MSNBC has officially entered a new level of adulation and fan worship in the Age Of Obama, and my only hope is that it isn’t contagious.
To be sure, they’ve always been willing to say anything, make any kind of ridiculous comparison or analogy, in order to justify their worldview. And their snide self-righteousness has always made it that much more stomach-churning.
That’s why they’re significantly worse than an actual State Run Media, since they do all of it without being told.
They’re cultists, posing as journalists, acting as government mouthpieces.
But this is a new level, an entirely new pinnacle, even for them.

They did it:
Yes, we’re back to the Nuclear Option!, and no, we’re not discussing Iran (for once).
What is it? From Legal Insurrection:
“…The “nuclear option” refers to a move by the majority party in Senate — in this case the Democrats — to change the Senate rules to allow most executive branch and judicial nominations to be approved with a simple majority – 51 votes — rather than the 60 votes now required. Under the current rules, the minority party can block a nomination with just 41 votes, commonly called a filibuster…”

The Democrats can’t say they weren’t warned:
But that’s not how they view/spin it.
No, no. Years of warnings, the rise of the Tea Party, countless townhall meetings, Scott Brown’s election, the 2010 mid-terms, and even the government shutdown itself weren’t warnings, but rather “sabotage“.
And they’re serious. In Liberal/Leftist/Democrat parlance, somehow standing in the middle of the road and screaming that the bridge is out is now the moral equivalent of cutting your brake lines.

I’ve spent my entire career in Professional Sales, and long ago learned the golden rule of “Under Promise, Over Deliver”.
Because when you do the opposite, as the President did so spectacularly with his “You Can Keep Your Plan...” schtick, you merely guarantee that at some point down the road, people are going to be very, very mad at you.
Which brings us to today’s press conference.
Obama, who has railed against any and all attempts to change a single jot of what he’s repeatedly trumpeted as The Law Of The Land, is now feeling overwhelming political heat from within his own party. Thus he came out today and offered a temporary “fix” to his disastrous Obamacare legislation.
Never mind that his fix basically amounts to asking the insurance industry to switch gears in the MIDDLE OF THEIR CANCELLATIONS which OBAMACARE CREATED, in order to cover Barack’s posterior. You can also ignore how completely unrealistic and unworkable that would be, just from a logistical perspective. You can even ignore the state laws they’d have to break to do such a thing, a mere 6 weeks before the end of the year.
Just focus on the press conference itself. If you watched it, you may have initially wondered if this was actually an SNL skit. There’s no possible way that it could have been planned to be this horrible:
‘Zo has been a favorite of ours here since we saw this short clip from him many years ago. And although we’ve also linked and shared several of his subsequent videos, his latest (below) is as good as any of them.
Black conservatives like AlfonZo, as well as Dr. Ben Carson, Mia Love, Dr. Thomas Sowell, Francesca Chambers, Shelby Steele, E.W. Jackson, Herman Cain, Tim Scott, Walter E. Williams, Lieutenant Colonel Allen West and many others, have shown that embracing conservative principles is not a black/white thing: it’s an AMERICAN thing.
If you’re a God-fearing person, I’d suggest you put down anything breakable before reading further.

With high-ranking Democratic officials listening reverently in the Iowa state capitol, a liberal activist and union official on Wednesday led a prayer for increased funding for abortions, for greater access to abortions, for doctors who perform abortions, and for what she called “the blessing of choice.”

There is very little I can add to this video clip (below) without using four-letter words, but I’ll do my best.
I’m actually a little shocked that this guy is being allowed to run free by the Democrats, ’cause this level of high-handedness, belittling and raw condescension doesn’t play well with anyone, other than the most hardcore Leftists.
In his previous diatribe and throughout this interview, what Representative McDermott refused to acknowledge (as we pointed out yesterday) is Tea Party and Conservative groups were targeted due to their views and beliefs. Yet, liberal/progressive groups were not explicitly targeted by the IRS, which is probably why none were brought to testify before the Ways and Means committee.
