Matt Lauer received his talking points bright and early this morning and was ready to attack Mitt Romney before his appearance on the Today Show. Lauer reviewed Mitt’s victory speech from last night in New Hampshire and tried desperately to get Mitt to apologize. It’s just too bad Mitt wouldn’t play along.

Mitt ripped the far left crank on Obama’s politics of envy.

Here’s the transcript from the Today Show:

LAUER: When you said that we already have a leader who divides us with the bitter politics of envy, I’m curious about the word ‘envy.’ Did you suggest that anyone who questions the policies and practices of Wall Street and financial institutions, anyone who has questions about the distribution of wealth and power in this country, is envious? Is it about jealousy, or fairness?

ROMNEY: You know, I think it’s about envy. I think it’s about class warfare. When you have a president encouraging the idea of dividing America based on the 99 percent versus one percent — and those people who have been most successful will be in the one percent — you have opened up a whole new wave of approach in this country which is entirely inconsistent with the concept of one nation under God. The American people, I believe in the final analysis, will reject it.

LAUER: Yeah but envy? Are there no fair questions about the distribution of wealth without it being seen as ‘envy,’ though?

ROMNEY: I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like. But the president has made it part of his campaign rally. Everywhere he goes we hear him talking about millionaires and billionaires and executives and Wall Street. It’s a very envy-oriented, attack-oriented approach and I think it will fail.

Don’t you just love the way Lauer says the left “questions policies and practices” when he really is talking about pooping on cop cars, public squatting, rioting, vandalizing businesses and attacking cops?

  1. I assert that the Nov. 2012 election will be the AMERICAN PON-FAR: A ritual blood-battle between 2 emotionally distant aliens. Michelle Obama will play a cameo role. KUNAT KALIFEE, BABY!

  2. ++

    8)

    WOOT!!

    spot on..

    ==

  3. Doesn’t Matt Lauer make 17 mil a year? If he’s so altruistic why doesn’t he give away 16 mil? Are we to believe he can’t live on a million bucks a year? Why doesn’t he work in the afternoons at a soup kitchen? Why doesn’t he tend AIDS patients? Why does he leave that kind of work to the rest of us? Is he above that??

  4. I’m all for seeing the criminal progressives in New York sent away to prison and seeing all their toys taken away. Anyone know where we can get an honest President and AG?

  5. A rich neo-media type interviewing a rich neo-Democrat-RINO about greed, envy and the progressive way! Wow what are the running dog stalinists of Amherst, Berkeley, and OWS going to say?

  6. Only way on TV is through the haters…..

  7. Matt Lauer is free to give more of his million$$$ to the Treasury any day he wants. That libturd is in the 1%, bet on it!

  8. #3 i have been asking that very same question for some time now. It is funny how these rich news readers look down their noses at other rich folks who actually work for thier money.

  9. When are all these rich socialist liberal’s going to give away their fortune and live in 1500 sq. ft. homes with a compact car in the garage?

  10. HERE’S A BETTER ANSWER – (SOMEONE GET THIS TO THE ROMNEY TEAM):

    “Letting people keep what they earn is fair.

    Having career politicians use the government’s power to come and take it away from those who earned it in order to give to someone else is unfair –

    especially when they give it too the unions who are part of their machine –

    as Obama did with the UAW,

    or when it goes to big donors as Obama did with Solyndra when he gave them $500 million.”

  11. First of all, Matt Lauer is a homo. Secondly he makes a lot of money, so as others have suggested, he is welcome to send Washington more money of his money.

    Romney handled it well.

    Gingrich is an idiot.

  12. ++

    i really and truly want to know exactly how Obama
    accumulated one billion dollars for his campaign??

  13. LAUER: Yeah but envy? Are there no fair questions about the distribution of wealth without it being seen as ‘envy,’ though?

    ROMNEY: I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like. But the president has made it part of his campaign rally. Everywhere he goes we hear him talking about millionaires and billionaires and executives and Wall Street. It’s a very envy-oriented, attack-oriented approach and I think it will fail.

    So Romney thinks it’s ok to discuss distribution of wealth in “quite rooms”, meaning in secret and using tax policy to achieve said “distribution”, meaning redistribution. however discussing it as part of your campaign statagy is wrong? Romney thinks that the policies the Prez is publicly pushing should be done in private…guess Mitt will see to that if he get in?

    I like it when the Progs wear their intentions on their sleeves, I don’t need some Rino to take it back under the covers.

  14. The problem for us conservatives is that every parasite on our economy buys this absurd dialog about “social justice” and “fairness”.

    Obama is stoking up anger because angry people are like silly putty in the hands of a politician. The increasing number of ignorant people in America are a danger to our entire political system. These parasites are not capable of thinking beyond the rhetoric.

    Right now outcomes are determined by the free market system. Look at how miserably Obama has done with his crony capitalism with Solyndra, and the other green energy fiascoes into which he has squandered our money. The liberal lemmings have no idea how much worse off we will all be when Obama is determining what is fair. Can you imagine the extent of the corruption and back room deals that will be cut if Obama (or any other liberal) gets to be the arbiter of “fairness’?

    that’s not what he said..

    ==

  16. Lauer made $13 million last year. Think about that. Maybe he’d take a PAY CUT for THE CAUSE?

  17. Good post IPSO. The fact is OBAMA doesn’t care what harm he causes our economy or our country. He is a Marxist. He will be gone in 4 plus years regardless. He will be rich, he will live lavishly and his angry wife will be RICH and ANGRY.

  18. This reeked of JournOlist. Watch for it people, it is no longer REdistribution of wealth, it is simply distribution of wealth, and you will hear it repeated ad nauseum.
