This group discussion should really have gone with the title: “Anybody BUT Mitt Romney”.
Chris Mathews of MSNBC’s “Hardball” had a table discussion Monday, June 27, 2011 with both Freedom Works Action Matt Kibbe and the Tea Party Patriots Mark Meckler.
To the credit of Mr. Mathews, he conducted a very in-depth table discussion with both Mr. Kibbe and Mr. Meckler in regards to the pulse of the tea party movement and how it could very well shape the course of the direction of deciding who will be the next GOP Presidential candidate for 2012.
While the talk focus on Mitt Romney and Mr. Romney being the front-runner at the present time, other names came up such as Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann. While it is early, because of the special nature of the 2012 Presidential elections, time is more now than ever is of importance for other possible front-runners such as Texas Governor Rick Perry, (R/TX) to come to a decision.
Another thing I do give Mr. Mathews CREDIT in all this is how he conducted himself during this table discussion, without doing any verbal attacks on either Mr. Kibbe and Mr. Meckler. Maybe for a change Mr. Mathews might have learned a little bit more from the tea party movement.

A very brief passage during the long late morning press conference of President Barack Obama today. These fourteen seconds in this presser Americans will not forget, that President Obama had said during this presser.
“Thanks to Ed Morrissey and Guy Benson for pointing this out to me. I’m sure we will be dragging this sucker out many a time before the 2012 election.”

Today the heat in the ongoing class warfare has gotten turned up a bit during the late morning press conference of President Barack Obama.
From start to finish of the press conference, President Obama goes full blast into pitting one group against another, rich versus poor, those who support both those who are on social security versus successful businesses, and us versus them. Since President Obama cannot seek a second Presidential term based on his first term’s record, he does the next best thing, play up one group against another. In other words, President Obama is painting a picture of Republicans as for the rich and the powerful while making Democrats to be for the children and the poor.
Also to jab at the Republicans, President Obama also brings up both the war in Afghanistan, the taking down of Osama Bin Laden, and the crisis in Greece by adding this:”I’ve been doing Afghanistan, bin Laden and the Greek crisis,” Obama said, jabbing Congress for being out of session so much. “You stay here. Let’s get it done.”
IMHO, today’s presser by President Obama serves as a very clear reminder that when all else fails in regards to your Presidential record, play the “class warfare card” to score brownie points to get the Republicans to cave-in under the pressure so as not to have the needed cuts made as well as to raise the debt ceiling.
Also just listening to the presser, President Obama seems to make as a whipping post those persons and companies who own corporate jets:”If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids out there who do not have college scholarships,” Obama said. “[It] might compromise the National Weather Services. It means we might not be funding critical medical research. It means food inspection might be compromised. I’ve said to Republican leaders, ‘You go talk to your constituents and ask them, “Are you willing to compromise your kids’ safety so some corporate-jet owner can get a tax break?”
Once again, when all else, including the failures of his own Presidential record, go after those who produce not only wealth but also jobs in the private sector.
Right now, the USA going into another July 4th holiday weekend is dealing with a very sluggish economy and very big concerns about its future. A Presidential press conference which plays on class warfare in the end helps no one or resolves the struggling economy.

This just in………….Breaking:
“ATHENS, Greece — Greece’s lawmakers have approved a key austerity bill, paving the way for the country to get its next vital bailout loans that will prevent it from defaulting next month.
The unpopular $40 billion five-year package of spending cuts and tax hikes was backed by a majority of the 300-member parliament Wednesday, including Socialist deputy Alexandros Athanassiadis, who had previously vowed to vote against.
The European Union and International Monetary Fund have demanded the austerity measures pass before they approve the release of a euro 12 billion loan installment from last year’s rescue package.
Without those funds, Greece would be facing a default by the middle of July.”
