…but does he even realize it? I mean seriously, he came off looking so pompous and arrogant that I don’t even think he knows what happened to him. This was DEFINITELY a segment worthy of O’Reilly’s body language expert, Tonya Reiman. As you watch this whole video (I know it’s long, but it’s so worth it), keep an eye on Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s body language and see if you don’t see the same thing I did. I would say he’s really offended by Gregory’s lack of knowledge on the Palestinian/Israeli situation, but that would be offensive on MY part because Netanyahu is way too smart to even acknowledge this pleeb and his arguments.
Here’s a portion of the transcript that is particularly telling of the mood:
MR. GREGORY: So I’m, I’m not making a judgment, I, I’m simply kind of reading where we are. Let, let me ask you this question, Israel is arguably as isolated as it’s ever been in the midst of Arab spring. Turkey has turned against you, the Arab world has moved away from dictators who supported Israel, had peace treaties with Israel, and is now more negative towards Israel. In this day and age, at this particular moment, despite Israel’s well-known and substantial security concerns, how can you occupy Palestinian territory at this moment?
My. Dear. Lord. What is wrong with these people? I seriously have no words for this except that it’s this tripe that is dividing this country…not the disparity in “wealth” or some woman paying $1,500 OF HER OWN DAMN MONEY for shoes.
Someone please get Mika to The Wizard, for she desperately needs a brain.
Wow! I think I’ve just seen a future President in this interview. And no, it’s not David Gregory. David kept trying to trip Marco up, but he was too deft for that. It appeared to me that Gregory was trying to make Rubio say something he would regret, but there was no chance of that. Marco is dead-on with his assessments, and you can tell he has the courage of his convictions. Watch the future President of the United States, Marco Rubio, win this round over Gregogry.
A combative Chris Matthews accuses Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) of being “hypnotized” and under a “trance.”
Bachmann says we’re out of this “nightmare” and “we’re thrilled.”
“I think people are thrilling tonight, I imagine that thrill is maybe not quite so tingly on your leg anymore, I’m not sure anymore,” Rep. Bachmann told Matthews.
After the interview, a purple-faced Matthews said “I never used that word” and called Bachmann a moron.
Then the rest of the MSNBC brain-trust, Olbermann & Maddow, chime in with their derogatory sneers about Ms. Bachmann. I guess they should just be happy that at least three people were watching their cable show tonight…at least long enough to tape this segment of it.
But Fox? That’s just pure GOP propaganda. Sure, E.J. And the Washington Post is a bastion of “fair and balanced” news, as well. Oh, and yes, there are MANY people more conservative than David Brooke, E.J. Like… all of them.
