CNN’s new ‘Crossfire’ producer said Romneys partied while ‘black people drowning’

This is from Fox News.

This is why CNN’s ratings could not be found by the Hubble telescope.

I do not understand how CNN,PMSNBC are still on the air.

Is George Soros  propping them up with his money?


CNN’s reboot of “Crossfire” has a new supervising producer – a media veteran fired last year by Yahoo! News for saying Mitt and Ann Romney were happy to watch “black people drowning.”

David Chalian, who most recently served as vice president of video programming for Politico, will be the hands-on boss in the control room for the show, which is set to debut this fall. Prior to Politico, Chalian was Washington bureau chief for Yahoo! News until his extreme liberal bias was exposed while he covered the Republican National Convention last year.

“They aren’t concerned at all,” Chalian said, describing GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann. “They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”

Chalian apparently didn’t realize his microphone, which also picked up associates laughing about the remark, was live. He was apparently alluding to the convention taking place as Hurricane Isaac hit New Orleans.

Chalian apologized for the comments, which he called an “inappropriate and thoughtless joke.” But Yahoo fired him two days later, saying, “we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.”

Tim Graham, director of media analysis at Media Research Center, said CNN’s ignoring of Chalian’s hot mic comment is telling.

“They have obviously decided that some gaffes are not career-crippling,” Graham said. “I do not see a cable network of this stripe hiring someone who’d made a crude racial comment against Obama.”

“Crossfire,” a raucous news show with liberals and conservatives debating, sometimes in pairs, debuted in 1982 and was one of the network’s signature shows during its late-1980s heyday. Among its famous alumni are Pat Buchanan, John Sununu, Robert Novak, Michael Kinsley and Paul Begala. It ran until 2005, when it was canceled amid sluggish ratings and scathing criticism from comic Jon Stewart.

The network has undergone several lineup and personnel changes since former NBC boss Jeff Zucker took over as president last November.

“I’m excited to announce David Chalian is joining CNN as the supervising producer for Crossfire,” said Executive Producer Rebecca Kutler. “David’s experience bringing politics to the digital space will help shape the next generation of ‘Crossfire.’ We’re lucky to have him — he starts today.”

The network has tabbed Newt Gingrich and conservative columnist S.E. Cupp as the conservative hosts, squaring off nightly against former Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones, a former “green jobs” adviser to President Obama who stepped down in 2009 amid several controversies, including his name having appeared on a 9/11 truther petition.

Stephanie Cutter: “Benghazi Only an Issue Because of Romney & Ryan”

Leave a comment

This is from Town Hall.

The lies coming for this administration  makes Joseph Goebbels smile.

How do these people sleep at night?

On CNN this afternoon, Obama‘s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, managed to record what might be the most offensive and out-of-touch soundbite to come out of this election cycle. Speaking with Brooke Baldwin about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that claimed the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, Cutter actually had the gall to say that this is only an issue because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are making it one: 

In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.

Hey — if that’s why this is in the news, them more power to them. It’s not simply stump fodder, as Cutter portrays it to be; it was a troubling and yet-unsolved breach of national security. It should be getting airtime, and what’s more, the Obama Administration’s foreign affairs policy should be receiving some skeptical attention. It’s fast becoming clear that threats weren’t taken seriously — threats for whichStevens himself requested help — and as Guy reported earlier, even family members of the deadhaven’t received answers.

The tragedy never should have occurred to begin with — not with sufficient embassy security — but now that it has, it’s also been mishandled at every turn. Officials at the highest level of the Obama Administration have distorted the facts — most glaringly, in blaming a ridiculous YouTube video for the violence. This was a policy failure, and as the man who wishes to become our nation’s top policymaker, Romney is well within his rights to question how Obama and co. have dealt with the disaster. He’s addressing an issue that many Americans are concerned about, and feel the president has handled poorly.

So for a moment, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt, and say that Cutter means Romney is trying to use this issue to make Obama look bad. But that’s not even true — he’d look bad regardless of whether another candidate for his office challenged him on it. The facts about what they knew and when, and the ensuing public relations disaster speak for themselves. For her to sit there and simper into a camera about how Romney is “reckless and irresponsible” about reacting to Libya takes a lot of guts. It was her boss’ reckless and irresponsible strategy that landed us here in the first place.

Update: Cutter took to Twitter moments after her disastrous CNN appearance and responded to Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski with the following:


Well, that whole “getting facts” line is not terribly accurate — see any one of the links above — and accusing Romney of having “no plans of his own?” How about this: he’s in adamant opposition to the sequestration cuts to our national defense, set to take place January 2, 2013, and which would include a $129 billion cut to embassy security worldwide. It certainly seems like preserving and strengthening security at our embassies worldwide is a solid step in the right direction — and it’s clear which candidate has an eye to accomplishing that.

Just keep digging, Cutter.

Update II: Andrea Saul, Mitt Romney’s press secretary, just issued the campaign’s statement in response to Cutter’s remarks:

“President Obama’s campaign today said that Libya is only an issue because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. They’re wrong. The reason it is an issue is because, for the first time since 1979, an American ambassador was assassinated and President Obama’s foreign policy strategy of ‘leading from behind’ is failing. This administration has continually misled the American public about what happened in Benghazi and, rather than be truthful about the sequence of events, has instead skirted responsibility and dodged questions. The American people deserve straight answers about this tragic event and a president who can provide leadership, not excuses.”



Obama Campaign Manager: Obama’s Recovery Stronger Than Reagan’s

Leave a comment

This is from Freedom Outpost.

Stephanie Cutter is a drug addled fool.

Stephanie is also a pathological liar.

She has to be to lie like this with a straight face.

While the Obama campaign continues putting out so many lies it’s hard to keep up with, this latest one by campaign manager Stephanie Cutter is a Whopper! We’re talking nuclear whopper!

Appearing on MSNBC, she was interviewed by Willie Geist who asked her, “What would you say to that same person that said, ‘Well, that hasn’t worked for four years. I haven’t had the job over time, it’s time for a change.’” Cutter responded,

Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what’s happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around, and over the past, you know, 27 months we’ve created 4.5 million private sector jobs. That’s more jobs than in the Bush recovery, in the Reagan recovery, there’s obviously more we need to do, and as I said to Mika at the at beginning of the program, I think that unemployed worker probably sees one person in this race trying to move the country forward and that’s the president.

Well, we know that Barack Obama is no Ronald Reagan and I pointed that out and gave the numbers to prove it. We also know that Stephanie Cutter knows how to put the ‘sin’ in spin.

In a piece by Jame Pethokoukis titled “Sorry, Stephanie Cutter, the Obama recovery hasn’t created more jobs than the Reagan recovery”, he gives Cutter a major rude awakening of the real numbers involved when it comes to jobs and inheriting a bad economy. Remember, Obama inherited nothing like Reagan did. Pethokoukis writes,

From the end of the recession in June 2009 through July 2012 — the first 37 months of the Obama recovery — the U.S. economy has generated 2.7 million net new jobs. From the jobs low point in February 2010, the U.S. economy has generated 4 million net new jobs.

From the end of the 1981-82 recession through the end of 1985 — the first 37 months of the Reagan recovery — the U.S.created 9.8 million net new jobs. And if you adjust for the larger U.S. population today, the comparable figure is more than 12 million jobs.

Cutter counts the job gains from the low point of Obama’s term forward. The low point was February 2010 when U.S. nonfarm payrolls measured 129,244,00. In July, they measured 133,245,000 for a gain of 4.0 million jobs in 27 months If you measure the Reagan recovery the same way, he created 8.0 million new jobs in 27 months. And if you measure the Bush recovery the same way, the low point was in August 2003 when U.S. employment stood at 129,820,00. But 27 months later, the figure was 134,654,000 in November 2005 — a gain of 4.8 million jobs.

The reality is this: Neither Reagan or Obama actually created any jobs. Reagan simply set the economic policy of the nation so that jobs could be created by private citizens. Obama has done the opposite and thrown money at his backers.

But in terms of the reflection of their numbers side by side, Reagan’s record reflects so much better than Obama’s. In fact, Jimmy Carter’s record reflects better than Obama’s.

This must be why the DNC asked Jimmy Carter to address the DNC. Even the previous worst President of the United States fairs better than the current one.



Obama Campaign Defends President’s $700 Billion Cuts to Medicare

Leave a comment


This is from The Weekly Standard.

The Obama administration says Paul Ryan will destroy medicare.

When in fact just the opposite is true,it is Obama that will destroy medicare.

Paul Ryan’s plan would actually fix the medicare problem.

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter defended President Obama’s $700 billion cuts to Medicare:

“On top of the savings we’ve already achieved. You know I heard Mitt Romney deride the $700 billion cuts in Medicare that the president achieved through health care reform,” said Cutter.


Our Dishonorable President



This is by Derek Hunter in Town Hall.

Obama is a Chicago street thug.

He could not find the word honorable in the dictionary.

Obama is a political expedient two-faced  political whore.

He will do or say what ever he needs to say to appease his base.

Whatever words or phrases he uses mean nothing.

As for civility it is another word he could not find in the dictionary.

After the massacre in Tucson that saw six murdered and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and 12 others wounded, President Obama gave a speech at the memorial where he called for raising the tone in politics. To honor the memory of those killed and wounded the president said:

The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives — to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation in a way that would make them proud.

Moving words. Also a lie.

President Obama had no interest in having “more civility in our public discourse,” no concern for those grieving families. He said what was expected of him as president – touching, well-delivered words we now know had as much meaning to him as his promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term.

The president has stood silently while his supporters, surrogates and staff have engaged in some of the most transparently desperate and disgusting campaign rhetoric of the modern age.

Without proof or even proof to the contrary, Democrats have accused Mitt Romney of being a felon, a tax cheat, a racist and a murderer. With each charge, the president avoided leveling the charge himself. But he said nothing … did nothing to stop them.

The media only recently bothered to ask his staff about the latest lie his allies have propagated – that Romney’s actions at Bain Capital are somehow responsible for the death by lung cancer of the wife of former steel worker and current liberal activist Joe Soptic.

Their response? The natural instinct of liberals when challenged – to lie.

First, we learned Mrs. Soptic didn’t die until seven years after Romney left Bain Capital. Oops.

Then, we were told the president had no knowledge of Joe Soptic or the basis of his claim Romney was responsible for his wife’s death. But then we learned White House staffers pimped Soptic’s story on a conference call back in May, and the campaign still pimps his wife’s death on its website. Oops again.

Even then, they wouldn’t admit they were lying – liars never do. They admitted only the story Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter had been telling on national television the day before was not in line with reality. Cutter, the Obama staffer who hosted the conference call featuring Soptic, and a regular in the media, promptly canceled her appearance on ABC’s This Week and was replaced by head campaign hack David Axelrod. It’s much easier to deny a lie on behalf of someone else because the video of the lie will not be of you.

While all of this happened, while the president’s own press secretary first denied any knowledge of the ad, then refused to comment or condemn it, Barack Obama was silent.

No reporters have asked the president directly about this because they haven’t had the chance. He has avoided questions from the media for weeks – as if his henchmen have threatened to take away his golf clubs if he opens his mouth.

But when his flying monkeys learned Mitt Romney’s campaign had rejected a proposal from a pro-Romney SuperPAC to link Obama to his racist pastor of 20 years, they feigned outrage and demanded Romney – who truly was uninvolved – condemn it.

None of this occurs naturally. All of it comes from the top. And the top is Barack Obama.

You can tell all you need to know about a man’s character by comparing his words with his actions.

Every day he and his allies refuse to repudiate this disgraceful ad, every hour they continue these reprehensible lies, every second they embrace these dishonorable tactics, they spit on the graves of those victims in Tucson the president himself said he wanted to honor. The longer Barack Obama refuses to condemn and end the vicious tactics and words used in his name, the more he dishonors the memory of Christina Taylor Green and the other victims.

At that January memorial for the victims of that massacre, Barack Obama said this of the Green, the youngest murder victim:

If there are rain puddles in heaven, Christina is jumping in them today. And here on Earth, we place our hands over our hearts and commit ourselves as Americans to forging a country that is forever worthy of her gentle, happy spirit.

Did he mean those words when he said them? Or were they the utterings of a sociopath who exploited the death of a 9-year-old girl for the moment and quickly cast her aside like he’s cast aside so many others?

Sadly for our country and their memories, the answer is clear.
