MSNBC'S Dull-Witted Nepot Luke Russert: "GOP Versus Media" Battle Features GOP Complaining That No Questions Were Asked About ObamaCare, Because They'd Hoped to "Distract" From Shutdown

Mm-hm.

Incidentally, this is the JournOList line of the day, being eagerly pushed by Original JournOListers Dave Wiegel and Ezra Klein, and then parroted by duller-witted puppets such as Luke Russert and Krystal Ball -- that the reason the press did not ask about ObamaCare is because the GOP extremists shut the government down and thus drove ObamaCare from the headlines.

They [the GOP] kind of did it to themselves,” MSNBC host Krystal Ball opined. “I think they [the Press] would be happy to focus on Obamacare if there wasn’t a shutdown and looming default.

Yes, that's my read on it too, "Krystal Ball." That the press would love to hit Obama for his incompetence. But they can't, poor dears, because GOP extremists have stopped them from asking such questions.

Brit Hume knocked down Dave Wiegel on Twitter over this stupid JournOList meme -- noting that the press corps had in fact had time to ask about trade with China and Citizens United (or an upcoming case which would follow in the Citizens United jurisprudence).

So the press was indeed able to ask about things besides default (something Obama covered himself, unasked, for 25 minutes).

They chose not to include ObamaCare on that list of Other Things We Should Ask About.

Oh: And Andrea Mitchell is a sour-crotched partisan hack.

But you knew that.
