It’s ironic that the liberal media has been so quick to label this debt debacle as some sort of Tea Party “victory.” Reports have surfaced saying that Vice President Biden referred to the Tea Party members of Congress as “terrorists” trying their best to derail the economy. All the while the media claims the President was somehow bullied by the Tea Party.
Bullied? Really? Is this not the same Tea Party that the media has had oodles of fun mocking and belittling in the past?
This is quite a spin seeing as there aren’t any members of Congress praising this deal, especially Tea Party members. Since the facts clearly don’t add up, one has to question – why is the media painting the false picture that the Tea Party is somehow running the show?
According to Glenn, it’s a set up.
On radio this morning, Glenn played clips of various members of Congress and the media commentating on the debt crisis. One in particular was the comments of Martin Bashir.
“What these facts tell us is that this (inaudible) about raising the debt ceiling has done nothing for ordinary Americans. The behavior of an extremist group of ideologues in the house has prolonged and exacerbated an issue that should have been resolved months ago,” Bashir said.
He went on to claim that these extremists or “hobits,” as he refers to them as, “won and the country lost” – whatever that means.
Congressman Hank Johnson (D-Georgia) also provided his own insight.
“And these Tea Partiers, in as willing conspirators with their so‑called leadership, have enacted on a plan to dismantle the American government,” Johnson said. “And in the process we have lost our moral compass.”
“We've lost our moral compass? Gang, this is all a game,” Glenn responded. “The Tea Party has been set up. This is not something that the Tea Party wants. If you're excited about this bill, please explain why. I'd like to know.”
“And they are going to blame this on us like it was a really, really good deal for the Tea Party. It's not a good deal for the Tea Party,” Glenn continued.
Once again this is a case of the liberals and media picking on everyone’s favorite scapegoat in an attempt to save face.
“You just have to understand that a game is being played in the media and the only way to win, watch Wargames, the only way to win is to not play the game,” Glenn warned.
“Don't play the game. Don't play the game. It's a setup.”
