people. There are truly stupid people. There are pathologically stupid people. And then there are liberals who literally use what little brains they have to become even MORE stupid.
Look Who the Press Is Blaming for the Ugly Campaign
Posted 06:58 PM ET
Media Bias: What a surprise. Mitt Romney finally throws a counterpunch to a series of outrageous Obama campaign lies, and the press accuses Romney of going negative. The media’s pro-Obama bias is a wonder to behold.
For months, the Obama campaign has offered the public nothing but lies and distortions about Romney’s record and his position on the issues.
In a series of ads, statements and comments to the press, Obama and his backers labeled Romney an outsourcer, a felon and a tax cheat. They said he wants to “gut Medicare,” outlaw all abortions, even in the case of rape and incest, and put people “back in chains.”
And then an Obama super-PAC ad blamed Romney for causing a woman’s cancer death.
There’s no evidence to back up any of these claims, and most have been thoroughly debunked. But they just keep rolling them out.
So on Tuesday, Romney forcefully hit back at Obama for “wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency . .. President Obama knows better, promised better and America deserves better.”
So which candidate is the press complaining about?
In a front page story on Wednesday, the Washington Post attacked Romney, not Obama, for adding “an even uglier tone” to the campaign.
Romney “lashed out” with the “harshest rhetoric of his campaign,” it said. He’s “ratcheted up his criticism” and is using “increasingly hot language.”
The story went on to complain that, largely thanks to Romney, any hope that putting Paul Ryan on the ticket “would elevate the conversation… has not come to be.”
And it quoted an Obama campaign official about how Romney’s comments “seemed unhinged.”
But you will search that Post story in vain for any reference to the series of bogus claims made by team Obama about Romney’s tenure at Bain. You won’t find a mention of Sen. Harry Reid’s completely unfounded accusations that Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years.
There’s no mention of the Obama campaign’s repeated false claims that Romney opposes abortion even in the case of rape and incest — which earned a “pants on fire” rating by Politifact for being so blatantly false.
And while it mentions that despicable Obama superPAC ad, the Post story fails to explain it was wrong on all the key facts, or mention how Obama campaign aides lied about knowing about the ad before it aired.
Let’s see if we’ve got this straight. Obama hurls character-assassinating lies at Romney for months and is greeted with media yawns. But when Romney calls Obama on it, the press accuses Romney of going negative?
And the mainstream press still wants to claim that it’s impartial?
This reminds me of the Obama who has now tried to incite black people and Hispanics to hate white people, poor people to hate rich people, women to hate men, gays to hate straights, workers to hate employers, illegal immigrants to hate citizens, etc. etc. saying, “I don’t think anyone would suggest I’ve tried to divide the country.” When he is in fact the most polarizing and the most divisive president in American history bar NONE.
And what we are seeing – and have been seeing – from the mainstream media rivals Stalinist Russia or Maoist China in its sheer determination to hide the truth and spread propaganda.
