Walter Cronkite Crankcase Strikes Again

Most trusted man in America my behind.


Former CBSNEWS anchorman Walter Cronkite believes Bush adviser Karl Rove is possibly behind the new Bin Laden tape.

Cronkite made the startling comments late Friday during an interview on CNN.

Somewhat smiling, Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing."

Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve observation.

You know, I'm not sure what is more stunning. That the left has absolutely no idea what nut cases many of them are or that they just might win the election.

These lefties are some sick... (Below threshold)

These lefties are some sick people. You know, I always throught Cronkite was a blowhard. Now I know he's a blowhard with a plate in his head. Notice how these pieces of shit hang on to dear life for decades after their usefulness has ended. LOL

- There is absolutely nothi... (Below threshold)

- There is absolutely nothing suprising about this statement. The major meme from the left has been a reverse accusation approach from the very beggining. There are two sides in the war on terror. If you can't rail against the terrorists then the only thing left (excuse the pun) is to blame America, or in this case the real enemy of the left, the right....Makes perfect sense from their ripped point of view. What doesn't make sense is trying to make sense of it. In their world they could make Mother Terresa look like a serial murderer....

I literally did a spit-take... (Below threshold)

I literally did a spit-take when Walter said that. The old guy just doesn't give a rats ass about anything anymore.

You could see King swallow his adam's apple before he could go on, hilareous.

Walter's no longer inching ... (Below threshold)

Walter's no longer inching toward dementia . . . it's now first and goal to go inside the ten.

The theory that the rings of Saturn are made up of lost airline luggage has more credibility than Cronkite's rubbish. Geezzz . . . not even Michael Moore would dream up something this inane.

I hope Cronkite's family realizes he may need some help.

These comments by the Crank... (Below threshold)

These comments by the Crankster were truly depressing to me, like finding out your parents left the Christmas packages under the tree on December 25th, and not the Jolly Santa.

I mean by that, Walter Cronkite was the standard of Evening News for my viewing for a chunck of my earlier years and to realize today that he was a lunatic, as he's now revealing himself to be, is depressing. Because that means that most of what I accepted so genuinely as sincere was probable bunk, outright craziness.

If Cronkite can say something like this and even smile while doing so, and say it as jovial conversation, I can imagine that he has no concept of reality, decency, responsibility. It's a shamefully terrible statement for any public person to have made, much less Cronkite, who is paraded as a figurehead, authority on standard of news anchor, all that.

If I believed in madness plagues, I'd say that there are many people in our world of late who have caught some Crazy Virus, because the proportions of such ongoing and reckless comments as made by Cronkite and mimicked by nearly all those among the Left, here and elsewhere, is beyond anything I've ever seen take place. It's truly like there's some massive Mad Person Disease going around.

Boy, is Cronkite looking like an ugly fool to me right about now.

And, this coming soon after... (Below threshold)

And, this coming soon after Tom Brokaw's slur about bloggers (as being "snipers in the bushes").

These are truly extreme and hideous statements for persons of these positions to be making, at least publicly as have they been made (Brokaw made the comment during a national broadcast, as did Cronkite during another, and both of them associated the statements with a smirking, irreverant tone, apparently enjoying, if not relishing, certainly suggesting a comraderie in their hideousness).

These are hideous statements, entirely unacceptable, just terrible things for these two persons to have said. It's the speech of creeps. They've all bought the Michael Moore standard of gross, or something close, similar...as if they've abandoned all sense of propriety and decency and responsibility in discourse and lobbed into some lump with Moore in irrational, dangerous accusations.

And who will they blame for... (Below threshold)

And who will they blame for whatever catastrophe if Kerry is elected?
I guess if Rove returns home, they will blame the whole state of Texas.
Cronkite is just showing his true self, it has nothing to do with old age or dementia.

Speaking of Brokaw and othe... (Below threshold)

Speaking of Brokaw and others demeaning bloggers, I was listening to Barney Frank (MA congressman who will vie for Kerry's Senate seat should Kerry win) on a local station here in Boston, WRKO. He was likening the information on the internet to a - rumor that someone says on the street. I wasn't able to get through to remind the congressman about the fake CBS docs, and how the bloggers were absolutely instrumental in exposing CBS
