"The most important lesson I've learned is you can't change Washington from the inside,"
he was talking about the do-nothing Congress that wouldn’t let him single-handedly complete his total make over of America by eliminating the borders and the Constitution. What he actually meant was that in order to do that (fundamentally transform the country) he needed to tell a really good story and for that, he needed the assistance of the mainstream media. Butt how is this news?
And speaking of news, If there was a medal for best MSM performance by a talking head portraying a news reporter, (and there should be) Andrea Mitchell would surely get it for this performance.
MITCHELL: Let's explain this redistribution issue because we have not authenticated this 14-year-old tape from Loyola college when Barack Obama was a state senator. So because we have not independently, at NBC News and MSNBC, authenticated it, we're not airing it.
But the basic issue is, they're accusing President Obama, as John Sununu said to me yesterday, of class warfare.
Because, as we all know, the alphabets always authenticate their stories, videos and documents before they run them. With certain exceptions, of course.
Anyway, the rest of Big Guy’s “You can’t change Washington from inside” comment: “You can only change it from the outside. That’s how I got elected,” speaks for itself.
As you can see from this excellent instructive video, in which David Axelrod demonstrates for rookie Savannah Guthrie how best to spin those pesky “truth gaps” that pop up so often in campaigns: this one regarding BO’s promise to make immigration reform JOB ONE in his first term.
David deserves some kind of a medal too, butt I haven’t quite decided which kind yet.
One final note: I see Lady M has hit the campaign trail again. And I see she needs me so I guess my vacation is drawing to an end. I’ll be getting back to work on Monday, hopefully to eliminate all evidence of the stress of this campaign on MO’s otherwise perfectly toned body.
