Perhaps Michelle Obama Should Use A Teleprompter-She Screws Up Again

Perhaps its time for Michelle Obama to borrow her husband's teleprompter or if she does use one maybe it's time for an upgrade because yesterday at a campaign appearance for Mark Udall she quoted from the biography of his Republican opponent Corey Gardner.

At a campaign appearance in Denver on Thursday night Mrs. Obama referred to Senator Mark Udall of Colorado who was born in Arizona, as a “fifth-generation Coloradan.” Obviously Udall doesn't fit into the 5th generation category but his opponent does. That  phrase that appears in the online versions of both the congressional and campaign biographies of Representative Cory Gardner.

“As a fifth-generation Coloradan, Mark understands what makes this state special,” Mrs. Obama said. “He understands the values of independence and fairness — all the things here folks believe in.”
Recently the first lady botched the name of Iowa Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley throughout a campaign appearance. And during her next Iowa appearance someone in her office sent out the transcript claiming that Braley was running for Governor instead of Senator.

Maybe from now on she can say "Vote for Good Ole Whatshisface" Who is running for "office."

Newsbusted: Economists Predict A 3rd Obama Term Would Result in Free Gasoline

Even though it is prohibited by the Constitutions economists have looked at the trends and predict that if Obama was allowed a third term gasoline would be free. As explained by Newsbusted Anchor Jodie Miller (see video below) the recent drop in gasoline prices is a result of the weak economy which leads to people purchasing less gas causing a buildup of supply. These economists questioned by Ms Miller believe an additional four years of Obama's economic policy would damage the economy and build up the supply to such a great extent that gasoline would be given away.

Other news items covered in the latest installment of Newsbusted the twice- weekly faux news feature from (embedded below) include; Chris Matthews and MSNBC's low ratings; the Midterm elections; Bruce Jenner; and much, much more.

Please make sure you watch the video below because something bad always happens to the people who don't. Last week Jeanne Shaheen forgot to press play and yesterday she had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Debate. So if you don't want your campaign to fall apart you better press play.

Jeanne Shaheen And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Debate

If Jeanne Shaheen’s goal in her debate with Scott Brown today was to create more material for Brown's campaign ads she had a great night.  But assuming the incumbent Democrat wants to win her reelection campaign it was a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Debate. 

In a rare moment of candor, Jeanne Shaheen admitted that she and every other Democratic senator on the ballot this fall was the deciding vote for ObamaCare. And as if that wasn’t a big enough problem on its own, Shaheen said she was proud of her record of supporting President Obama 99 percent of the time and waffled on whether she wanted the President to come campaign for her....Yikes... watch her multiple gaffes below.

Jeanne Shaheen Admits She Was The “Deciding Vote” For ObamaCare

Jeanne Shaheen: I’m “Proud” Of My 99% Voting Record With Obama

NBC's Chuck Todd Partners With Media Matters To Attack Fox News

The new host of "Meet The Press," Chuck Todd, criticized Fox News, claiming that they have an “obsession” with finding media bias in every story. Todd also believes Fox straight news anchors interview conservatives without any balance from the other side.

Most interesting was the venue which Todd chose to bash Fox News, the progressive propaganda site funded by George Soros, Media Matters For America. Almost one hundred percent of Media Matters' content is dedicated to trashing Fox News. Todd is no dummy he knew exactly what he was doing and where he was doing it.

In the interview Todd claimed he's had a politically diverse range of guests on his show. When the Media Matters interviewer mentioned some Sunday shows balancing conservatives with news reporters, Todd said he doesn’t do that; it's a “Fox phenomenon” because they have an agenda.

Media Matters: And how about when you have group discussions that feature a partisan conservative commentator matched up with a news reporter? There seems to be a working assumption that a straight news reporter will balance --
Todd: I haven't done that.

Media Matters: No, in a lot of the Sunday shows.

Todd: I can't -- I mean people that do that -- that's a Fox phenomenon. That's not a -- Fox may do that, but that's their -- they have an agenda. You know what I mean? I don't do that. I don't believe in that. If I've got a right-leaning voice, I need a left-leaning voice. Now, I think a bigger problem is -- I think that all the shows need to reflect -- it's like, we go through this diversity checklist, right?
Perhaps Todd has never watched MSNBC, where he hosted a daily show. That network rarely has a guest offering the conservative perspective. As for Fox News, they usually have at least one leftist guest to debate the conservative guests.

Todd blasted Fox News in particular and how they have, in his words, an obsession and fixation on the subject of media bias:
Media Matters: So what do you think is the role of Fox? Do they do it right? Do they do something wrong? What do they do right and wrong?

Todd: I again, I think their obsession with always -- I think it's amusing to me, their obsession with trying to make everything about media bias. Whatever story, whatever angle, whatever stories is out there, there's always some sort of supposed media-bias angle to it. And I'm like, "Aren't they the number one media -- news media outlet on cable?" So my concern, frankly, is less about the media organizations and more about the group think that's taking place with the populace. I think citizens -- too many citizens are only getting news from one place and not understanding the other side. Look, I want Meet the Press to be a place that hard-core conservatives and hard-core progressives feel like they can get a better understanding of things, as well as moderates, pragmatists, whatever you wanna call 'em. Everybody's got a different name for them. Wishy-washy people, right, if you think they don't stand up for their principles enough. Whatever it is. But that's a challenge in these times. I think more and more people are gravitating toward their comfort zones politically and ideologically, and I think that that is reinforcing the negative perception on the press and journalism.
Todd neglected to mention the recent Robert Morris University survey which stated:
Fox News was named by 18.4% of all respondents as the one most trusted for accurate and objective reporting. Fox News was followed by CNN as the most trusted (14.1%) as well as ABC News (7.5%), local broadcasts (7.0%) and NBC News (6.9%).
The same study reported "by nearly a four-to-one margin, Americans see the U.S. news media biased in favor of liberals and against conservatives at 45.7% compared to those (12.7%) seeing the news media biased in favor of conservatives and against liberals.  Few, 16.2%, noted the news media is not biased in their coverage."

In other words, Fox News may be obsessed with media bias, but as Joseph Heller wrote in his classic novel Catch-22, "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you."

Does President Obama Hate Michelle Nunn? Tells Radio Station A Nunn Win Advances His Policies

Senate Democrats are practically begging President Obama not to link their candidates to his policies. Early in October Obama said that his policies were on the ballot this fall, last week he told Al Sharpton that its OK that Democrats are running away from him because that's just to get elected, in the end they support his administration and policies. Today he tried to sabotage the candidacy of Georgia Democratic Party hopeful Michelle Nunn.

Obama was interviewed by Atlanta radio station V-103 Tuesday and told listeners that i was crucial to elect Michelle Nunn so he can continue his policies.
“These last two years I want a Congress that does work, and the only way I can do that, even though I am not on the ballot is to make sure that our people turnout to vote. … And when we do, we win. And no place is a better example than in Georgia. Michelle Nunn will win the Senate if there’s high turnout among Democrats. And if there’s low turnout, or just ordinary turnout, then she won’t win. And if Michelle Nunn wins, that means that Democrats keep control of the Senate. And that means that we can keep on doing some good work.”
