two very different narratives
Andrew Sullivan gets it wrong again: Hillary Clinton’s blood clot may not have been caused by a concussionJanuary 1, 2013
(THE DAILY CALLER via matzav.com) If President Obama lost Bill Maher, you know he lost the debate.
On television and on Twitter, President Obama’s most fervent liberal backers in the media lamented the president’s performance in the first presidential debate in Denver, Colo.
“i can’t believe i’m saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter,” liberal comedian Bill Maher, who donated $1 million dollars to a pro-Obama super PAC, said in a tweet.
“Obama made a lot of great points tonight. Unfortunately, most of them were for Romney,” he said in another tweet.
Liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews had a similar assessment.
“What was Romney doing tonight, he was winning,” Matthews declared. “If he gets five more of these nights, forget it.”
Matthews’ colleague, liberal MSNBC host Ed Schultz, agreed.
“I thought he was off his game,” Schultz said of the president.
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore had something of a hissy fit on Twitter over the president’s performance.
“He couldn’t say ANY of these words: ‘47%’ ‘BainCapital’ ‘FlipFlop’ ‘Bush’ ‘Detroit’ ‘Women(&women’s issues)’ Fire all debate consultants now,” Moore tweeted.
“lemme get this straight. You can send in drones that kill civilians, but you can’t stop Romney or Lehrer from interrupting you?,” he complained in another tweet.
“Is Bill Clinton coming in to sub for the next quarter? O! Wake up! Attack! That is not john McCain over on that podium!” he also tweeted earlier in the debate.
Liberal Daily Beast writer Andrew Sullivan also saw the president’s performance as disastrous.
“Look: you know how much I love the guy, and how much of a high info viewer I am, but this was a disaster for Obama,” he tweeted.
Sullivan even suggested Wednesday night’s performance may have lost the election for the president.
“How is Obama’s closing so…sad, confused, lame? He choked. He lost. He may even have lost election tonight,” he tweeted.
so get this… It is treasonous according to Andrew Sullivan for a politician to do the will of the majority of Americans who are against Obama’s foreign policy, but it is just fine for the Democrats and Pelosi to undermine the Republicans by talking to Syria when Bush was president. Undermining Bush was fine,,, but undermining Obama is treason. You would have to be pretty liberal thinking to oblige that conclusion… so liberal that suicide could be an option
Andrew Sullivan apparently believes that the picture below is cute – he nominated it for his ‘Face of the Day‘ on Wednesday.
Here’s the caption:

If Sullivan had to face those stone throwers rather than just posting pictures of them, he might find them a little less charming.
I don’t have to be as politically correct as the blog Israel Matzav that I steal my shit from.
