Hilarious! Howard Fineman Blames Republicans For Obama’s Plummeting Poll Numbers

Can you believe this? Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman blames the public’s perception of Republicans in Congress for Obama’s abysmal poll numbers. He claims they are “dragging Obama down with them”.

I don’t know who’s funnier, Howard Fineman or Lawrence O’Donnell. Both should join the circus as contortionists. Summers literally twisted himself into a pretzel trying to make republicans sound stupid by using selected sound bites, in the vain hope of making Obama seem smarter by contrast.

Newsbusters reported –

Can you imagine liberal media members in 2007 or 2008 blaming George W. Bush’s sagging poll numbers on the public’s dismal view of the Democrat Congress?

On Friday, the Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman actually told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell “the fact the Republicans and Congress are so poorly regarded, that the whole system is so poorly regarded, drags everybody down, including the president”.

Harken back to 2008 when stocks were collapsing as was the entire financial services industry along with President Bush’s poll numbers.

Can you imagine a liberal media member like Howard Fineman, Lawrence O’Donnell, or Richard Wolffe giving any of the blame to former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), or the Democrat Party?

Neither can I.

You know what else was collapsing back then? Congress’s poll numbers. They were even lower than they are today.

Sadly, the only thing shocking about this analysis was that nobody figured out a way to blame Obama’s sagging poll numbers on Bush.

Give it time.
