David Gregory's Long Tall Smooch To Obama
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/01/2011 6:18:23 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

President George W. Bush's nickname for David Gregory was "Stretch." True to his moniker, the elongated Meet The Press host gave an extended, three-part smooch to President Obama during his appearance on this morning's Today Show.

Speaking with weekend Today co-host Jenna Wolf: Gregory reported favorably on: 1. the Tripoli bombing that might have killed members of Khaddafy's family; 2. the president's handling of the devastating tornadoes that hit the South; and 3. how the president and Seth Meyers supposedly got the best of Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

The despicable personal attack on Trump (and Republicans in general) by Seth Meyers was the lowest form of gutter politics and at a supposedly “non-partisan event. Obama wasn’t funny, he was haughty and condescending.

I was floored when I found out he was married w/children. I thought he was an openly gay man in a relationship with another man. Isn’t he? Am I wrong? Very confused.

Trump is one bee’s nest zero shouldn’t poke with that stick. If you think zero is sinking in the polls now, Trump could put him at terminal velocity.

Even David Gregory’s hair is embarrassed by him.

DNC Dave would be lost without his daily WH taking points. If he was even half as intelligent, suave, influential and important as he thinks he is, he would be quite something.

Exactly the 3 topic Gregory had be instructed to focus on by the Obama Admin. Sickening propagandists.

The despicable personal attack on Trump

We have a saying here in Texas that maintains that: "When you f__k with the bull you get the horn". I'm thinking that zero is in for a real goring.....

Remember when he reported on air, drunk as a skunk, from India or somewhere?

I thought he was gay too.

I’m watching Gregory on Meet the Press right now. He behaves as if he is on the Obama re-election campaign payroll. He gets angry if any guest strays from the Obama approved talking points. The man is a simpleton. He’s extraordinary in that he genuinely seems to believe any tall-tale talking point he is supplied by the White House. Obama and his inner circle must secretly have a good laugh at just how pliable this half-wit is.

He has a face made for radio.
Every time I see that ugly freak, I wonder how it is that he gets a network TV job. Ugh.

Now on Meet the Press, David is airing clips of comedians re-iterating Barry’s approved talking points. David Gregory feels that parroting the party line himself for 45 minutes is not sufficient, he has to parse through footage of PC comedians to find additional backup for Barry’s fictional talking points.

The plan better be to commit “Death to Smoochies” in the MSM or our country will never get rid of pro-socialist people in the media.

listening to his glib comments concerning the bombing and targeting of Khadaffy’s family, I can't help but wonder if they would be the same if terrorist targeted zero's daughters

When Bush was President, there was a joint press conference when Bush visited France. After asking Bush a question in English, Gregory turned to Jacques Chirac and asked him in French if he wanted to make a comment.

It was obviously done to show off Gregory's knowledge of French, but more importantly as an attempt to humiliate Bush by showing that he does not speak French. Very tasteless.

In fact, according to Bill Sammon, the question Gregory had asked Bush in Paris was why were there such strong sentiments against him and his administration in Europe.

Try to imagine Gregory pulling something like that on Obama or any Democrat President.

I remember seeing that live and I also remember that W was not at all pleased and called out DNC Dave for pulling a cheap shot.
