CBS Political Director Howls for Destruction of GOP

How is this for nonbiased political coverage?

The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat. …

Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition’s most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.

The author of this bellicose, hyperpartisan diatribe is John Dickerson, political director for CBS News.

To expect anything resembling objective coverage from these ideologues would be preposterous. The “mainstream” media exists for a single purpose: to ram the leftist agenda down our throats. Despite his obvious unsuitability for the office, Obama has been placed and kept in the White House by the media to serve this purpose.

    sheesh.. do they hire nothing but fags as newscasters these days? I guess they were always a little light in the loafers, but now they don’t even bother to try and hide it just a little bit.

    What a fool
    The party of Stalin NEEDS a Republican party as a foil to (if for no other reason) redirect some of the pitchforks

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    But I suppose being high up in the left’s propaganda arm, he figures an “opposition” to Marxism could be easily made up from whole cloth whenever necessary

    It would be more permanent a solution to just murder all of the Republicans in their sleep, all registered Republican voters, Suspend the US Constitution, all elections,the writ of habeus corpus and abolish private property. But from the ratcheting up of the rhetoric or is it more the unmasking of their true cause – they seem to have already decided on that plan of implementation.

    Yeah, one party rule worked out oh so well for Germany, Russia, China, Cuba, Cambodia etc..

    It is easy to build straw men- Big Brother had his phantom Goldberg. It is even better to have straw men, since they won’t fight back and never pose any real threat to the Party. But can be made as big an excuse as needed for further controls.

    America is dead – plan on becoming a refugee to some of the Latin American Nations within our lifetimes before the borders are sealed, much like the Soviets built the Berlin Wall. You’ll see how quickly the border fence flies up when it is US citizens trying to escape rather than Undocumented Democrats pouring for free stuff.

    In other words, he wants a single party system like China.

  • Bob

    sorry I think you and obama have fired us up. I hope the mid terms start to reverse the course.

  • Sam Adams

    This guy has lovely blue eyes and blond hair. I believe he is part of the chosen race. We should listen to him.

  • Determinatus

    Sieg Heil, Herr Dickerson!!
    We shall bow down before the great Zero!!
    Pay homage to the 3 dictates:
    1. No Dissent;
    2. No Guns;
    3. No Success!
    All must be equal in misery!

    (nice comb-over, dude…)

    Another pretty-faced queer talking head. He/she/it IS the MSM. They are now more bias and out-in-the-open than ever before, and that’s because the mindless voters decided to give the country to the radical Left.

    But it does bring-up an interesting question for the sheeple to consider, assuming they still have the ability to think for themselves, which, IMO, they don’t.

    Should biased political operatives enjoy all the same First Amendment rights and protections afforded to journalists“?

    It’s rather funny that he/she/it wants to destroy the republican party. Apparently, it hasn’t noticed the republican party has already destroyed itself!

    He would make a great judge for the next Miss America pageant. He could ask the contestant a question, such as, “Considering that the GOP has thwarted all of Obama’s attempts to create a perfect world, do you think that he can still be successful in healing the planet?”/sarc

    “Should biased political operatives enjoy all the same First Amendment rights and protections afforded to journalists“?

    All opposition to Dear Leader should be labeled hate speech, since the only reason for opposing dear leader is racism.

    As to journalists and journalism….we don’t have them any more. Glenn Beck is a better journalist than anyone who appears on news programs or writes for newspapers.

    (And no; Glenn Beck isn’t a journalist, though he often does the job expected of them).

  • whotothewhat

    John Dickerson I think I have seen this guy before?

    I stopped watching CBS Snooze a long time ago.

  • bobdog

    CBS News.

    Now there’s an oxymoron for you. They stopped doing journalism years ago.

    Mr. Dickerson has been receiving Twitter threats as a result of this article and has responded. He’s blaming Fox:

    “They hate me, they really hate me.”

    When you are on the Fox News’ ticker for the wrong reasons, it’s time to put things into context.

    On the eve of the president’s inauguration, I wrote a piece about what President Obama needs to do to be a transformational rather than caretaker president. I was using a very specific definition of transformational presidencies based on my reading of a theory of political science and the president’s own words about transformational presidencies from the 2008 campaign. It was also based on these givens: the president is ambitious, has picked politically controversial goals, has little time to operate before he is dubbed a lame-duck president, and has written off working with Republicans. “Bloodier-minded when it comes to beating Republicans,” is how Jodi Kantor put it in the New York Times. Given these facts, there is only one logical conclusion for a president who wants to transform American politics: he must take on Republicans–aggressively.
    For me, this was a math problem with an unmistakable conclusion. Some people thought I was giving the president my personal advice. No. My goal was to make a compelling argument based on the facts. I used words like “war” and “pulverize,” and some have responded with threats to me and my family. (“Go for his throat!” some have counseled, echoing the headline.) These words have also liberated some correspondents (USUALLY THE ONES THAT TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!!!) from reading the piece or reading it in the spirit in which it was written. But there were also almost 2,000 other words in the piece, which should put that provocative language in context. What’s been lost in the news ticker and Twitter threats is the argument of the piece: This is the only plausible path for a bold, game-changing second term for a president who has positioned himself the way President Obama has. Indeed, the piece accurately anticipated the forceful line the president ultimately took in his inaugural address with his call for collective action and failure to reach out to Republicans. Brit Hume said Obama’s speech confirms for all time the president’s essential liberalism. The New Republic’s Noam Scheiber precisely identifiedthe speech not merely as liberal but an argument for liberalism.”
