Anyone watching the press conference about the accidental shooting in Texas?

Posted on 02/13/2006 9:39:43 AM PST by tsmith130

What keeps McCellan from taking off his shoe and throwing it at these people?! I'd last a nanosecond in that job. They keep badgering him about the EXACT time of everything. They're pissing over a few hours!

Yes. The way the press is acting you would think the VP did it on purpose.

Sheesh! What a bunch of world class weenies.

They keep harping on why it took 22 hours to let the press in on it.

The reporters are histrionic about the incident. Excited screeching, waving hands. The only quiet one in the group so far is Helen Thomas.

He should respond by saying, "Even though it took a while to
get all the facts, at least the Vice President did not leave the injured person there to die overnight, like Ted Kennedy did!"

Someone on another thread suggested if McClellan was questioned about the delay in reporting, he should answer with one word: Chapequiddick!

This was an accident BUT if they want to imply it was done on purpose, they have a right to say that Dick did not do it correctly.

The Clinton thugs were much more efficient as they left no witnesses to their many deaths ruled suicides.

And that's probably because she's sulking, wishing it were Cheney who had been shot, and wishing that it had been fatal.

The WH press are outraged that they were not notified first. McClelland should say that any talking head is as good as another and that the fact the WH press was not first is immaterial and that they should get off their high horse.

What it is, seems to be the representatives from the DNC there are trying to find, any sort of nugget in that news media that might suggest a conspiracy.


"Should VP Cheney offer his resignation?" Jeeze..

I wish Ari was back. McClellan always looks like a deer caught in the headlights.

The press is treating this like it is Watergate.

One insinuated (that guy with the gray hair) that checking the lawyer's medical condition shouldn't take that long and SOMEONE should have been calling AP post haste even before the injured got to the emergency room.

Just another excuse to bash the Bush Administration.

Good Lord, now they are comparing this to Hurricane Katrina!

That was stupid. Hunting accidents are not a joke.

And Cheney's office was stupid for sitting on this for so long. It's a very newsworthy story, and it only creates the appearance of wrongoing to take that long to report it.

I had Fox News on for awhile yesterday. One of their infochicks was interviewing some "expert" about the Cheney accidental shooting and -- I kid you not -- the Fox infochick asked the "expert" to explain what it meant when the quail flushed because she didn't know.

My theory is that Gregory got the tar beat out of him in high school and now is trying to get back at people by annoying everyone to distraction.

Incredible! Each one is trying to out do the other and they are making fools of themselves. They are like sharks in a feeding frenzy. McClellan may know his stuff, but I wish he would really take charge and do a Rumsfeld or a Bolton or who was that great National Guard General? Put these poeple in their places!

They better be careful about what they ask for. Can you imagine VP Condi Rice?

From what I've seen, the MSM is trying to develop a story line that Cheney attempted to cover up the accident. That is why the exact timeline is so important. Remember you heard it here first.

McCellan should just fess up and admit that Cheney is a member of the Crips; he felt dissed by a blood and since he didn't have his glock, he popped some buck in his face, old school style, BOOOOOOOOY!

Now someone who has some sense is asking about nonproliferation treaties.

I'm sure the other reporters are rolling their eyes like high school kids and sighing and ready to get on with demanding the exact timeline (to the second) of the shooting and reporting of it.
