Data From Skewed Polls Portray President Obama Unfairly; Media Buys It

The realistic portrayal of the history of this century would have to exclude the punditry heard on Sunday morning television.   Twenty-first century history, just a decade and a half old, is being rewritten right before our eyes.  I never believed history would be kind to GWB, but somehow they’ve pulled this miracle right from their collective pundit posteriors. The [...]

Yeah, But Did Ronald Reagan Ignore a Downed Jet, a Mid-East Crisis and a Hurricane To Stay on Vacation?

Everyone is making fun of Joe Scarborough for being horribly wrong about Ronald Reagan’s response to the downing of a civilian airliner in 1983, but surely he wouldn’t have stuck to his schedule in the face of that disaster and a roiling crisis in the Middle East, like NOBAMA did, right? While conservative media and The [...]

Joe Scarborough Gets Schooled on Reagan’s Response To Downed Airliner In 1983

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough got schooled by his co-host Mike Brzezinski on Monday after the “Morning Joe” host tried to propagate a favorite Conservative myth. Scarborough compared President Obama’s response to Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 to Ronald Reagan’s reaction to Korean Air Flight 007, which was shot down by the Soviet Union in 1983.

… because that illegitimate Kenyan Muslim usurper is abusing his executive power to stop anti-gay discrimination! This is what tyranny looks like — that is, if you’re a homophobe: President Obama plans to sign an executive order on Monday that protects gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees from discrimination by companies that do federal government work, fulfilling [...]

White House, State Dept See Russian Link To MH17 Downing

Breaking late Friday from the NY Times: The United States government has concluded that the passenger jet felled over Ukraine was shot down by a Russian-made surface-to-air missile launched from rebel-held territory and most likely provided by Russia to pro-Moscow separatists, officials said on Friday. While American officials are still investigating the chain of events [...]

Burger-gate: Conservatives Are Going Bonkers Because Obama Ate A Hamburger

Earlier today, a Malaysia Airlines jetliner with 295 people on board was shot out of the sky by a surface-to-air missile as it cruised over a hostile region of Ukraine and the compassion pouring out of conservatives has left me teary eyed. House Speaker John Boehner said, “Many innocents were killed today. It is horrifying, [...]

White House Take On Obama’s Call To Merkel Is Hilariously Understated

Not since President George W. Bush hit German Chancellor Angela Merkel with an impromptu double-Vulcan-neck-pinch has there been such an awkward moment in U.S. relations with Germany. Things were already strained after Edward Snowden’s revelation that the U.S. monitored Merkel’s cellphone communications, but they went from bad to worse last week when two more cases [...]
