Defending the IRS: MSNBC’s Support Of Obama, Once An Asset, Now Puts Network In A Losing Position


MSNBC is also built on pointing out the hypocrisy and/or evil nature of the Republican Party and Fox News, two cornerstones of its content.

But now it is President Obama and his promise to be a completely transparent administration that is being gleefully exposed as hypocritical by the GOP and Fox.

If Nate Silver is the next Nostradamus, the President is already a lame-duck. Silver says Democrats have little chance to take back the house in 2014. No House control, no ability for a President—whose credibility has taken a toll over the past month for which it will be difficult to recover from—to advance anything grandiose in a second term.

In other words, the President is (to quote Tom Cruise in The Firm): “. . . like a ship carrying a cargo that will never reach any port”.

On the U.S.S. Obama is MSNBC. And in making a run at Fox and in an effort to distance itself from CNN, they simply rearranged the deck chairs by doing things like moving Chris Hayes from weekday mornings to primetime. The result has been nothing short of disastrous, as he now trails The O’Reilly Factor by a 7-to-1 margin while failing to get 500,000 viewers per night (Keith Olbermann, conversely, routinely generated over 1.2 million viewers before being asked to leave).

The only hope, of course, is Hillary and the Clinton for President 2.0 2016 campaign. It was somehow the lead story on the Chris Matthews Show on Sunday. All complete with fat jokes about Chris Christie (lather, rinse, repeat) from the host, who ain’t exactly Calista Flockhart himself…

Benghazi? IRS? AP phone records seized?

Nope…it’s all about an election 42 months away.


Because it’s a challenge to defend the President these days.

His party won’t win in 2014.

He’s already past tense, a lame duck.

What to do?

Either continue to defend entities like the IRS…

Or Lean Forward with Hillary to 2016.

I don’t know if that would save them. I really hope it doesn’t.

MSNBC was HillaryHate Central back in 2008. Olberman is gone and Russert is dead but Chris Matthews is always more deranged than usual when dealing with Bill and/or Hillary Clinton. A lot of their viewers still hate Hillary too.

On the other hand, Jon Stewart has obviously seen the writing on the wall:

    Why is it that the IRS knows more about Conservative groups than the President of the United States knows about the AP scandal or Benghazi terror attacks?

    This administration seems to pride itself in its ability to sell you “big government” as an answer to your problems & when it not only fails to solve your problems, but causes them, it feigns ignorance.

    I worked with the President and found him to be aloof and missing managerial skills. He has surrounded himself with “Yes-Men” and his staff has fallen in love with the trappings of office while forfeiting the responsibilities of the office.

    The Executive branch of our government has failed us. We are to be valued as citizens, not treated as subjects.
