By The Right Scoop


This is great exchange by CNN’s Candy Crowley from this morning as she grilled David Plouffe on what exactly is Obama’s big new plan for the next four years. Turns out, according to Plouffe, it’s the same ideas that Obama campaigned on in 2008. The question that I really thought was excellent though was when Crowley asked Plouffe why they think they can accomplish these goals in another term if they weren’t able to accomplish them in the first term. Plouffe had no good answer.

    “These goals are long term. We need to ensure that the public sector unions rule the workforce. We need to ensure that Education indoctrinates the children. We need to ensure that we block all forms of ‘common sense’ energy production. We need to make sure that the people believe it will take decades to reach our goals. We need…”

    Wow. They’re actually coming out and boldly admitting their true intentions. What is wrong with CNN these days, to ask the real questions? Being at the bottom of the barrel does create it’s incentives, doesn’t it?

    • Patriot077

      I hope reality is contagious and the other networks start asking tough questions. If it gets better than this, I might even reinstate my dish tv :)

    • freenca

      Fluffy is just adhereing to the Keynsian theories of the 1930’s, same things they tried to institute back then, and we know how that turned out. They rolled back after FDR’s reign, THEN the economy got rolling in the right direction again. We’ve got throw these bums out on their arses in November to turn this economy around!

      • librtifirst

        I agree, but FDR did a lot of damage by creating government programs that would eventually take our wealth, and our freedoms. They didn’t do much to roll those back.

        • freenca

          Agreed, we do need to roll back alot more now. A big job, that’ll take several election cycles probably. It’s imperative that we keep doing the work from here on so we don’t lose all. Keeping the faith in Him and in each other.

          • librtifirst

            We need to have millions of people showing up at liberty rallies. We need to have a hundred thousand people at each polling place to protest the election fraud. We need more people than they have police that can arrest people exercising free speech. We need to invade both parties and their fraudulent rules and get rid of the two party dictatorship. When we have real elections, we will see better nominees.

            Maybe we will get a turn around before the end times comes to fruition.

    • librtifirst

      I think that they got the memo saying “were changing out the president, so go ahead and make him look bad”.

    In not one case, did the guy really tell the truth about Obama’s ‘accomplishments’. He’s done nothing but spout crap that’s been debunked for years, even by the liberal left (though not by the gasbag that’s talking to him, in the video). What he said boils down to ‘re-elect Obama, so you can have 4 more years of lies and a record high ‘misery index‘. Dude, seriously: show of hands of people that want me to interview this man, and ask him real questions, and really challenge his answers.

    • Nukeman60

      /raises hand

    • librtifirst

      You are just drumming up conspiracy theories, which is dangerous and could get someone killed. You better just turn yourself in and let them detain you for a few years until the economy recovers.

      If I raise my hand, will I have to go with you?

      • KenInMontana

        Are you familiar with the concept of “The Forlorn Hope”?

        • librtifirst

          Such as a group of soldiers sacrificing themselves for a possible advantage?

          • KenInMontana

            Sort of, the sacrifice part was a definite possibility but not a forgone conclusion. They were those who volunteered to be the first into the breach, who are, in modern times, referred to as the “tip of the spear”. While the odds are long, hope remains, they fight for that hope. The hope of a better future. If that hope is allowed to diminish or to be let to fade, then you may as well just fall on your own sword. I’m not there yet, are you?

            I will not let my country go without one hell of a fight, and I don’t think “they” even possess an inkling of just what kind of a fight they are in for.

              Very well put. I know exactly what you mean. There are never a lack of volunteers to do dirty, dangerous, but necessary work for the greater good when disaster strikes. Any kind of disaster, be it natural or man-made.

            • librtifirst

              It won’t be pretty. If political revolution fails after the collapse, the only hope would be a military coup. If our military does not step in before the foreign troops that Clinton started training in the nineties show up, we will be hashed. I would love to see our troops home, and protecting our borders right now.

              I think of how resolute the Islamic rebels are in the middle east, and wonder if Americans could possibly pull out half of their tenacity for a righteous cause in their own country.

              • Nukeman60

                You’d be surprised at how many great veterans are out there, just standing down, waiting to have their chance to protect this great nation once again. Our military would be there in a heartbeat, but in the interim, I know we will be in good hands.

            • librtifirst

    Plouffball is earning his keep today from what I hear. I hope to see the Chris Wallace interview some time today, from what I have read, it was pretty brutal.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donald-Arey-III/100001713622116 Donald Arey III

      Mediaite has the interview Plouffe did with Wallace, part of it anyway. Wallace really holds his feet to the fire, unlike Candy. His questions were about the intel leaks and Plouffe if flabbergasted when Wallace brings up Obama’s 2006 demand for a special prosecuter over the valerie plame leaks.

  • kong1967

    You save the middle class by making education cheaper? I’m all in for cheaper education…the right way and not on the backs of tax payers…..but the insinutation is that we just don’t have enough smart people to be middle class. Huh? The middle class jobs have to exist, jackass, before anyone can get the jobs. Please, someone tell me how cheaper education is going to create middle class jobs.

    • librtifirst

      Let me turn my brain around and see if I can do it then. OK. Uhhh. Nope, can’t do it.

      • kong1967

        Lol, that’s funny.

    • wodiej

      the problem is liberals want a fantasy world where everything is fair, just, peaceful. They simply don’t seem to be able to cope w reality. Getting something for nothing always costs somebody something.

      • kong1967

        That’s for sure. Even Kagan asked the question how is it a bad thing for the government to give the people something for free (Obamacare)? Uh, huh…free my ass.

        Education can be cheaper, but I’m sure the liberal way is to tax the rich more and to pay a higher chunk of the bill. Not only is that not cheaper, but it wouldn’t work. Tuition rates would just go up.

        To a liberal, if government pays it’s free. You’re exactly right, it’s costing someone something but if it helps a liberal voter then it’s free to the ones that matter (to the left). The housing bubble was created by falsely propping up Democrat voters who couldn’t qualify for a loan. A-holes.

        • librtifirst

          I don’t believe that the liberal politicians are ignorant to these facts, but there sure are a lot of mentally challenged liberal Americans who seem to vote for them. I don’t think that the mentally challenged should be able to vote, and especially when we have such a huge epidemic of mentally challenged people.

          • kong1967

            Agreed. In my opinion, if you’re on welfare you shouldn’t be able to vote. That takes away the pandering of the politicians that throw money at people that only vote for the party that does so. If they don’t like it, then get off welfare. I would also agree to a political aptitude test or something, but neither will ever happen.

            • librtifirst

              Its a huge conflict of interest to be getting something from people who can secure your handout if you vote for them. It is especially critical when government has no right to steal from some people to give it to others. (not that we actually pay for it)

              Could you imaging what this country would look like if we had no property taxes, and only land owners could vote? When we had that system, we had a lot more liberty. I know for a fact that the country folk wouldn’t vote for this type of government.

              I say, give every county equal electoral college votes. As you said, it will never happen. It sucks knowing the answers, and also knowing that we will never see them happen.

              • kong1967

                Not only are they not going to happen, we are going to have to face the opposite. A growing welfare population that votes. The day is coming when the children dictate what the parents do.

                • librtifirst

                  Its close now. Parents being arrested for spanking, insurance mandates until they are 26, schools telling them to spy on their parents and report it, children collecting child support while they are in college, ……………….. It’s insane. Mine are grown, and I am glad for it. Government wants reduced populations, and I know of people who aren’t having kids partially because of all of this. They say that children in China boss their parents around, because of the one child policy.

                • kong1967

                  I was actually referring to the welfare recipients being the children (dependants) and the tax payers being the parents (supporters). However, you are right on with everything you said….and they wonder why there’s no respect or discipline among the current youth. I fear what this country will look like in 20 years.

    • warpmine

      Unions certainly won’t make education cheaper by any means. If he’s referring to the post public school system he and his fiends occupy then that won’t get any cheaper until competition for real education reappears. As long as government is holding the purse strings, it will be same old crap.

      • kong1967

        Yep, unfortunately.

          Not willingly. But as they, themselves, have seen, their approach in dealing with Obama has cost them dearly in ratings, support and the all important criteria, money. Little by little, they are putting out snippets of real journalism, and the crack in the dike is getting bigger and bigger, as the ‘little Dutch boys’ of the administration fail to plug those holes.

    It’s great to hear Candy to repeat the question over and over lately when her guests don’t answer them (“What’s your new plan?”), and then to offer a conclusion (“So you don’t have a new plan – it’s stay the course”.”) based on their non-answer for them to confirm.

    CNN would be in better shape if more of their reporters did this.

      If they decide to put Romney in this time around, I wonder how long it will take the right to go sour on him? The first year generally is a give away. Lots of excuses, and blaming the other side. I would love to see republicans take the house and senate, and have Romney in. Nothing substantial would happen, and the right might be forced to reject the whole bunch of them as the power elite who are shutting down this country. Maybe that is why Rand is coming out in support of the establishment GOP. If we still have elections in 2016, they might just put him up as the appeaser.

      It’s going to be 5 more months of this. It’s literally “all they got”. Obama’s only chance of winning is by convincing people that, if he gets elected, everyone gets a unicorn that farts money.

      He already tried the “Romney wants you to die cold and hungry after a lifetime of honest labor in his sweatshops” route, but the focus groups didn’t buy it.

    Well that should be no surprise that the agenda in the first term will be the same in the second term.

    “The question that I really thought was excellent though was when Crowley asked Plouffe why they think they can accomplish these goals in another term if they weren’t able to accomplish them in the first term.” WITH A MAJORITY IN CONGRESS!!

    God help us all. Five trillion in teachers penions coming due. How will we pay for that?

      They don’t intend to. All pensions will fail, right along with the stock market and our currency. Greek style austerity should kick in soon, if the collapse doesn’t happen first.

    Could Crowley be waking up or is she just upset that the donuts truck didn’t stop?

    Fluffy and the rest of Obama’s sycophants, by staying away from conservative media, have been able to hide how foolish and intellectually challenged they really are. When their friends, like CNN,
    decide to actually ask them real questions, what we’ve all known about
    these guys is finally revealed for all to see. They’re idiots. Plouffe looked like a deer caught in the headlights. Probably the first time he’s ever had to answer a real question, and he can’t handle it. I don’t know what’s with CNN lately, but I hope they keep it up.

    If you think Obama did a good job in the first four years, vote to reelect him. If you don’t think he did, vote against him. It’s that simple in every incumbent election. Politicians don’t “change” their ideology.

    “We’ve cut taxes for the average, middle-class family by $3600.”

    And median household income (that would be those same average, middle-class families) has gone down $4000.

    So let’s see…

    3600 – 4000 = -400

    Translation “I just took $400 dollars from you and now I want you to thank me for it.”

    blah,blah,blah. This guy isn’t persuading anyone. Why do they send him out there? He doesn’t have the ability to connect or convince. These people are destroying the Democrat party. They came into power with the house AND the Senate. They coulndn’t sustain or build on the coalition. They are not smart politically. Like bulls in a china shop. Four and a half more months!!

  • lyndaaquarius

    fast talking blah blah blah. These are not politically astute people. Remember they came into power with the House AND the Senate. They did not have the smarts to maintain and build upon the coalition. Didn’t know how to finesse it. They blew it. Bulls in a china shop. Millions of us are counting the days!! They will Not get their way.
