Will ESPN hypocritically punish Paul Azinger again?
Last August, I posted about how ESPN has a history of allowing their correspondents and sports commentators to make liberal statements, but not anything critical of Obama, or even vaguely Conservative in nature. Specifically I highlighted the ridiculous hypocrisy of their trying to shut up Golf champion Paul Azinger on the tweet he sent out:
This morning, Paul accidentally criticized Obama, by misunderstanding a quote tweeted out by Monica Crowley. After learning the quote was from Obama, and not her, he pursued the issue. Here’s the exchange:
Oh Boy. Let’s hope those liberal fascist crackheads at ESPN aren’t monitoring Paul’s Twitter account. Apparently, Monica was quoting Obama in a speech yesterday:
. . . We have so much more work to do. And everything we fought for during the last election is at stake in this election. The very core of what this country stands for is on the line — the basic promise that no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, this is a place where you could make it if you try. The notion that we’re all in this together, that we look out for one another — that’s at stake in this election. Don’t take my word for it. Watch some of these debates that have been going on up in New Hampshire.
The crisis that struck in the months before I took office put more Americans out of work than any time since the Great Depression. But it was the culmination of a decade where the middle class had been losing ground. More good jobs and manufacturing left our shores. More of our prosperity was built on risky financial deals and homes that we couldn’t afford. And we racked up greater debt, and incomes fell and wages flat-lined. And the cost of everything from college to groceries went through the roof.
I mused, that Obama was talking, again, out of two sides of his mouth, as he had promised that he would “fundamentally” change America, but now he’s saying it’s Republicans who want to change America. Apparently, change is a bad word and conserving America’s values is in? So I chimed in:
[try to keep this quiet, gringos, I don’t my pal Paul to get in trouble]
