Skip to comments.NBC's David Gregory: Christie Should 'Prove He Didn't Create an Atmosphere Where This Was Okay'
Posted on 01/10/2014 6:28:27 PM PST by Kaslin
A frontrunner for the award going to the most obvious media double standard of the week certainly has to be NBC reporter and Meet the Press host David Gregory.
Asking a question virtually no one in the press has asked about President Barack Obama in matters far weightier than Chris Christie's "Bridgegate," Gregory addressed the following tweet to New York Times White House Correspondent Peter Baker (HT Twitchy):
Gosh, I can think of another government chief executive to whom that question is far more relevant.
So can a lot of other tweeters who responded to Gregory's tweet (minor edits were done to certain of these tweets for clarity):
"I'll take "Questions I Don't Recall David Gregory Asking at the Start of the IRS Scandal" for $400, Alex."
"Hey, @DavidGregory, I'm looking, but I can't find the tweet where you say the burden is on Obama RE: IRS abuse. Can you link it? Thanks."
"I second the question. Ask the same question of Obama & the NSA, IRS, EPA, DOJ and on & on!"
"@davidgregory, how about proving @BarackObama did not create an environment where #IRS could TARGET conservatives w/impunity?"
"@davidgregory @peterbakernyt I'm not a Christie supporter but David, why aren't you asking the same question of Obama?"
I'd say it's because he wouldn't like the answer.
CC wanted to cuddle. So .let him cuddle. Who wants to hug him, now? Does anyone learn from this?
Kinda like the atmosphere the media has created where Obama knows that no tough questions will be ask no matter how outrageous or criminal his behavior.
Obama Should ‘Prove He Didn’t Create an Atmosphere Where Benghazi Was Okay’.
..and Gregory should prove he’s not sitting on a **** plug while doing his TV shtick.
What about Obama shutting down open air monuments and roadways with orders to “make it hurt.” Whatever Christie did was nothing compared to Obama’s shutdown tantrum. But, NO ONE in the media (including Fox) is mentioning this.
If Gregory wants to know if Christie created an atmosphere where this is OK, the answer is “No. Obama did!”
I feel the air going out of this, just as blowhards like Gregory are getting to the air...
DG should go home so his wife could speed slap him for being a moron.
Very well said
the thing about a conservative that is perceived to have sold out, is that he’s basically all alone, especially when he finds the msm has no use for him.
The Left-Wing America: GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT
I do not know if you realize this or not, but you are playing into the hand of the left.
“Wife?” That’s funny right there!
Festival Of Irony: Closet Homosexual David Gregory Reminds Closet Lesbian Janet Napolitano She Used To Be Opposed To Gay Marriage
David Gregory is married to BETH WILKINSON NBC White House correspondent and lawyer. Their kids go to private school.
Gosh Greg perhaps because you can’t prove a negative?
How about Obumma proving ANYTHING?
These hypocritical Democrat bastards are going to make Christie into a hero.
Disgust here but not surprise. After all this comes from NBC, which really ought call itself the Obama Network.
He’s a water carrying toadie.
How does he prove that????
Then you could demand that Obama didn’t create an atmosphere that encouraged the IRS to go after his enemies!
It’s New Jersey. Christie is a New Jersey politician. What more do we need to know?
His wife is a beltway criminal defense lawyer.
Yeah, so was Rock Hudson, Meredith Baxter, Elton John, Wanda Sykes, Oscar Wilde, Cole Porter and millions of other homosexuals...
And Gregory should have to prove he is a journalist.
Only a moron of the pervert persuasion, with the mandatory addled brain can ask, with a straight face, anyone to prove a negative, under any circumstances.
That is the flip side of Obungwad's unverifiable, moronic, "created or saved 5,000,000 jobs!"
It would be a blast if Christie was on NBC MTP Sunday!
See if Gregory can make the fat man dance LOL
Rather obvious why David Gregory was not prosecuted for a blatant crime (in D.C.) of possessing a standard capacity 30 round magazine, while lesser mortals are charged with similar crimes routinely.
“I find it very amusing that the MSM has dropped all pretense of being independent and non biased.”
It isn’t amusing at all; how can people who gave Otoken a pass when “his” IRS silenced the TEA Party groups prior to the election keep a straight face with this about Christie?
The bias has led to this token being elected twice, as well as delivering many congressional seats to the Party of Evil.
The Obama Administration Culture is based on lies, persecution of political opponents, and violating the US Constitution.
Under the leadership of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House John Boehner, the GOP Establishment Congressional Culture is based on becoming more like the Obama Administration Culture.
By design, the GOP Establishment has become a doormat speed bump for Obamacrat politicians on the very wide, and well lighted Highway to European Socialism.
Without the capable cave-in expertise of McConnell and Boehner, the successful fundamental transformation of America into a weak, financially devastated, morally corrupt, unreliable, former World Power would not have been possible.
To those US Senators and House members who still support McConnell and Boehner, remember Einsteins definition of insanity:
INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.
+1. I wish someone could respond publicly, to a wide audience, to this drivel.
Yet another example of the corrupt American Media determining the winners and the losers.
Glad some people are giving that commie rat some hell over this.
Hey Morph, let me know when Jim Thompson gets paid.
RE: “Plus, it is just delicious that the one they [MSM] are nailing to barn door is Christie.”
The MSM actually believe the polls that claim Christie is the first choice of Republicans for president.
It will take another day or two for them to realize that not one serious Conservative in the entire country has come to his defense.
When they understand that millions of Conservatives will stay home on election day if Christie is the nominee, the MSM will completely “rehabilitate” Christie within a few hours.
Obama has minions scouriing through police records for dirt on “Joe the Plumber”, “rogue” IRS agents harassing members of “tea party” conservative and “patriot” groups, GM dealerdhips closed based on party contributions, et al and they don’t give a $#^@.
Christie ain’t no pal of mine however you can’t “disprove a negative” and Obama has done far worse without any concern from the presstitute journo’list media.
I can’t stand David Gregory but does anyone really believe Christy wasn’t alright with this....really!!
I read where Gregory and Meet The Press were potential candidates for the Chopping Block.
Mark Shields on PBS last night was trying his best to make this into a significant scandal, but only had innuendo to work with. They spent an inordinate part of the Friday politics segment on this topic.
Don’t we have a standing bet on Jersey Boy?
Yes. Plenty of time
