David Shuster Asks "You Made an Equivalency Between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, Do You Really Want to Stand By That?" - Video 10/27/09

Here is video of John McCormack from "The Weekly Standard" on MSNBC debating the media's bias and whether or not Obama is getting a free pass.

David Shuster showed his bias from the start by asking "how about the context in all of this? I mean it's not like President Obama took the nation to war under false pretenses, so maybe to the extent the current president gets a pass there's some context involved."

John McCormack pointed out the media's bias in the coverage of Sarah Palin and Barack Obama's experience during the campaign. Right before the end of the video Shuster asked McCormack "You made an equivalency between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, do you really want to stand by that?"

There is no equivalency, of course: Sarah Palin is far superior to Barack Obama. ook at their career highlights.

Sarah won Miss Wasilla and came in third in the prestigious and highly competitive Miss Alaska contest.

Obama merely got an undergraduate degree from Columbia University.

Sarah attended a broad spectrum of colleges (four in all; one -- the University of Idaho -- twice) and received her undergraduate degree in journalism.

Obama only received a law degree, with honors, from some place called Harvard, whatever that is.

Sarah had a career in TV sports broadcasting before entering politics.

Obama was just a "community organizer" and never aspired to be on ESPN.

Sarah was elected to the Wasilla City Council and eventually Mayor of Wasilla!

Obama was only elected to the Illiois State Legislature.

Sarah was elected Governor of Alaska and served almost two and a half years.

Obama was only elected U.S. Senator from Illinois and served only four years.

Sarah was selected to be the Republican Party's Vice Presidential nominee in 2008.

Obama wasn't even named the Democratic Party's Vice Presidential nominee.

Sarah finished second in the 2008 election.

Obama didn't finish second.

No comparison whatsoever!

Gimme a break. Obama has had the EASIEST frickin press coverage of ANY President EVER.

If you don't see it, you're head is still up Obama's butt 11 months after you elected him.

Obama was ONLY in the church of Rev Wright for 20 years.

Obama's book was ONLY ghost written by Bill Ayers.

Obama ONLY associated with known terrorists or people outside the societal norm.

Obama ONLY appoints people who are also outside the societal norm and who believe that Chairman Mao was a great thinker, that Communism and Socialism is good, that we need "fairness" in the media, that free-markets are nonsense....

Obama is ONLY a child in the political world where his biggest accomplishment was voting present in the IL senate. (As an IL resident I still question what if anything he actualy accomplished her).

Obama ONLY got elected with white guilt, thugs and ACORN.

Obama ONLY wants to take more money away from people with bad Stimulus bills, cap and trade and "public option" health care. ALL of which will ADD to the deficit.

Obama only wants to tag FOX as a non-news organization. Who will be next? MSNBC? They have the same mix, just that they are liberals.....

Obama only wants to bow down and tell the world that America is a bad place.

So you tell me who is better? I would rather have a woman in office who knew how to kill a moose herself, who ran a city and a state rather than a black/white man who has done neither and barely did anything while he was a local, state Senator.

Hopefully my post was ONLY as long as yours.

So the cadaverous daily beastie has a problem with the Bush Adm paying Armstrong Williams to promote "No Child Left Behind" but she has no problem with U2's Bono benefiting financially by promoting the Bush Adm's HIV/AIDS policy for Africa and the Caribbean?

What the Bush Adm did is no different from 0bama doling out billions of tax dollars to ACORN, Van Jones' green projects, AmeriCorps, Planned Parenthood, etc, etc, etc to promote its policies. Does daily beastie honestly believe ABC News didn't benefit financially when 0bama gave them a special 2 hour access at the White House on June 24th 2009 to promote his health care plan?

The claim of a double standard has merit.

Yes Sarah Palin is far superior to 0bama.

While 0bama was taking full advantage of Affirmative Action, SHE was not only building her political career but gave birth to five children along the way.

BTW, interesting that degrees from "some place called" Harvard and "some place called" Yale, "whatever that is" wasn't viewed as much of an accomplishment when Bush did it. But since 0bama went to Harvard its a huge accomplishment. Can you say DOUBLE STANDARD? *lol*

How illustrative of Sarah's "accomplishments" that her supporters cite her ability to kill a moose "herself!" as a major selling point for her candidacy.

Watch out, there's a sequel in the works: "Mrs. Moose Killer Goes to Washington". Or maybe "Caribou Barbie Shrugged".

The media covered for 0bama on every single gaff, 57 states, 10,000 people killed, etc., and his rambling, stumbling speaking style when he's off the teleprompter, his "beyond my pay grade" statement, Rev Wright, his "typical white person" remark. If they had subjected
0bama to half of what they subjected Palin to, he never would have won the nomination.

Sarah kills moose and Obama kills flies. Who's has the more impressive skill set!

Anonymous,  October 27, 2009 at 11:28 PM  

Ten months in and swatting a fly is 0bama's one and only fait accompli thus far, that and "dithering" about a Troops surge for Afghanistan.

Give him a Nobel Peace Prize, Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, Tony and every other performance award known to man for THAT illustrative "accomplishment".

That is really funny to say "Sarah kills moose and Obama kills flies. Who's has the more impressive skill set"! I think there is some kind of truth.
