Wow, Andrea Mitchell cut the GOP spokeswoman off at the knees...

I wonder if she is getting swept up in how truly rewarding it is to call a hack on their hackery.

And I would rather see her do the same thing if a democrat just parrots talking points if she keeps giving it to the GOP.

I truly believe that the people on our side are ready willing and able to logically defend our positions. I truly believe the GOP has been getting away with this crap for so long they do not how to deal with a real fair and balanced news team.

Loose the hounds and let the games begin.


Sorry about he confusion but Ms. Mitchell was repeatedly asking the woman who was representing Romney on her show to name one time when president Obama apologized for America in the Middle East. She kept at it but by the time I got to the computer, the GOP mouthpiece was gone.

That was the crux of it. And Ms. Mitchell was relentless, repeating a couple of times for an example and the GOP mouthpiece could not.

repeating, several times, that the person on the GOP show one instance where president Obama apologized for the United States...

And before I could get to the table and write down the woman's name, they had gone to commercial.

It was the best I could do.

I think some expect them to be 100% on our side. Or, if someone lets a GOP spokesperson speak they are accommodating them.

I saw Wolf Blitzer call someone out for using "democrat" in the wrong context.

it was pathetic, and the GOP woman kept harping on her talking points and trying to talk over her.

and wants to keep doing it. She sees which way the wind is blowing.

Do people really believe that any of these major media players are suddenly discovering that they were really liberals all along?

Every last one of them is well into the 1%.

who used to be a spokesperson for Rick Santorum and I've seen her on TV recently representing Mitt Romney. Does that ring a bell? She is annoying as hell.

Andrea was getting in her face. It actually reminded me of when she did stand-up interviews or reports for NBC Nightly News.

The woman was flabbergasted.

I've been waiting for someone to challenge her. She just did the same thing a few days ago and it drove me nuts - "Make her answer the question!!!"

She said something to Thomas Roberts (I think) about the 716 billion dollars that Obama "stole" from Medicare, blah, blah, blah and Roberts corrected her. She just repeated the lame talking point as if nothing had happened. Terrible spokesperson.

I misread your OP, and had just come across the Soledad bit so it was fresh on my mind. It was the same topic/talking point of the President "apologizing."
