    ....said something about this. Time to call this for what it is. If this were happening to George Bush, they'd be screamin' about it night and day using some catchy soundbite.

    The communicator cannot communicate on this. Or won't.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

      I don't think you understand how hostile the media actually is.  You can rant and rave all day long if there are no cameras on you.

          He points out their passion for saving tax breaks for the wealthy, too.  

          He talks about a lot of things that no one notices because the real drama of the media is in drama, the creation of.

          I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

          •  No, set aside all the crap about the middle class (0+ / 0-)

            He needs to be simple and clear: "The Republicans in the Senate are obstructing by filibuster the will of the American People. The Republican Senators have decided to engage in an ongoing tyranny of the minority by refusing to let the Senate vote on any bills they dislike or disagree with."

            Simple and elegant. He keeps muddying it with all the nattering about the middle class.

              if he did that each time, that he'd get the play that he does.  There is obvious censoring of message that happens on the major media channels and one must sneak things past those guys with the finger on the button.  I truly believe our corrupt media is the number one issue facing our politics today.
