Default Obama/GE Scandal to Make Watergate Look Like Shirley Temple Movie.

[YOUTUBE]jDn1S-DwGm4[/YOUTUBE]

Quote:
Talking Points Memo & Top Story
Will GE get paid for supporting Obama?
"General Electric, which owns NBC, has been very aggressive in supporting President Obama. There is also emerging evidence that GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt and NBC News chief Jeff Zucker told CNBC personnel to stop criticizing Obama's economic policies. In addition, the hateful MSNBC network continues to air vicious attacks, such as when actress Janeane Garofalo called 'tea party' protesters 'racists.' This week Factor producer Jesse Watters attended the GE shareholder meeting and asked Immelt about Garofalo's comments. When Immelt said MSNBC 'has standards,' he was roundly booed. Most CEOs would have stopped NBC's corruption a long time ago, but Immelt may be looking for a major payoff. According to the Washington Examiner, GE is lobbying the Obama administration for bailout money. The company is also pushing for the 'cap and trade' program and would manage billions of dollars should that carbon tax pass Congress. Think about this: A failing corporation may reap billions of dollars if the feds okay the carbon deal. So it's not a stretch to assume that Immelt would want to help President Obama as much as possible. It is a major story when a powerful corporation may be using its power and the airwaves to influence politics in order to make money from government contracts. That kind of corruption would make Watergate look small."

Fox News analyst Laura Ingraham entered the No Spin Zone with her take on the General Electric story. "I'm thinking about how the left," Ingraham said, "turned itself inside and out about Halliburton during the Iraq war. Well, if this story is true, we have a situation where GE is set to make hundreds of millions of dollars off this cap and trade bill. At MSNBC, when they report on these stories, the viewers should know that GE is set to benefit handsomely from this program going through. I'd like to hear from all those high-minded journalism professors." The Factor stressed the magnitude of this allegation. "If this is true, this is an abuse of power that we've never seen before here in America. It's staggering."
Will GE get paid for supporting Obama?

How about instead of trying to crucify Bush with a so called " truth commission" lets dig a little deeper into this. And why is it that the main stream media isn't reporting on this.

Wait a second! NBC was criticizing Obama?

When?

Where?

Why would anyone pay NBC to stop doing something they weren't doing in the first place?

Once again... Tony mocks and spoofs, instead of dealing with ANYTHING in the actual thread...

Its getting a little sad watching Tony become a caricature of his former self in the political threads.

Well, what would YOU do if your job was to defend a guy who's clearly out of his league and in over his head?
