Here is video of Time’s Mark Halperin and others on MSNBC speculating as to the circumstances and timing of CIA Director David Petraeus decision to resign over what he described as an “extramarital affair.” Halperin seemed to be speculating there could have been pressure applied to Petraeus to resign before his scheduled testimony next week before Congress on the Benghazi Scandal.

Here’s video of Time’s Mark Halperin today admitting that the Obama Campaign is “at least a little bit worried” about Pennsylvania. Mitt Romney is making a push for votes there.
Here is Time’s Mark Halperin this morning reacting to last night’s final Presidential Debate of 2012. Halperin said Romney accomplished the goal that any challenger has in using the debates to make voters see him as Presidential, and he moved the focus to Obama’s policies, and the question of whether voters want four more years of what Obama is offering.
Here is Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin pointing out yesterday that Barack Obama “did not lay out a second-term agenda” in the second Presidential Debate any more than he did in the first one. In fact, Halperin says he has not addressed that question at all – what will he do in a second term. Yet he expects the American people to just return him to office.
Oh reaaalllly! We would never have noticed!
A moment of candor from Time’s Mark Halperin. He’s talking about the press doing the bidding of the Obama Campaign on continuing to push their tax return attack on Mitt Romney – but the press is “susceptible” to doing the bidding of Obama and the Democrats on virtually EVERY issue. Republicans have lived with this reality for 50 years.
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, Time’s Mark Halperin said he believes “whatever” the Supreme Court rules this week on ObamaCare is “bad for the President.”
If it is struck down, it is a huge blow to Obama, who “wasted a year-and-a half” of a filibuster proof majority pushing through a bill the public was solidly against. If it is upheld, it gives Romney and the Republicans the opportunity to rally the nation against what is an already very unpopular law. Halperin believes Democrats – including Obama – will talk little about ObamaCare even if it is upheld, because it is so unpopular.
Here is video of Gov. Mitt Romney in a interview today with Time’s Mark Halperin where he framed the 2012 Presidential Election on the failed record of President Barack Obama. He described Obama as a man who “spends his time blaming other people for the fact that he has been unsuccessful at turning around this economy.”
We all know how biased the media is in favor of Barack Obama. But it is still rather jarring to hear them speak so openly about the fact they are biased for Obama as if that is a perfectly acceptable reality!
Here is video of Time’s Mark Halperin coming right out and saying “the Press is very sympathetic to the Obama narrative” – specifically on attacking Romney’s work at Bain Capital. But, in truth, on everything! MSNBC’s Chris Matthews added the reason for the press’s bias for Obama – “other than partisanship” – is that Romney is a really rich guy. With the liberal media, there is no longer any attempt to even try and paint themselves as objective reporters of the facts.
Once in awhile, someone in the liberal media decides to be up front about their own bias in favor of Democrats. Here is Time’s Mark Halperin saying if former President George W. Bush had tried to exploit the capture of Saddam Hussein the way Barack Obama is exploiting the killing of Osama Bin Laden by Navy SEALs, the media “would go crazy”:
“It’d be shut-down. It’d be the lead story on the news every night. We’d shut down.”
But with Obama, he is not only exploiting it for himself, he has gone to the insane step of also saying Mitt Romney wound NOT have given the OK to get bin Laden! He has the arrogance to say what another man would or would not have done in the same situation when Romney had no actual opportunity one way or the other! To this, the media is not only not outraged, they are aiding and abetting Obama.
Here is Rush Limbaugh today giving his take on reporter Mark Halperin saying President Barack Obama behaved like a “dick” during his Press Conference yesterday. Halperin has been “suspended indefinitely” by MSNBC for the comment this morning on “Morning Joe.”
In classic Rush form, he opens by saying the Stock Market was going up because of Halperin’s comment!
MSNBC has indefinitely suspended Mark Halperin for saying Obama acted like a “dick” at yesterday’s press conference:
Statement from MSNBC:
Mark Halperin’s comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable. We apologize to the President, The White House and all of our viewers. We strive for a high level of discourse and comments like these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst.
Statement from Mark Halperin:
I completely agree with everything in MSNBC’s statement about my remark. I believe that the step they are taking in response is totally appropriate.
Again, I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the President, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it.
Here is video from this morning where Time’s Mark Halperin gave his assessment of President Obama’s behavior yesterday at his “Press Conference.” Halperin told MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts: “I thought he was kind of a dick yesterday.”
Nothing out of the ordinary for this President. I’m just surprised to hear someone from the mainstream media say it out loud.
You have to be kidding.
Here is video of journalist Mark Halperin on “Morning Joe” today, where he admitted that the Left has been unfair in suggesting that conservatives like Sarah Palin played a part in instigating the Tucson Mass Shooting. But he also criticized the Right for pointing out the unfairness of those attacks – saying conservatives are not “turning the other cheek.”
So, even though the liberal media and others on the Left have spent three days savaging conservatives, making totally irresponsible and unfounded suggestions that they are somehow complicit in the Tucson Mass Shooting, conservatives are wrong to push back against those attacks?
It sounds like Mr. Halperin may be concerned that a backlash is coming against the Left, and he wants conservatives to stop pointing out the shameless and – to use one of their favorite words – “vitriolic” nature of their baseless attacks.
Here is video of Time’s Mark Halperin talking to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews about his prediction that the GOP could pick up as many as “60 seats” in this Fall’s Midterm Elections.
“It’s not a foregone conclusion, but the Democrats are running out of time and options to keep, what is a tidal wave right now, from washing over them.”
Here is video of Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin actually having the audacity to say what the 9/11 families need to do. Halperin was discussing he sees as the need for the 9/11 families to have a reconciliation discussion and meeting with Muslim leaders on the issue of the Mosque near Ground Zero. Halperin said, “Whatever feelings the 9/11 families want to have………
“Want to have?” I’m not sure the 9/11 families “want to have feelings” — they HAVE feelings! and it is really not Halperin’s place to say what they “need” to do. Halperin seems to have the assumption that if someone can just reason with the 9/11 families, they would no longer oppose the building of the mosque. But they very likely have thought this through far more carefully than any of us. If their decision is to oppose it, then their decision should be accepted and respected. No one “needs to” lead them “through a discussion” – unless they want to.
