Just keep saying it long enough, and the MSM really won’t be biased…right?
I don’t think so.
Isn’t it great when all the talking heads come out saying almost the exact same thing as the POTUS? Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters has this video…
It’s just a coincidence? Yeah, and I have some magic beans to sell you.
As for the claim itself, it reminded me of the recent “let’s reform Jimmy Carter’s image by saying he was productive.” effort. Sadly, for this Congress, no amount of lying will repair their image. Let’s take a quick look at their “accomplishments:”
The Porkulus: Spend nearly a trillion dollars on turtle tunnels, among other things, and watch unemployment go up!
Majorities: Have unbeatable majorities in both houses, and spend most of a year working on ObamaCare. In the meantime, you don’t pass other major initiatives, like Cap and Trade and Card Check.
ObamaCare: Speaking of ObamaCare, you pass a 2000+ page law, get surprised by what is in it, and then watch in horror as everything that Conservatives (and especially Sarah Palin) said about it come to pass.
Tea Parties: When there a popular movement forms against you. Insult them, because that always works. Come to think of it, call them racists too. That helps!
Electoral Bloodbath: The people go to the polls in November, and vote you out in record numbers. When faced with this, the acceptable course of action is to try to get as much of your agenda passed with what little time you have left. It also apparently helps to insult the voters, and have a lot parties to celebrate your ‘accomplishments.”
I could go on, but I think you get the point. This Congress was a train wreck. No only did they fail to get many of their major initiatives passed, the ones they did have already failed to perform as advertised, or they have been ineffective at meeting their objectives.
In the end, this is another nail in the coffin that is the MSM’s credibility, as if they had any left. Defending this turkey is like being a character witness for Charles Manson. No matter how many times you say it, no one is going to believe you.
