  •  Cable News is the GOP's lap dogs (0+ / 0-)

    all year all they talk about are the republicans.I barely hear much about Obama/Biden and I sure don't see pro-Obama "spinners" on their shows at the rate I saw for Bush when he ran .They basically fell over themselves trying to get on tv.If Obama gets re-elected it will be in spite of the (should be illegal) voter id laws and the aid and comfort the cable news channels will give the GOP.

    •  Chris Matthews wobbles constantly.... (0+ / 0-)

      from practically drooling on Bush's aircraft carrier codpiece to now tearing into a WSJ editor trying to defend the Ryan budget plan and asking why it isn't social engineering and economic Darwinism.

      Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.

      •  "economic Darwinism" is a euphemism (0+ / 0-)

        that is essentially meaningless.

        What we're seeing in conservatives is vicarious predators.  They eviscerate their prey just as surely as real lions and tigers, but they do it bloodlessly, relying on money to squeeze the life out of their victims. Sort of like those pythons in the Everglades.

        Instead of capital investment, they practice capital theft.

        That is, btw, the problem the Tea Party identified. They just got the mechanism wrong. The thievery isn't in the private corps; it's in the halls of Congress. Instead of managing the nation's assets, Congress has handed them over to the banks for them to collect when they leave office.

        Willard's forte = "catch 'n' cage". He's not into "catch and release."
