Obama Aide: With These
Republicans, There’d
Still Be Slavery

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 10:24:31 AM

Chuck Todd relayed the comments of an Obama aide on Monday morning’s ‘Morning Joe’ on MSNBC: CHUCK TODD: You’re going to like this. So, I threw the Lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said, ‘You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there’d still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn’t have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this–’ It was an interesting and depressing observation from this very smart White House aide.

Comments:
This is just breathtaking. As has been stated many times before, "journalism" is dead. This is the entire article.

Chuck doesn´t know his history. Historically the dems ssupported slavery and were against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Just ask Al Gore, Sr.

This is a bizarre twisting to say the least, since it was the Democrats who gave us the KKK and the Republicans who put an end to slavery. Well, with four decades of history revision in government run public schools, who´s to know the difference?

The Dems own the modern welfare plantation and minorities bow to "da massah."

They really can´t help it, it is what they are. The bigger problem is the fact that it seems like EVERY Republican in DC is OK with being a punching bag for the media/Democrats. This failure to define themselves or strike back when slandered is a big part of where we are. I understand that many may rightly feel that things are so far gone in the culture that saying anything won´t really matter or that no one will report it. On the other hand aren´t any of them angry that a smug team of propagandists feel comfortable saying things like this? There isn´t ONE Republican who makes the effort to confront Todd or MSNBC or the White House over this slimy comment? I wish the Republican party had more Allen West and less Rence/Rove.

Once Todd decided to make mention of the supposed White House aide´s comment, he should have identified the White House aide by name, as who knows if a White House aide really said what Todd said was said, or if Todd a known liberal Democrat hack, did not just make it all up to make himself look good to the liberal Democrats.

Anyway, historically it was the Democrats who supported slavery, not the Republicans.

Obviously since today´s republician´s are spinless they wouldn´t have been able to beat the southern Democrats durning the Civil War to end slavery. The Democrats would have won and the US would be no more.

...when is someone going to stand up to these facists and say "NO! it is YOUR party that is the party of slavery. Modern progressive slavery, addicting millions of blacks to victimhood, EBT cards, Obamaphones, welfare, unemployment and hatred all to aggrandize ensure power of your party! You only use these folks as props and tools to seed your power! YOU are the racist." Fight back!

Actually there is still slavery but not the type he´s referring to. Those in bondage are the ´Makers´, the workers in America paying extremely high taxes for the corruption of this administration and the entire Dimocratic party. I guess it´s OK since those slaves are working to make ends meet and are being stabbed in the back as they work harder and harder to offset the outright theft of our government and taxes!

How smart are you when you exhibit such ignorance about the Republican Party and the end of slavery. Who passed the three constitutional amendments to end slavery? It took constitutional conservatives in the Republican Party to do that. Many of today´s Republicans are constitutional conservatives. How many are there in this White House?

‘You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there’d still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn’t have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this–’" - Article

Is that so? This "aide" doesn´t know history. Last evening I saw the new film, "Lincoln". Over and over again, the movie portrayed the Democratic Party as the obstacle to passing the 13th Amendment. It could not have been clearer. I have to wonder what any Democrats watching the movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, might have been thinking, because they could not have missed it.

To be expected from a WH that must keep America divided racially to have any chance at weilding power. Also to be expected is the inane cheer leading by malevolent leftists at MSNBC.

Nobody in America today supports slavery - especially the one major party in our country that supports freedom, AKA Republicans.

Had the current Democrats been around during the time of Lincoln, they would have been laughed out of every election in every corner of the country - North and South. Nobody anywhere would have supported the current Democrats love of dictatorial government, their guilt in bankrupting the country, and their role in destroying the family as an important institution.

A moron having a discussion with an idiot, but it is MSNBC what else can you expect.

With their hero "Zero" programs and policies there will be slavery in America by 2016. It will be the slavery of the American young to the federal governments incompetence, corruption and debt. The next generation or two will never see the freedoms that America once stood for and will believe that the stories that their parents told them were just that Stories.

Sorry #10 that I don´t meet your standards, but unless the ´loyal opposition´ gets it in gear it is not just over for them as a party, it is over for all of us. My frustration is the 12 years of Republicans being lead by the nose by people as petty as Chris Matthews. Their failure to respond, explain or advocate paved the way for the worst President any of us have ever seen, TWICE. I vote for all of them, but even when they win, the Republicans somehow manage to lose, as in the case of Franken and probably Romney. So yeah, they need some criticism. Pretending they aren´t inept doesn´t convince anyone.

#18, that´s what this is all about - the truth presented in the Spielberg film must be offset by this Administration and their fellow travellers distinguishing between "this Republican" (these Republicans), and Lincoln era Republicans.

Today´s Republicans are, to "the masses", whatever leftists say they are, and will remain so until Republicans begin defining themselves instead of letting leftists do it. That means, Republicans are racist haters who want blacks "back in chains".

Those accusations may seem ridiculous to us, but, they are truth to the indoctrinated.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
