    Vice President Joe Biden, going further than any other high-ranking American official to date in questioning the validity of last Friday’s election, said Sunday that “there's some real doubt" that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was legitimately re-elected as president of Iran.
  • King Abdullah's Hypocritical Torture Discourse on Meet The Press

    04/27/2009 8:18:16 AM PDT · by Shellybenoit · 4 replies · 297+ views
    Yesterday, Jordan's King Abdullah the Diminutive was interviewed on Meet the Press. Along with his usual discourse of "the Israel/Palestinian issue is the cause of all problems of the world" the King also had some choice words about the "enhanced interrogation techniques that the US practiced the Islamist terrorist. Kind of strange though, since the Hypocritical King is a big proponent of torture in his own country Jordan (the original Palestinian State).... ..King Abdullah, the Hypocritical said definitively that his country does not torture. Since Mr. Gregory would never challenge the King when he is bashing the US, I guess...

    THE SHOW "Meet the Press," hosted by David Gregory. WHEN|WHERE Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on WNBC/4 REASON TO WATCH That is the question, and one President Barack Obama apparently asked himself, too, as he bypassed TV's venerable Sunday news institution for another show on the very same network - "The Tonight Show" - where he'll appear tonight to talk about the stimulus package. WHAT IT'S ABOUT The president's decision to slip past "Meet the Press" would seem like a massive diss of new host Gregory - in the job three months - but this is politics, and politics is to...

    [video of interview, and Krusty the Clown] The Obama administration is beginning to look like one of those clown cars. The door flies open and dozens of clowns pour out. Christin Romer, the latest clown and chairwoman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisors, attempted to snow host David Gregory on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Gregory wasn’t buying. GREGORY: So back then during the campaign when Senator McCain talked about the strong fundamentals of the economy, it was then-candidate Obama and his team that roundly criticized McCain, saying he was out of touch, he didn’t get it, he didn’t understand...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - NBC News picked veteran Tom Brokaw to moderate "Meet the Press" through the 2008 U.S. election season, NBC News President Steve Capus said on Sunday. Tim Russert, the longtime host of the Sunday morning news program who was known for his interviews of leading U.S. political figures, died of a heart attack on June 13. He was also the television network's Washington bureau chief.

In a panel discussion with political consultant Mike Murphy during Sunday's "Meet The Press," Russert revealed that Clinton is ducking an appearance on his show. Said Russert: "Last week we had Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee on 'Meet the Press.' This week we had John McCain. We invited Senator Clinton, she declined our invitation. Doing very few media interviews. I am told she might be doing 'Access Hollywood' on Monday." Murphy commented: "Yeah, I...

    despite those serious differences, I thought there was much to like and admire about Ron Paul. What I had always appreciated about him was his outspoken support for the Constitution, the fact that he didn't get caught up in the trappings of Washington power, that he wasn't a hypocrite. I believed all that. And I have to thank Tim Russert for blowing his cover. I just simply didn't know that Ron Paul plays the Washington racket just like the rest of the gang. The only difference is he has figured out a system of plausible deniability for himself – a...

    When Chris Wallace replaced Tony Snow as the host of “Fox News Sunday” in December 2003, the network appeared to take a more moderate approach to Sunday talk. Unlike Snow, a former Republican speechwriter, Wallace’s broadcasting résumé included nearly three decades at mainstream media staples ABC and NBC. And Wallace even snagged Howard Dean — who hadn’t been on the Fox network in five years — as his first guest; fellow presidential hopefuls John F. Kerry, Dick Gephardt and John Edwards rounded out the month. But this election cycle, said Wallace, some Democrats aren’t “playing ball” with him — or...

    Fred Thompson took his acid bath this morning on Meet the Press. Measured by the traditional standards of Sunday morning political theater, it was an uneven performance. Fred did well on international affairs and "stumbled" on domestic policy. His answer on abortion in particular will come as an uncomfortable revelation to some of his more conservative supporters. I have a team of Jesuits attempting to unravel the yarn-balled logic of Fred's rambling answer, but it appears to boil down to this: "I'm 100 percent pro-life and have voted 100 percent pro-life. I hope one day Roe will be overturned and...

    Those expecting to see a train wreck this morning when Fred Thompson appeared on "Meet the Press" must have come away disappointed. Though Tim Russert was his usual aggressive self, Thompson held his own and committed no gaffes of the sort that have plagued his campaign for the past two months. Yet that Thompson's performance on "Meet" — much like his debate debut last month — was one in which merely getting through without making any major errors is seen as tantamount to success says much about the diminished expectations for the candidate once seen as the cure to GOP...

    The much ballyhooed debate on "Meet the Press" between former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. and Markos Moulitsas, publisher of the liberal Daily Kos website, was instructive for what it revealed about both the divisions in the Democratic Party and the underlying disingenuousness of both factions. Ford was defending the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), an organization that holds itself out as centrist, urges the Democratic Party to move in that direction, and proudly claims former President Bill Clinton as its most honored member. Moulitsas was there to represent the more leftist wing of the party, which has used his website to...

    The western world has had to deal with violent jihad by Muslims for more than a thousand years. After the defeats of Muslim armies in Spain centuries earlier, and of the Ottoman Empire during World War I, the west largely relaxed regarding that particular threat. The combination of billions of petrodollars with the acquisition and near acquisition of weapons of mass destruction (including nuclear weapons) together with the atrocity of September 11 completely changed the equation and the rules. It is a fact of life that grownups have to deal with the potential of these threats – and also deal...

One thing really stuck out to me while I was watching him (kind of) answer Tim Russert's questions: this guy is wrong a lot. He says now that he was wrong to vote for the war in the first place. He says now that he was wrong to say in his 2004 book that a precipitous withdrawal of troops based on a set timetable would be a catastrophic mistake. He even says now that he was wrong to call for an additional...

    Democratic strategists who had feared Sen. John McCain as the potentially unbeatable Republican candidate for president in 2008 were surprised and delighted by his dour appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" last Sunday. One Democratic leader referred to McCain's performance, in suggesting President Bush's additional 21,000 troops may be inadequate, as "comatose." A Republican adviser to McCain said it was one of the worst performances ever on "Meet the Press."

    The California governor likens Inhofe's stance to 'Stone Age thinking'; Inhofe is careful in his reply. WASHINGTON -- California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's comparison of U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe's stance on global warming to Stone Age thinking drew a mild response Monday from the Oklahoma Republican. "I admire him immensely. He is going to be one of our top leaders in the Republican Party," Inhofe said of Schwarzenegger. While careful not to criticize Schwarzenegger directly, the senator said the governor was embracing the stance that is popular in California. "In California, it is very much influenced by the Hollywood mentality," he...

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Schwarzenegger again ruled out the possibility of raising taxes to pay for health care expansion and said the cost of services must be brought down. The governor's comments represent a significant advance in expectations for his health care initiative that began in earnest only a few months ago and so far remains largely a work in progress.

    Preview and analysis for Weekend Talk Shows, 10-1-06 and 10-8-06 It's week five of the drive by media campaign to win back power in Washington for those who truly deserve it (in their minds), the Dhimmicrats.  This week the attention shifts away from President Bush, because their lame but continuous attacks were beginning to work for him.  Instead they are starting to point out to the ignorant boobs out there that the Republicans are really the party of homo values, kiddie porn, dirty talk and probably worse things, like drugs or even (horrors) rock and roll!  They fully expect all...

    Preview and analysis for Weekend Talk Shows, 9-30 and 10-1-06 It's week four (or 297, depending on how you figure it) of the WOB (war on Bush) and all things "Republi-fascist," as the drive by media might style what they're doing.  We've had a week of spin like we haven't seen since... well, since Clinton was in office.  All the old hateful and hate filled faces were back on the screaming head shows pulling their electrically powered rapid fire mouths back out of storage and plugging them in for one more go around of lies, screaming lies and videotape.  And...

    Preview and Analysis of the Weekend Talk Shows for 9/23 & 9/24/06The campaign to trash President Bush and beatify President Clinton gets into high gear this week.  Perhaps now we know why the Clintonistas were so frantic to kill or discredit The Path To 9/11, because it had the possibility of preempting their re-re-re-re-launch of the "Clinton Legacy" (Take 843).  This is a contest between the Bush and Clinton world views.  Bush views the world in terms of western civilization representing humanity's progress up from barbarism.  Clinton views the world in terms of America's sins and how we must be...
