MSNBC’S Andrea Mitchell: Political hack (Video)

She is quickly becoming the very definition of a political hack. Remember this is the same woman that could not find her way to apologize for a video so poorly edited it made Mitt Romney look like he was out of touch. Remember the famous Wawa video? Except this video is so much juicier.

Although I should not be surprised NBC is known for editing little pieces of video so that they make the Democratic agenda look better. This time however Mrs. Alan Greenspan got her lunch handed to her by Romney surrogate, and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu. It was an embarrassment not for Sununu, but for Mitchell and journalism in general.

Listen my little mobsters as John Sununu pushes back against Andrea Mitchell pushing back at him on who is the bigger outsourcer in chief, Romney or Obama?

Perhaps the folks over at Ace put it best when they said, “Poor Andrea Mitchell was inadequately briefed by the White House on what Talking Points she should offer. Sununnu chuckles at her by the end”.


And here is some bonus video … Mitchell clearly thinks she will have the upper hand in an argument over 97% of small businesses getting a tax cut in Obama”s proposal from yesterday. After all the WaPo says it’s true … but as we explained this morning  … the 3% who get their taxes hiked, create the jobs.

Most commonly, the Small Business Administration uses the definition of less than 500 employees to denote small, but out of the 27 million firms in the U.S., 21 million are nonemployer firms and approximately 2.3 million have more than four employees.

So, do these 2.3 million firms deserve their reputation as job creators? Yes and no—yes, in that some of these firms are aspiring and do plan to create jobs. We do know from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor that in 2010 nascent and growing firms had fairly low expectations for growth. This study, which surveys individuals in the process of starting or growing ventures, found that 14.3% of early-stage entrepreneurs (those less than 42 months old) expected to create 20 or more jobs in five years.

    Here is info where stimulus money was used to outsource work to foreign companies, make sure you scroll all the way thru

    Sputter, sputter, but, but.
    I love it when Liberals are caught out. Look for Andrea to show up at the WH as the new press secretary, or, a speech writer.

    Poor Baba Wawa….it really wasn’t a fair fight.? She’d better get back in touch with PBO and company to polish up on the dem talking points.

      Probably not, but do they have to be so painfully inept at doing so?
      To paraphrase the old saying (Lincoln? Clemens? The Bible?): “it is better to keep your mouth shut and be presumed a hack, than to open it and remove all doubt”.
      Nothing could be finer than Sununu laughing at her.? Priceless!

    I can think of no greater tribute to pay to Andrea Mitchell than to describe her in the terms that beloved leftist Bill Maher uses for Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann.

    • Dimsdale on July 11, 2012 at 11:45 am

      <Snort!!>? The term would certainly be more apropos!

    “That’s why he’s gonna lose”…from Sununu’s mouth to God’s ears.

    • JBS on July 11, 2012 at 1:06 pm

      It’s very important to keep up the message that ‘bama is going to lose, big time!
      . . . heard ’round town: “He (Obama) isn’t doing his job! He’s always on the television, out playing golf, on vacation or at one of his fundraisers. I’m working and our president is telling everyone how good he is, playing and hobnobbing with his rich friends . . . he should be taking care of the business and he isn’t!”

    • Tim-in-Alabama on July 12, 2012 at 12:19 pm

      ?Obama does have some pretty big ears so I’m sure he heard Sununu … oh, wait … you meant the lesser God.

    The sheer amount of hubris is quite amazing, but aside from that Dims hits on a really salient point, which is they are getting increasingly inept, strident, shrill and in many cases so wrong that even their own ilk are calling them out. They are their own worst enemies. I say let them wail and piss and moan. Our job, rightly should be to correct the record, demand retractions when necessary, and otherwise do the “Live Free or Die” Sununu Chuckle.

    • JBS on July 12, 2012 at 5:09 pm

      So what if Mrs. Andrea Mitchell-Greenspan (married by Ruth Bader Ginsberg in 1997) is totally stupid and devoid of objectivity? The Progressives don’t care what kind of limousine liberal putz attacks the Right.

      As long as someone attacks the hated Conservatives.
      She can be sacrificed for the continuation of Obama. Doesn’t matter. The Left doesn’t care how ridiculous their attack dogs sound, as long as an attack is made.?
      It’s street fighting from a community organizer. It’s win at all costs.

    Darn it you all said everything already. I hate when that happens. Sununu Chuckle, I am chortling away.
