Morning Joe: oh THAT Senator Ayotte

Has anyone noticed how obsessed Morning Joe has been with Senator Kelly Ayotte lately? It seems day doesn’t go by when she isn’t mentioned in connection to her vote on Manchin/Toomey.

It’s kind of funny because I seem to remember a short time ago when Morning Joe didn’t know Kelly Ayotte existed.

Morning Joe ignored her at the Susan Rice/Benghazi Press Conference in November

You would think it’s kind of hard to ignore Kelly Ayotte at that event, She is tall (she towered over both Senators McCain & Graham) but she is a younger, photogenic woman who had a strong interest in this matter. I’d think that would be something to play up instead of just “two old white guys”.

At the time Willie Geist refereed to Senator Ayotte as “others“. It took liberal Kristin Powers to actually mention the senator by name:

Obama also left out the inconvenient detail that there is another senator who has Rice in the crosshairs: Sen. Kelly Ayotte. But perhaps a female Senator holding Rice accountable didn’t sound menacing enough in the era of the “War on Women.”

And as Benghazi continued to advance and Senator Ayotte as she did before the election continued to push it others noticed the omission:

And they ignored her questioning of Leon Panetta and on her statements at the Hagel hearing on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards

I don’t think that the people who rose up in 2009 in the green movement who were persecuted and shot at by the Iranian government would call that government a legitimately elected government. Nor would, at the time that he voted against designating the Islamic revolutionary guard corps as a terrorist organization at the time they were assisting those in Iraq who were murdering our troops.

That is simply devastating. Yet it got absolutely no airtime in the MSM. Why, because it can’t be refuted, there is no way to describe that vote in a positive way and there was nothing in either Senator Ayotte’s demeanor nor her delivery that can be used to attack her on style or substance.

And when she spoke at CPAC talking about jobs, Obamacare the Tax code and Benghazi it was as if it never happened

As far as Morning Joe was concerned until her vote on Manchin Toomey Senator Kelly Ayotte didn’t exist.

Why? I gave the answer back in February:

On Kelly Ayotte, the plan is to keep her out of the news as much as possible so when she runs for re-election they can paint whatever picture of her they wish.

Her leadership on Benghazi and Susan Rice and Chuch Hagel not newsworthy. Her comments today fighting the internet Sales tax non existent but now they have their anti-gun Newtown meme and now Morning Joe and the left has discovered Kelly Ayotte.

The left has wanted to bring down the only national pol to the right of Chris Christie in the NH and now they’ve finally found a picture of Kelly Ayotte they think they can sell to the General public & New Hampshire voters.

The question is, will New Hampshire voters who know Ayotte fall for it?
