John Kerry made an appearance on The Morning Joe this morning 8/5/2011 to talk politics. We learned amongst other things that he doesn’t believe the Tea Party deserves to be heard. According to Kerry,
“we have to change the minds of those people in the House of Representatives who have appropriately focused on the deficit and the debt but who have completely inappropriately left out any kind of plans what so ever for how you grow jobs and grow America. I mean we literally I mean everybody’s talked about it, yes the Congress was taken hostage, the country, the economy was taken hostage. You had people there who were literally ready to cut the baby in half……. so we have to break that. And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual. It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?”
I really enjoy the end of this video where they celebrate the job report with 9.1% unemployment. What cloud do these people live on?
