Frank Luntz Vegas Focus Group – “Worst evah!”

You have to watch to believe my little hostage takers. The politically correct left stands up to defend Obama’s hostage taker comment and … well all heck breaks lose. It’s as entertaining as it is revealing. Apparently political correctness gets tossed right out the window when it comes to the One. “It was just a metaphor.” Heh.

The conversation begins with a quick look at the young President’s comments from two days ago likening Republicans to hostage takers. Clearly it’s a sop to the left. Don’t worry guys, the devil made me do it. And apparently it worked swell with the lefties in this group. But the conservatives looked confused, as in, “Hey, I thought we shouldn’t use language like this?”. One lefty went so far as to blame it on speech writers. Ughhh. The One is Teflon for sure.

While you are watching, make sure you make special note of the unemployed woman at the 3:30 on the tape. Right after she hammers the businessman for being greedy, she checks her Blackberry. Too much.


Words … just words!

    The left slammed Bush every time he opened his mouth. Yet they come up with everything from the speech writers (doesn't Obama proofread?) to "it's just verbiage" (I can think of a few words that I would not want to be called, even though they are just words) to excuse this man's incompetence.

    I don't know…jamming, stuffing, shoving, sneaking policies down our throats seems like something a "hostage taker" would do. Oh, yeah…what about forcing me to sit in the backseat? He may be confused about which party he's talking about.

    The Dems routinely use blacks, children, hispanics, police, firemen, teachers, the homeless, the middle class etc. as political hostages.  It is their modus operandi!  Everyone, except the "rich", of course, is a human shield for the liberals!   What are they kvetching about?

    All above, you are RIGHT! However, I am saddened by my own reaction of anger! Of all seasons of the year, this is the one where I try not to feel anger and forgive all. It is a losing battle. To Jim, words just words can start wars.

    What if this conversation were based on say….(hypothetically speaking) Sarah Palin calling the dems hostage takers over the health care bill or any other act?they’ve been deaf to the people about.

    The double standard in our politics and media is becoming laughably obvious.

    The left is acting stupidly here.

     Notice I said laughably obvious. Try to see the absurdity in it and don't let it anger you. The angry ones will be the ones to lash out.

    Like Jim always says, "You lefties crack me up!!"

    GdavidH, yes that helps! Particularly when I see Bill Clinton helping President Obama to sell the compromise to the Dems. It's like I'm with Alice-in-Wonderland. I think I'll go watch a Monty Python tape.

    Is abdication actually an option for the young(inexperienced and unqualified) President???
