Curious: MyKingdomForYourHorse: I didn't have to click the link to know that this was a giant David Gregory fail.

What a good way to fark up a show, put David Gregory on it.

i have no idea who thought giving him "meet the press" was a good idea but you'd think that by now the network would have realized what a mistake they made.


Well because he did such a bang up job during the elections....

...ok I couldn't even type that with a straight face

WaitWhatWhy: To be fair, we're fast approaching the point where CancerAids is more popular than the GOP.


To quote my father in law (registered lifetime Republican) on voting for Mitt this past election

DamnYankees: Elandriel: I just wish Obama would hold a prime time news conference and pre-empt programs and thoroughly abuse his bully pulpit to very clearly lay out exactly why and how this problem exists.  It needs to be said, it needs to be said when people are watching and it needs to be said directly, confrontationally and in a manner that can't be instantly spun.  He needs to respond to incredulous bullshiat like "Senate Democrats haven't acted" by saying all of their legislation was blocked by Senate Republicans.  But somehow this gets lost in the transfer and comes out as "We're totes trying you guys".

No wonder the GOP always wins the war on messaging.

Obama is winning the war on messaging. Pretty easily. He's way more popular than the GOP, and voters greatly prefer his method for handling the budget to the GOP's. It doesn't matter; the GOP just re-won the House. They have no reason to compromise unless they lose elections, which is extremely unlikely given the composition of House districts.

The GOP is polling poorly at the outset of the sequester.  They will hammer home lie after lie after lie after lie and never relent, never shift, never budge and abuse their position and the media's fixation on equal blame and they will win this war on messaging.  I've seen it too many times.  The Democrats are not interested in getting down and fighting back when this happens.  They assume people are paying attention to the facts but they aren't.  They are paying attention to stupid farking soundbites, and Boehner on Meet the Press, and whatever nonsense.

Obama won the election because the GOP put up a monumentally stupid candidate to placate monumentally stupid voters.  They have a stupid cast, they have a stupid supporting structure, but they have a blithely incompetent media that they can use to make sure that no matter how much they fark every single thing up, that they will only receive 50% of the blame, even when they get 98% of what they want.
