MSNBC's Morris Reid: Buckwheat, Alfalfa & Obama

Buckwheat, Alfalfa and Obama.

In a stunning display of stupidity and bias MSNBC aired this piece from three morons.

O'DONNELL: Well, I want to play what she said yesterday. Because she did talk to reporters for about eight minutes. Specifically, it's the second sound bite we have here and it is about this dinner. Because she was asked if, in fact, she was heading to this dinner. And the reason it's interesting is because her staff denied to reporters, like myself, that she was actually going to this dinner. And then, she came out and revealed it. Listen to what she had to say about why she wanted to come here to Washington for this dinner.

PALIN: Alfalfa dinner, yes. In fact, that's because President Obama is scheduled to be there. And how often will I have an opportunity to have dinner with the president. I will take up that offer to do so, yeah.

O'DONNELL: Morris, didn't she call him a terrorist on the campaign trail?

MORRIS REID: Well, I think she called him a terrorist among other things. But listen, the woman's hungry. She's got to eat, Norah. We got to feed the woman, don't we.


REID: You know, she lives in public housing, we got to feed her on the public doll. She got a bridge to nowhere. We love Sarah Palin on the Democratic side. We can't get enough of her.

FEEHREY: You know, Norah, there's nothing like having dinner with 2,000 of your closest friends and the president. So it's going to be a small intimate dinner.

O'DONNELL: However, it is not 2,000 people.

REID: I think -- I don't think she knew -- I think she -- Norah, I think she thought it was just her, and Buckwheat, and Alfalfa, with the president at dinner. She's just clueless, it's ridiculous.

O'DONNELL: Well, she is meeting also with a number of senators, including the Republican leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell, as well as, I think, some -- Senator Snow, there's going to be a private dinner for her at Fred Malik's house. So she is doing a little bit of courting. Many people think that could mean she's gearing up for 2012.

Morris Reid, John Feehery, great to talk to both of you. Thanks so much.

Now, NoraO'Donnell has never been described as the sharpest tool in the shed, but she has to be the only person in DC that didn''t know that Palin was going to the Alfalfa Dinner. That she, Reid and what'shisname got a good chuckle repeating lies about Gov Palin is only indicative of just how brown their noses are. I'd recommend to them that in polite company that they use a Depends as a face mask so as not to offend anyone more than they already do.

Buckwheat, Alfalfa and Obama indeed. A real howler.

Thanks to Gateway Pundit for the h/t

Nanna Pelosi NonPartisan

Oh, please.

Nana Nonpartisan:
“I didn’t come here to be partisan. I didn’t come here to be bipartisan. I came here, as did my colleagues, to be nonpartisan, to work for the American people, to do what is in their interest.

The president’s agenda is reflected in this legislation. It’s — I mentioned, some of the priorities that were there about creating jobs, cutting taxes, helping states through this difficult economic time, and to do so in a fiscally sound way.

People vote for what they believe in. Clearly, the Republicans did not believe in the agenda that I just described for you, and that’s probably one of the reasons they voted that way. I think they probably voted their conscience and they couldn’t support that. …

We reached out to the Republicans all along the way, and they know it. And they know it. They were part of the original bill, with the — some of the tax provisions were their suggestions. They had what they asked for in terms of committee mark-up. They had the rule on the floor that gave them plenty of opportunity to make changes. They just didn’t have the ideas that had the support of the majority of the people in the Congress. ”

Obama's Election Signals Full Frontal On Capitalism Worldwide

The pot dots are in high dudgeon world wide over perceived wrongs done them.

At the moment, those on the left here in America have their marching orders to attack Rush Limbaugh and it is humorous to read and hear the dire predictions and see their outrageous puffery from high to low screeching and lectures are coming from mostly unread blogs here in Ohio all the way up to President Obama. All seem to be on the same page, same note, but as usual, all are off key, but feeling mighty empowered by it all. Man the barricades, dudes, the fight is on. Power to the people!!

The unions are sniffing victory in the wind with Mr. Change snugly in the White House and Reid Pelosi in the power palace of poverty. By the way, Congress is just down the street in DC from the marble temples to the working man in which the union leaders are directing their people to express outrage at how corporations have destroyed them. I love the irony that the press, union members themselves, can't seem to see that it is the unions and liberal policy that have caused the whole mess. Defend the market system just to watch the apoplexy attack in a liberal.

Riots in France, the poster child for union absurdity, and Germany caused Guy Ryder, the general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), to whine about a time bomb of crisis and other incendiary images to warn of soaring crime. As if a union needs an excuse. His real point is that the unions will get what they want or they will destroy governments and forms of government, especially:

“We are on the road to serious social instability, which could be extremely dangerous in some countries to democracy itself.”

He said: “Davos does not make me at all confident. I don’t see any of the leadership here that is needed to get us out of this crisis . . . There is very little contrition here.”

I'm sure Mr. Ryder feels contrition as he flies first class and rides in his limo.

From Australia we get this twisted spin on economics:

Sharan Burrow, the president of the Australian Council of Trade Unions, said that the world was now witnessing the human cost of “casino capitalism” as the impacts of rising unemployment and home repossessions and of plunges in savings and pension funds hit millions of families.

Ms Burrow said: “Why shouldn’t working people be angry? Their money is being used to stabilise the financial system, but it is their wealth, their jobs and the welfare of their children that is being stripped away.”

Ms Burrow might want to take a deep breath and realize that the financial system is their financial system and working together, instead of being adversarial, might help the markets recover. Like that's going to happen. She likes her little perch of power too much.

Mr Ryder, always good for a headline, went further:

However, Mr Ryder issued a blunt assessment of this year’s World Economic Forum. “The certainties that have defined Davos for the past ten years have collapsed,” he said. “We are witnessing the collapse of an entire system of ideas.”

Capitalism is strong. Is it strong enough to face down this worldwide assault? We'll see, but it will be those that won't be bullied that will right the ship in the end, as always. The specter of this 'change' will grow, but who will tell of the horrors in the history of this brave new world in which whole classes of workers sink into despair and a gray gloom as the mechanics of 'change' turn the screw just one more notch, because then it will all work, don't you see?

It's history tragically repeating itself as the purveyors of hope tell tales of human brotherhood uniting in a great revolution where all people are equal. Equally out of work or equally working meaningless nationalized jobs and are equally, but fairly you see, poor.

What a nightmare of unhappiness being dreamed by the unhappy for the rest of us to share that we do not want.
