During a rally in Kentucky will Bill Clinton, Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes said, “Kentucky is ready for a senator that’s an independent thinker that can put the partisanship aside and actually fight for the people for this state. One that won’t be bullied by Mitch McConnell or Chuck Todd. We can do this Kentucky.”

Chuck Todd has been crying crocodile tears about how he never wanted to inject himself into the center of the campaign, but his comments about Alison Grimes disqualifying herself by refusing to say if she voted for President Obama have done exactly that.

It turns out that while he was trying to sabotage Grimes, Chuck Todd did her a big favor. Todd has become the perfect foil for Grimes to make her point that Washington is trying to tell Kentucky what kind of senator they deserve. Todd’s comments were so ignorant of the needs of the people of Kentucky that he is the embodiment of why Mitch McConnell should not be sent back to the Senate.

The media are trying to bully Alison Lundergan Grimes by dismissing her chances of winning because the press has already determined that Republicans are going to win control of the Senate. The media have already decide that the 2014 election is about voters rejecting Barack Obama. By claiming that Grimes disqualified herself, Todd was just pushing his preconceived storyline for the election.

The reality is that the media doesn’t get to decide who controls the Senate. It’s up to the voters. That’s why Alison Lundergan Grimes is in a position to defeat Mitch McConnell. Grimes and every other Democrat should not be bullied or dejected by the media’s coverage.

Democrats control their own destinies. If they vote, they will win.

  1. It is starting to look like Todd does not have the skill to pull off his role as the moderator on that show. In addition, today’s so-called journalists look so tacky and shabby compared to Ben Bradley who just passed away. We can blame some of that on the 24 hour new cycle of course. Todd is just trying to ‘make news’ by saying something controversial. First, the right wing dark money groups create a narrative that all Kentuckians and voters in other red states ‘hate Obama.’ Then they set out to create the hate with scripted hate speech by talking heads. Then all the faithful march in lock step with Faux news, Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. Then it becomes this disqualification to have voted for or admit you voted for the great Satan, Obama. It is so sad that a media can control a population this way.

  2. I think Todd thought he was being ever so clever with his comment. He deserves the negative attention he is getting. Smart of Grimes to mention him in her address.
    You made a good comment.

  3. “I think she disqualified herself. I really do.” – Chuck Todd, Oct. 10, 2014

    I agree, Chuck. Of course, Grimes is picking on Chuck Todd because it’s his comments that are getting all the press, but I think Joe Scarborough said it even better:

    “That is so ridiculous. And yet she told everybody she voted for Hillary Clinton. So why did you violate your ‘constitutional right’ then?”

  4. Laura Bush said voting privacy in the booth is a freedom we don’t want to loose. Todd should ask her about that.

  5. That is probably the first time anyone has written the phrase “I think Joe Scarborough said it better,” but the point you are trying to make deserves a response. The constitutional right to privacy in the voting booth is the individual’s right to exercise, not a proscription to telling someone their vote. It merely protects their right to keep it private should they so choose. Joe’s question is illogical, nonsensical, and reflects either ignorance or deliberate obfuscation: Grimes did not “violate” her constitutional right by admitting a vote for Hillary, therefore his question is based on an incorrect premise.

  6. Scarborough is also protecting his new boss, and his own new position. Did he think that Todd should also answer the voting question, since he stuck his foot in his goateed mouth? Of course not. The beltway double standard forbids him actually showing an ounce of integrity, so he’s got to cover for Todd, and for himself.

  7. —k Chuck & his DC Bullying tactics. None of his Business who Alison voted for in the Pres. election. This guy no sooner gets a major Moderator’s job at NBC & thinks he’s some David Brinkley or Tom Brokaw. Those guys were pure class. Clean shaved professionals. THis guy reminds me of Vincent Price!

  8. Grimes said she voted for Clinton in 2008 but it could only have been in a primary or a caucus since Clinton was never the Democratic presidential candidiate so perhaps she didn’t feel as if she was violating the privacy of the ballot box.

    Why is it so stinking important to know who she voted for and when? Do you ask all candidates who they vote or have voted for?

  9. Chuck”both sides do it” Todd is emblematic of the group-think of the Washington media cabal. That group-think helped start a war in Iraq based on lies, and promotes the ridiculous notion that both parties are equally responsible for the do nothing Congress. Todd is a pitiful example of a media figure who claims to be bipartisan, as he has 2 Republicans on his show for every 1 Democrat. Pathetic!

  10. While everyone is praising Ben Bradlee we must remember he with his wife Sally Quinn are the ones most responsible for this inside the beltway bullshit that has infected us with the chuck todds of the world.

  11. David Gregory was an obvious shill for the Republican party. Chuck Todd may have been less obvious until now, but he was always just as much a shill. Meet The Press continues its slides in the ratings (not that the other Sunday morning shows are really any less conservative progpaganda organs) and maybe it’ll die a deserved death, but Todd won’t. He’ll continue to be just another tool of the right no matter where he ends up.

  12. MSM, Chuck Todd clearly thinks DC insider Mitch is what’s best for Kentucky! Kentucky may have a different opinion!

  13. Except, she IS being bullied not just by Chuck Todd but by the rest of the media. If she was a liberal Democrat who unstintingly supported PBO or Obamacare, she’d find more supporters. As it stands, she’s just another in a long line of “not Republican” who is aghast at how racist and misogynist the MSM is.

  14. Laura Bush was once asked about her vote, an she refuse to tell them who she voted for. Said that was her right, an no one else’s! I did admire that woman an I admire this woman! Not being pushed around by the Media or those who want to play Politics an not stand up for the people of that state! No one has a right to know or asked “who did you vote for”, it’s one of the last Freedom’s we have in this country is our silent vote! I hope this lady take’s ky by storm an stands her ground in the United States Senate like Elizabeth Warren is doing! We need more like them!

  15. Chuck might just have helped her, DNC announced their putting money back in the race. Or maybe it’s the Clinton’s, we’ve heard they’re both going to be here next week again. Poor ole Mitch has to offer all expense paid trips to join his bus tour, to contribute to the enthusiasm. There just wasn’t anybody there except the people he paid. I don’t think Chuck did anything but piss the people of Kentucky off, we know Mitch isn’t working for us!

  16. Chuck Todd is not worthy to kiss David Brinkley’s or Tom Brokaw’s derriere! He is not fit to be spoken of in the same sentence with those two giants!

  17. Edward R Morrow and Walter Cronkite and turning over it their graves with the likes of Todd running around DC.

    They both knew better than to offer their opinions as “news”. Chuckie must think he is so much better than Morrow and Cronkite that his opinions mean something.

    I will be pleased to see Todd go down in flames and take MTP with him

  18. Do not insult Vincent Price by comparing him to that phony Chuck Todd. Vincent Price was an intelligent and talented person.From Wikipedia,”One example of his outspoken political action came when he concluded an episode of The Saint titled “Author of Murder,”[27] which aired on NBC Radio on July 30, 1950.[28] Price denounced racial and religious prejudice as a form of poison and claimed Americans must actively fight against it because racial and religious prejudice within the United States fuels support for the nation’s enemies. Price was later appointed to the Indian Arts and Crafts Board under the Dwight D. Eisenhower Administration; he called the appointment “kind of a surprise, since I am a Democrat.” Worth the read, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Price
    How far the once great NBC has fallen.

  19. Damn funny you bring that up Mike. Should Mitch then not also be held to these standards? Mitch admitted he voted for Romney, but won’t admit to voting for Bush twice, why is that Mikey?

  20. Chuckie T. is like that like evil doll in that Chuckie’s Revenge movie. Instead of a knife he is trying to do it with sneaky words and a camera. The first rule of effective good journalism is not to make news, just truthfully report it. Chuckie, like most republican politicians these days, intentions can only be compared to the evolution of hatred found in the Nazi’s rise to power. Cruel statement, but, one only has to view all the negative ads being broadcasted across this nation in this election cycle by the republicans. Hatred for one man..Obama. While their real intentions to rob this nation remain hidden. Chuckie T. is just one of their front men to hide behind. The shame here is that he, like others, are to dumb stupid to know that they are being used. Then to, there are those that are willing sell their souls for their own selfish gain, or better yet, let their hatred over ruled the last bit of their common sense.

  21. We live in Louisville and, as I cast my vote for Allison, I’ll be sure to think about everyone here who has supported her.
    I truly think we’re going to do this!

  22. I have wondered how Todd, has gotten to his present station in life? He certainly isn’t qualified for what he is doing, especially the meat and tater politics.

    Perhaps he should do one of those cooking shows or maybe another type of reality based thing? “Ghost hunting” would suit him perfect…in my opinion. lol

    Just can’t take the guy serious, reminds me of a E-lax salesman.

  23. I have wondered how Todd, has gotten to his present station in life?
