Schadenfreude: Robert Gibbs Edition
This is making the rounds today: There is no doubt there are enough seats at play that could cause Republicans to gain control, there is no doubt about that,” Gibbs told NBC’s “Meet the Press” talk show when asked whether the Democrats would maintain their majority in the House. Less than a year and two months ago, Time Magazine declared Republicans an endangered species.My, my | Read More »
Republican Governors Association Video: Remember November
I was going to submit this without comment, because the video speaks for itself. However, it appears that the video is even more effective than I first thought. Allahpundit at Hot Air notes that Time Magazine (I know. I was surprised to learn that it’s still in publication, too) is already frothing at the mouth over the ad. Apparently, according to Time Magazine, the ad | Read More »
Why Obama is so Dangerous to the Dems
Richard Lowry has a really great insight in this column. I believe it to be true: “It might have been the most revelatory moment of the Obama presidency. In an interview with Time magazine, a chastened President Obama talked of his sputtering Middle East peace initiative. “This is just really hard,” he explained. “This is as intractable a problem as you get.” “As an observation, | Read More »
Bill O’Reilly, Marc Lamont Hill, TIME–this is a no spin zone?
Bill O’Reilly, please retire! Today’s show (you can catch the repeat) of The O’Reilly Factor says it all. O’Reilly talked with someone from TIME magazine about its “Man of the Year”–Ben Bernanke. Right here this morning on Red State, Brad Smith wrote something that makes a lot more sense: “The Real Persons of the Year: The Tea Partiers.” Glenn Beck took the same idea of | Read More »
The Real Persons of the Year: The Tea Partiers
Time goes with Ben Bernanke as Person of the Year. My choice, at Politico’s Arena, is the tea partiers. “Maligned by all the “right thinking” people, denounced by Democrats and liberals as ignorant and racist, abandoned by much of the conservative intelligentsia, these ordinary Americans persevered, devoting their personal time, standing in the cold and rain, to stand up against the massive government power grab | Read More »
TIME on small business owners:Take your medicine!
It seems the writers and editors at Time Magazine can’t comprehend why small business owners would not want to have the Democrat’s House Health Care “Reform” bill enacted into law. Why wouldn’t these small business owners want to increase their regulatory and financial burden? Don’t they realize that we have 5-10 million people who legitimately cannot afford health insurance? Don’t they realize that their profits | Read More »
Left Wing Reporter Can Barely Muster A Credible Defense of Ezekiel Emanuel
Michael Scherer is Time Magazine’s White House Correspondent. Prior to working for Time Magazine, Michael Scherer wrote for a host of left-wing publications including Salon, the Nation, and Mother Jones.It should be no surprise that Time put an Obama fan in the White House to serve as an Obama apologist. And it should be no surprise that Scherer would try to apologize for Ezekiel Emanuel, | Read More »
Congress Then and Now
As the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. When we look at some of the folks populating Congress today, we can take some small comfort in the fact that today’s bunch is likely neither better nor worse than past Congresses. I give you this assessment of Congress, taken from an editorial entitled ‘Total War Postponed’ in the July 4, | Read More »
Time Gets Taken By Fake McCain Adviser Unmasked Months Ago
Recently I have been messing around with Twitter, the social media site of the day (shameless plug: see me as warnerthuston on Twitter). So, checking out some of the Old Media to see what they were saying about Twitter, I ran across Time Magazine’s attempt to seem cool with the Twitterers, er Twitterists, er Twits, er whatever they are called. Time was following some “Tweets | Read More »
Does Time Mag Think Politics is Unnatural?
Apparently, Time Magazine doesn’t think that politics is a proper subject for social-networking sites such as FaceBook. In fact, one almost gets the feeling that Time thinks the Internet would be wholly free of passion and even vitriol were it not for politics making its evil presence known in cyberspace. And whose fault is all this vitriol? Why it’s the Jews, of course. At the | Read More »
RE: Persons of the Year
The LA Times’ Andrew Malcolm seems a bit perturbed that Sarah Palin apprently stole a TIME magazine Person of the Year runner-up award from former Vice President Al Gore. In his post on the Times’ Top of the Ticket blog today, Malcom’s lede is: Completely ignoring Al Gore because he’d already won the world’s other top two prizes — the Nobel and Oscar — and | Read More »
Karen Tumulty Sees Racist People
John McCain is the second coming of the Ku Klux Klan according to Karen Tumulty, Time Magazine’s political correspondent. Why? Because John McCain has put out an ad showing Barack Obama’s ties to Franklin Raines of Fannie Mae. Raines is black. Obama is black. Therefore John McCain is a dirty racist. Seriously. See it for yourself. Now, she says that if McCain wasn’t a racist, | Read More »
Obama on Time’s Cover AGAIN!
Via Drudge we get the recognition that Time Magazine has once again placed the Obamessiah on its cover. This makes the 7th time in the space of a year that Obama has graced the cover of Time Magazine. Thus far, McCain has found the favor of the front cover precisely two times. In the tank much? Naahhh! Can’t be. It MUST be just a coinkiedink. | Read More »
Another Time Mag. McCain Computer Smear
I thought this whole McCain as Computer illiterate meme had finally faded, but Time Magazine comes to the rescue of this pointless attack once again. The last time we saw this attack it was by the chief geek over at PCmag.com, Lance Ulanoff. This time it is Lev Grossman from Time Magazine in one titled “The Off-Line American.” Painting McCain as “behind the times” and | Read More »
