George Stephanopoulos doesn’t know Bill Russell

Like most of America, I followed the coverage of Inauguration 2013 on ABC this morning.  And unlike most of America, George Stephanopoulos, co-anchor of Good Morning America, can’t pick Bill Russell out of the crowd, even when the former Celtic great is wearing a Boston Celtics hat.  Stephanopoulos said, “That’s Morgan Freeman, I think,” when cameras zoomed in on Russell.

That’s bad.

We should get Stephanopoulos to cover UK…


“That’s Jodie Meeks, I think.”


“That’s Matt Jones, I think.”

“That’s John Robic, I think.”

    Don’t put God and liberal in the same sentence they don’t go together. You can’t vote against everything God stands for and still be on his side.

    I hate it when people think that God doesn’t pay attention to how they vote. You can say you love God all you want but when your choices in life say otherwise God knows your heart and sees through your motives.

    That can’t be Matt because I don’t hear any nose wistling, but I’ll swear that’s got to be Robic.

    I didnt know the interests of God involved protecting the rich at all costs and defending the right to own guns at all costs. Can you find those things for me in the Bible? What about helping the poor, did Jesus say something about that? Maybe I remember incorrectly. But they are all just lazy scumbag freeloaders right? Is that what Jesus said? Oh wait, no, I dont think so. Maybe the interests of liberals and God arent so incongruent, but then again you probably dont know what that word means. GO CATS!

    I am 30 years old. I have 3 college degrees in physics biology and business. I live a very nice house on 107 acres of land “which are completely paid for” I have two kids age 5 and 1 and both of their colleges are paid for plus my retirement is already set. I am currently working on my masters degree and God has been the one who has blessed me with all I have. And I had no inheritance this didn’t come from parents or handouts it came from God.

    I am not surprised that the nerd did’t recognize Bill Russell, but obviously he does not know Morgan Freeman either.

    “Most” Americans were probably not watching the inauguration, I’d say 50 percent. The other 50 percent were at hard at work so they can pay for the freeloaders who had the time to watch it. Well, at least his voter base got to see it.

    So, #22, you are saying that 50% of Americans are freeloaders and the reat are hard at work? Were you at work when you posted this?

    Actually most of the USA was not watching Obama’s immaculate on as they were trying to buy guns and ammo before he tries to take those away too.

    It is crucial that everyone realize there is no right and no left politically speaking. It is all an illusion. The office of the President has very little power. This country and hence the world is run by very evil, psychopathic international bankers and companies. What we see is all just for show. If you pay attention our civil liberties have been eroding for about 30 years. This is not an accident and it is not the whims of individual presidents. Wake up. 9/11 was a false flag operation. Wake up.

    The 50% that actually matters to this economy was not watching the socialist today because they were working. Bad news for the other 50% non-working arrogant and ignorant liberals is that those still working will stop working and take their capital elsewhere. That will leave the liberals looking at each other wondering who going to send them their gubment check this month. Seriously…FEA

    So all hard working conservatives have jobs that do not allow them freedom to check in on the Inauguration? I can believe that.

    “Most Americans” were not in fact watching the Inauguration. One half of this country has to work so that the other half can sponge off the system, courtesy of Barack Obama who loves to spend other people’s money. Most Americans do not in fact approve of the job Obama is doing as president. Most Americans are instead just hoping that we get past the next 1,461 days until Barack Obama is no longer president and the long and arduous task of repairing the massive and deep damage of Obama’s presidency can be repaired. Most Americans deserve far better than Barack Obama as president.
