Andrea Mitchell Visibly
Shocked After Sununu Calls
Obama ‘Lazy,’ Asks Him If
He Would Take It Back

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/4/2012 3:09:47 PM

Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell on Thursday where she asked for the surrogate’s impression of Mitt Romney performed at Wednesday night’s presidential debate. The conversation quickly devolved when Sununu opted to instead critique President Barack Obama’s performance, calling him “lazy” and “disengaged.” Mitchell was visibly taken aback by the criticisms and asked Sununu if he wanted to apologize for that remark. Sununu did not take that opportunity. (Snip) Mitchell asked Sununu how he thought Mitt Romney did in the debates, but rather than praise Romney, Sununu

Comments:
The look on Mitchell's face is absolutely priceless. She looks like she just ate a bad oyster. I'm loving every single minute of this. It's a wonder Mitchell didn't call him a racist because he said 0bama was lazy. That may happen yet. You know them so well.

Sununu should have added, "Yes, I said 'lazy' ... just like your husband when he was chairman of the Fed. He took the easy way out rather than address the issues at hand."

Obama's refusal to take the debate seriously is typical of sociopaths - as is his habit of smirking when being criticized - sociopaths have an unrealistic opinion of themselves.

To use Robert Ruark's colorful phrase, Zero is "as lazy as a dead pig in the sunshine." Andrea Mitchell, a gullible political grouper if ever there were one, has swallowed the hook baited with Obama's phony résumé all the way down into her viscera, and there's no dislodging that hook. Put her in the ice chest and ready that fillet knife.

So Mitch, if you don't like Sununu's answer, don't ask. But wait, that takes away loads of our fun. Never mind--keep asking dumb, loaded questions and we'll all put on the popcorn and enjoy the show!

Ex-CIA boss Morell gives unorthodox

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Facing withering pressure to stick with the president and block any GOP effort to change Obamacare, 18 Democrats crossed the aisle to join Republicans Thursday in replacing the 30-hour work week with the traditional 40 hours, a major boost to small businesses. Voting 248-179, the House passed Indiana Republican Rep. Todd Young’s “Save American Workers Act,” which repealed Obamacare’s 30-hour definition of full-time employment. Going into the vote, Young had nine Democrats supporting the legislation and in the end 18 joined to define a work week as 40 hours. Democratic leaders leveled intense pressure on members to stick with President Obama’s preference

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – A city board on Thursday gave a Muslim group the go-ahead to remove six crosses from the roof and spires of a century-old former Catholic church so the now-vacant Gothic structure can be used as a mosque. More than 200 people had signed an online petition calling on the Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board to deny an application by North Side Learning Center, the church´s new owner, to remove the crosses and build a six-foot chain-link fence. Before the vote to allow the church alterations, Chairman Don Radke said the board cannot interfere with a decision that involves

There has been outrage in the U.S. over Iran’s bid to have one of the hostage takers who stormed the American Embassy in Tehran serve as its ambassador to the UN in New York. Twenty-nine Republican senators have written to President Obama urging him to deny a visa to Hamid Aboutalebi, who was a member of a Muslim student group that took over the Embassy in 1979 and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. The State Department says it’s “troubled” by the move, but has not said if it will refuse Aboutalebi a visa. Now Aboutalebi has found support

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
