Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on July 29, 2012 by Allahpundit

Tough call this morning. Do we watch Dick Cheney on ABC talking about the election, national security, and just maybe the Chick-fil-A kerfuffle (he’s pro-SSM, remember) or Antonin Scalia on Fox talking about gun control jurisprudence and SCOTUS fallout from the ObamaCare decision?

If neither piques your interest, you’ve got Penn State-palooza on CBS. (“Meet the Press” is off because of the Olympics.) The line-up via WaPo:

CBS’ Face the Nation: Penn State President Rodney Erickson; former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor; DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL); Buzz Bissinger, author; Sara Ganim, Patriot-News; Bill Rhoden, New York Times; James Brown, CBS; Jim Rome, CBS; Jan Crawford, CBS

ABC’s This Week: Robert Gibbs, Obama campaign senior adviser; Kevin Madden, Romney campaign senior adviser; former Vice President Dick Cheney; George Will, ABC; Donna Brazile, Democratic strategist; David Chalian, Yahoo! News; Dana Loesch, Breitbart.com; Ruth Marcus, Washington Post

Fox News Sunday: Antonin Scalia, U.S. Supreme Court Justice; Chip Saltsman, former Mike Huckabee campaign manager; Liz Marlantes, Christian Science Monitor; Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal; Juan Williams, Fox News

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH); Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL); Ken Goldstein, Kantar Media/CMAG; Ron Brownstein, National Journal; Michael Scherer, Time

What does it take to get the old cronies to give up their grip on the ego trip? Just go away, Duck and take Carter, Billy Jeff and Rummy with you.

Here we go. I am in DC for the week…belly of the beast:

CBS: Awesome–eight libs and a Dem.

ABC: D, R, R, R, D, D, R, D

Fox: R, R, D, R, D

CNN: R, D, D, D and I do not know this Kantar fellow.

Not bad without NBC.

OmahaConservative on July 29, 2012 at 8:21 AM

I am too OC, but this battle is about so much more than Chickn’ Sandwiches, and it’s been a long time coming.

Flora Duh on July 29, 2012 at 8:34 AM

What Flora says. The fight has been a long time coming, and it isn’t going to end with ChickfilA. But I think we have seen the end of standing by silently while we are attacked for our values by the far Left and their scumbag fellow travelers, the newjackers and Journolisters posing as journalists.

They will do it again, but they will get smacked down for it every time going forward.

Para bellum.

Stuff like that makes me wonder how people can doubt God. And I think you were grammatically correct the first time. I was taught that if the word following a/an starts with a vowel, it is “an”.

Cheney will blast Chik-Fil-A, the only reason a network show would want him…….

Bash Conservative values, distort an issue, or remind Democrats/Teaters that Bush is responsible for all evil.

Cheney……..do us all a favor…….GO AWAY.

You and your boss gave us open borders, a war over WMDs that was clearly a lie, a WASTED 10 year war in Afghanistan WE NEVER INTENDED TO WIN……and you also set the stage for Obama to win (oh and you picked CJ John Roberts).

No more Bushes…….or their stand ins.

PappyD61 on July 29, 2012 at 8:24 AM

As I cannot see these interviews…I just want to correct something for the record.

Having spent SEVEN years in Iraq, I know whereof I speak. There were WMD’s in Iraq but the MSM never wanted to let you know because that would ruin the meme by the MSM. In 2008 over 500 TONS, yes, TONS of yellow cake uranium. Remember the whole Joe Wilson story and Cindy Plame saying that Saddam was NOT after yellow cake? Wellllllllll….I guess that was proven true, huh?

Also as I sit in AFG, Pappy you do not need to tell us what YOU think is going on over here. Spend some time in the mountains amongst the people and see what is really going on over here.

Thank you.

Wasserman-Schultz went down a list of gaffes Romney has made on his overseas tour, criticizing him for each and every one of them.

“Starting out in Great Britain, in England, where he insults, on the eve of a significant event for one of our strongest allies, makes a huge intelligence gaffe by revealing the existence and saying out loud the existence of their biggest intelligence agency, appearing not to know the name of the opposition leader…”

The “intelligence gaffe” comment was a reference to Romney publicly revealing he had a meeting with the head of MI6, the secret British intelligence agency. Of course, this comes on the heels of a prominent Democratic senator suggesting the White House may be responsible for intelligence leaks to the press, so perhaps this might not be the best time for the Democrats to call Romney out for a minor gaffe.

Still think this was the biggest gaff Romney made on this drip.

The leaks from the White House are a big thing. But Romney leaking about MI6 gives little assurance Romney would leak less.

Steveangell on July 29, 2012 at 1:18 PM

Afcrapistan and Iraq probably in hindsight were not the battles to fight. I think we should have immediately started bombing Pakistan after 9/11. Afgh was always their playground and we can never win so long as that is true.

Also, we will never win if we play be Marquess of Queensberry rules.

Why we should have never gone in.

Either go to war and actually wage war (primary target civilians as they will force leaders to surrender) or just target the leaders the best you can.

Sick of us going to war with rules that ensure our defeat before the first battle.

War is supposed to be horrible. There really is no such thing as a civilian in war. The entire country contributes to the war effort even if they are forced to. Thus take out the support (“civilians”) and you win the war. You then leave a Dictaor in place to keep peace the best possible and brutally suppress any uprising. This is the only thing that works in Islamic Countries that are incapable of any other kind of leadership. Let them vote they vote in a dictator that hates us and thus force us to war with them again. Stupid to play the game that way.

Are you guys serious, or maybe you saw too many James Bond movies or somethin’? :)…MI6 is not a ‘secret organization’, wtf, it’s not like we don’t refer to CIA publicly….This is ridiculous, Romney didn’t have a secet meeting with some undercover agent at MI6 :) , it was just a courtesy visit with some higer up in their hierarchy. so, get real….there was no ‘secret’ leaked from that meeting, just because the imbeciles in the liberal media tried so hard to make it look as it was a gaffe, what exactly it was the gaffe about? What do you think, their media wouldn’t have mentioned it anyways, that had a meeting with someone in the MI6, yeah right, they followed him everywhere, and then they would have portrayed Mitt as secretive, blah, blah for not mentioning it….so yeah, darned if he does, darned if he doesn’t…I think he was smart to mention it himself, or a new conspiracy theory would have been out there in no time: the neocon Mitt and MI6 are planning the next attack on Iran or god knows what..
