Newsweek compares dimwitted Alvin Greene to Sarah Palin and George W. Bush

Alvin Greene, a graduate of the Forrest Gump School of Public Speaking

Newsweek, which once compared Barack Obama to God, has now compared Sarah Palin’s public speaking abilities to those of dimwitted South Carolina Democrat Kevin Greene.

Forget those huge, enthusiastic crowds that Palin draws across America. They mean nothing. She’s the worst speaker in politics according to the sputtering news magazine:

Greene Threatens Sarah Palin as Worst Speaker in Politics

He’s just trying to talk about something, frankly.

Alvin Greene, the surprise Democratic nominee for Senate in South Carolina, has a way with words. It’s the way, though, of Sarah Palin and George W. Bush—a tortured relationship with the English language that prevents him from making his points, and that says to voters he may not be up to the job.

Facing calls from fellow Democrats to drop out of the race—and even charges that he is a Republican patsy—Greene doesn’t help his cause with a front-page story in today’s Washington Post, where his verbal difficulties are on abundant display. From the candidate’s home in Manning, S.C., reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia lets Greene’s style speak for itself…

Where’s Dr. Kevorkian when we need him? This slow, painful death that Newsweek is going through is actually becoming painful to watch.

The media only does this to candidates it doesn’t like. In fact, it’s considered bad decorum to write a word for word quote without first clearing it up … no um’s or stutters or any of the sort. If they like you, they’ll cover you… if they don’t then clearly they won’t…. you’re a walking gaffe.

The media loves Barry O, yet he is a walking gaffe…

Uhm Newsweek obviously hated to see a sample of the demographic of their political party live and loose without someone to control and prep. Comparing this guy to Sarah Palin or G. Bush is completely idiotic. Like someone said both successfully governed, enacted laws and regulations, etc. This guy has done NOTHING similar to that. I guess Newsweek hurts to see that not all Democrats are elite and smart and laurates like their beloved Obama and Co.

I love IHateTheMedia.com – it gives one a chance to really peer into the minds of the left. Into that place of darkness and hate — a lonely abyss of fear and loathing. Have a nice day!

Darrell, Darnell, DEO = TROLL!

You childish comments hurt no one and show who you really are – a hateful, verbally-challenged liberal who prefers name calling to honest research and fact.

And I bet you’re white too!

And you should see the ones that we can’t let go public. I would say that without exception, every comment I’ve had to moderate due to obscene language is from the left.

There is an exception! ( Then, again, maybe not.)…try this: “You are pathetic, Pedro, and the best thing that could happen to you is that your lil 5 inch dick will fall off while you are sucking your Mamma’s teets. I would slap you down so fast you would get rug burns and it would not be with my DDs!” If that’s not an exception, no harm, no foul. I’m good with it, if you are. I take issue with the “five inch dick” comment; my dick is only 3 inches–that’s what Karl Rove, Larry Craig and Sean Hannity told me. But, what’s in a number, huh?Have a great day,Pedro

There is a reason Newsweek is about to be in Chapter 11. This is an example of their rat-journalism. I would say that this half wit is a bit far from W or Palin, considering they both effectively ran large states, and W ran a country-and protected a country very effectively, from the likes of the Democrats for a whole 8 years!

Newsweek has nothing to worry about. The new bill the dems are working on will save the liberal dinosaur media. With our money.

Careful with those comments while I’m drinking coffee.

Laughed so hard I spilled some in my lap – tough on the onions.

Who do I sue?

Hot coffee spill? Sue McDonalds — or maybe G. Bush, since EVERYTHING seems to be his fault. (sarc/off)

I don’t believe he can read… He couldn’t even find a picture of himself in uniform when asked 6 or 7 times while staring at a nearly blank wall.

Maybe he’d be a better speaker with a teleprompter?
