Politico Reporter: NRA Spokesman ‘Tired Old White Guy’

March 25, 2013 10:10 pm  

(Breitbart) – Personally, I just love it when a Politico “reporter” lets down their guard and momentarily exposes just how biased and left-wing Politico is.

Appearing on MSNBC with anchor Tamron Hall Monday, Politico reporter Lois Romano was asked to comment on NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s criticism of Mayor Bloomberg’s $12 million gun control push. LaPierre said that Bloomberg can’t “buy America,” which obviously infuriated the Politico reporter.

FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Don’t Let The Government Take Your Guns! Protect Your Second Amendment Rights!

Romano dropped every pretense of objectivity and launched into a racially-tinged attack on LaPierre that was so extreme it left her MSNBC host momentarily speechless:

Politico’s Lois Romano: And I think that before this whole fight is over, we’re going to be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on this. You know, he made a very clever point. He’s trying to paint Bloomberg as a guy that’s just gonna buy everything. But the one thing the one thing that’s going on here is optics, and, you know, basically Bloomberg has on his side, sort of this whole notion that it’s time to do something different. And Wayne LaPierre is looking like a tired old white guy that’s clinging on to something of the past.

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall: Well, I’ll let you say that.

With her “clinging” remark, Romano sounds an awful lot like Politico’s hero Obama doesn’t she?

What’s especially revealing is that Politico spent most of the 2012 campaign lashing out against Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision that returned First Amendment rights to corporations. Until Citizens United, only media corporations like Politico were allowed to spend unlimited amounts of money to affect the political process.

For months, and led by former George Soros’ employee Ken Vogel, Politico lashed out against this  “outside money” and made the Koch brothers into its bogeyman.

Funny how things have changed, isn’t it?

When it’s billionaire Bloomberg pouring millions of outside money into a political cause, he’s not Politico’s bad guy. Instead, Politico decides the villain is the man trying to protect our civil rights.

Why anyone on the political right does any business with Politico is beyond me.
