Awww: Politico's Thrush Is Bored by 'ACA Debacle

November 17th, 2013 10:27 PM
It's hard to tell whether a Sunday morning tweet (HT Twitchy) by the Politico's Glenn Thrush is an attempt to deflect attention from the historic Obamacare trainwreck or a sign of a serious midlife crisis. Poor Glenn is bored. He "can't watch/listen to another word" about the Affordable Care Act. Apparently, writing a roughly 7000-word Politico Magazzzz ... zzz ... zzz…

Jesse Jackson to Politico: Tea Party Is 'The Resurrection of the Confe

August 27th, 2013 12:09 PM
In the world of Jesse Jackson and the people over whom he has undue influence, if you oppose President Obama's agenda in any way, on any issue, you're a racist. No debate, no allowance for principled objection, discussion over. Apparently now, in Jackson's view, if you in any way oppose the frightening and financially reckless expansion of government we've seen during the past…

On PBS, Glenn Thrush Says GOP Objection to Hillary Documentary Is ‘N

August 15th, 2013 12:12 PM
Politico’s Glenn Thrush attacked RNC chairman Reince Priebus last Friday for Priebus’s threat to withhold 2016 GOP primary debates from NBC and CNN. Priebus was upset because NBC and CNN are planning to run a miniseries and a documentary, respectively, about presumed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Appearing on PBS’s Inside Washington, Thrush dismissed…

Politico's Glenn Thrush Dutifully Acts As Hillary Gaffe Goalie on 'Med

August 13th, 2013 5:53 PM
Our friends at Breitbart.com caught how liberal Politico writer Glenn Thrush dutifully set about as gaffe goalie for prospective Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, defending her "Medgar Evans" gaffe as a mere "verbal typo." "Gaffe is accidental truth. Verbal typo is [a] brain fart," Thrush helpfully explained via Twitter. In and of itself, it'…

Bitter Thrush at Politico: GOP Cemented 'A Ten-Year Grip on the House

July 28th, 2013 11:37 AM
Has Glenn Thrush at the Politico thrown up the white flag on Democrats regaining control of the House until 2022, the first election cycle after the next wave of congressional and statehouse redistricting? If so, he clearly underestimates Republicans' ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but I digress. It would appear that Thrush has thrust himself into the throes of despair…

Headline Change at Thrush's Politico Pity Party: From 'Obama: Hey guys

April 30th, 2013 7:03 PM
The email announcing the supposedly momentous occasion of another column by the Politico's Glenn Thrush arrived in my mailbox with the following headline and subhead: "Obama: Hey guys, I'm still here -- The president's press conference brimmed with frustration and was filled with tantalizing promise." On clickthrough, I learned that the online website's massagers-in-…

MSNBC’s ‘Tweet Of The Day’ Highlights Politico’s Thrush Making

March 7th, 2013 1:06 PM
A daily feature on MSNBC’s Jansing & Co. is the ‘tweet of the day’ in which host Chris Jansing showcases a tweet from a politician or a member of the media that is topical to a major news event. Most of Jansing’s featured tweets are from liberal journalists, and on March 7, things weren’t much different.  Following coverage of Senator Rand Paul’s (…

Politico's Thrush Cites Obama's SOTU 'Spending Proposals,' Omits His C

February 13th, 2013 8:55 AM
Last night in his State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama claimed: "Nothing I'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime." Even considering the inclusion of "should" as a wiggle word, that's a laughable claim. Politico's Glenn Thrush is one among what will surely turn out to be a legion of pundits and reporters who will ignore…

Politico Posts Two Stories Touting 'Ghost of Hurricane Katrina' Hangin

August 28th, 2012 8:51 AM
On Monday night, Politico posted two stories with the same theme: Tropical Storm Isaac seriously threatens to ruin the Republican convention and remind voters of Republican incompetence during hurricanes. Does anyone think this outfit is fair and balanced? In the story “GOP fears ghost of Hurricane Katrina at RNC 2012,” Politico's Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman just keep…

Typical Politico Spin: 'Money Shouts' Is Lesson of Wisconsin Recall

June 6th, 2012 12:35 PM
Politico's Glenn Thrush insists that there's "Only one takeaway from Wisconsin: Money shouts." "Cash doesn't talk in 2012, it shouts, and Wisconsin was a sonic boom that's breaking glass in Chicago," Thrush groused, adding that "Conservative groups outspent unions and progs in Wisconsin by an estimated SEVEN-TO-ONE." Although it's a…

Politico's White House Correspondent Gushes Over Obama's Blood Pressur

October 31st, 2011 9:25 PM
You would think that with all the scrutiny Politico is getting as a result of its hit piece on Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, the employees might want to hide their love for Barack Obama for the time being. Not White House correspondent Glenn Thrush who actually tweeted to his followers Monday evening about the President's "superhuman" blood pressure:

Politico's Dirty Mind on the Herman Cain Smoker

October 30th, 2011 1:06 PM
Brian Maloney at the Radio Equalizer identified the dirty mind Politico writer Glenn Thrush brought to talk radio (although if it's liberal talk radio, it's probably not safe for young audiences anyway). On the October 27 edition of the Bill Press show, Press and Thrush were discussing the very buzzworthy Herman Cain ad that concludes with Cain chief of staff Mark Block blowing…

Politico Sees 'Jobs-centric' Obama Opposed by Ideological Republicans

January 26th, 2011 3:02 PM
"[F]or all the surface civility [of the State of the Union], Obama wants to pick a fight, or at least draw a stark contrast, between his jobs-centric philosophy and the GOP’s determination to cut government first and ask questions later." That's how Politico's Glenn Thrush and Carrie Budoff Brown described the main difference between the president and his Republican…

Politico: Conservatives Ousted Scozzafava Because She's A Woman

November 9th, 2009 3:16 PM
"Conservatives say they pushed Dede Scozzafava out of the House race in New York's 23rd District a week ago because of her left-of-Republican social views - and not because she is a woman. But the growing schism between the Republican Party's ascendant right wing and its shrinking moderate core has clear gender undertones..." So wrote Politico's Meredith Shiner and Glenn Thrush Monday…
