Explain why it isn't ....


well, this woman hasn't become a major talking point, hasn't whored herself out to the media, hasn't come out with a book or country album, hasn't allowed herself to be ridiculously exploited, hasn't pretended she's a barometer for what a segment of society is thinking, hasn't taken a job as a war correspondent she wasn't qualified to have, and isn't working for a major news network now as a consultant.

i guess when she does all of those things she could be vetted to make sure she wasn't lying about half the things she said.

No, I think it's different due to motivation. Joe the liar, I mean Plumber was doing his song and dance as a politically-motivated piece of propaganda.


1) Even if that's true about Joe, how would the media have known that without asking more questions than just simply taking his word?
2) How would the media (or you) know anything about her motivation at all, without asking more questions?

You and the media have made huge assumptions and have taken her at face value when they didn't Joe. Why is it different?

And this woman lives in a car with her son. Do you suppose maybe, just maybe, there are some things in her past that aren't on the up and up?

Do you really not understand how ridiculous all that sounds?

And the ONLY way they found those things out was to go after him ...

To be honest, I had to look up who y'all were talking about as my current work schedule makes it hard to keep up with the news. So take care with what you accuse me of making assumptions about.

Just perusing some sites, it seems there have been plenty of questions asked regarding her... so I don't understand your motivations here.

And have no fear, I'm sure the good folks at FAUX News have their "best" people on the job trying to find some dirt on the lady

Who has asked the questions and what are they? What sites? Links? Take your time.

Like the "good folks" at the MSM who pounced on Joe immediately?

Chris Matthews got jealous when Obama kissed this woman. I suspect he'll dig into her like an Alabama tick.

maybe they did vet her but there's nothing to report because she didn't lie?
