The way David Gregory was carrying on during today's Meet The Press, you would have thought that he was irked by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's revelation of only 105 thousand dollars in secret ObamaCare funding instead of the actual astounding 105 BILLION dollars. A clearly irritated David Gregory kept insisting that he only wanted to stick with "narrow budget questions" and acted increasingly frustrated as Bachmann kept returning to the 105 BILLION dollars of hidden ObamaCare funding that he did not want to even briefly talk about.
Here is a portion of the interview of a clearly upset David Gregory as you can see in this video who obviously did not want to deal in the slightest with Bachmann's revelation which would have been major news to the viewing public as well as a more detailed transcript below the fold:
REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: ...There was a Congressional Research Service report that just was issued in February, and we discovered that secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation to fund the implementation of Obamacare. This is something that wasn't known. This money was broken up, hidden in various parts of the bills. And we have worked very hard to discover $61 billion in cuts that we could put forward, get to the president. So, in effect, David, we've taken one step forward and two steps back because we've found now that $105 billion had already been implemented.
MR. GREGORY: All right. But that--but, Congresswoman, you heard the president this week offer...

I have very little use for David Gregory.
REP. MICHELE BACHMANN, That’s why we had a tea party. Good Girl !
People like Her doing the work we asked them to do.
Sometimes you have to talk past the leftwing censors.
David Gregory is married to the former General Counsel of Fannie Mae. His family has made millions off taxpayers.
Good for her!
This is the Democrats own tactic used back at them. Regardless the question (or answer), hammer your point repeatedly.
Don’t let them set the terms for debate.
Ol’ orangutan face Gregory...
This is how to treat a lamestream interview. Disregard the hosts silly questions and get your points out there. This was great. Screw you Gregory. You suck.
Bachmann did a great job on this interview.
Just as with Palin, Bachmann is also..... a rose with many thorns. ;>)
She schooled that fool today. That is how the GOP should handle the DNC/media.
David Gregory is a great AAA A!!Hole. And a jerk on top of that.
” A clearly irritated David Gregory kept insisting that he only wanted to stick with “narrow budget questions” and acted increasingly frustrated as Bachmann kept returning to the 105 BILLION dollars of hidden ObamaCare funding that he did not want to even briefly talk about.”
Yeah, old Horse Face can’t spin for the White House if someone is pointing out the shenanigans of the leftists.
I could campaign for this woman to be President - she's a lot more of a man than Obama.
Good for her, good for her. I guess that Obama was doing this. The idea is set up the governmental structure for Obama care so that even if it were repealed, it would be hard to get rid of the bureaucratic structure. This is exactly what Pelosi intended.
This has to be stopped. Where is Boehner and the rest of the GOP?
“Isn’t David Gregory Anderson Cooper’s girlfriend?”
I think Cooper is actually the “bottom”.
I love Michelle. You go!
Hooray for Michele Bachmann! She is wise to the ways of DNC Dave and refused to play his game.
Well, I have absolutely zero use for David Gregory and regularly e-mail MTP about his antics and biases. However, Michelle Bachman’s performance on MTP this morning was awful and embarrassing. She looked like a same old/same old politician....repeatedly never answered the questions being asked of her and kept going back to her $105 billion as the statement for everything being asked of her. No straight talk, whatsoever. It was a real disappointment.
