MSNBC's Chris Jansing Is Already CLUELESS ... 10 Minutes Into Her Broadcast

GOD, THESE TALKING HEADS ARE SO FRIGGIN' ANNOYING WITH THEIR TERMINAL INCOMPETENCE! Interviewing Republican "Communications Director" (trans: CRAPAGANDIST) Sean Spicer on Romney's threat to gut FEMA and throw disaster recovery back to the states, the SLOW Jansing was TOTALLY unprepared to push back with the TRUTH. First, she did catch on to the softball 'spaghetti-on-the-wall/see-what-sticks' from Spicer when he argued, misleadingly, that the states had "prepositioned" assets and resources. SO DID FEMA, ACTING IN CLOSE CONSULTATION WITH THE STATES TO FILL GAPS IN DISASTER RECOVERY THE STATES CANNOT HANDLE! As we speak, FEMA personnel are in full search and rescue mode; case in point, northern New Jersey, where they were prepositioned and the first to the rescue when a town was flooded in the space of 15 minutes, stranding residents.

But the most OUTRAGEOUS claim was Spicer LYING about FEMA "red tape" and "bureaucracy" knowing full well how misleading he was, so he threw it onto Susan Page, a REPUBLICAN, who was conveniently silent, along with Jansing. If anyone wants to know why the American voter is the STUPIDEST, MOST IGNORANT of ALL so-called 'First World' nations, this is why: No BBC talking head would have allowed Spicer to get away with his crap. And to work in that kind of professional climate, Jansing would REALLY need to do her homework, rather than spend hours applying makeup, teasing her hair, and memorizing her own 'talking points.' Here's where you get an F for your homework, Chris; it's very simple, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist; only a minimum of application:

From Tuesday's New York Times — to quote one of your favorite talking head ditties, it's a "target-rich environment:"

It’s an absurd notion (Romney proposing to kick FEMA functions to the states), but it’s fully in line with decades of Republican resistance to federal emergency planning. FEMA, created by President Jimmy Carter, was elevated to cabinet rank in the Bill Clinton administration, but was then demoted by President George W. Bush, who neglected it, subsumed it into the Department of Homeland Security, and placed it in the control of political hacks. The disaster of Hurricane Katrina was just waiting to happen.

The agency was put back in working order by President Obama, but ideology still blinds Republicans to its value. Many don’t like the idea of free aid for poor people, or they think people should pay for their bad decisions, which this week includes living on the East Coast.

Over the last two years, Congressional Republicans have forced a 43 percent reduction in the primary FEMA grants that pay for disaster preparedness. Representatives Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor and other House Republicans have repeatedly tried to refuse FEMA’s budget requests when disasters are more expensive than predicted, or have demanded that other valuable programs be cut to pay for them. The Ryan budget, which Mr. Romney praised as “an excellent piece of work,” would result in severe cutbacks to the agency, as would the Republican-instigated sequester, which would cut disaster relief by 8.2 percent on top of earlier reductions.

Can you HANDLE giving the viewers this information, rather than that ODIOUS, DESPICABLE, ON-THE-ONE-HAND v. ON-THE-OTHER-HAND talking points coverage of REPUBLICAN LIES, LIES, LIES, LIES! Chris Jansing, STYLE OVER SUBSTANCE: TYPICAL. That's why Rachel Maddow is such a breath of fresh air, and why she's our SWEETHEART; but she can't possibly cover all the ground laid to waste by HURRICANE JANSING.
