Romney Gives Cash out of Pocket to Needy in Front of Press! CNN Reports as Front Page News!

Check out this ad for Romney disguised as a CNN news report.

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/14/romney-gives...

"God didn't tell me to go to nobody else," she said when asked whether she had approached other presidential candidates. "He told me to pray for Romney."

I know I don' t have to ask, but does anybody think they would have published this story if it were Ron Paul?

Or would have the headline been :
"Ron Paul Caught Buying Votes!"
or
"Ron Paul Spotted Jostling for Cash with Struggling Woman in Need!"

On the rare, occasions that they give the good doctor a compliment, they will make sure to balance it out with a slap to the face at the tail end of the article. Always.

I mean, she wasn't even a random! The campaign asked her to come to the event! This is news?!

The reporter (Political Producer) Rachel Streitfeld actually seems to be the CNN staff Romney promoter. This woman is basically just writing Pro-Mitt Romney ads disguised as news. All her articles either promote or defend Romney:

Is this fair or balanced? Do they have a pro-Ron Paul CNN "Political Producer"?

I know I just sound like a complainer, but this stinks to high heaven.

You're totally on point, as any careful and objective observer should be able to see.

Romney Redistribution

This is a truly bizarre story.

Are we to conclude that it is now open season on Romney Warbucks? All struggling South Carolinians now have the opportunity to chase down Governor Romney and get whatever he happens to have in his pocket at the time. What a guy! This will be a boon to the South Carolina economy. Now that is what I call redistribution. All of those Bain Capital takeovers are finally having the trickle down effect Americans had hoped for. Happy days are here again.

I Wish

I had an idea..a Blood dive..in honor of Dr.Paul..have the Red Cross show up outside or near each caucus...I think it would have been great. People donating a chance at life for someone in the name of a doctor who helped to bring life into the world and whos words and actions are getting the people to breath life back into the Constitution. I thought it was a great idea..but I guess..others did not.

How that level of pandering didn't cause everyone around him to throw up in their mouths is beyond me.

"Romney gave me some money, so God told me to pray for him." I bet she also believes God wants Tim Tebow to win football games. God doesn't care about Romney's publicity stunts.

Before you know it...

they'll be lining up around the block looking for that free "Romney money" much like that line in Detroit looking for free "Obama money." How dumb is that?

"Ron Paul Spotted Jostling

"Ron Paul Spotted Jostling for Cash with Struggling Woman in Need!"

Not hardly, it would read "Ron Paul spotted buying votes"

Instead it says, "Mitt Romney caught buying votes".

as long as this is a contest

as long as this is a contest about who can ham it up the best......

maybe ron should find a volunteer in his campaign who is 8+ months pregnant and then induce labor backstage at a rally and deliver the baby on the stage in front of all the cameras.

Working for the Remnant means working in impenetrable darkness; and this, I should say, is just the condition calculated most effectively to pique the interest of any prophet who is properly gifted with the imagination, insight and intellect

Ha ha! Nice one. Though, to

Ha ha! Nice one. Though, to be like Romney, he'll also need a clearly partisan "political producer" within CNN to write a glowing article. Cameras present is not enough.

Otherwise the headline would read: "Ron Paul's positions on foreign policy scares pregnant woman into labor!"

My real issue with this whole thing is not that it was planned per se, but that it was actually reported nationally as "news" on CNN and thus was effectively was a Romney advertisement.

This is going to look like what it is.. staged media stunts. It's not going to go well in the minds of most Americans, I think.

I wish that were the case,

I wish that were the case, but the media is powerful. If they want to push him as being kind and generous to the needy, then it will work to a large extent. The good news is that now ordinary people have some power to get information out, too, to counter-act these blatant advertisements disguised as news stories.

Brother Romney has his reward.

" 1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward."

If Mitt had been paying her for the work she did at his HQ,

he wouldn't have needed to give her money.

Wow. This is interesting.

Let's see, I wonder who the staff Ron Paul ad maker is?

Well

Well I was on the highway praying and said "God, tell me how to get a soccer ball" and I pulled up to a stop sign and a WalMart was there.

Or maybe I prayed "God, tell me how to keep our nation headed down a path that takes free-will away from people" and I pulled up to a stop sign and his bus was there.

Both times God said, "Prayer doesn't quite work that way"
Sarcasm is more funny in my head...

Maybe some Ron Paul charity will cheer you up

I also liked that they did the food drives out in Iowa. Something that can be duplicated in any town in America.
