Video: Megyn Kelly, Obama spokesman go nuclear over Fox News and the redistribution tape

posted at 6:33 pm on October 27, 2008 by Allahpundit

Time for the daily combative Kelly interview, featuring muppet-ish Obama spokestool Bill Burton in his recurring role. The beauty of this clip is how it ties the day’s two stories together in a bow. Got a question about The One’s penchant for socialist rhetoric? Then prepare to have your motives challenged and maybe your access cut off, on top of the abuse you’ll take once his vicious little cultists get involved. Just ask “extreme hate monger” David Freddoso.

She came ready to play, though, didn’t she? The polling stats flow effortlessly! Exit quotation: “You may have the rest of the media in the tank, but Fox News reports it straight.”

Is Burton “mixed race” like Obama? His hair looks a little “nappy”? Is he black? Just wondering.

Rod on October 28, 2008 at 8:23 AM

Hey, Bud. Keep your moronic racial arguments to yourself. Unlike the left, we don’t play that card in our game.

Tennman on October 28, 2008 at 8:55 AM

Burton typifies the liberal attitude: supercilious, smug, smirky. Such an attitude really is the refuge of those who feel weak and impotent, and we really should pity Burton.

As much as we’d like to smack him.

As for Megyn, well… sigh.

People will from time to time think about race. It’s ok. I suppose the reason for your harshness, Tennman, is that you are worried that Rod’s question will feed the media’s rightwingers are racist narrative. My take is that media is going to call anyone who supports McCain racist no matter we do. We might as well talk about race in harmless ways, and attack only when someone makes an actually racist statement.

Megyn destroyed this tool. The first response by Mr. Burton was to deflect the question as being some conjured up Fox News hit job. He never discusses the merits of the charge. Truly ridiculous.

FLcapitalistthug on October 28, 2008 at 9:55 AM

I really can’t believe he can say that only Fox is biased, in any way. ALL the other networks are so obviously voting for Obama, to the extent that the American people are mistakenly going to vote for a whole different type of America, run by Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Dodd and Obama. An America which they would never want if they understood what was coming. The fact that the press sheilds Obama from never having to reveal the truth is, at its very core, unpatriotic. There, I said it. The MSM is anti-American.

Why do they think the Founding Fathers “left” the Socialist mess that was England in the first place? Why would we go back to that, after all their blood, sweat and tears?

Moxie on October 28, 2008 at 9:58 AM

Megyn missed one point when Burton went into his “mortgage mess” spin (7:00-7:10). She should have hit him back with the Democratic social engineering expirement conducted at the expense of you and me.

She did great with the “I get the emails and people are worried that the tax burden will be shifted even more” comeback – which he totally ignored, of course.

Almost forgot. I hate that guy and his yuppie smirk. My cat has puked up better looking hairballs than that guy. But Chicago thuggery never is a good look for a man.

If the Obama camp keeps attacking the messengers, (like this douche blaming the tape on Fox News), shutting out media sources that ask tough questions, investigating people who question “The One”, after a while the media will lose their love for him. They may be biased and arrogant, but they do not like to be attacked or ignored.

Most here are HotAir are open minded and intelligent enough to be able to read a comment or question without inserting their own bias, prejudice, or holier-than thou attitude into it. That’s usually reserved for “those other” blogs.

However, by their reaction to my question about race, at least two have proven that they are not.

I’m not sure if it’s sign of the times or a responders character and intellect when a simple question about someones race can provoke such hostility in them.

To anyone else that I may have offend by asking what race this fellow was, my apologies. It never occurred to me that we’ve gotten to the point where asking a persons race is, in itself, a racist question that should not be asked in today’s pc world.

I won’t make that mistake again.

Rod on October 28, 2008 at 10:43 AM

Since things are kind of slow at HA right now (Ed must be busy writing), I’ll introduce something I find interesting from the American Spectator….

http://spectator.org/archives/2008/10/28/premature-presidency
________________________________________________________
Senator Barack Obama’s recurring habit of interfering in U.S. relations with foreign nations represents more than petty, cheap shot politics. It appears to be a violation of the Logan Act.

Established in 1799, the Logan Act made it a crime for any U.S. citizen to engage in activities “with any foreign government … in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States.” The act even prohibits members of Congress from acting unilaterally.

The report of Obama’s attempt last June to obstruct the negotiation of a status of forces agreement between the U.S. and Iraq is exactly the type of interference the Logan Act outlawed. According to Samir Sumaidaie, the Iraqi ambassador to the U.S., Obama “urged Iraq to delay the [memorandum of understanding] between Iraq and the United States until the new administration was in place.”
____________________________________________________________

I have always wondered why such egregious violations by politicians are NEVER prosecuted (or at least acknowledge with a censure or something).

right2bright on October 28, 2008 at 11:00 AM

I think that Mr. Burton was effective in that he was able to divert *ALL* conversation away from the actual point of the interview (more evidence of Obama’s socialist agenda). He plays it perfectly by deflecting the conversation and going on the attack to force Megyn to defend Fox as opposed to pressing him to answer any substantive questions about the 2001 tape.

I love Megyn, she is very sharp (she is a lawyer, after all, right?), comes prepared, has a backbone, and seems to be a strong interviewer, but she got played by Burton. She won the battle but lost the war.

Obama’s team will just obfuscate, distract, or play the race card whenever they are faced with a question they don’t like or won’t answer. Barb West from Orlando handled Biden perfectly; put the question out, don’t engage in rhetoric and stay on track. She never got into an argument or defended herself, she stayed focused and asked the questions succinctly without getting diverted.

Geministorm on October 28, 2008 at 11:01 AM

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth. She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father.

He responded by asking how she was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn’t even have time for a boyfriend, and didn’t really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, ‘How is your friend Audrey doing?’ She replied, ‘Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy courses, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She’s always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn’t even show up for classes because she’s too hung over.’ Her wise father asked his daughter, ‘Why don’t you go to the Dean’s office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.’

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father’s suggestion, angrily fired back, ‘That’s a crazy idea, and how would that be fair! I’ve worked really hard for my grades! I’ve invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!’

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently,

“Welcome to The Republican Party.”

Because there were representatives from the Bush administration at those meetings and they confirmed that Obama’s version of the story was correct. This was dropped as a topic awhile ago because it was a dead-end once the Bush admin came out with the info that there were a number of reps there and their stories all matched what Obama’s was.

davod on October 28, 2008 at 11:27 AM

Barack Obama says that wealth is not trickling down. Given that at least 35% of Americans pay no federal income tax, they can NOT be so hard working that they deserve to be called “middle class” needing-requiring-letting others pay their mortgage, fuel bills, food bills, transportation costs, and education because they are so hard working, they can’t/won’t pay their own way in life. So trickle up poverty. Make the middle class the lower class, the welfare population. That has done wonders over the last half century, corrupting our educational system with socialism so long that the entire population swallows the camel whole, choking on the Constitution.

Yesterday, a lady called into Sean Hannity supporting Obama with her premise that our first principle that our founding fathers fought our Revolutionary War over and that our Constitution endorses is REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH. She claimed that John Adams was a socialist.

There are more stupid people who just don’t put any effort into LEARNING AND THINKING than there are people who enjoy thinking and learning through research of original sources. Instead of research, the majority promote popular hear-say as evidence. Teach a class at a public school or community college and see for yourself. The teachers “think” that way; the students imitate their teacher as evidenced at every institution of higher education, particularly Ivy League.

Group think mob leftists vote.

YOU VOTE!

davod on October 28, 2008]

Exactly davod….and let’s not forget Obama’s “Canadian Memo” during the primaries.

http://blog.cleveland.com/openers/2008/03/presidential_primary_issues_tr.html
Clinton pounced on the memo, telling reporters in Toledo: “I don’t think people should come to Ohio and tell the people of Ohio one thing and then have your campaign tell a foreign government something else behind closed doors.”

Obama, who last week denied a Canadian television report that a senior adviser had reached out to the Canadian government to downplay Obama’s rhetoric on trade, said Monday that he had not been aware at the time that Goolsbee had accepted an invitation from the Canadians to tour the consulate in Chicago.

Obama downplayed the memo, saying Goolsbee reiterated in the meeting the same positions that Obama has spelled out on the stump, including a commitment to modify the North American Free Trade Agreement to include stronger labor and environmental standards.

He pointed reporters to a statement released Monday by the Canadian consulate general expressing regret at any inference from the memo that Obama’s public statements might differ from his private ones.

Anyone who thinks toolboy Burton had the edge on Kelly must be someone who easily falls for foolish ideas, like, um, Marxism.
Let’s get real folks-the parroting of “95% of working Americans get a tax cut under Obama” is wearing thin. Most of those people don’t pay taxes! Me included! But I don’t need a handout of someone else’s money!
For God’s sake let’s go to a flat tax system. The advantages are unreal.

Tennman

Because I was curious. Is it racist now to be curious about one’s race? Please set me straight here because, as you noted, I’m living in a vacuum.

And again, my apologies. As I noted earlier, I never dreamed there would be someone here, like yourself, that would take offence at a simple question. Living in this airless void I’m stuck in, when I venture out, I will have to get use to the fact that there are people such as you who prefer to shoot first and ask questions later.

In any case, my question stands as is: a simple question. And contrary to what you have read into my subsequent posting,(A bad habit, I know, but you’re not forgiven) I am not offended by your reference to other sites: I am offended by your small minded, quick to judge, obvious habit of reading you own bias and prejudices into other’s comments and questions. But that’s just me so don’t take offence. I’m living in a vacuum, remember?

Oh, and btw, there is “nothing clear” by asking if he is mixed race. It’s a question, not a statement. I would not have asked it if I knew. I have no idea nor do I care.

You know, as hard as it may be for you to understand this, sometimes a question is just a question. You’ll lead a happier life with less conflict when you accept that fact – especially if you’re married.

Well Rod, you can always ask what race he is, to resolve some question in your mind. I’m just pointing out that you choose you ask a question wholly irrelevant to the thread, issues, line of questioning by Megyn Kelly, or the question of whether Obama is a socialist or not.
It’s an ad hominem question, not a question about what Mr. Burton said. Just saying, wrong question in the wrong arena. Just wondering, is John McCain part Scottish, Welsh, English? See how silly that question is?

Shep said that Obama has made it very clear in word & policies that Obama is a friend to Israel, etc etc. When he couldn’t get Joe to take the bait, (Joe would say only that he wanted people to do their own research) he gave up.

Don’t try to play the innocent. I know what you were doing, and I’ll bet everyone with half a brain, like yours, knows what it is you’re saying as well.

I happen to have many, many friends of either mixed racial heritage or are Indians, Kenyans, Caucasions, African Americans, you name it. They’re just people to me. Not nappy headed anything.

Unlike some others here that are over-reacting to your comment, I will simply explain the danger of it. The right is constantly under attack by the left as being racist. The tendencies you point out yourself are an eloquent testament to this.

This article was not about race in any way. By broaching the race subject you give the left ammunition to argue that everything we discuss is tinged with racial undertones. You supply them with the club they use to beat us. I think that many here are not so pleased to be beaten by that club. So they react harshly when it is invited.

Megyn does a great job of calling out muppet-man Burton. Kelly had to spend over half the interview defending Fox against the unreasonable attacks by Burton and his attempt to make the segment about the fairness of Fox instead of the policies of Obama.

Burton was successful in the sense that he cause a very large portion of the interview to be spent talking about Fox instead of Obama. The problem for Burton is he lost that battle. He was actually more successful in arguing the case for Obama, though still not believable.

Hawthorne on October 28, 2008 at 4:37 PM

I willing stand convicted and guilty of using a word in my naivete that is obviously offensive to some. My apologies to all who I offended. It was not my intent.

I will also plead guilty of posting off topic.

And I also apologize for any mention of race in any context for fear that it may be taken out of context by the “enemy”.

However, Tenman, I refuse to apologize for any inference I’ve made as to your character. You are a shallow, self-righteous, arrogant fool which you continue to prove with your own words.

In my nearly 60 years I can say that I’m fortunate to have met few as dis-tasteful as you. You tout your friends as badges of honor. I never questioned whether you’re a bigot or racist yet for some reason you felt the need to fall back on “Some of my best friends are …”

What’s that all about? Huh?

You take a simple, naive question and turn it into something evil and then paint the questioner with your own bile. I’m sure you’d make the KOS crowd proud.

And to top it all off, you the spout the classic harpy line, “I know what you were doing …”. Considering the time of year, I bet your threw your head back and broke into an evil cackle right after you muttered the line. What? Do you see yourself as some great seer able to gaze into souls of us mere mortals? Do you demand that your friends bow down to you?

Get a life, you idiot. As I’ve already said, a question is, sometimes, just a question. Sometimes it isn’t. But that’s all we had here, inappropriate as I now agree it was. I’ve apologized. And I don’t give a rats ass whether you believe me or not. In fact I don’t think you can – it would go against your warped self-image.

In closing, heed this – or not: Don’t pile your own fetid garbage on top of other’s comments – It generally only acts as a mirror into your own sorry being.

My apologies to all, including Allah. I’m not wont for this type of off topic rant and will do my upmost to not let it happen again. And no, Tinman, I’m not responding. Enough is enough. Rant on and paint me as you wish. I don’t care.

Megn is soooooooooooooooooooo hot. Especially when she lays the smack down on the flunkies that O sends out to spin for him.

I was truly shocked that the story to him was the fact that the story was reported and not the actual words used by Empty Suit. truly did not see that one coming. NOT!

My apologies for thinking you were a young troll instead of an old phart like me. My youngest grand godson, a Punjabi/Bengali Indian, was born two days ago to a young family who’ve adopted us as their American grandparents. So, sorry fo being touchy, but it’s on my mind.

MK was correct to talk over Burton rather than allow him to change the interview into a political infomercial. If she hadn’t gotten in his face and talked over him, he would have taken over the interview. She did the best that could be done to bring him back to the subject of Obama’s Marxist reflexes. Clearly, he was never going to address that question in any way other than to pretend it was a Fox fabrication. She did well to spend as much time on the main subject as she did, and getting in the emails from viewers was effective. Burton did his job and recited the party line, but he didn’t own MK, he merely survived.

Y’all realize this is the Left’s plan to marginalize conservatives? Comments by Obama and his surrogates about Fox News, and Hannity in particular, are just the lead up to the Fairness Doctrine. It’s in their talking points – demonize Fox News as being the tip of the spear of conservative talk (yes, Fox leans right, but nowhere near as far as CNN and MSNBC lean left), then bring down the hammer on talk radio. It’s all in the interest of fairness facism, of course.
Expect the “Fox” talking points to continue….

I think his smirking is getting to her.

Muppetish is an apt description. Put a hat on that guy and he reminds me of Fozzie Bear.

When the left cannot defend their chosen point of view all they can do is attack again and again with RED (star) herrings, and when that tactic does not work they resort to the ‘R’ Racist and ‘N’ word.

The left are taught to use the ‘N’ word and ‘R’ words when they are loosing a conversation with rational people. They are taught using the ‘R’ and ‘N’ words switches the issue from discussion to derision (throwing a hissy fit blaming others to overcome their ineptness) to evoke vice invoke a positive result.
