On one of today's Fox news website's secondary ledes, the headline shouts "Moderate Dem's Would Cheer Obamacare Demise." However, while Fox's "news" reporter Chris Stirewalt, described as a "true conservative voice," claimed that if health care reform is struck down, "moderate Democrats would certainly have to stifle some shouts of their own," he provided no commentary about or quotes from any specific Democrats but rather conjecture on what he assumes is true. His article is not official Fox News "opinion" but a "news" piece that doesn't, shockingly, seem to be "fair & balanced." But Stirewalt does wear a bow tie and as former Republican, John Cole, once said about a conservative fellow on CNN, "since he wore a bow tie, and using the Tucker Carlson/George Will theorem, the surest sign that someone is both an asshole and about to start spewing bullshit."
Stirewalt, a former political editor of the conservative Washington Examiner, did mention that a number of Democrats will not be attending the Democratic Convention without noting that their stated reasons have nothing to do with Obama or health care. He then stated, as Fox "fact," that as the president "caters" to his liberal base, the "clear message to moderate minority of Democrats is that they're on their own this fall" and they are thus "jumping off." He then claims that those Democrats who voted for health care reform "under duress could express some measure of relief." And if the health care gets the "heave ho, there will be plenty of moderate Democrats stifling smiles."
So based on nothing specific but what appears to be his own biased projection, Stirewalt predicts that moderate Democrats will "cheer" the demise of health care reform. "Bow Tie Boy" (as he was known on West Virgina Blue) has got himself some big crystal balls!
