Gene “You’ll Regret This” Sperling on Meet the Press

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:18 am

David Gregory interviews Sperling, puts videotape in his face of Obama saying (in a debate) that he didn’t propose the sequester. Gregory says “that’s not accurate.” (Now they tell us!) Sperling is then asked whether the President was right or wrong.

Of course he says he was right.

Gregory’s gonna regret this.

  3. Funny how he used Chait as his model of rhetoric.

    Why doesn’t one single MFM person ask them why they are demanding more revenue after just raising taxes on the evil folks?

  5. I forced myself to watch Gregory this morning because I wanted to see what Boehner had to say. To me, Boehner did much better than I had expected and though Gregory sounded hostile at times I did not feel he was as egregiously so as usual with a Republican interviewee. Boeher did a staller job in getting across the utter lack of contribution from the U.S. Senate or the president with regards to budgeting or avoiding the sequester, IMO, and I think it may leave a mark. He was pretty good at his description of the two budget bills passed by the House and ignored by the senate and reminded that the president’s just gotten what he wanted–tax increases on the wealthy– and now it’s time to address the spending side of the equation.

    Sperling was smarmy and his talking point laden soliloquys were often not remotely responsive to Gregory’s specific question and a couple times Gregory cut him off and asked again. Sperling kept saying “the president has a plan and the Republicans won’t budge”. He waved his laminated page plan at Gregory and Gregory shot back “why was not that plan ever put forth into a bill”?

    If others from our commenting community watched the show I’d be curious what you thought about the segment and the Chris Matthews show which followed.

  6. re: #3… that was a rhetorical question… right, JD?

  7. Elissa – did Gregory ask them about Obama’s vow to veto changes to sequester? Or his veto threat on Thursday to a bill that Sen Dems defeats to give him more flexibility on how to implement his own idea? Or the House bills that they ignored? Or how many times revenue is on the table?

  8. 5. elissa, I can’t watch the insanity anymore, reading about it is enough to make me throw up.

  9. Here again is Mr. Schiff whose cold gruel Rico has featured B4.

    The somewhat sucky takeaway is–things cannot get better, only worse.

    Bloomberg expects Ben to buy 90% of US Bonds(10 thru 30-year maturities) in 2013. At zero percent interest the Treasury is still spending 10% of revenues on debt interest payments.

    So we can’t ever stop deflating the dollar at roughly 10 percent per annum. We’d blow the doors off, ditch or no.

  10. I thought the Sperling-to-Woodward email was complaining about Woodward’s “Obama moved the goalposts” comment, not Woodward’s “Obama suggested the sequester” reportage.

    Either way, what a lying liar Sperling is.
