What Liberal Media? Oh, That Liberal Media

The Daily Caller is releasing leaked emails from JournoList, an Internet cadre of journalists talking shop, free from the constraints of having to pretend that they have any sense of objectivity. Take a gander at the reaction of our hard-hitting journalists to the election of Barack Obama.

My personal favorite is Ryan Donmoyer from Bloomberg News who wrote: “Best quip I heard today, courtesy of a Facebook friend: ‘I wonder if Sarah Palin is still unclear about what a community organizer does.'”

A commenter calling himself (or herself) “Broken Window” responds: “It’s July 2010. Unemployment is way up, private investment is way down, the federal deficit has been multiplied, and racial tensions have been fanned by administration operatives…I wonder if RYAN DONMOYER of BLOOMBERG NEWS is still unclear about what a community organizer does.”

  1. It’s now October 2012. Unemployment has dropped below 8%, jobs are being created instead of being lost at a rate of 800,000 a month, corporate profits are at a record high, the deficit is on a downward trajectory, and the tea party is a shell of its former self. It’s good to be right.

      Yes, it’s October 2012. Unemployment is at the same place it was when Obama took office because millions of people have grown so despondent that they have stopped looking for work. There are 23 million unemployed. The size of the workforce is smaller now. The unemployment/underemployment rate is about 14%. Corporate profits are at a record high but they are still not hiring because they fear the ramifications of Obama’s tax and regulatory policies. The deficit is once again over a trillion dollars this year, and the national debt has gone from 10 trillion to 16 trillion in just the last four years. The tea party is not in the news very much, having been replaced by the vermin in their Nazi- and Communist-endorsed, lice infested rape camps at Occupy Wherever. I don’t feel it’s good to be right. I was right and I weep for my country. I’m not sure how you know whether it’s good to be right, though, when you are so clearly wrong.

      • Unemployment, a lagging indicator, is down from the stimulus. It’s the trajectory that matters. But, if you insist on using the analogy of where it stands at the end of a term, fine. When George W. Bush took office, unemployment was 4.2 percent. By October 2004 it was 5.5%. In his last month of office it was 7.8% I wouldn’t focus too much on the size of the workforce considering 10,000 boomers a day are retiring. Factor them out and get back to me… Obama policies have not added $6 trillion to the debt — it’s more like $983 billion (http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/adding-to-the-deficit-bush-vs-obama/2012/01/31/gIQAQ0kFgQ_graphic.html). Profitable companies don’t make hiring decisions about hiring based on who’s president — they base them on economics, and right now the economics say hire overseas.

        The tea party folded under its own stupidity. I’ll give you no argument on Occupy Wall Street — that’s just stupidity of a different kind. I would observe, however, that it’s inconsistent to assert support by both Nazis and communists. That simply makes no sense.

        As for weeping for your country, I’m disappointed you have so little faith.

        Not sure how inconsistent it is. Occupy Wall Street was endorsed by both the Communist Party USA and the Nazis. They’re both variants of socialism, you know. And I have great faith in Americans. I just have none in the current administration.
