The economy is at the topic du jour once again. Take a look… I wrote yesterday about Republicans needing ideas other than tax cuts, and that was based on what John Boehner said during the broadcast. And, as reported elsewhere, they can’t continue to expect Americans to support tax cuts for the wealthy. It simply […]

Harry Reid talks about Blago and Burris and the roundtable discusses Gaza and what Obama should do about it. So, if Israel is still occupying Gaza by the time Obama is sworn in, what do you think the new administration’s response will be? Furthermore, do you think Israel’s move was timed to force Obama to […]

David Alexrod talks about Obama’s economic agenda and Israel’s Tzipi Livini talks about her country’s recent operation in Gaza. By the way, I think Israel’s move was foolish and will only divide the country further.

This time, Condoleezza Rice talks about her time as Secretary of State and Hillary’s future in that position. Now, let me just say this…if Rice thinks that US is “respected” and “popular” around the world, then she’s just as delusional as Bush and I’m glad to see her go. And comparing us to China and […]

This will be the last time I say that I think Chuck Todd would have been a better pick, but today’s MTP was pretty decent. Congrats again to Gregory for landing the gig. By the way, just a note to Chris Matthews and Fox News Sunday and ABC and CBS…why do you not have your […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Bad Decisions, Media, Meet The Press

I wrote about this yesterday hoping it wasn’t true, and today we have confirmation. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I know, I know…I sound like a big, whiny political baby, but Gregory just doesn’t have the gravitas nor the depth that Russert had.
