Here is video of NBC News’ Chuck Todd on “Today” this morning where he said as many as ten Democratic U.S. Senators could vote against President Obama’s nominee to be the next Secretary of Defense – former Sen. Chuck Hagel. Todd also reported that Obama will nominate John Brennan to become CIA Director.
Here is video of the liberals at MSNBC agreeing with each other about the need to go after guns in America – and Chuck Todd helpfully also wants to warn parents about the evils of video games too.
Allahpundit at Hot Air has a great write-up about this.
The Left is apoplectic that Barack Obama decided to throw Susan Rice under the bus. I didn’t know that she was such a darling of the liberal media.
Here is video of NBC News’ Chuck Todd calling her a “victim” and “collateral damage” of “talk radio” and “conservative media outlets.” Todd decried “advocacy media” on the Republican side, all the while pretending what he and NBC does is not “advocacy media!” It’s absolutely crazy! All they have done for five years is advocate on behalf of Barack Obama.
Here is video of Fox News’ James Rosen confronting White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about President Obama’s “photo-op” trip to Pennsylvania planned to push for tax increases as part of the “Fiscal Cliff” negotiations. NBC News’ Chuck Todd chimed in that it looks like everyone is just “killing time” until the final week of the session ahead of the Christmas break when a deal will actually get done.
Here is video of President Barack Obama’s statement at the White House today, where he called on Congress to support his desire to raise taxes. At the same time, the man who has already been President nearly four years says his number one priority is “jobs and growth.”
Obama took no questions at the White House event, and NBC News’ Chuck Todd said Obama had invited guests to the event in the East Room and had placed them strategically between himself and the press so that the media would even have a hard time shouting questions at him. Todd noted that Obama’s unwillingness to talk to the media did not follow the precedent of previous Presidents following re-election, and pointed out that House Speaker John Boehner did hold a Press Conference today.
Obama said he would meet with House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid next week to talk about how to avoid the looming “Fiscal Cliff.”
So when will President Obama hold a formal press conference?— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) November 9, 2012
Bush gave a press conference after reelection, Clinton did too, and Reagan. Obama gave a statement with no questions.— Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) November 9, 2012
Here is video of NBC News’ Chuck Todd today on “Morning Joe” where he was served up the opportunity to affirm a Time Magazine poll yesterday that showed Barack Obama with a 5-pt. lead in the state of Ohio. Todd not only did not affirm that number, he said what he hears from the campaigns is that it is “essentially tied” – meaning less than 2-points. Interestingly, Todd went on to say:
“I’m getting a sense now from the Democratic side acknowledging that this race got a lot tighter.”
Appearing on “Morning Joe” today, here is NBC News’ Chuck Todd saying that it is Mitt Romney who has the advantages going into the final two weeks of the Presidential Campaign. Todd said that a challenger tied with an incumbent President at 47%-47% with two weeks to go – “I’d say seven times out of ten challenger wins that race.”
Here is video of NBC News’ Chuck Todd and Politico’s Jonathan Martin telling MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that one of two conclusions will happen to the 2012 Presidential Election. Either Barack Obama will “sweat out” a very narrou electoral victory, or Mitt Romney will break through and sweep the Battleground States.
Jonathan Martin: “Either the Obama campaign is gonna sweat out an electoral vote victory…Or we do see that national swing toward Romney and “he sweeps it.”"
The liberal media know they are running out of time to cover for Obama. They are setting the stage for a “big turn toward Romney” that has likely been happening for weeks.
Here is video of NBC News’ Chuck Todd saying Barack Obama’s message “feels like the past.” It is clear Obama is not telling anyone what he will do with a second term. Certainly more of the same is not what the nation needs.
Here is NBC News’ Chuck Todd on “Morning Joe” today where he said it appears to him that a structural change has taken place in the 2012 Presidential Race, and Barack Obama’s advantage in the key Battleground States “is now gone.” Todd said Obama still has a slight edge in Ohio, but that it is fading fast. He said the 2nd Presidential Debate tomorrow night is critical for Obama to do well in, or he will be facing a deficit that will be difficult to overcome.
Here is video from “Morning Joe” on MSNBC today, where Mike Barnicle asked Chuck Todd what he is hearing about “the cold hand of fear gripping Chicago” – meaning the Obama Campaign. Chuck Todd’s response: “Well, it is.”
Todd said the Obama Campaign is trying to be careful about showing any overt changes that would reveal that fear, but he is hearing they are making some changes, particularly in who is going to work with Obama on debate prep.
