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.”
