Filed under: General — Patterico @ 4:29 pm



Damn straight. Great statement, and well said:

Democrats really screwed up here.

UPDATE: Sometimes you want to listen to someone who’s really angry. This is one of those times:

  1. yep the tide seems to have taken a decisive turn

    it’s startling to realize that the Team R lawsuit against Obama was greeted with remarkably *less* derision and, indeed, received with far more seriousness, greeted with far more sober discussion

    strange times

  2. It is impossible for the Democrats to screw up. They have the LA Times in their back pocket.

    The White House is obviously trying yet another avenue to get the President impeached.

  4. the story can’t go bad: if teh narrative is in trouble, the MFM will simply stop covering the story.

  5. seems like the narrative this feeds is that the obamafascists are desperate

    killing the story only feeds into that narrative really

    it’s kind of sad cause we needed the fascists to challenge the fetid boehnerstagnant Rs

  6. NO ONE does gut-ripping anger quite as well as The Great One, at least on the radio.

  7. You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I to
    find this topic to be really something which I feel I would by
    no means understand. It seems too complex and very wide for me.
    I’m looking forward in your subsequent submit, I will
    try to get the cling of it!

  8. One interesting fact: I think most phony indictments allege facts that are not true. Here it is the law that is misrepresented.

    Is there something making the following approach by Rick Perry difficult?

    Why would he not move to get the indictment dismissed because it fails to state a crime?

  9. I have not gone through the comments here in the other thread. Forgive me if it was brought up…

    New York’s Gov. Cuomo is in really hot water for interfering w/an ethics panel. The Rick Perry indictment might be a way to balance the political reporting on the Cuomo situation. Reporters will be forced to lump Perry into any future stories about Cuomo. “But of course both sides seem to be playing hardball…”

  10. So, ukuleledave, Axelrod, et al getting out ahead with their declarations might be due to some strategy to say Cuomo was acting in the scope off his duties , or to help along some created feeling that cuomos situation rests on similar flimsy political hit accusations?

    I had assumed a cynical appraisal of the potential backlash was behind the notable leftist skepticism and scolding reg. the indictment.

    I guess one should beware.

  11. Ukeleledave – there is no doubt they will attempt to draw parallels. And it is extraordinary how much more this is being covered than the Dem Gov actually attempting to subvert an investigation into actual corruption.

  15. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My
    site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced
    but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    internet without my agreement. Do you know any
    methods to help prevent content from being ripped
    off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  16. What i do not understood is if truth be told how you’re now not actually much more smartly-favored than you may be
    right now. You’re so intelligent. You already know thus considerably on the subject of this matter, made
    me in my view believe it from numerous varied angles. Its like
    women and men don’t seem to be involved unless it is something to do with Lady gaga!

    Your own stuffs nice. Always take care of it up!

  17. Just got a robo call from Mayor diBlasio asking me to vote for Kathy Hochul for Lt. Governor.

    I noticed a TV ad Thursday for Cuomo and Hochul. These ads, and mailings, call for people to vote for Cuomo, but mention Hochul in a prominent position.

    They are trying to make sure voters remember her name without calling attention to the fact that that’s what they are doing.

    The robo call is the first thing with Hochul alone.
