I watched this through tear-streaked cheeks. This man is one class act. He lead Fox News “Special Report” nightly at 6PM for the evening news. Brit always had a wry, witty smile and quip, and he was such a gentle man. He’s not physically gone, but his presence at 6pm will be sorely missed.
What a moving tribute to him that his staff put together, not to mention the inclusion of his long-time co-worker from ABC, Charlie Gibson.
Like I said… one class act. Brit, you will be missed by all. Tony is also wishing you well, and you know it. I’m glad you’re sticking around for commentary, so we can wean ourselves off of you in your retirement.
And don’t forget… Brit promised, in his retirement, to concentrate on the “3 Gs: Golf, God & Grandkids.” And not in that particular order. What a great man.
Well, that’s according to the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart, who was on Morning Joe today to discuss the pros and cons of Obama’s selection of Pastor Rick Warren to give the invocation at PEBO’s inauguration in Washington D.C. I won’t go into detail about what I think; I’ll just let you read the transcript I prepared. Trust me.. this one’s a doozy! I will say that the transcript begins right after Pat Buchanan is asking Jonathan if he thinks activist judges should make decisions for the country, instead of the people making those decisions.
CAPEHART: As an African-American, Iâ€™m perfectly fine with so-called activist judges trying to get people to do the right thing.
BUCHANAN: When you say â€˜do the right thing,â€™ who decides whatâ€™s the right thing? The voters in 30 states have said â€˜no, itâ€™s the wrong thing,â€™ and you get some unelected judge says itâ€™s the right thing. Who decides?
CAPEHART: And during the civil rights movement you had the people that if, given the opportunity to vote whether African-Americans should have the right to vote, the right to be full American citizens, they would have voted against it. Were it not for judges saying â€˜this is what you must do,â€™â€¦
