It's all about manipulating the headline.
Just by going by the headline alone, some would think this guy is a bigwig in the Republican party. I know that was my initial thought.
If this was a Democrat the headline would have went something like this.....wait never mind, it would not have been reported on in the first place.

Maybe it is my perception, but is he not mocking the venom that Tom was displaying? A sort of "If you are such a tough guy and so outraged, why aren't you doing this....?"
I mean it sure didn't sound like he was praising nor supporting Tom's position in the first place. Poor choice of words for a "wordsmith" and "image builder" that a political speechwriter is supposed to be. Might explain why he lost to Chuck Schumer in that Senate race by 18 points.
But never let a misspeak go to waste when your job is media spin to create bias and mock outrage. That is the new definition of journalism, is it not?
