President Obama turned up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: a bitter, intransigent partisan claiming to be the only non-partisan, non-ideological participant in the “fiscal cliff” drama. “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda – I’m a pretty practical guy,” he explicitly stated, offering his

past four years in office as evidence.

It’s too bad “Meet the Press” doesn’t have a laugh track. Obama’s interviewer, David Gregory, was willing to flagrantly violate D.C. gun laws to beat up on NRA executive Wayne LaPierre, but when President Obama takes the stage to drop insane howlers like that, America’s top outlaw journalist just sits quietly and nods.

In truth, nothing about Obama’s record in office, re-election campaign, or fiscal cliff policy has been even slightly non-partisan or non-ideological. This kind of posturing gives partisanship and ideology a bad name – voters do band together into parties and vote for candidates based upon their campaign promises, after all. Whether or not either position is correct, a Republican’s ideological commitment to low taxes is no more illegitimate than Barack Obama’s stern ideological commitment to raising them.

Of all the gushing, fawning, sycophantic things uttered by Obama-loving media members in 2012,

David Gregory’s fiscal cliff question posed to the President on Sunday’s Meet the Press has to be on the list of the year’s top ten.

“Is this your Lincoln moment?” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

School Obama’s Daughters Attend Has 11 Armed Guards [school employees - not secret service]

December 26, 2012 2 comments

Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact.

 

The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak.

If you dismiss this by saying, “Of course they have armed guards — they get Secret Service protection,” then you’ve missed the larger point.

 

The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC’s David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren’t used (and weren’t even allowed).

 

 

 

Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed.

Perry Asks And Answers The 3 Big Questions

January 8, 2012 Leave a comment

In this morning’s GOP presidential debate, NBC moderator David Gregory asked Texas Governor Rick Perry a question about electability.

Governor Perry took it a step further and laid out the three big questions primary voters should be asking themselves: “Who is it that can beat Obama? Who is it that can invigorate the tea party? Who is it that can take the message of smaller outsider government that’s truly going to change that place?”

While the mainstream media and party establishment have been obsessed with that first question for months, the other two have been virtually ignored in their zeal to push Republicans to settle once again for a non-conservative nominee. With the actual voting underway, it’s more than time to ask (and answer) those other two questions.

When it comes to invigorating the grassroots activists who were instrumental in the shellacking President Obama and his Congressional cronies took in the 2010 midterm elections, Governor Perry demonstrated once again that he is the candidate that can inspire the tea party.

The former captain of the boat from which actress Natalie Wood drowned in 1981 alleged on TODAY Friday that her husband, actor Robert Wagner, was responsible for her death.

Dennis Davern said he is now urging homicide investigators to look into Wood’s death. She had been boating with Wagner and his “Brainstorm” co-star Christopher Walken near Santa Catalina Island off the coast of California when she drowned.

“I made some terrible decisions and mistakes,” Davern told NBC NewsDavid Gregory. “I did lie on a report several years ago.”

He added, “I made mistakes by not telling the honest truth in a police report.”

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: And greetings to you, music lovers, thrill-seekers, conversationalists all across the fruited plain. I of course am El Rushbo, the Grand Wizard of broadcasting with some props there to David Gregory of NBC News and Meet the Press. That’s right, my friends, the Grand Wizard. Well, Gregory said that there’s no Grand Wizard in the Republican Party to tell Herman Cain to shut up or go away. And he didn’t realize, he claims, you know, Herman Cain being an African-American, you want to talk about Grand Wizards and people like Sheets Byrd, late Sheets Byrd in the Senate, it might be a little offensive, so Gregory went out there and apologized. (interruption) No, he was a Kleagle, Sheets Byrd was a Grand Kleagle. I am the Grand Wizard of broadcasting.

Folks, I normally wouldn’t do this. I have to tell you, I don’t know how this show is gonna go today because everything, I mean everything associated with putting this program together today has failed, has been a total 150% disaster. I’m in the mood to whine, since this is a nation of whiners. I’m in the mood to whine and complain. Of course I don’t do that.
