A Paul Ryan Festivus Miracle at The Hill!

I was going to con­trast these words from Paul Ryan on the Tea Party

I was frus­trated, too,” he said. “But I think these are very impor­tant ele­ments of our con­ser­v­a­tive fam­ily. I would pre­fer to keep those con­ver­sa­tions within the fam­ily. And I think he was just basi­cally voic­ing his frus­tra­tion with their oppo­si­tion before we had reached our agreement.”

He added: “I think these tax­payer groups are indis­pens­able to keep­ing tax­payer inter­est accounted for, keep­ing peo­ple account­able. And we some­times have dif­fer­ence of opin­ions on tac­tics. We all believe the same thing with respect to our ulti­mate goal.”

with Speaker Boehner’s, this morn­ing until of course I saw this para­graph in the story at The Hill

He was frus­trated that these groups came out in oppo­si­tion to our bud­get agree­ment before we reached a bud­get agree­ment,” Ryan said in an inter­view set to air Sun­day on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Meet the Press? That show doesn’t air until Sun­day Morning.

I cer­tainly can’t com­ple­ment Con­gress­man Ryan on an inter­view that airs tomor­row. How do we know the show won’t be pre­empted or these words won’t be cut before broad­cast? In fact, how does the Hill know what was said in an inter­view that hasn’t aired and they weren’t party to at all?

The very idea The Hill would have any clue as to the con­tent of NBC’s inter­view before it is released is as absurd as Tea Party groups hav­ing knowl­edge of what might be in a bud­get deal before an agree­ment is reached or me claim­ing that John Boehner out­burst was sim­ply him cel­e­brat­ing the tra­di­tional Fes­tivus air­ing of griev­ances a few weeks early.

Unless, of course it’s Christ­mas /​Fes­tivus Miracle!

Update: Another Fes­tivus Mir­a­cle, Big Money Cor­po­ra­tions sup­port­ing the left when every­one in the media knows they are in the pocket of the right.

Coca Cola is a donor. Yes, the same Coca Cola that sev­ered its ties with ALEC because of a lib­eral hissy fit and boy­cott threat by the left over ALEC’s sup­port of voter ID laws. Think Progress, which is financed by CAP, touted Coca Cola’s cav­ing to the pres­sure, but did they reveal they receive fund­ing from Coca Cola? Why does Coca Cola con­tinue to fund a group that sup­ported a pro­gres­sive call for its boycott?

OK that sounds like the air­ing of griev­ances instead.

I was going to contrast these words from Paul Ryan on the Tea Party

“I was frustrated, too,” he said. “But I think these are very important elements of our conservative family. I would prefer to keep those conversations within the family. And I think he was just basically voicing his frustration with their opposition before we had reached our agreement.”

He added: “I think these taxpayer groups are indispensable to keeping taxpayer interest accounted for, keeping people accountable. And we sometimes have difference of opinions on tactics. We all believe the same thing with respect to our ultimate goal.”

with Speaker Boehner’s, this morning until of course I saw this paragraph in the story at The Hill

“He was frustrated that these groups came out in opposition to our budget agreement before we reached a budget agreement,” Ryan said in an interview set to air Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Meet the Press?  That show doesn’t air until Sunday Morning.

I certainly can’t  complement Congressman Ryan on an interview that airs tomorrow.  How do we know the show won’t be preempted or these words won’t be cut before broadcast?  In fact, how does the Hill know what was said in an interview that hasn’t aired and they weren’t party to at all?

The very idea The Hill would have any clue as to the content of NBC’s interview before it is released is as absurd as Tea Party groups having knowledge of what might be in a budget deal before an agreement is reached or me claiming that John Boehner outburst was simply him celebrating the traditional Festivus airing of grievances a few weeks early.

Unless, of course it’s  Christmas / Festivus Miracle!

Update:  Another Festivus Miracle, Big Money Corporations supporting the left when everyone in the media knows they are in the pocket of the right.

Coca Cola is a donor. Yes, the same Coca Cola that severed its ties with ALEC because of a liberal hissy fit and boycott threat by the left over ALEC’s support of voter ID laws. Think Progress, which is financed by CAP, touted Coca Cola’s caving to the pressure, but did they reveal they receive funding from Coca Cola? Why does Coca Cola continue to fund a group that supported a progressive call for its boycott?

OK that sounds like the airing of grievances instead.
