It’s The Economy Stupid? No It’s the Liberal Main Stream Media

Posted by Mark on November 8, 2006

The NY Times, purveyor of tremendous BS, has OUTDONE themselves. They are reporting that the most important thing to voters in this year’s mid-term elections was the economy.

The economy and terrorism were uppermost in the minds of voters from New England to the Great Plains to Big Sky country today as they went to the polls to decide which party will control the next Congress.

In a finding that belied the idea that “all politics is local,” voters across the country told exit pollsters that the state of the national economy was the most important issue, followed closely by terrorism and the Iraq war, for which a majority of voters expressed disapproval.

If the ‘economy’ was truly the most important issue, the Republicans would be STEAMROLLING. But wait! Every opinion poll the MSM has delivered this year shows Americans think the economy is doing poorly.

AND WHY IS THAT EINSTEIN?

Because the MSM has reported, declared, expounded, extolled, blared, and scripted everything to the contrary!

Hmmm….unemployment is at a RECORD low (4.4 %). The Stock Market is at a RECORD high (12,100+). Home ownership is at its HIGHEST ever. More Americans have more disposable income than EVER before.

If the economy was the most important issue to Americans, and it had been reported and trumpeted by the MSM without bias, prejudice, and every other negative I can think of- the Republicans would be winning in a landslide.

All the NY Times did was prove what conservatives have known all along. The NY Times and every liberal rag in the land- HAMMERED home bad news. And so Americans have bought it hook, line, and sink them.

Somewhere in their ivory towers, the liberal elites are celebrating. Well….you are to be congratulated- you pulled it off. Instead of convincing some of the people some of the time, you’ve convinced some of the people- ALL of the time.

I hope you choke on it.

UPDATE:
I wrote this late last night and my hyperlink now MAGICALLY hyperlinks to an article that makes it all about the Iraqi war and not the economy. (Gee…imagine that.) At least I captured much of the BS.

One Response to “It’s The Economy Stupid? No It’s the Liberal Main Stream Media”

    unemployment is at a RECORD low (4.4 %).

    While the unemployment rate does seem to be sinking, I think we should ask ourselves why? Are more and more people being employed in “McJobs” and “Wallyworld” because there is little else?
    Unfortunately, while the numbers are saying unemployment is low.. it does not account for what that percentage is in the minimum wage sector. I would be interested to know how many new jobs have been created for those in other brackets.

    Home ownership is at its HIGHEST ever.
    Speaking from personal point of view.. this is yet another anomaly that needs some defining I think. While home ownership is at its highest, does that correlate with the fact that home-sellers and homebuilders are taking losses in order to relieve themselves of the properties? I know that here.. getting what you ask on a house is just not happening, and my own family member is currently sitting on a brand new beautiful home for in excess of a year already, because he cannot get what he needs to get from the offers.

    I realize that for many, the media circus has become frustrating. The bias is there, no doubt, and yes.. people are buying what they are seeing hook, line and sinker. I think the challenge of most issues, is to take the time to do the homework on issues and find out what all the information is, before making a judgement.

    Last night’s landslide by the Dems in the House of Repr. is going to be distasteful to alot of Republicans, I know. That’s why I’m trying ever so hard not to gloat over the victory. Not to mention the fact, that I’ve lived long enough to learn, that no matter WHAT a politician SAYS they are going to do.. what they actually do and what they say they are going to do, are often times two different things.
    However, I do still hold the hope that the Democrats will take the Senate two remaining seats needed for majority. Why? Not because of anything other then not wishing to have an ineffective Congress. If they do not take the Senate, I wonder how ineffectual Congress will become over the next few years?
    Hopefully.. we can meet in the middle, partisan politics aside. Its time for some change, time for some new direction. While its hard.. its needed.
