John Harwood Can Never Work In The White House

He just called Murcans stupid!

MONICA NOVOTNY: John, what about this controversy over opposition to Obama’s speech to school children?

JOHN HARWOOD: I gotta’ tell you Monica, I’ve been watching politics for a long time, and this one is really over-the-top. What is shows you is there are a lot of cynical people who try to fan controversy, and let’s face it, in a country of 300 million people, there are a lot of stupid people too, because if you believe that it’s somehow unhealthy for kids, for the president to say "work hard and stay in school," you’re stupid. In fact, I’m worried for some of those kids of those parents who are upset — I’m not sure they are smart enough to raise those kids.

He probably has all kinds of Marxist-Leninist art in his house, too.

Harwood, or rather the editorial staffs at networks and newspapers, have another option besides calling fauxtrage stupid - they don't have to cover it at all.

...This is another way to do it: fight a hissy fit with a hissy fit.

“What this absurd episode shows is that the GOP can in fact come up with new ideas. For example, it’s now clear that the new Republican education platform will argue against personal responsibility, hard work and staying in school.”

Now, get every single Democratic operative to say on television that Republicans clearly oppose hard work and staying in school. They don't want their kids to get an education. Just do it over and over and put Republicans on the defensive.
