President Obama met with a litany of liberal media personalities on Tuesday to push his tax cut message.
Spotted filing into the West Wing were Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton.
The meeting was not on the president’s public schedule and White House officials initially declined to comment on the meeting. They later issued a statement to POLITICO:
“This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction,” spokesman Josh Earnest said.
The Obama administration conducts regular briefings of reporters from different media markets, but this did not immediately appear like such a briefing. According to White House visitor records, O’Donnell, for example, has not attended such briefings before.
A Tale of One Recall, with Two Views: “A Bad Night for this Liberal Broadcaster” to “THIS IS What DEMOCRACY Looks Like!”

From the mouth of MSNBC’s whiner Ed Schultz:
Following the Democratic loss in the Wisconsin recall election on Tuesday night, MSNBC’s ”The Ed Show” host Ed Schultz told viewers, “This is not going to be an easy night for many broadcasters who are liberal.”
At the top of his special 11 p.m. post-Wisconsin recall episode, the liberal host known for his over-the-top behavior added, “This is not going to be an easy night for this broadcaster,” putting the blame squarely on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision.
“This is not going to be an easy night for many broadcasters who are liberal,” Schultz said. “This is not going to be an easy night for this broadcaster. To say that I’m shocked and stunned is pretty much an understatement. But I also think — that as a real warning to Americans — that money is now infiltrated into our political system like we have never seen before. And the ruling by Citizens United is now a real message to every American. It is going to take an insurmountable amount of effort on the ground for the progressive movement and the Democrats to do what they need to do in 2012. And this is also a real message to local politics, that this money will filter down and Citizen United will affect federal and state elections over time.”
To the voice of the Wisconsin Lt. Governor:
Why is The Media Embracing “Occupy Wall Street” as Newsworthy, When they were so “Dismissive” of the Tea Party Movement

Last night, Ed Schultz from MSNBC commented that the “Occupy Wall Street” phenomenon is true grassroots, a true example of Democracy in action, and then went on to highlight the Tea Party movement as corporate driven, sponsored by FOXNews.
The question is, with the unions financing the “Occupy Wall Street” protests, why is this protest newsworthy, while the Tea Party marches on DC and other places were dismissed as nothing?
from America’s Right:
“[He's] in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. [In] the last 30 years the Republican party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race-baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more,” Garofalo said.
“But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like ‘I love that, that can’t be racist. He’s a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.’ Or ‘it’s a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It’s a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.’
Garofalo also had some conspiracy theories as to who may be putting Cain up to this.
“And I feel like wouldn’t that suit the purposes of whomever astroturfs these things. Whether that be the Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove. ‘Let’s get Herman Cain involved so it deflects the obvious racism of our Republican party,’” Garofalo said.
And, frankly, as bad as that is, a few days ago we saw an even more egregious–not to mention malicious–example of a hard-line lefty injecting race into a debate where it did not previously exist, and imputing racist remarks upon someone who said no such thing:

Refusing to give MSNBC’s Ed Schultz any ratings at all, I catch his show when it replays later in the evening.
On his radio show earlier this week, the obnoxious pundit used a vile term when referring to conservative pundit Laura Ingraham. For her part, Ms. Ingraham basically brushed the comment off, stating that she would add a line or so to her upcoming book about the mysoginistic commentator.
Yesterday, Schultz privately reached out to Ingraham to apologized, noting that he left her a message and would again try to speak with her personally. He then met with the management of MSNBC/NBC, and was apologetic for his actions, and the manner in which they reflect upon the network as a whole. Realizing he is not one who has avoided controversy, in his on-air apology, Schultz noted that he had truly crossed a line that was wrong, and accepted responsibility for his actions. His apology was extended to his wife, children and grandchildren as well. In fact, Schultz mentioned his wife more than once in his apology, so one has to believe that she was shocked at his comment on-air.
For his part, it seems that this might be one of those more sincere statements.
For article and videos:
Note: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who is very derogatory about Sarah Palin and even moreso about Michele Bachmann must have received the “word from the powers that be”, and he stated that he would try to be a little kinder in his coverage of Rep. Bachmann!

As Keith Olbermann ended his show tonight, he thanked his staff and crew, and stated that this was his last night, his last show.
MSNBC immediately made a statement that the contract between the two parties was “ended”, and they wished Olbermann luck in his future endeavors. When the Olbermann show was tossed off to the Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel’s guest host went right into the storyline, with no acknowledgement toward Rachel’s mentor whatsoever. (Corrected)
This was obviously NOT a planned departure, and by all apearances, occurred within the past few hours, catching even Ms. Maddow off guard.
Olbermann’s show was simply intolerable, but let’s hope they do not put ED SCHULTZ into that time slot!

10-2 “One Nation” Rally Did not Leave the National Mall in the Same Manner that the 8-28 “Restoring Honor” Did:

After the 8-28 “Restoring Honor” Rally, the area at the National Mall was left nearly spotless, and many drew comparisons to the mountains of garbage left behind after the Inauguration of Barack Obama.
Today, the liberal base of the Democrats, including SEIU, NEA, AFL-CIO, The Socialist Party, the Young Communists, and others, gathered for their answer to Restoring Honor—- 10-2 One Nation.
Based on what they left behind, we can see what “honor” these groups have for our Great Country:
Rev. Sharpton and Ed Schultz should be embarrassed!
