Belfrage on Thune/MetaGate...It's Nothing

This morning on Kelo AM Thune mouthpiece Greg Belfrage "reported" on the Thune/MetaGate story. First, he left out the fact that Nelson ran some of Thune's earlier campaigns. Then he didn't get into the timeline of the events that raise the as yet unanswered questions about Thune's involvement. Belfrage then questioned the motives of Kelo TV in running the story and asked who was pushing the story, saying that Thune has many political enemies (bloggers) who are probably behind this attack. He concluded by saying he is sure this is much ado about nothing.

Funny Mr. Belfrage never raised the same concerns during the election when the Thune Blog A-Lie-ance launched daily attacks on Sen. Daschle and his wife and bullied the Argus into carrying water for Thune while all the while being paid by Thune (except for Sibby, I know you haven't received a red cent).

In case you want to drop him a note Belfrage can be reached at greg_belfrage@mmi.net.

Belfrage's show is shit -- absolute shit.

Of course Belfrage's show is shit. Why do you think Kelo put his show on at 6am? He got switched for an hour of Hanitty and an hour of reruns of Craig & Mike. The show lost its spot because it is terrible, has no analysis, and quite frankly, is very unprofessionally produced. Too bad that Belfrage is only important in his and Sibby's eyes.

Belfrage is nothing more than a GOP mouthpiece.
He lost all credibility long ago and is a nonfactor.
The fact that the hillbillie is the last remaining individual to bow down to Belfrage says a lot about Greg's credibility.

Police Cars all around Dan Nelson's lots today. Locking the doors...escorting employees out (who won't be paid for their work.)

Are you writing for sketch comedy? Here's where what you say exposes how much you don't know. At this point there is no evidence that Thune, as a private citizen, did anything wrong....I don't think there will be....does the relationship smell bad. Absolutely. But if you know anything about bank boards...you'd know they don't have that much power or influence. Not enough to get that kind of loan did. And if you are really interested in the "proper timeline" than you'd also know that most of the loans were made when Thune was not on the bank board....I believe one of the liberal sites pegged the amount at 3 million. Not a small sum...but only a small fraction of the amount.

If you really listen to Greg Belfrage, you'd know he's not anybody's mouthpiece. And if you can't take the debate get off the blog or turn off your radio. If you want to be wise...you should read or listen to people whose opinion differs from yours. Then thoughtfully debate it. To name call and recklessly through around inuendo and baseless allegations make you and your rantings irrelevant.

Cagey, I think you need to take your own advice and get off of this blog.

Mmmmm...anonymous....oh my I'm wounded.

Of course there was that advice about reading and listening to others opinions so you could be wise....and thoughtfully debate.

Oh I guess you skipped that part.

I guess you skipped the part where you said "And if you can't take the debate get off the blog or turn off your radio."

Actually Cagey, to name call and insert innuendo into ones argument does not make that argument irrelevant, it simply makes it childish. I listen to Belfrage in the mornings some times, and let me tell ya, it does not make me feel any wiser to hear his opinions. But he does have that good fat Midwesterner radio voice; loud, half-screaming, and uneducated (if one can infer that from someone’s tone of voice). Anyways, you eat caca (I'll grant that one as being irrelevant).
