I have not heard a word about this on any news channel… I do hear the crickets chirpping.
Found this at News Busters.
Imagine if a speechwriter for John McCain had switched sides and announced she was going to vote for Barack Obama. Would she not be featured bigtime in the mainstream media complete with new thrills running up Chris Matthews leg? Well, this did happen except that it was an Obama speechwriter, Wendy Button, who became disillusioned with The One and switched to supporting McCain. Here are the highlights of Wendy Button’s explanation of why she made the switch:
Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional.”
Young lady, only when the switch is made from Republican to Democrat will it be mentioned in the MSM. They search the country for “lifelong Republicans” who are going to vote for Obama but when an Obama speechwriter switches over to the “Dark Side,” all you will hear from the MSM is the sound of crickets chirping.
My favorite part of the article:
“..The final straw came the other week when Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (a.k.a Joe the Plumber) asked a question about higher taxes for small businesses. Instead of celebrating his aspirations, they were mocked. He wasn’t “a real plumber,” and “They’re fighting for Joe the Hedge-Fund manager,” and the patronizing, “I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber.”
Having worked in politics, I know that absolutely none of this is on the level. This back and forth is posturing, a charade, and a political game. These lines are what I refer to as “hooker lines”—a sure thing to get applause and the press to scribble as if they’re reporting meaningful news.”
I have been putting up with Obamatrons coming to my site and citing former soldiers, republicans, conservatives and even some rednecks that will be voting for Obama…
I have recently heard of several McCain supporters that I never knew supported him, folks in the military, VERY HIGH RANKING current and former Armed forces men and women, I am hearing of many folks jumping from the Obama camp because of his stances on Taxes, Guns, and the UNANSWERED Questions about his past.
One thing I’d like to know is, how Obama is going to make government “MORE TRANSPARENT” when Joe the plumber can’t ask a question? I wonder what the approval rating for GWB would be if he subscribed to Barack Hussein Obama’s media policy? I would bet GWB would have a great approval rating if he was able to answer only the questions he liked…(Don’t get this line confused with Bush Bots, it is an observation and an opinion that the media has played a huge role in the approval ratings of our elected officials.)
Fascism coupled with Socialism is coming to America and it is coming on the wings of the Messiah Barack Hussein Obama. :hole:
