Katie Couric: Will Brits Blame Tony Blair for Attacks?
Newsmax ^ | July 8, 2005

Posted on 07/08/2005 7:10:22 PM PDT by ArmyBratproud

Most pundits gave Prime Minister Tony Blair rave reviews yesterday after he assured a his stunned nation that al-Qaida's attack on London would not persuade him to abandon the war on terror.

But NBC's Katie Couric apparently wasn't impressed.

Covering the aftermath of the attacks live with NBC "Nightly News" anchorman Brian Williams, the "Today" show hostess observed: "He is quite a polarizing figure in Great Britain. I know his support of President Bush, his support of the Iraq war, has won him, actually, a lot of enemies."

Citing a recent poll that showed 68 percent of Brits opposed the Iraq war, Couric suggested that they might actually blame Blair for the attacks, wondering aloud, "Do you think this is going to create more antagonism toward the British prime minister?"

Fox News radio host Tony Snow, who aired the Couric clips on his Friday broadcast, sympathized with Williams, who had to sit by as his NBC colleague struck one negative note after another.

"If I'm Brian Williams, I'm hating life" during Couric's rant, said Snow.

Or perhaps the Brits will blame the killer Muslim terrorists for the attacks...? This would surely place Ms. Couric in the hissy.

It's interesting that the hopes of liberals coincide so closely with the hopes of Al Qaeda.

Katie should be forced to register as a Democratic Activist.
Every 10 minutes on the show a banner would display that she is a Democratic hack.

To think, the Libs in this country used to love Tony Blair. Until he befriended G.W.B. and proved to be above politics by standing beside us in the WOT. The first they might forgive, the second they find unforgiveable. How sick is that? Someone that doesn't give a damn about public opinion because his citizens are in jeopardy and Katie hopes he pays a severe price for it.

I wonder what a new poll would say. The Brits are not very different than Americans when it comes down to it. Our polls show similar numbers. But we're 4 years after 9/11 and the simple among us forget. The Brits, God bless 'em, have it fresh in their minds. These are the same Brits that brought along nukes to the Falklands. They're a good people.

I really doubt a big you know what would even impress her at this point. She turned into a zombie years back never to return to the realities of life. Dumb blonde airheads are way beyond her at this point.

Katie Couric: Will Brits Blame Tony Blair for Attacks?

I'm sure she's hoping, with fingers crossed and baited breath (but not prayers). Oh, what a good little gardener she is, planting the seeds of lies, deception and dissension. Hitler and other dictators could use/have used an 'aid' like her, a good little helper.

All of the MSM outlets need to register as 527's. See BS, NBS, ABS, NPR-BS, MSNBS, CNN-BS, al-Jazeera-BS, etc.

The perky Katie has aligned herself with the hate-America-first, blame-America-first crowd. Is she getting her talking points from the DNC or al-Qaida? They seem to be the same.

Fox has been accused of being hard-right, but it is far more balanced than anything else you'll see on the boob-tube, yet they are criticized. Go figure.

Catie's role has helped tag her network appropriately as:

National
Bolshevik
Community

It is Catie's producers that feed everything in from the A.N.S.W.E.R. supported shadow groups.

She assumes the Brits will blame Blair because, if we experience another terrorist attack in the U.S., she believes we should blame Bush.

Don't forget "old" and "wrinkled", just to be certain.

This woman OBVIOUSLY has NO clue.

IF, as she suggests, Blair is polarizing...how in the hell did he make history (post-Iraq) by being the first Labour leader to win a general election in the UK.

I would suggest that Ms. Couric buff up her political science. Or, at least, read a UK paper, other than the Guardian, on occasion.

I'm kinda amused by Katie. I live overseas and get back to the states for two weeks out of each year. I'll turn on the tv and watch the Today program for maybe the first two mornings there...and start laughing at her attempts to play a real news person...and by the third day...I just switch over to Fox.

Most folks I know in the south...rarely take her serious. I suspect that her power base is the New England area and California. If I were Fox...I'd bring on some female comedian for a month, to imitate Katie...and make a total fool of the gal.
