On Meet the Press this morning, Gregory began interviewing John McCain and Fred Thompson as McCain trashed Newt Gingrich, whom Thompson is supporting, and Thompson trashed Romney, whom McCain is supporting. Following this boring conversation which didn't help either candidate, Gregory interviewed David Axelrod by himself without anyone to challenge his praise of Obama.
Media sources like Meet the Press are working overtime to promote Obama and push the message that Republicans are destroying themselves while Obama is connecting with the nation with his fairness speeches. On the Meet the Press panel were Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd and Doris Kearns Goodwin. The panel was complete political spin. Goodwin said that although there have been other Presidents who were rich, they had experiences which took them out of their advantaged environment, unlike Romney. However, Romney spent time in a third world country living without the trappings of wealth as a missionary. Scarborough said that Romney has failed to explain double taxation to possible supporters, but I've heard Romney explain this on several occasions. The pundits are simply making things up to tell their own stories.
Media sources like Meet the Press are trying their best to knock down the front runner. They talk about Romney as if he's losing, but he's winning. They talk about Gingrich as if he's a threat, but he's not. They talk about Gingrich as if he's an outsider fighting the establishment, and this is the biggest lie of all --Scarborough has said this in the past, but then he gives the impression this morning that Gingrich will fight on against all odds. Ron Paul supporters are not part of the establishment, yet I doubt any of Paul's supporters would dream of supporting Gingrich. Gingrich hit a chord in South Carolina, but that was a fluke and doesn't represent the limited government, anti-establishment faction of voters who will be voting in 2012. Things are changing in America, and the pundits are lost in their old narratives and propaganda.
Romney will probably win, but he'll wind up closer to the ideas of Paul supporters than to the Republican establishment. As I said the other day, even the establishment is now anti-establishment -- no one wants to be near Big Government Republicans. Limited government pretenders will not survive. Gingrich is a joke, but media want us to think that he's a serious challenger. Things have changed, except liberal media.
