Hurricane Sandy the 2012 Jon Stewart Rally for the MSM

Never let a good cri­sis go to waste

There is noth­ing more dan­ger­ous than an excuse

DaT­e­chGuy

Back in 2010 when the MSM needed some­thing ANY­THING to pre­tend the Tea Party Ral­lies were noth­ing spe­cial they grasped onto the Cof­fee Party (you might remem­ber them) the other 98 per­cent (I doubt you remem­ber them) Al Sharp­ton DC march (you remem­ber him if you watch MSNBC) and finally Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore San­ity (you’re lucky if you don’t remem­ber it)

In addi­tion to abject fail­ure all of these marches, move­ment etc had one thing in com­mon: Every sin­gle one of them was held up by the MSM as the counter to the Tea Party that was going to ener­gize vot­ers to vote for the left. It wasn’t until after the very last one, Jon Stewart’s hor­ri­ble rally failed did the media the next Mon­day decide to report: “You know, the Democ­rats might just be in trou­ble this cycle.”

Last week­end we saw signs that Media Cred­i­bil­ity day was com­ing early, There were no new ral­lies by the left, unlike the Tea Party the final media cre­ation, Occupy (or bet­ter put destroy) every­where failed to inspire the peo­ple (in fact they turned them off). More details of Beng­hazi were com­ing out, none of them good for the pres­i­dent and it looked like the only thing left to do was bat­ten down the hatches for a long week.

Then came Hur­ri­cane Sandy.

Sud­denly we had an hon­est to good­ness sit­u­a­tion where the pres­i­dent had a chance to do some­thing right on a grand scale and the media went into full idol­a­try mode

Sud­denly Barack Obama who even the left had been call­ing “aloof” is “decisive”

Sud­denly Gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tions that the pres­i­dent had basted of were things the Pres­i­dent was relaxing.

Sud­denly Chris Christie who was not news­wor­thy when he was giv­ing some of the best speeches urg­ing vot­ers to reject Obama, was news­wor­thy when he was prais­ing the pres­i­dent for help­ing out (strangely enough NYC wasn’t high­lighted but there is not a Rom­ney proxy to co-​opt there)

And even bet­ter for the media, Sandy is a legit­i­mate story wor­thy of cov­er­age, so if the MSM decided to ignore Beng­hazi, or Bob Menen­dez (D-​NJ) vis­its with Domini­can Hook­ers, or play down Rom­ney mak­ing appear­ance in PA & Minn, hey Sandy is a full-​fledged dis­as­ter and it has to come first.

Most impor­tant of all it means rather than sit­ting talk­ing about an impend­ing Obama defeat to the MSM Sandy means hope.

Sandy is going to be a story long past elec­tion day, and every day the MSM keeps it front and cen­ter is to them a chance, just a chance that the pres­i­dent can use it to swing this elec­tion around, and because it is not going to be done by Tues­day, it means these hopes won’t be dashed until the actual votes are counted on elec­tion evening.

Never mind the major­ity of the dam­age is in states the pres­i­dent should carry easily

Never mind the vast major­ity of the coun­try as a whole and the swing states in par­tic­u­lar remain untouched.

Never mind that the pres­i­dent: “No per­son left behind” remark pos­i­tively incensed con­ser­v­a­tives after Beng­hazi, who were already so moti­vated you had folks knock­ing on doors dur­ing the storm.

So for the left this means Media Cred­i­bil­ity day can be post­poned indef­i­nitely and when Barack Obama loses on Tues­day, and there is no polit­i­cal advan­tage to push­ing it Sud­denly the ques­tion will become: What is president-​elect Rom­ney doing to get this dis­as­ter taken care of? Why isn’t his tran­si­tion team mak­ing con­tin­gen­cies? The cri­tiques can begin on day one.

The most dan­ger­ous thing you can give some­one is an excuse, and Hur­ri­cane Sandy is an excuse for the media to ignore the real­ity of this elec­tion till the very end, and maybe even beyond.

There is nothing more dangerous than an excuse

Back in 2010 when the MSM needed something ANYTHING to pretend the Tea Party Rallies were nothing special they grasped onto the Coffee Party (you might remember them) the other 98 percent (I doubt you remember them) Al Sharpton DC march (you remember him if you watch MSNBC) and finally Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity (you’re lucky if you don’t remember it)

In addition to abject failure all of these marches, movement etc had one thing in common: Every single one of them was held up by the MSM as the counter to the Tea Party that was going to energize voters to vote for the left. It wasn’t until after the very last one, Jon Stewart’s horrible rally failed did the media the next Monday decide to report: “You know, the Democrats might just be in trouble this cycle.”

Last weekend we saw signs that Media Credibility day was coming early, There were no new rallies by the left,  unlike the Tea Party the final media creation, Occupy (or better put destroy) everywhere failed to inspire the people (in fact they turned them off). More details of Benghazi were coming out, none of them good for the president and it looked like the only thing left to do was batten down the hatches for a long week.

Then came Hurricane Sandy.

Suddenly we had an honest to goodness situation where the president had a chance to do something right on a grand scale and the media went into full idolatry mode

Suddenly Barack Obama who even the left had been calling “aloof” is “decisive”

Suddenly Government regulations that the president had basted of were things the President was relaxing.

Suddenly Chris Christie who was not newsworthy when he was giving some of the best speeches urging voters to reject Obama, was newsworthy when he was praising the president for helping out (strangely enough NYC wasn’t highlighted but there is not a Romney proxy to co-opt there)

And even better for the media, Sandy is a legitimate story worthy of coverage, so if the MSM decided to ignore Benghazi, or Bob Menendez (D-NJ) visits with Dominican Hookers, or play down Romney making appearance in PA & Minn, hey Sandy is a full-fledged disaster and it has to come first.

Most important of all it means rather than sitting talking about an impending Obama defeat to the MSM Sandy means hope.

Sandy is going to be a story long past election day, and every day the MSM keeps it front and center is to them a chance, just a chance that the president can use it to swing this election around, and because it is not going to be done by Tuesday, it means these hopes won’t be dashed until the actual votes are counted on election evening.

Never mind the majority of the damage is in states the president should carry easily

Never mind the vast majority of the country as a whole and the swing states in particular remain untouched.

Never mind that the president: “No person left behind” remark positively incensed conservatives after Benghazi, who were already so motivated you had folks knocking on doors during the storm.

So for the left this means Media Credibility day can be postponed indefinitely and when Barack Obama loses on Tuesday, and there is no political advantage to pushing it Suddenly the question will become: What is president-elect Romney doing to get this disaster taken care of? Why isn’t his transition team making contingencies? The critiques can begin on day one.

The most dangerous thing you can give someone is an excuse, and Hurricane Sandy is an excuse for the media to ignore the reality of this election till the very end, and maybe even beyond.
