Chris Wallace

Chris Wallace – Hero Or Heel?

That it was another brutal work week can be testified to by the absence of articles on my part. It’s a statement of the times were are living through that just having all of our crews working counts as a huge success. We’ve slashed our rates to the bone and are taking a much lower profit margin (whoops, there’s the left’s mantra… evil profit) just to get the work in to keep our people busy.

I know one contractor who told me that he had taken several jobs virtually at cost, just to keep his people employed. We consoled each other, noting that our respective doors remained open and that there are many companies who are no longer around at all.

This obviously has nothing at all to do with Chris Wallace and his unpardonable treatment of GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann. I’ve never much cared for Chris Wallace for a number of reasons, some of which I’ll address in this article.

I have an abiding love for real, factual and substantiated news reporting by historically grounded, unbiased reporters and commentators. I used to think that Mr Wallace was at least somewhat fair and unbiased. That illusion was dispelled when, at the tail end of an exclusive interview with Michele Bachmann, he played one of journalism’s cheapest and most tawdry stunts… he posited the totally unwarranted and obnoxious question, “Are you a flake?”

Then, realizing his buffoon-like statement had badly miscarried, he sort of mumbled into his chin, “Well, that’s what they’re saying out there”. His speech and demeanor revealed that he knew he had stepped in it, and was frantically trying to scrape it off by doing the ‘beltway shuffle’. By this time he knew that he had teed off Michele, as her reply utterly demolished Wallace and made him look like the first-class chump he’s turned out to be.

Hey, Chris… you want to talk about qualifications? Let’s stack yours up against Bachmann’s. No contest. Chris, this lady has more going for her in her little finger than you will ever have. Your smarmy little first-year journalistic punk-stunt backfired, didn’t it Chrissy boy? Chris Wallace is a tool of the establishment GOP, though you won’t find anyone at Fox or around the establishment ‘Repubics’ (thanks, Mark Levin) who will say so.

What you did manage, Chris… and the polls confirm… was to solidify Conservative support for Michele Bachmann. The Conservative base and the Tea Party patriots are swinging more and more to her banner. And by the way, Chris, I like the way she left you to dangle while you scrambled to cheap out on an apology… first with that statement that cheaply reiterated the word ‘flake’ as part of the text. Nice try, Chris. Then he boobs it on over to Facebook and tries to get out of it by apologizing there.

That Michele Bachmann finally accepted Mr Wallace’s direct phone apology only after he had a twelve course crow dinner is a tribute to her class… and a remarkable insight into Chris Wallace’s classlessness.

More Clown College Antics.

If it weren’t so comi-tragic in these days of the constant threat of terrorist penetration of our vaunted ‘national security’ apparatus, it would make a great sit-com… or a third-ring, floppy-shoe, fright-wig clown act.

We have a Justice Department trying to be the CIA, FBI and  NSA all in one delightful package, under our intrepid and totally inept Attorney General Eric Holder. It’s one grandstand play after another, trying to set up MASSIVE show trials on American shores in order to give sterling individuals, like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a year long showboat opportunity to spiel his vitriol in front of the cameras for all of this country’s avowed enemies to see.

Obama And Eric Holder

Now, Obama’s ever-dense administration has finally gotten the message from the American people that we don’t want these people tried in civil courts and we REALLY don’t want terrorists Mirandized so that they can clam up, holding vital information that conceivably could reveal attacks pending against US citizens and interests. The “Christmas Bomber” was only unsuccessful by accident and ineptitude, otherwise another 290 passengers and crew would be dead.

The CLOWN COLLEGE persists in dealing with the international war on terror as though it were some sort of municipal parking problem. There’s a huge credibility gap between what the Obama administration and his National Security Adviser and deputy have been telling us, and what our own good sense and powers of observation are telling us is the truth.

They just don’t get it. They keep underestimating and selling the American people short. They keep getting caught, but they keep going back to that well again and again. Sort of like Obama using George Bush as the ultimate evil facing his Presidency, when the real bogey man is Obama himself.

National Security Adviser General Jim Jones was made to look positively lame by Chris Wallace in a Fox News interview. When defending his deputy John Brennan’s asinine contention that because our American penal system has around a 50% recidivism rate,  a one-out-of-five rate of released or relocated terrorists returning to the battlefield to kill more Americans or innocents is somehow ‘not so bad’. I was all but speechless when I heard him say that. The thought that kept going through my mind was, “what the hell is this guy doing up there?”

Obama’s administration says an awful lot about him unfortunately. The CLOWN COLLEGE would be funny if the stakes were not so high.
