They Are Out Of Control

I know, utterances voiced over at MSNBC are not worth the breath to discuss it, not worth wasting the 3 seconds it takes to properly evaluate it as nonsense, or even to throw it on the alter of rational discourse. Dismissing it as empty noise is the easy part, but when the Romney campaign gets sidetracked by one of their rants, we all want to tell them to don’t fall for it, to keep on message, that being the economy and why this president is a dismal failure.

Take a look at the latest over at the gutter network:

I have never seen this guy before, but the woman refuting the nonsense is S.E. Cupp, what the hell is she doing over at that network?

Racist rants is discussion de jour, the status quo over there and normally it would not get any play, who cares what crazy people say? But Romney got sucked in:

The Mitt Romney campaign is privately addressing a racially-charged attack from MSNBC host Touré, sources say.
Speaking to Breitbart News, a Romney spokesperson stated, “We are discussing this matter with network executives at MSNBC.”

Why? By placing himself inside the circle jerk, he gives it oxygen and airtime, come on Mitt, you are being played.

I ran a post last week about CNN and how other cable news networks are dvying up the numbers. MSNBC had way more viewers then I would have imagined, but these are all hardcore lefty viewers, the Keith Obermann/Rachael Madow rejects who’s vote is already determined. This goofball is essentially preaching to the choir, so if he wants to foment non existent racial hatred, and find klansmen under his bed at every turn, who cares, right? I mean if a race baiter falls down in the forest, does anyone other then racists themselves hear him fall?

The only harm I can see is if this Toure clown is allowed on other networks, ones where there might exist an independent viewer, and he is allowed to do his racists rants, you know the MSM would would not call him out on any of what he says.

Mitt and his crew have to be smarter then this. Distraction is all they the DNC has. They certainly are not going to run on his record or the issues of the day, demonizing the opposition and the personal attacks will only intensify. Keep on message and hit those bullet points, the worst recovery in 70 years, the highest poverty rates in 50 years, 8.3% unemployment, $16 trillion in debt, the president that ruined our credit rating, 100 million on public assistance, a diminished America, that is what another 4 years will look like.

Isn’t it ironic, the post racial president who was going to bring us all together, he has actually set race relations back 20 years. Is there any criticisms of this man that can’t be blanketed and marginalized by his apologists as racist?

    I love the part toward the end where he says this whole line of thought (that the whole GOP is racist, using the “dog whistle” stuff) isn’t just his… but that scholars have shown this to be true.

    Heh… “scholars”

    Riiiiight.

    It’s just the flip side of Obama and company getting all worked up over Limbaugh and/or FOX News. All they’ve done is decided to give them the air time they were begging for.

    Toure is simply a liar. He has his schtick, he is, apparently, the go to guiy to trot out racial accusations, and off her goes. See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZdTk4InmA4

    Everyone remember that? I used it last year to discuss media bias with my students.

    I also love how the other host has to step in and defend him How condescending! It’s almost like she doesn’t think that a black man can articulate his own thoughts and so has to help him out.

    Did you bring up the fact that the guy carrying the AR was apparently African-American?

    Not that you’de know that from watching the MSNBC footage.

    As for Mr. Toure, the guy’s an idiot, plain and simple. Search his name on Youtube, and by and large it’s full of him making stupid comments. I’m with Rich, the Romney campaign should have ignored the idiot completely. Cupp did a great job of pointing out how idiotic his statement was.

    How condescending! It’s almost like she doesn’t think that a black man can articulate his own thoughts and so has to help him out.

    Do you believe then, that if a white guy or gal had said something as stupid she would not have stepped in to try and save her segment?

    This is what cheeses me about so much cable news on both sides of the equation. So much time and effort manufacturing outrage when a little common sense and intelligetn inference would allow time for real comparisons about real issues with these candidates.

    i.e. – When Romney said corporations are people he meant they are made up of living human beings all the caterwauling around that statement was stupid.

    Obama did not mean business owners do not grow their own businesses.

    Biden was not talking about the enslavement of blacks with his chains remark.

    Being angry is not a dog whistle for racists.

    I don’t know whether to be sick of the rampant dis-ingenuousness or fearful for the actual stupidity of mankind.

    Yet in an effort to “publish or die” we have this post.

    I’m with Rich, the Romney campaign should have ignored the idiot completely. Cupp did a great job of pointing out how idiotic his statement was.

    Please explain how “the Romney campaign” could have ignored him as S.E. Cupp was sitting right at the same table with this race-bating fool?
