New Tone… Dem Strategist Says Mitt Romney is “Borderline Brain-Dead” (Video)

Here’s more of that new tone we were promised. When backed into a corner because she couldn’t think of one thing that has improved under Obama, Democrat strategist Tamara Holder told Hannity that Mitt Romney is “borderline brain-dead”. Nice.

You’ve got to love Michelle Malkin‘s facial expressions during this exchange.

    Two points.

    1. What’s this? A Republican presidential candidate is being branded an idiot by the Dems? Wow, that’s a first!

    2. Tamara Holder has always been a mindless mouthpiece for Dem talking points, but at least she was mildly attractive. Last night I noticed (especially sharing the screen with Michelle Malkin), she’s coming apart. And just look how angry her expression is every time she tries to make a point. Somebody must have told her that it gives her more gravitas or something.

  • dan’l

    Too bad teleprompter hasn’t told Barry to do anything smart for 3+ years. Tamara looks as if she flies about during a full moon looking for a neck to bite. Another physically repellent dem woman.

    Now maybe she can explain how a brain dead guy made $300 million bucks.

    I simply cannot wait for Romney to stand up during a debate and say, “America, here in my hand I have my college transcripts. All of them. Unedited and unredacted. President Obama, where are yours?”

  • DW Pepper

    The Duh duh Democrats seem to be getting Dumber by the day.. Next time I bet She just starts Banging a drum ( because They Got nothing to say) or Chanting ” yes we can?” .. I was not sure but I now think Miss Holder lips dont move unless Wasserman moves her hand. ( She is a “Meat puppet” at best. )

  • noway

    i was watching that episode. i kept wanting hannity to tell her to please be quiet and stop interrupting.

  • sefilermon

    An announcement to GP readers: my wanumba and kenya flag gravatar were hacked and stolen today. If anyone sees wanumba and the kenya flag gravatar I used, ANYWHERE as of four hours ago, it’s being used by a hacker. I will NEVER NEVER use those again. I will be reporting to the police.

    When obama was elected, people were saying how great it was to have such an intelligent president. I thought “Based on what evidence?” Unfortunately, that question still holds true.

    Wow.. you can tell the utter chaos the Communist party (I Am no longer calling them democrats).. is in now trying to prop up and defend the indefensible 0bama disaster of a presidency.

    She is losing it.. Bob Beckel exploding… it is so funny watching them all throw temper tantrums like 2 year old’s that don’t get their way.

  • pjean

    She was clearly pouting when I watched this last night. I think she was getting mad because she had to defend Obama’s poor record and then she turned into an eight-year old crybaby.

    Sean asked her to name one program of St. Barry’s that worked and she said he got OBL and Bush couldn’t find him. Beyond scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    I admit to being a bit mean, since I greatly enjoy watching Obama and his cabal of media operatives coming unglued. Must be those poll numbers showing Romney (who isn’t even the R nominee yet) tied with, or even beating, Obama.

    Just right, my day is half over
    By the time most of you get up.

  • sefilermon

    FYI all.
    The theft included using my nic/gravatar to publish my IP address and location and my nic was being used to fraudpost obscenities at the head of local law enforcement.
    So, it’s not just “whining.”

    Thanks for all the supportive words. It was a shock this am to find that, and it is absolutely about intimidation and chilling conservative free speech, because the debate was about Left codes for vulgarity, and speaking up against the sexual exploitation industry use of media outlets.

    I did pull the gravatar and replaced with STOLEN. I just wasn’t sure how to quickly stop the fraud use of it so I put up a note here so people here would know not to accept that nic and flag combo as from me anymore, ever.
    If the new nic/gravatar is stolen, then I’ll have some more tracking details for the police. Until then, ya’ll can tell the mood I was/still am in by my choice of crocodile for a gravatar.

  • olm

    I love watching them come unglued. I love it, expected it but am surprised as hell it is happening so soon.
    Hannity is going to run out of Dem guests.

    MC, I’m up by 5:00 every day, and at my desk by 6:00. It helps to have a few mugs of stout black coffee, unadulterated with squeezed sugar cane or extract of cow.

  • SeniorD

    When facts are not in your favor argue from the emotional side. Its always worked for the Socialist Democrat Party and it still seems to be a major option in their playbook.

  • Gimme a Break, I’m a Tea Party Hobbit

    Tamara Holder probably thinks Joe Biden and the dog eater are Mensa material.

  • Slappy

    I think this idiot Tamara Holder got confused. She was supposed to use the Left’s other oft-used insult for Republicans (i.e., they are evil), not the oft-used insult she used (i.e., they are stupid). After all, you can go back several presidential elections to see that they usually call one member of the GOP ticket “stupid” (e.g., Bush 43, Reagan, Palin) and the other “evil” (e.g., Dole, Bush 41, McCain), while ignoring the intellectual and ethical deficiencies of the two individuals on the Democratic ticket. Therefore, the Left can save the brain-dead allegations for Romney’s running mate since, despite my multiple issues with Romney, he possesses a strong intellect that I’d put up against anyone else from either political party.

    BTW, just watch how important the academic background of Romney’s running mate becomes if the choice is someone who didn’t complete their undergraduate or graduate education at an Ivy League school (e.g., Paul Ryan, Chris Christie). Of course, the media and Democrats will keep touting Obama’s Ivy League education, while ignoring Biden’s mediocre educational background (and Obama’s lack of transparency regarding his academic performance as a college student).

  • Indiana

    There’s not a liberal out there that can’t be beat down with logic. Liberals are arrogant fools; keep them coming Hannity, they’re all coming un-glued…’s fascinating to watch. Bob Beckel, Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz, Tamera Holder, Juan Williams, Kirsten “what ever her last name is,” what a bunch of losers in the tank for Obama.

    I wonder if PETA is going to march against Obama. Dogs are friends, not food.

  • donh

    I do not know why Hannity keeps bringing on his show women of such rude conversational manners and low moral character. The only camera Tamara belongs on is some boob flashing web cam at 99c a minute.

  • JustSaying

    I watched this exchange last night….she was not prepared to go up against Michelle….she looked foolish and really had no legitimate answers for the questions she was asked…I was embarrassed for her and that is a first…It just shows to go ya…..when you don’t have a good record to run on, you have nothing…Tamara proved that without a question of a doubt! I, too….love watching the Dems coming unglued!

  • owl

    I have noticed a few new tricks for Hannity. He no longer suffers these fools without pinning them with ‘answer the question’. Bless his heart, he has carried the load a long time.

    Tamara is always one of their ugly people. I put her with the true believers.

    MSM has always protected the brand and they can’t believe what is happening. It’s a dogg day. People are laughing at them? No way!

  • Chippy

    Tamara Holder is a communist sympathizer who has worked for Jessie Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition and Communist conngressman Danny Davis Jr.

  • lizzy84

    MM shredded her like a buzz saw. The Dog Muncher’s hacks are in trouble. He has NO accomplishments to run on, “but, but, but bin Laden,” as Holder pathetically retorted. I thought I was listening to Beckel..what a moron!

  • Patty

    Tamara “Holder” maybe not relations to Eric but she has all the makings of being his Big Sis.

    I wish she could have gone on and mentioned what jobs Obama has created because to date the only ones have been in BIG GOVERNMENT and Solyndas. GSA has made a mockery of Government, Solyndras, with a “S” are bankrupt, NASA Shuttle is being put into the Smithsonian Museum.

    Obama is not a job creator he is a Job destroyer. Nothing he has done but spend us into 5 trillion more in debt. THIS IS THE REALITY.

    Calling Romney borderline brain dead sounds to me it is one of those same talking points, rage and hate. Very immature and appropriate for the left.

  • Patty

    “related” to Eric, lol, correction.

  • an observer

    The Obama drones are going to get more militant. It will extend beyond message into full fledged violence.

    There will be no peace in America until the left is destroyed. They are the source of incivility and agitation.

  • OxyCon

    Tamara Holder is not a very smart person and every time she makes an appearance on Fox she embarrasses herself.

    Well, exactly. I don’t know how far this is going, if the anarchist thug can get further than the IP, hack our personal computers?
    Any insights as to how the nic/gravatar could have been hijacked? The blog owner doesn’t think it was from inside the blog, where my wordpress info is stored, he’s thinking maybe at gravatar itself. I’m leaning to blog comprising, not the Gravatar site, does anyone know if it’s easy to hack gravatar? (supposed to be secure) The only thing that made me feel better was to swap the flag gravatar with STOLEN, an instant sweep in case they did what they did last time and used my nic against a state senator and the sheriff so I got a gravatar to identify the true wanumba from the fake. Today, the same devious bunch got into that to make it look like the false posts were all legit because they got complete control of the two behind my back.
    I’m nobody, so what’s one nic or another, I just don’t want our computers/banks etc info hacked, especially because some rotten Lefties couldn’t handle being Breitbarted.

    ANyway, taking up too much of this thread well … it’s not really OT. We can all handle being yelled at, but when they go after your personal info/life to destroy you … that’s what we’re up against. The stakes this year are enormous.

  • Taqiyyotomist


    All someone has to know, to use your Gravatar image, is your e-mail address:

    With Gravatar, there is no logging in — just an e-mail address.


  • I love Malkin!

    Has anyone noticed that those on the Left who are guests on FOX are slowly becoming more unglued? Example: Beckel. And Tamara. She was so emotional that she was NOT making a bit of sense. Then there’s Wasserman Schultz who lost it a week ago on Greta. Methinks they are very worried! Muahahaha….

  • Some Other Guy

    And, if they know your e-mail address, and your nic (which was “wanumba”, of course), then there is no “hacking” involved.

    Did you post at any leftist sites? The site owner knows your IP addy.

    Are you registered at any leftist sites using the same e-mail with which you got your gravatar? The site owner knows your e-mail address.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Gravatar is not, by any stretch, a “safe” way to make sure you are never impersonated.

    The safest way is for the site owner to implement something like Ace of Spades HQ has been using for years now. A hash-tag after your post. Mine, at AoSHQ, has been (ltFEd) for as long as I’ve been posting there. If someone posts as Taqiyyotomist, and you don’t see those 5 letters in parentheses, then it’s not me. The hash-tag is, I believe, based on our individual IP addresses.

    Gravatar is more of a “cool” cosmetic thing than a safety device.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    This is also why I don’t comment at Leftist sites.

    I don’t trust anyone on the Left with my email address or my IP address.

    Because the Left DOES sh1t like that. There are no rules for them. NONE.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Lefties can feel safe in commenting at conservative sites, and even feel safe giving their e-mail for registration purposes. They know, conversely, that we won’t, by and large, use their info for nefarious purposes. (There have been little green exceptions to this rule.)

    The same reasoning applies to bumper-stickers on cars. Leftists can plaster their entire cars with “down my throat-shoving” messages with which conservatives disagree, and can feel completely safe in doing so, knowing that their car will not be vandalized.

    Right-wingers with even ONE LITTLE STICKER that is in disagreement with Leftists — THEY GET VANDALIZED. And we know it by experience.

    Sorry to hear about your problem.
    I remember what a pain it was when my username got stolen here and all those liberal posts were made. And I think you were one of the ones who pointed me to the gravatar.
    Hope you get it worked out.

    Of course Tamara Holder’s mind is also like a steel trap… rusted shut.

  • Gary

    lizzy84 43

    I can’t see the video on this computer, but I remember from last night, as soon as Hannity asked Michelle a question, Tamara leapt in and starting talking before Michelle could even complete the thought. Michelle sat silently until Tamara was all talked out, and then said “can I finish?”

    She’s cool, man.

    Also this isn’t the first time I’ve seen Tamara Holder melt on the spot. O’Reilly or Hannity asked her to name something the other day, and after much huffing, she said, I would if you’d just let me look at my notes.

    If anybody hasn’t noticed, looking at notes is a lib thing. They can’t speak from the heart.
    Just watch a Harry Reid press conference. It looks like he’s practicing from a third grade reader.

  • Gary

    Taq 52

    A couple of thoughts.

    I think you could even copy the image off this forum, save it to your computer, then upload it at Gravatar with a new nickname of your choosing on a new account with any old email address, and then come back here and post using the person’s handle from this site, typing in the email address you made up, and it would do the very same thing. No hacking involved.
    My username (Gary) is not the nickname I registered at Gravatar.
    It appears to be purely email address driven.

    Secondly, a pretty safe way to not have your ID stolen is a simple username/password login on the website. Granted hacking wouldn’t be utterly impossible, but it is extremely difficult if the password is over 8 alphanumerics.
    I’ve run a lot of websites over the years, and never had a user id stolen.

    On a side note, probably one of the dumbest things ever invented was “security questions”. My pet’s name, my mother’s maiden name? Yeah, nobody could ever figure those out in a million years.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    This is Gary just testing my theory.

  • Joanne

    Tamara Holder is the one who is brain-dead. I’m not a fan of Romney, but at least he is a shining example of the possibilities one can obtain in a capitalist society. If you take from the rich, the rich aren’t going to bother being rich, so who then is Obama going to take monies from to redistribute?

  • Gary

    I suspected that when I first set up the account.

    In this treacherous election year, we’ll just have to be more vigilant if any of start sounding like libs.
    That’ll be the true giveaway.

  • Gary

    Joanne 64

    Well said.
    A regular Atlas Shrugged moment.

  • sefilermon

    Thanks all.
    I didn’t expect a big security thangy from gravatar, just a way to say, this is the original poster, but now I regret recommending it. period.
    I THINK the hacker took it from the blog itself… it’s the IP I’m concerned about, really not the nic – all that is secondary to protecting
    ANd yes, I avoid the Left blogs unfortunately I posted a disclaimer of fraud for the orginal theft which was used at that Left blog, whenI got the gravatar, so they maybe grabbed it there maybe or the owner’s blog was compromised.
    I will probably shut this nic down too as I had to use it to post at the home blog and the address may be compromised.

    DIrty dirty and I didn’t know how many hard core types I infuriated – I inadvertently tangled with big demons … fools rush in right? it was just a small local blog. But there is ZERO privacy on the internet zero zero.

  • chris

    These libs are hysterical. They cannot run Obama on his record. Too toxic. So the only thing they have left is grade-school name calling. To smear. To insult. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so pathetic.

  • 1RedBeard

    Well, I’m safe, cuz I lie about myself. My beard isn’t really red. Not for many years. That is, if I actually had one. Ooops… now the secret is out. Dang. I hate when that happens.

    Oh, and Gary… how on earth do you get going in the early AM without coffee? I need at least two mugs just to start my heart each morning. 😉

  • SpideyTerry

    Romney never said there were 57 states or questioned the Supreme Court’s power to toss out laws or thought Hawaii was apart of Asia or thought Austrian was a language. So if he’s brain-dead, what does that make Obama?

  • Gary

    Redbeard 69

    My hair was red when I was a kid and then it darkened to dark brown by the time I was in third grade.
    Later in my twenties, I was shocked when my first beard came in red, and my hair was still dark brown.
    Then the beard darkened to dark brown over the years.
    Now, like you, neither one is red or brown.

    Don’t worry about the gravatar. Nobody can keep out a thief. Security is reactive, no proactive. But having the avatar on my posts is cool, and most libs are too lazy to go to the trouble I did with Taq’s id, so thanks for the suggestion all the same.

    My liberal educator and sister-in-law here in MN, said to me one day in 2008, “It will be nice to have an intellectual in office for once”. Yeah, whatever.

    And it isn’t just Obama. Almost everybody he surrounds himself with comes from academia. The White House is a veritable faculty lounge these days. They’ve had the opportunity for three years now to put into practice every liberal theory they’ve ever come up with at Harvard and Yale, and it has been an unmitigated disaster.
    It sure underscores the need for a serious look at the entire education system in this country.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    goodness, Gary.

    I feel violated!

    After Mittens called Imam Obama a ‘nice guy’, i have a gut feeling she is right.
