Where Liberalism Is Alive and Well!

A Note To Andrew Sullivan, Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz – Pre-debate #2

Dear Andrew, Chris & Ed,

President Obama is not an Ultimate Fighter who will exact the revenge that you seek on Mitt Romney.

You are not the only people watching this debate and what the President says is not personal to just you, so prepare yourselves. The President represents all Americans and he isn’t going to just say what you want to hear.

This debate is not the actual election, don’t freak out if Mitt Romney has a good “performance” while telling his blatant lies. He’s been rehearsing for this moment for over 5 years, he ought to be good at it by now. And he can afford to hire (and fire) the best coaches.

As the Republican media spins like hell after the debate, please don’t curl up into the fetal position, stick your giant thumbs in your puckered little mouths and whine like someone took your “bankie” away. Put on your big boy pants and act like an adult. You can do it.

What the candidates say actually matters, not just how slickly and passionately they deliver it. Fuck style, give me some substance.

If you give a shit about the future of our country and want to see President Obama continue to move us forward, don’t let your personal expectations and desires interfere with your other higher brain functions, like reasoning and tact.

If you can’t handle any of the above, just SHUT. THE. HELL. UP. and let the rest of us do your jobs for you.

Sincerely,

Extreme Liberal

  2. Just watched Tweety Bird and was thinking that I hope that President Obama wasn’t watching or he might feel like Gulliver being pulled in all directions by the Lilliputians. Obama needs to be unrestrained, be himself!

    When Matthews went off on a tirade two weeks ago, he was so vain as to say that Obama is at fault for not watching such programs as his.

    “Where was Obama tonight? He should watch — well not just Hardball…Rachel, he should watch you, the Reverend Al, Lawrence. There’s a hot debate going on in this country, here on this network is where we’re having the debate. We have our knives out, we go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in there disarmed. Obama should watch MSNBC. He will learn something every night. This stuff we’re watching, this is like first grade to most of us. We know all of this stuff.”

  4. Quite a change of tone by the MSNBC “talking heads” tonight with Matthews “scoring” 6 for Obama, 3 a tie, and Romney only one “win”. I am sure the folks at Faux News will be crying about the moderator again as they did over Martha Raddatz.

  5. For those who think MSNBC is totally in the pocket of Obama, read this article about how Mark Halperin, a permanent fixture at MSNBC (nearly always on Morning Joe) has given a pass to Romney re-inventing himself with his “Etch-a-Sketch”…

  6. Romney reminded me of a kid that didn’t study for a final exam, and had to keep sneeking a peek at his neighbor’s paper.
