Video: Left suddenly decides Stephanopoulos is unacceptably partisan

posted at 2:32 pm on April 17, 2008 by Allahpundit

Ace said most of what I wanted to say. There are no major policy differences between Hillary and Obama and what few minor differences there are have already been hashed, rehashed, and re-rehashed during the 20 debates that preceded this one. Yet the Pretty Vicious Rants and Important Action Alerts continue to pile up, not because ABC did an awful job by daring to finally ask St. Barack some tough questions but because (a) it’s important for the left, as intellectuals, to believe they’re only interested in “substantive issues” — like, say, John McCain accepting John Hagee’s endorsement (but not like Obama patronizing a Hamas-friendly church for 20 years) and (b) with McCain a serious threat in November, they’re already in full “whatever maximizes our chances is good and whatever hurts them is bad” mode. Hence the grotesquely exaggerated outrage this morning at ABC and Stephanopoulos, who’s defending himself albeit tepidly. To appreciate the dishonesty of their reaction, ask yourself this: If Gibson and Stephanopoulos had spent the first 45 minutes raking Hillary over the coals about Tuzla, Whitewater, Monicagate, and whatever else they could scrounge, would there be similarly high dudgeon about the dearth of “real” issues broached? Of course not. There’d be a few “gee, rough night for Hillary” reactions, a few “good, maybe this will convince her to get out” responses, the obligatory uproar from Jeralyn Merritt, Taylor Marsh, and the rest of the left’s dwindling pro-Clinton wing, and that’d be that. It’s entirely a means-ends analysis. ABC hurt the Savior, which is, and can only be, unfair. Hence the video below, which is circulating this afternoon.

If nothing else good comes from all this, at least it’ll have opened a few eyes to left-wing media bias by putting Hillary’s supporters temporarily, and bizarrely, in the position of Republicans. Why yes, Jeralyn, Keith Olbermann is “the most shameless ridiculous hack on TV.” If Hillary wins the nomination and he jumps back face-first into the tank for her, will that still be true?

They only considered it the worst debate and Stuffy making a “fool out of himself” because Obama didn’t shine brighter than Jesus last night. They had no problem with his biases when it helped them.

amerpundit on April 17, 2008 at 2:40 PM

Long ago, I thought Stephanopoulos was as stupid and as pointless as Cokie Roberts. But in 2007, I noticed that he asked good question to the Democratic presidential candidates about Iraq. Then I noticed more good, tough questions. How Stephanopoulos has matured in his thought has deeply impressed me.

thuja on April 17, 2008 at 2:40 PM

Clinton and Obama have virtually identical policy positions. If you are to have a ‘debate’ between them, the only differences to discuss are the petty issues, her gender, and his race. This is what you get, dems, for pursuing identity politics for the past 30 years.

Just wanted to point out that Stephy and sHillary do not get along anyways. There has been countless books and articles written about Ms. Clinton’s relationship with White House staffers. She’s known to have gone off on Stephy, Dee Dee Myers, etc. etc. several times. Stephy is still probably buddybuddy with the Clenis, but with Hillary, not so much.

I followed some of your links to the leftie boards earlier and had quite a chuckle at the comments.

Quite a few were berating Hill for her “GOP talking points”.

They weren’t GOP talking points. They were Hillary talking points. Those fools still can’t refuse to believe the Clinton smear machine is a creation of a democrat.

That was the only debate worth watching this whole entirely too long political season!

Excellent jobs by both moderator. Though I’m not surprised by Gibson because he often ask good substantive questions and makes an effort to be balanced. However george surprised me. I’m not saying he leans far left or anything, but I’ve seen him softball questions to canidates before. He did a good job in both asking fair questions and in making good thoughtful follow-ups.

Either way, I’m sure I’ll be voting Mcshanesty since the dems stuck us with him.

You don’t think a question about Obama’s statement that he doesn’t wear a flag pin because it sends the wrong message… then he DOES wear the flag pin when he thinks he can score political points then he takes it right back off again isn’t an important question to ask for clarification on?

How about questions about capital gains tax knowledge and basic economic theory? Which is worse… stating you don’t know much about economic theory… or spewing technobabble claiming that you do?

MadisonConservative on April 17, 2008 at 2:58 PM

Obama could have gone up on the stage last night and done 105 minutes of armpit noises in response to Stephanopoulos and Gibson’s questions, and the True Believers would have still flooded ABC’s website with complaints over only the questions, while saying with completely straight faces that it was a masterful debate performance.

It’s the result of 40 years of Democrats coddling the left in their party in virtually all their beliefs, from liberal policy all the way up to 9/11 Truther conspiracy theories. You can believe any loopy thing you want on the left and at worst you’ll be patted on the head and pandered to by the party regulars. But thanks to their coddling of those in the throes of Bush Derangement Syndrome over the Iraq ware, they now have a mass of foaming-at-the-mouth lunatics willing to demonize everything and everyone who has ever strayed from the Orthodox position of “Bush and America are the world’s true evil”, and that includes Hillary Rodham Clinton over her vote to fund the war in the first place.

Of course, if Obama hadn’t surged, these same people would be perfectly happy to root fanatically for Hillary and still act like psychos about Republicans, since Hill, Bill and their campaign would have convinced them by now that John McCain is a smarter, eviler and crazier version of George W. Bush on steroids.

Of course not.

You don’t have to speculate. Just go back and look at what they said after the NBC debate where Russert and Williams really socked it to Hillary, particularly on the drivers’ licenses for illegals. Was there outrage then?

bnelson44 on April 17, 2008 at 3:13 PM

I think one of the most unacknowledged things about this election is not only the messianic view Obama’s acolytes have of him, but the one he holds of himself.

Notice the dismissive tone towards Hillary (“you’re likeable enough”), his frequent assertions that he’s a “pretty good politician” or that he gives a “pretty good speech” and, most of all, his holier-than-thou attitude when faced with questions. It showed last night. Every question they threw at him he tried to dismiss as out of place, as part of some despicable “old politics”, as not even allowable in the political debate. He’s above you, you see.

Baphomet on April 17, 2008 at 3:13 PM

How Stephanopoulos has matured in his thought has deeply impressed me.

Well after all, there’s a huge difference in emotional maturity between five- and ten-year-olds.

Akzed on April 17, 2008 at 3:14 PM

Is this supposed to be an implied death threat or something?

That said, the Dems are totally right that the debate was unfair. The questions were biased similar to how the SAT questions are biased — they used code language that Obama couldn’t have understand, things like — “the tax cuts led to increased revenues.” You can’t expect the man to answer a question like that… he’s a Democratfor crying out loud. They should have asked him how his big government handouts will help “cure” people of their religion, need for guns, bigotry, and anti-trade sentiment.

On the serious note, Clinton did a good job hitting him on his PA-voters comment, but she also should have pointed out that he was pooh-poohing their anti-trade sentiment. A lot of people have let that part slide, but I think that’s one of the most damaging parts of the comment. It sustantiates the claim that his NAFTA talk is insincere, exploitive empty rhetoric not to be taken seriously. If she linked that comment to Goolsbee’s comments to Canada that would have hit him where he lived.

“*** Obama’s tough night: Last night wasn’t a good debate for Obama. Period. But it wasn’t a great debate for Clinton either. Of course, that may not matter to her campaign — in a two-way debate, it’s not about which candidate narrowly wins, but which candidate gets pummeled in the post-debate reviews. And Obama is getting pummeled because, well, he did get pummeled, a bit by Clinton and a little bit by the moderators. In the first 40 minutes of the debate, most of the questions were focused on Obama’s negatives (except for a lone Bosnia-sniper question to Clinton, with no follow up) and that’s what helped create what was a near disastrous performance for the front-runner. Obama was weak in a lot of his answers on his personal negatives. (Did he really compare Tom Coburn to a one-time ’60s radical/terrorist?) Meanwhile, Clinton piled on, particularly (and surprisingly, actually) on Bill Ayers, the former ’60s radical who has tenuous ties to Obama. We’re not sure if Clinton’s piling on ever is good for her in the long run — see her current poll standing — it created some post-debate issues for Obama. Many news organizations will feel compelled to do Ayers stories in the next few days (and they already have). While some may question the fairness and relevancy of the Ayers issue, it’s not going to be good for Obama.”

It looks like the lefties don’t watch George’s show often. He is tough on everyone on his show. The libs can’t take the heat, get out of the election.

Exactly. I thought the moderators were pretty easy on Obama, compared to what they could have done. The NAFTA/Canada lie could bring him down, but no one’s talking about it. Maybe they’re saving it for next week, after PA, going into IN and NC.

jaime on April 17, 2008 at 4:21 PM

Unbelievable….but then again, it isn’t. They expect Republicans to under go an anal exam from every possible angle. And yet Russert is crucified for pressing Hillary for a straight answer and they are too chicken to appear on FOX. So when two of their own hand picked moderators actually ask a difficult question then they are too partisan. You have got to be kidding me!

WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF???? Hmmmm. Maybe the American people might actually get a glimpse of the real candidate, who they are, what they stand for, how they handle themself under a tiny bit of pressure. In other words…unfiltered.

The left never ever ceases to amaze me.

Griz on April 17, 2008 at 5:14 PM

Sean Hannity has been using his radio program to ask over and over again “Why does Barack Obama have a friendly relationship with Bill Ayers? Why did he go to the home of Bill Ayers to get a political endorsement? Why does he refuse to disassociate himself with Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorne?”

It is time to answer the question Sean…

The answer is, because Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorne are something like royalty to the elite liberal Hyde Park set, to which Barack Obama so desperately wants to belong. Obama needed the support of these unreconstructed leftists in order to run for Illinois State Senate and again when he ran for the US Senate. Kissing the ring of Bill Ayers is a necessary step in gaining this support.

It is ridiculous to suggest that Barack Obama was unaware of this. Bill Ayers is famous for his association with the Weather Underground and has parlayed that association into a lucrative life as the icon of the radical elites. Absent the influence he has with these people, influence that is entirely dependent on his terrorist past, Ayers would just be another English professor and Obama would not give him the time of day.

The damaging thing about this association is that it shows that Obama seeks and receives the support of the most radical elements of society, and that these people are his political base, and will be first in line for political favors. Barack Obama is from Chicago, where political favors are akin to a Holy Obligation. Just as with Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama knew exactly who he was jumping into bed with, and it is dishonest in the extreme to pretend otherwise now.

He did not care then, and he does not care now, because his is an elitist. He accepts the radicalism of his associates because he is “down for the struggle”, but he thinks the mass of Americans are just too stupid, too bitter, or too blinded by the things to which they cling to understand and accept his radical friends. So he lies about knowing them, and expects us to take his word for it.

Sean has done an excellent job framing the question. Now it is time to give the answer, and in giving it, reinforce the accurate perception that Barack Obama is a radical elitist, and hopelessly out of touch with ordinary Americans.
