Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on August 31, 2014 by Allahpundit

Putin and ISIS and war, oh my: It’s a natsec extravaganza on the Sunday shows this morning featuring all of your old favorites. Watch Dianne Feinstein warn of a dire threat to the homeland on “Meet the Press”! Thrill to Mike Rogers calling for new sanctions on Russia on “Fox News Sunday”! Gasp as John McCain demands U.S. arms for the opposition in Syria and Ukraine on “Face the Nation”! With special guests Peter King (also “Face the Nation”), Bob Menendez (“State of the Union”), and Adam Kinzinger (ditto), all offering similarly hawkish takes!

If you’re not in the mood for foreign policy, Tom Delay will also be on “State of the Union” to discuss the ridiculous indictment against Rick Perry. The full line-up is at The Hill.

Gasp as John McCain demands U.S. arms for the opposition in Syria and Ukraine on “Face the Nation”!

You mean for the opposition in Syria and the government in Ukraine.
McCain probably isn’t going to demand that we arm the pro-Russian separatists.

Watch Obama fiddle while home burns!

bay girl menendez in kiev?

hide your daughters.

I wouldn’t p!ss on Peter King if he was on fire…

Hahahaha…totally agree. He’s a major jackass.

Jaibones on August 31, 2014 at 8:42 AM

Go away, McLame, Go away, go away, go away…

OmahaConservative on August 31, 2014 at 8:46 AM

Bet most of them were at the same cocktail party last night.

MT on August 31, 2014 at 8:49 AM

X in the square, Jaibones for the WIN!

SMACKRUNNER on August 31, 2014 at 8:49 AM

Go away, McLame, Go away, go away, go away…

OmahaConservative on August 31, 2014 at 8:46 AM

McLame thinks that he is the shadow president– all of the bluster and none of the responsibility. In that role, he is much like Obysmal.

BTW COL posted this morning at the end of the QOTD thread. We welcome her back.

Shortened version of the DNC Media Propaganda Hour, kids.

Let’s have a gander:

NBC’s “Meet the Press”:
• Dianne Feinstein

CBS’s “Face the Nation”:
• John McCain
• Adam Smith
• Peter King

CNN’s “State of the Union”:
• Robert Menendez
• Dutch Ruppersberger
• Adam Kinzinger
• Tom Delay

“Fox News Sunday”:
• Mike Rogers

ABC’s “This Week”:
• Tom Cole
• Bill Richardson

This is pathetic.
I have nothing to add.

Jaibones on August 31, 2014 at 8:57 AM

Who the hell watches these shows anymore?

Gasp as John McCain demands U.S. arms for the opposition in Syria and Ukraine on “Face the Nation”!

Now I’m too frightened to even turn on the TV. Thanks a lot, AP.

Toocon on August 31, 2014 at 9:13 AM

Even if I had broadcast TV, which I don’t, I wouldn’t waste my time. Besides, I’m working on a 1/35 scale M1A2HC, which with my just purchased Adam-12 Year One DVD is bound to be more interesting as a way to spend a lazy Sunday morning.

cheers

crrr6 on August 31, 2014 at 9:06 AM

Millions of people stare and watch as if they were being enlightened. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

MT on August 31, 2014 at 9:19 AM

Hmmm. Why does THIS verse come to mind:

“Moreover choose able men from all the people, such as fear God, men who are trustworthy and who hate a bribe; and place such men over the people as rulers of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens.” Exodus 18:21

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 9:31 AM

AllahPundit is apparently feeling especially snarky this morning.

Who the hell watches these shows anymore?

crrr6 on August 31, 2014 at 9:06 AM

Not to defend the duplicitous media, but they do interview politicians, and politicians do have real power. Even though you know they’re lying when their lips move, it’s still worthwhile to hear what they decide to lie about.

Fenris on August 31, 2014 at 9:38 AM

Worthwhile? Not sure I can be that generous.

Sometimes they slip and accidentally tell the truth.

crankyoldlady on August 31, 2014 at 10:00 AM

McCain et.al working for the dems by giving them renewed ammo to paint repubs as neo-con warmongers. It may fire up their base to nostalgic street theater like the bullshit antics in Ferguson. Viet Nam-ish anti war rhetoric Act Two..Scene 1: Enter stage left.

Fenris on August 31, 2014 at 9:38 AM

Sorry but I just can’t. My quotient for hope for my country is just about used up and I’m saving what’s left for the little people who are still trying to be honest human beings.

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 10:05 AM

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 10:05 AM

I can’t disagree, but I can be true to myself.

Fenris on August 31, 2014 at 10:10 AM

Fenris on August 31, 2014 at 10:10 AM

I don’t mean to start anything nor to hijack the thread but I have an entirely different take on the matter.

Mine’s a little more hopeful.

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 10:18 AM

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 10:18 AM

Find hope where you can.

Fenris on August 31, 2014 at 10:23 AM

I wouldn’t p!ss on Peter King if he was on fire…

JohnGalt23 on August 31, 2014 at 8:30 AM

But after he burned out, absolutely. Along with the rest of them, Barry, Eric, Jeh, Mel, Valerie, Joe, Harry, Diane, etc, etc.

azpatriotsdotcom on August 31, 2014 at 10:24 AM

As for McShame, airdrop the geriatric jack@ass into Syria with a rifle and let him walk his talk.

azpatriotsdotcom on August 31, 2014 at 10:27 AM

Fenris on August 31, 2014 at 10:23 AM

Indeed.

azpatriotsdotcom on August 31, 2014 at 10:27 AM

We can’t. McPain is a war hero blah blah blah. We have to worship him forever no matter what he says or does. It’s the law.

wsucoug on August 31, 2014 at 10:49 AM

Has McCain posed for a picture with any new ISIS terrorist this week?

Conservative4Ever on August 31, 2014 at 10:56 AM

I’ll cop to being stupid, what is a “1/35 scale M1A2HC”?

I weep for our country.

The damage that Obama and his merry band of idiots has done in less than a year. The momentum of their disastrous policies and inept execution of autopilot programs is accelerating. That the opposition party is allowing it is almost as bad. I seriously believe that Obama wants an attack on our soil and it would not surprise me if he instigates a false flag attack for political gains. The man is sociopath with severe NPD. Nothing is beyond him and his advisers.

jukin3 on August 31, 2014 at 11:56 AM

what is the HC version of the M1A2?
every search just gives game type info.

jukin3 on August 31, 2014 at 11:56 AM

You have to look at this from an even broader, and more depressing, I’m afraid, perspective.

Yeah, they’ve done this in less than a year, but you have to remember that the Left (Communists) have been at work on this for about a century. The Obama administration is their crowning achievement. They have now successfully instigated themselves into every significant aspect of the cultural, political, artistic, and economic infrastructure. They’ve even infected the churches.

But since the late 60′s they’ve achieved most of their objectives in the West. In less than half a century they have managed to undermine what had taken centuries to achieve.

You have to see Obama in this context. He’s not an outlier or an anomaly.

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Conservatives are not watching these shows and will not be voting for any RINO Amnesty Shills for Illegal Aliens……

Realdemocrat1 on August 31, 2014 at 12:41 PM

Somehow it seems fitting that the picture of this idiot appears right above a picture of another total idiot.

Was this planned?

Diluculo on August 31, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Cleombrotus on August 31, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Yet obama and his communists are still a complete fail. All they have done is disassemble things, they have built nothing. It’s what communist progressive liberals do, it’s their default.

In looking to the future of what they can or would do, it’s just more of the same along the road to total failure before it all cycles again.

These toads are worthless, every one of them should be exterminated.

Diluculo on August 31, 2014 at 1:03 PM

Jon0815 on August 31, 2014 at 8:15 AM

We can’t tell what McCain means, as usual.

A passing irony is that the American ISIS rebel recently killed in Syria was also called “McCain

Not that this means anything, but neither do the Senator’s opinions.

virgo on August 31, 2014 at 1:14 PM

jukin3 on August 31, 2014 at 11:56 AM
I read your post and the sickening thought that just came was Obama is as crazy and evil as Charles Manson and those that work for and follow Obama are no different than the brain dead followers of Manson. How else can these people keep silent on his goals and methods of destroying this country?

Bakokitty on August 31, 2014 at 2:19 PM

Bakokitty on August 31, 2014 at 2:19 PM
To expand that thought Obama’s followers and cohorts are for the most part under forty, communist indoctrinated cultists, who are doing their part in the destruction murder of America.

Bakokitty on August 31, 2014 at 2:29 PM

I wouldn’t p!ss on Peter King if he was on fire…

JohnGalt23 on August 31, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Hahahaha…totally agree. He’s a major jackass.

Jaibones on August 31, 2014 at 8:42 AM

King was my Congresscritter for several years. He was better than the neighboring districts, I guess. Fortunately, I have relocated to a more reasonable part of the country and now, yes, he appears quite the ass.

Tex-YES!

Who is John Galt on August 31, 2014 at 3:54 PM

I have nothing to add.

Jaibones on August 31, 2014 at 8:57 AM

I can’t blame you for that. Piss poor tv. No matter I was on boat all weekend. As always, thank you! ; )
