Pathetic: ABC’s Terry Moran tries to play chickenhawk card with Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul didn’t mince words when he took on a defensive Secretary Clinton this morning, calling her role in Benghazigate a “failure of leadership” and telling her that he would have given her the boot:

That just didn’t sit well with ABC’s Terry Moran, who leapt to Clinton’s defense by questioning Paul’s authority. The senator never served in the military, so what qualifies him to ask questions about the military and foreign affairs?

The nerve!

Apparently not.

Feverish spin and deflection from media lapdogs is nothing new, but truth-seekers were nonetheless amazed at Moran’s intellectual acrobatics:

Hey Terry, you know who else never served in the military?

And oddly enough, Moran doesn’t seem to have taken issue with another senator’s lack of military or foreign policy experience:

And what about Moran himself? What qualifies him to do whatever it is that he does?

We’re very curious, Terry.

    Soooooo… going by Terry Moron’s logic, Mitt is a good candidate for prez since he did missionary work overseas.

    • ceemack

      By Moran’s “logic”, we should have elected John McCain over Barack Obama.

      • carla5731

        Exactly! They didn’t question Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience (and every other kind of experience) in 2008. If they think he’s a credible leader then they should also give Rand Paul the benefit of the doubt or just finally admit they’re servants of the left.

        • Chalky

          Well, they don’t “think”, and “logic” is not part of their liberal utopia universe, so “servants of the left” seems about right.

          He could see Indonesia from his childhood house!

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Hey Terry. Look it up, if you have the Internet.

    This Obama attack dog is supposedly a reporter.


  • traffic_robot

    So is he saying that living overseas is enough qualification? So, when we ask what qualifications Obama has, it’s covered. Great distraction. Got it. Now, back to those dead Americans…

    • V the K

      Did Terry Moran question Hillary’s military qualifications when she was raking Gen. David Petraeus over the coals in 2007?

      • traffic_robot

        But, married to Commander in Chief…qualified!

    • ceemack

      How strong a qualification is it to be BORN overseas? Just curious…

    I went to a liberal arts college. Am I allowed to reject Progressivism in all its forms?

    • Alecia

      I say yes, because I did, too. It helped me realize all I didn’t want to be.

  • StandSomeMore

    Hey, Moran, why don’t you hang up and drive?


    dont worry Moran, everything in your life is going to be made public, what and how you do things, you better not be doing anything wrong, but you are a democrat so I am sure you are doing a lot of illegal crap. You and your familys day is coming.

  • Elaine

    All of a sudden he’s a reporter? Did he ever question Obama’s service or qualifications to be the Commander in Chief?

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to Liberal Today Terry Moran:

    When others who tire of your ludicrous, pandering and protect the DNC at all cost tweets, and use you for a Speed Bag. It’s time to rethink and/or stop tweeting.

  • Jim Denney

    We all (the taxpayers anyway) do charity overseas … just ask the Muslim Bro-hoods how they like those new F-16s, tanks, etc.

        You’re more upset about apartment buildings being built within the legal confines of one’s borders than you are about arming a hostile nation? Mmmmmmkay…

    he’s gonna feel this one for a few days

  • Christian Heiens

    Does Mr. Moran even KNOW what Rand Paul’s foreign policy is? He’s definitely not a chicken hawk at all.

    • Chalky

      Mr. Moran is a “journalist”. His job is not to KNOW anything, but to smugly peddle misinformation, lies, and personal biased opinions as fact and truth to low-information viewing masses, ie: to people such as himself.

  • TugboatPhil

    Mr Moran, Did you have personal experience as a sycophant prior to this job or did throne sniffing and rump swabbing come naturally to you?

  • grais

    Well, Terry, “What difference does it make?”

    • Marcy Cook

      ^^^^^ best post yet!!!!

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Oh, well played!

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      LOL nice one

  • Lord Foggybottom

    This bullshit always kills me. So it’s Ok when a Democrat doesn’t serve, but it’s not OK when a Republican doesn’t serve? I have two words for you double standard-bearers: fuck you.

    • Whirlwinder

      Very good, Lord. Lets just cut to the chase! We need to give them the international sign of ill-will too.


      The more we defy them the more their house of cards comes crashing down.

  • Thom Harris

    And people wonder why ABC moved Nightline from 11:30 to 12:35. Could be they understand that the quality has gone completely down.

  • jacksonjay

    Moran is a moron! He tweeted an off-the-record remark that Obama made about Kanye West! Then had to delete the tweet! Obama said “Kanye is a jackass”!

    He also said that Obama has two daddies! Dude is not very smart!

  • Mapache

    Obama lived overseas as a child. What was his foreign policy experience to question George W. Bush? What an idiot reporter.


    Curious, what’s your qualification for being a thinking person. Your Obama defense credentials are intact though.


    I wonder how many journalist recieved this talking point from the White House.

  • J.N. Ashby

    Interesting. Most of the politicians and pundits don’t have degrees in science, yet they LOVE pontificating about science issues…

  • AmandaJeff Day

    Is it just me, or does Moran look like one of those cross-eyed people that sued Navin R. Johnson for the Opti-grab?

        I just watched “The Jerk” a few days back…to be clear, I’m referring to the movie with Steve Martin…not the POTUS on TV.

  • dmacleo

    pretty sure he hasn’t acted like a hippie and protested against soldiers or been implicated in multiple deaths in any way.

  • Golphin

    Hey Terry,
    I hear Pamela Sue Anderson wants her lips back!

  • jdubya_az

    I never trust anyone in the media whose lips are pinker than salmon and more inflated than my mountain bike tires…

  • Garth Haycock

    What a moran, Moran is.

  • r_coplin2001

    Hey Terry Moran did Hillary Clinton or her boss President Obama serve in the military i didnt think so and what little i have seen of Hillary Clinton testifying before the Senate today i think Rand Paul was correct as she came in unprepared.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    LOL, Terry Moran is so stupid he can’t even spell his last name right.
