Via Newsbusters, this was a great exchange between the two. Great to see the former Speaker really lower the boom on Larry O’Donnell.
Thomas Friedman just doesn’t get it or he is a complete moron. Because he is a Liberal, I have decided he is the latter.
Mr. Friedman was on Meet The Press this weekend where he declared the Benghazi, Libya incident was not a ‘scandal’ but a ‘tragedy’. I guess having the Administration lie to the American people about what really happened couldn’t possibly be a ‘scandal’ now could it?
As William Shakespeare once said
“Honesty is the best policy. If I lose mine honor, I lose myself.”
Appearing on Sunday’s NBC Meet the Press, New York Times foreign affairs columnist Tom Friedman worked to downplay the terrorist attack in Libya: “There are diplomats that go to dangerous places, and sometimes…they get killed. It is a tragedy. To me, Libya is not a scandal, it’s a tragedy.”
While the murder of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was indeed a tragedy, Friedman has insisted on protecting the Obama administration from criticism over the attack.
Sorry, no Mr. Friedman. The real tragedy here is the Obama administration cannot be honest even with the families of the Benghazi 4. The four heroes who died and their families deserve better.
This was the most enjoyable part of the show. David Gregory and the Liberals later on David’s panel, kept asking about Mitt Romney’s plan. I would suggest Mr. Gregory get a little more preparatory like his predecessor Mr. Russert. Because, all you have to do is look on Mitt Romney’s website for the answers. It is really sad to see how far this show has fallen since the days of Tim Russert who I LOVED watching each Sunday morning.
Governor Christie is right, if the President isn’t going to be specific, why should Mr. Romney be MORE specific than he already has with his 5 point plan?
Via HotAirPundit, the former Governor of Utah Jon Huntsman is 150% correct in his assessment of Mitt Romney against Barack Obama in the general election. This is exactly why the media is playing up Governor Romney just like the way they did with Senator McCain in 2008.
Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman said Mitt Romney’s inconsistency on issues such as abortion, gun rights and healthcare would make him “unelectable” in a matchup with President Obama.“I think that what the American people want today, more than anything else, is a level of consistency,” Huntsman said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “They want trust. They want a level of trust in their elected officials.” “There is an issue on the flip-flops as it relates to trust. I don’t know that he can go on to beat President Obama given his record,” he added. “I mean, when there is a question about whether you’re running for the White House or running for the Waffle House, you’ve got a real problem with the American people.”
In a terrific interview broadcast yesterday on Meet The Press, the renowned race-baiter David Gregory could hardly believe it when Congresswoman Michele Bachmann said that one problem with Washington is that the politicians aren’t listening to the people and that the Representatives in Congress are supposed to represent those interests.
