So according to Politico reporters are having a miserable time of the conventions as Walter Shapiro size.
It's a lot less fun that's tragic Walt I guess the mini bars out of Tobler around.
Assembling a cable news and a brutal campaign has so right fellas this is what a little competition feels like.
But really blaming cable is just -- -- I mean funny that this whining ever reared its emasculated and in 2008.
But now they cry like boys dumped -- prom night.
But such is the case when you fall in love so fast and so hard with Obama the chemicals of infatuation or so overpowering that -- -- prone to impetuous actions.
That thrill up your leg bordered on early onset dementia.
But then the guy moves in and either he loves it back.
-- doesn't -- he didn't the reporters loved Obama he charmed them as he charmed America and then he left us for something better.
Golf Clooney his man cave leaving those reporters to re -- of Desperate Housewives and eating Ben and Jerry's alone -- And so the -- reporters left wondering what's next.
It's just too soon to -- the love again not like that he broke your heart no wonder you're depressed so depressed you can't even realize that people like me a -- matter.
Or that Ryan's Obama poster -- nailed his presidency -- they Clint Eastwood killed.
At least there's still the strip club next day Hilton with -- Obama's numbers tanking that's the one poll most reporters are still true today and not that it holds them and I yet we abandon them all my friend hey Andrea OK so we we read these articles -- -- like -- -- -- them the -- bitterest thing when you were reading that did you feel -- it it was like.
This is not hard work -- -- not hard work hard work it's not to break the either -- and they're crying and we heard Chuck Todd also said that the fact is we are under covering.
The economy so may -- now that there's not enough drama for the active.
Right they can actually cover the issues and what's going on and you know it's ironic that they complain too.
Because think about the primary season they had when Republicans were just killing still like other -- so much news so much for them to write back and now other senior -- -- no there's no good news to read about Ronald momma what are we gonna do now I mean it's it.
They can't write the -- stories anymore about Iran but all it takes is one smile the -- from the president and guess what yeah political half twelve MSNBC.
CNN that they pulled back in the but the exact does that put an ex girlfriend calls you up after six months view at all -- said you like meaning you refresh your email because you think he's gonna -- Not I never -- You know that -- That I was -- a cue from states and it was very thankful for it.
You know what that -- -- -- these people are these uses so scripted now they have actually nothing to write about it yeah and is not just 2008 and yet they were -- -- of Obama but you go back and so.
Well I guess I guess you say that's that this error was a big story then but that.
But you -- what was -- so there's a big story of the convention was probably Dick Morris in 1996.
And that was a story as any other choice.
You can discuss this topic or the other topic that we might get to not edit topic the speaking OK -- -- -- day we you talked about in -- about Joseph Klein knew it said on.
Have I think -- -- there and and show.
That maybe Obama should play the race card now I defended him you did and I said well maybe what he -- is issued cut that that President Obama to come out and try to heal people.
OK so -- today tries to explain this and then he made things worse yes I sane.
However if the current Republican dog whistling continues bump -- -- so I hereby withdraw my support and I -- -- at him.
-- -- You're the funny thing about the Joseph Klein the thing is he said I would never play the race card because that such a cliche term and then he goes to use the word dog whistle.
Which is actually now replacing race card as a cliche term he's a walking cliche -- It -- But it did did did is worth a discussion to wonder why is it 93% of blacks vote for Democrats analysts have room -- probably it is.
If we're talking about but unfortunately I'm cutting you off the fat fat and we if that's we could do an entire show one that.
We can do 24 hours on that but anyway and won't get Thomas -- here he'll destroy everything are coming up.
