Skip to comments.NBC's Lauer to Gates: 'Dangerous or Dishonorable' to Criticize Obama?

For five full years, we watched Democrats and the mighty force of the mainstream media do everything in their power to "call into question" President George W. Bush's leadership as commander-in-chief while tens, and even hundreds of thousands of troops were "in harm's way." Back then, it was a vicious media blood sport and unrelenting. Today, however, if just one person, like former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, dares to do the same to President Obama, suddenly NBC's Matt Lauer is wondering if such a thing is "dangerous or dishonorable":

Lauer then follows up by expressing concern that Gates' book might "undermine" Obama's "credibility with the troops."

Remember the days yada yada yada is the highest form of patriotism? I haven't watched the peacock for ages (except the Sunday Night Football), didn't realize they've sunk this low.
I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.
What a clown. These people are cartoon characters.
Obama undermined his credibility with EVERYONE years ago!
The is a trail of dead bodies in Chicago of those who might have attested to Obama's downlow past. And the IRS responds in hours to insults from ordinary citizens of Gay Leader.
Dissent is patriotic, son
But with Bush it was okay up to even making a movie assassinating him.
The title of the book at the end was "Matt Lauer Can Suck It". A Will Farrell successful failure, so to speak.
Dissent Is Patriotic Hillary (During Bush Admin)
Dissent Is Terrorism Hillary (During Obama Admin)
And I am sick and tired of people like Gates who allow themselves to be bullied by the leftists in the media. Don’t take it anymore! Give it right back to them!
Sad. This idiot in chief has given AFGE civil servants powers never authorized to GS types. The little girl whose father owned the communist newspapers in Chicago runs the White House. Valerie is the real Pres. She made a mockery of the White House by allowing Iranian foreign agents in the place.
Because, Matt, you never critized a president during time of war.
Funny story but executives at NBC knew that Lauer was not very bright but women loved him in focus groups so he was hired.
I watched the interview. Lauer basically acted like Obama was his boyfriend and he was going to protect him - I love watching this media contort to protect obama.
Gates seems perturbed because Obama followed the voters to get out of wars instead of Generals who wanted still more surges and mission creep. The loss of our blood and treasure is important Mr. Gates.
No way, it can't be. Nanny Pelosi taught me it was the height of patriotism to criticize POTUS. Nanny wouldn't tell a lie, would she?
