Trunkline 2012: Thursday’s News from the Race for the White House – 9/29/11

Bookmark and Share    Today the campaign trail takes us to an invitation to Morgan Freeman from the TEA Party, to the reality of President Obama’s numbers and looks into who is benefiting from Rick Perry’s drop in the polls, Michele Bachmann’s sermon at Liberty University, Romney’s lead in Florida, a statement from the Party chairmen of disgruntled Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina Republicans, and some opinions on why Romney will win the nomination and how Perry can win the nomination.

  1. I need help here-has the New York Post become the Enquirer? Are “sources” their title for “whatever we want to make up?”

    And I quote:

    “The renewed consideration about a White House run came after prodding this week from some Republicans he idolizes, including former First Lady Nancy Reagan, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and former President George W. Bush, sources said.”

    With all due respect, Nancy Reagan is not her husband, and I say, “run, run like the wind” from anyone this group endorses and, adding to the disaster, later in the article “sources” claim Laura Bush gets in the mix.

    Talk about inside the loop, establishment elite types. I wonder where this is all coming from and I wonder about the intent of this spin.

    These are not conservative endorsements, if they were ever actually made.

    Is that your point- the media won’t give up and keeps making this stuff up?

    • I totally understand what you’re sayin’. Who is or isn’t conservative is debateable, but I will say that the spouses of the political establishmentarians really do have little effect here. But most of all, as for the question…”-has the New York Post become the Enquirer?”, I believe the answer is yes. This is not reporting, it is simply gossip. That ain’t journalism!
