Posted on 03/04/2010 3:42:35 PM PST by Nachum
NBC's Tom Brokaw, in searching for a reason as to why Obamacare faced so much opposition, on Thursday's Today show, determined it was because the people can't quite grasp it, as he sniffed: "The public is very confused." The former NBC Nightly News anchor, on to promote his CNBC documentary about the Baby Boom generation, also told Today co-anchor Matt Lauer that the GOP was fighting the current version of the health care bill for merely "political" and not principled reasons and depicted the uninsured as victims to the now powerful tea party.[audio available here]
For his part, a bewildered Lauer expressed disbelief at the unpopular state of the Democratic Party right now as he questioned Brokaw:
"Could you have imagined that a year later the President's popularity numbers would be dwindling, the Democratic Party would be reeling and they'd be justifiably nervous about the midterm elections?"
The following exchange was aired on the March 4 Today show:
MATT LAUER: Let's move on to health care, another subject that's a lightning rod. The President now says he'll go it alone with the Democrats in the Senate and, and in the House, this reconciliation idea. You only need 51 votes. But it's not clear whether he has those votes.

No, it is you Tom who are confused over a great many things!
Tom is a frickin propaganda stooge.
The public has their ducks in a row - the Democrats don’t.
I’m glad that he’s outed himself for who he is.
Man the old farts cling to past glory . Go home you old fool .
Sure Tom, it’s the process that failed here. Sure it is. Those 47 speeches that Obama gave promoting this piece of crap simply weren’t enough to explain it to the American people. Right.
How did Dan Rather put it in 92? The voters went on a TEMPER TANTRUM..?
Can’t wait until the State Controlled Media is HISTORY!
They may commit hari-kari this November when the Tsunami hits.
Being confused over healthcare Tom beats being just plain confused.
Tom is senile
Come on Tom don’t you remember when a very wise President once said at his fist inaugural “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
I read the entire House bill and the entire Senate bill. Did Brokaw? I watched days of testimony in person, paying attention to the content. Did Brokaw? I looked at how the ideas in the bill have worked in other countries that tried socialized medicine. Did Brokaw? I looked at the economic incentives and how they would affect cost and quality. Did Brokaw?
One of us is confused, and Brokaw thinks it’s me.
Yup, exactly Bambi’s view, that he hasn’t “talked enough” about it to the dumbass American people, otherwise they would be stampeding to get ObamaCare.
Poor Tom, he is just another slave on mac daddies plantation.
Has anyone noticed that Brit Hume and Tom Brokaw sound almost exactly alike?
Isn’t Tom Brokaw the CANADIAN guy who owns a ranch and shoots WOLVES on it?
As an alien here hosted in our country, why do we rely on him to explain our political system..?
NBC = BAD JUDGMENT
