The Talk Shows
Sunday, April 5th, 2009
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): David Axelrod, White House senior adviser; Gov. Mark Sanford, R-S.C.; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.; Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Fritz Henderson, chief executive officer of General Motors Corp.; William Rodgers, chief economist at the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

STATE OF THE UNION (CNN) : Henderson; Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; Jack Welch, former chief executive of General Electric Co.; Axelrod.
My understanding is the networks usually ask committee heads to appear, so Pence and others were rarely given a chance. I agree with what you said, but I believe the GOP leadership let the base down as much as the Bush White House.
Locally, we hear more from Tom Tancredo here now than we ever did when he was a US Representative. It’s as though the media just found out he lives here and has opinions worth reporting on.
It is so easy to be Arianna. She lives in a world where she just makes up her own facts and then extrapolates from there.
Kind of like VandenHuevel.
“Shoes on a fish?” Might as well go the whole feminist route and make them bicycling shoes on a fish! ;-)
The biased left-wing media is the greatest enemy to our country.
Worse than terrorists or activist leftist judges, I think.
Because they keep the masses ignorant of the truth.
Fox News just had a segment with FR’s own, LS-—
LS was saying that he has read many of the history textbooks being used right now, in elementary, secondary, and university history classes.
He said they are filled with inaccuracies, and out right LIES about what actually happened.
He said in one book the “war on terror” is already being taught “wrong”.
All that means that we may all, like Pres. Bush, hope that “history” will set the record straight and be much more kind to him, but, if we are counting on our next generations that isn’t going to happen.
He who books the guests....
the staggered and stacked rubble for The WT Towers had more structure integrity that Afghanistan
One of the chatting heads on MTP ranted on about how zero had to go in and "change the venue for the US in Europe after 8 years of GW of words to that effect, insinuating we were so hated by the Europeans or Bush did such a lousy job of representing us.
Guess they all forgot about Condi and others who did "anything" but screw things up like hillary is sure to do!!
Truth is we were respected. Now we are becoming a laughing stock.
like Arianna never knew her ex hubbie was not a sodomite, please
the bitch marxist w/ the pouty lips
Is this the real ID of Totus?
Well, it's no wonder!
We can’t prove a negative. What mtnwmn said coincides with my memory as well.
It’s kind of like Obama changing from promising to create millions jobs to saving or creating millions of jobs. Nobody can quantify how many jobs are “saved.” But I would bet Obama and his gang will make that claim.
They created lie after lie about him and his adm. and he seldom came out with both guns blazing. Big mistake IMHO. We would all have supported him if he had.
Wow...I’m so glad you shared his story. Because of you, he will live on. Thank you and God Bless Ed Freeman!
Yeah she is a typcial lib,has half the story and only repeats the leftist pap over and over.
wouldn’t have worked......the DBM would twist, lie or avoid showing it. What Dubya should have done is knock the teeth outta a reporter live on t.v.
Thank you for posting our dear Laura’s pics. What a lady. She made us so proud.
LOL especially after watching some of the video clips people have posted on FR!
My, my, not one word about Barky prostrating himself before King Abdullah. Indicates clearly just how bad it really was.
They cannot, however, prevent people from finding out about it. It is all over the internet.
Perhaps someone could come up with a method to hack that teleprompter from a remote location....
Thanks, but not because of me.
Because of who he is and what he did.
Morning AB, All.
Just got back from mass...Palm Sunday.
As always, thanks for doing this thread AB and trust y’all had a good week and have a fine holy week upcoming.
Going into bedroom to eat lunch and hope to get caught up by reading the thread.
Meanwhile, about Notre Dame...how about they let the President speak...he is the President of the U.S. after all and his speech time would be because of that alone.
But DON’T give the guy that honorary diploma. He most certainly does NOT deserve it, he is against everything the Catholic church most holy.
Why can’t they do this compromise as I suggest above?
Scary analyis but hard to argue with.
Did anyone on the Sunday shows talk about him bowing to the Saudi King?
As one poster here put it
“What is thy will, my Master”
Nope! Published online by Time Magazine!
Ever heard of a walking catfish,now they need shoes.
seen the nasty fellers
No thanks to Google, though, as yesterday I search "Obama bow Saudi king" and got pictures of George Bush leading the elderly former king by the hand, single pics of Obama, or single pics of the king.
That in itself is a scandal.
Absolutely Carley many of us were there to defend the president if we would just have taken it to the rats for all the insults and lies but he didn’t do it, near enough.
Im convinced Obama is nothing more than a walking PR person, trying to sell the ideas of those who are telling him what to say and do.
There is no way a community organizer, with an affirmative action law degree from Harvard, knows economics, history, civics or anything else of how the world works. He has his idealism but no clue what that means or what will happen if he accomplishes what he thinks he wants to do.
Imagine that the movie “Dave” was called “Vladimir” instead....
And how long would it have taken them to start ridiculing Bush for trying to "rewrite" history?
Picture this: A 10 second bite of Bush promoting one of his successes, followed by a 5 minute report beginning with the phrase, "In a desperate attempt to deceive the American people and selfishly save what's left of his failed presidency...."
Now picture it on all 5 anti-Bush networks every night for 2,000 consecutive nights.
I’ll sum up David Axelrod’s appearance on this morning’s Fox News Sunday: “Uh, uh, uh, uh... we inherited this mess... uh, uh, uh... Bush’s fault... uh, uh, uh, uh....”
Summing up David Axelrod’s appearance on this morning’s Fox News Sunday: “Uh, uh, uh, uh... we inherited this mess... uh, uh, uh... Bush’s fault... uh, uh, uh, uh....”
They design every speech to accurately reflect what each audience wants to hear!
Bearing that in mind makes everything really flow. You can almost predict what they will say.
In front of Europeans just say the US sucks, in front of unions say mgmt. sucks an you will protect them. In response to sagging numbers just say what the audience wants to hear.
None of it ever has to be true only what the audience wants to hear at the time.!!
Works for a while.
Hitting it a little early today are we Ad Guy?
RIP, Ed Freeman.
Kind of funny, the way you put it. Scary too.
Except by ourselves. And maybe that's enough.
Don't let that happen to GW-I and -II guys. Or the GWOT.
I’ll bet zero does not use the word “sucks” in front of his homosexual special interest group supporters.
Slick move by Barky. He knows GW had an excellent relationship with the Saudis an it prevented oil shortages on a world wide basis more than once. So what does he do, take a bow.Slick a-hole.
You can only do that if you hate America,and IMHO he does.
the long knives came for Bush when in 2000 Bush said Jesus was the greatest philosopher, that was the drive by’s keyword to “crucify” Dubya
Not even good for bait!
sober as a baby here
Yes you are. You are one of the bravest, most respectful, and knowedgeable honorary American we all know.
Nope, he’s just as frustrated as the rest of us.
(Although he can talk/write about something that would only be an emotional satisfaction, while the action of shutting the [BLEEP]s off and breaking them financially might be more time-consuming but just as nice as kicking their arses all around the block. Does anybody really even care about what Dan Rather is doing anymore?)
I remember also that Merkel's husband accompanied her on at least 2 visits that GWB made to Germany including a hog roast and I think may have even come to States. Why do I mention this because he very rarely ever seen in public with Merkel as it is rumoured their political views are not similar and that he is not that much of a political animal so for him to be with her during GWB's visits indicate this was considered a special event.
Found it yes her husband did accompany her to the States and in fact they visited President Bush's own raunch in Crawford
