Amazing Video: Mayor Bloomberg loses cool; Ignorant of Black Panther Bounty

This is nothing short of amazing. While politicizing the Trayvon Martin case by issuing his 'gun control friendly' talking points relative to Florida's gun laws allowing George Zimmerman to carry, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg seemed rather calm. However, when Daily Caller reporter Michelle Fields asked for his take on the New Black Panther Party's bounty on Zimmerman's head, Bloomberg actually got angry at Fields for bringing it to his attention.

Really? We're supposed to believe that Bloomberg knew nothing about the bounty on Zimmerman's head? It's nothing short of stunning to see the lengths politicians will go to have people believe they're this ignorant.

Bloomberg lied in this clip and he got angry at a reporter for making him do it.

Conservatives now being forced to defend Romney's Mormonism

Megyn Kelly interviewed Michael Reagan about the mainstream media's interest in bringing up Mitt Romney's Mormonism incessantly. Note that Reagan is in a position of having to defend Mitt Romney against these tactics. My point all along has been that these tactics would be used by Obama's apparatchiks because they will be effective.

Reagan has an interesting take here, saying that the liberal media is fixated on Romney being a Mormon but gives Harry Reid a pass; he also highlights the fact that Reid's loyalties are to the Democratic Party so much so that he is not defending Romney. The problem is that this was all predictable and any hypocrisy pointed out by the right is not going to stop further hypocritical tactics from the left.

Again, the veiled attacks on Mormonism from the left may not be justified but that will not make them any less effective. Note how Reagan is in defense mode instead of going after Obama

Video: Trayvon's mother says she thinks son's death an 'accident'

George Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder. As MSNBC's Ann Curry points out in this interview with Trayvon Martin's parents, that charge comes with a presupposition that the perpetrator has reckless disregard for human life. Shortly after saying that, Trayvon's mother - Sybrina Fulton - says she thinks the death of her son was an 'accident' at the 4:00 mark. Take note of the body language of the attorney - seated to Fulton's left - right after she says it.


Gingrich attacks Fox News; says they're 'in the tank' for Romney

When Rick Santorum dropped out, sentiment was quite unanimous in the media - to include Fox News - that Mitt Romney is the nominee. In particular, both Stephen Hayes and Charles Krauthammer virtually scoffed at any other possibility while implying that Newt Gingrich's campaign had become a joke on the day of Santorum's exit.

Gingrich appears to be falling back to the position that ingratiated himself with voters just prior to the South Carolina primary; he's attacking the media and, in particular, Fox News.

Via Real Clear Politics:
During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted FOX News Channel, accusing the cable network of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight. An employee himself of the news outlet as recently as last year, he also cited former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy.

“I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich said during the private meeting -- to which RealClearPolitics was granted access -- at Wesley College. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than FOX this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of FOX, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of FOX. That’s just a fact.”

Gingrich’s contract as a FOX News contributor was terminated last spring as he geared up for his White House run.

The former House speaker’s blunt remarks came in response to a question from one of the state Tea Party leaders about the manner in which his campaign has been treated by conservative media outlets.

Gingrich did not pull his punches in accusing Rupert Murdoch -- the chairman and CEO of News Corp., FOX News’ parent company -- of pushing for Romney behind the scenes.
In pure Gingrich fashion, he hit George Will that's difficult for the Washington Post writer to refute:
He saved his strongest condemnation for syndicated columnist and ABC television commentator George Will, who has been critical of the former congressman throughout his campaign.

Gingrich said that Will was among the conservative media figures who harbored “personal jealousy” against him.

“In the case of Will, I was on [George] Stephanopoulos on Sunday morning with him, and it was kind of a ‘You’re not allowed to run for office -- I mean, if you could run for office, why am I not running for office?’ ” Gingrich said. “And it’s almost like they were personally offended. You know, ‘This can’t be real, and how can this guy go do that?’ I got that reaction from Will a few years back about writing a book because I’m supposed to be a politician. He’s supposed to be the writer. Well, I’ve now written 24 books, and 13 of them are New York Times bestsellers. I mean, there’s a morning when George ought to just get over it.”
In both Iowa and Florida, Gingrich suffered greatly from Romney's attack ads. Now that everyone except Gingrich has conceded that Romney is the nominee, Romney is having to deal with Obama and likely doesn't have the time, interest, or money necessary to deal with Gingrich.

The coming weeks will indeed be interesting.
