Angry, frustrated, troubled, disappointed, disgust, disrespect - words not normally associated with holiday season. However, they were words Katie Couric used to describe where she sees the mood of country right now.
Couric, the anchor of the "CBS Evening News," in a live Facebook video chat on Dec. 22, took on illustrating her view of the populace - a not very sunny picture (emphasis added).
"I think more distant - I hate to say that, but I think, I think the economic situation in this country, I think, when people are struggling, that sometimes they need a place to vent their rage and to channel their rage and I think, I feel like right now in many ways, we're a very angry nation," Couric said. "Very frustrated, troubled and disappointed in many ways in terms of people feeling that the American dream just isn't within their reach. I mean I still think it's a place of incredible opportunity and entrepreneurship. But I just think that, I don't know - maybe it's because what I do for a living, I feel that the country is pretty polarized right now."

I’m sure that CBS is angry about her ratings....
Well Katie . . . some people don’t like fascism, no matter how good you might think it is for them.
I think....I think....I think....I think....
We are sick of being lied to and screwed over Katie.
When I agree with former KGB Putin more often than my own countries President there’s a problem, and yes I’m angry about it.
It would fill a book.
No sh_t, Sherlock.
Hey Katie...... Its going to be open season on presstitutes
Better catch a plane
Yes, I’m sure it just flabbergasts the Democrats that someone might be angry about 1/6th of the U.S. economy being taken over by what is supposed to be a Constitutional Representative form of government, an unConstitutional move that’s opposed by most of the public.
Katie, you’re a clueless hag.
Maybe they are angry because everyone lies to them, including Katie.
What Katie didn’t say...
“but Obama could never in a million years have the slightest thing to do with it. It’s inconceivable that anyone could be angry because of him.”
Couric can blame her magic negro for all the ills of this nation.
He has spewed hatred, unemployment, fear, and disrespect for everyone who sees through his ignorant attempts at ‘intelligent diplomacy’.
He’s made America weaker with his arrogance and ignorance.
His associates all hate freedom and hate America.
Thanks msm, for bringing this monstrousity to the white house.
The stereotypes just confirm themselves with these idiots...
don't say it
All I can think of is: No S__t, Sherlock!!!
Yikes! What a fraudulent pile of cat excrement this marxist pig is...
It's because of what she and the other marxist-butt-sucking scum do for a living that we are in this pre-planned, tyranny-driven polarized mess....
Buy a clue airhead...go do some interviews in Flyover Country..by yourself...without your multi-million dollar SeeBeeSss entourage pre-shaping the interviewees. You’ll get an eyeful and an earful.
“And you know, I’m all for people having free speech and expressing their views and we’ve talk about this a lot and I hate to sound like a broken record, but I wish there was a way for all of us to discuss our differences without being - digging in our heels so much and being respectful of other people’s points of view. But it all seems to be expressed through kind of a prism of anger and disgust and disrespect, which I find really - really troubling and upsetting.”
Katie doesn’t like the way we talk about her pres_ent. Oh well, too bad, so sad. I’ve had to put up with left wing crap for eight years.
Stick it up your colon, Katie.
Where’s that perky picture of Katie dancing? That will make people less angry/sarc
Americans are angry
With your warped Communist ilk.
Stop Polarizing American’s country and fight for it instead. Question authority, investigate power, and follow the money.
Katie we are liquored up an pissed off. You better duck.
Couric is employing her super-secret chopped-blond professional corporate journalist superiority mind-control wide-eyed hypnosis sympathetic understanding command talk to suggest that now that her communist faction has raped the country half to death and is going to give a double-tap screw on Christmas eve before sending grandma to the grave while the politicians exempt themselves and drink champagne, that maybe the conservatives should resort to violence so that martial law can be imposed and the concentration camps can start up at long last.
But you’re not supposed to see her trying to suggest that, so just forget it and obey her secret-encoded mater subliminal suggestion, ya hear, flyover peasant?
I wish this braindead Obama cheerleading skank would shut up. I have no idea what this dork is talking about? I mean all is well, unemployment at high 16-18% levels. Obama is a Muslim with no papers in the White house. The media plays one party against the other...this stupid B*tch doesn’t know what she’s talking about. I think things are just great....no anger here. :)
“but I wish there was a way for all of us to discuss our differences without being - digging in our heels so much and being respectful of other peoples points of view.”
It is my point of view that my liberty, property and labor are not the state’s to do with as it pleases . . . so when is she going to start respecting that?
Land sakes! Golly gee. Lil’ Katie thinks Americans are being ever so mean!! Has it occurred to you Katie that Americans are fed up and boiling mad at the imposition of socialism? That the great majority of Americans are disgusted with this poseur of a president and his thuggish cronies? Good Lord this is one very stupid and vapid woman.
So the Great Uniter is anything but?
Maybe it's just, I don't know, maybe your, you know, your inability to, well, I guess what I'm trying to say is that , uh, maybe you're just too, well, stupid I guess, to figure out whats, well, going on without relying on one of those, you know, telereader things, that, you know, tell you what to say.......
Stupid broad.........you don't do anything for a living other than read a teleprompter........
Witch, you haven’t even seen angry yet!
Oh, we are very angry.
They think we will cool down?
I saw another thread where you refered to a certain politician as a Judas Priest!
Reminded me of some angry music from my youth.
Darn right we’re an angry nation. We’ve got a bunch of Socialist Pigs trying to control every aspect of our lives.
Give me a baseball to dunk this stupid old slut.
Katie is part of the MSM that has done nothing but smile at conservatives while attempting to show her disdain of them behind the toothy smile (Sarah Palin interview established that). She's part of the problem, and nothing she can perkily say or do will change viewers opinion of her (and her shenanigans). She helped chase them straight to Fox News.
Angry? No. We’re awake. We’re powerful, and we’re mobilizing.
And that scares Katie so much that she thinks it’s anger...
Bears, tigers, and lions can be caricatured into being angry animals... but the reality is they are just the most powerful, intimidating creatures in their environment... and little weasels like Katie rightfully fear them.
Dennis Miller is that you??? ; ~ )
I am not struggling and I am mad as hell. I vent on my Communist representatives in house and senate Pomroy, Conrad and Dorgan but since they no longer answer their phones and their voice mail and email are full, where do I vent. I know where and how I would like to vent but we are not there yet. Screw you, Katie Couric.
Her whole approach here is like listening to a high school student.
A grown woman with an adolescent mentality and people are supposed to listen to her for information and commentary. Good grief.
God I love it! America waking up to what they voted in.
I think, I think the economic situation in this country, I think, when people are struggling, that sometimes they need a place to vent their rage and to channel their rage and I think, I feel like right now in many ways, that Katie Couric is an idiot.
Katie is dumb as a box of rocks.
Everyone needs to send Katie a color wheel...her problem is total reliance on commie grey.
