Caught: MSM #realreporters cheering Obama knocking Romney’s wealth

Surprise (not):

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — The room set aside for reporters to watch Tuesday night’s debate erupted into applause after President Obama ridiculed the size of Mitt Romney’s personal wealth.

Mr. Romney was trying to make the point that both his and Mr. Obama’s investment funds probably include investments in China — something the president has attacked Mr. Romney for.

“Mr. President, have you looked at your pension?” Mr. Romney said.

“You know, I don’t look at my pension. It’s not as big as yours, so it — it doesn’t take as long,” Mr. Obama retorted. His reply prompted laughter in the debate hall where the two men were squaring off — but across the way in the separate room where the press was stationed, a brief round of applause broke out.

Move along here, nothing to see …

    This is all the Obama campaign and its adoring media have left, desperately searching for mildly witty soundbites and for some reason actually believing that’s going to appeal to anyone other than their far left base. Keep it up, jokesters. The overwhelming support of Romney on EVERY major issue in post-debate polls last night proves they’ll all be in for a big surprise the morning of Nov. 7.

    That remark by Romney was to prevent Obhammud from exposing his ignorance by pointing out to him his own pension plan had investments in China. That his acolytes would clap and cheer at his asinine retort only shows they are just as ignorant as is he. They claim he is possessed with some sort of superior intelligence but random and isolated flashes of coherence by an intellectual dilettante are not getting the job done.

    If they were applauding in the press station at the debate, it’s likely Chris Matthews was needing to breathe into a paper bag to control his hyperventilating before going to change his underwear.

    The press can suck it. I am so tired of the bias. I wish people would wake up.

    I was really surprised Ms. Crowley didn’t get up and do a fat woman’s version of a “victory dance” when Duh-1 made that comment. Seems like she would have been very, VERY comfortable in the press room.

    Who are these reporters? They should be outed in the interest of full disclosure.
