These clowns may have been able to get away with this crap back during the Lewinsky scandal, but there’s an army of bloggers out there nowadays, not to mention Fox News dominating cable news. The left can no longer control the narrative, but they’ll still try.
Prior to Bernard’s spin, Politico’s Jake Sherman warned: “There are elements, significant elements within House Republican leadership, that think this is a really bad message. The economy is struggling. Obama’s numbers are not where he wants them to be. So why get off message? That’s what some people, high-ranking aides and even lawmakers in the House Republican conference, are telling us.”
Following Bernard, fill-in host Luke Russert concluded that the President even welcomed the congressional confrontation: “It’s another dynamic of Obama versus Congress. Which is a fight that he’s actually wanted.”
I doubt his father would have been so naive.
