Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on May 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

I thought for sure that the Memorial Day weekend Sunday shows would be devoted to a hard look at the war in Afghanistan, especially in light of the coalition death toll having just reached 3,000. Nope. Panetta will appear briefly on ABC and there are a few military guests slated for CNN, but otherwise it’s the usual campaign dreck across the board. Proof positive, I guess, of how little interest the public still has in the war. Or rather, how little interest the network news departments think they have.

The big campaign “get” this week is Newt, who’ll be on NBC to answer the thousandth iteration of questions about whether he thinks the Bain attacks will work for Obama even though they didn’t work for him. Spoiler alert: No. The line-up via WaPo:

NBC’s Meet the Press: Newt Gingrich; Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD); Maria Shriver; Michael Lewis; Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa; Carly Fiorina, former head of Hewlett-Packard; E.J. Dionne, Washington Post and Brookings Institution; David Brooks, New York Times

CBS’ Face the Nation: Robert Gibbs, senior adviser to the Obama campaign; Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to the Romney campaign; Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN)

ABC’s This Week: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta; Jennifer Granholm, Current TV; Liz Claman, Fox Business Network; Nia-Malika Henderson, Washington Post; Ron Brownstein, National Journal

Fox News Sunday: Sen. John McCain (R-AZ); Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington; Jeff Zeleny, New York Times; Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal; Kirsten Powers, The Daily Beast and Fox News

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani; Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL); Gen. Peter Chiarelli (ret.); Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA); Tim Tetz, American Legion; Paul Rieckhoff, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America

Back in the Old Media these shows really mattered……now?….not so much.

Predictions:

George Will will wear a bow tie.

David Gregory will fake outrage about something and nearly have a spasm on air.

Stephangoogleus on ABC will act disappointed with the Administration but will praise Clinton somehow/someway.

John McCain will whine, like the tiny politician he is.

Newt will tell us how great he was “in my time as Speaker…”

And America won’t even notice the “talking heads” as they puff for the cameras.

My outrage this week is the fifteen year old high school boy that found the over ninety percent positive proof, non invasive test for pancreatic cancer. It’s this boy that should be put in charge of the research considering the hundreds of millions and yes billions of dollars that has been spent at the troughs in the name of cancer. It took a high school kid from the State of Maryland to show the research teams from universities and medical institutes the way to a truth. Makes me wonder where all the money went and if there’s other bogus research being along the same lines.

Hopefully Obama can avoid use of the word “corpsemen” tomorrow and can at least project a composite that gives a s@#t about our fallen heroes. Sorry, I still haven’t forgiven his party for the blatant political posturing they engaged in after their votes to go to war in Iraq were already cast. How many American lives were lost due to the morale boost Harry Reid gave the enemy when he proclaimed it a lost war? How many lives could have been saved had Democrats come to grips with the fact that WE WERE ALREADY THERE and proceeded accordingly? The time for debate was over, they cast their votes, and then proceeded to continue the debate for political purposes without regard for the troops they just inserted into harm’s way. Truly a party that has lost its way, and I say that as someone who is not exactly enamored by the other party.

Whew – ventilation is good; now for coffee. Hope everyone has a good holiday. My deepest gratitude to all you military folks out there. Thanks for always being there for us even when we spit on you, look down on you, forget to count your votes, defund you while you’re at war, and use you as political pawns. We are truly not worthy.

Obama also said the US should “serve them and their families as well as they have served us: by making sure that they get the health care and benefits they need; by caring for our wounded warriors and supporting our military families; and by giving veterans the chance to go to college, find a good job and enjoy the freedom that they risked everything to protect.”

——————————————————

Romney, Obama compete for veteran vote with Florida emerging as battleground

May 26, 2012 3:39 PM EDT
Updated: May 26, 2012 3:39 PM EDT
**********************************

WASHINGTON — The campaign for military votes is taking the spotlight Memorial Day weekend, with President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney each trying to make the case that he has a better plan to help veterans and service members.

A recent Wall Street Journal-NBC poll shows Romney leads Obama by eight percentage points among military voters. But a Reuters-Ipsos poll shows Obama winning the veterans’ vote over Romney by as much as seven percentage points.

Large pockets of veterans live in key states such as Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. But whether they can assemble a large enough voting bloc to help either candidate win or lose a state remains unclear.

The state where veterans may have the most influence is Florida, with 1.6 million veterans, said Martin Lee, a spokesman for Vets for Romney.

“If we can motivate veterans to go to the polls, with elections so close now, the difference of 100,000 votes could change the election,” Lee, a US Navy veteran, said.

To the 58,000 + on the Wall that perished in Viet Nam, a grateful nation salutes you, and the families of the fallen—we will never forget or forsake those who committed this ultimate sacrifice.

To the thousands of heroes that have perished after 9/11, (that joined in the fight against the radical Islamic Jihadist)—we will never forget or forsake those who committed this ultimate sacrifice.

To the hundreds of thousand that perished in our two World Wars and the Korean conflict, (that put a stop to the tyrannical dictators and the facilitators of fascism)—we will never forget or forsake those who committed this ultimate sacrifice.

From still a grateful nation, every one of you are in our hearts, our minds, and our prayers on this day. For it is the fallen that remind us that the price of freedom had been paid dearly in the flesh and blood of our greatest defenders—OUR MILITARY HEROES. GOD BLESS THEM ONE AND ALL.

Slightly O/T:

I find it fairly astounding that otherwise rational people can support and care about fallen troops and the rest who served yet who post/comment on articles about plans to round up Americans for FEMA camps or similar nonsense.

I cannot see how some conservatives who harbor love and compassion for our military members can believe that those same warriors would turn on their own.

I, for one, have absolutely no fear that the military would ever deliberately harm me in any way on American soil.

I just needed to get that off my mind on this Memorial Day weekend.

platypus on May 27, 2012 at 10:42 AM

Today we remember those who sacrificed themselves to protect us against our enemies.

This day should serve also to put our lives in proper perspective. As important as our politics are, we have men and women in our armed forces fighting to protect us and putting their lives on the line every single day. They deserve our full support. without their sacrifices, we would not be here, and we would have no politics to concern us.

WOW

David Brooks was on Meet the Press positively depressed stating that Walker will win Wisconsin and (sigh) so will Romney.

Poor guy. I thought he was going to choke up.

Caught the bit with Lugar and he still doesn’t seem to comprehend why he lost. Although, he did admit that it was understandable as to why voters in Indiana thought he was out of touch with his constituents. True, he did it in a condescending way by stating that voters were mad because he was on important trips around the world instead of attending pancake breakfasts. Not much mention of the fact that he hasn’t really lived in Indiana since the 70′s. I think that little fact had a lot to do with why he lost. That and the fact that voters thought 30 plus years was long enough.

Thanks for the update.

Lugar was in trouble here for repeatedly voting against the wishes of his constituents, crossing the aisle and enabling some of the worst Democrat policies and confirming some of the most incompetent and corrupt nominations. The fact that he hadn’t maintained a residence here for decades didn’t help, nor did his condescending attitude toward Hoosier voters who disagreed with him. But his real problem was that he is way to the Left of the average Hoosier voter, and he voted that way.

I cannot see how some conservatives who harbor love and compassion for our military members can believe that those same warriors would turn on their own.

I, for one, have absolutely no fear that the military would ever deliberately harm me in any way on American soil.

I just needed to get that off my mind on this Memorial Day weekend.

I cannot see how anyone could not have doubts. They are part of government. To trust implicitly the military is to ignore history. I don’t think all of our military are bad or would harm fellow Americans but many would, many from fear and to feed their families. Others because they agree with the power structure/ideology. Who crossed the Rubicon? Would they all revolt against working with DHS or the FBI? Waco? Thats a classic example of “we had to burn the village to save it sir”. Fast n’ Furious? Katrina gun control? Will all those in uniform truly be soldiers or mercs dressed to look the part, who’s loyalty is to the paymasters in DC?
