Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on November 10, 2013 by Allahpundit

Bad news and worse news for tea partiers. The bad news: It’s nearly wall-to-wall Christiepalooza on the Sunday shows this morning, with the GOP establishment’s newly crowned champion tapped as the featured guest on “Meet the Press,” “This Week,” “Face the Nation,” and “Fox News Sunday.” (In fact, he’s the only guest scheduled for FNS.) If you didn’t get enough rhetoric this week about Washington being broken, compromising with Democrats to “get things done,” and showing up in minority communities long before election day to win their votes, today’s your lucky day. It’s worth watching Wallace interview him on FNS if for no other reason than that there’ll probably be a question about Rand Paul’s latest dig at him. Time for this feud to move back to the front burner.

The worse news: “State of the Union,” the only show among the big five on which Christie won’t appear, will feature … Lindsey Graham instead. The full line-up is at Politico.

Looks like another slate worthy of me watching Walking Dead re-runs instead.

Obamacare is cascading into a national calamity, and these msm elites are playing self absorbed gains. By the way, if Christie is serious, crucifying the left and Obamacare should be his number one topic.

Arkansas voted for Clinton knowing his reelection meant he would seek higher office. It was the only way they could get rid of him. Oh, and he was “popular” too.

Something that Christie has never done, and will never do – the left is Christie’s base.

In a sane world, the people would have tired of this dog and pony show and exact a punishment on big Media for continually trying to manipulating them into doing their bidding.

But a sane world is predicated on the proposition that the people are moral.

Cleombrotus on November 10, 2013 at 8:28 AM

and showing up in minority communities long before election day to win their votes

Well that does make sense…..but compromise? I know where that gets us in DC. We have a 17 Trillion dollar debt and a “victory” with our 700 billion dollar deficit.

Attn: Out-of-touch pro-amnesty Republicans and bloggers of HotAir!

Americans still strongly oppose illegal alien amnesty:
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/11/08/Pew-Poll-60-Oppose-Obama-on-Immigration-Reform

Breitbart’s invaluable Tony Lee once again covering news faster than HotAir.

60% of Americans oppose Obama’s push for amnesty.

Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker and Paul Ryan also support amnesty. They are no-gos!!

So help me, our nominee will NOT be one of those amnesty supporters.

Ted Cruz is right in line with Americans on this.

When the voting public is asked if they favor mass illegal alien amnesty, they are clear in their opposition to it.

bluegill on November 10, 2013 at 8:33 AM

This was a bad week for Democrats. I might tune in and watch the trolls in the media. At least Fox News Sunday.

Larry Kudlow defended Chris Christie on his show last night. I’m keeping an open mind, for now.

22044 on November 10, 2013 at 8:34 AM

The only thing worse than this lineup is knowing Ed is on vacation so we don’t get his picks this week. Falcons for the upset!

That’s a bummer. Ed would probably enjoy writing that blog post since it’s about the NFL and not Washington, but he probably won’t check in for that.

I’m not Christie’s biggest fan but I wouldn’t rule out voting for him if he somehow because the nominee. That being said, that is a TERRIBLE podium. Yes, we get that you like Springsteen, Governor. That doesn’t mean you have to use the same postcard font on the podium. A banner, a poster but not a podium. Not a good PR move for gravitas’s sake.

Allah is really enjoying this…he’s twisted

workingclass artist on November 10, 2013 at 9:04 AM

In the meanwhile, let’s dissect it.

Washington [is] broken

Last heard ad nauseum during the Rubio/Ryan flip-flop to amnesty. Remember, boys and girls — when the Senate is controlled by Dems and RINOs, the White House by a kook lefty, and you elect a bunch of fire-breathing conservatives in the House to stymie their kleptocracy, it means “Washington is broken”, and THANK OUR GOD for that.

compromising with Democrats to “get things done”

See above, i.e., “getting things done!” We don’t want things done; we want them undone. The very function of congress has been to figure out how to confiscate and spend tax money faster and more recklessly. This is “getting things done”. Conservative presidential candidates have been talking since 1964 about shutting down entire worthless government agencies. This would be “getting thigs done”.

showing up in minority communities long before election day to win their votes

For those who are Big Proponents of this, please show me how it works. Use math, if necessary. How does a candidate who is campaigning on a pro-economic growth platform not get credit for working with “minority communities”? Contrast that with charlatans like Obama, who shelves his native Hawaiian/Kenyan dialect and suddenly becomes a Chicago ghetto/Baptist revival carny – promising shiny objects for the oppressed and helpless before driving unemployment among blacks to Depression-era levels. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, Barack Hussein Klansman.

Jaibones on November 10, 2013 at 9:08 AM

bluegill on November 10, 2013 at 9:02 AM

I’m not talking about his writing skill, necessarily. I’m talking about his perfect clarity in espousing the conservative viewpoint. You seriously thinking “a talented writer” can just pick that out of thin air? He knows you, Dudess. He feels you.

Show a little props.

Jaibones on November 10, 2013 at 9:11 AM

Back to specifics — anyone, show me Fat Boy working in the “minority community” outside of an active election campaign. He abdicated this pissfarm known as Newark to a fellow elitist charlatan who now occupies a seat in the most powerful private club in the world, while people bleed and die in Newark.

Hooray! Let’s vote for the fat white guy because he … what? Did what? Cried about his millionaire supporters’ oceanfront summer homes? Hugged another worthless, lying charlatan while they pretended to give a crap?

David Blue on November 10, 2013 at 9:24 AM

Christie can’t even control his weight – those 99.9 pounds of fat recently removed by Liposuction are even back – so it’s doubtful he can control the White House. Democrats and elite GOP are pushing for him in order to help Hillary win. Collapse and then pruning looks to be only solution now…

ExpressoBold on November 10, 2013 at 9:29 AM

Stepped out of character there for a moment. Pardon me.

Back to our weekly role providing the Media Bias Scorecard for our pathetic Liberal/DNC Network News Propaganda Machine — let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• Kook-fringe lefty (see 1971)
• RINO
• Kook-fringe lefty
• RINO
• Kook-fringe lefty (anyone noticing a pattern, here?)
• Media/liberal propagandist
• Host – Media/liberal propagandist

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• RINO
• Generic liberal Dem
• Host – Media/liberal propagandist

“This Week” on ABC
• RINO
• Conservative — First of the day!
• Kook-fringe lefty (with race-victim emphasis)
• Media/liberal propagandist
• Host – Media/liberal propagandist

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• RINO
• Host – Media Dem Journalist

“State of the Union” on CNN
• RINO
• Kook-fringe lefty
• GOP
• Retired GOP
• Host – Media/liberal propagandist

“Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV
• GOP
• GOP
• Host – Media/liberal propagandist

“Al Punto” on Univision
• Libertarian
• Liberal
• Host – Media/liberal propagandist

Final Score: One of the worst weeks on record for airing conservative viewpoints. Over seven political shows, exactly one serious conservative, Rick Perry, along with a legion espousing kook-fringe-left viewpoints that didn’t even exist in 1960, and a host of Republican apologists who are in open political war with the conservatives in the GOP.

A new low for the Liberal/DNC Network News Propaganda Machine.

“Bad news and worse news for tea partiers…”

Allah is really enjoying this…he’s twisted

workingclass artist on November 10, 2013 at 9:04 AM

I don’t really get this constant beating down of the Tea Party.

From my new heroine:

“…The TEA Party is about fiscal responsibility, aka fiscal conservatism in government. They are not a formal “party,” but a grassroots movement of INDEPENDENT INDIVIDUALS who want to rein in the tax and spend “leaders” on both sides of the aisle.

It’s the leftists and the media who are characterizing the TP as “extremists.” They are anything BUT extreme. They are logical, sane, and realistic. Their platform is exactly what this country needs to turn it around.

It’s the RINOs who keep preaching “Dem Lite” who think they can walk all over the TEA Party fiscal cons and still get their votes.

Well, guess what? The TEA Party conservatives are fed up with the “mainstream GOP” telling us what to do, and them NOT ADHERING TO THE PARTY PLATFORM. You are the enemy of this country, just as the democrats are.

Dismiss us at your own peril. You cannot win WITHOUT US.”

JannyMae on November 9, 2013 at 1:13 AM

Despite the MSM meme Christie isn’t bashing the TEA partiers.

“There are elements of the tea party that are Republicans at their best.”

Tea partiers, he noted, favor limited government and individual liberty and freedom. They are tough on government spending and question the need for raising taxes.

“The core of the tea party movement, as I understand it, I think is consistent with good Republican conservatism,” Christie said.

Whether Christie runs for president or not, it’s up to us to work hard to get the best candidate for our party. If the base feels like a candidate is, again, being shoved down our throats, it just won’t turn out again or it will go third party. Christie isn’t the problem, the GOPe is.

“Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”

I think the liberals would love to see Christie as the Republican nominee, because he will be easy to destroy in the general. All the ethics concerns that Romney’s investigation uncovered will cut back on his appeal to the middle, and the base won’t like him anyway.

mbs on November 10, 2013 at 10:48 AM

I’m watching the Fox Panel now.

Juan is very concerned that young people who don’t use health care services are freeloaders.

Fine, then why didn’t Dems propose a financial responsibility law requiring citizens to carry a high-deductible, low-premium catastrophic-coverage policy?

Answer: The Dems want to be able to overcharge bullet-proof rich people, less affluent people, and a good bit of the middle class to redistribute wealth in the form of “healthcare” to others, a good number of whom in include society’s real freeloaders–those who are content to live and whine around the poverty level and blame others for their circumstances.

I’m all for finding a solution for the uninsurable. But Obamacare isn’t it.

Hillary with a filibuster proof Republican Congress. Hmmmmmm, I bet we would see more cooperation than we have in five years.

I think the liberals would love to see Christie as the Republican nominee, because he will be easy to destroy in the general. All the ethics concerns that Romney’s investigation uncovered will cut back on his appeal to the middle, and the base won’t like him anyway.

Yep, the Johnny Mac plan all over again.

slickwillie2001 on November 10, 2013 at 11:46 AM

I’ve quit watching the Sunday morning propaganda shows…was Johnny Mc or Peter King showcased anywhere..?

It’s nearly wall-to-wall coverage of Christie on Hot Air, thanks to Allahpundit. Just my perception, but he seems giddy with the statement “Bad news and worse news for tea partiers.”

Showcasing Christie, dumping on Paul and Cruz. I think Hot Air followed this pattern last presidential election cycle. Showcase Romney and dump on the conservatives like Palin, Perry, Bachman, and Cain, etc.

Is it Hot Air’s goal to start wars between conservatives, creating a wide range of conservative contenders vying for a piece of the electorate and thus leaving the moderate to walk away with the nomination?

If Chrisitie is nominated, then I guess I’m going to vote 3rd party. I will not support a candidate that is against the 2nd amendment and is for open borders. His “pro-life” stance doesn’t matter to me. After the primaries, it will probably evolve anyways.

One of the worst weeks on record for airing conservative viewpoints.

I feel the same way about this comment as I did when Sergio Garcia complained several years ago that all the golf media did was write stories on Tiger.

Hey Sergio…win any majors lately (er, ever)?

Hey, “true conservatives”…win any elections lately (outside of Alabama and Wyoming)?

As Saul Bellow (was supposed to have) said, “When the Zulus produce a Tolstoy, we will read him.”

And when a “true conservative” becomes governor of New Jersey (or even Virginia), we will put him wall-to-wall on Sunday morning talk shows.

Media Bias Scorecard for our pathetic Liberal/DNC Network News Propaganda Machine

Haven’t told you before but I really appreciate these rundowns on the Sunday shows. It tells me I’m really not missing very much by not watching these. Saves me a lot of wasted time and keeps my blood pressure the way my doc likes it–nice and low.

theotherone on November 10, 2013 at 12:39 PM

The trolliness of the shows probably correlates positively to how bad the week was for leftists.

Interesting thought. I agree that the DNC media’s interest in RINOs is 100% limited to either intraparty warfare against conservatives, or … no, that’s it – intraparty warfare against conservatives.

Thanks, theotherone … I love to do the review as a reminder that I reserve most of my hate for the propaganda media. It’s also why I have so much respect for Chris Wallace. He is the only person I have ever witnessed who can achieve the stated ideal of performing actual objective journalism. He’s a wonder of neutrality, despite being — I have no doubt – a liberal Democrat. Far better than the late Tim Russert.

Yes, there are conservatives who have won governors races before. Christie won a governor’s race in New Jersey, I don’t see why that constitutes wall to wall coverage of him, except that the Republican Party wants to push him as the next moderate to be President. Just like they pushed McCain and Romney, who went on to win … oh, wait, they didn’t win either. As long as the Republican Party dismisses fiscal conservatives (aka tea party supporters), then they will continue to lose presidential elections.

If being a “true conservative” means that I’m part of the fringe that believes in smaller government, then I’ll wear that insult proudly! After all, the reason I became a Republican is that they were supposed to be the party of small government and fiscal sanity. If they want to become the big government party, then I am not going to feel too bad when they lose elections.

Wait till next week. There is no bottom.

rrpjr on November 10, 2013 at 10:32 AM

I know. What could I have been thinking. Truly, there is no bottom.

Did anyone watch CBS Sunday Morning. They had Paula Poundstone on defending the Affordable? Care Act. According to Paula, computers have glitches and if she can screw up her website over and over, then we should certainly be patient while the government fixes their screwed up website. Once the website is working then all is well in healthcare land.

I don’t use the “true conservative” term, but seriously, Bob?

How about 2010? Was it 63 net seats in the House, most of them “Tea Party” conservatives?

How about Ron Johnson defeating one of the most popular/leftist members of the Senate, Russ Feingold … McCain’s buddy?

Indiana voters tend to be suckers and elected a liar/pro-life Catholic Democrat (who has gone on to vote in lock step with the Berkley Dems and will lose his next election), but if Richard Mourdock was a Tea Party troll, why did he beat fossilized RINO Dick Lugar in the primary?

Stopping there…we could do this alldaylong.
