Morning Briefing: Enemy Collaborators


RedState Morning Briefing
For September 18, 2012

1. Treat the Press as Enemy Collaborators
"So how do you feel about your new position with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL)?" asked Media Bistro of Jonathan Allen. "Certainly excited. I'm happy to go to work for someone who inspires me and who I admire. I'm hopeful I can advance the Democratic Party's goals and obviously, the congresswoman's goals," Jonathan Allen replied.

Jonathan Allen is now the Politico's senior Washington correspondent.

This is the week when Democrats and the Arab street both erupted in frenzies over otherwise obscure YouTube videos, with our media tripping over itself to provide excuses for both. . . . please click here for the rest of the post

2. What A Tangled Web We Weave. The Administration's Benghazi Story Unravels.
As the Administration struggles to pin the foreseeable outcome of our bonkers Middle East policy, the sacking of two diplomatic missions and the slaughter of at least four diplomatic personnel, on a YouTube video, the truth begins to trickle out.

The first substantial fissure appears today.

3. Mitt Romney, Friend in Need
The Obama campaign has spent months laboring to get this election to be about anything but the president's record and the candidates' policy proposals. As often happens in campaigns, this requires painting caricatures with no connection to the facts. The Obama camp has worked hard to make Mitt Romney out as a bad, unfeeling, cold-hearted rich guy who only cares about his own bottom line. Romney himself hasn't helped the matter by being such a stiff, tin-eared speaker who actually looks and sounds like a walking stereotype; political communication is not among his skills. But the reality . . . please click here for the rest of the post

4. Foreign Media: US Foreign Policy under Obama in Ruins
For all the talk of how amazing and respected Barack Obama is in international circles, foreign media outlets fairly often end up doing the kind of reporting one might hope the American media would do on him. Yes, while the American media was busy manufacturing outrage over a Romney statement that was essentially right, foreign outlets were doing real reporting.

I'll start off with the German magazine Der Spiegel, which enjoys a level of respect similar to that accorded to TIME here. It has done some of the best work, rounding up what that country's press has been saying. After assessing the situation . . . please click here for the rest of the post

5. Obama's U.N. Ambassador misleads America about Libya; earns two Pinocchios
Susan Rice, Obama's ambassador to the United Nations, appeared on several of the Sunday morning news shows and mislead the American people by claiming the vicious attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, was unplanned and provoked only by an anti-Islam video.

On CBS's "Face the Nation," Libya's head of state, Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf, president of Libya's General National Congress, said that the attack on the U.S. Consulate was "preplanned, predetermined." You can watch . . . please click here for the rest of the post

6. John Kerry Is An Ignoramus. But You Knew That.
To me one of the most amazing traits of the Democrat party is its insistence on promoting to positions of power and authority utter nincompoops and then expecting everyone to ignore the fact that they are nincompoops. Cases in point: Alan Grayson (D-FL) and Anthony Weiner (D-NY). One needn't have listened . . . please click here for the rest of the post
