MSNBC Info-Babe to Congressman: ‘Do you have a degree in economics?’ ‘Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors’

MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, you may remember just yesterday said the attack on Rupert Murdoch at a hearing encapsulated what the British were feeling.

Today, Contessa “educated” a conservative Representative that if Congress does not raise the debt raising, the country would be “reverting into a depression.” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he disagreed which prompted the MSNBC host to ask him if he had a degree in economics.

“Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors,” Rep. Brooks responded.

According to his Congressional page: “Mo graduated from Duke University in three years with a double major in political science and economics, with highest honors in economics. In 1978, he graduated from the University of Alabama Law School.” - realclearpolitics

Never, ever ask a rhetorical question you don’t know the answer to.

One dumb babe.

The first thing one learns as a progressive tv propagandist is...never ask an enemy a question you don’t know the answer to.

Yes, and your Journalism “degree” is a sham and a joke compared to more legitimate areas of study.

I heard this on a local radio show in California and came to see if it was posted. I'm glad it's being shared far and wide.

Why doesn’t the “contessa” ask Obama, Pelosi or Reid if THEY have degrees in economics.

The dual standard employed by the mass of the public media has really reached the point of TOTAL insufferability.

These people MUST be countered SOMEHOW!!!!

You don't need a degree in economics anyway, to understand debt/GDP, $1.5 Trillion/year deficit spending, and what has happened to Euro countries that went 120% debt/GDP. It's pretty simple stuff.

Even simpler, any household that manages its budget properly understands spending too much makes for headaches.

But geniuses like Contessa Brewer don't get that, along with half of Congress.

He should have also said, “And based on your stupid questions I can tell your degree is in communications.”

Contessa Brewer's has a degree in communications and a career in parroting Democrat Party talking points.

PMSLSD is really turning into the Comedy Channel this week. This is hilarious. I hope they keep the hits right on coming.

The only reason she still has a job in news is because the whole NBC network is filled with stupid people. She fits in. Don Imus kicked her off his show when he was there because she was even to dumb to read the news off a teleprompter. Priceless.

Govt and the Fed are full of Ivy League economists and as a result we are in a deep deep financial mess. We need someone who knows how to balance a check book and run a company. The ruling crowd has failed and needs to be replaced.

On the banner of that screen shot, it says 58% support Obama's debt plan.

PLAN, but...but... didn't we just hear from the press sec that he does not have a plan???

She’s a decent looking woman, but she has a serious man-jaw. Supposedly, that type of masculinized woman is the most likely to cheat on her mate.

According to Wikipedia, Brewer has a B.S. in “Broadcast Journalism” from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, awarded in 1996. It says she graduated magna cum laude. Lots of economics, mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering etc. are included in the discipline of “Broadcast Journalism”. This must be true because Contessa Brewer sounds so smart on TV.

She has a degree in “Communications”, basically, a degree on talking into a microphone and reading from a teleprompter.

The Respnse was:
"Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors,” Rep. Brooks responded.

The Better response would be:
"Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors, and do you have a Journalism degree?

Wait for it...

Then you should go back to that college and get your money back.

When I was at Wayne State University in the early 1970’s I observed that the only major field of study that was “less rigorous” than elementary education was journalism.

This illustrates why teachers and journalists are not the cream of the intellectual crop.

I myself was thinking of course of the letter “a,” as in cant, i.e., “monotonous talk filled with platitudes; hypocritically pious language.”

But you...and “u”...my guudness!
