The Talk Shows
Sunday, January 16th, 2011
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J.; former Gov. Tim Pawlenty, R-Minn.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Al Sharpton.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Gillibrand; Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; Gov. Ed Rendell, D-Pa.; former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Town hall discussion from Tucson, Ariz. (Enraged shot Leftist threatens TEA party Leader, gets arrested and put into mental observation)
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Reps. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., and Grace Napolitano, D-Calif.
He’s Bloomberg with just a different veneer, unfortunately.
Changing the subject, but how about Caroline Kennedy’s blackmail of ABC (A&E) into cancelling a 25 million dollar project?
I’m sure it was gonna be shallow and fawning and I probably wouldn’t have watched it, but how sensitive can you be. Some other reason than content since she refused to even watch the DVD they offered to send her.
Some people say that Caroline did not inherit the smarts of her parents. I think the problem is that she DID inherit the smarts of her parents.
Thank God, we have no more Kennedy’s in elected office. What a mutant strain of corruption was that family.
Offended? What did he do? I am a Christie fan, but overslept this morning.
I tuned in in time to see the “panel” crush Sarah’s video. The pompous jerks have no idea how much I LOVED Sarah’s video. And I am not a huge Sarah fan, more of a lukewarm one.
I think a l ot of this is about giving the sheriff who spoke out against anything sane a pass for letting Loughner off so many times in the past.
The sheriff of pima county is the guilty person here. He could have stopped a lot of this had ht put the nut job in jail or the loony bin as he should have.
Christie was elected because he wasn’t Corzine who was despised here in NJ
He talks at the teachers who deserve the condemnation but to date, after one year, nothing has changed. Not one thing.
I was gonna say it will be interesting to see the difference in coverage between this guy who actually indulged in political hate speech and the insane guy who had no concept of politics or reality.
However, why will it be interesting? It will be exactly what they always do.
Sadly, even many Republicans don’t understand the issue. The issue is not smoking, it’s about government control. If government can tell you when you can or cannot do something they can do it with something else. And on, and on, and on.
As US Attorney Christie put dozens of crooked lawmakers in prison. He didn’t lose a single case.
He was an excellent law enforcement officer. Not so good as getting things done in state government.
Amen, brother. Or sister.
As I’ve said, I’ll leave the Christie situation to those in NJ. For us in fly over country we enjoy watching him take the unions to task.
NJ has no Education Commission. We re missing one Judge on our NJ Supreme Court and yet he is running around the country feeding his ego.
NJ needs a committed leader, and he is not it!!!
And now the RINO Peter King has joined Bloomberg with his gun control meme.
I’m a total Sarah fan and her video was great. She said it all in 7 minutes.
I only watched the last 5 or so minutes of Christie when Wallace was harping on his running for President.
Everything he said was fine, except with my ‘Palin protective’ instincts out, I thought it was a tiny jab on Palin for him to say that 2 years as governor didn’t qualify him to be president.
How many years was Palin governor of Alaska? Yeah, right, and how many years did Obama do anything at all, or anything right? Zero years.
The first thing Sarah Palin did as mayor of Wasilla was ELIMINATE property taxes (a defacto seizure of private property).
Hah, so that explains why Christie is no Sarah fan.
She actually accomplished something he promised and failed to produce.
You’re exactly right about smoking.
There are so many maniacal smoking haters that they abandon their principles to agree with the smoking nazis.
I hope they remember that when the government takes away their hamburgers and chips.
This is a huge tax mostly on poor people (like my husband) and it infuriates me.
Face the Nation, Guliani defends Sarah Palin and her video. This had nothing to do with the left or right, but the mental state of Loughner.
Scheiffer asks Gov. Rendell about “civil discourse”. (I am SOOOOOOOOO sick of that phrase!!!) Rendell says we need a rational discussion on guns. Asks, “Does any citizen need a clip with 33 bullets in it?”
What liberals are trying to do is politicize mental illness so conservatives can be defined as mentally ill for not agreeing with liberal ideas. Being against homosexual rights is very close to being considered a mental illness even now. Wanting to have a gun in your home will be class as 'mentally ill' by liberals if they can use this crisis to achieve old goals in new ways.
Totalitarian first world cultures have used this tactic to take out opponents. Germany, USSR, etc... countries that are past the easy point of taking opponents out back and shooting them ( like Iran or North Korea ) have found 'mental illness' to be the tactic of choice.
Dems do NOT have good intentions... ever.
On Meet The Press they are talking about crazy people that are dangerous. And how they need to be handled. What strikes me as funny is that they turn a blind eye to the fact that islam wants to kill us all. They are all crazy.
He also looks exctly like the Jackwagon in the Geico commercial. Wallace should ask him if yellow makes him sad.
Liberals are responsible (a lot) for the condition of the mentally ill. I feel sorry for Loughner’s parents (well, a little sorry).
Once we could commit someone like this guy to a mental institution against his/her will after a fair hearing. I attended one many years ago with a friend whose husband needed to be committed.
Now, that can’t be done. What mentally ill person will agree to an institution. very few, so now they make up the majority of the homeless population, and some of them are dangerous.
This is the kind of thing that scares the Washington DC crowd, Republicans and Democrats alike. Sarah Palin HAS WALKED THE TALK. Governor Palin defeated both parties corruption and the recipients of her policies can’t stand that.
Voters, on the other hand, love her doing it. Which is why her popularity rating in Alaska was so high.
Yep, many are relishing in the goodies and aren’t able to see the disaster of the Democrat’s incomplete health care insurance reform bill, it should have been completely written before it was voted on. Instead, we were conned about all it would do, and now no one, not even elected Democrats, or business leaders, can predict what federal agencies will put in the bill. Great legislation while your side runs the show, but just wait till the tide turns...
Meanwhile the Obama march continues as the media and politicians divert our attention from what is significant we hear. The rest of the world could care less about mental illness in the US.
Ex: China is placing troops on the northern border of N.Korea now.
Would be great to hear the media report on this...and discussion of.
Yeah, I always thought Peter King was pretty good for a NYer pol. His ‘little people shall not have 2nd Amendment rights in the presence of big people’ bit, however, is absolutely appalling.
It was right after that when Eric Fuller stood up and yelled "you are dead!" to the Tea Party guy. Of course ABC edited that part out completely.
Bush never defended himself......Sarah does. I think she should. No one can take a constant pounding in the media, nor should they. I don’t care what the pundits determined was already decided, she had every right to say what she wants and she did an excellent job. Good for her. I guess the panel was offended that she didn’t leave it up to them to defend her. LOL
Yes, and one more example of unintended consequences pushed by the Democrats.
And yeah, it’s up to us the voters to determine who is qualified......it’s called a campaign. Sadly, too many voters are unqualified to do that, but that is our process.
That's when I decided that the Sunday shows are irrelevant to me.
If the Fox panel believes that Sarah Palin has allies who can act as spokesmen to the eyes and ears of the politically tuned-in, then they are as deluded as the bulk of the "commentators" on the other decidedly left-leaning shows.
Also, did I hear Brit mention that the Republicans are going to co-mingle at the SOTU gathering? Tomorrow will have to be a Call your Congressman day for me.
Or maybe he is advertising NJ to bring in businesses and bring back the loss in population. His honest, no messing around attitude is attractive to many and only can help NJ. Show appearances are a no-cost way to advertise. You would have to admit that he has done much more in one year than Corine and McGreevey put together, even with his tv appearances. My guess is Christie is a real leader that sticks to real business instead of making deals to pay union girlfriends and meeting “friends” in truck stops.
Thanks for checking in! I had been wondering what had happened to you.
Fox sucked today. The panel discussion about Sarah was meaningless, mean-spirited and totally unworthy of this fine woman. And for Juan Williams - of all people - to denigrate Sarah because she dared to fire back at her critics! Fans of talk radio know that Williams was ALL OVER THE PLACE after his firing, blasting his critics at NPR. When does the self-delusion and hypocrisy end??!
And Brit Hume’s - oh, so softspoken, I’m-so-sorry-but-she’s-a-loser and, of course, the female Quisling Mara Liasson chiming in on Sarah’s so-called self-pity.
And then, to top it off, the show ended with Chris Wallace showcasing his wife’s cooking abilities and pumping her new cookbook! What a disgrace.
Its funny you took that as a jab at Palin, I took it as a jab at Obama. Watch it again you may see it differently.
Intelligent conservative response: Hold up some wall calendars (the kind you used to get from funeral homes and real estate agents, the ones with seasonal pictures) and say, "The benefits of Obamacare don't come in until 2014. That's 3 wall calendars from now. 36 months. That gives us 2 years to develop a reasonable alternative, write a bill, have all the congressmen read it and understand it, and then vote on it. That's how grown-ups should make major changes."
Al Shaprton on the civility panel? I guess David Duke was busy and could not make it.
Gov. Pawlenty - yawn. He's like the Powerpoint presentation that puts airport security to sleep in the TV commercial.
Geeeeez-—IF my name was FLAKE—I would think strongly about a trip to court to change it, especially before I got into politics!!!
I shouted to husband, who sits over by his computer providing his own commentary, you folks would love him....YOU MEAN IN ALL OF AMERICA THEY CAN’T GET ANOTHER COMMENTATOR THAN AL SHARPTON?
Husband responds “this is the guy who caused a riot at Freddie’s Mart saying it was run by Jews. He’s the guy who called the prosecutor a rapist”...heh, husband knows a thing or two, you should smile. Brain infection didn’t hurt a thing.
Oh, and now I gotta stand up in front of my church and tell about his brain infection as part of comething called an “offertory reflection initiative”...you can’t make this stuff up. Anyhow, how long will they get away with this?
Al Sharpton gets legitimized somehow when they have him as guest.
But I guess that’s their plan, huh?
It was a Zogby poll. I hurried home from Church to watch FNS, only to get maaaaad.
I took it as a direct jab at Sarah Palin. Christie praises Obama and the subject and question was “why not run against him while you’re hot?”
For what it’s worth, I took that jab as one for 0 too.
On Pawlenty, is it just me or does anyone else see him as a Huckabee clone?
