george w bush on meet the press, this sunday, with timmy "the man" russert!

Recommended Posts

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3032608/

 

check your local listing.

 

 

im not sure who here is a regular of this show, but im reaaaaally looking forward to this. i like tim alot and i can only hope that he will be as fair and honest as he is with any of his other guests.(especially clark and dean) if he throws softballs im gonna be disappointed.

 

from a PR standpoint, i guess it needs to be done, but i dont know if its the best way to go about it. this could really backfire given bushs inability at speaking eloquently and to think on his feet.

 

should be cool.

what i'm curious about is how middle america and the general armed forces feels about bush right now. basically for four years i've heard people around me mumble and grumble about how come 2004 we've got to get him out of there...

 

but remember beards posting those letters from people to the man? they were talking about how he was the best president in history. and military men saying they believe in him and his cause.

 

curious indeed

I don't know, Bush didn't seem to look as unbelievably stupid during his presidential debates as he has ever since. Will he ever come out of the current overwhelming dumbosity illness, and back to just-above-average dumbosity with one-on-one talks?

 

Will people conclude he looked stupid because his views and his face are considered stupid, or because he said objectively stupid things, like inventificating new words?

 

STAY TUNED.

Forgive my not knowing names and specifics and this and that, but a friend of mine told me last night that Carl Rove's (is that the guy I'm thinking of?) grandfather was a Nazi who helped set up concentration camps and what not.

 

Can anyone confirm this, or maybe give me the right name. I don't think this is some made up shit.

anything that gives us a chance to see how mcuh more of an idiot Bush is than we already thought is definitely positive. I swear if he takes it in 2004, the US will be worse off than Iraq was with Sadaam....

i used to think bush was an idiot.

 

now i have come to the conclusion that he is a egotistical dry drunk that does not articulate well at all, has business associates of extremely poor moral standing that do not conduct ethical business(enron) and was in flagrant violation of constitutional and international law by invading two countries during his term after the country suffered the most horrendous terrorist attacks, which we have yet to see justice done to the people behind it.

 

holy run on sentences batman.

 

so you cant really clown as an idiot cause this president who was not elected by the popular vote is getting away with some serious shit.

 

flat out.....he shoulda been impeached in 02 and should definitley be facing impeachment now.

 

the idiots are the people that actually belive hes going to do somthing good for this country.

roe? You like Russert? The man's a Republican shill, forcing RNC-drafted questions down the throat of any Dem guest. I wasn't too fond of him to begin with, but after Dean's first appearance on MTP a grew to strongly dislike Russert.

 

But, like you said, I hope he asks substantive, penetrating questions to aWol. I'm not going to hold my breath, though.

And one more thing -

 

roe, you have to start [assuming you don't already] checking out Atrios - http://atrios.blogspot.com/ .

 

He is by far one of the best left bloggers out there, with a penchant for media criticism. I don't post on there, but it's my first stop whenever I open up Internet Explorer.

i really really like russert bobbo...its how i spend my sunday mornings...and i dont think he is republican...

 

he was fucking hard on dean, but ive seen him be hard to other dems running also(clark and gephardt). and ive seen him be tough with colin and condie also...

 

so hopefully he will be upfront and not brash, but not taking bullshit either...

 

 

and if it seemed like he was asking RNC questions, thats because he does a good job of playing devils advocate, and dean was gonna have to face those eventually, better that he air it out on tv and get the chance to answer em...but that was one ugly interview, though he did go back on recently...and i thought tim was a bit lighter then the interview 7 months ago...

 

here hoping for wisconsin....deans last stand.

yeah man, as far as main mass media goes, i think timmy is the man...doesnt mean im not going to pull a card when he blows interviews or lobs softballs, but all in all i think he wants the truth as much as i do.

 

but he doesnt play the hardball like mathews, because well, mathews doesnt get the colins and condies...

 

so its a tuff game of give and take...

the sunday paper last sunday which usually has a pretty conservitive editorial section pretty much blasted bush all the way around.

 

im confused why everybody else's face in his admin. was on the cover of newsweek except his.

 

wasnt history made in 97 or 98 when Clinton got impeached, like he was the first sitting president since some other old white guy in previous century. you see what im saying? talk about a double standard, im sure if his connections to enron were investigated as much as whitewater they could find somthing to impeach him on. and then theres 911 and all the shit he said in the State of the Union during his term.

 

im amazed at the amount of shady shit this administration has gotten away with. our national debt is like a trillion or someshit we took over two countries and states are going broke while the richest got large tax cuts. congress hasnt done shit except peel away our civil rights and violate the constitution by giving the president the power over the armed forces.

 

so technically if we followed all the rules, and following rules isnt that bad, we should have a new congress and president and.........

 

um....i hadda lotta coffee and i have add.......and im bitter.

Bush on Pumpkinhead Sunday

 

Full hour. I guarantee this will go down in history as the worst moment in American journalism. Russert got his gig after delivering a fluffer to Bush I.

 

-Atrios 6:50 PM

 

 

hahahaha....i hope he's wrong...ive seen tim buckle before, not often but ive had some yelling matches at my tv...my girl thinks im nuts...

 

but bobbo that is one hell of site! i suggest other people do themselves the favor and head on over.

I'm glad you like it. It's run anonymously by some dude in Philly, and he's the top baller in terms of the leftist blogging world. Others to check out if you're interested:

  • www.dailykos.com - great Democratic blog with multiple authors. It's especially good with primary discussion and candidate discussion. A great feature is the ability to sign up for an account and post a blog as a "diary" available for other users to read and comment.
     
  • www.talkingpointsmemo.com - by Josh Marshall, a writer for Washington Monthly and The Hill. He has a great deal of contact with insiders in DC (usually Dems, although not limited to 'em), thus giving some good information not obtainable otherwise. He too tends to go in depth into issues. Along with Atrios, my favorite.
     
  • www.thismodernworld.com - the artist for This Modern World, the greatest comic strip currently running.

i dunno, as far as mass media goes i like timmy russert...yeah i know he can lob softballs sometimes, but then again, ive seen tim go hard and be relentless sometimes.

 

he does get some of the biggest names, and there is a reason for that. you can just have these people on and crucify em, it doesnt work that way.

 

hopefully he wont balk at this. hopefully he will see his journalistic integrity is on the line.

 

ill be watching.
