Bashir the Basher Polluting the Air at MSNBC

Martin Barshir

Martin Bashir of MSNBC has taken on a new role – deciding who goes to hell or not. We caught this candid shot of him and can see why he thinks he should make such a decision.

Bashir the Basher went on a petty rant befitting the MSNBC gossip channel. Playing the role of God, he damned Mitt Romney to Hell for alleged lies.

Basher compared Mormonism to a cult though it is clearly a religion. How would he, as a Muslim, like people to call his religion a cult? Mitt Romney spent 2 1/2 years doing missionary work as part of his schooling. He’s lived an exemplary life. Who is Martin Bashir to condemn his religion as a cult! Would he, as a Muslim, like us to talk about the atrocities his religious colleagues are committing?

Then he talked about a petty error that could happen to anyone over a no-never-mind issue – did Ted Nugent ask Romney or did Romney ask Nugent to be part of the campaign. So, who cares?

As Bashir spends his every waking moment attacking the right and, Romney in particular, as do Bashir’s lefty colleagues at MSNBC, he claims there is no left wing conspiracy in a media statistically overrun by left zealots according to Pew Research. The only station that isn’t out to get Romney is Fox.

Contrary to what the mendacious Martin is saying, Obama did send the message that he would keep unemployment below 8% via Christina Romer and he let that stand as he forced his stimulus through under the threat of a dire emergency even though the bill read like a welfare and union payoff bill.

In a report by Christina Romer, Obama’s chairwoman of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, and Jared Bernstein, the vice president’s top economic adviser, they projected that Obama’s stimulus plan without the stimulus would rise to a peak of 9% in 2010. With the stimulus the report predicted the unemployment would peak at 8% in 2009.

This report with the usual caveats, signaled that Obama’s stimulus would keep unemployment to 8%, not just to conservatives, but also to the Washington Post, which wrote the following –

“Before passage of the stimulus bill, the Obama administration had predicted that unemployment would peak at 8 percent before beginning to abate this fall. But unemployment has already reached 9.4 percent, the highest level in a quarter-century, and the situation is not projected to start improving until long after the White House had predicted.”

The report was published a little less than a month before Obama’s stimulus speech and they were meant to coincide. Only a dope would think otherwise. Obama said in his stimulus speech that it would put 3 million people to work which would have kept the unemployment rate below 8%. He promised jobs, jobs, jobs.
