Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Roamin’ Scandals edition
Good morning, everyone!
I see there’s quite a few drums of concentrated stupid lined up in the staging area with “Ben Gazzara” stamped all over them. Let’s suit up and investigate, shall we?
The first one just says –But…but…but…BENGHAZZZZZIIIII!
Gallup: Americans’ Attention to IRS, Benghazi Stories Below Average
| Frank Newport

Slim majorities of Americans are very or somewhat closely following
the situations involving the Internal Revenue Service (54%) and the
congressional hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi,
Libya, and its aftermath (53%) — comparatively low based on historical
measures of other news stories over the last two decades.
results are based on a May 14-15 Gallup poll. Despite extensive news
coverage of these stories in recent days, the level of attention being
paid to each is below the average 60% of Americans who have closely
followed more than 200 news stories Gallup has measured over the past
several decades. Additionally, Americans appear to be paying almost
exactly the same levels of attention to both stories, despite the
relative newness of the IRS story during the time in which this survey
was in the field.
Republicans More Tuned In
are much more likely to say they are following these news stories
closely than are independents or in particular Democrats. There is a
21-percentage-point gap between Republicans and Democrats in terms of
following the Benghazi story closely, and a 27-point gap on the IRS
You know, if you don’t provide something at least as interesting as “Swamp People”, folks are apt to change the channel. Just sayin’.
Gallup: Americans are stupider than we ever imagined.

There’s that 46% number again…

The question is not how much attention the sheeple are giving to
IRS, Benghazi, imo, but how much attention the corrupt, Obama-protecting
media is giving to IRS, Benghazi.
Let’s look at this (Saturday) morning’s headlines, shall we?
“Shots fired at Cannes send actors scrambling”.
Hmmm – maybe FOX has something?
“Powerball at 16 million”
“U.S. slams Russia for sending Syria anti-ship missiles”
“Missing men mystery in US boomtown oil fields”
Damned corrupt, Obama-loving FOX news!
Not surprising. I mean, they did vote for obama — twice.

Let’s see what advice oberstgruppenfuhrer Gallup has for the Freeperati, shall we?
Word to your mother.
I think more folks are paying attention than we actually know.
caller in to Rush, today, said
American proved their stupidity in 2008, reaffirmed it in 2012. I
truly believe Ronald Reagan would have had trouble beating 0bama last
year with the dumbing down of the American public, and the 24/7
propaganda effort by the socialist run media/entertainment complex.

Sad. This has NO traction. None. GOP blowing it.
RE: GOP blowing it.
What do you suggest they do that they aren’t already doing?

Krauthammer to GOP: Be Quiet!

RUSH: Now, I’ve had people say, “Rush, how do we handle this?
What’s the best way to deal with all this?” See if you agree with this.
Dr. Krauthammer on Fox News Special Report during the All-Star Panel
last night, Bret Baier said, “Charles Krauthammer, when the president
says there’s no ‘there’ there, it almost seemed that he was challenging
reporters to say, ‘No, really, there’s no “there” there.'”
KRAUTHAMMER: The one advice I’d give to Republicans is stop
calling it a huge scandal. Stop saying it’s a Watergate. Stop saying
it’s Iran-Contra. Let the facts speak for themselves. Have a special
committee, a select committee, the facts will speak for themselves, pile
’em on; but don’t exaggerate, don’t run ads about Hillary. It feeds the
narrative of the other side that it’s only a political event. It is
not. Just be quiet and present the facts.
RUSH: Okay, so shhhhh. Don’t say anything, folks. ‘Cause all
you’re gonna do is make the independents mad, and they’ll just run back
to the Democrats. Don’t pile on. Don’t gloat. Don’t say, “I told you
so.” Just let the facts speak for themselves, just shh, shh, shh, shh,
it’ll take care of itself. No matter what the Democrats do, no matter
what they say about you, no matter what they say about us, you just shh,
shh, don’t say anything.
RUSH: Now, Charles Krauthammer on Fox last night said that we
need to let the facts speak for themselves and that you people are
making a mistake, Republicans are making a mistake, if you compare this
to Watergate or if you compare this to Iran-Contra. Don’t call Obama
Nixon! You know, don’t exaggerate. Don’t run ads on Hillary. Just let
the facts speak, ’cause if you do all that stuff, that’s gonna feed the
narrative that all you are is political, and that all you are is trying
to defeat Obama politically and then people aren’t gonna like you.

Looks like El Rushbo didn’t get the memo.
I haven’t the slightest doubt that all this stuff
will die a “stillbirth” thanks to Osama Obama’s despicable skills and
the skills of his filthy disciples. However I could be wrong…if this is
played right,which might mean that,for the time being at least,Rush
tones it down.

Krauthammer hates the TEA Partiers, and particularly Sarah Palin.
He doesn’t want them to be right about being spied upon by Big
Government. And these revelations have proven they were absolutely right
in their accusations.
Grow up, Krauthammer. You have been proven wrong and an apology is due.

I never found any logic in “keeping quiet.” Not today with the
Alinsky tactics in full swing. Plus, Sour Kraut – the Sarah Palin hater –
is not my favorite.
As if we are supposed to take you seriously
when you resort to calling someone Sour Kraut? I vote to put you front
and center in the effort to expose this story. Be sure to flail your
arms over your head and drool a little during your interview.
I don’t mean to sound harsh but it will be much better if the conversation is kept to a serious tone is all I am saying.
