The Double-Standard of ESPN on Obama criticism

Don’t be critical of Obama anywhere in your social media outlets if you work for ESPN, or you’ll be strongly chastised:

“Paul’s tweet was not consistent with our social media policy, and he has been reminded that political commentary is best left to those in that field,” spokesman Andy Hall told Game On! in a statement.

ESPN’s Hall would not comment on whether Azinger, who won the 1993 PGA Championship, will be fired, suspended or punished in some way. “We handle that internally,” he said.

Below is Paul Azinger’s tweet, with a link if you want to retweet it!


 

But does the tweet actually go against ESPN’s social media policy? Here is the entire policy for you to peruse.

“…we will hold all talent who participate in social networking to the same standards we hold for interaction with our audiences across TV, radio and our digital platforms.”

Now the policy sets out that ESPN commentators and hosts should not break news on their social media, or talk about the development of a story. It even says that if you’re going to talk about sports, you need to have it approved in written form by your ESPN supervisor! Quite a short leash they have their employees on.

UNLESS, of course, you’re critical of Capitalism and Wall Street. Kevin Blackistone is a panelist on EPSN’s “Around the Horn” show . You’ll remember Kevin – he was the crackhead who demanded we stop singing the national anthem at sports events because of the war imagery it contains.

The Bernanke from the Jackhole

Obama has his Ben in the Hole…. is it an ace or a deuce?

Or maybe both

Everyone awaits the Bernanke’s speech from the Fed’s annual symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Given the failure of Quantitative Easing 1 and QE2 to spur the economy, and our (maybe?) future president Perry’s denouncing of such fiscal chicanery for the sake of political gain, there should be no QE3 announcements.

And yet, the stock market seems to expect some good news out ol’Ben. They’ve already used the “big guns” to no effect… what more could he do?

With Nobel Prize Winning Economists Like These, Who Needs Terrorists?

(UPDATED BELOW: Krugzilla claims Hoax account!)

If you’re wondering what #KrugmanStimulus is about, take a gander at this:

In case you can’t read it:

Paul Krugman – 7:15 PM (edited) – Public

People on twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in spending and hence economic growth if the earthquake had done more damage.

 

Now there’s some question as to whether or not this is really Paul Krugman’s Google Plus account – as far as I can tell, it looks legitimate. It’s been open for a while, and he has many friends added from the liberal and intellectual elite. If it’s the case that it is his account, it has to be one of the stupidest comments made by any of Obama’s advisors. And that’s saying something.

Click on the image to go to the Google Plus post and make a comment – tell Paul what a GENIUS you think he is!! (post has been removed)

 

Now this isn’t the first time the Nobel Prize Winning Economist has made such opinions. Here’s a column he wrote after 9/11:

Obama’s Buses cost more than a Private Jet

So Obama has rolled out the “Magical Misery Tour” and has thrown all of America under the bus!

Folksy ain’t cheap, however! In fact, your government has shelled out $1.1 Million for the tour bus, and hey, while they were buying one, they went for the matching pair! (reported here)

It is perfectly reasonable for our Keynesian-in-chief to spend OUR tax money – after all, it would be very expensive for him to actually pay for his re-election campaign himself! In fact, it would have been cheaper if his campaign had bought one of those symbols of capitalist excess he loves to criticize so much – a private jet!

Here’s a nice one:

2001 white with Arista misty blue airstripes! This sweet little puppy goes for a cheap $1.75 million! Obama could have saved the taxpayer almost half a million dollars and still been a man of the people!

Now of course, Obama doesn’t need to buy a jet plane, he has Air Force One. The Republican Policy Committee outlines how Obama’s own energy policies have contributed to making either trip much more expensive. Continue reading

Byron York’s Insulting Bachmann Question

I usually like Byron York and his commentary, but the question he put forth to Michelle Bachmann was absolutely ridiculous. This is twice now that journalists on the Right have been just as unfair to Bachmann as we would expect from the Left.

The question put to her was,

In 2006 when you were running for congress you described a moment in your life when your husband said you should study for a degree in tax law. You said you hated the idea. And then you explained, ‘but the Lord said ‘be submissive. Wives you are to be submissive to your husbands.”

‘As president, would you be submissive to your husband'”

To her great credit, Bachmann was dignified and respectful to such a dishonest question.

So what purpose did this question serve?

It seems to me there are 3 audiences for the debate. The first immediate and obvious audience is that which will be voting in the Ames straw poll. This marks the real beginning of the fight for the nomination. Now how many Iowans really care about Michelle Bachmann’s personal religious views on her relationship to her husband? Are any of them really worried that this would impair her decision making in the oval office? Continue reading

Help Beat Back the UNION HORDES!

UNION GROUPS POURING MONEY INTO WISCONSIN RECALL RACES:

According to a Wisconsin-based free market think tank, of the traceable money going into the recall effort, Unions have dumped more than 14 MILLION DOLLARS to defeat fiscal sanity. Keep in mind, this is just the money that has to be reported – the true amount is even larger than that. Click on the image below to see a graphical representation of the liberal groups where the money is coming from.


WHAT’S AT STAKE?

We all know the Mainstream Media is leftward leaning. In this case, if the Leftist Unions win the recall elections, it will be trumpeted as an enormous referendum for pro-Union opposition to sane budgeting.  IF we win, they’ll downplay the issue. But pundits are already saying that given how many millions of dollars they’re throwing at this election, it would be an ENORMOUS and DEMORALIZING DEFEAT for the UNIONS.


IF WE WIN:

The argument for cutting budgets and stifling the ever devouring maw of the Union hordes will be bolstered if Wisconsin defeats the GOP recalls. By contrast, America has lost it’s credit rating because our terrible debt ratio, meanwhile, after the supposedly “draconian” cuts, Wisconsin was given the AAA rating our country has lost.


Wisconsin further serves as a microcosm for America in that the Democrats foretold absolute collapse and destruction in the wake of these cuts just as they are doing with our federal budget. The proof is in the pudding – Milwaukee is saving money and has a budget surplus without any societal collapse.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS?

Democrats need 3 recall wins to take over the senate. One seat seems lost. One seat seems like a definite WIN.  There are two elections which are very close – you could make a difference in these races!

US DEBT greater than GDP

Remember this day, August 4th, 2011. It is Barack Obama’s birthday, and his gift to you, was insurmountable debt.


Today, our debt has soared past our GDP.

Thank you Barack Obama.


Reporting on this from AFP

 

WASHINGTON — US gross debt shot up $238 billion to reach 100 percent of gross domestic product after the government’s debt ceiling was lifted, Treasury figures showed.

On Tuesday, the Treasury had to add more than $200 billion of commitments immediately after President Barack Obama signed into law an increase in the debt ceiling.

The liabilities had been temporarily taken off the federal government’s balance sheet since May 16, when the Treasury reached the $14.29 trillion official cap.

It then used extraordinary measures to remain under the legal limit while deeply polarized Republicans and Democrats battled over raising the debt ceiling and reining in the country’s massive deficit.

The new borrowing took total public debt to $14.58 trillion, over end-2010 GDP of $14.53 trillion, putting the United States in a league with highly indebted countries like Italy and Belgium.
