The leftwing, Old Media has chosen its mode of attack on Paul Ryan: he wants to kill your grandmother. To further that, on CNNs Saturday morning election coverage, Candy Crowley announced that people are "afraid" that presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney's pick of Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan is a "ticket death wish."
Crowley seems to think that the addition of Paul Ryan to the ticket will force a debate on entitlement and budget reform that the GOP is "afraid of" and naturally her interpretation of that debate is predicated on the claim that Republicans want to destroy Social Security and other safety net programs. Ergo, Republicans want to kill people.
We’ve already had this debate. All they have to do at Obama Reelect is open up the files because this debate has already happened. They just bring it back, it goes, it is, you know, what they talk about. But I think the other thing that’s worth pointing out is not every Republican has signed on to this kind of, I mean, they will publicly. But there is some trepidation that this might be, looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish. That, oh, my gosh, do we really want to talk about these thing? Is this where we want to go when the economy is so bad? We could have stayed on that.
Crowley is merely pushing the White House lie that anyone who opposes Obama wants to kill people. She is part and parcel to the lowest campaign in modern history, as bad or worse than Lyndon B. Johnson's campaign ads that claimed his Republican opponent wanted to destroy the world with nuclear war.
This White House is perpetrating the most cynical campaign yet.
Speaking of White House operatives pretending to be "journalists," check out former journalist turned White House underling turned back to "journalist," Andrea Mitchell, who told MSNBC audiences that Ryan pick is, "not a pick for suburban moms, this is not a pick for women, not a pick for suburban moms, this is not a pick for women."
So, not only does Paul Ryan want to kill your grandmother, but he hates your wife and daughters, too.
That's the White House programmed media for you.
