Dear Lame-Stream Media types, I’d like to have a discussion about your sense of fair play……you have none!
Dana Millbank of the Washington Post is a prime example. His Sept. 22nd column was incredibly irritating to anyone who expects an even handed approach.
Millbank spent two columns worth of his disdain for the 47% issue Mitt Romney is currently being pilloried for.
CONTEXT, Dana, CONTEXT!
Mitt Romney was at a fundraiser and was discussing campaign strategy. The 47% will likely never vote for him, not realistic to spend campaign time or treasure on that group, and I’d like to point out Gov. Romney did NOT use the word “Moocher” but every single lame-streamer made sure to include it in their analysis.
Context is so-o-o important that all the lame-streamers had their knickers in knots for days after Barack Obama made clear that “YOU didn’t build THAT“. It was SO important for all us slackers to understand the CONTEXT. After all everyone KNEW the President was talking about the roads and bridges….well, I’m still not convinced, but anyway.
Apparently Millbank didn’t watch the Republican Convention. A number of ordinary people testified to the very personal attention Gov. Romney gave them when they or their families needed help. These kindnesses were extended far away from cameras or reporters and are part of Romney’s personality….very Presidential in my opinion.
I would challenge Millbank to find similar (true, not manufactured) stories involving the Obamas and the Bidens.
Tax returns provided by the Romneys’ demonstrate that they walk the talk, consistently giving upwards of 30% of their income to charity. Personally, I was incredibly offended in 2008 to learn of the paltry, almost non-existent charitable donations made by Obama and Biden. As a percentage of income, I actually gave far more to charity than either of them. So upon hearing this I decided right then to contribute only to political campaigns until they were out of office, something I had never done before.
The hypocrisy of this administration and the media who are carrying their water for them are beneath contempt and encourage me every day to work as hard as possible to replace Obama/Biden and just IGNORE the “lame-streamers”.
