    Wolf Blitzer is a dumb ass…..

    ” Nasa says there is significant damage to property and vehicles. I assume they mean ” on the ground “. He was talking to Miles O’Brien

    Duh

    Evening, TOD! Had a happy and exhausting day chaperoning a field trip and am home and catching up on all the goings on. I’ll have to look for video of POTUS with Burke. Bet that was a good event.

    So I see that CNN has now trotted out (what they think is) their biggest weapon – Jay Carney to preach doom and gloom for Dems. How much did they pay him?

      Was also very disappointed to see Martin O’Malley criticize PBO in the report today. Thought he was one who wouldn’t.

          Well, if he didn’t say any of this, he should sue the NYT for falsely quoting him.

            I can’t read the article – it’s behind a paywall, so could you copy and paste the part where they cited him? Thanks.

            • October 28, 2014 at 7:34 pm

              Here it is Hopefruit, I’m really surprised – and disappointed:

              In an interview in his 23rd-floor office overlooking Baltimore, when asked about Mrs. Clinton’s remarks that tens of thousands of minors who crossed the southern border illegally “should be sent home,” Mr. O’Malley said, “I wasn’t really focused on her or what she was saying.” He instead criticized Mr. Obama for sending minors to “summary return to the death squads from which they fled.”

              When asked how his brand of leadership differed from Mrs. Clinton’s, he said, “My mind is not even in the compare-contrast mode,” but suggested that Mr. Obama had failed to build the Democratic Party. “For my part, I found you have to make your party strong,” he said, taking issue with those “who would like to believe that we are in a post-partisan era.”

              And he echoed Mrs. Clinton’s critique of the president in suggesting that Mr. Obama had allowed the problem of the Islamic State to fester. “It is at great risk to our national interest and national security to ever become disengaged from the broader world,” he said, adding, “Very often messes get worse the longer they go unattended.”

                I have a strong suspicion that this is being reported out of context – the way the reporter intersperses his own words with O’Malley’s is a clue. I would have liked to see the actual interview. Note that the reporter simply fills in his own words, and then cites O’Malley’s words to make it seem as though he’s speaking in the context the reporter wants us to think.

                Note that all of these are the reporter’s words”

                1. “He instead criticized Mr. Obama for sending minors to…”

                2. “but suggested that Mr. Obama had failed to build the Democratic Part…”

                3. “And he echoed Mrs. Clinton’s critique of the president in suggesting that Mr. Obama had allowed the problem of the Islamic State to fester.”

                If you notice, in every instance when “Mr Obama” was mentioned, it was the reporter, and not O’Malley saying it. This is a trick that journalists use when they want to create an impression….we would be wise to be careful about what we take from this interview.

            just read through that. the writer jason horowitz not once referred to our president as “President Obama” from the first mention of him to the last. Likewise, SENATOR elizabeth warren never has a “Sen.” or “Senator” in front of her name. this is the new york times we’re talking about, and i know they have writing standards, so why are those abandoned just on this article? i have my guesses…

            i don’t trust this writer at all to not have taken o’malley out of context for his divide and conquer democrats tactics. notice the tactic even works here in the comments whenever they trot it out. i should read it again and see if the writer also uses their favorite “democrat party” trick.

            having said that, SENATOR elizabeth warren is my first pick still, and o’malley second. she’s also been victim of this same trick by these “reporters” where they overblow the smallest thing she might say as a negative about the president, and so many, even here immediately jump on her as untrustworthy. people have GOT TO STOP falling for this game!!! the “news” owners and their paid propagandists often referred to as “reporters” are toying with you!! don’t let them anymore.

              Same here. The writer has an agenda, and he clearly took O’Malley’s words out of context and used them to create his own bullshit narrative about “Mr. Obama.”

            I read the article this morning and was super-pissed at Jason Horowitz — who went from the NY Observer to WaPo Style section to gossip-central @nytimes.

            @GovernorOMalley’s words were framed by Horowitz and @nytimes wrote the headline referencing Clinton.

            From the article:

            “Instead, Mr. O’Malley contrasts himself with a safer target: the embattled president of the United States.” (all Horowitz here, not O’Malley)

            and

            “instead criticized Mr. Obama” — which follows a sentence about HRC — it makes no sense, and would wager that it’s taken out of context.

            and…

            “but suggested that Mr. Obama had failed to build the Democratic Party.” (suggested by Horowitz, not O’Malley)

            Horowitz plucked quotes by O’Malley and added his views of what was actually said.

            I hope O’Malley ignores that gossip-monger Horowitz and continues to focus on Nov 4.

        Hi dotster3, what did Gov O’Malley say?

          October 28, 2014 at 7:21 pm

          See link above. I’m sad about it because I like O’Malley a lot. I expected something better from him.

          • October 28, 2014 at 10:34 pm

            I do not believe this article. Tried reading the posted excerpts from my phone. The bits I got, sound like the writer cherry picked to suit his narrative. Seems to me that Gov Martin is posing a threat to those who want to be the anointed one for 2016. Great learning experience for Gov Martin going forward. Look out for those damn fools. Don’t get taken in, voters!

      i think he did a decent job as press sec, but i was not thrilled when he was originally picked for that job, mainly because i felt his reporting while at time magazine was the standard d.c. beltway talking points. i’m not that surprised that he goes right back to what he was doing before president obama brought him in-house. the little bits of time i’ve seen josh earnest though, i must say he’s noticeably even better at being stern with the crazy questions and quick-witted, so not a bad trade there. jon favreau (the speechwriter) has also been a great advocate for the president since leaving the white house.

    Yes, Jay Carney’s remarks are a blow.
    But, if I read them correctly he said Dems would lose seats in the Senate–which may be true, not that we will lose the Senate. Big Big difference

    Still, it feels like a betrayal. Another one. Very hard not to feel bad. Loyalty seems to be a thing of the past. If you are a Walking Dead fan a nation’s ethic moving towards a philosophy of “you are the butcher or the cattle” seems to apply for more than one hour on Sunday on AMC.

    “Opponents say factory expansion could help Georgia governor’s friends”

    ——-

    When Gov. Nathan Deal announced that a major manufacturer would expand in Hall County, nobody mentioned that it would happen on land connected to his campaign chairman and other backers.

    Deal announced Monday that Kubota, a leading manufacturer of small tractors, lawn mowers and recreational vehicles, would expand in his home county…Kubota is expected to pay the local development authority about $5.67 million for the land…the partnership of owners that transferred the land to the authority includes Philip Wilheit, the governor’s campaign chairman. The CEO of the limited partnership involved was Jim Walters, a longtime supporter.

        He knows to go where he will be of help. He is a realist. He is not going to stump for a Democrat he knows would not benefit. Why should he be forced to go where he’s not really welcome? He’s had enough heckling and backbiting in his terms. I say, let him be, folks,(by that I mean reporters and MSM pundits) and enjoy these last two years. Stop the Monday morning quarterbacking.

        I think he and Michelle will be ready to quit the political scene in two years. I am looking forward to what they will be doing after 2017. First, I hope they have a good, long rest, away from prying eyes and nastiness. I know they will be involved in productive activities…..perhaps helping to build responsible citizens….which seems to be one of his passions. Then, of course, working on his library. Should be exciting to watch. His reputation will grow and grow after 2017.

      Oh please is anyone beside me tired of the media pushing this same old bull crap. Before the media were complaining cause Dems weren’t asking POTUS to campaign, now that he is campaigning, they are trying to make a big deal out of him only campaigning in places where people like him.

      This is a very passive-aggressive tweet. And it has racist undertones as well.

      By the way every politician has campaigned where people really really like them. This is not specific to PBO.

      No. It hasn’t started yet. PBO is probably being briefed on different things. Even while campaigning, he must remain informed on whatever is going on in the world. And a lot is happening faster these days.

    The media is so full of it. ‘Also I wouldn’t be so quick to attack Jay Carney. He is right when he says the Dems will lose some senate seats, but the dems have a chance to pick up a few. Jay has defended this administration after leaving the WH so I’m not going to crucify the guy.

    October 28, 2014 at 7:59 pm

    Jay Carney is now a paid CNN analyst. He was asked about the Dems prospective, come a week today. Now based of the polls available, he said what he said. Now, CNN had the polls…..those polls were part of his analysis. So he answered using their data. I would not be disappointed in him for that. Where I would get really upset with him is crossing the line like, I believe Gibbs did a number of times.

    JayC is not a Dem Operative. So he did his job that he was paid to do. He Never attacked POTUS nor disparaged his Team……

    JonF is not an analyst. He is paid as a Columnist. He is supposed to have an opinion. So it will be likely that his comments no matter at any venue will be to First and foremost, defend the Obama Team.

    I have heard JayC a couple of times on CNN and he did a good job explaining and articulating the his former boss’ views.
