Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on March 3, 2013 by Allahpundit

Faced with a choice of rehashing the stale Bob Woodward drama and the very, very, very stale sequester doomsaying, the Sunday shows decide to kill two birds with one stone: Gene Sperling will appear on NBC and CNN to bash the GOP on sequestration and then field questions about what he meant by “regret” in his e-mail to Woodward. Meanwhile, Woodward himself will be on CBS to try to explain why Obama and his team hate the media that adores them.

Or better yet, skip all that and watch Chris Wallace’s interview with Mitt and Ann Romney. Believe it or not, there is potentially news to be made here. The line-up via National Journal:

Speaker John Boehner will give the House GOP’s perspective on Meet the Press, while Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling will represent the White House and answer questions about his now-public spat with the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward. Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, will join the show’s panel.

Sperling also will appear on State of the Union, joined by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Woodward will give his side of his conflict with Sperling on Face the Nation. The show will also feature discussion of the budget battles with Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., John McCain, R-Ariz., and Dick Durbin, D-Ill. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of New York, will preview the upcoming papal elections.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., Sperling, and Mia Love, the Republican mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, will appear on This Week.

On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace will sit down with Mitt and Ann Romney for their first post-election interview.

In short, he know’s they’re whores but he fears that he’s impotent!

Actually, he’s the whore- they’re paying him, not the other way around.

And he’s wondering what he’ll do when the looks go.

Not to mention the voice. I can’t stand to listen to any Simon & Garfunkel live performance recorded much after 1978. They just didn’t have the right voices after that point. (Especially not for “The Boxer”.)

Obama is in the same situation. He thinks he is a god. He requires, in fact demands, worship.

But in the back of his mind there’s that still, small voice, like the slave in the Roman conqueror’s chariot in the triumph.

Whispering that “all glory is fleeting”.

Further to the comments by some on this thread of Obama’s capacity for violence. I agree – and point out that his personal selection of ‘Who Shall My Drones Kill Today’ is one such example.

I consider that such an action, of a president personally selecting, as if it were a video game, the killing of someone else by a drone, is sick, is pathological. That should be the task of and only of, the military. But Obama does this, not because he’s fighting Islamic fascism – he isn’t, he doesn’t even consider it exists – but because it’s a personal ‘high’ for him to select Who To Kill Today.

Obama is, in my view, someone who takes dissent, disagreement, any rejection of His Will, as an offense. His reaction is malicious, vindictive and destructive. He gets others to do the actual dirty work – but – you simply aren’t allowed to be around Obama if you have the capacity for free thought.

I agree with others on this thread also about the media adulation of Obama. But this is a description of WHAT the media is; how about WHY is it this way? I claim that the media has long been swallowed within identity politics and has no capacity for rational and critical analysis.

Romney owned up. He said that he and his team lost the election, not Christie, not Sandy, not the people bluegill blames.

Obama is the result of sex among Lenin and Mussolini.

Watching the Romneys this morning confirmed my feeling that Mitt would be a MUCH better President…

And his wife would have been a GREAT FLOTUS…

Best wishes in civilian life… you’ve both EARNED it…

Cute new grandkids, too (twins!)… Winston and Eleanor…

Do you think their son thought about jokingly naming them Barack and Michelle, just to get a rise out of Mitt???????

Romney wanted to stop birth control for women!

Pass it on to a gullible idiot!

And it worked.

Slime is an effective tool in politics.

You fail to counter it aggressively, you lose.

And America gets Obama, and we all lose.

Fox News Sunday panel consisting of four liberals. (Yeah, Kristol too.) Who’s stinking idea was that?

scgas on March 3, 2013 at 3:48 PM

Must be seen

It is good that Romney has popped back onto the scene in time to point out that Obama was lying in the debates, and that Obama has NO CLUE about economics and doesn’t care about the financial health of the country. It would seem Obama has been running full speed away from anything Centrist he had to say to get votes. The sequester isn’t happening; Benghazi was all out front, Romney jumped the gun, nothing was happening there except for a teeny bit of terrorism.
